You lost everyone's money, my money. I think you are losing it.

Jess: Are you working an angle?
Nicky: I wouldn't trust him if I were you.
Jess: But I should trust you?

Nicky: I cannot believe you lied to me.
Jess: You can't believe I lied?
Nicky: I can't believe it.
Jess: Oh, that's so rich from you.
Nicky: That's what you want to say to me?
Jess: Yeah, cause you're always lying, Nicky, and now we're dead.

Farhad: Who's the girl?
Nicky: Her name is Jess. She's our intern.
Farhad: You hitting that?
Jess: Hi, I'm right here!
Nicky: No, Farhad, I'm not hitting that.
Farhad: You should hit that.
Nicky: Again, I’m right here!

I can convince anyone of anything. I once convinced a man that a warehouse was the Federal Reserve. So I'm good.

Nicky

Jess: I know you're doing something big. I want in. Can we skip the part where I lead you to believe there is some earth-shattering hump in the works?
Nicky: There's no earth-shattering hump in the works?!
Jess: No
Nicky: I don't even get thinly veiled allure?
Jess: No
Nicky: That's some of my favorite s***.
Jess: I'm sorry.

Nicky

Jess: Oh my god! It's my husband.
Nicky: Whoa!
Jared: Give me one reason why I shouldn't do it.
Nicky: I'm drawing a blank.
Jared: What?
Jess: He's onto us.
Nicky: First of all, you've gotta wait until she gets my pants off and then you gotta give me a chance to run. That's how you get the money. Never drop the con. Die with the lie.
Jess: Then why'd you come up here?
Nicky: Professional curiosity and I like boobs. I figured it was a win-win.

There's two kinds of people in this world. There's hammers and there's nails. You decide which one you want to be. There's no room for heart in this game. It will get you killed.

Nicky

Jess: What about the big con?
Nicky: Oh, you mean the one where we make so much money we all retire?

At the end of the day, this is a game of focus.
