The Farmer:
Boys, it was hell on wheels. The worst idea in the world to go west.
Jake Rumsey:
Oh, come on now.
The Farmer:
No, I ain't lying to you, son. We tried farming the first year and a twister wiped us out. Next year it was the cattlemen, then just pure-D rotten soil. There ain't nobody got no money excepting a few. And even if you do have, there ain't a thing worth having. It rains so much it will give you the chilblains. A dry spell comes along and you choke to death on dust. That is if a bushwhacker don't come along and take your last damn dollar. No, I mean it boys, turn around and go back!

Transcript:
Boys, it's hell on wheels.
The worst damned idea in
the world is to go west.
Oh, come on, now.
We tried farming the first year.
Twister wiped us out.
The next year, it was the cattlemen.
Then just pure rotten soil.
There ain't nobody got
no money except a few,
and there ain't a damn
thing worth having.
Rains so damn much, it will
give you the chill blains.
Dry spell come along, and you
choke to death on the dust.
That is, if a bushwhacker
don't come along
and take your
last damn dollar.
No, I mean it, boys. Turn
around and go on back. Amen!
Farming is always the roughest go.
That ain't our line.
You probably struck out
too late in your years.
Now, we're boys in our prime.
We take it as it comes.
You know, seeing as you boys
ain't going to hit a
town for quite a while,
you must be getting kind of itchy
here on the trail, you get me?
What do you mean?
Now you take min here,
she's a gal and a half.
She's not exactly virgin territory
if you know what I mean.
I'll tell you what I'll do.
I'll make a bargain with you boys seeing
as you're playing it close to the vest.
Ten dollars for the lot. What you say?
It's your last chance to get poontang.
You make that $8,
you're on, honey.
Zeb?
Well, you boys drive a mighty
hard bargain. But $8 it is.
Oh, you can cut that down a bit, Jake.
I ain't interested.
What?
Well, I just...
Well, nothing to get riled about.
I just ain't interested.
You dumb shit. You're
turning this down?
Yeah, I am.
God almighty. He's saving it
for his wedding day, I'll bet.
