I have a question about this dialogue, let's see if I can get it right.

"You said $5,000?"

"It's on its way...The reward for this man is $5,000, that right?"

"Judas was content with $4,970 less"

"There were no dollars in them days"

then I think he says:
"For sons of bitchs, yeah."

What's he saying? My Biblical history isn't that great (a murdering theif knows more about the gospel than me :o)
I assume Judas' bounty was $30. But the sons of bitchs I dont get.

Judas's bounty was 30 pieces of silver.

He says "But Sons of Bitches, Yea" meaning there were no dollars in those days but "son's of bitches, yea". Lots of SOB's, lol.

One revolution is more than enough for me.

Right on.  He was calling Harmonica an SOB for turning him in , just as Judas turned in Christ for the $30.
