Billy: But still ain’t noboby rides over them, not on painty or any other kinda horseflesh is my best guess. . . . least wise not on purpose.
Slim: Regardless, nothin’ would flat out pleasure me more than ta sit here an’ chin wag with ya, Mr. . . . . Mr. . . . dad blame it I plumb fergot my manners, name’s Slim Sagebrush, (points at Billy), that thar sad lookin’ hombre he’s known ‘round these parts as Billy Bendflaster, over ta the other side, (points to Whip), that ornery lookin’ sidewinder’s none other than Whip Wheelwright. And what be yore name, fer a fact?
Wild: Fur Afact? Now just what kinda name would that be fer a cowboy? Me I catch me lotsa critters skin em fer their fur but never once crossed ma mind ta take on the name “Fur” I tell ya that flat out. Fur Afact, some name that!

Now not once did ol’ Slim come out fer ta say fer a minute we was ‘a hankerin’ fer ta call y’alls Fur. I mean, what fer would we’uns want fer ta call y’alls Fur, what fer I ask y’alls?
Wild: Shore as yore name’s Billy Bendfaster .. .
Billy: That’s Bendflaster.
Wild: My apologies an’ sympathies an’ sorrowfuls and all. Fact is though, my name is Wild Arthur Winston.
Whip, does double take: Wild Arthur Winston? Whatever kinda name is that fer an out-west hombre fer ta have, I do ask y’all?
Wild: Well all the good names was taken when I set out ta get me a name. Tried out Wild Bill Hiccup, like ta hit the wall on that one I tell ya! No better luck with Wyatt Burp.
