Epilogue – based on the teleplay “Trapped” by Rod Peterson and story by Joyce Perry
(MIKE WILLIAMS is next to a stream. He gets a bucket of water from the stream and places a string of fish in it. He then carries the bucket over to the buckboard. DAISY COOPER is sitting on the seat of the buckboard. )
SLIM SHERMAN: Let me help you, Tiger. (Takes the bucket from MIKE WILLIAMS) Up you go. (Lifts MIKE WILLIAMS into the buckboard. MIKE WILLIAMS sits down on the seat next to DAISY COOPER. Hands the bucket to JESS HARPER, who places it at MIKE WILLIAMS’ feet)
SLIM SHERMAN: Well, that wasn’t a bad fishin’ trip after all.
JESS HARPER: (Hoists the string of fish to look at them.) Yeah, we did pretty good.
MIKE WILLIAMS: ‘Specially with Aunt Daisy along to cook for us.
DAISY COOPER: When Jess couldn’t find the doctor, I thought I was comin’ out to take care of a sick girl, not to be the camp cook.
SLIM SHERMAN: (Laughs)
JESS HARPER: Well you did real good on both counts, Daisy. In fact, Mr. Richards thinks you did more for his daughter than the doc did.
DAISY COOPER: Oh, I wouldn’t say that. But wasn’t he nice to us while we stayed at his ranch?
SLIM SHERMAN: I never saw such a change in a man. Why with him stickin’ up for Tad, got a good chance a gettin’ a light sentence.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Why can’t we stay out here another day.
SLIM SHERMAN: Then another, then another.
JESS HARPER: Pretty soon it’ll be a whole week.
MIKE WILLIAMS: Sure, why not?
DAISY COOPER: Well, I can think of several good reasons why not, young man.
MIKE WILLIAMS: You can? Name one.
DAISY COOPER: Well, Slim and Jess have to get back to the ranch. Catch up on all that work that’s waiting.
(JESS HARPER and SLIM SHERMAN look despondent and mount their horses.)
DAISY COOPER: They’re due for a roundup. There are fences to be mended and the stageline wants more horses.
MIKE WILLIAMS: That all?
DAISY COOPER: Well no, Mike. School starts again day after tomorrow.
(MIKE WILIAMS looks down despondently. DAISY COOPER chortles as they all head for home.)
