Dialogue between Literature Professor Jim Bennett and Loan Shark Frank, from the 2014 film, "The Gambler": Jim Bennett: I’ve been up two and a half million. Frank: What you got on you? Jim Bennett: Nothing. Frank: What you put away? Jim Bennett: Nothing. Frank: You get up two and a half million dollars, any a-shole in the world knows what to do: you get a house with a 25 year roof, an indestructible Jap-economy sh-tbox, you put the rest into the system at three to five percent to pay your taxes and that’s your base, get me? That’s your fortress of f-cking solitude. That puts you, for the rest of your life, at a level of f-ck you. Somebody wants you to do something, f-ck you. Boss p-sses you off, f-ck you! Own your house. Have a couple bucks in the bank. Don’t drink. That’s all I have to say to anybody on any social level. Did your grandfather take risks? Jim Bennett: Yes. Frank: I guarantee he did it from a position of f-ck you. A wise man’s life is based around f-ck you.
