    • Roger Cushman: My reason being, Mr. Maverick, is that, uh, I just lost $30,000 in that game. I'd like to get even. If I recall, you're quite adept at poker. Bart: Well, I've had my share of luck. Roger Cushman (false laugh): You're being modest, Mr. Maverick, it's more than luck. Why, you've reduced poker to a science. I know all of those gentlemen upstairs, my Uncle George is one of them. Banking and industrial tycoons, all of them richer than Croesus, but when it comes to poker they're amateurs. A man with your skill would have very little trouble in cleaning up.

    • Butler: Such a pity, gentlemen, that the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre last year. George Cushman: A great loss to the world of art. What are your cultural interests, Colonel? Bart: Engravings, sir. Borg: Engravings? Bart: Especially the ones on thousand dollar bills.

    • Sutton: Uh, Colonel, I make it $25,000. Your check will be entirely acceptable. Bart: I'm afraid my check won't be any good at all, sir. I don't have that kind of money. I'm sorry it turned out like this, Roger, I guess this is one check you'll have to write out. George Cushman: What's all this about? Roger Cushman: Well, I don't know, I can't understand. Bart: Now just a minute, Roger, we had a deal. You were to share in my winnings and back all my losses. I told you it was possible for me to lose. Roger Cushman: I'm afraid I don't understand you at all, Colonel.

    • Ann: You don't look like an experienced man-servant, Colonel. What are your qualifications? Bart: None, and I'm not really a Colonel, Miss Sutton. My name is Maverick, Bart Maverick. Ann: But father said … Why did father hire you? Bart: Oh, indentured would be a better word for it. Uh, you might say I'm under long-term contract.

    • Crimmins: Gentleman's man? Bart: My own man, until this afternoon. Crimmins: We'll do the silverware first, then I'll show you the kitchen. Bart: Kitchen? Well, I thought I was supposed to help you in here. Crimmins: My dear Maverick, a good servant never questions his duties. He knows what they are instinctively, he's born with that knowledge. Tsk, tsk, tsk … I can't understand what this new breed of domestics is coming to.
