Narrator: Arizona Territory, 1884. On his way to Tombstone, Bat Masterson suffered a humiliating interruption. He did not like interruptions, as he proved convincingly during this event in the colorful life of the man who became a legend in his own time.
Martha Phelps: Mr. Masterson! You sure do look elegant.
Bat: And you, Mrs. Phelps, are enough to inspire any man to look his best.
Bat: All it took was confidence, Sam. A great philosopher once said, "When moral courage feels it is right, there is no personal daring of which it is incapable." or words to that effect.
Sam Phelps: That's pretty good.
Bat: Yeah--especially, uh, when you back it with a shotgun.
