    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • (While looking for disguised troopers, Agarn suspects an Indian squaw.)
        Agarn: Is that you Duffy?
        Wild Turkey: My name Wild Turkey.
        Agarn: See you at Thanksgiving.

      • Capt. Parmenter: (reading note stuck to the fake tree trunk Major Royce was wearing) Old Hekawi saying: You never can fool Indian with sap in tree.

      • Wild Eagle: Our tribe very brave warriors. Except for one thing.
        O'Rourke: What's that?
        Wild Eagle: We faint a lot.

      • Wild Eagle: If you have trouble, must remember wise, old Indian saying. "Bullfrog who sits on lily pad never do much croaking."
        Agarn: What's so wise about that?
        Wild Eagle: You know wiser saying?

      • Agarn: Can't you just see that someday a kid will turn to his father and say, "Daddy, what did you do in the Indian war?" And the father'll say, "I was a tree stump in F Troop."

      • Major Royce: I was once trapped in the Khyber Pass with a squadron of the 10th Ghurka Rifles. We managed to live for a whole week on nothing but curried cartridge belts. Madras style, of course.
        O'Rourke: I must say, sir, that our cartridge belts are not that tasty.

      • O'Rourke: With the captain's permission, I'd like to take out a search party. Something may have happened to him.
        Agarn: It'd be a shame if the Indians got him before he showed us how to get the Indians.

      • Wrangler Jane: But it's from Washington -- the War Department. Office of the Chief of Staff. Stamped Official, Urgent and Top Secret.
        Capt. Parmenter: Sounds like it might be important.

      • O'Rourke: Business in the saloon alone was up 33%.
        Agarn: Are the men drinking that much more whiskey?
        O'Rourke: No, they're drinking that much more water.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The visiting British major's name is Bently Royce, a mixture of Bentley Motors and Rolls-Royce, two of the most prestigous British manufacturers of motor cars. Bentley was Rolls-Royce's most serious competitor in the UK luxury car market, so Rolls bought out Bentley in 1931 -- when Bentley had financial problems -- in order to control its competition.
