Matt: Well I'm not much of a bettin' man. But if I was, I'd sure bet on something worthwhile.
Arlene: Save, ha ha ha. Drunks, squaslie and a cloud of hoardes could save this town better than those ridge-runners in there. You think I was raised in a shoe box or something.
Arlene: Yeah, them in there, they're smart. You, you had an original idea it'd blow your head off.
Oregon: My old man always said 'half the world was made by talking loud'.
Oregon: If that's a blanket then hogs wear scarves.
Note at the end of the episode: Portions of this picture were filmed in the Coronado National Forest, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
An interesting note - Most Gunsmoke fans know that Ken Curtis was actually a great singer - he replaced Frank Sinatra on Tommy Dorsey's Big Band. That was why he went to Hollywood. But on this episode - another actor - Med Flory
(Sheriff Van Berkle) was an accomplished Jazz Saxophonist and leader of a well respected Jazz group - "Super Sax" -
which took classic Jazz Solo transcriptions of Jazz Legends
such as Charlie Parker, etc and voiced them for an entire
Saxophone section - very intricate Jazz Recordings.
