      • Carter: Just not so quick, "family friend" (pulls gun on Bart), we don't need the sheriff.

        Bart: Well, that's what's botherin' me.

      • Bart: The important thing is to keep you alive. You can worry about paying us back as soon as you're safely out of town.

      • Bart: Normally, I don't take money from women. But in Marla's case I had no misgivings, since it was mine in the first place, I think.

      • Bart: There are two things that make a strange town more friendly--the sound of a friendly voice or word of a friendly game.

      • Pearly: You have no idea how many times I thought of you.
        Bart: Especially when you were broke.

      • Bart (to Marla): The only profitable place for me is far away from you.

      • Big Jim (to Pearly): You're not gonna leave town alive. (to Bart) Neither are you.
