Ace Rothstein: [to Sherbert] I don't give a shit who he's connected to. Tell him to take his fuckin' feet off the table. What's he think this is, a goddamn sawdust joint?
Billy Sherbert: [to cowboy] Sir, would you mind taking your feet off the table and put your shoes on, please?
Cowboy: Yeah, I would mind. I'm havin' a bad night.
Billy Sherbert: Fuckin' asshole won't budge.

Don Ward: You might regret this, Mr. Rothstein.
Ace Rothstein: I'll regret it even more if I keep you on.
Don Ward: This is not the way to treat people.
Ace Rothstein: Listen, if you didn't know you're bein' scammed, you're too fuckin' dumb to keep this job. If you did know, you were in on it. Either way, you're out. Get out! Go on.

Amy Rothstein: I don't want to go to Europe. I want to go see The Elephant Man.
Lester Diamond: We're not gonna go see any fuckin' elephants, okay?

That's a lot of money to be counting out in public.

Billy Sherbert

I think in all fairness, I should explain to you exactly what it is that I do. For instance, tomorrow morning ill get up nice and early, take a walk down over to the bank and... walk in and see and uh... if you don't have my money for me, I'll... crack your fuckin' head wide open in front of everybody in the bank. And just about the time that I'm comin' out of jail, hopefully, you'll be coming out of your coma. And guess what? I'll split your fuckin' head open again. 'Cause I'm fuckin' stupid. I don't give a fuck about jail. That's my business. That's what I do.

Nicky Santoro

Back home, they put me in jail for what I'm doing. Here, they give me awards.

Ace Rothstein

In the casino, the cardinal rule is to keep them playing and to keep them coming back. The longer they play, the more they lose, and in the end, we get it all.

Ace Rothstein

Running a casino is like robbing a bank with no cops around. For guys like me, Las Vegas washes away your sins. It's like a morality car wash.

Ace Rothstein

Nicky Santoro: You better hope he gives me a fuckin' name soon, or I'm gonna give him yours, Frank.
Frank Marino: Yeah, thanks a lot.

When it looked like they could get 25years to life in prison just for skimming a casino, sick or no fuckin' sick, you knew people were going to get clipped.

Nicky Santoro

He was a young kid from the casino. Nice kid, bright boy. What balls on this fuckin' kid. The next day I fired him.

Ace Rothstein

The coppers blamed me for every little thing out here, and I mean every little fuckin' thing. If a guy fuckin' slipped on a fuckin' banana peel, they blamed me.
