Season 1: Episode 10: Shoe Money Tonight

Man: Studio A, this is master control. You're up on router 9 tonight.
Dave: Three minutes in, four minutes live.
Kim: Dan, Casey, to the studio please.
Dan: I tell you to hit, what do you do? Are you listening to me?


Studio/Control Room:
Casey: Hey, I don't understand the insurance.
Dan: You don't have to understand the insurance.
Casey: I just buy the insurance.
Dan: Yes, you do.
Casey: When did you become the guy who knows more than me about blackjack?
Dan: I've always been the guy who's known more than you about blackjack.
Casey: Always?
Dan: Yes.
Casey: Then why do you lose?
Dan: I never lose.
Casey: You always lose.
Dan: I hardly ever lose.
Casey: You hardly ever win.
Dan: Tonight's different.
Casey: Yeah, I had a hunch.
Dan: I'm in the zone.
Casey: There's no zone.
Dan: There's a zone.
Casey: There really isn't.
Dan: There's a very palpable zone, my friend. And I am in it.
Dave: Two minutes in, three minutes live.
Casey: Jeremy, check Natalie's shot sheet in the 20s. She got something wrong.
Jeremy: You got something wrong?
Natalie: Yes I did, wonder boy, and after the show I'm gonna kill myself. Why don't you go play some tennis with your friends?
Jeremy: How many more times do you want me to say I'm sorry?
Elliot: It's gonna be a few more times.
Jeremy: We're having a little thing.
Dana: I've been hearing about it all day. Teddy, it's a standing two. Ask them about their running game, ask them about injuries.
Jeremy: She wanted to go to the movies.
Dana: I really have been hearing about it all day.
Isaac: (enters) Dana, can I see you out here?
Dana: Yeah. (goes into hallway) What's going on?
Isaac: I'm shrinking. But that's not what I came to tell you.
Dana: You're shrinking?
Isaac: Manny measured me for a new suit an hour ago, turns out I'm shrinking.
Dana: Where?
Isaac: You wanna listen to me or you wanna tell your funny jokes?
Dana: I can do both.
Isaac: Peter Lasker and Paul Schapp are...
Dana: Oh, you're kidding.
Isaac: It's snowing in Pittsburgh.
Dana: Dan and Casey are going to Atlantic City.
Isaac: Not tonight.
Dana: Paul and Peter are stuck at the airport?
Isaac: They've been sitting on the tarmac.
Dana: Casey and Dan are gonna be pretty upset, Isaac. You better get in there and tell them.
Isaac: I've decided to let you do it.
Dana: Really.
Isaac: I'm delegating. (leaves)
Dana: Thank you. (goes back into Control Room)
Isaac: Don't mention it.
Dana: Paul and Peter are on a tarmac in Pittsburgh.
Dave: 60 seconds to VTR.
Will: 90 seconds live.
Chris: Stand by VTR.
Natalie: Paul and Peter aren't gonna make it?
Dana: It's snowing.
Kim: The guys think they're going to Atlantic City.
Dana: Not tonight.
Natalie: Who's gonna tell them?
Dana: Funny you should ask that, Natalie.
Dave: Roll VTR.
Dan: I say 'double down' what do you do?
Casey: Can we stop?
Dan: I say 'double down', what do you do?
Casey: How do you know that you're in the zone?
Dan: (puts deck of cards on the desk) Cut me.
Casey: Danny...
Dan: Cut the cards.
Casey: (cuts deck, holds up card) Nine.
Dan: (cuts deck, holds up card) Jack.
Casey: (again) Seven.
Dan: (again) Eight.
Casey: (pauses briefly before cutting once more) Queen.
Dan: (takes a deep breath) Ace.
Casey: Dude, you are in the zone. (high fives)
Dan: I say 'double down'?
Casey: Double my ass down.
Natalie: (entering studio) Fellas, I've got some bad news.
Casey: There's no bad news tonight, Natalie. When the show comes down, Danny and I are hoppin' in a limo, heading down the Garden State Parkway, and getting off at an exit clearly marked 'The Zone'.
Natalie: That's great Casey, but all those things you just said?
Casey: Yeah.
Natalie: Not gonna happen.
Casey: Show her the card thing.
Dan: Paul and Peter are trapped in an airport.
Natalie: It's snowing in Pittsburgh. You gotta stay and do the West Coast Update. Look, I know you guys had your hearts set on going to Atlantic City, and that this isn't the first time that this has happened but all I can...
Dan: Natalie.
Natalie: Yeah?
Dan: It's no problem.
Natalie: It's no problem?
Casey: It's no problem.
Natalie: You're kidding.
Casey: Life's like that sometimes Natalie.
Dan: You can't control the weather.
Casey: So you shouldn't worry about it.
Dan: We all work for the same network.
Casey: We're happy to help out.
Natalie: I have to say I'm impressed with the maturity you two are exhibiting right now.
Dan: Part of the job.
Natalie: Have a good show. (leaves)
Dan: (snaps pencil in half.) Bites!
Casey: This bites hard.
Dan: This bites.
Dave: In 3...2...
Dan: Good evening. From New York City, I'm Dan Rydell alongside Casey McCall. Those stories, plus a Ryder Cup preview and a trip to the big sombraro.
Casey: (Dan throws a mini tantrum while off camera) We'll run down how the top draft picks are faring the big time and we'll run up the flag at Greensboro. All of that coming up after this. You're watching Sports Night on CSC, so stick around.
Dave: We're out

