Coach Ken Carter: Sit down. SIT DOWN!
Coach Ken Carter: N****r is a degrogatory term used to insult our ancestors. See, if a white man used it, you'd be ready to fight. Your using it teaches him to use it. You're saying it's cool. Well, it's not cool, and when you're around me, I don't want to hear that shit! Are we clear?
Jason Lyle: [to Coach Carter as he walks into the gym] Sir, they can cut the chains off the door, but they can't make us play.
Damien Carter: We've decided we're going to finish what you've started, sir.
Worm: Yeah, so leave us be, coach. We've got shit to do, sir.

Worm: Why he keep saying that? "What's your deepest fear?" What's that mean?
Coach Ken Carter: [repeated] Rich what?
Timo Cruz, Kenyon Stone, Coach Ken Carter, Junior Battles, Worm, Damien Carter, Jason Lyle: RICHMOND!
Coach Ken Carter: I end up taking a road trip to the suburbs where I find my drunk-ass point guard on top of Daddy's little princess.
Worm: Actually, I was on the bottom, coach, she was on the top.
Jason Lyle, Timo Cruz, Kenyon Stone, Junior Battles, Worm, Damien Carter, Maddux: [singing] We're undefeated!
Coach Ken Carter: I guess I should speak louder so you can hear me?
Worm: Yo, dawg, we hear you, but we can't see you. The glare from your big black-ass head is hella shiny man, do you buff it?
Worm: You could wipe my ass.
Worm: [referring to Mike's girlfriend Jo being too restrict on Mike's social life] She's really got him by the balls.
Petra: [hunched on top on the bar in the Chesterfield ] That's not so bad, is it?

Worm: [amused] yeah but she was a good looking older woman you gotta give me that.
[Mike's girlfriend has just left him over his broken promise not to play poker]
Worm: You know what always cheers me up, when I'm feeling shitty?
Mike McDermott: [siting in a chair in his apartment, with his head looking down] No, what's that?
Worm: Rolled up aces over kings. Check-raising stupid tourists and taking huge pots off of them. Playing all-night high-limit Hold'em at the Taj, "where the sand turns to gold." Stacks and towers of checks I can't even see over.
Mike McDermott: [his head looks up] Fuck it, let's go.
Worm: [pointing at him] Don't tease me.
Mike McDermott: [smiles] Let's play some cards.
Worm: [standing up facing him] I guess the sayings' true. In the poker game of life, women are the rake man. They are the fuckin' rake.
Mike McDermott: [siting in a chair in his apartment] What the fuck are you talkin' about. What saying?
Worm: I-I don't know. There ought to be one though.
Worm: [Pretending to be a sore loser at the college fraternity game] Like my uncle Les used to say "When the money is gone, it's time to move on". So enjoy it, you secret handshaking assholes.
Mike McDermott: [in a gymnasium] Would you stop fucking around, for five goddamn minutes for once in your fucking life?
Worm: Whoa, Jesus, what happened? My old man just walked in.
Worm: [to Roman and Maurice, chastising them for deliberately speaking Russian to each other while playing poker] You wanna see the seventh card, stop speaking fucking sputnik! I'm sure you guys were talking about pirogies and snow but let's cut that out.
Grama: You owe twenty five I'll take the rest in five days
Mike McDermott: [trying to reach an agreement to pay off Worm's debt to and Teddy KGB] Five grand a week and you keep the juice going we want what you want we want to square this thing but three days is impossible no one's saying "your not the man", just think of it as a business decision, he just got out let's put him on a plan
Grama: This is not the money store we're not negotiating I tell you how it works
Mike McDermott: Then I'm asking
Grama: [Intentionally belittling Worm] you looking for some charity?
Worm: [feeling offended] , you know what?I need your fucking charity like I need your cock in my ass.

Worm: I was trying to give us an edge
Mike McDermott: I had them
Worm: Look I'm sorry we got banged up, I took a shot and missed, it happens
Mike McDermott: Happens all the time around you
Worm: And it doesn't happen to you? You're the one that flushed his whole bank roll on one hand
Mike McDermott: Oh fuck you man, that was different
Worm: How is that different? What makes you so fucking special? Why are all your moves so smart and noble and I'm always the idiot piece of shit? You act like you're only one with any ambition
Mike McDermott: Then what's your ambition? I don't know, you tell me
Worm: I don't know, I don't think like that
Mike McDermott: No, you don't think
Worm: No, I don't think like you, you always think you can beat the game straight up, that's not me, and I'm always going to look for that edge, always
Mike McDermott: Alright, what's the edge now? We owe fifteen grand in a day and we're broke, what the fuck do we do?
Worm: That's easy, we get the fuck outta dodge, we stay clear of the city for a while, we'll hit the road, we'll be up again in no time, this will all blow over, we'll have a ball.
