Referrring to Okamura's (sp?) slow play Earl said "It takes him 3 hours to watch 60 minutes" /ccboard/images/icons/laugh.gif
One of my favorites doesn't come from a pro Pool player, but from a pro basketball player. It's in my profile, too.
"We've got heart. We play with that first. We'll play with talent second." - Allen Iverson
Upon being behind in a match with Steve Mizerak in Taiwan, Steve takes a break while Earl exclaims, "I can't believe I'm getting beat by a 400 pound pig!"
I think that would look good in her Bio on WPBA.com. Or, perhaps, a fan could hold up a sign with that text at the next WPBA event! Either way, it has the potential to become a modern day classic!

Danny DiLiberto commenting about a highly touted young player who just received a good whooping, "He may know a million shots, but none of them came up this match."
Overheard at Cardiff
Earl Strickland: I once had a guy break seven balls against me!
Thomas Overbeck: Who was it, David Copperfield?
Earl Strickland (again)
That Steve Davis don't give me no respect. Why, he treats me like I was Osama Bin Laden

Not exactly real life but it still gives me the goosebumps when I hear it:
'Fast Eddie, let's play some pool'
Jackie Gleason as Minnesota Fats to Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson in The Hustler

Short stop: "I gotta have the breaks and the wild six."

Short stop: "I ain't take'n your check"

I can't remember if it was the color of money or the hustler... But the Black guy with the funny eyes says
"Let me ask you a question"
"Do you think I need to loose some weight?"
Not a direct quote, but it was something like that...

The Color of Money
The guy you're talking about is actor Forrest Whitaker. Plus he's a little on the heavy side so it was kind of like a double entendre.

Gotta give credit when credit is due,Tom /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif
"you want to bet something?"
"Maybe, but why don't you watch me shoot a few racks first and if you still want to play, then you're too good for me."
