* 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.

* AttractiveBentGender: Agarn, dressed as an "Indian maid", to coax the Loco Brothers out of their cave. Made funnier by the fact that Wrangler Jane, an actual woman, had failed in an earlier bid to do the same. Made famous to a new generation by being the clip shown on ''{{Freakazoid}}''. It helped that Agarn learned the Indian Love Dance at a Hekawi party.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The pilot episode is the only one where any actual battles against Indians take place, and anyone dies. Any subsequent episodes dealing with the natives involve working with, outwitting, or making peace with them as needed.

* BenevolentBoss: For all of his failings and inexperience as a military commander, Captain Parmenter is nonetheless beloved by his men because he actually cares about them. Even O'Rourke and Agarn, who start the series only wanting to keep Parmenter around because of his obliviousness towards their side-businesses, actually develop a friendship with him and want him to remain because they actually care about him.

* DelayedReaction: "Who says I'm dumb?!"

to:

* DelayedReaction: "Who One of the many {{Running Gag}}s involved Cpl. Agarn making a snide comment about their current situation, like "It's a shame we can't get someone to sing in his place." The other person, realizing that this is actually a good idea, says "Agarn, I don't know why everyone says you're so dumb!" Later, usually after the next scene change, Agarn suddenly shouts "''Who'' says I'm dumb?!"dumb?"

* SpotTheImposter: Bandit Kid Vicious has tied and gagged his good twin, Captain Parmenter, preventing him from shouting about the switch. However, as the sheriff prepares to take Parmenter away, he trips on the rug [[TheKlutz in a very familiar fashion]]. Sergeant O'Rourke has the gag removed, allowing Parmenter to prove his true identity by correctly identifying Agarn's first name, Dobbs as the company bugler, and Wrangler Jane as his girlfriend.
