Mm. Thank you, Stewart.
Surely.
Waiter?
For Mr. Paladin,
please.
Yes, ma’am.
Mm-hmm.
“Aut Caesar
Aut Nihil.”
Either Caesar
or nothing.
Aut Paladin
aut nihil.
Won’t you sit down,
Mr. Paladin?

PALADIN
Thank you.
Now, Mrs. Neal,
your note says you want me
to bring your husband back
to you from a poker palace
in Cavinaw City?

MRS. NEAL
I’ll pay $5,000 now and $5,000
when you bring him back.

PALADIN
Well, spoiling
your husband’s poker weekend
sounds terribly dull.

MRS. NEAL
Poker weekend?
John Paul Neal began
his poker weekend
five-and-a-half months ago.
And I want him back.

PALADIN
Five-and-a-half months ago,
and you want him back now?
I admire your restraint.
How do you know
he’s still alive?

MRS. NEAL
You don’t mind?

PALADIN
Well, no, not if you don’t.

MRS. NEAL
Yesterday he withdrew $300,000
from the bank,
blew a million
in fine, prime timber
to raise another $400,000,
and then headed back
for Cavinaw.
$700,000.

PALADIN
Mrs. Neal…
…I’m beginning
to catch up.

MRS. NEAL
I married John Paul Neal
wealthy,
and I plan to see
he stays that way.

39
00:02:59,278 –> 00:03:01,379
Well, they’ll keep him nailed
to that poker table
in Cavinaw City
until they’re finished with him.

MRS. NEAL
There’s $50,000 at the disposal
of your draft
in the C.R. Overland.
Bargain with it,
Mr. Paladin.
Now do I interest you?

PALADIN
Mrs. Neal,
you interest me,
and John Paul Neal-
he’ll fascinate me.
Stewart?

STEWART
Yes, Mr. Paladin?

PALADIN
Uh, bring the brandy over here,
and another glass, please.

STEWART
Certainly, sir.
Whoa.
Yes, ma’am.
Sarah’s the name.
All right.
Sarah what?
Sarah’s all you need.
It’s all anyone needs.
Did you come looking
for Neal?

PALADIN
Well, now, I never talk
about Neals before dinner.
I do happen to have a bottle
of Brown & Sturges here…

63
00:04:26,365 –> 00:04:28,265
Well, I never drink
Brown & Sturges
before I talk about Neal.
I am looking for
a game with him.

66
00:04:34,907 –> 00:04:36,875
Well, you’ll find it
quick enough
if you’ve got the stakes.

PALADIN
Well, that’s why I came.

69
00:04:48,286 –> 00:04:53,525
Now, “Five card stud stays
to the end on king, ace…”

70
00:04:53,559 –> 00:04:57,362
“A low pair, tr… ”

71
00:05:02,001 –> 00:05:04,135
Neal plays
poker like this?

72
00:05:04,170 –> 00:05:05,636
Well, it’s sad, but it’s true.

73
00:05:05,671 –> 00:05:08,006
I’ve watched him play like that
for five months.

74
00:05:08,207 –> 00:05:10,875
Well, no, thanks.

75
00:05:10,910 –> 00:05:13,377
It’d spoil my fun.

76
00:05:13,412 –> 00:05:15,713
Now, what’s your game?

77
00:05:17,783 –> 00:05:20,351
I want Neal,
and I haven’t got a chance
against his wife
as long as he has his money.

80
00:05:24,790 –> 00:05:26,891
It’s silly, isn’t it?

81
00:05:26,926 –> 00:05:29,127
He’s 40, he looks 50.

82
00:05:29,161 –> 00:05:31,362
Over.

83
00:05:31,396 –> 00:05:34,032
But I love him.

84
00:05:34,066 –> 00:05:36,034
I need him.

85
00:05:36,068 –> 00:05:38,937
It’s the same thing, isn’t it?

86
00:05:41,540 –> 00:05:43,307
Well, take it!

87
00:05:43,342 –> 00:05:46,945
No, uh, I think if Neal
plays poker like this

88
00:05:46,979 –> 00:05:50,048
that I very probably
will never need it.

89
00:05:50,082 –> 00:05:52,817
Thank you very much.

