    • Rook: "Take him to the sheriff." Mister, on a trail, the trail boss is sheriff, judge, jury, and hangman, too.
      Paladin: Well, your job ought to be easy. If you can find the right man to hang.

    • Monk: Help me bury him.
      Paladin: Monk, in about an hour, Rook and that whole crew is going to be all over this place looking for you.
      Monk: Well, I can't help that. It's... sentimental, kind of. He's the onliest man I ever knew who's meaner than me, and you got to respect a man like that.

    • Paladin: Don't you ever bathe?
      Monk: I've been busy!

    • Rook: He done it? But you gave him your gun. What does that make you? What's that law word, a successory before something?
      Paladin: An accessory before the fact.

    • Paladin: (after he kills their boss) Wait a minute! You going to take him with you?
      Kew: We didn't have much use for him when he was alive. Dead, we ain't got no use for him.

    Trivia (2)

    • The episode title "The Naked Gun" refers to Rook's gimmick of carrying his gun hooked directed onto his belt, rather than sheathed in a holster. This allegedly makes it quicker to draw.

    • There is a continuity error that cannot be accounted for with stock footage. For his trip to Portland, Paladin is riding one of his familiar mounts--a dark horse with two rear white feet. We see him riding it as he comes up to Rook's camp, as he rides to Monk's rescue, and as they continue on away from Rook and his men. Monk rides a solid dark horse. After Monk clobbers Paladin and steals his gun, we see Paladin the next morning, riding in pursuit, still on his white-footed mount. However, when they cut to the scene where Paladin comes riding up to where Monk has tethered his horse, he is riding Monk's solid dark horse and his own white-footed horse is the one that is tethered. After Monk shoots the two men and he and Paladin leave the area, they are back on their own horses, and remain so for the remainder of the episode.
