Episode Quotes
Simon: For the pampered rich who come to Motne Carlo, the urge is not only to get richer but to test their nerve against that remorseless adversary, luck. Now, in this room, the kings of chemin de fer meet head on. Like ex-king Falouda of Fadir. Millions of francs can change hands in a single night.
