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

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

Mike McDermott

Are you satisfied now, Teddy? Because I can keep busting you up all night if you like.

In "Confessions of a Winning Poker Player," Jack King said, "Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career." It seems true to me, cause walking in here, I can hardly remember how I built my bankroll, but I can't stop thinking about the way I lost it.

Homeless Guy #1: It's a time machine... I know it's a time machine...
Christopher Gardner: [narrating] This machine in my lap? It is not a time machine.

I'm sure you guys were talking about pirogies and snow but let's cut that out.

Worm

Like my uncle Les used to say, "When the money is gone, it's time to move on." So enjoy it, you secret handshaking assholes.

Mike McDermott: You comin' up?
Lester 'Worm' Murphy: No, I've been standin' out here all this time just to say hi.
Mike McDermott: All right, listen, things haven't been that smooth on the homefront so, you know, tone it down a little, all right?
Lester 'Worm' Murphy: Tone done what, motherfucker?

Worm: Now, what did I ever do to that guy?
Mike McDermott: You fucked his mother.

Nyet! Nyet! No More! No! Not tonight! This son of bitch, all night he, "Check. Check. Check." He trap me!

Teddy KGB

Cal Hockley: God, not those finger paintings again. They certainly were a waste of money.
Rose: The difference between Cal's taste in art and mine is that I have some. They're fascinating. It's like being inside a dream or something. There's truth but no logic.

[narrating] This part of my life... this part right here? This part is called "being stupid."
