QUOTES

„My mother, God rest her soul, had a saying. Beware of mad men and debts. They’ll outrunt each other to get you in the grave. If I was smarter I would’ve listened to her.”

“-What’s that, boy, Shorty?
-My bat, Toni.
-What am I supposed to do with it?
-Well…
-What? Hit them on the head with the bat? Kill them? We don’t kill people, Shorty, for fuck’s sake. We beat ’em up a little bit, okay? Scare them a little, so they try shit in the future.”
