Woh there.

Excuse me a minute, Major.

You know, I've been thinking

about home the past couple hours.

These here hills and all this mud

is beginning to get me.

Didn't seem to notice it so much

when we was a fighting

but this just riding along

through it day after day gets awful.

Hello there little fellow.

I'd sure be glad to get back

home to Texas again.

Tell us about Texas, Tiny.

He must think we're from that place

they call "the rest of the world".

You mean to tell me there's

someplace else besides Texas?

Yep.

I was sort of hoping we were

just living in a bad dream.

Don't you think it's about time

you two woke up?

Shiloh, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga...

Dirt, muck, blood.

Four years for nothing.

We fought for something we believed.

There's been no disgrace.

- So we pick off where we left off?

- Lf we make up our minds to it.

I wish I were like you, Neil.

You can make the best of anything.

- So can you.

- No.

No. At least I'm smart enough

to know myself.

See little brother,

I just don't like to lose.

I don't know about you fellows,

but I got me a lot of plans.

I figure the future of Texas

lies in its people.

I'm going back to assist

the ever expanding population

- of my beloved state.

- Think your wife still loves you?

You know she does.

I got two kids to prove it

and they'll be more little Texans.

You're a fine shepherd!

That poor little lamb

might have drowned.

Yes, sir.

When Tiny McGilligan

gets back to Texas they'll be

calling me "populating papa".

Well Dan,

we're finally getting close to home.

Got a lot of years to make up.

You said it just right Neil,

a lot of years to make up.

Believe me,

I'm gonna make them.

Are you sure this is Austin?

Maybe we've been away

more than four years.

Why don't you two look around

for a couple of minutes?

I got something to tend to.

I'll take those Miss.

I'd say Miss on first and second

sight you don't need a new hat.

You must be a stranger here.

That's right.

First return in four years.

- Major there have been changes.

- I can see that.

I hope you think they're

for the better.

I'm not in a position to know...

Yet.

Maybe you'll find out soon.

I wonder what you'd look like with

a shave and some up to date clothes.

Goodbye.

Dan, you can look but

even that's wasting your time.

She's taken.

Sam Hunter!

You're the first proof I've had

that I'm back in Austin.

You're not only back but

I'll buy you a welcome home drink.

Let's go.

Now she's known Alexis,

the darling of Texas.

She is just a five foot girl

but she gives 6 footers a whirl.

That's what they say about Alexis,

the darling of Texas.

Looks like you got the wealth

of the world right here in Austin.

A lot of it here alright.

We really do have it though.

Most new money, northern capitol.

I guessed as much.

If a fellow has money,

there are ways of making more.

I hope some of it

has rubbed off on you.

No, still chief country clerk.

Good job.

But I reckon I just lack

the old savvy, that's all.

That girl in the carriage,

who is she?

I told you, she's taken.

- What do you mean taken?

- Married.

- To whom?

- Cord Hardin, from Illinois.

Money, plenty of it.

Ranches, cattle...

How do you stack up against that?

I don't.

I'm one of the vanquished.

Back home and broke kind.

A fellow gets back and looks

at all this wealth

he begins thinking.

- About making money?

- Making big money, fast money.

You got any ideas?

No, but if I could

get a start somewhere...

I better find Neil before he thinks

I'm swallowed up by the new world.

Good luck.
