boy, it's all over. you can't just stay here forever. come on. flint, you better go get him. bring him back and put him in one of the wagons. we can't just leave him out here. can't leave grave markers in this indian territory. they wouldn't touch the sign of god. these people don't know our god. they have strange ways, father. believe me, i know. but why pick my wagon? that's what i'd like to know.
the major asked me to find a place for the boy to stay. you're the most likely-- what's going on here? this is the let crowded wagon, just the two of them on it, but mr. thornton-- it's my wagon! i've got a right to say who rides in it! hold on, mr. thornton. maybe you better read the articles you signed. flint here is asking you to do the fair thing. hawks: major adams, see you a minute? just a second. if i was you, i'd do what he says. what do you say, thornton? fair? look at him. he isn't even our kind. what do you want me to do, ignore it? pretend that it isn't so? oh, jay, stop it! a boy who's just suffered grief like him... i apologize for my husband. i'm embarrassed for what he's said. we all are. alicia, i didn't mean that-- flint: what do you mean? well, i was thinking about you. if you care about me, stop talking that way. we apologize. we'd be glad to take you with us.
flint: muchacho. adams: all right, come on, everybody, we're rollin'! let's move out! adams: thornton... mr. thornton, that boy, he just sit there like that all the time? i think he's still in shock, major. my wife says he'll come out of it, but i'll be honest with you, he don't act like any kid i ever knew. how many young boys have you ever known
well, now what's the matter? my shoulder's itching again, major. oh, will you quit that? that's the third time you've done it today. it never itches when i'm around comanche or hopi, just when i smell sioux. listen, i'm not gonna be starting and stopping every time you get a hair-brained suspicion. now, you show me something specific and i'll run like a scared deer. you and that scar of yours. major, i'm tellin' ya, i smell sioux around. and they're not very far off. looks quiet enough to me. what do you expect, war whoops? don't you get smart with me, mccullough. we've movin' ahead. wagons...
well, now what? well, you wanted something specific-- that oughta do. god help him, he's still alive. go on, tell me those aren't sioux beads. i know they're sioux beads. so what am i supposed to do? so next time, listen. no sense in us sitting here arguing about it. let's get him back to the wagon. bill! go get some help. right away.
there's indians around. they caught some stranger up ahead. it's no sight for a woman, alicia, you stay where you are. there's nothing much you can do; nothing much anybody can do. is he dead? might as well be. he will be by sunset. thornton: too bad. nice young fella, about thirty, curly hair... hard to figure out what he's doing in this part of--- harm you. better come away from him, son. for boy. father, i'm afraid it's too late. he's laid out there so long those wounds have festered. i don't think we can save him. where are you going?
ton, the man's in real bad shape. major, if we had the proper medication, we could-- mr. thornton, i'm telling you, the man is dying. i don't think there's a thing in the world can save him. is there somebody on the train that's got medication that can help him? medication or no medication, when a man's been cut up like this and is left to lay out in the sun as long as he has, no medication that i know of in this world is gonna do him any good. what are you doing there, boy? wait a minute. i don't know what he's doing, but whatever it is, it's getting some kind of a reaction. maybe it's some kind of native poultice. i never saw it before. hawks: major adams, that kid-- so that's what he's doing with those berries. i saw him down in the wash and he was crushing 'em up. boy... what is that stuff? he wants to nurse the man, major adams. is there any good reason why he shouldn't? whatever it is, it seems to be working. it's the first time the boy's reacted at all, major. he wants to help. he wants to be of some use.
