You boys act like you never
done an honest day's work
in your lives.

Get the boys.

Get out of the way!

Get the boys.

Here,
watch that. Let me...

Boys, move it.
Come on, we ain't got all day.

Wonder what
his brother's going to say

when he finds out
we moved all that gold
from the mission.

Boys, move it.
Come on, we ain't got all day.

We did pretty good, didn't we?

God almighty,
you're burning day light.



You boys act like you never
done an honest day's work
in your lives.

You get in there and tell
those boys to move everything
to the back of the cave.

- Yes, sir.
- Go, now.

All right, you heard the man.

Come on, let's move,
everything to the back
of the cave.

Come on...

When he finds out
we moved all that gold
from the mission.

Hey, what are you doing?

You get in there and tell
those boys to move everything
to the back of the cave.

Just enough to close her up
like a tomb.

Get in there and help
those boys get everything
moved to the back.

Sure.

That ain't going to bring
that whole mountain down?

Just enough to close her up
like a tomb.



"Not from a sudden
act of creation but slowly,
laboriously,

"by gradual
and often devious ways."

You see what it's saying, boys?

Like a tomb.

"The human species is come in
being like the rest,

"not from a sudden
act of creation but slowly,
laboriously,

"we are thus no exception
to life's rule.

"The human species is come in
being like the rest,

Lou, keep an eye out for the
gray gang.

I mean, ain't you never seen
a dog or a horse yawn
when it's tired like us?

- Yeah, so?
- Well,

then don't it kind of follow
that we're all sort of kind of
part of the same family?

Ike says that hickok baths
about as often as his horse.

You see what it's saying, boys?

Huh?

I mean, ain't you never seen
a dog or a horse yawn
when it's tired like us?

I'm telling you boys,
there's lessons to be learned.

If this evolution stuff
is true, for example.

Now, if we're all part
of the same family,

it don't make sense for
a relative to suffer, does it?

Ah, we treat
our horses just fine.

Ike says that hickok baths
about as often as his horse.

Does that mean they're related?

Yup.

Ah, we treat
our horses just fine.

I've seen a lot of slaves.
Wish they were treated
half as well.

The same could be said
for the Indians.

This coin is a perfect
duplicate from your map.

Fine piece of craftsmanship.

Don't you agree, Mr. Pike?

For you I would charge, ah...

That's right, ike.

The same could be said
for the Indians.

Oh, yeah, I agree.

And now,
is to a matter of payment?

Now, I suppose you took care
of that little package for me
I asked you about?

Yes, Mr. Pike.
It went out to your brother
on the morning stage.

And now,
is to a matter of payment?

Well, what would a fine piece
of workmanship like this run?

For you I would charge, ah...

No! No! Daddy!

Now, I suppose you took care
of that little package for me
I asked you about?

No! No! Daddy!

And my adopted father.
Teaspoon hunter.

Can I buy you a drink?

Sorry.

I have a policy about drinking
with customers.

Yes, Mr. Pike.
It went out to your brother
on the morning stage.

Wait!

That's the man. That's him.

You have lost
a small fortune here,
haven't you?

Ah, I'd say enough to buy me
a partnership in this place.

Interesting offer.

- But, I already
have a partner.
- Huh.

By the looks of that badge,
I'd say a protector
as well, huh?

That's the man. That's him.

He killed my father.

Friends of yours?

And my adopted father.
Teaspoon hunter.

By the looks of that badge,
I'd say a protector
as well, huh?

Why, Mr. Turner,
are you insinuating that
I need protection?

No, ma'am.

I have a policy about drinking
with customers.

It's a shame you don't have
the same policy about, ah,

beating them in cards.

You have lost
a small fortune here,
haven't you?

Beating them in cards.

You have lost
a small fortune here,
haven't you?

Oh, I wouldn't bet on that
if I were you.

It's been my experience that
when men take to hanging,
drinking usually follows.

No one knows where he put it.

He's going to hang.

No, ma'am.

I'm just wondering right
about now if I do?

What do you say to closing
shop for the day and
joining me for on a picnic?

I mean, it don't look like
you would be missing much.

Oh, I wouldn't bet on that
if I were you.

It's been my experience that
when men take to hanging,
drinking usually follows.

What for?

Time to go.

Yeah.

There's nobody gonna
hang me, sheriff.

What for?

You're just going to have
to bring me back here anyway.

There's nobody gonna
hang me, sheriff.

- Nobody's going to come
out of there.
- He's supposed to be...

"You have been duly convicted
in a court of law

"of robbery, murder,
and arson."

Anything to say for yourself?

- Nobody's going to come
out of there.
- He's supposed to be...

Not that I don't appreciate
the company,

seeing a man dance on
the end of a rope
isn't my idea of fun.

I see.

Crowd's out for blood.

Now, you wouldn't want to
disappoint them, would you?

Not his blood, sheriff.

Yours.

So why did you spend
two weeks at his trial?

Not that I don't appreciate
the company,

but aren't you afraid of
missing all the fun?

Seeing a man dance on
the end of a rope
isn't my idea of fun.

Back! Get back!

Back! Get back!

All right,
now you all know we
got a hanging to attend to.

I'm sorry, it was just that
I was expecting...

Somebody else.

Afternoon, deputy.

I wouldn't go no further.
There's an awful lot of
desperate people here.

I haven't got any choice, ev.

Yes, you have. Let's just
shoot him right here.

So that's the way it is, is it?

Okay, now you all listen
and listen up good.

You either let me
hang this man or I'll just
kill him right here!

All right,
now you all know we
got a hanging to attend to.

Now, clear out of the way so
we can get on with this.

Can't hang him, Clint.
Not before we go to
the governor like he wants.

Wake up, ev. The governor
ain't pardoning a killer

for returning the money
he stole from us.

We don't know that till we try.

And if we don't get
that money back,
this town's dead for sure.

Like I told you dooley,
ain't nobody going to hang me.

I wouldn't go no further.
There's an awful lot of
desperate people here.

So that's the way it is, is it?

You either let me
hang this man or I'll just
kill him right here!

Now you're talking, boss.

Like I told you dooley,
there ain't nobody
going to hang me.

Nothing yet.

- Well, that's too bad.
- You're telling me.

Emory pike got my
life's savings when
he cleaned out our bank.

Like I told you dooley,
there ain't nobody
going to hang me.

Emory pike got my
life's savings when
he cleaned out our bank.

If he hangs, I might as
well hang with him.

Let's say I treat you to lunch?

Full stomach always makes
a man more optimistic.

Any word from the governor?

Nothing yet.

How're we doing?

Buy you a drink, ma'am?

Oh!

Nothing yet.

- Well, that's too bad.
- You're telling me.

Emory pike got my
life's savings when
he cleaned out our bank.

Oh!

Hack, ah...

Oh, boy, you sure know how
to make a body feel welcome.

I'm sorry, it was just that
I was expecting...

Much obliged.

Just fine. Just fine.
Still singing that
same old song.

"I ain't going to hang,
I ain't, I ain't, I ain't
going to hang, I ain't."

Ah, you've got to give the
man credit, when he believes,
he really believes.

I'd like to shoot him.

Huh.

