Lansky: Sounds like it would be, right? Because Jewish people are such passive, non-violent pussies.
Capone: They used to be tougher, I guess.
Lansky: Yeah, they used to play professional sports and fight in wars and stuff. I mean, look at Israel. Those guys used to kick the shit out of the countries around them.
Capone: But now…
Lansky: Yeah, now they’re just accountants and lawyers.
Capone: And run the media.
Capone: I’m Italian and was in the real mafia. Italians are allowed to be in it, but other people are not. I did most of my mobster work in Chicago.
Lansky: The Valentine’s Day Massacre was something you did.
Capone: Yes, I told people to kill a lot of my enemies all at once and then they did.
Lansky: Still though, a Jew who’s also a badass gangster. Weird.
Capone: Definitely makes no sense. Did you refuse to kill on the Sabbath?
Lansky: Yes, we always took the Sabbath off from killing. You know, because of Moses and the Torah and so forth.
