As Paladin


Paladin is passing through a town and goes to the general store to buy supplies. The owner, Jason Coldwell, is collecting money from the Weavers. He jokingly offers the father, Daniel, some soap and Daniel walks off with his son Joel. Jason dismisses them as ignorant fools and then comes over to see what he can do for Paladin. Paladin buys his breakfast and some shells, and says that he had some business up north...

Episode Quotes
Jason Coldwell: I wonder if I could interest you in a new product that came in just recently. It's called "soap."
Daniel Weaver: You trying to make me look the fool, Mr. Coldwell?
Jason Coldwell: Why, no, Mr. Weaver. I just thought you might find a use for it.

Mollie Stanton: I can't pay you.
Paladin: Well, I'll call this a civic duty.. As I take the time to vote or sit on a jury.

Coley: Well, now. And who are you?
Paladin: My name's Paladin. What do they call you when they're being polite?

Paladin: Men like Breck--they always run in packs. You break a piece of that pack and pure yellow shows through.

Paladin: All right, Breck. Start. What are you waiting for? You got a gun in that holster. You have two good hands, you're standing on your own two feet, what more do you want? Want an edge? Here. That better? (holds his hand away from his gun)

Episode Goofs
