Epilogue – based on the script “Three Rode West” by Jerry Adelman


(The Sherman burro is eating grass by the Sherman Rranch Relay Station sign. JESS HARPER walks out the ranch house door. SLIM SHERMAN rides up to the ranch house hitching rail with a box in a bag.)


JESS HARPER: Welcome home, stranger.


SLIM SHERMAN: Thanks. (Dismounts)


JESS HARPER: I see ya brought back the bacon.




JESS HARPER: I read you got most.of the whole ten thousand back, Slim. It’s a lot of money.


SLIM SHERMAN: (Looks down at box) Yeah Jess, I don’t know if it was worth it or not. Cost the lives of two good people.


JESS HARPER: Yeah, I know. I read about your friend, Adams. You said two people. Who was the other?


SLIM SHERMAN: It was a girl.




SLIM SHERMAN: Yeah, she worked in a saloon in Rockland City.


JESS HARPER: Somebody special?


SLIM SHERMAN: (Nods his head affirmatively) Yeah.


JESS HARPER: Hey, I-I cut some fishing poles while you were gone. You wanna try ’em out? You can bring that money o’ yours along. We’ll use it for bait.


SLIM SHERMAN: Ya think those fish’ll wait till after supper?


JESS HARPER: You’re not going to tell me you’re that tired.


SLIM SHERMAN: No. Guess I’m just getting old.


(JESS HARPER and SLIM SHERMAN smile and go in the ranch house.)