*c-break*

Studio/Control Room:
Sally: Anyway, I really appreciate the two of you sticking around and filling in.
Casey: It's no problem.
Sally: Oh please. You think I wanna be stuck doing the 2 a.m.? This is just a temp gig.
Casey: Temp gig?
Dan: Temporary gig.
Casey: Thanks.
Sally: My stuff's out there. I talk to a lot of people.
Dan: Just so long as none of them are talking back.
Sally: CNBC, MSNBC...
Dan: M-O-U-S-E...
Casey: Danny.
Dan: Like she's listening to anybody but herself.
Sally: Even CNN.
Casey: No kidding.
Sally: Oh yeah.
Dan: Listen Sally, we're kind of in the middle of a, what do you call it? A national television show.
Sally: No, but we do good work on the 2 am.
Dave: Sally, we're back in 30 and you're in our shot.
Dana: I have a keen dislike for that woman.
Natalie: She's perfectly nice.
Dana: She is not perfectly nice. And I'd appreciate a little back up here. Can we have a bond over this please?
Natalie: Fine. I'll stop thinking Sally's nice if you'll stop thinking Jeremy's right.
Dana: I never said Jeremy was right.
Jeremy: I'm sitting right here.
Dana: Stay quiet!
Natalie: Thank you. (into mic) Sally, camera 2's got your butt pretty well framed so if you wouldn't mind stepping out of the shot.
Dana: Thank you. And be sure Casey sees your cleavage as you walk out... there you go.
Dave: In 3...2...
Dan: That's all for us, but don't shed a tear 'cause Casey and I will be back at 2 am on this coast 11 pm on the left, subbing in for Peter Lasker and Paul Schapp on the West Coast Update.
Casey: So don't adjust that dial, and while we're gone, if any talking animals tell you buy some tacos or beer... for god's sake do what they tell you. You've been watching Sports Night on CSC. Have a good night.
Dan: Good night, Mom.
Dave: We're out.
Dan: You know, it occurs to me that we have some time to kill.
Casey: Yes.
Dan: And a deck of cards.
Casey: Yes.
Dan: We've been to the ATM.
Casey: Some people walking around here with a little too much change in their pockets.
Dan: We gotta lighten these folks up a little bit.
Casey: Take them off their coin.
Dan: You know what they say. (They both get up walk through the studio and news room)
Casey: About what?
Dan: About money won.
Casey: What do they say?
Dan: I don't know. I'm asking.
Casey: They say it's twice as sweet as money earned.
Dan: How come you said 'what do they say'?
Casey: It was an alley-oop pass.I was dishing you the ball.
Dan: You were. And I completely missed it.
Casey: I was there for the putback.
Dan: I wouldn't have been able to do anything with it anyway.
Casey: That's right.
Dan: Because I didn't know the expression. (stops walking)
Casey: Not only that, but it was like half an hour ago and we're still talking about it.
Dan: Uh oh.
Casey: You're not in the zone anymore are you?
Dan: Not in the zone.
Casey: Lost the zone.
Dan: I'm down here with the rest of you.
Casey: Let's play cards! Come on!

