Storyline

Festus pursues the cold-hearted Rance Woolfe after a brutal robbery in Dodge City. Rance heads to his brother's farm. Not wanting his notoriously lawless brother around, his brother agrees to let him stay just long enough to refresh himself. Rance has other ideas. Turning on his brother, he murders him for his money. When his brother's son, Buck Henry, discovers his uncle has murdered his father, Buck vows to kill Rance. Having tracked Rance to his brother's farm, Festus orders Buck to sit out the chase. Determined to avenge his father's death, Buck heads on without Festus. When Festus realizes what has happened, he gives chase, hoping to reach Buck before Rance has a chance to kill him. Written by Christopher D. <imdbreviews@gmail.com>

One of the Best Lines Ever
19 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this episode only once, and it was probably about 25 years after it was made. I remembered Kurt Russell as being about 13 years old in the show, but the episode date would have made him 23. Whatever.

Anyway, Russell (the gunfighter's nephew) is chasing his murderer uncle around the country, comes into town and tells the bartender he is hunting Rance Woolf. The bartender says "A kid like you can't outfight a killer like Rance Woolfe", and Russell replies "I didn't come here to fight him. I came here to kill him".

As simple and straightforward as you can get. With all these Kung Fu movies where the bad guy spends what seems like hours "punishing" his foe (and then ends up finally getting killed when the good guy pulls a surprise move), that line was just plain fantastic.
