: Hi Guys,
: As much as I love the LOTM there is one line that drives me crazy ever time I hear it. I just wonder why they put that line in the script. Its the line where DDL is telling Cora to stay alive under the waterfall and then he says "if they don't kill you, they will take you north to Huron land" etc.. I just wonder why he had to say "if they don't kill you" to her. Come on! The poor woman was incredibly frightened, her boyfriend was about to leap through the falls and leave her, and she didn't have a clue whether this was the end or not.
Response from Georgette:
That line did always make me cringe, too, and I agree that Cora didn't need to hear that (since she must have been terrified enough without the reminder that she could be dead shortly), but I admit that after I thought about it, it seemed like a natural thing to say. DDL was really upset himself about having to leave Cora, and I just think he was thinking out loud, albeit a little thoughtlessly. It really would be fine with me if that line was left out, I wouldn't miss it at all.
