  • Episode Description
  • Arriving in the town of Sundown to visit an old friend, Bret soon gets involved in a triangle with the friend's daughter and a shiftless cowboy named Red Hardigan who's fast with a gun. Hardigan calls Bret out for a gunfight but it seems that notorious gunfighter John Wesley Hardin also has a grudge against our hero so he might have to wait in line.

    • Pappyism: As long as you live, stick to poker.

    • Bret: Isn't there a safer way to get to the Molly-O? Carrie: You could walk, it's only nine miles. Bret: No thanks. You mind if I drive? Carrie: What's the matter, you scared? Bret: Yeah.

    • Doc: "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink." Jed: Yeah, but you can be pretty sure that he will.

    • Bret: Jed, only one man in a hundred plays poker with any regard for the odds. Luck's important only when you sit down with men who play as tight as you do. When I find that out, I quit. It's gambling.

    • Jed: You can lose, even to a bad player, can't you? Bret: Well, they play for luck, sometimes they get it.
