Episode Notes
Beginning with this entry in the series, first-run episodes of Maverick starring Jack Kelly aired on alternating weeks with reruns of previous episodes that starred James Garner.

The characters of Pearly Gates and Marla would return in The Troubled Heir.

Another change for the show's final season concerned the opening credits. For the first time, Jack Kelly was billed ahead of James Garner.

Episode Quotes
Pappyism: A man should stick to what he knows.

Bart: Marla, I hope you realize Pearly Gates got that nickname from that tiepin he wears not from his chances of ever meeting St. Peter.

Bart: Dade City--a little horsefly on the big rump of Texas.

Sheriff: (to Bart) You're a lot better at bargaining than you are playing poker.

Sheriff: (to Pearly) Son, you've got more aliases than a gopher's got holes.

Bart: What makes you think I've been carrying around $4,000?
Marla: Because I've already searched your room, darlin'.

Bart: Have a very pleasant journey.
Marla: Well at least I'll go back first class.

Pearly: Are you sure you know what you're doin'?
Bart: If I did, I wouldn't be here right now, would I, Pearly?

Bart: The kind of company I keep, a bank vault is my best friend.
