Episode Quotes
Palmer: (to Nancy) Don't worry about me. I can always do what I got to do. Just don't ask me to smile while I'm doin' it.

Nancy: We should have met at a grand ball at my father's house. Perhaps I would have given you every dance.
Palmer: That's how it should have been.

Palmer: Folks might think I married a kind woman but I know better. I married a smart one.

Nancy: The weak forgive. The strong only pretend that they do. They pretend and they take.

Sheriff: I'd like you to ride a piece with us, McCullough, if you can spare the time.
Flint: Always time for the law.

Sheriff: (to Flint): In these parts it's healthy for a scout to have friends. You're no exception.

Nancy: It's strange, Dan. I can't see the faces of the people who hurt me only the faces of the people I hurt.

Episode Goofs
Nitpick: In the scene in the wagon with the children, it's pretty obvious that Nancy Palmer is holding a dummy instead of a real baby.
