    • Colton: The next death that I have a hand in -- the next killing, if ever I have to kill again, I want it personal. I want to be able to choose. If some boy has to die at my hands, I don't want it sanctioned by an Act of Congress, or my regrets ended by an armistice.

    Notes (1)

    • There is a relationship between the post Civil War lone ranger and the Anglo-Caribbean. Both are loners, and both of them are trying to carve out an identity for themselves in a country where they are not part of the mainstream. The episodes in this series does not really unfurl the layers of loneliness that both communities would experience, but as usual, Serling has great ideas which more often than not do become realised as quality stories.
