SULLY mends a fence.

BRIAN (V.O.)
(quickly)
O-c-u... no. O-c-c-u-r-r-e-d.

MIKE (V.O.)
Right. Two c's, two r's.


INT. HOMESTEAD - DAY ONE 2

MIKE is quizzing BRIAN for a spelling bee. He stands across from her as she reads words from a sheet. KATIE's in her cradle, sleeping. A fire blazes.

BRIAN
(trying to fix it in memory)
Two c's, two r's.

MIKE
Phenomenon.

BRIAN
(quickly)
P-h-e-n-o-m-e-n-o-n.

MIKE
Good!

BRIAN
Give me a harder word.

Katie starts to fuss. Mike stands and walks toward her.

MIKE
Annihilate.

BRIAN
That's not hard. A-n-n-i-h-i-l-a-t-e.

Mike picks up Katie, rocks her, tries to soothe her.

MIKE
There, sweetheart. You're up now. You slept a nice long time.

BRIAN
Ma? Was that right?

MIKE
I'm sorry, Brian, I didn't hear.
(to Katie)
You're wet. Is that why you're crying?

BRIAN
A-n-n-i-h-i-l-a-t-e.

MIKE
(to Katie)
I'm going to give you a bath now. Would you like that?

Brian reacts, disappointed by Mike's lack of response, as she starts toward the stairs.

MIKE
(to Brian)
We'll continue tomorrow, Brian.

BRIAN
But the spellin' bee's tomorrow. You're gonna be there, aren't ya?

MIKE
Of course. I wouldn't miss it. Why don't you finish your chores, and we'll do some more drills later, after I put Katie to bed.
(to Katie)
Oh, look at those big bright eyes. Watching everything.

She goes up the stairs and disappears. Brian stares after her a moment, then grabs his jacket and goes out the door.

Brian walks out, heading toward the barn. He passes Sully.

SULLY
Hey Brian.

Brian manages a lackluster:

BRIAN
Hey Sully.

And he continues into the barn. Sully wonders what's up, but before he can follow Brian, MATTHEW rides up to Sully (he's got saddlebags that indicate he's going away for a few days).

SULLY
Matthew. What's goin' on?

MATTHEW
I was hopin' you could help me out -- I had to arrest one of the Watson boys.

SULLY
Why's that?

MATTHEW
Stole a cow.

SULLY
(surprised)
A cow?
(Matthew nods)
One cow?

MATTHEW
That's right.

SULLY
Did he slaughter it?

MATTHEW
Yep.

SULLY
(takes a beat, then:)
Town tried to hang Ingrid's brother when he stole a cow, when his family was starvin'. Way I remember it, you were his friend, and ya helped him.

MATTHEW
I ain't gonna hang this fella. But I gotta keep him in jail a few days.

(CONTINUED)

SULLY
Matthew, you know his family needs him right now. They're havin' a hard time...

MATTHEW
What am I supposed to do? I can't have folks breakin' the law and gettin' away with it.

SULLY
Matthew --

But Matthew cuts him off:

MATTHEW
I just came by to see if you'd look in on Watson while I'm away.

SULLY
Where you goin'?

MATTHEW
Cascade Valley.

SULLY
Why's that?

MATTHEW
The Danforth Company's havin' trouble. They wired me for help.

SULLY
Danforth Company?

MATTHEW
They're buildin' somethin' out that way, and supplies are gettin' hijacked.

SULLY
(nods gravely)
When will you be back?

MATTHEW
Soon as I get things under control. Probably by the end of the week.

SULLY
Maybe I should go with you.

MATTHEW
Nah, I can handle it.

(CONTINUED)

SULLY
Well, be careful.

MATTHEW
Sully. I can take care of this.

Matthew rides out. Sully watches him.

ACT ONE


FADE IN:


EXT. STREET OUTSIDE SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND LIVERY - DAY TWO 5

Sully comes out of the Sheriff's office, and spots PRESTON with two unsavory-looking men, BILLY and RAY, tieing packs on their horses. Preston hands each of them some bills.

