March 5, 2020


( theme music playing )( music playing )Man:
COME ON, YOU GOTTA HELP ME
MOVE THESE BARRELS.
HERE WE GO.
– Jimmy: YOU CAN BARELY
MOVE IN HERE.
Mickey:
YOU GOT YOUR FRIENDS AT THE
COAST GUARD TO THANK FOR THAT.
THREE SHIPS’ WORTH
OF BOOZE– THE NINA, THE PINTA
AND THE CANADIAN CLUB. Jimmy:
BILL McCOY’S PROBABLY
STILL CRYING HIS EYES OUT. Mickey:
ON NUCKY THOMPSON’S
SHOULDER. WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOU
AND NUCKY ANYWAY? I GUESS THAT’S BETWEEN
ME AND NUCKY, ISN’T IT? WE NEED
MORE SPACE, MICKEY. AIN’T AN EMPTY GARAGE
IN 10 MILES. THEN TRY 11.
PAY CASH. END OF NEXT SUMMER
WE’LL BE THE BIGGEST
DISTRIBUTORS IN THE NORTHEAST. FROM THE TINY ACORN GROWS THE MIGHTY ELK. IF YOU HAD A BRAIN, – YOU’D BE DANGEROUS.
– ( giggles ) Man:
YO, BE CAREFUL
WITH THAT.( music continues )DON’T LIKE NOT KNOWING
WHAT’S GOING ON. Gillian:
THAT’S WHAT
MAKES IT EXCITING.
( phonograph playing music ) WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?“THE PIPES OF PAN.”GODDAMN CAT
IN A RAIN BARREL. OPEN YOUR EYES, IF THOU DAREST. ( chuckles )
AIN’T YOU THE HUMDINGER? SILENCE, MORTAL.
I AM DIANA, DAUGHTER OF JUPITER. AND NO MAN MAY LOOK
UPON MY NAKEDNESS AS I BATHE. THIS IS ONE OF YOUR
LITTLE PERFORMANCES. YOU SHOULD
HAVE COME, DEAR, AT LEAST ONCE. I NEVER LIKED
THE IDEA OF YOU PARADING AROUND
IN FRONT OF OTHER MEN. YOU COULD HAVE
MARRIED ME. I HAD A CITY TO RUN. I UNDERSTAND. I ALWAYS HAVE. BUT I DID HAVE
A BOY TO RAISE. WE’RE ALL HERE NOW,
AREN’T WE? HE HAS SO MUCH
TO LEARN FROM YOU. I CAN’T TELL YOU
WHAT IT MEANS TO US, AFTER ALL THIS TIME. AND YOU’RE GOING
TO TAKE CARE OF HIM, AREN’T YOU? COME HERE
WITH THAT MOUTH. DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED
TO THE SHEPHERD WHO SPIED ON
THE VIRGINAL DIANA? SHE TURNED HIM
INTO A STAG. HE TRIED TO RUN AWAY,BUT HIS OWN HOUNDSTORE HIM TO PIECES. GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE. PREPARE FOR
THE RIGHTEOUS PUNISHMENT OF THE GODS. LOUIS? LOUIS! – ( stammering )
– LOUIS! LOUIS!( Emily reciting )
WHAT DOES THE BEE DO?
BRING HOME HONEY.
WHAT DOES THE FATHER DO?
BRING HOME MONEY. WHAT DOES THE MOTHER DO?
LAY OUT THE MONEY. WHAT DO CHILDREN DO?
EAT UP THE HONEY! LOVELY, DEAR. – VERY NICE.
– GOOD MORNING. – MUNCHKINS.
– Children: GOOD MORNING,
UNCLE NUCKY. – COULD YOU NOT SLEEP?
– I HAVE A BUSY DAY. WILL YOU
BE BREAKFASTING,
MR. THOMPSON? I WILL NOT.
NOR WILL I BE DINNERING. IT’S ED BADER’S
BIRTHDAY. DID I NOT MENTION THAT? –( knocks )
– I TAKE IT THERE
WILL BE A PARTY?
