Bonzai Artists... (11.50)

Wags: We're not buying, for now.

Dollar Bill: Not Carthill. Don't fuck me like that. It's a Hondo Havlicek. Can't miss.

Wags: It is bad timing, I know. But keep on liquidating.

Donny: We were up north of the timberline. Why are we bailing? 

We're not bailing. We're pruning, slowly, so we don't scare the market. And keep this on the fucking DL. We need to be deliberate and delicate about this. Bonsai artists.

John Joseph "Hondo" Havlicek (born April 8, 1940) is an American retired professional basketball player who competed for 16 seasons with the Boston Celtics, winning eight NBA championships, four of them coming in his first four seasons. In the National Basketball Association, only teammates Bill Russell and Sam Jones won more championships during their playing careers, and Havlicek is one of three NBA players with an unsurpassed 8–0 record in NBA Finals series outcomes. Havlicek is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of the game and was inducted as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1984. He was a three-sport athlete at Bridgeport High School in Bridgeport, Ohio.

Bonsai cultivation and care involves the long-term cultivation of small trees in containers, called bonsai in the Japanese tradition of this art form. Similar practices exist in other Japanese art forms and in other cultures, including saikei (Japanese), penjing (Chinese), and hòn non bộ (Vietnamese). Trees are difficult to cultivate in containers, which restrict root growth, nutrition uptake, and resources for transpiration (primarily soil moisture). In addition to the root constraints of containers, bonsai trunks, branches, and foliage are extensively shaped and manipulated to meet aesthetic goals. Specialized tools and techniques are used to protect the health and vigor of the subject tree. Over time, the artistic manipulation of small trees in containers has led to a number of cultivation and care approaches that successfully meet the practical and the artistic requirements of bonsai and similar traditions.

Heading for Omaha Beach... (38.27)

Wendy: How are the troops holding up?

Dollar Bill: Like we're on a fucking Higgins boat heading straight for Omaha beach.

The landing craft, vehicle, personnel (LCVP) or Higgins boat was a landing craft used extensively in amphibious landings in World War II. The craft was designed by Andrew Higgins based on boats made for operating in swamps and marshes. More than 23,358 were built, by Higgins Industries and licensees. Typically constructed from plywood, this shallow-draft, barge-like boat could ferry a roughly platoon-sized complement of 36 men to shore at 9 knots (17 km/h). Men generally entered the boat by climbing down a cargo net hung from the side of their troop transport; they exited by charging down the boat's lowered bow ramp.

Omaha, commonly known as Omaha Beach, was the code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944, during World War II. 'Omaha' refers to a section of the coast of Normandy, France, facing the English Channel 8 kilometers (5 mi) long, from east of Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes to west of Vierville-sur-Mer on the right bank of the Douve River estuary and an estimated 150-foot (45 m) tall cliffs. Landings here were necessary to link the British landings to the east at Gold with the American landing to the west at Utah, thus providing a continuous lodgement on the Normandy coast of the Bay of the Seine. Taking Omaha was to be the responsibility of United States Army troops, with sea transport, mine sweeping, and a naval bombardment force provided predominantly by the United States Navy and Coast Guard, with contributions from the British, Canadian, and Free French navies.

I'm Keyser Soze, motherfucker... (21.33)

Dollar Bill: I wrote a letter to my wife, the whole story. I just sent it.

Chuck: Uh You just blew up your family for Bobby Axelrod?

Dollar Bill: I'm Keyser Soze, motherfucker.

Keyser Söze is a fictional character and the main antagonist in the 1995 film The Usual Suspects, written by Christopher McQuarrie and directed by Bryan Singer. According to petty con artist Roger "Verbal" Kint (Kevin Spacey), Söze is a crime lord whose ruthlessness and influence have acquired a legendary, even mythical, status among police and criminals alike. Further events in the story make these accounts unreliable, and, in a twist ending, a police sketch identifies Kint and Söze as one and the same. The character was inspired by real life murderer John List and the spy thriller No Way Out, which featured a shadowy KGB mole.

