  1. Brad Pitt is probably thinking "I hate the early 2000s, I can't wait in 3 years when all these guys are washed up actors".

  2. Hey, Russ! Rusty. What's up, man? Let me ask you a question. Are you incorporated? You should think about it. I talked to my manager… – Bernie? – Not Bernie. My business manager. Actually, they're both named Bernie. He said what we do could be considered research… …for a future gig, so I could make it a tax write-off. The one thing is, and this is his thing and it's stupid… …but I'd have to pay you by check. Or we could just stick to cash. Yeah, let's just stick to cash. We'll begin with five-card draw. Everyone remember that? Who wants to start us out? Josh? Josh. To the left. Deal to your left. – Shane? – Hit me. – It's not blackjack. – Dude! Looking at them doesn't change them. You know what you have. – Left. Left. – Left, I'll get it. Lady bets. Let's keep it moving. – Blue. – Blue, that's a 50. – I'll call? – Okay. Shane's calling. 50. What the hell, it's only pocket change. That's your business. Pretend it's for a reason. Yeah, thanks, man. – Right. – How many? – Four. – You don't want four. You wanna fold. – I wanna fold? – Fold. Is that good? You're done. Let's take that. You're done. You're done. You have three pairs. You can't have six cards in a five-card game. – Maybe one was mine. – Wasn't me. Fellas! All reds. What up, dog? I'm gonna love spending your money. I'm gonna get my car washed. – How's the game going? – Longest hour of my life. – What? – I'm running away with your wife. Great. Isn't that hard, crossing over from television to film? Not for me, dude. Hey, Russ. We got another player… …if that's cool with you. What do you do for a living? If you don't mind me asking. Why would I mind you asking? Two cards. I just got out of prison. – Really? – Why were you in prison? I stole things. You stole things? Like jewels? Incan matrimonial head masks. – Any money in Incan matrimonial…? – Head masks. Some. Don't let him fool you. There's loads if you can move them. I'll take one. But you can't. – My fence was confident. – You don't need a fence. – Some people lack vision. – Everybody in cellblock E. That's $500. – What's the first lesson in poker? – Never bet on the… – Leave emotion at the door. – Right, Topher. Today's lesson: How to draw out the bluff. That much money, this early… He has nothing better than a pair of face cards. Barry? All right. I fold. – Josh? – Don't worry, I'm game. I will see your $500 and I will raise you another… …$500 of my own. – That's a very handsome bet. But don't push him too high, too fast. Keep him on the leash. – Holly? – Call. Call. And I'll call. I'll see your $500 and raise you $2000. Guys, you do what you like. That's a lot of money. I'm staying in. He's trying to buy his way out of his bluff. – Josh? – Two. Thattagirl. Call. – Call. – Call. Let's see them. I'm not sure what four nines does, but the ace, I think, is pretty high. Thanks for the tip on bluffing.

  3. Great poker advice. It makes perfect sense to put a big bluff to win a small pot in a multiway hand out of position at a table full of fish who call anything. Brad Pitt would have been right 99/100 times here.

  4. Brad Pitt is always sticking something in his fucking mouth. I saw that on some video once and now I see it every time I watch one of his movies.

  5. the irony is not just that they played a bunch of rich newbies, but that ocean and rusty scammed a bunch of actors by acting

  6. It's an easy scene to miss what happened. Brad Pitt dealt him 4 of a kind, then set up the scam. He knew they were all vulnerable to get scammed and did it to them.

  7. “Was it hard to do? Switching over from television to film?”
    “Not for me, dude!”

    This whole scene is an ace.

  8. So if they think George Clooney is bluffing, why do they all call? Even if he is bluffing, they still have to beat Brad Pitt and 2 other opponents. The only one that was smart, was 7th Heaven.

  9. sorry folks, but can anybody explain what just happened? like did Ocean and Rusty win it all at the end?

  10. It wasn't till I grew up did I understand the tax thing they were talking about. And why did Rusty wanted to stick with cash.

  11. Just realized how well did Ocean and Rusty understood each other, even more than just the telekinetic conversations. Rusty knew Ocean's up for a new plan when he saw him. So they silently hatch this fake bluff to both help Rusty end this card lessons gig and get a little cash in their hands.

  12. Does anybody know what type of place is that called that Brad Pitt is watching the chicks dance in the glass? I get it, it’s a bar. But aren’t those things mostly called peep shows?

  13. At first, I thought this scene is all about establishing Danny being better than Rusty, but it just hit me that they conned the young artist without even talking to each other. Rust intentionally made the pot bigger by "not calling out the bluff" and ensuring that Danny will walk away with a lot of money. And they even gave approving look they gave to each other after the con was complete.

  14. Just so we're straight. You have to run five miles. Shoot 18 holes of golf, 78 strokes or under, in less than three hours. And the ball has to be in the cup before time expires for $10,000.
    Bet?

  15. "Thanks for the tip on calling out the bluff." Love that final line. Mostly because he probably meant it.

  16. So we got 7th heaven, One Tree Hill, That 70s Show, Charmed, and Dawson’s Creek in one room…what an era

  17. I've seen this many times and never noticed George Clooney walks past Brad Pitt while he's drinking lol.
