    Colonel Dolarhyde: "What is that thing?"
    Jake: "Why are you asking me?"
    Colonel Dolarhyde: "Because you shot it!"

    Great dialogue between everyone's favorite action stars: Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig. The cast for 'Cowboys & Aliens' is definitely off the hook, and the interaction between Ford, as a curmudgeonly colonel, and Craig, as the alien-battling stranger "Jake," makes for some memorable quotes!

    v
    Sheriff John Taggart: "Jake Lonergan, you mind following me over to the office so we can have us a little chat?"
    Jake: "I think you've got the wrong man."
    Sherrif Taggart: "Well, I'm gonna need you to come with us all the same."
    Jake: "I wouldn't do that if I was you." (Jake proceeds to fight the lawmen and winds up taking his gun, with plans to shoot the sheriff)
    Emmett Taggart: "No!"
    Jake: (looking down the gun barrel) "I don't want any trouble."

    When Sheriff John Taggart (Keith Carradine) finds Jake in the saloon, a classic Western-style battle ensues. Jake says he doesn't want any trouble - yet he doesn't hesitate to defend himself, pointing the gun at the sheriff. He's interrupted by the sheriff's son, Emmett (Noah Ringer).

    Ella: "If we don't stop them, there will be no survivors."

    Ella definitely has the right idea. These aliens are taking everyone, abduction by abduction. If this group can't find a way to pull together and battle the enemy, they're goners.
