Lyrics from "A Thousand Kisses Deep" by Leonard Cohen fits Bob to the T:
The ponies run, the girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while, and then it's done
Your little winning streak
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat

I'm back on boogie street
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the masterpiece
And maybe I had miles to drive
And promises to keep
You ditch it all to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep
Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me

-Oh, this was a sentimental journey.
At our age, Roger, we have behind us a growing past... and face a diminishing future.
Get my... money back by Monday... what I do to both your faces will definitely be cubist. Call it the new aesthetic.
Paulo, love means never having to say you're sorry.
You look good for a man of your age.
- What age is that?
You know, Stone Age? Kinky, as well.
Why are the French so god-awfully bad at rock 'n' roll?
- What do you mean?
I mean, look at it. We give you Elvis Presley, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan. And you give us Johnny Hallyday.
You try a new scam, Bob, it won't be me. The whole system will flatten you.
-I've retired. I'm a junkie gambler now. A big loser. That's all.
Name the best thief that ever lived.
No. Pablo Picasso. The cat stole from everybody: Rubens, Delacroix, Czanne, Van Gogh, Matisse. Never got caught.