Afternoon, deputy.

How's that prisoner
of yours doing?

Just fine. Just fine.
Still singing that
same old song.

Something special you wanted
to talk to me about?

Yeah.

I got something for you.

Well, it looks like the
governor came through for you.

Huh.

- You ready?
- I'll meet you out front
in a minute.

Something special you wanted
to talk to me about?

It's lovely hack,
but you already
gave me this one.

You can't be saying that
we all descended from apes,
can you?

Well, that's what he's saying.

Makes pretty good sense to me.

And the name is not Turner.

It's pike.

Well, I hope so.

Maybe then you'll give me
the time of day.

I'll do you one better.

Tonight I'll sleep with
your book under my pillow.

It's lovely hack,
but you already
gave me this one.

No, no, no.
This one's different, see?
Rides again.

What do you know about that?

Well, this fellow, Marcus, is
going to make you real famous
with all these books.

Well, I hope so.

Of course in Cody's case, uh,
I expect it might be true.

Tonight I'll sleep with
your book under my pillow.

Well, that's a start.

We'll never be able to get
a posse together in this town.

And, we're going to
need an army to get him
to fort laramie.

Who said anything about us
taking him to fort laramie.

Treating people right is
one thing, teaspoon,
but now you're reaching.

You can't be saying that
we all descended from apes,
can you?

Is that a giraffe?

This just came in.

Yeah, well, you're just
going to have to get me there,
aren't you, dooley?

I better be going,
it's getting late.

You remember your promise,

well, if you believe it,

I believe it.

I told you I weren't
going to hang.

No.

Not here, anyway.

Pike's got a point.

We'll never be able to get
a posse together in this town.

It's from the governor.

Not here, anyway.

Looks like that pleasure's
going to belong to the
army over at fort laramie.

Yeah, well, you're just
going to have to get me there,
aren't you, dooley?

Who said anything about us
taking him to fort laramie.

You remember your promise,

not a word to anybody.

We'll be leaving first thing
in the morning.

Not a word.

I've got a special message
for teaspoon.

It's from the governor.

Delivering pike ain't going
to be a picnic.

More like a last meal,
if the stories
about him are true.

You ought to take a
couple of us with you.

But this ain't your job.

When has that ever stopped us?

Well, it should have.

Somebody should have.

Says here
the sheriff from Benton's
delivering pike to Sweetwater

and that it's
my responsibility to get him
on to laramie.

Delivering pike ain't going
to be a picnic.

Whoa.

You ought to take a
couple of us with you.

Ah, I appreciate the offer,

but this ain't your job.

I should have.

Guess you could have.
But you couldn't.

And waxing and waning about it
ain't going to stop us
from following you.

Like we always do.

It was perfect.

The picnic, the food,
the company...

Hey.

What am I going to do
with you boys?

Deputize us.

Like you always do.

So...

I'd appreciate it
if you'd play this hand
a little slower.

Give me some time.

I'd better go.

Aren't you going to
invite me in?

- Not tonight.
- Why not?

End to a perfect day?

It was perfect.

That rivals yours at cards.

Well, maybe we're both
due for a change of luck.

Give me some time.

How about breakfast tomorrow?

Say, ah, nine o'clock?

Well, maybe we're both
due for a change of luck.

Long overdue.

So?

So...

Say, ah, nine o'clock?

Mmm. Say noon.
It's more civilized.

Hey.

It's just that, I've been on a
losing streak with men lately

that rivals yours at cards.

Still clear, sheriff.

You think the mayor
will fire us for this?

Ah, if he don't lynch us first.

Forgot something.
Be right back.

Mmm. Say noon.
It's more civilized.

Noon it is.

Good night.

Still clear, sheriff.

Where you going now?
What's wrong?

Forgot something.
Be right back.

Ah.

- How was your breakfast?
- Excellent.

Excellent.

Ah, if he don't lynch us first.

Mind telling me what's
so important you'd risk
getting our butts hung for?

Anybody besides yourself
ever buy them
damn stories about you?

Ah, this one's different,
it's about hickok.

Figure as long as we going
to Sweetwater,

mind telling me what's
so important you'd risk
getting our butts hung for?

One of my books.

Hack, tell me something,

anybody besides yourself
ever buy them
damn stories about you?

- When?
- Sometime tomorrow night.

Any idea where
they're headed?
Sweetwater.

We'll have it in bed.

Frank.

Frank, open up.

Figure as long as we going
to Sweetwater,

I might as well get him
to sign mine.

Excellent.

And, who knows,
maybe someday we'll, ah,

we'll have it in bed.

Ah.

One second.

Are you trying to
sweep me off my feet?

No, I'm trying
to get you out of here.

And the name is not Turner.

Any idea where
they're headed?
Sweetwater.

The station manager says
marshal hunter's taking him to
fort laramie.

Say why don't you grab
a few things and join me.

Ah, I'd love to, but I've got
a business to run.

- Maybe in a few weeks.
- Ah, well now, I can't wait
a few weeks.

What was that all about?

I've got to go.

He's young, full of himself,
got ants in his britches,

but he's a top gun and
he ain't afraid of nothing.

I'll meet you outside.

I've got to go.

- Will you be long?
- I'm afraid so, yeah.

Say why don't you grab
a few things and join me.

What was that all about?

I've got to go.

It wasn't my idea to
stick you with this.

I know that.
I got the same letter.

- Maybe in a few weeks.
- Ah, well now, I can't wait
a few weeks.

Why, Mr. Turner,

are you trying to
sweep me off my feet?

Frank pike.

Well, that depends.

Kind of like fertilizer,
use it right and
it makes things grow.

Use it wrong and it's just
something else to step in.

Just so's you know, teaspoon,

it wasn't my idea to
stick you with this.

Kangaroo kid.

These all about you?

Great cup of coffee but i'd
preferred it in bed, alone.

I know that.
I got the same letter.

I, ah, I'm going to
leave my deputy hack Wilkins
with you.

He's young, full of himself,
got ants in his britches,

Yeah, neither would I,
but, ah, I don't think
that's what it's meant for.

Well, it can't be too good
then, can it?

Well, that depends.

What's a kangaroo?

A marsupial.

Kind of like a six-foot mouse.

But he's a top gun and
he ain't afraid of nothing.

I know the type.

You passed a few of mine
on the way in.

Like that hickok kid?

Everything they write
about that boy, true?

Sign it? What for?
It ain't nothing
but a pack of lies.

I wouldn't wipe
my horse's tail with the paper
it's written on.

Yeah, neither would I,
but, ah, I don't think
that's what it's meant for.

Yeah.

What did I do except ask you
to sign a book.

All you have to do is say no.

No. Satisfied?

These all about you?

Kangaroo kid rides again.

What's a kangaroo?

- What's that supposed to mean?
- Nothing.

What do you mean, nothing?
Call a fellow a rat,
that ain't nothing.

What did I do except ask you
to sign a book.

Kind of like a six-foot mouse.

Sounds more like a rat to me.

- What's that supposed to mean?
- Nothing.

Kangaroo kid rides again.

What's a kangaroo?

Cut her loose.

Thought you could use
something hot.

Oh, how considerate of you.

