Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Paul Savage and story by Dan Ullman
(SLIM is sitting in the front room of the Sherman ranch house reading Robin Hood. JESS is behind him, getting ready to go to town.)
SLIM: You forgot to do the dishes.
JESS: No, I didn’t forget. I figured maybe you’d do ’em.
SLIM: Oh, I would Jess, but you know I’m still a little shakey. You know what the doc said. He said don’t overdo it.
JESS: Yeah. You sure been taking his advice, if I do say so.
SLIM: What do you think about the Willoughby’s offering to pay Simpson back the three hundred dollars.
JESS: Ah, right neighborly. Even more so, Mr. Simpson didn’t take it…(Walks to the front door) Well, don’t wait up for me..
SLIM: Hey! What are you doing all polished up?
JESS: There’s a big dance in town tonight. Don’t you worry buddy, you take it easy. I’ll do the dishes when I get back.
SLIM: Wait a minute! How come you didn’t tell me about the dance?
JESS: Well there’s no point in it, I mean you being so weak and shakey and all. Strenuous thing like dancing might kill you.
SLIM: You wait here.
JESS: Hey, who’s going to do the dishes?
SLIM: (Walks into his bedroom and begins to dress.) All right, I’ll do them when we get back.
