(4) “Winchester Quarantine”

1
00:00:14,513 –> 00:00:17,982
There’s an irritating roughness about the way you people speak. Makes me obstinate. If you want me to leave,
you’re going to have to make me.
Whoa.

5
00:01:11,954 –> 00:01:13,388
Bridesville, folks.

6
00:01:31,440 –> 00:01:32,807
Can’t you finish him, Peavey?

7
00:01:49,291 –> 00:01:51,893
All right, break it up,
break it up!

8
00:01:51,927 –> 00:01:54,229
Would you be after killin’ him,
McNally?

9
00:01:54,263 –> 00:01:57,399
That murderin’ Indian is
still keeping diseased stock.

10
00:01:57,433 –> 00:01:59,734
Then take your fight
and fight it up in the hills

11
00:01:59,768 –> 00:02:01,403
where you belong.

12
00:02:01,437 –> 00:02:03,338
It’s the public streets
you’re obstructing.

13
00:02:03,372 –> 00:02:06,307
And who shot that horse?

14
00:02:06,342 –> 00:02:08,243
We told him it would happen.

15
00:02:08,277 –> 00:02:09,877
He can’t say we didn’t warn him.

16
00:02:11,847 –> 00:02:13,614
You’ll get this treatment
till you get rid

17
00:02:13,649 –> 00:02:15,283
of every head of stock
on your place.

18
00:02:15,317 –> 00:02:16,551
And I’m warning you, Indian,

19
00:02:16,585 –> 00:02:18,853
if one of our animals
comes down sick,

20
00:02:18,887 –> 00:02:21,423
we’ll see more than you just
don’t cross your boundaries.

21
00:02:21,457 –> 00:02:23,358
We’ll burn you out,
house, hide and hair.

22
00:02:25,494 –> 00:02:27,262
Now get that carcass
out of here.

23
00:02:27,296 –> 00:02:30,665
There’s sickness enough without
you savages spreading more.

24
00:02:45,981 –> 00:02:48,916
All right, come on,
break it up, break it up.

25
00:02:53,055 –> 00:02:55,923
Pardon me.

26
00:03:28,290 –> 00:03:31,792
Not interested in my
business card, huh?

27
00:03:35,164 –> 00:03:38,266
So, you’re the one
that put it in my pocket.

28
00:03:38,300 –> 00:03:40,268
If I had the money
to hire you,

29
00:03:40,302 –> 00:03:42,437
I would not be walking 20 miles
to my place.

30
00:03:42,471 –> 00:03:43,938
I would have another horse.

31
00:03:43,972 –> 00:03:45,607
Throw your saddle
over my extra one.

32
00:03:45,641 –> 00:03:47,375
I happen to be
going your way.

33
00:03:47,409 –> 00:03:49,377
No obligation.

34
00:03:49,411 –> 00:03:54,215
Before I take a favor, it’s
only right I should tell you…

35
00:03:54,250 –> 00:03:56,884
if I had the money,
I wouldn’t hire you.

36
00:03:56,918 –> 00:03:58,886
I don’t hold with men
who follow the gun.

37
00:03:58,920 –> 00:04:02,257
I agree, Mr. Whitehorse
– it’s not a practical profession.

38
00:04:10,266 –> 00:04:14,068
I had 150 prime,
healthy cows.

39
00:04:14,102 –> 00:04:17,572
Now ten are dead, the
rest ready to fall.

40
00:04:17,606 –> 00:04:20,741
I paid for them with
sweat and blisters.

41
00:04:20,776 –> 00:04:22,410
Has the veterinarian
looked at them?

42
00:04:22,444 –> 00:04:26,080
Can’t get him to come
out and have a look.

43
00:04:26,114 –> 00:04:28,916
I’m a mission
Indian, Cherokee.

44
00:04:28,950 –> 00:04:31,586
An educated Indian
has few friends

45
00:04:31,620 –> 00:04:34,255
among his people…
and fewer among yours.

46
00:04:34,290 –> 00:04:36,924
Certainly very few
in Bridesville.

47
00:04:36,958 –> 00:04:38,759
I cannot trade
in the stores.

48
00:04:38,794 –> 00:04:41,362
I have to buy my stuff through
the man who runs the pharmacy.

49
00:04:41,397 –> 00:04:44,765
He is about the only one
who will admit we’re human.

50
00:04:47,236 –> 00:04:51,206
My neighbors have such a tight
quarantine around me, I…

51
00:04:51,240 –> 00:04:56,477
I have to sneak off my
own place like a thief.

52
00:04:56,512 –> 00:04:59,547
You see how rich everything is around here?

53
00:04:59,582 –> 00:05:01,282
This is land a man
would fight for.

