Bret: I met Holliday once. He's a little shorter than I am but not half as good lookin'.
Grady: I thought Mavericks was cattle.
Bret: Don't let that fool you, son. Back east they got a whole state named Jersey.
Bart: What started you out for Yuma?
Bret: Same thing that started you out, Brother Bart. I'm runnin' outta coin.
Sheriff: Why did you call him Wyatt yesterday?
Bret: I was just askin' myself the same question.
Bart: What do we do?
Bret: Talk our way out.
Bart: That bunch doesn't look like it's huntin' for conversation.
Bret: You wanna shoot your way out?
Bart: Let's talk.
Bret: It's hard to be mean when you got your arm around a girl as pretty as that.
Mundy: You gents wanna see me?
Bret: No, live and let live is our way of thinking.
Mundy: Good, you keep thinking like that and you might live to see your grandchildren.
Bret: So you got yourself shot?
Bart: That's the rumor.
Bart: Bret, I wish it was you lyin' here instead of me.
Bret: That's my boy.
Sheriff: (about Bret's prowess with a gun) How good are you?
Bret: I'm not too good but I like to think the next man is even worse.
Grady: I still say Mavericks is cattle.
Bart: Son, back in Kansas City I knew a drummer named Holstein.
Sometimes they save the best for last and that's certainly the case with the first season of Maverick. Seed of Deception is the best episode of the show's premiere season as it features a joint appearance by the brothers Maverick in which they are mistaken for legendary gunfighters Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday while passing through a small Arizona town. Bret and Bart don't exactly create their own legend here but they do manage to foil a bank robbery plot and emerge with their hides in one piece (except for Bart getting shot). The latter is all they usually asked for.
