Embrace Your Inner Dutton with These Unforgettable 'Yellowstone' Quotes

As fans of one of cable TV's most popular shows wait for news of the season 4 return, what's there to do but watch (and rewatch) the first three seasons and reminisce about your favorite scenes (there are too many to choose from!).

With its cast of powerful characters and their larger-than-life personalities, the show is a quote machine. A single sentence from John Dutton (Kevin Costner) can stop you in your tracks, and there's nothing like a one-liner from Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) to make your blood run cold. But it's not all serious: The ranch hands always provide some laugh-out-loud moments with their bunkhouse antics. With a new season on the horizon and two new spinoffs in the works (6666 and Y:1883), we can only expect this list to keep growing with more lines about family, power and love.
