Jake Sims: In that case, be prepared to bet your life!
Magnus: They're waiting for you, Major - those who lived through Arroyo Blanco... and those who died.
Major Liam Mars: Go through that door, they'll kill you and the girl!
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: And if I don't, maybe just her, Major.
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: Save the orders, Major. I'm not one of your troops.
Magnus: Again you've gambled and lost, Bat Masterson.
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: I've found that a man that takes a chance always has one, Magnus.
Tobias Tinker: This is going to be a private execution.
Magnus: And a slow one. First, we will remove the wings of the fly.
Narrator: After a truce had been established between Comanche and settler, the American Southwest gradually, and at times uneasily, adjusted to living in peace. But to some men, there can be no peace - ever. It was through this soul-scarred breed that a life or death decision was forced upon Bat Masterson, the man who became a legend in his own time.
