Scene 17

Tommy's Worst Day

  • Henry and Jimmy eat breakfast in a diner. Tommy is getting made today, and Jimmy is super excited. Since he and Henry are half-Irish, they can never be made. To Jimmy, Tommy being made is like he and Henry being made, too.
  • At his mom's house, Tommy says goodbye to his mother and hops in a waiting car. He's wearing a sharp suit. She thinks he looks handsome.
  • Tommy's ride pulls into the garage of a fancy-pants house.
  • Back at the diner, Jimmy goes outside to the payphone.
  • Tommy has walked into a room in the house. Before he can finish saying, "Oh NOES!" he gets whacked.
  • Jimmy finds out about Tommy's murder on the phone. He smashes the handset into the phone and starts bawling.
  • Henry comes out of the diner, and Jimmy gives him the bad news. It was revenge for Billy Batts. There is nothing they can do about it.
