With the help of a German bounty hunter , a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

[aiming .45-70 rifle at fleeing Ellis Brittle] You sure that’s him?
Dr. King Schultz
Yeah.
Django
Positive?
Dr. King Schultz
I don’t know.
Django
You don’t know if you’re positive?
Dr. King Schultz
I don’t know what ‘positive’ means.
Django
It means you’re sure.
Dr. King Schultz
Yes.
Django
Yes, what?
Dr. King Schultz
Yes, I’m sure that’s Ellis Brittle.
Django
[Schultz shoots Brittle off his horse]
I’m positive he dead.
Django

I count six shots, nigger.
Stephen
[pulls out a second revolver] I count two guns, nigger.
Django

How do you like the bounty hunting business?
Dr. King Schultz
Kill white people and get paid for it? What’s not to like?
Django

White cake?
Calvin Candie
I don’t go in for sweets, thank you.
Dr. King Schultz
Are you brooding ’bout me getting the best of ya, huh?
Calvin Candie
Actually, I was thinking of that poor devil you fed to the dogs today, D’Artagnan. And I was wondering what Dumas would make of all this.
Dr. King Schultz
Come again?
Calvin Candie
Alexander Dumas. He wrote “The Three Musketeers.” I figured you must be an admirer. You named your slave after his novel’s lead character. If Alexander Dumas had been there today, I wonder what he would have made of it?
Dr. King Schultz
You doubt he’d approve?
Calvin Candie
Yes. His approval would be a dubious proposition at best.
Dr. King Schultz
Soft hearted Frenchy?
Calvin Candie
Alexander Dumas is black.
Dr. King Schultz

[to Django] So, bright boy, Moguy tells me you looked over my African flesh and you was none too impressed, huh?
Calvin Candie
Not for top dollar.
Django
Well, then, we got nothing more to talk about. You see, you want to buy a beat ass nigger from me, those are the beat ass niggers I want to sell, so…
Calvin Candie
He don’t wanna buy the niggers you wanna sell. He wants the nigger you don’t wanna sell.
Django
Well, I don’t sell the niggers I don’t wanna sell.
Calvin Candie
Well, you won’t sell your best. You won’t even sell your second best, but your third best? You don’t wanna sell either, but if I made you an offer so ridiculous, you’d be forced to consider it?
Dr. King Schultz
[laughs]
Who knows what could happen?
Dr. King Schultz
And what do you consider “ridiculous?”
Calvin Candie
For a truly talented specimen, the right nigger? How much would you say, Django?
Dr. King Schultz
…12,000 dollars.
Django
Gentleman, you had my curiosity, now you have my attention.
Calvin Candie

[Franco Nero played the original Django] What’s your name?
Amerigo Vessepi
Django.
Django
Can you spell it?
Amerigo Vessepi
D-J-A-N-G-O. The D is silent.
Django
I know.
Amerigo Vessepi

Hey, little troublemaker.
– Django

Well, Broomhilda was a princess. She was a daughter of Wotan, god of all gods. Anyways, Her father is really mad at her.
Dr. King Schultz
What she do?
Django
I can’t exactly remember. She disobeys him in some way. So he puts her on top of the mountain.
Dr. King Schultz
Broomhilda’s on a mountain?
Django
It’s a German legend, there’s always going to be a mountain in there somewhere. And he puts a fire-breathing dragon there to guard the mountain. And he surrounds her in a circle of hellfire. And there, Broomhilda shall remain. Unless a hero arises brave enough to save her.
Dr. King Schultz
Does a fella arise?
Django
Yes, Django, as a matter of fact, he does. A fella named Siegfried.
Dr. King Schultz
Does Siegfried save her?
Django
[Nods] Quiet spectacularly so. He scales the mountain, because he’s not afraid of it. He slays the dragon, because he’s not afraid of him. And he walks through hellfire… because Broomhilda’s worth it.
Dr. King Schultz
I know how he feel.
Django

[to Big John Brittle] I like the way you die, boy.
– Django

You said in seventy-six years on this plantation, you’ve seen all manner of shit done to niggers but I notice… you didn’t mention kneecapping.
Django
[Django shoots Stephen in the kneecap]
Oh, God! Motherfucker! Damn it!
Stephen
Seventy-six years, Stephen. How many niggers you think you seen come and go? Seven thousand? Eight thousand? Nine thousand? Nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine? Every single word that came out of Calvin Candie’s mouth was nothing but horseshit, but he was right about one thing: I am that one nigger in ten thousand.
Django
[He shoots Stephen in the other kneecap]
Oh, you son of a bitch! Oh, you motherfucker! Oh, sweet Jesus, let me kill this nigger!
Stephen

[gentlemanly] Cora, before you go, will you tell Miss Lara “goodbye”?
Django
Do what now?
Cora
I said, “tell Miss Lara goodbye!”
Django
Bye, Miss Lara!
Cora
[quickly shoots Miss Lara, who is comically blown away into another room] Y’all two run along now!
Django

What’cha do for your massa’?
Betina
Didn’t you hear him tell ya, I ain’t no slave?
Django
So, you really free?
Betina
 Yeah, I is free.
Django
So, you wanna dress like that?
Betina

DJANGO! You uppity son of a b…
Stephen
[Plantation blows up]

 

You silver tongued devil, you.
Dr. King Schultz

[cocks rifle] Who’s that stumblin’ around in the dark? State your business or prepare to get winged!
– Dicky Speck

I wish to parley with you.
Dr. King Schultz
Speak English.
Dicky Speck
Oh, I’m sorry, please forgive me. it *is* a second language.
Dr. King Schultz
