Oh, too soon?... (19.33)

Bobby: Go for the Recession Special, even though the recession's over. You know what? I'm not even sure which recession they're referring to. They all end, though. Yours can, too. And two dogs and a drink at that price is a hell of a deal.

Ira: You done? 'Cause I'm just getting ready to go. Civil suit. Reimbursement and damages. I help EDNY hang a guilty verdict on you, and my case is the Dream Team versus Cuba. Even if you slither out of the criminal courts, I hammer you like the Goldmans did O.J.

Bobby: Ira, if that felon found a way not to pay a penny, what do you think I'm gonna do? Besides, can you really afford to wait that long? Better question, will that beautiful and sweet fiancé of yours?

Ira: Oh, you're following me, you sick motherfucker?

Counter Guy: What do you want?

Bobby: Uh, two Recessions, and what juice are you having? Oh, too soon? Couple Cokes.

Ira: Bobby, I'm not some sucker who's just gonna play along with whatever game you got running. I'm taking you to court, guns up. I'm gonna win a fat judgment, and then, because I got nothing else, thanks to you, I'm gonna make it my sole purpose in life to stick to you like Lester Hayes until you've paid it willingly just to get me to go away. So you take your hot dogs and shove 'em up your ass, lengthwise.

Bobby: That's not very open-minded of you, Ira. You should be more open-minded!
