Judge: Kid, you've got an evil mind.

Beau: Surely you're not suggesting I go along with you as your prisoner.

Episode References
Marshal Dan Troup from the ABC/Warner Brothers Western Lawman is mentioned in the dialogue of this episode.

Probably the best Roger Moore solo effort of the series and it's helped along by nice turns from veteran character actors John Carradine, Lee Van Cleef, and Mike Road. Plus there's the luscious Sherry Jackson as the damsel of the week.
