Holliday: Barkeep, four whiskeys please.
Bart: I just have time for one.
Holliday: Make that three.
Harrison: Mr. Maverick, whether you're a registered voter or not, I'll buy you a drink sometime.
Jonesy: What about me?
Harrison: You I'll just buy.
Jonesy: (to Bart) I'm the kind who carries an umbrella just to make sure it doesn't rain.
Jeanie: I'm making this offer for my father, the Senator.
Bart: I'm turning down the offer for myself, Bart Maverick.
Jeanie: Sit down. You can't walk out and leave me in the saloon.
Bart: My dear young lady, you are not supposed to be in the saloon in the first place.
Bart: (to Sheriff Bentley) If Senator Porter thinks he can scare me all I can say is he's an excellent judge of character.
Holliday: The trouble with you, Maverick, is you have no imagination. The printed word is much more lethal than a gun.
Molly: I hate to see such a nice man get mixed up with Jeanie Porter.
Bart: Doc can take care of himself, Molly.
Porter: (to Holliday) When a man like you pretends to be modest, look out.
Life would later imitate art in the case of this episode. Here, Bart Maverick takes charge of a small-town newspaper whereas portrayer Jack Kelly would also run a weekly newspaper in Huntington Beach, CA after his acting roles dried up.
