Have you ever witnessed

Frank Mantajano kill anyone?

I've heard about it,

but it's not an everyday occurrence.

- Have you witnessed him kill anyone?

- People say things. You pick up on it.

It gets around the block.

Have you ever witnessed Frank

Mantajano in any kind of illegal activity?

Have you ever witnessed him

in any kind of illegal activity?

Again, as far as I'm concerned,

the guy did right by me.

- Who hired you?

- I would assume it's Frank.

- How long have you worked for him?

- We ran together in younger days.

- How long have you worked for him?

- We dated the same girl.

We had the same friends on the streets.

That kind of stuff. Things happen.

Somebody ordered a takeout.

Good night.

Your answers have to come faster.

This is a federal case.

You've got to have your ducks in a row

if we're gonna nail Frank Mantajano. OK?

- Can we take a break? I'm hungry.

- OK.

But remember, you're gonna be

on the stand for hours at a time.

You've got to watch your body language,

your facial expressions, your posture.

To be effective, the committee

has to like you. Get it?

I got it.

- Got any Szechwan chicken over there?

- Could you get him some chicken?

Mr Paine, does the Attorney General's

office have any final remarks?

May I remind the committee that Frank

Mantajano is an execrable criminal,

moving Cuban organized crime

into America.

I object to that characterization

of my client.

The Attorney General's office is making

accusations, disguising them as truth.

The fact is, my client

has never been convicted of any crime.

- But he will be, Mr Foster.

- That's enough, gentlemen.

This committee will stand in recess

until 10am Monday,

at which time I hope that the Attorney

General's office will have evidence

to back up their accusations.

- I'll produce it all right.

- Good. We're adjourned.

Our witness is dead.

My witness is dead?

- Mantajano's people got to him.

- He was in a safe house. How?

Some Cuban delivered him

a carton of Chinese food full of C-4.

I just told the Committee on Organized

Crime and 60 million TV viewers

that I would produce a witness

in 72 hours.

I understand,

but what are we going to do about it?

"We"? As a federal marshal,

you are directly responsible

for the custody and protection

of all witnesses.

So the problem is,

you got my witness killed.

You do something about it

by Monday morning

or start thinking about

an early retirement.

Sweet little kitty.

Got them virgin hands.

Cute little kitty cat like you

ain't supposed to be shovellin' ditches.

This here is man's work.

Hey, b*tch, are you listenin' to me?

You know, I'm lookin' for a little p*ssy

like you to keep me warm at night.

Now that's using your head. Come on!

Don't you think he's had enough, convict?

You been here one day.

You wanna fight everybody?

- I ain't supposed to be here.

- Ain't nobody supposed to be here.

Break it up!

Get your big ass out of the way.

- Causin' problems already, Piper?

- I had nothin' to do with it.

- It's true.

- Shut up, Dodge.

- Wait a minute.

- I said shut the f*** up!

You guys need an attitude adjustment.

I got just the thing for you.

All right, Kevin.

Kinda like a wedding ring.

I now pronounce you

convict... and convict.

Now get the f*** on the bus.

You move when I say you move.


Come on.

- Should we break it up now?

- No.

Just keep a lookout

and watch for my signal.

Gimme the keys to the bus.

- What's goin' on?

- How should I know?

Radio for help.

- Let's go.

- I'm not goin' anywhere.

You move when I say you move!
