It's too f*cking much for me.

You should read that book, Joey.

Why?

Because I think you

might learn something.

What?

How to be good?

Joey, just don't say a word, OK?

Why not?

Because I don't want

you to say anything.

But we're going home, right?

I know. I'm tired already.

Where is he?

Welcome home, Frank.

Good to see you.

Nice to see you.

Thanks for everything.

To freedom.

Come on.

Bill, nice to see you.

Bill, Charlie, you know Frank.

How are you?

Good of you to come.

Judge, how are you?

Nice to see you.

Listen, I want to

introduce you to...

I'm gonna say hello

to your junior partner.

Hiya, Frank.

Good to see you.

You should

be more careful...

of the affairs

you attend, counselor.

One is known by

the company one keeps.

Ain't that right, Joey?

Pete, how are you?

Hey, Frank. Welcome home.

Hello, Frank.

Welcome back.

You know everybody here,

I think.

Pete, how's the family...

Brian, Dennis?

Better than when

you left town, Frank.

They're all working.

How about you?

Back from the dead.

Frank White. I've heard

a lot about you...

and it's all bad.

Don't believe everything that

Pete writes in the columns...

because... well...

I've been reformed.

A lot of people

will be happy to hear that.

Huh, Pete?

What can we expect from

the reformed Frank White?

I want to be mayor.

Thinks I'm kidding.

But first, I want

to talk to Arty Clay.

Why don't you relax?

We're supposed to be having

a good time here.

Tell him I got things

on my mind.

I want to

talk them over with him.

The guy's a f*cking animal.

He ain't gonna meet with you.

Maybe you can do one

of his lieutenants at best.

Tell him...

Frank White wants to talk

business with him.

Just tell him

that all I want to know...

is where and when.

You know, counselor,
