Two bounty hunters with the same intentions team up to track down a Western outlaw.

[first title card]
Title card: Where life had no value, death, sometimes, had its price. That is why the bounty killers appeared.

Tell me, Colonel… Were you ever young?
Monco
Yup. And just as reckless as you. Then one day, something happened. It made life very precious to me.

Col. Douglas Mortimer
What’s that?

Monco
[Mortimer shoots a glance at him]
Or is the question indiscreet?
Monco
[pause, then] No. No, the question isn’t indiscreet. But the answer could be.

Col. Douglas Mortimer

[last lines]
[counting reward sums of outlaws he just killed] Ten thousand… twelve thousand… fifteen… sixteen… seventeen… twenty-two. Twenty-two?
Monco
[a wounded Groggy comes from behind and raises his gun; Monco whirls and shoots him dead]
…Twenty-seven.
Monco
Any trouble, boy?

Col. Douglas Mortimer
No, old man. Thought I was having trouble with my adding. It’s all right now.

Monco

Well well, if it isn’t the smoker. Well… Remember me, amigo?
Wild, The Hunchback
M-Mm.

Col. Douglas Mortimer
‘Course you do. El Paso.

Wild, The Hunchback
It’s a small world.

Col. Douglas Mortimer
Yes, and very, very bad. Now come on, you light another match.

Wild, The Hunchback
I generally smoke just after I eat. Why don’t you come back in about ten minutes?

Col. Douglas Mortimer
Ten minutes you’ll be smoking in hell. *Get up!*

Wild, The Hunchback

Alive or dead? It’s your choice.
– Monco

Hey, Mister, you just can’t pull the emergency cord and jump off! Tell me, why did you stop that train? If you wanna get off, you’re…
Train Conductor
[looks at Mortimer’s gun]
Well, the railroad company would might be pleased to make any arrangements for any passenger, if you wanna get off, Dear Sir.

I did get off. Thanks.

Col. Douglas Mortimer

When the chimes end, pick up your gun. Try and shoot me, Colonel. Just try.
– El Indio

One from the outside one from the inside.There’s no other way.One of us will have to join Indio’s gang.
Col. Douglas Mortimer
Why did you look at me when you said one of us?

Monco
Because they don’t know you.Wild sees me and his hump will catch on fire.

Col. Douglas Mortimer
Tell me Colonel.How do you propose that I join up with Indio?Maybe bring him a bunch of roses.

Monco

[discussing strategy to defeat Indio] When two hunters go after the same prey, they usually end up shooting each other in the back. And we don’t want to shoot each other in the back.
Col. Douglas Mortimer
[amused] Then the Colonel dies…

Monco

Adios amigo!
– El Indio

I didn’t hear what the bet was.
‘Baby’ Red Cavanaugh
Your life.

Monco

[to Moprtimer, referring to the watch he took from Mortimer without his knowing] Very careless of you, old man.
