Melba, why do you do that?
So it'll fit, stupid.
No, I'm not talking about that. What I'm asking is... do you, uh, have to cheat at everything?
Yes. At... solitaire. I've yet to see you play one game of solitaire without cheating.
Look, you're just cheating yourself, don't you understand? You'll be the loser, no one else but yourself! ...You've ruined the puzzle, now, that doesn't go in there.
Six stacks, is that right, Shooter?
Well, we've been playing 30 hours... uh, that rate, six thousand, that makes roughly, uh, $200 an hour. Thank you for the entertainment, gentlemen. I am particularly grateful to Lancey, here; it's been a rewarding experience to watch a great artist at work. Thank you for the privilege, sir.
Well now, you're quite welcome, son. It's a pleasure to meet someone who understands that to the true gambler, money is never an end in itself, it's simply a tool, as a language is to thought. Good evening, uh, ...Mr. Slade.
Good evening, Mr. Howard.