54
00:05:05,153 –> 00:05:07,388
My father wore
feathers in his hair,

55
00:05:07,423 –> 00:05:10,458
lived in a teepee, and
fought the white man.

56
00:05:10,492 –> 00:05:12,393
He sent me to
the Indian school.

57
00:05:12,428 –> 00:05:15,363
We learned to live and
think like the white man.

58
00:05:15,397 –> 00:05:19,900
He said that was the only way we
could have a home in our land.

59
00:05:19,935 –> 00:05:22,370
I met, married my wife
at the mission.

60
00:05:23,939 –> 00:05:25,473
We have built
our home.

61
00:05:25,507 –> 00:05:29,910
We will not be driven from
our land like my father.

62
00:05:33,549 –> 00:05:35,916
That’s Joe Peavey, the
one I was fighting-

63
00:05:35,951 –> 00:05:37,252
the one who
killed my horse.

64
00:05:37,286 –> 00:05:38,753
McNally’s foreman?

65
00:05:38,787 –> 00:05:40,955
More his troublemaker.

66
00:05:44,960 –> 00:05:47,362
Oh, you got yourself
another horse.

67
00:05:47,396 –> 00:05:49,196
The one you shot
cost me $20.

68
00:05:49,231 –> 00:05:50,798
You’re going to have to pay
for that.

69
00:05:50,832 –> 00:05:53,200
Sure. I’ll wait for you
at the county line

70
00:05:53,235 –> 00:05:55,436
and hand it to you
as you go across.

71
00:05:55,471 –> 00:05:57,872
You a friend of his, or
you just passing through?

72
00:05:57,906 –> 00:06:00,375
You ask that like a man hoping
for the wrong answer.

73
00:06:00,409 –> 00:06:02,209
Don’t spook this
man, Peavey.

74
00:06:02,244 –> 00:06:03,778
He’s a gunfighter.

75
00:06:05,847 –> 00:06:07,214
You working for an Indian?

76
00:06:07,249 –> 00:06:09,284
He hasn’t hired me yet.

77
00:06:09,318 –> 00:06:11,218
You’re just a half a mile
from his boundary.

78
00:06:11,253 –> 00:06:13,721
You aim to keep going? I
thought I’d look around.

79
00:06:13,756 –> 00:06:15,490
It ain’t that simple, Mister.

80
00:06:15,524 –> 00:06:17,892
You can ride that horse in,
but you try to ride him out,

81
00:06:17,926 –> 00:06:19,694
and he’ll go down with
a slug in his head.

82
00:06:19,728 –> 00:06:22,563
That’s a very unpleasant thing
to contemplate, Mr. Peavey.

83
00:06:22,598 –> 00:06:24,399
Well, you just
contemplate it anyway.

84
00:06:24,433 –> 00:06:26,901
No horse comes off that
ranch, yours or nobody’s.

85
00:06:26,935 –> 00:06:28,903
They mean that.
You’ll lose two good horses.

86
00:06:28,937 –> 00:06:30,237
I’ll walk the rest
of the way.

87
00:06:30,272 –> 00:06:32,239
You’ll ride. You’ve used
my horse for 15 miles.

88
00:06:32,274 –> 00:06:34,241
I expect a man who’s done
that to rub him down

89
00:06:34,276 –> 00:06:36,944
and ask me to sit at
table, Mr. Whitehorse.

90
00:07:05,240 –> 00:07:08,710
See? Another one dying.

91
00:07:08,744 –> 00:07:10,778
I don’t know what
I’m going to do.

92
00:07:12,414 –> 00:07:15,883
They just keep losing
weight and dying.

93
00:07:15,917 –> 00:07:17,084
Between this and McNally,

94
00:07:17,118 –> 00:07:19,220
I don’t know how much
longer I can hold out.

95
00:07:19,254 –> 00:07:21,522
A violent man is Mr. McNally.

96
00:07:23,425 –> 00:07:26,227
His father and brother
were scalped by the Sioux

97
00:07:26,261 –> 00:07:28,229
35 years ago.

98
00:07:28,263 –> 00:07:31,366
Tell me, what has this
to do with me?

99
00:07:50,669 –> 00:07:53,838
Does a gunslinger come high,
Mr. Paladin?

100
00:07:53,872 –> 00:07:57,342
Well, Mrs. Whitehorse,
I do have expensive tastes.

101
00:07:57,376 –> 00:08:00,345
Joseph…
I like it here.

102
00:08:00,379 –> 00:08:01,846
I want to live here.

103
00:08:01,880 –> 00:08:04,682
I think that right now
all we need is time.

104
00:08:04,716 –> 00:08:07,352
I think in time we’ll find out
what is sickening our cattle

105
00:08:07,386 –> 00:08:08,987
and-and have us
a healthy herd.

