In this TV western, Mr. Cubitt played a recurring character named Robert Shelby, a captain of the Confederate Army and still loyal to his commanding officer Col. Clay Mosby, now trying to live in the post-Civil War west, most often through robbery.
  "It took you five years to get over Mary. And I sat in that dark room until you made up your damn stubborn mind to live. Hannah is not Mary. Mary's dead."
  Mosby: "When was the last time you were in a church, Robert?" Shelby: "It's not something I felt like doin' for a while, not since Gettysburg, anyway."
  "We lost the war but we fought it with honor. We are still gentleman. Let's keep it that way."
  Shelby: "I don't understand you, Clay. You see, we robbed their bank. A man was killed." Mosby: "Nobody can prove --." Shelby: "And how long do you think it'll take before somone pieces that together?" Mosby: "You worry too much."
  "We'll rob every bank and stage in the territory and we'll be swimming in Yankee gold."
  "Dyin' in battle is one thing. Dyin' alone at the end of a rope in a backwater town like this... That is not an end I am prepared to endure. I'm sure you understand."
