->''"And along with making us legit comes cash. '''Tons''' of it. I mean, what do you think we're doing out here in the middle of the desert? It's all this money. This is the end result of all the bright lights, and the comp trips, and all the champagne, and free hotel suites, and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get '''your money.'' That's the truth about Las Vegas: we're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance."''

->At three o'clock in the morning, when you wander through the endless sea of flashing lights and green velvet blackjack tables, surrounded by giant Mardi Gras floats, tinsel-clad maidens and Egyptian sky-arks, it is easy to wonder if you might be dreaming. From the moment you disembark from the plane, the ringing of the slot machines follows you like a dog nipping at your heels. Once you enter The Strip, it's easy to move from one fantasyland to another via convenient monorail trains and omnipresent taxis. You can walk through the arms of the Sphinx into a glittering black pyramid whose point shines a pillar of light into the sky, gawk at the world's largest gold nuggets, or gaze into a Fremont sky replaced with a sea of electric color.
->Add to this the hundreds of Elvis impersonators, dozens of Marilyn Monroe clones and the Blue Men (as seen in national Intel commercials). Throw in a dab of $1.99 buffets, martinis as large as your head and truly unspeakable carpeting. Mix the waitresses who shame your most drunken antics with the smiling temptresses who hand out free drinks like they're dime store candies. Put a roller coast on the roof of the Space Needle and build a pyramid of black glass. Sail on the waterways of Venice in the afternoon, tromp through New York in the evening and watch the cannons of a pirate fleet at night. Vegas has a thousand tricks up her sleeve, all designed to make you forget the real world long enough to risk it all on a few dice throws.
