Epilogue – based on the teleplay “Siege at Jubilee” by Rod Peterson & story by John C. Champion


(The stagecoash is in the Sherman ranch yard and SLIM SHERMAN is changing the team. JESS HAPRER ad DAISY COOPER are walking from the stagecoach to the ranch house. MIKE WILLIAMS runs from the barn to DAISY COOPER and JESS HARPERDAISY COOPER hugs MIKE WILLIAMS.)


MIKE WILLIAMS: Boy, I thought you’d never get back.


DAISY COOPER: I had that feeling once or twice myself, too. Then I thought how much you’d miss us. So we dropped everything and came right home. …And it is home.


SLIM SHERMAN: Daisy. Jess. (Shakes JESS HARPER’s hand)




SLIM SHERMAN: That tooth must have had awful long roots.


JESS HARPER: Yeah, it sure did. Clean down to my boots.


SLIM SHERMAN: Yeah, sure. What happened, Miss Daisy? Did he get lost in some saloon?


DAISY SHERMAN: As a matter of fact, we both did. (Winks at JESS HARPER)


(JESS HARPER and DAISY COOPER both turn towards the ranch house and go in with MIKE WILLIAMS.  SLIM  SHERMAN follows them.)
