General Muster: And remember--
Stooges: (in unison) Yes?
General Muster: The entire West depends on you!
Stooges: (in unison) No!
General Muster: Yes!
For some reason I always relish this bit, both in this short and in its original (or previous, anyway) occurrence in Dizzy Doctors. It is reused just before the end of the short, but I can't transcribe the second exchange because I can't make out the first part of Ted Lorch's first line (it sounds to me like "Tobela"--"Tobela work, my men!").
I note the use of a gag that will be heavily worked in Get Smart thirty years later: Buffalo Billious (Curly) is sniffing along the ground as Wild Bill Hiccup (Moe) and Just Plain Bill (Larry) follow. Suddenly he starts barking excitedly. "What is it, Buff, what is it?" says Wild Bill. "You're on my hand!" he replies. (In Get Smart the words will come from a fatally wounded man who whispers something to Agent 86, who is bent over him, before dying. "What did he say, Max?" "He asked me to get my knee off his chest.")
Notable appearance by Cy Shindell as a cattle rustler: "I just got woid trou da grapevine. . . ."
