: [to Ada
] If you could see my inside, or whatever you want to name it; my spirit, that's what I fear. I think I'm ruined. They kept trying to put me in the ground but I wasn't ready. But if I had... if I had goodness, I lost it. If I had anything tender in me, I shot it dead! How could I write to you after what I'd done? What I'd seen?
: You are all that keeps me from sliding into some dark place. Ada
: But how did I keep you? We barely knew each other. A few moments. Inman
: A thousand moments. They're like a bag of tiny diamonds glittering in a black heart. Don't matter if they're real or things I made up. The shape of your neck, that's real. You were always carrying a tray. Ada
: You wouldn't come inside. Inman
: I wouldn't come inside. Ada
: I had to carry a tray to come out and see you. Inman
: The way you felt when I pulled you to me. That kiss- which I kissed again everyday of my walking. Ada
: Everyday of my waiting...
: I ain't getting shot again for some cause I don't believe in.
: But I'm a deserter. If they find me here things could get bad for you. Maddy
: What are they gonna do? Cut short me young life?
: She's the place I'm heading. But I hardly know her. I just can't seem to get back to her.
: Ada, I wanna marry you. If you'll have me. Ada
: Isn't there some religion where you just say I marry you, three times, and then you're man and wife? Inman
: I marry you, I marry you, I marry you.
: Why is that funny? Ada
: No, I think it's I divorce you three times and then you're not married anymore.
: I can wait for ya. Ada
: Oh, Inman, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you, I marry you.
[Ada and Inman kiss
: I have so... I have so many buttons, is that alright? Will you turn your back?
[Inman turns his back but then he turns back around
: Nope. No, I will not.
: This doesn't come out right. If it were enough to stand, without the words. Ada
: It is, it is. Inman
: Look at the sky now. What color is it? Or the way a hawk flies. Or you wake up and your ribs are bruised thinking so hard on somebody. What do you call that?
: Come out of there. Bosie
: No, sir. Here's fine. Inman
: I'll just have to shoot the horse from under you. Bosie
: Shoot her. She's not mine. You riding Mr. Teague's animal? Inman
: I am. Bosie
: He dead? Inman
: I hope so. Look, how old are you? Give me your gun and ride home, I'm done fighting. I'm sick of it. Bosie
: I give you my gun and you'll shoot me dead. Inman
: I will not shoot you, but nor am I walking down that mountain looking over my shoulder for you. Bosie
: That's what you call a conundrum. I tell you what I've got on my side. Inman
: What have you got on your side? Bosie
: The confidence of youth.
: Oh God of my God! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Junior
: What's up? Veasey
: The Israelites! The tribes of Israel are about to flee from the banks of Egypt! Hallelujah! Inman
: He's got a shit coming on. It's overdue.
: I imagine God is weary of being called down on both sides of an argument.
: I came back for you.
: I'm wetter than a fish.
: Hello, I'm Ada Monroe. Inman
: I'm Inman. Ada
: Inman? Inman
: W.P. Inman. Ada
: [repeats it
] W.P. Inman. Inman
: Repeating a thing doesn't improve it.
: [in bed with Sara
] Thing is, I love someone. I love someone very much.
: Did you get a picture made? Inman
: Say again? Ada
: A tintype, with your gun and courage on display. Inman
: You're laughing at me. Ada
: I don't know you. Inman
: You're always carrying a tray.
[Veasey finds a saw
: Hey! Look at this! This is a good saw. Inman
: It's not yours. You take it, you make us another enemy. You are a Christian- don't you know your commandments? Veasey
: You'll find the good Lord very flexible on the subject of property. We could do a lot with this saw...
: [to Veasey
] I should have shot you when I had the chance. Veasey
: Please yourself. I'm just being a Christian.
: I've had to put myself in the way of people's kindness.
: I'm alone here, as you can see, with my baby. I need to believe you mean no harm.
[Inman takes out his gun
: No, I mean to give it to you. Sara
: I don't want it. If I had my way they'd take metal altogether out of this world. Every blade, every gun.
: Move away from the baby! Bardolph
: Don't shoot. Inman
: Take off your boots. Take off your pants and your shirt.
[Bardolph takes off his boots, pants, and shirt
: Don't shoot me, please. We're starving. We haven't eaten. Inman
: You'd better get running before you catch your death of cold. Bardolph
: Thanks, thank you. I will.
[Bardolph starts to run, and then Sara shoots him
: Have you been shot? Inman
: Not lately.
: Gettin' better, soldier? Inman
: Seems that way. Blind Man
: I wouldn't hurry. The war's almost done.Don't need your help to lose it.
: Been meanin' to ask you, where'd you take your wound? Blind Man
: Oh, before I was born. Never set eyes on a thing in this world. Not a tree, a gun, or a woman. Put my hand on all three, though.
