As Paladin


At the Hotel Carlton, Hey Boy brings Paladin his daily newspapers. As Paladin wishes the world would bring him something unique, a well-dressed Englishman, James Brunswick, comes in. He asks where Fleetown, Montana, is, and Paladin steps forward. They enjoy cigars and brandy and James explains that his older brother inherited the family estates and title. Their father invested in land in Montana and James inherited the property, the King's Arm Ranch. James only has a half-share and the rest is owned by a third cousin, Felicia Carson. He's never met her but James figures that he should take charge rather than putting the burden on a woman. Paladin warns that the trip will take three weeks because James will have to travel by horseback once the train drops him off 200 miles away. The gunfighter offers his card and his services and James accepts...

Episode Quotes
James Brunswick: But the, uh, gun, is that necessary?
Paladin: Not always necessary, but sometimes indispensable.

James Brunswick: You know, I was thinking about it this morning. About N.G. Smith and his little joke. I was being tested, wasn't I?
Paladin: I'm afraid so. See, there's a theory out here; a man that can be tricked is a fool. And there's two kinds of people they can't tolerate: cowards and fools. In a tight situation the one would run off and leave you, and the other would make fatal mistakes.

Episode Goofs
When Little Horse knocks James over, the Englishman gets to his feet, holding his hat.

The camera cuts to a slightly different angle and the hat is instantly back on James' head.

A few seconds later, the hat is off of James head.