106
00:08:09,021 –> 00:08:11,522
And let the neighbors hate us
if they must.

107
00:08:11,556 –> 00:08:14,058
But we know
that is their burden, Martha.

108
00:08:14,093 –> 00:08:17,828
Joseph, if this man can scare
them into leaving us be…

109
00:08:17,863 –> 00:08:20,198
I will hear no
more of this talk.

110
00:08:20,232 –> 00:08:22,233
Joseph!

111
00:08:24,403 –> 00:08:26,871
You have had
three beatings,

112
00:08:26,905 –> 00:08:29,540
and-and you know
it won’t stop at that.

113
00:08:29,574 –> 00:08:33,544
You carry your gun,
but-but you say it’s for snakes

114
00:08:33,578 –> 00:08:36,047
and deadly things,
and-and not for killing people.

115
00:08:36,081 –> 00:08:38,549
Well, good.
That’s what we were taught,

116
00:08:38,583 –> 00:08:40,885
and I respect you
for holding to it, but…

117
00:08:40,919 –> 00:08:43,388
but they have put
a circle of guns around us,

118
00:08:43,422 –> 00:08:44,722
and-and what
are we to do now?

119
00:08:44,756 –> 00:08:45,956
I do not know.

120
00:08:46,992 –> 00:08:49,827
My father would’ve killed,

121
00:08:49,861 –> 00:08:53,164
but at the mission school,
where I got my education,

122
00:08:53,198 –> 00:08:55,433
they taught me
to think like a white man.

123
00:08:55,467 –> 00:08:58,336
Now I’m confused.
I do not know.

124
00:08:58,370 –> 00:09:01,506
Well, here is a white man
who does.

125
00:09:01,540 –> 00:09:05,843
We have no money…
but this is rich land,

126
00:09:05,877 –> 00:09:09,414
and we will give you part of it
if you will help…

127
00:09:10,449 –> 00:09:13,351
This is Martha’s day
to need forgiveness.

128
00:09:13,385 –> 00:09:15,753
She is carrying our first child,

129
00:09:15,787 –> 00:09:17,721
and she is
easily upset.

130
00:09:17,756 –> 00:09:20,858
I’m sure it’ll be
a fine youngster.

131
00:09:20,892 –> 00:09:23,528
I’m sorry, Mrs. Whitehorse,
I don’t care to own land.

132
00:09:23,562 –> 00:09:25,530
It’s a thing that grows
to a man’s feet,

133
00:09:25,564 –> 00:09:28,466
and that’s not the kind of
a life I’ve chosen for myself.

134
00:09:29,501 –> 00:09:31,869
Well, then you have wasted
your journey,

135
00:09:31,903 –> 00:09:35,039
because all we have to offer
is cows that are dying

136
00:09:35,074 –> 00:09:37,875
and land
we are being driven from.

137
00:09:37,909 –> 00:09:40,878
You told Peavey he’d have to pay
for that horse he shot.

138
00:09:40,912 –> 00:09:42,547
I don’t mind
taking over that debt,

139
00:09:42,581 –> 00:09:44,549
and I’ll trade you
the horse you rode home on.

140
00:09:44,583 –> 00:09:45,883
But that is
a fine horse.

141
00:09:45,917 –> 00:09:47,218
You are cheating
yourself.

142
00:09:47,252 –> 00:09:50,888
I may ask Peavey to throw in
something else of value.

143
00:09:50,922 –> 00:09:52,923
Thank you
for your hospitality.

144
00:10:08,773 –> 00:10:11,409
Hold on, which one
are you aiming at?

145
00:10:11,443 –> 00:10:14,245
The horse…
but what if I hit the rider?

146
00:10:14,279 –> 00:10:16,013
Do you know anybody
who’d start crying?

147
00:10:18,850 –> 00:10:21,419
He’s not even trying to
ride off the ranch yet.

148
00:10:21,453 –> 00:10:23,921
Well, suppose he tries
and makes it?

149
00:10:23,955 –> 00:10:26,156
What do you think
we’re here for?

150
00:10:40,972 –> 00:10:43,474
Get out of here! Go on! Hyah!

151
00:11:13,438 –> 00:11:15,238
You did that shooting?

152
00:11:15,273 –> 00:11:17,074
This here’s
the Indian’s boundary.

153
00:11:17,108 –> 00:11:18,241
We warned you
clear enough.

154
00:11:18,276 –> 00:11:19,743
I remember.

155
00:11:19,778 –> 00:11:22,412
Now I’ll use one of your
horses to get me back to town.

156
00:11:22,447 –> 00:11:26,249
You lay a hand on that bridle,
you Injun lover, and I’ll…

157
00:11:26,284 –> 00:11:28,218
You want some?

158
00:11:30,188 –> 00:11:32,255
Tell McNally what happened.

