- It's yours.

Providing my brothers

are my deputies.

- When do you want to start?

- Now.

- Who runs the gambling around here?

- Doc Holliday, mostly.

- Who runs the cattle?

- The Clantons.

Old man Clanton and his four sons.

Good evening, Mr. Clanton.

Good evening.

The fellow with the

trail herd, remember?

Oh, sure, I remember you.

You was right. I didn't

get very far with them.

They was rustled this evening.

That so?

Well, that's too bad.

Guess you ain't heading

for California, huh?

No. I figured on

sticking around a while.

Got myself a job.

- Cowpunching?

- Marshaling.

Marshaling? In Tombstone?

Well! Good luck to you, Mr...?

Earp. Wyatt Earp.

1864, 1882.

Eighteen years.

Didn't get much of a

chance, did you, James?

I wrote to Pa and Corey Sue. They're

gonna be all busted up over it.

Corey Sue's young. But Pa,

guess he'll never get over it.

I'll be coming out to see you regular,

James. So will Morg and Virg.

We're gonna be around

here for a while.

Can't tell. Maybe when

we leave this country...

young kids like you will be

able to grow up and live safe.

- What'd you find?

- I followed their trail...

from Clanton country to the river.

They're moving cattle, all right.

Well, get yourself some sleep. There's

coffee on the stove and some beans.

Morg's riding shotgun to Tucson.

Say, maybe I'd better ask around

the banks while I'm down there.

They're too smart for that.

Chihuahua, sing us the one

about the old blind mule.

Hey, Mac. I hear Doc's

coming back tonight.

Well, maybe he is and maybe

he ain't. I ain't heard.

Well, do you know where he's been?

Tucson. Over the border.

Who knows where Doc goes?

I love poker.

Yes, sir, I really love poker.

Every hand a different problem.

I've got to do a

little figuring here.
