    • 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.

    • Roger Cushman: Uh-uh (snaps his fingers), just a moment, my good man, I'll have one of those. (Maverick, the manservant, spills the drinks he was carrying on Cushman) Oh, you … blundering idiot. You did that on purpose. You uncouth, incompetent Texas …
      Bart: I'm sorry, sir, but my nerves are not what they should be, lately.
      Roger Cushman: I'll see that you're discharged for this, Maverick.

    • Sutton: Now, we're all friends here …
      George Cushman: Friends, certainly, but this is business, Paul. Now, of course, I'm only speaking for myself, but I am against throwing good money after bad.
      Sutton: I'm not asking only for myself. A lot of small stockholders are gonna be wiped out along with me.
      George Cushman: I've already donated a hundred thousand to charity this year.

    • Bart: You know, my old pappy taught us Mavericks that there were a lot worse things in life than being broke. 'Course, I must admit, he didn't know of any.
      Ann: You're a most unusual, and most comforting manservant, Bart.

    • Sutton: Think of it, Maverick, the most famous masterpiece in the world. Men like George Cushman would sell their birthright to own it.
      Bart: You make it sound like a contest … acquiring famous paintings.
      Sutton: Not only paintings, Maverick. Why, the culture of the world is available to the man who can afford it.
      Bart: I didn't know culture could be bought.
      Sutton: It can't. We wouldn't know real culture if we fell over it. Men like Cushman, Scott, me - we weren't born to wealth, we clawed our way up.

    • Bart: Duke. Duke Delaney.
      Nardi: It's Cosmo Nardi, Bart - connoisseur of fine arts, dealer in ancient masterpieces of the Renaissance. (nervous laugh) What brings you to San Francisco?
      Bart: Well, I just followed the fog. My old pappy always told me that travel broadens the imagination.
      Nardi: And keeps you one jump ahead of the police?
      Bart: In your case, perhaps.
      Nardi: Why I still remember that night in New Orleans when you passed yourself off as a French Consul to get invited to that private poker game in the Mayor's house.
      Bart: That was the night I was forced into a duel to defend (adopts French accent) the honor and glory of the Republic, eh?
      Nardi: I was your second.
      Bart: And I ended up in jail.
      Nardi: B-but I bailed you out with …
      Bart: With twenty dollar bills that you were making in your place on Ramparts Street.

    • Nardi: How do you like my shop?
      Bart: It's a fine front.
      Nardi: I told you, I'm a respected art expert here, running a legitimate business.
      Bart: What do you know about art?
      Nardi: As much as my customers do. (nervous laugh) They want paintings, sculptures, Ming vases … I try to get it for them. There's big money in it, Bart, big money. I could use a man like you.
      Bart: Oh, no thanks. I have a weak stomach for the food they serve in these California prisons.

    • George Cushman: You overestimate my influence, Maverick. On matters of this nature the board votes by secret ballot.
      Bart: All I want is your word that your decision will be favorable.
      George Cushman: Well, at the moment, I have no choice. How did you find out about the Mona Lisa?
      Bart: I never expose my hole card, Mr. Cushman, until the play is called.

    • George Cushman: Out of consideration for your departed father, and your dear mother, I have tolerated your empty-headed, weak-spined foppery, maybe I've even abetted it. But it's got to stop, it's got to stop now. It was your doing getting that Maverick into our private poker party, wasn't it?
      Roger Cushman: Yes, Uncle George, but I told you, he took advantage of me. Besides which, I don't know why you're so upset, didn't take any money from you.
      George Cushman: But he got tied in with Paul Sutton because of it. I want you to get rid of him.
      Roger Cushman: Who, Paul Sutton?
      George Cushman: No, Maverick! Get rid of him, and quietly.
      Roger Cushman: You mean kill?
      George Cushman: Oh, no, not murder. You'd only botch it up and we'd all end up on the gallows.

    • Roger Cushman: I understand you're short-handed.
      Captain Bly: The pay is ten a month.
      Roger Cushman: It's not for me, Captain. But I do have someone for you. He'd make an excellent hand.
      Captain Bly: Uh-huh, where is he?
      Roger Cushman: His name is Maverick, Bart Maverick. But I'd have to get him for you. I may need some help.
      Captain Bly: You mean shanghai?
      Roger Cushman: I believe that's the word you use.
      Captain Bly (sighs): What the shanghai business is comin' to if dudes like you gettin' into it? (scoffs) But, for the proper consideration …

    • Ann: How dare you, Captain. Are you the man responsible for having my fiancé attacked and brought here like … some common thief?
      Captain Bly: Your fiancé?
      Bart: Darling, now don't blame the Captain. He didn't know, he thought I was somebody named Maverick.
      Ann: You poor boy. And who is he?
      Roger Cushman: Who is he?
      Captain Bly: My new stoker, ma'am.

    • Bart: Good morning, gentlemen. I see you're all hard at work. Oh, come now, gentlemen, that's no way to start a day. Remember, a smile, one of man's greatest treasures. Oh, incidently, Mr. Cushman, your nephew asked me to tell you that he's taking a trip - to China.

    • Roger Cushman: His name is Maverick, Bart Maverick. But I'd have to get him for you. I may need some help.
      Captain Bly: You mean shanghai?
      Roger Cushman: I believe that's the word you use.
      Captain Bly (sighs): What the shanghai business is comin' to if dudes like you gettin' into it? (scoffs) But, for the proper consideration …

    • Bart: Oh, come now, gentlemen, that's no way to start a day. Remember, a smile, one of man's greatest treasures.
