Quotes from

Jim Deakins: Sure is big country. The only thing bigger is the sky.

Zeb Calloway: I remember once there being a trapper named Parker. He run smack into a big grizzly bear. The bear sure made a mess out of Parker before we killed it. Ripped one of his ears clear off. But this child just happened to have a needle and some of this deer sinew, just like we got here. Yeah, while his ear was still hot, I picked it up and sewed it back on his head. And it growed most as good as ever.
[and a little later]
Zeb Calloway: I said growed most as good as ever. Not hardly. It seems I sewed Parker's ear on backwards. Yeah, he hated me until the day he died, on account of every time he heared a rattlesnake, he'd turn the wrong direction and step smack into it!

Zeb Calloway: Keep you eyes open. If you see anything, shoot. Don't bother to aim because you probably couldn't hit nothing no how.
