Episode Quotes
Opening Narration
Narrator: June 25th, 1964 - or, if you prefer, June 25th, 1876. The cast of characters in order of their appearance: a patrol of General Custer's cavalry and a patrol of National Guardsmen on a maneuver. Past and present are about to collide head-on, as they are wont to do in a very special bivouac area known as the Twilight Zone.

Closing Narration
Narrator: Sergeant William Connors, Trooper Michael McCluskey, and Trooper Richard Langsford, who on a hot afternoon in June made a charge over a hill - and never returned. Look for this one under 'P' for phantom, in a historical ledger located in a reading room known as the Twilight Zone.



Episode Goofs
The men constantly say that the Battle of Little Big Horn was 80 years ago. Based on the dates given, it was in fact 88 years ago. While very few people would keep saying "88 years," it doesn't make sense that they round down 8 years, rather than round up 2 and say it was 90 years ago.
