[Eli]

Morning, George.

[Both chuckle]

This is a white

man's saloon,

and it sells

white man's liquor,

and Im telling you

to crawl your filth

out of here, breed...

before I kill you.

Ha ha ha ha.

Do you hear,

you red-skinned

n*gger?

A white man's

talking to you.

You need

stepping

on, breed.

Back off, lawman.

You hear that, George?

I'm gonna

bleed you, boy.

Jesus!

[Dog barking]

I'll get

Quincey Whitmore.

[Man]

Some Indian,

I think.

[Hall]

Eli's been

shot dead, Captain.

Some injun.

He's run.

An injun, you say?

l[Woman]

Eli's been shot!/l

Apache.

I'll get

Will Coop.

He wouldn't want

to miss this.

[Man]

The sheriff's dead.

Gonna get

that injun,

Quincey?

[Man]

Who is it?

Nye?

What is it,

Quincey?

What do you want?

Saunders, just

been killed.

It won't stop

the world a-turning.

Ah!

Now then,

ain't you a picture?

An injun shot him.

Oh, and you got dressed up

for the hanging, huh?

Well, we'll have

to catch him first.

Get your pants.

Yeah.

[Crowd cheering]

Getting night,

Quincey.

All we have

is sand

in the mouth,

and the horses

are tired sore.

How's Harvey's

horse?

Uh, threw a shoe

and a hoof's split.

Ain't nothing

for us, Quincey.

We got to

turn back

or bed down

out here.

Weli...

we could go

to the Hooker

brothers' place.

Only about 10,

12 miles from here.

We can night

there.

Aah!

Aw, come on,

honey.

It ain't gonna

hurt none.

Just give me

a little honey.

[Sobbing]

All right.

Now, Ill tan

your hide,

do you hear me?

Hey, Jubal,

hey, Jubal,

by all that's holy!

I'll take the skin off you,

you don't bide

what I say.

Ah!

You're damn crazy!

She's kin.

Come on,

get back to the house.

Ah!

[Dog barking]

What's with

that fool dog?

Riders coming,

Jubal.

Earl!

Looks like

Captain Quincey.

You've been up

to something else?

There's nothing

touching me, Jubal.

Quincey,

you're riding late.

Posse, Jubal.

We're hoping to put down

here for the night.

Why, sure.

Why not.

What's

the trouble?

Apache breed shot

Eli Saunders dead.

Jesus hell!

Saunders,

dead.

Elias, get some food

on that stove.

Earl, help

with them horses.

You lose him,

Quincey?

Yeah.

Aw, that's

hell's doing.

You figure on

pushing it on

at first light?

Well, he

headed south.

[Coyote howling]

I don't hold out

much hope.

[Horse whinnying]

[Spits]

Jesus,

what is that?

Potato

whiskey.

Ha ha ha.

I'd rather

be belly-shot.

You get

the first

swallow down,

the rest

tastes good.

Earl's right,

Harve.

It takes getting

used to,

like dying.

[Coughing]

Ha ha ha.

After your

first cup, Harve,

you're blind

anyway,

and after

your second,

you're darn glad

you're blind.

[All laughing]

Well, if we

catch this breed,

we won't

have to hang him.

We'll just give him

a jug of this.

Hey, you're

a cruel one, Harve.

[Chuckling]

Where's Jubal?

He'll be

out back

setting

some traps.

You best take

your spencer,

Captain

Quincey.

The

Everettes

had some

stock run off

by some Mimbrenos.

You never

know.

[Dog growling]

Shh.

It's me, Jubal.

I mean to be

no trouble, Jubal.

Your company's

welcome.

Been thinking

on tomorrow.

Be obliged

to hear.

Circle around

by the Everettes',

pick

them up.

Then go on to

the Malechie place.

He's got

2 mex riders.

Then over to

Ezra Meade's.

He has an old

Tigua Indian

that can track.

We might cut his trail

before he gets too far

over the line.

Weli...

[Dog barking]

Might be no more than

catching the wind.

We'll get him.

Quincey,

me and

my brothers
