I MEAN, YOU'VE SEEN HIM, BUT YOU NEVER KNEW WHO HE WAS.
YOU'VE CHEERED FOR HIM AND CRIED FOR HIM, WOMEN HAVE WANTED TO DIE FOR HIM.
BUT DID HE EVER GET ANY CREDIT? OR THE GIRL? NO.
HE WAS WHAT WE CALL A STUNTMAN.
AND THE REASON I'M TALKIN' SO FONDLY ABOUT HIM IS-- WELL, BECAUSE IT'S ME, COLT SEAVERS.
ANYWAY, PICTURE WORK ISN'T WALL-TO-WALL EMPLOYMENT.
SO MAYBE YOU WONDER HOW A GUY KEEPS HIS HEAD TOGETHER.
WELL, ONE WAY IS TO WAIT BY THE PHONE AND WAIT AND WAIT.
THE OTHER IS TO TAKE AN OCCASIONAL JOB FOR THE COURT SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WHERE A MAN IS CONSIDERED INNOCEN UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
UNFORTUNATELY, SOMETIMES A LO OF THESE PEOPLE GET OUT OF JAIL ON WHAT WE CALL BAIL.
AND THEY RUN LIKE HELL.
THAT'S WHERE I COME IN.
I SOMETIMES PICK UP RENT MONEY TRYIN' TO FIND THEM AND BRING THEM BACK TO JUSTICE.
[ Country ] EVERY TIME I THINK I'VE PUT YOU IN MY REARVIEW MIRROR I REALIZE THAT OBJECTS ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR [ Continues, Indistinct ] THANK YOU, HONEY.
[ Chuckles ] CAN I GET YOU ANOTHER DRINK, MR.
MATHEWS? NO, HONEY, I DON'T THINK SO.
I THINK I'M GONNA GO ON HOME.
CAN YOU TELL MY DRIVER I'M READY TO GO, PLEASE? UH, SURE THING.
MR.
MATHEWS, DID YOU GE A CHANCE TO LISTEN TO THA TAPE I GAVE YOU? YES, I DID, AND IT'S GOOD.
I'M GONNA GIVE I TO A COMPOSER I KNOW.
YOU JUST MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING THERE, SWEETHEART.
NOW WOULD YOU TELL DUANE I'M READY TO LEAVE, PLEASE? - UM, SURE THING.
- [ Man Whooping ] [ Continues ] YOUR BOSS WANTS TO SEE YOU, DUANE.
[ Gasps ] GOD, DUANE, - WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU? - BUT THE BOSS WANTS ME.
SO HE CAN WAIT FIVE MINUTES.
I'M NOT THROUGH TALKING TO YOU.
OH, DIXIE, YOU KNOW HOW MAD HE GETS AT ME.
I DON'T WANT HIM MAD AT ME.
WHO'S MORE IMPORTANT, ME OR HIM? WELL, YOU.
CAN I GO NOW? GO AHEAD, YOU BIG FOOL.
I'LL TALK TO YOU LATER.
BYE, DIXIE.
[ Chuckles ] MR.
MATHEWS.
YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE TO BE KEPT WAITING, DUANE.
I'M SORRY, SIR.
AH, THAT'S OKAY.
BRING THE LIMO AROUND BACK, WOULD YOU? YES, SIR.
[ Continues ] WHAT ARE YOU DOIN' HERE, KENNY? YOU OWE ME, ROBERT.
AND I TOLD YOU I DON'T OWE YOU ANYTHING.
THEN I GUESS I'M GONNA HAVE TO CALL THE PRESS AND HAVE 'EM EXPOSE THE LEGENDARY ROBERT MATHEWS FOR WHAT HE REALLY IS-- A TOTAL FRAUD.
WHAT HAPPENED, BOSS? HE TRIED TO ROB ME.
- LOOKS LIKE HE'S HURT REAL BAD.
- [ Ballad ] HE'S STILL BREATHIN'.
I'LL CALL AN AMBULANCE.
THIS IS GONNA LOOK BAD FOR ME, DUANE, EVEN IF IT WAS SELF-DEFENSE.
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE WITH YOU, BOSS.
LISTEN TO ME, DUANE.
I CAN'T AFFORD THIS KIND OF PUBLICITY, NOT WITH A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT - AND THE MOTION PICTURE PAR I'M UP FOR.
- IF I'D ONLY BEEN HERE.
YOU CAN HELP ME, DUANE.
YEAH.
YOU CAN HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS.
- I'LL DO ANYTHING, BOSS.
- OKAY.
WHEN THE POLICE COME, I WAN YOU TO TELL 'EM YOU DID IT.
TELL 'EM YOU WERE PROTECTING ME.
HE ATTACKED ME, AND YOU TOOK CARE OF HIM.
[ Duane ] WHAT IF HE TELLS THE POLICE THE TRUTH? DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT.
IT'S HIS WORD AGAINST OURS.
BESIDES, I'LL MAKE I WORTH HIS WHILE TO SEE IT MY WAY.
- MONEY ALWAYS WORKS.
- I DON'T KNOW.
DIDN'T I TAKE YOU IN WHEN YOU HAD NOTHIN'? DIDN'T I GIVE YOU A JOB AND A PLACE TO LIVE? DIDN'T I LET YOU DRIVE A BIG, FINE CAR AND GO TO ALL THOSE FANCY PLACES WITH ME? I KNOW.
AND I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE.
YOU'RE RIGHT, DUANE.
LOOK.
THIS GUY'S GONNA WAKE UP WITH A HEADACHE.
THE WORST POSSIBLE THING THAT COULD HAPPEN-- YOU'LL GET A SUSPENDED SENTENCE FOR ASSAULT.
- [ Exhales ] OKAY, BOSS.
- THAT-A-BOY, DUANE.
I WON'T FORGET THIS.
[ Tires Squealing ] [ Engine Revving ] [ Applause ] THAT PROBABLY LOOKED LIKE I MADE IT THROUGH THA WITHOUT A SCRATCH, DIDN'T IT? LET ME TELL YOU WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
TIRES BLEW, THE FRONT SUSPENSION COLLAPSED, BACK AXLE BROKE, I BRUISED MY RIBS AND THEN I ALMOST DROWNED.