Isaac's office:
Dana: Hey Isaac, are you in here? Whoa I can barely see you down there.
Isaac: Pretty funny coming from someone I can fire anytime I like.
Dana: I downloaded some stuff on osteoporosis.
Isaac: Dana, this is no joke.
Dana: I know. And the good news is it says here that osteoporosis isn't an inevitable part of aging as once was thought. In fact, if you haven't reached menopause yet... (gasps) No, wait. Hold on.
Isaac: Thank you very much.
Dan: Either of you participating in the sport of kings?
Dana: We're gonna race horses?
Dan: We're gonna play poker.
Dana: That's not the sport of kings.
Dan: What's the sport of kings.
Dana: Racing horses.
Dan: What's poker the sport of?
Dana: It's the sport of people who play poker.
Dan: Thank you.
Dana: Isaac's shrinking.
Isaac: Oh yeah, Dana. I forgot to ask you: please, spread that around.
Dan: What do you say? We got nothing to do for 3 hours.
Dana: $10 minimum, 3 raise limit?
Dan: Whatever.
Dana: Shoe money tonight!
Dan: Whatever. Isaac?
Isaac: I'll play a couple of hands.
Dana: Isaac, I'm gonna bring along this material on shrinking and read it aloud as we play. Unless you think that's gonna distract you?
Isaac: No, I just want to make sure you've got time to put your resume together and clean out your desk.
Dana: He's nuts about me.

Editing room:
Jeremy: It was one night. It was tennis.
Natalie: It was the only night we had the same night off together for like two weeks.
Jeremy: We're together every night anyway.
Natalie: At midnight! We go back to my place or we go back to your place. We have a lot of sex, we watch the 2 am wrap up, we go to sleep, we go to work. What kind of relationship is that?
Jeremy: It's working out pretty well for me. (Natalie stops smiling and leaves room) It was a joke! I made a joke. I like to make you laugh! (Jeremy follows her as she walks through the studio and into the control room.) Why? Because I like you very much.
Natalie: Jeremy?
Jeremy: Yeah.
Natalie: It wasn't the greatest joke I've ever heard.
Jeremy: I never said I was opening for Jack Benny.
Natalie: You meant Henny Youngman.
Jeremy: I meant Jack Benny.
Natalie: Jack Benny plays the clarinet.
Jeremy: Jack Benny plays the violin. For that matter so does Henny Youngman, but you're thinking of Benny Goodman.
Natalie: Do you really always have to be right?
Jeremy: No.
Natalie: Then why are you still talking?
Jeremy: 'Cause I am right.
Natalie: Could have guessed.
Jeremy: Hey, if we're gonna fight, could it not be about Henny Youngman?
Natalie: We're not fighting about Henny Youngman. We're fighting because instead of going to the movies with me, you decided to play tennis with Judy Rootie-Tootie.
Jeremy: You guys getting all of this?
Will: You know someone named Judy Rootie-Tootie?
Jeremy: Judy Restin-Taylor.
Chris: The actress?
Jeremy: We went to school together.
Chris: I hear she's great in that new thing.
Natalie: Thank you Siskel and Ebert!
Jeremy: Natalie!
Casey: (enters) Hey, we're playing poker in the conference room. You guys in?
Jeremy: Natalie and I can't play. It's important we spend these precious moments together.
Natalie: Oh, they'll be no precious moments tonight, darling. You know what I mean?
Jeremy: I think I do.
Natalie: No precious moments of any kind.
Jeremy: I understand.
Natalie: If how ever, your arrogance extends to thinking you're a better poker player than I am, you are welcome to join me at the card table so that I can wipe that smug smile off your face and teach you a lesson you so richly deserve.
Jeremy: Natalie, do you even know how to play poker?
Natalie: The guys at Sigma Kappa Pi let me play in their poker game any time I wanted. Now why do you suppose that was?
Jeremy: Because you're a knockout and your parents are loaded?
Natalie: Because I've got game baby. (snaps her fingers and does a dance move)
Jeremy: Have you fallen on your head?
Natalie: Or are you afraid I might humiliate you and you won't be able to go to Sundance with Judy the ho?
Jeremy: I tell ya, Casey, it appears some time as freed up in my schedule and I just might be able to play cards with you after all.
Natalie: Rack 'em up, Casey. (exits)
Jeremy: (yells after her)That's pool, you mental patient! (to everyone else as he walks out) It's gonna be a fun night.
All: Oh yeah.

