Hero Quote Audio
Ana
  • McCree: It's an honor fighting by your side, ma'am.
  • Ana: Heh, you always were a charmer.
Ashe
  • McCree: Ashe, how about we let bygones be bygones?
  • Ashe: Aw, you know that's not the way it works, Jesse.
  • McCree: I was hoping you'd make an exception, for old times' sake.
  • McCree: You always were the ambitious one.
  • Ashe: You make that sound like a bad thing. You'd still be on a farm if it weren't for me.
  • McCree: Sometimes, it doesn't feel like a bad thing...
  • Ashe: Brave of you to show your face around here, Jesse.
  • McCree: Well, I know how much you missed me. Still have a picture of me at the hide-out, I hear.
  • Ashe: On the dartboard.
  • McCree: Bet you look at it every day. Flattering, really.

  • McCree: You have a nice bike there, Ashe.
  • Ashe: What did you do with it Jesse?!
  • McCree: Parked it somewhere... Can't remember where I put the keys...
  • McCree: You know, you never were my type Ashe.
  • Ashe: Too competent?
  • McCree: Too rich.
  • McCree: And how's B.O.B?
  • Ashe: He's just fine. Thank you for your concern.
Brigitte
  • McCree: Believe me, I-I'd get wanting to wear the armor and all, but following the old man around must be nothing but trouble.
  • Brigitte: I don't see it that way... To me, it's an honor.
D.Va
  • McCree: D.Va, just tell me one thing: Where'd you learn to shoot like that?
  • D.Va: 16-bit Hero!

Doomfist
  • Doomfist: You know, McCree, the winning side would pay much better. Maybe, buy yourself some real clothes?
  • McCree: My clothes!? Have you seen some of the things Talon wears?
Genji
  • McCree: You might be fast, Genji, but you ain't faster than a bullet.
  • Genji: Why don't we find out?
  • McCree: Genji, how'd you ever get used to... You know... It was hard enough for me and it was just the one arm.
  • Genji: It was a long and difficult road, but now, I feel at ease in my own body.
  • Genji: (on Route 66) Why have you come back to this place McCree?
  • McCree: The only thing it ever is... Unfinished business, and unhappy history.
Hanzo
  • McCree: You know, that sake's not half bad but... I prefer a little bite to my liquor.
  • Hanzo: How predictable! Such unsophisticated taste.
Junkrat
  • McCree: I heard there's a nice reward for bringing you fellas in.
  • Junkrat: Maybe we could, erm, work something out, mate? *nervous laugh*
Moira
  • McCree: Always thought hiring you was a mistake.
  • Moira: The best mistake one could ever make.
  • Moira: Our courageous cowboy. The years haven't changed you much, have they, Jesse?
  • McCree: They certainly haven't changed my feelings about working with you.
Mei
  • Mei: Hey, McCree, do you know what time it is?
  • McCree: Well, I'd say it's about... now I see what you're doing there!
Mercy
  • Mercy: You know, smoking's bad for your health.
  • McCree: Well, I have faith you can get me patched back up, doc.
Orisa
  • Orisa: Jesse McCree; outlaw. Reward: 60 million dollars. The reward could make up for Efi's grant money.
  • McCree: Hey, come on now!

Pharah
  • Pharah: McCree, where did you learn to shoot like that? Was it Jack, Gabriel?
  • McCree: Always was a good shot, but I got a few pointers from the best. That'd be your mother.
  • McCree: Just remember Pharah, we ain't playing with toy guns anymore.
  • Pharah: Good, I'm much better with the real thing.
Reaper
  • McCree: You weren't given those guns to toss 'em around like trash.
  • Reaper: I don't take lessons from you.

  • Reaper: I didn't teach you all my tricks.
  • McCree: Lucky for me I still have a few tricks of my own.

  • Reaper: I taught you everything you know.
  • McCree: Not everythin'.

  • Reaper: You look ridiculous.
  • McCree: Looked in a mirror lately?