STUNTS MAY LOOK EASY, BUT THEY'RE VERY, VERY DANGEROUS.
SO I WANT TO IMPRESS ON YOU HOW STUPID IT IS TO TRY A STUNT WITHOU FIRST BEING TRAINED TO DO SO.
SO IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON JUMPING YOUR BICYCLE OVER SOME TRASH CANS OR-- [ Laughing ] PLANNING TO ROLL YOUR FATHER'S STATION WAGON, FORGET IT.
YOU MAY JUST END UP DESTROYING YOUR VEHICLE AND YOURSELF.
YES, SON? YOU GOT A QUESTION? HOW DO YOU BECOME A STUNTMAN? WELL, FIRST OF ALL, YOU HAVE TO BE A VERY GOOD ATHLETE.
PARTICIPATING IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ATHLETIC PROGRAMS HELPS.
OF COURSE, PHYSICAL ABILITY'S ONLY HALF OF IT.
YOU HAVE TO KNOW A LITTLE BI ABOUT PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS.
[ All Groaning ] WE DON'T JUST FLY CARS THROUGH THE AIR OR JUMP OFF HIGH BUILDINGS WITHOUT KNOWING EXACTLY WHERE WE'RE GONNA LAND.
AND TO KNOW THAT, WE HAVE TO USE A LITTLE PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS.
THEN YOU HAVE TO FIND A GOOD WORKING STUNTMAN THAT'S WILLING TO TRAIN YOU.
AND IT JUST DOESN' HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.
IT TAKES YEARS.
- ARE YOU TRAINING ANYBODY NOW? - YES.
MY COUSIN.
AND HE'S A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT.
HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN COLLEGES AND HE'S BEEN WORKING WITH ME FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW.
AND HE'S COMING ALONG REALLY WELL.
[ Howie ] BIG JACK SAID THIS WOULD BE EASY, COLT.
[ Colt ] SHE ALWAYS SAYS THA WHEN SHE'S IN TROUBLE, KID.
[ Colt ] I TAKE IT SINCE THIS KENNY TIPPET GUY DIED, DUANE SMITH'S BOND'S BEEN REVOKED.
THIS MORNING.
THE BAIL HAD BEEN SE FOR A CHARGE OF ASSAULT.
WHEN TIPPET DIED, THE D.
A.
RULED IT MURDER TWO.
SO DUANE SKIPPED? WELL, I REALLY DON'T KNOW.
I TRIED TO CONTACT HIM, BUT NOBODY'S SEEN HIM.
OH, HE SKIPPED.
WHAT'S THE CONNECTION BETWEEN DUANE SMITH AND MATHEWS? WELL, UH, DUANE DRIVES FOR MATHEWS.
WHAT ABOUT TIPPET? I REALLY DON'T KNOW.
DUANE AND MATHEWS SAY THEY'VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE.
- WHO IS THIS GUY MATHEWS ANYWAY? - WHAT, ARE YOU KIDDING? HE'S ONE OF THE HOTTES COUNTRY-WESTERN SINGERS AROUND.
OH, I DON'T LISTEN TO MUCH COUNTRY MUSIC.
YOU NEVER HEARD "SHE'S A 10 WITH THE LIGHTS OUT"? NO.
WHAT ABOUT "SHE BROKE MY HEART, SO I BROKE HER JAW"? - SORRY.
NO.
- YOU CALL YOURSELF EDUCATED? I GOT A TAPE OF HIS IN THE TRUCK.
I'LL PLAY I FOR YOU ON THE WAY TO MATHEWS'S.
BY THE WAY, WE'LL NEED A PICTURE OF THIS DUANE SMITH SO WE CAN BOTH KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE.
OKAY.
NOW YOU WON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THIS CASE, COLT.
JUST HAVE A LOT OF FUN, YOU BOYS.
[ Mathews ] LAST NIGH YOU TIPTOED IN AT 2:00 A.
M.
WELL, YOU KISSED ME CHEEK AND YOU SOFTLY SAID I LOVE YOU, BABE AND MY NOSE MADE ME WONDER SO I'LL HAVE TO ASK HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WEARING AFTERSHAVE [ With Chorus ] I SMELL A LIE I SMELL A LIE YOU CAN'T WASH AWAY THAT LOVE LOOK IN YOUR EYE YOUR PASSION SHOWS IN THOSE WRINKLED CLOTHES DON'T TELL ME NO I SMELL A LIE [ Fades ] HOWDY.

SEAVERS.
OPEN UP, GREG.
[ Gate Rattling ] HOWDY.
HOWDY.
MR.
MATHEWS IS IN THE RECORDING STUDIO.
HE TOLD ME TO SEND YOU ON IN.
WHERE IS IT? IT'S IN THE BARN.
[ Colt ] THANK YOU.
HE'S SURE GOT A LO OF PROTECTION, DOESN'T HE? WELL, BIG STARS ARE GETTING THREATENED A LOT LATELY.
I GUESS AFTER WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT TIPPET FELLA, MATHEWS THOUGHT HE NEEDED IT.
I CAN'T SAY AS I BLAME HIM.
AND I FILL THE GAP IN LAST NIGHT'S MYSTERY CAN YOU IMAGINE MY SURPRISE WHEN CHARLIE FLICKED A BIC THAT I GAVE TO YOU FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY [ All ] I SMELL A LIE I SMELL A LIE YOU CAN'T WASH AWAY THAT LOVE LOOK IN YOUR EYE YOUR PASSION SHOWS IN THOSE WRINKLED CLOTHES DON'T TELL ME NO I SMELL A LIE I SMELL A LIE YOU CAN'T WASH AWAY THAT LOVE LOOK IN YOUR EYE YOUR PASSION SHOWS IN THOSE WRINKLED CLOTHES DON'T TELL ME NO I SMELL A LIE [ Ends ] NO, NO, NO, LADIES.
THIS IS COUNTRY MUSIC.

LET'S TAKE A BREAK, EVERYBODY.
[ Tape Rewinding ] YOU MUST BE, UH, MR.
SEAVERS AND, UH, MR.
MUNSON.
I'M COLT.
COLT.
THIS HERE'S HOWIE.
HI, HOWIE.
PLEASURE MEETING YA.
WELL, THE PLEASURE'S OURS.
I'VE BEEN A BIG FAN OF YOURS FOR A LONG TIME.
