Guy Madison, playing a heavy in this episode, had just finished a run as a hero playing the title role in The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickock.
The casting director for this episode was really alert as he/she cast three tall actors to play the Dawsons. You don't always see that on television.
Adams: There's more saddle sores than dollars in a job like mine.
Gratton: (to Adams) You know how it is with old soldiers. We just do the best we can.
Paul: You call me sis?
Sarah: Well I wasn't trying to scare the crows.
Sarah: (to Gratton) You're an odd one. I guess we just never had your kind back in Connecticut.
Flint: I can't believe that anyone that's as smart as the Major could let the same thing happen to him twice.
Adams: Why don't you just shut up?
John: How long will you be gone?
Adams: Just as long as it takes me to bring your money back--or Riley Gratton's hide.
Adams: I'll give you just one hour, Riley Gratton, and the Lord have mercy on you if you try to pull anything on me again.
Paul: If you were half a man you'd roll over and let me kick you on the healthy side.
Gratton: I know, Paul. I'm not the kind you can depend on.
Former TV Western hero Guy Madison appears in a change of pace role as a gambler/con man in this episode and pulls it off pretty well. The ending falls a little flat but this one is entertaining enough. James Westerfield does well is a supporting role and Karen Steele is luscious as the Damsel of the Week.
