Tony is a prick.

All I was trying to do was apologize.

That's it.

Well, now you have to

go down there and apologize.

In person.

And to his daughter.

In person.

Tony's protected. Nick.

He makes us a lot of money.

You know that he's

holding out on you.

He's running all this shit on the

side you don't even know about.

I bet he never even...

Hey, Mickey Mouse.

Wait outside.

You really want to associate

with people like that?

He came out of

his mother's ass.

I never would have survived them three

years up in Shirley without George.

Get your ass

over to his place.

And watch your

fucking mouth with me.

If you want in, you better listen

more than you don't listen.

And don't take everything

so fucking personally.

You got a lot of heart, Nick.

Don't let it go to your head.

Whatever I got

to do, I'm ready.

You know, Ginsberg,

the lawyer that just left...

- You know...

- Sure. Good guy.

Listen, Nick.

With the old timers dying,

one by one,

and the Feds and the rats and the chinks

and the fucking Albanians up my ass,

I got no choice

but to go legit

or be the last man standing.

We're like an island. Capisce?

There's not many of us left.

Whatever you want

me to do, I'm ready.

I never was one of those guys

who just let anybody in

who'd come through the door.

But I paid the price. I know.

I see something in you.

The day you see it yourself is the day

things will go right with this family.

You're a good boy, Nick.

Your time's coming.

And bring

the girl some flowers.


What's up, Nicky?

How are you, brother?

What's up, Georgie?

Vito, when are you gonna

do something about that haircut?

The pompadour died with Elvis.

F*ck you.

What's up, Eric, you dumb ass?

You know I got to go deal

with your shit right now?

What shit?