- UH, SO HAS HOWIE.
- BIG FAN.
- I GUESS YOU KNOW WHY WE'RE HERE.
- WELL, I'M AFRAID I DO, BUT LET'S GE ONE THING STRAIGHT.
THE WORST IT COULD POSSIBLY BE IS SELF-DEFENSE.
DUANE WAS PROTECTING ME.
THAT'S FOR THE COURTS TO DECIDE.
- OUR JOB'S JUST TO BRING HIM BACK SO HE CAN STAND TRIAL.
- WELL, I KNOW AND I'M SORRY.
IT'S JUST THAT DUANE WOULDN'T HURT A FLY ON PURPOSE.
HE MAY BE BIG, BUT HE'S REALLY A SWEET AND GENTLE MAN, AND I'D REALLY LIKE TO HELP HIM.
WELL, THE BEST WAY TO DO THA IS TO HELP US FIND HIM BEFORE THE POLICE DO.
YOU SEE, HIS BEST SHO IS TO STAND TRIAL.
I WISHED I HAD MORE INFORMATION THAT WOULD HELP YOU, BUT I DON'T.
ARE YOU SURE? ANYTHING MIGHT BE USEFUL.
WELL, THERE IS THIS GIRL THAT HE SEES.
I THINK HER NAME IS DIXIE JAMES.
SHE WORKS AT ONE OF THESE DRIVE-IN RESTAURANTS.
I BELIEVE IT'S CALLED B.
J.
's.
- DIXIE JAMES? - DIXIE JAMES.
UH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR.
MATHEWS.
WE APPRECIATE IT.
I JUST WISHED I COULD BE OF A LITTLE MORE HELP.
THANKS AGAIN.
DON'T TELL ME NO I SMELL A LIE COLT, WHAT DO YOU SAY WE PICK UP A COUPLE OF BURGERS WHILE WE'RE THERE? KID, WE'RE ON A JOB.
[ Country ] [ Continues ] WHAT CAN I GET FOR YA? ARE YOU, UH, DIXIE JAMES? YEAH.
- WE'RE LOOKIN' FOR DUANE SMITH.
- DUANE? YOU WORK FOR THE POLICE? NO, WE WORK FOR THE BONDING COMPANY THAT PUT UP HIS BOND.
A BOUNTY HUNTER, HUH? WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE AND ALL THAT? WELL, IT DOESN'T EXACTLY WORK LIKE THAT ANYMORE.
WELL, IF YOU CAME TO ME FOR INFORMATION, YOU'RE LOOKIN' IN THE WRONG PLACE.
DUANE IS THE SWEETEST MAN I KNOW, AND HE WOULDN' HURT ANYBODY.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MR.
TIPPE MUST HAVE BEEN AN ACCIDENT.
LOOK, I DON'T PRETEND TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO DUANE TO GE HIM INTO ALL THIS TROUBLE, BUT I DO KNOW THA HE JUMPED BAIL, AND I'M GONNA BRING HIM BACK - WHETHER YOU HELP ME OR NOT.
- OH, YOU ARE, ARE YOU? - YES.
- DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT HIS RUNNING LIKE THIS MAKES HIM LOOK GUILTY EVEN IF HE ISN'T? DIXIE, PLEASE HELP US FIND HIM.
IT'S REALLY THE BEST THING FOR HIM.
WELL, I GUESS YOU GUYS ARE ON THE SQUARE.
I GUESS STANDING TRIAL IS BETTER THAN RUNNING ALL HIS LIFE.
LOOK, I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE, BUT HE MIGHT BE HIDIN' OU IN A HOUSE DEEP IN THE HILLS.
I HAVE TO DRAW YOU A MAP.
HEY, THAT'S GREAT.
YOU WON'T REGRET THIS.
- NICE ROOM, HUH, DUANE? - HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO STAY HERE? AH, LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET THIS MESS STRAIGHTENED OUT.
I HAVE TO STAY HERE ALL BY MYSELF? NAH.
I'LL COME BY AND VISIT YOU.
YOU WON'T BE HERE MORE THAN A DAY OR TWO.
WATCH TELEVISION.
THAT'S ALL YOU EVER DO AT HOME ANYWAY.
CAN I CALL DIXIE? NO.
YOU CAN'T CALL ANYBODY.
NO ONE'S SUPPOSED TO KNOW YOU'RE HERE.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND? YES, SIR, I UNDERSTAND.
THAT-A-BOY.
I'LL COME BY AND SEE YOU TONIGHT.
LET ME TURN THIS THING ON FOR YOU.
[ TV: Cartoon Whistle ] BYE, MR.
MATHEWS.
[ Door Closes ] [ Colt ] WELL, SHE SAID IT WAS PRETTY FAR OUT.
THIS HAS GOT TO BE IT HERE.
[ Colt ] STAY HERE IN CASE WE GET SOME UNEXPECTED COMPANY, HUH? [ Howie ] SHE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT A DOG.
WELL, ANIMALS LOVE ME.
MUST BE A BIG DOG.
[ Animal Growling ] [ Roaring ] OH, GEEZ.
[ Growling ] NICE KITTY.
[ Growling ] [ Roaring ] HEY! GET AWAY FROM MY HAT! I CAN'T YELL FOR HELP.
I'M A STUNTMAN.
WELL, LET'S SEE IF HE LIKES THIS.
KITTY.
KITTY.
HERE, KITTY.
KITTY, KITTY.
GET IT, GET IT.
GET IT! [ Growls ] [ Growling, Roaring ] CAN I HELP YOU? UH, YEAH.
MY NAME'S HOWIE MUNSON.
MY PARTNER AND I WERE TRYING TO FOLLOW THIS MAP.
PARTNER? WHERE IS HE? WELL, HE SORT OF WENT INSIDE LOOKIN' FOR A GUY.
- DIDN'T HE SEE THE CAT? - A KITTY CAT? NO, A 350-POUND CAT.
WE'D BETTER HURRY.
[ Roars ] HERE, KITTY.
HERE, KITTY.
HE'LL HAVE ME DOWN TO MY SHORTS.
[ Fabric Ripping ] [ Growls ] OH! - WHAT'D YOU DO TO HIM, YOU MANGY-- - KID, I'M UP HERE.
