Frank Sheeran ascends the ranks of the Italian mafia outside of southern Philadelphia, PA.

Frank Sheeran, The Irishman, Netflix, Tribeca Productions, Sikelia Productions, Winkler Films, Robert De Niro“When I was young, I thought house painters painted houses.  What did I know?  I was a working guy.  A business agent for Teamster Local 107 out of South Philly.  One of a thousand working stiffs… until I wasn’t no more.  And then… I started painting houses… myself.  In this particular matter, the whole thing was built around the wedding.  Bill Buffalino’s daughter was getting married in Detroit.  Bill was a Teamster lawyer, but more important, he was Russell Bufalino’s cousin.  Now, Russell didn’t want to fly, so I was gonna drive him to the wedding.  He wanted to take care of some business along the way, which in Russell’s case meant only one thing: money… collecting it.  So we’d drive.  Him and his wife Carrie and me and my wife Irene.  Or I call her Reenie.  I figured we would take 476 out of Philly, and then we go up to Pittston and pick up Russ, which is usually how we do it, and then Interstate 80 West through the rest of Pennsylvania, and then we’d go across Ohio, all the way to Toledo, and then we would go 75 North to Detroit.  It was gonna take about three days with all the business breaks and cigarette stops, since Russell didn’t allow nobody to smoke in the car.  He says Jimmy Blue Eyes and Meyer Lansky convinced him to stop smoking when they were getting kicked out of their Casinos in Cuba and getting shot at by Castro.  I don’t know.  It might have been one of those, ‘Please-God-if-I-ever-get-out-of-this-fucking-thing-alive-I’ll never smoke-again things too.’  But I do know that from Castro on, Russ wouldn’t allow nobody to smoke in his car, not even Carrie.  See where we are?” — Frank Sheeran

“I don’t… I don’t know.  It sounds funny.  It stops, it starts, it loses power.  I can drive ’em.  I can’t fix ’em.  I owe you anything?  Frank.  What’s your name?  Callahan’s.  Bocce Club.  But it’s a bar, it’s not a bocce club.  Nah.  Thank you.  I will.  Thanks again.  I mean, I thought maybe he owned the gas station.  ‘Cause he owned something, you could tell.  Yeah, it turns out he owned the whole road.” — Frank Sheeran

“Razor?  Razor’s his name?  Frank Sheeran.  You like steak?  I deliver steak.  Good steak.  I could deliver you steak.  I could.  Good price too.  The best.  Okay.  Ah, I don’t mind it.  All right.  I gotta go out anyway.  All right, Tony.  Thanks.” — Frank Sheeran

“I don’t go near Choice.  I only do Prime.  That’s it.  How many you want?  Okay.  Five, you got.” — Frank Sheeran

“Amen.  What the fuck is this?  Tony, I don’t… I don’t… I don’t know.  I mean… I don’t load the truck.  The loaders are supposed to load the truck.  Maybe they didn’t do their work.  I don’t know.  No.  I just… nothing.  It felt fine.  I’m telling you.  I… God’s truth.  I just don’t know what happened.  I don’t know.  Maybe some… I know it is.  I know it is.  Well, I’m telling you that I don’t know what’s going on.  Just don’t look at me ’cause I, you know… I’m telling you right now.  Me, I just drive the truck.  That’s all I do.  Yeah, you said right.  No.  No.  No.  On the job?  No.  What about stealing, that ain’t grounds?  I don’t think so.  No.  No names.  Yeah, I know.  Right.  What, you want to know if I did it or not?  Well… yeah, all right, but… I, I work hard for them when I ain’t stealing from ’em.” — Frank Sheeran

“Yes, Your Honor.  I don’t know how he did it and I ain’t gonna ask.  All I know is that Bill Bufalino got me out of a case I should never have gotten away with.  I should’ve been down for the count.  Instead, we went out celebrating… and I met what was gonna turn out to be the rest of my life.  You helped me with my truck a few months ago.  I fixed it the next day.  Thanks again.  No.  Your cousin saved my ass.  I could’ve lost the whole load.  I didn’t know who Russel Bufalino was back then, but I’d seen enough pictures and stories in the newspapers to know he was eatin’ with Angelo Bruno.  Bruno, he… he was just made the new boss of Philadelphia.  He took care of everything from Philadelphia to Atlantic City.  That, I knew.  And that was all I had to know to know that Russel Bufalino was no truck mechanic from Canada Dry.” — Frank Sheeran