90
00:05:52,852 –> 00:05:54,619
All right.

91
00:05:54,653 –> 00:05:56,287
Come on.

92
00:05:56,321 –> 00:05:58,723
John Paul’s right upstairs
in the hotel.

93
00:06:00,025 –> 00:06:01,926
Your good health.

94
00:06:10,002 –> 00:06:11,269
Thank you.

95
00:06:14,907 –> 00:06:19,778
You flash this, uh, fancy man
a peek at your knees,

96
00:06:19,812 –> 00:06:23,081
and you… you promised him
a star-spangled,

97
00:06:23,115 –> 00:06:24,749
three-week honeymoon in Frisco

98
00:06:24,784 –> 00:06:26,384
after you finish
trimming me, right?

99
00:06:26,418 –> 00:06:27,718
That’s a laugh.

100
00:06:27,753 –> 00:06:30,588
You trim yourself better than
any man I ever dealt cards to.

101
00:06:30,790 –> 00:06:32,223
Well, you blab my poker play
to every high-stake
gambler in town.

103
00:06:34,426 –> 00:06:37,294
Why don’t you put a notice
in the paper, too, huh?

104
00:06:37,329 –> 00:06:39,163
I advertised for a man,
not some punk curtseying
to Waller,
whining for better cards.

107
00:06:43,401 –> 00:06:45,803
You make me sick
to my stomach.

108
00:06:52,144 –> 00:06:55,679
Take your friend out
of here, Sarah.

109
00:06:55,714 –> 00:06:57,681
I’m sick of him

110
00:06:57,716 –> 00:06:59,817
and you…

111
00:06:59,852 –> 00:07:01,919
and the game.

112
00:07:01,954 –> 00:07:04,155
Well, why don’t you go home?

113
00:07:04,189 –> 00:07:06,724
Home to your wife?
My wife?!
He’s from my wife?!

116
00:07:10,863 –> 00:07:13,531
You said you wanted
to see him about a game.

117
00:07:13,565 –> 00:07:15,600
John Paul, she
misses you.

118
00:07:15,634 –> 00:07:19,737
She misses you
about $700,000 worth.

119
00:07:19,771 –> 00:07:22,406
The dirtiest thing
I can call you is a man.

120
00:07:22,440 –> 00:07:24,441
Another lying,
double-crossing man.

121
00:07:24,476 –> 00:07:25,676
Thank you.

122
00:07:25,711 –> 00:07:28,746
Mr. Neal, you have
a tiger by the tail.

123
00:07:28,780 –> 00:07:32,884
I am offering you a chance
to let go and back away.

124
00:07:38,156 –> 00:07:40,190
John.

125
00:07:40,225 –> 00:07:43,460
John, she paid him
to bring you back,
like an animal.

127
00:07:47,599 –> 00:07:50,200
John, you’re gonna listen
to him?

128
00:07:51,770 –> 00:07:54,038
John, she don’t love you.

129
00:07:54,072 –> 00:07:56,140
Don’t you see,
you’re no good to her?

130
00:07:56,174 –> 00:07:58,108
Don’t listen to him.

131
00:08:00,846 –> 00:08:02,914
Shoot me.

132
00:08:02,948 –> 00:08:04,649
Shoot me!

133
00:08:04,683 –> 00:08:06,717
That’s what she wants,
ain’t it?

134
00:08:06,752 –> 00:08:08,719
That’s what Waller wants.

135
00:08:10,455 –> 00:08:12,389
Oh, I’d like
to see her face

136
00:08:12,424 –> 00:08:14,258
when she hears
that you killed me.

137
00:08:15,493 –> 00:08:16,961
She’ll laugh herself
to death.

138
00:08:19,130 –> 00:08:21,265
Oh…

139
00:08:21,299 –> 00:08:23,367
I’m no good
to anybody.

140
00:08:23,401 –> 00:08:24,735
Let Waller have me.

141
00:08:24,770 –> 00:08:25,937
Let him kill me.

142
00:08:25,971 –> 00:08:28,338
Oh, he won’t kill you yet.

143
00:08:28,373 –> 00:08:31,075
You still have some
of your big money left.

