Amy Rothstein: I don't want to go to Europe. I want to go see The Elephant Man.
Lester Diamond: We're not gonna go see any fuckin' elephants, okay?

Don Ward: You might regret this, Mr. Rothstein.
Ace Rothstein: I'll regret it even more if I keep you on.
Don Ward: This is not the way to treat people.
Ace Rothstein: Listen, if you didn't know you're bein' scammed, you're too fuckin' dumb to keep this job. If you did know, you were in on it. Either way, you're out. Get out! Go on.

Ace Rothstein: [to Sherbert] I don't give a shit who he's connected to. Tell him to take his fuckin' feet off the table. What's he think this is, a goddamn sawdust joint?
Billy Sherbert: [to cowboy] Sir, would you mind taking your feet off the table and put your shoes on, please?
Cowboy: Yeah, I would mind. I'm havin' a bad night.
Billy Sherbert: Fuckin' asshole won't budge.

Ace Rothstein: The guy is history as far as I'm concerned. History.

Lester Diamond: He's sittin' by the phone...
Ginger: What do you think we're gonna do? He's probably got guys outside the fuckin' house!

Vinny Forlano: He won't talk. Stone is a good kid. Stand-up guy, just like his old man. That's the way I see it.
Vincent Borelli: I agree. He's solid. A fuckin' Marine.
Americo Capelli: He's okay. He always was. Remo, what do you think?
Remo Gaggi: Look... why take a chance? At least, that's the way I feel about it.
