    • Bret: I was minding my own business, which is poker … One look into the community center and I knew I was in the wrong town. Buckley: Maverick! Hold up, there. Bret: Dandy Jim Buckley. Buckley: By George, it is a small world, isn't it? Bret: Crowded is the word for it.

    • Buckley: You do have money, don't you? Bret: Not for you, Buckley. If you wanna steal money, do it from somebody else. Buckley: Well, I can't blame you for saying that. You're remembering me the way I used to be. I'm not like that anymore, Maverick. I'm a new man, and a better one. Bret: Yeah. Buckley: I'll tell you what did it. I suddenly realized that an honest dollar is easier to come by than a crooked one. It changed my whole life, Maverick. It gives you a good clean feeling, working for a living. Bret: Don't get me choked-up, Buckley.

    • Bret: Deep down in his depraved little heart Dandy Jim Buckley knew that he had me. He knew, and I knew, that I couldn't sleep until I figured out what he was up to. It was nothing but curiosity that was making me do something that no sane man would do. I was drawing to an inside straight.

    • (Dandy Jim is dividing the spoils from his horse-selling con) Buckley: Twenty for you, twenty for me. Twenty for you, twenty for me. Maverick, my friend, you're not really going to give yours back, are you? Bret: You don't understand me at all, Buckley. I love money, but I hate jails.

    • Bartender: I ain't ever seen the Sheriff this mad since the day … (lowers voice) Hognose Hughes broke out of his jail. Sheriff swore nobody'd ever break out of his jail again. The way he feels now, though, I don't suppose he'd mind people breakin' in … for a worthy cause. Bret: Oh, and lynchin' is a worthy cause? Bartender: Well, now, it does help folks let off steam. And, two, it's a great saving in time and expense.

    • Buckley: Maverick, parting is such sweet sorrow.

      Buckley is quoting from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, scene 2.

    • Dan Blocker, who would go on to play "Hoss" Cartwright on Bonanza, can be seen onscreen for about 45 seconds at the very beginning of the episode in a "silent-movie" segment filmed to resemble old-time, off-speed newsreel footage.
