Wicked Wisdom

Poker night at the Smith house, November 2004 . . .

Jada Pinkett Smith: I see that 25 and raise 500.

Abe Vigoda: Whoa, that's too rich for me!

Jackie Chan: Yeah, me too. I'm out.

Jada Pinkett Smith: What about you, baby?

Will Smith: I wanna keep going with this hand, but I'm all outta cash, honey.

Jada Pinkett Smith: Tell you what, we can keep going, but here's the deal -- you lose, and you can't make any more sequels to Bad Boys.

Will Smith: Oh, it's like that, huh? Okay, but if I win, here's what you gotta do. Ha-ha, check this out -- you gotta form a heavy metal band, a real heavy metal band, and be the singer, and go do that Ozzfest next summer, and then after that make a record and go out on a national tour, just like I used to do.

Jada Pinkett Smith: Will, I know I'm an actor, but that's ridiculous! But okay, I'll take that bet, 'cause look what I got -- full house, kings over queens. Beat that.

Will Smith: Straight flush, baby! Awww yeeeahhh! Get ready to growl, Miss Metal! Hahahahaha!

Abe Vigoda: Oh snap!
