Epilogue – based on the the script “Wolf Cub” by Ron Bishop & Wells Root
(SLIM SHERMAN, RED WOLF, LAME WOLF, CAPTAIN FOSTER, CAPTAIN REEVES, JESS HARPER, MIKE WILLIAMS, and DAISY COOPER are in the Sherman ranch house front room.)
SLIM SHERMAN: By this paper, the father in Washington agrees with Chief Red Wolf’s request that mountain land be found for his people, in return for the services of yourself and the bravest warriors as scouts.
RED WOLF: It is good.
JESS COOPER: Not quite, Chief. Needs your mark.
RED WOLF: Mark? I have already given my word. Why do they need my mark?
CAPTAIN FOSTER: Washington’s strong on paper and marks.
RED WOLF: (Signs paper) It is done.
CAPTAIN REEVES: Chief Scout, on behalf of the government of the United States, congratulations… to both of you. Well, we’ll be riding now. Goodbye, Sherman. Harper. Madam. Goodbye, son.
(SLIM SHERMAN shakes RED WOLF’s hand.)
LAME WOLF: (Walks over to address JESS HARPER) Word is not heart, but if heart have word.
RED WOLF: We have words, my son, “Blackfoot phrase”
(JESS HARPER shakes LAME WOLF’s hand.)
RED WOLF: Come, we ride.
(CAVALRY and SCOUTS ride out of the Sherman ranch yard.)
MIKE WILLIAMS: What is “Blackfoot phrase”
JESS HARPER: That’s Blackfoot, Mike. It means “the hatred has flown.”
