    • QUOTES (11)

      • Andamo: Now listen, I don't mind ordinary system players, but when they carry books and wear glasses...
        Lucky: That only means they don't see well.

      • Prudence: My name's Prudence. If you laugh, everything stops right here.
        Lucky: I never laugh at customers. Only with them. Are you?
        Prudence: Prudent? What do you think?

      • Lucky: Go ahead. I won't tell anyone.
        Rovacs: Oh, I don't drink on duty. Except in the line of duties. (takes the glass)
        Lucky: Of course.

      • Lucky: Shh. I thought I heard a launch.
        Prudence: Well, if I can't compete with launches, I'd better take you someplace where there aren't any.
        Lucky: Like where?
        Prudence: I have a coffeepot at my place.
        Lucky: I'm also disturbed by coffeepots.
        Prudence: Then I won't plug it in right away.

      • Prudence: He's a very smart man.
        Lucky: He's an educated man. There's a difference.

      • Prudence: I always get romantic at dawn.
        Lucky: It isn't dawn yet.
        Prudence: I always get romantic just before dawn.

      • Lucky: Check the faculty of Wilbur College. Find out if a Professor Olander is in the math department.
        Rovacs: Why?
        Lucky: I have a feeling the good professor is taking me.
        Rovacs: Hah. You want me to help stop him?
        Lucky: Well, I don't mind being broken, but not by a professor. Think of my reputation.
        Rovacs: I often do. It gives me the shudders.

      • Andamo: He's a crook. That's it and that's all.
        Lucky: That's it?
        Andamo: And that's all. I'll give you eight to five on it.
        Lucky: Those are very nice odds.

      • Andamo: What do you want? It's a boat.
        Lucky: You don't say.
        Andamo: It's the ocean, it's full of boats. Fishing boat, maybe.
        Lucky: At this time of night?
        Andamo: Don't look at me, argue with the fish.

      • Prudence: Mr. Lucky... what made you become a gambler?
        Lucky: The same thing that made you become a woman. It's the way things are. Never try to change the way things are. It's a sucker's bet.
        Prudence: But you love money.
        Lucky: Well, not really. I happen to be fond of paying my income tax.
        Prudence: Money's a wonderful thing to have.
        Lucky: In the right place.
        Prudence: I've got a lot of it.
        Lucky: That's one of the places.

      • Prudence: That's, um, sort of a proposition.
        Lucky: It's a very attractive one. Would I get a diamond-studded collar?
        Prudence: Would you wear it?
        Lucky: (shakes his head) Would you?
        Prudence: Maybe. Depends who was holding the leash.
        Lucky: I don't like leashes from either end.
        Prudence: And I thought gamblers liked a sure thing.
        Lucky: A sure thing is nice and safe. It keeps you out of trouble. But it's very, very dull. Could I interest you in a wide-open contest?
        Prudence: You couldn't keep me away.
