The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Rance, we'll need you
for some of that legal stuff later.

"Ransom Stoddard, Attorney at Law."

- Peter Ericson, American citizen.
- Go on in, Pete.

- See you for supper, Pete?
- Yeah.

- Tom, look, we need a statehood!
- I agree.

Herbert? You're too young to vote.
Back to school.

Greetings. Hey, excuse me. Excuse me.
- I'll have the usual.
- Bar's closed.

The bar is closed, Mr. Editor,
during voting.

You can blame your lawyer friend.
He says that's one of the fundamental
laws of democracy, no exception.

No exceptions for the working press?
That's carrying democracy too far.

A small beer.
Bar's closed.
Give me that bung starter.

All right. Settle down!
Sit down, everybody!

Come on. Settle down.
Since our legal authority
closed the bar on us,

I propose that Ransom Stoddard,
Attorney at Law,

come up here and run this meeting.
- I second the motion.
- I third it.
