Epilogue – based on “The Fugitives,” a teleplay by Donald S. Sanford and story by John C. Champion
(JESS HARPER and MYRA GREEVY are looking out the window of the Laramie sheriff’s office.)
JESS HARPER: They’ll stare at you, Myra and they’ll whisper when you walk by. But tomorrow they won’t take so much notice. One day soon they’ll forget.
MYRA GREEVY: I can wait. I’m free… for the first time in my life.
JESS HARPER: About Joel. I’m sorry.
MYRA GREEVY: Don’t say that, Jess. I think I always knew that Joel would die violently someday. I’m sorry about what we did to you.
(MYRA GREEVY and JESS HARPER move to the door.)
MYRA GREEVY: Bye, Jess.
(JESS HARPER opens the door for her and MYRA GREEVY leaves.)
JESS HARPER: (Closes the door and leans against it. Turns to open the door.) Well, I’ll see you later, Mort.
MORT CORY: Just a minute. We’ve got some unfinished business.
JESS HARPER: Oh, well now I can’t imagine what?
MORT CORY: You know blamed well what.
JESS HARPER: Well you’re sure all fired grouty. I can’t figure ya.
MORT CORY: Oh you can’t huh?
JESS HARPER: What’s the matter? That molar of yours actin’ up again?
MORT CORY: Well I’ll be juggered. I musta swallered it when you landed that haymaker on me.
JESS HARPER: (Laughs) Well, now it’s better than waiting for the dentist to come to town. Dad gum sight cheaper, too.
MORT CORY: Well, I guess sometimes the ends of justice can be served in strange ways.
JESS HARPER: (Doffing his hat) It would appear so, Sheriff.
JESS HARPER and MORT CORY: (Laugh)
MORT CORY: Jess Harper, you better get out of here while I’m still laughin’. ‘Cause if I stop and you’re still here, I’m just liable to jail you and throw away the keys.
JESS HARPER: Never let it be said that Jess Harper couldn’t take a hint. (Spins his hat and exits out the door) See ya, Mort.
