Episode Notes
This is the second and final episode that can be called a joint appearance by Jack Kelly and Roger Moore. Moore would make cameos in two more Kelly episodes.

Beau spouts a Pappyism in this episode.



Episode Quotes
Pappyism #1: All men are equal before the law but what kind of odds are those?

Beau: What does it all mean, Sheriff?
Sheriff: (pulls gun) Well, maybe this will make it a little clearer.

Beau: Pleasant dreams, Cousin Bart.
Bart: Ditto.

Bart: Cousin Beau, have you forgotten the fact that this cell has beds?

Wembley: (to Beau) What's the matter, Mr. Maverick, don't you trust your own cousin?

Beau: (about Phyllis) Do you believe her?
Bart: Don't put it on me.

Sheriff: Just a minute. What is all this?
Beau: You'll see. We hope.

Pappyism #2: Hard work never hurt anybody who didn't do it.



Analysis
Jack Kelly and Roger Moore make a joint appearance in this episode and while they didn't have the chemistry together that Kelly and James Garner had it's still pretty enjoyable and makes one wish there had been more joint appearances for the two.
