Episode Quotes
Bart: (about drinking) I've got so many vices I decided to give that one up.

Bart: (to Virginia) Some things you forget if you knew them at all.

Bart: (to Virginia) If you're just one of the boys I don't want any girls.

Virginia: What are you really after here, Maverick?
Bart: When I think of an answer to that one, Virginia, I'll let you know.

Clete: (about Fillmore) Barney could tail an Apache through a dust storm.

Fillmore: (to Bart) I figure you can be outta town by tomorrow afternoon. See that you are.

Annie: You have real nice shoulders.
Bart: I use 'em to hold up my shirts.

Bart: (to Haines) I'm sorry but the path of sin doesnt pass through here. Try next door.

Virginia: I'm beginning to see a new side of you, Mr. Maverick. I'm not sure I like it.



Analysis
Jack Kelly's first solo effort of the series is kind of average although we do get a nice guest shot from the lovely Sherry Jackson whose character proves to be the final piece in the solution of the mystery which has Bart trying to save an innocent man from the gallows.