Cut her loose.

If we're going to elope,
frank, you should have
had me wear white.

It will be a funeral
if that father of yours
doesn't do like he's told.

My name's Lucas redfern,

and I've got a message for you
from frank pike.

Great cup of coffee but i'd
preferred it in bed, alone.

You never lose your
composure, do you?

Only at weddings and funerals.

The frank pike I've heard of
don't ride with farmers.

He crosses my land
every now and then.

I stay away from him.

Only at weddings and funerals.

Well, I might just get lucky
and see that
side of you after all.

If we're going to elope,
frank, you should have
had me wear white.

And he knows you're taking
him to fort laramie.

And how's he know that?

I don't know.

It will be a funeral
if that father of yours
doesn't do like he's told.

I've already told you.
Teaspoon hunter's
not my father.

Father, partner, call him
what you like.

My little brother hangs,

there's going to be
two funerals.

I stay away from him.

But he's seen me,
seen my family.

Told me if I didn't
come here, something would
happen to them.

You don't shut up,
your hanging's going to be
a waste of time.

And I've got a message for you
from frank pike.

The frank pike I've heard of
don't ride with farmers.

Well, I know what I got
that he wants.

What's he got that I want?

Amanda O'Connell.

An exchange.

An exchange, huh?

Well, I know what I got
that he wants.

I don't know.

But, he wanted me to tell you
he's willing to make

an exchange.

He'll kill miss O'Connell.

You know where
I'm supposed to bring him?

- Yeah.
- You take me there?

You don't shut up,
your hanging's going to be
a waste of time.

Frank says if something
happens to his brother

knowing frank, for your
lady's sake, I hope she ain't
as pretty as that comb.

Pike...

Frank says if something
happens to his brother

like being hung or being shot
trying to escape,

he'll kill miss O'Connell.

- Yeah.
- You take me there?

I got a family to think about.

So do I.

Amanda O'Connell's
like a daughter to me.

Pony express rider,
let's get him!

Looks like
it's going to be a busy day.

So what's the plan?

All right.

Jimmy, I want you, buck
and Noah to take him there.

Dooley's deputy will be
riding with you.

The kangaroo kid rides again.

Kid, Cody, it will be up to
us three to rescue Amanda

before frank pike
realizes I ain't bringing
his brother to him.

Well, how are we going to know
whether or not you got her

the kangaroo kid rides again.

And again, and again.

Kid, Cody, it will be up to
us three to rescue Amanda

good going, girl.
We lost them.

We already said we're in.

Amanda's like family to us too.

You won't.

Now hold on, teaspoon.

We ain't going to let 'em
string up pike before we know
Amanda's safe.

Jimmy, you've got one job
to do, and one job only.

All right.

Emory pike's supposed to be
hanged in laramie next week.

Jimmy, I want you, buck
and Noah to take him there.

Jimmy, you've got one job
to do, and one job only.

You get pike to laramie.

- All right.
- We've got plenty
of time before the hanging.

Well, how are we going to know
whether or not you got her

before pike's supposed to hang?

You won't.

We better.

We'll leave at
first crack of dawn.

What you writing, kid?

Ah, nothing.

Probably his will.

Hey, make sure you
spell my name right.

- All right.
- We've got plenty
of time before the hanging.

We'll meet you there.

Teaspoon, if you don't get
to Amanda before frank pike
knows his brother's dead...

Don't mean we still can't
be friends.

She's going to be hotter than
a pistol when she finds out
we left without her.

You and I both know that
having her along is just
something else to worry about.

Ah, I don't think Lou would
see it that way, kid.

Teaspoon, if you don't get
to Amanda before frank pike
knows his brother's dead...

We'll be there.

We better.

Hey, make sure you
spell my name right.

For your information,
I'm writing a note to Lou.

I thought you and Lou were,
sort of...

Listen, ever since Lou and I
got together,

I've been having to listen to
you all tell me what you would
or what you wouldn't do.

What you'd say or
what you wouldn't say.

She hasn't let us down
in a fight yet.

What the hell you think I meant?

I thought you and Lou were,
sort of...

We are.

Don't mean we still can't
be friends.

She's proven herself to me,
that's for sure.

What's that supposed to mean?

She hasn't let us down
in a fight yet.

Ah, I don't think Lou would
see it that way, kid.

The trouble with Lou
is that she's always trying
to prove herself.

She's proven herself to me,
that's for sure.

Well, I guess it ain't over
till it's over, huh?

But the fact is,
is that she's different.

No matter what her
or any of you say.

Kid?

Listen, ever since Lou and I
got together,

It's between Lou and me.

I'd appreciate you all
minding your own business.

Especially you, Jimmy.

If memory serves me, kid,

I thought that Lou said
you shouldn't treat her
any different.

Especially you, Jimmy.

She can say whatever she wants,

but the fact is,
is that she's different.

What you'd say or
what you wouldn't say.

Now we're broken up and
you're still giving me advice.

It's between Lou and me.

- All right.
- Thanks.

Barnett,

oh, ike's on his way
to Saint Jo.

We'll be long gone by the
time he gets back.

I've asked the company to
send you some extra riders.

Well, I guess it ain't over
till it's over, huh?

Buck, Noah,
all you boys, ride safe.

God willing, we'll end up in
fort laramie in three days.

You're leaving ike and Lou
with an awful lot of runs.

Oh, ike's on his way
to Saint Jo.

I was wondering if you
could hold something for me.

It's a keepsake
I gave to Amanda.

- All right.
- Thanks.

I've asked the company to
send you some extra riders.

Rachel, I was, uh...

I was wondering if you
could hold something for me.

Keep an eye on things
while I'm gone.

Like always.

Jimmy,

a lot of people are
going to be trying to
get in your way.

Be careful, son.

Like always.

That's what I'm afraid of.

Jimmy,

we will, teaspoon.

Buck, Noah,
all you boys, ride safe.

God willing, we'll end up in
fort laramie in three days.

With some fine stories to tell.

Let's just hope we're all
around to hear them.

Good luck!
Hasta la vista!

Let's just hope we're all
around to hear them.

Let's move out.

Have any trouble?

Nothing I couldn't handle.

Whoa!

Have any trouble?

What's going on?

It's a long story, Lou.
The kid left this note
explaining things though.

I'm going on back to the house.

- Who are they?
- Temporary riders.

What's going on?

- Are you expecting trouble?
- Always.

- Don't you?
- I live for it.

Especially if it's yours.

We'll stay here until
I get word about my brother.

I'm afraid the accommodations
aren't up to the level to
which you're accustomed.

Somehow I would have expected
more from you, frank.

Well, our permanent camp is a
lot more suitable to a woman
of your delicate tastes.

Then why are we stopping here?

'Cause you can see
trouble coming for
about a hundred miles.

- Are you expecting trouble?
- Always.

We'll stay here until
I get word about my brother.

I wouldn't want you to
forget why you're here.

- Teaspoon hunter.
- That's right.

And as long as he cares more
about saving you than hanging
my little brother, well,

you'll do fine.

Somehow I would have expected
more from you, frank.

Well, our permanent camp is a
lot more suitable to a woman
of your delicate tastes.

