In Reply to: IMHO: The worst line in the film posted by Lynne Cohen on October 29, 1997 at 08:27:27:
: 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.
loved this question! I picked up on that myself but I agree with Rich. Hawkeye was nothing but direct and to the point! I always imagine that when he was telling Cora about her father's death he said, "well, first Magua shot your father and the horse fell on him trapping him, perhaps breaking his leg and causing him untold agony, then, while he was still alive Magua vowed to whipe your fathers seed from the earth, then Magua took his knife and ripped your father's beating heart from his body..." No wonder Cora said, "Say nothing to Alice"!
