“Is this a palace?”

“Lee thinks he’s King Ludwig II.”

“Who’s he?”

“The Liberace of Bavaria.”

“Oh, was he a piano player too?”

—   Scott Thorson (Matt Damon) and Bob Black (Scott Bakula) entering Liberace’s Las Vegas mansion in Behind the Candelabra (2013)


“You made five grand last night so would you stop stealing nine-cent pens and everything you can get your hands on from the maid’s cart?”

—   Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey) to Choi (Aaron Yoo) in 21 (2008)


“Hello? Vegas? Yes, we would like some more alcohol.”
