- What were those signals?

- What signals?

- Between you and Cully. I'm not blind.

- Oh, those signals.

- He just made a little bet for me.

- Can't you lose fast enough alone?

- Where are you going?

- To have my head examined.

You can't help it if you're in love.

You're born losers, both of you!

- What's the matter with her?

- She's crazy about the wrong guy: Me.

I am a loser.

But, if I had 20 bucks, I could be a winner.

- He loaned me the last five dollars.

- You stay out of this.

Convince me. Take off your shoes.

- My shoes?!

- Off!

Love and trust -

that's what makes a marriage great.

See? I could never lie to you.

Well, there's a $10 lie.

- Now, how did that get in there?

- I wonder

Goodbye, gypsy.

Hello, Zolita!

Business is awful.

Why don't you have a talk

with your crystal ball?

Maybe these are two live ones.

What shall I promise them?

A long journey or sudden wealth?

As long as it costs you nothing,

give them both.

Ah, gentlemen!

You have come to the right place.

The one, the only, the incomparable...


The kid's got problems. Keeps breakin'
