What the hell is that?

I don't know.


Bad luck drivin' over

the dead.

Drop 'em!


Wanna die for the banks?

I promise they're not gonna die

for you.

Gimme the shotgun.

Come on.

That's it.


Watch 'em, Jake.

Yeah, you got any more arms?



We hit it big here, boys!

Strong box.

Bet it's full of gold coins.

Now you saw my face.

Wait a minute, wait a-



No, no.

Cover your ears, ma'am.

There it is.

Get in here.

Come on, Jake.

Damn good plan.

Come on.



Well, you didn't have to put

your Sunday best on

to come down here to the

crow bait saloon to see me.

Oh, well I just came straight

from the bank.

How you been?

Yeah, fine, fine.

Fine as cream gravy.

So uh, how's business?

Uh, you know, the mine closin'

down hadn't helped none.

It's gettin' hard for a man

to find work around here.


Well, you know, my brother

down in Wichita falls,

season ain't much

better over there.

Yeah, well, what can I do

for you?

Ok, now, well, uh... I want you

to know that I'm...

I'm not here today as

a penny-pinching banker,

I'm here as your friend, Nate.

What is it?

Well, you're three months

behind on your home mortgage

and now before you say anything

it's no more than a minor

fuss right now.

But uh...

I- I'll catch up soon.

Uh, Laura Lee,

she's been sick.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear.

I'm sure they miss her down

at the schoolhouse.


Well, you know,

if it was up to me-

but it's not up to you, Hank,

and I understand that.

Well, anyway, uh...

Jensen's gonna give you

'till August and...

Well, if you're not caught up

by then he's gonna put

a lien on the ranch.

I tried to get him to give you

more time, but...

It's alright.

You know how he is.

I do, I do.

Thank you for comin' by.

I'm sorry.

That's... that's ok.

Hank holiday,

how're you doing?

Oh, I'm good, I'm good,

Laura, thanks for askin'.

Well, I... I should be off,


Are we gonna see you

for dinner soon?

You bet.

So you feel better.

Thank you.


Take care.

How's your day?


I know that look.

What's wrong?


Don't lie to me, Nathaniel Reed,

something's wrong.

It's written all over your face.

Hank says we have until

August to get caught up.

We're behind?

How much?

Three months.

Four next week.

Why didn't you tell me?

Because we were talking

about having little ones and...

Now I can just barely

provide for the two of us.

A man doesn't want

his wife to think...

Anyway, things will get better.

I know, but you still should

have told me.

I'm sorry.

I'll be back workin' at

the school soon enough.

We'll get through this together.


We've been down to the blanket

before and we're still here.

The reeds don't give up

their fiddle that easily, right?

No, ma'am.

Mama's comin' over

in the morning.

We're going to church together.

Laura Lee, I'm not goin'

to church with your mom, ok?

Hey, hey, hey.

No, I'm fine.

I'm just a little dizzy is all.

I'm gonna go get-

I'm gonna go get doc.

No, there's no need.

Well, then let me

take you inside.

You've got work

that needs doing.

I'm fine.

You got a lot of folks comin' in

through here.

What are you-

get in here!

Your wife?

What are you doin' here?

Get in here.

How'd you find me?

Jake breelove's dead.

Got let out yesterday

from coney.

He can't prove it, but

word is it was the Marshall.

What'd Jake do?

Who knows?

The Marshall, he didn't have

no warrant or nothin'.

This bartender, he told me

they're looking for

Nathaniel Reed's gang.

What for?

He didn't say what for,

but he's sure as hell after us.

After you left things

didn't turn out.

Things went bad.

A couple incidents went awry.

Sid nearly got himself

killed and...

Well, I ain't had a good score

since Santa fe.

Is that how Jake got killed?

Robbin' banks?

No, he got himself a job

as a bartender.

It's been near a year now.

Quiet as a dead mouse.

Why kill him now?

Don't make no sense.

He uh... changed his identity

like me.

The Marshall would have

taken a while to track him down.

The way they found Jake,


they found him in a way that

I'd rather not tell you,

truth be told.

Just tell me.

They cut him.

He was cut up.

He was cut up like someone

that was askin' questions

and they wasn't gettin'

the answers they wanted.

He knew where I was stayin', and

he knows where you're stayin'.

As soon as I got the word I rode

like hell to get here.

You understand what I'm sayin'?

There's a man comin'

and he aims to bury you.

I have a wife, a business,

people respect me here.

You can't be here, frank.

What, you don't believe me?

I believe you.

Well then, come on.

I ain't runnin'.

And I rode my horse into

the ground for you.

At least let me spend

the night here.

You can stay the night.

But you stay in here.

Don't tell me you didn't live

more in ten minutes with us

than you have

the whole time since.

I'll bring you some supper

over later.

Still got your guns?

Yeah, you got 'em.

When you leave here

in the morning...

Don't come back.

So, nausea, vomiting,

particularly in the morning,


How long have you

had these symptoms?

A week, maybe ten days.

Well, my medical opinion

tells me that

congratulations are in order,

Mrs. Reed.

What do you mean?

Morning sickness, fatigue...

I think you ought to entertain

the notion

that you're with child.

Are you sure?

Well, time will tell us

for certain.

if you feel nauseous

you take a drop of that.

Spearmint tea works as well.

Nate's gonna just

about pass out.

I'm sure he'll be fine.

Oh, I don't know about that.


Thank you lord for this food

on our plates

and this roof over our heads

and all the blessings

you've given us,

large and small.





You hurt your back again?


One of the horses sick?


Is it about money?

Not exactly.

What if I did get pregnant?

What would happen?

I want that.

You know I do.

We're just not ready.

Laura, I have something

i need to tell you.

So do I.

Nathaniel Reed!

He's here!

Don't shoot!

Who's he?

No, no Laura.


Nathaniel Reed!

I need you to step out of

your residence now

with your hands in the air!

Don't make us wait

too long, either!

we'll have to take some

shots in self defense.

You do something again?

No, I swear, I swear

i didn't.

No, sweetheart, go up

the stairs.

Alright, alright...

Do what I'm telling you to do!

Go upstairs and don't come

down 'till you hear my voice.


He will hang you,

you understand?

Or worse.

Get on your horse and ride.

I'm not gonna let anything

happen to Laura.


You think they're comin'

out shootin'?

I hope so.

I ain't armed.

You see that?

Yeah, we see that.

You want to put down

your iron?

I'm not sure.

I was really looking forward

to shootin' you.

She really was.

I need you to acknowledge

that I ain't heel.

We acknowledge it,

we ain't blind.

Look, I don't know what call you
