Note the humor/prescience in the Folgers woman (Harriet) offering Josh coffee (and then cherry pie). But Charlie hates cherry pie.
Charlie to Josh: you've got a reputation for succeeding at your work.
Josh to Charlie: I never go to weddings; they make me cry.
Later, Charlie to Josh: to you marriage is a crime.
And, at the end, Harriet to Josh: I've got a pot of coffee on.
Josh loses his gun to the Mexicans, gets it back, but then loses it to Mandeville's people. At episode end, Josh is gunless, with no good prospect of getting it back.
There is a scene where a shadow of Josh's gun on a tent wall tips off Mandeville. But Josh is outside the tent and the light is inside.
In the story, Josh does a favor for an old friend Sam Gladstone, who needs a prisoner escorted and who gives him a warning about the prisoner via a trip to Boot Hill (hence the show title; don't be the fourth headstone. The prisoner is a woman played by Mona Freeman)
The time stamp on the show is around 1877 and Josh reveals his family was once in Dallas.
Although told he was a fool by the Freeman character, Josh did heed the warnings. There is an appearance of Josh's second gun, which will be featured in some later episodes. Josh says to the Freeman character: you took the wrong gun.
There is an allusion to a town called Black Wells from where an escape can be made.
Favor and Yates racing against one another with different heards. Weed (Warren Oates) as ramrod for Yates and Wishbone with Yates. Quince with Favor.
A line of Wishbone: some friend you turned out to be Mr. Yates.
A line of Weed to Yates: quit this race.
Yates telegraphs from Diablo.
A rainstorm from Harrison to Saragossa saves Yates, or did it?
