Ace Rothstein(Casino): No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun.

Betty Grable: You’re better off betting on a horse than betting on a man. A horse may not be able to hold you tight, but he doesn’t wanna wander from the stable at night.
Quote of the Day
Frank Delaney: First a piece of Irish wisdom: you should always listen to a bookie.
