    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Baglia: A man isn't a man until he holds his child in his hands. Then...then he's a god.

      • Carlotta: What good is a man who loves his own children but murders someone else's?

      • Lifeguard: Hey, hey, Vinnie! What's the word?
        Vinnie: Tell McPike Patrice just made a move on me.
        Lifeguard: Ooh, did you give him your number?
        Vinnie: No. I gave him yours.
        Lifeguard: (laughs) I'll have my hair done.

      • Pat: Think about it, Vinnie. Everything in life's a small marriage. You buy a pink car, you're married to it. You get serious with a woman, you're married. Your job...it's a marriage. You got the right situation, you stay faithful. But sometimes a guy's in a wrong situation. A beautiful woman pulls up in a golden T-bird and offers you perfection forever...it's hard to go back to an old marriage.

      • Vinnie: I'm not sure I know what happiness is.
        Pat: It's different for everybody. For me, it's always been having the creases of my pants so sharp you could slice tomatoes on them.
        Vinnie: (looks down) In that case, you must be thrilled.

      • Syd: Terranova's seducible.

      • Sonny: My brother Dave's on my mind, Don Baglia. He gave the world a beautiful daughter. But he didn't make a boy to carry on the name.
        Baglia: Rest his soul, you could tell Dave was a girl-maker.

      • Vinnie: I just figured 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for nothing?'

      • Sonny: Ya see, I figured that if I sat next to you all night--in that gorgeous dress--I'm liable to make some bold suggestions and your father will go nuts.
        Theresa: Sonny, you make the right suggestions...maybe I'll go nuts.

      • Harry: Nah, there ain't no monkey business going on in here. It's politics. It's like when the President goes to visit some little dump like England. No, the country don't mean squat, but it's important that he shows everybody else that he's kept the ties strong.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Sonny's bachelor party
        The entire bachelor dinner/murder is pretty much an homage to Robert De Niro's tour de force 'enthusiams' scene in De Palma's The Untouchables. Instead of Al 'Scarface' Capone and a baseball bat it's Sonny Steelgrave garrotting the duplicitous Paul 'Pat the Cat' Patrice with piano wire.
