Cheyenne Bodie: That's it. Look at each other. Take a good long look. What do you see? A devil with horns? A rattlesnake ready to strike? I'll tell you what I see. Two tired old men so full of hate they've forgotten how to live without it. So bitter that they're not only willing to destroy each other but their people as well. Where's it supposed to end? When there's nobody left? Is that your solution? Well, if it is I'm ashamed of you. Ashamed that I called either of you father.
