  • Trivia

    • When Paladin reads the article about the Water Bugs, only the first paragraph relates to the Brent Brothers. The rest talks about "an organization of unquestioned integrity" and a judging service, which has nothing to do with the first paragraph.

  • Quotes

    • Alvah: And then Daddy joined up as in the War as a forager for the wrong side. Got hisself caught and you know what happened to him? He fell through a platform at a public meeting.
      Paladin: Platform with a trap door in the center of it.

    • (Three young women clad in sarongs enter the Carlton lobby and pounce on a startled--but agreeable--Paladin)
      Werner: You speak that stuff, same as them, Tahitian?
      Paladin: The language is French.
      Werner: Well, anyway, it's Greek to me. I use the sign language when I talk to them. Eh, name's Werner. Sol Werner, booking agent.
      Paladin: Mr. Werner.
      Werner: This is my act, won it off an Aussie.
      Paladin: (Chuckling) This is an act?

    • Paladin: Hey Girl.
      Hey Girl: Yes?
      Paladin: Will you pack my things, please?
      Werner: Uh, wait a minute. You look like a man who knows his way around town. I was gonna offer you a job of shilling tickets.
      Paladin: Well, thank you very much, Mr, uh, Werner, but I don't think it would be seemly in the eyes of, ah, three such impressionable young ladies. Excuse me.

    • Tyler: Mr. Paladin? My name is Tyler. Glad you got here, sir. Will you watch the boy until the stage comes tomorrow morning?
      Paladin: I might.
      Kesler: How much?
      Paladin: If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
      Doctor: There's six hundred dollars in the public fund.
      Paladin: We all agree that he's my prisoner?
      Tyler:We agree.
      Kesler: How about his brothers?
      Paladin: No changes, no additions. I watch this boy, and I take him in, and that's all.
      Tyler: That's fair enough.
      Paladin: One condition.
      Tyler: What's that?
      Paladin: Once I start, I don't stop, no matter who wants to call it off.
      Tyler: We wouldn't want it any other way, sir.
      Paladin: I hope I don't have occasion to remind you that you said that.
      Tyler: You won't, why should we want to call off anything as right as this is?
      Paladin: This is going to be a long night. Before it's over, the difference between right and wrong may not be quite as clear as it is now.

    • Paladin: I have looked into the face of evil many times. This is the first time I ever looked into the face of a man who would poison pure water.

    • Paladin: You ever try learning a trade, Bobby Joe?
      Bobby Joe: Water doctorin'. That's my trade!
      Paladin: Well, you've got your whole life ahead of you. It's not an impossible task.
      Bobby Joe: Save the sermons for the lambs, killer. I'm my own man.
      Paladin: Not anymore, you're not.

    • Paladin: Poison sown secret and wild. For beast or man, mother or child. A monstrous crime.

    • Paladin: Where's Alvah, Theo?
      Theo: He...he never meant nothin' he ever said to anybody.
      Paladin: He gonna run out on Bobby Joe?
      Theo: Tried to. I killed him. Don't tell the kid. Break his heart.
      Paladin: He'll never know. "And what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justice, and love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God.
