Several of the townsfolk in North Fork are frightened when John Holliver returns. He had first come some 5 years before and several of them, including Nils Swenson and Eddie Halstead ran him out of town. Perhaps the most affected however is the town's gunsmith, Henry Waller who has convinced himself that Holliver is out to get him personally. Lucas is acting Marshal and Waller is embarrassed by his own cowardliness. With no one apparently ready to stand with him, Lucas prepares to meet Holliver and his pals alone.

Nice sound: "Waller & Son"
It makes me feel proud, Pa.
No more proud than me, son.
"Waller & Son." Gee, Pa, that makes them partners.
And that gives me an idea! Why don't we put a sign like that over our barn?
Do you think we need a sign... partner?
