at Fat Sam's...

Grand Slam...


There's a politician...

sitting by the kitchen,

said he caught his fingers...

in the one he was wishin'.

Once you get here,

feel the cheer...

Hey, Mac, special on the rocks.

Each night astounds you...

rumors are buzzin',

stories by the dozen...

look around you, cousin,

at the news we're making here.

Anybody who is anybody will

soon walk through the door...

at Fat Sam's Grand Slam...


You know something?

You look like you put your

face on backwards this morning.

- You got too much mouth.

- I'll tell my dentist.

- Watch where you're going.

- Sorry. It's your fault.

What's that, a

hockey stick?

No, a baseball bat.

You're a baseball player?

No, a dancer. My mother

made me pack it.

- You a sports nut?

- It's for protection.

- You take it everywhere?

- No, I came about a job.

- You get it?

- They said come back tomorrow.

- What's your name?

- Brown.

Sounds like a loaf of bread.

Blousey Brown.

Blousey Brown?

A stale loaf of bread.

Very funny. Terrific.

Pleased to meet you.

I'm Bugsy Malone.

Don't call us.

We'll call you.

It's okay, everybody.

Just a little excitement.

Razzmatazz, music. I wanna see

everyone enjoying themselves.

Can't say Fat Sam's place ain't

the liveliest joint in town.

Knuckles, this means trouble.

- You know what to do?

- Sure, boss.

Step on it, Jackson.

What is this?


Get me out of here.

- Located the gun yet?

- I can't answer that.

- Not at liberty to say?

- No. I don't know the answer.

Where do the guns come from?

I'm not at liberty to say.

Ask Captain Smolsky.

O'Dreary, break up the crowd.

- Have you found the gun?

- No comment.

- And the source of the guns?

- No comment.

Is it true that only

one gang uses the gun?