144
00:08:31,109 –> 00:08:33,878
Why don’t you go beat your horse
and leave this man alone?

145
00:08:33,913 –> 00:08:35,613
This man?

146
00:08:35,647 –> 00:08:37,282
<i>This man?</i>

147
00:08:42,955 –> 00:08:45,823
You think this wreck
of self-pity,

148
00:08:45,858 –> 00:08:51,029
this whining,
leftover of two women

149
00:08:51,063 –> 00:08:53,497
is a man?

150
00:08:53,531 –> 00:08:55,767
I had nothing
to do with it.

151
00:08:55,801 –> 00:08:57,735
I’m throwing my money away,
all right.

152
00:08:57,770 –> 00:08:59,336
All right, I made it.

153
00:08:59,371 –> 00:09:02,439
Whatever I want to do with it
is none of Mrs. Neal’s business

154
00:09:02,474 –> 00:09:04,375
and none of yours.

155
00:09:04,409 –> 00:09:06,443
It’s none of your
blasted business!

156
00:09:09,248 –> 00:09:11,616
All right.

157
00:09:12,451 –> 00:09:14,152
Waller wouldn’t
let me leave.

158
00:09:14,186 –> 00:09:19,123
Even if I tried,
he’d never let me out alive.

159
00:09:20,826 –> 00:09:22,526
Well, that’s entirely up to you.

160
00:09:22,561 –> 00:09:24,195
He’ll save you
from Waller,

161
00:09:24,229 –> 00:09:26,331
but he’ll turn you over
to your wife.

162
00:09:26,365 –> 00:09:27,631
You’re better off here.

163
00:09:27,666 –> 00:09:29,733
You never know when
to help yourself out

164
00:09:29,768 –> 00:09:31,235
by shutting up, do you?

165
00:09:31,270 –> 00:09:32,803
I want to hear him talk.

166
00:09:32,972 –> 00:09:35,973
I’m gonna say this to you
just one time.

167
00:09:38,143 –> 00:09:41,745
Now, it’ll take you
and your gun,

168
00:09:41,780 –> 00:09:44,081
but I will help you.

169
00:09:45,784 –> 00:09:47,818
All right.

170
00:09:47,853 –> 00:09:49,720
All right,
whatever you say.

171
00:09:49,755 –> 00:09:53,557
All right, I’ll try
whatever you say.

172
00:09:53,591 –> 00:09:55,459
Whatever you say
I’m gonna try.

173
00:09:55,493 –> 00:09:57,662
No! No, you can’t go back!

174
00:09:57,696 –> 00:09:59,563
I’ve made up my mind. Don’t leave me.

175
00:10:00,866 –> 00:10:03,267
Mr. Waller wants to
see you, Mr. Neal.

176
00:10:03,301 –> 00:10:05,602
He’s in his room.

177
00:10:07,438 –> 00:10:09,707
Neal, you in there?

178
00:10:09,741 –> 00:10:10,975
Coming.

179
00:10:22,521 –> 00:10:26,357
On the way.

180
00:10:30,062 –> 00:10:34,332
Well, Mr. Paladin,

181
00:10:34,366 –> 00:10:36,434
would you like
to buy me that drink

182
00:10:36,468 –> 00:10:38,602
of Brown & Sturges now?

183
00:11:02,460 –> 00:11:03,961
Hello?

184
00:11:08,167 –> 00:11:12,070
That mice,
or is there somebody out there?

185
00:11:20,611 –> 00:11:22,947
Suppose I could get some
of those pork chops,
beans on the side?

187
00:11:24,682 –> 00:11:26,317
All out of those.

188
00:11:26,351 –> 00:11:27,751
About everything
else, too.

189
00:11:27,853 –> 00:11:30,488
Why don’t you hit the
casino for a free meal?

190
00:11:30,522 –> 00:11:31,956
What do you eat?

191
00:11:31,990 –> 00:11:34,225
There’s beans on the stove.

192
00:11:34,259 –> 00:11:35,392
They’re pretty good.

193
00:11:35,426 –> 00:11:36,560
Then there’s eggs.

194
00:11:36,594 –> 00:11:38,262
I can handle them, I guess.

