  • Not one of the better episodes, perhaps, but still interesting. A rare view of a significant sub-culture of San Francisco.

    • Magruder: You uh, know much about Orientals?
      Paladin: A little.
      Magruder: Well, then, you know they ain't like you and me.
      Paladin: I'm not at all sure that I know that.

    • Hey Boy: But I think you are--please forgive--a fool to get mixed up in such fatal business.
      Paladin: Hey Boy, you know what Lao Chai says. "The man who knows he is a fool is not a great fool."

    • Loo Sam: You are in the wrong place, perhaps?
      Paladin: The wrong place for you.
      Loo Sam: And what is the right place for me?
      Paladin: San Quentin Prison.

    • Magruder: Now, all the police department can pay you is twenty dollars a day. And, of course, a grand civic funeral if one of them highbinders parts your hair with a hatchet.

    • Paladin: Will you take me to Joe Tshin's father? Hey Boy: Now? In the dark of night? Paladin: Now. In the dark of night. Hey Boy: I'm bent Oriental. Rather lose face than die. But for you...all right. Paladin: Hey Boy, I thank you for your sacrifice. I'll join you here.

    • It was during the filming of this episode that Lisa Lu (Li Hwa) was asked if she would be willing to take on the continuing role of Hey Girl the following season, as they had just learned that Kam Tong was going to be leaving to star in the series "Mr. Garland" (AKA "The Garland Touch").
