Quotes from this episode:
“And I decide not to bet at all unless I have a sure thing because the antes (at least the first ones) are not so big as to where they’ll knock you out.” – Drew, on poker
“I feel very rich driving an old car. I feel like I have no car payments. If something breaks it’s not a problem. We can get it fixed. If the whole car dies and I need to get a new car, it’s not the end of the world.” – Dan
“So that’s a business idea for somebody. Make doors with pre-hinge templates; they’ll fly off the shelves!” – Drew
“We’re trying to simplify budgeting so you can budget a little less and spend a little more time living life.” – Dan
