- How are you, boy?

- Just great.

- Who's this?

- It's Wes.

- I'm Pat Jennings' boy.

- Jennings.

- Remember Hoss?

- Yeah, don't tell me.

- This is what's-his-name, uh... Barry.

- Barry.

Ned Barry's boy, yeah.

Say, last time I saw this fellow,

he was just about so high.

We heard you got killed in a gunfight

out in California, remember?

I used to work for this boy's daddy

as a ranch hand.

How nice.

What are you boys doing?

Devilmenting around?

We're kind of riding around.

I used to ride the old bag line myself... off the old hospitality

of the South as it were.

Well, you had your breakfast?

- No, we ain't ate yet.

- Fine.

Honey, you better lay out a little more

food and cups and saucers and all.

We're gonna have

some guests for breakfast.

Just turn around and step over there...

...while the little lady gets out of the water,

right over there.

The first of you

bindlestiffs that looks around...'ll get the meat end of this rifle

right between the eyeballs.

- All right, you can get out now, honey.

- Get out?

If you stay in there,

you're gonna catch cold.

You want them to stay

and have breakfast with us?

- Well, these are my friends.

- Oh...!

Sir, we really gotta be going.

No fooling, we're late now.

Where are we going?

Listen, ma'am. Uh...

I'm awful sorry we, uh, discommode you.

I hope you won't hold no, uh,

you know, grievance against old Cim.

I tell you, when I was a little buster,

no bigger than a rabbit...

...I used to follow Cim around

everywhere he went.

He spit on a stump, I spit on a stump.

And all I ever wanted was

just to grow up and be like him.

And so if I've done anything at all, anything

to come between you and him, uh...

All right. All right.

- Skimmeroot.
