Mrs. Perkins:
[Having led Taylor Barton and his associates to Latigo Smith's room]
They come sneakin' in here lookin' at the register tryin' to find the room number of Mr. Smith. I tried to tell 'em I got four Smiths.
Latigo:
Well, thank you Mrs. Perkins, uh, we wouldn't wanna' keep you from your work.
Mrs. Perkins:
I suppose the way they come sneakin' in here that you're another one of them gunfighters that these stupid jackass miners keep hirin' around here. I suppose they're gonna' hire you, so that you can shoot some mother's son and then some other mother's son can shoot you.
Taylor Barton:
Martha, for the love of heaven, unhinge your jaw and depart!
Mrs. Perkins:
You see now why I DEMAND my rent in advance every day? Harrumph... Another "Smith." Just more of 'em comin' all the time getting' themselves killed off...
[Mrs. Perkins departs, muttering to herself]

Transcript:
They come sneaking in,
looking at the register,
Trying to find
mr. Smith.
I tried to tell them
I got four Smiths.
Thank you, mrs. Perkins.
We wouldn't want to keep you
from your work.
I suppose, the way they sneak in,
That you're another gunfighter
That these stupid miners
keep hiring around here.
I suppose they're hiring you
So you can shoot some other mother's son,
Then some other mother's son
can shoot you.
Martha, unhinge your jaw and depart.
You see now why I demand my rent
In advance every day?
Another Smith.
More of them coming all the time,
Getting themselves killed off.
The money?
Swifty in there?
Yes. The money?
Before we talk to mr. Morgan,
A little superstition of his.
He leaves money matters to me.
I thank you not to mention
anything about the transaction.
Uh, sorry. Didn't mean
to startle you, Swifty.
That was close.
Don't ever come up on my blind side
like that.
No, sir, mr. Morgan.
That's close enough.
What do you want?
I came to see the killings.
What killings?
You, for one, and those others.
It should be quite a show.
There's four of you
and one of Swifty Morgan.
I thought Morgan was on our side.
There's been some changes made.
Morgan, he took the Colonel's money,
And then took money from the other
mine owners.
Don't sound like fair dealings to me,
But you fellas will teach him
That honesty's the best policy.
