Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The play Cyrano de Bergerac, by Edmond Rostand, might have been appropriate to the plot, but in fact the play was first performed in Paris in 1897, by which time Paladin was surely long since retired.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Fifi: Poor Christian. He loves Roxanne and just can't tell her.
      Mimi: Imagine Cyrano courting a girl for another man, it's laughable.
      Paladin: Laughable? At the Paris premiere, the tears of the ladies in the boxes drenched the people sitting in the orchestra below.
      Mimi: Darling, please tell us, how does it end?
      Fifi: Be a dear, Paladin.
      Paladin: It ends, as all good plays should, early enough to leave some of the evening for talk and some for wine, and some for... one thing or another.
      Fifi: Why, Mr. Paladin!

    • Chris: My name is Chris Sorenson. And I'm direct.
      Paladin: So I noticed.
      Chris: I could use a man like you.
      Paladin: Well, I'm direct, too. What for?
      Chris: Well, you could teach me something...why, why the way you talk to the ladies! As if they were--
      Paladin: How do you talk to ladies?
      Chris: I don't. I can talk with my fists, and guns--but I can't use either of those on Maria.
      Paladin: Women do inhibit a man.

    • Bud: Maybe if you talked to that gal for Chris.
      Paladin: No. I tried that once in Dodge City, Bud, and almost had to marry the girl myself.

    • Paladin: Now is that the truth, Brewer, or would you like to call me a liar again?
