NotesEdit

  • When Helen Donnelly (Kate Mulgrew) goes to the hospital and dismisses Kimmy from Sean's bedside, Kim is reading a paperback edition of "All Souls: A Family Story From Southie". The book is a memoir about growing up in a large Irish-Catholic family in a working class neighborhood in South Boston, and his brothers involvement with Irish mob in Southie at the time. The mother in the book is also named Helen.


QuotesEdit

Joey Ice Cream: I thought you said you waited here?

Kevin Donnelly: No I applied. The bastards wouldn't hire me because of my shadey employment history.


Kevin Donnelly: [Kevin and Joey sneak into a restaurant and find some Kosher wine] Crap! All we got here is Jew wine. We allowed to drink this stuff?

Joey Ice Cream: Who wouldn't allow you, Kevin?

Kevin Donnelly: I don't know. It's unholy or something.

Joey Ice Cream: It's fine!

Kevin Donnelly: I mean it's alcohol too, right?

Joey Ice Cream: Yeah, only it's Rabbi approved alcohol.


Jenny Reilly: You're throwing Huey's wake?

Tommy Donnelly: Yeah.

Jenny Reilly: Please tell me you know how wrong that is.


Joey Ice Cream: This is crazy. Do we have credit? Do we have money? Do we even have a way to transport the alcohol if it were to fall from the sky?

Kevin Donnelly: Remember when we were kids and had a contest to see who could shut up the longest?

Joey Ice Cream: No. Who won?


Tommy Donnelly: We're hosting Jimmy's wake tonight.

Kevin Donnelly: What?

Tommy Donnelly: Kate Farrell came by this morning. She wants the wake to be here.

Kevin Donnelly: [to Tommy] Can I remind you that we killed her husband?


Joey Ice Cream: [narrating voice over] There are a lot of guys in my neighborhood who would still be alive today if they'd just shut up and gone to bed the night before.
