(Paladin has shot "Hodges" in self defense, and told him why Paladin had come searching for him.)
Paladin: Mr. Burgess, you and I are both near dead.
Hodges: I've got news for you yet. Give me the jacket. I got no time to argue! Put it on. Put it on. (Paladin draps the jacket over the man's shoulders.) When you get back--and you'd better get back, Mister--this is the part I want you to tell 'em. (Starts to stagger towards the entrance.) Tell my brother-in-law what kind of end I came to. You understand?
Paladin: I understand.
