Epilogue – based on the teleplay “Drifter’s Gold” by Rod Peterson and story by Norman Jacob
SLIM SHERMAN: (Drives the buckboard up to the Sherman ranch house late that night.) “Whoa” (SLIM SHERMAN is obviously exhausted. Enters ranch house. Hangs up his hat and knocks JESS HARPER’s hat off the peg. Puts JESS HARPER’s hat back on the rack. Undoes his gunbelt. JESS HARPER comes out of the kitchen, in an apron and mad as a wet hen.)
JESS HARPER: What happened to you? Did ya get lost? Oh, ya been fightin’ again, huh?
SLIM SHERMAN: Ah, now wait a minute.
JESS HARPER: That was the longest trip into town for supplies I ever heard of. What town’d you go to? San Francisco?
SLIM SHERMAN: Now, hold on. (Hangs gunbelt on chair and sits down at the table.) Now, what’s eatin’ ya?
JESS HARPER: I’ll tell ya’ what’s eating me. Every time you take off, this place falls apart. You should a’ been here today. That onery palamino of Andy’s busted up the corral ag’in. I no sooner get it fixed than the crazy urones bust into the garden and started rootin’ it up. Then a chicken hawk comes by and takes off with our good layin’ hen. Top it all off, I get the dough mixed for the bread and there ain’t no yeast ’cause you’re not back with the supplies yet. What’d ya do? Spend the whole day in the saloon?
SLIM SHERMAN: Yeah Jess, I spent the whole day in the saloon.
JESS HARPER: That’s what I figured. Man, if I was to do somethin’ like that you’d fire me seven ways from Sunday. (Walks towards the kitchen.)
SLIM SHERMAN: Yeah, I expect I would.
JESS HARPER: (Turns back to look at Slim) Well, you don’t have to be so dad gummed agreeable about it do ya? Ya whip ‘im?
SLIM SHERMAN: (Laughs) Yeah. (Shakes his head in wonderment and then scratches it)
