Epilogue – based on the teleplay “Vengeance” by Ray Buffum & Rod Peterson and story by Ray Buffum


(Stagecoach drives into the Sherman ranch yard. GLADYS MOORE, JESS HARPER, SLIM SHERMAN and DAISY COOPER are in the ranch house front room.)


DAISY COOPER: Well, we certainly wish you all the luck in the world when you get back home.


GLADYS MOORE: Thank you, Daisy. I never would have been able to do it if Jess here hadn’t insisted I take that reward money for the Morgan boys.


JESS HARPER: Well, if it hadn’a been for you they wouldn’t be in jail now. I’d likely be sitting on a cloud somewheres playing a harp.


SLIM SHERMAN: That’ll be the day.


DAISY COOPER: Gladys, I tell you if that hat your wearing is a sample of those you’re going to sell in your shop, it’ll be a tremendous success.


MIKE WILLIAMS: You mean she can get money for somethin’ like that?


DAISY COOPER: Mike! Take that bag out to the stage. You are much too young to have an opinion about women’s hats.


(MIKE WILLIAMS carries GLADYS MOORE’s suitcase out to the stagecoach.)


GLADYS MOORE: Oh, Jess, I don’t know…


JESS HARPER: Ack- Whoa now. (Shakes his finger at GLADYS MOORE) You thank me one more time, I’m goin’ to eat all the flowers off that thing you call a hat.


GLADYS MOORE: Well… (Kisses JESS HARPER lightly and pats him on the back before walking out the door to the stagecoach.)


SLIM SHERMAN: That was pretty close, pard. There for a minute I thought you were going to go into the ladies’ hat business.


JESS HARPER: Wait a minute, now. To know something about ladies’ hats, you have to understand women. That’s one thing I don’t think I ever will. (Pats SLIM SHERMAN on the left shoulder, causing SLIM SHERMAN to flinch.)
