- 1. Damn it, I told you.
- 2. Did you think I was stupid?
- 3. That's exactly what I said.
Six – Six of 'em.
- 4. Evenin'.
- 5. Holy Mother of God,
keep me pure in thought, word and deed.
- 6. Laura, what's for dinner?
- 7. No, sit down. Sit down.
- 8. Laura!
- 9. - Say, uh, that's the back door, ain't it?
- 10. I-I was about to put up a bottle
on the house.
- 11. - Yeah, that'll be the day.
- 12. Get the pipe. Get the pipe.
- 13. - Was he wearing a gun?
- Sure didn't stay very long.
- 14. He ain't goin' nowhere.
Just gettin' somethin' out of his pack.
- 15. Say, do you know what kind of gun that was?
That was a Swedish kind of gun.
- 16. Uh, Swedish.
- 17. Get a rag.
- 18. So cheap, he squeezes out the bar rag.
- 19. Wet enough for you, mister?
- 20. Starts raining up here,
it doesn't know when to stop.
- 21. Yeah.
- 22. Oh, yeah.
- 23. - I got a 20 and –
- You got a 20?
- 24. What are you doing, Coyle?
I brought that chair over here.
- 25. You're lucky you got a gimp leg,
or I'd bash you in the face, you ignorant...
- 26. - It comin' back to you, Frank?
- Yeah, we got it.
- 27. What you give me?
- 28. - Gentlemen.
- Where'd you get all that money?
- 29. Wanna take a look at these?
- 30. I'll put in 10.
- 31. Say, Professor.
- 32. Didn't you say somethin'
about a bottle on the house or somethin'?
- 33. Sheehan wouldn't say that.
- 34. That's what he said.
Yeah, that's what he said.
- 35. - Yeah, I'm, uh –
- 36. I'm Patrick Sheehan. This is my place.
- 37. Shouldn't we make a deal?
- 38. Uh, well, um, how much a bottle?
- 39. - Three dollars.
- 40. Three dollars?
Yesterday it was two dollars.
- 41. Well, look, uh, how about
we go 50-50 on that?
- 42. - I share your profits?
- You want to share the losses?
- 43. I supply the place.
- 44. Yeah, but, uh,
I think I supply the customers.
- 45. Nobody's bought nothing yet.
- 46. Tell you what, you give these boys
a two-dollar bottle on me,
- 47. and then I'll stand my own losses
and you can make your profit on the whiskey.
- 48. That's good.
- 49. - One three-dollar bottle, Pat.
- Bring it on.
- 50. Forty, fifty.
- 51. Two-sixty. Two-sixty.
- 52. Well, there's 52 there.
- 53. - Throwin' away good liquor on him.
- Might as well wave good-bye to your flask.
- 54. Well, you boys don't know nothin' about me
and I don't know nothin' about you.
- 55. So what do you say we make this
a nickel game, huh? To start off with.
- 56. Nickel? Let's make it a dime.
- 57. I thank you very kindly, sir.
- 58. Now, what I'd like to do,
- 59. I'd like to make this a five-card stud
- 60. with a, uh, three-bet roof on the card.
- 61. And then maybe we get to see, uh, 15 cents
on an open pair and the last card.
- 62. Unless you have
no objections about that, I'd –
- 63. - That's good. I'm in for five.
- Fifteen and the open pair? I'm in.
- 64. Comin' to kick your ass, boy.
- 65. Eight of hearts.
- 66. Four of clubs.
- 67. Deuce of spades. Seven of diamonds.
- 68. Eight of spades. Jack of spades.
- 69. Three of hearts.
- 70. Okay, my friend.
- 71. - Jack off.
- 72. Close that goddamn door!
- 73. - Evening, Reverend.
- 74. Uh, check.
- 75. - Is it done?
- 76. Evenin', Mr. Elliott.
- 77. Hi, Freddie. Going to the opera?
- 78. Mr. Smalley, you want to
sit in on a hand here?
- 79. Uh, you know I don't gamble
with no professionals.
- 80. - Hey, I'll take your place, Robbie.
- If Smalley's not in, I'm staying on.
- 81. Hey, what's this shit? You don't wanna play,
what's it matter whether it's me or Smalley?
- 82. And dry peas.
- 83. Church coming along nicely, isn't it?
- 84. I was talking with Mrs. Anderson.
Can't wait until we get it finished.
- 85. - Hey, who's the dealer?
- Fella by the name of McCabe.
- 86. - What?
- 87. - How do you know that?
- He said his name was McCabe.
- 88. - Joe Shortreed told me.
- How does he know?
- 89. I don't know. I guess McCabe told him.
- 90. - Never lose so fast before in my life.
- McCABE: Jumpin' in like birds.
- 91. - How's it going?
- Beating his ass.
- 92. Drink on the house, Mr. McCabe?
- 93. —Thank you very much.
- 94. Yeah, yeah, a nickel.
- 95. You didn't say your name was McCabe
when you come in here.
- 96. I didn't say it now. You did.
- 97. - What you up to?
- 98. - Okay. Need new ones.
- 99. Pudgy McCabe?
- 100. The gunfighter?
- 101. Businessman. Businessman.
- 102. Business ain't so good, is it, huh?
- 103. —Say, did you ever know Bill Roundtree?
- 104. What's the matter with you, Sheehan?
You got a turd in your pocket?
- 105. Pat, we're trying to
play some poker here, eh?
- 106. I got a king here, gents.
- 107. - Oh, shit.
- Bart, you're getting slick as a cat's ass.
- 108. Hey, partner, you wanna deal
a couple of hands for me?
- 109. - Sure.
- You aren't leavin', are ya?
- 110. - You're not quittin'?
- No, no.
- 111. Be right back, gentlemen. Right back.
- 112. My good man.
- 113. Try not to drop the cards, eh, Riley?
- 114. - Where you going?
- 115. Uh, I-I was, uh, just wondering
where you was gonna go.
- 116. Well, uh, I was gonna go
over there by that fence.
- 117. Oh.
- 118. Yes, sir, that's McCabe, all right.
- 119. John McCabe.
- 120. Used to be called Pudgy McCabe.
He's got a big rep.
- 121. - I ain't never heard of him.
- Well, he's got a big rep.
- 122. Why'd they call him Pudgy?
He don't look so fat.
- 123. How in the hell would I know?
Anyway, he's the man that shot Bill Roundtree.
- 124. - I never heard of him either.
- I know Bill Roundtree.
- 125. Can't remember from where,
but I know the name.
- 126. He was nobody to mess with,
and that man out there taking a pee shot him.
- 127. He's got a big rep.
- 128. Gentlemen, the dealer
is none other than John McCabe.
- 129. Pudgy McCabe?
The man that shot Bill Roundtree.
- 130. - He really is a gunfighter.
- I told you. He's a gunfighter.
- 131. I don't care.
I'm gonna beat his ass.
- 132. - Ever hear of Bill Roundtree?
- He shot him? McCabe really shot him?
- 133. - Did you say Bill Roundtree?
- 134. - Well, I knew Bill Roundtree.
- Who is he?
- 135. He was a – He was a governor.
He was running for governor in Wyoming.
- 136. Jeremy, you are so full of shit.
- 137. Damn, out there it kinda makes you
feel like a three-squirt dog in a 30-mile wind.
- 138. - That egg's raw, ain't it?
- 139. Okay.
- 140. Tell me something, boys.
Who owns the property around here?
- 141. Sheehan owns all the property
this side of town.
- 142. Yeah, the Chinese don't own no property.
They just poachin' mines.
- 143. Yeah, and Joe Shortreed,
J.J., Bill Cubbs and myself
- 144. own that hole
the other side of the church.
- 145. McCabe.
- 146. Uh, how long you figure on staying?
