Lawyer Daggett: Am I addressing Marshal Reuben J. Cogburn? Rooster Cogburn: You're addressing him, Chen Lee and General Sterling Price. Lawyer Daggett: Well... I'll not ask which is which. But I'll identify myself: I am lawyer J. Noble Daggett. Rooster Cogburn: I'll be damned! Lawyer Daggett: What? Rooster Cogburn: Well, you're not... exactly what we expected. You're a little... You're shrunk! Lawyer Daggett: I'll tell you frankly. I fully intended to have you jailed, and I'm just the man who could do it. But when Mattie told me the straight of the matter, I had second thoughts. I still think you showed poor judgment in this affair, but you're not the scoundrel I took you for. You have my thanks and, with certain reservations, my respect.
