Molly's Game (2017)
Molly Bloom: You know what makes you feel okay about losing? Winning.
Molly Bloom: To whoever answered that the worst thing that can happen in sports is getting 4th place in the Olympics: Seriously? Fuck you.
Judge Foxman: This courthouse is located within spitting distance of Wall Street. I know this from my personal experience trying to spit at it. The men and women who work there will commit more serious crimes by lunchtime today than the defendant has committed in this indictment.
Molly Bloom: A survey was taken a few years ago that asked 300 professionals one question, "What's the worst thing that can happen in sports?" Some people answered losing a game 7, and other people said getting swept in the 4. Some people said it was missing the world cup, and some Brazilians said it was losing to Argentina. Not just in the world cup. Anytime, ever in any contest. But one person answered that the worst thing that can happen in sports is 4th place at the Olympics.
Molly Bloom: Because it's my name... and I'll never have another.
Harrison Wellstone: In Mike Davidoff's phone, intercepts alone, just Davidoff, your name comes up 19 times! "We need Molly..." "Get Molly..." "Bring Molly." It strongly suggests you were important to his business, so it's hard for me to believe that someone with your savvy and obvious intellect...
Molly Bloom: [interrupting him] They're talking about the drug. "Get molly" "Bring molly" "We need molly" It's... they're talking about the drug 'ecstasy'.
Molly Bloom: This is a true story, but except for my own, I've changed all the names and I've done my best to obscure identities for reasons that'll become clear.
Larry Bloom: [to Molly] Your addiction was having power over powerful men.
Player X: You know, I don't like playing poker.
Molly Bloom: Why do you play?
Player X: I like destroying lives.
Larry Bloom: I'm your father. Trying to comprehend how much I love you would be like trying to visualize the size of the universe.
Larry Bloom: I didn't know you got beaten up until I read it in your book. It was a hell of a way to learn about it, you should know. And if I'm hiring someone to find the guy who did it then I'm hiring someone to kill him.
Molly Bloom: Don't even joke about that.
Larry Bloom: I'm not.
Molly Bloom: It wasn't a purse snatcher, Dad. It was the mafia.
Larry Bloom: I don't care if it's the leader of the mob. Someone put their hand on you, they're gonna suffer.
Molly Bloom: Dad, I'm fine.
Larry Bloom: No, they're gonna suffer.
Molly Bloom: Dad, I'm alright. Really, I'm fine.
[Harrison and Brennan are taking a deposition from Molly, and Charlie is acting as her legal counsel]
Harrison Wellstone: Were the women who worked for you call girls?
Molly Bloom: No sir.
Brennan: They never exchanged sex for money?
Molly Bloom: No.
Harrison Wellstone: Have you ever exchanged sex for money?
Charlie Jaffey: [interrupting them] No!
Molly Bloom: I think he was talking to me.
Douglas Downey: There's a poem... a famous... uh... a poem about... thoughts left unexpressed. "Two roads emerged from the woods. Do they explode? I dunno" You like poetry?
Molly Bloom: I did until a second ago
