    • QUOTES (3)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: A nice, friendly Saturday night poker game. Some nights the cards don't go your way and sometimes you draw to an inside straight. A stock broker, a film producer and a hired goon. Definitely the night's big losers, totally wiped out. And two others down a bundle. But at least they're still in the game. All games have winners and losers. So where's tonight's big winner? How long's he going to be able to stay ahead?

      • (at the murder scene)
        Kevin: Ever wish you were in a different kind of work?
        Tom: Well, I covered football once - too violent. Somebody's sure a bad loser.
        Kevin: Took a lot of trouble planning this thing.
        Tom: Why not? Maybe there was enough money on the table to buy a third world country.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: I write about lust and greed and once in a while, one of the other deadly sins creeps into my column. It's not always pleasant reading but the truth I'm aiming at is the fact that the worst passions we can imagine are wired into the structure of our brains. You accept that or you forget about understanding the two-legged creatures who dominate our planet. I've never been able to understand the kind of obsession that drives a man to risk destruction on the turn of a card. Dr. Paul Benton's obsession lead him to take bigger risks. He held healing at the tips of his fingers, but it wasn't enough. So he shuffled the cards and lost it long before he ever asked a man to steal for him, long before he ever heard of Ted Keating. There are winners and there are losers, but every now and again a game comes along where no one wins.
