  • All of the cast were well acted intriguing and brilliant. I always liked Bret (James Garner) when I watched the show in the late 50's and early 60's however, I have grown to appreciate Bart (Jack Kelley) as I watch Maverick again on Encore.moreless

    This is a particularly good episode. It has interesting character development and twists in the plot. The cast were well acted intriguing and brilliant. I always liked Bret (James Garner) when I watched the show in the late 50's and early 60's however, I have grown to appreciate Bart (Jack Kelley) as I watch Maverick again on Encore. This was quite a detective story where Bart has to figure out who robs him and follows the leads. This takes Bart on quite the adventure to find his money. I would highly recommend this episode as it is brilliantly written and well acted.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Bart: The distance from Placerville to Virginia City is a little over a hundred miles, and, as a general rule, it's a two-day trip. But, as a general rule, on this stage line, it's not a good idea to make bets on the general rule.

    • Bart: Wherever Anne went the outlaw wasn't sure to go, but there was a chance he would; and with $1,500 in the pot, that was enough for me.

    • Sheriff: Maverick. You've got 24 hours.
      Bart: For what?
      Sheriff: To get yourself a job or haul outta this town.
      Bart: Suppose I decide to do neither?
      Sheriff: I'll jail you - as a vagrant.
      Bart: That again.

    • Dr. Dillon: Hey, how long you gonna be with us, Mr. Maverick.
      Bart: There are two opinions on that, Doctor. I figure to be here for quite a spell, and the Sheriff figures to shoo me out tomorrow unless I get a job.
      Buck: Well, if that's all you need, you've got no problem, Maverick. I can always use an extra hand at the ranch.
      Bart: That's very kind of you, Mr. Wilkerson; and if I grow an extra hand, I'll send it out to you.

    • Laura: So you're a gambler, Mr. Maverick?
      Bart: No, I'm a poker player. I do my best to avoid gambling.

    • Sheriff: Maverick. Your times run out. You're takin' the next stage out of town.
      Bart: Oh, but Sheriff, that's illegal. I'm a working man, I have a very important job.
      Sheriff: What kind of a job.
      Bart: Camel spotter.
      Sheriff: A what?
      Bart: Camel spotter. Every hour or so I step outside to see if any camels are coming.
      Sheriff: Camels?
      Bart: With Arabs riding them. Now, if I spot any, I high tail it down to the dispatch office and wire Washington that we're being invaded.
      Sheriff: That's very funny, but I don't think it meets the requirements.
      Bart: I'm afraid it does, Sheriff. The law doesn't specify what the job must be, only that I be gainfully employed.
      Dr. Dillon: And I can vouch for that, Sheriff. You see, I'm paying him.
      Bart (he looks at his watch): Well, it's time for me to take another look. Excuse me.

    • Laura (watching Anne steal her beau): Well, how do you play a hand like this one, Mr. Maverick?
      Bart: You don't. You fold and wait for the next deal.

    • Laura: She married Buck Wilkerson two days ago.
      Bart: I'm sorry, Laura. That gal plays a mean hand. Well, all the cards haven't been dealt yet. There's still a joker in the deck.

    • Bart: Oh, give him another chance and marry him, Laura. He isn't bright, but he's very unattractive - and those are the best kind.

    • Bart: A good poker player never lets himself be bluffed out of an important pot.

    • Bart: Evening, you have a vacant room?
      Clerk: We got a vacant hotel.

    • Anne: Leave an address. I may drop in on you someday.
      Bart: Lovely. How about Pitcairn Island?

    • Anne: Leave an address. I may drop in on you someday.
      Bart: Lovely. How about Pitcairn Island?

      Pitcairn Island, in the southern Pacific, was still a British colony at the time of Bret's adventure. It was already well-known, however, as home to the descendants of the original HMS Bounty mutineers (and the Tahitians who helped them) - the infamous "Mutiny on the Bounty". Made famous in our time by maybe half a dozen films, the incident was made notorious in Bret's time by the literary efforts of Lord Byron and Sir John Barrow.
