Episode Quotes
Bart: (to Elena) Careful, senorita, I understand just enough Spanish to know when I'm being insulted.

Elena: Would you care to go on with us?
Bart: I couldn't have said it better myself.

Bart (about Elena) Jack, remember I saw her first.

Bart: Warn her about yourself later, Darby. I'm seeing the lady to her tent.

Darby: (to Bart about Elena) I have a blind, unreasoned passion for Latin women.

Man: How come you only auction one hour a day?
Bart: Why it's simple, friend. If we auctioned anymore it wouldn't be an auction. It'd be a store.

Bart: We'd better start playin' poker tonight or we'll be losin' money.
Darby: Partner, I think we've waited long enough.

Wilson: Don't you boys ever do any gambling?
Bart: Oh, now and then.

Bart: (to Wilson) A full house does beat a flush, doesn't it?

Bart: (to Elena) Money can't buy you friends. Money can't buy you happiness. Money can't buy you peace of mind. Confederate money, that is.

Bart: I'm unarmed, Darby.
Darby: Except for your mouth.

Wilson: (to Bart) I was willin' to spend $5,000 to buy you out, mister. I'll be even happier to spend $5,000 to bury you.

Jed: You boys sure pulled off a neat one.
Darby: Now what gives you all an idea like that? I just went hunting.



Episode References
The script for this episode would be used again in an episode of The Alaskans entitled Kangaroo Court.



Analysis
Bart and pal Gentleman Jack Darby run one of the better scams in the series in order to get a mine that's been flooded pumped out so they can operate it. Richard Long and Adele Mara, the wife of series creator Roy Huggins, have nice guest shots.