Mike McDermott: not a fucking chance I'm going to live like that, you talk to Grama, you get him to stake me
Worm: it's not going to work, we're not dealing with Grama.
Mike McDermott: [surprised] you said Grama was on his own
Worm: [looks down, remains silent, having been caught in a lie]
Mike McDermott: [insisting worm tell him the truth] you told me Grama was on his own
Worm: KGB bankrolled him
Mike McDermott: So you just fucked us right in the ass
Worm: [showing the car keys] yeah, all the way, you see what I'm saying. no fooling around, it's highway time, you with me or not?

Worm: Relax don't get so agitated
Vitter: Looks like we got a rogue game here
Worm: A what?
State Trooper: What the hell is going on over here?
Vitter: [Referring to Worm] This son of a bitch is base dealing, I caught a hanger
Worm: A "hanger"? What are you saying? I don't even know what you're saying
State Trooper: His saying you're dealing off the bottom of the deck
Worm: Come on guys
Sean Frye: [Referring to Mike] What'd he give him?
Vitter: Seven of hearts
State Trooper: [to Mike and Worm] You boys working? Are you professionals?
Mike McDermott: No listen I was winning before this guy got here
State Trooper: Let the cards do the talking, if the seven didn't help you we'll listen to what you have to say
Worm: [Ozzie turns mike's cards over] hey, three of a kind you've Ozzie three sixes like...
Vitter: SHUT UP
State Trooper: [Vitter gives him the deck of cards and he shows the ace of spades on the bottom] One last thing
Worm: [All the state troopers stand up] Alright take it easy are you going to read us our rights at least?
Worm: [to Mike after Worm was released from prison] You've got to understand there's two economies in there, there's cash and there's trade, so I've got to keep three games going at once, a game with the white guys, a game with the brothers and a game with the guards, the trick is I've got to skim enough cash off the white guys so I can lose it to the guards so they can keep doing me favors and then I've got to trim enough smokes off the brothers so I can trade and keep living in the "style" I've grown accustomed to and I've got to do all of this without getting my ass kicked.
Worm: [sitting inside Jo's jeep, outside the fraternity house] Here's the play: I know this girl Barbra I was so close to banging her before I went away, she works as a hostess for all the trust fund babies in there, she got me in their game, she introduces me as her "cousin" from out of town who loves to gamble and wants to win at poker.
Mike McDermott: It sounds solid, that's a nice hook up
Worm: It's all the way nice, but I got this "feeling".
Mike McDermott: What "feeling" is that exactly?
Worm: You know this "feeling", I got the table all set, knife, fork, sauce...
Mike McDermott: [Implying Worm doesn't have money to buy into this game] You just don't have the "steak"
Mike McDermott: [Giving Worm money] here's two twenty, that'll get you started
Worm: Two twenty? Thanks but that's like eleven bets I can't even get a table in here.
Mike McDermott: Then forget this game I'll straighten you out in the city tomorrow.
Worm: I'm already behind here.
Mike McDermott: You just got out, what's the big fucking hurry?
Worm: The hurry is other than you, there are five guys eagerly waiting my release.
Mike McDermott: How much do you owe?
Worm: Like ten.
Mike McDermott: Ten?
Worm: I can't even figure it out with the juice. I can get started on this easy if it's you and me working together.
Mike McDermott: I heard you asking me before and I hear you asking now but I can't do that, I just can't do that, I've made promises.
Worm: I totally understand, its fine. I'll just make a couple moves earlier than I would've before.
Mike McDermott: [talking on the street, outside Chester Field club] You're in town for five fucking minutes and you already got a sign on your back
Worm: That fucking Knish rat me out? Come on you've got to stop listening to that guy, he sees all the angles but doesn't have the balls to play any.
Mike McDermott: That guy hasn't had to work in fifteen years
Worm: You don't think that's work? Grinding it out on his leather ass? No thank you.
Mike McDermott: I thought so too now I know what real work is, speaking of which are you going to get a job? Are you going to look? Or you're just going back to printing those credit cards? Are you going away again?
Worm: First of all I wasn't "printing" I was "distributing" its different, second of all I'm never going back there, stop worrying so much.
Mike McDermott: I want you to think long term, be smart every place in Manhattan they all keep books if you get listed as a "mechanic" not only you're going to get the shit kicked out of you you're not going to get a game anywhere in New York, it's just stupid it's bad business.
Worm: This is what I love about you, you think about the big picture.
Worm: But it's not me, I don't play the game straight up then if I lose I find some real work I see a mark I take them down, that's what I do, that's the way I live.
Mike McDermott: I know you're the guy that taught me all the angles but I'm not the one with my nose open right now, I'm going to preach to you, those two guys in there they're not "rabbits" ,Roman and Maurice they're Russian outfit guys, not as bad as KGB but you don't want to be fucking around with those guys.
