Episode Quotes
Paladin: Well now, hold it! Hold it! I don't care for horse thieves, but I like lynchings even less.

Sidney Carter: Paladin, I always pay a man for his trouble.
Paladin: Some things are not for sale. One of them is my testimony.

Paladin: For saving an innocent man's life, there's no charge. For what it means to your son, there's no charge. For what it's worth to you, my fee is five thousand dollars.