I don't want to invest in it. I want to get on it... (32.11)

Wags: Do any of you have juice with Raya?

Ben Kim: I could build a model for it.

Wags: I don't want to invest in it. I want to get on it.

Dollar Bill: What is that?

High-end hookup app. Tinder for the rich and famous.

Wags: That's so reductive.

It's exclusive, and it's about connection.

Raya is a private, membership based community for people all over the world to connect and collaborate. It launched in March 2015 as an iOS application. Early on, many members used the application to meet other members romantically.The app describes itself as "A private network for people in creative industries” and in January 2017 the app launched a feature entitled "Work" that allowed members to collaborate on work related projects. The app asks members to apply and log in with their Instagram account causing many members to conjecture if admittance is determined by the applicant's Instagram influence and how many active Raya members follow them. However, many community members with small Instagram followings seem to contradict this theory and the admittance algorithm remains a mystery. It costs $8/month (in US dollars) to be a member of Raya.

Go ahead, seize their assets... (10.10)

Everready: Well, the note exchange requires that the town pay you first, before any of its other financial obligations, like union contracts with town workers, teachers' salaries, all that. Austerity just means you enforce that.

Dollar Bill: Yes. Go ahead, seize their assets, like Singer did in Argentina.

Paul Elliott Singer (born August 22, 1944) is an American billionaire hedge fund manager, activist, investor, vulture capitalist, and philanthropist. His hedge fund, Elliott Management Corporation (EMC)—specializes in distressed debt acquisitions. Singer is also the founder and CEO of NML Capital Limited, a Cayman Islands-based offshore unit of Elliott Management Corporation. In 2017, Forbes rated Singer's net worth as $2.9 billion.

After Argentina defaulted on its debt in 2002, the Elliott-owned company NML Capital Limited refused to accept the Argentine offer to pay less than 30 cents per dollar of debt. Elliott sued Argentina for the debt's value, and the lower UK courts found that Argentina had state immunity. Elliott successfully appealed the case to the UK Supreme Court, which ruled that Elliott had the right to attempt to seize Argentine property in the United Kingdom, and on October 2, 2012 Singer arranged for a Ghanaian Court order to detain an Argentine naval vessel in a Ghanaian port in an effort to force Argentina to pay the debt, but was rebuffed when the seizure was barred by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. In February 2013, the U.S. appeals court heard Argentina's appeal in the case of its default and debt to NML. In March 2013, Argentina offered a new plan, which was dismissed first by the lower courts and then the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on August 23, 2013, and then again in June 2014 in the U.S. Supreme Court. In March 2014, NML Capital unsuccessfully attempted to satisfy court awards by suing, seeking the rights to two satellite-launch contracts bought by Argentina valued at $113 million. In early 2016, US courts ruled that Argentina must make full payments to holdout bondholders by February 29. In February 2016 Argentina reached an agreement with Singer.

You just called the Macho Man bullshit... (33.25)

Mafee: A Hell in a Cell poster? Autographed by Taker and Mankind?! - Ben, did you get me this? - What? I know it wasn't you.

Dollar Bill: Everything after Sammartino/Zbyszko is bullshit.

Mafee: Okay, you just called the Macho Man bullshit. What was Stan Stasiak and his heart punch? 

Taylor: Actually, I got it.

Mafee: Oh. Uh, thanks.

Hell in a Cell (2018) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event and WWE Network event, produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brands. It took place on September 16, 2018, at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.[3] It was the tenth event under the Hell in a Cell chronology. Eight matches were contested at the event, including one on the pre-show. The main event, which was a Universal Championship Hell in a Cell match between defending champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman with special guest referee Mick Foley, ended in a no-contest after previous champion Brock Lesnar appeared and attacked both men, rendering them unable to continue. This was also Strowman's Money in the Bank cash-in match. In the other Hell in a Cell match, which opened the main show, Randy Orton defeated Jeff Hardy. Other prominent matches included AJ Styles controversially retaining the WWE Championship against Samoa Joe, Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair to win her second SmackDown Women's Championship, and Ronda Rousey retained the Raw Women's Championship against Alexa Bliss.


