Good day, brothers.

Good day.

And peace be unto thou, brothers.

Sorry to break up your meeting.

Thee hath been set upon by thieves?

Took everything we had.

It is an affliction of the times.

We too have been robbed.

Only an hour ago. By three soldiers.

We're the soldiers, brother.

They were wearing our uniforms.

- Did you lose much?

- Several horses, our small savings.

- Then you're going back

to Medicine Bend.

- No.

We have put ourselves

in the Lord's hands,

and decided to continue west.

I'm afraid we'll need a little more

than the Lord's help.

Thou art welcome to what we have.


Yes, Brother.

Be thou the Samaritan woman.

Find garments for our friends.

This way, friends.

Hey. This is quite a place.

What do we do now, Captain?

Look up the sheriff

and try to get our money back.

Hello, boys. Come on in

and have a drink on the house.

- That's for mel

- Me, too!

- We thank thee.

But we must refuse thy kind offer.

We haven't a dime between us

and you turn down a free drink?

Those are orders, Sergeant.

Pardon me. Could you tell us where

the sheriff's office is?

- In there.

- Thank you.

But the sheriff, uh... he's in there.

- In the saloon.

- Oh.

Have a look, boys.

- That's your horse, Captain.

- Yeah.

But there's nothing we can do

till we find out who's riding it.

Let's go inside.

But remember - no drinking.

- Just a little one?

- Not in these clothes.

Nobody knows we're not Brethren.

Keep it that way till we look around.

Do we have to talk like 'em?

That thee and thou stuff.

Yes. Thee has to talk like them -

and don't forget it.

If I'd known about this,

I'd have re-enlisted.

Well, if it isn't High,

Wide and Handsome again?

- Back for the free drinks?

- Yes, ma'am, if the offer's still open.
