Garret Dillahunt plays Francis Wolcott, a character who is always serious and never laughs or displays humor, can be seen trying to hide laughing. The scene is at or around 14 minutes into the episode, when E.B. delivers a message to Hearst while Hearst and Wolcott are eating at the hotel. He can be seen trying to cover his laugh at what E.B. says to Hearst.
While Francis Wolcott is the second character to be played by Garret Dillahunt, this is the first time he dies on camera. (Garret previously played Jack McCall in the first season. While history shows Jack is hung after his second trial for his murder of Wild Bill, this is not shown in the show.)
E.B.: [Speaking to a carpet bag full of money] And now, my dear lady, shall I part thou leather lips?
Swearengen: You smell like cat piss.
Commissioner Jarry: I have worked so hard and diligently for you Mr. Swearengen. That well may be the case.
(talking about Mose)
Joanie: He asked for work here.
Jane: As what?
Joanie: Watchman's what he suggested.
Jane: We're a vacant structure in case he ain't ****** noticed.
Joanie: I think he shrinks from leaving.
Jane: And the word for that is malingering.
Swearengen: Going to the wedding Davey?
Davey: Not hardly Mr. Swearengen. I wasn't invited.
Swearengen: I was, not that I'm going. Vicious rumors I was responsible for her first husband's death. ******* woman invites me to her wedding.
Davey: Guess there's no accounting for why people do things.
Swearengen: The congregation says Amen, Davey.
Sol: What can't you do?
Ellsworth: Any of it feels like. These ******* mittens in particular. Traditional, the ******* tailor says. Well not in my experience they ain't. If I was to imagine where they might be, amongst males about to marry, it ain't what comes to my mind.
Nuttall: Ellsworth and the widow Garret. What odds would you have made on that.
Swearengen: Every so often, there's a love match.
Hearst: (seeing Farnum) Looks like he stepped out of a specimen box.
George Hearst: Do you know prospecting Mr. Swearengen?
Al Swearengen: Nothing of it...
George Hearst: And the securing of the color once found...
Al Swearengen: Not one thing...
George Hearst: All I really care about.
Al Swearengen: Well I hope so... I'd hate to think you're this good at something that's only a hobby.
E.B.: Allow me a moment's silence Mr. Hearst, sir. I am having a digestive crisis and must focus on supressing its expression.
Jane: (uncomfortable with wearing a petticoat) Is that part of the tradition?
Joanie: Undergarments? Yes. Worn over privates, in layers. Or the bride and groom are doomed.
The music in the closing credits is "Stay a Little Longer" by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys.
