Captain: (to Mike Brannon) Get outta here before I lock you up.
Lamberto:(to the Brannons) I don't know who you guys are but when I get through they're gonna have to mail you in.
Captain: You don't bust a guy's face just to make an arrest.
Mike: Especially if he happens to be one of Tony Lamberto's punks.
Mike: (to the captain): You fat politician cop.
Mike: (to his brothers) Nobody pushed us around because we stuck together so now we grow up and everyboy's pushing us around.
Mike: (to his brothers) So just once we're gonna put our hand in and when we take it out it's gonna be worth 150 grand.
This episode plays out like a Greek tragedy for its two lead protagonists: Mike Brannon and Tony Lamberto. Brannon lets his blind hatred for Lamberto destroy his soul and lead the rest of his family down the path to destruction. Lamberto discovers to his chagrin that the only thing worse than an enemy is having a friend in the Mob.
