- 1. Ethan?
- 2. That's your Uncle Ethan!
- 3. Welcome home, Ethan.
- 4. Lucy...
- 5. You ain't much bigger
than when I last saw you!
- 6. I'm Deborah.
- 7. There's Lucy over there.
- 8. Deborah? Debbie...
- 9. And you're Lucy?
- 10. Yeah, I'm Lucy. I'm mighty glad
to see you, Uncle Ethan.
- 11. She's got a fella. Kisses him, too!
- 12. Go on with Lucy and help with supper.
- 13. Deborah, you too!
- 14. Ben...
- 15. I was just gonna ask Uncle Ethan
what he's gonna do with his saber.
- 16. Well, I kind of figured to give it to you.
- 17. Thanks. Thanks, Uncle Ethan.
- 18. How was California?
California? How should I know?
- 19. Mose Harper told us...
- 20. Is that old goat still creekin' around?
- 21. Why doesn't somebody bury him?
- 22. No, I ain't been to California.
- 23. I don't intend to go either.
- 24. Supper will be ready
as soon as you wash up.
- 25. Let me take your coat.
- 26. Welcome home, Ethan.
- 27. Thanks, Aaron.
- 28. Marty, it's Uncle Ethan!
- 29. Debbie, sit down.
- 30. Good evening, Uncle Ethan.
- 31. Welcome home, sir.
- 32. It's Martin. Martin Pawley.
- 33. I'm sorry for bein' late, Aunt Martha.
- 34. Uncle Aaron.
- 35. A fella could mistake you for a half-breed.
- 36. Not quite, I'm an eighth Cherokee
and the rest Welsh and English.
- 37. Least that's what they tell me.
- 38. Go on, son.
- 39. It was Ethan who found you
squallin' under a sage clump...
- 40. after your folks had been massacred.
- 41. It just happened to be me.
No need to make more of it.
- 42. Thank you, Lucy.
- 43. Good night, Aunt Martha.
- 44. Good night, Martin.
- 45. Uncle Aaron.
Good night, Martin.
- 46. Good night, Uncle Ethan.
- 47. Good night.
- 48. Good night, Ma. 'Night, Pa.
- 49. Uncle Ethan, will you tell us
about the war?
- 50. The war ended
three years ago, boy.
- 51. It did? So why didn't you come home
- 52. Ben, go on with Martin. March!
- 53. Lucy's wearing the gold locket
you gave her when she was a little girl.
- 54. She doesn't wear it much
on account of it makes her neck green.
- 55. Deborah!
- 56. Well, it does!
- 57. But, I wouldn't care
if you gave me a gold locket...
- 58. if it made my neck green or not.
- 59. A gold locket!
Lucy, where are my saddlebags?
- 60. Look at my gold locket!
- 61. Oh, it is pretty.
- 62. Ethan, I think she's too young...
Oh, let her have it.
- 63. It doesn't amount to much.
- 64. To bed, young lady!
- 65. I passed the Todd place comin' in.
- 66. He gave up, quit,
went back to chopping cotton.
- 67. So did the Jamisons.
- 68. Without Martha...
- 69. She just wouldn't let a man quit.
- 70. Ethan, I saw it in you before the war.
- 71. You wanted to clear out.
- 72. You stayed beyond any real reason. Why?
- 73. Are you asking me
to clear out now?
- 74. You're my brother, Ethan.
- 75. You're welcome to stay here
as long as you have a mind to.
- 76. Ain't that right, Martha?
- 77. Of course, it is.
I expect to pay my way.
- 78. There are 60 double eagles in there.
- 79. And twice that much here. Yankee dollars.
- 80. That's fresh minted.
- 81. There ain't a mark on it.
- 82. So?
- 83. Open up! It's Sam Clayton.
- 84. Aaron!
- 85. Reverend, come on in!
- 86. Good morning, Sister Edwards.
- 87. What is it, Reverend?
- 88. Lars just said somebody
busted into his corral last night...
- 89. and ran off with his best cows.
- 90. Yeah, next time I'll raise pigs, by golly!
- 91. You never hear of anyone runnin' off pigs,
I bet you!
- 92. Bumblebees, by golly!
Coffee'll be just fine, Sister.
- 93. Good morning, Lucy.
- 94. Debbie, you been baptized yet?
- 95. No, I haven't.
Aaron, get Martin.
- 96. Martin!
- 97. I can sure use that coffee.
Pass the sugar, son.
- 98. Wait a minute, Sister.
I didn't get any coffee yet.
- 99. Just hold on a second, Sister.
I'm sure fond of them doughnuts.
- 100. Aaron! Martin! Come on up here.
- 101. Come on.
- 102. Raise your right hand. Martin?
- 103. Raise your right hand.
- 104. You're hereby voluntary privates
in Company A of the Texas Rangers...
- 105. and you will faithfully discharge...
Can I go with you?
- 106. Quiet! Where was I?
- 107. You will faithfully discharge your...
- 108. Mrs. Edwards?
- 109. Shut up!
- 110. You will faithfully discharge your duties,
- 111. without a recompense
or monetary consideration.
- 112. Amen. That means no pay.
Better get a shirt on, Aaron.
- 113. I ain't goin' volunteering
till I've had my coffee. Drink your own.
- 114. Just call me "Captain."
- 115. Captain.
The Reverend Samuel Johnson Clayton!
- 116. Mighty impressive.
- 117. Well... the "Prodigal Brother"!
- 118. When did you get back?
I ain't seen you since the surrender.
- 119. Come to think of it,
I didn't see you at the surrender.
- 120. I don't believe in surrenders.
- 121. I still got my saber, Reverend.
- 122. Didn't turn it into no plowshare neither.
- 123. The Indians did it, Mrs. Edwards.
- 124. Caddos or Kiowas.
Old Mose knows. Yes, sir.
- 125. - Oh, shut up, Mose.
- Thank you.
- 126. I'm countin' on you
to look after things while I'm gone.
- 127. - You're not goin'.
- He is going. I already swore him in.
- 128. Swear him out! I'll go.
I don't think I should...
- 129. Stay close, Aaron.
- 130. It might be, this is rustlers.
- 131. Might be this dodderin' ol' idiot
ain't so far wrong.
- 132. Could be Comanches.
- 133. Kind words, Ethan. Thank you kindly.
- 134. Children, go with Lucy.
- 135. Oh, Mom...
- 136. All right. I'll swear you in.
- 137. No need to. It wouldn't be legal anyway.
- 138. Why not? You wanted for a crime, Ethan?
- 139. Coffee, Ethan.
- 140. Thank you, Martha.
- 141. Are you asking me as a captain
or a preacher, Sam?
- 142. I'm asking you as a ranger
of the sovereign state of Texas.
- 143. You got a warrant?
- 144. You fit a lot of descriptions.
- 145. I figure a man's only good
for one oath at a time.
- 146. I took mine
to the Confederate States of America.
- 147. So did you, Sam.
- 148. Stay close, Aaron.
