Gargan: I've never met the man but he has a reputation for fair dealing. That's why I don't trust him.
Charles Ingalls: Why not?
Gargan: Well, folks with good reputations can cheat from you a lot easier than folks with bad reputations. You understand?

Bret Harper: I won't make any promises, and I won't plead. But I will try.
