I've come more than just miles on this trip, Marian. I'm trying to reach across some years too.
You're going to turn my head. I'm not used to so many pretty compliments.
Why not? What's wrong with the men of the West?
They're given to silences. Long ones. Like the winters.
Isn't it about time you tried an easier climate?

Every time I watch this episode, the ending gets me. There was chemistry on the screen with these two. Shane is very upset because he feels he's losing someone who he needs, and without a spoken word Marion is able to pick up on that. As the scene progresses, you can see that Marian has understood Shane, and that Shane understands her answer. I love the way this scene was done - much more powerful with no words spoken!!!
Also, at the very beginning, Shane asks Tom, "Is there someone coming up behind me?" To this point, there is no words spoken that Shane is courting Marian, though I suppose one could easily derive to that conclusion. And it's obvious that Shane isn't going to allow Marian's decision to move and marry to be easy. He insists on going with her to town when she's going to have dinner with Warren. And in time, a fight erupts.
I figured this story was written by a woman, and it was. Overall, a GREAT episode!
