FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This episode begins in medias res, with Agarn being marched to the firing squad and most of the story being told in flashback.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • The Balladeer:
      Today they shoot Agarn, wipe that tear from your eye
      soon Agarn will head for that big fort in the sky.

    • The Balladeer:
      They say he has murdered his good buddy and friend
      Today they shoot Agarn, oh it looks like the end.

    • The Balladeer:
      They didn't shoot Agarn, oh that wasn't his fate
      'cause no one in F Troop ever learned to shoot straight.

    • The Balladeer:
      Things happen at F Troop that you wouldn't believe
      so, farewell to Fort Courage, now I think I should leave.

    • Agarn: Chief, what did you shoot at us for?
      Wild Eagle: We think you buffalo.
      Agarn: Oh, come on, Chief! Do I look like a buffalo? Buffalo are stupid and shaggy-haired and beady-eyed.
      Wild Eagle: You keep talking, you end up on dinner table.

    • Agarn: (waking up) You know, Captain, there's something about sleeping under the stars with the sky for your blanket, the earth for your mattress that makes you ... ache and pain all over!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Ivan Bell (Duddleson) is uncredited.

    • John Mitchum is credited later in the end credits as singing "The Day They Shot Agarn." Mitchum previously appeared during the first season as recurring character Trooper Hoffenmueller. Additionally, the music for the song was written by series producer Herm Saunders with lyrics by scriptwriters Austin and Irma Kalish.
