When Pierce “accidentally” spills water on Laura, Tom lunges forward and slaps him. Tuttle explains that Pierce killed four men, and two were Texas Rangers.

Major Tom Rock: What's he going to prison for?
Tuttle: To get fitted for a rope. He killed four men. Two of them were Texas Rangers.
Pierce: If I'm lucky, I might make it three.
Jason: Any orders, major?
Major Tom Rock: Fire at will, captain.
Laura Rock: I wonder if the old man ever did those things he boasted about.
Major Tom Rock: I don't know, but he died the way he talked. he knew one thing that most people never learn. You come into this world with nothing, and that's the way you go out.
