… no you’re not…

 Does it bother you? What he said?
  (after a pause)
 Yeah. It bothers me a lot.
 ‘Cause, you see, twice, Sarah — once at Ames
 with Minnesota Fats and then again at
 Arthur’s …
  (sits up)
 … in that cheap, crummy poolroom … Now,
 why’d I do it, Sarah? Why’d I do it? I coulda
 beat that guy, I coulda beat him cold. He
 never woulda known. But I just had to show ‘em,
 I just had to show those creeps and those punks
 what the game is like when it’s great, when
 it’s really great. You know, like anything can
 be great — anything can be great … I don’t
 care, bricklaying can be great. If a guy
 knows. If he knows what he’s doing and why, and
 if he can make it come off. I mean, when I’m
 goin’ — when I’m really goin’ — I feel
 … like a jockey must feel. He’s sittin’
 on his horse, he’s got all that speed and that
 power underneath him, he’s comin’ into the
 stretch, the pressure’s on him — and he
 knows — just feels — when to let it go, and
 how much. ‘Cause he’s got everything workin’
 for him — timing, touch. It’s a great feeling,
 boy, it’s a real great feeling when you’re
 right, and you know you’re right. It’s like all
 of a sudden I got oil in my arm. Pool cue’s
 part of me. You know, it’s a — pool cue’s got
 nerves in it. It’s a piece of wood — it’s got
 nerves in it. You feel the roll of those balls.
 You don’t have to look. You just know. Ya make
 shots that nobody’s ever made before. And you
 play that game the way nobody’s ever played it
 You’re not a loser, Eddie. You’re a winner.
 Some men never get to feel that way about
 anything. I love you, Eddie.
