“…A full house. Dan already folded the 6 you needed and I have the other one. You don’t have a house of any sort. You don’t have a pup tent. You’ve got trip-7s and I have a straight. I want you to trust me right now. I want you to say to yourself, ‘Yeah, I’ve dated a string of jerks in my life. They were stupid, they were mean to me, but maybe this one’s different. Maybe I should take a chance and not adopt the break-up-with-him-before-he-breaks-my-heart strategy.’ I want you to remember that when I started liking you, I didn’t stop liking tennis. And I want you to know that I don’t think there’s a woman in the world that you need to be threatened by, no matter how glamorous you think she is. But mostly, I want you to trust me, just once, when I tell you that you have three 7s… and I have a straight.” –Jeremy Goodwin (Joshua Malina) on Sports Night
