[to avoid a deadlocked jury, Maverick bets he can prove Pike's logic is flawed using a card trick]

Pike: Five pat hands in these 25 cards? No... No, I don't.

Bret Maverick: I'll bet another 500 and Bill Gregg's life that there is.

Price: Oh, wait a second, Maverick. You're a gambler and can risk your cash, but you can't put up a man's life against...

Pike: Hold on, wait a minute. Wait. This is between Maverick and me - he named it. What do you mean Gregg's life?

Pike: You're going to make five pat hands out of these 25 cards - that's straights, flushes and full houses. Can I shuffle 'em again?

[last lines]

Pike: Well, you made me look pretty foolish.

Bret Maverick: I'm sorry, Pike. I was just betting you were a pretty good man and a fair one. How about a little poker? I can go back to business now.
