The bitch is a booster... (17.57)

Chuck: Ira, uh, this is Pete Decker. He's in the health and conditioning industry.

Ira: Is this a bailout?

Chuck: More like an intervention. Tell him what you told me, Pete.

Decker: The bitch is a booster. The bitch is a born thief.

Ira: You talking about my wife? You looked into her?

Chuck: She needed looking into, so I looked.

I never would’ve got this one. Thanks to Brian Koppelman for the heads up! Decker is lifting these lines from House of Games the 1987 movie written and directed by David Mamet in which a psychiatrist comes to the aid of a compulsive gambler and is led by a smooth-talking grifter into the shadowy but compelling world of stings, scams, and con men.