- 149. Thank you, Mrs. Edwards.
We have to be going.
- 150. Thank you, Mrs. Edwards.
- 151. Grateful to the hospitality
of your rocking chair, ma'am.
- 152. "Brad and Lucy, Lucy and Brad
- 153. "Brad and Lucy, Lucy and Brad"
- 154. Debbie and Ben Edwards,
I'm gonna tell Ma on you!
- 155. Uncle Ethan!
- 156. Somethin' mighty fishy
about this trail, Uncle Ethan.
- 157. Don't call me "Uncle." I ain't your uncle.
- 158. Yes, sir.
- 159. No need to call me "sir" either.
- 160. Nor "grandpa," nor "Methuselah."
I can whip you to a frazzle.
- 161. What do you want me to call you?
- 162. My name is Ethan. Now what's
so mighty fishy about this trail?
- 163. Well, first...
Look! Look! Brad!
- 164. Pa!
- 165. Reverend!
- 166. Look!
- 167. Caddos or Kiowas, huh?
- 168. Ain't but one tribe
uses a lance like that.
- 169. Hey, Pa, your prize bull.
Killed every one of them!
- 170. And not for food either.
Why'd they do a thing like that?
- 171. Stealing the cattle was
just to pull us out.
- 172. This is a murder raid.
- 173. Shapes up to burn down either your place,
or my brother's.
- 174. Mama! Laurie!
- 175. Oh, please, God! Please, no!
- 176. Brad! Brad! Son!
- 177. Jorgensen's place is the closest, Ethan.
- 178. If they're not there,
we'll come straight on to you.
- 179. You do that.
- 180. Well, are you coming,
or ain't you?
- 181. That farm's 40 miles from here,
boy. And these horses need rest and grain.
- 182. Ain't Caddos. Ain't Kiowas.
- 183. Break out the grain.
Yes, sir. Yes, sir.
- 184. Quiet, boy.
- 185. I'll see if I can shoot a couple
of sage hens before supper.
- 186. Yes, you do that, Aaron.
- 187. Ma, the days are getting shorter.
- 188. Lucy, we don't need a lamp yet.
- 189. Let's just enjoy the dusk.
- 190. It's all right, Ma,
I've been watching. Only...
- 191. - What, Ben?
- I wish Uncle Ethan was here.
- 192. Don't you, Ma?
- 193. Close that shutter, Ben, like a good boy.
- 194. Ma... I can't...
- 195. We're gonna play
the "sleep-out" game. Remember?
- 196. Where you hide out with Grandma?
- 197. Where she is buried?
- 198. And you creep along the ditch
very quietly, like...
- 199. Like a little mouse.
- 200. Hurry up!
The moon's fixin' to rise!
- 201. You won't make a sound or come back,
no matter what you hear!
- 202. - Promise?
- I promise.
- 203. Wait. Can't I have my doll?
There's no time. There's no time.
- 204. Here she is, baby.
- 205. Now, down low. Run!
- 206. Baby!
- 207. Chris, go back. Go back, Chris! Go back!
- 208. Uncle Ethan!
- 209. Wait a minute, Uncle Ethan.
- 210. Next time you'll mind your Uncle Ethan.
- 211. Thank you kindly...
- 212. Wait, Mose!
We can ride double, Mose!
- 213. Martha! Martha!
- 214. Aunt Martha!
- 215. Aunt Martha!
- 216. Let me in.
- 217. Don't go in there, boy.
I know she's in there!
- 218. Don't go in!
- 219. Don't let him look in there, Mose.
- 220. It won't do him any good.
- 221. Lucy! Debbie!
- 222. Put an "Amen" to it!
I'm not finished yet.
- 223. There's no more time for praying.
- 224. Brad! Martin!
- 225. Amen.
- 226. Those girls mean as much to me
as though they were my own.
- 227. Maybe you don't know that my Brad
has been keeping company with Lucy.
- 228. I'd be obliged
if you'd come to the point, ma'am.
- 229. It's just that I know
Martha would want you...
- 230. to take care of her boys,
as well as her girls.
- 231. If the girls are dead, don't let
the boys waste their lives in vengeance.
- 232. Promise me, Ethan!
- 233. Come on, if you're going with us!
- 234. Captain!
- 235. Captain Clayton!
- 236. Another one, huh?
Give me a hand, Charlie.
- 237. This one came a long way
before he died, Captain.
- 238. Well, Ethan, there's another one
you can score up for your brother.
- 239. I don't like it!
What don't you like?
- 240. Indians on a raid generally
hide their dead.
- 241. If they don't care anything
about us knowin'...
- 242. it only spells one thing
- 243. They ain't afraid of us following,
or of us catchin' up with them either.
- 244. You can back out
any time you want, Nesby.
- 245. Ethan, I didn't say that!
I didn't say such!
- 246. Easy, Nesby, easy.
- 247. Jorgensen!
- 248. Why don't you finish the job?
- 249. What good did that do you?
- 250. By what you preach, none.
But what that Comanche believes...
- 251. ain't got no eyes,
he can't enter the Spirit Land.
- 252. Has to wander forever between the winds.
- 253. You get it, Reverend.
Come on, Blankethead!
- 254. All right, boys. Let's mount up.
- 255. They're camped by the river,
about 20 miles from here.
- 256. We'll wait till dark, then circle out
so we can jump 'em before daylight.
- 257. You're sure you want to jump 'em, Ethan?
- 258. That's what we came for, ain't it?
- 259. I thought we were tryin'
to get them girls out... alive.
- 260. If we jump them Comanches,
they'll kill 'em. You know that.
- 261. What are we doing then, Reverend?
- 262. What are we supposed to do, Ethan?
- 263. Well, what I had in mind was
maybe runnin' off their pony herd.
- 264. A Comanche on foot
is more apt to be willin' to listen.
- 265. I think the Reverend's right.
- 266. You think the Reverend's...
- 267. What does a quarter-breed Cherokee
know about the old Comanche trick...
- 268. of sleepin' with his best pony
tied right by his side?
- 269. You've got about as much chance
of stampeding that herd as...
- 270. As you have of finding them girls alive
by raidin' into 'em!
- 271. I say we do it my way.
And that's an order!
- 272. Yes, sir.
- 273. But if you're wrong...
- 274. don't ever give me another!
- 275. Well, they were here.
- 276. Sure. They were here.
- 277. And now they're out there,
waiting to jump us.
- 278. Any more orders, "Captain"?
- 279. Yes. We'll keep on going.
- 280. Well?
- 281. You want to quit, Ethan?
- 282. That'll be the day!
- 283. - Horses!
- 284. Keep on going.
- 285. Keep moving! Keep moving!
- 286. Well, Reverend, it looks like
you got yourself surrounded.
- 287. Yeah, and I figure
I can get myself un-surrounded.
- 288. Mose, how far is the river?
- 289. I've been baptized, Reverend.
I've been baptized.
- 290. - Shut up, you fool.
- Thank you, kindly. Thank you.
- 291. You'd better get yourself set
for another one...
