1.6 The Last Gamble

The mark is a fat cat CEO whose golden handshake is ripe for the picking; the scam is ‘The Wire’, involving convincing someone that you have the results of a finished horse race in time to make a bet.

Memorable Moments

  • Stacie’s (tastefully filmed) pole dance, culminating in a self-applied slap to her bottom (complete with horse-whip sound effect)

Quotable Quotes

"Yeah, you gave me a shot, and I’m grateful for that. But I’ve been carrying you ever since!"
- Danny to Mickey

Danny: I’m going now, so I won’t be pestering you any more. Okay, that’s it. I guess what I’m really wanting to know is, why you wouldn’t go out with me?
Girl at desk: (whispers something in Danny’s ear)
Danny: Because you’re a lesbian! Yes! Yes! Nothing wrong with that!

Danny: Hi.
Mickey: Oh! We’ll be gone for awhile.
Danny: We’re gonna have a well-earned rest.
Ash: But we know what you’re thinking.
Stacie: Gap in the market.
Albert: Think you might try your luck?
Danny: Easy…when you know how.
Mickey: But if you do…
Danny: You gotta remember…the first rule of the con:
Stacie: You can’t cheat an honest man.
Albert: Can’t happen.
Ash: Impossible.
Mickey: Find someone who wants something for nothing.
Stacie: Which shouldn’t be hard.
Danny: And then give them nothing…for something.
