Epilogue – based on “The Betrayers,” a teleplay by Albert Aley and story by John C. Champion
(DAISY COOPER and JESS HARPER drive into the Sherman ranch yard in a buckboard, with JESS HARPER’s HORSE tied to the back. JESS HARPER lifts DAISY COOPER out of the wagon and places her on the ground.)
MIKE WILLIAMS: Aunt Daisy, Jess, where ya been?
DAISY COOPER: Oh, it’s a long story, dear.
JESS HARPER: You bet! As far as I’m concerned, it ain’t worth telling.
SLIM SHERMAN: (Exits the kitchen door in an apron, wiping his hands on a towel.) Well, it better be after what I’ve been through.
DAISY COOPER: (Laughs) Slim!
JESS HARPER: (Wolf whistle) What are you doin’ all got up?
SLIM SHERMAN: Oh, nothing besides cooking, washing dishes, cleaning the house, and baking a pie that just burned up. Not to say anything about doing your chores. I sure hope you had a good vacation.
JESS HARPER: Vacation?
MIKE WILLIAMS: Slim, don’t forget about that telegram that came for Jess just now.
SLIM SHERMAN: Oh, yeah. (Reaches into his shirt pocket and hands the telegram to JESS HARPER)
JESS HARPER: (Opens telegram)
DAISY COOPER: Slim, you’ll never believe what happened to us.
SLIM SHERMAN: Well maybe not Daisy, but will you try me.
JESS HARPER: Hey Daisy, listen. It’s from Lottie.
DAISY COOPER: OH?
JESS HARPER: (Reading ) “Kett given special hearing before Judge. Recovery of gold and testimony against Thatcher in his favor. Will be put on probation with me as jailer. Love Lottie.”
DAISY COOPER: That’s wonderful.
SLIM SHERMAN: Will somebody please tell me what’s goin’ on?
JESS HARPER: Well sure pard, it’s like this, see. Just walking along minding my own business…
(SLIM SHERMAN pushes JESS HARPER from behind and JESS HARPER stumbles through the kitchen door.)
