Epilogue – based on the script by MIlton Geiger
(DEBORAH FURNAM leaves the Sherman ranch house, followed by SLIM, and walks to where ANDY is waiting by the stagecoach.)
DEBORAH FURNAM: (Turns back to SLIM) You were right, Slim. The West does have a lot of beauty in it… and some nice people. I’m glad I saw your ranch. And I’ve enjoyed meeting you, Andy, very much.
ANDY: Thank you. Same here.
DEBORAH FURNAM: (Looks from ANDY to SLIM and back to ANDY) You’ve a lot to be proud of.
SLIM – If you felt like stayin’ around, there’s a lot of fine country here. Most of it worth seein’.
DEBORAH FURNAM- No, it’s time I was going home. I’ve had enough travelling to last me a long time.
SLIM : Yes, I guess you have. Take care of yourself, Deborah.
DEBORAH FURNAM: Thank you. Maybe that fortune teller will predict a change of luck for me.
SLIM : I hope so.
(DEBORAH FURNAM enters the stagecoach. SLIM shuts the door and the stagecoach leaves. SLIM, ANDY, and DEBORAH FURNAM wave goodbye.)
ANDY: Hey, Slim, How do fortune tellers tell fortunes?
SLIM: Oh, a lot of different ways, Andy. Cards, tea leaves…they read your palms sometimes. Let me see yours. (SLIM looks at ANDY’s palm.)
ANDY: You gonna make a prediction?
SLIM: Yep! I predict that, ah, you better wash your hands if you want any supper.
(ANDY jabs SLIM in the ribs and runs to the water pump.)