PRESTON
Here you are, gentlemen.

RAY
Where's the rest of the money?

PRESTON
You'll get the balance when the job's completed.

BILLY
How long'll it take to get to this place? What's it called?

PRESTON
Cascade Valley.

Sully takes notice.

PRESTON
Half a day, if we move fairly quickly.

SULLY
(approaches)
What's goin' on in Cascade Valley?

PRESTON
Business.

SULLY
What business?

PRESTON
Haven't you heard? The Danforth Company's going to build a dam above the Cascade River.

SULLY
(remembers)
Danforth.

PRESTON
They're going to flood the Cascade Valley.

(CONTINUED)


6A.

SULLY
They can't do that.

PRESTON
Apparently they can.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED: (2) 5

SULLY
That valley's the winter feeding ground for the elk in this area.

PRESTON
It won't be in the future. They'll have to find somewhere else to dine.

SULLY
It's also...
(he's staggered at the thought)
...one of the most beautiful valleys in the territory.

PRESTON
It will all be under water. Unless...
(looks at Billy and Ray)
...we can persuade them that this dam is a poor idea.

They start getting on their horses. Sully looks at Billy and Ray, wondering about their method of persuasion. Both carry guns. He turns to Preston.

SULLY
Why do you care about the dam?

PRESTON
It will dry up the river that runs by my spa.
(Sully nods, getting it)
And that's one of our main attractions. People like to fish, and stroll along it. But if the dam is built, I won't have a riverside resort, I'll have a hotel by a dry river bed.
(picks up reins)
I can't let that happen.

He and the men ride off.


EXT. HOMESTEAD - DAY TWO 5A

Mike and Sully come out onto the porch. Mike holds Katie. Sully's horse is ready to roll.

(CONTINUED)


8.


CONTINUED: 5A

SULLY
I asked Robert E to look in on Watson in jail... I just gotta go make sure Matthew knows what he's gettin' into --

MIKE
I can't believe Matthew would intentionally want to help someone who is going to flood the Valley.

SULLY
He's a lawman, it's his job.

MIKE
He must not be aware of what Danforth is up to --

SULLY
Or Preston. I didn't like the looks of his "friends."

He kisses Mike and Katie goodbye.

MIKE
Be careful.

SULLY
Shouldn't be gone too long.

And he gets on his horse. Mike is concerned, but distracted by Katie, who starts to fuss.

MIKE
What's the matter, baby girl?


EXT. SCHOOL HOUSE - DAY TWO - TO ESTABLISH 6


INT. SCHOOL HOUSE - DAY TWO 7

The spelling bee is in progress. Six parents are there, standing in back, cheering on their children. But Mike's not there. Brian and the other students sit at their desks, as TERESA quizzes SARA, who's standing at a podium.

TERESA
Opossum.

SARA
O-p-o-s-s-u-m.

TERESA
Correct.

TERESA

SARA
V-o-c-i-f...

She pauses, everybody's with her -- so far, so good.

SARA
e-r-o-s.

There's quiet in the room.

TERESA
I am sorry. It's "e-r-o-u-s." But you did very well. Six correct.

She tallies on a board. Sara, with a smile, takes her seat.

TERESA
Next is Brian Cooper.

Brian stands and scans the crowd, looking for his mother. A couple of other parents walk in and take seats. Brian walks to the podium.

TERESA
Your first word is "sheriff."

BRIAN
S-h-e-r-i-f-f.

TERESA
Correct.

People applaud. Brian looks about the crowd.

TERESA
"Forfeit."

Brian scans the crowd again. Why isn't Mike there?

BRIAN
F-o-r-f-e-i-t.

TERESA
Correct.

Applause.

TERESA
"Opportunity."

Door opens. Brian swivels his head to see who's coming in.

+HIS POV 8

Another mother walks through the door on tiptoes, trying not to disturb people.