Especially if it's yours.

Ramirez will take care of
your needs.

I thought you were
going to do that.

Thanks for your help.

You'll do fine.

Just fine.

Thanks for your help.

Again,

please accept my apologies.

Band of renegades
controls the whole stretch
after the foothills.

Hundred miles of plains,

frank pike's sitting
right in the middle of it.

Then we'll have to
go around 'em.

We head east, we can cross
the river
about this time tomorrow.

Na, it will take too long.

There's no way
over the mountain.

Damn.

Then we'll have to
go around 'em.

They ride in packs of 10,
maybe 15.

Just as soon kill a white
man as talk to him.

Do it for free or if
frank pike pays 'em.

The pass we were
counting on taking is closed.

There's no way
over the mountain.

Pays them for protection.

Uses the old trapper's fort
when he's on the run.

Well, the only sensible thing
is to go east.

What about west?

West's no good.

Band of renegades
controls the whole stretch
after the foothills.

When they see we
don't have him...

How many of them are there?

They ride in packs of 10,
maybe 15.

Well, the only sensible thing
is to go east.

But myself, I'll be headed west.

Frank pike's sitting
right in the middle of it.

They're expecting us, teaspoon.

No, they're expecting
pike's brother.

When they see we
don't have him...

Do it for free or if
frank pike pays 'em.

- Pike?
- He's got
a deal with them.

Pays them for protection.

But myself, I'll be headed west.

- Teaspoon...
- Don't want to take a chance
on being late.

There's no sense
changing directions now.

- Teaspoon...
- Don't want to take a chance
on being late.

See you boys later.

Well, I'd be heading west
my whole life.

- Wouldn't know.
- Haven't read mine.

What's so funny?

Never read one of mine, neither.

Why not?

Well, I'd be heading west
my whole life.

There's no sense
changing directions now.

You did? Huh! Wow!

So, ah,
how's it compare to yours?

- Wouldn't know.
- Haven't read mine.

Ah, I just wanted
to apologize for
tearing into you.

Just, when you showed
up with that book on me, um,

I got a little crazy.

Why not?

Afraid the lies wouldn't
be big enough,
and the truth would hurt.

Oh, I understand that.

Ah, I just wanted
to apologize for
tearing into you.

Is that still a penal colony?

Not anymore.
It's become respectable,
like the United States.

No offense taken.

Did you, uh, get to read
the one about me?

Yeah, I know what he did.

Did you, uh, get to read
the one about me?

Actually, uh, yeah, I did.

You did? Huh! Wow!

Oh, I understand that.

Where you from, hack?

Sydney.

Sydney, Australia.

Is that still a penal colony?

My mother died when I was six.

- My father last year.
- Of rope burn.

Not anymore.
It's become respectable,
like the United States.

What brings you here?

Adventure, boredom,
bad memories.

Don't do it, hack.

No, go ahead, hack. Do it.

Adventure, boredom,
bad memories.

Anyway, who's turn is it
to ride point?

No, go ahead, hack. Do it.

Pull the trigger.

Better you hang than me.

Yeah, I know what he did.

Heard dooley talking about it.

Better you hang than me.

Back off, hack.

He ain't worth the lead.

Kangaroo kid rides again, huh?

No one's going to hang you,
pike,

'cause I'm going to
shoot you right here.

No one's going to hang you,
pike,

'cause I'm going to
shoot you right here.

- Only one.
- One of frank pike's men,
by my guess.

I'll go.

Who knows, might be able
to find something
to write about.

Kangaroo kid rides again, huh?

I'll track him.

- Must be
three or four of them.
- Least two.

Hack.

I'll go.

- Must be
three or four of them.
- Least two.

We're not going to hurt you.

Yeah, well if it was,

he knows pike's with us and
not with teaspoon.

He gets back to tell
the gang, teaspoon could
find himself in a trap.

I'll track him.

We're not going to hurt you.

Then why did you creep up
on me with that knife?

- You were shooting at us.
- Wasn't shooting at you.

Was shooting at pike.

I'm not that good with a gun.

We're on the same side.

- The law...
- The law already tried to
hang him once.

It didn't do much good.

Laramie's different than Benton.

Why? 'Cause it's filled
with soldiers?

I'm not that good with a gun.

One of the people who's
money pike stole?

No.

You take me to laramie with you?

- I don't think...
- Remember what you said.

Wouldn't you rather have me
beside you than behind you?

Why? 'Cause it's filled
with soldiers?

There's a war coming.

They've got a lot more
important things on their mind
than hanging Emory pike.

The only thing,
the way you shoot,

they've got a lot more
important things on their mind
than hanging Emory pike.

Seems like everybody's got
reasons not to hang him.

The only thing,
the way you shoot,

I think the whole territory
would feel a lot safer
if you were on our side.

You take me to laramie with you?

Except me.

And me.

Wouldn't you rather have me
beside you than behind you?

I thought this was going to
be a trade.

Things happen.

Especially when you
want them to happen.

Or is it power?

I don't need much.

I hope they feed you
more than this.

Not before a fight.

I thought this was going to
be a trade.

Especially when you
want them to happen.

And what is it you want,
Ramirez? Gold?

Not if it's going to
get me killed.

Damn, must be 10 of them,
hot on our trail.

Kid? You notice anything
strange about this
redfern fella?

Like what?

I told you this would happen.

You know this territory.

Any way we can duck 'em
and still save ourselves
some time?

I don't need much.

Everybody wants more.
Maybe you and I could work
out a little trade of our own.

Renegades.

How did they get
onto us so fast?

Must have happened
on our tracks.

I told you this would happen.

Kid? You notice anything
strange about this
redfern fella?

Yeah, maybe.

Well, let's get to it.

No, he ain't that stupid.

Noah, we're talking about
someone who thinks
life's a 10-cent novel.

Like the way he sits a horse.
No farmer rides like that.

Don't suppose
the kangaroo kid's
working at generating

some of his own
excitement, do you?

You got a point.

Some of his own
excitement, do you?

No, he ain't that stupid.

Like what?

Like the way he sits a horse.
No farmer rides like that.

You haven't seen a
marshal teaspoon hunter
around, have you?

No, I'm afraid I haven't.
You expecting him?

Yeah, kinda.

Yeah.

Good night.

Good night.

It's scheduled for tomorrow.

What are you talking about?
I thought pike was supposed
to hang next week.

Orders from
the governor himself.

Pike hangs at noon,
no ifs, ands,
or buts about it.

I guess he don't want the same
trouble he had over at Benton.

Let's go.

And it couldn't have been easy.

Not the stuff they write
books about.

You haven't seen a
marshal teaspoon hunter
around, have you?

I want to thank you boys
for what you done.
I know it was dangerous,

and it couldn't have been easy.

And maybe I'll read about you.

Don't count on it.

Don't be too sure. You never
know when something
exciting's gonna happen.

Yeah, kinda.

Well, he'd better hurry it up
if he's going to
catch the hanging.

It's scheduled for tomorrow.

Pike hangs at noon,
no ifs, ands,
or buts about it.

And why is that?

I guess he don't want the same
trouble he had over at Benton.

I don't know about you
but I'm headed out.

