FBI Technician: What's forget about it?
Donnie Brasco: Forget about it is like if you agree with someone, you know, like Raquel Welch is one great piece of ass, forget about it. But then, if you disagree, like A Lincoln is better than a Cadillac? Forget about it! you know? But then, it's also like if something's the greatest thing in the world, like mingia those peppers, forget about it. But it's also like saying Go to hell! too. Like, you know, like "Hey Paulie, you got a one inch pecker?" and Paulie says "Forget about it!" Sometimes it just means forget about it.
Lefty: I never hear from my boss until he dies, then my whole life gets turned upside down!
Donnie Brasco: If I come out alive, this guy, Lefty, ends up dead. That's the same thing as me putting the bullet in his head myself.
Lefty: When they send for you, you go in alive, you come out dead, and it's your best friend that does it.
Lefty: How much money did you give that guy? A wiseguy never pays for his drinks.
Nicky: C'mon Donnie, let's fillet this fat fuck.
Lefty Ruggiero: Thirty years I'm busting my hump. What have I got?
Lefty: Who the fuck am I? Who am I? I'm a, a spoke on a wheel. And so was he, and so are you.
Joe Pistone: All my life I've tried to be the good guy, the guy in the white fucking hat. And for what? For nothing. I'm not becoming like them; I am them.
Lefty: And listen to me, if Donnie calls... , tell him... if it was gonna be anyone, I'm glad it was him. All right?
Lefty: A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right.
Lefty: If anything should happen to me... make sure Annette gets the car.
Lefty: There's the boss. And, under him, there's the skipper. You know how this works?
Donnie Brasco: Yeah, it's like in the army.
Lefty: Bullshit. The army is some guy you don't know telling you to go whack some other guy you don't know.
Lefty: I die with you, Donnie.
Donnie Brasco: You think I'm a rat...?
Lefty: How many times have I had you in my house? If you're a rat, then I'm the biggest mutt in the history of the Mafia.
Sonny Black: You know what we do when we find that rat, right, Lefty?
Lefty: 'Could be I found him already.
Lefty: I think I just shit my pants.
Nicky: The good news is, my dick is now a popsicle!
Lefty: I got cancer of the prick.
Donnie Brasco: [Joe's kids are giving him the silent treatment] I bet you can't get through breakfast without saying three words
Daughter: [beaming up at him] You lose!
Sonny Black: I like it. I like it big time!
Lefty: [talking to Donnie] When I introduce you, I'm gonna say, "This is a friend of mine." That means you're a connected guy. Now if I said instead, this is a friend of ours that would mean you a made guy. A Capiche?
[Lefty is banging a parking meter very loudly with a hammer]
Sonny Black: Hey, will you fuckin' stop that?
Lefty: How am I gonna get this thing open?
[looks back at the meter]
Lefty: Open Sesame!
[Lefty is cooking dinner]
Lefty: Punch of salt.
Donnie Brasco: Punch?
Lefty: Punch. Punch of salt.
Donnie Brasco: Punch or pinch?
Lefty: Punch, punch. Not pinch. What'd I say? I say pinch?
Donnie Brasco: Nah, you said... you said punch.
Lefty: Sometimes you don't make no fuckin' sense, Donnie.
Donnie Brasco: Hey Richie, what are you trying to do, get me killed with that fucking suit?
Richard 'Richie' Gazzo: What?
Donnie Brasco: That fucking car, purple fucking car. Don't say the word plotz, you understand?
Richard 'Richie' Gazzo: Yeah, yeah.
Japanese Waiter: Take your shoes off.
Joe Pistone: Take my shoes off? You take your pants off, what the fuck.
Lefty Ruggiero: Anywhere you go, all around the world, all the best cooks are men.
Lefty: Shes a good woman, Annette. One broad, that's enough for anyone.
Lefty: Whackin' the boss... another thing I get left out of.
Donnie Brasco: [to his fellow wiseguys, after he punches a man who tries to expose him] Fuckin' asshole, he grabbed my cock!
Lefty: I'm tellin' ya, Donnie... nothin' but nothin' but right.
Jilly: Look, Left, I said I knew him. I didn't say I fucked him.
Lefty: You're gonna walk out on me? You don't walk out on me. I walk out on you.
Nicky: [playing Gin] Look at this hand. This ain't a hand. This is a fuckin deformed Creature from the Black fuckin Lagoon's claw I got here.
Donnie Brasco: 20 years you know a guy, you fuckin' wack him out just like that over a lounge? That's beautiful.
