At the Carlton, Paladin is meeting with a touring Shakespearean actor, who gives a demonstration and offers Paladin some tickets. Once the actor leaves, Paladin tears up the tickets and starts to approach a passing woman. Hey Boy interrupts him with another telegram from Paladin’s friend William Gravely. Paladin expects yet another invitation to go on one of Gravely’s hunting party. However, this time Gravely says to see the newspaper about an Indian killing and asks Paladin to come immediately. Hey Boy gives Paladin the paper, which has an article on peaceful Hiwannee Indians killing a member of Gravely’s party. Paladin tells Hey Boy that he’ll be leaving immediately...Read the full recap
Paladin: Hey Boy, I wish somebody'd send you some mail sometime so you wouldn't have to read mine.
Hey Boy: No, your mail make me practice good Engrish.
Paladin: I see you have strength of mind enough to make your own decisions.
Charity: I'm flattered by your attention, Mr. Paladin. I would hardly suppose that a rugged man of the West living by his wits would be interested in the mere mind of a woman.
Paladin: Well, meeting a womanly woman with an unwomanly mind is a very stimulating thing.
Paladin: Show me the books a man doth read, and I will name his crying need.
Charity: Who said that?
Paladin: I did.
Paladin: Gravely thinks that you killed a white man named Roddy Crane. He was killed with a bow and arrow.
Chief: Hiwannee have not killed any white man for seventeen years. (thinks about it) Sixteen years.
Paladin: That's an enviable record.
Chief: Tell Gravely if he wants arrows for killing, let us know next time. We'll make Apache arrows!
Paladin: "Oh, it offends me to the soul to hear a robustiuous periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to tatters."
