The Way West (1955)

"I got my rifle and flint and steel. I'll pick up a horse somewheres."
" Damn it, Dick, I wish you wasn't that wayl A man can't just traipse on forever."
Dick took a minute answering, and when the words came they seemed to Evans not an answer but a fling at some thought Dick held in a far corner of his mind.

" Why don't you come with us, sure enough?"
" It ain't a thing for me, Lije."
