Pat Brennan:
You got a fine boy there, Hank. He knows his stock. He'll make a first rate station man one day.



Hank Parker:
Not if I can help it, he won't. Ain't a fit life bein' stuck out in the middle of nowhere, all by yourself, knowin' nobody but stage drivers and shotguns. Ain't no fit life at all.



Pat Brennan:
Always thought you were happy at it.



Hank Parker:
Well...



Pat Brennan:
[excepts a gourdful of water from Hank] Thanks.



Hank Parker:
...I was. When Jeff's mother was alive, I was. Alone, it's different. My retire time comes up next fall and I'm gonna take it. A man shouldn't oughta be stuck off by hisself in this kind of country, Pat. It ain't natural!



Pat Brennan:
You wouldn't be half meanin' me by that, would ya, Hank?



Hank Parker:
Well, come to think of it, I guess I do. Ain't right your workin' that spread of yours all alone.



Pat Brennan:
Can't afford to hire hands - not yet, anyway. Still a lot of building to do, fences to run and such. But if I get to lonely, Hank, I can always talk to my stock!



Hank Parker:
Well, when they start talkin' back to ya, just remember what I told ya.

Usher:
I'm gonna have me a place someday. I thought about it, I thought about it a lot. A man should have somethin' of his own, somethin' to belong to, to be proud of.



Pat Brennan:
And you think you'll get it this way.



Usher:
Sometimes you don't have a choice.



Pat Brennan:
Don't you?

Pat Brennan:
Did you love him?



Doretta Mims:
I married him.



Pat Brennan:
That's not what I asked.



Doretta Mims:
Yes! Yes, I did.



Pat Brennan:
Mrs. Mims, you're a liar. You didn't love him, and never for one minute thought he loved you. That's true, isn't it?



Doretta Mims:
Do you know what it's like to be alone in a camp full of roughneck miners, and a father who holds a quiet hatred for you because you're not the son he's always wanted? Yes, I married Willard Mims because I couldn't stand being alone anymore. I know all the time he didn't love me, but I didn't care. I thought I'd make him love me... by the time that he asked me to marry him, I'd told myself inside for so long that I believed it was me he cared for and not the money.
