Bret is picked clean & stranded in Sunny Acres by the burg's arrogant banker, so he puts together an M Team of con artists to take down & embarrass the handle-barred buzzard in Denver, while Bret sits whittling & rocking in a chair on a shady Sunny Acres porch, poor-mouthing all by-passers that he's "just working on" a plan. The small-town banker is way out of his league in silver-rich Denver with seductive Sam Crawford, intimidating Big Mike, slicksters Gentleman Jack & Dandy Jim etc. as Maverick's operatives in this classic episode. Written by
"I'm working on it!," Bret insists 10 times as Brother Bart, Dandy Jim Buckley, Gentleman Jack Darby, Big Mike McComb, Samantha Crawford and Cindy Lou Brown join him in a sting operation against an unscrupulous banker. The whole gang is here, and this episode is a favorite among Maverick fans. Bret ensures the townspeople that he will get his $15,000 back. Bart arrives on the stagecoach using the name "Mansfield" and initiates a scheme involving worthless stock. Samantha does her part, and Bart gives her a kiss. Ironically, the banker asks, "If you can't trust your banker, who can you trust?" Someone asks Bret if whittling is his hobby, and he replies, "No. Money is." The Mavericks may not drink, but they do light up an occasional cigar. Produced by Roy Huggins. Story by Douglas Heyes.