159
00:11:32,290 –> 00:11:35,593
He’ll find me in town.

160
00:12:05,924 –> 00:12:07,925
Yes, sir?

161
00:12:09,427 –> 00:12:12,129
Lovely type. What if I ask you to test it?

162
00:12:12,163 –> 00:12:14,899
Mister, I’ve got enough
stuff in bottles and jars

163
00:12:14,933 –> 00:12:16,567
to test every substance
known to man,

164
00:12:16,601 –> 00:12:18,903
with the possible exception
of the local mentality.

165
00:12:18,937 –> 00:12:20,404
Well, that’s
what I wanted to know.

166
00:12:20,438 –> 00:12:23,440
Of course, there’s
always this way.

167
00:12:24,943 –> 00:12:28,078
Wish I had a
thousand like it.

168
00:12:28,112 –> 00:12:29,413
Keep that one
for a starter.

169
00:12:29,447 –> 00:12:31,749
You’re kind of generous
for a stranger.

170
00:12:31,783 –> 00:12:33,083
You just passing through?

171
00:12:33,117 –> 00:12:35,586
I may be staying at McNally’s
for a few days.

172
00:12:35,620 –> 00:12:36,921
I’m not impressed.

173
00:12:36,955 –> 00:12:38,255
That’s careless talk,
Mister.

174
00:12:38,289 –> 00:12:40,257
I understand McNally
is a big man around here.

175
00:12:40,291 –> 00:12:42,526
Mister, I’ve watched your
friend being big around here

176
00:12:42,561 –> 00:12:44,628
for about five years, and
I’m getting tired of it,

177
00:12:44,663 –> 00:12:46,396
and you can tell him so.

178
00:12:48,399 –> 00:12:50,034
Now, what can I do for you?

179
00:12:50,068 –> 00:12:51,869
Do you know the
Whitehorses?

180
00:12:51,903 –> 00:12:54,872
You mean our thieving, scalping,
overeducated local Indians?

181
00:12:54,906 –> 00:12:56,540
I do… and before
you say your piece,

182
00:12:56,575 –> 00:12:58,709
let me inform you
this is the only store in town

183
00:12:58,743 –> 00:13:01,045
that’ll do business with him
and proud to say it.

184
00:13:01,079 –> 00:13:02,880
Now, what’s on your mind?

185
00:13:02,914 –> 00:13:06,550
Well, I guess I’ve come
to the right place.

186
00:13:06,585 –> 00:13:08,886
Now, then…

187
00:13:08,920 –> 00:13:12,923
we begin with the
word “suppose”…

188
00:13:21,933 –> 00:13:23,934
McNally.

189
00:13:27,806 –> 00:13:29,740
That’s Peavey’s horse,
all right.

190
00:13:29,774 –> 00:13:32,076
Well, let’s have a look
at this gun shark.

191
00:13:32,110 –> 00:13:34,078
McNally, he’s fast.

192
00:13:34,112 –> 00:13:37,581
Go on back to your ranch if
you feel your saddle slipping.

193
00:13:37,616 –> 00:13:40,283
There’s enough of us here
to slow him down.

194
00:13:44,956 –> 00:13:46,156
Gentlemen.

195
00:13:50,261 –> 00:13:52,930
You pistol whip my foreman,
steal his horse?

196
00:13:52,964 –> 00:13:55,232
I disciplined your foreman,
Mr. McNally.

197
00:13:55,266 –> 00:13:58,068
As to the horse, Peavey owed
Joe Whitehorse for one he shot.

198
00:13:58,103 –> 00:14:00,070
I took over the debt
and settled it.

199
00:14:00,105 –> 00:14:02,072
You working for Whitehorse?

200
00:14:02,107 –> 00:14:03,907
What kind of men
are we breeding,

201
00:14:03,942 –> 00:14:05,109
taking wages
from an Indian?

202
00:14:05,143 –> 00:14:06,610
I couldn’t get a dollar
out of him.

203
00:14:06,645 –> 00:14:08,578
He doesn’t have one.
That’s why I’m here.

204
00:14:08,613 –> 00:14:10,781
And from here, you can see
the road out of town.

205
00:14:14,719 –> 00:14:18,922
There’s an irritating roughness
about the way you people speak.

206
00:14:18,957 –> 00:14:20,924
It makes me obstinate.

207
00:14:20,959 –> 00:14:23,593
You want me to leave town,
Mr. McNally?

208
00:14:23,628 –> 00:14:27,597
Well, you’re the loud spokesman
for this community.

209
00:14:27,632 –> 00:14:30,267
Wouldn’t you like to try?

210
00:14:30,301 –> 00:14:32,903
I’m an honest man.
I’m not a gunfighter.

