Quotes from Danny Aiello's Characters

    1. Louis: If you're afraid of dying, and you're holdin' on, you'll see devils tearin' your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freein' you from the world. It all depends on how you look at it.
    From Jacob's Ladder. Submitted by Jesus T (13 months ago)
    1. Rocco: This is a coincidence. I meet nobody from the old neighbourhood in years. I finally do, and I gotta kill her.
