Hooker: Listen, Gondorff! Am I gonna learn the big con or not?
Henry: What's your hurry?
Hooker: I want to play for Lonnegan.
Henry: You know anything about the guy?
Hooker: Yeah! He croaked Luther! Anything else I gotta know? [after he calms down] All right. He runs a numbers racket on the south side. He owns a packing house. A few banks.
Henry: Yeah, and half the politicians in New York and Chicago. Not a fix in this world is gonna cool him out if he blows on you.
Hooker: I'll get him anyway.
Henry: Why?
Hooker: 'Cause I don't know enough about killin' to kill him.
Henry: You can't do it alone, you know. It takes a mob of guys like you and enough money to make them look good.
Hooker: I know plenty of guys.
Henry: It's not like playing winos in the street. You can't outrun Lonnegan.
Hooker: I never played for no winos.
Henry: You gotta keep his con even after you take his money. He can't know you took him.
Hooker: You're scared of him.
Henry: Right down to my socks, buster! You're talkin' about a guy who'd kill a grifter over a chunk of money that wouldn't support him for two days!
