(38) “Deliver the Body”

Original Airdate:  (June 7, 1958)

Paladin is hired to bring the killer of a sheriff to justice.

 You’re a puzzle, tyler. You wouldn’t be the first
killer I met that worries about elderly ladies
and helpless animals. Still, it puzzles me.

PALADIN
Good evening, hey boy.

6
00:01:10,302 –> 00:01:12,103
Please, not lobby.

7
00:01:12,204 –> 00:01:13,805
Why not go in the lobby?

8
00:01:13,906 –> 00:01:17,075
Look cautiously
over my right shoulder.

9
00:01:19,011 –> 00:01:20,979
So early in the evening?

10
00:01:21,080 –> 00:01:23,281
I look for you all over.

11
00:01:23,382 –> 00:01:25,216
I took the brunette out
two nights ago,

12
00:01:25,317 –> 00:01:27,285
And the blonde
the night before that.

13
00:01:27,386 –> 00:01:30,188
But I made no other engagements
with either of them.

14
00:01:30,289 –> 00:01:32,356
There are other things
in life.

15
00:01:32,457 –> 00:01:34,159
Poker, for instance.

16
00:01:34,260 –> 00:01:37,162
Maybe ladies
don’t like play poker.

17
00:01:37,263 –> 00:01:39,363
Have they talked
to each other?

18
00:01:39,464 –> 00:01:41,833
I’m afraid so,
Mr. Paladin.

PALADIN
Well, then I’m afraid
The time is right
for me to disappear.
This telegram
might give reason.

22
00:01:49,809 –> 00:01:51,609
Oh?

PALADIN
Excuse me.
“Paladin, San Francisco.
“regarding offer to find
killer of local sheriff.
“you’re welcome to try
at your own risk.
“S.J. Lovitt, mayor
of Silver Flat, Nevada.”

PALADIN
Hey boy, I leave the lobby
in your capable hands.

28
00:02:12,597 –> 00:02:14,665
Good night.

29
00:02:54,039 –> 00:02:57,942
You satisfied now,
Nelson?

NELSON
What do you mean by that?

31
00:03:01,046 –> 00:03:02,747
The sheriff’s dead,
isn’t he?

NELSON
And you’re trying
to blame me?

33
00:03:04,950 –> 00:03:06,851
In a way. You got
Burt Tyler acquitted.

34
00:03:06,952 –> 00:03:08,786
Who went right out
and killed the sheriff?

35
00:03:08,888 –> 00:03:10,521
Tyler!

36
00:03:10,622 –> 00:03:12,991
You don’t know that
Tyler did the killing.

37
00:03:13,092 –> 00:03:15,260
I know it, you know it.
Everybody knows it.

38
00:03:15,361 –> 00:03:17,362
And you know my husband
had a job to do.

39
00:03:17,462 –> 00:03:19,264
Just a minute, Jean.

40
00:03:19,365 –> 00:03:21,266
What proof do you have?

41
00:03:21,367 –> 00:03:23,368
Tyler said he’d get even
for being arrested, didn’t he?

42
00:03:23,468 –> 00:03:25,503
Yes, someone started
a lot of talk about that.

43
00:03:25,604 –> 00:03:27,671
I don’t know of anyone
who actually heard him

44
00:03:27,773 –> 00:03:30,775
Threaten Sheriff Daly.
I thought they were friends.

45
00:03:30,876 –> 00:03:32,777
So they were friends,
were they?

46
00:03:32,878 –> 00:03:34,645
Maybe you can tell me
why the bullet we took

47
00:03:34,746 –> 00:03:36,747
Out of Daly’s back
was.36 caliber.

48
00:03:36,848 –> 00:03:38,917
You know anyone else
around here besides Tyler

49
00:03:39,018 –> 00:03:40,785
Using a gun that size?

50
00:03:40,886 –> 00:03:44,088
Don’t let him
bully you, tom.

51
00:03:44,189 –> 00:03:46,391
I’m not trying
to bully anyone.

52
00:03:46,491 –> 00:03:49,060
We had Tyler cold for
killing Charlie Bristol.

53
00:03:49,161 –> 00:03:51,930
You got him off,
and look what happened.

54
00:03:52,031 –> 00:03:54,299
The jury decided
it was self-defense.

