Some of whom, they were just doing business as usual, helping their communities or their states, but some of them knew they had larceny in their blood, and they even admitted it.

I felt like we had a secret, just the two of us. Like that thing where you just wanna be with one person all the time. You feel like the two of you get something no one else gets.

Richie DiMaso: You got any other questions?
Paco Hernandez: Yeah, I think the name of this operation is offensive. This whole thing is racist. What, Abscam? "Arab-scam"? It's racist!