Roadhog
  • McCree: I heard there's a nice reward for bringing you fellas in.

Torbjörn
  • Torbjörn: McCree, what happened to your arm?

Overwatch Retribution
  • Reyes: We need to get out of here before the whole base is on top of us.
  • McCree: Almost like someone woke ‘em up...  Why’d you kill Antonio? He make you angry? That all it takes?
  • Reyes: He thought he was untouchable. He was mistaken.
  • McCree: Did you even consider what was going to happen before you pulled the trigger?
  • Reyes: i made a decision. I’ll deal with the consequences.
  • McCree: Oh, like gettin’ the four of us killed?
  • Reyes: [scoffs] That’s not going to happen.
  • McCree: I thought we were great, Commander. Snatch-n-grab, that’s it.
  • Reyes: Antonio was right. There was nothing we could do to him. Now, he’s not our problem anymore.
  • McCree: Something tells me that’s not the case.
  • Reyes: Jesse. Get that door open.
  • McCree: Maybe you could try shooting it. Seems to be your method of choice.
  • Reyes: There’s that famous McCree attitude.
  • McCree: I’ll try to adjust it for ya, boss. Wouldn’t wanna... cause any problems.
  • McCree: Startin’ the breach. Might take a while.
  • Moira: I see that everything is running as smoothly as ever.
  • McCree: Yeah, things go more smoothly when we act like professionals.
  • Moira: Breach initiated. Now we wait.
  • Genji: Patience is not my strong suit.
  • Moira: I suspect we’ll find something to occupy your time.
  • McCree: If you want something done right... Good thing we’re not in any hurry.
  • McCree: So, what do we do now, boss?
  • Reyes: We get outta this room, then head through the city to the extraction point. After that, we sit tight and hope someone comes to pick us up.
  • McCree: Quite a plan B. Not sure why I was even worried.
  • McCree: How’re you gonna explain this to the Strike Commander?
  • Reyes: You let me worry about what Jack needs to know.
  • McCree: You know you can’t shoot ‘im.
  • Reyes: No, but I could shoot you.
  • Genji: Who was Antonio?
  • Reyes: He’s an arms dealer. With some... other interests. More, and less, legitimate.
  • McCree: Not anymore.
  • Genji: Why are you so concerned about one death, McCree? It’s not the first time we’ve had to kill.
  • McCree: This was an execution.
  • Genji: Dead is dead. I believe you found an expedient solution, Commander.
  • Reyes: Hear that? The ninja agrees with my decision.
  • McCree: You be sure to call ‘im as a character witness, then.
  • Reyes: This mess was all worth it to see McCree trying to pass himself off as a waiter.
  • McCree: I thought I did just fine.
  • Reyes: You got fired from your cover job, Jesse.
  • McCree: Well, the lady was bein’ rude! She had it comin’!
  • Moira: You’re not the only one who likes to dress up.
  • McCree: Guess we’re just assassins now.
  • Genji: No matter what I do, I cannot escape my fate.
  • Reyes: We’re making progress on the door. How’s everyone doing?
  • McCree: [laughs sarcastically] Couldn’t be better.
  • Moira: Just grand, here.
  • McCree: Did Antonio have any associates?
  • Reyes: There’s the one who’ll probably take over for him. Viali. Don’t know too much about him. Then Doomfist in Numbani. And an omnic, who runs a casino in Monaco, uh, Maximillian, or something.
  • Reyes: Breaching now. get ready!
  • McCree: ‘Bout damn time!
  • Reyes: Everyone, through the breach. We’re gettin’ outta here.
  • McCree: We didn’t have to go to all this trouble if we were just gonna kill Antonio!
  • Reyes: It wasn’t how I drew it up. I still think we should’ve gone with the original plan of disguising ourselves as a band.
  • McCree: Do you even play an instrument, boss?
  • Reyes: Not well.
  • McCree: [scoffs] Details.
  • McCree: Looks like they brought in the heavy hitters.
  • Reyes: Yeah, they really rolled out the red carpet.
  • Moira: Well, that was certainly a decisive solution to the Antonio problem.
  • McCree: It’s not how we do things!
  • Moira: Well it seems we’ve had a change in the methodology.
  • McCree: A little too much change.
