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.

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.