*c-break*

Conference Room:
Casey is dealing to everyone.
Dan: I can't believe how not in the zone I am. It's really pretty startling how little time it takes to go from being in the zone to being not in the zone.
Casey: Yeah.
Dan: Tell them about the time I was in the zone.
Casey: There was a time he was in the zone.
Dan: Beautiful.
Casey: Yes it was, but you know what?
Dan: What?
Casey: That's yesterday's news. You're what was. Look at your cards make a bet.
Dan: Fold.
Isaac: Call.
Dana: Shoe money tonight!
Isaac: Would you stop that?
Dana: Isaac's a bit cranky. Seems that while he was growing up he didn't get enough calcium and vitamin D.
Casey: (dealing cards) 8, possible flush. 6, no help. Queen, no help. Aces bet.
Natalie: $10.
Jeremy: Natalie...
Natalie: $10!
Jeremy: (twirling a poker chip with his fingers) Don't you think you owe me enough money?
Natalie: I was taught to play poker by the boys of Sigma Kappa Pi. I'm doing fine.
Jeremy: Natalie, you owe me like $700,000. I'm basically your landlord at this point. Stop playing!
Natalie: Jealous of the frat boys?
Jeremy: There are times you're not that easy to love.
Sally: (enters) How are my guys? (The room is silent. Dan and Casey exchange glances)
Dan: Us?
Sally: We are putting together a great show for you guys.
Dan: Good.
Sally: Well, great is relative, I guess. It's just the 2 am. (Dana glares at Sally and then stands up.) On your show though, I could really do my thing. I mean, let it fly!
Dana: Sally, can I see you for a second? (starts to leave conference room)
Sally: But I guess there's only one Dana Whitaker.
Dana: Sally? (they leave)
Casey: I have a hunch Dana's about to make that point right now.
Isaac: Pair of kings.
Natalie: Trip aces.
Jeremy: Straight to the Jack. (begins collecting his chips)
Natalie: Can I say something?
Jeremy: Sure.
Natalie: Of my entire roster of boyfriends, and it is, believe me, quite the lengthy list, you are my least favorite.
Jeremy: Hey, I'm just happy to be on the team.