+ON BRIAN 9

as he reacts, disappointed that it's not Mike. He turns his attention back to Teresa.

BRIAN
O-p-o-r-t-u-n-i-t-y.

Teresa looks at him in surprise. The room falls silent. Everyone's shocked at Brian's missing an easy word.

TERESA
That is incorrect. There are two "p's" in opportunity.
(beat)
Thank you, Brian. Next is Tess Randall.

Brian is beside himself, humiliated. How could he have missed that word? TESS stands and walks to the podium. Brian goes back to his seat and sinks down.


EXT. COUNTRY ROAD - DAY TWO 10

Matthew, on horseback, finishes scouting a hillside, and trots back to a wagon which is loaded with lumber. Two drivers, PAT and GEORGE, sit on the front seat.

PAT
(gestures toward hill)
Right up there's where they stopped us before. Came right outta nowhere.

MATTHEW
Looks alright now. Let's just ease on ahead. Nice and steady.

Pat flicks the reins and the horses start moving. Matthew rides in front of them, scanning the hills.



11.


EXT. DANFORTH CAMP - DAY TWO 11

Sully rides up to the camp, where MEN are carrying loads of lumber and hardware, stacking them in piles. Several tents are set up, in front of which is a table with four chairs. DANFORTH, an unscrupulous builder, stands at the table showing blueprints to Preston. Billy and Ray stand to the side.


+ON SULLY 12

He looks around at the camp as he dismounts and ties up his horse. Hearing voices, he walks close enough to the tent to see and hear what's being said. (Note that Preston and Danforth do not see Sully.)


+BACK TO SCENE 13

Danforth points to the plans.

DANFORTH
We're going to put the mill here. That way we can cut the trees right here, mill them and ship them on railroad cars straight to Denver. You know how much time and money that's going to save us?

PRESTON
I can appreciate that.

DANFORTH
There's a boom going on in Denver. They need lumber and they need it fast.

PRESTON
All I'm suggesting is that you build the dam at another site, say... Fountain Creek.

DANFORTH
And why would I do that?


+ON SULLY 14

watching this, growing upset.



12.


+BACK TO SCENE 15

PRESTON
Because if you build it here, it will destroy this valley and dry up the river that runs past Colorado Springs.

DANFORTH
You have other sources of water.

PRESTON
If you build at Fountain Creek, Mr. Danforth, I'm prepared to arrange excellent financing, for all your loans...

DANFORTH
Not interested.

PRESTON
(more insistent)
Two points less than you're paying now.

DANFORTH
Don't you understand? I own this land. I'm here. In two more days, the dynamite will be here and we start blasting.

PRESTON
(threatening)
I'm urging you in the strongest terms to reconsider.

DANFORTH
Answer is no.

PRESTON
(after a beat)
We'll see about that.

He motions to Billy and Ray, who follow him away from the table toward the place where their horses are tied.


+ON SULLY 16

He looks at Preston retreating, then at Danforth.


INT. HOMESTEAD - DAY TWO 17

Mike is walking back and forth holding Katie, who's sick. After a few beats, door opens and Brian walks in.

(CONTINUED)


13.


CONTINUED: 17

MIKE
Brian, I'm so sorry...

BRIAN
Where were ya, Ma?

MIKE
Katie became ill. She was running a fever.

BRIAN
What's wrong with her?

MIKE
It's just a catarrh. But I couldn't bring her and I didn't want to leave her with anyone else. I'm so disappointed I wasn't able to be there...

BRIAN
(brushing it off)
It's all right. I gotta do my chores.

MIKE
Wait. Sit down a minute. Tell me about the spelling bee.

BRIAN
Tess won.

MIKE
(surprised)
Oh? And how did you do?

BRIAN
Not so good.

MIKE
But you were so well prepared.

BRIAN
I missed the word "opportunity".

MIKE
You know how to spell that.

(CONTINUED)


14.


CONTINUED: (2) 17

BRIAN
I got mixed up.

MIKE
Well... That happens to everyone. I'm sure you'll do better next time.

