    • Brill: Afternoon. Looks like you've had quite a ride. Bret: In that sun, crossin' the street would be quite a ride. Brill: What'll you have? Bret: Nothing, thanks. I just came in to get outta the heat. Brill: Feel like eatin'? Bret: Not unless you carry a line of free food.

    • Bret: Oh, would you give this to … well, I didn't get his name .. Brill: To Moose? What for? Bret: Uh, he didn't know it at the time, but he made me a small loan. Brill: Well, there's ten dollars here, you only took him for five. Bret: I got a delicate conscience.

    • Sheriff: Well, I try to encourage confidence men to stay out of Bent Forks - the bail's a hundred dollars. Bret: That's a little more than I've got. Sheriff: Well, the Circuit Judge is comin' through here in about ten days, you got a pretty good story, he might let you off with a warning. You know, you must have a pretty low opinion of this town - the belt game went out with the Civil War.

    • (Molly brings Bret his supper) Bret: Well, I may decide to stay - most jails, the waiter has his thumb in the soup and needs a shave.

    • Bret: By the way, I don't cheat at cards. I don't have to. There's no one easier to beat than a cardsharp - if you know his twists - and in most games, there's usually one of 'em.
