JOHN WAYNE: That's what's important,

to feel useful in this old world...

hit a lick against what's wrong

or to say a word for what's right

even though you get walloped for saying that word.

I may sound like a Bible beater

yelling up a revival at a river-crossing camp meeting,

but that don't change the truth none.

There's right, and there's wrong.

- You got to do one or the other.
- [WHOOSHING]

You do the one and you're living...

you do the other, and you may be walking around,

but you're dead as a beaver hat.

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

So? I...

I hear you're a banker now? Is that right?

Well.

I run an Asset Management Fund.

We advise small businesses on charitable giving, titling of assets, and income replacement strategies.

I've been praying.

Yeah?

Don't really know why. But... just have.

Mm. No, I get it.

I think your daddy would, too.

- You think?
- Oh, yeah.

He said you, uh,

- used to drink gasoline...
- [CHUCKLES] and killed angels with a chainsaw. Is that true?

No, that's not bloody true.

He's exaggeratin'.

It was engine coolant.

[CHUCKLES]

He said you were the toughest guy he ever met.

Really?

Yeah.

That means a lot coming from him.

Mom, too.

She talked about you a lot.

All the time, actually. [CHUCKLES]

Yeah, she wondered why you never came back to see them.

I always meant to. I just...

[VOICE BREAKING] I always... I run out of time, you know?

I get it.

She loved you...

very much.

Over a hundred and fifty years, and I've been stabbed, bloody chopped up, blown up, dropped out of airplanes.

And you just... I just kept goin' because that's what you do.

You just got to pick yourself up, you know, just forget the pain, try and carry on.

But your bloody mom...

Do you know she shot me twice in the chest?

Right in the heart... two times.

[KIDS SHOUTING INDISTINCTLY]

And that was years ago.

But it still hurts.

Guys! Quit your messing and be respectful!

- I'm sorry.
- Oh, it's alright.

[SNIFFLES]

I think I'll get going.

Where to now?

Bangkok? Tijuana?

Always did love hearing about your adventures.

Mm? No, I...

I think I'll try someplace new.

Alright.

Mr. Cassidy?

Will we ever see you again?
