The Accomplice (Episode 1.13)
Executive Producer Roy Huggins
These trademark words of Owen Wisters hero are spoken by the Virginian at the end of the episode, in response to Trampas suggestion that his friend would make a good bank robber.

The Virginians pistol came out, and his hand lay on the table, holding it aimed. And with a voice as gentle as ever, the voice that sounded almost like a caress, but drawling a very little more than usual, so that there was almost a space between each word, he issued his orders to the man Trampas: -
When you call me that, smile! And he looked at Trampas across the table.
