I did not tell you

to use your weapons.

I was to get a $500 bonus

for bringing him in alive.

And now

you've killed him.

The bed.

Look under there.

He blew the tunnel.

It's blocked with rocks.

Son of a bitch!

We have no idea

which way he's headed.

Well, the man

can't run forever.

We'll go west.

I wouldn't do that

if I were you.

What the f*ck is this?


You got

some kind of problem

with the mail service?

This is the third

goddamn time.

We lost two men

and there's no

fucking money!

Three kings.


Handle first.

And the other one.

Nice and slow.


Shall we bring this

to the magistrate?


No way!

The cattleman is cheating.

I have three aces!

I'm sure you do.

If I were cheating,

wouldn't I win?

Well, you can't always

cheat luck.

If you look under the table,

you'll find two cards

on the floor.

You better run.

No, I think

I'll just shoot.

You shoot,

they'll lock you up.

They'll call

the marshal.

It might take a week.

Well, that's

a fuckin' ordeal.

Yeah. That is

a fuckin' ordeal.


If I'm not mistaken,

that gentleman fixin'

to end our days?

That's Cincinnati

John Mason.

I ain't never been

to Cincinnati.

I don't think I have

to tell you boys.

You both are gonna

wanna leave town.

Three fuckin' aces.

That's far enough.

Hey, it's Mr. Three Aces!



You're more than

welcome to join me.

Thank you.

I, uh...

And they

just attacked you

with no provoking?

It was time

to get up anyway.

Well, still.

So where you headed?



is east of here.


Promise, Wyoming?

You've been there?

I been there.

My name is McClure.

Ben McClure.

John Mason.

Cincinnati John Mason?

I ain't never been

to Cincinnati.

I work for the Express

in Promise

with a fellow by the name

of Dad Mason.

Is he any relation?


Holy shit.

Dad Mason's son is

Cincinnati John Mason.

I'm gonna show you

something here.

Well, that's nice.

Yeah, that's, uh...

Well, that's real nice.

That's for my girl.

Well, you know,




It ain't a proper

engagement ring or nothin',

but it's all I can afford.

You know, that cost me

over a month's pay.


It's got

a half-moon on it

'cause that's on account

of her middle name is Luna.


So you going to Promise

to visit your father?

I wasn't planning on it, no.

Well, I'm sure

he'd be happy to see you.

You think so?

I'd wager.

I would take that bet.

Well, a man's

got to be happy

to see his own son.


I told you

I'd shoot you on sight.

You're lookin'

right at me.


Well, my eyes ain't

what they used to be.


I hate it

when you talk Mexican!



Supper's at 6:

Bring some whiskey.

I'll be right back.


Hey, you all finished

with birthdays?

John Mason?

Alice Gordon?

You're all, uh...

You're all done growin'.

Yeah, well, you too.

So, what brings you back?

Is it true that you shot

that Pinkerton Agent,

Big Earl Smith?

How long are you stayin'?

Do you need a place?

'Cause you can stay

with me and Rudd.

I've got... I made

some delicious stew

on the stove.

It's delicious.

I, really... I put...

I'm not sure

which question

to answer first.

John Mason!

$300! No questions asked!

Okay, okay.

What I wanna know...

Is it true you shot

those horse thieves

before they even had

a chance to draw?

I told you.

I ain't never been

to Cincinnati.

I warned you!

I don't like Mexican!

Sorry to interrupt

your supper.

Charlie got himself

arrested again
