A camel is seen in this episode. The U.S. Cavalry actually did experiment with using camels in the desert regions of the old west during the 19th century.
Brimmer: What were you holdin'?
Bret: Uh, you didn't pay to find out.
Brimmer: Games over. I'd kinda like to know what you beat me with.
Bret: Sometimes it's better not to know.
Poker Player: Enough room for those chips, Maverick?
Bret: Oh, I can always make big ones out of the little ones?
Harris: Well, it certainly doesn't seem like good strategy to me to announce your intention.
Bret: Well, it is the way I figure Mr. Jimson. You see, I'm pretty certain that under that manly chest of his beats a heart of pure yellow. I want him to know I'm coming, and think about it a long time.
Bret: First impressions are always important--with both animals and humans.
Jimson: Hoyle don't make the rules here. I do.
Bret: I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were playing a poker game. You can make up rules for any game you like, but don't call it poker. It's misleading.
Bret: The one way for a card player to be sure of winning is to get into a crooked game and play honest … if he knows what to look for. And there's nothing I like better than to trip up a card shark.
Bret: Trying to sell a camel was like trying to sell a herd of sheep to a cattleman.
Bret: If you're going to play poker, you'll have to develop a sense of humor. That's an old trick, my friend : keep smiling.
