Quotes from Cincinnati Kid
Lancey Howard: [to Cincinnati Kid] You’re good, kid, but as long as I’m around, you’re only second best.
Lancey Howard: Women are a universal problem in our business. Of course, uh, it’s purely an academic question wuth me now, but, looking back, I think it’s best not to look for a fixed thing. Just tie into something nice when you’re away from the action and let it wear itself out.
Lancey Howard: [thinking on what he said to Lady Fingers] No, Lady; he hasn’t gotten to me. Not yet; but he might, he just might.
