Molly, your books.
- Oh my!
Put them in the trunk.
- I'll study on the train.
Why on earth did you choose
a teaching job in Wyoming?
Mother, you know
I hope you let them know who you are!
They're not getting just anybody.
- Goodbye, Oarling.
God bless you.
If it's dreadful, send me a telegram.
I'll send you money to come home.
It's going to be fine, I know it is.
Goodbye, Oarling. - Goodbye, Molly.
Goodbye, Jane. Take care of Mother.
Cheer up, Sam. You look like it's
a funeral. - It is, practically.
Molly, won't you change your mind?
- Oon't go over it all again, Sam.
- Oon't you care for me at all?
Of course! More than any other man.
But it's not enough.
I don't want to settle in Bennington
forever. I couldn't stand it!
like all the others.
If I came back in 10 years,
I'd find the same people,
saying and thinking the same things,
wound up like old grandfather clocks.
No, Samuel. I'd be miserable,
Please don't be unhappy. - My family's
counting on my marrying you.
Say you found out I'm touched
in the head. - They won't believe that.
My family does. Goodbye, Samuel!
- Goodbye, Molly. I'll write you.
They don't care out here.
All they ask a teacher is,
can she count up to 100.
We'll be in Medicine Bow
in a few minutes.
Your luggage will be on the platform.
- Thank you.
We ain't in yet! Some cow outfit's
bringing in a herd.
Oon't just stand around!
Get those cows out of there!
Why doesn't somebody shoo them off?
They'd trample you to bits.
"I left my darling girl behind,
She said her heart was only mine. "
saw a train. They're just curious.
Now they've seen it, so get them
off of there! - Yes, Sir.
Just as soon as
I want to get to Medicine Bow and
get some sleep. - You won't get much.
I'm paying my boys tonight.
They tend to keep the town awake.
Get them cattle off the tracks, or
I'll scare them off with my whistle!
I wouldn't do that, Sir.
We haven't lost a steer all the way.
If you stampede them now,
Steve! - That's right.
Is my whistle that rusty?
Only your outfit
Same old Steve.
Been 3 years, hasn't it? - Yeah.
- You know me. I quit.
Like when we rode together.
Some girl's papa ran you out of town.
Not this time. I'm getting old.
I want to see New York before I die.
I don't how, but I saved it.
Get off them tracks! I'm warning you!
I haven't seen my friend in 3 years.
Ain't you got no humanity?
Northern Pacific's gettin' feverish.
Give me a hand, will ya? - Sure.
- No, it was exciting.
Especially how that man handled them.
- The Virginian?
Oh, he's from Virginia?
I'm from Kansas, myself.
I see you're from the East.
- How can you tell?
By your fancy luggage.
You wouldn't be getting off here?
I would, if we ever get in.
- Just my luck. I'm heading east.
Are you visiting? - I've come to work.
You won't have to do anything menial
like that. - I'm the new teacher.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
