Barney: Hello officer.
Cop: This your cab?
Barney: Yes, sir.

I got a firsthand report tonight on what it's like on the other side, from that Hamilton babe. And brother, I'm telling you, we gotta watch our steps. Those babies are strictly no good from way down deep. They're no bunch of petty racketeers trying to muscle in on some small territory - they want to move in wholesale, take over the whole country.

Reporter: What else? Go ahead.

Franz Ebbing: It's a great pity, Mr. Donahue, that you and I should oppose each other. We have so much in common.
Alfred "Gloves" Donahue: Yeah? How's that?
Franz Ebbing: You are a man of action. You take what you want, and so do we. You have no respect for democracy - neither do we. It's clear we should be allies.
Alfred "Gloves" Donahue: It's clear you are screwy. I've been a refistered Democrat ever since I could vote. I may not be Model Citizen Number One, but I pay my taxes, wait for traffic lights, and buy 24 tickets to the Policeman's Ball. Brother, don't get me mixed up in no league that rubs out innocent bakers and...
(Shoots an alarm buzzer thar Ebbing was about to push)
