Moments ATA.

Yes, I know them.

Bad guys those two cabron.....

See maybe they will come this way.


Sure I will take a look for you.

Well, how did you lose your ranch?

It's a damn conspiracy.

The bank loaned me money on cows and

God told it not to rain. I was ruined!

Slow down.

Yeah, what good money do?

That is yours.

I don't live in no damn tin can.


You'll make some good friends

here Mr Bovie, you'll see.

Now this is all you can afford.

I ain't going in.

Not me. No.

No, ma'am.

Oh, don't be timid.

Come on now. Let's go.

Get your damn hand off my Cadillac.

Jesus Christ!

Slow down, please slow down.

- I want some singin' and dancin'.

- Singing, dancing? What?

- And a woman. I want a woman.

- A woman?

You going with me, boy? You

going with me? Speak up!

- You going? Yes or no?

- Yeah... I'll go with you.

- Slow down. Slow down.

- Good.

Are we going to drink all this beer?

Whatever it is I reckon, yeah.


So this, this woman, well she

lives out here somewhere?

What woman?

I don't know about a damn woman.

You said you wanted a woman.

Yeah I do, I want a woman.

Singing and dancing.

Just where exactly are we going?

About 200 miles, this way.

In old Mexico.


No I can't go to Mexico.

Why not? You got tickets to

the opera night or something?

What are you doing down here anyway?

You pop in only to say howdy, did you?

Well, I thought you might need somebody

to help break wild horses or something.

I didn't know you lost your ranch.

Ahh, damn!

I didn't take you for a bronc buster!

You ride them, eh?

Yeah, I guess it's just in the blood.

Dad said you used to be a rodeo rider.

- Yeah.

- Bulls?
