Out of the mouths of movie actors come pearls of … well, if not wisdom, at least amusement. Here are some quips from scripts of films connected to Las Vegas:

 

“Give it to me straight, Doc. Is this The Big Casino?”

— Anthony Bergdorf (Richard Conte) to a doctor examining his chest X-ray, in the original Ocean’s 11 (1960)

 

“You found the car?”

“Yeah! It was parked in the middle of Las Vegas Boulevard with a note that said, ‘Couldn’t find a meter, so here’s $4.’”

— Stu (Ed Helms) and Officer Franklin (Rob Riggle) in The Hangover (2009)

“Do you know what a straight flush is? It’s like …  unbeatable!”

“Like unbeatable is not unbeatable.”

— Jack (Nicolas Cage) and Betsy (Sarah Jessica Parker) in Honeymoon in Vegas (1992)

 

 

“I have a dream. That white people and black people and even Chinese people can gamble together without getting different chips”

— James Carter (Chris Tucker) in Rush Hour 2 (2001)

 

 

“The money’s just a way of keeping score. Poker is competition in the purest sense. Doesn’t matter who you are or what you are; everybody’s equal at the table.”

— Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) in Lucky You (2007)
