Arrowhead (1953)
[Bannon admonishes an Indian woman for drinking whiskey]
Ed Bannon: It's against the law for an Indian to drink.
Nita: I drink in Spanish.

Sandy MacKinnon: Which way are you going back to the post?
Colonel Weybright: The way every detail goes back.
Ed Bannon: Pick another way, Colonel.
Colonel Weybright: These Apaches were here for peace. Do you see any paint on their faces?
Ed Bannon: They don't have to have paint on their faces, but they can't fight without paint. They got to have it on them somewhere.

Ed Bannon: Pick another way back to the post anyway, Colonel
Colonel Weybright: We're at peace.
Ed Bannon: It's a good way to stay alive while you're at peace.

[questioning Captain North's strategy]
Ed Bannon: You're as blind as the Colonel, if that's possible... and it's possible.

Ed Bannon: Apaches don't like horses, Sergeant. They ride 'em until they drop, kill 'em and eat 'em and then steal some more.

Ed Bannon: Chattez, you were always the wise one. There is a new thinking in the beat of your drums... a new dance. I want to be told what they mean.
Chief Chattez: So that we may more easily killed?

Johnny Gunther: Toriano is more than my friend. We played together when we were young. Look at this.
[shows scar on wrist]
Johnny Gunther: We made ourselves blood brothers.
Ed Bannon: There's just one way an Apache can put an end to that relationship. He kills ya!

Sandy: I think they're swinging too wide for a circle, Ed. Maybe they're not using a pattern at all.
Ed Bannon: Apaches always use a pattern for their campaigns. I've seen 'em fight in a circle covering hundreds of miles or in an X as big as the whole territory. Even a zigzag pattern. We got to be sure which one they're using now.

Captain Bill North: What is it?
Ed Bannon: Prophecy.
Captain Bill North: Prophecy?
Ed Bannon: They never talk it. It was always written - carved on a tree, painted on a rock. The Invisible One would appear and lead them to victory over the White Eyes. It would be one of their people. He'd come from the East.
Captain Bill North: That fits Toriano
Ed Bannon: That's why he went back East to school... so he could make it fit.

Ed Bannon: The Apaches have a saying - think what you want to think. You have to live with your thoughts.

Captain Bill North: Give me your attention. This command is going after Toriano. Now, on my responsibility, we'll take our orders from Mr. Bannon.
Ed Bannon: I'll make it short. There's only one way to beat the Apache - fight the way he fights... hit and run until he can't run anymore.


Apache (1954)
Al Sieber: You want us to kill you, don't you Massai, right out here in front of all your blood-thirsty brethren, so they can sing your praises around the campfire and start another war in your honor. It would be a sweet death, wouldn't it, Massai? A warrior's death. But you're not a warrior any more. You're just a whipped Indian... and nobody sings about handcuffs.

[first lines]
Lt. Col. Beck: Do you think he means it this time?
Al Sieber: We'll see.

Al Sieber: I knew Geronimo and Cochise when they were that buck's age. That's another one of the same breed. A real bronco Apache.

Al Sieber: It looks like he called the war off.
Lt. Col. Beck: Then why are you looking so glum about?
Al Sieber: I'm getting old, I guess. This is the only war we had. And we ain't likely to find another.


Geronimo: An American Legend (1993)
Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts: There's two dead women there... and two little kids. They scalped them all, all four of 'em. Bounty hunters. The government down here pays 200 pesos a head for men, 100 for women and 50 for those kids. They kill any Indian and then claim they are Apache. I don't see how any man can sink so low. Must be Texans... the lowest form of white man there is.

Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts: I just think you're a real sad case. You don't love who you're fighting for, and you don't hate who you're fighting against.
1st Lt. Charles B. Gatewood: Perhaps I could learn to hate with the proper vigor from you, Al.

Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts: I'm going to go on down to Tucson and I'm going to get drunk!
