I am not a native English speaker. So I have some problems about strange dialogues. What does Fitzgerald mean in this line in The Revenant?

Fitzgerald: If we keep it, we can lay it up around hours peak.

Another Man: Quit acting like you know what you're talking about, Fitzgerald.

Did Fitzgerald want to say that "they will hide upon peak mountain"?

  • Do you have a timestamp we can use to have a quick listen?

    Also please turn on closed captions when watching this movie, there are many other dialogs where you'll get lost (and there's the natives dialogues too)

1 Answer 1


The actual quote is

We keep it, we can lay it up around Arrow's Peak.

Arrow's Peak is a place.

They are talking about the idea of leaving the boat behind and moving inland.

"Lay it up" refers to pulling the boat out of the water and protecting it against the elements or discovery for later use.