News Room
Dana: On segments 10, 12 and 13...
Sally: I really don't want to get into a little thing with you.
Dana: No, you really don't. On segments 10, 12 and 13...
Sally: I'm just saying, the 2 am is my show.
Dana: And you do a good job.
Sally: I'm not staying there forever Dana. I have got people talking to me-- MSNBC...
Dana: Sally? I don't really care that much about your life.
Sally: Well, look who's the belle of the ball.
Dana: Right. On segments 10, 12 and 13...
Sally: What about them?
Dana: Casey's not going to want to do it this way, he likes to break up the highlights with features or remotes.
Sally: Casey approves your rundowns?
Dana: No, but that's me. We've been working together for a really long time. It's like a marriage. He trusts me. With you, and I hope you don't take this personally, he's gonna want to approve the rundowns.
Sally: He already approved it.
Dana: He approved it?
Sally: He said it was fine.
Dana: He said it was fine.
Sally: Well, he didn't really look at it, but he said, 'Hey you're the producer, whatever you think is best.'
Dana: Huh. He said that?
Sally: Yeah.
Dana: Huh. Interesting. Can I--just can I ask, did he say it like 'hey you're the producer whatever you think is best' or did he say 'hey you're the producer you know what's best. It doesn't really matter because I know that Dana's gonna take a look at the rundown and take care of it anyway.'
Sally: The first one.
Dana: (laughs nervously) Okay. Interesting.
Sally: You've got a little thing for Casey, don't you?
Dana: I can't tell you how little a thing I don't have.
Sally: It's okay. He's very cute. Recently divorced, makes a ton of money and I'm sure he's got good contacts. Ya know, I don't mind telling you I could really go for him. We don't even need to have a relationship. Just the sex and the contacts. My friendship with you is the important thing, Dana, and I really mean that. I don't want anything...
Dana: Oh Sally, I can tell you're starting to open up to me a little and I think that's great, but I'm pretty much done talking with you right now.
Sally: We'll have drinks?
Dana: Absolutely.
Sally: See ya.
Dana: Okay.

Conference Room:
Dan: Jacks and 4s.
Isaac: Trip 5s.
Jeremy: Straight. (everyone groans)
Natalie: I know why you're beating me so much.
Jeremy: It's because you're not a very good poker player.
Natalie: That's not why.
Jeremy: It really is.
Natalie: Or isn't it just possible that you're sitting in the good chair?
Jeremy: No. But what is possible is that the boys from Sigma Kappa Pi are a big honkin bunch of losers!
Dana: What did I miss?
Elliot: Natalie's pretty much divested herself of possessions.
Natalie: I'm mounting a comeback.
Dana: Isaac? Did somebody step on Isaac?
Isaac: You still work here?
Dana: I'll never leave you, l'il buddy! Casey?
Casey: Yeah. (Dana slaps him on the back of the head) Ow!
Dana: Can I talk to you outside for a second?
Casey: Yes.
Dana: You approved Sally's rundown?
Casey: Yeah.
Dana: You approved it?
Casey: Yes.
Dana: Just like that, it was approved?
Casey: Well, I didn't hold any confirmation hearings or anything like that.
Dana: No, you just approved it without even looking at it.
Casey: Well, I never need to approve your rundowns!
Dana: Thaaaat's right!
Casey: (stares blankly for a moment) I have done something wrong, but for the life of me...
Dana: Casey... (drags him into the control room)
Casey: We're about to have a little talk, aren't we?
Dana: Oh yes.

Conference Room
Dan: Isn't osteoporosis pretty common?
Isaac: Very common. Espcially among Caucasian women.
Dan: Bummer.
Isaac: Yes.
Dan: What are you gonna do with your old suits?
Isaac: I was thinking about shoving them up your...
Dan: No problem.
Jeremy: I'm taking a break, if anyone wants my seat.
Will: It's the good chair.
Jeremy: I'm just gonna run to the bathroom. Do you want to come with me to the bathroom, Dan?
Dan: (everyone looks at Dan) Why no, Jeremy, I don't.
Jeremy: You don't want to step outside with me and talk on our way to the bathroom?
Dan: (more staring at Dan) Sure.
Jeremy: We're just stepping out and going to the bathroom.

