- Sidney Brand: I've often wondered how you change from one person into another. Capt. Mephisto: No doubt you have. I'll tell you this much. The appearance of human beings' stature, complexion and pigmentation is controlled by the molecular arrangement of the blood corpuscles. I have found a means of altering that arrangment. Sidney Brand: I understand. Capt. Mephisto: If I thought you really did, I'd *kill* you!
Capt. Mephisto: Remember, any attempt to discover which one of the owners is my true personality will result in your immediate destruction!
Lance Reardon: Don't lose your head - dead men can't walk!
Capt. Mephisto: You wouldn't dare trick me? Prof. William Forrest: Trick you? I'd kill you if I thought I could escape afterwards! As it is, I'm obeying orders. Capt. Mephisto: Don't tax my patience too far!
- Roy Barcroft regarded "Captain Mephisto" in this non-western serial as his favorite role.
