Quotes from

Lancey Howard: Women are a universal problem in our business. Of course, uh, it's purely an academic question wuth me now, but, looking back, I think it's best not to look for a fixed thing. Just tie into something nice when you're away from the action and let it wear itself out.

Shooter: Melba, why do you do that?
Melba: So it'll fit, stupid.

Melba: At everything?

[She forces the altered piece into place]
Melba: Does now.

Slade: How the hell did you know I didn't have the king or the ace?
Lancey Howard: I recollect a young man putting the same question to Eddie the Dude. "Son," Eddie told him, "all you paid was the looking price. Lessons are extra."
