    Vash befriends Frank Marlin, and old town hero. He gave guns to all the people of the town to save them from bandits. Frank is now a miserable drunk, and Vash intends to turn his life around. When an imposter comes to the town claiming he is Vash, the whole town is in an up roar. Vash takes on the imposter and his gang unarmed. Soon the whole town joins in to overcome them.

    Quite a remarkable episode. With a very good quote to remember it by.

    • Vash(drunk): G-Gimmie-Gimmie back my gun, grandma.
      (Vash gets hit in the face by his gun)
      Frank: Huh? What happened, brother?
      Vash: I don't know, my head just started to hurt.
      Frank: Oh, that's not good. I have an idea. Let's go to my place and drink it better.

      Frank: Even worse.
      Vash: Well, then, what do you suggest?
