Adam: What do you call her?

Milly: I was thinking of some name like Hannah or Hagar or Hephzibah, picking up where your mother left off.

Adam: Hannah.

Milly: Hannah.

Adam: I got to thinking up at the cabin, about the baby. How I'd feel if someone came creeping in and carried her off. I'd string him up the nearest tree. I'd shoot him down as I would a thieving fox.

Milly: Good morning my brothers. If you're looking for your outside clothes they're hanging up drying on the line. I came in before and got them. I couldn't get your inside clothes so I'll take them now.

Benjamin Pontipee: Our underwear?

Milly: You're winter underwear that you're sleeping in. You might as well hand it over because you're not gonna get your clothes or food or nothing til you get all cleaned up and shaved.

Benjamin Pontipee: Where's Adam? We wanna talk to Adam.

Milly: He's out plowing, he had his breakfast over a half an hour ago. I got hot muffins waiting, crisp bacon, steak, fryer potatoes, fresh ground coffee. Now do I get that winter underwear or do I have to come in there and take it off of you?

Benjamin Pontipee: Don't listen to her. She wouldn't dare.

Milly: Oh wouldn't I?