- 292. because when I holler,
I want you to move out in a hurry!
- 293. Let's go!
- 294. I'm gonna tell 'em, Ethan.
Let's tell 'em!
- 295. Take it easy, Nesby.
You'll be all right, Nesby.
- 296. Come on!
- 297. Here is my Bible. Hold it.
It'll make you feel good.
- 298. Thank you, Reverend.
Thank you very kindly.
- 299. Do you think they'll charge us?
- 300. - Are you asking me?
- I am.
- 301. Well, thank you.
- 302. Yep. The Death Song.
- 303. The War Chief. He's got to, to save face.
- 304. Yes, sir. He'll be right in your lap
in a minute, sonny.
- 305. For that which we're about to receive,
we thank Thee, O Lord.
- 306. You got him, Marty!
- 307. Hallelujah!
- 308. Dang! Blast it!
- 309. Watch it, it's loaded!
- 310. Leave them to carry off their hurt
- 311. Well, Reverend, that does it!
- 312. From now on, you stay out of this,
all of you! I don't want you with me.
- 313. I don't need you
for what I've gotta do!
- 314. Well, Edwards, I guess you're right.
- 315. We gotta get Nesby back.
- 316. This is a job for a whole company
- 317. or it's a job for one or two men.
- 318. Right now, we're too many
and not enough.
- 319. Me, I'm going on alone.
- 320. Any objections?
- 321. Good luck.
- 322. There's only one way you can stop me
from looking for Lucy, mister...
- 323. and that's kill me!
- 324. That's the way I feel, Uncle Ethan.
- 325. Ethan. Sir.
- 326. All right.
But I'm giving the orders, you hear?
- 327. I'm givin' the orders...
- 328. and you'll follow 'em
or we're splittin' up right here and now.
- 329. Sure, Ethan.
- 330. There's just one reason we're here, ain't it?
It's to find Debbie and Lucy.
- 331. If they're still alive.
- 332. Mount up.
- 333. They gotta stop sometime.
- 334. If they're human men at all,
they gotta stop!
- 335. No, a human rides a horse until it dies,
then he goes on afoot.
- 336. A Comanche comes along, gets that
horse up, rides him 20 more miles...
- 337. and then he eats him.
- 338. Easy on that!
- 339. Sorry.
- 340. We don't even know if Debbie
and Lucy are in this bunch.
- 341. Maybe they split up.
- 342. They're with 'em, all right.
If they're still alive.
- 343. You've said that enough!
- 344. Maybe Lucy's dead.
Maybe they're both dead.
- 345. But, if I hear that from you again,
I'll fight you, Mr. Edwards!
- 346. That'll be the day!
- 347. Spread out!
- 348. Found a main trail, but...
- 349. four of them cut out here
and rode on up through that pass.
- 350. How come they'd do that, Ethan?
- 351. I'll take a look. Keep after the others.
- 352. If you want us to fire...
- 353. No, nor build bonfires, nor beat drums.
- 354. I'll meet you on the far side.
- 355. Move!
- 356. Do you want some water, Ethan?
- 357. The trail leads over there.
- 358. Why'd they break off?
- 359. Was there water in that canyon?
- 360. Huh?
- 361. No water.
- 362. Are you all right, Ethan?
- 363. I'm all right.
- 364. What happened to your coat?
Did you lose it?
- 365. I must have.
- 366. But I'm not going back for it!
- 367. I found 'em! I found Lucy!
- 368. They're camped a half-mile over. I was
swinging back and I saw their smoke.
- 369. Bellied up a ridge,
and there they were, right below me.
- 370. Did you see Debbie?
- 371. No, but I saw Lucy all right.
She was wearing that blue dress...
- 372. What you saw wasn't Lucy.
- 373. Oh, but it was...
- 374. What you saw was a buck...
- 375. wearin' Lucy's dress.
- 376. I found Lucy back in the canyon.
- 377. I wrapped her in my coat.
- 378. Buried her with my own hands.
- 379. I thought it best
to keep it from you.
- 380. Did they...
- 381. Was she...?
- 382. What do you want me to do?
Draw you a picture? Spell it out?
- 383. Don't ever ask me! As long as you live,
don't ever ask me more!
- 384. I'm awful sorry, Brad.
- 385. Wait a minute!
- 386. Get back here, Brad! Get back here!
- 387. Why don't you say it?
- 388. We're beaten, and you know it.
- 389. No.
- 390. Our turnin' back don't mean nothin'.
- 391. Not in the long run.
- 392. If she's alive, she's safe.
For a while, they'll...
- 393. keep her and they'll raise her
as one of their own until...
- 394. she's of an age to...
- 395. Do you think maybe there's a chance
we still might find her?
- 396. An Indian will chase a thing
till he thinks he's chased it enough.
- 397. Then he quits.
- 398. Same way when he runs.
- 399. Seems like he never learns
there's such a thing as...
- 400. a critter who'll just keep coming on.
- 401. So we'll find 'em in the end.
I promise you.
- 402. We'll find 'em...
- 403. just as sure as the
turnin' of the earth!
- 404. Hi, Ethan.
- 405. Hi, Marty.
How are you, sir?
- 406. Marty!
- 407. You got my letter about your son, Brad?
- 408. Yeah.
- 409. Just about this time a year ago.
- 410. Oh, Ethan, this country...
- 411. Marty?
- 412. Martin Pawley!
- 413. Him? Probably forgotten all about you,
can't even call your name to mind!
- 414. Her name is Laurie.
- 415. But I fairly forgot just
how pretty she was.
- 416. Ethan.
- 417. What about Debbie?
- 418. Hey, what are you doin' anyway?
- 419. Don't go taking that stuff!
- 420. Well, it ain't worth the mending.
- 421. What are you gettin' so red in the face
about? I got brothers, ain't I?
- 422. Yeah, well, I ain't one of them.
- 423. Look here, Martin Pawley, I'm a woman.
- 424. We women wash and mend
your dirty clothes all your lives.
- 425. When you're little, we even wash you!
- 426. How you can ever make out to be bashful
in front of a woman, I'll never know.
- 427. You talk like a fella just
might as well run around naked.
- 428. It wouldn't bother me none.
- 429. Sure wouldn't try it in front of Pa,
though, if I was you!
- 430. "Oh, I got a gal prettier than you"
- 431. We kept trackin' 'em till the blizzards hit.
Then we lost their trail.
- 432. Don't need to tell you where we went
Fort Richardson, Wingate, Cobb...
- 433. Trouble is, we don't know which band
the war party belonged to.
- 434. Well, you did all a body could, Ethan.
- 435. I got your boy killed.
- 436. Don't go blamin' yourself for that.
- 437. It's this country that killed my boy.
Yes, by golly, I tell you Ethan...
- 438. Now, Lars, it just so happens
we'd be Texicans.
- 439. A Texican is nothing but a human man
way out on a limb.
- 440. This year and next...
- 441. Maybe for a hundred more.
But I don't think it will be forever.