OH, SOMETHING SMALL,
MAKE HIM FEEL IMPORTANT. A MEAL IN HIS HONOR
MAYBE. WELL, BE SURE NOT
TO OVERINDULGE. MR. SLEATER. GOOD DAY, EVERYONE. TOP O’ THE MORNIN’. ISN’T THAT WHAT
YOUR PEOPLE SAY? AND WE ALSO FIX SHOES
IF YOU LEAVE THEM OUTSIDE
YOUR DOOR. ( laughing ) – SURELY IT ISN’T THAT FUNNY.
– YES MA’AM. MR. SLEATER WILL BE
DRIVING ME NOW. IT’S ALL I CAN DO
TO STICK TO THE CORRECT
SIDE OF THE ROAD. – Nucky: I’LL BE RIGHT OUT.
– SIR, MA’AM. KATY. PLEASE ASK LILIAN TO GET
THE CHILDREN DRESSED AND TO DRILL TEDDY
IN HIS CATECHISM. COME, DEARS. A BIT CHEEKY, ISN’T HE? – WHAT’S THAT MEAN AGAIN?
– IMPERTINENT. HE’S SERVING A PURPOSE. AND MAY I ASK
WHAT THAT IS? YOU MAY,
AND I MAY NOT ANSWER. THE WEEKLY EXPENSES. THERE’S A LITTLE EXTRA
FOR THE STAFF. – WHAT FOR?
– TO LET THEM KNOW
THEY’RE APPRECIATED. THIS IS NO TIME TO BE
FRIVOLOUS WITH MONEY. IT’S $2 EXTRA
APIECE. IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE TO US,
BUT TO THEM IT’S A WINDFALL. YOU DO REALIZE
THEY STEAL FROM US.
IT’S WHAT SERVANTS DO. IT’S WHAT EVERYONE DOES.
AND WE PRETEND NOT TO KNOW
AND LIFE GOES ON. NO ONE GAVE ME A BONUS
WHEN I WAS IN SERVICE. ALL THE MORE REASON
TO BE GENEROUS NOW. I’M NEARLY OUT
OF SHAVING SOAP. ANY MORE
OF THEM EGGS? YOU’VE HAD NEARLY HALF
A DOZEN ALREADY, ALBERT. TELL THEM CHICKENS
TO WORK OVERTIME. – DADDY!
– THERE’S MY SWEET PEA. – WHEN DID YOU GET HOME?
– LAST NIGHT, PAST YOUR BEDTIME.
CREPT IN LIKE THE SANDMAN. WILL YOU CHECK
MY HOMEWORK? ( snorts )
YOU’RE ASKING DADDY? YOUR MAMA’LL
DO THAT FOR YOU. YOUR BROTHER KNOW
I’M TOO STRICT. – IF YOU SAY SO.
– STOP TOYING WITH YOUR FATHER. HE KNOW WHO BRING HOME
THE BACON. HOW MY PRINCESS DOIN’? DID YOU
ASK HIM, MOTHER?ASK ME WHAT?MAMA INVITED SAMUEL
OVER FOR DINNER
TOMORROW NIGHT. DID SHE NOW? WE DID DISCUSS THIS.
IF A YOUNG LADY IS
BEING COURTED, IT NEEDS TO BE
IN A RESPECTABLE MANNER. HE’S PLANNING
TO STUDY MEDICINE. HMPH. AN EDUCATED BUCK. WELL, I SUPPOSE
IT’D BE ALL RIGHT. DINNER
WITH ALL THE FIXINGS. I BEEN CRAVING
HOPPIN’ JOHN SINCE
THE MOON WAS BLUE. ( hammering )( knocks )RICHARD.GOOD MORNING.
I’M HERE FOR JIMMY.
I THOUGHT
HE WAS WITH YOU. HIS MOTHER CALLED
LATE LAST NIGHT. HE LEFT
AND I ASSUMED… WAS EVERYTHING
ALL RIGHT? HE DOESN’T
TELL ME ANYTHING. THIS BUSINESS
WITH NUCKY– I SAW HIM ON THE BOARDWALK.
