  • Quotes

    • Joey: Actually, now that I think about it, no wonder I'm depressed. It was the day I lost my dream too.
      Psychiatrist: Oh?
      Joey: I always wanted to be a short-order cook.
      Psychiatrist: So why didn't you ask her for a job?
      Joey: (surprised) I never thought of that!

    • Joey: The one guy who could've had his dream and made it out of the neighborhood. Whitey. He was so fast he could've made the Olympics or something like that, but the idiot never went out to track.

    • Joey: (narrating) Now for some people, losing a dream can make you dangerous 'cause they don't think long term. They just want what they want, when they want it.

    • Tommy: When the Pope calls me, I'll clean his toilet.

    • (Jimmy opens the cashier to Nicky's bar and starts taking out money)
      Mia: You do know that Nicky Cottero owns this bar, right? Well, the last guy that didn't pay his bar tab, got a meat hook up his ass. What do you thinks gonna happen to you if you rob the place? (to Whitey) What's the matter with this guy?
      Whitey: I can't talk to him either.

    • Dokey: Jack, you talk to me like I'm some street punk again and I'm gonna cut your tongue out.

    • Joey: (narrating) Now Dokey had a dream too. He wanted to be his brother, Huey. Councilman Jack Trevor recently told Dokey how to achieve that dream. Unfortunately, things kept getting in the way.

    • Kevin: Okay, we got a problem.
      (He shows Jimmy Louie's cell phone)
      Jimmy: What's this?
      Kevin: Louie Downtown's cell phone.
      Jimmy: The one you were supposed to throw away!
      Kevin: Yeah, but that's not the problem.
      (Cut to Jimmy smashing the phone on the counter)
      Jimmy: That's how you're supposed to get rid of a cell phone, Kevin!
      Kevin: I guess I should've done that.

    • Joey: See, Tommy Donnelly's dream was to pursue all that art crap. Now, it's a little gay for me but for Tommy, it was the only thing other than Jenny Reilly that he ever really wanted. And he decided to go for it once and for all.