News Room
Jeremy: I didn't really have to go to the bathroom.
Dan: Really.
Jeremy: I just wanted to talk.
Dan: I don't think anyone saw through your clever ruse.
Jeremy: I am in the dog house with Natalie.
Dan: Come into my office. (they enter Dan and Casey's office)
Jeremy: It's a new relationship. Clearly I've broken some rule and no one ever taught me.
Dan: You played tennis with your friends.
Jeremy: Yes.
Dan: Instead of going out with her.
Jeremy: Yes.
Dan: And one of those friends happend to be a beautiful actress.
Jeremy: Yes.
Dan: Dude.
Jeremy: I know.
Dan: You're very wise to come to me with this problem.
Jeremy: Thank you.
Dan: (gets 2 Red Bulls from fridge) Natalie is angry because she doesn't understand a fundamental principle.
Jeremy: What's that?
Dan: The principle?
Jeremy: Yeah.
Dan: A man's past is more important to him than his future.
Jeremy: Ahh.
Dan: You understand?
Jeremy: No.
Dan: Neither do women.
Jeremy: I know how they feel.
Dan: You have to stand firm on this Jeremy. Sooner or later she's going to realize that she's wrong and when she does you have to stand firm. You can't forgive her right away. She needs a little punishment.
Jeremy: What kind of punishment.
Dan: I'd withold sex.
Jeremy: You would?
Dan: Yes.
Jeremy: That sounds like it would be way worse for me then it would for her.
Dan: Education isn't easy.
Jeremy: You don't have any idea what you're talking about, do you?
Dan: On this? No.
Jeremy: Part of what you said is true.
Dan: Really?
Jeremy: I have to stand firm, not to establish an upper hand but to establish equality.
Dan: Exactly.
Jeremy: We'll have an argument and she will take a position that absolutely defies logic. Now, I have a pretty good respect for logic. But then all she has to do is put on one of my shirts.
Dan: The shirt.
Jeremy: She'll grab a white dress shirt from my closet.
Dan: You're cooked.
Jeremy: It's over.
Dan: That's it!
Jeremy: Like bishop to queen's rook 7.
Dan: Keep going.
Jeremy: My chess team was playing Lakeland. I start my match king's pawn 3, kings pawn 3. Bam, bam bam. All of a sudden the guy moves bishop to queen's rook 7. I lost 32 moves later, but I was never even in it.
Dan: Right. And that relates to Natalie wearing your shirt how?
Jeremy: I have to stand firm. Thank you.
Dan: Right.

Control Room
Dana: I have worked very hard over the years to learn what you like and what you don't like. What works for you and what doesn't. And it's very discouraging to learn it turns out you've been taking it for granted.
Casey: I haven't been taking it for granted.
Dana: You've been taking it for granted!
Casey : I haven't been!
Dana: You think Sally and I operate at the same level and since you don't approve my rundowns, well, there's no reason to approve hers. Sally? You know, Sally? Do you understand what I'm talking about?
Casey: Sally.
Dana: Yes.
Casey: Let me try this: you are so good at your job and Sally is so not that much, that the actual dichotomy, the phenomenal...
Dana: You're pathetic! You know that?
Casey: I didn't want to bring this up, but it seems to me, and I'm just speaking as a friend, but it seems to me that your jealousy of Sally doesn't have quite as much to do with her professional acumen as you would lead us to believe.
Dana: Woah, there huckleberry. Come on back to the stable. First of all, Sally doesn't have any professional acumen. And second of all, what the hell are you talking about?
Casey: I'm just saying that it's hard not to notice that the woman's body was put together by a technician very close to God.
Dana: A technician close to God?
Casey: Well, not God himself, but a high level staff person. Senior VP.
Dana: Well, her brain was put together by the assistant night guy at the 7-11.
Casey: Well, maybe so, but I think the source of your problem....
Dana: Is her body?!?
Casey: Her legs do go all the way to the floor and she's gonna be whispering in my ear for 30 minutes.
Dana: One of the things she's going to be whispering is 'Standby 14,' which will be your third straight highlight without a break for a feature. She's got cameras 2 and 3 as your primaries, Dan's doing soccer, AND! Two of your intros contain puns.
Casey: Puns?
Dana: Puns.
Casey: There are puns?
Dana: Yes.
Casey: Puns?
Dana: Bad ones.
Casey: Is there such a thing as a good one?
Dana: No. (starts to leave control room)
Casey: And you're not going to do anything about this?
Dana: Well, sorry pal. The 2 am's not my table.
Casey: Help me out.
Dana: I'm gonna go play poker.
Casey: You're gonna go play cards while I'm doing puns on Camera 3?
Dana: It's time to kick back.
Casey: (runs into studio) Sally!

