Doc Johnson: We’ve been givin’ him twenty five hundred a month for the past two years… and he come in here givin’ me orders. Shit. He works for me. He works for me same as the whores and the dealers.
Mattelli: I only took gambling money.
Doc Johnson: Ah, yeah, yeah. They all say that. No. No, you don’t take whorin’ money, you don’t take dirty junkie money. You only take nice, clean numbers money. Where do you think it comes from, them envelopes? Dirty money or clean money, it’s all the same. Now, get the hell outta here.