195
00:11:38,296 –> 00:11:39,864
Some morning
coffee’s left over.

196
00:11:39,898 –> 00:11:41,098
It’ll bite like a dog.

197
00:12:15,501 –> 00:12:17,468
You’re pretty obvious,
you know that.

198
00:12:17,503 –> 00:12:19,370
Anything for you,
Mr. Waller?

199
00:12:19,404 –> 00:12:21,205
Nope.

200
00:12:21,240 –> 00:12:23,907
Mr. Neal went back to San
Francisco for more money,
and I take it
the word got around?

202
00:12:26,178 –> 00:12:31,449
And you show up here and
cash a draft for $50,000.

203
00:12:31,483 –> 00:12:36,720
Mrs. Neal will pay that $50,000
to get her husband off the hook.

204
00:12:36,754 –> 00:12:39,223
Oh.

205
00:12:39,257 –> 00:12:41,592
Well, you know, Mr.
Neal’s not on my payroll.

206
00:12:41,626 –> 00:12:43,594
He can leave town
whenever he wants.

207
00:12:43,628 –> 00:12:44,962
It’s a sickness with him.

208
00:12:44,996 –> 00:12:46,930
He can’t leave,
and you know that.

209
00:12:46,965 –> 00:12:51,035
Now, he must be more trouble
to you than he’s worth.

210
00:12:51,069 –> 00:12:52,502
Why Neal?

211
00:12:52,537 –> 00:12:54,105
What did he do to you?

212
00:12:54,139 –> 00:12:57,875
The big men stuffed the
opportunity in their pockets.

213
00:12:57,909 –> 00:13:00,644
Only thing they left
was the desert.

214
00:13:00,678 –> 00:13:02,847
Railroad’s got most of that.

215
00:13:02,881 –> 00:13:05,249
So, you take it right
out of their hides.

216
00:13:05,284 –> 00:13:07,218
And this time it’s Neal’s hide.

217
00:13:09,321 –> 00:13:11,522
When I’m done with Mr. Neal,

218
00:13:11,557 –> 00:13:13,724
I’ll let you know.

219
00:13:13,758 –> 00:13:16,526
Then you can come and fetch
him home to his wife.

220
00:13:18,596 –> 00:13:21,531
All right, Waller.

221
00:13:22,834 –> 00:13:25,236
It’s a game with you, hmm?

222
00:13:25,270 –> 00:13:28,239
A cruel game.

223
00:13:28,273 –> 00:13:31,208
Well, let’s make it a little bit
more exciting.

224
00:13:33,311 –> 00:13:35,512
Let’s play for him-

225
00:13:35,546 –> 00:13:37,715
you and me-

226
00:13:37,749 –> 00:13:40,117
for his soul…

227
00:13:40,151 –> 00:13:42,219
if that’d interest you more.

228
00:13:44,322 –> 00:13:47,257
Yes.

229
00:13:48,493 –> 00:13:50,494
Yes.

230
00:13:50,528 –> 00:13:52,529
Yes, that interests me.

231
00:13:52,563 –> 00:13:55,532
Playing for this
man’s soul.

232
00:13:55,566 –> 00:13:57,868
That’s right, like Faustus.

233
00:13:57,902 –> 00:14:00,137
Play poker for his soul.

234
00:14:00,171 –> 00:14:02,639
And if Neal wins
he can settle it
his own way.

236
00:14:04,675 –> 00:14:06,010
Look, it’s not likely Mr. Neal

237
00:14:06,044 –> 00:14:09,013
would change the habits
of a lifetime.

238
00:14:09,047 –> 00:14:12,016
And if I remember
my Faustus correctly,

239
00:14:12,050 –> 00:14:14,184
Mephistopheles wins out
in the last act.

240
00:14:14,219 –> 00:14:17,187
No, he was the junior partner.

241
00:14:17,222 –> 00:14:20,057
Lucifer was
the commander in chief.

242
00:14:22,160 –> 00:14:25,629
Yes.

243
00:14:25,663 –> 00:14:28,866
I won’t underestimate you,
Paladin, I promise you that.

244
00:14:28,900 –> 00:14:31,435
Thank you.

