Episode Quotes
Wooster: (about Mary Ellen) She's a menace, that's what she is. Ain't a man or a woman on this wagon train wouldn't like to skin her alive.

Jenkins: (about Mary Ellen) The only thing she understands is a beatin'.
Flint: A spankin's one thing, a beatin's something else. Now get in your wagon.

Adams: (to Jenkins) You don't have to shackle a child to make her mind.

Adams: Jenkins, you better get away from me before I kick your belt around your ears.

Mayhew: I've gotta do something.
Adams: Mr. Mayhew, you ever think about prayin'?
