Quotes

[first lines]
Bart Maverick: [narrating] The odds against filling an inside straight are 12-to-1, so a poker player isn't very wise to make the draw... unless, of course, he's feeling light-headed and the pot is at least 12 times the size of his bet. Which is exactly the way it happened. A thousand dollar bet had brought back 12,000. And I was doing the only thing that should ever be done with money... spending it.

Maverick: Game Of Chance
20 May 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"Game Of Chance" is about pearls. Bart meets a Countess while bidding on a horse. Over dinner, her pearls fall in the floor, and he helps her pick them up. He has them restrung. The jeweler offers him $40,000. Bart loans the Countess $10,000 with the pearls as collateral. The Countess and her uncle are con artists and disappear. The pearls she gave Bart are imitations. Bart calls on brother Bret to help him recover his money. They find the Countess, and she tries to pull the same trick on Bret. The women in Maverick are connivers and will do anything for money. Things get complicated, but the brothers manage to get Bart's money back. I am generally not drawn to the episodes involving European aristocrats, but the the ones featuring both brothers are always interesting. James Garner and Jack Kelly worked well together.