- 442. Some day this
country's gonna be a fine good place to be.
- 443. Maybe it needs our bones in the ground
before that time can come.
- 444. Bedtime.
- 445. She was a schoolteacher.
- 446. Ma, Marty's drawers is a sight.
- 447. Would it be all right
if we give him some of Brad's things?
- 448. Of course. They're in Grandma's chest.
- 449. Ethan, you're going to sleep
in the bunkhouse.
- 450. The letter! In the chest!
It came for you, Ethan, last winter.
- 451. Charlie McCorry brought it.
- 452. I'm looking for that letter,
- 453. Here it is. By golly, I forgot.
- 454. Excuse me.
- 455. Mrs. Jorgensen.
- 456. Take a look at this.
- 457. Just a snip of calico.
- 458. Ever see it before?
Maybe on a dress Debbie wore?
- 459. Yes, it was an apron.
- 460. Have they found her yet?
- 461. Not yet.
- 462. Not yet.
- 463. You might at least have
left me my britches!
- 464. It's time for bed anyway.
Here, try these on.
- 465. I ain't gonna.
- 466. Well, likely they'll need some takin' in.
- 467. Marty, you're that gaunt.
- 468. Ma's having turkey for dinner tomorrow.
- 469. Laurie, come. Let the boys get to bed.
- 470. All right, Pa.
- 471. - Good night, Marty.
- Good night, Laurie.
- 472. - 'Night, Mr. Edwards.
- 'Night, Ms. Jorgensen.
- 473. Jorgensen's been runnin'
my cattle with his own.
- 474. Your cattle?
- 475. You mean Debbie's cattle.
- 476. He's agreed to take you on and split
the increase in my herd while I'm gone.
- 477. I'm pushin' on tomorrow.
- 478. Well, I sure ain't gonna stay here!
- 479. I started out lookin' for Debbie,
I intend to keep on.
- 480. Why?
- 481. Why? Well, because she is my...
- 482. She's your nothing!
She's no kin to you at all!
- 483. I always kind of thought she was.
- 484. The way her folks took me in
and raised me...
- 485. That don't make you no kin.
- 486. All right, maybe it don't.
But I intend to keep on lookin' anyway.
- 487. How?
- 488. You got any horses, or money to buy 'em?
- 489. You ain't even got money for cartridges.
- 490. Jorgensen's offerin' you
a good livin' here.
- 491. Martin, I want you to know...
- 492. I know what you want me to know!
- 493. I've got no kin, no money, no horses!
- 494. All I got here is a bunch
of dead-man's clothes to wear!
- 495. You told me that already,
so, shut your mouth!
- 496. Mornin', Laurie.
- 497. Mornin', Marty. Did you sleep well?
- 498. Well, no.
- 499. I kind of tossed and...
- 500. turned and dreamed.
- 501. I'll get your coffee.
- 502. You know, Laurie, I...
- 503. I was thinking maybe it's time
you and me started goin' steady, huh?
- 504. You and me have been goin' steady
since we was three years old.
- 505. - We have?
- About time you found out about it!
- 506. Gosh, Laurie, I've always been fond
of you, but...
- 507. with all this trouble
with Debbie and Ethan, I...
- 508. Ethan rode on an hour ago.
- 509. I don't know what you can do
about findin' Debbie that he can't.
- 510. He'll find her now, Martin. Honest he will!
- 511. That's what I'm afraid of, Laurie,
him finding her!
- 512. I've seen his eyes
at the very word "Comanche."
- 513. I've seen him take his knife and...
- 514. Never mind. He's a man
that can go crazy wild!
- 515. And I intend to be there to stop him,
in case he does.
- 516. I was hopin' I could hold you here,
but I guess I knew better.
- 517. I stole that for you.
- 518. "I... bought..."
- 519. Here, let me read it for you.
- 520. "I bought a small-sized dress
off of an Indian.
- 521. "If this here's a piece of your
child's dress, bring the reward.
- 522. "I know where they've gone.
- 523. Jerem Futterman!
- 524. He's got a small trading post
on the south fork of the Brazos.
- 525. Listen, I just gotta get me a horse!
Do you think your Pa...
- 526. Finish your breakfast!
- 527. I've got to find him!
- 528. - All right, go on and find him!
- Oh, Laurie, don't you understand?
- 529. But that's your own good horse!
- 530. You take him and welcome!
- 531. But don't you count on findin' me here
when you get back.
- 532. I've been hanging around
this Godforsaken place...
- 533. for two long years waiting for you.
- 534. I ain't cut out to be no old maid!
- 535. I'm sorry, Laurie,
but I just gotta catch up with Ethan.
- 536. Well, go ahead and catch up with him!
- 537. Futterman?
- 538. Let's talk.
- 539. You sent me a letter.
- 540. Yeah?
- 541. About a dress.
- 542. How'd you come by it?
- 543. - You said there was a $1,000 reward.
- That's what I said.
- 544. Got it with you?
- 545. You'll get the reward when I find her,
and if she's still alive.
- 546. A man's got a right to expect
some kind of payment.
- 547. I laid out for that dress
and sendin' you that writing.
- 548. Twenty Yankee dollars.
- 549. A man's time is worth something.
- 550. Talk.
- 551. A young buck fetched it in
late last summer.
- 552. Said it belonged to a captive child
of Chief Scar.
- 553. Scar?
- 554. We ain't never heard of him, have we?
- 555. Me neither. But this buck claimed
he was a big war chief...
- 556. with the Nawyecky Comanches.
- 557. Scar's band was headed north to winter
at Fort Wingate, eatin' agency beef.
- 558. That's what this buck said. Maybe he lied.
- 559. Maybe you lie.
- 560. In that case, my friend,
you won't find her...
- 561. and I won't get my $1,000 dollars.
- 562. You can spend the night. Cards, a jug...
- 563. No thanks.
- 564. Don't forget to come back with my $1,000!
- 565. It ain't yours yet!
- 566. Hey, Ethan.
- 567. Do you have a feeling
that maybe we're being followed?
- 568. That's the Indian in you.
Go to sleep.
- 569. Them horses there...
they're sure actin' mighty nervous.
- 570. They smell a change
in the weather.
- 571. Don't put any more wood
on the fire. I'm burning up.
- 572. We might get a frost
- 573. I'm getting to be like old Mose Harper.
- 574. My bones are cold tonight.
- 575. You know...
- 576. it's funny, but last winter when
we passed through Fort Wingate...
- 577. I didn't have any recollection of
a mention of Nawyecky Comanches.
- 578. Not so funny when you recollect
what "Nawyecky" means.
- 579. What's that?
Sort of like "roundabout."
- 580. A man says he's goin' one place,
means to go to the other.
- 581. Come on, Ethan. Don't put any more wood
on the fire! I'm burning up.
- 582. Comfortable?
- 583. Ethan, are you all right?
- 584. I'm just saying good night to you.
Well, good night!
- 585. Good night!
- 586. Good night!
- 587. Futterman!
- 588. Thanks, you did fine.
