Westworld is a lot of things and many of them are hard to pin down. We aren't really sure if the show is a western, a sci-fi, a mediative look at power dynamics, or a mystery-box drama filled with sexy robots. But that doesn't make it any less great.
If there's one thing we do know about Westworld for sure, however, it's that the show is far more quotable than it has any right to be. From insightful lines spoken by the hosts to just plain funny quips that come as a result of modern people living in a wild west world, the series has always had a way with dialogue.
So let's take a trip into the saloon filled with the best Westworld quotes and find out if these violent delights really do have violent ends, shall we, partner?

Maeve Millay: At first, I thought you and the others were gods. Then I realized you’re just men. And I know men. You think I’m scared of death? I’ve done it a million times. I’m f*cking great at it. How many times have you died? Because if you don’t help me… I’ll kill you.

Dr. Robert Ford: There is no threshold that makes us greater than the sum of our parts, no inflection point at which we become fully alive. We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.

William: I’ve been pretending my whole life. Pretending I don’t mind, pretending I belong. My life’s built on it. And it’s a good life. It’s a life I’ve always wanted. But then I came here and I get a glimpse for a second of a life in which I don’t have to pretend. A life in which I can be truly alive. How can I go back to pretending when I know what this feels like?