211
00:14:32,937 –> 00:14:34,437
Well, gentlemen,

212
00:14:34,472 –> 00:14:37,141
we’ve established
one interesting fact.

213
00:14:37,175 –> 00:14:39,209
If I do lease
my services

214
00:14:39,243 –> 00:14:41,444
to Joe Whitehorse, we know
exactly how you’ll react.

215
00:14:41,479 –> 00:14:42,780
If you’re not
with the Indian,

216
00:14:42,814 –> 00:14:44,114
what are you
deviling us for?

217
00:14:44,149 –> 00:14:45,415
I want to be hired.

218
00:14:45,449 –> 00:14:47,785
We’re doing fine by ourselves.

219
00:14:47,819 –> 00:14:49,920
Neglecting your ranches,
staying away from your work

220
00:14:49,954 –> 00:14:51,288
while you try to starve him out?

221
00:14:51,322 –> 00:14:53,323
He don’t have to starve;
he can sell me his place.

222
00:14:53,357 –> 00:14:56,226
I offered to buy him out the
first day I knew what he was,

223
00:14:56,260 –> 00:14:57,627
but there’s nothing
more stubborn

224
00:14:57,662 –> 00:14:58,729
than an educated Indian.

225
00:14:58,763 –> 00:15:00,397
Did you offer him a profit?

226
00:15:00,431 –> 00:15:01,899
I offered him what
he paid for it.

227
00:15:01,933 –> 00:15:04,568
Ask anybody.
I’m asking you.

228
00:15:04,602 –> 00:15:06,136
Does the offer still hold?

229
00:15:06,171 –> 00:15:08,906
Yeah… if somebody
can make him take it.

230
00:15:08,940 –> 00:15:10,808
You saying you can?

231
00:15:10,842 –> 00:15:12,242
All you have to decide

232
00:15:12,276 –> 00:15:14,812
is how willing
you want that Indian to be.

233
00:15:14,846 –> 00:15:17,480
Well, boys?

234
00:15:17,515 –> 00:15:20,550
I’m buying the land.

235
00:15:20,585 –> 00:15:23,220
Do I have to fight your battle
for you, or are you with me?

236
00:15:28,960 –> 00:15:31,161
Kelso’s in
with the rest of us.

237
00:15:31,196 –> 00:15:33,764
Let’s go open a bottle
and talk.

238
00:15:33,798 –> 00:15:35,432
I thought
you wanted action.

239
00:15:35,466 –> 00:15:37,101
Well, good.

240
00:15:37,135 –> 00:15:39,302
Get on out there right away. No, McNally,

241
00:15:39,337 –> 00:15:42,072
first you go to the bank
and withdraw certain funds.

242
00:15:42,107 –> 00:15:44,842
I’m sure Joe Whitehorse will
want to be paid off in cash.

243
00:15:44,876 –> 00:15:46,877
That’s a lot to trust you with.

244
00:15:46,911 –> 00:15:48,812
I see your point.

245
00:15:48,847 –> 00:15:51,548
Well, you may carry it,

246
00:15:51,582 –> 00:15:55,352
and, McNally, carry
an extra $2,000. My fee.

247
00:15:55,386 –> 00:15:56,887
$2,000?

248
00:15:56,921 –> 00:15:58,889
That’s right.
My fee just went up.

249
00:15:58,923 –> 00:16:00,924
How much money
do you think I’ve got?

250
00:16:00,959 –> 00:16:05,763
How much do you hate Indians…
especially the educated variety?

251
00:16:09,801 –> 00:16:13,270
All right.
I’ll go to the bank.

252
00:16:37,128 –> 00:16:39,596
Well, you look
like a happy man.

253
00:16:39,630 –> 00:16:42,599
Five years I’ve been dozing
among these backwards heathens.

254
00:16:42,633 –> 00:16:44,567
Five years with the most
complete laboratory

255
00:16:44,602 –> 00:16:46,036
in this territory
gathering dust,

256
00:16:46,070 –> 00:16:47,570
and all the while
pleading with ’em

257
00:16:47,605 –> 00:16:48,705
to submit their problems

258
00:16:48,739 –> 00:16:50,874
to the analysis
of modern science.

259
00:16:50,909 –> 00:16:51,909
Not a chance…

260
00:16:51,943 –> 00:16:54,878
not with a McNally
telling ’em how to think.

261
00:16:54,913 –> 00:16:57,214
Science has absolutely no
standing in a community

262
00:16:57,248 –> 00:16:58,715
where they still
bury chicken heads

263
00:16:58,749 –> 00:17:01,919
by the light of the moon
to get rid of warts.

264
00:17:08,759 –> 00:17:10,227
Here we go.

265
00:17:10,261 –> 00:17:14,097
I’m only guessing
at what we’re looking for.

