Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The end credits identify actor Joe Bassett's character as "Matt Garson." However, at the 8:09 mark, Jared calls him "Russ."

    • The box of guns is seen at several points during the episode, and the size of it seems to change a little. However, at no point does it look large enough to contain fifty rifles, much less a thousand rounds of ammunition.

    • (Goof) Carlos Valdez is introduced with his arm in a sling. Later, the lawyer comments that Carlos got his arm broken during a "discussion" with Jared. After the confrontation near the end of the episode, Paladin calls down Carlos and Pedro. As they walk down, you can see Carlos, holding a gun in his good hand, reach up and adjust his hat with his "broken" arm.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jared: I'd have done business with you on your terms, but you started quibbling about morals.
      Paladin: Well, a man can have morals, even in business.

    • Pedro: You're not afraid that I will cheat you?
      Paladin: If that were my greatest fear, I would indeed be fearless.

    • Paladin: Put the gun down, Mr. Haskins. The law is your business, guns are mine.
      Haskins: If you're so good with a gun, you'll never have a better chance to prove it.
      Paladin: What good is proof to a dead lawyer? Put it down.