“This bread is very good.  In Italy – the war.  Salerno.  Anzio.  Sicily… around Catania.  Yeah?  I thought you had an accent like Catania.  Four years.  411 days in combat… …122 at Anzio.  Forty-fifth Infantry.  Yeah.  Yeah.  Always afraid.  And don’t let anybody tell you that they weren’t afraid.  That’s a lot of bullshit.  You know?  Everybody’s afraid.  And you pray a lot.  I prayed a lot.  I prayed that I’d never sin again as long as I live if I could just get out of here.  But then the fighting starts again and then you forget about everything.  You’re just trying to survive, stay alive.  Once I saw that I was getting through the war, I looked around me, I said… I said, ‘from now on, whatever happens, happens.’  You know, you got orders, you follow them.  They tell you to bring some prisoners into… into the woods, you know, and they don’t tell you what to do… but they just say, you know, ‘hurry up.’  It’s crazy, but I never understood how they would just keep digging their own graves, you know.  I mean… stop!  Raus!  Well, I mean, maybe they thought if they did a good job, the guy with the gun would change his mind.  Russell, he… he took a shine to me right away.  After a while, he started giving me little things to do.  But then Angelo himself, he started giving me little things to do too.” — Frank Sheeran

“Russ’s wife, Carrie, her family goes all the way back, way, way back to the same town in Sicily as the Bufalinos.  They talked about it all the time.  She came from mob royalty, if you want to call it that.  To them, it was like they came over on the… the Italian Mayflower.  Fuck it.  Yeah, yeah, well, ask your husband.  Russell?  Sure?  We’re close to Lewisburg.  Okay.  Russell had a piece of everything.  He had a store in Pittston called Penn Drape & Curtains.  And he ran everything out of there.  Who knew what it all was?  I mean, I’m sure the man had partners.  They always have partners.  Nobody keeps all the money.  but everybody listened to Russ.  That I can tell you.  You wanted to bribe a judge, you asked Russell.  You didn’t know how much to bribe him, Russell was gonna tell you.  You want to promote one of your guys, Russ would tell you you could or could not.  You want to make somebody disappear, you got to get Russell’s permission.  You know, no two ways about it.  And when you did something for Russ, you did it yourself.  Like Russ used to say… when Anastasia got killed in the barbershop, they brought Russel in to calm things down, so that everybody wasn’t going around killing everybody and it could all get straightened out.  You’d never know it by looking at this guy, but all roads led back to Russ.” — Frank Sheeran

“He don’t have it.  He said something about his mother– yeah?  What do I do?  Hey.  Look.  Skinny wants to see you.  You get in the car.  Get in the fucking car.  Yeah, don’t get cute with me.  You give me that bullshit about your mother.  Get in the fucking car!  Get in the fucking car!  You want to get cute with me?  All that fucking bullshit about your mother and sick and all that and dying.  You’ll see him right now.  Swear on your mother.  Swear on your mother!  Swear on your mother!  What time are you gonna be here tomorrow?  Ten o’clock?  Get out of here.  Get out of here.” — Frank Sheeran

“Whats the matter with her?  He yelled at her?  He shoved her?  Did he shove you?  Who was this?  The guy at the store?  The grocery store on the corner?  Joe?  Did he?  Honey, did he shove you?  Just answer me.  Did he push you?  Did he shove you?  Whatever it is, did he do that?  Let’s go.  What do you mean, he didn’t mean it?  He touched her.  What, are you kidding me?  He has no right to push her.  Touch her.  Not even put one pinky on her.  That’s him, right?  Stay here.  Stay here.  You touched my daughter?  Take that, you motherfucker!” — Frank Sheeran

“Russell and Carrie baptized our new daughter, Dolores.  It was a wonderful occasion, and we were honored.  Everybody showed up.  The only thing is, you got more kids, you gotta earn more money.  Whispers DiTullio.  Not the Whispers they blew up in that car around the same time.  This was the other Whispers.  The good one who knew how to make money.  Whenever anybody says they’re a little concerned, they’re very concerned.  And when they say they’re more than a little concerned, they’re desperate.  Who… who are they?  This ain’t ten grand.” — Frank Sheeran

