THANK YOU.

JOE'S BRINGIN'

THAT DAME BACK IS SWELL.

LIKE HE DOES EVERYTHING ELSE.

WHAT GETS ME:

JOE COULD HAVE HAD--

NO, NOT FOR A WIFE.

THIS GIRL IS HEALTHY--

HOMESPUN STOCK, I IMAGINE.

JOE'S SMART.

HE KNOWS HIS EUGENICS.

AREN'T DRINKING.

AMBASSADOR, THERE'S AN EX-FELLOW

COUNTRYMAN OF YOURS ABOARD.

JOE KROZAC?

WE ARE NO PROUD OF HIM.

SOME PEOPLE THINK

THERE'S A LOT OF GLAMOUR

ABOUT A BIG SHO RACKETEER.

I DO NOT. I REGARD HIM

AS AN ENEMY OF THE PUBLIC,

A BLOT UPON:

YOUR CIVILIZATION,

A MAN WHO MAKES:

ORGANIZED CRIME AND MURDER A BUSINESS.

WELL, JOE,

HOW YOU BEEN?

HIYA, JOE.

WELL, CURLY.

THAT-A BOY.

SURE GLAD TO SEE YOU.

SPEAKING AS:

YOUR LAWYER, JOE,

DOES MRS. KROZAC

KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THINGS?

NOPE. I'M KEEPING

MY PRIVATE LIFE PRIVATE.

WOULD IT MAKE:

ANY DIFFERENCE TO HER IF SHE DID KNOW?

LISTEN, I WON'T HAVE

ANY TROUBLE WITH TALYA.

SHE'S HAND-PICKED

FROM MY OLD HOMETOWN.

I TOOK HER TO PARIS

AND PUT HER THROUGH EVERYTHING--

FACIAL MASSAGES,

MANICURES--

LACE PANTS,

ALL THE WORKS.

ALL SHE KNOWS:

FROM NOW ON IS RAISING A FAMILY.

ANOTHER DAFFY GUY

YOU KNOW IS GETTING MARRIED, TOO.

YEAH? WHO'S THAT?

FRANKIE KILE.

WELL, I'LL HAVE TO SEND HIM

A WEDDING PRESENT.

HE TOOK HIS PRESEN IN ADVANCE TWO WEEKS AGO.

HE AND HIS 3 BROTHERS

MOVED HIM TO BROOKLYN.

YOU LET HIM.

LISTEN, THE LAS WORDS YOU SAID TO ME BEFORE YOU SAILED--

AND YOU SPOKE 'EM

INTO THIS EAR, NOT THIS ONE--

WAS DON'T DO NOTHIN'

UNTIL I GET BACK. REMEMBER?

OK--

AND YOU SAID AS HOW

NAPOLEON APPRECIATED ONE THING IN A SOLDIER.

OBEDIENCE!

I LIKE A GUY:

THAT USES HIS HEAD,

THE GUY SMART ENOUGH

TO ACT IN AN EMERGENCY.

AND THE KILE BROTHERS

MOVING INTO BROOKLYN IS AN EMERGENCY,

BUT YOU WOULDN' KNOW IT, 'CAUSE YOUR BRAIN IS SET IN CEMENT.

YOU LET THE OTHER GUY

POKE HIS NOSE AROUND THE CORNER,

AND PRETTY SOON:

HE'S ON YOUR FRONT LAWN.

PRETTY SOON, HE'S YOU.

I LEARNED THA WHEN I WAS 16 YEARS OLD.

THAT'S WHY WHEN ANY GUY

PUT UP HIS HEAD, I CUT IT DOWN.

THAT'S WHY I GO WAREHOUSES AND MEN AND TRUCKS

AND PRIVATE TELEPHONES

FROM COAST TO COAST.

THAT'S WHY I GO YOU GUYS WORKING FOR ME.

THE KILE BROTHERS

DIDN'T FORGET YOU.

HERE'S YOUR INVITATION

TO THE WEDDING.

OK.

I'LL GIVE HIM

A PRESENT...

AND IT WON'T BE BROOKLYN.

[MACHINE GUN FIRE]

Man:

[MACHINE GUN FIRE CONTINUES]

IT'S THE

KILE BROTHERS.

ACEY'S STILL ALIVE.

WELL...

OF ME AND TALYA.

NOT A BAD PICTURE

OF THE KILE BROTHERS, EITHER.

YEAH, BUT THERE AIN' ENOUGH OF THEM IN IT.

WHERE'S MY WIFE?
