The plot in this episode is quite similar to that of the 1954 MGM musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this case it's 3 brides for 3 brothers.
Matt: I guess if nobody's mad enough to press charges, not much I can do.
Hannah: I have never seen so much romancin' goin' on in so short a time in my whole life.
Jed: Shep baby broke that himself. Don't tolerate nobody else. I wouldn't get on that critter's back for store-bought whiskey!
Hannah: Honey, you don't have to give me reasons. Girl, I will dance at your weddin'.
Jed: Spirit! I like that! You remind me of my first wife! She could spit fire and spin honey! I just may come a courtin' after all!
Jed: (looking at the girls) "Middlin', I'd have to say middlin'. You ladies step down."
Hannah: "You better do it. Crazy as he is, we don't wanta make him mad too."
Shep: "What he said was 'find some town women'. He didn't say how."
Hannah: "Ever since I took over, this place (the Long Branch) is been nothin' but trouble."
Shep: "Oh-oh. You move outta way, I think Ike's gonna start movin' folks around. When he moves 'em it's somethin' to see."
Hannah: "Being around Festus, I've had to learn to talk outta self defense."
Jed: "I can lead you to the well Luke, but you're supposed to have the common sense to stick your face in the well and drink."
Jed: "Go down to a town, boy. Get some town women."
Jed: "Grandkids, I wanna see grandkids swarming on this place. We come west to make the Hockett mark and I don't wanna be laid to rest wonderin' who's gonna carry on after."
