Epilogue – based on the teleplay by Albert Aley & John C. Champion and story by John C. Champion
(SLIM is playing “Red River Valley” on the harmonica. JESS is repairing his holster. DAISY is mixing a batter and MIKE is drinking water. MIKE walks over to DAISY and tries to filch some batter.)
DAISY: Your homework. Now!
MIKE: (Walks over to the table) Slim, tell me some more about the wedding.
SLIM :Well, there’s nothin’ else to tell, Mike.
MIKE: With all that fightin’ there musta been somethin’ ya left out.
SLIM: (Looks over at JESS) Come to think of it, there was one thing I forgot to tell ya.
JESS: Sure there was. ‘Bout how you hid under the bed when all the shootin’ started.
SLIM: Na, it was after that. At the weddin’ ceremony, Marilee and I got to talking about Jess.
JESS: About me? I thought you were the one she was trying to hitch up with.
SLIM: Not any more, pard. After what I told her about you, you’re the number one choice.
JESS: I am? Well, I don’t even know her.
SLIM: Doesn’t make any difference. Matter of fact, she’s ridin’ out here tomorrow. Wouldn’t surprise me none if she didn’t bring that preacher wi’ her. (Performs a run on the harmonica)
JESS: (Jumps up from his chair and heads for the kitchen.) Daisy, is he telling the truth?
MIKE: (Speaking quietly to SLIM) You’re just stringing him along, aren’t ya?
SLIM: Yeah, but don’t you tell him that, huh? (Begins playing the “Red River Valley” again.)
