Bart Maverick: Uh, yes Sheriff.
Sheriff Sam Shadley: Who owns them cards?
Bart Maverick: Uh, this gentleman.

Brent Maverick: Well, I haven't got time to argue. I've got a little surprise planned for those characters. The last thing they expect to see is me. It'll give me a chance to sneak around, and take 'em from behind.