HE WOULDN’T EVEN LOOK AT ME. MMM, VERY BOLD. MY FEEBLE ATTEMPT
AT EXPRESSIONISM. THERE WAS AN ARTIST
I SAW IN PARIS. HE DOES CITYSCAPES– VERY STARK,
NO PEOPLE. DE CHIRICO. I DON’T KNOW. HE ALSO DID FIGURES
WHO LOOK LIKE MANNEQUINS. HAVE YOU EVER POSED
FOR AN ARTIST? NO. SORRY. I DIDN’T MEAN
TO EMBARRASS YOU. I USED TO DRAW
WHEN I WAS A CHILD. IT WAS VERY RELAXING. IT CAN BE. IT CAN ALSO
BE MADDENING. IT TOOK ME YEARS TO BE
ABLE TO DRAW HANDS. IT’S APOPLEXY–
A STROKE. HIS ENTIRE RIGHT SIDE
IS PARALYZED. HE CAN EAT,
BUT SO FAR HE’S BEEN
UNABLE TO SPEAK. WAS HE AGITATED?
OVEREXCITED IN ANY WAY? AS I SAID, I FOUND HIM
LIKE THIS. – SHOULDN’T HE BE
IN A HOSPITAL?
– NO. NO ONE
CAN CARE FOR HIM
LIKE HIS FAMILY. COMMODORE.WHAT DO YOU WANT
TO SAY?
C– COCK. COCK! YEAH, I– I, UH– – COCKFUCK!
– THAT’S ENOUGH FOR NOW. HE NEEDS TO REST. JESUS CHRIST,
HE’S A FUCKING VEGETABLE! KEEP YOUR VOICE
DOWN, PLEASE. – WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO NOW?
– HE’S GOING TO BE FINE, DEAR. – NOT WHAT DR. SURRAN SAYS.
– WITHOUT HIM RUNNING THINGS,
HIS POLITICAL CONNECTIONS– STOP IT RIGHT NOW!
THE BOTH OF YOU! NOW YOU LISTEN TO ME. I DIDN’T SPEND MY LIFE
GETTING GROPED BY
A BUNCH OF DRUNKS TO WIND UP
IN A GODDAMN POORHOUSE. – I’VE GOT EIGHT KIDS, GILLIAN.
– JIMMY AND I ARE WELL
AWARE OF THAT. “JIMMY AND YOU.”
THAT’S EXACTLY–
THE TWO OF YOU AND– –HIM?!
NONE OF THAT’S NORMAL.
IT NEVER WAS. IT’S NORMAL TO ME AND TO MY SON
AND HIS FATHER. AND IT SUITED YOU, DIDN’T IT?
UP TILL THIS MORNING.UP TILL THIS MORNING
THE MAN WITH THE CLOUT
WASN’T DROOLING
INTO HIS PAJAMAS. YOU HAVE
A CRUEL STREAK, ELI. THAT’S NEVER
AN ATTRACTIVE QUALITY. – HE CAN’T EVEN TALK.
– LOUIS IS UNWELL. HE’S GOING TO RECOVER. YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN.
IT’S ALL GOING TO WORK OUT. –HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW?
– BECAUSE JIMMY WILL HANDLE I.
WE’RE IN FOR 70 GRAND
TO HIS CRONIES. THEY’LL GET PAID BACK
WHEN WE UNLOAD THE BOOZE. – WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
– THE TOWN’S FLUSH, ELI. THEN SELL IT OUT OF TOWN–
NEW YORK, PHILADELPHIA. YOU WANNA GIVE ME
NAMES AND ADDRESSES OR SHOULD I JUST
GO DOOR TO DOOR? WHY ASK ME? YOU BOTH GOT IT
ALL WORKED OUT, RIGHT? –( door slams )
– MAYBE THIS WASN’T
THE BEST IDEA,
LETTING ELI
SEE HIM LIKE THAT. I’M SORRY IF I
SEEMED HEATED, BABY. IT’S A DIFFICULT TIME
FOR BOTH OF US. I WANT ICE CREAM! ALCOHOL AND CAKE.
