Aunt Sally Tyler: Can that be Lloyd that Becky is carrying?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: Hello, Mother! How do you do, Aunt Sally Tyler?
Aunt Sally Tyler: How do you do, dear?
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Where have you been?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: I've been to see my grandfather, and I threw mud on him.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: You threw mud on him?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: Yes, because he poked me with a stick. Then I got mad and he got mad, and we hollered at each other.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh baby, how could you disgrace Mother by going over there looking like a dirty little beggar?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: I didn't beg him for anything.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: You've been a very naughty girl, and you're going to be punished. Becky, take her inside. Give her a bath and put her to bed.
Becky Porter: Yes'm.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, I'm terribly upset. I wouldn't for worlds have him think I encouraged her in going there.

Aunt Sally Tyler: There are some things to be considered besides your pride, Elizabeth. There's the child herself, you know. You ought to think of her interests.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: I don't care. I don't want anything from him!
Aunt Sally Tyler: I know, dear, but just the same I say you ought to think of Lloyd. If I were you, I'd let her go over there as often as she pleases. And who knows? It might end in your all making up some day.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Never! Not after the terrible things he said about Jack!

Jeremy Higgins, Union-Pacific representative: Do you have the deed here?
Jack Sherman: It's at my bank.
Jeremy Higgins, Union-Pacific representative: Well, you bring it here, and I'll have a check for you. That's the way the Union-Pacific does business!
Jack Sherman: This is more cure than all the medicine. I'm well again!
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh no, you're not! You just stay right here.
Jack Sherman: The best part of it is, we won't have to ask your father for anything, and he can't laugh at me for being a failure! Darling, you go to the bank. I'll give you a note to take to Mr. Jennings. You bring back all the papers I left there. The deed is with them.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, it's almost too good to be true!

Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Tell me, dear, what happened?
Jack Sherman: Swazey and Hull were thieves. The land they sold me was worthless. We're ruined. We haven't a penny.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Jack, is all our money gone?
Jack Sherman: All of it. When I found out I got swindled, I almost went crazy. And on top of it, I got this fever.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Hush, dear. Don't think of that now. You must be quiet.
Jack Sherman: Poor Elizabeth. You made a sorry bargain when you gave up your beautiful home to marry me.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: I'd do it again.

Jack Sherman: I want to thank you, Bob, for everything.
Col. Gray: It's been a great pleasure having you and your family with us, even for so short a time. Quite different from Philadelphia, isn't it?
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Yes, indeed. We lived there for six years, but I never got used to the dreadful noise of the horse cars.
Col. Gray: Jack told me that you'd sold your house there.
Jack Sherman: We sold everything, lock, stock, and barrel. Took Greely's advice to go west, and here we are to find our fortune. I'm depending on your help for that.
Swazey: Oh, there's plenty there for the finding, if we're lucky.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: I do wish we didn't have to go back home to Lloydsboro.
Jack Sherman: Now, dear, we've settled all that.
Col. Gray: This wild country is no place for women and children, and where Jack's going it's even rougher. Besides, Jack told me you have a lovely home waiting for you.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, that sounds too grand. It's really just a cottage my mother left me.

[first lines]
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: [singing] Oh the days are gone when beauty bright my heart's chain wove, / When my dream of life from morn 'till night was love still love. / New hope may bloom and days may come of milder, calmer beam, / But there's nothing half so sweet in life as love's young dream. / Oh there's nothing half so sweet in life as love's young dream.
