When old Noodles goes to Fat Moe's place he says to him: "You know I always wondered whether you ever took some of that million bucks. Now I know. You're on your ass worse than ever".
Then Noodles asks Moe how his sister's doing. Moe says he hasn't seen her in years and that she's a big star now. Noodles says "we should have known eh? You can tell the winners at the starting gate. You can tell the winners and you can tell the losers. Who would have put a penny on you. Then Moe sheepishly says "I put everything I ever had on you" and Noodles says "you lost".
So, when Old Noodles gets the million bucks in their old locker, does he share and of  it with Moe? Later Moe says "what are you sticking around for? Take the money and run"...Just curious.

The actual dialogue is something like:

How's your sister?
I ain't seen her for years - She's a big star now
We should have known, huh?
You can always tell the winners at the starting gate
You can always tell the winners, and you can tell the losers
Who would've put a penny on you?
I'd have put everything I ever had on you
Yeah, and you would've lost
Well, you're beat
Good night
Good night, Moe

It just serves to re-emphasize the high regard Moe feels about Noodles (I would have put everything I ever had on you) and the realistic way Noodles views his earlier life (you would've lost).

Unfortunately the film does not advance beyond 1968 and we do not know what happens to Noodles Moe Deborah and David after that date.  The money is payment/part payment for a job and it is up to Noodles and his conscience what he does with it.
