Lucky Luciano: There's another 50 in the car. They're ingersolls. Meyer Lansky: I wish you would stop with this. We schlep around with a box of watches, what do we look like? Lucky Luciano: Fellas who know what time it is. Meyer Lansky: Might as well set up a pushcart. Benny Siegel: (comes in, surprised) Arnold Rothstein's here. Meyer Lansky: We're talking, Benny. Benny Siegel: Oh. So I should tell him go fuck a duck? Lucky Luciano: Enough with the crazy shit already, huh? Meyer Lansky: (glancing at Rothstein through the window) Bring him in before he breaks the house. (they scramble to look presentable) Meyer Lansky: A.R., did you come to sit in? Lucky Luciano: You know you're always welcome. Arnold Rothstein: I'm afraid those sharpers out there'd fleece me. Owing to his present difficulties, I've made a deal with Nucky Thompson. He'll be offloading his liquor shipments in Philadelphia. Waxey Gordon will ensure safe arrival. The route to Atlantic city will be my responsibility. Meyer Lansky: And you'd like us to recruit the muscle? Arnold Rothstein: I would like you to be the muscle. Lucky Luciano: A.R., we, uh, got some business going on just now. Arnold Rothstein: I can see that. But Mr. Thompson is paying me a premium. Lucky Luciano: Anybody could ride shotgun. Arnold Rothstein: Until you encounter Indians. Meyer Lansky: We're honored by your trust, A.R., and flattered that you would come below 14th street to discuss it personally. Aren't we, Charlie? Lucky Luciano: Sure. Arnold Rothstein: As it happens, I was down here having dinner with Joe Masseria, who left me with the distinct impression he'd still like both of you dead. Lucky Luciano: You broke bread with that prick? Arnold Rothstein: We were served a native dish of tripe, which I cannot abide. But I ate it anyway, to keep the peace. Some things, Charlie, you just have to swallow.
