This short cigar belongs to a man with no name. This long gun belongs to a man with no name. This poncho belongs to a man with no name. He's going to trigger a whole new style in adventure.

The Man With No Name

  • Aim for the heart, Ramon.
  • [Before a gunfight, to the undertaker.] Get three coffins ready.
  • [After same gunfight, to the undertaker] My mistake: four coffins.
  • The Rojos on one side of town, the Baxters on the other, and me right in the middle.
  • [The four Baxters aren't apologizing for laughing at his mule] I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. Gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it...
  • (To Ramon) "When the man with a 45 meets the man with a rifle, you said the man with a pistol is a dead man" (load his gun). Let's see if it's true.
  • Hello. (First line)
  • Sometimes the dead can be more useful than the living.
  • (Quoting Don Miguel Rojo) A man's life in these parts often depends on a mere scrap of information.
  • (Soon after quoting Don Miguel Rojo) Five hundred dollars.

Ramon Rojo
