Epilogue – based on the script “Day of Vengeance” by Edward J. Lasko
(ERNIE POLK drives a buckboard into the Sherman ranch yard.)
ERNIE POLK: Hi, boys.
JESS HARPER: Well hi, Ernie.
SLIM SHERMAN: Hi, Ernie.
ERNIE POLK: I didn’t want to leave the territory without saying goodbye and thanks.
JESS HARPER: Where ya headed?
ERNIE POLK: I don’t know where I’ll stop. Wherever I can do something useful, I guess. I’ve lost the right to the title of “Reverend.” I know that. But I was wrong when I said I had lost the right to serve God. Nobody can ever do that. I can still serve Him and I will, wherever I can.
JESS HARPER: Well best of luck, Ernie.
ERNIE POLK: Thanks.
SLIM SHERMAN: From me, too.
ERNIE POLK: Take care of yourselves, boys. So long.
(ERNIE POLK drives off. SLIM SHERMAN and JESS HARPER wave goodbye.)
