Marian Starrett:
Isn't there anything I can say that'll change things?
Joe Starrett:
Can't you see, honey, maybe this is the chance. Morgan and them boys went home
Marian Starrett:
You don't really believe that. That's not the reason.
Joe Starrett:
It's just too much for me to give up, this place and the valley. All the things that will be.
[Marian makes Joey leave]

Marian Starrett:
It's just pride, that's all, a silly kind of pride! Don't I mean anything to you, Joe? Doesn't Joey?
Joe Starrett:
Marion... Honey, it's because you mean so much to me that I've GOT to go. Do you think I could go on living with you and you thinking that I showed yella. Then, what about Joey? How do you think I'd ever explain that to him?
Marian Starrett:
Oh Joe, Joe...
Joe Starrett:
I've been thinkin' a lot and I know I'm kinda slow sometimes, Marion, but I see things. And I know that if... if anything happened to me that you'd be took care of, took care of better than I could do it myself. I never thought I'd live to hear myself say that, but I guess now's a pretty good time to lay things bare.
Marian Starrett:
It's as though I'd be glad for you to go.
Joe Starrett:
Honey, you're the most honest and the finest girl that ever lived and I couldn't do what I gotta do if I hadn't always knowed that I could trust ya.
[puts on his gun holster]

Joe Starrett:
Now don't you go countin' me out. I wouldn't have lived as long as I have already if I wasn't pretty tough.

No!
Isn't there anything I can say to change things?
Maybe this is a chance.
Morgan and them boys went home.
You don't really believe that, that's not the reason.
It's just too much for me to give up, this place and our valley.
- All the things that will be. - Will be.
JOEY: Bang!
Bang, bang, bang!
Joey, don't point that thing! Go play outside.
Play outside, Joey!
Please, dear. Go outside and play.
It's just pride, that's all, a silly kind of a pride.
Don't I mean anything to you, Joe? Doesn't Joey?
Marian.
Honey, it's because you mean so much to me that I've got to go.
Could I go on living with you, and you thinking I'd showed yellow?
And what about Joey? How would I explain that to him?
Oh, Joe.
Joe.
I've been thinking a lot, and...
...I know I'm kind of slow sometimes, but I see things.
And I know if anything happened to me that you'd be took care of.
You'd be took care of, better than I could do it myself.
I never thought I'd live to hear myself say that, but...
...I guess now's a pretty good time to lay things bare.
You talk as though I'd be glad for you to go.
Honey, you're the most honest and the finest girl that ever lived.
I couldn't do what I gotta do if I hadn't always known I could trust you.
Now, don't you go counting me out.
I wouldn't have lived this long if I wasn't pretty tough.
Pa, Shane's got his gun on. He's coming.
Gun?
- What's the idea? - Don't let him go. Don't anybody go.
- This is my kind of game. - But it ain't yours.
Maybe you're a match for Ryker, maybe not, but you're no match for Wilson.
Then, I'll outlast him. But I do appreciate it, Shane.
You're both out of your senses. This isn't worth a life.
Are you fighting for this shack, this ground and nothing but work?
I'm sick of it, I'm sick of trouble. Let's move, let's go on, please.
Marian, don't say that. You love this place more than me.
- Not anymore. - Even if it's true, it changes nothing.
There must be some way, Shane? Some way?
