  • Trivia

    • Teaspoon has a daughter named Elizabeth Kelly, and her mother's name is Beatrice.

    • Sam points out Lucas Malone, a gambler that came to town, and says he's talkin' to Tompkins' wife.

      Tompkins' wife according to the episode Pride and Prejudice, she was presumed dead along with their daughter when Indians attacked them on the way to the town of Sweet Water(the program is auto correcting the town name). This is one of the biggest questions for Young Riders fans.

    • Teaspoon tells Amanda that the silver hair combs are made from a Silver Strike that he and Cyrus (Elizabeth's legal father) worked in the Santa Rita Mountains. The Santa Rita Mountains are about 40 miles southeast of Tucson, AZ where the show was filmed.

    • Goof: The picture of Teaspoon's old love is the same picture used to represent Jimmy's mother in episode 1x02 Gunfighter.

  • Quotes

    • (At the dance a young woman comes to talk to Buck).
      Girl: Excuse me.
      Buck: Sure
      Girl: Is it true you've scalped lots of people?
      Buck: Just one. (Looks over at Ike stuffing cake in his mouth) HIM.
      (She goes back to her friends and they giggle)

    • Cody: Ike still sore at me?
      Buck: He knows you didn't mean anything. He'll get over it.
      Cody: I wish he'd hurry. It's bad enough when somebody won't talk to you, with him it's downright spooky.

    • Amanda O'Connor: I know men. It's my business.
