Scottie! Billy!



OK, hot shot,

I'm coming to get you.

Allright, that's it...

That's completely out of character.

Dog Holiday was never a backshooter.

It just happened.

Allright Billy. If you're not

going to play fair...

I'm going to eat your face.

Okay, children.

Back to the real world.

Don't bother packing a lunch for me.

I'm just going to eat

some of this kid's head.

Oh, no.

Sometimes I wonder which of the...

two is the child.

He is.

Let's go partner, the stagecoach is waiting.

The stagecoach needs to leave soon.

No horsepower, eh?

Hey Dad. I want to go to your college


You're a little young to go to university.

Through the window, Dad.

Through the window, pal.

Here is your essay.

It's all very good.

Why would any kid who knows

as much about the old...

west, want to write something

about the zoo?

Let's teach him how to open

car doors first...

before trying more difficult things.


Give us a kiss and you got a deal.

OK. See you soon.


Dont spend too much time

playing with them guns, stranger.

Goodbye Daddy!

Get down Billy!


- No. Don't go near.

- Move away quickly.

- Let's go

- Leave me

I don't believe it. Every single

day for an entire year.


Hey, Joe. How are you?

Well, at least

democracy is saved.

- Listen, let's hit the road

- The road?

Oh, Scottie. Already forgotten

the Auction?


- It's at half past four.

- Of course.

Why not go ahead?

I'll get my things...

and follow.

Ah, you see Scott, I

thought we could...

go together and then we'll see...

Karen and her friend

and get something to eat.

I can't.

I must correct some proofs.

Oh, why not come with me and

my chauffeur will brings you back?

Right. Let me get my jacket.

I wish we could camp here.

We're like kids in a candy store.

I see what I like.

It was delivered by

Texas John Cody

- Is it authentic?

- Yeah, I think so.

It is a single batch.

Assorted chests, papers and other...

curiosities from the west.

Well this is your

sort of thing, isn't it Scott.

And mine, too.

You know, it's a shame to be

bidding between us.

I have an idea.

I'll bid and...

we'll divide it between us.


I want this

Trade done, partner.

It's got a bullet hole.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I

have your attention, please.

The auction will be starting soon.

Sit and please ensure

that you have a number.

We can not recognize

bidders that do not...

have a number.

Thank you.

Obliously we will start the auction...

with lot number one.

A knife.

A special knife.

This knife is like Jim Bowie's knife.

It has a large steel blade.

Probably used to skin

buffaloes and other...

nastier things.

You can see that long ago someone


to repair this knife...

using a piece of buffalo skin.

In my opinion this

confirms that it is authentic.

So who makes a first

bid of $ 500.

Hey, stranger.

A man does not dismount

here unless invited.

Yes, I forgot.

The smell of that coffee

made me...

forget my manners.


I'm obliged.

Where do you come from, friend?

Driving cattle to Tucson?

No need to drive them

so far now.

The railroad transports them

since 1880.

Where are you going?

Not sure.

I'm looking for a man.

A gunslinger.

He has a pair of 45s

with ebony handles...

and a silver star.

Are you the law?

Have you seen him?

- It seems that...

- No.

We haven't seen him.

You run out of coffee?

What was his name?


What was his name?

I only remember the guns.

A pair of 45s with ebony handles

and stars like you said.

It was in...


In the town of Crossfire.

If you are not faster than

my bullets, don't even try.

1800 razor sold to...

number 16.

Now to batch 27.

It consists of two chests. One

made of skin and the other of tin.

Containing well, let's see...

what it contains...

Old photos, old papers...

also a bottle of red eye...

empty, sorry to say.

However, it contains a lot of history.

Many great stories I would say.

As we shall see...

Has what aoppears to be a bullet hole.

Now do you want to bid please?

Lot 27.




Give me a whiskey.

Looking for a man.

He has a pair of 45s.

ebony handles...

and silver stars.

I'm not the sheriff.

Of course not. There's no law in

this town.

It wouldn't be healthy.

We have not seen anyone

here, you know.

Ebony and silver stars?

A bit fancy for this town.

Just like the clothing you wear


From the east, right?

Yes, I come from far away.

You lie. You have very little dust.

How did you get here, buddy?

I have come...

I came by train from Tucson.

Lies again.

There's been no train here

for more than two days.

We've seen guys like you before.

From the east looking for easy

money. Adventurers.

Bounty Hunters.

I wonder, what type would you be?

I have neither ebony or silver stars.

Just plain wood.

Five Points.

Should be very good.

I'm the best.

I believe you.

That's just words, friend.

Your eyes say something else.


Did you like what was in the bag?

Like the hole you'll have

in your head.

Yes good. Good.

No, no. The Journal

wants nothing more.

I can not have all these people here.

Listen, I am the Mayor

of this town.

I have a right to

be in the photo.

I don't care who you are.

You can be next.

Everyone can be.

But I need a very clear picture.
