Sheenyana: [Sheenyana is looking at a far away mountain through Richard's high-tech binoculars.] means 'Sees Far.' Now I have seen farther than any of my people. Does that make me a god?
Lt. Richard O'Conner: Only if your dagger makes you a god over an animal that you skin. It's a tool, Sheenyana. Nothing more.
Sheenyana: [disturbed, Sheenyana turns and draws her dagger, staring at it.] My dagger does make me god over animal I skin. Why are you here?
