  • Sgt. O'Rourke meets his match in the beautiful Lily O'Reilly. She has every man wrapped around her finger, and eventually buys O'Rourke's saloon right out from under him. The comedy ensues as he devises a scheme to get it back.moreless

    This was one of my favorite F-Troop episodes. I thought the writing was clever in this one. All the men in and around Ft. Courage went ga-ga over Lily O'Reilly except O'Rourke. In an odd plot twist, it turns out she's interested in him! It was nice to see the good sergeant have a love interest for a change. The scene with Cpl. Agarn and the women from the temperance society is priceless!moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • O'Reilly: Now, really, Sergeant O'Rourke. I thought you'd be pleased to see a daughter of the old sod doing well.
      O'Rourke: The only thing that would please me is to see you buried in that old sod.

    • Agarn: (about O'Reilly's saloon) One guy was standing 12 hours before he got in.
      O'Rourke: Agarn, nobody stands in line twelve hours to get into a saloon.
      Agarn: Don't tell me, Sarge. I was standing right behind him.

    • O'Reilly: Who's Widow Brown?
      O'Rourke: Well, she owns this place. Has sixteen children, no husband. He's dead. That's why we call her Widow Brown.
      O'Reilly: Good thinking.

    • O'Rourke: You mean to tell me Clem Witherspoon let me down and really rented her that place?
      Agarn: Now, don't blame Clem. O'Reilly's a beautiful woman. He held out as long as he could.
      O'Rourke: How long was that?
      Agarn: Til she walked through the door.

    • Agarn: (watering down whiskey) We're not doing nothing wrong. We're just putting the chaser in the bottom. We've eliminated the middleman!

  • NOTES (2)

    • This episode and season 2 episode "Yellow Bird" both have a common connection to the 1966 series Batman. Lee Meriwether (O'Reilly) played Catwoman in the feature film when original series Catwoman Julie Newmar (Yellow Bird) was unavailable.

    • The bar fight scenes include the brief snippet see in all of the first season opening titles.
