Somebody's coming, Ben.

Yeah, how many?

Don't know, couldn't tell.

Just one.

I think I know him.

Hello, J.D.

Ben.

How've you been?

So-so.

You?

Can't complain.

You with them, Lightfoot,

or just passing through?

If I told you once, J.D.,

I've told you a dozen times.

My name is Chief Lightfoot.

And i'm a bona fide war chief

of the Comanche nation.

- And you and I...

- You didn't answer my question.

I'll make it plain.

Do I have to shoot you or not?

Stopped by for a cup of coffee.

Very good cup.

You figure I owe you anything, Ben?

Nope.

I got a warrant for the three of you and...

Pee Wee Simser.

- That's you over at the left, Pee Wee?

- That's right, J.D.

That's me.

And Joe Meehan, I see you.

Any of you want to surrender?

Now, what did you say?

I said, "Any of you want to surrender?"

Five of us and one of you?

I'll say one thing for you, J.D.

You got style.

Yes, sir, you got style.

Oh, no, you ain't.

You ain't gonna get me today,

you dirty, beady-eyed little sons.

Little Pee Wee ain't gonna die today,

you filthy scavengers.

Oh, shut up, Simser.

Buzzard bites you,

he'd never eat meat again.

J.D.?

I can hear. You don't have to shout.

What do you want?

J.D., i'm suffering the tortures

of the damned back here.

- Now, my leg is killing me. Can't we just...

- Don't start crybabying, Pee Wee.

I know the sound

of that old Spencer of yours.

You put a slug in the meaty part

of my left shoulder.

You knowed damn well

I've been shot there twice before.

You knowed.

Damn it, J.D.

These things is too tight.

There ain't no reason to chain us up

like a bunch of dogs.

Meehan!

Dad-blast it, J.D.

You ain't gonna sleep

with that Greener on cock, are you?

That's right.

If you even twitch your finger by accident,

you could blow our heads off.

If you call the tune, you pay the piper.

Meaning, if you don't like the treatment...

don't rob the banks.

Billy Joe!

Billy Joe Cahill!

Coming, Denver!

Make it mighty damn pronto.

It's time you was in bed.

There you are.

I don't know

what's got into you boys lately.

This morning I sent your brother

into town with Struther...

and he ain't back yet.

Now I can't get you to go to bed.

- I'm going.

- Damn right you are.

This is the last trip that Danny makes

with that Struther.

I told your pa it was a

mistake to hire him.

Would the marshal listen to me? No.

He rides off and leaves me

with everything to worry about.

Denver?

I'm awful tired. Can I go to bed now?

Sooner the better. Get plenty of rest...

cause we got a lot of darn work

to do tomorrow.

All right, the plates.

Whoa, boy.

Giddyup!

Get out of here.

That's all right.

Mr. Grady.

Can you spare one of them cigars?

Pay you back as soon as I get out.

How old are you, boy?

Seventeen...

going on 18.

Is that right, Struther?

He was 17 last week.

But he's a man full-grown, if you ask me.

And capable of making up

his own mind about...

cigars or whatever.

Ain't that right, Danny?

Yes, sir, you betcha.

His old man is gonna kick you

from here to California...

when he finds out how you've been

watching out over his boy.

I told you he was a man.

We're friends, is all.

I ain't watching over him.

Well, you should be.

I knew J.D. was wrong

when he took custody of you.

Promised the judge

you'd never use that knife again.

- You're nothing but a two-bit little...

- Sheriff?

Jimmy Kane's bringing in Charlie Smith,

and drunk as usual.

What's wrong, Charlie?

You're not due here till Thursday next.

I don't know.

Sheriff, the Devil called...

And I come running.
