Pappas: [of Johnny, after the last robbery] Don’t ride him in with the black and whites like some punk; let me ride him in.

Ben Harp: Yeah, sure, Angelo, why not? That is why I put you two screwups to begin with. You deserve each other, don’t you? You’re just as bad as he is, though you’re a little fatter, a little slower, and a little more pathetic. For Christ’s sake, it’s like the blind leading the blind with you.

Pappas: Harp, I want to tell you something. I was in this bureau when you were still popping zits on your funny face and jerking off with the lingerie section of the Sears catalog.

Ben Harp: Is that right, Pappas?

Pappas: Yes, that’s right ‘Harp’, and out of all these years, I have learned something that you still haven’t got.

Ben Harp: Yeah? Why don’t you astonish me, shitface?

Pappas: [punches Harp in the face] Respect for my elders.”
