    • Jim: Sorry for staring but I'm not used to seeing something so lovely in a garden house. No, please forget that I said that.
      Henriette: Oh, really, I thought it was a rather pretty compliment.
      Jim: Yes, it was, but it's my last. You may quote me.

    • Jim: Artie!
      Artie: What?
      Jim: Who's that girl?
      Artie: (looking around enthusiastically) Where?
      Jim: No. The one at the morgue who came to claim your body.

    • Jim: I've come with a warrant for Brubaker, and to bring him back to Washington.
      Catherine: You? Alone?
      Jim: Well... Artie, you will help, won't you?
      Artie: Oh, sure. There'll be two of us.

    • Dansby: I'm curious. What's Grant's strategy? After we've hanged you, what's his next move?
      Jim: Well, there's always the Seventh Cavalry.
      Dansby: Yeah, the Seventh. Well, it'll be interesting to find out how good they really are. Personally, I think my Legion will give them a bloody nose.
      Jim: If you do that, I will personally notify your next of kin.

    • Reeves: What rabbit am I going to pull out of my hat this time?
      Jim: Oh, I don't know. You'll come up with something as soon as I'll think of it.

    Trivia (6)

    • Gadgets: burning powder to cut through a wooden floor, thermite lock-opener

    • Disguises: condemned prisoner Aaron Addison, man in fez

    • When Jim uses the powder in the attic, in the close shot he kneels and his right knee is in front of his left foot. The camera cuts to a middle shot and Jim's right knee is now in back of his left foot.

    • The episode opens with Jim with his new look and shorter hair. Later when Jim is running to escape the men chasing him, he walks from a garden gazebo through a secret passage leading into a nearby house. When he exits the corridor and enters the house, his hair is full-grown again. When Jim jumps out the window, it's back to the shorter look.

    • When Jim hides in the morgue drawer, he's able to open it from the inside. Although somehow he gets it open without moving his hands or feet. However, later the attendant is unable to get out of the drawer that Jim puts him in.
