INT. RITZ CLAM BOX - LATE AFTERNOON (PRESENT)

The place is nearly empty. Manetta is talking to PAULVITTI, a dark, intense, intelligent man in his lateforties, and a powerful boss in his own right.

MANETTA:

Anyway, Carlo Gambino came out of

it capo de tutti capi, and that

was the last time the whole

commission tried to meet -- until

now.

VITTI:

(brooding)

I don't know. I don't like it.

What do we need a meeting for?

Let everybody worry about their

own business.

They finish eating.

MANETTA:

The '57 meeting was about how we

were going to divide up the whole

country. This meeting is about

how we're gonna survive. You got

'made' guys informing for the

Feds; bosses going to jail;

everybody's dealing drugs; people

are getting whacked without

permission. And on top of

everything, now we got the Chinese

Triads and these crazy Russians to

deal with. Everything's changing.

We need a leader. Someone with

fresh ideas. Someone like you.

It's gonna be a new century, Paul.

We gotta change with the times.

VITTI:

What are we gonna get, a fuckin'

web site?

MANETTA:

You remember what else happened in

1957, Paul?

VITTI:

Yeah, I remember.

MANETTA:

When your father died, I promised

him I'd always look out for you.

Come to the meeting.