- 147. Well, these boys got my tit in a wringer here.
I hate to move on when I'm losing.
- 148. Well, you can flop here for two bits a night.
Come on. I'll show you.
- 149. Sorry. Uh...
- 150. Oh. Come on.
- 151. What would you think if I, uh,
- 152. cut my beard off
and just, uh, left my mustache?
- 153. What do you wanna do that for?
- 154. - You got many Chinks around here?
- Just turn over a rock.
- 155. - Who sells them their mud? You?
- Not me.
- 156. I sell whiskey. I don't tolerate
opium smokers round here.
- 157. Well...
- 158. Shit.
- 159. Why don't you do like I do?
- 160. I just trim a little bit off the sides there,
straight down to the chin.
- 161. Down, huh?
- 162. I wouldn't stay up there if it was free
- 163. and you had a goddamn
San Francisco whore in every bed.
- 164. All right, he's –
Dealer's coming back.
- 165. —Hey, Bart.
- 166. You know how to square a circle?
You shove a four-by-four up a mule's ass.
- 167. - Shall we make this a quarter game then?
- Quarter? You got it!
- 168. Sheehan, bring these boys
a bottle on me, huh?
- 169. Potatoes! Hot potatoes for a penny!
- 170. Hot potatoes, a penny!
- 171. You don't know what you're doing, McCabe.
You got no experience at this.
- 172. I need two more.
- 173. All right, I got one more I can let you have.
You wait a minute.
- 174. Kate, come on out here.
- 175. You can have her, but you're
gonna have to get her some teeth.
- 176. All right. How much for three?
- 177. Three? Eighty dollars each.
- 178. Eighty dollars for a chippie, huh?
I can get a goddamn horse for 50.
- 179. I'll give you $200 for the three of 'em.
- 180. I'll be goddamn lucky if this here
little split-tail makes it through the winter.
- 181. You made a mighty long ride down here.
You must need 'em bad.
- 182. - Archer, let's get the guns on the table.
- Fuck the table.
- 183. - You don't know nothin' about it.
- Listen to me, you son of a bitch.
- 184. Tell me how many spare chippies
you got in there,
- 185. you goddamn butternut muff-diver,
and I'll tell you how many I need.
- 186. - I've got two I can spare.
- That's bullshit. Bullshit!
- 187. I want three.
- 188. You want three.
- 189. Tell you what I'm gonna do.
- 190. You want three for $200, right?
- 191. I think maybe we can work out a deal.
Come on. I'll buy you a drink.
- 192. How much farther
is this town anyway?
- 193. You still bitching your ass off?
- 194. The farther away you stay
from any town, the better.
- 195. Come on. Get.
- 196. Come on, Alma, hang on.
- 197. And I couldn't complain
to have his butt so near.
- 198. - He knew you were a whore.
- You never stop, do ya?
- 199. Listen, with an ass like you got,
you don't feel anything.
- 200. Where's Berg? Hey, where's Berg?
- 201. Where's the tents?
- 202. Hey, Bart, hold it. Berg? Where's Berg?
- 203. Hey, Jeremy, McCabe wants you.
- 204. Yeah. Okay. Coming.
- 205. The tents ain't up.
How come the tents ain't up?
- 206. How do you like it?
We did quite a bit of work while you were gone.
- 207. - Where's the tents?
- The tents?
- 208. - For the ladies.
- Aw, geez, the tents.
- 209. Uh, well, you know,
the roofing material didn't come in,
- 210. so we had to start on the front here.
- 211. We can get, uh – We can –
We can get them up for you by tomorrow.
- 212. We would have had them up, uh –
We would have had them up by now
- 213. except, uh, Robbie's had the runs,
- 214. so we've been trying not to
use him too much this week.
- 215. It's been going around, Mr. McCabe.
- 216. Mrs. Dunn, she's, uh –
Mrs. Dunn's been poorly too, so –
- 217. so we, uh, decided to put the...
- 218. Riley, you gonna talk to 'em?
- 219. They're very difficult to install
on account of the rain we been gettin'.
- 220. Come over and play at my house.
- 221. We had to use the canvas for the tents
up on the roof because of the rain.
- 222. Oh, hell, I'm gonna talk to 'em.
- 223. - That's a real pretty dress.
- Get your hands off!
- 224. - Yeah, come on.
- Let her go, you –
- 225. What the hell's going on?
- 226. Hey, hey! Come on, come on. Come on!
- 227. Get up.
- 228. Berg, you won't be...
- 229. - Son of a bitch.
- Just go on up.
- 230. What the hell are you – Ain't you boys never
seen no strumpet before, for Christ's sake?
- 231. Robbie, you got a job to do, ain't you?
- 232. Ain't nobody gonna touch one of them
little ladies till we're open for business.
- 233. And we ain't open for business
until we get them goddamn tents up.
- 234. - Now you get on back to work.
- You heard what he said.
- 235. Get your ass off your shoulder
and we'll have a little fun around here.
- 236. Boys gotta make up your mind
if you want your cookies.
- 237. 'Cause I've got girls up here
that can do more tricks
- 238. than a goddamn monkey
on a hundred yards of grapevine.
- 239. Hey, Kate, I think I bust my cherry.
- 240. - There we go.
- Oh, that feels good.
- 241. - There. That's really good.
- 242. Excuse me, ladies.
I'll be back in a few minutes.
- 243. - I have to go to the pot.
- 244. I have to go to the pot
and I don't think I can hold it.
- 245. Hyah!
- 246. Well, uh...
- 247. I got to hand it to you, Pudgy.
- 248. John.
- 249. Call me McCabe, tallywacker.
I'll know who you mean.
- 250. You know I want to be your friend,
don't you, McCabe?
- 251. Yeah? Why?
- 252. Well, you and me is the only two
real businessmen in Presbyterian Church.
- 253. Now, that ain't a whole lot
to have in common, is it?
- 254. Well... you're a Catholic, ain't ya?
- 255. Nope.
- 256. Oh.
- 257. Well, uh...
- 258. the minute I seen you ride into town,
I knew you was a man to be reckoned with.
- 259. That's a lot of shit and you know it.
- 260. Now, tell me what the hell
you come up here for.
- 261. And move away from that stove.
- 262. You get kinda ripe when it's warm.
- 263. Now, listen, McCabe.
- 264. I'm no dummy.
- 265. You're no dummy.
- 266. You know what's
gonna happen to this town
- 267. when it gets big enough to have
three saloons, maybe even four, hmm?
- 268. You and me are gonna form a partnership.
- 269. A partnership that'll keep any outsider
from coming in here
- 270. and building another saloon
- 271. without you and me saying it's all right
and taking our cut.
- 272. Huh? What do you say to that?
- 273. Partners is what
I come up here to get away from.
- 274. Sometimes you can't have things
your own way.
- 275. Sometimes you got to make a deal.
- 276. Yeah? Well, deals I don't mind.
It's partners I don't like. Sit down, Sheehan.
- 277. Now you listen to me.
- 278. Over the past few weeks, I've taken a funny
kind of liking to you, you son of a bitch.
- 279. And I wanna make one goddamn thing
goddamn clear to you.
- 280. Yeah.
- 281. Sheehan, if a frog had wings he wouldn't
bump his ass so much. You follow me?
- 282. Yeah.
- 283. Look. More whores.
- 284. Ah, shut up, woman. How do you know
it isn't Bart's mail-order bride?
- 285. Damn it, I'll bet it is her.
- 286. Ida!
- 287. - Ida!
- 288. Ida! Ida, it's me! Bartley Coyle!
- 289. Ida, I think this is for you.
- 290. Oh. Are you –
- 291. Are you Ida? Well, here.
- 292. Here, jump off. I'll help you.
- 293. Go ahead. I'll help you.
