View Quote (After killing Morrie) I thought he'd never shut the **** up!
View Quote FBI Agent: If it's gonna make him a happy witness, a better witness, I'd like you to be with him. They're not gonna be able to get to him. The only way they can get to him is by getting to you. Or getting to your kids. Karen, I've listened to those wiretaps. And I've heard you on the telephone. You're talkin' about cocaine. Conversation after conversation you're talking to Henry on the phone. You're facing a lengthy prison sentence.
View Quote FBI Agent: We're basically your only salvation. We're gonna save your life, we're gonna save his life. I'm gonna keep you out of jail.

Henry: It's just, you know. You're just funny, it's funny, the way you tell the story and everything.
Tommy: [it becomes quiet] Funny how? What's funny about it?

View Quote Paulie: [to Henry] You know anything about this ****ing restaurant business?
Sonny: He knows everything about it. I mean he's in the joint 24 hours a day. I mean another ****ing few minutes he could be a stool that's how often he's in there.
View Quote Paulie: I don't want any more of that shit.
Henry: What shit? What are you talking about?
Paulie: Just stay away from the garbage, you know what I mean.
Henry: Look, Paulie?
Paulie: I'm not talking about what you did inside, you did what you had to do. I'm talking about now, from now, here and now.
Henry: Paulie, why would I want to get into that?
Paulie: Don't make a jerk out of me, just don't do it. Just don't do it. Now I want to talk to you about Jimmy, you have to watch out for him. He's a good earner but he's wild, takes too many chances.
Henry: Yeah I know that, I know Jimmy, you think I would take chances like Jimmy?
Paulie: And Tommy he's a good kid too. But he's crazy, he's a cowboy, he's got too much to prove. You gotta watch out for kids like this.
Henry: Yeah I know what they are, I only use them for certain things, believe me you don't have to worry.
Paulie: Listen, I ain't gonna get ****ed like Gribbs, understand. Gribbs is 70 years old and the ****in guy's gonna die in prison, I don't need that. So I'm warning everybody, everybody. It could be my son, it could be anybody. Gribbs got 20 years just for saying hello to some **** who was sneaking behind his back selling junk, I don't need that, ain't gonna happen to me, you understand?
Henry: Uh huh.
Paulie: You know that you're only out early because I got you a job. I don't need this heat, understand that.
Henry: Uh huh.
Paulie: And you see anybody ****ing around with this shit you're going to tell me, right?
Henry: Yeah.
Paulie: [slaps him] That means anybody!
Henry: Alright.
Paulie: Yeah?
Henry: Yeah, of course.

[The detectives bring in the utensils Henry used to make coke]
Police Detective: What, were you guys grocery shopping? What, are we going to make a cake? Gonna make a ****ing cake? Got anything good in there or what?
[A detective tastes the residue in a pan]
Police Detective: Is it good?
[Detective smiles and nods]
Police Detective: Ha ha ha ha. Bye bye, dickhead. Ha ha ha. See you in Attica, dick.
View Quote Stacks: What time is it?
Tommy: It's eleven thirty, we're supposed to be there by nine.
Stacks: Be ready in a minute.
Tommy: Yeah, you were always ****in' late, you'd be late for your own ****in' funeral. (Shoots Stacks in the head)
View Quote Tommy: ****in' Drop-along Cassidy.
Spider: Why don't you go **** yourself, Tommy?
[everyone laughs]
Jimmy: Whoa! I don't believe what I'm hearing. Check out the balls on this kid. Hey Spider, this is for you. [tosses money on the table] That's the way. You don't take no shit from nobody. Tommy, you gonna let him get away with that? What's the matter with you? What's the world comin' to?
[Tommy pulls out a gun and shoots Spider]
