I've got all 6 seasons on DVD along with Goodfellas (although DeNiro has turned into a POS), Casino and my all time favorite, The Godfather.

One of my fav scenes:

With credentials like that, it's fair to say GTV has a recognized expert on Italian organized crime. ;-) We could be swapping scenes the whole evening. Now that I think of it, that scene foreshadows Fredo's ultimate betrayal in the sequel.

Nowadays even “mobsters” are writing tell all books?
What's this world coming to?

Ever hear of Omerta, Tony?

He’s trying to look the part (in order to sell his book) and may deceive an untrained eye with his 2 pinky rings, gold chain and mandatory cigar (unlit) in hand. Having had a tad of experience in identifying mobsters, this obese pezzo di merda in his black ill fitting …More

Ever hear of Omerta, Tony?

He’s trying to look the part (in order to sell his book) and may deceive an untrained eye with his 2 pinky rings, gold chain and mandatory cigar (unlit) in hand. Having had a tad of experience in identifying mobsters, this obese pezzo di merda in his black ill fitting suit, black recliner, cheap chandelier (brass not gold) in the background and overall cheap looking apartment fails.

Tony says: “I stood in the hallway outside the pope’s quarters when the tea was served,” he writes, adding that the drug did its job so well that their victim wouldn’t have stirred “even if there had been an earthquake,” he recounts. “I’d done a lot of things in my time, but I didn’t want to be there in the room when they killed the pope. I knew that would buy me a one-way ticket to hell.”

"one-way ticket to hell.”

Come on, Tony. That's what confession is for. Bada boom, bada bing and your back on the fast track to heaven and all the cannolis you can eat.
