General Hoyt Bosco
Pappyism: When you're playing poker don't trust anybody - especially your brother.
Bret: If you'll excuse us, please, I think my brother's gonna be sick. If he isn't, I am.
Bret: I've still got $30. I was thinkin' I might split it with ya, and then again I might get back in that poker game and run it up to a thousand.
Bart: But what if ya lose the thirty..
Bret: You don't get the fifteen.
Bart: But if ya win the thousand?
Bret: You do get the fifteen.
Bart: Bret, sometimes your heart runs away with your head.
Jessamy: Bet you could stand a drink about now. My grandmother sent me this all the way from Tennessee. (holds up bottle) It's an old family cure for headaches : sour mash. She made it with her own little feet.
Bart: No thanks, I just had an apple.
(Jessamy enters Bart's room and begins pouring the liquor)
Bart: None for me, please.
Jessamy: You don't like sour mash?
Bart: If I wanted another bad habit, I don't think that'd be it.
Jessamy: Oh, well that sort of leaves me without an excuse for being here.
Bart: Did you need one?
Jessamy: I suppose you think I'm forcing myself on you, and I am. And if you think it's because of your money? It is.
Bart: You mean you actually prefer paupers?
Jessamy: But suppose I could tell you how you could get your money back? Would you be grateful?
Bart: $10,000? There isn't that much gratitude.
Jessamy: Well, I'd settle for a thousand … cash!
Bart: I think you're serious.
Jessamy: About money - grimly.
Bart: I don't know what you have in mind, ma'am, but you're speaking my language - greed.
Jessamy: I'm really awfully sorry, Bart, but business is business.
Jessamy: What happened to the horse?
Bret: I was robbed.
Jessamy: By who?
Old Man: Tell me somthin', Shifty, does an ear of corn ever have an odd number of rows?
Sundown: Any objections, Mr. Maverick?
Bret: No, none that I can back up.
Sundown: You got a nice attitude.
Jessamy: Bart, wait up. Something's happened to Bret.
Bart: You think somebody coulda cut his saddle cinch?
Bart: Now we better not wait for him. He's liable to be quite a while, especially if all the saddle cinches have been cut.
Stryker: Well, folks, I'm gonna bid you a fond adieu. I'm sorry, but … business is business.
Bart: Where have I heard that before?
Jessamy: Oh, shut up!
Bart: That's not the way it works between Bret and me. You see, Jesse, the one thing we don't do is kill each other.
Bart: What are you thinkin' now?
Bret: I'm thinkin' you're awful lucky not to be an only child.
(The Maverick boys narrate their differing points of view)
Bret: When Bart understood how wrong he had been, there weren't any more delays.
Bart: Once Bret realized how his greed had slowed us up, we made it to Deadwood in good time.
