The Best 'Yellowstone' Quotes From Every Member of the Dutton Crew


It's no secret that I personally think Yellowstone is one of the best TV shows on the air right now. The iconic cast has made it easy to get sucked right into the world of the Dutton family and all of the happenings on Yellowstone Ranch.

I've rounded up some of the best Yellowstone quotes from all of the show's main characters. While Beth (Kelly Reilly), Rip (Cole Hauser), and John (Kevin Costner) have some of the best lines, I've also included some good ones from Jamie (Wes Bentley), Kayce (Luke Grimes), Monica (Kelsey Asbille), and some of the Bunkhouse Boys. You'll feel transported right to Montana reliving some of these moments from the popular show!
