Pull up easy. The

temperature in Newark is 54.

In Morristown it's 57,

and in Asbury Park..

Saint Dominic's:

Saint Michael's:

What do you have on Saint Bartholomew?

Fifty-eight. 5,800?

George, what about Loyola?

All right, up against the wall!

What is this? What's going on?

My dear friends, you have

come together in this church..

that the Lord may seal

and strengthen your love..

in the presence of the church's

minister and this community.

Christ abundantly blesses you.

Oh, my God! Get that money!

What are you doing? Do you

know whose parish this is?

F*** you and the horse you rode in on.

May daily problems never

cause you anxiety..

or the desire for earthly

possessions dominate your lives.

May you find happiness and

satisfaction in your work.

Just kiss that pipe, boys.

Shut up!

You have declared your

consent before the church.

May the Lord strengthen your consent

and fill you with His blessings.

What God has joined man must not divide.

Leave the change alone!

Don't touch it. Beautiful.

May Almighty God bless you. The

Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

We've been hit!

Son of a b*tch!

In the days I went a-courtin.

I was never tired of resortin..

To the ale house or the playhouse

And many's the house besides.

As sure as me name is Barney

I'll be off to "Californy".

Instead of diggin praddies

I'll be diggin lumps of coal..

Don't get us glommed over. No way.

We've already got a driver in the car.

Keep it up.

Don't press me, pal.

Couldn't you have stopped

him without doing that?

Shut your mouth before you get it.

What do you mean? Just what

I'm tellin' ya, hard on.

If you'd shoot a priest for

$67,000, how much is my life worth?


You're a piece of sh*t.

You bastard! What are you doing?

Look out!

He's gone! He's gone!

We better leave 'em

till the cops get here.


Call another ambulance.

There's one in back. There's

a guy in the car here.

Hurt awful bad.

Everybody stay out of the way

and let these guys through.

Hey, Mickey, over here!

What's the latest on

your brother, Mr. Ricci?

He's gonna be all right.

That's fine. Thank God.

One of those pigs walked

away from that accident.

His name is Jackie Scanlon.

He's a punk from Queens

with the Donnelly mob.

Real piece of sh*t.

Mr. Ricci, everybody

wants to help you on this.

The guy can't make a move.

He can't go nowheres.

Could be on his way to the moon by now.

We'll get the best, but it's gonna

have to come from the outside..

and it's gonna cost.

He robbed my church.

Shot my brother.

I don't care where he is or

what it costs. I want his ass.

You got a problem. Tell me about it.

You're on the hit parade. What?

That priest you whacked

was Carlo Ricci's brother.

Forget the heat. Ricci

himself is out looking for you.

I never carry a pistol. Want

to tell him that in person?

Got any money?

Two thousand.

How about a passport? What for?

For 2,000 I'll get you a passport.

You mean out of the country? Uh-huh.

Where? A good place to stay low.


It's a place nobody wants to look in.

It's covered, okay?

Where am I going? Get

a train in Baltimore.

Go to pier 47.

At customs, ask for Nat Glick.

Don't mention my name.

As of right now, I don't know

you and I don't want to know you.

I owed you a favor. This is it.

You gonna tell me where I'm going?

I swear to Christ, I don't know.

Arriba!! Fuerza atras!

Vamos!! Arriba!! Arriba!

Arriba!! Fuerza atras!

Vamos!! Eso es!

Arriba! Eso..





Transito? Pase.

Transito. Pase. Pasaporte.

Pase. Pasaporte. Pase.
