The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976) Poster

Will Sampson: Ten Bears



  • Ten Bears : These things you say we will have, we already have.

    Josey Wales : That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.

    Ten Bears : It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.

  • Josie Wales : You be Ten Bears?

    Ten Bears : I am Ten Bears.

    Josie Wales : I'm Josey Wales.

    Ten Bears : I have heard. You are the grey rider. You would not make peace with the Bluecoats. You may go in peace.

    Josie Wales : I reckon not. I got no place else to go.

    Ten Bears : Then you will die.

    Josie Wales : I came here to die with you. Or to live with you.

  • Ten Bears : Then you will die.

    Josey Wales : I came here to die with you. Or live with you. Dying ain't hard for men like you and me. It's living that's hard when all you've ever cared about has been butchered or raped.
