Epilogue – based on the script by David Lang


(JESS and SLIM are patching the barn roof at the Sherman ranch.)


JESS: Dad gum! We shoulda had Gandy do this when he was working for us.


SLIM: Yeah. I can think of fifty things I’d have him do. Think there’s a chance of puttin’ him back on?


JESS: Well, I don’t know. If he and Amy get things straighten out in Granite City, they promised they’d come by and see us.


SLIM: D’ya think there’s a chance of him serving more time?


JESS: Aw, I don’t think so. Slim The law was so glad to get what was left of the Wellman gang I think Gandy and Amy will be put on probation. Man, it’s hot. It’s nice up at the lake about now.


SLIM: I was thinkin’ the same thing.


JESS: Yeah.


SLIM: Oh, we could finish this later. Tomorrow, huh!


JESS: What are we waiting for?


(SLIM and JESS start to get up, only to see the ladder disappear.)


SLIM: Hey, what’s going on?


DAISY: Mike and I need the ladder, Slim. Let us know when you’re all finished and we’ll put it back up.


MIKE: Wasn’t my idea, Slim.


SLIM: Yeah, we’ll get it done, Daisy.


DAISY: You’ll be glad when the rains come.


MIKE: What are we going to do with the ladder?


DAISY: I wouldn’t worry about that, Mike. I’ve been trying to get the boys to patch this barn roof for two months. They won’t be much longer. Then we’ll put it back up and you can all go swimming.


MIKE: Hey, Slim! Hurry up. Then we can all go swimming!


JESS: Who wants to go swimming at midnight.


(SLIM and JESS reluctantly go back to work on the roof.)
