SLIM: Understand you’re leavin’.
FRAN ERICKSON: Tomorrow. Can you ever forgive me?
SLIM: We did that the night you got hurt.
FRAN ERICKSON: Well, I’m afraid I had that coming. I hear Smudge is going back to work next week.
JESS: Yeah, mean and onery as ever.
FRAN ERICKSON: (Laughs)
SLIM: Garth and his missus thank you for the check. It will help out a lot.
FRAN ERICKSON: Only trouble is… I owe a lot more than I can pay.
SLIM: Everyone carries mistakes. Fran. You just learn to live with them.
(A buggy, driven by LON MATHEWS, comes up in front of the group. LON MATHEWS steps down from the buggy.)
LON MATHEWS: All ready, Fran?
FRAN ERICKSON: Yes. Thanks for everything, boys. Goodbye and good luck.
(LON MATHEWS helps FRAN ERICKSON into the buggy. SLIM and JESS watch with a quizzical look on their faces.)
LON MATHEWS: Like I keep telling you, boys, stay loose.
