If you’re part of a crew, nobody ever tells you that they’re going to kill you, doesn’t happen that way. There weren’t any arguments or curses like in the movies. See, your murderers come with smiles, they come as your friends, the people who’ve cared for you all of your life. And they always seem to come at a time that you’re at your weakest and most in need of their help.  Goodfellas, 1990

When former wiseguy Henry Hill, played by Ray Liotta in the film Goodfellas, was in the mafia, he was making $15,000 to $40,000 a week, but he had such a gambling problem that in any given week he could lose just as much. “The government said a couple of hundred million dollars went through my hands. But I just blew it on slow horses, women, drugs, and rock n’ roll.” Source