Hell in a Cell is a professional wrestling cage-based match which originated in 1997 in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). It features a large "cell" structure, a 5-sided cuboid made from open-weave steel mesh chain-link fencing which encloses the ring and ringside area. Unlike the steel cage match, only an in-ring pinfall or submission will ordinarily result in a win (though in Hell in a Cell at Judgment Day 2002 Triple H pinned Chris Jericho atop the cell to win the match), and there are no disqualifications. The original Cell was 16 ft (4.9 m) high and weighed over two tons but has since been replaced by a more robust version of 20 ft (6.1 m) and five tons. The first match took place at Badd Blood: In Your House in October 1997; a total of 40 Hell in a Cell matches have occurred. The match type spawned its own pay-per-view event in 2009, WWE Hell in a Cell, since which the event has been held annually in October and occasionally September. This event generally features one to three Hell in a Cell matches on the same card.

Kid's the next Sal Bando... (5.00)

Dollar Bill: Aparicio Rodriguez. Plays third. Kid's the next Sal Bando. First round draft pick next June. I've been paying for private lessons for him since he was 13 in exchange for a chunk of the kid's future signing bonus. It's recoup time. 2,000 percent ROI, even counting the dozen other kids I invested in but had to cut loose.

Salvatore Leonard Bando (born February 13, 1944) is a former third baseman and executive in professional baseball who played for the Kansas City and Oakland Athletics (1966–76) and Milwaukee Brewers (1977–81). He played college baseball at Arizona State University for coach Bobby Winkles. During the A's championship years of 1971-75, he captained the team and led the club in runs batted in three times. He was the second American League third baseman to hit 200 career home runs, joining Brooks Robinson, and retired among the all-time leaders in games (5th, 1896), assists (6th, 3720) and double plays (7th, 345) at his position. In a 16-season career, Bando was a .254 hitter with 242 home runs and 1039 RBI in 2019 games played. His younger brother Chris was a catcher for the Cleveland Indians. Over four consecutive American League Championship Series from 1971–74, he hit five home runs in 17 games, including two in a 1973 game and a solo shot in Game 3 of the 1974 ALCS, a 1-0 victory. Playing almost exclusively at third base in Oakland, Bando played every infield position while with the Brewers, even making one appearance as a relief pitcher in a 1979 game.

That's the Frozen Man, right?... (7.13)
OetzitheIceman02.jpg

Dollar Bill: I've been humping my ass into the city, hour and a half in traffic, into this swanky Manhattan office, and you haven't called a single meeting because the government's frozen all the assets. So when you called this meeting, I assumed that meant it was go-time and they've finally been unfrozen.

Wags: Not yet. Still frozen like Otzi in the goddamn Alps.

Ben Kim: That's the Frozen Man, right?

Dollar Bill: I need those funds to flow like the Kancamangus Rapids. I'm ready to rock and roll on full auto right the fuck now.


Ötzi, also called the Iceman, the Similaun Man (Italian: Mummia del Similaun), the Man from Hauslabjoch, the Tyrolean Iceman, and the Hauslabjoch mummy, is the well-preserved natural mummy of a man who lived between 3400 and 3100 BCE. The mummy was found in September 1991 in the Ötztal Alps, hence the nickname "Ötzi", near Similaun mountain and Hauslabjoch on the border between Austria and Italy. He is Europe's oldest known natural human mummy, and has offered an unprecedented view of Chalcolithic (Copper Age) Europeans. His body and belongings are displayed in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy.

They ride in on horses?... (9.48)

Wags: The idea dinner. Top-ten hedge-fund managers in the city will be there. These rat fucks are how these billionaires measure themselves. Even being in the room confers upon you almost mythical status, like you're a knight of the Round Table.

Dollar Bill: They ride in on horses?

Wags: Maybachs.

