Ness:
We have several operations in the works, so we're rather busy, Alderman. What can we do for you?

Alderman:
I came up to congratulate you on a job well done. Share your good fortune on such a lovely day.

[Drops bribe envelope on the desk]

Ness:
What's that?

[shrugs and giggles]

Ness:
What is that.

Alderman:
Mr. Ness, you're an educated man. Let me pay you the compliment of being blunt. There's a large, a large and popular business that you are causing dismay. Why don't you just cross the street and let things take their course.

Ness:
[Summoning the team] Would you come in here please? [as the team enters] In Roman times, when a when a fellow was convicted of trying to bribe a public official, they would cut off his nose, and sew him in a bag with a wild animal, and throw him in a river. [picking up the bribe and throwing it at the Alderman] You tell your master that we must agree to disagree!

Alderman:
You're making a mistake.

Ness:
Yeah I know, well I've made them before I'm beginning to enjoy them.

Alderman:
You fellows are untouchable, is that the thing? No one can get to you? Hey, everyone can be gotten to.

Ness:
You tell Capone, that I'll see him in hell.