And after going through
all that trouble of
getting pike here?

I don't want to
see him hanged.
Seen enough hangings.

What are we going to do now?

I don't know about you
but I'm headed out.

Where I come from,
the shortest distance between
two points is a straight line.

If this shortcut is your idea
of a straight line, you're
a constipated snake.

I don't want to
see him hanged.
Seen enough hangings.

Nothing but bad memories
dangling at the end of a rope.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

Yeah? Yeah, I guess
you do. Well, maybe
I'll see you around.

Yeah, maybe.

And maybe I'll read about you.

It's all clear. It looks
like we out-foxed 'em.

Don't be too sure. You never
know when something
exciting's gonna happen.

It's all clear. It looks
like we out-foxed 'em.

Said the chicken in the Coop.

- What?
- Redfern!

Take cover!

Cody!

Where I come from,
the shortest distance between
two points is a straight line.

If this shortcut is your idea
of a straight line, you're
a constipated snake.

It's nothing.
I counted 10 of them.

Five of them over there.

Rest of 'em circling around
behind. Where's redfern?

Kid! Get Cody back.

Get up. Get up.

Well, the rest of them must
just about be ready to hit us.

Boys, we're going to play
a little game.
It's called possum.

Rest of 'em circling around
behind. Where's redfern?

Over there, lyin' low.

How bad is it?

It's nothing.
I counted 10 of them.

Give me your gun.

What did frank pike tell you?
To kill me if I didn't
bring him his brother?

Boys, we're going to play
a little game.
It's called possum.

When I die, you die.
Cover me.

Well, the rest of them must
just about be ready to hit us.

About the only thing
we can do. Let you kill us.

Give me your gun.

What are we supposed to do?

Just do what I do.

If you ain't mighty
convincing,
then I'll do you for real.

What did frank pike tell you?
To kill me if I didn't
bring him his brother?

You and anyone
who came with you.

What are we supposed to do?

Just do what I do.

You better play this good.

I got them all.

Redfern's got them.

What are you going to
do now, hunter?

About the only thing
we can do. Let you kill us.

Redfern?

Bravo! You're real talented.

It's over. I got all of them.

Go to the fort!

Redfern's got them.

It's over. I got all of them.

But you don't tell me
where pike took Amanda,

you just made your final speech.

Redfern?

Go to the fort!

And tell frank they
took his brother to
fort laramie to hang.

C'mon, hickok.
There's no way we could
of figured on the governor

Don't tell me that's
the sharpshooter.

The shooter, yes.
Sharpshooter?

Bravo! You're real talented.

Moving up the hanging.
We did what we were
supposed to do.

Hickok?

The shooter, yes.
Sharpshooter?

C'mon, hickok.
There's no way we could
of figured on the governor

moving up the hanging.
We did what we were
supposed to do.

Rider coming in.

All right, get to laramie.
If my brother's already dead,

you claim the body and Bury him.

But not before you take
the gold coin like this
from around his neck.

They got your brother
to fort laramie.

Did they hang him yet?

Later today.

What about hunter?

We're riding out.
Spread the word.

But not before you take
the gold coin like this
from around his neck.

I don't know.

What about hunter?

He's on his way here.

All right, get to laramie.
If my brother's already dead,

I don't know.

You do it. Without the other
half of this coin,

we're never going to find
the gold he buried
in that mission.

Hunter double-crossed me.

You just played him as badly
as you play cards.

Ronald, we're moving out.

All right.

Hunter double-crossed me.

I don't understand it.
You know, that arm don't
look too good.

You sure you don't
want to sit this one out?

We gonna leave him here?

Yeah, he ain't going nowhere.

A couple of guards
is all I can see.

I don't understand it.
You know, that arm don't
look too good.

If anything happens
to my little brother,
I'll kill you both.

You sure you don't
want to sit this one out?

Never was much for sitting,
teaspoon. Let's go.

Hey.

How you doing?

She's anywhere,
she's in there.
Cody, go around back.

Don't let anyone
or anything out.

Kid, see if you can get
up on that roof.

Have you got any last words?
Sir, any last words?

She's anywhere,
she's in there.
Cody, go around back.

Bringing him out.

- Right there.
- Wait.

Have you got any last words?
Sir, any last words?

Good riddance, pike.

Yeah.

Danny, go on home.
Go on. Go.
Kids, go on home.

Hickok.

You can't do this.

Stand back.

Son, it's already done.

Well, that does it for pike.

Wonder why they broke camp.

Must have seen we
didn't have pike.

Well, that does it for pike.

Yeah, and Amanda, too.

She's not here.

What are we going
to do now, teaspoon?

Mission south of here.

Got to get to 'em.

Yeah, we'll split up.

She's not here.

At least there's a chance
Amanda's still alive.

Son, I wish I was
sure about that.

Teaspoon, Cody, over here!

The hell happened?

The renegades got him.

Either your eyes or that
letter are gonna wear out soon

if you don't give
one of 'em a rest.

Must have seen we
didn't have pike.

At least there's a chance
Amanda's still alive.

You all right, Cody?

Yes.

Whoever finds her,
go get help from fort laramie.

The renegades got him.

Redfern, where did
pike take Amanda?

That way one of us
might have a chance
to get through to Amanda.

That's one against an
army of renegades.

An army less one now.

Thing is, I should be with them.

Whatever they're going
through, I should be
going through, too.

Redfern, where did
pike take Amanda?

They took her to pike's camp.

Whoever finds her,
go get help from fort laramie.

Kid probably talked them
into leaving me behind.

I'm sure he did no such thing.

He practically admits it
right here in this letter.

Yeah, we'll split up.

That way one of us
might have a chance
to get through to Amanda.

Don't worry about them,
Lou, they're gonna be fine.

And be so infuriating
at the same time?

Some people just
got a knack for it.

Let's get to the horses.

Half of it is filled with him
telling me how glad he is
I'm not with 'em.

And then the other half is
him telling me how much
he still cares about me.

He practically admits it
right here in this letter.

Half of it is filled with him
telling me how glad he is
I'm not with 'em.

If you don't give
one of 'em a rest.

Guess worrying about things
don't make 'em any better.

Cody and hickok and...

Mmm-mmm.

- I guess you're right.
- Mmm-hmm.

I know.

Ike said the same thing
when he rode in this evening.

He said he'd be waiting on you.

How can someone be so special

and be so infuriating
at the same time?

I...

I got to go after 'em.

I guess.

You know the funny thing is,

it's only the ones that you
really care about that can
get to you like that.

And then the other half is
him telling me how much
he still cares about me.

It's only the ones that you
really care about that can
get to you like that.

But they're all like that.

Cody and hickok and...

He said he'd be waiting on you.

Go on.

Rachel?

Too bad there's not a
preacher around to give you
your last rights.

You're not gonna kill me.

You see as far as
pleasure's concerned,
I'll take what I want,

when I want it.

That isn't gonna get you
your brother back.

Damn it, frank,
he's not my father!

He's a two-bit lawman
with a tin badge for a heart.

Well then, for your sake,
you'd better hope
it turns to gold.

Amanda, there is nothing
in the world you could do
to convince me

you'd turn against
your own father.

