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 didn’t realize you were an art collector. I thought you just collected corpses. I’ll bet you paid plenty for this little piece of sculpture. She’s worth every dollar of it, take it from me. She puts her heart into her work, in fact, her whole body.
    Ernest Lehman (b. 1920)

    I could draw Bloom County with my nose and pay my cleaning lady to write it, and I’d bet I wouldn’t lose 10% of my papers over the next twenty years. Such is the nature of comic-strips. Once established, their half-life is usually more than nuclear waste.
    Berkeley Breathed (b. 1957)
