Epilogue – based on the script by Arthur Orloff
(ANDY SHERMAN is walking around the front room of the ranch house, wearing JESS HARPER’s gunfighter pistol. JONESY is sitting in the rocker, reading the paper.)
JONESY: Andy how many times you gotta be told not to play with that thing.
ANDY SHERMAN: I’m not playing. I’m practicing.
JONESY: Slim thought you were big enough to have a gun, he’da got you one.
ANDY SHERMAN: (puts away JESS HARPER’s gunfighter gun in the hidden box on the fireplace.) Jonesy, I think Jess’d want me to have that gun.
JONESY: Andy, I’m a lot bigger than you are. Well, not much. But I’m a lot older by a long sight and I never handle a gun unless it is absolutely necessary.
ANDY SHERMAN: Well I might have to sometime… and if I do I want to be able to use it. (JESS opens the front door.)
JESS HARPER: Hi
ANDY SHERMAN: Well, Jess. (Runs to JESS HARPER and clasps him by both arms.)
JESS HARPER: Andy, boy am I glad to see you. You too, Jonesy.
JONESY: Well I’m not glad to see you.
(MARSHAL walks in behind Jess.)
JONESY: Well hi, Marshall. I’m glad you got the culprit… Your’re supposed to be dead.
MARSHAL: I’m no ghost, Jonesy.
JONESY: If this whole thing’s a joke, so help me I.
JESS HARPER: It’s no joke, Jonesy. I shot the marshall alright, but I shot him with a blank cartridge.
MARSHAL: Jess went off on a secret mission for the government. We had to make it look like he was a wanted killer. Ah, I had a little sack full of chicken blood in my shirt. Looked pretty good, didn’t it.
ANDY SHERMAN: What kind of secret mission?
JESS HARPER: I’ll tell you ’bout it later. It’s a long story.
JONESY: But you didn’t have to hit Slim.
JESS HARPER: Yeah, I know I hit him kinda hard. But I had to. He was in on it.
JONESY: In on it! Well, wait til I see… I don’t know who I’m maddest at, but I think it’s you (pointing at the MARSHAL).
MARSHAL: We had to keep it a secret. We couldn’t take any chances.
JONESY: (Looking at MARSHAL) I’ll have you know that I cried my eyes out at your funeral. (Grabs JESS HARPER’s arms.) Hi, boy.
