Best quote of the show so far IMO
Rothstein: Flip a coin. When it's in the air, you'll know which side you're hoping for.
So true!

Nucky and Eddie, in a shout out to Mad Men's Don and Allison:

Eddie, why is this bourbon empty?

Because someone drank it.


In a way Nucky's and Eddie's relationship almost reminds me more of the relationship between Caesar and Posca in Rome. The snark is always there but Eddie/Posca would die for Nucky/Caesar.

Eli, to Nucky, as he pushes a gun towards Nucky: "Take it. Go on. Pick it up. Put a bullet in me already. Get it over with. 'Cause I know you will....sooner or later. And I'm sick of waitin' for it."

I thought this was one of Shea Whigham's best scenes as Eli.

From Season 3, Episode 8, "The Pony":

At the meeting between Johnny Torrio and Dean O'Banion and their respective entourages, with Nelson van Alden there as muscle:

Al Capone: What's in the case?
Dean O'Banion: Tell him, George.
Nelson: Irons.
Dean: Yeah. Press you out...nice and flat.

Something about this whole exchange had me laughing.

Eddie: "I'm sorry for your loss"

Nucky: "Don't be an idiot." {literally burst out laughing. poor eddie)


Eli: "The fuck...?"



Margaret: "Will you teach me to drive?"

Owen: "Now?"

Margaret: "After."


And, while it was not a "quote," the look on Nucky's face after the actor told him the studio would sue him for damages--just pure malevolence.


Richard: "Jimmy deserved better than this." Deadpan. Oh my.

This quip from a few episodes back, during an exchange between Nucky and Esther, over a 25 cent breakfast in greasy spoon, really captures Esther's dry wit.

Esther Randolph: "I'm all lace and potpourri."

Conversation between Eddie and Nucky whilst Eddie's helping him to get dressed to meet with the head gangsters in the Ritz:-

Nucky (calmly referring to A.R): Did you get the milk and cake?

Eddie: Yes

Nucky (suddenly exclaiming): He eats like a fucking child!

Made me laugh out loud! :)

Season 3, episode 11: Two Imposters.
20-minute mark. Luciano is bitching to Lansky about selling heroin to possibly untrustworthy buyers in order to pay off their debt to Joe Masseria. Lansky is cautioning him to be more careful about who he does business with.

Meyer Lansky: You didn't hear what happened last night?
Lucky Luciano: Your mother served pork chops? How the fuck do I know?

I take it we are to presume Mrs. Lansky kept a kosher home, which would make the appearance of porkchops on her table rather notable. The only other thing we know for certain about Jews from BE is that "they fuck their women through a hole in the sheet" - Joe Masseria
