      • Agarn: You're pointing that gun at my heart!
        O'Rourke: Oh, he's just trying to scare us.
        Agarn: And what a swell job he's doing!

      • O'Rourke: If they get that paybox, it'll be over our dead bodies.
        Agarn: "Our" dead bodies?
        O'Rourke: Yeah, we may have to shoot it out with them, Agarn.
        Agarn: You shoot it out with them, Sarge. I'd rather reach for the sky than be there.

      • O'Rourke: Never mind, Agarn. I guess it's true what the Apaches have been saying behind his back.
        Wild Eagle: What Apaches say behind my back?
        O'Rourke: Oh, nothing except that you're a cheap, miserly skinflint who wouldn't give his mother a piece of dried buffalo.
        Wild Eagle: Apaches say Wild Eagle a cheap, miserly skinflint who wouldn't loan his mother a piece of dried buffalo?!?
        Agarn: That's right.
        Wild Eagle: (under his breath to Crazy Cat) Never knew Apaches such good judge of character.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • When Agarn sarcastically asks the grumpy Mr. McGuire if he would play Santa, McGuire replies, "Bah, humbug," Ebenezer Scrooge's standard response from Charles Dickens' novel, A Christmas Carol. Despite his grumpy on-screen demeanor, actor Charles Lane never played Scrooge in any screen version of the story.

      • The title is a common phrase from western movies, used by robbers as a colorful alternative to "Hold up your hands."