245
00:14:31,470 –> 00:14:34,438
Mr. Neal likes to get
started early, and, uh,

246
00:14:34,473 –> 00:14:37,575
you’ve certainly whetted
my appetite for cards.

247
00:14:44,616 –> 00:14:46,584
Mmm.

248
00:14:46,618 –> 00:14:47,851
Good eggs.

249
00:14:49,220 –> 00:14:51,155
They are?

250
00:14:57,496 –> 00:14:58,962
Call.

251
00:14:58,997 –> 00:15:00,197
Cards.

252
00:15:00,231 –> 00:15:02,232
Deuce, a pair.

253
00:15:02,267 –> 00:15:07,537
King, five, ten.

254
00:15:07,572 –> 00:15:09,039
Possible straight.

255
00:15:09,074 –> 00:15:12,042
And a six to
the dealer.

256
00:15:12,077 –> 00:15:14,144
Deuce’s bet.
250.

257
00:15:16,982 –> 00:15:18,748
I’ll call.

258
00:15:22,854 –> 00:15:24,789
I call.

259
00:15:27,392 –> 00:15:30,160
Play for 500.

260
00:15:33,264 –> 00:15:35,232
Pass.

261
00:15:35,266 –> 00:15:36,833
Call.

262
00:15:39,270 –> 00:15:41,738
I’ll, uh…

263
00:15:41,772 –> 00:15:44,008
uh…

264
00:15:44,042 –> 00:15:46,210
I’ll see it.

265
00:15:52,884 –> 00:15:55,052
What do you have, Mr. Paladin?

266
00:15:58,390 –> 00:16:01,392
Tens, a pair.

267
00:16:04,762 –> 00:16:07,198
Exciting evening, eh, Mr. Neal?

268
00:16:07,232 –> 00:16:08,432
No money in the game.

269
00:16:08,466 –> 00:16:12,403
Yes, Mr. Paladin’s
a man of many talents.

270
00:16:17,175 –> 00:16:19,376
Well, in a difficult game
like poker,

271
00:16:19,411 –> 00:16:21,545
a man should use all
of his talents.

272
00:16:21,579 –> 00:16:23,213
Give me another stack.

273
00:16:27,085 –> 00:16:29,819
Let’s play cards!

274
00:16:36,595 –> 00:16:39,530
1,200 back to you.

275
00:16:41,600 –> 00:16:44,034
Well…

276
00:16:44,068 –> 00:16:47,037
at that price…

277
00:16:47,071 –> 00:16:49,005
it’s worth a look.

278
00:16:51,109 –> 00:16:52,642
Speak up, gentlemen.

279
00:16:52,677 –> 00:16:55,579
Not with these cards.

280
00:16:55,613 –> 00:16:57,614
I gotta fold.

281
00:16:57,648 –> 00:17:00,850
Please, Mr. Neal,
don’t drool on the table.

282
00:17:00,885 –> 00:17:04,121
Get in or get out.

283
00:17:04,155 –> 00:17:07,324
Well, I, uh, got you beat
on the board.

284
00:17:09,627 –> 00:17:11,295
I’ll call.

285
00:17:17,469 –> 00:17:19,737
Three kings.

286
00:17:22,874 –> 00:17:25,842
My two pair…

287
00:17:25,877 –> 00:17:28,445
will not beat those three kings.

288
00:17:37,655 –> 00:17:40,858
We’d, uh, better
get a fresh deck.

289
00:17:40,892 –> 00:17:42,827
No new deck.

290
00:17:43,929 –> 00:17:46,730
Get me some wine-
a Rhenish.

291
00:17:46,764 –> 00:17:49,333
A new deck won’t improve
your stupid playing, Mr. Neal.

292
00:17:51,402 –> 00:17:53,370
You’re a parrot.

293
00:17:53,404 –> 00:17:57,274
A stupid, ridiculous parrot
chattering “New deck.”

294
00:17:57,308 –> 00:17:59,242
Do you understand me, Mr. Neal?

295
00:18:02,380 –> 00:18:04,748
Here’s your wine, Mr. Waller.

296
00:18:05,850 –> 00:18:08,084
Chilled as
you like it.

297
00:18:20,532 –> 00:18:22,466
Your deal.

