Epilogue – based upon the script by Paul Savage
(SLIM and JESS are on the trail and in their evening camp.)
SLIM: We’ll be home tomorrow.
JESS: Home, that’s a nice word.
SLIM: A little while ago you told me something you said to Mrs. DeWalt about belonging and now you’re mooning over the word “home.” (Smacks his lips) Well, I think the Big Open’s almost lost you for good.
JESS: Yeah, well I notice you still like to break away once in a while.
SLIM: Only often enough to know it’s still out there.
JESS: Don’t try to josh me. You’ve never completely lost that itch any more than I have, or will.
SLIM: Well, maybe that’s true. But for Andy, I can’t scratch that itch as often as you can.
JESS: It’s not too hard to get you on the trail, Slim.
SLIM: Now that’s true. Just you with one foot in trouble and the other in a barrel of axle grease.
JESS: (Indignantly) That ain’t so!
