Capt. Thomas Archer: Have you ever seen a Cheyenne?
Deborah Wright: Of course I have.
Capt. Thomas Archer: No you haven't! All you've ever seen is reservation Indians looking pitiful as fish out of water. But give them a chance and they're the greatest fighters in the world. Will you listen to me? It takes a blue coat to make a white man a soldier... but a Cheyenne is a soldier from the first slap on his butt. War is his life. He's fierce, he's smart... and he's meaner than sin.
Capt. Thomas Archer: Dull Knife! Little Wolf! What happened today changes nothing. The Indian Bureau is still pledged to provide you with adequate clothing and rations. And you're still pledged to abide by the law. Remember that.
Little Wolf: We are asked to remember much. The white man remembers nothing.
Col. Tad Lawson: One thing about Americans, we're not cut out to be occupiers. We're new at it and not very good at it.
August 'Augie' Poole: But dear, we can't keep living on your grandmother's money... it's not that I'm too honorable, but it's running out.
