Episode Quotes
Artemus: Come out--I won't hurt you.
Voltaire: (stepping out of hiding) No. I hurt you!

Voltaire: Hit him again?
Dr. Miguelito Loveless: No no. Not yet, Voltaire, you know better than to kill a man when he's not looking.

James: Are you sure, Sir, that this whole thing is legal?
Governor Lewis: Legal? Of course it's legal. The complete legality of any move is the first thing that a clever rascal always checks.

John Crane: Bailey, I thought I told you to move that freight onto the main track at 6 after.
Bailey: Well, that's what I was fixing to do.
John Crane: You're late.
Bailey: Oh, the little hand ain't got down to the six yet.
John Crane: Bailey, it's the big hand that tells the minutes.
Bailey: Oh, yeah. I forgot.

(to Jim)
Priscilla Ames: You know, for a man who's always getting blown up, you have very soft skin.

Bessie: And all I try to be is a little bit good. And where does it get me? Blown up with a lousy Italian tenor.
Artemus: Baritone.
Bessie: Oh, stop that sweet talk.