- 589. Why, that's Mr. Futterman!
- 590. Ethan, what are you doin' anyway?
- 591. I'm getting my money back, you idiot!
What do you suppose!
- 592. We did all right.
- 593. We? Why you just staked me out there,
like a piece of bait!
- 594. You built up the fire. You fixed it
so I could get my brains blown out!
- 595. What if you had missed?
- 596. It never occurred to me.
- 597. Let's get out of here.
- 598. Howdy, Mr. Jorgensen.
- 599. - Charlie!
- Got me a letter here.
- 600. By golly, a letter?
- 601. It's for Ms. Laurie.
- 602. Two letters in one year! By golly!
- 603. Mama! Mama! It's Charlie McCorry.
- 604. He's come with a letter.
He's come a courtin' too, by golly!
- 605. Good morning, Charlie.
- 606. Laurie, here's a letter for you.
Charlie brought it.
- 607. I figured it might be the news
you've been waiting for, so I...
- 608. - Thank you, Charlie.
- You're welcome.
- 609. Say, I brought you
some boiled sweets.
- 610. Why, thank you, Charlie!
- 611. Let's sit down
while Laurie reads the letter.
- 612. I reckon,
I really ought to be going...
- 613. No. You'll stay, Charlie.
- 614. After all, Charlie brought the letter.
He's got a right to listen too.
- 615. MRS.
Come on, read the letter.
- 616. But, Ma, it's my letter!
- 617. Why, sure, but...
Go ahead. Read it.
- 618. Please.
- 619. "Dear Ms. Laury..."
- 620. He spelled it with a "y" instead of an
"ie." You'd think he'd know better.
- 621. Oh, spelling... please!
What's the difference? Read the letter!
- 622. "Dear Ms. I take pencil in hand
to let you know...
- 623. "... Ethan and me are still trying
to catch up with them Comanches...
- 624. "... the late Mr. Futterman told us about."
- 625. The "late" Mr. Futterman?
- 626. That means Mr. Futterman is dead,
- 627. Oh, the poor man! Go ahead, Laurie.
- 628. "We cut north through Indian territory..."
- 629. "... and did not have no trouble..."
- 630. "... finding Kiowas and Wichitas..."
- 631. "... and even some Comanches..."
- 632. "... camped by one of the agencies."
- 633. "But none of them was Nawyeckies..."
- 634. "... nor claimed to know
a war chief called Scar."
- 635. Scar?
- 636. "He's the one the late Mr. Futterman said
- 637. "At one of the agencies..."
- 638. "... we outfitted with all kinds of
- 639. "... figuring that'd make it easier
for us to come and go...
- 640. "You'd laugh if I told you..."
- 641. "... what was our biggest seller."
- 642. Let's go. I think I stumbled
- 643. Scar... you found him?
- 644. When are you gonna learn
to keep your big mouth shut?
- 645. Get your horse, and let's get out of here!
- 646. - I just bought me a good blanket.
- Forget it. Move!
- 647. I heard that a band of hostile Comanches...
- 648. came through less than a week ago.
- 649. I asked if a white girl was with them.
- 650. They got sullen and suspicious.
- 651. - You think it might have been...
- I don't know!
- 652. What's she following us for?
- 653. Hey, you! You go on back now!
- 654. Go on!
- 655. Look, I changed my mind.
You can keep your blanket.
- 656. Look, you don't understand.
I don't want it!
- 657. You don't understand, you chunkhead!
- 658. You didn't buy any blanket,
you bought her!
- 659. You got yourself a wife, sonny!
- 660. Oh, no! Ethan, tell her to go back!
- 661. What? And have her whole family
after our scalps...
- 662. for flauntin' one of their womenfolk?
- 663. Come on, Mrs. Pawley.
- 664. Come on, Mrs. Pawley.
- 665. Join our merry group.
- 666. Mrs. Pawley?
- 667. "There is one other thing
I got to tell you..."
- 668. "... before you hear it from Ethan."
- 669. "How I got myself..."
- 670. "... a wife..."
- 671. He did?
- 672. Good!
- 673. A young man should get married
early in life. Right, Mama?
- 674. Go ahead and read the letter, Laurie.
- 675. "A little Comanche squaw..."
- 676. Squaw!
- 677. Laurie, you come back
and read the letter, please!
- 678. Come back and read it, please!
- 679. Mama, here, you read the letter.
- 680. My wife was a schoolteacher.
She reads good.
- 681. I'll read it.
- 682. So he married a Comanche squaw.
- 683. "She wasn't near..."
- 684. "... as old as you..."
- 685. How old does he think I am?
- 686. Hey, look! Coffee. Me. Coffee.
- 687. Could I have a little, Mrs. Pawley?
- 688. Looks like Mrs. Pawley's
gonna make you a fine, dutiful wife.
- 689. Oh, cut it out, will you?
- 690. Oh, look...
- 691. I sure wish I could make you understand.
- 692. Look?
- 693. She says her name is
Wild Goose Flying in The Night Sky.
- 694. But she'll answer to "Look,"
if that pleases you.
- 695. That's grounds for divorce in Texas!
- 696. You're really rough!
- 697. Well, I don't think it's a dead-bird funny!
- 698. Look, if you really wanna do some good,
why don't you ask her where Scar is?
- 699. She heard you.
- 700. Scar.
- 701. You ask her!
- 702. Do you know where he went?
Did he have a girl with him? A white girl?
- 703. No, not a woman. It's...
- 704. Sister!
- 705. Martin!
- 706. Look's gone!
- 707. Pulled out in the night.
- 708. She ain't goin' back to her family.
That's for certain.
- 709. She took off the way
that arrow is pointing.
- 710. Think maybe we ought to follow her?
- 711. How should I know? She's your wife.
- 712. "Maybe she left other signs
for us to follow but...
- 713. "... we'll never know..."
- 714. "... because it snowed
that day and all the next week."
- 715. We were headin' north
through buff alo country...
- 716. when somethin' happened that
I ain't got straight in my own mind yet.
- 717. On this day we sighted a small herd.
- 718. We needed meat, so we circled around...
- 719. and came up on them on foot.
- 720. That don't make no sense!
- 721. Hunger! Empty bellies! That's the sense!
- 722. Ethan, stop it!
- 723. At least they won't feed
any Comanches this winter!
- 724. Listen! Listen!
- 725. It was the Nawyecky
Comanches, all right.
- 726. The ones we'd been looking for
all this time.
- 727. Marty!
- 728. It's Look.
- 729. Look?
- 730. What did them soldiers have
to go and kill her for?
- 731. She never done nobody any harm.
- 732. We've got to catch up with them,
maybe they've got Debbie with them!
- 733. Maybe they've got that
chief they call Scar.
- 734. So, we figured Debbie'd been
in the village.
- 735. What Look was doin' there...
whether she'd come to warn 'em...
- 736. or maybe to find Debbie for me...
- 737. there's no way of knowing.
- 738. Come on, move along! Come on!
- 739. Come on, hurry up.
