          Your Use Of Language

          Sonny Wortzik: I'm robbing a bank because they got money here. That's why I'm robbing it.
          Anchor: No, what I mean is why do you feel you have to steal for money? Couldn't you get a job?
          Sonny Wortzik: Uh, no. Doing what? You know if you want a job you've got to be a member of a union. See, and if you got no union card you don't get a job.
          Anchor: What about non-union occupations?
          Sonny Wortzik: What's wrong with this guy? What do you mean non-union, like what? A bank teller? You know how much a bank teller makes a week? Not much. A hundred and fifteen to start, right? Now are you going to live on that? A got a wife and a couple of kids, how am I going to live on that? What do you make a week?
          Anchor: Well I'm here to talk to you, Sonny...
          Sonny Wortzik: Well I'm talking to you. We're entertainment, right? What do you got for us?
          Anchor: Well what do you want to get for it? Do you expect to be paid because...
          Sonny Wortzik: No, I don't want to be paid, I don't need to be paid. Look, I'm here with my partner and nine other people, see. And we're dying, man. You know? You're going to see our brains on the sidewalk, they're going to spill our guts out. Now are you going to show that on television? Have all your housewives look at that? Instead of As the World Turns? I mean what do you got for me? I want something for that.
          Anchor: Sonny, you could give up.
          Sonny Wortzik: Give up? Right. Have you ever been in prison?
          Anchor: No!
          Sonny Wortzik: No! Well let's talk about something you f*cking know about, okay? How much do you make a week? That's what I want to hear. Are you going to talk to me about that?
          TV: Sorry, this has been interrupted...
          Sonny Wortzik: Hey, what the f*ck happened?
          Mulvaney: I guess he didn't appreciate your use of language.
          Sonny Wortzik: F*ck him.