Damn it, frank,
he's not my father!

You see as far as
pleasure's concerned,
I'll take what I want,

you're not gonna kill me.

- I'm not?
- No.

There's no profit in it,
and certainly no pleasure.

That isn't gonna get you
your brother back.

Hunter will never
turn him over to you
without my help.

Amanda, there is nothing
in the world you could do
to convince me

Tie her up.

Well then, for your sake,
you'd better hope
it turns to gold.

Thanks for your
help with the hole.

You want to help me
with the box?

What the hell?

Thanks for your
help with the hole.

You want to help me
with the box?

Give me a second alone,
so I can pay my last respects.

What the hell?

Why didn't you open
it up while you were
down there, buck?

It's bad medicine.

So what does that prove?

It proves that there was
no body inside.

The sand was put in there
to make it the same weight.

I saw the gravediggers
with pike's casket.

There was sand
leaking out of it.

So what does that prove?

I never should have
listened to you.

Let her go, buck.
We've got more important
problems on our hands.

What do you mean,
pike ain't dead?

I saw the gravediggers
with pike's casket.

The sand was put in there
to make it the same weight.

Jane, we all saw pike hung.

I don't care what we saw.
Pike's alive!

It's all clear.

Why didn't you open
it up while you were
down there, buck?

Well, I guess there's
only one way to solve this.

Let her go, buck.
We've got more important
problems on our hands.

How are we gonna
find out who did this?

I know who did it.
A rat named Sidney.

Where's the guard?

Find her!

I know who did it.
A rat named Sidney.

All right.

We'll have to play
our ace in the hole.

Where's the guard?

Your brother didn't die
in laramie.

- Where is he?
- No one knows.

- Where is he?
- No one knows.

It's hunter.

Get some men on that wall!

Yeah, go!

We'll have to play
our ace in the hole.

Amanda.

Looking for somebody?

Easy there, boy.

Amanda.

Don't suppose you'd like
to talk about this.

Just gonna tie you up
over here, boy.

Don't suppose you'd like
to talk about this.

Cody! No!

Real slow-like.

Howdy.

Damn, teaspoon.
They really worked you over
good, didn't they?

Don't matter.
I overheard 'em talking.

Pike's still alive.

That was the saddest story
I ever heard.

Yeah, it's pretty sad
to me, too.

Yeah, well...

Who could blame him
for wanting to hang
the man himself?

Howdy.

First one to draw
is the first one to die.

Drop your weapons.

Real slow-like.

Who could blame him
for wanting to hang
the man himself?

You let hack hang pike?

Under my hood.
Least I could do.

That one back there?
He had the drop on me
but I dropped him instead.

I heard the shots.
Saw you and the renegades
on the way here.

Pike's still alive.

I felt real sorry for him,
the way pike wiped out
his whole family.

You boys out of trouble.

Damn, teaspoon.
They really worked you over
good, didn't they?

Hack? Hack.
I don't think I ever met him.

It's good to see you boys.

What happened?

That one back there?
He had the drop on me
but I dropped him instead.

I wonder what
the going price is
on hangmen these days.

Guess we'll have to ask hack.

Looks like he already
bought himself one.

I heard the shots.
Saw you and the renegades
on the way here.

You know, I ain't been
too good at keeping

you boys out of trouble.

I wonder what
the going price is
on hangmen these days.

Hack? Hack.
I don't think I ever met him.

But what about the kangaroo kid?

Ooh, yeah.
Sure, I remember him.

Nicest fella you'd ever
want to meet.

Look, he gave me
one of his books.

He even signed it for me.

Being a hangman
makes you kind of numb.

That was the saddest story
I ever heard.

He even signed it for me.

That's nice.
That's real special.

Well, I thought it was.

Look, do you mind
telling us when was
the last time you saw him?

Jane.
He took Jane's horse?

Yeah. She was kind of
upset when she come in.

Well, then she decided
to take yours.

I... told me you
owed it to her.

Under my hood.
Least I could do.

Excuse me.

Look, do you mind
telling us when was
the last time you saw him?

Yeah, he came in yesterday,
before the hanging.

Picked up his wagon,

'Cause we're gonna be
heading out soon.

I'll see what I can do.

Oh, ah, you...
You mind doing me a favor

when you catch up
to that friend of yours?

I... told me you
owed it to her.

She's headed up to pike.

Can you saddle us up
another one?

'Cause we're gonna be
heading out soon.

Said the old man broke his back

and he needed
something to help him
get out of bed.

Well, yeah. We will.

How that back brace worked out.

Back brace?

Yeah, we...
We made one up
for his grandfather.

Said the old man broke his back

Yeah, and I told you
I was gonna shoot you

if you don't tell me
where the money is.

I can do better
than that.
I can show ya.

No problem.

So, that's how he did it.

Picked up his wagon,

along with that pretty
little bay that your
lady friend come in on.

Jane.
He took Jane's horse?

I can do better
than that.
I can show ya.

Who's minding the store?

Glad you both made it.

- You shouldn't have left me.
- Wasn't my idea, Lou.

Mmm. Didn't think so.

- Where we headed?
- After pike.

So, that's how he did it.

The man's got imagination.

He's got pike, too.

Well, like I told you,
deputy, there ain't nobody
gonna hang me.

When you catch up
to that friend of yours?

- What's that?
- Have him tell me

how that back brace worked out.

Telling her she can come along.

Why, 'cause it'll make
the kid angry?

No, because of where
we're going,

and the odds that we'll
make it out of there alive.

I missed you, boys.

Jimmy, I think you're making
a big mistake

telling her she can come along.

Who's minding the store?

When the house is on fire,
you don't worry about
saving the furniture.

Glad you both made it.

And the odds that we'll
make it out of there alive.

Well, she's family
and she can carry her own.

Well, like I told you,
deputy, there ain't nobody
gonna hang me.

Yeah, and I told you
I was gonna shoot you

Well, she's family
and she can carry her own.

Yeah, well family or not,
I say she stays.

Well, I say she goes.

You're right, Jimmy.
Lou is family.

We're gonna need some
extra powder and shot,

maybe some hard tack, too.

I'll get it.

Here and the mission,
so let's split up.

- Where we headed?
- After pike.

- But I thought...
- So did we.

We're gonna need some
extra powder and shot,

I got to side with Noah
on this one.

All right.

Me and my brother
used to come here
all the time.

You're right, Jimmy.
Lou is family.

But I think we owe it
to ourselves to make sure

one of us survives this.

I got to side with Noah
on this one.

All right.

Well, we're using
the buckboard,
so that'll help.

Still got a lot of ground
to cover between

here and the mission,
so let's split up.

Gonna have to climb down
and get it.

Then you better get started.

Me and my brother
used to come here
all the time.

Kind of like old home.

Very sweet.
Where's the money?

Down there, deputy.

Lot of loose rocks.

Long way down.

Have to undo these, first.

Much obliged, deputy.

Growing tired of waiting, pike.

Me too, deputy.

Have a nice bath.

Oh, they rode on out of here
right after they talked to ya.

Do you want me
to saddle your horse?

Did they say where
they were going?

They was asking about
Emory pike's hangout.

