BLACK PUSHER's brow furrows, looks up just a little.

BLACK PUSHER:

I don't...

DOYLE:

Ever pick your feet in Poughkeepsie?

BLACK PUSHER:

What?

DOYLE:

Did you ever pick your feet in

Poughkeepsie?

BLACK PUSHER:

I don't know what you're talkin'

about.

DOYLE:

Were you ever in Poughkeepsie?

BLACK PUSHER:

No... yeah...

DOYLE:

Did you ever sit on the edge of the

bed, take off your socks and stick

your fingers between your toes?

BLACK PUSHER:

Man, I'm clean.

DOYLE:

You made three sales to your

roaches back there. We had to

chase you through all this shit and

you tell me you're clean?

5.

RUSSO:

Who stuck up the laundromat?

DOYLE:

How about that time you were

picking your feet in Poughkeepsie?

The BLACK PUSHER'S eyes go to RUSSO in panic, looking for

relief from the pressure of the inquisition.

RUSSO:

(in pain)

You better give me the guy who got

the old Jew or you better give me

something or you're just a memory

in this town.

BLACK PUSHER:

That's a lot o' shit. I didn't do

nothin'.
