- Where do you want this, ma?

- Here on the counter.

Vinny, what happened

to your face?

- Aw, it's nothin', you

should see the other guy.

- Why you do the fighting?

Why you no play the

golf that you like?

- That's a rich guy's sport, ma.

Once I turn pro, I'll be able

to play golf all the time.

And buy you and pop

anything you want.

- Vinny, I already

got everything I want.

- I know, I know.

- Make sure you got

enough for us next week.

- Sure, sure, no

problem, gentlemen.

I sell you all the sugar,

all the yeast you need.

- More guys from the genna mob?

- Don't worry about them.

They just need ingredients

to make the booze.

- So maybe you

shouldn't be sellin'

your homemade wine right now.

You don't want them thinkin'

that you're their competition.

- Competition?

It's no competition.

Nobody make better

wine than I do.

Plus, hey, we need the money.

- Yeah, I know, pop.

- Hey, this crazy prohibition

these politicians make,

it's an opportunity

for everybody.

And why we come to America?

- Opportunity.

I know, I know, I know.

All right, I gotta

go for a run, okay.

I gotta be in tip-top

shape for tomorrow.

- Come on, O'Malley!

My grandma hits

harder than that.

He's done.

- Jesus, I thought we were

supposed to be sparring in here.

- Sorry sergeant,

i got carried away.

- Yeah, take it easy, Jack!

O'Malley's jaw swells

up, he won't be able

to eat any donuts for a week.

- Yeah, f*ck you, landa.

- He's got a good left hand.

Lookin' good, Jack.

Lookin' real good.

- Thank you.

- You ready for tomorrow night?

- Are you kiddin',

that's my big debut.

- Just wish it was

a sanctioned event.

Can't have 'em in Chicago

anymore like they do back east.

- Nah, that's okay.

A charity event for veterans,

what could be better?

You're gonna be there, right?

- Wouldn't miss it.

- Swell.

Well look, I gotta

get in the shower.

I gotta go to the

store and see my pop.

Sorry again, sergeant.

- Yeah, yeah.

He's hits like a mule

considering how young he is.

- Oh, is that your excuse, Bob?

Even your hookers don't

go down that fast.

- Yeah, f*ck you.

- And in the other corner,

fighting for the Irish,

making his big debut,

battling Jack mcgurn!

- Here's our boy, Jackie!

Come on, Jack!

- Well, well, look who's here.


- A little far from the

south side, isn't he?

- Fight fans go where

the fights are, huh?

Hey, you don't think he's

here to gamble, do you?

- Oh, a fine upstanding

citizen like him?

No, he's taking

another poor orphan boy

to his first sporting event.

- I feel

bad I misjudged him.

- Uh, oh!

- Frankie!

- Grazie, mama.

The bread's a little tough.

- Papa told me you knocked

the guy's block off.

- Yep.

It even bounced around

the canvas a few times.

- Vinny!

- What, I'm only kidding!

It's a figure of speech.

- Hey, why don't you tell

your mama what happened next?

- What?

- Well, there were some

promoters at the fight tonight.

They said after a

few more tune-ups,

they're gonna put me on the

pro fight card out in Aurora.

- That's my boy!

Here's to the next welterweight

champion of the world!

- Salud!

- Salud.

- Salud.

- Salud.

No, no.

- You think we're stupid?

We know what you're doin'.

- What?

- Nobody sells liquor

on the West Side

except the genna family!

- This is the only

warning you're gonna get.

- What time you got?

- It's a little before ten.

You want me to take over?

- Nah, I don't mind driving.

You get used to these

Canadian runs after a while.

- I gotta say, torrio's fuckin'

right, it's worth the drive.
