    • TRIVIA (5)

    • QUOTES (17)

      • Frank: I'd just come from the stockyards. We'd gotten reports of hundreds of cows had been senselessly slaughtered in the area, but I couldn't find any evidence. I stopped off for a hamburger and checked in with headquarters.

      • Frank: Anyone with Schultz after the fight?
        Ed: Just his manager.
        Frank: Who's that?
        Ed: Some joe named Cooper.
        Frank: Who's this Joe Cooper?
        Ed: No, Sal Cooper.

      • Buddy: I make a pretty good living.
        Frank: Maybe you can make a better one. A cleaner one. And a better one.

      • Cooper: What are you, some kind of wise guy?
        Frank: Yeah. I'm a wise guy. With a lot of long green.
        Poker Player #1: You manage Lorne Greene?
        Cooper: I'll trade Buddy for Lorne Greene.
        Frank: No, no, I mean I've got cash.
        Poker Player #1: You mean you manage Johnny Cash too?
        Cooper: Who are you?
        Frank: Kelly. Bob Kelly. Mind if I sit in a few hands?
        Cooper: Your money's good here.
        Poker Player #1: Goodyear? You've got the blimp too?

      • Cooper: What've you got?
        Frank: Full house. Kings over.
        Cooper: Not so fast, Kelly. Straight beats a full house.
        Frank: No it doesn't. A straight beats three of a kind. A full house beats a straight.
        Poker Player #1: Can a flush beat a straight?
        Poker Player #2: A straight flush beats everything.
        Frank: Not a royal flush.
        Cooper: Does a flush beat a full house?
        Poker Player #2: A regular flush, or a straight flush?
        Poker Player #1: A flush beats a straight.

      • Frank: Buddy Briggs belongs to me now. But just to make it nice and legal, I brought along a bill of sale. Sign it. You, you witness it. You, check for spelling errors.

      • Ted: So you see, Katie, when I throw this switch, electrical current from the power source is able to continue its journey to its final destination. In our case, a light bulb.
        Katie: Gee.
        Ted: All set then?
        Katie: Guess so, Mr. Olsen.
        Ted: Here we go! Oh, hi, Frank. Ed. Why don't you run along now, Katie, and next week remember to bring three things from your mother's dressing room.

      • Mary: You're not the man I married.
        Buddy: How can you say that?
        Mary: (shows him a man sitting in the closet) Because here's the man I married.

      • Buddy: Mary. I love you. I'm trying to give you all the things you never had. A decent home, decent life, your own synagogue.

      • Frank: Buddy, I'm here to help you. Now, do you think you can beat the champ?
        Buddy: I can take him blindfolded.
        Frank: Well, he's not blindfolded.
        Buddy: I can still beat him.

      • The Champ: Roses are red, violets are blue. Sugar is sweet, I'm going to break your face.

      • Frank: Sorry, Buddy. No sax before a fight.

      • Martin: We've got Mary!
        Buddy: What?
        Frank: You're bluffing!
        Martin: Oh, yeah?
        Buddy: Mary's scarf!
        Frank: He could have gotten that anywhere.
        Martin: How 'bout this?
        Buddy: Mary's purse!
        Frank: There are millions of purses like that.
        Martin: How 'bout this?
        Buddy: Mary's toaster!
        Frank: Oh, my God!

      • Johnny: She's in big trouble. She's being held by Martin's goon Luca.
        Frank: What's a goonluka?
        Johnny: No. Luca Burnett, Martin's henchman.
        Frank: Right.

      • The Champ: Jack and Jill went up the hill. I'm gonna break your face! I'm gonna break your face!

      • Frank: All right, Luca! I've got a gun in your ribs.
        Mary: I'm not Luca, and those aren't my ribs.

      • Ed: Okay, Martin, you've fixed your last fight. From now on the boxers in this town will lose honestly.
