The Chicago Way

“You think this is revenge? What does that even mean? An eye for an eye? You sleep with my girl, I sleep with yours? What do you think I am? No, this isn’t revenge. It ain’t even business. It’s life. You ever see the Untouchables? Has that guy… what’s his name. Old guy. Anyway. Has a great line in it. Somethin’ about knives and guns. Oh, I remember: ‘Someone puts your boy in the hospital, you put him in the morgue.’ Somethin’ like that. Great line. Has a point to. And you put my boy in the hospital.”

Bang.