- 294. Just go ahead. Jump.
- 295. Oh, good. How was the trip?
- 296. Oh, McCabe. McCabe, this is Ida.
- 297. Ida, this is McCabe.
He's, uh, building this saloon.
- 298. Well, come along
and I'll show you our place.
- 299. It ain't much now,
but I'm really planning on fixing it up.
- 300. You John McCabe?
- 301. - Yeah.
- Mrs. Miller.
- 302. Come from Bearpaw to see you.
- 303. This your place?
- 304. Uh, yes, ma'am.
- 305. Saloon, eh?
- 306. All of that is gonna be
saloon and gambling.
- 307. Did you say you come up here
from Bearpaw to see me?
- 308. Ma'am, uh...
is there something I can do for you?
- 309. Do you have anything to eat?
I'm bloody starving.
- 310. Took six hours to get up here
in that flipping contraption.
- 311. Uh... well, you'll have to forgive me.
My kitchen ain't in operation yet.
- 312. But I could take you up to the restaurant
up there, if you're hungry enough.
- 313. I'm hungry enough.
I could eat a bloody horse.
- 314. Well, at Sheehan's place
you probably will.
- 315. Found a frontier wit, I see.
- 316. - Just go right up the stairs there.
- 317. Andy, you take mine.
- 318. Whores? I can tell the difference.
- 319. You can always tell a real genteel lady
by the way she walks.
- 320. Any news from down in Bearpaw?
It's been a while since I been –
- 321. How many men are there round here?
- 322. Well, this here is an interesting town.
- 323. There's gon' be upwards
of a hundred, 125 men before long.
- 324. Oh. You...
- 325. What do you think, Smalley?
- 326. About what?
- 327. Don't you see nothin' different?
- 328. No.
- 329. - Sheehan.
- 330. - Sheehan.
- 331. Aha. Company, I see.
- 332. What you got for supper, Sheehan?
- 333. Uh, got some nice tripe and, uh,
Mrs. Dunn just puttin' the stew on the fire.
- 334. Got any more
of them mountain oysters?
- 335. M – Uh, got some nice deer meat.
- 336. - Got any eggs? Fresh eggs?
- Yeah, fresh eggs, yeah.
- 337. I'd have four eggs, fried, some stew,
and I want some strong tea.
- 338. Strong tea. Right. Uh, McCabe?
- 339. Uh, I'll just have my double whiskey
and a raw egg.
- 340. Right.
- 341. Move it.
- 342. And, Sheehan,
give all them boys a drink on me.
- 343. Yeah.
- 344. Hey.
- 345. You know, if you want to make out
you're such a fancy dude,
- 346. you ought to wear something besides
that cheap Jockey Club cologne.
- 347. I don't even care
what you think I am. Seems to me...
- 348. Listen, Mr. McCabe.
- 349. I'm a whore and I know
an awful lot about whorehouses.
- 350. And I know that if you had a house up here,
you'd stand to make yourself a lot of money.
- 351. Now, this is all you gotta do –
put up the money for the house.
- 352. I'll do all the rest – I'll look after the girls,
the business, the expenses,
- 353. the running, the furnishing, everything.
- 354. And I'll pay you back any money
you put in the house
- 355. so's you won't lose nothin'.
- 356. And we'll make it 50-50.
- 357. Excuse me. You know I already got
a whorehouse operating up here.
- 358. Can't call them crib cows whores.
- 359. I'm talking about a proper sporting house
with class girls and clean linen
- 360. and proper hygiene.
- 361. Well, I don't think you're gonna
find my clientele up here,
- 362. uh, too interested in that sort of thing.
- 363. They will be, once they get a taste of it.
- 364. I'm telling you, with someone up here
to handle all them punters properly,
- 365. you could make yourself at least double
the money you'll make on your own.
- 366. What makes you think I ain't thought of that?
Them tents, you know, they's just temporary.
- 367. What do you do
when one girl fancies another?
- 368. How do you know
when a girl really has her monthly
- 369. or when she's just taking a few days off?
- 370. What about when they don't get their monthlies?
'Cause they don't. What do you do then?
- 371. I suppose you know all about seeing to that.
And what about the customers?
- 372. Who's gonna skin them back
and inspect them? You?
- 373. What you –
- 374. If you don't, this town will be clapped up
inside of two weeks, if it's not already.
- 375. What about when business is slow?
- 376. You just gonna let the girls
sit around on their bums?
- 377. 'Cause I'll tell you, when a good whore
gets time to sit around and think,
- 378. four out of five times she'll turn to religion
'cause that's what they was born with.
- 379. When that happens, you find yourself filling
the bloody church instead of your own pockets.
- 380. I haven't got time to sit and talk to a man
who's too dumb to see a good proposition.
- 381. Do we make a deal, or don't we?
- 382. Well?
- 383. Shit, I ain't taking no goddamn bath.
- 384. I don't give a shit if I...
- 385. Hmm.
- 386. - Yeah, keep it on the...
- Watch the landing.
- 387. The landing's all right.
- 388. This is the last night of this for me.
You want more, you can shove it up your ass.
- 389. She's bringing them girls
all the way from Seattle.
- 390. Real first-class fancy women, I hear.
- 391. I can't imagine nobody paying no 25 cents
for a goddamn bath though.
- 392. Two bits ain't too bad.
Cheapest bath in Bearpaw is 35 cents.
- 393. I wouldn't take one if they was free.
- 394. Why you guys
so against taking a bath?
- 395. I ain't. I don't like
being told when, that's all.
- 396. It's that Miller woman.
She's the one behind this.
- 397. Well, Mr. McCabe, how does she look?
- 398. Goddamn good.
- 399. McCabe, go ask Mrs. Miller
when them new whores are coming into town.
- 400. I don't see what's the matter
with the ones we've got.
- 401. Hold your water, tallywacker.
- 402. You think I'm gonna let some goddamn chippie
tell me how to run a gooseberry ranch?
- 403. You got the goddamn saddle
on the wrong horse.
- 404. Them girls will come up here
when I goddamn tell them to come up here.
- 405. As I recall, I'm paying you boys
15 cents an hour
- 406. after you've been
in them goddamn mines all day
- 407. so's you'll have something to do at night
- 408. 'sides go home and play
with Mary Five Fingers.
- 409. Right, Berg?
- 410. That's right, Mr. McCabe.
- 411. You heard what he said.
- 412. He's paying us 15 cents an hour after we've
been working in the mines all goddamn day
- 413. so we'll have something else to do
'cept play with Five-Fingered Mary.
- 414. Oh, shut up, Jeremy.
- 415. Mrs. Miller.
- 416. I wish to have a word with you,
- 417. - You gonna open that door?
- 418. All right.
- 419. I asked to have a simple word with you
and nothing else,
- 420. and if you think that
I'm gon' have this conversation –
- 421. — through this door,
- 422. that's just fine with me.
- 423. Mrs. Miller, I want to know when them girls
is getting in here from Seattle.
- 424. I've got them boys
working on your bathhouse,
- 425. and I got a right to know.
- 426. Paid for their... transportation.
- 427. I think you think I'm nothin' but a bank.
- 428. So far you've cost me
nothin' but money.
- 429. Money and pain.
- 430. Pain, pain, pain.
- 431. Come on. Giddap there.
- 432. Hyah!
- 433. Hyah! Ho! Come on, Whitey! Hyah! Ho!
- 434. Ho! Come on! Ho!
- 435. Hyah! Come on! Giddap there! Hyah!
- 436. Ho! Ho! Come on! Giddap!
- 437. Hyah! Ho! Ho!
- 438. Whoa! Whoa!
- 439. Believe these ladies
are looking for you, ma'am.
- 440. - My God, what happened?
- Wagon broke down maybe a mile back.
- 441. I've got most of the things in here.
