               FADE IN:

               JUNE 11, 1970S  QUEENS, NEW YORK. THE SUITE - NIGHT

               A smoky, overdecorated cocktail lounge and nightclub on 
               Queens Boulevard. Sergio Franchi is in full voice on the 
               jukebox.  It is after midnight.  It has bean a long night.. 
               Balloons and empty glasses litter the place.  BILLY BATTS, 
               a 50-year-old hood in an out-of-date suit, court at the 
               bar. WE SEE a younger, more sharply-dressed HOOD walk in 
               with a BEEHIVE GIRLFRIEND and hug BATTS.

                                     HOOD
                         Billy. You look beautiful. Welcome 
                         home.

                                     BAITS
                              (laughing and turning 
                              to the bartender)
                         What are you having? Give 'em what 
                         they're drinking.

               WE SEE FOUR OTHER MEN, including HENRY HILL and JIMMY BURKE, 
               standing near BILLY BATTS at the bar, raise their glasses 
               in salute. TOMMY DESIMONE and ANOTHER BEEHIVE BLONDE enter. 
               BILLY BATTS looks up and sees TOMMY.

                                     BILLY
                         Hey, look at him. Tommy. You grew 
                         up.

                                     TOMMY
                              (preening a little)
                         Billy, how are you?

                                     BILLY
                              (smiling broadly at 
                              Tommy and the girl)
                         Son of a bitch. Get over here.

               TOMMY walks over and BILLY, too aggressively, grabs TOMMY 
               around the neck.  TOMMY doesn't like it.

                                     TOMMY
                              (forcing a laugh)
                         Hey, Billy. Watch the suit.

                                     BILLY
                              (squeezing Tommy's 
                              cheek, a little 
                              too hard)
                         Listen to him.  "Watch the suit," 
                         he says.  A little pisser I've 
                         known all my life.  Hey, Tommy, 
                         don't go get too big.

                                     TOMMY
                         ♠Don't go busting my balls. Okay?♠