- 740. Yes?
- 741. We're looking for a girl.
A white girl. A captive.
- 742. Should be about 14 now.
- 743. Fourteen? We have two about that age.
- 744. - All the white women are in the chapel.
- What's this girl to you?
- 745. She's my...
She's my niece.
- 746. One moment.
- 747. White women?
- 748. Will you stand up?
- 749. Stand up, please.
- 750. Debbie?
- 751. It's hard to believe they're white.
- 752. They ain't white!
- 753. Not any more. They are Comanches!
- 754. Where are your casualties?
- 755. Maybe you can help us
identify them. All white. All captives.
- 756. There's the white girl there.
- 757. No.
- 758. "So we're setting out for New Mexico
territory in the morning.
- 759. "I am sorry I won't be back
for Christmas again this year.
- 760. "I set pencil aside and hope
you are enjoying good health.
- 761. "And your folks the same."
- 762. "I remain, respectfully..."
- 763. "... yours truly, Martin Pawley."
- 764. They'll never find that girl.
- 765. Never!
- 766. "Yours truly."
- 767. He had to sign his whole name,
- 768. He couldn't write just "Marty"!
- 769. - I don't care if he never comes back!
- Laurie! Laurie!
- 770. Charlie, you stay for supper.
I won't take "no" for an answer.
- 771. The thought of saying "no"
never entered my head, Mrs. Jorgensen.
- 772. Ain't no place I'd rather be
than right here...
- 773. right now.
- 774. "Gone again, skip to my Lou"
- 775. "Gone again, skip to my Lou"
- 776. "Gone again, skip to my Lou"
- 777. "Skip to my Lou, my darling"
- 778. - Recognize it?
- 779. Couldn't be two like that
in the whole world!
- 780. Mose Harper!
- 781. Mose, you look shabbier than ever!
- 782. How about a drink?
- 783. Ain't been too good.
No, sir. Not too good.
- 784. - Getting old.
- You were born old.
- 785. Been helpin' you, Ethan.
Been lookin' all the time.
- 786. The reward still stands.
- 787. Don't want no money, Ethan.
No money, Marty.
- 788. Just a roof over old Mose's head.
- 789. And a rocking chair by the fire.
- 790. My own rocking chair by the fire, Marty.
- 791. You help us find the girl
and you've got your rocking chair.
- 792. Swear it, Ethan? Given word?
- 793. I told you, didn't I?
- 794. Ethan, I found a man who's seen her.
- 795. He knows where little Debbie is!
- 796. Where is he? Who is this man?
- 797. - Promise?
- Who is the man?
- 798. I am this man, Seor.
- 799. Emilio G. Fernandez Figueroa.
- 800. At your service. For a price.
Always for a price.
- 801. Carmen!
- 802. Sir, I'd like to...
- 803. Wait till you grow up.
- 804. Let's talk a little business.
- 805. Why not?
- 806. Let's go.
- 807. But I'm hungry!
- 808. While you're fillin' your belly...
- 809. I'm goin' out to meet a Comanche
- 810. Never heard of him.
- 811. "Cicatriz" is Mexican for "scar."
- 812. Medicine country, huh?
- 813. Bad medicine, I think.
- 814. - This is the great Cicatriz, War Chief.
- Scar, huh?
- 815. Plain to see how you got your name.
- 816. You, Big Shoulders.
- 817. The young one, He Who Follows.
- 818. You speak pretty good American
for a Comanche.
- 819. Did someone teach you?
- 820. That's right. We've come to trade.
Only not out here.
- 821. I don't stand talkin' in the wind.
- 822. You speak good Comanche.
Did someone teach you?
- 823. You, stay out here.
- 824. His sons are dead. So his wives sit
on the honor side of his lodge.
- 825. Are all those his wives?
- 826. Two sons killed by white men.
- 827. For each son, I take many...
- 828. Scalps.
- 829. We've seen scalps before.
- 830. Seen this before?
- 831. I came to trade,
not to admire his collection.
- 832. Tell him we'll pitch camp on the other
side of the creek and talk tomorrow.
- 833. Tomorrow?
- 834. It is not that I am afraid.
- 835. Don't apologize.
You got well paid.
- 836. But he knows who you are,
and why you're here. This, I did not know.
- 837. Take it. I do not want blood money.
- 838. Vaya con dios.
- 839. Do you think
old Scar means to kill us?
- 840. He's got to.
- 841. We've been asking for it
for five years.
- 842. Why didn't he make
his move back there?
- 843. Hospitality, I guess.
- 844. Why?
Do you want to pull out too?
- 845. Big Shoulders!
- 846. Debbie?
- 847. Debbie...
- 848. Debbie, don't you remember?
I'm Martin, your brother.
- 849. Remember?
- 850. Debbie, remember back...
- 851. Do you remember how I used
to let you ride my horse?
- 852. And tell you stories?
- 853. Don't you remember me, Debbie?
- 854. I remember.
- 855. For always.
- 856. First I prayed to you,
to come and get me...
- 857. to take me home. You didn't come.
- 858. I've come now, Debbie.
- 859. These are my people.
- 860. Go! Go, Martin! Please!
- 861. Stand aside, Martin!
- 862. No, you don't, Ethan!
- 863. Ethan! No, you don't!
- 864. Stand aside!
- 865. Debbie!
- 866. Looks as though I'm gonna have
to open that shoulder again.
- 867. To get the poison out.
- 868. Sure beats me, Ethan...
how you could've stayed alive this long.
- 869. Read this.
- 870. "I..."
- 871. "... Ethan Edwards..."
- 872. "... being of a sound mind..."
- 873. "... and..."
- 874. "... without any blood kin..."
- 875. "... do hereby..."
- 876. Bequeath. It means "leave."
- 877. "... bequeath..."
- 878. "... all my property..."
- 879. "... of any kind..."
- 880. "... to Martin Pawley."
- 881. What do you mean,
you don't have any "blood kin"?
- 882. Debbie is your blood kin!
- 883. Not no more, she ain't!
- 884. Well, you can keep your will!
- 885. I don't want any of your property!
- 886. Besides, I ain't forgettin' you was gettin'
all set to shoot her yourself.
- 887. What kind of man
are you anyway?
- 888. - She's been livin' with a buck!
- Shut your dirty mouth!
- 889. I hope you die!
- 890. That'll be the day!
- 891. One, two, three, four!
- 892. Good evening, everybody!
- 893. Here he is! All curried,
combed and washed behind the ears.
- 894. Charlie, you look right handsome!
I'd hardly know you.
- 895. Yes, ma'am.
I can't hardly recognize myself.
- 896. Get it on, Luther!
- 897. Why don't you have a drink?
- 898. Oh, no, Nesby.
Not till I'm finished my clergyin'.
- 899. - Bar's closed. Right, Sister Jorgensen?
- 900. All right, let's go! Let's get it goin'!
- 901. Go ahead.
- 902. Bible.
- 903. - Get them spurs off!
- Yes, sir.
- 904. All right, line up inside, boys.
