From The Searchers:
237 EXT. THE JORGENSEN HOUSE – CLOSE SHOT – MOSE HARPER –
He is in a rocker on the porch. Suddenly he stares out and
stops rocking. Faint in the distance, but coming closer,
the clop-clop of two horses, moving at a walk. A moment
later Jorgensen emerges and comes to stand beside Mose,
shading his eyes and squinting against the sun, still
not recognizing the distant horsemen. He is joined by
Mrs. Jorgensen. And then Laurie comes out and she too
stares, frowning at first, then with dawning realization.
Lars and Mrs. Jorgensen also begin to guess…to suspect…
and then to know. And Laurie starts to run.
238 CLOSE SHOT – MOVING WITH LAURIE
The CAMERA MOVES ahead of her as she runs blindly over the
hard-packed ground, running as hard as she can toward the
still unseen but nearing horsemen.
239 FULL SHOT – THE GROUP
Ethan has Debbie on the pommel of his saddle, his arm
supporting her, and she is asleep. Martin is riding beside
them. Laurie comes running up to stare at Ethan and at
the girl. He smiles and puts a finger to his lips —
cautioning her against waking Debbie — and then he rides
- Laurie looks then at Martin. He doesn’t know whether
to smile or not; he just waits. And then she is beside
him and she steps onto his stirruped foot and vaults up
beside him, and she kisses him just as she had on the day
he left the graves to take up the search. And still holding
her beside him, he rides slowly after Ethan and Debbie
toward the house.
