  • Paladin finds himself in a situation where neither the town, the sheriff, or the girl are quite what they seem.

  • Quotes (4)

    • Paladin: I came into this town this morning. I had a thousand dollars, a horse, and a gun. I intend to leave Blue Bell the same way.

    • Paladin: (after being asked about the symbol on his holster) It's the symbol of a chess knight, an attack piece. The most versatile on the board. It can move eight different ways, over barriers, and always unexpected.

    • Paladin: Well, that's a very nice sewing box you have. Susan: Oh, I keep it to remind me of home. My mother gave it to me when I left Philedelphia. Paladin: And you came west as a schoolteacher. Susan: Yeah. Ain't that a laugh. Paladin: "Isn't it" or "Is it not"; you know correct English, why don't you use it? Susan: Well, grammar's the same as pride. You can have both of them beat out of ya. (Confidentially) The story goes there was a fellow in Prescott. Men. Paladin: Treacherous breed.

    • Paladin: You know, there's an old saying: "Trust no one with your life that you cannot trust with your virtue." Susan: "That you could not trust with your virtue as well". Montaigne's essay, written in 1572. You ain't the only one around here who's read a book.

    Trivia (1)

    • (Nitpick) As Paladin confronts the "surrendering" sheriff, we see him slip his derringer from under his gun belt. His hands are in front of him. However, when he fires the gun a moment later, the close-up shows him bringing up his hand from behind his holster.
