    • Bret (to Bart): Well, I thought I needed you to help me swing the deal, but I did it myself with a pair of aces and a fair knowledge of the grand game of poker.

    • Bart: Fifty-five hundred dollars is still a lot of money for rice and silk, even if you're a hungry dressmaker.

    • Captain Nares: Well, you don't look like the fool, but I don't know about your brother. (laughs) Bart: Well, take my word for it. I've known him a long time. If he ever does anything foolish, it costs other people money.

    • Captain Nares: You have yourself aboard the Nora Kareena tomorrow morning. The crew is my lookout. And don't expect a flock of smiling angels.

    • Bret: Ya know, Bart … look, we've been broke before, but not dead. Why don't we just forget the whole thing?
