Capt. Sam Collingwood (Character)
from Fort Apache (1948)
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: Assuming you found Cochise, would he listen to you? Would he believe you?
Captain Yorke: Cochise knows me, sir. I've never lied to him. And if you can assure him decent treatment for his people...
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: I'll confess he interests me. These eastern newspapers... I hadn't realized Cochise was so well known.
Captain Collingwood: Oh, he's known. He's had the laugh on every troop in the southwest, these three years. Six campaigns... out-generaled us, out-fought us, out-run us.
Captain Yorke: That's just the point, sir. There aren't enough troops in the whole territory to MAKE Cochise come back. But, one man - a man he trusts - might persuade him.
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: Carbine against his spine might be more persuasive.
Captain Yorke: Well, I'll go in unarmed, sir. I can't fight my way in. Either walk in or...
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: [to himself] The man who brought Cochise back...
[to Capt. Yorke]
Lt. Col. Owen Thursday: I'm for it, Captain. How many men will you need?
