A review from The Guardian:
The dialogue would make Tarentino jump for joy -- some of seems like it would work as well if it were in "Pulp Fiction" (except for cowboy references, but why no a cowboy in "Pulp Fiction" -- I really miss a cowboy in that movie).
Memorable quotes for
Johnny Guitar (1954)
Johnny: There's only two things in this world that a 'real man' needs: a cup of coffee and a good smoke.
Dancin' Kid: I didn't get your name stranger.
Johnny: Guitar. Johnny Guitar.
Dancin' Kid: You call that a name?
Johnny: Care to try and change it?
Dancin' Kid: I like you, Guitar Man. How'd you like to work for me?
Johnny: I wouldn't.
Dancin' Kid: Now all of a sudden I don't like you.
Johnny: Now that makes me real sad.
Johnny: How many men have you forgotten?
Vienna: As many women as you've remembered.
Johnny: Don't go away.
Vienna: I haven't moved.
Johnny: Tell me something nice.
Vienna: Sure, what do you want to hear?
Johnny: Lie to me. Tell me all these years you've waited. Tell me.
Vienna: [without feeling] All those years I've waited.
Johnny: Tell me you'd a-died if I hadn't come back.
Vienna: [without feeling] I woulda died if you hadn't come back.
Johnny: Tell me you still love me like I love you.
Vienna: [without feeling] I still love you like you love me.
Johnny: [bitterly] Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Emma: You're nothing but a railroad tramp.
Emma: I'm going to kill you.
Vienna: I know. If I don't kill you first.
Dancin' Kid: Bart, you don't drink, you don't smoke, you're mean to horses. What do you like?
Bart: Me! I like me! And I'm takin' good care of me!
Vienna: You shouldn't have come back, Tom.
Old Tom: I won't be in the way.
Vienna: I can't have anyone here.
Old Tom: Nobody notices me. I'm just part of the furniture.
Vienna: Down there I sell whiskey and cards. All you can buy up these stairs is a bullet in the head. Now which do you want?
Vienna: If you remember, McGyvers gave me 24 hours to close. I drew out my own money, paid off my boys... and I'm closed. You can't buy a drink or turn a card. I'm sitting here in my own house, minding my own business, playing my own piano. I don't think you can make a crime out of that.
Johnny: [starting a song] Her name was Emma Smalls, Emma Smalls.
Emma: You all think she's some fine lady and that doing nothing makes you fine gentlemen. Well she ain't! And you're not!
Old Tom: [dying words] Look... everybody's looking at me. It's the first time I ever felt important.
Remember Nicholas Ray was the same director who gave us "Rebel Without a Cause" and "They Live By Night" (his first feature film out of the UK)
