Goddamn bunch of cutthroats.

Oh shit!

They'd keep me bellyup out here if

they knew I was getting ready to run.

Don't you make a noise

when you walk?

Hey wait a minute.

You got yourself all done up Ruby!

What are you up to?

- Here...

Oh no you don't. Ain't no trading

today Ruby. And not no more neither.

You folks have gone too far.

Trooper been snooping around.

Air Force been through here twice

You folks should go rob an Air Force

PX for god's sakes...

I'm hungry. No one comes through

back there anymore.

What'd you get?

Whisky and radios.

I ain't got nothing to eat.

I'm sorry Ruby,

I know you're starving.

But I got nothing else to trade.

I got no more gas, no more

cartridges, no more food.

And the folks in Corrin Creek

have cut me off already.

And there's even talk of blocking

off this whole section and marching

the national guard through

to see what they can find.

You coyotes better watch your P's

and Q's for a spell.

Take me with you.

What? So that's it.

You wanna get out.

Do you think you could pass out

there with the regular folks?

Why, you don't know a knife

and fork from your five fingers.

And you stink like a horse.

You're getting out. Take me too!

Does the pack know you're doing

this? Does Jupiter know?

Why, he'd cut you to pieces if I

told him you were going over the hill.

If my Pa' knew you was getting out.

He'd rip your lungs out.

Hello! Is there anybody around?

Get in here.

That'd be the State Troopers.

They'd toss you in jail and toss

the key on the wild side of old ...

I'll take a look around.

I don't see anyone...

I didn't hear you.

I was just cleaning up.

Well, fill it up and check the oil

and water.

I'll give you what I got. I ain't

got much. I'm just closing down.



Don't you mind them. They just

wanna play. Beauty, get down!

Get down now! That's a good girl

I'm telling you,

we're in the middle of nowhere.

Yeah, I wonder how far

it is to the nearest cheese burger?

We don't usually get folk up this

way. Where're you heading?

California. L.A. Movie stars and

fancy cars.

California! You're sure off the

beaten track for that.

Yeah, well we're just making a stop

'round here for some....

You know this place out there in the



Hey mister. You got a bathroom

around here?

Yeah, 'round in back. 'Round in


You need to make a litter dump. You

got a place to throw some trash?

Oh, hell! Use the whole damn desert

for all I care.

Oh, I'm sorry Bob.

You have your key? Good.

How are my two baby girls doing?


Hey little piggy.

So anyway we thought we'd take a

little detour and go see it.

It's supposed to be a real silver


Well anyway, that's why I was asking.

You see, it's my Aunt Mildred's gift

to Bob and me.

On our silver anniversary,

and that's tomorrow.

Lady there ain't no silver left back

in there.

Besides, the Air Force uses part of

this as a gunnery range.

You folks just forget about that

foolishness and go on to California.

That'll be six eighty.

- Ok.

I got no change.

- Well, that figured.

Detective, huh?

- That's right

Bob just retired from

the Police Force.

He had to a little early,

because of his heart.

Refer us to Dry Creek Road.

You know where that is?

Look Mister, don't take your family

back in there.

The silver's been gone 40 years now.

Besides, there's nothing in there

but animals.

Animals! You mean nobody lives back


Nobody you'd want to meet lady,

believe me...

See, there's nothing back here.

Jees, look at this place.

What's the matter? You see
