Shane and Wilson face each other in a bar.
Shane: So you’re Jack Wilson?
Wilson: What’s that mean to you, Shane?
Shane: I’ve heard about you.
Wilson: What have you heard, Shane?
Shane moves opposite Wilson.
Shane: I’ve heard that you’re a low-down Yankee liar.
Wilson: Prove it.

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week is bar fights, suggested by Dean Scott. Today’s suggestion by Michael McGruther.
Trivia: When writer A.B. Guthrie Jr. came on board the project, he didn’t know what a screenplay looked like.
