Just like in a card game you always want the ACE, in life you always want the ACE. They know you before you let them and you share the same values.
In an ideal world you would be perfect for eachother. however due to the nature of the game you only get the card your delt, which leaves you wondering how it would have played if you just got that ACE.
Jake: You weren't there, and how did you know i had a party?
Amir: Whatever.... it was still ace, dinner tonight?
Pilot #2- Just be happy happy he's on our side, he's one hell of an ace pilot!