He nods, still disappointed. Katie stirs, makes a noise. Mike turns her attention to her.

BRIAN
I got chores to do.

He leaves, still unhappy. Mike watches him go in silence.


EXT. DANFORTH CAMP - DAY TWO 18

Matthew rides into camp ahead of Pat & George in the supply wagon. He dismounts and walks over to Danforth, by his tent.

DANFORTH
Sheriff Cooper. Any trouble?

MATTHEW
None at all. Came up the same route and didn't see a soul.

DANFORTH
Good.

MATTHEW
Figure if I make one more run with 'em, whoever's out there'll get the message.

DANFORTH
I need you here. There's been a lot of strangers coming around, and I don't like the looks of 'em.
(gestures)
One of 'em's askin' for you.

Matthew turns to see who it is.



15.


+HIS POV - SULLY, STANDING BY THE HORSES. 19


+BACK TO SCENE 20

Surprised to see Sully, Matthew walks over to him.

MATTHEW
What're you doin' here?

SULLY
Preston's here -- I saw him leavin' town with two hired men...

MATTHEW
Hired? What for?

SULLY
He doesn't want that dam here. Looks like they're set on causin' trouble.

MATTHEW
(after a beat)
Well, that's why I'm here.

SULLY
This guy Danforth -- you know what he's up to?

MATTHEW
Buildin' a dam.

SULLY
He's gonna blast out the mountain and destroy the land.

MATTHEW
He owns the land, Sully, he's got a right to build whatever he wants on it.

SULLY
What about the people who live below the dam, who won't be able to get water from the river? What about their rights?

MATTHEW
Look, Sully, I know you feel strongly 'bout this --

SULLY
Don't you?

(CONTINUED)


16.


CONTINUED: 20

MATTHEW
Sure, but I feel strongly 'bout doin' my job too.

He starts to walk away.

SULLY
I'm just tryin' to help ya see what you're gettin' into --

MATTHEW
I don't need your help.

SULLY
Matthew --

MATTHEW
Fact is, I don't need ya here. Why don't you just go home?

Matthew stares at Sully. He means it.

FADE OUT.

ACT TWO


FADE IN:


EXT. WOODS - DAY THREE 21

Sully rides his horse through the woods. He sees three horses roped to some trees, and hears men's voices. He stops, dismounts, and walks toward the sound.

PRESTON (O.S.)
We need to strike quickly -- make a clear demonstration of force.

Sully peers through the trees:


+HIS POV 22

Preston, Billy and Ray sit around a fire, plotting their next action.

BILLY
The wagon with the dynamite...

RAY
We fix it so it never arrives. When it reaches the pass, we ride out, just like before. I tell 'em to halt and get off the wagon...
(to Billy)
...then you get on it and drive away and I finish 'em both off.

Preston reacts, shocked, -- this is not what he intended:

PRESTON
You're not suggesting that we kill anyone?

BILLY
It's cleaner. No witnesses.

PRESTON
All you have to do is get rid of the dynamite so that Danforth can't start blasting.

RAY
He'll just order another shipment from Denver. But if we kill the drivers, no one'll want to bring a wagon in here.

(CONTINUED)


18.


CONTINUED: 22

PRESTON
No. I'm paying you to stop this dam from being built -- nothing else.


+WIDER ANGLE 23

Sully comes forward.

SULLY
What's goin' on here?

BILLY
(draws gun)
What do you want?

PRESTON
(cautious)
Don't worry, gentlemen. Sully is as much opposed to this dam as we are -- isn't that right, Sully?

SULLY
This is wrong -- you shouldn't be doin' this.

Preston pulls Sully aside.

PRESTON
Sully. Awkward as it may be, we are on the same side here. And I need your help. Ride along with us. You can help keep those two in line.

SULLY
Forget it.

PRESTON
This is a temporary measure. I'm going to petition the circuit court for a restraining order, and I've wired people in Washington, but that takes time. If we remove the dynamite, we'll gain that time. And if you come along, we'll make certain no one gets hurt.

