    • Bret: Now let's make our bet. I say that in those 25 cards, that you dealt, from a pack that you shuffled and cut, there are five pat hands - not in regular order, you understand, but the five pat hands are there. Do you believe that?

      Bret: I'll bet another five hundred - and Bill Gregg's life - that there is.
