Leonard Diamond:
I know his name. The name of a man who will pick up a phone and call Chicago and New Orleans and say "Hey Bill, Joe is coming down for the weekend. Advance him fifty thousand," and he hangs up the phone and the money's advanced, protection money. A new all night bar opens, with gambling outside city limits. A bunch of high school kids come in for a good time. They get loaded, they get irresponsible, they lose their shirts. Then they get a gun, cause they're worried, they want to make up their losses. And a filling station attendant is dead with a bullet in his liver. I have to see four kids on trial for first degree murder. Look at it. First degree murder, because a certain Mr. Brown picked up a phone.

Joe McClure:
Mr. Brown is a very reasonable man. You don't know him.



Leonard Diamond:
Oh, is he? Well I'm not. I intend to make life very difficult for your Mr. Brown.



Joe McClure:
You shouldn't talk like that, Lieutenant. You're overstepping your authority.



Mr. Brown:
Joe, the man has reason to hate me. His salary is $96.50 a week. The busboys in my hotel make better money than that. Don't you see, Joe? He's a righteous man.

Mr. Brown:
Now, Benny, who runs the world? Do you have any idea?



Bennie Smith:
Not me, Mr. Brown.



Mr. Brown:
That's right, not you, but a funny thing, they're not so much different from you, but they've got something. They've got it, and they use it. I've got it;


[pointing to McClure]



Mr. Brown:
he hasn't. What is it, Benny? What makes the difference...? Hate! Hate is the word, Benny! Hate the man that tries to beat you. Kill 'em, Benny! Kill 'em! Hate him till you see red, and you'll come out winning the big money, and the girls will come tumblin' after. You'll have to shut off the phone and lock the door to get a night's rest.

How about some paint thinner?

No, that'll kill him. Anything else?



Fante:
Hair tonic, 40% alcohol.



Mr. Brown:
Fine.
