Joe Carder ranks as one of the more repulsive characters in series history.



Episode Quotes
Hale: When a man's in trouble joining him only compounds the misery.

Joe: You say you're a wagon scout but you could be anybody.
Flint: That's right but this isn't the place to stand around and argue about it.

Joe: Fifteen unmarked graves. Waste of time, that's what it was.
Flint: You ever heard of Christian duty?
Joe: I sure have, mister. Never got much out of it.

Flint: (to Joe) You're not back home. This is Comanche country. If you wanna stay alive tonight, stay awake.

Flint: Everyman's somebody, George. All he has to do is find himself. Why don't you give it a try?

George: McCullough isn't gonna sit by and watch us go, Joe.
Joe: There's two of us. When I make my move, you back me up.

Flint: (about Joe) You never needed him, George. Never. He needed you.



Episode References
George Carder states in the dialogue that he doesn't know who Daniel Boone is but in an irony of ironies his portrayer (Albert Salmi) would go onto portray the legendary frontiersman's sidekick in the first season of Daniel Boone.



Analysis
Besides being a great comedian, Don Rickles was also a very good dramatic actor as proven by this episode.
