Alias Smith and Jones (1971–1973)
[first lines for first season's episodes]
[narrator speaks over scenes of Heyes and Curry committing various robberies]
Narrator: Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry - the two most successful outlaws in the history of the West. And in all the trains and banks they robbed, they never shot anyone. This made our two latter-day Robin Hoods very popular - with everyone but the railroads and the banks.
[cut to scene of posse in hot pursuit of Heyes and Curry]
Jed 'Kid' Curry: There's one we thing we gotta get, Heyes.
Hannibal Heyes: What's that?
Jed 'Kid' Curry: Out of this business!
[cut to meeting between Heyes, Curry and Sheriff Trevors]
Sheriff Lom Trevors: The governor can't come flat out and give you amnesty now. First you have to prove you deserve it.
Hannibal Heyes: Ah. So all we have to do is just stay out of trouble till the governor figures we deserve amnesty.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: But in the mean time, we'll still be wanted.
Sheriff Lom Trevors: Well, that's true. Till then only you, me and the Governor will know about it. It'll be our little secret.
Hannibal Heyes: That's a good deal?
[cut to scene where another posse is in hot pursuit of Heyes and Curry]
Jed 'Kid' Curry: I sure wish the governor'd let a few more people in on our secret!
Jed 'Kid' Curry: Heyes, there's only one thing been keepin' you alive all this time.
Hannibal Heyes: And what's that?
Jed 'Kid' Curry: Me.
[while Curry buys stagecoach tickets, Heyes scribbles the text of a telegram to Sheriff Trevors]
Jed 'Kid' Curry: Let me see that.
Hannibal Heyes: You can't read my writing!
Jed 'Kid' Curry: Can you?
Hannibal Heyes: Curiosity is a vice. It's one of the few I don't have.
Hannibal Heyes: What are you sweatin' for, Kid? I've handled nitroglycerin before.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: I know, Heyes, but there's always a last time.
Hannibal Heyes: Look, Wheat, I agree, we gotta bust him out. But it's gonna take finesse.
Kyle Murtry: Wheat didn't bring any of that.
