Lt. Col. Owen Thursday (Character)
from Fort Apache (1948)
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: We here have little chance for glory or advancement. While some of our brother officers are leading their well-publicized campaigns against the great Indian nations - the Sioux and the Cheyenne - we are asked to ward off the gnat stings and flea bites of a few cowardly 'digger Indians'.
Captain Yorke: Your pardon, Colonel. You'd hardly call Apaches 'digger Indians', sir.
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: You'd scarcely compare them with the Sioux, Captain.
Captain Yorke: No, I don't. The Sioux once raided into Apache territory. Old-timers told me you could follow their line of retreat by the bones of their dead.