COLT! I THOUGHT THAT WAS ALL THAT WAS LEFT OF YOU.
- WELL, IT NEARLY WAS.
- HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOIN'? DON'T GO OUT THERE! WHAT ARE YOU DOIN'? [ Woman ] OKAY, YOU CAN COME DOWN NOW.
I SURE HOPE HE DIDN'T SCARE YOU.
OH, NO, NO.
I CLIMB TREES FOR A HOBBY.
WHAT ARE YOU TWO DOING AROUND HERE? WE'RE LOOKIN' FOR DUANE SMITH.
WELL, UNLESS HE LIVED IN A TENT, HE'S NEVER LIVED HERE.
THERE'S NO HOUSES ON THIS END OF THE PROPERTY, AND NO STRANGERS HAVE BEEN AROUND.
- ARE YOU SURE? - I SHOULD BE.
I'M THE CARETAKER.
CARETAKER? AS IN "LIVE UP HERE ALL BY YOURSELF" CARETAKER? SURE.
I GO TO TOWN A LO AND I HAVE MY BABY.
IF YOU HAVE LIONS IN HERE, WHY DO YOU HAVE A BEWARE OF DOG SIGN ON THE GATE OUT THERE? FIND A HARDWARE STORE THAT DOES HAVE A BEWARE OF LION SIGN.
SHE HAS A POINT, COLT.
[ TV: Romantic ] [ No Audible Dialogue ] THIS IS DIXIE.
HI, SWEETHEART.
IT'S YOUR DUANE.
DUANE.
WHERE ARE YOU? WELL, I KNOW BUT I CAN'T TELL YOU.
WHY NOT? I WANNA SEE YOU.
I JUST CAN'T.
DUANE, DID YOU REALLY KILL THAT MAN? I DON'T WAN TO TALK ABOUT IT.
IT'S MATHEWS, ISN'T IT? HE TOLD YOU NOT TO SAY ANYTHING, RIGHT? DIXIE, I CAN'T TELL YOU.
IF YOU CAN'T TELL ME ANYTHING, WHY'D YOU CALL? 'CAUSE I MISS YOU.
I MISS YOU TOO, DUANE.
PLEASE TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE.
NO, I CAN'T.
I PROMISED.
I GOTTA GO, DIXIE.
BYE.
DUANE-- DON'T HANG UP.
DUANE! [ Dial Tone ] [ Door Opens ] WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? OH, JUST A LITTLE WILD GOOSE CHASE IN THE HILLS.
AND THE GOOSE TURNED OU TO BE A LION.
A LION? [ Colt ] YEAH, AND IT WAS FEEDING TIME.
[ Laughs ] WHAT'S SO FUNNY? I DON'T THINK IT'S SO FUNNY.
WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE YOU DOING IN A PLACE WHERE THEY KEEP LIONS? DUANE'S GIRLFRIEND, DIXIE JAMES, SENT US OUT THERE.
[ Colt ] I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING.
LITTLE DIXIE JAMES ISN'T GONNA THINK IT'S TOO FUNNY WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON HER.
COME ON, KID.
COLT, CALM DOWN A LITTLE.
DON'T TELL ME TO CALM DOWN WHEN I WAS ALMOST EATEN BY A LION.
HEY! WHERE'S DIXIE JAMES? WHO? DIXIE JAMES.
SHE'S NOT HERE.
I-I MEAN, SHE'S GONE.
GONE WHERE? I-I DON'T WANT ANY TROUBLE.
I-I'VE-- I'VE ONLY BEEN MANAGING HERE FOR A WEEK.
THERE WON'T BE ANY TROUBLE.
YOU JUST TELL US WHERE SHE IS.
OKAY, OKAY.
I'LL-- I'LL TELL YOU.
SHE LEFT WORK EARLY BECAUSE SHE'LL BE SINGIN' LATER TONIGHT AT THE PALOMINO-- IT'S AMATEUR NIGHT.

AND IF YOU DON' GET ENOUGH THE FIRST TIME WHY DON'T YOU GO AROUND AND, UH, TALK TO SOME OF THE PATRONS? SOMEBODY HERE MIGHT KNOW DUANE OR AT LEAST KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
YEAH.
THAT'D BE A PLEASURE.
YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT AH, IT'S A PARTY FOR TWO MÉNAGE À DEUX IT'S A PARTY FOR TWO JUST ME AND YOU MÉNAGE À DEUX IT'S GONNA LAST ALL NIGHT LAST ALL NIGHT WE'RE GONNA DO I TILL WE DO IT RIGHT DO IT RIGHT PARTY FOR TWO PARTY FOR TWO MOI ET VOUS MÉNAGE À DEUX MÉNAGE À DEUX [ Applause ] THANK Y'ALL VERY MUCH.

I DON'T EVEN WANT TO BOTHER YOU.
BUT THAT LION COULD'VE HURT ME REAL BAD THIS MORNING.
LOOK, I'M SORRY.
BUT WHAT'D YOU EXPECT FROM ME? YOU'RE TRYING TO CATCH THE MAN I LOVE.
COLT, YOU GOTTA SEE THIS.
NOT NOW, KID.
WE'RE HAVING A LITTLE TALK.
LOOK, DIXIE, I CAN UNDERSTAND YOUR WANTING TO PROTECT HIM, BUT YOU'LL MAKE THINGS EASIER FOR HIM IF YOU'LL JUST HELP ME.
I'LL TELL YOU THE TRUTH, MR.
-- [ Country ] SEAVERS.
COLT SEAVERS.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE DUANE IS.
I SWEAR IT.
EVEN IF I DID, I STILL WOULDN'T TELL YOU UNTIL I FELT CERTAIN THA GOING WITH YOU WOULD BE THE BEST THING FOR DUANE.
WHAT, YOU MAKE THOSE KIND OF DECISIONS FOR HIM? WELL, IF YOU'D EVER MET HIM, YOU'D KNOW WHY.
HE'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE CALL SIMPLEMINDED.
HOW SIMPLE? SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR A LO OF INSENSITIVE PEOPLE TO MAKE JOKES ABOUT HIM.
HE'S BEEN TEASED ALL HIS LIFE.
YOU MIND ME ASKING WHAT YOU SEE IN HIM? MR.
