Epilogue – based on the script by Buckley Angell
(JESS HARPER is putting logs on the fire in the fireplace in the front room of the Sherman ranch house.)
MIKE WILLIAMS: Jess, you told me ten times what Commancheros are, but I just can’t seem to get it right.
JESS HARPER: (Stands and strokes Mike’s hair) Well, I wouldn’t worry about it, Tiger, ’cause there aren’t any of ’em around here.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Well if there were any, how would I recognize ’em?
JESS HARPER: Well, let’s see. The men, uh, they wear a funny kinda clothes that they steal any place they can get. The women, they wear moccasins on their feet, just like Indians do.
DAISY COOPER: Come on, you two. Supper’s ready.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Suppose Aunt Daisy’s a Commanchero? She wears moccasins.
DAISY COOPER: Oh! Why shouldn’t I? (Pulls up skirt to look at moccasins) They’re the most comfortable house shoes I’ve ever had on my feet. What’s wrong with that?
JESS HARPER: Nothin’ Daisy. Nothin’ at all.
