    I thought this episode did a really good job in showing us everyones backstory as far as how they lost there money to the madador / how they became involved in poker. I really enojoyed the on screen connection with the Don Everest and Eddie, I think the two work really well on screen together. Eddie hitting it off with Dee was actually a really cool twist...if it was a plan to hook up with her or if it was just natural is unknown, but I liked watching those two hook up. Clarks backstory about how he get expelled from college was cool, as it should that he is a gambler to the max. Good episode overall thought I liked itmoreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Clark: Now see, you and those Jacks are like fat Joe at a KFC. You can't lay off even though you know they killin' you.

    • Seymour: So Eddie, did you know that when the French invented playing cards, each suit stood for a different class of society. The hearts represented the church, the spades symbolized the army, the diamonds were the aristocracy, and the clubs, the peasants. 600 years later, not much has changed. Clubs are still bleeding to the diamonds and being re-assured by the hearts that the spades are protecting their interests.
      Eddie: Ah, plus ca change, right?

    • Matador: When I see a strong young player with the makings of becoming a real pro, I'll put him in a game. I'll bank roll him, take a piece of him. Fifty percent of the winnings is mine.
      Eddie: Kind of like a farm system of .
      Matador: If you sit with me you play to win but you gotta watch my back also.

    • Aliquippa: Brunson, Gus Hansen, Seidel, they ain't nothing special. I watch 'em on TV back at my house in Aliquippa. It's just so frickin' obvious to me that they're bluffin'.
      Sunglasses: I know man. I can always tell what they're got.
      Eddie (to himself): Oh sure, it's obvious when ESPN is showing you their hole cards. There's no hole card cam here. If you wanna know what I'm holding, you're gonna have to read my face. A little advice to you: If you're gonna wear the shades to keep me from looking at your eyes, don't adjust the frames whenever you catch an ace. Oh honey, don't give your stack a hand job everytime you're gonna raise.

    • Seymour: No amount of planning can prepare Eddie for what it's really like on the inside. When you're running with the Matador, nothing's off limits. Point at it, it's yours. Cash, you're pockets are packed with it. Action, as much as you can choke down. Broads? Forget it. How's a kid gonna keep his head straight with all that at his feet?
      Miami: You think he's gonna get sucked in?
      Seymour: Of course he's gonna. The question is can he pull himself out the other side.

    • Matador: Even Wally Pipp wasn't dumb enough to bring Lou Gehrig to batting practice.
      Lou Gehring is a Hall of Fame baseball player who is known as "The Iron Horse." He earned the name after starting a record 2,130 consecutive baseball games. The record stood for 56 years until it was broken by Cal Ripken. Gehrig's streak began when he pinch-hit for Pee-Wee Wanninger on June 1, 1925. The next day, regular first baseman Wally Pipp was benched, so Gehrig started at first base; he would remain there until 1939.