55
00:03:54,400 –> 00:03:56,334
Sure they did, ’cause you
fancy talked them into it.

56
00:03:56,435 –> 00:03:59,603
You haven’t been
around this town long.

57
00:03:59,704 –> 00:04:01,406
Just long enough
to turn a killer loose.

58
00:04:01,506 –> 00:04:03,607
You and your
courtroom tricks.

59
00:04:03,708 –> 00:04:05,609
We’re trying to make something
decent of this country.

60
00:04:05,710 –> 00:04:07,912
Lawyers like you come in
and get in the way.

NELSON
In whose way?
Yours?

62
00:04:10,882 –> 00:04:13,418
Never mind, Jean.

63
00:04:13,518 –> 00:04:15,719
Come on.

64
00:04:18,857 –> 00:04:20,691
What do you want here?

65
00:04:20,792 –> 00:04:22,693
I’m sure I don’t want
to talk to you.

66
00:04:22,794 –> 00:04:24,695
I may have business
with the man who tells you

67
00:04:24,796 –> 00:04:26,797
What to fetch
and when to carry.

68
00:04:26,898 –> 00:04:29,300
You got a roundabout way
of asking for trouble.

69
00:04:29,401 –> 00:04:32,236
Don’t start anything
in this office, beau.

70
00:04:34,206 –> 00:04:37,842
Well now…
Who are you, sir?

PALADIN
My card’s on your desk.

72
00:04:49,688 –> 00:04:51,755
You got here fast.

PALADIN
It’s part of the service,
Mr. Lovitt.

74
00:04:54,159 –> 00:04:56,027
I’m mayor lovitt.

PALADIN
I must remember that.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that
the way it sounded.

77
00:05:01,433 –> 00:05:03,567
You’ve offered
to bring tyler back.

78
00:05:03,668 –> 00:05:05,569
I’ve got men who can do that,
if they could find him.

79
00:05:05,670 –> 00:05:07,505
I won’t pay ya,
unless you can find him.

80
00:05:07,606 –> 00:05:10,074
That’s the way I work.
Killing him won’t be enough,

81
00:05:10,175 –> 00:05:12,043
I’ll have to see
the body for proof.

82
00:05:12,144 –> 00:05:14,112
“dead or alive”
is the usual procedure.

83
00:05:14,213 –> 00:05:16,180
You’re welcome
to those alternatives,

84
00:05:16,281 –> 00:05:18,983
But you’ll never
bring tyler back alive.

85
00:05:19,084 –> 00:05:21,986
Do I get the impression
you’d regret it if I did?

86
00:05:22,087 –> 00:05:24,155
You’ll either kill tyler,
or he’ll kill you.

87
00:05:24,256 –> 00:05:26,857
You’ll see if you find him.
How much do you expect?

PALADIN
$2,000.

89
00:05:28,593 –> 00:05:32,130
That’s a lot of money
for a bounty hunter.

PALADIN
I don’t sell men.
I sell a job of work,
And that’s all
you pay for.

92
00:05:36,502 –> 00:05:38,336
All right,
you’ve got a deal.
I’ll pay you
when you deliver.
From here on,
you’re a deputy sheriff.

PALADIN
Just like that?
Shouldn’t I be sworn in
by the proper authorities?

97
00:05:46,278 –> 00:05:48,246
Consider yourself sworn in
by a proper authority.
Here’s a badge,
in case you need it.

PALADIN
Anything I acquire
that easily…
Can’t have much value.
How will I know this tyler?
He’s a fair sized man
with red hair.2
Carries a small gun,
a.36 caliber star.
Logger nelson
might know where he is.

105
00:06:07,466 –> 00:06:09,833
I’ll talk to his lawyer.
There’s something else.

106
00:06:09,935 –> 00:06:12,170
Whenever you run into him,
he’ll be gambling.
Tyler likes to play cards.
He’s not good, but he’s lucky.

PALADIN
I guess a man has to
be lucky at something.

109
00:06:17,909 –> 00:06:19,577
Oh, paladin…
If you find anything,
let me know.
I’ll send the boys
out to help.

PALADIN
No, why don’t you
keep them here

113
00:06:27,519 –> 00:06:29,653
In case anything
fierce happens…

114
00:06:29,754 –> 00:06:31,722
Like a dogfight.

NELSON
Yes, sir?

