In Donnie Brasco (1997), the Lefty gang came back to New York by plane and gathered together to discuss their illegal business, i.e. shakedowns and hijackings:

Sonny Black: What do you got, Nicky?

Nicky: I got a guy boosted 30 tickets to Chaka Khan at the Garden.

Sonny Black: What about Florida?

Nicky: I thought we weren't supposed to talk about Florida.

Why aren't they supposed to talk about Florida?

1 Answer 1


Because Florida was a complete failure for the gang. It was supposed to bring them massive profits and increase their status in the organization, instead it was a bust and a complete embarrassment.