  • Reyes: Feels like Talon is mobilizing an entire army to stop us!
  • McCree: You just had to kick the hornet’s nest!
  • Moira: Talon seems very committed to ending our lives.
  • McCree: Better to kill them now than wait for another surprise attack.
  • Moira: [scoffs] Ironic.
  • McCree: What’s it like, Genji? Y’know... as a cyborg.
  • Genji: Pain... and agony. And what am I? Man? Or machine?
  • McCree: ...Then why did you agree to it?
  • Genji: I wanted to be able to walk again.
(About the Talon troops) We got ourselves an old fashioned shootout on our hands!
  • McCree: You seem awfully calm.
  • Moira: I take it all in my stride. And here I thought we were supposed to be the quiet ones. Next thing you know, we’ll have Lieutenant Wilhelm on our team.
  • Reyes: It’s not exactly Carnevale.
  • McCree: [scoffs] You serious?
  • Reyes: I was looking forward to the masquerade!
  • McCree: Fair enough.
  • McCree: [laughs] Sure are a lot of ‘em. Guess it’s a good thing we brought the ninja.
  • Genji:
  • McCree: ...Good talk.
  • Genji: It’s as if the whole city has been mobilized against us!
  • McCree: Just how you like it.
  • McCree: Even though we snuck that surveillance system into Antonio’s office, our intel’s a little spotty.
  • Genji: I can spy up on our enemies. Unseen... and undetected.
  • Genji: Take better care, Mccree. I’d hate for you to need a body like mine.
  • McCree: No offense, Genji, but I think I’m gonna keep everything just the way it is. But the way this mission’s going, it might be my future.
  • Reyes: It should be smooth sailing from here.
  • McCree: Aw, ya had to say it, didn’t ya?
  • Reyes: I withdraw my previous comment. We’re definitely not out of the woods yet.
  • McCree: I’ll note that for the record.
  • Blackwatch Pilot: I’ve got some company on the way in. I’m gonna try to shake ‘em but it might take a little while.
  • Reyes: No problem. We’re used to waiting around.
  • McCree: And gettin’ shot at.
  • Reyes: And getting shot at!
  • Moira: You two are adorable.
  • McCree: Oh, fancy place here.
  • Moira: Try to leave everything in one piece.
  • McCree: Aw, tell that to them.
  • Moira: We could all do with a little culture. The cowboy especially.
  • McCree: I’m plenty cultured! Have you ever been to the Cave of Mystery? [laughs] Didn’t think so.
  • Reyes: Enough art. Let’s get outta here.
  • McCree: Never had the eye for it, anyway.
  • Moira: Philistines.
  • Omnic Host: Name on your reservation?
  • McCree: Yeah, party of four. The name’s McCree.
  • Omnic Host: I’m terribly sorry but we are unable to accomodate walk-ins.
  • Reyes: We’re at the extraction point. Where are you?
  • Blackwatch Pilot: I’m just entering Venice airspace. It shouldn’t be much longer.
  • Reyes: If you’re not coming soon, you may as well turn around.
  • McCree: Woah, don’t listen to him! We’re gettin’ outta here.
  • McCree: Now this is as close to Carnevale as we’re gonna get.
  • Moira: You sound disappointed.
  • McCree: Well, I heard it was a good time!
  • McCree: Is this who we’ve become, Gabriel?
  • Reyes: Blackwatch has always had one purpose: to do the real work of keeping the world safe. I thought you had the stomach for it.
  • Moira: McCree... we need to talk about your Italian accent.
  • McCree: I watched a lotta old spaghetti westerns. I thought it was pretty good! Bone-a-sera, signora. Can I-ah get you-ah something to drink-ah?
  • Moira: Please never do that again.
(About Antonio's murder) This is your fault, Commander! We had a plan! We coulda walked Antonio right outta the city. I didn’t sign up for this!
  • Reyes: What’s keeping our ride? We can’t wait forever!
  • McCree: Something tells me the army of bad guys convergin’ on our position isn’t helpin’.
  • Moira: McCree’s instincts are, as ever, unimpeachable.
  • Blackwatch Pilot: Commander, I have visual on your position. I’m coming in for a landing, but it’s gonna be a little hot.
  • Reyes: Everyone, get ready to get on board.
  • McCree: ‘Bout damn time!
  • Moira: I eagerly anticipate the debriefing on this debacle.

