    • Ken Watanabe: Practically the entire Japanese community figures internment was wrong and unnecessary, but you're going to find a lot of others who find taking money for what they went through, is adding one disgrace to another.

    • Mrs. Pynchon: I can handle Mr. Rossi with my brace on my leg and one hand tied behind my back.

    • Adam: You play the ponies just like you play the stock market.

      Lou: Blue chips? The horse and jockey with the best combined record?

      Adam: Is that how you play the market?

      Lou: I don't play the market. I thought that's what you meant.

      Adam: No, no. You look for a jockey or horse with one or more of the letter X and then you lay a heavy bet.

      Lou: Thanks a lot, Adam!

      Adam: Hey, it worked with Xerox.

    Allusions (1)

    • Mrs. Pynchon: Swollen hands and dragging feet. It sounds like a Fats Waller lyric. Jazz pianist and singer Fats Waller (1904-1943) was famous for songs with unusual titles such as "Your Feet's Too Big" and "All That Meat And No Potatoes".