- 442. Lou! Ah Ping!
- 443. Fetch the ladies' luggage.
Quick as you can. Go on.
- 444. Allow me to introduce my wife.
This is Mrs. Washington.
- 445. My name is Sumner Washington.
I'm a barber by profession.
- 446. Pleased to meet you.
- 447. Lil?
- 448. Thought you'd like to look
at my beautiful ladies.
- 449. Give them a hot bath.
Go on. Quick, get the water heating.
- 450. How are you, Constance? My ass is frozen!
- 451. Yeah, well, that's what
half the boys say about you, dear.
- 452. - You told us there was gonna be a house here.
- Keep your hair on!
- 453. I'm building a bloody palace
here for you girls. Come on.
- 454. - Right now I'm gonna give you a bath.
- All I seen is a bunch of dried-up Chinks.
- 455. - I'm not fucking any Chinamen.
- Oh, shut up, Maisie!
- 456. You ever know a Chink
wanna fuck another Chink
- 457. when there's a white woman around?
- 458. - Come on!
- Stop whining or I'll scratch your eyes out.
- 459. Get in there.
- 460. Cor blimey! How they do go on.
- 461. You said in your letter there was
a house here. You call this a house?
- 462. I had to get something out of it.
- 463. You stole that from Christine!
- 464. That's a goddamn rotten lie.
I paid $13 for it.
- 465. Aw, shut up, Eunice.
You're always bloody well complaining.
- 466. - Dollar to you, Jack.
- 467. - Riley?
- 468. Say, do you know what I heard?
- 469. I heard one of them girls they were bringing up
was an authentic Chinese princess.
- 470. Do you think that's true
what they say about Chinese girls?
- 471. Horseshit. If that was true,
their legs would fall off.
- 472. Oh, come on!
- 473. It's true.
- 474. You see, if you notice their eyes,
the way they slant, you know,
- 475. - and the way they tip up at the side,
- 476. well, that's –
that's true for their whole –
- 477. that's true – that's true
for the rest of their bodies.
- 478. A friend of mine, Amos Lindville,
down in Sacramento, California,
- 479. he once spent five dollars to find out.
- 480. Five dollars he spent just to have a look.
- 481. And he said it's true. It's true.
- 482. A guy like Amos Lindville
isn't gonna spend five dollars
- 483. just to find out something
that isn't true.
- 484. I'm a cook now.
I'm not a whore anymore.
- 485. You're just
throwing your training away.
- 486. All that experience, Lily. It's unfair.
- 487. Wait till you see this place
when we get it finished.
- 488. It's really gonna be something.
Gonna be really fancy.
- 489. You know, the whorehouses down
in South America are really unusual.
- 490. - You were down in South America?
- I was down there when I was a boy.
- 491. They're really unusual. They're not
like this at all. They're not fancy at all.
- 492. They're just sort of mud huts.
You know, mud houses.
- 493. You get a family of people
working in these mud houses.
- 494. And the women in the family are whores.
- 495. - And the parents, they sell their own kids?
- That's right.
- 496. - McCABE: You know where Berg is, Smalley?
- In there.
- 497. Has he had a bath?
- 498. Madam, I'm not here as a customer.
- 499. - Berg?
- You looking for me, Mr. McCabe?
- 500. - Tryin' to put me out of business, Berg?
- Well, uh –
- 501. Oh, these order forms. Yeah, well,
that's all right because that, uh –
- 502. - How much is that Chinese girl?
- A dollar fifty, like all the rest.
- 503. - Does that go for Mrs. Miller too?
- No. She's five dollars.
- 504. - Five dollars?
- You get exactly what you ordered.
- 505. - Is that right, Mrs. Miller?
- What's that?
- 506. - Five dollars for you.
- That's right.
- 507. Jesus Christ, that's a lot of money.
- 508. Shit. All right, then, let's go.
- 509. You must be rich or somethin'.
- 510. Because it's in your own best interest
to have these forms
- 511. and to make sure they're signed.
- 512. Come on, Mr. Quigley.
Ain't scared of me, are you?
- 513. Once you've got everything you ordered,
you can tell because you've got proof.
- 514. You've got my signature on these order forms,
and that's all that you'll need.
- 515. So that's it.
- 516. Unless, of course, you'd like us to stay around
and see if maybe someone doesn't...
- 517. No, you go ahead.
- 518. I've got my tit in the wringer
on these books.
- 519. I can't tell the goddamn owls
from the chickens.
- 520. Fourteen.
- 521. Fourteen and eight.
- 522. Fourteen and eight. Fourteen and eight.
- 523. —Get out of here!
- 524. Why are you always in such a lousy temper?
- 525. Because, my dear Mrs. Miller,
- 526. I not only built you
your gooseberry ranch,
- 527. I've paid for a bathhouse I don't need,
- 528. I've paid for transportation,
- 529. I've paid for towels and linens,
an enema bag.
- 530. I've paid for things them chippies of yours
don't even know how to use.
- 531. But I have not sold a full bottle of whiskey
in here today, and that's a fact.
- 532. And that, my dear Mr. McCabe,
is 'cause every geezer in this town
- 533. was taking a bath in your bathhouse
or having it off with a girl in your whorehouse.
- 534. Well, I ain't seen none of that money, and what
my books tell me I need most right now is money.
- 535. Whorehouse, bathhouse money
for the first week.
- 536. We're short on the bath money
'cause of the first night's rush,
- 537. but I'll see it doesn't happen again.
- 538. Well, I'm not surprised you don't know how much
money you've got and how much you ain't.
- 539. You've got your credit column
on a different page from your debits.
- 540. Hey, I'll thank you to keep your little nose
out of things you don't understand.
- 541. - What's 14 from 23?
- 542. You heard me. Fourteen from 23.
- 543. Nine.
- 544. Nine plus 16?
- 545. - Twenty-five. Five and –
- My dear madam!
- 546. I can hold my own in any game of chance
with any amount you can count
- 547. and figure out payoffs
before you can blink an eye.
- 548. Don't give me them horse puckies just 'cause
it takes me time to write it up formal.
- 549. Well, if you're so bloody smart,
then you'd know
- 550. that if we bought the windows
and doors for the whorehouse,
- 551. you'd make twice as much money!
- 552. Or perhaps you like the idea of screwing
with the wind whistling up your Khyber!
- 553. How come whenever you talk about
spending money, you say "we"?
- 554. I say "we," Mr. McCabe,
because you think small!
- 555. You think small
'cause you're afraid to think big.
- 556. I'm telling you, you have to spend money
to make money.
- 557. You want to spend the rest of your life
shuffling cards in this dump? Fine. I don't!
- 558. There's gonna come a time –
- 559. There's gonna come a time when I sell you
me half interest, go to San Francisco
- 560. and buy me a legitimate boardinghouse.
- 561. But right now I don't want no small-timer
screwing up me business!
- 562. Boardinghouse, huh?
- 563. Like to get a good look at them boarders.
- 564. Hey!
- 565. Where do you think you're off to?
- 566. Money and pain.
- 567. Pain, pain, pain.
- 568. Hey, Al, look at this!
- 569. - Hey, hon, you work at Mrs. Miller's?
- That's my wife, you son of a bitch!
- 570. - Come on! I'd pay her!
- Goddamn you!
- 571. Bart!
- 572. You son of a – You young –
- 573. Grab him. Grab him.
- 574. For Christ's sake. Hold him, will ya?
- 575. - Come on! Hold him!
- Shit, Bart.
- 576. - Come on. Hold it.
- Easy, easy, easy.
- 577. - Bart?
- Jesus Christ.
- 578. There's blood,
and his head's all busted open.
- 579. Come on, let's pick him up.
- 580. - Come on. Pick him up. Come on. Get him up!
