Epilogue – based on the teleplay by John Dunkel and story by John C. Champion
(SLIM, JESS, and ANDY come out of the Laramie Stage Depot. ANDY is dressed in a suit.)
SLIM: Well, she oughta be here pretty soon now.
ANDY: Hey, look!
(MCKEENVER’s MEN and CHARLIE CRAIG come around the corner.)
JESS: Well, they’re takin’ them back to jail to wait for the trial.
ANDY: I sure wish I could stay and see it.
SLIM: You’re going back to school.
ANDY: But Luke was my friend. Well wasn’t he. Jess?
JESS: Yeah, I guess he was, Andy. In the end, when it counted.
SLIM: Well, he was my friend too. He died trying to warn me.
ANDY: If only he’d known that Mort Cory had already told you about McKeever. That you brought a possee back with you.
SLIM: Well, maybe if I had done it differently. Brought ’em all straight in. –
JESS: Why did you come in alone, Slim?
SLIM: Well, I didn’t know about you two. I hoped I could get inside and find out before the shooting started.
JESS: Well, Maybe nobody coulda helped Luke. He had a lot to live down.
SLIM: Well, here’s the stage.
ANDY: Aw, Slim, Can’t I stay, please? Maybe just one more week for the trial. I’m studying government in school and I oughta stay to see how a court works. Aw, please Slim.
SLIM: Onto the stage, mister.
(ANDY gets into stagecoach)
SLIM: Now you’re going to become a smart man. Make something of yourself.
ANDY: But I don’t want to be smart. I want to be just like you and Jess.
(SLIM and JESS look at each other. and back at ANDY as the stagecoach leaves.)
