    • TRIVIA (5)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Artie: It looks like a lot of nothing.
        Jim: All the better. No people, no danger.
        Artie: Whoops. Talked a little too soon. A crowd gathering out there. Two gophers and a jackrabbit.

      • President Grant: Mr. West, your entire method of procedure leads me to believe I must be the most unpopular leader since Genghis Khan.

      • President Grant: So what do you suggest?
        Jim: That you stay here while I ride ahead to Gibsonville to look over the situation
        President Grant: Aren't you afraid that I might be bitten by some enraged sand flea while you're gone?
        Jim: Uh, Mr. Gordon will stay here with you, sir. He's an expert marksman with small targets.

      • Doc Gavin: Chris Davidson died of an overdose of ignorance. Complicated by two busted neck vertebrae and an occluded windpipe.

      • Pernell: No need to be so brutal about it, was there? After all, I'm not a common thief.
        Jim: No? What's uncommon about you?

      • Artie: Why, Mr. President, I seem to recall General Lee paying a tribute to your patience when you took Petersburg after a 10-month long siege.
        President Grant: It was that event that exhausted my supply. I've had no patience since then.

      • President Grant: (as Artie shows him a model tank) You know, Mr. Gordon, it's men like you who'll eventually take all the fun out of war.

      • Jim: Whenever there's a broken neck, there's always--there's always music.
        Artie: You know, I once played the organ on a showboat. You know what made me give it up?
        Jim: No, what?
        Artie: People kept offering to break my neck.