SEAVERS, I'VE HAD MY SHARE OF BETTER-LOOKING MEN AND ONES THAT THOUGH THAT THEY WAS A WHOLE LOT SMARTER.
WELL, NOT ONE OF THEM TREATED ME WITH THE RESPEC OR TENDERNESS THAT DUANE DOES.
WHEN I'M WITH DUANE, I FEEL LOVED.
WELL, YOU CAN'T HAVE A BETTER REASON THAN THAT.
YEAH.
AND THAT'S ALSO THE REASON I KNOW DUANE DIDN' KILL ANYBODY.
IT JUST AIN'T IN HIM.
THAT'S NOT FOR EITHER OF US TO SAY.
SOMEBODY KILLED TIPPET.
AND ONLY MATHEWS AND DUANE WERE THERE.
NOW, DUANE CONFESSED.
I'M SURE YOU CAN SEE WHY PEOPLE WOULD THINK HE DID IT.
[ Continues ] I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY.
I DON'T CARE WHAT DUANE SAYS.
I KNOW HE DIDN'T DO IT.
COLT, WE GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE FAST! WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU? YOU LOOK LIKE YOU JUS STOLE SOMETHING.
I DID.
LOOK AT THIS.
BUT NOT NOW.
YOU CAN LOOK AT IT LATER.
COME ON.
[ Continues ] ALL RIGHT, KID.
THIS BETTER BE GOOD.
IT IS.
[ Continues ] LOOK.
THAT'S MATHEWS.
- THAT'S KENNY TIPPET.
- YEAH.
SO WHAT? SO MATHEWS TOLD THE POLICE THAT HE'D NEVER SEEN TIPPE BEFORE THAT NIGHT.
GOOD WORK, KID.
I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS, BUT GOOD WORK.
WELL, DON'T YOU SEE, COLT? IF MATHEWS LIED ABOU NOT KNOWING TIPPET, MAYBE HE LIED ABOU NOT KNOWING WHERE DUANE IS.
I MEAN, WHAT IF HE'S PROTECTING HIM? WHY WOULD HE DO THAT? HE SAID IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.
HIS TESTIMONY CAN CLEAR DUANE OF THE MURDER CHARGE.
WELL, WHAT IF THERE'S MORE TO THIS CASE THAN ANYBODY KNOWS ABOUT? - LIKE WHAT? - I DON'T KNOW YET.
BUT WHAT IF THERE IS MORE? [ Sighs ] WELL, WE'LL SHOW THIS TO MATHEWS IN THE MORNING.
NOW YOU'RE TALKIN', COLT.
[ Mathews ] ARE YOU SURE THIS IS THE GUY THAT TRIED TO ROB ME? I MEAN, THIS PICTURE WASN'T EXACTLY TAKEN YESTERDAY.
OH, IT'S HIM, ALL RIGHT.
I DON'T REMEMBER EVER SEEIN' HIM BEFORE.
MR.
SEAVERS, I MUST BE IN A THOUSAND PICTURES LIKE THIS A YEAR.
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER EVERY FAN THAT I TAKE A PICTURE WITH? ARE YOU SAYING KENNY TIPPE WAS JUST A FAN? ABSOLUTELY.
AND I CAN'T SAY THAT I APPRECIATE YOU TWO THINKIN' OTHERWISE.
I MEAN, WHAT'S GOIN' ON HERE? I THOUGHT YOU TWO WERE SUPPOSED TO BRING DUANE IN TO STAND TRIAL.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE TRYIN' TO SOLVE A CASE THAT'S ALREADY BEEN SOLVED.
IF IT REALLY WAS SOLVED.
WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? I SUPPOSE THAT DEPENDS ON WHETHER YOU'VE BEEN TELLING US THE TRUTH OR NOT.
I WAS AFRAID YOU WAS GONNA SAY SOMETHIN' LIKE THAT.
I THINK YOU TWO HAVE JUS WORN OUT YOUR WELCOME.
YEAH, WELL, WE WERE GOIN' ANYWAY.
GOOD.
AS MUCH AS IT HURTS TO SAY THIS, I'D LIKE IT IF YOU NEVER CAME BACK.
OH, WE WON'T BE BACK UNLESS WE FIND OUT THA YOU REALLY ARE LYING TO US.
LET'S GO, KID.
- SAM.
- YEAH, BOSS? HOW WOULD YOU AND GREG LIKE TO PICK UP AN EXTRA FIVE GRAND? IF I'VE EVER SEEN A MAN THAT WAS LYIN' THROUGH HIS TEETH, IT WAS MATHEWS.
HE KNEW TIPPET.
I BET HE KNOWS WHERE DUANE IS RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT.
MAYBE.
BUT HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT ONE THING.
IT'S NOT OUR JOB TO SOLVE THE MURDER.
IT'S OUR JOB TO FIND DUANE.
YEAH, BUT IT SURE MAKES YOU WONDER.
HERE THEY COME.
WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT? JUST BECAUSE HE DRIVES A CATTLE TRUCK, - HE THINKS HE OWNS THE ROAD.
- [ Sniffs ] BOY, THAT SMELLS AWFUL.
[ Colt ] WHEW! SURE AIN'T AQUA VELVET.
ROLL UP YOUR WINDOW, WILL YOU? LET'S SEE IF I CAN GET AROUND THIS CODGER.
HEY! WHAT'S HE DOIN'? - [ Tires Squealing ] - THAT GUY'S NUTS.
HOLD ON, KID.
CRAZY OLD FARMER.
HE'S TRYIN' TO RUN US OFF THE ROAD.
- [ Tires Squealing ] - HEY! HEY! HOLD ON, KID! YOU OKAY, COLT? YEAH.
HOW ABOUT YOU, KID? YEAH.
I THOUGH WE WERE DEAD FOR SURE.
THAT'S A PRETTY CLOSE CALL.
CLOSE? I SAW ALL MY COLLEGE COURSES FLASH BEFORE MY EYES.
HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOU THIS PLACE ANYWAY, COLT? EVERYBODY THAT LOVES MACHINES KNOWS ABOUT SKIP.
HE'S THE BES MECHANIC AROUND.
THE ONLY THING IS, HE LIVES SO FAR BACK UP HERE IN THE HILLS.
YEAH, WELL, THIS TIME THE LOCATION CAME IN HANDY.
