The quote is spoken by Ricky Jay in the film / play : House of Games by David Mamet and appears in a song by St. Etienne...
You only call? Well, let's go visit Mr. More. Your eight hundred, and I'll raise twenty-five hundred bucks
I can't stand it
South. I'm going south
South Street Seaport, the man says. Can't stand the heat, you can't stand it
You wanna play cards? The bet is two and a half thou
The bet? I'll tell you what the bet is. And I'll raise you six thousand dollars
You son of a bitch, you've been steamrolling over me all night! What are you trying to tell me? One card, you've got a flush, a full, what? I think you're bluffing, pal. I think you're trying to buy it
Then you're going to have to give me some respect, or give me some money
I think you're bluffing
What are you, Joe Capp? I didn't ask what you think. Raise, call, or fold
I should raise your ass. But I'm just gonna call
My marker's good for the money
What is this marker? Where are you from?
Where am I from? I'm from the United States Of Kiss My Ass!
"This is part of ‘The Nightmare Series’: A chance email from a Chinese “copy village” gave inspiration to this series. The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce, including three Andy Warhol paintings. The idea of Warhol’s entire artistic output distilled right down to three small 64x64 pixel thumbnails of Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and an Electric Chair became the inspiration for these doomed and dripping celebrity portraits.
