  • Heyes and Curry escort a woman who claims that her husband is hiding out with the Devil's Hole gang, even though he has been cleared of any criminal exploits. The good citizenship theme gets a great work out here as our heroes convince a outlaw chieftainmoreless

    Clara Phillips (Diane Hyland) persaudes our heroes to take her to the Devil's Hole so that she can tell her husband whose hiding out there that he has been cleared of all criminal wrongdoing. Heyes and Curry reunite with some of their old companions, among them Big Jim Santana (Fernando Lamas) who runs the gang now and has a great idea for one last robbery. When Clara reaches the Devil's Hole, she shoots on sight one of Big Jim's men Hamilton (spaghetti western actor Brett Halsey of "Roy Colt & Winchester Jack") and accuses him of corrupting her 17-year old daughter. Big Jim is considerably upset by Clara's wounding Hamilton and demands the truth from both parties. Learning the truth turns out to be a difficult as neither person wants to come clean. When Big Jim isn't trying to get to the truth (he would never hire somebody for his big raid if he didn't thoroughly trust them)he grilles Heyes about the notion of going straight. Big Jim spent seven years in prison and doesn't plan to go back. Now, he has been collecting a gang to attack a major money sorting place in Denver, the biggest job that he has ever staged. The search for the truth and the turnaround that Big Jim experiences makes this one of the best "Alias Smith and Jones" episodes. The Clara Phillips character is unusually headstrong.moreless

    • Heyes: I figure they'll treat me kind of cautious; I don't blame them. You shouldn't worry over it too much; they never shoot ladies.
      Mrs. Phillips: You mean outlaws do have a code of honor?
      Heyes: No, they have a shortage of ladies.

      Heyes: You're not bad with words yourself.
      Mrs. Phillips: You don't believe me?
      Heyes: I didn't say that. I just haven't had time to stop believing the first story you told me.

      Big Jim: One of them is lying.
      Heyes: Oh, at least one.

      Mrs. Phillips: Did prison change your regard for the law?
      Big Jim: It changed my regard for prison.

      Big Jim: What's a woman for, if not to influence a man?

      Heyes: They're all good men. Well, they're men anyway.

      Kyle: That's the dirtiest trick I've ever heard of…but I like it.