Sully just looks at him.

(CONTINUED)


19.


CONTINUED: 23

PRESTON
Sully, listen to me -- do you want that dam built?

Sully doesn't say anything. But Preston knows he doesn't:

PRESTON
This is the only way.

SULLY
No it ain't.

And he walks off, back towards his horse.


INT. HOMESTEAD - DAY THREE 24

Mike's bustling about, trying to pack up Katie and get ready to leave for the clinic. Brian's at the table, a bowl of oatmeal in front of him, but he looks listless, depressed.

MIKE
Did you get all your school work done?

Brian doesn't answer.

MIKE
Brian?

Brian looks up at her. Mike gives him a concerned look.

MIKE
Is something wrong?

Brian puts his spoon down and pushes away his bowl.

BRIAN
I'm just not hungry.

Mike stops, turns and takes a good look at him.

MIKE
You don't seem your usual self.

Brian shrugs, as she walks over and puts her hand on his forehead.

(CONTINUED)


20.


CONTINUED: 24

MIKE
You're a bit warm. Perhaps you're catching what Katie had. Do you feel achy all over?

BRIAN
(shrugs)
I don't know.

MIKE
Perhaps you should stay home from school today.
(thinks a moment)
I'll take you to the clinic with me.

Brian looks up at her a moment, considering this, then nods quietly. Mike has Katie in one arm, and with the other, she helps Brian up and guides him out the door.


EXT. DANFORTH CAMP - DAY THREE 25

Sully's talking with Danforth at the table in front of his tent.

SULLY
There's a wild orchid that grows in that valley that doesn't grow anywhere else. There're eagles in the trees, trout in the streams. They'll all be gone if you do this.

DANFORTH
I'm aware of that.

Danforth looks stiff and uninterested, but Sully continues.

SULLY
I know it doesn't mean much to you, but it's gonna mean somethin' to your children, and their children. They might want to come here to hunt and fish and enjoy the beauty God created.

DANFORTH
What about the beauty man creates? Have you ever seen a dam in operation? It's a marvel of engineering.

(CONTINUED)


21.


CONTINUED: 25

SULLY
Once you destroy this valley, there's no goin' back.

DANFORTH
It's obvious we're in disagreement.

He starts to walk away.

SULLY
There're folks who want to stop you and they don't care what it takes. People could get hurt.

DANFORTH
(looks off toward other tent)
Sheriff!

Matthew comes out of the tent.

DANFORTH
I believe this man is threatening me.

Matthew looks at Sully and reacts with frustration. What's Sully doing? Matthew turns to Danforth.

MATTHEW
I'll talk to him.

Matthew takes Sully's arm and leads him away from Danforth's tent. Sully shakes free of Matthew's hand on him.

MATTHEW
I asked you to leave.

SULLY
Matthew, we gotta talk --

MATTHEW
You gotta stop checkin' up on me.

SULLY
This ain't got anythin' to do with checkin' up on you -- we got other problems.

MATTHEW
Like what?

SULLY
Come with me and I'll show ya.

(CONTINUED)


22.


CONTINUED: (2) 25

MATTHEW
Sully...

SULLY
Just come with me.


INT. CLINIC - RECOVERY ROOM - DAY THREE 26

Brian's in the bed, as Mike brings him a cup of tea.

MIKE
Here's some willow bark tea. It'll help bring your fever down.

BRIAN
Thanks, Ma.

MIKE
Careful, it's hot.

He blows on it, then sips. Mike smiles. She fluffs up the pillows behind him.

MIKE
Are you hungry? Would you like some soup?

BRIAN
No, I'm fine.

She strokes his hair.

MIKE
It would be nice if you could take a nap.

BRIAN
I don't feel sleepy.

MIKE
Would you like me to read to you?

BRIAN
You don't have to.

She goes to the table and picks up a book.

MIKE
How about "Robinson Crusoe?" My father used to read that to me, when I was sick and home in bed.

