High Noon

All right! There's gonna be fighting
when Kane and Miller meet.

And somebody's going to get hurt,
that's for sure.

Now... People up north
are thinking about this town.

Thinking about sending money down here,
to put up stores and factories.

It would mean a lot to this town, an awful lot,
but if they'll read about shooting in the streets,
what are they going to think?

I'll tell you. They'll think
this is just another wide-open town,

and everything we worked for
will be wiped out.

In one day, this town
will be sat back five years,

and I don't think we can let that happen.
Mind you, you all know
how I feel about this man.

He's a mighty brave man, a good man.
He didn't have to come back today.

And for his sake, and a sake of this town,
I wish he hadn't.

Because if he's not here when Miller comes,
my hunch is,
there won't be any trouble, not one bit.

Tomorrow we'll have a new marshal
and if we offer him our services,

I think we can handle anything
that comes along.

To me that makes sense.
To me that's the only way out of this.

Will, I think you better go
while there's still time.

It's better for you and...it's better for us.