Maybach Motorenbau is a defunct German car manufacturer that today exists as a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz. The company was founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and his son, originally as a subsidiary of Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH, and it was known as Luftfahrzeug-Motorenbau GmbH until 1999.

In 1960, Maybach was acquired by Daimler-Benz. The name returned as a standalone ultra-luxury car brand in the late 20th century and early 21st century, sharing significant components with Mercedes-Benz cars. After slow sales, Maybach ceased to be a standalone brand by 2013, and it became (in 2015) a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, which is owned by Daimler AG. As of 2018, Daimler produces an ultra-luxury edition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class under the Mercedes-Maybach name.

We got a spot in Mystic.... (29.50)

Dollar Bill: Got any summer plans?

Bobby: No. Guess Lara and I will need to talk about it. The kids.

Dollar Bill: I don't like to go far. We got a spot in Mystic. While the family's looking at the boats and shit, I can play a little pai gow.

Spyros: I was planning to go back and climb Kili. How much vacay time is it culturally appropriate to take here? Ah, maybe I'll just do base camp.

Pai gow is a Chinese gambling game, played with a set of 32 Chinese dominoes. It is played in major casinos in China (including Macau); the United States (including Las Vegas, Nevada; Reno, Nevada; Connecticut; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Pennsylvania; Mississippi; and cardrooms in California); Canada (including Edmonton, Alberta and Calgary, Alberta); Australia; and, New Zealand. The name "pai gow" is sometimes used to refer to a card game called pai gow poker (or “double-hand poker”), which is loosely based on pai gow.

Is this couples therapy?... (15.22)

Dollar Bil: Is this couples therapy? Is this what couples therapy is like?

Wendy: You've never been?

Spyros: I've never been married but I've gone to couples with three separate women.

Dollar Bil: Never did it. Which may be how I stay married to two women.

Wendy: This isn't couples. But behind pretty much every shouting match is a communications breakdown.

Spyros: What we got here is failure to communicate.

Dollar Bil: A failure to communicate.

Wendy: Actually it's both. Strother Martin says it one way, Newman another. But, yes.

Cool_Hand_Luke_Poster.gif

The phrase "What we've got here is failure to communicate" is a quotation from the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke, spoken in the movie first by Strother Martin (as the Captain, a prison warden) and, later, paraphrased by Paul Newman (as Luke, a stubborn prisoner).

The context of the first delivery of the line is:

Captain: You gonna get used to wearing them chains after a while, Luke. Don't you never stop listening to them clinking, 'cause they gonna remind you what I been saying for your own good.

Luke: (sarcastically) I wish you'd stop being so good to me, Cap'n.

Captain: Don't you ever talk that way to me. (pause, then hitting him) NEVER! NEVER! (Luke rolls down hill; to other prisoners)

What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men. The Captain's line is often misquoted as "What we have here is a failure to communicate".[2] This is actually a quote by Zero Mostel in the 1969 comedy movie The Great Bank Robbery.

Towards the end of the movie, Luke persists in his rebellious nature and takes a stab at freedom – stealing a dump truck and taking flight. After his dramatic escape from the Florida chain gang prison, Luke abandons the truck and enters a church, only to be surrounded by police moments later. Knowing that he is caught, he walks to a window facing the police and mocks the Captain by repeating the first part of his speech ("What we got here is a failure to communicate."). He is immediately shot in the neck by Boss Godfrey.

The phrase ranks at number 11 on the American Film Institute list, AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes.

Vintage ref. Nice... (30.00)

Dollar Bill: Mafee! 

Mafee: What up, brawler? 

Dollar Bill: Got a trade I want you to execute.

Mafee: You want to go long on Mendham Pharmaceuticals? 

Dollar Bill: Like Staubach to Drew Pearson.

Mafee: Vintage ref. Nice.

