The one thing which has always haunted me about this film...


... is when Paulie gets Rocky's flash car, for literally no reason at all,he chucks away the snow cone he was clearly enjoying hugely just seconds before!

Why did he do this? He just got the flash car. He already had the snow cone. He just needed to put the two together and biff bash bosh he's hit one of life's sweet highs.

But no. He just tosses it. Like it meant nothing.

Haunting.

he didn't want to get the car dirty?

Yeah, but Paulie clearly isn't a character overly concerned with cleanliness...

haha yeah being a bit of a nitpicker I noticed that, actually to me it was about him being a litter bug but all the same he couldn't wait another minute or so and finish the damm thing. was quite odd.

That annoyed me as well. Waste of a perfectly good snow cone, he had a one of life's great combos as you said, and he didn't even bother to throw it in a trash basket the lazy bastard!

Motown, get your Detroit jukebox jheri curl ass in this chicken sh!t chop-chop, ASAFP!

I agree with the OP on this.

Very odd behaviour by the usually high stable Paulie Pennino...
