Best Beth Dutton Quotes:
1. “Just tell me who to fight.”
Beth is a strong woman that follows in her father’s footsteps and is going to do the impossible for her clan. Fighting is something she does on daily basis and protecting her family is in her blood. When she speaks others listen and if she doesn’t like what they say she always has something very smart and unexpected to give back.
It is better to be on her good side than to do something she can use against you. Fans of the show find this quote powerful and intimidating, and they want their favorite character to express herself more.
2. “You are the trailer park. I am the tornado.”
In a conversation Beth has with Roarke Morris had many things come out. She is fighting for her family’s legacy while he is only seeing a profit. While she understands the importance of profit she won’t turn her back on her family.
She is ready to fight with everything she has, and come after everyone who tries to hurt her family. When Roarke asks if she is going to come after him with a hitman, she just shrugs. It is not about if she would do it, it is about that she would do anything. She will come after his firm like a tornado after a trailer park.
3. “I made two bad decisions in my life based on fear, and they cost me everything.”
Acknowledging that she has made mistakes are making her strong and now weak. She knows what she has done wrong, and for her living in fear is like not living at al. After making mistakes out of fear she realizes that the only way forward is to eliminate fear from her life.
Being fearless is harder than people think, and defending everything you have is not as simple as giving up. Everyone can give up, but not everyone can hold on to the important things, even if it puts you in danger.
4. “I see things in people, and I feel like if I can touch it, even if the rest of the person is rotten, I can take that good thing and I can make it part of me.”
Beth Dutton sees through people and she can feel what are they hiding behind their words. This is shown in many scenes, making her the ultimate mind reader. She can smell someone’s fear and if someone is dishonest.
Being direct and telling people what she thinks is her defense and offense at the same time. Trusting doesn’t come easy after you’ve been hurt multiple times.
5. “Don’t judge us for the way we’re protecting the thing we’re giving you.”
When talking to a newcomer that doesn’t understand the place she came to, Beth is slightly frustrated. Her love for her land and her family is enormous and even that she can share she will keep it to herself if she has to.
Beth doesn’t have too much patience for those who can’t fit in. She is unique and special and knows that waiting for people is not an option. Protection is her main selling point and her major characteristic. Being able to protect those she loves is her duty and her pride.
6. “I know that now, and now is all that matters.”
Past, although it is important because it has shaped our lives, is never as important as the present moment. If something was done in the past it doesn’t have to determine our future and the course of our lives or decisions.
Beth knows the importance of the present and she is looking forward to the future, making sure that her family’s future is safe and that her father’s legacy is secured. Having insight into the past, present, and future allows her to be confident and fierce. She is smart and she is not afraid to show it.
7. “Wow, that’s really deep, Jamie. You must be watching TED Talks on YouTube.”
She hates Jamie, for a good reason, and she uses every opportunity to burn him with words. To her, he is not worth her time, and she looks bored and frustrated with him.
In this scene, he tries to insults her by saying: “Cancer is suicide from inside out. That’s what you are, Beth.” With her quick and smart comeback, she shuts him down, leaving him speechless. It is obvious they are not each other’s favorites, and calling each other names is the way they communicate.
8. “I think heaven’s right here. So’s hell. One person can be walking the clouds right next to someone enduring eternal damnation. And God is the land.”
Her deep thoughts about life are profound, letting us know what’s inside her head and what her beliefs are. She believes heaven and hell are on Earth, and we are the ones creating it. If we don’t respect the land, God as she calls it, we will see hell and suffer.
It doesn’t mean literally the hell is on Earth, it means that we are all responsible for our actions and that we can also make hell or heaven for others too. Being kind is a virtue but not always useful in this world.
9. “Where’s the fun in wrecking a single man? When I break you, I want to know I’m breaking generations.”
With Beth, everything is a consequence of your own actions. If you cross her or someone she cares about she will be unstoppable and you will know it after only one conversation.
She is giving life to the show with fearless thoughts, making her world spin around her. Those who have stepped on her toes will not be happy for long. Make sure not to break a promise or do something mean to a person that is lioness for her family.
10. “For someone with no spine, you’ve sure got a lot of balls.”
Beth Dutton is a woman in a men’s world that rules with no restrictions. Beth will insult you and tell you her opinion in a colorful way that stuns those who are not used to her honesty.
