Peter: The good and the bad of Al Fusary are a matter of record. As far as I'm concerned, it was mostly bad. But anyway you look at it, he was unique.The last of a rare breed who crawled out of a bathtub of bootleg gin, grabbed a submachine gun, and made the 20s roar. By the truest measure of the underworld, he was a real big shot. And unlike his contemporaries who ended up in a sack or a garage floor on Valentine's Day, he beat the odds and lasted until he was a little bit over 60. And he was a big shot over the way. For thirty years the undisputed vice lord of his own personal empire. He was unique... and he was dead.
Jacoby: What are you doing here?
Peter: I get around. Picnics, fish fries, funerals.
Peter: Nice guy, Emmett.
Peter: You could do worse.
Edie: I always do.
Peter: Tell Fallon Peter Gunn wants to see him.
Gunman: Peter? Go pick a peck of peppers.
Gunn: Sometimes you get lucky. You take a chance on a bluff and it pays off. Most of the time when you get mixed up with men like Fallon, the wrong people get killed. This time was no exception.
Edie (Lola Albright) sings "Day In and Day Out". Written by Johnny Mercer and sung originally by Billie Holiday.
