Episode Notes
James Garner appears briefly in this episode but it's essentially Jack Kelly's. Although Kelly would frequently appear briefly in Garner episodes this marked the only time that Garner appeared briefly in one of his.

Kathleen Crowley makes her first of numerous appearances in this episode. All in all, she appeared in eight episodes making her Maverick's most frequent guest star.

A young Doug McClure makes one of his earliest acting appearances in an uncredited role as a hotel clerk. McClure would go onto star as Trampas on the classic NBC western The Virginian.

This episode takes place in 1876.

Episode Quotes
Daisy: Are you a gambler by chance?
Bart: No, by choice.

Bart: Your client is full of surprises, Mr. Felipe.

Felipe: You do not like being employed by a woman?
Bart: I don't like being employed.

Bart: (to Daisy) Do you like this hotel or do you play poker too?

Bart: I never drink after sundown.

Bart: I never argue about politics or barbed wire.

Daisy: (pulls gun) Don't move or I'll kill you.
Bart: I believe you.

Throughout the course of the series it seemed that Bart Maverick would take an ill-fated stagecoach ride approximately every third episode in which he appeard. This one marks the first of several and it also marks the first of eight appearances on the show by Kathleen Crowley. Ms. Crowley usually played a conniving female and that's just what she plays here. Bart gets a good run for his money and manages to survive without the aid of brother Bret, who appears briefly. This frequently didn't happen when the situations of the two brothers were reversed.
