What the...

which one of you took a chip,

shot that fella in the back?

Reckon that's enough.

Lefty, ain't you a little gray

to be making these mistakes?

There you go.

Never can please

you, now, can I?

Hard of hearing, son?

I give up.

You ain't gonna shoot?


All's I'm saying

is that you can't

just go and throw a rope

around a man's neck

whenever the hell

it pleases you.

It don't ever please me.

WwW.ZooCine.Ne Watch Movies and Series!

One hell of a way to start

your career, Mr. senator.

I still can't believe

he'd shoot a man

over a $2.00 hand of poker.

Don't you say nothing to Laura.

You know how she feels about

me still acting the lawman.

Edward, she don't

listen to me, anyway.

Mr. Johnson.

Heh. Don't you worry none.

I'll tend to the horses for you.

"Can carry the coffin, but

the corpse will walk."


Oak, I raise you.

Be the day when i don't have to

bunk with the like of you boys.

Mr. Johnson already said he's

not taking you to Washington.

Washington? Who said

anything about Washington?

I'm talking about the two-story.

What on god's green earth are you

gonna do with a family house?

What the hell do you think?

Everybody's gotta have a dream.

It ain't up for debate.

You leave lefty in

charge of our ranch,

the place won't be

here when we return.

All right. I'll

bring him with us.

You will do no such thing.

A senator needs a good aide.

Edward Johnson, don't

even joke on this.

I need my peace and quiet.

I surrender. I surrender.

My goodness.

Arms down.

Now, lefty'll run

this ranch just fine.

You know he's ridden with

me 40 years now, and...

so has your horse.

We talk on everything else.

Don't know why you're being

so stubborn about this.

Nobody here is gonna

listen to him.

A more loyal man than lefty

brown hasn't walked this earth.

Loyal isn't the same as capable.

We need someone like tom harrah.

Well, if'n I'm gonna take

on all of Washington,

I need a fella I can trust

back here at the home front...

And a fine woman by my side.

You flatter all you want, Mr.


Don't change the fact that I

have a needle and you don't.

That's not fair.

Come on.

Damn post, what'd

i ever do to you?

Who won?

Well, seeing as

it's standing firm,

but I'm still lying in the dirt,

I guess I'd call it a draw.

You'll whip it yet. Come on.

Of course I will. I ain't

ever let you down.

I'm too old to

change my ways now.

I know that.

Do know that? Yep.

I also know that roundup's

approaching fast.

You, able to get

everything ready?


And it ain't gonna be just me.

No, it's gonna be oak

and Billy kitchen

and that fella that come...

Mr. Johnson!

Mr. Johnson!

The herd!

We've got three horses missing.

How many head?

Three horses off

the north ranch.

You ought to take oak or some of

the other boys along with you.

Don't you worry about

that, miss Laura.

That fella don't know what he's got

coming at him. Ain't that right...

lefty, hush.

These are good boys.

There's no reason not

to take them along.

With a look like that,

you're gonna scare

half of Washington.

Let's go.

You see? There's two shod

hooves and three unshod.

Have you ever...

now come on. Spit it out.

I was thinking on the

right words, is all.

You haven't changed

your mind, have you,

about putting me in charge?

What kind of a fool

question is that?

You know me. I ain't got the

sense to keep my mouth shut,

but still, the way your

Laura's looking at me

and what you was saying

earlier about am I ready,

it's got me thinking.

Maybe somebody else

ought to be in charge?
