Boone Cardell:
Why did she want to grab this?



Zeb Calloway:
That's a Blackfoot scalp you got, and she knows it. Ain't you ever thought of why an injun takes a scalp?



Jim Deakins:
Why?



Zeb Calloway:
To shame an enemy. The way she figures it, there's a Blackfoot brave somewhere who can't show his face to the hereafter until that thing is buried under the ground.

[while Jim was unconscious, Zeb and Boone amputated Jim's mangled finger]



Jim Deakins:
Who's got it?



Boone Cardell:
Got what?



Jim Deakins:
My finger! What's a man going to do without his finger?



Zeb Calloway:
What do you want your finger for?



Jim Deakins:
Zeb Calloway, didn't you tell me an injun can't go to heaven unless he's whole? Didn't ya?



Zeb Calloway:
That's right, I did.



Boone Cardell:
You sure did.



Jim Deakins:
That's what I heard. It sounds right, too, don't it?



Zeb Calloway:
Sounds right.



Boone Cardell:
How can you go up there without your finger?

Zeb Calloway:
Blackfeet... proud injuns. They ain't gonna let no white man spy on their country. The only thing they are feared of is a white man's sickness.



Boone Cardell:
What's that?



Zeb Calloway:
Grabs. White men don't see nothing pretty unless they want to grab it. The more they grab, the more they want to grab. It's like a fever and they can't get cured. The only thing for them to do is to keep on grabbin' until everything belongs to white men and then start grabbin' from each other. I reckon injuns got no reason to love nothing white.
