Episode Quotes
Adams: I sure wish we was outta this valley. I don't like 'em lookin' down our throats.
Flint: Well, we can't outrun 'em. We gotta meet 'em sooner or later.

Adams: I sure hope the Sioux are huntin' four-legged meat.

Ortega: (to Thornton) Why you call me boy? My name is Juan.

Booley: You ever seen me before, kid?
Ortega: I saw you an hour ago. You were looking into the wagon at your friend.

Adams: There's something goin' on around here that makes my skin crawl. I don't know what it is but I don't like it.

Ortega: (to Jarvis) I want you to be afraid when you die. I've waited too long for this moment.
