  • Quotes (14)

    • Pappyism: Stick your nose in other people's business and you'll get it bent.

    • Bret: Do I get to shuffle? Bordeen: As much as you want. Well, do we have a bet? Bret: Double or nothing? Bordeen: Double or nothing. Bret: Those are pretty attractive odds, Mr. Bordeen.

    • Kennedy: You've seen that trick before, Mr. Maverick?

      Bret: No, just that kind of trickster. This is my profession, gentlemen.

      Kennedy: Hard to understand. Losing $10,000 to Bordeen is no more than losing $10 is to most people, he's that rich.

      Bret: Some men can't stand to lose ten cents, Mr. Kennedy, no matter how rich they are.

    • Bret: A long time ago, Mr. Bordeen, I decided that a gambling debt wasn't ever important enough to kill a man over. I decided that welshers are people to feel sorry for. That the pressure that made them crawl so low must've been worse than anything I could do to them. So I let it go at that, marked it off to profit and loss, but you don't get off that easy.

    • Sheriff: Either you've had too much to drink or not enough, one or the other, now clear outta here.
