Dying Words: Gunsmoke, "What the Whiskey Drummer Heard" (27 April 1957).


"I'm dying. I can't kill anybody now ... I killed lots of men. Important men. I told them about it first. And then I killed them."

"But why?"

"I don't know. I had to. I just had to do it."

Killed, Wilbur Hawkins (Vic Perrin) tells Matt Dillon (James Arness) about his compulsion to kill. Dodge City hasn't seen a serial killer like this since, uh...Matt Dillon. (Case in point: "Bloody Hands")

Gunsmoke, "What the Whiskey Drummer Heard", wr. John Meston (story) and Gil Doud (teleplay), dir. Andrew V McLaglen.