- 905. Music!
- 906. "Yes, we will gather at the river"
- 907. "The beautiful, the beautiful river"
- 908. "Gather with the saints at the river"
- 909. "That flows by the throne of God"
- 910. Hey, you don't suppose
they're throwin' a party for us, do you?
- 911. That'll be the day!
- 912. I'm all right.
- 913. Ethan, Martin! You can't come in!
The rangers are in there.
- 914. What's that got to do with us?
- 915. You're both posted for murder.
The both of you!
- 916. That trader, the late Futterman...
- 917. The Reverend and the rangers
are in there now...
- 918. Well, what's goin' on anyway?
- 919. Looks like you two will have
a lot to talk about.
- 920. Come on, Lars.
Ethan... hide in the barn!
- 921. What for?
- 922. Martin...
- 923. Please! Look, everybody!
- 924. Look, Mama!
- 925. Look who's here!
- 926. Evenin'.
- 927. Is the bar open?
- 928. Any news of our little girl?
- 929. She's not a little girl anymore.
- 930. You've seen her? She's alive?
- 931. I've seen her and she's alive.
- 932. Good evening, Reverend.
Or should I call you "Captain"?
- 933. I came here for a wedding, Ethan.
- 934. Till that's over, "Reverend" will do.
Afterwards we'll talk.
- 935. - Is Marty with you?
- 936. Charlie, please!
- 937. It's good to see you back, Ethan.
We'll join you.
- 938. But I wrote you one letter.
- 939. One letter in five years!
- 940. I read it till the paper dried up
and the writin' faded out.
- 941. It wasn't much of a letter, was it?
- 942. No, it wasn't.
- 943. Might've at least said you loved me.
- 944. You might've asked me to wait for you.
At least that'd have been somethin'.
- 945. But I always loved you!
- 946. I thought you knew that
without me havin' to say it.
- 947. It isn't fair, Martin Pawley!
- 948. It isn't fair and you know it!
- 949. - I wish you wouldn't cry, Laurie.
- Who's cryin'?
- 950. I reckon the best thing
for me to do is to go away.
- 951. You do, Martin Pawley, and I'll just die!
- 952. I'll thank you to unhand my fiance.
- 953. You don't mean
you're gonna be marryin' him?
- 954. Charlie MacCorry?
- 955. She sure is!
- 956. And don't think your comin' back
is gonna change it either!
- 957. Well, now, as to that,
I just don't know, Charlie.
- 958. We hadn't gotten around
to talkin' about marriage.
- 959. What right have you to talk marriage
to any decent woman?
- 960. If you're referrin' to
that crazy murder charge...
- 961. And other things.
- 962. You think you're gettin' away with
bein' smart about the Indian wife you took.
- 963. I'll bet she ain't the
first squaw you ever...
- 964. Why, you are a no good...
- 965. Oh, Marty, you've done it again!
- 966. Get out of my way!
- 967. Marty! Charlie! I ain't gonna have
no fightin' in my house.
- 968. Well, then we're just gonna fight outside,
- 969. I ain't totin' no firearms.
- 970. Well, that sure ain't gonna be no problem.
- 971. - After you, Marty.
- After you, Charlie.
- 972. Ma! Reverend! Pa!
- 973. Look, here.
- 974. Thank you.
- 975. Spit over that piece of firewood.
- 976. Quit that, Marty! That ain't fair!
- 977. Martin! Martin! Charlie!
- 978. Marty, now you stop that!
- 979. Marty! Charlie!
- 980. Sergeant MacCorry!
- 981. Is this here altercation
in the line of duty?
- 982. No, sir. It's more
in the nature of a private fight.
- 983. All right, then, go ahead.
But fight fair. No biting or gouging!
- 984. And no kicking either!
- 985. Get them up! Make them fight fair!
- 986. Now you fight fair, Martin!
- 987. Wait a minute!
- 988. Somebody's fiddle.
- 989. Hey, Seth!
- 990. No choking! No gouging!
- 991. Mr. Edwards, make 'em stop!
- 992. Why? You started it.
- 993. Marty, watch his feet!
- 994. Oh, Ethan! No!
- 995. Don't forget, you're a lady.
- 996. Come on now, fight fair!
- 997. Come on, Charlie! That's it, Charlie!
- 998. Come on, Charlie. Get up!
- 999. Are you all right?
- 1000. I reckon so.
- 1001. Now, come on. I want you boys
to shake hands and make friends.
- 1002. Sorry I bit your ear, Marty.
- 1003. It don't hurt none, Charlie.
- 1004. Now you boys get cleaned up
and we'll proceed with the wedding.
- 1005. Where's my Bible?
- 1006. There ain't gonna be no wedding.
- 1007. Not till we get a few things
cleared up around here.
- 1008. It was a nice wedding party,
considering nobody got married.
- 1009. Ethan, I gotta ask you and Martin
to take a ride with me...
- 1010. down to the state capital.
- 1011. Is this an invite
to a necktie party, Reverend?
- 1012. No, I wouldn't say that.
- 1013. Likely you had your reasons
for killin' Futterman.
- 1014. Probably needed killin'.
- 1015. I'm talking to you now as a ranger,
not as a preacher.
- 1016. The fact that all three of 'em
was shot in the back was...
- 1017. the only thing
that raised some questions.
- 1018. That, and...
- 1019. a missin' gold piece that was
known to have been on him...
- 1020. just prior to his demise.
- 1021. Ethan, I'll have to ask you for your gun.
- 1022. Well, if it's all the same to you,
- 1023. I ain't goin' to Austin!
- 1024. You're goin'
if the captain says so.
- 1025. Stop it! Stop it!
- 1026. I'll put both of you boys
in the smokehouse to cool off.
- 1027. Good evening, ma'am. Captain Clayton?
- 1028. Excuse me, ma'am.
- 1029. - Captain Clayton, sir?
- 1030. I'm Captain Clayton.
- 1031. - You're Captain Clayton?
- Yes, I'm Captain Clayton.
- 1032. Col. Greenhill's compliments, sir.
The colonel wants to know...
- 1033. - Is your head cold?
- No, sir.
- 1034. I'm sorry, sir.
- 1035. - All right, start at the beginning.
- Col. Greenhill's compliments, sir.
- 1036. Hold on, son. Who is this Col. Greenhill
you're talking about?
- 1037. Why, Col. Greenhill is Col. Greenhill, sir.
- 1038. - Commanding officer of the 15th...
- And who are you?
- 1039. I'm Lt. Greenhill, sir.
- 1040. What is it your pa wants to know?
- 1041. Well, go ahead.
- 1042. My pa wants to know...
Col. Greenhill wants to know...
- 1043. how soon you can put a company...
- 1044. Turn around, sonny.
- 1045. Yeah, he's a Yankee cavalryman.
- 1046. Col. Greenhill wants to know how soon
you could... I resent that, sir!
- 1047. Just funnin', son, just funnin'.
- 1048. How soon you could put a company
of your men in the field...
