    • Ben: (to Joe) Very hard to find good workers these days. You know Hoss even in the bosom of one's own family it's difficult to find a hard working young man.

    • Hoss: No, Joe, nobody loves you. Of course anybody who loves you couldn't read or write no-how.

    • Candy: Not a rope, landlubber. It's a line.

    Notes (3)

    • New on location scenes were filmed at Zephyr Cove and Tahoe Meadows at Lake Tahoe, Nevada

    • German episode title: "Überfall auf den Dampfer", meaning "Attack On The Steamboat".

    • Two of Michael Landon's future co-stars on Little House on the Prairie are part of this episode's guest cast. Karl Swenson portrayed Captain Nells Larson, the steamboat captain and ex-criminal who once shared a jail cell with chief bad guy Jameson Fillmore; while Kevin Hagen was Brother Guy Gilray, a phony preacher. Of course, Little House fans know Swenson better as Walnut Grove mayor (and founder) Lars Hanson, while Hagen was far more admirable as Dr. Hiram Baker.
