    • Preacher: (to Jimmy) If I may offer a few words of in the Lord, and keep your back from the door.

      This line obviously refers to the way James Butler Hickok died in real life, shot in the back while playing cards in a saloon in Deadwood. Legend says that Hickok generally insisted upon a seat facing the door, but on this occasion no such seat was available, so he sat with his back to the door, which led to his murder.