(CONTINUED)


23.


CONTINUED: 26

BRIAN
I can read it myself.

MIKE
But I'd like you to rest your eyes.

She sits down beside him in the bed.

MIKE
(begins reading)
"Once, long ago, a boy named Robinson Crusoe lived in the city of York in England. His father, a well-to-do merchant, hoped that his son would follow in his footsteps and improve his fortunes."

Brian snuggles next to her, enjoying the warmth and closeness and having her undivided attention.

MIKE
"But before he was well grown the boy told his father that he would be satisfied with nothing but going to sea."


EXT. CASCADE VALLEY - DAY THREE 27

Sully and Matthew walk up the rise to the hill where, in "Rite of Passage," Matthew sat in a circle for his vision quest.

SULLY
Remember this place?

MATTHEW
'Course I remember.

Sully gestures toward a meadow.

SULLY
That's where we built the sweat lodge.

Matthew looks toward the meadow, then walks to a tree.

MATTHEW
I had to climb this tree to get the egg of a red-tailed hawk. I got scratched real bad, and then Cloud Dancing made me do it again because the egg had a crack in it.

(CONTINUED)


24.


CONTINUED: 27

SULLY
(smiles)
I don't think I slept the whole three days you were on your vision quest. Your ma was so worried, she came riding out.

MATTHEW
On the last day, I was sitting in the sunlight, thinking about all the folks I love. And suddenly this hawk came and landed right beside me. It was amazin'.

He looks around.

MATTHEW
All this'll be gone?

SULLY
(nods)
No tree. No meadow. No hawks.


+CLOSE ON MATTHEW 28

as it truly sinks in: what's about to happen.


+ON SULLY 29

watching Matthew.

SULLY
Matthew, listen to me. Preston and his men want to make sure that shipment of dynamite doesn't get through.

Matthew looks at him. But just then --


+WIDER ANGLE 30

Danforth appears and calls to Matthew.

DANFORTH
Sheriff!

Matthew whips his head around and sees Danforth. Then he looks back at Sully. Matthew hesitates, torn. After a moment:

MATTHEW
I feel bad, Sully... but I gotta do my job.

(CONTINUED)


25.

He turns and walks away toward Danforth.


+ON SULLY 30A

as he watches Matthew join Danforth, disappointed. Sully makes a decision.


INT. HOMESTEAD - DAY FOUR 31

Brian comes down the stairs, dressed for school. He pauses at the bottom of the stairs when he sees Mike in the kitchen feeding Katie. She looks over, sees him.

MIKE
Oh, Brian. I'm almost done feeding Katie, then we can ride into town. Don't forget your school books.

Brian watches Mike continue to feed Katie, then:

BRIAN
I'm still feeling a little warm.

Mike reacts and comes over to feel his forehead.

MIKE
Your fever's gone.

BRIAN
Are you sure? I'm kinda achy. Maybe I should stay home one more day.

MIKE
(gently)
I definitely think you're on the mend, Brian. Why don't you just give it a try? I'll be at the clinic if you need me.

She ruffles his hair and goes back to get Katie.


+CLOSE ON BRIAN 32

He watches Mike and Katie, then moves to gather his school books.



25A.


EXT. WOODS (SAME AS SCENE 21) - DAY FOUR 33

Preston, Billy and Ray are getting ready to take off. Sully rides up, joins them. Billy and Ray look at him suspiciously. Preston isn't sure what to expect.

(CONTINUED)


26.


CONTINUED: 33

SULLY
(to Preston)
Alright, we're gonna get that dynamite, to buy you some time, like you said.
(to Billy and Ray)
But, no shootin'. If one of you fires a shot, I'll be right on your back and haul ya to jail.

They nod their agreement.


EXT. ROAD - DAY FOUR 34

The wagon loaded with crates (supposedly containing dynamite) approaches the pass where it was ambushed before. The drivers, Pat and George, look nervous.


