Jim and Artie are charged with extraditing Count Draja back to his Bosnian homeland.

The Wanderer arrives at the town of Apache Pass, AZ, so that Jim can pick up Count Draja, who is being bound over for extradition to his home country of Bosnia.

Episode Quotes
Count Draja: Don't congratulate yourself, Mr. West. You will never get me to Bosnia in irons. I gave an arm for my country--I do not intend to let it have my head, too.

James: Well, Count, I'm sorry you had to meet my horse under such circumstances, but, heh, he's really educated.

Zack: Hey. What'd you do to get the law down on you?
Abel: You shoot somebody?
Count Draja: Worse. They caught me cheating at tiddlywinks.

Count Draja: I have so many scores to settle with you, Mr. West. Please don't cheat me by forcing you to shoot you through the head. Right away, that is.

During the shootout at the abandoned shack, the shots shoot from day...

and back to night again when the camera is indoors.