PALADIN

My name is Paladin.
I’ve just come from
Mayor Lovitt’s office.

NELSON
Oh… What do you want here?

PALADIN
I was hoping you could
help me find burt tyler.

NELSON
Lovitt’s already
asked me to do that.
I won’t help anyone
take that man’s life.

PALADIN
I just want to find him,
not kill him.

NELSON
I have nothing
to say to you.

PALADIN
I think you do.
You defended tyler

NELSON
On a charge of killing a man
named Bristol.

PALADIN
You got tyler off
and apparently,
He went right out
and killed the sheriff.

NELSON
Part of that is hearsay.

PALADIN
Then, let’s straighten it out.
I’ll bring him back for trial.

NELSON
Look, mr. Paladin.
Tyler is my client.
I can’t do anything for you.

PALADIN

Was your client.
You don’t owe him
anything now.
You have a sign outside
that says ‘attorney at law’.
Yet right now,
you’re obstructing justice.

NELSON
Justice?
Around here ‘justice’,
Mr. Paladin,
Is what any man with a gun
can make stick.
Now, I want you and lovitt
And everyone else around here
to leave me alone.
Good day to you,
mr. Paladin.

PALADIN
Nelson, you don’t live in this
world alone, none of us do.
We’re all dependent
on one another.
Tyler’s got to be
brought back.
If he’s innocent,
he should be cleared.
If he’s a murderer,
he’s got to be stopped.
You know where he is.
If you shield him now,
And he is a murderer…
Then every man he kills
from here on in
Will sit on your shoulders
and scream in your ears.
Now where is he?

150
00:08:31,476 –> 00:08:33,444
His only chance
is in court.
If he keeps running,
sooner or later,
Someone will kill him.

153
00:08:39,418 –> 00:08:41,185
Will you give me your word
You’ll try
and take him alive?

PALADIN
I can only promise to try.

NELSON
Well, if you were
going to lie to me,
I suppose you’d lie all
the way and guarantee it.

PALADIN
Where is he?

NELSON
He’s in prado.
Across the line
in utah territory.

PALADIN
Thank you.
Nelson…
Don’t let your conscience
keep you from sleeping.
I’ll bring him back
in one piece, if I can.
If he lets me.

166
00:10:02,868 –> 00:10:04,234
Annie!

167
00:10:04,336 –> 00:10:07,204
You’re stayin’ up
too late.

168
00:10:12,143 –> 00:10:14,278
You’re sold out.

169
00:10:16,648 –> 00:10:19,116
Go on home
and get some sleep.

170
00:10:30,395 –> 00:10:33,330
No use, boys.

171
00:10:33,431 –> 00:10:35,432
Nothing can stop me tonight.

172
00:10:35,534 –> 00:10:38,536
] you’re very badly mistaken there, tyler.

173
00:10:38,637 –> 00:10:42,039
You left something
unfinished in silver flats.

174
00:11:28,787 –> 00:11:30,721
I’m gettin’ no place
this way, mister uh…

175
00:11:30,822 –> 00:11:31,989
Paladin.

176
00:11:32,090 –> 00:11:34,324
You can try that gun,
if you insist.

177
00:11:34,426 –> 00:11:35,826
I advise against it.

178
00:11:35,928 –> 00:11:40,464
Lovitt must want me
real bad to pay your price.

179
00:11:40,566 –> 00:11:44,068
Make any difference if I
told you I didn’t kill daly?

180
00:11:44,169 –> 00:11:46,070
He was shot at clifton wells,

181
00:11:46,171 –> 00:11:48,205
And I wasn’t within
50 miles of the place.

182
00:11:48,306 –> 00:11:50,140
I can prove it.
You’ll have your chance.

183
00:11:50,241 –> 00:11:51,809
Now wait…

184
00:11:51,910 –> 00:11:53,978
Wait, now.

185
00:11:54,079 –> 00:11:56,047
Just hear me out.

186
00:11:57,816 –> 00:12:00,751
I was with a girl.

187
00:12:00,852 –> 00:12:04,288
She’s gone to carson city but
I can get her down here again.

188
00:12:04,389 –> 00:12:06,323
Why do I have to go back?

189
00:12:06,424 –> 00:12:08,459
Why can’t I square things
with you?

