Yeah, okay. I'm tellin' ya, I'm spillin' my guts, don't rush me. You'll get it all. It was me and Carlo ("The Bunny") Noumena -- they called him "The Bunny", ya know, 'cause he had dis hare lip, dat he got from when "Big Danny" MacAllister -- gimme a glassa watta, okay? Before I start recursin' here. Gino, you know Gino? Yeah, Gino. Gino always told me, "Theo, Ted, Theo ya little fucka', you go recursin' on me I split ya lousy head open, ya hear me?" So I hear him, ya know? I hear him. Gotta have some discipline in da family, gotta have it.
