) and the director (Nick Gomez

[Tony calls Hesh
I'm here with my non-shellfish eatin' friend. I gotta tell you somethin', I'm tapped out. This guy won't listen to reason.
Didn't I tell you, huh? Didn't I warn you to keep away from those fanatics?
He's leaving me no options. This guy's willing to go down with the ship like no man I've ever seen.
Here's a thought... Maybe he's willing to go to the world to come, but if he's stuck here on this earth, I know one thing that no man wants to go through life without.
