- Good Shepherd - The Parson, one of Crockett's Tennessee volunteers.
- Jerkass - Travis in the John Wayne film.

- Oh Crap - No one ever says so out loud but, you can see it on the faces of the defenders fairly often.
- Only a Flesh Wound - Smitty tries to convince everyone (including a cute little lady that's very concerned for him) that the wound he has is nothing serious. Then Beekeeper goes and pours Whisky on it!
- Shrouded in Myth - Davy Crockett has a BIG reputation.
- Villain Song - The Mexican army plays Degüello, which translates to 'Slit throat'
