Earp comes to the office to relieve Deputy Hogan when Hogan notices Earp has a loose button. Earp tells Hogan he hears he is courting the widow seamstress Mrs. Phillips but Hogan says she has no interest in him or anyone else. A telegram arrives saying the convict Dundee that Earp arrested has escaped the chain gang and is believed headed to Dodge City for revenge. Earp wanders over to Mrs. Phillips shop to have the button fixed only to find Hogan there doing the same. After Hogan leaves and she mends Earp's button, Earp inquires as to whether she might be willing to socialize. Deputy Hal asks to put on extra deputies due to Dundee. Earp finds Mrs. Phillips out for a midnight walk and escorts her home where she agrees to a picnic with him at 1:00 pm on Sunday. Earp tries to skip the picnic but is convinced by her and the deputies to go. The couple has a good time as each reveal their life story. The result is tricky conflict for Earp ending with a sad situation in his life. Written by
