Sam GiancanaEdit

  • [To Phyllis] You wanted Venice. I built you Venice.
  • We do you a favor. We want our Casino's in Havana back, okay? That's number one. Number two, no interference in the shrimp business. But first of all, I want you wire tapping geniuses to bug this fucking Dan Rowan.


Robert F. Kennedy: Giancana is it true that you are now the most powerful Mob figure here in America.
Sam Giancana: I decline to answer because I honestly believe that my answer might incriminate me.

Phyllis McGuire: I'm not who you think I am.
Sam Giancana: Mrs McGuire, maybe I'm not who you think I am.

Robert F. Kennedy: Giancana is it true that if you have any opposition from anyone that you have them stuffed into a trunk of a car and murdered.
Sam Giancana: (short pause) I decline to answer.

Sam Giancana: Who's the one in the middle.
Butch Blasi: It's the McGuire sisters. The one in the middle is Phyllis McGuire.
