[Wind howling]

No man should

have to face mornin'

or old man Bloodshy sober.

That's a good idea.

Why don't you wait here,

and I'll go and get us a drink?

It'd been better if I'd thought

of it five minutes ago.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Whoa.

Whoa, there.

We are here, sir.

Here, I'll give you a hand.

You do,

and you'll get my foot,

you jailhouse jellyfish.

Mind the wind, sir.

And mind your business,

Mansfield.

[Howling continues]

Great glory.

Take a look at that sight,

will ya?

Mine.

Bloodshy territory

as far as the eye can see.

The doctors

are quite concerned.

How much time does he have?

According to the doctors,

if he doesn't take care

of himself, it will be soon.

How much time if he does

take care of himself?

They give me

at least two days.

And that's why we're here.

To get a last look at what

I'm leaving to my heirs.

Heirs?

The land, the town, the money.

When you say "heirs,"

you do mean your son

Wild Billy, don't ya?

When I say "heirs,"

I mean just that.

I found my other boy.

Many years ago,

I grew a might too wild

for my bride's

highfalutin ways.

So one day, she up

and ran off back to England,

taking half my sons.

Half?

You mean you got two boys?

Traced him to Philadelphia.

This town needs another

Wild Billy

like it needs an earthquake.

You eat them words afore I pound

your face into a flapjack.

We better write a new will

so everything's fair.

You can stick your quill

back in the goose.

I already writ out my will.

And you ain't gettin' it

until I'm ready to go.

But a new will?

Mansfield, what do you know

about this?

Absolutely nothing, sir.

I never heard of it.

What are we gonna do?

Will you wait a minute

while I think about this?

There's gotta be an answer.

Whoa!

- Bloodshy!

- Bloodshy!

[British accent]

2, 3, 4.

Stop that racket!

Let's get outta here!

These vegetables

tell me something.

- We've got their attention.

- Get outta here!

Those guys over on 10th Street

were listening a lot better.

They were throwing rocks.

Eli, is that you?

Oh, Father Joshua.

I'm sorry to bother you

during your work,

but I have a very important

letter for you.

It's marked "special delivery"

and "urgent. "

And look at that postmark.

Arizona territory.

That's way out West.

That's curious.

Good shot, Harry.

I didn't know my father.

I didn't even know

I had a father.

Now I've found and lost him

all in one letter.

I guess you're an orphan,

Brother Eli, like us.

At least he's a rich one.

Only when we are giving,

Brother Marcus.

Of course, that's what

you meant to say.

Oh, sure.

How rich are you gonna be?

Well, it appears that there

is a considerable inheritance.

It mentions land

and there is a town,

and it says, "A considerable

amount of money. "

Ha ha ha.

Imagine the good work we could

do with that kind of wealth.

I guess you'll be out there

a long time.

Just long enough

to claim my inheritance,

and then we'll be back.

You mean

we're going with you?

Brother Demetrius says

it might help your education.

Yahoo!

Out with the cowboys and

the guns and the shoot-outs!

No, Brother Marcus,

not in my father's town, no.

Remember, whosoever seeks

peace and love shall find it.

If you have more dreaming to do,

do it with your eyes shut.
