    • Pappyism: You wanna know what's goin' on in a pack rat's mind, you just find out what he hides with his loot.

    • Cy: (to Willie) Come on, son. Chores are one thing we're never short of around here...especially with so few of us doin' 'em.

    • Shifty: New brand of cards? How come, boss? Tom: Simpler design, Shifty, harder to mark.

    • Cy: Well, uh, thanks for helpin' out, son, you did a fine job. But..here..here's $2.
      Willie: Oh, no. I can't accept cash money.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Philo attempts to remove the cow from his room, he makes mention of cutting it up into parts, including the cut of beef known as filet mignon. The term filet mignon didn't hit the shores of the United States from France until 1898, about ten years after this episode is supposed to take place. It would also only appear first in the swankiest New York restaurants so it's extremely doubtful that someone like Philo would have ever even heard the term in his lifetime.

    • Title:
      Referencing the 1960 movie The Magnificent Seven, which was an American feature film about seven gunfighters hired to defend a Mexican village that was based on the 1954 Akira Kurosawa Japanese film, Seven Samurai.
