From Texas Standard:
Spoiler alert! In case you've been under a rock in Ogallala for the last three decades, this story contains spoilers for "Lonesome Dove."
Since I am, like many Texans, an amateur expert on "Lonesome Dove," people often ask me what I figure are the most loved quotes from the miniseries.
If I were wise, I would just say any of a hundred quotes could be someone’s number one, and leave it at that. But I have never let lack of wisdom stop me. I cannot resist the challenge of making a list. I know it is a delicate business; it is holy ground.
