Have a heart, friend.

I've been trying to explain to

you that I ain't your friend.

But I don't want anyone to

accuse me of not having a heart.

I'd like it if she

didn't have to see these.

Hide 'em in that hat.

Oh, uh...

I wouldn't try any city-slicker

stuff on this poor old country boy.

- Well, she's gone.

- Anybody can see that.

She said it was for ever.

Looks like country boys aren't the

only ones who get lied to by gals.

I'll turn Galveston

upside down. I'll find her.

You're sort of forgetting, Monsewer.

I got a prior claim.


Monsewer Paul Regret.

- You say this trip'll take five days?

- Right. Step aboard.

- What, on this mule?

- On the mule.

- Riding him's gonna slow us down.

- Very sad.

But if you were to take off for the tall

and uncut, I could run you down real easy.

- How we gonna eat?

- Ever been out in the fresh air?

A side of bacon, beans, a

coffee pot and a frying pan?

- All the comforts of home.

- Yeah. All the comforts of home.

I'm beginning to hate this mule

already. He's got a mean look.

His name is Mabel.

Well, come on, Mabel.

Break out the coffee.

It's in your saddlebag.

Get it.

All right.

Unless you want this salt pork burned.

Captain Jake.

My friend, you're a very brave man.

And pretty soon you're gonna

catch on I ain't your friend.

Captain Jake.

It's getting very tiresome

lugging this saddle around.

I don't suppose you'd take my word

of honour that I won't try to escape?

Monsewer, you are a lulu.

What do you find that's so interesting

about this miserable country?

I used to own a cattle

spread over there.

- You were a rancher?

- Yeah.

2,000 head of longhorn.

Indians run you out?

No. They weren't any trouble then.

Not till a few years ago.

Something's stirrin' them up now.
