Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Donn Mullally & Lee Erwin and story by John C. Champion
(A loud and rowdy CROWD in the saloon is enjoying TULLY’s largess.)
TULLY: Drink it up, dudes. I’m buying. Just name your drinks, boys. I’m payin’ for it.
JESS: (Reaches around and takes the whisky glass from Tully’s hand) Don’t mind if I do, Tully.
TULLY: (Motions for the two saloon hostesses next to him to leave) Shoo girls, shoo, git, git. Wha’d ya wanna come here for, Jess?
JESS: Now, wha’ do ya think – the money.
TULLY: Aw, Jess. I gave ya a chance when I coulda killed ya.
JESS: Yeah, and I coulda split your skull when I walked in here. And I been thinkin’ plenty about it the past five days walkin’ on that desert.
JESS: Tully, you reach for that gun; I’ll make you eat it.
TULLY: Oh, Jess.
JESS: Now shut up. How much money have you spent?
TULLY: ‘Bout two hundred dollars.
JESS: Wha’d you do with the rest of it?
TULLY: Hid it. Buried it.
JESS: Well, let’s walk over and talk to the sheriff and then we can dig it up.
TULLY: Aw, Jess. Already wore out a shovel diggin’ for it. You ain’t gonna beat me out of it, are ya?
JESS: That’s the way the world is, Tully. ‘Bout time you found it out,
TULLY: (Fingering his new duds) Well, nice while it lasted. (Drinks a last whiskey)
(JESS relieves TULLY of his revolver. TULLY and JESS leave.)
