Alan King: Andy Stone
Ace Rothstein : You know, I don't know if I could do this even if I wanted to. The Gaming Commission would never give me a license. I have at least two dozen gambling and bookmaking pinches on me.
Andy Stone : You don't have to have a license to work in a casino. All you gotta do is apply for one. The state law says you can work in a casino while they're processing your application. They got a ten-year backlog.
Ace Rothstein : But what happens when they do find out?
Andy Stone : Why would they want to find out? We're putting a hundred million into this desert here. Why would they want to lock us out? And besides, they'll never find out. All you got to do is keep changing your job title. Like, uh, from Casino Executive to Food and Beverage Chairman. And what happens is they take your application and they put it at the bottom of the pile. I know guys working there for thirty years who don't have a license.
Ace Rothstein : [Exhales] It's a tough proposition, Andy. You know, if I did it, I'd have to run it my way.
Andy Stone : You got it.
Ace Rothstein : I'm serious. No interference.
Andy Stone : Nobody's going to interfere with you running the casino. I guarantee it.
Andy Stone : The old man said, 'Maybe your friend should give in.' And when the old man says 'maybe', that's like a papal bull. Not only should you quit, you should run!
