Epilogue – based on the teleplay “A Grave for Cully Brown” by Albert Aley and story by Ed Lasko
(LINDA JAMES rides off from the Bar B J ranch yard.)
BRYAN JAMES: The way she came. I never thought she’d leave the same way.
JESS HARPER: Well, it’s better than the way Cully left.
BRYAN JAMES: Yeah. Sorry you gotta leave so soon. Like to get to know you better.
JESS HARPER: Same here. They’re gonna be wonderin’ what happened to me back home. Sides, I gotta backtrack and take that letter you gave me to the sheriff. Dad gum, I sure hope he can read.
BRYAN JAMES: Well, if you have any trouble, send him out to see me.
JESS HARPER: You bet I will.
BRYAN JAMES: I’ll, ah, send your money as soon as I get it from the government.
JESS HARPER: Ah.. now wait a minute, that ain’t your debt.
BRYAN JAMES: Mmm. You got some pay comin’. Cully won’t be able to spend his.
JESS HARPER: (Looks down at the ground) No, I reckon not. (Looks up) Alright. (Shakes BRYAN JAMES’ hand) Thank you.
BRYAN JAMES: Good luck.
(JESS HARPER mounts his horse, waves and rides out the B J Ranch gate.)
