Famous quotes containing the word bet:

    Peter: I’ll bet there isn’t a good piggy-back rider in your whole family. I never knew a rich man yet who could piggy-back ride.
    Ellie: You’re prejudiced.
    Peter: You show me a good piggy-backer and I’ll show you a real human. Now you take Abraham Lincoln, for instance. A natural piggy-backer.
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)

    I see that every man that went in had his pockets bulging, or something muffled up under his coat—and I see it warn’t no perfumery either, not by a long sight. I smelt sickly eggs by the barrel, and rotten cabbages, and such things; and if I know the signs of a dead cat being around, and I bet I do, there was sixty-four of them went in. I shoved in there for a minute, but it was too various for me, I couldn’t stand it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Roger Thornhill: Tell me, how does a girl like you get to be a girl like you?
    Eve Kendall: Lucky I guess.
    Roger Thornhill: No, not lucky. Naughty, wicked, up to no good. Ever kill anyone? Because I bet you could tease a man to death without half trying. So stop trying.
    Ernest Lehman (b.1920)
