A Bronx Tale (1993)
Calogero 'C' Anello: It was great to be Catholic and go to confession. You could start over every week.

Sonny: Alright, listen to me. You pull up right where she lives, right? Before you get outta the car, you lock both doors. Then, get outta the car, you walk over to her. You bring her over to the car. Dig out the key, put it in the lock and open the door for her. Then you let her get in. Then you close the door. Then you walk around the back of the car and look through the rear window. If she doesn't reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in: dump her.
Calogero 'C' Anello: Just like that?
Sonny: Listen to me, kid. If she doesn't reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in, that means she's a selfish broad and all you're seeing is the tip of the iceberg. You dump her and you dump her fast.

Lorenzo: About what?
Detective Belsik: There was a shooting in front of the building a little while ago and we believe your son was there.
Lorenzo: Really? Well, he don't know nothin' about that.
Detective Belsik: Well, we feel he DOES. There were people who saw him.
Lorenzo: Well, they're WRONG. He don't know nothin'.
Detective Belsik: Listen, Mr. Anello, we could do things the nice way or we could do things the hard way. Alright? We could go down to headquarters...

I learned to give love and get love unconditionally. You just have to accept people for what they are, and I learned the greatest gift of all.

But you can ask anybody from my neighborhood, and they'll just tell you this is just another Bronx tale.
