'Hopalong' Cassidy: [after another pause] Whatta you think? 'Windy' Halliday: Ah, by crickety, I'm with yeh! 'Hopalong' Cassidy: I ain't hankering to get you into trouble, Windy. 'Windy' Halliday: Awww, trouble don't mean nuthin' to me. 'Hopalong' Cassidy: [smiling slightly] All right, you figure it out while I get my riggin'. 'Windy' Halliday: [to Lucky after Hoppy has left] Trouble? Why, I was hatched in trouble! Born on an open range in a howlin' blizzard! Cut my teeth on a gun barrel! Fed on cactus soup til I was six! Peh, he talks about herdin' me into trouble! Peh, heh, ha, huh! 'Lucky' Jenkins: [introducing Windy to Crowder as a piano player for the saloon] Brought you a new professor - Windy Halliday, known far and wide as a cowboy troubador. 'Windy' Halliday: [to Windy] This is Ace Crowder. He runs the place. 'Windy' Halliday: Hi. 'Ace' Crowder: Professor, ah? [laughs derisively] 'Ace' Crowder: Looks more like something than crawled out of the bung hole of a beer keg! 'Ace' Crowder: [to Windy] Can ye play the piana? 'Windy' Halliday: Shoo, heck, can I play the pi-an-ie? Why up in Deadwood City the cowboys used to call me the Padderhooski of the Weat! 'Ace' Crowder: [laughs] 'Lucky' Jenkins: Yeah! Around cowboys he's known as a musician, but around musicians he's known as a cowboy. Croupier: Number eight on the black. 'Hopalong' Cassidy: That's me again. Faro Annie: Well, Bill, you must have been born with a silver horseshoe in your mouth! 'Hopalong' Cassidy: [humorously] Why, Annie, you ain't insinuatin' I got a big mouth, are you? Faro Annie: [flirtatiously] Big or little, good-lookin', you got a nice mouth. 'Hopalong' Cassidy: [he smiles] 'Hopalong' Cassidy: Say, are you the big chief around here, or are you talkin' for somebody else? 'Ace' Crowder: I'm the big chief's right hand man. 'Hopalong' Cassidy: Oh... right hand man, hunh? That's fine... 'Hopalong' Cassidy: [he walks toward the door and turns] You get this, Crowder - I don't do business with anybody's right hand man! [he leaves and slams the door behind him] [last lines] Faro Annie: [wistfully as Hoppy rides out of town] Funny, all my life men like Cassidy been sayin' goodbye to me.