266
00:17:32,801 –> 00:17:34,434
They’re waiting,
Mr. Whitehorse.

267
00:17:34,468 –> 00:17:36,436
You’ve already overtaxed
their patience.

268
00:17:36,470 –> 00:17:39,439
Perhaps you did not
understand me, Mr. Paladin.

269
00:17:39,473 –> 00:17:41,108
When I said I was stubborn,

270
00:17:41,142 –> 00:17:43,443
that meant I would not be pushed
off my land.

271
00:17:43,477 –> 00:17:44,945
I’m staying here.

272
00:17:44,979 –> 00:17:46,713
I already told McNally
you’d sell.

273
00:17:46,747 –> 00:17:48,548
Then tell him you
were mistaken.

274
00:17:48,582 –> 00:17:50,217
Why are you doing this?

275
00:17:50,251 –> 00:17:52,886
Why should you force us
off our land?

276
00:17:52,921 –> 00:17:55,055
Is-is it the money
we can’t pay you?

277
00:17:55,089 –> 00:17:57,390
Mrs. Whitehorse,
it’s my considered opinion

278
00:17:57,425 –> 00:17:59,893
that this land
should belong to McNally.

279
00:17:59,928 –> 00:18:02,562
And what if that
is not my opinion?

280
00:18:02,596 –> 00:18:03,831
What if I were to say

281
00:18:03,865 –> 00:18:06,900
I were not afraid to stand
up to that gun of yours?

282
00:18:06,935 –> 00:18:08,735
Well, now that would make
everything

283
00:18:08,769 –> 00:18:10,270
very uncomfortable for me.

284
00:18:11,372 –> 00:18:13,573
You’re no better
than the others.

285
00:18:13,842 –> 00:18:17,077
You wouldn’t turn on us
if we weren’t different.

286
00:18:17,111 –> 00:18:20,247
We didn’t come here
to hurt anybody.

287
00:18:20,281 –> 00:18:24,918
The mission didn’t teach
us to hate and to kill.

288
00:18:24,953 –> 00:18:27,087
We want to live in peace,

289
00:18:27,121 –> 00:18:29,256
to have a home
and to build for ourselves

290
00:18:29,290 –> 00:18:30,523
and those that come after,

291
00:18:30,558 –> 00:18:33,260
and you know
that about us.

292
00:18:33,294 –> 00:18:36,263
You know we want to live.

293
00:18:36,297 –> 00:18:40,968
It’s our strength that
makes us move on, not yours.

294
00:18:44,973 –> 00:18:48,075
All right, sell
it, Joseph.

295
00:18:49,577 –> 00:18:53,914
Give them their bill of sale,
and let’s get out of here.

296
00:19:10,331 –> 00:19:11,999
There.

297
00:19:12,033 –> 00:19:14,334
Now you have
earned your money.

298
00:19:16,337 –> 00:19:18,272
Thank you.

299
00:19:18,306 –> 00:19:20,173
I’ll tell McNally
he can take possession.

300
00:19:20,208 –> 00:19:21,909
But just give us
time to pack and leave

301
00:19:21,943 –> 00:19:23,343
so we don’t have
to look at him.

302
00:19:23,378 –> 00:19:25,012
I don’t think
he’ll be here

303
00:19:25,046 –> 00:19:26,646
more than a few moments.

304
00:19:34,639 –> 00:19:37,407
Looks like I bought me a ranch.

305
00:19:37,442 –> 00:19:39,709
All right, boys,
you know what to do.

306
00:19:52,023 –> 00:19:53,923
They’re killing them!

307
00:19:53,958 –> 00:19:55,492
Did you know
he was going to do this?

308
00:19:55,527 –> 00:19:58,061
I didn’t think even
McNally was that stupid.

309
00:20:00,398 –> 00:20:03,634
Oh, when will you meet a gun
faster than yours?

310
00:20:08,540 –> 00:20:10,674
I cannot see
how I figured you so wrong.

311
00:20:26,558 –> 00:20:28,024
All signed
and delivered, huh?

312
00:20:28,059 –> 00:20:29,025
It’s your ranch

313
00:20:29,060 –> 00:20:30,327
and you’re killing
your own cattle.

314
00:20:30,361 –> 00:20:32,563
Ah, filthy,
disease-ridden critters.

315
00:20:32,597 –> 00:20:34,798
How’d you make
out with the Indian?

316
00:20:34,832 –> 00:20:35,865
Did he pull his tommyhawk?

317
00:20:35,900 –> 00:20:38,569
I’m afraid he’s given up
the ways of his father.

318
00:20:38,603 –> 00:20:39,603
Come into the house

319
00:20:39,637 –> 00:20:40,870
and get your bill
of sale.

