And protects the weak

from strong.

[Slow jazz piano music]

GLASSCOCK:
So where do you know

this fella from?

SLlM:

We were in the pen together.

His brother stole some cotton

and drug him down with him.

He didn't do nothing.

The kid's green,

but he's got guts.

This here is

my business associate.

How do you do?

Brentwood Glasscock.

WlLLlS:
Willie Reed.

-Nice to meet you.

-You as well.

SLlM:
Been a slight change

in plans,fellas.

I went out there

and got it all set up.

Going in at 12:
00 noon

instead of 12:
00 midnight.

GLASSCOCK:
Slim,

I didn't travel 300 miles...

to stick a gun

in someone's face.

You can hold the horses.

A night job

is too much work anyhow.

I ain't afraid of hard work.

SLlM:
This'll be a milk run.

-Mr. Glasscock.

-Hmm?

BARTENDER:
Chief wanted y'all

to have a drink on him.

It's Napoleon brandy.

GLASSCOCK:
Thanks.

Heard they hit another pool

south of town last week.

BARTENDER:
They sure did.

WlLLlS:
Who's they?

GLASSCOCK:
Chief Bakenron.

One of the Osage millionaires.

BARTENDER:
Last year,they

wouldn't even let him in here...

but, uh, policy's changed.

WlLLlS:
Yeah? Why's that?

GLASSCOCK:
He bought the place.

WlLLlS:
Oil, huh?

GLASSCOCK:
Mm-hmm.

SLlM:
To Oklahoma, gentlemen--

the Sooner state.

The sooner we get out of here,

the richer we're gonna be.

You ain't gonna drink that?

WlLLlS:
Nah.

SLlM:
Ahh. Lordy.

lndians drink anything.

GLASSCOCK:

I prefer to go in at night.

There's more time to do

your work and a lot less people.

SLlM:
There's an easy way

to do this and a hard way.

Long as I'm leading this outfit,

we do it my way.

WlLLlS:
Which way is that?

SLlM:
Why don't y'all relax?

I got this sheriff's pecker

in my pocket.

We just cut him in

on the take,that's all.

GLASSCOCK:

I still prefer nights.
