Episode Quotes
Flint: You'll recognize me. I'll have 110 wagons behind me.
Hale: You'd better. I intend to count.

Flint: Where'd you come from?
Bridger: Where I always come from--out yonder.

Flint: 50% of the people on this train are women and children.
Jameson: In a state of war all civilians are subject to the call of duty.

Flint: Am I under arrest?
Jameson: If necessary, you will be.

Hawks: This is like being invited to your own massacre.

Flint: You captured this wagon train. Don't ask me to help you run it.
Jameson: I won't need your help.
Flint: You might need this much. I wouldn't turn my back on a single wagon.

Wooster: (to Hawks) You're gonna be a mean old man someday. (to Flint) Now there's a living example of a mean ex-sergeant.

Wooster: I ain't been without my gun since I was born. I feel naked.
