Oh, Wakantanka,|Great Spirit of the Sun--
source of all life, created|in violence, pleasure and pain
which then takes life|to sustain life,
continuing the eternal cycle|of life and death--
I stand humble and obedient|before you.
Make me worthy!
How many is that?
Six, Your Lordship.
You may address me as ''John.''
It won't happen again.
You slip at least|once a day.
How many weeks have I been|dinning it into you.
Yes, Sir John.
Six, did you say?
In a row.
That's good shootin', John.
Thank you, Maddock.
You may address me as ''Joe.''
What did you say that was?
At home in England,|I'd be shooting grouse.
It just occurred to me,
I've traveled halfway|around the world
at great expense
simply to kill|a different kind of bird.
Well, what's wrong with that
if you ain't got|nothing better to do?
Oh, I ain't, Joe.
For five years, I ain't got|nothin' better to do.
You musta picked up a lot|of beans
Not only beans, Joe
but family titles, family|property, family position...
all picked up,|all inherited.
Everything I ever wanted|in life I've bought,
including you three.
In England, I looked up|to God and royalty
and down upon everybody else.
Well, what you been doin'|for five years?
In 1820, I committed|the unpardonable sin
of resigning my commission|in the Guards.
It wasn't an earned commission|anyway.
In my family,|it came with birth.
So, here I am...|shooting birds.
Your Northwest Territory...
it is beautiful.
I dumped the water outta that|damned tub into his tent.
All over his tent...
And look what I found.
That spell ''rum'', don't it?
Hey, Ed... draw.
Still drunk as coots.
I'm going to have|to talk to those two.
In a pinch, I've known|'em to drink coal oil.
Oh-- beat the drums|and sound the brass,
here come one big horse's ass.
What were you two firing at?
Nothin' in particular.
That was an accident.
Even at this range,|I'm inclined to believe you.
How long would it take us|to go back to St. Louis?
Maybe a month if,|if we don't do no more huntin'
We'll start in the morning.
If the wagon breaks down,|abandon it and the team.
We'll travel by riding horses|if necessary.
Is them orders, John?
Those are orders, Maddock.
Well, you've boozed us|out of another job.
We ain't shuttin' down camp.
He guaranteed us|four months wages.
You'll get your money.
That's one thing|the dude ain't is-- cheap.
Yeah, and if he runs|a little short,
his family can always|sell the ''cawstle'.
Oh, I never seen such a fella.
He won't even chew tobacco.
That water's powerful cold,|Your Lordship.
Thank you, Maddock.
I can assure you I've been bred|to get used to it.
This ain't gonna be no bath.
He's goin' ice-skating.
Listen, you rum-heads,|that's enough.
We was just warnin' him.
Somethin' must have spooked him.
Naw. He seen Tin-pan Morgan|goin' by.
Oh, my God.
I've had enough!
I'm not a horse!
I'm not an animal.
Whatever the bloody hell|the name is.
I am a man!
Pauvre bte. Imbcile.
la chance. Une fois.
la grande promenade, promenade?
Qui es tu?
Don't be absurd.
Eh, eh, eh, eh.
Me speak 'Anglais'.
Well, when you address me,|would you kindly speak it?
Yes. I will speak it.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
