  • Michael (to Sara): I came here to tell you something. I'm getting my brother out of here... tonight. And I need your help.
  • Governor Tancredi: What was it that your mother always used to say? It's nice to be invited to the dance even though you don't have right shoes.
Sara Tancredi: Yeah, she also used to say that your father is a lying bastard but I figured that it was just the booze talking.
  • Governor Tancredi (to Sara): I will not discuss morality with an addict and a thief.
