** Though given Thornton's interaction with both Robert Mitchum and Bart Jason in previous scenes, it seems that "the fourth man" is probably J. P. Harrah.

-->'''Bull Harris:''' ...might have anyhow if I wasn't tryin' to figure out what that fella's got on his head.\\
'''Mississippi:''' It's called a hat.\\
'''Bull Harris:''' Well, I'll have to take your word for it.

A few months later, Cole Thornton reappears in a small town on the Mexican border. In a local cantina he witnesses a young man, Mississippi (James Caan), approaching a group of tough guys and challenging one of them. The man is the last of four men who had killed an old gambler, his surrogate father, and Mississippi wants revenge. The man's boss, gunslinger Nelse [=McLeod=] (Christopher George), is intrigued and watches, because Mississippi does not carry a gun. In a duel across the table, Mississippi manages to kill his opponent with a thrown knife before he can shoot. Thornton then saves Mississippi's life by shooting the gun out of the hand of another of [=MacLeod's=] men who now wants to avenge his late comrade. Impressed by his quick draw, [=MacLeod=] offers Thornton to take the dead man's place in his outfit for his next job - a range war in El Dorado. It should not be too difficult, he says, the only person who could interfere is the local sheriff, and he now is too drunk to shoot straight. Thornton politely refuses.

** Missippi, in general, is a series of running gags. Of particular note is everyone's reaction to his hat and no one being able to say his real name correctly.