This is a famous American football reference (a “vintage ref.” in Mafee’s terms) in relation the ‘Hail Mary pass’, also known as a shot play, is a very long forward pass in American football, made in desperation, with only a small chance of success and time running out on the clock. The term became widespread after a December 28, 1975 NFL playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings, when Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach (a Roman Catholic and fan of The Godfather Part II (1974), whose character Fredo had popularized the phrase) said about his game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Drew Pearson, "I closed my eyes and said a Hail Mary."

No Fudgie?... (46.23)

Ben Kim: Do you know what this is about? 

Mafee: Somebody's birthday. We're all getting a Fudgie the Whale.

Ben Kim: I'm 99 percent sure you're lying. But the one percent is bursting with hope.

Wags: All right. In what I can only pray will not be a regular occurrence, Bill Stearn will take a page from the Otis Redding songbook and try a little tenderness.

Dollar Bill: Yeah, um okay. Compliance is to be complied with. Ari Spyros is a human man worthy of the respect due to any freeholder. And I apologize for the remarks I made to and about him. Oh, my god.

Ben: No Fudgie?

Fudgie the Whale.png

Fudgie The Whale is this cake.

Otis Ray Redding Jr. (September 9, 1941 – December 10, 1967) was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, arranger, and talent scout. He is considered one of the greatest singers in the history of American popular music and a seminal artist in soul music and rhythm and blues. Redding's style of singing gained inspiration from the gospel music that preceded the genre. His singing style influenced many other soul artists of the 1960s. During his lifetime, his recordings were produced by Stax Records, based in Memphis, Tennessee.

"Try a Little Tenderness" is a song written by Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly, and Harry M. Woods. It was first recorded on December 8, 1932, by the Ray Noble Orchestra (with vocals by Val Rosing). Ted Lewis (Columbia 2748 D) and Ruth Etting (Melotone 12625) had hits with it in 1933. Bing Crosby also recorded it on January 9, 1933 for Brunswick Records. The song appears in Dr. Strangelove (1964) and Pretty in Pink (1986).

A popular version in an entirely new form was recorded by soul artist Otis Redding in 1966. Redding was backed on his version by Booker T. & the M.G.'s, and Stax staff producer Isaac Hayes worked on the arrangement. Redding's recording features a slow, soulful opening that eventually builds into a frenetic R&B conclusion, incorporating elements from the Duke Ellington–Lee Gaines song "Just Squeeze Me (But Please Don't Tease Me)" as well as the words "sock it to me." It peaked at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has been named on a number of "best songs of all time" lists, including those from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is in the 204th position on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. A live version performed in 1967 at the Monterey International Pop Festival was also recorded.

I have a play, virgin Intel... (21.14)

Spyros: Bill.

Dollar Bill: Yeah?

Spyros: We've had our issues, but I have a play, virgin Intel. Your kind of thing.

Dollar Bill: Nah. Real shame. I only talk ideas with current employees of Axe Capital.

Spyros: This is the Clarence Beeks shit, but I guess you don't want to hear about it.

Clarence Beeks is a character played by Paul Gleason in the 1983 movie Trading Places starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd.

I like what I hear... (23.52)

Dollar Bill: You have 30 seconds.

Spyros: I can still access a list of all the public companies being investigated by the SEC, but have not disclosed the investigation to their shareholders. With your special brand of knowledge, you can determine which of these inquiries have teeth and which are bullshit. You can short the companies that you think will go down when the investigations come to light

Dollar Bill: And go long on those that get dinged by the bad press from being looked into, and shoot up when they're ultimately cleared.

Spyros: Right Said Fred.

Dollar Bill: Okay. I like what I hear. Other than that Right Said Fred bullshit.

Right Said Fred is an English band based in London and formed by brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass in 1989. Guitarist Rob Manzoli joined the duo in 1990. The group has achieved multi-platinum status and has also won two Ivor Novello Awards – for "I'm Too Sexy" (1991) and "Deeply Dippy" (1992).