298
00:18:31,342 –> 00:18:33,310
I, uh…

299
00:18:33,344 –> 00:18:35,445
I knew we needed a fresh deck.

300
00:18:41,152 –> 00:18:43,119
Pot’s right.

301
00:18:43,154 –> 00:18:45,455
Just the three
of us.

302
00:18:45,490 –> 00:18:48,425
John Paul, a king.

303
00:18:50,228 –> 00:18:53,564
Pair of kings.

304
00:18:53,598 –> 00:18:55,599
Mr. Waller.

305
00:18:55,634 –> 00:18:57,601
Queen.

306
00:18:57,636 –> 00:19:00,437
Possible straight
needs a jack, and

307
00:19:00,471 –> 00:19:02,439
your jack to the dealer.

308
00:19:02,473 –> 00:19:04,241
Your bet, Mr. Neal.

309
00:19:07,779 –> 00:19:09,713
15,000.

310
00:19:15,153 –> 00:19:17,955
Now, it’s only money,
Mr. Waller.

311
00:19:17,989 –> 00:19:19,957
That’s what you always
keep telling me.

312
00:19:19,991 –> 00:19:22,292
Thinking with your mouth
as usual, Mr. Neal.

313
00:19:22,326 –> 00:19:24,562
Think of your loving wife,
you won’t be so happy.

314
00:19:24,596 –> 00:19:27,431
The bet is 15,000 to you.

315
00:19:27,465 –> 00:19:29,733
You have a straight
or don’t you?

316
00:19:29,767 –> 00:19:31,602
Don’t call
or bring up my wife.

317
00:19:31,636 –> 00:19:33,737
That’s right, Miss Sarah’s
here, I completely forgot.

318
00:19:33,772 –> 00:19:35,906
You lead a complex
life, Mr. Neal.

319
00:19:35,940 –> 00:19:37,774
Well, you are bitter,
Mr. Waller.

320
00:19:37,808 –> 00:19:39,943
You are very bitter indeed.

321
00:19:39,977 –> 00:19:42,779
Sweeten up and play cards.

322
00:19:42,813 –> 00:19:45,449
Mr. Neal’s soul may yet
belong to him.

323
00:19:48,486 –> 00:19:51,855
The bet is 15,000 to you.

324
00:19:53,958 –> 00:19:56,660
Yes.

325
00:20:01,132 –> 00:20:04,068
I… raise.

326
00:20:07,905 –> 00:20:10,074
Is it a good bet?

327
00:20:10,108 –> 00:20:12,109
Or is it a bluff?

328
00:20:12,143 –> 00:20:14,344
Bluff or bet, Waller,

329
00:20:14,378 –> 00:20:16,379
many a man has died of rat bite.

330
00:20:16,414 –> 00:20:18,749
And they tell me
the most serious,

331
00:20:18,783 –> 00:20:20,951
the most deadly
kind of a rat bite

332
00:20:20,985 –> 00:20:22,553
is that of a
cornered rat.

333
00:20:22,587 –> 00:20:24,154
Sit down, gentlemen. Sit down.

334
00:20:27,592 –> 00:20:28,858
Sit down,
sit down.

335
00:20:28,893 –> 00:20:30,994
Mr. Neal’s like an old friend of ours.

336
00:20:31,028 –> 00:20:33,129
We’d like to see him win this pot.

337
00:20:39,137 –> 00:20:40,003
Oh, no.

338
00:20:41,238 –> 00:20:43,874
No, you don’t fool me,
Mr. Waller.

339
00:20:43,908 –> 00:20:46,076
Not this time.

340
00:20:46,110 –> 00:20:47,411
Take the pot.

341
00:20:47,445 –> 00:20:48,812
Now, wait
a minute!

342
00:20:48,846 –> 00:20:50,881
I’m still in this.

343
00:20:56,254 –> 00:21:00,157
Mr. Hat, how much money is
in that pot?

344
00:21:00,191 –> 00:21:02,860
A hundred and two thousand,
three hundred and fifty.

345
00:21:04,963 –> 00:21:06,497
And Neal.

346
00:21:06,531 –> 00:21:08,365
What’s he
worth to you?

