Doc and Crane are stumped for a logical argument, so he tries another tack. He offers them a life without hunting the buffalo or wandering the prairie. "You can depend on your country to take care of you!" Many Horses narrows his eyes at him and says calmly, "You are not my country." Doc grits his teeth. He can't understand why these people won't submit to living on a reservation. Who could resist the prospect of unending submission and dependence? Nonetheless, Many Horses declines the offer. Doc, fed up, pushes away from the table. He notices Tracker examining the train a short distance away, curiously touching the rim of a wheel. The wheels in Doc's brain start turning.
At the church, Joseph and Ruth sing a hymn to an audience of Cheyenne visitors. Some of the visitors pick up the Bibles and give them confused looks. A young woman in the front pew wears a white man's hat with a feather tied around the crown. After the hymn, she asks in her native language about Jesus Christ. Joseph answers her, then translates for us: "I told her that Jesus Christ is our savior and born of a virgin." Ruth gives him a proud smile. The young woman in the hat says something that makes her fellow visitors laugh. Joseph doesn't quite suppress a smile and translates: "She says she would like to hear Mary explain the virgin birth to her husband." Now the white parishioners in the back of the audience join in the laughter. Ruth looks a wee bit scandalized.
Outside, Cullen keeps the peace, mostly by standing around and looking foreboding. Toole and some of his cronies loiter around nearby, guns at the ready. Lily walks up to him with a smile. He greets her with a polite "ma'am," a doffing of his hat and the spitting of a loogie off to one side. "What are you doing here?" she asks. "I guess I made a stupid promise to somebody," he says. He's surprised to see her, having figured she wouldn't want to see any Indians, but she says these are the peaceful kind. Cullen scoffs at that and spits some more. Bleh. Looking suddenly teary-eyed, Lily says that she'll be leaving town soon. Cullen appears unmoved by her decision, which seems to peeve Lily a bit. She gathers up her skirts to walk away, but then she spies that Cheyenne woman in the hat. At first Lily looks sad, then she looks really pissed. She storms over to the woman. "Where did you get that? That's mine!" She moves to snatch the hat off the woman's head, but Cullen hauls her bodily out of the church. Lily struggles and demands he let go of her. "It was your husband's hat, wasn't it?" he asks. Lily fumes in silence. Joseph comes over. "You lied to me," Lily says. "It was your people!" She stomps off, leaving Joseph looking ashamed and worried.
