Added DiffLines:

* InSeriesNickname: O'Rourke and Agarn often inspire the troops on Parmenter's behalf in the first season by urging them to "Do it for the old man!" Parmenter asks "What old man?" and has to be reminded that O'Rourke is referring to him. It's especially funny considering Parmenter's age relative to the older and more experienced O'Rourke.
** Inverted on one occasion: Parmenter urges his men with "Do it for the old man!" and O'Rourke has to be reminded instead.

* ActuallyNotAVampire: VincentPrice makes an appearance as a spooky immigrant in "V For Vampire". Everyone thinks he's a vampire, except of course Captain Parmenter. His reason? "They're not mentioned in the army manual." Of course, he's not a vampire.

* CaptainErsatz: B. Wise from "Spy, Counter, Counterspy" is essentially Maxwell Smart from ''Series/GetSmart'' in an Old West setting. They even borrow a couple of his [[CatchPhrase Catch Phrases]]. Justified as it would be unlikely for Smart to have time-travel capabilities. [[spoiler:And also averted, as Wise proves to be a traitor.]]
* CastingGag:
** Trooper Duffy (Bob Steele) is an elderly cavalryman who claims to be the sole survivor of the Alamo, and regularly recounts his exploits there. Steele was previously a 1930s and '40s Western movie star, and had once been in a movie about meeting Davy Crockett at the Alamo.
** Sergeant O'Rourke is played by Forrest Tucker, who once portrayed a similar "O'Rourke" Cavalry Sergeant on ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}''. In real life, he also served as a member of the United States Army Cavalry under George S. Patton.
