Quotes Mayberly: You all right?
Leland Winters: Yeah. It was Gordon Kahl, son Yorie, Scott Faul, Wilbur Lundy, guy named Lester Tompkins, all members of the Posse. Kahl did the most damage.
[angry]
Leland Winters: He shot Bob Cheshire point blank. He executed him.
Mayberly: You're sure it was Kahl?
Leland Winters: Hell, yeah. I talked to him at the clinic after.
Mayberly: [surprised] What?
Leland Winters: The ambulance took us all to Doc Earns' clinic in Medina and there he was.
Mayberly: All of you were there?
Leland Winters: It's the closest doctor. Yorie was there and I guess Kahl came to see how he was.
Mayberly: [disbelieving] What is it with this place? You guys shoot the hell out of each other and get together later for a beer? Why didn't you take him right there?
Leland Winters: [angry] He was armed! Mister, he killed Bob Cheshire! Don't you think I would have gone for him if I could've?
Mayberly: Where'd he go?
Leland Winters: [angry] Out the door!
