Episode Quotes
Harpe: I've known a lot of women, Kitty, but never one like you.
Kitty: I hope you mean that as a compliment.

Brisbane: What evil reason did you have for paying my dues?
Harpe: You let me buy you a drink and I'll explain.

Brisbane: Just maybe you've got me figured wrong.
Harpe: I don't think so but if I do, you better figure I'm not a coward. I'll kill for what I want.

Hale: (about Brisbane) He's an agnostic.
Wooster: What's that? Sounds like a rotten egg or something.

Kitty: What kind of man are you?
Brisbane: Oh, I'm just a hired hand--like you. (gets slapped by Kitty) I'd sure hate to put a gun in your hands.

Brisbane: Horse stealing is a worse offense than wife beating. How's that for justice?

Martha: Myles Brisbane, if I didn't know you better I'd think you were raised in the gutters of Boston.

Brisbane: (about Kitty) Have you any idea what this beautiful lady means to me?
Martha: No, and I'm not dying to find out.

Wooster: One gunshot don't mean nothin'.
Brisbane: One at Concord was heard around the world.
Wooster: Must have been an awful big gun.

Brisbane: You kill one man, you get hung. Another, you get a medal.



Analysis
Good episode with Bradford Dillman giving a hammy (but very effective) performance as an alcoholic former attorney. Main flaw is an out-of-left field ending.
