Continuity mistake: When Mitch shows Ed and Phil the coffee grinder, Ed has a smear of shaving cream on one side of his face. When Ed jumps on his horse during the cattle stampede and says 'I'm gonna die, I'm gonna die.' there is shaving cream on both sides of his face.
Mitch Robbins: Hey you know, the first time I tried to talk to you, you embarrassed me. So I teased you a little bit which maybe I shouldn't have done, so I'm sorry. And now you're sitting over there playing with your knife, trying to frighten me - which you're doing a good job. But if you're gonna kill me, get on with it; if not, shut the hell up - I'm on vacation.
Trivia: Jack Palance won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Curly, even though he only has 12 minutes of screen time.

Answer: Mitch says "nice catch, it was like Mays in the ‘54 World Series." To which they reply "Vic Wertz." Wertz was the Cleveland Indians player that hit the ball into the outfield that New York Giants player Willie Mays spectacularly caught.
