Quotes from

Col. Frank Marston: [after being saved from the bear trap by Jed] She wouldn't let you do it, would she?
Jed Cooper: You're lucky, that's all.
Col. Frank Marston: Luck had nothing to do with it. I know my wife pretty well. She's a fine person.
Jed Cooper: Fine people can make mistakes too.


[a band of heretofore friendly Indians have just taken the trappers' rifles and furs]
Jed Cooper: We never fished nor killed any more than we could eat. And we're not Blue Coats. Why are they taking it out on us?
Gus: Civilization.
Jed Cooper: Civilization?
Gus: Civilization is creepin' up on us, lads. The Blue Coats aren't satisfied with gobblin' up all the lands east of the 'Sippi. No, they won't stop till they've pushed us over the Rockies and into the Pacific Ocean. It's a drownin' fate that awaits us all. These are calamitous times, Jed, calamitous times.


Corinna Marston: I married a man - not a uniform.