190
00:12:08,560 –> 00:12:10,461
You don’t have to prove
anything to me.

191
00:12:10,562 –> 00:12:12,463
There’ll be a judge
and 12 men,

192
00:12:12,564 –> 00:12:14,531
Eager to hear your story.

193
00:12:14,633 –> 00:12:17,735
Well, I might go with you
if I can have the same lawyer.

194
00:12:17,836 –> 00:12:19,503
You are going back with me.

195
00:12:19,605 –> 00:12:22,907
Either sitting in a saddle
or lying across it.

196
00:12:24,610 –> 00:12:27,011
All right.
I’ll go.

197
00:12:54,306 –> 00:12:56,240
I’d like to be sure
my horse is cared for

198
00:12:56,341 –> 00:12:58,109
While I’m in there.

199
00:12:58,210 –> 00:13:00,144
I’ll put him in the livery,
if you like.

200
00:13:00,245 –> 00:13:02,213
I’d be obliged.

201
00:13:22,201 –> 00:13:24,401
Just like comin’ home.

202
00:13:25,770 –> 00:13:28,272
No lawman been
appointed yet?

203
00:13:28,373 –> 00:13:30,208
Not legally.

204
00:13:30,309 –> 00:13:33,444
You got any idea why lovitt
wants me back here?

205
00:13:33,545 –> 00:13:35,713
There’s evidence to indicate
you murdered a sheriff.

206
00:13:35,814 –> 00:13:37,514
It’s not that.

207
00:13:37,615 –> 00:13:40,818
I got squeezed in a feud
between lovitt and the sheriff.

208
00:13:40,919 –> 00:13:42,820
They hated each other.

209
00:13:42,921 –> 00:13:45,957
Politically and
every other way.

210
00:13:46,058 –> 00:13:48,359
Lovitt wants to move on up.

211
00:13:48,460 –> 00:13:50,561
Wants to run this state.

212
00:13:50,662 –> 00:13:52,396
Daly had something on him.

213
00:13:52,497 –> 00:13:55,799
Something to do with fraud
in his election.

214
00:14:00,873 –> 00:14:03,040
You don’t care.
Do you, paladin?

215
00:14:03,141 –> 00:14:06,377
To you, I’m just
a card playin’ saddle tramp.

216
00:14:06,478 –> 00:14:08,379
Doesn’t make any difference
to me what you are.

217
00:14:08,480 –> 00:14:11,115
I’d just as soon believe you
as anyone else.

218
00:14:11,216 –> 00:14:13,817
Look, paladin…
I was lyin’ in this jail

219
00:14:13,919 –> 00:14:16,087
The night after I shot it
out with charlie bristol.

220
00:14:16,188 –> 00:14:20,224
Lovitt come in here and braced
the sheriff about this thing.

221
00:14:20,325 –> 00:14:22,693
Told him he’d never get a chance
to do anything about it.

222
00:14:22,794 –> 00:14:24,561
He said that
in front of you?

223
00:14:24,662 –> 00:14:27,431
I was lyin’ underneath
the blanket.

224
00:14:27,532 –> 00:14:30,134
He didn’t even notice me.
Least not till he finished.

225
00:14:34,539 –> 00:14:36,974
Listen, paladin.
You gotta believe me.

226
00:14:37,075 –> 00:14:40,311
At least give me
a chance to prove it.

227
00:14:46,018 –> 00:14:47,718
You’re a puzzle.

228
00:14:47,819 –> 00:14:50,687
You wouldn’t be
the first killer I met

229
00:14:50,789 –> 00:14:53,557
Who worried about elderly ladies
and helpless animals.

230
00:14:53,658 –> 00:14:55,426
But still you’re a puzzle.

231
00:14:55,527 –> 00:14:57,661
I ain’t no killer.

232
00:14:59,898 –> 00:15:02,300
I’ll see that nelson
defends you.

233
00:15:12,277 –> 00:15:14,312
So you did get him.

234
00:15:17,682 –> 00:15:19,616
What are you
doing that for?

235
00:15:19,717 –> 00:15:21,618
He’s locked in a cell,
isn’t he?

236
00:15:21,719 –> 00:15:23,821
I decided he’d be better off
without any visitors.

237
00:15:23,922 –> 00:15:25,689
Lovitt has plenty of keys.

