On the Waterfront

How goes?
He's up on the roof.
The pigeon?
Yeah, it worked.
I think somebody fell off the roof.
He thought he'd sing
to the Crime Commission. He won't.

I thought they'd talk to him.
That's the idea.
I thought they'd talk to him
and get him to dummy up.

Maybe he gave them an argument.
I figured the worst they was gonna do
was lean on him a little bit.

Maybe he gave them an argument.
He's been giving Johnny the Boss
a lot of arguments lately.

He wasn't a bad kid, that Joey.
A canary.
Maybe he could sing, but he couldn't fly.
Come on, I'll buy you a drink.
I'll be in there later and....
Father Barry is here.
Same thing happened to my Andy
five years ago.

-You're the boy's father?
-That's right.

Looks like he fell off the roof,
or maybe he was pushed.

-Any ideas?

He was the only longshoreman that had
the guts to talk to the crime investigators.

-Who asked you?
-Everybody knows that.

Shut up.
-lf he took my advice he wouldn't be--
-Everyone knows that.

I said, ''Shut up!''
I know how you feel about cops,
but if you give me...

...some leads I could--
I kept telling him, ''Don't say nothing.
''Keep quiet, you'll live longer.''
I've been on the docks all my life,
boy, and there's one thing I learned.

You don't ask no questions,
you don't answer no questions...

...unless you want to wind up like that.
