Quotes / Viva Las Vegas!

Go To

I've got my car, and my ride, and my wheels
(when I go to Vegas) That's right
I've got my drugs, and my stuff, and my pills
(when I go to Vegas) Alright
Calvin Harris, "Vegas"

"No, this is not a good town for psychedelic drugs. Reality itself is too twisted.

"The first thing he noticed was that Las Vegas seemed to have invented a new school of functional architecture, 'The Gilded Mousetrap School' he thought it might be called, whose main purpose was to channel the customer-mouse into the central gambling trap whether he wanted the cheese or not.”

"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."
Ace, Casino

"At first, when you show up in Vegas and you're living in the Riviera and you're on the strip and you're seeing all these lights, three days of it is just amazing. The fourth day, you're seeing 'CIRCUS CIRCUS CIRCUS CIRCUS CIRCUS CIRCUS'. You wanna shoot somebody."
Chainsaw, The Story of Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling

"Atlantic City is great — it’s like Vegas, but with less of a chance you’ll run into a Kardashian."

"I don't want to spoil the ending of this movie, but there's no strategy to slot machines. They're like relationships — you throw your hopes and dreams into them until one of you is out of money and the other one is empty inside."

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.
