a manicure. oh, yeah. you still keep that good manicure, don't you? oh, that's my one luxury, fred. you know, uh, i always was a little vain about my hands. yeah, and i know why, too. because, see, wasn't a guy in the world could stand up to you when it came to playing cards. and you was always one of the best dealers in the world. i don't gamble much anymore. right now, i'm living with my daughter and son-in-law over in that little old apartment. sound like a couple of nice kids. oh, yeah. they're nice all right. presents, like bus tickets for anywhere. but right now, i'm just sort of riding around looking up old friends and not many of 'em left, fred. well, you got one in me, al. don't you forget that. i want you to stay here and have dinner with me tonight. well, are you sure? sure. i don't want to impose on you, but it look like you're already having company. no, see. that's for poker tonight. see, my son lamont is having some of his friends over,
and so are you. now you know, fred, i've known you for a long time. and i can look right up under those eyes, and i can see that you are up to no good. i'm past no good. i'm up to evil and approaching treachery. oh, now careful, fred. no. don't worry about that. see, uh, lamont and his buddies think they're such hotshot card players. oh, and you want me to take 'em down a peg or 2. no. i don't want you to take 'em down a peg or 2. i want you to drive a stake through the heart. all right. look, fred, a little ton can be a lot of fun, but, uh, sometimes feelings can get hurt. well, they ain't gonna get their feelings hurt. see, all i want you to do is win all the money so i can see their faces and then, we'll give them their money back. all right, but what am i gonna do about money? oh, well, look, i got 2 bucks here. here's what we'll do. i got $2.00, and we'll take this notebook and put a dollar on one side and a dollar on the other side
you got a bankroll here big enough to choke a horse. hey, you-- heh heh heh heh! yeah. to say nothing of them 4 jackasses. hey, listen, you go ahead and relax, and i'll go on in here and start dinner. yeah, well what are we gonna have? oh, i'm fixing one of my favorite dips today. see, i take 2 large garlic pars and crush 'em, and then i grate-- i grate 3 great, big onions, and then i wrap it velvetly around a pound of limburger cheese. what--what do you call it? you don't have to call it 'cause you always know where it is. fred, that was some good meal. thanks, al. say, lamont, when are your friends coming over here to play poker? now they'll be here any minute, and i want you to promise me something. now you can watch, but just, you know, don't interfere with nothing 'cause it takes a lot of concentration to play poker, pop. oh, i promise you, son--we'll be good. we'll be very good.

[knocking] hey, rollo. what's going on, dude? what's happening? hey, everybody, say, you know arms crowder. what's happening?
julio: how you doing, arms? what's happening, man? hey, pops, how's it going? oh, it's pretty good, rollo. uh, crime outside went down 50%. why? 'cause you inside. man. hey, rollo. how come you got here on time, man? say, man, we took the bus. you should've been there, man. the bus driver asked arms for the exact change, so he took a 50 cent piece and tore it in half. hey, look, why don't you shuffle, and let's sit down and play some poker. hey, man, i can dig it. oh, yeah. man, where do i sit? huh? where do i sit? anywhere you want to, brother. fred: say, al. look here, al. uh, here's lamont's friends. i want to introduce you to 'em. hey, fellas, this is my buddy al. this is julio-- hey, al. and rollo-- what's happening, my man? and telephone pole-o. heh heh. hi, fellas. go, lamont. deal the cards, man. a poker game.
