Hyman Roth (Lee Strasberg) Florida Mobster
"real partnership with the government" (ppp)

R: These are wonderful things that we've achieved in Havana ... and there's no limit to where we can go from here ... this kind of government knows how to help business ... to encourage it ... the hotels here are bigger and swankier than any of the other joints we put up in Vegas ... and we can thank our friends in the Cuban government ... which has put up half of the cash with the teamsters on a dollar for dollar basis ... has relaxed restrictions on imports ... what I am saying is ... that we have now what we have always needed ... real partnership with the government. [a public-private partnership; fascism]

Enemy of the State 1998
Thomas Brian Reynolds (Jon Voight)
Robert Clayton Dean (Will Smith)

T: ... you know what i've seen? ... i've seen killers walk free because the eye-witness was an alcoholic ... i've seen sex offenders that couldn't be touched because the victum was a call girl ... - credibility - ... it's the only currency that means anything on this playing field ... Dean's got the tape and he's going to come out with it ... and when he does, i want his credibility ... i want people to know that he is lying before they hear what he says.
[xx]: ... well, we could take his wife and kid ... he'd give it up for them.
T: ... we'd have the police and the FBI all over this in 24 hours ... put taps on his 20 most frequently called numbers ... and let's get into his life ... the union situation has mob written all over it ... and he's definitely vulnerable on rachel banks ... i want to know about his wife; i want to know about his parents; i want to know about his gambling problems, his urine samples, his porno rentals ... i want to use every means possible to get what we need ... because this little son-of-a-bitch is not going to be the final chapter of my life.

Senator Roark (Powers Boothe) [Frank Miller's Sin City; TT8 CH20]: ...
"lying big"

"power don't come from a badge or a gun ... power comes from lying ... lying big and getting the whole damn world to play along with you ... once you got everybody agreeing with what they know in their hearts ain't true ... you got'em by the balls."

Charlie Bartolucci (Christopher Walken); [Suicide Kings 1998]:
"word on the street"

"That phone call I got, it comes from outside high walls and fancy gates. It comes from a place you know about maybe from the movies. Where I come from out there, what everybody out there knows: everybody lies. Cops lie; newspapers lie; your parents lie. The one thing you can count on: word on the street; that's solid."
