Jim is on a stagecoach heading to the town of New Athens., Wyoming. Also aboard, is a salesman named Hogan, an older woman, and a man named Mike Trayne. Masked robbers ride up on the stagecoach, wound the guard, and order the stagecoach to a halt. They force the passengers out and, when one of them tries to rob the woman, Jim knocks him out and shoots another with his derringer. Trayne disposes of the third one with his cane. As Jim goes to help the guard, the surviving robbers ride away. Trayne congratulates Jim on his efforts and escorts the lady back into the coach, while Jim replaces the wounded guard...

Episode Quotes
Hogan: I am the sole distributor of lady's needle-ware. Got the market all sewn up. Joke. "All sewn up." You get it?
Mike Trayne: Sir, if you don't stop boring us, you may very soon find your mouth all sewn up.

Mike Trayne: Don't, uh, be frightened, ma'am. Under that mask, he's probably as worried as you are.

James: Sheriff, you'd better go easy on the starches. Nobody likes a fat hero.

Cassidy: West? West. That's not an Irish name.
James: I'm not Irish, sir.
Cassidy: Oh, you must be. Only an Irishman can fight that way.

Artemus: Cardinal rule of mine. Never travel next to a loaded gun less you're sure that it belongs to a very dear friend.

Episode Goofs
When "Artie" supposedly jumps the barricade, it's clear that a much younger, thinner stuntman is riding the horse.

When Cassidy shoots the shop window and hits the clock. There's initially nothing reflected in the glass...

But in the next shot, the reflection of a crew member can be seen, reflected twice because of the cracking.