YOU KNOW, I'M BEGINNING TO BELIEVE YOUR THEORY ABOUT MATHEWS.
OUR LITTLE TRIP INTO THAT RAVINE WASN'T ANY ACCIDENT.
WELL, WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO ABOUT IT? WELL, FIRST THINGS FIRST.
CALL JODY.
SEE IF SHE CAN BRING US ANOTHER SET OF WHEELS.
RIGHT AWAY.
WHAT'D YOU DO, ENTER THIS TRUCK IN A DEMOLITION DERBY? NO.
TOOK A SHORT TRIP OVER A STEEP CLIFF.
[ Whirring ] YOU STUNT GUYS ARE CRAZY, BUT YOU KEEP ME IN BUSINESS.
HOW MUCH TIME IN THE SHOP, SKIP? WELL, YOU REALLY DID A NUMBER ON THE FRONT SUSPENSION, AND THE RADIATOR'S TOTALLY SHOT.
AND YOU'RE GONNA NEED SOME WORK ON THE STEERING COLUMN, NOT TO MENTION ALL THE BODY WORK.
I'D SAY, UH, DAY AFTER TOMORROW.
BUT YOU GOT PARTS ON THIS THING YOU JUST CAN' BUY OVER THE COUNTER.
YEAH, I KNOW, I KNOW.
I GET THE PICTURE.
UH-- I'LL PUT EVERY AVAILABLE MAN ON HER.
OF COURSE, THERE'S ONLY ME.
WHAT ABOUT JODY? SHE COMING? NAH, SHE'S NOT HOME, AND SHE'S NOT AT OUR PLACE.
AND I CALLED BIG JACK, BUT SHE'S IN COURT.
OH, GREAT.
WHAT AM I GONNA DO FOR TRANSPORTATION? HEY! HEY, YOU CAN USE MY TRUCK! NO, NO, NO, SKIP.
HEY, COME ON, COLT.
WE'RE FRIENDS! YOU NEED WHEELS, YOU GOT 'EM.
SHE'S RIGHT OVER HERE.
SHE'S A REAL BEAUTY, AIN'T SHE? I BUILT HER MYSELF WITH STUFF I FOUND AROUND THE JUNKYARD.
YEAH, SKIP.
SHE'S A REAL RED-BLOODED PIECE OF AMERICANA.
FOR SURE.
AND SHE'S SOLID AS A ROCK.
I LIVED IN HER FOR THREE YEARS AFTER THE WIFE LEFT.
THIS BABY MAY NOT HAVE ALL THE POWER THAT YOU'RE USED TO, BUT SHE'S GOT PERSONALITY, NOT TO MENTION RUNNING WATER IN THE BACK.
GEE, SKIP, UH-- LOOK, I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR OFFER, BUT-- HEY, UH, IF SHE'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU-- OH, SKIP, IT'S NOTHING LIKE THAT.
HEY, I UNDERSTAND.
I MEAN, YOU'RE A BIG HOLLYWOOD STUNTMAN AND ALL.
[ Colt ] YOU KNOW, SKIP'S A HELL OF A MECHANIC, BUT A TERRIBLE CARPENTER.
COLT, LOOK.
THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT'S A REFRIGERATOR.
YOU WANT A SODA? NO.
LET ME SEE THAT PHOTOGRAPH AGAIN.
SURE.
YOU KNOW, THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT, THE MORE I BELIEVE THAT THAT MATHEWS WAS LYING TO US ABOUT THIS PICTURE.
- WHAT MADE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND? - NEARLY GETTING KILLED.
YEAH, WELL, WE BOTH KNOW MATHEWS WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR US GOING OFF THE ROAD.
- BUT HOW ARE WE GONNA PROVE IT? - WELL, MAYBE THIS PHOTOGRAPHER, MICHAELS, KNOWS SOMETHING.
- HE TOOK THE PICTURE.
- HE TOOK IT A LONG TIME AGO.
HOW WE GONNA FIND HIM? WE GO LOOKIN' IN THE FIRST PLACE EVERY BOUNTY HUNTER LOOKS.
POLICE RECORDS? THE YELLOW PAGES.
[ Phone Rings ] HELLO? [ Mathews ] HI, DUANE.
MR.
MATHEWS.
HOW MUCH LONGER AM I GONNA HAVE TO STAY HERE? THAT'S WHAT I'M CALLING ABOUT.
WE'RE GONNA TAKE A LITTLE TRIP.
BACK TO THE RANCH? WELL, NOT EXACTLY.
YOU SEE, THEY'RE STILL MAKING A BIG THING OVER THIS KENNY TIPPET BUSINESS.
I THINK YOU'D BE A LOT SAFER IF I GOT YOU OUT OF THE COUNTRY TILL THE WHOLE THING BLOWS OVER.
OUT OF THE COUNTRY? DON'T WORRY.
I'VE ARRANGED EVERYTHING.
IT'LL BE LIKE A VACATION.
WE'LL BE FLYING OU IN MY PRIVATE PLANE.
CAN DIXIE COME WITH ME? NOT RIGHT AWAY, BUT I'LL HAVE HER OU IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.
- CAN I CALL HER AND TELL HER? - NO, NO.
I'LL CALL HER.
I'LL TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING.
BUT I-- HAVE I EVER MADE A PROMISE TO YOU AND THEN NOT DELIVER? NO, SIR.
TRUST ME.
EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE GREAT.
[ Line Clicks ] PRISCILLA, COME ON.
A REAL SASSY COWGIRL LOOK THERE.
[ Pop ] VERY GOOD, VERY GOOD.
NOW LOOK STRAIGHT AT THE CAMERA.
[ Shutter Clicking ] THAT'S IT.
A REAL KNOWING SMILE.
EXCELLENT.
NOW YOU'RE GONNA DO A BIG SMILE.

VERY GOOD.
VERY GOOD, LADIES.
THANK YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
GOOD DAY'S WORK.

THANKS, LADIES.
NOW, MR.
SEAVERS.
PHONE, PHONE.
YEAH.
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? YES, SIR.
YOU TOOK THIS PHOTOGRAPH.
I WAS JUST WONDERING IF YOU COULD RECOGNIZE THESE GUYS.
- OH, SURE.
