Ginger: Come closer... it's a secret.
[smiles through canine teeth]
Ginger: [whispers] they're coming.
Ginger: [after Hunter whistles at them] Did he just whistle at us?
Brigitte: I'm sure he meant the dog.
Brigitte: The day of reckoning - the day the curse grew stronger in the Red and the Black. Sisters united in blood, together forever.
The Hunter: I saw myself die. I'd give my life to save you, so that you can kill her.
Wallace Rowlands: Geoffrey bit her, didn't he? She's turning.
Wallace Rowlands: Then it's too late.
Brigitte: Is it too late for your son? I'll tell them about Geoffrey, I swear it. They kill my sister, they kill your son.
Ginger: A bond that would not be broken. Above men, above God, above fate. Together forever.
Ginger: [Ginger and Brigitte enter the fort] Welcome to civilization.
Ginger: I've come for my sister.
James: I'm sorry to tell you, but the Reverend has taken a real fancy to saving her from Hellfire. So I guess that leaves me and you, more or less, to ourselves.
[he smacks her in the face]
Ginger: [wipes the blood off her mouth] Right then.
Ginger: [after being hit by James] You hit like a girl!
James: Well, we've got all night to fix that.
Reverend Gilbert: You've let a pair of little girls destroy us! You never could see how they lied, and tricked, and tempted you into oblivion! Just like that bitch wife of yours!
Wallace Rowlands: Forgive me father
[stabs Reverend Gilbert]
Wallace Rowlands: for I have sinned.
Claude: When we were boys in France, my grandfather told my brother and I if we look out for it, man transform into wolf. On the full moon it preyed on the shepherds and travelers near his village. The old man warned us, "Beware its bite, or we might become a slave to the full moon, too." It gave me bad dreams. But my brother said, "Don't worry, Claude. If it bites you, you won't become one. Because I will help you catch it, so you can kill it before you turn, and the spell will be broken."
[Brigitte walks in]
Claude: It was a long time ago, and we were just little boys.
[he walks out of the room]
Claude: [the girls walk in for dinner] We should eat here more often.
Seamus: [to Ginger about Reverend Gilbert] Scripture has twisted that man deadly. And you... you watch it. He's fixing on you.
Ginger: [looks at the red dress] Hmm, what a lovely shade of dead.
Brigitte: Is a dead boy's room the only one they've got?
Ginger: It's better than sleeping out in the woods with a tree root for a pillow.
Brigitte: We've slept there before.
Ginger: Together forever?
Brigitte: Together forever.
Claude: I'm sure I'm going to hell for this, but shut your holy fucking mouth.
Brigitte: The Indians say the curse began in the time of the Ancients and was passed down through the blood of generations. There are legends of the Wendigo and the coming of the Red and the Black. Legends of the Day of Reckoning, when Death would consume the land, and good would face evil; of the day the curse would be broken forever - or grow stronger, and live on to plague generations to come. But ours was a story of survival; of two sisters bound by blood. A bond that would not be broken. That was our promise above all: above men, above God, above Fate. It was in our blood: together forever.
[as the film opens, Brigitte and Ginger are riding on horseback through a frozen wasteland]
Brigitte: I'm so cold.
Ginger: Me too.
Brigitte: Ginger, I think we've lost our way.
Ginger: We haven't lost anything, Brigitte. It's lost us.
Ginger: [after Brigitte is wounded and Hunter leads them to the fort, and they find it to be all wintry dirt and a few soldiers with muskets, Ginger murmurs to Brigitte:] Welcome to civilization.
Doc Murphy: [to Brigitte] You feel bad? Be thankful. It means you're alive.
Ginger: What is everyone so afraid of?
Doc Murphy: Didn't you see them, out there in the woods?
Ginger: We saw nothing.
Doc Murphy: Not to worry, girl. Because they saw you.
Reverend Gilbert: This plague has come because of your love of your savage wife! It is your sin that has brought the Devil upon us!
Wallace Rowlands: My sin is something you can only dream about!
The Hunter: It is believed amongst our people that those who lived, always live. Do not fear death.
Brigitte: And what if I don't? What if I don't kill her?
The Hunter: She dies by your hands, or you die by hers. And the land suffers forever, as foretold.
Brigitte: I just want my sister back!
The Hunter: [the Hunter stops leading and turns back to face her, angry, to talk about the dreams they had under the influence of a tincture mixed by The Elder] You saw this knife! I know you saw it!
Brigitte: [whispers] I killed Ginger with it.
The Hunter: This is the only way. You have no choice. It is your path. Do not fear death.
[He turns and leads the way again]
The Hunter: We'll go to the fort and wait for her. She will come for you there.
[the priest comes in to lecture Brigitte, who has her hands tied behind her back, and who will not look at him, at first]
Reverend Gilbert: In this mortal life, it is not just our physical bodies which hang in the balance. It is an eternity of peace. And it is this forgiveness which I offer you. Take it, child, for the lost soul of your sister, take it.
Brigitte: [whispering tremulously, then rising triumphantly] I have seen things, in dreams and in waking, about the way things will be for her and I. And in these dreams, Reverend, you are screaming for your life, you prick!
Reverend Gilbert: Good Christian women need fear nothing.
Ginger: We're not afraid.
Reverend Gilbert: Oh yes you are. Two months, this Fort has been in the devil's grip, and you two little girls walk right through our door.
Brigitte: [hears wolf howling] What is that?
Reverend Gilbert: Demons. The Devil's wickedness.
[he walks menacingly towards them]
Reverend Gilbert: This place is to be drowned, like a newborn deformity. To be cut out, like a bleeding cancer. To be cast into hell like a stinking whore!
[they run away from him and hide in their rooms, locking the door behind them]
Reverend Gilbert: Don't forget to say your prayers, ladies.
