  • Quotes

    • (after the introductions)
      Paul: I have to pee.
      Kevin: You have to pee? Excellent!

    • David: I got lucky that Scott Stapp was a really terrible player.

    • David: The lesson... What did I have, 7 beers last night?... is to have seven beers.

    • Kevin: There are still 52 reasons why any one of them could win it. Let's get back to the championship tail action.

    • Kevin: The grand daddy of all hands is called a royal flush. That's the five highest cards in sequential order. Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace. All of the same suit. And that is as good as it gets.

    • (in taped interview, on his win)
      Willie: My game was one of the funnest things I've done in my entire life.

    • Kevin: (on Willie) And he just wants to play.
      Phil: Yeah, he's... It's what's known as tilting right now after losing that pocket Kings. He's just playing a little bit aggressively. More aggressively than he would've otherwise.

    • David: Let me rub my nipple for good luck. (audience heckling)
      David: (to the audience) It's what I do!

    • David: (ordering his drinks) Hey Robert, can you use your fancy magic loudstick and get me a beer?
      Robert: (beckoning the waitress) Cocktails!

    • (in taped interview)
      Richard: The adrenaline. Your heart's pumping. Who knew you would care that much? I was exhausted.

    • Willie: We found out that all the winners had been the ones drinking at their game.
      Phil: Is that right?
      Kevin: All the winners were tanked?
      Willie: Every winner was the one at their table who was drinking the most.

    • (after Richard was eliminated)
      Phil: Company for Willie.
      Willie: At least it was quick.

    • (after he says goodbye to David who was wearing nothing but a robe)
      Richard: I just hugged a naked man.

    • Richard: They're knocking the bald guys out one by one...
      Willie: I see David Cross out next.

    • David: I realize, as I'm sure everybody at home does, the mistake I made. I'm very well aware of it. I know what it is. It will not happen again. Well, I'll have a good laugh about it later. And with that, I fold.

    • Nicole: It is America and I can safely assume that I have learned absolutely nothing. About A, the game of Poker and B, my competitors.
      Kevin: She says she learned nothing and yet two great players eliminated before her. She, with the least experience, remains at the table.

    • Richard: (on Nicole) She's cuter than we are.
      Willie: True.
      Kevin: There's no question she's cuter.
      Phil: A lot cuter, in fact.

    • (in taped interview)
      Nicole: I like Poker. I like playing games. I like cards. That's all I got going for me. And a nice little outfit, that's all.

    • (in taped interview)
      Nicole: I don't have any tricks up my sleeve. I don't have any sleeves.

    • Nicole: I'm counting my kitty cat money. That's five more penises removed from milk cats. It's true. I promise, it's one of my charities.
      David: Wow! The orphans that I'm doing my charity for are gonna be psyched about that. (doing a kid's voice) What? No more milk? Oh, but a cat didn't have his [bleep] removed. That's alright. That's alright with me. I'm so cold.

    • David: What happened to my beer?
      Nicole: Did I drink yours?
      David: You did. She took it!
      Nicole: Sorry.

    • Kevin: David Cross, of course, is still wearing a bath robe and no one knows why. He does look cuter in it though.

    • (on a hand with both players catching trips of sixes on the river)
      Kevin: This is gonna get ugly before it gets pretty.

    • Kevin: Now, you have to understand Ben. Willie here wore the red shirt after being called "friend of Satan" so many times 'cos he thought it would bring him luck. Willie was the first knocked out on fairly bad play at the time. And of course my first thought was Ben's watching the show saying "I lost to this guy?".

    • David: The lesson is try to focus like really pay attention on what's going on. In addition to that, not overthink like try not to over-analyze. "He nodded his head. What does that mean? And she looked away." Try not to get wrapped up in that stuff.

    • Nicole: (seeking guidance on whether she should call) Oh Phil! Phil!
      Phil: (off-stage) I love to see her scream my name aloud like that. (laughs)

    • Paul: (after losing his last hand of trips of sixes to Nicole's straight on the river) All I can tell you is that 6-6-6 is Satan.

    • David: I had Thanksgiving dinner with Ben Affleck and J.Lo. This is what they served. This is what they served. It's true.
      Kevin: Well, you could serve it to your favorite charity.
      David: Nice segue. Good job.
      Kevin: I got that in segue school.

    • Phil: Who is this girl?
      Kevin: I think we should stop referring to her as "the inexperienced Nicole".
      Paul: She has fooled everyone.
      Kevin: We have all been hustled!
