  • I had to go the Santo Domingo bar and I had to find Agent XK-120, whom I'd never met.
  • Mary-Belle Monahan, alias Mary-Monahan Belle, alias Belle-Mary Monahan, alias Monahan Marybelle: they say she was a gun moll just because Lucky Luciano gave her a Rolls Royce every Christmas and they can't really prove she sneaked into the Hollywood Bowl with a tommygun and rubbed out the convention of police chiefs in 1956. Oh, I knew that she got nailed cold when she was pushing heroin in the laundry room at Boys' Town, but I'm willing to give anyone the benefit of the doubt - especially when she's as crazy-looking as Mary-Belle.
  • Renzo loved Mary-Belle, but he was the skipper and decided to go down ahead of his ship.
  • So I got the girl... and guess who got the gold.


Renzo Capetto: Alright, baby, listen. You hold on to these 'cause I can't use 'em without Pete or Jack to help.
Mary-Belle Monahan: I'll keep 'em warm for ya.

Renzo Capetto: You can go anywhere you like. I'm going home.
Cuban Colonel: To America?
Renzo Capetto: America? No, I can't go back there anymore... Sicily.
Cuban Colonel: Oh.
Renzo Capetto: I've got an uncle there who's been after me for years to help him stamp grapes. It's beginning to appeal to me.

Mary-Belle Monahan: You made that monster up out of thin air! Now don't try to tell me it's real. I'm not that stupid.
Pete Peterson Jr.: Well, *I* am!
