Episode Quotes
Hale: Wherever there is buffalo there are Indians watching whoever invades their land and herd.

Hale: You chose land without any water on it.
Darland: We think it chose us.

Darland: A boy can't live in a man's world until he becomes a man. He must be protected until he becomes a man.

Darland: I'm sorry to repay your kindness with trouble, Mr. Hale, but we're staying at Valley Haven.

Darland: I'm not a violent person, Mrs. Baxter, but if you were a man I'd hit you.