EXT. THICKET 35

The four men watch the wagon. Sully turns to Billy and Ray.

SULLY
Remember, no shootin'.


EXT. ROAD 36

The wagon moves up the road. Suddenly, Billy and Ray come riding down the hillside, guns drawn, and stop just above the wagon, with Sully behind them.

BILLY
Hold it!

The wagon stops, the drivers scared. Ray and Sully ride closer. Ray gets off his horse and holsters his gun.

BILLY
Put your hands up.

Ray cracks open the lid of one of the crates.

RAY
Wait a minute. What is this?

There's nothing but straw inside. He opens another crate. More straw.

RAY
(angry)
Where's the dynamite?



27.


EXT. THICKET 37

Preston watches everything going wrong.


EXT. ROAD 38

PAT
I don't know.

Ray pulls out his gun, points it at Pat.

RAY
You're lyin'!

PAT
They sent it on another wagon. On the Jamestown Road.

What happens next happens fast. Ray cocks the gun.

PAT
It's true, I swear. Please...

Ray shoots Pat in the shoulder. He drops to the ground, unconscious. Ray turns to George as if to shoot him.

But Sully dives off his horse and lunges at Ray, knocking him to the ground. His gun goes off, firing into the air. George jumps from the wagon, hitting his head on a rock, which knocks him unconscious.

Sully knocks Ray's gun away. They struggle with each other.

Billy takes off on his horse.

EXT. DANFORTH CAMP - DAY FOUR 44

There's an air of tension and turmoil as men hurry about. Matthew is questioning Preston.

PRESTON
I didn't see anything. By the time I arrived, the bandits were gone.

Danforth comes out of the tent:

DANFORTH
We got the bullet out of him. They're both still unconscious -- we'll know more when they come to. The plan worked, Sheriff.

Matthew nods. Danforth heads back in, glaring at Preston. He knows he's in trouble.

MATTHEW
How'd you happen to be there?

PRESTON
I was returning to town.

MATTHEW
With your friends?

PRESTON
Friends?

MATTHEW
The two men you were with.

PRESTON
No. They left earlier. They were riding in the opposite direction, towards Denver.

MATTHEW
Why'd they leave?

PRESTON
Our business was concluded.

Matthew senses that Preston's lying, and presses on.

MATTHEW
So you were alone.

(CONTINUED)


30.


CONTINUED: 44

PRESTON
Yes. I heard a commotion -- somewhere on the road behind me. Then I heard gun shots, so I turned and rode back.

MATTHEW
(not buying it)
Lemme get this straight. You rode back toward the shots?

PRESTON
I was cautious.
(beat)
I kept out of sight until I was certain there was no one around but the drivers.

MATTHEW
Were they unconscious?

PRESTON
Yes.

MATTHEW
Preston, if you have information and you're keepin' it from the law... Then you're an accessory.

They stare at each other.

PRESTON
I've told you what I know.

Teresa is giving the students a written test in math. She walks up and down the aisle, watching them work. Tess, Sara, and the others are bent over their papers. Brian looks up from his and stares off into space, day dreaming.

Time is up. Hand in your tests please.

(CONTINUED)

(surprised)
Brian, you have not finished.

Sorry.

I must take it now.

He hands it to her, a look of defeat on his face.


EXT. CLINIC - DAY FOUR 48

Mike is walking a patient out of the clinic when she sees Brian pass by, lugging his schoolbooks unhappily.

MIKE
Hello Brian.

BRIAN
Ma.

He tries to walk by, but stops when she asks:

MIKE
How was school?

BRIAN
(uncomfortable; he knows it's not true, but:)
All right.

MIKE
Did you do well on your arithmetic test?

BRIAN
(beat, quiet)
I failed.

(CONTINUED)


32.


CONTINUED: 48

Mike reacts, stunned.

MIKE
You failed the test?

Brian nods, but says nothing. Mike stands there a moment in shock, trying to find a reason.

MIKE
Perhaps it was because you missed school?

Brian shakes his head no.

