    • The writing on Vash's gun reads: 45 LONG COLT AGL ARMS FACTORY

  • Quotes

    • (Wolfwood and Milly are walking. Milly is holding a bag of groceries and Wolfwood thanks Milly for bailing him out.)
      Milly: I guess I'm good at chess. My big brother used to make me play chess with him all the time.
      Wolfwood: A big brother huh? Gee, that must be nice. Any other siblings?
      Milly: (holds out both her arms, dropping all her groceries) No, but there's ten brothers and sisters.
      (Wolfwood looks down at the mess.)
      Wolfwood: Uh huh. You're the youngest one aren't you?
      Milly: Yeah. Well, how did you know that?
      Wolfwood: Sometimes the answers just crash down from heaven.

    • (Milly and Wolfwood walk through town locking arms. Milly appears to be noticeably pregnant.)
      Woman: Young lady, you're enormous. Are you expecting sextuplets?
      (Milly turns and giggles nervously.)
      Milly: Isn't it lovely out today, honey?
      (Wolfwood groans.)
      Wolfwood: Excruciatingly pleasant, honey.
      Moore: (under Milly's coat) I'm really sorry about all this.
      Wolfwood: It's all right. Just stay out of sight.
      (Some townsfolk converse about not finding the girl.)
      Wolfwood: (thinking) How did this happen? (picks up a cigarette with his mouth) No matter what I do I always seem to get in trouble with his girl! (Milly grabs the cigarette from Wolfwood's mouth.) Hey!
      Milly: Secondhand smoke is bad for the baby, darling.
      Wolfwood: Haha, oh yeah, gee, sorry about that, HONEY.

    • Wolfwood: I'll be darned. All along I thought there had to be a sacrifice, but there was another answer after all, Vash the Stampede.
