Detective Belsik: [walks into the Lorenzos'] I'm Detective Belsik. [points to Vella] This is my partner Detective Vella. [to Calogero] Hello, son. [to Mrs. Anello] How ya doin', ma'am? [turns to Lorenzo] We'd like to ask your son a few question.

Lorenzo: About what?

Detective Belsik: There was a shooting in front of the building a little while ago and we believe your son was there.

Lorenzo: Really? Well, he don't know nothin' about that.

Detective Belsik: Well, we feel he DOES. There were people who saw him.

Lorenzo: Well, they're WRONG. He don't know nothin'.

Detective Belsik: Listen, Mr. Anello, we could do things the nice way or we could do things the hard way. All right? We could go down to headquarters...

Lorenzo: I don't care what way you do it! He don't know nothin'!

Calogero 'C' Anello: Daddy, I know everything.

Lorenzo: Kids, ya know, sometimes they make believe they see things.

Detective Vella: We didn't pick your name out of a hat. We know your son was down there. So, come on, let's go.

Detective Belsik: [to Calogero] Son, listen. Here's what I'd like you to do for us. I'd like you to take a walk downstairs with us. And your father. We have some people down there. All I want you to do is pick out the person you saw with the gun in his hand. That's it. Do you think you could do that for us?

Calogero 'C' Anello: [thinks about it, looks at his father] Yeah.”
