why do you wanna write me a check for $500? bobby, because it's christmas! and i've always said a man can never be too long on a little pocket change come the holidays. of course, only $350 of that's for you, the other $150 being sorely needed by your old man, if you got the spare cash. on account of that being an out-of-state check, i figured you'd have a lot easier time running it through your bank than i would with mine. damn, boy, if you ain't getting handsomer every year! and they got nerve enough to tell me ays did favor your mama in that regard. look, i gotta go. but now... come punch-out time, i want you to call me at the kenmore hotel and let your old man treat you to some christmas dinner! i don't know. i mean, i got -- don't give me no ifs, ands, buts, or whatsoevers! you call me, boy! call me! and, bobby...
what do you mean, you're not gonna call him? it's christmas eve, and he's your old man! i told you, renko, he's nothing. he never acted like my father. he's not family. he's nothing. just how old were you when he left? about 6, i guess -- 4 kids, a wife... and he never so much as sent us a postcard till 6 months later. every year it's the same damn thing -- whenever he needs a little traveling money or whenever the cards or the horses bring him back to town. i never had the nerve to tell him what i thought of him. damn, why didn't he just leave me alone! that's a gift! that's $500! it's bogus, renko.
just eat! [ indistinct conversations ] i'll kick myself till the day i die for not making things right with my daddy before he passed on. well, i don't have anything to work out, renko, so let's just drop it, all right? take my advice, bobby hill. you get straight with that man. you've got to get straight. he's the only daddy you got.

hey, have a good one yourself. you like that, man? i don't believe this. first he does a number on me, then he says he'll be at the hotel, then he leaves me with the bill and goes out the back door! you've got to admire the criminal mastermind, bobby. so, are we gonna go get him? no! are you gonna let it drop just like this? are you gonna let it drop?! ...last seen headed northbound. 2202 responding. over. come on, renko.

ou better check the scoreboard before you start getting too righteous with me, because i have covered your sorry butt for more times than i can count -- through times when you weren't even fit for a bench in the detox ward! and now the one time that i need a little understanding, you -- damn it, man! i asked you to turn the damn thing off!! hey, what are you doing?! whoa! hey, tomorrow -- i'll get you one twice as big. uhhhh!

i want to deal with it... ...but i-i just don't know how, man. all right. there is a counselor, name of brennan, out of midtown. he's helped a lot of guys through this sort of thing. go see him, will you? you got a lot of friends in this department, neal. try to lean on us now and then, will you? st. valentine's day massacre, yom kippur war, christmas eve rampage on the hill -- what's it all about, bobby -- the holiday motif?
