Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Dick Nelson and story by John C. Champion


(JESS is sitting in a chair with his feet up on a low table on the Sherman ranch house porch, sipping lemonade. SLIM brings out an upholstered chair, followed by MIKE and DAISY.)


JESS: Ya’ know, Slim, I can’t figure out why you didn’t get all this work done before I got home.


SLIM: Well, it seems like we wasted a lot of time looking for someone who was lost.


JESS: Is that a fact?


DAISY: Would you like a pillow?


(JESS shakes his head negatively. DAISY puts her hand on Jess’ shoulder.)


DAISY: Let me pour you some more lemonade.


JESS: (Pats DAISY’s hand) No thank you, Daisy, I’m fine.


DAISY: (Sympathetically) Oh.


MIKE: Can we have some yet?


DAISY: Pretty quick, as soon as we get the cleaning done. Oh, the dust got into everything.


SLIM: Sure glad to hear you’re feeling better, pard. Maybe you ‘d like to help us knock some of this dust out of the furniture.


JESS: Ah, I don’t know Slim. You know, my side’s still pretty sore. I don’t know what got into Daisy anyway. The furniture looks fine to me.


SLIM: Oh, is that right?


JESS: Sure, women are too durn particular.


SLIM: What you’re try’n to say is, ah, dust doesn’t bother you, huh?


JESS: Not a bit.


SLIM: Well that’s good, pard. Let’s go, Mike.


(SLIM and MIKE begin beating the furniture right next to JESS. Dust envelopes JESS.)


JESS: Aw, come, aw, what’re you doin’? (Quickly gets out of the chair and leaves)


(DAISY comes up behind SLIM and MIKE, laughing.)
