Episode Summary

EDIT
Wiseguy (1)
AIRED:
Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) is freshly released from Newark State Penitentary after serving an 18-month stint to establish his cover as a small-time hoodlum. He meets with his real boss, FBI field supervisor Frank McPike (Jonathan Banks) and his coach and mentor, Stan Dermott and warns them he's not ready for his first assignment and wants down time. Dermott is killed by mob boss Dave Steelgrave and Vinnie demands to be put in to finish the investigation. He uses his ingenuity and his fists to get a foothold in the Steelgrave crime family. But it will take a while to finish this job as his new 'boss', Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey), becomes as much a friend as an assignment.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Sonny: One word of caution, Vinnie. It's a tough trade. Lots of people pushing and shoving. Everybody feeling pressure. Even at the bottom.
        Vinnie: I can handle that.
        Sonny: You mess up, you get dropped in a hole near the turnpike. Once a year we drive by and somebody says, 'Hey, isn't that the spot that we planted old Vinnie?' You get what I'm talking about?

      • Greco: We can chill him out, Sonny.
        Sonny: You nuts?! Dave already killed one frisbee. We kill another one we all gotta move to Tibet for the winter.

      • Frank: Take it easy, will ya. I don't like ya but I don't wanna have to bury you.
        Vinnie: That's a sweet sentiment, Frank. Now give us a kiss and I' ll see ya in a couple of months.

      • Vinnie: Does your mother have any idea what a total dink you turned into?
        Frank: My mother thinks I'm adorable.

      • Frank: So, how you doing? How was gladiator school?
        Vinnie: Oh, it was wonderful, Frank. It had everything...cockroach races. I even had a pet rat. It was your kinda place.
