Grey is out with a surveyor, Jim, who is checking the course of a new canal. As they go over the map of the area, a sniper fires from the woods and kills Jim. He shoots again, narrowly missing Grey, and Grey goes after the killer. The man yells at him to get off the land and vows that they'll never build the canal...Read the full recap
Grey: I'll get him.
Joshua: I wouldn't worry about it, Captain. If they don't show up, I'll take charge of 'em for you.
Grey: You'll take charge?
Joshua: Well, who do you think built the Erie Canal?
Grey: Oh, for crying out... who did?
Joshua: Oh, it was a man named Skinner, I think.
Grey: That's what I thought.
Pickalong: Stopped in the saloon, heard some workmen came but they were scared away.
Grey: Yeah, I heard that. I don't believe it.
Joshua: In the future I'll take care of them like they were my own lads.
Grey: You mean they won't be? You take credit for everything else in the Mississippi Valley.
Joshua: I'll let you know that when I see 'em.
Joshua: I'll bet she'll learn rather quickly if you were teaching her.
Grey: Oh, don't be ridiculous, Joshua. She's a married woman.
Joshua: Eh, a married woman neglected by her husband. That's trouble.
Grey: Yeah, well in that case, you better watch out. You know how irresistible you are to women.
Tracy Paxton: The trouble with being a woman, Captain, is that we're not permitted to be useful. Just decorative.
Grey: What's the trouble between you and your husband?
Tracy Paxton: I'm married to a dedicated man, Captain. His job comes first and I come second. Well maybe it's time that he came second with me.
Grey: If your husband neglects you, he's a fool. But don't ask me to be a bigger fool.
