Poker Guy #1: [speaking about Gus] That guy damaged more kids than anybody I knew. He made my life hell growing up.

Karl: You're twice his size, you could crush that little puke!

Poker Guy #1: He didn't do the physical warfare! He played the psychological card by attacking your weaknesses. I started losing my hair when I was nine years old. And he jumped all over it with the mean nicknames! Eight ball. Bowling ball. Kojak. Mr. Clean. Cream of Wheat guy. Scatman Crothers. The black Uncle Fester!

Poker Guy #2 A.K.A. O'Malley: How about the black, bodybuilding Charlie Brown?

Poker Guy #1: He used that too!
