Almost got hung myself once. Didn't care for it much. How about you? We'll leave you now. Don't want anyone to see me here... ...get the crazy notion that I was somehow connected with your... ...accidental death. On the other hand... ...it's not good for a man to be out here alone. The mind can do terrible things. Enjoy the company. Oh, snakes! Don't go without me, all right, OIlie? Lord... ...whatever I've done to piss you off... ...if you'd just get me out of this... ...let me know what it was, I'll rectify the situation. It had just been a shitty week for me from the beginning. It all started when I was heading into Crystal River... ... to take some money from the bank. I should've known there was bad luck on the horizon... ... when my horse got stolen... ... and I had to replace it with less than a thoroughbred. My luck had to change fast. The poker game of the century was four days away in St. Louis... ... and I was still $ short of the entrance fee. There was no way in hell I would miss that game. It wasn't only the half-million dollar pot to be won... ... though that kind of money certainly demands attention... ... but I needed to know how good I really was. Once and for all. I had to hole up here for the night. Business would have to wait till morning. - Hello, sir. - Hi, son. How much? On a day, week or month? Not to take care of him, how much to just take him. Permanently. This man wants to sell a burro. That burro ain't worth a dollar. You got yourself a deal. Here's your dollar. He doesn't eat much, but he's a regular jackass. And he always likes to be called Arthur. From the moment I slapped eyes on this hombre , I smelled trouble... ... and refried beans. Something else told me that this was not just a chance meeting. I'll see your and I'll raise you . I call. - What do you got? - Full house. That beats me. Damn. You are a lucky lady. Is this seat taken? It is now. My name is Annabelle Bransford. What do they call you? Bret Maverick. I'm pleased to meet you. I like the game the way it is. Well, I bring all sorts of pluses to the table. I hardly ever bluff and I never, ever cheat. I don't believe it. Neither do I. I like the game just the way it is. What good is an empty chair? Indeed. I'll bet I can change your mind. I promise that I will lose for at least an hour. Sounds good. My kind of player. We're playing five-card draw. Please, sit down. My name is Mrs. Annabelle Bransford. I caught that before, ma'am. Except the "Mrs." Ante up. I'm in. Same game. Chips, sir. You can lose as much as you want. Two hundred. - You did say you'd lose for an hour. - I'm a man of my word. I know. Place your bets. It's about time. I'll see you... ...and raise you . Slow down, I'm running low on chips. I'll see your bet and... ...I'll call. Two pair. Aces over queens. Lucky for me, I had sixes. Sorry. Nice pot. Broke your losing streak. That one shouldn't count. Beg your pardon? I don't think that hand should count. You got any logical reasons why not? My mind wasn't on the game. His mind wasn't on the... What's your name, son? Johnny. You got a last name? Johnny Hardin. What's your occupation? I'm a gunfighter. I have to assume since you're still alive... ...and playing cards with us... ...that you're good at it. Care to find out? Gentlemen, this hand definitely does not count. Take it all.