BUT IT'S BEEN A FEW YEARS.
- I REALIZE THAT.
UH-- I WAS REALLY JUST GETTING STARTED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER THEN.
I USED TO TAKE A LOT OF PUBLICITY PICTURES FOR THE BANDS ON THE RODEO CIRCUIT.
UH, THESE TWO FELLOWS HERE, MATHEWS AND TIPPET-- DID THEY, UH, KNOW EACH OTHER SOCIALLY? YEAH.
THEY BOTH SANG ON THE CIRCUIT.
THEY WERE BOTH HOPING TO HIT IT BIG IN THE COUNTRY-WESTERN SCENE.
- MATHEWS DID.
TIPPET DIDN'T.
- TIPPET DIDN'T HAVE WHAT IT TOOK, HUH? - HE HAD WHAT IT TOOK UNTIL THE ACCIDENT.
- WHAT ACCIDENT? TIPPET WAS HORSING AROUND ON A BRAHMA BULL ONE DAY AND HE GOT THROWN.
HE LANDED WITH HIS THROA ON A RAILING.
HE RECOVERED.
HE COULD TALK, BUT SINGING WAS OUT.
- WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT? - I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.
- I ONLY KNOW WHAT I HEARD.
- WHICH WAS WHAT? I USED TO HANG OU WITH ONE OF THE MUSICIANS IN MATHEWS'S BAND.
HE WAS JUS AN OLD GUITAR PLAYER THAT WAS THERE AT THE BEGINNING.
HE TOLD ME HE THOUGHT TIPPE WAS WRITING SONGS FOR MATHEWS.
MAYBE SOME OF THE HITS.
WHY DIDN'T HE EVER GET ANY CREDIT? MAYBE YOU OUGHTA ASK MATHEWS ABOUT THAT.
WOULD YOU EXCUSE ME FOR A MINUTE? SURE.
THANK YOU.
DID YOU GET AHOLD OF JODY? I-I COULDN'T FIND HER.
[ Sighs ] WELL, I GUESS SKIP'S TRUCK WILL HAVE TO GET US WHERE WE'RE GONNA GO.
WHERE, BACK UP TO MATHEWS'S? NO, BACK TO DIXIE JAMES.
WITH THIS NEW EVIDENCE, MAYBE WE CAN CONVINCE HER THAT DUANE'S IN REAL TROUBLE, AND WE'RE THE ONLY HOPE HE'S GOT.
COME ON.
LET'S GO.
HELLO.
[ Duane ] HI, HONEY.
DUANE.
WHAT'S WRONG? YOU DON'T SOUND GOOD.
- I'M GOING ON A TRIP.
- A TRIP? WHERE? OUT OF THE COUNTRY.
WHAT? ROBERT'S TAKING YOU, ISN'T HE? YEAH.
HE'S DOING I FOR MY OWN GOOD.
BULL, DUANE! HE'S DOING I FOR HIS OWN GOOD.
HE KILLED KENNY TIPPET, DIDN'T HE? DIXIE.
I JUST CALLED TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU.
AND ROBERT WILL BE BRINGING YOU TO ME IN A FEW WEEKS.
DUANE, LISTEN TO ME.
ROBERT CAN'T BE TRUSTED.
DON'T GO ANYWHERE WITH HIM.
LOOK, TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE, AND I'LL COME AND GET YOU.
I CAN'T.
ROBERT WILL BE MAD AT ME IF I DON'T GO WITH HIM.
- I'LL BE MAD AT YOU IF YOU DO.
- OH, DIXIE.
DON'T BE MAD AT ME.
I GOTTA GO.
HONEY, EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE WHEN WE'RE IN MEXICO.
LOOK, DUANE, YOU'RE RIGHT.
ROBERT WILL HELP YOU.
ALL I WANT TO DO IS COME OVER AND KISS YOU GOOD-BYE.
THAT'S ALL.
BUT, UH-- OH, HONEY, COME ON, PLEASE.
I JUST HAVE TO.
JUST ONE GREAT BIG KISS GOOD-BYE? WELL, IF YOU GET HERE BEFORE ROBERT.
OKAY.
OKAY, DARLING.
THANK YOU.
BYE.
LOOK.
DON'T BOTHER ME.
I'M IN A HURRY.
- YEAH, WELL, SO ARE WE.
- WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR TRUCK? - MATHEWS PUSHED I OVER A CLIFF.
- YEAH, WITH US IN IT.
[ Colt ] AND GOD KNOWS WHAT HE'LL DO TO DUANE.
LISTEN.
WE'RE ON YOUR SIDE NOW.
WE DON'T THINK DUANE KILLED KENNY EITHER.
YOU PROMISE IF I TAKE YOU TO DUANE THAT HE'LL GET A FAIR TRIAL, AND YOU'LL HELP HIM CLEAR HIMSELF? - YOU GOT OUR WORD.
- OKAY.
HE JUST CALLED.
I KNOW WHERE HE IS.
BUT WE GOTTA HURRY.
ROBERT'S TAKING HIM OUT OF THE COUNTRY.
LET'S GO.
CAN'T THIS THING GO ANY FASTER? I SURE WISH WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN AHOLD OF JODY.
THAT DOESN'T MATTER NOW.
MOTEL SHOULD BE JUST DOWN A FEW BLOCKS.
DUANE, YOU SURE YOU GO ALL YOUR THINGS? I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH.
I'LL GET YOU A NEW WARDROBE IN MEXICO.
SURE IS PRETTY THERE THIS TIME OF YEAR.
YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKIN' FOR? HUH? NOTHIN'.
I'LL CHECK AND SEE WHAT ROOM HE'S IN.
THAT'S DIXIE WITH THOSE TWO BOUNTY HUNTERS.
DUANE, YOU CALLED HER.
I'M SORRY, MR.
MATHEWS.
THAT'S THE TWO GUYS THAT ARE TRYING TO PUT YOU IN JAIL! SHE DOUBLE-CROSSED YOU! WE GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE.
AH, THEY'RE SPLITTING.
[ Tires Squealing ] [ Dixie ] COLT, WE'LL NEVER CATCH HIM IN THIS.
- [ Howie ] LOOK OUT, COLT! - [ Horn Honks ] [ Air Hissing ] [ Hits Truck ] [ Tool Squeaking ] WELL, AT LEAS HE HAD A SPARE.