- Get the other leg.
- 581. Take it slow.
- 582. I don't have much time.
- 583. Hey, who's with the bottle of gin?
- 584. - Well, it's – That's in my room.
- 585. - Kate!
- I'll get it.
- 586. Alma, you go and get it. Where is it?
- 587. Under me pillow.
- 588. It's under her pillow.
- 589. Booze stays down here, Blanche.
- 590. Girls, she's gonna be in in a minute.
- 591. - How are we doing? Nearly finished?
- Well, I took some of the pink off.
- 592. Well, you think you could
write "Birdie" there?
- 593. - Think you can do that?
- 594. All right.
- 595. You like this?
You like this? Pink and white.
- 596. Yeah, very pretty. Tasty, yeah.
- 597. Thank you very much.
I'll get back to you later.
- 598. Mr. McCabe?
- 599. Mr. McCabe?
- 600. Excuse me.
My name is Sears. Eugene Sears.
- 601. Oh. And I'm Roebuck.
Who's watching the store?
- 602. I'm, uh – I'm with M.H. Harris
and Shaughnessey Mining Company.
- 603. We'd like to have a talk, if we could.
- 604. No shit.
- 605. Truth of the matter is, Mr. McCabe,
- 606. we're interested
in the mining deposits up here.
- 607. Well, the truth of the matter is
that I would like to have a little drink.
- 608. - Would you care to join me?
- We'd like to buy you a drink, Mr. McCabe.
- 609. Wait a minute. You got a turd in your pocket
or something? Who the hell is "we"?
- 610. This is Ernie Hollander. He's with me.
- 611. - Ah. You want a drink, Ernie?
- Sure, I'd like a drink.
- 612. - But my stomach can't handle it anymore.
- 613. Look, Mr. McCabe,
I don't want you to misunderstand.
- 614. Oh, no, there's nothing to misunderstand.
- 615. You want to buy out the zinc, go ahead.
I don't own any goddamn zinc mines.
- 616. Hey, Robbie,
get us a bottle up here, will ya.
- 617. Hey, you boys know about the –
- 618. you boys know about the frog
who got ate by the eagle?
- 619. Here's this, uh, big old eagle.
- 620. He swooped down
and gobbled up this little frog, see?
- 621. And the little frog is inside the eagle
and they're way up in the air,
- 622. and the frog is working his way back
in the eagle, working his way back.
- 623. And he looked out of the eagle's ass
and he says, "Hey, eagle!"
- 624. He says, "Oh!"
He says, uh, "How high up are we?"
- 625. And the eagle says, "Well," he says,
"we're up about a mile, two miles."
- 626. And the frog says, he says,
- 627. "Well, uh, you wouldn't shit me now,
- 628. That's good.
That's really good, Mr. McCabe.
- 629. - I'll have to remember that.
- 630. Now, Mr. McCabe, uh,
- 631. we know you're a businessman,
and we're businessmen, so, uh,
- 632. what we'd like to do is
make you an offer –
- 633. buy out all your holdings
here in Presbyterian Church.
- 634. All right. How much?
- 635. - I'd like to point out a few things first.
- Why don't you just tell me how much.
- 636. Then you can point out all the goddamn things
you – What the hell kind of coat is that?
- 637. - That's seal skin.
- 638. Uh, the company won't go
over $5,500. I know that.
- 639. Well, that, uh, ain't high enough, is it?
- 640. Now listen, we just bought out
Sheehan down there for 1,600.
- 641. Hotel, his livery stable, the whole works.
- 642. Well, now, you certainly got
fucked there, didn't you?
- 643. Listen, uh, Mr. McCabe,
if we can't talk this over reasonably –
- 644. We were empowered to work with you
because we were led to believe
- 645. that you were the town's leading citizen,
- 646. a man of good common sense,
if you know what I mean.
- 647. Roebuck, uh, you know,
- 648. if a frog had wings
he wouldn't bump his ass so much.
- 649. - You follow me?
- 650. Well, I got better offers than that
from Monkey Ward.
- 651. So if you boys wanna talk business with me,
- 652. what you gotta do is, you gotta get your offer
way up there in the air where it belongs.
- 653. Uh, Smalley, fill up that,
uh, no-limit game for me, will ya.
- 654. Well, now, what do you think of that?
- 655. He's a real smart-ass, he is.
- 656. Let's go.
- 657. Happy birthday, Birdie!
- 658. Oh, look at the beautiful cake!
- 659. Oh, it's –
- 660. Did you make that, Lily? It's beautiful.
- 661. Oh. I could never blow 'em out.
- 662. Oh! Well, Mr. McCabe isn't –
- 663. Don't worry about McCabe.
I don't think he'll be over tonight.
- 664. - Uh, well, he was tying one on.
- 665. - Oh.
- Come on.
- 666. - No, you got to make a wish.
- 667. - Um –
What'd you wish?
- 668. I –
- 669. I can't do that.
- 670. - Take them all out.
- I want the one with the flower.
- 671. Bend my head down.
No, thank you. I'd just like a piece of cake.
- 672. It's just so exciting!
- 673. I want the one with the flower!
- 674. Oh, Connie, aren't you gonna
stay and have a piece of my cake?
- 675. What's wrong with her?
- 676. She's gotten into one of them quiet times.
- 677. - Who's that?
- Uh, uh, it's... me.
- 678. - What do you want?
- Well, uh –
- 679. O-Open the door. Come on.
- 680. Listen, don't think you can fool me
with that Bay Rum again,
- 681. 'cause it won't work.
- 682. You had a bath?
- 683. Madam, I've been in the goddamn water
so long, my ass is wrinkled up.
- 684. Now, open the door.
- 685. You make me sick sometimes.
- 686. Couldn't you even turn up
for that poor little girl's birthday party?
- 687. I'll tell you something, little lady.
- 688. A couple gimpers come in the saloon tonight
and offered to buy me out.
- 689. My whole spread.
- 690. Who'd do a dull thing like that?
- 691. Well, uh, uh –
- 692. It's, uh, "Harrison," Shaughnessey,
something like that.
- 693. Offered me $5,500.
- 694. Take your hat off the bed. It's bad luck.
- 695. $5,500. 'Tain't bad, eh, Mrs. Miller?
- 696. I played it smart as a possum. I give 'em a "no"
and went right on about my business.
- 697. Just turned them down flat as a pancake.
- 698. See, what's gonna happen is,
they're gonna come back with a better offer.
- 699. And, uh, I think your share
is gonna be, uh –
- 700. - Well, let me see.
- 701. What did you say?
- 702. I should have known.
- 703. Huh?
- 704. You turned down Harris and Shaughnessey.
You know who they are?
- 705. Of course I know who they are.
- 706. Well, you just better hope they come back.
- 707. They'd as soon put a bullet in your back
as look at you.
- 708. Shh! It's Kate and Mr. Anderson.
- 709. - Is Mr. McCabe in there with her?
- How would I know?
- 710. Get out. A dollar doesn't give you
the right to get dressed in here.
- 711. I don't have a whole lot of time.
- 712. - You just got no respect.
- Two gentlemen downstairs
- 713. to see Mr. McCabe.
- 714. —Is he in there with you?
- 715. Yes.
- 716. Now, our Mr. McCabe'll be with you in just
a wee minute, so you wait right there now.
- 717. You're, uh, spending your profits, huh?
- 718. Fantastic.
- 719. - Ah, gentlemen.
- Oh, Mr. McCabe.
- 720. - You gentlemen smoke cigars?
- Uh, no. No, thank you.
- 721. - Uh, Mr. McCabe, Mr. Hollander and I –
- Here, here, here.
- 722. - Put one in there.
- Thank you.
- 723. We appreciate you wanting to take
a strong position on this thing.
- 724. In fact, we admire it.