The band’s name is taken from "Right Said Fred", a 1962 novelty song written by Ted Dicks and Myles Rudge. It is about three men (the narrator, "Fred" and "Charlie") working as manual labourers who are trying to move an unidentified object (although it is clarified that it has feet, a seat, handles and candleholders) in a building without success, eventually failing and giving up after having dismantled the object, part-demolished the building (including removing a door, wall and the ceiling) and taking numerous tea breaks. The lyrics do not specify whether Fred recovers from "half a ton of rubble falling on his dome" prior to the others having a final teabreak and going home.

Ya think, Rickles?... (44.20)

Dollar Bill: And I can't believe I'm fucking doing this, but I may have been a bit hasty in the personal insult and car wrecking departments

Wags: Ya think, Rickles? You called him a pants shitter on the trading floor.

Donald Jay Rickles (May 8, 1926 – April 6, 2017) was an American stand-up comedian, actor and author. He became well known as an insult comic. His prominent film roles included Run Silent, Run Deep (1958) with Clark Gable and Kelly's Heroes (1970) with Clint Eastwood, and beginning in 1976 he enjoyed a two-year run starring in the NBC television sitcom C.P.O. Sharkey. He received widespread exposure as a popular guest on numerous talk and variety shows, including The Dean Martin Show, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Late Show with David Letterman, and later voiced Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Storyfranchise. He won a Primetime Emmy Award for the 2007 documentary Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project.

Where's my fucking lucky dollar?... (8.19)

Dollar Bill: Where's my fucking lucky dollar? Unless you want to wheel through the rest of your lives like Teddy fucking Pendergrass, you will tell me where it is.

Ben: Where what is?

Dollar Bill: New Girl! This your idea of making a name for yourself?

Bonnie: My name is Bonnie

Dollar Bill: What the fuck does that have to do with my lucky dollar.

Bonnie: I've never seen it.

Mafee: I thought you saw everything.

Bonnie: I can't even lay eyes on his station from down here.

Dollar Bill: Oh, you've seen it. Everyone's seen it. And everyone knows I won a huge liar's poker game with it against Carl Icahn. It's brought me luck ever since.

Theodore DeReese "Teddy" Pendergrass (March 26, 1950 – January 13, 2010) was an American singer. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he initially rose to musical fame as the lead singer of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. After leaving the group over monetary disputes in 1976, Pendergrass launched a successful solo career under the Philadelphia International label, releasing five consecutive platinum albums, then a record for an African-American R&B artist. Pendergrass' career was suspended after a near-fatal car crash in March 1982 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. Pendergrass continued his successful solo career until announcing his retirement in 2007. Pendergrass died from colon cancer in January 2010.

Liar's poker is an American bar game that combines statistical reasoning with bluffing, and is played with the eight digits of the serial number on U.S. dollar bills. The digits are usually ranked with the 1 as "ace" as the highest value, followed by 0 as "10", down to 2 as the lowest. Each player holds one bill, unseen by the other players. The objective is to guess how often a particular digit appears among all the bills held by all the players. Each guess or bid must be higher in quantity, or equal in quantity but higher in value, than the previous bid. The round ends when all the other players challenge a bid.

Carl Celian Icahn (born February 16, 1936) is an American businessman, investor, and philanthropist. He is the founder and controlling shareholder of Icahn Enterprises, a diversified conglomerate holding company based in New York City, formerly known as American Real Estate Partners. He is also Chairman of Federal-Mogul, an American developer, manufacturer and supplier of powertrain components and vehicle safety products. In the 1980s Icahn developed a reputation as a "corporate raider" after profiting from the hostile takeover and asset stripping of the American airline TWA. According to Forbes magazine, Icahn had a net worth of $17 billion in 2019, making him the 26th-wealthiest person on the Forbes 400, and the 5th-wealthiest hedge fund manager. Icahn served as special economic adviser on financial regulation to US President Donald Trump briefly in 2017, leaving amid concerns of conflicts of interest.

Is that a Lisa Ann Fleshlight?... (9.10)
LisaAnn.jpg

Mafee: Is that a Lisa Ann Fleshlight?

Rudy I don't know.

Dollar bill: Ew!

Rudy: Yes, they're gag gifts, I'm going to a bachelor party tonight.

