Report from Table 23

Winston's Restaurant, as featured in Death Wish V: The Face of Death (1994)
Entering the home stretch I see mention of the Mafia in relation to Ezio Palangio and his violent death at the hands of the Black Brigade.

"Schmit says one of the principles that keeps the Mafia strong is revenge, an eye for an eye."

So, not let sleeping dogs lie. Good to know.

I sense a new element being added to the mix. Perhaps something to bring the level of violence to what Eaton's president and book critic Fred Eaton considers "appropriate".

  1. Him: I don't want to toot my own horn, baby, but you're sitting with the guy who told the Canadian Bank of Commerce to buy Citibank.

    Her: A bank buying another bank! Where do you come up with these things!

    Him: I'm an idea man, baby. I'm not just outside the box... I blew the box to hell.

    Her: Wait, I'm getting a total attack of deja vu. Didn't you once tell an oil company to buy another oil company?

    Him: No, that wasn't me.

    Her: I'm sure it was. Petro Canada and Exxon.

    Him (curt) No.

    Her: Are you sure?

    (awkward silence)

    I want to live in this photograph and I regret every life choice that took me down another path.
