"You want to make $14? The hard way?" -- Rodney Dangerfield to Ted Knight's wife, in Caddyshack (1980)

In Craps making a hard way bet means going for the total of the two dice on doubles. Say you wanted to go for a hard six, the only way to do it is with two threes. It is called the hard way because it is not easy to hit. There are only four hard way combinations: hard 4 (2x2), hard 6 (3x3), hard 8 (4x4), and hard 10 (5x5).