Old mission, south of here.

I tried to warn 'em
about going there, but...

Thanks, um...
I'll take my horse now.

I don't know what's
going on in that mission,

Food looks good.

Maybe if...
Maybe if I could

eat something,
I could get my strength back.

Jimmy? Buck?

Oh, they rode on out of here
right after they talked to ya.

No, no... hold...
Didn't mean to scare you.

I just need...

No, no... hold...
Didn't mean to scare you.

I don't know what's
going on in that mission,

but an awful lot
of folks sure want
to get there.

You know, when I first
come up here, I didn't...

Food looks good.

What do you say, Jane?

You like surprises?

I didn't recognize you
as a girl.

What a nice surprise.

Get some rest.

Eat something,
I could get my strength back.

You're the only person
that I ever wanted to die,

and I hate you for that.

Oh, I got news for ya, Jane.

You're just like your daddy.

What a nice surprise.

What do you say, Jane?

Why'd you have to kill him?

Seemed like
a good idea at the time.

You're the only person
that I ever wanted to die,

The only question is,

how comfortable
are you gonna make me

before I go?

Don't move, pike.

You and your friends
sure are a dedicated
bunch of boys.

So, Jane,

I guess you don't like
surprises, after all.

You and your friends
sure are a dedicated
bunch of boys.

Why don't you give me the gun?

This has gone on long enough.

Benton couldn't kill him,

why'd you have to kill him?

But I happen to think enough
innocent people have died.

Now it's time for me
to give it a try.

- I'm not gonna tell you
he don't deserve to die...
- Good.

But I am gonna tell you,
if you kill him

you're gonna get your wish.

The only question is,

Go ahead.

Pull the trigger.

But I happen to think enough
innocent people have died.

Benton couldn't kill him,

fort laramie couldn't kill him.

Now it's time for me
to give it a try.

Why don't you give me the gun?

But I am gonna tell you,
if you kill him

you'll also be killing
the person his brother's
holding hostage.

Now, if you can live with that,

Come on, sweetie!

I do believe you owe me
an apology.

I'll be waiting for it
in my room.

Probably would have
missed him anyhow.

I had to run away
or he would've killed me.

Trust me now?

I do believe you owe me
an apology.

You said there was nothing
I could do to convince you

that I was on your side.

Because I figured frank
would trust me

if I came back here.

Give me a chance
to warn teaspoon.

Lou!

No.

How about this?

I had to run away
or he would've killed me.

She works for teaspoon.

No, you don't.

Let's get one thing
straight, Amanda.

I know you escaped,
and I saw you ride back here
all by your lonesome.

Because I figured frank
would trust me

give me a chance
to warn teaspoon.

- I don't believe you.
- Lou...

I'd never hurt any of you,

least of all teaspoon.

Lou!

Lou, this is Amanda.
Believe me.

What are we gonna do?

And what if he is, teaspoon?

Well, he'll head
for the mission,

try and hook up
with his brother.

- She came after me.
- Liar!

She said she was gonna kill you.

It's not
what you think.
I know what I saw.

No, you don't.

She said she was gonna kill you.

Should have killed you
when I had the chance.

What are you gonna do with her?

Cody and me,
we've been thinking.

Maybe we ought to
head out to the mission
on our own.

What you talking about?

You got a lot of healing to do

that a day's ride
ain't gonna help.

You know...

Least of all teaspoon.

Don't you know that?

Frank was about to kill me.

Lou, this is Amanda.
Believe me.

Try and hook up
with his brother.

It's the only thing he can do.

I... teaspoon...

Cody and me,
we've been thinking.

You know...

I've been calling you "boys"
ever since you signed up
for the express.

The two of you, Jimmy...
Hell, even Lou.

But...

Compared to an old dog like me,

what are you gonna do with her?

I just pray pike's still alive.

I don't think I ever took
a moment to sit back

and realize you've
grown into men.

You done made me proud.

Thanks.

Good men.

Heading out with me,
fighting the odds
we've fought,

you done made me proud.

What you talking about?

Well, those renegades,
they beat you up pretty bad.

You got a lot of healing to do

I'm gonna stay behind.

Come on, boys!

You two okay?

Better than him.
He lost a lot of blood.

And realize you've
grown into men.

Good men.

Is he gonna make it?

For Amanda's sake, I hope so.

Compared to an old dog like me,

you're still boys,
and there ain't no way in hell

I'm gonna stay behind.

She knows nothing.

She's worth twice as much
as Amanda.

Teaspoon may care about Amanda,

but they all care about her.

For Amanda's sake, I hope so.

Mission's a couple
of miles away, teaspoon.

Look, teaspoon.
Over there.

Jimmy, I thought I told you
to take pike to fort laramie
for hanging.

But she could be valuable.

You have one hostage,
why do you need more?

She's worth twice as much
as Amanda.

Look, teaspoon.
Over there.

But they all care about her.

And hack's in the middle of it.

Rider's been spotted
coming this way.

- Is it my brother?
- No, it's one of hunter's men.

Is this gonna be a long story?

And hack's in the middle of it.

Jimmy, I thought I told you
to take pike to fort laramie
for hanging.

I did, teaspoon.

You did?

I figure there's about
20 men to our, uh...

Three.

Six don't sound much better.

Try seven.

It's always been lucky for me.

Give me the girl.

As soon as the kid gets here,
we'll make the trade.

So we're not going to take him
back to fort laramie?

He ain't going to make it.

Hold on, I came to help.

Yeah, we told teaspoon about
you snaking pike.

You think that was
supposed to help?

Three.

As far as they know.

See boys, that's our
ace in the hole.

You think that was
supposed to help?

I took pike because he said
he'd tell me where he hid the
money he stole from Benton.

You wear a badge,
for god's sake!

I'm talking to you.

I figured, uh, you know, if I
got the money I could return
it to the people of Benton.

It's always been lucky for me.

Hold on, I came to help.

He ain't going to make it.

That's why I'm willing to
hand him over.

What if they pull something
while we make the exchange?

There ain't no ifs about it.

I figured, uh, you know, if I
got the money I could return
it to the people of Benton.

So the town wouldn't fall.
If not,

I could bring pike in.

And what if he got away?

Yeah, you better not!

Because nobody can make up
a story that stupid.

Son, we could use another
gun if you're willing.

Mmm. Kangaroo kid
rides again, huh?

That was the plan, yes.

I believe him.

Won't let you down.

Yeah, you better not!

Got a message for frank pike.

Tell him it's from
teaspoon hunter.

You wear a badge,
for god's sake!

How could you help him escape?

I'm frank pike.

And what if he got away?

Heh.

Didn't think that far ahead.

Mmm. Kangaroo kid
rides again, huh?

I believe him.

Why?

Because nobody can make up
a story that stupid.

Well, if you kill Amanda...

Now who said anything
about Amanda?

We'll bring you your
brother, you bring us Amanda.

Sounds simple enough.

You be careful.

I'm frank pike.

We're ready to make
the exchange.

We'll bring you your
brother, you bring us Amanda.

Got a message for frank pike.

- Come on!
- Come on!

Ah, now, I wouldn't
try that if I were you.

