Paul Cicero Quotes in Goodfellas (1990)


Paul Cicero Quotes:

  • Henry Hill: [narrating] I felt he used too many onions, but it was still a very good sauce.

    Paul Cicero: Vinnie, don't put too many onions in the sauce.

    Vinnie: I didn't put too much onions, uh, Paul. Three small onions. That's all I did.

    Johnny Dio: Three onions? How many cans of tomatoes you put in there?

    Vinnie: I put two cans, two big cans.

    Johnny Dio: You don't need three onions.

  • Paul Cicero: I don't want any more of that shit.

    Henry Hill: What shit? What are you talking about?

    Paul Cicero: Just stay away from the garbage, you know what I mean.

    Henry Hill: Look, Paulie...

    Paul Cicero: I'm not talking about what you did inside, you did what you had to do, I'm talking about now, from now, here and now.

    Henry Hill: Paulie, why would I want to get into that...

    Paul Cicero: Don't make a jerk out of me, just don't do it... just don't do it. Now I want to talk to you about Jimmy, you have to watch out for him. He's a good earner but he's wild, takes too many chances.

    Henry Hill: Yeah, I know that, I know Jimmy, you think I would take chances like Jimmy?

    Paul Cicero: And Tommy, he's a good kid too. But he's crazy, he's a cowboy, he's got too much to prove. You gotta watch out for kids like this.

    Henry Hill: Yeah, I know what they are, I only use them for certain things, believe me, you don't have to worry.

    Paul Cicero: Listen, I ain't gonna get fucked like Gribbs, understand? Gribbs is 70 years old, and the fuckin' guy's gonna die in prison. I don't need that. So I'm warning everybody, EVERYBODY. It could be my son, it could be anybody. Gribbs got 20 years just for saying "hello" to some fuck who was sneaking behind his back selling junk. I don't need that. Ain't gonna happen to me, you understand?

    Henry Hill: Uh huh.

    Paul Cicero: You know that you're only out early because I got you a job. I don't need this heat, understand that.

    Henry Hill: Uh huh.

    Paul Cicero: And you see anybody fucking around with this shit, you're going to tell me, right?

    Henry Hill: Yeah.

    Paul Cicero: [slaps him] That means anybody!

    Henry Hill: All right.

    Paul Cicero: Yeah?

    Henry Hill: Yeah, of course.

  • Johnny Dio: How do you like your steak?

    Paul Cicero: Medium rare.

    Johnny Dio: Huh. An aristocrat.

  • Paul Cicero: Tommy's a bad seed. What am I supposed to do? Shoot him?

    Sonny Bunz: That wouldn't be a bad idea.

  • Paul Cicero: You know anything about this fucking restaurant business?

    Sonny Bunz: [Talking to Henry] He knows everything about it. I mean, he's in the joint 24 hours a day. I mean, another fucking few minutes, he could be a stool, that's how often he's in there.
