Bartender: [over the noise in the background] How's the game going?
Rusty: Longest hour of my life.

Bartender: Great! [grins and flashes Rusty a thumbs-up]


Basher: That poxy demo crew haven't used a coaxial feed to batten the main line, have they? Instead they've gone and nosed up the backup grid, nosed it right up!

Danny: It's never been tried.
Reuben: Ho, ho... "It's never been tried." Oh, it's been tried. A few guys even came close. You know the three most successful robberies in the history of Vegas?
[flashback - the gaming room at the Horseshow, in black-and-white]
Reuben: [voiceover] Number three, the Bronze Medal - pencil-neck grabs a lockbox at the Horseshoe...
[a man grabs a lockbox out of a guard's hand and runs for the door, and six guards instantly tackle him to the floor]
Reuben: He got two steps closer to the door than any living soul before him.

[cut to the present]
Reuben: Second most successful robbery...
[flashback - the gaming room at the Flamingo, in grainy color. A long-haired man is running for the door, clutching a bag]
Reuben: The Flamingo in '71. This guy actually tasted fresh oxygen before they grabbed him.
[the man gets within a few feet of the door, before a guard smashes him across the neck with a nightstick]
Reuben: Of course, he was breathing out of a hose for the next three weeks. Goddamn hippy.
[back to the present]
Reuben: And the *closest* any man has ever come to robbing a Las Vegas casino...
[flashback - outside Caesar's Palace, in color. A man runs out, hunched over an armful of cash, followed by three security guards]
Reuben: Was outside of Caesar's in '87. He came, he grabbed...
[the three guards shoot the thief in the back]
Reuben: They conquered.

Danny: Livingston, we're set.
Rusty: Livingston, we're set.
Livingston: Basher, we're set.
Basher: Hang on a minute chief.
Livingston: We don't have a minute, Yen's gonna suffocate.
Basher: Then you'd better leave off bothering me, don't you think?

Danny: Now, they tell me I paid my debt to society.
Tess: Funny, I never got a check.

Danny: Saul, are you sure you're ready to do this?

Danny: [to Reuben] He's ready.

Danny: Second task, power - on the night of the fight, we're gonna throw the switch on Sin City. Basher, it's your show.

Danny: Tess, you're doing a great job curating the museum, the Vermeer is quite good, simple, vibrant, but his work definitely fell off as he got older.
Tess: Remind you of anyone?
Danny: And I always confuse Monet and Manet. Now which one married his mistress?
Tess: Monet.
Danny: Right, and then Manet had syphilis.
Tess: They also painted occasionally.

Danny: There's a ninety-five pound Chinese man with a hundred sixty million dollars behind this door.

Rusty: Blew it all on the suit.

Danny: We'll need Saul.
Rusty: He won't do it. He got out of the game a year ago.
Danny: Religion?
Rusty: Ulcers.
Danny: ...You could ask him.
Rusty: Hey, I could ask him.
