“You the guy that dealt with Winslow?”

“Maybe. Why you asking?”

“Let it go, Charlie. They’re not buying it.” (Bebe whispers)

“Shut-up, Bebe! They are buying it!”(Whisper)

“Charley, they got muscle. We got no muscle. This is crazy. You want to die? Criminy!”(Bebe whispers)

“Okay, look, fellows, my partner wants to ‘pass’ and, me, I don’t want to pass. You said you wanted the best! This is the best rock money can buy. You got the money! We got the best rock! C’mon, let’s deal! It’s cold in this auditorium, and I don’t like being cold.”

“You don’t like being cold! You’re a tough guy, huh, Charley?”

“This has nothing to do with ‘tough’, guys. You get my meaning? You asked for the merchandise. I’m supplying it, Mr. Delaney, am I not right?”

“We talked it over, Charlie, me and my guys. We don’t like you. You’re the guy that got Winslow sent away. We know about you and your operation.We don’t wish to deal with you, and this stupid conversation is over.”

“Not yet, it ain’t. I’m selling. You’re buying. Give me the dough!”

“Put your toy pistol away, Charlie. You’re covered six ways of Sunday! You fire one shot, you and your partner are cold and dead. That’s what I’m selling, hot-shot! You buying? Hey, Bippy, show the man your artillery. You see Bippy over there, wise-guy, see his ‘semi’. Now, put your gun down, take the diamond out of your pocket, and hand it to me, nice and easy like. Don’t try any funny stuff unless you truly have a ‘death wish’.”

“Come on, Charley. Give him the ‘ice’ and let’s get outta here. They’re not fooling around here!”

“Shut-up, Bebe! I’m handling this. Get over there with Delaney.”

“But, Charley…”

“Go on, get over there with Bucky Delaney.”

“Okay, we ready, now?”

“Ladies and gentlemen, let the record show I had nothing to do with this arrangement. It was their doing, the way they wanted it.” Charley gave a big smile, and continued…

“Ladies and gentleman, we’re gathered here today to unite in holy matrimony Buchanon Delaney and Bebe Forrestall…”
