    • QUOTES (52)

      • Dave: Welcome to Celebrity Poker Showdown. Now, this is the only show on TV that sucking out and flopping the nuts are activities the whole family can enjoy together.

      • Dave: Only one of you can win because this is still a dog-eat-dog society. This in not communist China yet.

      • Phil: It's gonna be a great game tonight.
        Dave: It's a very good crowd. A wonderful wonderful group.
        Phil: And at least half of them know how to play poker.
        Dave: That's true. Which is exactly our stat right here. Half of us can know how to play poker.

      • Phil: I always get blamed for the losses. But never credited for the wins.
        Dave: That's the nature of the business.

      • Ricki: I'll raise. How much do I raise?
        Robert: The minimum raise is to 400 to all your chips.
        Ricki: 500.
        Neil: I think 400 would've been plenty.

      • (on taped interview)
        Ricki: My dad taught me at very early age how to play poker. I also remember being underage and him sneaking me into Atlantic City casinos.

      • (on taped interview)
        Ricki: I've been known to bluff and pull it off once in a while. I'm a good gambler. I'm a really good gambler. That, I think, is where my strength lies.

      • Dave: Welcome back to Palms Casino in Las Vegas where 21 is the drinking age and the retirement age.

      • Kevin: I was playing blackjack yesterday at the casino. And this has never happened to me before. I won one hundred and twenty-five dollars.

      • Neil: (to Kevin who sipped his daiqirui) You have a tell, my friend. WHen you sip your girlie drink after betting, I know that you have it.

      • (after winning his first pot)
        Kevin: That's it. I gotta go.

      • Phil: Ricki's got the best hand with a pair of Jacks.
        Dave: Kid dynamite, Phil!
        Phil: She's got kid dynamite. She bets 600. (Macaulay folds) And the dynamites exploded. Ricki takes it down.

      • Audience Member: All-in!
        Kevin: Silence.

      • Phil: Folding out of turn is not a good play. (to Dave) I think even you can master that one.

      • (on taped interview)
        Neil: This is my main motivation in trying to win. And that is to stay out of the Losers' Lounge. And the reason is to stay away from Fooley is his name? He strikes me as creepy.

      • Kevin: Do you think that was a good thing to do?
        Robert: If I could play poker, I'd be sitting there.
        Kevin: If I knew how to hold a mic, I'd be able to stand over there.

      • Phil: That little white disc on the table is called the dealer button. That person will be last to act on every round of betting. That's the best position to be on the table.
        Dave: Because the last person to act has the most information. They get to size up their opponents.
        Phil: Exactly. I'm so happy you've listening to me, Dave.

      • (earlier, Kevin asked a different dealer the same question)
        Kevin: (to the dealer) Bobby, do you ever get... anybody tell you you look like Pat Boone? You get the Pat Boone thing a lot?
        Bobby: You're the second person today.

      • (on taped interview)
        Sara: I'm very competitive. I definitely have the personality that can easily be obsessed with this kind of game.

      • (on taped interview)
        Sara: I get a little scared when somebody's playing very aggressive against me. Don't tell this to anybody of the players.

      • Kevin: OK, so I'm not a very good player.
        Neil: I'm sure you're good at things. What're you good at? What're you best at?
        Kevin: Losing.

      • Audience Member: Go Ricki!
        Kevin: (doing a little dance) Go Ricki! Go Ricki!

      • (after Kevin won a big pot)
        Phil: He's gone from worst to first.
        Dave: And deservedly takes a sip from his strawberry daiquiri.
        Phil: If you guys at home played this hand and doubled up, then you played it very well.
        Dave: And for you kids at home, the daiquiri is a good starter drink.

      • (after being bluffed by Neil on the turn)
        Kevin: You can have that crap pot, my friend.
        Neil: I'll take it. Thank you.

      • Kevin: Macaulay's just waiting to make his move. I know that.
        Macaulay: Biding my time.
        Kevin: Biding your time.

      • (on taped interview)
        Macaulay: I think my best asset for the game is just always getting pocket Aces. That's gonna be my plan and you know, I'm usually at my best when that happens.

      • (Before the turn, Kevin proposed that everyone checks from then on)
        Neil: (after Kevin plays with his chips on the turn) We check from now on, what is this?
        Kevin: It's a thing called poker, my friend.

      • (after Ricki Lake got pocket Aces)
        Phil: Oh, she's really acting it up now. A lot of Hollywood going in on this hand.
        Ricki: Eight hundred.
        Phil: She's gonna bet 800 and try to look unhappy doing it but Mac has no hand.

      • Kevin: I was out in front of the casino and this guy goes up to me and said, "Hey pal, you've got five hundred bucks. My wife's gotta go to the emergency room, you know, for admittance fee." And I said, "How do I know if I give you that five hundred bucks that you're not gonna spend it on gambling?" He said, "Oh, I've got gambling money." Let's take a break. We'll be right back.

