Episode Quotes
Pappyism #1: There's two times in a man's life when he should be noble: when he's caught dealing seconds and when somebody slaps a lady.

Pappyism #2: What good's a yellow streak if you can't depend on it.

Bart: I still think you're being unreasonable.
Sheriff: Sure you do. You're used to stupid lawmen.

Bart: (to Tate) You have to be a thinker to call me tinhorn.

Tate: Looks like you're gettin' a little big for your britches, tinhorn.
Bart: Not at all, Mr. McKenna. They just shrunk since the last time I had 'em washed.

Bart: I never drink on Wednesday. It's an old family custom.
Tate: This here's a Friday.
Bart: You don't say. Time sure moves fast, doesn't it?

Sunday: I always say if a man doesn't work, he dies. Don't you agree with me, Mr. Maverick?
Bart: Oh, certainly.

Laura: Mr. Maverick, will you help me?
Bart: To do what--rob the place?

Laura: Mr. Maverick, I'd hate to have your kind of a mind.
Bart: Sometimes I'm not very fond of it myself.

Sheriff: You're what I call a thinker, Mr. Maverick.
Bart: That's the nicest thing anyone ever said about me, Sheriff.



Analysis
One of the better episodes of the mishmash that was sometimes Season Four. It also has one of the highest scum quotients of the series with Buddy Ebsen, Donald Barry, Virginia Christine, and Hampton Fancher all playing their parts as villains to the hilt.