Conference Room
Elliot: Last card.
Dana: Who's still alive?
Kim: Isaac, Natalie and Jeremy.
Dan: You give Casey a talking to?
Dana: Yes I did.
Natalie: He didn't really mean anything, Dana.
Dana: Bonding.
Natalie: I'm sure he deserved it!
Dana: Thank you. How you doin' Jeremy?
Jeremy: Can't complain...
Dana: Shut up.
Natalie: Thank you.
Elliot: Jeremy, ace bets.
Jeremy: $50.
Isaac: (looks at cards) Fold.
Natalie: Raise $50.
Jeremy: Natalie...
Elliot: And then there were two.
Natalie: I've raised you 50.
Jeremy: Natalie, listen to me. You've lost a lot of money to me tonight. You're basically going to be living the rest of your life on a charitable grant from the Jeremy Goodwin Foundation. Take the 100 bucks back and fold.
Natalie: Scared?
Jeremy: I've got a straight. You've got three 7s.
Natalie: You don't have a straight.
Jeremy: Look at me. I'm not lying to you. I have a straight.
Natalie: How do you know I don't have a big house?
Jeremy: A full house. Dan already folded the 6 you needed and I have the other one. You don't have a house of any sort. You don't have a pup tent. You've got trip 7s and I have a straight. I want you to trust me right now. I want you to say to yourself, "Yeah, I've dated a string of jerks in my life. They were stupid. They were mean to me. But maybe this one's different. Maybe I should take a chance and not adopt the 'break up with him before he breaks my heart' strategy." I want you to remember that when I started liking you, I didn't stop liking tennis. And I want you to know that I don't think there's a woman in the world that you need to be threatened by, no matter how glamourous you think she is. But mostly, I want you to trust me, just once, when I tell you that you have three 7s and I have a straight.
(long pause)
Natalie: You're bluffing so hard it's coming out your ears.
Jeremy: Call.
Natalie: Three 7s.
Jeremy: 6. 7. 8. 9. Oh and guess what? 5. (starts collecting his chips)
Dana: That was cool.
Natalie: I don't deserve you.
Jeremy: No. You really don't.
Natalie: I'm sorry.
Jeremy: I don't think you are.
Natalie: No, I really am.
Jeremy: This is gonna take some time.
Natalie: Maybe you could take me back to your apartment and I could accelerate the healing process?
Jeremy: No, I don't think so Natalie. I don't think you should be rewarded for your behavior.
Dan: Stand tough there, Jeremy.
Dana: What are you doing?
Dan: He's my boy.
Dana: You're his boy?
Jeremy: Yeah, but it's okay. Natalie? I think it's best if we spend tonight apart.
Natalie: You're probably right. I've got no clothes at your place anyway, so I'd just end up having to wear one of your shirts. And I know how much you hate that.
Jeremy: (falters, looks around room) I was never even in it!
Natalie: Good night everybody!
Jeremy: Good night! (spins Natalie out of the room)
Casey: Where are you going?
Dan: White dress shirt.
Casey: Got it.
Jeremy: (from hallway) Have a good show!
Casey: We're not gonna have a good show. We're gonna have a terrible show. Dana, you've either got to stand over that woman's shoulder or you have to call everyone in the pacific time zone and tell them I'm not really like this.
Dana: The thing is Jeremy's gone now, the cards are still hot and I'm feeling like I might just be somewhere in the vicinity of the zone. And you know what that means?
Isaac: Please don't say it.
