At a fort in Cheyenne territory, the soldiers have gathered to watch two boxers slug it out. Jim is there with General Titus Ord Baldwin, who offers the agent refreshments once the match is over. Baldwin congratulates the fighter, Hendricks, and Lt. Carter, who has been choosing the fighters. Baldwin introduces Jim to the two men as well as Colonel Rath. As the boxers go back to the ring, Baldwin informs the other men that the government is unhappy with Indian relations in the territory, and have sent Jim and Artie to find out why. The general says that his own sentiments are that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. However, Jim insist that Indians have made a major contribution to the country..Read the full recap
Aimee Baldwin: Mr. West, oh, it’s so seldom we get a chance to talk to someone from civilization. Oh, Daddy, I call upon you to yield this prisoner to me. Sir?
General Baldwin: I question your wisdom in taking prisoners, but I yield.
James: How many other fellas like Lt. Carter do you have dangling on a string?
Aimee Baldwin: Now that’s a military secret, Mr. West.
President Ulysses S. Grant: Don’t shoot, boys. The country’s got problems but this isn’t the way to solve them.
Oconee: West, that meeting you wanted. I’ll arrange for it.
Oconee: Call it my admiration for your style under pressure.
Aimee Baldwin: You hate me, don’t you?
Aimee Baldwin: No, you’re just saying that to be nice. Down deep, you really do hate me, don’t you?
James: If you say so.
James: Artie, do you think that Baldwin is calling the shots?
Artemus: I don’t know anyone else who has more to gain, do you? I mean, if you want to be President, what better way than kissing babies and killing Indians.
Artemus: Whatever you do, I don’t want you to think about three other men that General Grant sent to contact Strong Bear.
James: No, I won’t.
Artemus: I mean, just because he put them to the stake doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to kill you, too.
James: No, it doesn’t.
Artemus: You just forget them.
James: Yeah, I will.
Artemus: Don’t dwell on it.
James: No, Artie, I won’t.
Artemus: Just put those poor devils right out of your mind.
James: Artie! All right!
The glass of whiskey that Artie pours Grant is only a third full. However, when Grant picks it up, it contains a lot more liquid.
Before the commercial break, six Indians surround Aimee.
After the break, there are only four.
At the end of the second act, the frame in the upper left corner shows Jim being handcuffed where only two hands are shown (one left hand and one right hand). At the end of the next two acts the frame in the upper left corner shows Jim being handcuffed, but there are now four hands shown (three left hands and one right hand).
Oconee tells Jim to go to the caves at 8 that night. When Jim arrives, it is bright daylight.
Inside the cave, daylight is shining down.
And when Jim emerges sometime later and goes after Oconee, it is barely getting dark.
