      • Capt. Parmenter: Sounds like Mr. Urp left.
        O'Rourke: Yeah, he suddenly remembered he had a big deal in Tombstone.
        Agarn: Or a tombstone in Big Deal.
        Capt. Parmenter: (laughs) That's very humorous!

      • Wild Eagle: Hekawi have ancient saying: Beaver cannot fly when horde of young buffalo point at full of moon.
        O'Rourke: Yeah, well, I got a better one. When great white pigeon fall from sky, no more wampum grow on tree.
        Wild Eagle: You right.

      • Agarn: Poor Captain Parmenter. And he had everything to live for.
        O'Rourke: Yeah. We'll never find another pigeon like him if we hatched one ourselves.

      • Agarn: (after seeing Urp's shooting demonstration) I'm going back to the fort. I can't stand the sight of blood.
        O'Rourke: Wait a minute. What blood?
        Agarn: It could be mine!

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Character Sam Urp's name is a homonym for the Earp brothers -- Wyatt, Morgan and Virgil -- who, along with Doc Holliday, participated in the infamous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. They make a second allusion to the Earps when they mention Tombstone at the end of the episode.
