Episode Notes
Bart mentions Dandy Jim Buckley in the dialogue even though the two have yet to appear in the same episode.



Episode Quotes
Bart: I think I'd better walk you home, Countess. Otherwise, you're apt to destroy half the city.

Kingsley: Back in town so soon?
Bart: I just can't seem to get enough somehow--of San Francisco.

Bart: I'm a little near-sighted where Mr. Kingsley is concerned. I have trouble recognizing him with the red costume and the eight tiny reindeer.

Bart: There isn't a grifter alive who puts real gold in his gold brick.

Bart: Men who play for stakes like these don't buy people off, Mr. Sharpe. They kill them off.

Kingsley: Gentlemen, let's not talk about diamonds. We're ruining a perfectly good poker game.

Kingsley: You know, Maverick, it would have been cheaper if I'd let you stay in the game.



Analysis
Average episode which sees Bart get involved with two down on their luck French noblewomen while attempting to get revenge upon a scoundrel who had him shanghaied.
