Episode Quotes
Bret: You're ahead when you've won ten cents.

Bret: (to the Kid) $3,000 won't bring you happiness especially when it's my $3,000.

Man: (about the Kid) Is he a friend of yours, mister?
Bret: No, but the money was.

Sheriff: My only trouble is I don't believe in ghosts.
Bret: Neither do I when they're carrying Winchester rifles.

Sheriff: (about Bret) I sure hope he ain't gonna settle here permanently.

Bret: I'm all for a fellow makin' a livin' as long as it don't interfere with mine.

Bret: (to Felton): I think you're more interested in Mary Shane than you are Bret Maverick.

Bret: (to Felton) This is the second killing you've hung on me.

Bret: (to Mary): I'm just a plain ole innocent bystander.



Analysis
Pretty good early episode as Bret Maverick, tracking down money stolen from him after a poker game, meets up with a woman who supposedly died a few weeks before. Though not a perfect episode by any means it does contain some decent suspense and some good twists and turns.