- 1049. fully armed for joint-punitive action
against the Comanches?
- 1050. - Joint what?
- Joint-punitive action.
- 1051. We received information about a band
of Comanches under a chief named Scar.
- 1052. What information?
- 1053. That maybe he's not far from here,
holed up somewhere.
- 1054. What makes you think
he's not far from here?
- 1055. One of our patrollers picked up a man...
- 1056. claims he was a prisoner with Scar
till two days ago.
- 1057. Talks kind of crazy,
but we brought him along.
- 1058. Says he lives here.
Keeps mentioning a rocking chair.
- 1059. Mose. Mose!
- 1060. Take his arms.
- 1061. It's Mose!
- 1062. Good evening, ma'am.
I came for my rocking chair.
- 1063. Bring him to the fire.
- 1064. Get him up!
- 1065. Here, get him a chair.
- 1066. Charlie, bring him a drink!
- 1067. Watch his head!
- 1068. Take a drink, Mose.
Drink that down, Mose.
- 1069. Mose. Scar... where is he?
- 1070. My rocking chair.
You promised me my rocking chair.
- 1071. Where is Scar?
- 1072. Ask him about Debbie.
Is Debbie all right, Mose?
- 1073. Made out I was crazy.
- 1074. You don't think I'm crazy,
do you, ma'am?
- 1075. No, Mose, you're just sick and hurt.
- 1076. Thank you, ma'am.
- 1077. Mose, try and remember.
You were at Scar's camp.
- 1078. I ate dirt and chewed grass. I fooled them.
- 1079. Where is Scar holed up?
- 1080. I won't tell you.
- 1081. I'll tell Marty.
- 1082. Seven Fingers, Marty. Seven fingers.
- 1083. That's enough, Ethan.
Let's get him to bed.
- 1084. Seven Fingers?
Beg to report, sir...
- 1085. that's what he told us,
but there's no such place on the maps.
- 1086. Isn't it the Caddo name for where
all them canyons join under the Malapai?
- 1087. Seven Fingers of Brazos!
- 1088. Come on, Mama.
Let's get him to his room.
- 1089. My rocking chair?
- 1090. We'll bring it.
- 1091. You go tell your pa that
a company of rangers...
- 1092. all 14 of 'em, fully
armed and equipped...
- 1093. will be in the field by daylight.
- 1094. We'll be headin' for the south end
of the Malapai.
- 1095. If he can catch up with us,
all well and good!
- 1096. We can't take the field tomorrow.
For your own protection.
- 1097. Sonny. Out yonder is a pack
- 1098. and a white-girl captive!
- 1099. If you want to protect us,
just keep out of our way.
- 1100. Now you skedaddle back to your pa!
- 1101. Ethan...
- 1102. You and Martin are hereby appointed
civilian scouts. Without pay.
- 1103. Take the boys and get back
to headquarters and pick up my company.
- 1104. Martin?
- 1105. You're not going! Not this time.
- 1106. Are you crazy?
- 1107. It's too late. She is a woman grown now.
- 1108. I gotta go, Laurie. I gotta fetch her home.
- 1109. Fetch what?
- 1110. The leavings of Comanche bucks sold time
and again to the highest bidder with...
- 1111. Laurie, shut your mouth!
- 1112. Do you know what Ethan
will do if he has a chance?
- 1113. He'll put a bullet in her brain!
- 1114. I tell you, Martha would want him to!
- 1115. Only if I'm dead!
- 1116. We can get within 200 yards of them.
- 1117. There's a hub back off to the left.
- 1118. How many, you figure?
- 1119. About a dozen each.
- 1120. Enough to go around.
- 1121. Well, we found 'em!
- 1122. Now, men...
- 1123. the state of Texas is paying you
12 Yankee dollars a month.
- 1124. Now is your chance to earn it!
- 1125. Tighten up your cinches.
We'll go chargin' in about sunup.
- 1126. Now make sure that...
Just a minute, Reverend!
- 1127. If we go charging in, they'll kill her!
And you know it.
- 1128. That's what I'm countin' on.
I know you are.
- 1129. Well, it ain't gonna be that way!
She's alive and she's gonna stay alive!
- 1130. Living with Comanches ain't bein' alive.
- 1131. It's better she's alive and livin' with
Comanches than her brains bashed out!
- 1132. Now, son, I know
this is a bitter thing to say...
- 1133. but there's more at stake here
than your sister.
- 1134. There sure is.
I'm gonna tell you somethin'.
- 1135. I didn't mean to speak of it,
but I'm gonna tell you now.
- 1136. You remember that scalp strung
on Scar's lance? Long and wavy?
- 1137. Yeah, I saw it. And don't try to tell me
it was Aunt Martha's or Lucy's!
- 1138. It was your mother's.
- 1139. That don't change it.
That don't change nothing!
- 1140. Give me a chance to sneak in and
get her out, before you come chargin' in.
- 1141. What if you get caught?
- 1142. - That don't tell them nothin', does it?
- I said no!
- 1143. You go right ahead, son. But at the first
sign of an alarm, we're comin' in.
- 1144. We ain't gonna have no time to pick
and choose our targets when we do!
- 1145. It's your funeral.
- 1146. Captain Clayton!
- 1147. Captain Clayton!
- 1148. What the Sam Hill...?
- 1149. Captain Clayton, sir.
- 1150. Go ahead! Why don't you have
your bugler blow the charge too?
- 1151. Oh, never mind.
Does your pa know you're out here?
- 1152. Yes, sir. The troops are 10 miles back.
- 1153. The colonel sent me to find you.
- 1154. You found me. Good work and goodbye.
- 1155. Is there anything I can do, sir?
- 1156. God forbid.
- 1157. You just go back and tell your pa
where we are and where he is.
- 1158. But he knows that, sir. Can't I stay?
- 1159. Please?
- 1160. Oh, all right. But you watch me, boy.
- 1161. I'm the hard case you're up against
out here, not them childish savages.
- 1162. If you don't hear my first holler...
- 1163. you better read my mind...
- 1164. 'cause I don't aim to raise no
two hollers on any subject at hand!
- 1165. - Yes, sir.
- 1166. watch that knife!
- 1167. Sorry, sir.
- 1168. Halt!
- 1169. Mount!
- 1170. Mount! Mount!
- 1171. Debbie.
- 1172. Debbie.
- 1173. Don't say anything!
- 1174. It's your brother Marty!
- 1175. I'm gonna take you away.
I'm gonna get you out of here, Debbie.
- 1176. Yes, Marty!
- 1177. Brethren, let us go amongst them!
- 1178. Charlie, Nesby, run off that pony herd...
- 1179. Boy, you watch out for that knife!
- 1180. Let's go!
- 1181. No, Ethan!
- 1182. Debbie!
- 1183. No, Ethan!
- 1184. Let's go home, Debbie.
- 1185. Does that hurt, Reverend?
- 1186. Ow!
- 1187. Good work, Captain! Good work, Son.
- 1188. You wounded?
- 1189. - A bullet? An arrow?
