Robert Taylor Quotes:

Lance Poole: Every Shoshoni boy has to go through that. It's a test. Before a boy turns into a man, the tribe wants to know if he measures up.
Mrs. Masters: Well, what does he have to do?
Lance Poole: He's given a knife, nothing else. No food, no water. He has to go up into the mountains above the snow line... and bring back the talons of an eagle. He has three days to do it in. He has to be back on the third day before the sun goes down.
Orrie Masters: Isn't it rather cruel?
Lance Poole: It depends on your point of view. You see, Shoshoni are a small tribe. Every man counts. Suppose one day that boy had to fight for his people. Wouldn't it be a good idea if they knew they could depend upon him?


John 'Johnny' Eager: Oh, now don't turn ordinary on me. I get tired of ordinary dames. And I don't want to get tired of you.


Elizabeth: Your head!
Rigby: Yeah, it got caught in a broken promise.
