Does it look familiar, son?
You was more dead than alive.
And the courage of my dad.
Riddled with bullets, he fell across me, whispering...
'Lay still, Ted boy. They'll think you're dead.'
He didn't know I had a slug through my lung.
Well, when they rode up, somebody lit a match.
And I laid still.
And the match died out.
And then somebody laughed.
Well, the next thing I knew, it was morning.
I was in your arms.
Yep, and I carried you all the way to Big Bend.
For two years, I didn't know whether you was
gonna live or die.
Well, it's doubtful.

I didn't know.
I wonder who he is.

Well, that's the fella that's got your dad's ranch!
Certainly is funny, but you sure do resemble
We don't know what this Gentry's up to, but...
We're gonna find out.
What do you mean?
I mean that from now on, I'm Gat Ganns.
Gentry, my daughter and I have considered
your offer for the ranch.
And have decided not to sell.
And someday I hope to make this a fine ranch.
I'll admit it's dry wire, Mr. Winters,
That's why I have sold half the herd.
- Excuse me just a moment, Mr. Gentry.
- Go ahead.
- Everything's right.
They're on their way.
I think you'll find that's right, Ms. Winters.
Too late for the bank now, Dad. I'll have
I've got some two-year-olds I'd like
to have you take a look at.
- How do you do, Mr. Gentry?
