Episode Summary


Part 2 of the Lone Ranger origin reveals how the masked man finds his horse, Silver; and how he came to use silver bullets. Tonto is sent into town to "fetch the sheriff" for the first time. Skeptical at first, the local sheriff is later convinced the Lone Ranger is on the side of law and order. It seems an old family friend of the Ranger's, Jim Blane, is being blamed for the shooting of a local judge. The real killer, Butch Cavendish, has been wounded by Blaine, and has had his men kidnap the town doctor to heal the outlaw.

      • Goof: When Collins falls off the cliff, it is very obviously some kind of life size doll that falls and hits the ground, not a person.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Tonto: No one come. Only you.
        Sheriff Taylor: Now, look. You don't think I'd be silly enough to go with you alone, do you?
        Tonto: Me think so. You brave lawman. Want to solve mystery.
        Sheriff Taylor: Maybe you're right. (puffs out his chest) Maybe he's right, huh?

      • Lone Ranger: I'd like that horse more than anything in the world. But if he wants to go, he should be free.
        Tonto: Him a beauty. Like mountain with snow, silver white.
        Lone Ranger: Silver. That would be a name for him.

      • Lone Ranger: Silver bullets will serve as sort of a symbol. Tonto suggested the idea.
        Jim: Symbol? Of what?
        Lone Ranger: A symbol which means justice by law. I want it to become known to all who see the silver bullets that I live and fight only to see the eventually defeat and the proper punishment by law of every criminal in the West.
        Jim: By criminy, I think you got something there, and I'll mold you all the silver bullets you want, Ranger. But from what I know about this here country, there'll be an awful lot of silver shot up before you're through.
        Lone Ranger: I hope not, Jim.

      • Doc Drummond: (about the Lone Ranger) Who's the masked man?
        Sheriff Taylor: He's on the side of the law.

      • Sheriff Taylor: (hands his gun to Doc) Here you are, Doc. Watch these owlhoots close while I tie them up.
        Doc: Yeah, I hope they do make a move. Especially this one.
        Cavendish: Remember this, boys. I'm not in jail yet.
        Doc: Shut up. Working your mouth is making a move.