      • Neil: I hope America understands my pain. (folds)
        Audience: Awwwwww...
        Neil: Thank you, America, for understanding my pain.

      • (with Sara on her way to the Losers' Lounge)
        Dave: We better clean up and get our trousers back on, Phil.

      • Dave: Your friend Ricki that finally put you out.
        Sara: I know.
        Dave: That's gonna add some tension to the friendship.
        Sara: It's true. I don't think I'll ever be able to let that go.

      • Dave: That good news is you're still getting $5000 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a great charity. They do a lot of great work around LA. Raising money for breast cancer. Not for, really. Against it, really.
        Sara: Exactly.
        Dave: They're really pretty steadfastly against breast cancer.
        Sara: I vote No. If you're gonna pick a side, vote No.

      • Dave: Why don't we go back at the table and see how your former friend Ricki Lake is doing.
        Sara: Sounds like a good idea.

      • (on one of the chip counts)
        Phil: Poor Neil Flynn is down to a chip, a chair, and a prayer. He's got $100 left.

      • Audience: All-in!
        Neil: (left with $100) No, it's time to tighten up.

      • Kevin: Who's in?
        Neil: (with a $100-chip left) I'm a bystander.

      • Phil: Our two picks have been eliminated back-to-back, Dave. Here comes Neil Flynn.
        Dave: That means there's four losers in the Losers' Lounge.

      • (Neil Flynn coming into the Losers' Lounge)
        Dave: You were my pick to win.
        Neil: In a sense, I was my pick to win.

      • Kevin: Remember Sara and Neil?
        Macaulay: Yeah, I do.
        Kevin: They were great people. Great people. Good people. Good people.
        Ricki: They're wishing us well now.

      • Kevin: Remember when Neil had just a $100-chip left.
        Neil: (from the Losers' Lounge) He misses me. Can you tell?

      • (on taped interview)
        Kevin: A kid like Macaulay obviously doesn't have much experience in the world. He's had a privileged life. Apparently all his brothers look just like him.

      • (on taped interview)
        Kevin: My strategy against Ricki Lake is to distract her by bringing up dysfunctional topics hoping that she'll forget about the card game and start taking questions from the audience.

      • (on taped interview)
        Kevin: Even if I lose, I'm staying at the table. I'm not gonna take that walk.

      • Dave: It's Kevin Nealon against Ricki Lake. Kevin, you're probably as startled as America is right now.
        Kevin: I gotta tell, I'm beside myself. I never thought I would come this far or it would be me and Ricki, mano-y-mano.

      • Dave: (holding up the silver chip) Now, only one of you can win this 'cause we can only afford one of these.

      • Kevin: (on his charity, The Fund for Animals) Well, you know what, it's taxidermy then they spay and neuter them. It's a waste of money. A big waste of money.
        Dave: You can never be too safe.
        Ricki: (on her charity, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy) And I'm trying to spay and neuter teenagers.

      • (on taped interview)
        Ricki: I'm really a sore winner. I'm really competitive. I don't wanna make myself look bad. I wanna be gracious. I wanna be humble. Man, it's gonna be fun to rub it in their faces.

      • (after Kevin called Ricki's all-in)
        Robert: Alright, let's see both hands, please. Turn 'em up. Show and tell. Don't be bashful.

      • (after Kevin caught the only card that could win it for him on the river)
        Dave: (to Ricki) He took you to the river and he drowned you there.

      • (Ricki Lake's charity is the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy)
        Dave: You still get $5,000 to ruin a few teenagers' weekends.
        Ricki: Thank you. Thank you very much.

      • Kevin Nealon: So what lake are you named after? There's no Ricki Lake, is there?
        Ricki Lake: There's no Ricki Lake. Lake Superior at Poker!

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • (on taped interview)
        Neil: I think Ricki will do well if there's a scandal that breaks out at the table. Then I'd be the first one chanting her name.

        Neil was describing Ricki Lake's talk show The Ricki Lake Show, which ran for 11 years. It focused on sensational topics, and the live audience was known to chant her name during the show.

      • (after Macaulay goes all-in)
        Phil: (to Sara) If Macaulay loses this pot, you wouldn't be home alone long. Oh that's so bad.
        Sara: Really bad. I may have lost, but I didn't make that joke.

        Home Alone, the movie which launched Macaulay Culkin into child superstardom, was about a kid who was left alone in his home while the whole family went away on holiday vacation.

      • (Kevin preparing his bet)
        Kevin: Three purple. Four purple. Four purple and how many reds? Robert?
        Robert: Whatever you like.
        Kevin: What is the double of that? What is the... Four reds.
        Neil: (from the Losers' Lounge) Go Forrest!

        Forrest Gump, whose title character was played by Tom Hanks, was about a man with an IQ of 75 and his epic journey through life amidst the historical events in his country.

      • Dave: It's Bravo. They wanted six gay guys on the other show, but they had to cut one.

        Dave was talking about Bravo's reality show Queer Eye hosted by five gay guys collectively known as The Fab Five.