- 725. - Ernie, uh, do you want to –
- No, no, you go right ahead, Eugene.
- 726. Well, what we'd like to do is,
we'd like to make a new approach.
- 727. Oh? Okay.
- 728. Well, you remember,
uh, our offer this evening?
- 729. Uh... an offer...
- 730. No.
- 731. - Well, it was $5,500.
- Now, that's why I don't remember it.
- 732. $5,500.
- 733. Well, Ernie, I think we can get the company
to come up with another $750.
- 734. That would make it 6,250, yeah.
- 735. Of course, we'd have to have
an immediate answer on that.
- 736. Well, Mr. Sears, uh,
- 737. the immediate answer to that would be no.
- 738. —Aaah! No, no.
- 739. I have to tell you the rest of my story.
- 740. Excuse me. If I may intercede here.
- 741. Mr. McCabe. May I call you John?
- 742. - Of course.
- I have a son called John, not unlike you.
- 743. You've done a wonderful job here.
- 744. You've built up a beautiful
little business in no time at all.
- 745. And here we are, ready to give you
a substantial gain in capital,
- 746. an offer from one of the most solid
companies in the United States.
- 747. And you say no.
- 748. Well, uh, frankly, I don't understand.
- 749. Uh, I guess I don't have to tell you
- 750. that some of our people
are going to be quite concerned.
- 751. You know what I mean?
- 752. Well, the way I feel about this is
that you gentlemen come up here
- 753. and you – you want a man in my position
to sell off his property.
- 754. And I think there's got to be
a good reason.
- 755. Now, I would think
that a pretty good reason
- 756. would be $14,000, $15,000.
- 757. But why don't you gentlemen come on over
to my place tomorrow morning for breakfast,
- 758. and we'll just talk about it.
- 759. Say about 8:00?
- 760. Blanche, Birdie. Come on over here
for a minute, will you?
- 761. Now, this here is Mr. Sears
- 762. - and Mr. –
- 763. - Mr. Sears, how are you?
- 764. Now, you just take good care
of these gentlemen.
- 765. You look lovely tonight.
- 766. Would you like to have a drink,
or would you like to go upstairs?
- 767. Everything's on me.
- 768. - Is that your pleasure, upstairs?
- We haven't had dinner yet.
- 769. You don't need it.
- 770. Come on, Constance, open up.
- 771. Constance?
- 772. Come on, Constance.
- 773. Goddamn, I never knew nobody in my life
spent so much time behind locked doors.
- 774. - No –
- Oh, what a nice velour.
- 775. - Look at that.
- No, I'm sorry.
- 776. Does it go on this way?
Ah, isn't that nice?
- 777. - Ah, come on. Did you want to play?
- No, no.
- 778. - Sure, you do. Look at this.
- They have to go now.
- 779. What do you mean?
You're no fun at all.
- 780. No, we haven't had dinner.
We're going to go eat.
- 781. Well, see, when you get yourself
in a gambling situation,
- 782. you've got to know
when the other fellow's bluffin'.
- 783. Didn't I tell you them two gimpers
would come back to me, huh?
- 784. I told you. You see, once in a while,
- 785. if you could just learn to trust me, Constance,
everything gonna be a lot easier.
- 786. You'll find that out.
- 787. How high do you think they'll go?
- 788. I don't know.
- 789. Tomorrow morning at breakfast
is gonna tell the tale.
- 790. You're a funny little thing.
- 791. Sometimes you're just as sweet,
- 792. and at other times –
- 793. Listen, Ernie, we'll make a deal, all right?
- 794. We'll only have to come up another
thousand dollars, but we'll make it.
- 795. He's negotiating.
- 796. We'll close this deal for $7,000.
- 797. - Well, 6,250.
- I don't think so.
- 798. He hasn't the brains.
- 799. I want to turn it over to Jake.
- 800. Oh, come on.
Let's not give up on him now.
- 801. Now, listen, son,
if you want to hang around here
- 802. and try and knock some sense
into that fool's head, that's up to you.
- 803. I'm going back right now.
- 804. After 17 years,
I think I deserve something better
- 805. than being sent out
on a goddamn snipe hunt like this.
- 806. He's impossible!
- 807. Yeah, okay, I guess you're right.
- 808. We tried.
- 809. Listen, you think that meat is all right?
- 810. God, I hope it wasn't rancid.
- 811. That's all I need on a trip like this
is a case of the runs.
- 812. How many times
have I told you to shut the hell up?
- 813. - Jesus Christ.
- 814. - Well, how is he?
- 815. He's out again.
- 816. Ain't come to again this time
for three hours.
- 817. Jesus Christ.
- 818. Bart Coyle went and got his head
bashed open last night.
- 819. - Yeah? How is he?
- 820. He keeps passing out.
- 821. I think he cracked it.
- 822. Hey, Robbie, I want you to break out
one of them jars of Damson preserves
- 823. I got sent up here from Portland.
- 824. Give him a little drink, will you?
- 825. Didn't I tell you three for breakfast?
- 826. Smalley said the others weren't coming.
- 827. Those other two, they left last night.
- 828. Oh, you handled them beautifully.
- 829. They knew they weren't dealing
with no tinhorn.
- 830. Almighty God in heaven,
who sees and knows all the sinful acts
- 831. - that offend him on this earth –
- 832. the swift and powerful blade of justice
lays open the serpent of people
- 833. and leaves its putrid flesh
to rot under the sun of heaven
- 834. and send its soul to burn forever
in hell's fire,
- 835. accept the toil of this servant
as atonement for his sins
- 836. and grant him entrance
into the kingdom of heaven
- 837. and everlasting life
at the foot of the almighty throne. Amen.
- 838. - You're not going down there, are you?
- Ain't nothing to worry about. I told you that.
- 839. - Well, you got your gun on you?
- Uh, yeah.
- 840. Don't make no difference.
- 841. - What you want?
- Wait a minute, mister. I don't mean no –
- 842. - Then what you come up here for?
- I heard you had the fanciest whorehouse
- 843. in the whole territory up here.
- 844. Gee, it's been so long
since I had a piece of ass.
- 845. Well, you come on up here,
I'll show you what you're looking for.
- 846. What's cooking? I sure am hungry.
- 847. - What the hell is that?
- It's a carpet vacuum machine.
- 848. Oh, yeah?
- 849. Well, who wants to be next?
- 850. - Not me. I've got the curse.
- Which one of us do you fancy?
- 851. Ah, hell. Don't make no difference.
I'm gonna have you all.
- 852. Eh –
- 853. Goddamn.
- 854. Blanche, some mail come in today.
- 855. This here's for Mrs. Miller.
- 856. Oh. Oh, that must be
the new petticoat she ordered.
- 857. Oh, hi. Boy, they sure
weren't kidding about this place.
- 858. - What's that? Is that a letter for me?
- Uh –
- 859. That's for me.
- 860. I'll just take this on up to Mrs. Miller.
- 861. Mr. McCabe. She's got company.
- 862. Well, I'll just leave it here then.
- 863. Well, it just hurts so much.
- 864. I guess maybe I'm small?
- 865. No. You've just got to learn
to relax, that's all.
- 866. I think maybe this will do.
- 867. Stand up. Take your top off.
- 868. You've got to take your mind off it.
Think of something else, you know?
- 869. Look at a wall.
Count the roses in the wallpaper.
- 870. What are you doing?
There's nothing to hide.
- 871. See, the thing is, it don't mean nothing.
- 872. You never know.
You might even get to like it.
- 873. I mean, you managed it with Bart,
didn't you, eh?
- 874. Oh, yeah. You really are small,
aren't you? Just like me.
- 875. I'll get a few pins.
- 876. Oh, but with him, I had to.
It was my duty.
- 877. Turn around.