Worm: Those fake Versace shirts and shit?
Mike McDermott: You still got time, go back in there and lose their money back to them, and make it look good.
Petra: [hunched on top on the bar in the Chesterfield ] So how'd you do?
Worm: [Hands her his winnings in poker chips] So, so, six thousand, two thousand and here's two more
Petra: Alright so its ten grand total, take back the two we lent you, give you the "white meat."
Worm: [leaning on front the bar] you know what? Why don't you give me all of it?
Petra: Usually credit players leave with their profit otherwise the juice starts five points a week on Mike
Worm: Ok we'll owe you
Grama: [coming up from behind him] I heard you were out
Worm: [sitting down at a strip club] Hey, how you doing? I was just thinking about you, I could use you see me in two weeks I'll put you back on the payroll
Grama: I got bad news for you Worm I'm out on my own now
Worm: Really? Go figure
Grama: A lot of people were angry when you went away
Worm: [shows him a roll of cash] I know that's why I'm trying to put together a roll here
Grama: A lot of people asking if I could help if I knew where to find you so it got me thinking
Worm: [sarcastically, before Grama drags him into the bathroom] Really? You're thinking now? That's big
Grama: [Inside the bathroom] Here's what I'm thinking: instead of you owing fifteen grand spread out to five guys, you owe twenty five to me
Worm: What? Where the fuck do you get off?
Grama: where do I get off?Here's how it is, twenty five to me and the juice is still running
Worm: Jesus Christ, what the fuck are you doing? You were my partner
Grama: No I was your lackey, but I learned a few things Worm I consolidated your outstanding debt
Worm: Where did you come up with the scratch for that?
Grama: What I did was go partners with an old friend of yours Teddy KGB backed me
Worm: Teddy has plenty of goons why would he put you under his play?
Grama: Because as soon as he heard your name he became excited about the prospect
Worm: So you bought me up Grama?
Grama: Yeah, a real sweet deal too thirty cents on the dollar, not a lot of faith out there in the business community
Worm: Great so you're a banker now? That's real classy
Grama: Not exactly I don't have to tell you my collection methods
Mike McDermott: [Realizes Jo left him, sitting in a chair in his apartment] I always told her she'd be a good card player, she'd know exactly know when to release a shitty hand
Worm: [standing in front of him] Oh come on forget that this girl is obviously wrapped way too tight for a living
Mike McDermott: I knew it, I fucking knew it
Worm: This is depressing you can't trust them, you can't trust them at all, you domesticated yourself for this girl you took yourself out of life you walked a fucking line for her and the minute you want a little of it back she walks out on you
Worm: [in a gymnasium] What do you want me to say? Those were wild times you were there too
Mike McDermott: Nothing's changed you were hiding from your troubles then and your hiding from your troubles now
Worm: I like to hide that's part of the fun for me
Mike McDermott: If we fucked up back then the worst thing that could happen was catch a beating or get expelled, you're fixing to go down it's almost as if you want to
Mike McDermott: [while walking in the street, referring to the amount of money they have to make in order to pay off Worm's debt to Grama] Fifteen grand in five days I can do that I've gone on rushes like that before
Worm: [referring to the amount of cash his carrying right now] On optimum conditions with a bank roll, maybe, what'd you got on you?
Mike McDermott: I got like three fifty
Worm: That's twelve hundred between us we might've play the lotto
Mike McDermott: You find the games you scout them out I sit I mop them up
Worm: We might have a shot at this if we sat down and did our thing
Mike McDermott: No I'm going to do that, I'm going to do this straight up
Worm: [while getting shaved in a barbershop, referring to the amount of money they have on hand] We got seventy three hundred we've got to double that in two days
Mike McDermott: If we get close and come up a little short...
Worm: If we come up a little short Grama will shoot us and bury us in a hole somewhere
Worm: [to Mike before he drives off after Worm was caught base dealing, and they were both beaten and thrown out of the sheriffs game] See ya when I see ya, atleast you're "rounding" again right? You're gona thank me for that some day.
Worm: [while taking poker chips from Mike at the poker room inside The Mirage casino] let's get started, shall we?
Taj Dealer: [to worm] I'm sorry sir you can't take chips from another player at the table
Card Player: [referring to the other rounders at the table, before turning to the player sitting to his right] you know what we all know each other here, we're like friends, so if nobody complains, do you have a problem?
Card Player: it's alright
Worm: there's no problem
Taj Dealer: sir, you have to buy them from me
Worm: [in a gymnasium] Hey, I'm not gonna let a garbage can fall on my head.
Mike McDermott: No, you're gonna jump out of the way and let it land on me.
