Maverick (1994) Poster


Mel Gibson: Bret Maverick



  • Maverick : Oh, you sure do pick the spots.

    Joseph : Yeah, I know. You know the next time you people come and drive us off our land I'm gonna find a nice piece of swamp that's so God-awful, maybe then you'll leave us the hell alone.

  • Maverick : [talking to the village thieves]  The man who'll blow your brains out is Marshal Zane Cooper. You've probably heard of him, I know what you're thinking, he's old and decrepit, gums his food AND his women, but he can still shoot straight.

    Maverick : After you is ugly Annie Bransford. When she was born, she came out backwards and no one noticed. Hell, when she was little, her parents had to tie a pork chop around her neck so the dog would play with her. When she's making love, she has to pretend SHE'S someone else!

  • Maverick : See that hawk? You know what it means?

    Annabelle : No. What does it mean?

    Maverick : Nothing. But you didn't know that did you?

  • Maverick : [while unbuttoning his shirt]  Now, it's time for you to do something that I want

    Annabelle : How dare you. I am a lady. Not if you were a hundred years old, not if I was a hundred years old...

    Maverick : Oh shut up. I don't want to go to bed with you, lady.

    Annabelle : [disappointed]  Why not?

    Maverick : Why not? I'd be too frightened. God knows what parts of me you'd steal. I'd wake up with all sorts of things missing.

  • Maverick : Lord... whatever I've done to piss you off... if you could just get me out of this and somehow let me know what it was I promise to rectify the situation.

  • Annabelle : How'd you know I was bluffing? I didn't do any of my tells. I didn't shuffle my cards, I didn't pull my hair, I didn't even flick my teeth.

    Maverick : You held your breath. If you'd been excited, you would have started breathing harder.

    Annabelle : I did not.

    [Looks at the Commodore] 

    Annabelle : Did I?

    [Commodore nods] 

    Annabelle : [Annabelle looks at Angel]  Did I?

    [Angel nods] 

    Annabelle : [Annabelle looks at the dealer]  Did I?

    [the dealer nods] 

    Annabelle : Well, I'll just pretend I was playin' with someone else's money.

    Maverick : That shouldn't be too hard.

    [Annabelle gets up. Cooper leans toward her] 

    Zane Cooper : [whispering]  You did hold your breath, ma'am.

  • Zane Cooper : Well, Bret, you know what we ended up with? A half a million dollar silk shirt.

    Maverick : Nope, we ended up with a quarter million dollar silk shirt, because my old pappy always used to say "Don't put the chicken in front of"... no, wait "Never cut the cards before"... no, wait, "Don't put all you eggs in one basket".

    Zane Cooper : Now that, I said.

  • Annabelle : Well look at this. Here's a lot of money and your gun is six feet away.

    Zane Cooper , Maverick : Eight.

    Annabelle : What a remarkable family.

    Maverick : How'd she - how'd she figure that?

    Annabelle : Well, you all don't have the exclusive on tells! You both have the same height, the same build, you both talk the same, you both kiss the same, you both draw your guns the same, and you both sing the same wrong words to 'Amazing Grace'.

    Zane Cooper , Maverick : Do not.

  • Annabelle : There isn't a Mrs. Maverick is there?

    Maverick : Oh I'm sure I would have remembered.

  • Maverick : I've just noticed something.

    Annabelle : What?

    Maverick : You can't help it can you? You are irresistible.

  • Maverick : Oh, what the hell! I feel like being silly. I'll call... Uh...

    [clearing his throat] 

    Maverick : It's just a pair of sixes. If you can beat that you got me licked, and that's not a totally unpleasant prospect.

  • Annabelle : Well, they're Indians. They probably just stole the ponies!

    Maverick : Not everybody's like you, Mrs. Bransford.

    Annabelle : What is it with you and Indians anyway?

    Maverick : Oh, nothing. I try and shoot one a day, if possible, before noon. How 'bout you, Coop? I figure it's their fault for being on our land before we got here.

  • Maverick : So, are you gonna miss me?

    Annabelle : Are you gonna miss me?

    Maverick : You are gonna miss me.

    Annabelle : how do you know that?

    Annabelle : I was not... maybe I was.

  • Maverick : Well, now, I bring all sorts of plusses to the table. I hardly ever bluff and I never ever cheat.

  • Maverick : My old pappy always used to say, "there is no more deeply satisfying religious experience... than cheatin' on a cheater."

    Zane Cooper : I never said that once. You've been misquoting me all your life.

    Maverick : What, we're going to quibble over fine points?

    Zane Cooper : You never even get close. Give me some credit.

  • Maverick : I've only got one gun, that's 6 bullets. They're six, that's 36 bullets. Maybe they've got two guns, that's 72 bullets, maybe they've got rifles...

    Annabelle : You're babbling.

    Maverick : No I wasn't.

  • Stable Boy : [Yelling]  Pa, this man wants to know if you want to buy a burro.

    Stable owner : That burro ain't worth a dollar!

    Maverick : Well, sir, I say you got yourself a deal.

    Stable owner : Here's your dollar.

    Maverick : Well, he doesn't eat much, but he's a regular jackass, and hee-haw, hee-haw, he hawlways likes to be called Arthur.

  • Maverick : [narrating, when first meeting Angel]  From the moment I slapped eyes on this hombre, I smelled trouble. And re-fried beans. Something else was telling me that this was not just a "chance" meeting.

  • Annabelle : What kind of animal are you?

    Maverick : Vulture.

  • Maverick : I don't know why I kept the rest of the money in the satchel, though.

    Zane Cooper : I do.

    Maverick : So do I. Sure will be a whole lot of fun getting it back.

  • Annabelle : [speaking in a very southern drawl]  A shouldn't be doin' this.

    Maverick : You're just standing in the hallway, Mrs. Bransford, I think that's still legal in this state.

  • Maverick : You tend to breathe hard when you get excited.

    Annabelle : How did you - oh.

  • [an old man walks up to the wagon, and Maverick tries to help him up] 

    Driver : No, no. I'm the driver.

    Maverick : Oh. Are you all right?

    Driver : Why does everybody always ask me that?
