Rio Bravo (1959) Poster


Walter Brennan: Stumpy



  • John T. Chance : You're not as smart as your brother, Joe. He sees Stumpy here sittin' around the corner locked in with you... and if that isn't plain enough, I'll tell you why. If any trouble starts around this jail, before anybody can get to you you're gonna get accidentally shot.

    Stumpy : I can practical' guarantee that!

  • John T. Chance : [Referring to Colorado]  It's nice to see a smart kid for a change.

    Stumpy : Yeah, he ain't like the usual kid with a gun.

    Dude : Wonder if he's as good as Wheeler said?

    John T. Chance : I'd say he is.

    John T. Chance : I'd say he's so good, he doesn't feel he has to prove it.

  • Stumpy : Joe don't get no sugar in his coffee; he just gets water poured over the grounds.

  • [Stumpy throws some dynamite at the warehouse and Chance shoots it, causing an explosion] 

    Stumpy : Hey, Dude! How do ya like them apples?

  • [last lines] 

    Stumpy : You think I'll ever get to be a sheriff?

    Dude : Not unless you mind your own business.

    [Stumpy cackles] 

  • John T. Chance : Stumpy!

    Stumpy : What?

    [Stops playing harmonica] 

    John T. Chance : They don't need any help with that tune.

    Stumpy : What's the matter? Is it getting through to you? Yiuk, yiuk!


  • John T. Chance : Stumpy?

    Stumpy : Yeah?

    John T. Chance : Going over to the hotel for a few minutes.

    Stumpy : Well, if'n ya don't come back, me 'n' Joe'll have us a good cry.