You be careful.

You try anything
and the girl dies.

Well, if you kill Amanda...

Kid's coming.

- Kid, we've got
bigger problems.
- Like what?

Pike's dead.

I don't care if pike died.

Get him over here.

Kid!

Never know who might
get caught in the crossfire.

I don't care if pike died.

I want to know what Lou
is doing in the
middle of this.

She showed up in laramie.

Tell me the truth, Jimmy.

Kid, we gave him the slip.

He did a fine job.

Kid!

Kid. Kid, what the hell
are you doing?

- They got Lou!
- I couldn't stop her!

- Kid, we've got
bigger problems.
- Like what?

Understand?

You've been closer to that
mission than anyone else.

Kid, we've got to
get inside that mission.

We're going to get Amanda,
we're going to get Lou

and I've got the feeling
you want to help us.

But you've got to set aside

just wanted her to come with us.

Damn you!

That's enough!

Kid, we've got to
get inside that mission.

I'll do my best.

What are we going to
do now that pike's dead,
teaspoon?

Pike deserved to die.

She showed up in laramie.

And you didn't tell
her to go back?

Kid, we gave him the slip.

You've been closer to that
mission than anyone else.

Can you tell us
something about it?

I'll do my best.

Pike deserved to die.

That don't mean he
still can't help us.

Tell me the truth, Jimmy.

Did you want her to go back
to Sweetwater, or did you want
her to go with you?

Just wanted her to come with us.

But what he's done in the
last few days has made
me respect him.

What you went through at the
hands of Ramirez made me
respect her.

These people cannot be
deceived easily.
They know you.

A demonstration.

She'll be the first to die
if they try and trick us.

And you'll be the second.

Why are you doing this?

A demonstration.

But you've got to set aside

whatever you've got
going on with Jimmy
until we get that done!

Understand?

And you'll be the second.

What are you talking about?

Coming back with my coin
was brilliant.

And turning her over to me,
that was very good.

Too good to be true.

Frank!

I've never met teaspoon hunter.

But what he's done in the
last few days has made
me respect him.

And that's who they risked
their lives to rescue.

- They're fools!
- No!

That don't mean he
still can't help us.

I'm a fool.

Riders!

Just loyal.

Like you.

You see?

They're men of their word.

Regrettably for you, I'm not!

Coming back with my coin
was brilliant.

It was just brilliant.

And turning her over to me,
that was very good.

Regrettably for you, I'm not!

Ah!

Open the gates.

Open the gate!

You see?

These people cannot be
deceived easily.
They know you.

The real you.

And that's who they risked
their lives to rescue.

Hold on, buddy. We
ain't through with you yet!

Ooh!

Ah!

Four of them, one of them's
your brother.

Open the gates.

I just hope we give
the others enough time.

Hold on, buddy. We
ain't through with you yet!

Looks like it's working.

Shut the gates!

Kill the girl!

- Kid!
- Cody!

A graveyard. Ain't exactly
my first choice of refuge.

At least mine lived
longer than yours.

He's up in the church.
I'll take him.

What are we going
to do to help 'em?

How 'bout a little fireworks?

He's up in the church.
I'll take him.

Yeah, let's go.
Let's go!

I was sure I was going to die.

You just don't let up, do you?

I'm naughty by nature.

At least mine lived
longer than yours.

Why don't you remember that,
hickok, for when I interview
you for my book?

You just don't let up, do you?

Where's Lou?

Went off that way with Amanda!

I was sure I was going to die.

So did I.

- Cover our flank!
- Cover our flank!

Head back,
take care of the horses!

Kid!

Come on, we've
got to get out of here.

Frank pike's going to pay.

For one of us, at least.

I guess working together has
it's advantages, huh?

We've got to get
you out of here.

Ah, I've got to get to frank...

Get back!
Take care of the horses!
Back!

Let's get out of here, kid.

Kid!

Oh, my god!

I'm all right. I'm all right!

Come on, we've
got to get out of here.

Ah!

Teaspoon. Thank god!

Ah!

That was for Lou.

Let's get out of here, kid.

Stay here.

Be careful, I'll get the horses.

Ah!

Teaspoon. Thank god!

The gates!

Get down!

And you played
a losing hand, frank.

The game's over.

Boys, let's get out of here!

You're going
to be all right, kid.

It's you i'm worried about, Lou.

- Kid...
- You never should've come.

The game's over.

I told you in that letter.

You... you told me
what you wanted, kid.

But what you and I've got,

well...

What we've all got is stronger.

The rest of us got to help out.

You're going to be okay?

- Kid...
- You never should've come.

I told you in that letter.

Boys, let's get out of here!

Okay.

It's hard to say that
you're glad someone's dead.

You're going to be okay?

Just grazed. Could've
been worse.

I think I'll make it.

Jimmy, no need.

If anybody should be
sorry, it's me.

I think I'll make it.

- Well, I'm sorry about...
- No.

Jimmy, no need.

What an interesting
necklace, may I see it?

It's time you stop letting
Emory pike cloud
the memory of your father.

Maybe you should start
thinking about the man
you loved

instead of the one you hated.

We're a family.

And when one of us
is in trouble,

the rest of us got to help out.

Guess it was his lucky charm.

Didn't bring him much
luck now, did it?

Guess not.

The people of Benton could
sure use a little luck.

Better be going.

What an interesting
necklace, may I see it?

Sure.

I have a feeling things
are gonna work out
just fine in the end.

Well, I hope so.

The people of Benton could
sure use a little luck.

Got it off Emory pike.

Guess it was his lucky charm.

It's hard to say that
you're glad someone's dead.

But, I kind of feel that...

It's time you stop letting
Emory pike cloud
the memory of your father.

Yeah, another pile of manure
for someone else to peddle.

I have a feeling things
are gonna work out
just fine in the end.

Didn't you always want me
to give you the time of day?

Kangaroo kid found himself
another story?

I think you should ask
hickok that.

A keepsake to remember me by.

It belonged to my father.

Only if you'll accept
one from me.

Maybe it'll give you
some more luck than pike, huh?

Better be going.

Hack.

Here.

A keepsake to remember me by.

I think you should ask
hickok that.

Yeah, another pile of manure
for someone else to peddle.

Maybe it'll give you
some more luck than pike, huh?

I'm sure it will.

Thank you.

You better take this.

Hack?

Hack!

I can't, no.

Why not?

Didn't you always want me
to give you the time of day?

Are you ready?

All right, move it out.

A map to our town's gold.

Thank you.

You
could've just come to visit me
like I've been asking you to.

I'd like to, but,

I think I've been away from
Sweetwater too long.

We could take care of things!

Like we always do.

Yeah, we can cover for you.

Like we always do!

What's that?

We're together, ain't we?

You
could've just come to visit me
like I've been asking you to.

I think I've been away from
Sweetwater too long.

You should spend
some more time with Amanda,
teaspoon!

We could take care of things!

What is it?

A map to our town's gold.

Well, Amanda,
at least something good's
come out of this.

What's that?

Ha! Well,
maybe I will join you, Amanda!

Like we always do!

Just deputize us like
you always do.

Ha! Well,
maybe I will join you, Amanda!