238
00:15:25,790 –> 00:15:27,425
Don’t use ’em.

239
00:15:28,793 –> 00:15:31,028
I don’t take anything
from you, mister.

240
00:15:32,164 –> 00:15:34,631
The way to prove that is
by going into this jail.

241
00:15:34,732 –> 00:15:38,169
I’ll prove it,
when lovitt tells me to.

242
00:15:58,390 –> 00:16:00,291
Tyler came back with me.

243
00:16:00,392 –> 00:16:02,126
Here’s his gun.

244
00:16:02,227 –> 00:16:05,196
He wants you
to defend him again.

245
00:16:05,297 –> 00:16:07,798
You tell him to find
someone else.

246
00:16:07,899 –> 00:16:09,766
I’m not getting involved
in a criminal case again.

247
00:16:09,868 –> 00:16:12,470
I told him you’d take the
case. I want no part of it!

248
00:16:12,570 –> 00:16:15,339
I got him free once, now he’s
involved in another killing.

249
00:16:15,440 –> 00:16:16,940
Why should that concern you?

250
00:16:17,042 –> 00:16:19,443
The law guarantees every man,
innocent or guilty,

251
00:16:19,544 –> 00:16:22,746
The right to counsel. You’re an
attorney at law. Just do your job.

252
00:16:22,847 –> 00:16:25,549
I don’t like
that kind of work.

253
00:16:25,650 –> 00:16:27,551
From now on, I’m handling
nothing but civil law.

254
00:16:27,652 –> 00:16:29,586
Tyler says he didn’t
kill the sheriff.

255
00:16:29,687 –> 00:16:31,255
I’m not interested.

256
00:16:31,356 –> 00:16:35,059
Will you take the case
for $500?

257
00:16:35,160 –> 00:16:38,129
Certainly not.
This has nothing do with money.

258
00:16:38,230 –> 00:16:39,930
It’s a matter of principle.

259
00:16:40,032 –> 00:16:41,698
Oh.

260
00:16:43,168 –> 00:16:44,868
Well nelson, why did you
study law at all,

261
00:16:44,969 –> 00:16:46,937
If you don’t have
he stomach for it?

262
00:16:47,039 –> 00:16:50,408
You’d like it if only
nice people were arrested.

263
00:16:50,509 –> 00:16:54,245
If trials were dainty,
sweet-smelling and polite.

264
00:16:54,346 –> 00:16:58,416
But you’re asked to defend
thieves and cutthroats.

265
00:16:58,517 –> 00:17:00,951
Find yourself in court
in the middle of a war,

266
00:17:01,053 –> 00:17:02,753
No holds barred.

267
00:17:02,854 –> 00:17:05,989
At stake a man’s freedom
or his life.

268
00:17:06,091 –> 00:17:10,494
It’s too bad
it’s so dirty.

269
00:17:10,595 –> 00:17:13,531
You really should give up
the profession entirely.

270
00:17:13,631 –> 00:17:16,633
As a matter of principle.

271
00:17:20,772 –> 00:17:24,141
But not until
after this trial.

272
00:17:34,186 –> 00:17:36,820
This’ll be cash.
It’s the way I do business.

273
00:17:36,921 –> 00:17:38,822
You sell land
all over this state?

274
00:17:38,923 –> 00:17:40,524
Why?
This map.

275
00:17:40,625 –> 00:17:42,526
I use that map
for other things.

276
00:17:42,627 –> 00:17:44,628
Politics, for instance?

277
00:17:47,832 –> 00:17:50,767
Here’s your money.
Count it if you want to.

278
00:17:50,868 –> 00:17:53,904
I’ll be back
if it isn’t right.

279
00:17:58,943 –> 00:18:01,245
Tyler will get a trial,
won’t he?

280
00:18:01,346 –> 00:18:03,314
Of course.
First thing tomorrow morning.

281
00:18:03,415 –> 00:18:04,948
Circuit judge’ll
be there?

282
00:18:05,049 –> 00:18:07,384
I’m empowered to sit on
the bench in an emergency.

283
00:18:07,486 –> 00:18:09,453
In the absence of a sheriff,
and with the temper

284
00:18:09,554 –> 00:18:11,755
Of this town,
this is an emergency.

285
00:18:11,856 –> 00:18:14,858
Tyler says he was with a girl
when the sheriff was killed.

