Baretta: My old man always said, 'Don't shoot no pool unless you got somethin' to win.
Billy: Yeah and he also said, 'That when you're down grab your stick and keep strokin'.
Baretta: Watch out cuz the old whipper is gonna keep on strokin'. Let me in there to make a three ball combination. A deuce up in the corner. Close, close but that's only good in horseshoes.
Mimi: Oh poor booby, I expected to find you moping in a corner somewhere crying in your beer. And here you are grabbing your stick and stroking.
Baretta: I guess I don't feel that bad afterall. You remember we was talkin' about the big tough question about why. Well I ain't got all the whys and I know my old man wasn't around very long but I know him and me aren't gonna be any closer than we are now.
Mimi: And you and I are never gonna be closer.
Baretta: You got a lota class kid.
Billy: Yeah talking about class your old man said, 'He wasn't gonna leave you very much', but what he did leave you was a good name, you better get outta here before you lose it.