Trigger Quote Audio
Pharah Interaction during Halloween
  • McCree: What's your Halloween costume gonna be this year, Pharah?
  • Pharah: Cold.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "I'm your Huckleberry" is a reference to Doc Holliday in the movie Tombstone. It means "I'm your man" or "I'm the man you're looking for." It's said in response to a threat or a challenge.
  • "Reach for the sky" is a Toy Story reference as the protagonist "Woody" says it when the string in his back is pulled, however the saying goes back to at least 1913, and is a familiar Western trope that saw heavy use throughout the mid-1900s. [1]
  • "I'm the quick, you're the dead" is a likely reference to the saying "There are two kinds of gunfighters; the quick and the dead" or one of several movie titles taken from the saying, though the origins of the phrase go much farther back and use the archaic meaning of "quick" i.e. "Alive".
  • In his interaction with Sombra, McCree tells her that his name is not Joel. Before his reveal, McCree came to be known as Joel to the community due to a conversation with a developer in 2014 in which he is referred to with that name.[2] At PAX East 2015, Jeff Kaplan lampshaded this when introducing McCree, stating that he "hates to be called Joel."[3]
    • The author of an in-universe news article discussing a noodle shop robbery that was (presumably) stopped by McCree is named Joel Morricone.[4] The author describes himself as a "guest blogger, coffee drinker, white hat wearer, [and] pundit for hire," and defends McCree's vigilante actions. Though the name may be a reference to the aforementioned, some fans have made comedic theories saying that McCree himself is writing the articles under a pseudonym.
  • "I'm not good. Not bad. But I sure as hell ain't ugly" is a reference to Clint Eastwood's movie The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
  • "I tried being reasonable, didn't take to it" is a reference to a quote said by Clint Eastwood: "I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it."
  • "Where'd you learn to shoot like that?" and D.Va's reply are references to the movie Back to the Future 3, in which a gun salesman asks the question and Marty replies "7-11," implying that he learned to shoot real handguns by playing an unspecified arcade game at 7-11 convenience stores.
  • The voice lines tied to McCree's Mystery Man and Vigilante skins reference The Shadow, a popular American serial drama about a masked vigilante.
  • The Summer Games voice line "Boom goes the dynamite" is a reference to an old viral video of a college sports cast where the presenter says "boom goes the dynamites" in his play-by-play commentary of a basketball game.
  • The respawn quote ''Lets start over at the beginning'' may be a reference to the western culture inspired first-person shooter Call of Juarez: Gunslinger where protagonist Silas Greaves is recalling and narrating all of the events of the game, and in the event of a player death would excuse himself and say ''Lets start over at the beginning'' or many other quotes to the same effect before respawning and continuing the story from the last checkpoint.
  • The English dub of the anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable had Mercer lend his voice to the character Jotaro Kujo. In Stardust Crusaders' final episode as Jotaro prepares to defeat his nemesis DIO, he utters "If this were the wild west, a hero would say 'It's high noon'". Fans have also noted striking similarity with Mercer's voicing role between McCree and Jotaro, leading to comparisons throughout the anime series' run in Adult Swim.
