Ando Masahashi: Did you see? I won!

Hiro Nakamura: Okay. Let's leave now.

Ando Masahashi: Thank you. Now? Are you kidding? I'm on a roll!

Hiro Nakamura: No You're not.

Ando Masahashi: But I just won. Big.

Hiro Nakamura: I did it. I stopped time. Moved the ball. You won because of me. It's horrible. I'm a terrible person. But it was our last dollar.