320
00:20:40,905 –> 00:20:42,339
I’ve got no use
for a critter

321
00:20:42,373 –> 00:20:44,541
that hangs on when he
knows he ain’t wanted.

322
00:20:51,549 –> 00:20:52,882
Here is your ranch.

323
00:20:52,917 –> 00:20:55,885
I have the feeling
you were itching for it

324
00:20:55,920 –> 00:20:58,222
even before
my cows took sick.

325
00:20:58,256 –> 00:21:00,990
Whitehorse, you learn
something from this business.

326
00:21:01,025 –> 00:21:03,327
You Indians have reservations
all over the country.

327
00:21:03,361 –> 00:21:04,494
That’s where you belong.

328
00:21:04,529 –> 00:21:05,662
Forget your fool education

329
00:21:05,697 –> 00:21:06,996
and go on back
to your teepee.

330
00:21:07,031 –> 00:21:08,898
There’s one item
we don’t want to forget-

331
00:21:08,933 –> 00:21:09,899
$2,000.

332
00:21:09,934 –> 00:21:11,201
See me in town.

333
00:21:11,236 –> 00:21:14,404
I see you right now,
Mr. McNally, perfectly.

334
00:21:17,242 –> 00:21:19,610
You needed a gunslinger
to get rid of us.

335
00:21:19,644 –> 00:21:22,546
We’d have had the land yet
if it weren’t for him.

336
00:21:22,580 –> 00:21:25,249
I did you a great service,
Mrs. Whitehorse.

337
00:21:25,283 –> 00:21:26,783
This land is useless.

338
00:21:26,817 –> 00:21:27,784
It’s poisoned.

339
00:21:27,818 –> 00:21:29,386
Poisoned?

340
00:21:31,556 –> 00:21:33,123
Poisoned?

341
00:21:33,157 –> 00:21:36,059
Don’t ever try to pasture
cattle out here, McNally.

342
00:21:36,093 –> 00:21:37,093
They’ll die.

343
00:21:37,128 –> 00:21:38,862
You telling me
what I can do?

344
00:21:38,896 –> 00:21:40,631
If that disease is in here
that thick,

345
00:21:40,665 –> 00:21:42,266
I’ll burn this place
to the ground.

346
00:21:42,300 –> 00:21:43,833
Every tree,
every blade of grass.

347
00:21:43,868 –> 00:21:45,769
There’ll be no disease
when I get through.

348
00:21:45,803 –> 00:21:47,103
I had the soil
analyzed.

349
00:21:47,138 –> 00:21:49,105
There’s a particular element
that sometimes occurs

350
00:21:49,140 –> 00:21:50,106
in excessive amounts.

351
00:21:50,141 –> 00:21:51,941
When that happens,
it affects the vegetation

352
00:21:51,976 –> 00:21:53,744
and that’s what
we have here.

353
00:21:53,778 –> 00:21:55,044
But you said poison.

354
00:21:55,079 –> 00:21:56,613
Almost as bad as poison.

355
00:21:56,648 –> 00:21:58,548
When the cattle eat
that vegetation…

356
00:21:58,583 –> 00:22:00,317
Right here on our land?

357
00:22:00,351 –> 00:22:02,252
On McNally’s land,
almost all of it.

358
00:22:02,287 –> 00:22:03,387
There’s no such thing.

359
00:22:03,421 –> 00:22:04,655
I’m sorry to
say there is.

360
00:22:04,689 –> 00:22:06,590
I saw this cattle
sickness once before

361
00:22:06,624 –> 00:22:08,091
down on the
San Joaquin range.

362
00:22:08,125 –> 00:22:09,326
There’s no poison in dirt.

363
00:22:09,360 –> 00:22:11,027
I’ve lived on the land
all my life.

364
00:22:11,061 –> 00:22:12,162
Dirt is dirt.

365
00:22:12,196 –> 00:22:13,297
Except when
it’s called soil

366
00:22:13,331 –> 00:22:14,998
and then it becomes
a particular thing.

367
00:22:15,032 –> 00:22:16,667
The particular thing
that you bought

368
00:22:16,701 –> 00:22:19,336
would have ruined these
people in just a short time.

369
00:22:19,370 –> 00:22:20,904
You really
should have waited.

370
00:22:20,938 –> 00:22:22,306
What kind of hogwash?

371
00:22:22,340 –> 00:22:23,607
You believe this?

372
00:22:23,641 –> 00:22:25,842
Is this what you were tending to
over at Rheinhart’s?

373
00:22:25,876 –> 00:22:27,010
He’s an excellent
chemist.

374
00:22:27,044 –> 00:22:29,012
I never heard of such
a thing in all my life.

375
00:22:29,046 –> 00:22:30,781
Well, it’s not particularly new.

376
00:22:30,815 –> 00:22:32,982
Molybdenum has been known
for centuries.

