(SAW GRINDING)

ROSALIE:

An adverb modifies a verb

by telling us

how something's done,

where something's done,

-or when something's done.

-When something's done.

Lucy.

The music played quietly.

And the adverb is?

-Quietly.

-Quietly.

Sylvie.

The dog runs

through the house.

Is right because...

It's explaining

where the dog ran.

Is correct, but if you wanted

to say how the dog ran...

-Quickly?

-Quickly. Very good, girls.

(HORSES WHINNYING)

(SAW CLATTERS)

Rosalie! Girls!

-They're coming.

-Oh, dear God!

SYLVIE:
Mommy,

what's happening?

There are people coming

for our horses, sweetie.

Lucy, grab Jacob.

Remember our plan.

Sylvie, get away

from the door!

Grab Jacob's bear.

I'll meet you

at the top of the ridge.

-Wesley, come with us.

-If I don't,

they're gonna take

it all or burn it down.

Let them. Please come.

-Daddy, please come.

-Run for the door, girls.

Run for the door.

-Please come.

-Rosalie, run.

-Go. Run, girls, run! Go!

-Let's go, girls.

-Go!

-Run, girls.

-Run!

-Run!

MAN:

I got it.

Hold her.

-I got him. Got him.

-Come on, redskin.

Give up. Come on!

(MEN EXCLAIMING)

Come on now.

Come on, red.

Get up, boy.

(WOMAN WAILING)

Come on now.

-Get up.

-Come on, red. Get up.

TOLAN:

Looks like you got it, Joe.

Yeah.

How far did they get?

-(MAN SHOUTING)

-(WOMAN CRYING)

Diablo Canyon.

-Apaches, huh?

-Uh-huh.

Get up!

It's gotta be about

the end of them, eh?

We think, but, like ants,

they just keep coming.

MAN:
Y'all escape,

this is what happens.

Next time, we ain't bothering

bringing you back.

It ought not to be

this way, Joe.

Is there

a better way, Tolan?

Getting tired, Joe.

I think I've reached

the end of my sojourn.

They say I'm not fit.

Sort of have the...

The melancholia.

Mmm-hmm.

Well, there's no such thing.

Twenty years

I gave this Union.

They took my guns, Joe.

You're out anyway.

Hmm.

What'd you give?

Twenty? Twenty-five?

I stopped counting.

You remember that, uh...

That time when Kiowa put

his war-lance in your belly?

Yeah.

You remember you were sitting

there in the water...

just trying to hold

your guts in there.

Hmm.

And I came by

and you looked at me,

and you had

that look on your face.

You looked so young.

Like somebody had taken

something from you.

Like they had taken

a Christmas present from you.

They took

your fucking horse, yeah?

And we beated

the hell out of it.

And you say...

(STUTTERS)

"I see his face

and I'm gonna kill him

one day."

And you did.

You did.

You ride him up

in that blind path...

and you took

that knife of yours

and you cut him

from end to end.

Yes, I did.

Those were good days.

(LAUGHING)

Yes, they were.

Those were...

Those were good days.

They were the best, Metz.

Morning, sir.

Corporal Molinor here.

The colonel

would like to see you.

-(DOOR OPENS)

-(CHATTER)

-(KNOCKING ON DOOR)

-BIGGS:
I'll get that.

-Yes?

-Captain Blocker's here, sir.

-Morning, Captain.

-Colonel.

You know Jeremiah Wilks here,

of Harper's Weekly.

Sit down, Joe.

I understand you finally

run that escaped Apache bunch