286
00:18:14,959 –> 00:18:16,727
That girl’s in carson city,

287
00:18:16,828 –> 00:18:18,596
And tyler will need time
to get her down here.

288
00:18:18,696 –> 00:18:21,865
He’ll say anything
to delay a hanging.

289
00:18:21,966 –> 00:18:24,001
Anyway, what do you care?

290
00:18:24,102 –> 00:18:26,470
You’re working for me,
not tyler.

291
00:18:26,571 –> 00:18:28,672
We just concluded
our agreement.

292
00:18:28,773 –> 00:18:30,941
All right.
Then, forget it.

293
00:18:33,145 –> 00:18:35,979
No, I think I’ll take
a room in the hotel,

294
00:18:36,080 –> 00:18:38,616
And wait until the trial.

295
00:18:38,716 –> 00:18:40,917
Gentlemen.

296
00:18:55,667 –> 00:18:57,634
Trial tomorrow.

297
00:18:57,735 –> 00:18:59,536
Lovitt will sit as judge.
Tomorrow?

298
00:18:59,637 –> 00:19:01,471
That’s a little soon,
isn’t it?

299
00:19:01,573 –> 00:19:05,075
Tyler says there’s a girl in
carson city that can clear him.

300
00:19:05,176 –> 00:19:07,077
But lovitt’ll never give him
time to get her down here.

301
00:19:07,178 –> 00:19:09,045
Lovitt’s a fair man.
He’ll change his…

302
00:19:09,146 –> 00:19:11,415
Suppose he doesn’t?
Well, then…

303
00:19:11,516 –> 00:19:13,149
That’s still not my concern.

304
00:19:13,251 –> 00:19:15,785
Lovitt and the sheriff
were enemies, weren’t they?

305
00:19:17,488 –> 00:19:20,557
Are you suggesting that…
That he had daly murdered?

306
00:19:20,658 –> 00:19:23,960
Did you ever take a good look
at that map in his office?

307
00:19:24,061 –> 00:19:26,029
It shows every town
in this state,

308
00:19:26,130 –> 00:19:28,064
And the number of registered
voters in each one.

309
00:19:28,165 –> 00:19:30,500
He wants it all,
you know.

310
00:19:31,502 –> 00:19:33,470
This is ridiculous!

311
00:19:40,010 –> 00:19:43,647
Paladin’s
stirring up trouble.

312
00:19:43,748 –> 00:19:46,950
Sometime tonight stop it.

313
00:19:53,991 –> 00:19:55,892
I don’t know how
you got in here…

314
00:19:55,993 –> 00:19:57,794
Nelson, you’ve
got to do something.

315
00:19:57,895 –> 00:20:00,930
I will buy you or beat you
or torment you,

316
00:20:01,031 –> 00:20:04,434
But you will act!
I can’t!

317
00:20:04,535 –> 00:20:06,303
Because I don’t know
what’s right anymore.

318
00:20:06,404 –> 00:20:08,438
The only consideration
you can have,

319
00:20:08,539 –> 00:20:10,307
Is to see that tyler
gets a fair trial.

320
00:20:10,408 –> 00:20:13,343
<i>How would you do that
if you were his lawyer?</i>

321
00:20:17,114 –> 00:20:19,015
Well, I’d get
a change of venue.

322
00:20:19,116 –> 00:20:21,485
He ought to be tried
in another court.

323
00:20:21,586 –> 00:20:24,120
You’d have to get a writ to get
him out of lovitt’s hands.

324
00:20:24,221 –> 00:20:26,156
<i>Habeus corpus.
In english that’s…</i>

325
00:20:26,257 –> 00:20:28,091
“deliver the body.”

326
00:20:28,192 –> 00:20:30,827
Where would you
get the writ?

327
00:20:30,928 –> 00:20:33,897
Well, judge lehman
is riding circuit.

328
00:20:33,998 –> 00:20:36,767
I’d have to find out
where he is just now…

329
00:20:38,068 –> 00:20:39,770
Look, paladin…

330
00:20:39,870 –> 00:20:42,272
The bullet they took
out of daly’s back.

331
00:20:42,373 –> 00:20:44,441
It came from tyler’s gun.

332
00:20:44,542 –> 00:20:46,710
You’d convict him on that?

