Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Are you offering any cash?

Machine Gun Kelly: Of course we are. Lou figured we'd pay about-

Lou, Kelly's Girl: [interrupts] Not one red cent!

Machine Gun Kelly: But honey you said 50 grand.

Lou, Kelly's Girl: That was before we found Ma alone.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: I never heard of such a thing! Trying to steal another mob's kidnap, why, it ain't honest!

Machine Gun Kelly: You're in no spot to refuse Ma.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Do you want to gamble on that?

Machine Gun Kelly: Can you beat four of a kind?

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Depends on how big they are.

Lou, Kelly's Girl: I'd call them aces

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Oh honey, you've enver been known to be very bright.

[laughs]

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: They look more like jokers to me!

Machine Gun Kelly: You're slippin Ma. A joker is still an ace.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Not in Texas poker! We strip out the joker and that's just what I'm going to do with your bad hand.

[calls]

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Fred!

[Steps out with a machine gun]

Lou, Kelly's Girl: That's a pretty low card Ma.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Well, maybe I'd better draw another.

[calls]

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Karpis!

[he steps out with another machine gun]

John Dillinger: [Kelly pulls out a handgun] You better draw your limit Ma, and fast. I'm losing patience.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: [calls] Baby Face Nelson!

[There is a pause while Kelly realized they are outnumbered]

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: And if Fred and Karpis and Baby Face and me ain't enough, I've got a wild card, a real wild card...

[calls]

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: Johnny Dillinger

[he fires off a round at the ground near their feet]

John Dillinger: Fives beat fours, I'd say that Ma has the best hand.

Katherine Clark 'Ma' Barker: [Laughing] After this, folks'll be callin you 'Pop' Gun Kelly!