377
00:22:33,017 –> 00:22:34,851
It looks somewhat
like white iron.

378
00:22:34,885 –> 00:22:37,053
It can be found
anywhere in the world.

379
00:22:37,087 –> 00:22:39,656
As a matter of fact,
Pliny wrote about molybdenum

380
00:22:39,691 –> 00:22:42,292
when he was in the employ
of the Emperor Nero.

381
00:22:42,327 –> 00:22:44,027
Now there was a man
of prejudice.

382
00:22:44,061 –> 00:22:46,363
He kept lions for the
people he didn’t like.

383
00:22:46,397 –> 00:22:48,532
What the blazes
are you talking about?

384
00:22:48,566 –> 00:22:49,533
Talk English.

385
00:22:49,567 –> 00:22:50,801
I’ll spell it
out for you.

386
00:22:50,835 –> 00:22:52,836
I’m sure Mrs. Whitehorse
won’t mind.

387
00:22:52,870 –> 00:22:55,772
The house belongs
to Mr. McNally now.

388
00:22:57,408 –> 00:22:59,643
The criminal is called…

389
00:23:07,318 –> 00:23:09,152
…molybdenum.

390
00:23:09,186 –> 00:23:11,120
Hereafter known
as “McNally’s folly.”

391
00:23:11,155 –> 00:23:13,590
And you shouldn’t have killed
those cattle.

392
00:23:13,624 –> 00:23:15,158
You could have saved them.

393
00:23:15,192 –> 00:23:17,927
Paladin, let me understand
one thing.

394
00:23:17,962 –> 00:23:20,230
You knew about this all along?

395
00:23:20,264 –> 00:23:22,566
Let’s say I suspected it.

396
00:23:22,600 –> 00:23:24,100
When you took my money?

397
00:23:24,134 –> 00:23:26,436
Well, Rheinhart
hadn’t confirmed it.

398
00:23:26,471 –> 00:23:28,304
Oh, you’ve been had,
McNally.

399
00:23:28,339 –> 00:23:29,606
This land is useless to you.

400
00:23:29,640 –> 00:23:32,476
And you better have Rheinhart
check every acre in this valley.

401
00:23:32,510 –> 00:23:36,079
All right.
I’ve been out-traded.

402
00:23:36,113 –> 00:23:37,080
But I don’t lose all.

403
00:23:37,114 –> 00:23:38,382
You’re still leaving here.

404
00:23:38,416 –> 00:23:40,316
I do not want
your money this way.

405
00:23:40,351 –> 00:23:42,919
It’s been in your hands.
I wouldn’t touch it.

406
00:23:42,953 –> 00:23:44,287
But this fella,

407
00:23:44,321 –> 00:23:47,290
he’s got some money
I don’t mind taking back.

408
00:23:47,324 –> 00:23:48,425
And I mean to take it.

409
00:23:48,459 –> 00:23:50,627
Ease up, Clyde. So you
went over the saddle.

410
00:23:50,661 –> 00:23:51,895
It happens to every man.

411
00:23:51,929 –> 00:23:52,896
Not to me.

412
00:23:59,069 –> 00:24:02,572
Never draw in anger,
Mr. McNally.

413
00:24:02,607 –> 00:24:05,074
It slows the hand.

414
00:24:05,109 –> 00:24:06,209
Get outside.

415
00:24:08,446 –> 00:24:09,546
Outside!

416
00:24:25,229 –> 00:24:27,531
If you’re looking
for some land to buy,

417
00:24:27,565 –> 00:24:28,565
I have a section

418
00:24:28,599 –> 00:24:30,667
you might care for.

419
00:24:30,701 –> 00:24:32,502
Thank you.

420
00:24:32,537 –> 00:24:33,570
We will see you in town.

421
00:24:33,604 –> 00:24:37,373
No, drop by the house.

422
00:24:37,408 –> 00:24:39,643
You’ll meet my wife.

423
00:24:47,351 –> 00:24:48,452
Well.

424
00:24:48,486 –> 00:24:49,553
Well, I’m sorry

425
00:24:49,587 –> 00:24:51,755
to have given you
some bad moments,

426
00:24:51,789 –> 00:24:55,525
but it’s very difficult to
conspire with an honest man.

427
00:24:55,560 –> 00:24:58,428
Oh, Mr. Paladin, you
had a very close call.

428
00:24:58,463 –> 00:25:00,831
Well, fortunately,
the close ones don’t count.

429
00:25:00,865 –> 00:25:03,266
Oh, I don’t mean McNally.

430
00:25:05,937 –> 00:25:09,172
This was going
to be my last word to you.

431
00:25:09,206 –> 00:25:12,809
But, Martha, I never
keep that gun loaded.
