Quotes

  • Lancey Howard  

    You're good, kid, but as long as I'm around, you're only second best.

  • Shooter  

    Melba, why do you do that?

  • Melba  

    So it'll fit, stupid.

  • Shooter  

    No, I'm not talking about that. What I'm asking is... do you, uh, have to cheat at everything?

  • Melba  

    At everything?

  • Shooter  

    Yes. At... solitaire. I've yet to see you play one game of solitaire without cheating.

  • Shooter  

    Hey, why are you doing this? It can't be for money.

  • Slade  

    Yes, for my kind of money, gut money. I wanta to see that smug old bastard gutted. Gutted!

  • Shooter  

    Like he gutted you.

  • Slade  

    Yes, that's right, that's right!

  • Lancey Howard  

    Gets down to what it's all about, doesn't it? Making the wrong move at the right time.

  • Cincinnati Kid  

    Is that what it's all about?

  • Lancey Howard  

    Like life, I guess. You're good, kid, but as long as I'm around you're second best. You might as well learn to live with it.

  • Cincinnati Kid  

    Listen, Christian, after the game, I'll be The Man. I'll be the best there is. People will sit down at the table with you, just so they can say they played with The Man. And that's what I'm gonna be, Christian.

  • Christian  

    I know.
