Audra Favor: I can’t imagine eating a dog and not thinking anything of it. John Russell: You even been hungry, lady? Not just ready for supper. Hungry enough so that your belly swells?

Audra Favor: I wouldn’t care how hungry I got. I know I wouldn’t eat one of those camp dogs.

John Russell: You’d eat it. You’d fight for the bones, too.

Audra Favor: Have you ever eaten a dog, Mr. Russell?

John Russell: Eaten one and lived like one.

Audra Favor: Dear me.
