Fred Blake:
[writing his memoirs]
I won't spare myself. I'll tell the story without trying to make myself look good. But in this chapter I'll do the opposite and demonstrate to you that if you take a closer look, I'm a good guy. I'll prove it to you in 10 points. A bit like one of Letterman's Late Show Top 10 Lists. So here we go...
Fred Blake:
10: I am always up front. Always.
[sneaks up and shoots a couple of guys in a car]

Fred Blake:
Number 9: I never look for a scape goat.
[tied up and laughing at thugs that are beating him up]

Fred Blake:
Number 8: If you give me a job, I'll always see it through.
[dunking a guy into liquid nitrogen]

Fred Blake:
Number 7: I've never shown contempt for people who fear me.
[robbing some Hasidic Jews]

Fred Blake:
Number 6: I've never betrayed the guy who gave me my first gun.
[refuses to identify Fat Willy in court]

Fred Blake:
Number 5: I never wished any harm on anybody.
[demonstrates his influence over street cops]

Fred Blake:
Number 4: I lived outside the law, but only outlaws didn't judge me.
[schmoozing with wise guys]

Fred Blake:
Number 3: Anybody who doesn't contradict me can expect nothing but good things from me.
[pays off a photographer to not photograph him]

Fred Blake:
Number 2: In my neighborhood when I was running it, there was never a single robbery on the street.
[glad-handing around town]

Fred Blake:
People lived and slept peacefully.
Fred Blake:
Number 1 of the top 10 reasons why I'm a good guy? I don't like to cause pain for no reason, because all my sadistic urges are satisfied when I cause pain for a good reason.
[beating the plumber with a baseball bat until the bat breaks]

Fred Blake:
Wait, I'm not fuckin' finished.
[grabs a 3-pound hammer from the plumber's bag]

Transcript:
one of the nastiest bastards
ever to walk the earth.
I won't spare myself, I'll tell the story
without trying to make myself look good.
But in this chapter, I'll do the opposite
and demonstrate to you
that if you take a closer look,
I'm a good guy.
I'll prove it to you in ten points,
a bit like one of Letterman's Late Show
top ten lists.
So here we go.
Number 10...
I am always upfront, always.
You promised me the fucking money.
Where's my fucking money?
- Bust.
- Oh, yeah?
[YELLS]
GIOVANNI:
Number 9: I never look for a scapegoat.
Number 8: if you give me a job,
I'll always see it through.
No... No.
[SCREAMING]
GIOVANNI: Number 7: I never showed contempt
for people who feared me.
Don't move for ten minutes,
you understand?
Number 6: I never betrayed the guy
who gave me my first gun.
Did you ever work for this man?
GIOVANNI: Number 5:
I never wished any harm on anybody.
- Hey, man.
- Hey.
- Hey, what's goin' on?
- Hey.
Hey, punk.
No, it's all right.
GIOVANNI: Number 4:
I lived outside the law,
but only outlaws didn't judge me.
[CHATTER, LAUGHTER]
Number 3: Anybody
who doesn't contradict me
can expect nothing
but good things from me.
No more pictures, you understand?
Thank you.
- GIOVANNI: Number 2...
- Hey, Giovanni...
In my neighborhood,
when I was running it,
there was never
a single robbery on the street.
People lived and slept easy.
Number 1: Of the top ten reasons
why I'm a good guy,
I don't like to cause pain
for no reason because
all my sadistic urges are satisfied
when I cause pain for a good reason.
[RAMIREZ SCREAMING]

Wait, I'm not fucking finished.

- I had.
It's just one.
I needed it.
