FBI Technician: [sitting on the floor of a motel room, reserved for the FBI] What's ‘Forget about it’?

Donnie Brasco: Forget about it’ is, like, if you agree with someone, you know, like ‘Raquel Welch is one great piece of ass. Forget about it!’ But then, if you disagree, like ‘A Lincoln is better than a Cadillac? Forget about it!’ You know? But then, it's also like if something's the greatest thing in the world, like, ‘Minghia! Those peppers! Forget about it!’ But it's also like saying ‘Go to hell!’ too. Like, you know, like ‘Hey Paulie, you got a one-inch pecker?’ and Paulie says ‘Forget about it!’ Sometimes it just means ‘Forget about it.’”
