Do not be too conceited.

It's not a very large boat.

We certainly have picked a

wonderful evening to fall in love.

Don't be ordinary. What passes between

us tonight has nothing to do with love.

You don't believe that love exists?

I believe this very night, all over the

world, men and women

are saying to each other

"I love you" when what they

really mean is "I desire you".

You are a very unusual woman.

It is unusual to be honest.

I like independent women,

but I also want the right

to be able to choose my own.

Mr Regret.

You like independent women and

I admire men who can't be bought.

I think we've misjudged each other.

It's three days to Galveston.

Shall we start again?

To the beginning.

Wh... What?

$300 for a suit of clothes.

Where I come from, we could

outfit 30 men for that.

- Who are you?

- The name's Cutter. Jake Cutter.

Cap'n Texas Rangers.

This tailor's gonna be mighty

unhappy when he don't get his money.

Course, he'll get a lot of advertising.

You wearing that $300

suit onto the gallows.

- You can't do this.

- Well, now, let's see.

This here says Monsewer Paul Regret.

- That's Mr Paul Regret

in English, ain't it? - Yes.

- You're under arrest.

- I've committed no crime in Texas.

Right. But you killed

a man in Louisiana.

I'm taking you to the ranger headquarters

where a Louisiana marshal will pick you up,

take you back to New

Orleans and the gallows.

We're getting real obliging to

the states down here in Texas.

A lot of folks want to join the Union.

There's a couple of hundred

in gold in thatjacket.

Does that give you any ideas, friend?

I've got what you might

consider a weakness.

I'm honest. You start

getting into that $300 suit.

And I ain't your friend.

Give me a minute to talk to

someone. It's very important. A girl.
