"Sneaky Pete" TV show dialogue on bridge cheating

“Sneaky Pete” is a new crime drama available on Amazon Prime. A con man, on the run from a vicious gangster, takes cover by assuming the identity of his prison cellmate, Pete, thereby reuniting with Pete’s estranged family. The cast is headed by Bryan Cranston, well known from both “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Breaking Bad”. There are many interesting characters and if you are up for a little bloody mayhem occasionally it is entertaining.

The second episode discloses how Pete earns the ire of Vince, the gangster, by duping the gangster into giving him $100,000 to run a scam on a bridge cheater.

This is the pertinent dialogue when Pete first meets with Pete.

Vince: My Aunt Georgia taught me. She used to say poker is for boys. Bridge – that’s for grownups.

Later, Vince wants to know how the scam will work.

Vince: Who’s the whale (mark)?

Pete: His name is, uh, Charles McGregor. He, uh, runs - well, he ran a small, very successful hedge fund, and now he, uh, plays bridge full time.

Vince: Uh, another Wall Street asshole playing bridge, huh? So what’s the play?

Pete: We draw him and his partner into a high-stakes game. We let them win for three weeks in a row, and then we clean them out.

Vince: How does he cheat? What is it, a cough code, or are we playing footsies like the Italians?

Pete: Uh, yeah, it took me a while to figure it out. At first I thought it was like the Norwegians, right? But then I noticed how he moves his cards when he’s sorting. Uh, the first card he moves indicates the suit. If he moves it all the way to the left, it’s spades. Second slot is hearts, so on, so forth. The second card indicates a number, which he moves to the right.