“I hit the number.  It’s about 1,500.  I’ll see you in a few hours.  Hey.  Now?  What’s it about?  Bombing out a laundry place.  Uh, I was just doing a job to make some extra money.  Putting this place out of action.  Putting this… putting this place out of commission.  Um… Whispers.  The other Whispers.  Some **** in the laundry business.  That’s what they told me.  No.  Who?  Angelo, I didn’t know you had any part of it.  I would never have done what I did if I knew you were involved.  I didn’t know.  I would never, never do that against you.  no, he said *** washerwoman.  He did.  I didn’t check.  I’m sorry.  I should’ve checked.  Can I give him his money back?  I’ll just give it back to him and I’m okay.  Okay.  Thanks.  Oh, I… I know.” — Frank Sheeran

“In a case like this, the best thing to do is you use something brand new.  Right out of the box.  Otherwise, you don’t know where it’s been.  You don’t know who’s used it, what crime it was connected to.  That’s suicide.  So I recommend something new, straight out of the… the box.  Stone cold.  Clean.  Hey.  Huh?  Naturally, the next thing you wanna do is throw the thing away.  You wanna get rid of it.  There’s a spot in the Schuylkill River everybody uses.  If they ever send divers down there, they’d be able to arm a small country.  For me, everything changed after Whispers.  It was like the army.  You followed orders.  You did the right thing.  You got rewarded.  When I handled things for Russell, it was never for money, but as a show of respect.  When you ran a little errand, you did a little favor, you got a little favor back if you ever needed it.  And you always hurried back.  Hey, Phil, how you doing?  Thank you, Vito.  Hi.  Uh, I’m just gonna get the wine now.  I will.  Thanks.  She’s the new one, right?  Yeah.” — Frank Sheeran

“No time is a good time to leave your wife, but that’s when I left mine.  No, no.  That’s the way she is.  She’s afraid of me at times too.  So, uh, it’s just she’s a sensitive kid, but that’s all it is.  No, well… and then she hears about me in the papers sometimes… yeah.  I am.  I am.  Hey.  Sweetheart.  Peggy.  Come here.  Come here.  Come here.  A little joke.  Huh?  Isn’t that funny?  She’s just… she’s shy, that’s all.  she… she don’t mean nothing.  No, you’re right.  I’m lucky in that way because Reenie and Mary, they get along like gangbusters, so the kids go back and forth with no problem.  I mean, I’m… I’m just lucky.  The union’s the best in the world.  Yeah, well, it’s just… I mean, I wish I had something more steady, but… yeah, it’s… yeah.  I would like to do that.  But… there’s a long line.  A long waiting list, if you will.  Who’s that?  Hoffa?  Yeah.  Yeah, I heard he beat the shit out of them.  Yeah.” — Frank Sheeran

“Hello.  Yes.  Yeah, yeah.  Glad to meet you.  Yes.  Yes, sir, I… I do.  I do.  And I, uh… I also do my own carpentry.  Yes, sir.  Local 107.  Since 1947.  Well, thank you.  Well, I do my best.  Nowadar’s young people, they don’t know who Jimmy Hoffa was.  They don’t have a clue.  I mean, maybe they know that he disappeared or something, but that’s about it.  But back then, there wasn’t nobody in this country who didn’t know who Jimmy Hoffa was.  In the ’50s, he was as big as Elvis.  In the ’60s, he was like the Beatles.  Next to the president, he was like the most powerful man in the country.  Bar none.  Yes, I do, sir.  Yes, I would.  Whatever you need me to do, I’m available.  Yes, I can, sir.  Yeah.  Thought I was talking to General Patton.” — Frank Sheeran

“Hey, Peggy.  Come over here.  I don’t know.  I don’t… I get the feeling she don’t like me.  Like she’s afraid of me.  I can understand her being afraid of me, but she shouldn’t be scared of you, Frank.  Really?  You gotta be close to your kids, Frank.  You’re blessed to have them.  I mean, Carrie and I can’t have kids.  I told you.  But you’re blessed.  You’re blessed.  Call her.  Call her.  Tell her to come over.  Come over by Uncle Russ.  How are you?  Do you know why God made the sky so high?  So that the little birdies don’t bunk their head on it when they’re flying around.  Isn’t that cute?  You want some candy or something?  No, you guys don’t want any candy.  There’s nothing I could do for you?  Well, if there is, you let Uncle Russell know.  Go back.  Have some fun.  You see what I mean?  You see that feeling I get?  Sometimes, when the parents get divorced, the kid get all confused and then they get resentful and they don’t know who to take it out on, or, you know, which side, or… keep your family close.  Keep an eye on that.  Anyway, I’m just telling you, you know.  Yeah.  How’s it going with the union?  You like it, huh?  How about organizing?  Yeah?  Yeah.  Well, a friend of ours is having a little trouble.  Friend at the top.  The top.  Yeah.  I heard the other day that some guys tried to pipe him because of a workman’s comp case.  Yeah, but how long is he gonna keep doing that?  Things are gonna keep happening.  He needs somebody he can trust around him.  Somebody to be with him all the time.  Hello.  Hiya, my friend.  How are you?  Listen, I got that kid I was talking to you about here.  I’m gonna put him on the phone, let you talk to him, okay?  All right.  He likes to talk, don’t he?” — Russell Bufalino

