    • (Paladin spots a body lying on the ground and hastens to investigate) Girl's voice: I wouldn't do that iffen I was you. (Paladin looks up to see a young girl, holding a shotgun) Paladin: Ah, then the shoes were for you. (Starts to straighten up) Girl: And I wouldn't do that neither, iffen I was you. Paladin: Well, what would you do iffen you was me? Girl: First of all, I'd hand me your gun--gentle-like. (Paladin sets his gun down) Then I'd turn him over. (Paladin does so) You kill him? (Paladin shakes his head) Then what are you doin' here? Paladin: I saw that horse running loose and I picked him up and followed the trail. Girl: Why? Paladin: 'Cause I wondered if I wouldn't find something like this. Girl: Why? Paladin: Because there was blood on the saddlebags! Girl: Well, it weren't your blood, was it, or blood of your blood?

    • Sarah Jane: Don't make no never mind. I know who killed him. A Tyler. And now I'm gonna kill me a Tyler. Paladin: A Tyler? Sarah Jane: Any Tyler. Paladin: What about your father? Sarah Jane: Well, what I aim to do is about my father. Paladin: Oh? (Walks over to the Tyler horse and takes a spade from behind the saddle) Well, a man doesn't have to be blood of my blood for me to do him the common courtesy of putting him into the ground.

    • (Sarah Jane and Paladin stand by her father's grave) Paladin: "Any man's death diminishes me. For I am involved with mankind". Sarah Jane: Be those words from the Book? Paladin: Well, they're words from a book. It was written by a man named John Donne. Sarah Jane: Words spoken over the dead should be from the Book. "The Lord my God is a jealous god". Paladin: "God is Love". Sarah Jane: "Honor thy father and thy mother". Paladin: "Love thy neighbor as thyself". Sarah Jane: "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth"! Paladin: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy". Sarah Jane: Don't you listen to him, Pa! I'll get me a Tyler, I'll get me a Tyler for sure, and then you can rest in peace.

    • (Paladin snatches Sarah Jane's shotgun, putting his derringer in her face) Sarah Jane: (Laughing) Ah, that ain't no gun, that's a play-purty. Paladin: It's a gun. Sarah Jane: Why? Why? Paladin: Because I thought that I had to protect you from others, and it turned out I have to protect the whole world from you!

    • (Paladin slips up behind the gunman with his derringer) Paladin: Easy, now. Easy! I'll take that gun. (Gets a good look at his opponent) Well, the good Lord protect me from children!

    • Paladin's quotation from John Donne (1572-1631) comes from Devotions upon Emergent Occasions (1624). The passage is one of Donne's best known: "No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main, if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

      The first time I saw this episode I thought that the costumer Joseph Dimmitt deserved a bonus for providing Sarah Jane Darrow with that derby hat. It defined her character and gave actress Jena Engstrom a place to work from.
