The feds were watching Nicky play golf for so long that they ran out of gas.

Whoever it was, they put the dynamite under the passenger's side. But what they didn't know, what nobody outside the factory knew, was that that model car was made with a metal plate under the driver's seat. It's the only thing that saved my life.

[narrating] Well, it wasn't long before what I was afraid was gonna happened, happen. Nicky managed to get himself banned from every casino in Las Vegas, and from then on i couldn't be seen anywhere near him.

Ace Rothstein: Listen to me very carefully. There are three ways of doing things around here: the right way, the wrong way, or the way that I do it. You understand?
Don Ward: I do understand that. I'll get right on it. And thank you.
Ace Rothstein: Don't thank me. Just do it. You're the slots manager. I shouldn't have to tell you this.
Don Ward: Dang, you are right Mr. Rothstein. I am so sorry.

Nicky Santoro: I've been trying to reach you. You're tougher to get than the president.
Charlie Clark: Well, I've been busy.
Nicky Santoro: Yeah, the least you could do is return my phone calls, though.

Pat Webb: Are we certain that you want the gamin' control board eyeballing your record and your gangster pals like Nicky Santoro?
Ace Rothstein: I think you're way out of line talking to me like that. What your saying is libelous, and you're in no position to challenge my expertise.

Ace Rothstein: All right, I'm gonna give you a choice. You can either have the money or you can walk out of here. You can't have both. What do you want?
Winner: I just wanna get outta here.
Ace Rothstein: Don't forget to tell your friends what happens if they fuck around in here. You understand?
Winner: I'm sorry. I made a bad mistake.
Ace Rothstein: You're fuckin' right, you made a bad mistake. 'Cause if you come back here - we catch either one of you - we're gonna break your fuckin' heads and you won't walk out of here. You see that fuckin' saw? We're gonna use it. You don't fuck around in this place. You got it?

Nicky Santoro: What's takin' so long over there?
Frank Marino: This peter's a motherfucker.
Jack Hardy: It's workin'. Just keep workin' it. It's comin'.
Nicky Santoro: Gotta learn how to open these fuckin' things so you won't have to take 'em.

Normally, my prospects of coming back alive from a meeting with Nicky were 99 out of 100. But this time, when I heard him say a couple of hundred yards down the road, I gave myself 50-50.

Ace Rothstein

That black book's a joke. It's only got two names in it. And one of them's still Al Capone.

Nicky Santoro

[narrarating] Me? Thats why The Bosses sent me out here. They wanted me to make sure none of the other crews robbed the joint. Like these two fuckin' balloon heads over here. They were gonna try to bang us outta two hundred fuckin' grand? Yeah, right, I'm sure.
