Episode Notes
Lee Marvin would win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1965 for his role in Cat Ballou.

Robert Horton does not appear in this episode. Ward Bond and Frank McGrath appear only briefly in the final scene. Terry Wilson carries almost the entire load for the good guys.



Episode Quotes
Morales: I hope we don't have no trouble. I get tired for killing peoples.

Oliver: Brother Roque, thee worries thyself unnecessarily. Thee forgets that we come as friends of the Indians.
Roque: I don't forget but who's told the Indians?

Oliver: (about Roque) He's a child of God, Brother Raleigh.
Raleigh: Maybe, but I wouldn't swear to it.

Morales: I am most happy hombre. Know what make me sad?
Hawks: What?
Morales: When I gotta kill somebody. Don't make me sad.

Hawks: Morales, I'm gonna get my hands on a gun. I'm a little faster than Raleigh was.
Morales: We gonna worry about that when the time come.

Morales: You take good care of my wagon, eh?
Roque: You ain't got it yet.

Morales: (to Hawks) Why you always worry about buryin' people? Get on the wagon!

Roque: (to Oliver) You go out there with your ideals, they'll die with you.

Roque: (to Hawks) I'm gonna give you a taste of what I've been chawin' on for 30 years. I'm gonna send you over the wall.



Episode Goofs
Nitpick: If Roque really served with Napoleon in Russia like he said in the dialogue he must have been much older than he looked. Napoleon's Russian campaign took place in 1812.

Nitpick: The wagon train must have really gone out of its way by taking passengers through Mescalero Apache country.



Analysis
Great episode once you get past Lee Marvin's borderline awful Spanish accent.