The worst thing about people with no integrity is when they are persistent, and those who have to deal with them need a lot of nerve. Beth doesn’t have the nerve needed and she goes straight for the head, with remarkable replies. Someone with no spine is someone without principle, and for that person to be persistent is just thoughtless.
11. “You can’t unmake family, Jamie, but you can take their gold card.”
Although protective of her family Beth has a real hatred for her brother. This comes from the fact that she blames him for her infertility because he made a decision on her behalf to have her undergo a procedure that left her without a baby and without the possibility to have one.
At every possible moment, she will tell him how much she suffers through mean words and hatred. He maybe doesn’t deserve better from her, but this story from the past is putting everyone under a lot of pressure they can’t escape.
12. “Well, that’s what it means. It means that you have me, that I’m yours. It means come live your life with me. The only thing I ask is that you outlive me so I never live another day without you.”
What a beautiful way to tell someone you love them. She is not afraid to be the one to ask for the hand in the marriage of a man she loves. Rip is stunned but he knows what he is getting into, he is the one that knows her the best.
Beth has decided that it is time for her to be happy, and she takes the steps towards the goal. Having so much experience in life and going through so much made her tough but also vulnerable.
13. “Everything I do is for him, and everything you do is for you.”
This tells us about selfishness. You all know those people that will do only things that are good for them but won’t bother to do anything for anyone else. Not everything is black and white like that, and of course, sometimes people surprise us.
But to those who are selfless and who do everything for others from pure love, being hurt by selfish people really goes deep into the heart. Pain can change a person and Beth knows that she has to choose who to stand up for and who to skip.
14. “I believe in lovin’ with your whole soul and destroying anything that wants to kill what you love. That’s it. That’s all there is.”
For Beth love is simple, it is selfless, it is caring, and it does everything for the other person. Her love has no end, and if she loves you, you are protected. Being loved by a person like this is a true gift.
Beth Dutton is confident, proud, and a go-getter. And when she loves she loves with her whole soul. After realizing her love she is ready for everything to get what she wants and also to make the other person happy.
15. “You should try Zumba. Get your cardio up.”
One of the funniest burns she said on the show. Beth had bought us already in season one without being afraid to insult others. In all of her insults there is some truth, she just doesn’t hide what she thinks like everyone else.
People that met her know they should not mess with her. In this scene she frightened wolves, what else can we say about this woman. Someone might call her toxic, like her brother Jamie, but we know the truth, she is just awesome!
16. “Every so often, you say something that makes me think you’re smart. And then I look at you, and that thought fades.”
In one of the toughest scenes of Beth and her brother, they are arguing until she tells him it’s the day their mother died, and he didn’t remember. He basically called her out for drinking and behaving badly, but after realizing the reason it wasn’t funny anymore.
She is a stronger person than her brother and she looks deep into people, that is why her life isn’t simple. Having so many feelings and carrying them around must be a hard thing to do.
17. “My mother was the spine of this family. She was the center. Without her, he’s, well the best of him died with her.”
The love of her mother and father was endless and no matter how much time passes her father will suffer in silence and he will never be the same. She feels his pain and she takes a piece of it on her shoulders, to make his life easier.
She is like her mother, strong and independent, carrying so much on her own. Knowing the true worth of her mother is very painful to her and sometimes she feels like others don’t have the same burden.
18. “I have been down this road many, many times before, buddy. And no one who tried it is alive to tell you how poorly that worked out for them.”
Her competitor obviously doesn’t know what he is going against. He wants them to cooperate in peace and he wants her to understand his point of view. But what is a job for him, for her is life.
She tells him what has happened to others who tried to cross her and that she won’t give up. Even if she agrees with him on some topics she will still stand by her family.
19. “That’s a conversation for another time that we’ll never have.”
A woman like Beth doesn’t waste her time on meaningless conversations and unimportant people. She said what she had to say and prolonging the conversation like this would be just painful.
Her word is the last and she knows best what is in her interest. Also, if Beth doesn’t want to do something, she simply won’t do it. This was a smart way to say she won’t give you another minute of her life.
20. “I’m chopping your family tree down.”
Beth is not just a simple woman you would find anywhere, she hides a lot of strength behind her smile. In this scene, she goes from a girl in a bar to a dangerous femme fatale in a second. After threatening her competitor that she will chop off his family tree by sleeping with his wife and with his brother, she doesn’t smile anymore.
It doesn’t take long for anyone who crosses her path to get a little bit of her spice. With a serious face and look straight into the eyes of the opposition she shows her territory and where will you end up if you cross her.