333
00:20:46,811 –> 00:20:49,446
How difficult would it
have been for anyone else

334
00:20:49,547 –> 00:20:52,282
To get hold of
a.36 caliber star?

335
00:20:54,552 –> 00:20:56,320
I’ve gotta think about it.

336
00:20:56,421 –> 00:20:58,955
Don’t think too long.
Lovitt’s rid of the sheriff.

337
00:20:59,056 –> 00:21:01,157
He’d like to make
people forget it

338
00:21:01,258 –> 00:21:03,092
With a fast
conviction of tyler.

339
00:21:03,194 –> 00:21:05,161
Give him that and he’ll
hang tyler so fast,

340
00:21:05,262 –> 00:21:08,031
All you’ll be able to do
is cut him down.

341
00:21:42,166 –> 00:21:43,967
Hold it!

342
00:21:45,102 –> 00:21:46,936
Get up.

343
00:21:53,277 –> 00:21:58,047
I wouldn’t tell lovitt
about the cigar.

344
00:21:58,148 –> 00:22:01,885
Only a fool smokes a cigar
when he’s going to jump someone.

345
00:22:01,986 –> 00:22:03,587
Now get out of here.

346
00:22:22,106 –> 00:22:25,341
Hold it.
What’s this?

347
00:22:25,443 –> 00:22:28,278
Nobody allowed inside.
Mayor’s orders.

348
00:22:28,379 –> 00:22:30,346
I have a writ here
for tyler’s release.

349
00:22:30,448 –> 00:22:32,382
I don’t know nothing
about that.

350
00:22:32,483 –> 00:22:34,117
Can I?

351
00:22:39,791 –> 00:22:42,992
Get out of the way.
You’re no lawman.

352
00:22:46,564 –> 00:22:48,698
Neither are you.

353
00:22:58,476 –> 00:23:01,044
I was beginning to give up
on you, paladin.

354
00:23:01,145 –> 00:23:03,580
Had my hands full
securing a lawyer for you.

355
00:23:04,449 –> 00:23:06,015
Burt, I was wrong.

356
00:23:06,116 –> 00:23:09,018
I was trying to judge
a man myself.

357
00:23:09,119 –> 00:23:12,021
You’re helping a man
break jail, paladin.

358
00:23:12,122 –> 00:23:13,890
I brought an order
for his release.

359
00:23:13,991 –> 00:23:15,792
There’s to be a change
of venue in this case.

360
00:23:15,893 –> 00:23:18,227
I haven’t seen
any release order.

361
00:23:18,329 –> 00:23:20,330
Neither have my men.
We’ve got it.

362
00:23:20,431 –> 00:23:23,533
Since there’s no legally
elected lawman in this town,

363
00:23:23,634 –> 00:23:25,769
I’ll take responsibility
for releasing the prisoner.

364
00:23:25,870 –> 00:23:28,004
Where’s that order?

365
00:23:29,406 –> 00:23:30,607
Burn it.

366
00:23:30,708 –> 00:23:32,876
That’s not gonna
do you any good.

367
00:23:32,977 –> 00:23:35,278
Paladin and I are gonna tell
judge lehman we delivered it.

368
00:23:35,379 –> 00:23:38,615
The mayor doesn’t intend for us
to tell anybody anything.

369
00:23:38,716 –> 00:23:41,084
That’s the way it’ll be,
won’t it?

370
00:23:41,185 –> 00:23:43,186
You’ll destroy the writ
of habeus corpus,

371
00:23:43,287 –> 00:23:45,254
And nelson and I…
Will be shot.

372
00:23:45,356 –> 00:23:47,824
Helping a prisoner
to escape.

373
00:23:47,925 –> 00:23:49,926
So will the prisoner.

374
00:23:51,028 –> 00:23:53,029
Well…

375
00:23:53,130 –> 00:23:55,732
In that case…

376
00:23:57,602 –> 00:23:59,970
You destroy the writ.

377
00:24:00,070 –> 00:24:02,038
Yourself.

378
00:24:51,956 –> 00:24:54,624
Counselor…

379
00:24:54,725 –> 00:24:56,893
It’s all yours.

380
00:24:58,029 –> 00:25:00,063
Tyler…
Goodbye.

381
00:25:00,164 –> 00:25:02,131
Thanks.
