The game is no limit hold 'em. The Cadillac of poker.

Mike McDermott

Why do you think your moves are so grand and noble and I'm always the idiot piece of shit!

Worm

It's like the nature channel... you don't see Piranhas eating themselves, do you?

Mike McDermott

It's immoral to let a sucker keep his money.

Mike McDermott

Want a cookie?

Teddy KGB

That's a position raise, I call.

Teddy KGB

Taki: What did you think he had? Does he look like a man beaten by jacks?
Zizzo: Jacks are a monster compared to the crap you've played.
Taki: Fuuc you... fuck you...
Zizzo: Fuck Me? Fuck You!

I want him to think that I am pondering a call, but all I'm really thinkin' about it Vegas and the fuckin' Mirage.

Mike McDermott

That's my mo-fo.

Tyson Tidwell

Anyone else would have left you by now, but I'm sticking with you. And if I have to ride your ass like Zorro, you're gonna show me the money.

Rod Tidwell

Mike McDermott: Uh, you know what? I got my five grand here. That's just fine by me. I'm going home.
Teddy KGB: Fine. It's a fucking joke anyway. After all, I am paying you with your money.
Mike McDermott: What did you say?
Teddy KGB: Your money... I am still up grand... from this last time I stick it in you.
Mike McDermott: [Narrating] They're trying to goad me, trying to own me. But this isn't a gunfight. It's not about pride or ego. It's only about money. I can leave now, even with Grama and KGB... and halfway to paying Petrovsky back. That's the safe play. I told Worm you can't lose what you don't put in the middle. But you can't win much either.
Mike McDermott: Deal.

I got a shelf life of ten years, tops. My next contract's gotta bring me the dollars that'll last me and mine a long time. S-it, I'm out of this sport in 5 years. What's my family gonna live on? Huh?
