STEVE: My mistake, Cactus. Just noticed that paint smudge behind your ear.
CACTUS: Eh, paint smudge? Musta dripped on me somewhere. Well, take it easy, boys.
PACKY: Steve, air you a'thinkin' what I'm a'thinkin'? Everyone knows Cactus was kicked

END OF SCENE 1
PACKY: Funny, Cactus Harry's sleepin' outside his cabin.
PACKY: That's Fury or I'm a grasshopper's uncle. Not too dark yet. Better send up
smoke signals with muh pipe so's Straight Arrow'll come keerful-like.
ARROW: Ah, Fury, Packy's signal. Cactus Harry sleeps beneath the sky tonight. Quiet,
big horse, we must surprise him. Now!
CACTUS: Whut in tarnation - Straight Arrow! Stop!
ARROW: When I finish binding you, robber, I came to see if Steve Adams was right
in guessin' you're the payroll thief that robbed the Colonel's safe. Packy,
search the cabin.
CACTUS: Packy! No, stay out! Yuh cain't go in thar!
PACKY: Straight Arrow, thar's the missin' money under that thar bunk.
CACTUS: It's mine, mine - I stole it - it's mine!
ARROW: Nevertheless, you must be punished for your crime, Cactus Harry. We will go to
Colonel Yessir and tell him how you and your accomplice painted your faces like
Indians and stole the payroll from the Colonel's safe. Undoubtedly your partner
was Whisker Will.
CACTUS: I confess.
PACKY: Good! Now, Arrow, let's git that payroll to the Colonel, so's I kin collect from