Whoever took my dollar, give it the fuck back because I will find you!

Mafee: All right, Liam Neeson.

Lisa Ann (born May 9, 1972) is an American pornographic actress and radio personality. She has also worked as a director and talent agent. She has received mainstream notice for parodying former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in six adult films. She is a member of the AVN, XRCO, and Urban X Halls of Fame.

I can’t quite bring myself to explain the Fleshlight thing but click on the link. Official website here.

Liam John Neeson OBE (born 7 June 1952) is an actor from Northern Ireland. He has been nominated for a number of awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actor, a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. Empire magazine ranked Neeson among both the "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" and "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time". The reference here is to his role in the Taken movie franchise.

Short for frottage... (34.22)

Dollar Bill: Frotty Anisman. I should have sniffed him out from all the Sadelle's they carted in before.

Bonnie: The fuck they call him Frotty? 

Mafee: Short for frottage. As in: stay out of close quarters with him.

Rudy: I'm still lost.

Bonnie: The practice of rubbing against another person's clothed body in a crowd for sexual gratification. But for the record, it's pronounced frot-tahge. Totally gross unless you're ScarJo and JoGo in Don Jon. Then it's hot as fuck.

Sadelle’s is where the food they lay out for Frotty comes from.

ScarJo is Scarlett Ingrid Johansson (born November 22, 1984), the American actress and singer. Johansson is the world's highest-paid actress, has made multiple appearances in the Forbes Celebrity 100, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

JoGo is Joseph Gordon Levitt who directed and starred in Don Jon, alongside ScarJo. Frottage was involved. Are you keeping up? Good.

Don Jon is a 2013 American romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Produced by Ram Bergman and Nicolas Chartier, the film stars Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, and Julianne Moore, with Rob Brown, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson, and Tony Danza in supporting roles. The film premiered under its original title Don Jon's Addiction at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18, 2013, and had its wide release in the United States on September 27, 2013.

You got a problem with the 'Commodes'?... (17.32)

Dollar Bill: You got a problem with the 'Commodes’?

Bonnie: Was expecting you to bring more Steely Dan.

Dollar Bill: Oh. I hold back the top shelf for my birthday.

Bill is joking, he means Commodores, of course. Their song Brick House is playing in the background.

Commodores is an American funk/soul band, which was at its peak in the late 1970s through the mid 1980s. The members of the group met as mostly freshmen at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) in 1968, and signed with Motown in November 1972, having first caught the public eye opening for the Jackson 5 while on tour. The group's most successful period was in the late 1970s and early 1980s when Lionel Richie was the co-lead singer. The band's biggest hit singles are ballads such as "Easy", "Three Times a Lady", and "Nightshift"; and funky dance hits which include "Brick House", "Fancy Dancer", "Lady (You Bring Me Up)", and "Too Hot ta Trot". In 1986, the Commodores won their first Grammy for the song "Nightshift".

The magnificent Steely Dan is an American rock band founded in 1972 by core members Walter Becker (guitars, bass, backing vocals) and Donald Fagen (keyboards, lead vocals). Blending jazz, traditional pop, R&B, and sophisticated studio production with cryptic and ironic lyrics, the band enjoyed critical and commercial success starting from the early 1970s until breaking up in 1981. Throughout their career, the duo recorded with a revolving cast of session musicians, and in 1974 retired from live performances to become a studio-only band. Rolling Stone has called them "the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies". After the group disbanded in 1981, Becker and Fagen were less active throughout most of the next decade, though a cult following remained devoted to the group. Since reuniting in 1993, Steely Dan has toured steadily and released two albums of new material, the first of which, Two Against Nature, earned a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. They have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2001. VH1 ranked Steely Dan at #82 on their list of the 100 greatest musical artists of all time. Founding member Walter Becker died on September 3, 2017.

p.s. Later in the scene the song Wonder by the equally magnificent Natalie Merchant provides the soundtrack. That one proudly selected by Ben Kim.
