Epilogue – based on the script by Sherman Vincent Harper

 

(Two heavily laden horses come down the road toward the Sherman ranch house. JONESY comes out of the barn.)

 

JONESY: Andy? Come here, Andy!

 

ANDY: (Runs out from the barn)

 

JONESY: What do I see there?

 

ANDY: That’s Slim and Jess!

 

JONESY: Slim and Jess? Well, what are they ridin’?

 

ANDY: The horses! Come on.

 

(ANDY and Jonesy run towards the approaching horses.)

 

SLIM: Hi, Andy, Jonesy.

 

JONESY: Hi

 

ANDY: Hi

 

JESS: Hi, fellas.

 

JONESY: Whad’ya got there?

 

SLIM: Groceries!

 

(SLIM and JESS gallop to the barn. JONESY and ANDY run after them.)

 

JONESY: D’ya sell the cattle for cash in advance? How’d ya do that?

 

SLIM: We didn’t. We’re not gonna sell ’em ’til the prices go up. And in the meantime, Jess and I made enough to keep us in food for a couple months.

 

ANDY: Well, how’d ya make so much, so fast?

 

JESS: Ah, it was easy. Get yourself shot at day and night. Get trapped in jail with the town council tryin’ to kill ya. Find a bunch a cattle trapped in a cave. Things like that.

 

SLIM: Hey, you forgot about the dynamitin’.

 

JESS: Oh yeah. Ya gotta almost get yourself blown to pieces. We had a lot a fun.

 

ANDY: Why do ya suppose they’re lyin’ ta us like that, Jonesy?

 

JONESY: Because they stole it, that’s why.

 

SLIM: You know, they’re much too decent to eat food bought with stolen money, Jess, I think you and I are goin’ to get nice and fat.

 

(JESS and SLIM throw the bags of groceries over their shoulders and walk to the ranch house. JONESY and ANDY look at each other and then run in after them.)
