  • Trivia

    • Trampas says he likes his steak cooked rare. Melanie likes hers well done.

    • Trampas tells Melanie about his background. His mother died when he was a kid, and he grew up standing behind his dad, watching him play poker. They tried getting their own spread once, but it didn't work out. When his dad died, Trampas was angry and went "looking for trouble," but instead he found a home and family at Shiloh.

    • Trampas tells Melanie he makes $30 a month.

    • When Melanie comes to the bunkhouse in the middle of the night to see Trampas, he's sleeping with his clothes, boots and hat on.

  • Quotes

    • Trampas: Life, well, it's like a mountain. You climb up to a plateau, catch your breath, take a look around, see where you are, then you look up and you climb up to the next plateau.
      Melanie: When do you stop climbing?
      Trampas: When you reach the top of the mountain.
      Melanie: What's up there?
      (They kiss)
