Wind River (2017)
Chip: Man, I get so mad. I wanna fight the whole world. You got any idea what that feels like?
Cory Lambert: I do. But I decided to fight the feeling instead, 'cause I figured the world would win.
Cory Lambert: I'd like to tell you it gets easier. it doesn't. If there's any... comfort, it's... getting used to the pain, I suppose. Went to a grief seminar in Casper. Did you know that? I don't know why. Just wanted the bad to go away. Wanted answers... to questions that couldn't be answered. The counselor come up to me after the seminar and sat down next to me. And he said something that stuck with me. I don't know if it's what he said, or how he said it. He says, "I got some good news, and I got some bad news. Bad news is you're never gonna be the same. You're never gonna be whole, not ever again. You lost your daughter. Nothing's ever going to replace that. Now the good news is, as soon as you accept that, and you let yourself suffer... you allow yourself to visit her in your mind, and you'll remember all the love she gave you, all the joy she knew." Point is, Martin, you can't steer from the pain. If you do, you'll rob yourself... You'll rob yourself of every memory of her. Every last one. From her first step to her last smile. Kill 'em all. Just take the pain, Martin. You hear me? You take it. It's the only way you'll keep her with you.
Cory Lambert: Wolves don't kill unlucky deer. They kill the weak ones. You fought for your life, Jane. And now you get to walk away with it.
Jane Banner: Shouldn't we wait for back up?
Ben: This isn't the land of waiting for back up. This is the land of you're on your own.
Cory Lambert: You don't catch wolves looking where they might be, you look where they've been.
Martin: Why is it that whenever you people try to help us, you always insult us first, huh?
Cory Lambert: Just take the pain, Martin. You hear me? You take it.
Alice Crowheart: Thermals can make underwear wedge up your bottom.
[sees Jane is wearing a thong]
Alice Crowheart: I guess yours are already there.
Martin: You're driving this Fed around so she don't get lost, is that it?
Cory Lambert: It's what they asked me to do, not what I'm doin'.
Martin: Then what are you doing?
Cory Lambert: I'm a hunter, Martin. What do you think I'm doin'?
Martin: If you find out who did this... I don't care who it is. You understand me?
Cory Lambert: [nods] Right where they stand.
Martin: Then get off my porch and go do it.
Jane Banner: How far do you think someone can run barefoot out here?
Cory Lambert: Oh, I don't know. How to gauge someone's will to live? Especially in these conditions. But I knew that girl. She was a fighter. So no matter how far you think she ran... I can guarantee you she ran farther.
Chip: [on his sister] You said "was". What do you mean by "was"?
Chip: What do you mean by "was"? What do you mean by "was"?
Casey: [on his sister's friend] Did she die like Emily?
Cory Lambert: She died from the cold.
Casey: So just like Emily then.
Martin: I was ready to quit... then the phone rang... which is never good... but today it was.
Natalie: [narrating] There is a meadow in my perfect world. Where wind dances the branches of the tree, casting leopards spots of light across the face of pond. The tree stands tall, and grand, and alone, shading the world beneath it.
Natalie: [girl running frantically] It's here, in the cradle of all I hold dear.
Natalie: I guard every memory of you. And when I find myself frozen in the mud of the real... far from your loving eyes, I will return to this place, close mine, and take solace in the simple perfection of knowing you.
