Episode Quotes
Lia: Are you a God?
Flint: Are you a ghost?
Lia: Our runners brought word that a God had come to our land. I have never seen a God before. I came to see for myself.
Flint: I don't like to disappoint you but I'm no God. They call me Flint McCullough.

Lia: I am glad you are not Hernando Cortes. It would then have been necessary for our warriors to kill you.
Flint: He was killed in the 16th century. I would think they'd be a little late.

Anders: The old man sure talks a lot of mumbo jumbo, doesn't he?
Flint: Yeah, but he also believes it. We mustn't lose sight that they do things differently here.

Anders: You mean a man is poor if he has gold?
Montezuma: If he has gold only.

Flint: (to Lia) Don't you people have any happy legends?

Jerald: (to Flint about Mike) I want him to be free of me and I of him.

Flint: Will someone lead me down over the mountain?
Montezuma: No.
Flint: Then the mountain is your executioner?
Montezuma: If it must be.

Cultural References
Hernando Cortes, mentioned in the episode, was the name of a Spanish conquistador who conquered the original Aztec empire in the early 16th century.

Quetzecoatl was a legendary white God of the Aztecs. When Hernando Cortes first appeared on the scene many Aztecs assumed Cortes was him, returned to the tribe after an absence of many years. Cortes cleverly used this belief to infiltrate and later conquer the Aztecs.
