Stephanie Malone: Is this all?
Bart Maverick: You sound like you're the one who's being robbed.
Stephanie Malone: What kind of poker player are you?
Bart Maverick: I was considered quite good by the gentleman who used to own most of that $800.
Stephanie Malone: I expected a lot more.
Bart Maverick: If I'd have known you were waiting, I might've stayed in the game a little longer, but if you're disappointed, you could always return the money.
Stephanie Malone: I will eventually. I'm considering this a loan.
Bart Maverick: Then, I might warn you. My interest rates are high, six percent.

Maverick: A Tale Of Three Cities
11 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Pat Crowley robs Bart so she can pay off a debt owed by her father. Sheriff Ray Teal hates to eat alone and lets Bart watch. The "three cities" are Gold Flats, Brotherly and Hampton Center. The Ladies Aid in Brotherly is having a luncheon, and each lady is bringing her specialty. Bart presents himself as a reformed gambler in order to get fed. He charms the women while recognizing Pat by her ring and her perfume. Bart was a ladies' man and a good one to learn from. While incarcerated, the Ladies Aid brings him breakfast and a comfortable bed. They bring him an easy chair, cigars and a copy of "Lorna Doone." Looker Pat Crowley is a sweetie: "Bart, I don't want you to get hurt!"
