    • Bellingham: Now, look, you're into me $500. I'll make it $1,000 if they stay in town and do the show tonight. Paladin: I can try. Bellingham: And remember my establishment has to remain in one piece. Paladin: Well, that could happen. Bellingham: And I've gotta be here, too. And alive, besides.

    • Paladin: Hello, Ben. (Long pause) Ben: Paladin. Nobody gun you down yet? Paladin: They keep trying. Ben: Good luck to them.

    • Charles: When (Paladin) began issuing orders in that tone of voice. I came close to striking him, if you hadn't held my arm. Victoria: I did? Charles: Yes.

    • Paladin: This is not a theatrical costume I am wearing. This isn't a toy. It's a gun. There are six bullets in it, possibly six lives, and it's part of my working gear.

    • Jackson: How much you paying? Bellingham: Oh, roughly $100. (Jackson glares at him) Uh, roughly. Smooth it out, it's more like $500. That's it, $500. Uh... $1,000. Jackson: Then that's what I'm getting. Bellingham: Now, wait a minute, Mr. Jackson. You gotta let a man put by a little money for his old age. Jackson: Maybe you won't need it. I'll take the job.

    • The Shakespearean actors were based on an actual acting couple, although the timing is roughly forty years previous to Paladin's era.

      Lucia Elizabeth Bartollozzi, (June 1797-Aug 8, 1856) half English, half Italian, married Auguste Armand Vestris at the age of 16. He abandoned her four years later, but she continued using his name in her theater career. She was both an actress and a contralto opera singer, and, while popular in her time, was better known as a theater producer and manager. In 1838 she married Charles James Mathews (Dec 26, 1803--June 24, 1878), an English actor known for his ability to handle French-speaking roles.They did a tour of America that same year, apparently to lukewarm reviews.
