A crazed Confederate general is looking for a secret cache of Union gold hidden in a California town.

Episode Quotes
Varges: Why do you want to own a gun?
Mr. Vick: To shoot Indians!
Varges: They shoot back, you know.

Mr. Vick: What gun do you use?
Varges: I never use a gun. I don't trust them. I respect guns, but I don't trust them.

Brodie: You see, guts is a word that people use when they don't really know what they're feeling.

Varges: This is your place?
Alice Freeze: Sure is. Always wanted to be an undertaker, since I could remember. Went to school to learn, saved my pennies, and here I am.

Alice Freeze: Dying's s not so bad. It's better then a sharp stick in the eye. Don't worry: I'll take care of you real fine.
Brodie: Let's hope you don't have to, ma'am.
Alice Freeze: (to Varges) Oh, right. You can come back any time. Even if you're alive.

Julietta: Who are you people?
Brodie: Why, we're the Chamber of Commerce of Wildside.
