Pappyism: As long as you live, stick to poker.
Bret: I'm Bret Maverick. I didn't know Jed had a grown daughter.
Carrie: We Christiansen's are full of surprises. Hop in.
Bret: Isn't there a safer way to get to the Molly O?
Carrie: You could walk. It's only nine miles.
Jed: What's the big hurry, Bret? Leadville will still be there.
Bret: How can I be sure? Leadville's just startin' to boom. That's the time when the games are big and loose.
Bret: (about poker) Luck's important only when you play with men who play as tight as you do. When I find that out, I quit. It's gambling.
Carrie: Red, you're jealous.
Red: (about Bret) Now if I was jealous I'd be out there bustin' him to pieces.
Carrie: (to Bret) I find you completely resistable.
Bret: What's your dad got against this Hardigan?
Carrie: Only one thing--he doesn't have any money.
Bret: At least he and I are starting off even.
Bret: (to Jed) I promised my pappy that on my 38th birthday I'd look around for a wife, get married, and raise twelve Mavericks. That's a long way off.
Jed: Take a big handful. Doubt if you'll find cigars like that in Leadville.
Bret: I'll have a supply shipped in from Cuba.
Bret: (to Jed) I've never owed anybody any money in my life and I don't intend to begin now.
Red: I'm Red Hardigan. Mind if I pull up a chair?
Bret: All it takes is $500.
Jed: (about his wheelchair) On second thought, why walk when you can ride?
Red: Your stage is waiting for you, Maver-ack.
Bret: You sellin' tickets?
Red: No, but you're buyin' one.
Carrie: You put money ahead of everything, don't you?
Bret: No, there's breathing.
Red: (to the doctor) This right hand's gonna bring you some business.
Jed: (to Carrie about Red) Honey, believe me, he wants the Molly O a lot worse than he wants you.
Bret: (to the doctor about "Hardin") Mean lookin' cuss, ain't he?
Bret: Where's that other big gunslinger, Red Hardigan? I might as well take care of him while I'm in the mood.
