Hernandez - Peasant who challenges 'president' Zapata: They have to be led.

Fernando: Where are you going?

Emiliano Zapata: I'm going home.

Fernando: So you're throwing it away! Leave tonight and your enemies will be here tomorrow in this room at that desk. They won't walk away. They'll hunt you down till you get your rest in the sun with the flies at your face. Leave now I promise you you won't live long.

Emiliano Zapata: I won't live long anyway.

Fernando: Zapata, in the name of all we fought for, don't go!

Emiliano Zapata: In the name of all we fought for, I'm going.

Fernando: I won't go with you.

Emiliano Zapata: I don't expect you to. Now I know you. No field... no home... no wife... no woman... no friends... no love. You only destroy... that is your love, and I will tell you what you will do now. You will go to Obregon or Caranza, and you will never change.
