Gangs of New York

May I present...
Alright, Mr Tweed, you back an
Irishman for sheriff...

The Schermerhorns hardly require
an introduction from you, Jack.

...of the city and county of
New York...

Mrs. Schermerhorn and her

...and we'll get him elected.
The gentleman of course is.....
I love the Irish, son...
Mr. Greely. The famous

..but higher than alderman you
shall never climb.

It's a pleasure and an
honour, sir.

Why not?
For one thing, no man living can
consolidate the Irish vote.

Of the Tribune.
I am William Cutting.
I can!
And for another, I mean no

How do you do, Mr. Cutting?
:52:17 one's yet found an Irish

...for sheriff worth voting for.
As of this moment,
extremely well.

How do you do?
Orange blossom. Delicious!
Mr. Cutting is...
What a peach! You had a fine
carreer on the stage.

:52:30 of the Five Points local...
Got me looking as sober as me own

Please to meet you, sir.
Mr. Greely!
He was a great man, I'm sure.
Pleased to meet you,
Mr. Cutting.

The Five Points welcomes you..
He was a drunken bastard.
:52:36 these streets...
..and you shall pas in

Can I say what I want?
I'll see to their safety.
Thank you, Bill.
That's why I wanted you.
This way.
Our elected representatives are a
gang of thieves!

Good day lads.
Criminals who brag
a dote show.

Who swear to better our lot...
He knows who I am!
Inderdeed, sir. You are well
known in these parts.

...while dipping their hands deep
into our pockets.

I stand shoulder to shoulder with
community leaders like Bill Cutting...

I find that strangely flattering.
Never did like crushers.
....against any, an all in roads in
our democracy.

Well draw it mild, son.
Happy Jack don't fill his lungs
without me telling him to.

I'll see to it, that no one
takes away...

... what you earned by pluck and application.
To invading hordes of Hibernians.
Go to the polls and put
your mark...

... next to the name Walter McGinn.
Against the potatoes weeders, like
them over there...

...thieving our jobs.
Do you think my watch would be
safe in that lamp post, Bill?

Why should so many Irish die down

...when the first war to win...
:53:20 not down in Dixie, but
right here...

Why don't you hang it
up there and see?

:53:22 these streets!
Who's the finest streetfighter in
the Five Points?

Some day.
Some day is right.
That's right and let the whole
damn city hear it!

Is this the new lad?
That man was right born for this.
just another bastard I folded
in the warmth of my embrace.

He's killed 44 men and laid low a
couple of hundred more.

Is that right?
I should have run him for mayor!
Just wanted to see your face,

Alright, line 'm up.
No harm intended.
It's election day!
Come on, you bastard. We need
your vote.

Bastard? I fought for you
