Just happened to be in the neighborhood, so I'll play. I have no idea what the clues mean, but I know that quote. It's Sheriff Ned Briggs to his nefarious partners after all the ponies gallop away in "The Night of the Returning Dead."

1. In Stephen King's "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption," one of the posters the prisoner Andy has on his cell wall over the years (as part of his escape plan) is of Hazel Court, alias Mrs. Jackson.

2. Rihanna is a pop star from Barbados, and thus does a much more convincing Barbadian accent than Jeremiah... in that she actually has one.

So... putting up a quote, or will it go to whoever replies next?

You've got to be kidding. I can think of random quotations, but I can't possibly dream up clues so obscure.

Well, here goes nothing.

Season 1:

"Did you hear something?"

Clues are more difficult to come up with than the quotes, that's for certain. Making them obscure enough so that they don't give the episode and quote away, but not TOO obscure. CL is the master of obscurity.

So at the moment I have no idea about your clue, ccb.

Welcome back, by the way!

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.

I'm thinking it might be Jim in "The Night of the Murderous Spring"?

Thank you, niecie. Merely beginner's luck.

It's not "The Murderous Spring." Methinks another ridiculous clue may be warranted.

Jim sang, "Light My Fire." Jim did.

Wild, wild guess: Artie to Jim in Inferno

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?

Come to think of it, your clues sound something like my anagrams!

The only thing Magoo makes me think of is Mr Magoo aka Jim Backus. But that's the wrong season. Must... think... some more...

Ok, I have no idea what the clues mean, but it dawned on me that in TNOT Dancing Death when Our Heroes are interrogating the Camorra woman on the train (when Jim plays with the kitty), Artie (pretty sure it was Artie and not Jim) thinks he hears something outside and goes to check. (And while he's gone, Jim and the woman play kissy-face.)

So I'm guessing Artie to Jim in Dancing Death.

(Edited to add: Or was Cal Gal right with her Inferno guess?)

Correct. Thank goodness: the nightmare of concocting clues is finished. Over to you, as I return to the woodwork whence I crawled.

Before you crawl back please explain the clues! What's to explain? I made up gibberish.

This babe didn't return her carriage. In the episode's tag Marianna hunts and pecks on a first-generation Remington typewriter, with a technique so poor that its carriage return is never used.

Skullduggery with Classic Fellini: In the opening of Act I Artemus justifies his security measures by noting that the imposter was under surveillance from the moment she boarded La Dolce Vita (the title of Fellini's 1960 dramedy).

Jim sang, "Light My Fire." Jim did. "(Come on, Baby,) Light My Fire" (1967) was the biggest hit by Jim Morrison, leader of the Doors (see Acts I and II).

Wheels for Burns and Magoo: In Act I Prince Gio chides his sparring partner as "Old Bear"; in Act III Jim flips a somersaulting cat. Mr. Magoo and Mr. Burns (The Simpsons) drive Stutz Bearcats.

The best clue of all is what's unsaid. Over years of quizzing I learned that, if you want to stump this gang, use "The Dancing Death": an episode that nobody watches, talks about, or seems to like very much.

Au revoir.

Curiously enough, I like Dancing Death - or at least I like Princess Gina Carlotta. Even put her into a fanfic albeit as a minor character.

Continuing on...

Season 3
Very impressive

Clue the first:
The speaker laughs while saying the line.

How about Jim to Artie, TNOT Running Death, in the scene where Jim is by the campfire and Artie is pretending to read his lines?

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.

If memory serves (and it doesn't always), the line comes much earlier, almost as soon as Jim joins the wagon train in fending off the 'calvary' attack. In between taking potshots at their attackers, Artie informs Jim of his current name and profession, and Jim kind of smirks his reply.

But yes, that's speaker, spoken-to, and episode. You're up, Cal Gal!

I think you are probably right as to the scene. I couldn't remember exactly what Artie said to elicit the remark but now I believe I can.

I will return later with a new quote.

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.

Season 1:

It may lead you to reconsider your decision.

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.

Completely off the top of my head, I'm thinking that's Victor Buono's character to Jim in TNOT Inferno.