CALL IT FOR 9:00 SO NOBODY’S EXPECTING
A FULL DINNER. Eddie:
HORS D’OEUVRES ONLY.
DANCING GIRLS? WOULDN’T BE MUCH
OF A PARTY OTHERWISE,
WOULD IT? – Nucky: FINE,
THEN YOU HANDLE THAT.
– HOW OLD IS MAYOR BADER? THE FUCK DO I KNOW?
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? – THE CANDLES FOR THE CAKE.
– DON’T MAKE A PRODUCTION
OUT OF IT. Eddie:
HE IS THE MAYOR
OF ATLANTIC CITY. AND NOT
THE PRINCE OF WALES. TELL THEM TO SEND UP
SOME EGGS FLORENTINE. – AND GET ME ARNOLD ROTHSTEIN
ON THE PHONE.
JA.ARNOLD? A NUCKY THOMPSON
ON THE TELEPHONE? I’LL TAKE IT
IN HERE, DARLING. HOW’S OUR STOMACH? IT’S STILL
A LITTLE TENTATIVE. SO MUCH APPLE BREAD. IT HAS A BINDING EFFECT. IS THAT THE BEST THING
RIGHT NOW? SOUND ELIMINATION IS
THE BASIS OF GOOD HEALTH. ( clears throat ) “MR. THOMPSON.” MR. THOMPSON, TO WHAT
DO I OWE THE PLEASURE? A CHANGE IN MY CIRCUMSTANCES,
AS I’M SURE YOU’VE
ALREADY HEARD.And are we discussing
a problem or a proposition?
THAT DEPENDS WHICH SIDE
OF THE PHONE YOU’RE ON. I NEED A PORT

FOR HOPPIN’ JOHN.THERE’S DUCK…PEAS, CARROTS,
FRESH-BAKED BISCUITS. I MADE
CHOCOLATE PUDDING
FOR DESSERT. – WE’D LIKE TO THANK YOU
FOR THE GIFTS–
– I ASKED A QUESTION. ALBERT, PLEASE. SHE MADE THAT PUDDING
ALL BY HERSELF. – THAT’S VERY NICE.
– WHERE THE DAMN HOPPIN’ JOHN? ALBERT, YOU KNOW THAT’S NOT
PROPER FOOD FOR A GUEST. NOW LET’S ALLOW
SAMUEL TO FINISH. – LORD, WE COME TOGETH–
– WELL, MAYBE OUR GUEST
WOULD’VE LIKED SOME. ( chuckles )
WELL, I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED
THAT TYPE OF FOOD, SIR. WHAT TYPE OF FOOD? UH, MY GRANDMA
WOULD MAKE IT. I SAY SOMETHING
FUNNY, SON? – BEG YOUR PARDON?
– YOU LAUGHING. – WHAT THE JOKE?
– HOPPIN’ JOHN, ALBERT. YOU’RE BEING
RIDICULOUS. I BEEN EATIN’
RICE AND BEANS
ALL MY LIFE. TELL ME IT AIN’T
GOOD ENOUGH. YOU’LL HAVE TO FORGIVE
MY HUSBAND’S COUNTRY WAYS. I COMPLETELY
UNDERSTAND, MA’AM. THIS IS MY HOUSE! AND MY COUNTRY WAYS
PUT THE FOOD ON THIS
GODDAMN TABLE. ALBERT! YOU’RE DRUNK. ( sniffles ) SIR, I APOLOGIZE. – I’LL LEAVE–
– YOU STAY RIGHT
WHERE YOU ARE, SON. RIGHT THERE… INSIDE THE HOUSE. PRETTY CLEAR WHO
THE FIELD NIGGER IS.( door closes )ALMOST FINISHED. HMM. THIS IS
WHAT I LOOK LIKE? YES. HMM, IS IT EXPENSIVE? – THE DRAWING?