- 878. It weren't your duty, Ida.
- 879. You did it to pay for your bed and board.
- 880. And you do this
to pay for your bed and board too.
- 881. Only you get to keep a little extra for yourself
and you don't have to ask nobody for nothing.
- 882. Just more honest, to my mind.
- 883. Don't worry.
You're gonna do just fine here.
- 884. A dollar?
- 885. - Then I'm out.
- 886. - Okay, I'll bump you a dollar.
- Make it five.
- 887. - Quit looking at my damn cards.
- You don't got it.
- 888. Okay, I'll call you.
- 889. Got the aces.
- 890. Shit, you little fart.
You've been looking at my damn cards.
- 891. No, you don't know how to bet.
Anybody can tell what you got.
- 892. Come on. Get in.
- 893. Deal this hand for me.
- 894. McCabe, Webster's going down
the mountain today in his wagon.
- 895. What's that got to do with me?
- 896. Blanche says there's still time
to get on that boom around Portland.
- 897. She says that you can open a business
there for no money at all.
- 898. Somebody's gotta go there first, have a look.
I think you should go today with Webster.
- 899. I'm your partner.
You gotta listen to me.
- 900. What are you planning to do
about them blokes up there?
- 901. You talking about them boys up there?
- 902. Smalley's up there talking to 'em now.
He's gonna bring 'em down.
- 903. I'm gonna make a deal with them.
- 904. - What if they don't make a deal?
- Then I won't make a deal with them.
- 905. I'll just have a drink.
Would you care to join me in a drink?
- 906. You shouldn't worry what people think.
They won't even know.
- 907. Webster's covered his wagon now.
- 908. He found all this canvas,
and he's just covered his wagon.
- 909. He's covered his wagon.
No one would even –
- 910. Anyway, what the hell do you
have to answer to anyone for?
- 911. I mean, you bloody well own
this town, don't you?
- 912. I appreciate you warning me.
I appreciate that.
- 913. But there ain't nothing to be scared of.
I tell you the truth.
- 914. They're the ones that got
to make a deal, not me!
- 915. I feel sorry for 'em.
- 916. Them old gimpers been working that company
20 years. They don't know what to do.
- 917. The company says, "Get on up there
and make a deal with McCabe,
- 918. and don't come back till you done it."
- 919. Hell, when they come upside
a mule like me, I feel sorry for 'em.
- 920. I do. I really do. I feel sorry for 'em.
- 921. I know what I'm doin'.
- 922. I know what I'm doin'.
- 923. What's he carrying around
that bloody blunderbuss with him for then?
- 924. I don't know. Maybe he come up here
to hunt possum.
- 925. You want a drink or not?
- 926. Uh, they said there was nothing to talk about.
- 927. - Who said?
- His name's Butler.
- 928. Christ, the son of a bitch
must be seven feet tall.
- 929. Well, uh, did you invite them here
for a meal, or –
- 930. Yeah.
- 931. But they said they were
gonna eat at Sheehan's.
- 932. Smalley, give me four or five
of them stogies, will you?
- 933. They couldn't make a deal if you wanted to.
They get paid for killing, nothing else!
- 934. McCabe, you gotta go with Webster –
- 935. Thank you, Smalley.
- 936. I'll tell everybody you've got business.
- 937. I'll tell 'em you got business
with the company, if you like.
- 938. Well, I guess if a man's fool enough
to get in business with a woman,
- 939. she ain't gonna think much of him.
- 940. You don't even know
where the wealth of this town is.
- 941. Chinkyville. That's where it is.
Right down there in Chinatown.
- 942. —I'll be with you in a minute.
- 943. Up in Canada right now,
they're blasting tunnel under $10 a foot,
- 944. all done with the pigtail.
- 945. They've got some new explosives up there.
- 946. They give it to Johnny Chinaman,
send him in,
- 947. down comes 45, 50 tons of rock
- 948. and one dead Chinaman.
- 949. But you, sir. Do you know what the fine is
for killing a Chinaman?
- 950. Fifty dollars, maximum.
- 951. The inspector's working for the company.
Four times out of five, it's an accident.
- 952. You could do this right here
with your own zinc.
- 953. All you gotta do is to
give the bugger a box of this stuff,
- 954. put him down the hole,
up to the rock face –
- 955. —and there's your zinc.
- 956. Sixty-five cents a ton.
- 957. Uh, you must be Butler, huh?
- 958. Sir?
- 959. I'm John McCabe.
I think we got some business to talk over.
- 960. - Do you smoke cigars?
- Yes, I do.
- 961. - Oh.
- Have one of mine.
- 962. Oh.
- 963. Uh, shall we step into the bar?
We can get a little privacy.
- 964. No, we're fine here.
- 965. Uh, Sheehan,
set up a bottle on me, will you?
- 966. Bottle.
- 967. Uh, about that deal –
- 968. You know, uh, when them –
when them gentlemen come up here
- 969. and make me that offer,
- 970. there were a whole lot of things
that we didn't take into consideration.
- 971. How much did they offer you?
- 972. Well, uh, $5,500.
- 973. Well, they came up 750 from that,
so it's, uh, 6,250 they offered me.
- 974. Got that.
- 975. 6,250.
- 976. Yeah, but how much did you ask them for?
- 977. Uh, well, we never got around to that
'cause, uh, I –
- 978. Oh, I might have mentioned something
like $12,000, $10,000, something like that.
- 979. It was just to get 'em bargaining,
- 980. And to, uh –
Well, just so's they'd talk sense.
- 981. Yeah, but how much did you really want?
- 982. Uh, well, that depends.
- 983. I mean, they's talkin'
about all my holdings, um –
- 984. 8,000?
- 985. $8,000.
- 986. Well, uh, 7,500.
- 987. Probably more like it – more right.
- 988. You weren't very far apart, were you?
- 989. Oh, hell, no!
That's what I'm trying to tell you.
- 990. I don't know what they mean
by all my holdings.
- 991. All my holdings – Does that mean, uh,
my horses, my clothes, my underwear?
- 992. I don't know what it means.
- 993. Uh, well, the fact is, uh, shit,
- 994. I'd be willing to make a deal for 6,250,
if they don't count my personal property in that.
- 995. I mean, that's provided that they
buy my inventory separately.
- 996. How much is that?
- 997. Well, 350.
- 998. 300. 300.
- 999. And so you've got, uh, your 300, 6,250 –
- 1000. So that's...
- 1001. 6,550.
- 1002. 6,550.
- 1003. Well, let's just make that an even 6,500,
and you've got yourself a deal.
- 1004. I don't make deals.
- 1005. Uh, well, what you doing up here
if you don't make deals?
- 1006. I came up here to hunt bear.
- 1007. - I hear it's very good around here.
- Oh, get off!
- 1008. Bear.
- 1009. Uh –
- 1010. Uh, y-y-you don't work
for Harris and Shaughnessey?
- 1011. Sometimes.
- 1012. Only when they can't make a deal.
- 1013. Well, look,
that's what I'm trying to tell you.
- 1014. This here deal can be made.
- 1015. Not with me.
- 1016. Well – Hmm.
- 1017. I guess what I got to do
is get in touch with this fellow, Sears.
- 1018. I'll see you boys later.
- 1019. McCabe.
- 1020. Were you ever called Pudgy?
- 1021. A long time ago. Why?
- 1022. My best friend's best friend
was Bill Roundtree.
- 1023. Did you kill him?
- 1024. I was in a poker game when he got shot,
but, uh, I didn't kill him.
- 1025. Are you calling his best friend a liar?
- 1026. Wait a minute.
I ain't calling nobody a liar.
- 1027. Bill Roundtree got caught
marking the queens.
- 1028. He went for his gun
and he got shot, that's all.
- 1029. I'm going to count 10.
