* TrustPassword: When Shorty and Baldy make a stop in a tavern while hunting a doppelganger, Shorty suggests establishing a trust password, so that they will know if the doppelganger is impersonating the other. Baldy dismisses all Shorty's suggestions... [[spoiler:and kills the false "Shorty" on the spot. As it happens, they'd already established such a password.]]

** Aside from him (and some secret group he's insinuated to be a member of) the rest of the world doesn't even know what gunpowder is. It's hilarious for him to keep pointing guns at people who don't get that he's threatening them.
