[Doc has killed five men at a hotel near the Mexican border and carjacked a cowboy in his pickup]

Cowboy:
Ya know, if I's you kids what I'd do? I'd quit this runnin' around the country. Ya know, git a little bit a money together 'n, hell, buy a place 'n settle down 'n raise a family. I've been married for 35 years, same old gal; man she's a tough ol' hide. God dang, everything I am, I owe ta her.

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Say a, pull over over here would ya.

Cowboy:
Okay, what ever you say. [Pulls over] Now what?

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Let's get out a spell. [Cowboy and Doc get out of the truck. Doc and Carol exchange glances and smile at each other]

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
How much money did you make last year?

Cowboy:
Aw, reckon about five thousand.

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Suppose I give you ten thousand for that truck of yours.

Cowboy:
You're serious?

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
I am.

Cowboy:
An'a I keep ma' mouth shut, an' I don't say nothin' 'bout the truck, 'n I never seen either one a the two of ya.

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
That's what I want. [Carol counts out some hundreds]

Cowboy:
How 'bout twenty?

[Doc smiles and laughs]

Carol Ainsley McCoy:
How 'bout thirty?

Cowboy:
God damn, ma'am, you got a deal!

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Pay the man, honey. [Carol pays the cowboy]

Cowboy:
Thank ya, ma'am.

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Now you're gonna have to walk on back to the border.

Cowboy:
Oh that's alright. Don't worry 'bout me.

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
Hope you find what you're lookin' for. [Shakes hands with the Cowboy]

Cowboy:
Vaya con Dios. You too, maam. [Walks away] Take care, ya hear? God damn! [laughing and walking]

Carter 'Doc' McCoy:
[to Carol] Come on. [Drives away in the most beat up truck I've ever seen]