- 1030. If you are not on that bridge
by the time I'm finished,
- 1031. I'm going to get very cross with you.
- 1032. All right.
- 1033. I just want you boys to know
that, uh, I ain't wearing no gun.
- 1034. Patty, come here.
- 1035. Who the hell was this Bill Roundtree?
- 1036. Well, uh, he was real well-known.
- 1037. I mean, who said he shot him?
- 1038. I told you, everybody says
he shot him with a derringer.
- 1039. That man?
- 1040. That man never killed anybody.
- 1041. All the time making me feel like
I'm gonna make a fool out of myself.
- 1042. Now we're gonna see who the fools is.
- 1043. Son of a bitches.
- 1044. Never did fit in this goddamn town.
- 1045. God, I hate when them bastards
put their hands on you.
- 1046. I tell you, sometimes,
- 1047. sometimes when I take a look at you,
I just keep looking and looking.
- 1048. I wanna feel your little body
up against me so bad,
- 1049. I think I'm gonna bust.
- 1050. I keep trying to tell you
in a lot of different ways.
- 1051. Just one time you could be sweet
without no money around.
- 1052. I think I could –
- 1053. Well, I'll tell you something.
I got poetry in me.
- 1054. I do! I got poetry in me, but...
- 1055. I ain't gonna put it down on paper.
I ain't no educated man.
- 1056. I got sense enough not to try.
- 1057. Can't never say nothing to you.
- 1058. If you'd just one time
let me run the show, I'd –
- 1059. You're just freezing my soul,
that's what you're doing.
- 1060. Freezin' my soul.
- 1061. Well, shit! Enjoy yourself, girl.
- 1062. Just go ahead and have a time.
What the hell.
- 1063. That's just my luck.
- 1064. The only woman that's ever been one to me
ain't nothin' but a whore.
- 1065. But what the hell.
I never was a percentage man.
- 1066. I suppose a whore
is the only kind of woman I'd know.
- 1067. Uh, excuse me, ma'am.
- 1068. Um, is this fellow,
Eugene Sears, still here?
- 1069. No, he left this morning.
- 1070. Mm-hmm. Uh –
- 1071. Another fellow was with him,
uh, by the name of Ernie.
- 1072. - Mr. Hollander.
- Hollander. That's right.
- 1073. - Uh, I wonder if, uh, he's still here.
- No, he went with him.
- 1074. Well, thank you all the same.
- 1075. The law is here to protect
the little guy like yourself, McCabe.
- 1076. And I'm at your service, free of charge.
- 1077. - Free?
- That's what I said.
- 1078. You don't have to pay me anything.
- 1079. It would be an honor for the next senator
from the state of Washington
- 1080. to be your servant
before the scales of justice.
- 1081. Oh, that's mighty decent of you.
I don't know what –
- 1082. When a man, McCabe –
When a man goes into the wilderness
- 1083. and with his bare hands
gives birth to a small enterprise,
- 1084. nourishes it and tends it while it grows,
- 1085. I'm here to tell you that no dirty sons of bitches
are gonna take it away from him.
- 1086. - Now, ain't that right?
- Well, I – I –
- 1087. You're damn right it's right.
- 1088. Now you take that there company,
Harris and Shaughnessey.
- 1089. They have stockholders.
- 1090. Now, do you think they want
their stockholders and the public
- 1091. thinking that their management
isn't imbued with all the principles
- 1092. of fair play and justice,
- 1093. the very values that make
this country what it is today?
- 1094. Uh-huh.
- 1095. Busting up these trusts and monopolies
- 1096. is at the very root of the problem
of creating a just society.
- 1097. Damn it, McCabe, I'm here to tell you
- 1098. that this free enterprise system
of ours works.
- 1099. And working within it,
we can protect the small businessman
- 1100. and the big businessman as well.
- 1101. Well, I'll just didn't want to get killed.
- 1102. Until people stop dying for freedom,
they ain't gonna be free.
- 1103. I can see it now on the front page
of The Washington Post,
- 1104. right next to a picture
of William Jennings Bryan.
- 1105. "McCabe strikes a blow for the little guy."
- 1106. You're gonna become
a famous man, McCabe.
- 1107. We can find ourselves having dinner
with William Jennings Bryan.
- 1108. - Well, I –
- You're gonna be a hero.
- 1109. Aw, come on.
- 1110. You're gonna stare 'em down
and make them quake in their boots.
- 1111. Mm-hmm. Well, uh –
- 1112. What do we do?
We get the marshal and, uh –
- 1113. - No?
- You don't need the marshal.
- 1114. We're gonna do this through the courts.
- 1115. Well, now, I guess
what you're saying is that
- 1116. we get this thing in the papers
and in the courts and all that,
- 1117. well, they just can't afford to kill me.
- 1118. - Is that right?
- You're damn right that's right.
- 1119. They won't be able
to lift one little finger against you.
- 1120. There comes a time in every man's life,
Constance, when he just...
- 1121. got to stick his hand in the fire
- 1122. and, uh – and, uh, see
what he's made out of.
- 1123. What are you talking about?
- 1124. I'm talking about busting up
these trusts and monopolies.
- 1125. That's what I'm talking about.
- 1126. Somebody's got to protect the small
businessman from these big companies,
- 1127. and I'm gonna be the man.
- 1128. Constance, just 'cause
we ain't never talked about it
- 1129. don't mean I ain't got,
uh, certain principles.
- 1130. I know it don't mean nothing to you,
but I got a reputation in this town.
- 1131. - These people –
- What's Presbyterian Church to you?
- 1132. You're just gonna sell out!
- 1133. Just sell out and go someplace
where people are civilized.
- 1134. They'll get you, McCabe.
They'll get you.
- 1135. And they'll do something awful to you.
- 1136. Now, now, little lady,
ain't nothing gonna happen to me.
- 1137. Don't you give me
any of that "little lady" shit!
- 1138. I don't care about you!
Just give me my $1,500! I wanna make a deal.
- 1139. If you're not gonna make a deal with them,
then I'll make a deal with them!
- 1140. Make a deal?
- 1141. You can't make no deal.
- 1142. Bye, honey.
- 1143. - I'm gonna miss you.
- Yeah. I'm gonna miss you too.
- 1144. - Have a nice trip. Be a good boy.
- Don't worry. I will.
- 1145. Bye. Say bye to Mrs. Miller for me.
- 1146. Okay, good-bye.
- 1147. Look after yourself.
- 1148. —Be careful.
- 1149. Oh, yeah.
- 1150. Come back.
- 1151. - Bye, cowboy. Come back!
- I will.
- 1152. There's Shorty! Come on.
- 1153. - Bye, cowboy.
- 1154. I wasn't trying to hit it.
- 1155. The trick is not to hit it,
but to make it float.
- 1156. - Hey, hold it, sonny.
- 1157. Hold up on your target practice a minute.
I don't wanna get shot.
- 1158. Well, then get off the bridge,
you saddle tramp.
- 1159. I want to buy some socks.
I've got a long ride ahead of me.
- 1160. What's wrong with the socks you got on?
- 1161. I wore 'em out running around half naked
in that whorehouse over there.
- 1162. That's really quite a place.
You been there yet?
- 1163. Take off your boots and show me.
- 1164. You're joshing me.
- 1165. I said take off your boots
and show me, you egg sucker.
- 1166. I ain't gonna do that.
- 1167. What are you wearing that gun for?
- 1168. Nothing. I just wear it.
Can't hit nothing with it.
- 1169. Well, that don't make no sense.
What kind of a gun is it?
- 1170. - A Colt.
- Them's good guns.
- 1171. That's what I got.
- 1172. - There must be something wrong with it.
- No, it's me. I just can't shoot good.
- 1173. Well, let me see it.
