Episode Quotes
Pappyism #1: By the time we're up on the rules of the game of life we're too old to play it.

Pappyism #2: It's fine to turn over a new leaf but there's always somebody tryin' to snoop through the old pages.

Trevor: Do you have a crystal ball or do you read fortunes with cards?
Bart: No, but I have lost a few fortunes with 'em.

Mrs. Amber: You're a stranger.
Bart: I was hoping you wouldn't notice.

Bart: (to Marybelle) It's nice knowing I'm not the only stranger here.

Deacon: It disturbs me in this land of plenty to find a man financially embarassed.
Bart: It bothers me too, Deacon.

Trevor: (to Bart) Didn't take you long to track down the free grub, did it?

Trevor: Snakes sometimes have a refined appearance but they're still a snake.
Bart: You dress very well, Sheriff.

Marybelle: The Deacon taught me to love my neighbor.
Bart: Then start with me because I'm the nearest.

Bart: Generally, when I start shooting at something, it has a nasty habit of shooting back.

Bart: The gold means more to you than I do?
Marybelle: About $50,000 more.

Bart: Your dog drinks?
Oscar: Why shouldn't he? He's old enough.

Trevor: (to Bull and Snake) You two apes couldn't find a grizzly bear in a silo.

Marybelle: What difference does it make whether they kill us tonight or tomorrow?
Bart: Now don't listen to her, Deacon. I happen to prefer tomorrow.

Very good episode with nice guest shots from Peter Breck as an outlaw posing as a sheriff and Merry Anders as a conniving damsel. Breck and star Jack Kelly really played off each other well in this episode which was probably why the producers decided to bring Breck back in the recurring role of Doc Holliday.