– I CAN PAY FOR IT. NO.
NO, I– IT’S YOURS,
IF YOU WANT IT. ANGE?ANGE, ARE YOU HOME?IN HERE. – WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
– I WAS SKETCHING RICHARD. I’LL PUT HIM TO BED. THANK YOU. HE’S TUCKERED OUT. WE RODE THE FERRIS WHEEL
AFTER MY MOTHER’S. TOMORROW– WE’RE GONNA NEED
TO GO TO PHILLY FOR THAT DELIVERY. OKAY. GOOD NIGHT. HE SAT FOR YOU? IS THAT
SO SURPRISING? I DON’T KNOW. I’M NEVER SURE
WHAT’S GOING ON
INSIDE HIM. Nucky:
I GOTTA HAND IT TO ICKY.
THIS WAS A GREAT IDEA.
THE WHOLE THING
WAS A SETUP.
I MEAN, FLEMING
HELPED TOO OF COURSE.
IT WAS
A MEANS TO AN END. BUT SURELY NOTHING
TO BE PROUD OF. IT’S NOT PRIDE,
IT’S HAPPINESS. I VIOLATED
THE MANN ACT. IT PROHIBITS THE INTERSTATE
TRANSPORTATION OF FEMALES FOR IMMORAL PURPOSES. IT’S A FEDERAL LAW,
WHICH MEANS THE ENTIRE ELECTION CASE CAN BE ROLLED
INTO A FEDERAL INDICTMENT. – SO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
CAN HELP?
– EXACTLY. THIS IS HOW THINGS
WORK, MARGARET.

BUT RAN BY A FELLA
NAMED MICKEY DOYLE. VAN ALDEN
ARRESTED HIM LAST YEAR
FOR BOOTLEGGING. – THIS IS THE PLACE?
– THIS IS IT. IT LOOKS DESERTED. ( inhales )
YOU DON’T SMELL THAT? THERE’S A STILL
IN THERE. I DON’T SEE
THE POINT OF THIS. WE’RE PROHIS, STAN. WE’RE GOING TO MAKE
AN ARREST. BUT IF IT IS WHAT YOU THINK
IT IS, VAN ALDEN WILL
HAVE OUR HEADS. THEN WE’LL
ARREST HIM TOO. GO CHECK AROUND BACK. ( screaming ) ( screaming continues ) – OH. OH GOD.
– ( whimpers ) ( groans ) ( whimpering continues )( piano playing )( laughter ) –( waves crashing )
– ( scraping )
THAT’S IT,
ONE LAST BITE. – ( grunting )
– LOUIS DEAR. YOU NEED NOURISHMENT. DO YOU REMEMBER
WHEN WE MET? I’LL NEVER FORGET
YOUR SMILE. JIMMY SOMETIMES, HE HAS IT. I LOOK AT HIM
AND I SEE YOU. THAT FIRST NIGHT, HOW YOU PLIED ME
WITH WINE… WHY I’D NEVER FELT
SUCH A SENSATION. WE WERE DOWNSTAIRS. AND I’D FALLEN ASLEEP
ON THE DIVAN. YOU CARRIED
ME TO THE BEDROOM, WENT TO SAY GOOD NIGHT
TO YOUR GUESTS. AND I LAY THERE IN BED… DREAMING OF THE WAVES. I’D BEEN ON THE BEACH
THAT DAY. SUDDENLY I FELT A CRUSHING FEELING, I COULDN’T BREATHE. I OPENED MY EYES
TO FIND YOU ATOP ME… YOUR BREATH SMELLING OF WHISKEY
AND TOBACCO… ONE HAND COVERING
MY MOUTH… AND THE OTHER
GROPING AT ME. DO YOU REMEMBER THAT? ( mumbling ) STILL… SOMETIMES WHEN I SLEEP, IT WAKES ME WITH A START. DO YOU REMEMBER
THAT NIGHT? I– ( mumbling ) I ASKED YOU A QUESTION.♪ COME WHERE MY LOVE
