Added DiffLines:

* ExactWords: One of the key ways they make sure Lonnegan doesn't figure out he's been conned, along with the fake feds busting in and the real cop hustling him away. He thinks "place" means one thing, when in horseracing terms, it means something else. It's a good thing he's not familiar with horseracing, otherwise the con probably would not have worked.

** It's not quite as complex as it seems at first blush: [[spoiler: Dialogue makes it clear that he was a regular there, and she replaced the regular waitress, either paying her off [[KillAndReplace or possibly killing her]]. And every time she may have had an opportunity to take him out, there were witnesses around (although she manages to spend the night before the Big Con with him... and she doesn't tries to kill him ''right then'', but the morning after).]]
