Capt. Robert MacClaw:
I'm getting out of the Army in seven days.



Martha Cutting:
As a civilian?



Capt. Robert MacClaw:
As a doctor.

The riflemen are going to fight from the wagons.



Maj. Gibbs:
Fight from wagons?



Capt. Robert MacClaw:
Well, why not?

Capt. Robert MacClaw:
So the book says. Let's keep a closed book and an open mind, Major.
