"The Gambler" (Music)

"Last thing I need is more time in the tub. No sale, Miss Mars. Know when to fold 'em."

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

When Ms. Hauser tells Veronica that efforts to foist Veronica's babysitting services upon her are in vain, she uses this poker expression. Now, whilst it is perfectly plausible that Ms. Hauser is a closet card shark, given the music treasure trove the episode proves to be, it's more likely that Ms. Hauser picked it up from the song — a huge country hit of the late 1970s by Kenny Rogers — which popularized potted poker prudence.
