Matlock reluctantly accompanies Julie and his other friends on a bus trip to a dude ranch. The bus breaks down on the way to the ranch, stranding the group in the middle of nowhere. While waiting for the bus to be fixed, Matlock is accidentally knocked unconscious by a falling board and has a dream where he's a visiting lawyer in the old west and has to save Conrad, a black cowboy accused of killing the town sheriff.
