Narrator: "A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty, 'Hi Yo Silver!' The Lone Ranger!"
Lone Ranger: "Hi Yo Silver, away!"
Narrator: "With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains led the fight for law and order in the early west. Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. The Lone Ranger rides again!"
The Lone Ranger Creed by Fran Striker (creator of the Lone Ranger)
"I believe that to have a friend,
a man must be one.
That all men are created equal
and that everyone has within himself
the power to make this a better world.
That God put the firewood there
but that every man
must gather and light it himself.
In being prepared
physically, mentally, and morally
to fight when necessary
for that which is right.
That a man should make the most
of what equipment he has.
That 'This government,
of the people, by the people
and for the people'
shall live always.
That men should live by
the rule of what is best
for the greatest number.
That sooner or later...
we must settle with the world
and make payment for what we have taken.
That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever.
In my Creator, my country, my fellow man."
—Fran Striker, creator of the Lone Ranger'
Deladier: A big goddam mistake!
Lone Ranger: "In all the fights between the whites and the Indians, it's the whites who've always started the trouble."
—the 1957 Lone Ranger feature film.
"He helped us, and we don't even know his name. Who was that masked man?"
"Don't you know? He's the Lone Ranger!"
