Episode Quotes
Latito: (to Marco) A man likes to come around with good news like Santa Claus.

Marco: It shoulda gone right, Louie.
Latito: So who gets the blame--the porter who cleans up or the owner of the mess?

Latito: (to Marco) One mistake they turn their head. The next mistake it's your head.

Marco: (to Marconi) One relative I got and he's stupid.

Rico: Not a bad haul last night.
Ness: Not good enough. I wish we'd gotten the big boy.
