George C. Scott Quotes:

Fast Eddie: What if I don't pay ya, Bert?
Bert Gordon: [laughs] You don't pay me? You're gonna get your thumbs broken again. And your fingers. If I want 'em to, they're gonna break your right arm in three or four places.
Minnesota Fats: You better pay him, Eddie.
Fast Eddie: So you figure you're still my manager, huh?
Bert Gordon: I'm a business-man, kid.

Fast Eddie: I'm the best you ever seen, Fats. I'm the best there is. And even if you beat me, I'm still the best.
Bert Gordon: Stay with this kid; he's a LOSER.

Bert Gordon: [Viciously to Sarah] You're here on a rain check, and I know it! You're hanging on by your nails. Let that glory whistle ring out loud and clear, and you're a wreck on a railroad track! You're a horse that finished last! Now, don't make trouble, Miss Lady Bug! Live and let live while you can!

George C. Scott Facts
According to his Patton (1970) co-star Karl Malden, Scott caused a shooting delay on the set of that movie by holding an impromptu "ping-pong" tournament against a world-champion table-tennis player. Scott, who was in full costume as Gen. Patton, kept losing to the world champ and was determined to keep playing him all night, if need be, until winning at least one set.

Was nominated for Broadway's Tony Award five times: as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic),in 1959 for "Comes a Day;" as Best Actor (Dramatic), in 1960 for "The Andersonville Trial" and in 1974 for "Uncle Vanya;" and, as Best Actor (Play), in 1976 for a revival of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" and in 1996 for a revival of "Inherit the Wind." Despite these five nominations, he never won a Tony Award.

The only products that Scott ever endorsed in a TV commercial shown in the USA were the Renault Alliance sedan and Encore coupe (later the Alliance coupe), built in the USA by American Motors.
