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:


“That’s John Gage, that’s a damn billionaire, that’s a rich (bleepity-bleep) right there. He’s down over a million dollars already, see the gold coins he’s playing with? Ten thousand dollars apiece, every time he lays one down, 10 thousand big ones. Look at how cool he is. That (blankety-blank) must get more (um … dates) than you can shake a stick at.”

One character’s description of John Gage (Robert Redford) in Indecent Proposal (1993)


“Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine.”

— Alan Garner (Zach Galifianakis) in The Hangover (2009)


Sony Pictures Entertainment

“Las Vegas, from the casinos to the clubs, the pools and the strip bars, it’s the best place in the world for men and women to get their freak on. And it’s still the number one destination for couples to do the craziest thing of all, get married. Fortunately, I arrived the only way a sane person should. I’m talking about solo, people.”

— Cedric (Kevin Hart) in Think Like a Man Too (2014)


“You got it backwards kid. You play cards the way you should lead your life. And you lead your life the way you should play cards.”

— L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall) in Lucky You (2007)


“I can’t believe Liberace was gay. I mean, women loved him! I didn’t see that one coming.”

— Austin Powers (Mike Myers) in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)
