Did You Know?

Shapley Howell:You can't take me back. We're in Canada - out of your jurisdiction the minute we crossed the border.
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson:Well now, Mr. Howell, I don't know about that. The American-Canadian border is a little hard to find in the wilderness. I'd say we're still on the American side.
Shapley Howell:Ridiculous!
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson:Alright, let's get packed. First night out, we'll have bear steaks for everybody, courtesy of Bat Masterson. And when we run out of those, I'll kill you some fish.
