    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • (Goof) As Paladin prepares to leave the hotel and head for home, he is carrying his saddlebags, which are clearly full. He steps out the door, and suddenly both saddlebags are completely flat.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (Hey Boy has been reading over Paladin's shoulder)
        Paladin: Hey Boy, although I consider curiosity to be one of the permanent and certain virtues of a vigorous mind, there are those that consider curiosity after the affairs of another as being motivated by envy or an evil mind.

      • Paladin: Now I understand that Moritta's a cold-blooded killer. I know that he killed your son in a gunfight that was no contest. I came here to take him for you, but I bury the dead, Mr. Sebrey.

      • Haskell: You going after him alone? (Paladin nods) You owe that to Sebrey?
        Paladin: I owe it to him. I owe it to myself.

    • NOTES (2)

      • With this episode, the opening credits are changed. The episode now begins with a long shot of Paladin, who turns toward the camera, draws, and aims his revolver. He then holsters his revolver and the camera freezes on the knight's head logo on his holster.

      • Apparently Johnny Western did some experimenting with the closing theme. At the end of this episode, his voice comes booming out as though he were singing in an echo chamber. His voice is also pitched a little deeper, with a fuller, more powerful tone.
