    • (talking to young Caine) Master Kan: The world you live in is mysterious, exciting, unknown and mine is older, familiar, and calm. You will never know my world not I yours. Can you see with my eyes? Think with my brain?

    • Master Kan: Do not see yourself as the center of the universe; wise and good and beautiful. Seek rather wisdom, goodness and beauty that you may honor them everywhere.

    • Caine: If you plant rice, rice will grow. If you plant fear, fear will grow.

    • Master Kan: See the way of life as a stream. A man floats with the stream and his way is easy. But if he fights and tries to go upstream, he exhausts himself. Master Kan: To be one with the universe, each must find his true path and follow it.

    • Caine: When a man finds his way, heaven is gentle.

    • The Ute Indians referred to in this episode are an actual Native American tribe. In the era Kung Fu is set in, 1870's-1880's, the Ute were in the process of losing much of their land following the Black Hawk War (1865-1872). This would explain their belligerent attitude toward the characters in this episode. Utah's name is derived from Ute.
