Episode Quotes
Cappy: That's a ship's bell from the good ship Shenandoah.
Adams: I don't care if it's Big Ben from London Tower, you ring that thing again tonight and, by golly, I'm gonna melt it down to metal and make an axe out of it and use it on you.

Adams: (to Hawks) Four bells? Now who's usin' seafarin' talk?

Adams: The sooner we get to Kingston, the sooner I can start trackin' down that old barnicle.

Episode Goofs
Nitpick: The Native Americans take Cappy's spyglass when they accost him but at the end of the episode he has another one. I guess the viewer has to assume that he purchased a second one somewhere.
