Epilogue – based on “The Replacement,” a script by Richard Newman
(PAUL HALLECK gets up into the seat of a Conestoga wagon in the Sherman ranch yard. SHARON HALLECK and JESS HARPER are near the front kitchen door. SLIM SHERMAN and MORT CORY are standing near the Conestoga wagon.)
MORT CORY: Laramie can still use a good deputy.
PAUL HALLECK: Well, thanks, but I, I didn’t outfit this wagon for a thousand miles to settle for a shorter trip.
(JESS HARPER and SHARON HALLECK are walking behind the Conestoga wagon to the opposite side.)
SLIM SHERMAN: Hey, still got your heart set on going to Oregon, huh?
PAUL HALLECK: We both have.
JESS HARPER: Now you be sure to write when get there, huh?
SHARON HALLECK: That a promise. (Kisses JESS HARPER on the cheek and he helps her get up into the wagon)
PAUL HALLECK: Bye, Jess. Mort. Slim.
MORT CORY: So long.
SLIM SHERMAN: Have a nice trip. Bye.
(SHARON and PAUL HALLECK drive off.)
JESS HARPER: I was kinda hopin’ it’d work out like this.
MORT CORY: Yeah, me too.
SLIM SHERMAN: Well, Mort, ’bout hirin’ that new deputy. The folks in town seem to think they’ve got all the sheriff they want.
MORT CORY: Oh?
JESS HARPER: Yeah. They got a petition. (Gets a paper out of his pocket and unfolds it.) Signed by everybody in town that could write. Includin’ the mayor.
MORT CORY: (Reads the paper) Well there sure are a lot of names on here. I don’t know what to say. ‘Cept…
SLIM SHERMAN: Except what?
MORT CORY: Seems to me there’s a couple a names missing.
SLIM SHERMAN: Oh, you mean Jess and me. Well, we thought it’d be kinda funny…
MORT CORY: Never mind what you thought. Sign. (Hands JESS HARPER the paper and pen) Right here. (Taps his shoulder and offers it as a writing desk)
JESS HARPER: (Signs the paper)
MORT CORY: I may be replaced someday but it’s not gonna be by either one o’ you. (Laughs)
SLIM SHERMAN: (Signs the paper)
