murder of a police officer.

Sorry about your batch,

but that's what you get.

You pull a gun on me again,

I'll shove it up

that hillbilly ass.

Oh. Ah.

What, you've never seen

a lawman before?

Ah, forgive me.

It's okay.

Lady cops are used to it.

And no no,

I'm not a lesbian.

Neither am I.

My name's Jack Wade.

Nice name.

I'm Kate Edison.

You... you a cop or something?

Yeah, or something.

It's a constable really, so...

What does a constable do, Kate?

Well, it's sort of like

being a cop, actually.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up.

Mr. Wade, do you mind if I just turn

around, go back a few hundred yards,

drive back up

and start all over again?

No, that won't be necessary,

Constable Kate.

Okay, then we

start over now, Jack.

Yeah yeah.

I'm sorry if I was rude earlier.

My wife and I have just got here

and we've had

a pretty rough couple of days.

Well, let me welcome you

to Dry Wells, Nevada,

home to the stylish

and contemporary outhouse.

Yeah, it's ridiculous, isn't it?

No comment.

Here's my phone number.

L... I don't have a cell phone.

I mean, if you guys

ever need anything, just call me.

My place is a couple miles

up the 41.

Kate? You there?

Looks like we got us

another poacher up by Ruby Lake.

On my way.

- Top of the morning.

- Ah!

- Do I know you?

- Not yet, Jack.

Word gets around.


Hope you decide to stay a spell.

Trust me,

this place can grow on ya.

I doubt it.

You miss the city...

the noise, the people.

I understand.

But don't ever feel lonely.

Trust me.

You'll always have

lots of company.

Yeah, I got to get back

to my workout.

No offense.

None taken.

- All right.

- See ya around, Jack.

No, I'll hold.

No, I'm fucking not

calling back again tomorrow.

Tell her she needs

to speak to me now.