“Uh, under the contract, thanks to Jimmy Hoffa… management can only fire a driver on very specific charges.  So, you ever show up late?  Do you have any moving violations?  Do you drink on the job?  You ever hit anybody?  Yeah.  Okay.  Well… can they prove it?  All right then, we don’t have nothing to worry about.  If they can prove it, they’re just gonna want names from you.  Accomplices.  That’s all.  You give them a couple of names, you go home.  Keep your job.  what do you think about that?  Would you give them names?  You know, I don’t, uh… I don’t care whether you did it or not.  That makes no difference to me.  I’m here to defend you.  Right?  I’m gonna defend you either way.” — Bill Bufalino

“Your Honor, if this was about right or wrong, the company would have sought Mr. Sheeran’s dismissal.  They didn’t.  They only accused Mr. Sheeran because the company hoped he could name conspirators, which he couldn’t do because they don’t exist.  They don’t exist because he didn’t steal anything.  He didn’t steal anything because he’s an exemplary employee, who in eight years has never taken a day of sick leave.  The only rule he ever broke is his own union’s, by helping others carry sides of beef from his truck to their refrigerators in the dead of winter.” — Bill Bufalino

“They’re gonna appreciate what you did today.  They got families, they got kids.  They need those jobs.  Can I introduce you to this new guy Frank?  Frank, I want you to meet my cousin Russell Bufalino.  Yeah.  Well, he knows everything about trucks.  We worked at Canada Dry for a long time.  Vito, how are you?  Let’s take the booth.  Come on.” — Bill Bufalino

“You wanna make a quick ten grand?  I got this place I front money to.  It’s a good business.  Really good business.  It’s a laundry.  What they do is, they collect the linen, towels, sheets and everything from all the hotels and restaurants in Atlantic City.  They wash it, they iron it.  Normally, it’s like a license to print fucking money.  Until recently.  There’s this other company that opened up down in Delaware.  They’re trying to put is out of business.  They’re cutting their prices.  They’re scaring our drivers.  They’re trying to take our customers from us.  To tell you the truth, I’m a little concerned.  As a matter of fact, I’m really more than a little concerned.  I want this fucking place bombed, burnt, torched, whatever the fuck you have to do.  You were in the war.  You know what to do.  Leave that fucking place like you left Berlin.  Burnt to the fucking ground.  I want them out of the fucking business.  It’s the Cadillac Linen Service in Delaware.  It’s run by a bunch of ****.  Let them collect their insurance, which I’m sure they have plenty, and leave this fucking other place alone, and one I’m involved in.  It’s two grand.  When you put these *** fucking washerwomen out of business, then you get the rest of your money.  The reason I’m a little short on the money right now, I don’t wanna go to Skinny, I don’t wanna ask anybody when they’re gonna charge me a vig, and I’m gonna be paying them forever.  I’m getting the money somewhere else.  And nobody has to know.  Especially not Skinny because I’m not getting the money from him.  And I see you look a little hesitant.  Believe me, I know what you can do.  If I stiff you on the money, you’re gonna do something terrible to me.  I do not want that.” — Whispers DiTullio

“Hey, there you are.  I didn’t know which way you were coming from.  I didn’t know which way–” — Whispers DiTullio

“Frank, I’m sorry, but your kid was out of line.  I only did what… God, I’m sorry.  No.  Please.  No, no, Frank.  Frank, please, please, please.  No.  Oh, my fucking hand.  My fucking hand!” — Grocer


“All rise.  Court is in session.  I’m dismissing this case with a warning.  No, not you, Mr. Sheeran.  You bring another working man before this court with threats instead of evidence, believe me, you’ll be sorry.  If I owned stock in this company, I would sell it.” — Judge


“Salute!  Drink up, fellas.  God bless.  Let’s go.  Let’s go.  Let’s make some money today.  It’s a bar.  Say hello to your wife, huh?  Yeah, you’ll make a lot of money with him.  He’s got a lot of good action, good connections.” — Bartender
