Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Paul Savage and story by Dan Ullman
(SLIM is sitting in a chair on the porch of the Sherman ranch house, shelling peas.)
JESS: Well, now, mighty domestic.
SLIM: Get along just fine without your wisecracks.
JESS: If you’re not careful somebody’s going to up and marry you.
DAISY: (Opens ranch house door) Slim,would you hang… (Sees JESS) Oh, Jess, you’re just in time. Will you hang these up for me?
JESS: Oh, Daisy, I got…
DAISY: If you want any dinner, you’ll have to help. I’ve been housecleaning. Way behind today.
SLIM: (Laughs) You were saying.
JESS: (Throws a peapod at Slim)Very funny. (Takes wash and walks off into the ranch yard.)
(SLIM throws a peapod at JESS. MIKE and TOMMY BARTLETT come around the corner of the ranch house.)
MIKE: … and he got Benson and all of them. All by himself, with a little help from Mr. Blayne. You said he was a sissy cat, you’ll see. Slim, where’s Jess?
SLIM: Right over there.
(MIKE and his friend walk in the direction Slim points. SLIM jumps up to follow them. JESS is hanging long underwear on the clothesline.)
MIKE: Jess, this here’s Tommy Bartlett. Will you show him how ya…
(DAISY opens the kitchen door. JESS turns with clothes pins in his mouth. He ducks between the long underwear so that he is hidden from MIKE, TOMMY BARTLETT, DAISY, and SLIM and continues to hang up the clothes. The boys look at each other with disgust. SLIM and DAISY laughs. MIKE smiles. JESS glowers.)
