Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Milton Geiger & Rod Peterson and story by John C. Champion
(SANDY is waiting on the buckboard as SLIM and TOM KINGSLEY come out of the barn.)
SLIM: Thanks, Doc. The mare nev’a woulda pulled through without your help.
TOM KINGSLEY: Don’t think I would of made it either, without my new helper.
(JESS rides in and dismounts behind the buckboard.)
JESS: Sandy, Doc. How’s the mare, Slim?
SLIM: Just fine. Thanks to the doc here.
JESS: Hey, the sheriff tells me you got some reward money coming, Doc.
(TOM KINGSLEY and SANDY look at each other.)
SLIM: Say, you can enlarge that zoo of yours.
TOM KINGSLEY: If there’s any money coming back to me, I’m going to use it to go back to medical school.
SANDY: Tom’s going to include people in his practice. And I’m going to help him.
JESS: You gonna work for him?
TOM KINGSLEY: You might say that. Only I’m going to marry her first so I won’t have to pay wages.
(SLIM and Jess look at each other.)
TOM KINGSLEY: You’re invited to the wedding. Giddup.
(TOM KINGSLEY and SANDY drive off. SLIM and JESS wave goodbye.)
JESS: So long.
SLIM: So long, Doc, Sandy. (Turns to JESS) Well, they’ll make a good pair.
JESS: Sure they will. After what they’ve been through together even married life will seem easy. Hey, what about Lady? Wha’d she foal?
SLIM: Come on, take a look.
(SLIM and JESS walk to the barn and look into the stall. LADY and her FOAL are in the stall.)
SLIM: Isn’t she a beauty?
JESS: Sure is.
SLIM: Named her after you.
JESS: After me. How?
SLIM: Called her Jessie.
(JESS cuffs SLIM on the arm.)
