Season 2 Quotes

02x11 - Gift From a Gunman Season 2 / Episode 11: - Gift From a Gunman

Will Gorman: Don't try it, boy. Don't try it.
02x11 - Gift From a Gunman Season 2 / Episode 11: - Gift From a Gunman

Host: These were among the last weapons of Bill Longley, a gunman credited with killing 32 people. Bill retired to become a farmer - I guess he figured it was time to stop raising Cain and start raising a few beans. It didn't last long, though, so he was hanged October 11, 1878. His newspaper epitaph read, "Bill Longley got the rope today / Gave up the farm for gunplay. / Should have stayed behind the plow / He's pushing up the daisies now." In the story we have chosen for you this week, "Gift From a Gunman", we'll see how difficult it is for a gunman to retire.
