Helen: Whit, I don't wanna stay here.
Whit: Of course you do, honey
Whit: We need each other more than ever now.
Helen: Yes we do but not here.
Janet: Chris, I'm tired of homecomings. So tired that this will be the last one.
Hale: A house raising is a wonderful American custom. I hope it never disappears from this land.
Hale: (to Helen) My family perished so that others might live and they died in vain only if there are no others. Others like you.
Helen: (to Whit) I told you I wasn't gonna stay out here with no neighbors so I went and found me some.
The major flaw in this episode is the actor who plays Chris Hale's son. The kid is such a doofus that you almost want to applaud when a Native American arrow strikes him in the back. Otherwise, the episode is fine.
