The Hustler (1961) - Fast Eddie, let's play some pool - The ten best quotes

Director: Robert Rossen
Screenplay: Robert Rossen 
Starring: Paul Newman; George C. Scott; Jackie Gleason; Piper Laurie

Ah, yes, greek tragedy in a poolroom. You sure got that right.  It's amazing how well Robert Rossen's The Hustler holds up after all these years. Standout performances from all involved: Newman, Scott, Laurie and, of course, Jackie Gleason as the legendary Minnesota Fats. Here are some of the best quotes from a movie laden with great dialogue.

- What some free advice? - Big John
- Big John, do you think this boy is a hustler? Fats
- Do you like to gamble, Eddie? Gamble money on pool games?
- Fast Eddie, let's play some pool. - Minnesota Fats
- I'm gonna beat'im, Mister. I beat'im all night and I'm gonna beat'im all day - Eddie Felson
- I'm the best you've ever seen, Fats. I'm the best there is. And even if you beat me, I'm still the best... - Eddie Felson
- Stick with this kid, he's a loser... - Bert Gordon
- I gotta hunch, Fat Man, I gotta hunch it's me from here on in... - Eddie Felson
- Get on me, Bert, I can't lose - Eddie Felson
- Shoot pool, Fast Eddie - Fats
- Where do you think you're going? YOU OWE ME MONEY! - Bert Gordon
- Fat Man, you shoot a great game of pool. - Eddie Felson

Interesting side note: If you dig this movie (and who doesn't?), check out an episode of The Twilight Zone series called "A Game Of Pool". It has a great Jonathan Winters as "Fats Brown" and Jack Klugman as the pool shark. A classic.
