    • (the Sheltin boys ride up while Micah is out working on the coral alone)
      Flory: My, my. How the mighty have fallen.
      Micah: Well, well, if it ain't the Sheltin boys.
      Flory: You see, Andrew, a marshal never forgets them he shoots holes into. We're still packin' your lead, Mr. Torrance.
      Micah: Must have been ten years or so since I straightened you boys out. Figured you'd be hung by now.
      Flory: Oh, we don't hang easy.
      Micah: What are you coyotees doin' around here, anyway? Lookin' for some eggs to suck?
      Andrew: We're lookin' to have another try at ya, Micah. Go get your gun.
      Micah: You're way too late. (holds his arm) I ain't been able to draw a gun in five years. Andrew (throws a gun on the ground): Jus' pick it up.
      Micah: (turns his back to them) Why bother with me? I'm already dead.
      Flory: (pulling out his gun) I aim to make sure.
      Andrew: Let me have him.
      Lucas: (comes up with his rifle at the ready) Not today, boys.
