Rounders Quote! Now With Sound!
Mike McDermott: All right, I'll call the two grand. I'll gamble. Don't splash the pot.

But Seriously, Don't Splash the Pot
Splashing the pot is a breach of etiquette at the poker table. If it is unintentional, it is just a minor faux pas, but if it is done with hostile intent, it can really cause a player to become persona non grata. A messy pot is difficult for the players to count and splashing the pot creates delays in the game as the dealer restacks the chips. Plus, an errant chip may roll over to someone else's seat, potentially causing confusion if not noticed immediately.
Calm Down, Dude
Not exactly splashing the pot, but we thought it was kind of funny.
