Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This here sure is Dallas, Texas, the way it stands today. But hidden amid the modern buildings there still stands today a small reminder of the way it used to be, the very first jail house. It was built to house the very first bad man in the history of Texas. Now remember this was a long time ago, back when Texas was young, mighty young.