BRIAN
I don't want to talk about it.

MIKE
Brian, you've never failed a test before.

BRIAN
(sullen)
Well, I have now.

He starts off, but Mike's voice stops him:

MIKE
We... we should talk about this.

BRIAN
(defensive)
It's just one test.
(beat, then)
I gotta get home and do some chores.

He leaves. Mike stares after him, perplexed and concerned.

Three.

(CONTINUED)


34.


CONTINUED: 53

Matthew and Danforth exchange a look. They assume it's Preston, Billy and Ray.

MATTHEW
Can you describe 'em?

PAT
Two of 'em were... I don't know -- they had hats and guns -- nothin' special. But the third one was different.

MATTHEW
How was that?
(thinking of Preston)
Was he dressed different? More fancy?

PAT
Kinda like an Injun.

MATTHEW
(puzzled)
An Indian?

PAT
He wasn't an Injun, but he had long hair... brown hair... and a coat made out of that buckskin the Injuns use.


+CLOSE ON MATTHEW 54

It dawns on him: Sully was with the outlaws?


+BACK TO SCENE 54A

Door opens and Mike walks in.

TERESA
Dr. Quinn. Good afternoon.

MIKE
May I?

TERESA
Certainly.

Mike walks toward Teresa's desk.

MIKE
(awkward)
How are your classes going?

TERESA
Very well, thank you. I am getting to know my students better. It takes time.

MIKE
I'm sure. I... wanted to speak with you about Brian. He's always done well in school. Extremely well.

TERESA
Yes.

MIKE
I understand he failed his arithmetic test.

TERESA
He only completed half the test.

MIKE
What happened?

TERESA
I am not sure. I am glad you came to see me, because I wanted to ask... Is there something at home that could be troubling him?

MIKE
No.

TERESA
Sometimes, if there is a problem in the home, there will be a problem in the school.

(CONTINUED)


36.


CONTINUED: (2) 55

MIKE
I assure you there's no problem at home. Perhaps there's a problem here... with another student... or....

TERESA
With the teacher?

MIKE
He's never failed a test before.

TERESA
Brian and I have no problem.

MIKE
Then what do you suppose it is?

TERESA
Haven't you noticed... a change in him the past few weeks?

Mike quiets, knowing this to be true.

TERESA
He is not paying attention. His mind wanders...

MIKE
That's not like Brian.

TERESA
Something is disturbing him.
(beat)
If you wish, I can talk to him and try to find out what...

(CONTINUED)


37.


CONTINUED: (3) 55

What are you doing out here?

MATTHEW
Come on down.

SULLY
The man who shot the driver -- he's up there.

MATTHEW
I wanna talk to you!

SULLY
He tried to kill 'em both. We gotta move fast.

MATTHEW
So you were there?

SULLY
Look, Matthew, I'll explain it to ya later.

MATTHEW
No, you'll explain it to me now --

SULLY
It's not what you think --

MATTHEW
You ambushed that wagon --

Sully climbs down from the rocks and comes to face Matthew.

SULLY
You don't know the whole story --

MATTHEW
I know all I need to know.

SULLY
(points to cliff)
You're lettin' him get away!

(CONTINUED)

MATTHEW
Forget about him! I'm talkin' to you, Sully. You were tryin' to steal the dynamite.

SULLY
To stop the dam.

MATTHEW
Two men are lyin' in camp in serious condition...

SULLY
I didn't shoot them.

MATTHEW
You haven't been honest with me since this whole thing started. You been tellin' me one thing and doing somethin' else.

SULLY
I was trying to make sure no one got hurt.

MATTHEW
That's my job. You shoulda let me handle this instead of takin' it on yourself. You're not the law. I'm the law -- and I'm arrestin' you!

He takes out his handcuffs and goes to put them on Sully.

SULLY
(low, but firm)
Put those away.

Matthew hesitates, stares at Sully. Then he puts the handcuffs back.

MATTHEW
Let's go.

They start walking back toward their horses.