347
00:21:08,399 –> 00:21:10,668
I didn’t think you meant it.

348
00:21:10,702 –> 00:21:12,369
Yes, you did.

349
00:21:14,472 –> 00:21:17,173
Well, no one could
really win your soul,

350
00:21:17,208 –> 00:21:19,309
could they, Mr. Neal?
Not really.

351
00:21:24,549 –> 00:21:26,416
What do
you mean?

352
00:21:26,451 –> 00:21:27,784
My soul’s
my own.

353
00:21:27,819 –> 00:21:28,952
Nobody
owns me.

354
00:21:28,986 –> 00:21:30,119
See,
Paladin?

355
00:21:30,154 –> 00:21:33,724
The rat thinks
his trap is a palace.

356
00:21:34,826 –> 00:21:37,127
Paladin?

357
00:21:37,161 –> 00:21:38,862
Too bad, John Paul.

358
00:21:38,896 –> 00:21:41,198
You just lost your last chance.

359
00:21:41,232 –> 00:21:43,867
If you’d stayed
and won,

360
00:21:43,902 –> 00:21:45,903
you could’ve
gone with me

361
00:21:45,937 –> 00:21:48,038
or stayed with Waller
as you chose.

362
00:21:48,072 –> 00:21:49,939
As things now stand,

363
00:21:49,974 –> 00:21:52,809
Waller wins you
if he wins this pot.

364
00:21:58,282 –> 00:22:00,384
Well, you can’t do that.

365
00:22:00,418 –> 00:22:02,019
That’s slavery.

366
00:22:02,053 –> 00:22:03,253
I call.

367
00:22:14,799 –> 00:22:16,533
Ace, king.

368
00:22:21,972 –> 00:22:24,674
Jacks, a pair.

369
00:22:24,709 –> 00:22:27,310
He’s yours.

370
00:22:27,344 –> 00:22:29,246
Wait a minute.

371
00:22:29,280 –> 00:22:31,114
Wait a minute, look.

372
00:22:32,349 –> 00:22:34,350
I got a pair of kings.

373
00:22:34,385 –> 00:22:36,853
You’re going home,
John Paul Neal.

374
00:22:36,888 –> 00:22:39,289
You’re going home to your wife.

375
00:22:43,628 –> 00:22:45,429
That’s a shame, Mr. Neal.

376
00:22:45,463 –> 00:22:48,197
You were just beginning
to get lucky.

377
00:22:51,135 –> 00:22:53,070
¶ ¶

378
00:23:06,684 –> 00:23:08,652
Get out there.

379
00:23:08,686 –> 00:23:10,386
All right, come on,
put it out here.

380
00:23:19,964 –> 00:23:21,898
Aah!

381
00:23:23,968 –> 00:23:25,936
Oh, no, no.

382
00:23:25,970 –> 00:23:28,905
Now there’s no need
for violence.

383
00:23:34,244 –> 00:23:38,248
Well, Mr. Paladin,
I believe you’ve won.

384
00:23:38,282 –> 00:23:39,650
Congratulations.

385
00:23:39,684 –> 00:23:42,519
John Paul, thank you.

386
00:23:42,553 –> 00:23:44,822
Remember, the game’s
always open.

387
00:23:44,856 –> 00:23:47,190
No.

388
00:23:47,224 –> 00:23:49,993
No more.

389
00:23:50,027 –> 00:23:53,096
I’m never coming back.

390
00:23:53,131 –> 00:23:55,199
We’ll be expecting you.

391
00:23:56,301 –> 00:23:59,269
Oh, yes, John Paul.

392
00:23:59,304 –> 00:24:00,838
We’ll be waiting.

393
00:24:00,872 –> 00:24:03,173
I’ve lost this battle,
Mr. Paladin.

394
00:24:03,207 –> 00:24:05,842
I don’t expect to lose the war.

395
00:24:05,876 –> 00:24:08,011
Enjoy your trip
to San Francisco.

396
00:24:08,045 –> 00:24:09,847
Thank you.

397
00:24:17,254 –> 00:24:19,189
Mr. Hat.

398
00:24:30,201 –> 00:24:33,136
Good morning.