YEAH.
HURRY UP, WILL YA? ROBERT WILL HAVE DUANE OUT OF THE COUNTRY BEFORE WE EVEN GET THERE.
WHERE? WE LOST HIM.
WELL, ROBERT HAS HIS OWN PLANE.
AND IF HE'S TAKING DUANE OUT OF THE COUNTRY, HE'S PROBABLY TAKING HIM TO HIS PRIVATE LANDING STRIP.
[ Colt ] WHERE'S THAT? HE BOUGHT A PIECE OF AN OLD MOVIE RANCH, TURNED I INTO HIS OWN AIRPORT.
THE OLD RKO RANCH.
YEAH.
I KNOW WHERE THAT IS.
I DID A COUPLE OF WESTERNS THERE.
LET'S GIVE IT A SHOT.
I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE DIXIE'D DO THAT.
I NEVER TRUSTED HER.
SHE DOESN'T CARE FOR YOU LIKE I DO.
YOU NEED TO DEPEND ON ME, DUANE.
I DO, ROBERT.
YOU'RE MY FRIEND.
COME ON.
LET'S GO INSIDE THE SHED TILL THE PLANE COMES IN.
WHAT DO WE HAVE TO WAI IN HERE FOR? I CAN'T TAKE ANY CHANCES ON SOMEONE SEEING YOU UNTIL I HAVE YOU SAFE AND SOUND DOWN IN MEXICO.
WHAT'S IT GONNA BE LIKE DOWN IN MEXICO? WELL, YOU'RE NOT GONNA MISS DIXIE, THAT'S FOR SURE.
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE MORE SEÑORITAS THAN YOU'LL BE ABLE TO HANDLE.
WHERE WE GONNA LIVE? RIGHT ON THE BEACH.
I'LL GET YOU A PLACE OF YOUR OWN.
BE ABLE TO GET UP IN THE MORNING AND LOOK OUT AT THE SEA.
CAN WE GO FISHING? THEY GOT MARLIN DOWN THERE BIGGER THAN YOU ARE.
SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD, MR.
MATHEWS.
GOOD? IT'S GONNA BE GREAT.
HEAVEN ON EARTH.
YEAH.
HEAVEN ON EARTH.
- YOU STAY INSIDE TILL THE PLANE COMES, ALL RIGHT? - OKAY.
THAT'S FUNNY.
WHY'D HE LOCK ME IN HERE LIKE THAT? [ Dixie ] WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO IF WE DON'T GET THERE IN TIME? WHAT IF HE TAKES OFF WITH DUANE? DON'T WORRY.
WE'RE ALMOST THERE.
YEAH, BUT NOW THAT MATHEWS KNOWS YOU'RE ONTO HIM, HE MIGH DO SOMETHING TERRIBLE.
[ Sniffing ] MR.
MATHEWS! MR.
MATHEWS, HELP! [ Knocking Continues ] MR.
MATHEWS! HE DOUBLE-CROSSED ME! HELP! COLT, LOOK.
DUANE'S NOT WITH HIM.
HE MUST BE IN THAT HOUSE.
WE GOT TO GET DOWN THERE.
ROBERT STORES THE FUEL FOR HIS PLANE IN THAT HOUSE.
IT'S GONNA BLOW ANY SECOND.
WE'LL NEVER MAKE IT.
IT'LL TAKE FIVE MINUTES BY THE ROAD.
WE'RE GONNA TAKE A SHORTCUT.
[ Colt ] HANG ON.
YOU GET MATHEWS.
I'LL GET DUANE.
YOU GET AWAY FROM THE HOUSE.
IT'S GONNA BLOW.
BUT-- NO, GET AWAY FROM THE HOUSE.
GO ON.
[ Tires Screech ] DUANE.
HEY, SEAVERS, YOU GOT THE WRONG MAN.
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GET DUANE, NOT ME.
HE KILLED TIPPET.
HE CONFESSED.
NOW HE KNOWS YOU TRIED TO KILL HIM, I THINK HE'LL CHANGE HIS STORY.
GET DOWN.
IT'S GONNA BLOW! GET DOWN.
[ Skip ] THE MEMORIES, THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD.
I MEAN, THERE WERE TIMES WE'D JUST GO OFF TOGETHER, THE TWO OF US, FOR WEEKS.
PART OF MY LIFE WAS IN THAT TRUCK, AND WHEN SHE BLEW UP, PART OF ME SORT OF DIED.
COLT, HE'S TALKING ABOUT THAT TRUCK LIKE IT WAS A PERSON.
OH, SKIP, I'LL MAKE IT UP TO YOU.
I SWEAR.
IN FACT, I'M TRYING TO SWING IT SO THAT WHEN MATHEWS'S TRIAL IS OVER, YOU GET THIS LIMO.
A LIMO? YEAH.
YOU SEE, BIG JACK IS SUING MATHEWS FOR DAMAGES, AND SHE THINKS THAT SHE CAN GET YOU THIS AS COMPENSATION FOR YOUR TRUCK.
NOTHING CAN REPLACE MY TRUCK.
OH, NOW, SKIP, A LIMOUSINE CAN BE PRETTY SPECIAL TOO.
YEAH, TAKE A LOOK IN THE BACKSEAT.
YOU KNOW, THERE'S PLENTY OF ROOM TO SLEEP IN THERE.
A HEATER, A STEREO.
HEY.
HEY, I'M BEGINNING TO SEE WHAT YOU BOYS MEAN.
IF I WERE TO PUT A TORCH TO THE BACK OF THIS THING-- TORCH TO A LIMO? SHUT UP, KID.
THERE'S A GENIUS AT WORK.
I COULD CUT THE BACK OF THIS SUCKER OUT AND HAVE ENOUGH ROOM TO BUILD A HOUSE WITH A LOFT! A LOFT? TWO-STORY.
IF I BEEF UP THE SUSPENSION, MAYBE I COULD EVEN PUT IN A HOT TUB.
HOT TUB! COLT, SKIP'S STARTING TO GE PRETTY ATTACHED TO THIS LIMO.
WHAT HAPPENS IF BIG JACK CAN'T GET IT FOR HIM? I GUESS MY-- GUESS MY TRUCK WILL BE GOING CONDO.
