Thanks for adding this clip to the youtube lineup. Hopefully it will make those who haven't seen this film take a chance on it. Some films just grab you. And you're not sure if that's ok or not. This is one of those films. This is the second of three scenes in the florist shop in the film. (The third scene in the florist shop is stuff of screen legends.) And it echoes the greatest moments in film crime drama of some guy getting squeezed by somebody with hands dirtier than his will ever be. Get your friends and even that special lady in your life to watch 'The Town' with you when your time is not compromised with daily obligations and then bookend 'The Town' with Michael Mann's 1981 film 'Thief' with James Caan and Martin Scorsese's 2006 film 'The Departed'

Ben Affleck has come a long way. He is a great director and acting has gotten a whole lot better since the days of Daredevil. The Town is one my favorite movies with a strong cast. Ben did a great job directing this movie and the acting was great.  actually think he is going to surprise the nay sayers and do real well as Batman. Looking forward to the Dawn of Justice.

the older cunts who have survived that kind of shit have many friends who will do the dirty work for them so the scene made no sense with afflecks character acting like a 12 year old.

I think he said "who don't know his glory days are behind him". Can't blame you for misunderstanding though, that Boston accent is fake as shit.

funny that in the Scene right before this, Ben uses the same line "let me ask you something, who the fuck do you think u are?" lol good movie tho

Why did these fuckers even deal with the florist? I know he's old school but come on, didn't look to me like he had much muscle, aside from that fat dude that put a flower reef on his girlfriends house. Please.

The more powerful Irish  figures would have pretty good connections with the I R A . ( IF  they gave lots and lots of money ) Irish Boston gangsters were shipping arms to Ireland ( and raising money for them ) There were some who might have ran a florist , but had a pretty effective Army that they ask favours from . That said -  They didnt give a fuck about supporting local gangsters in the USA . They were more interested in Judges , Politicians , Congressmen , and legitimate businessmen . If ANYONE  tells you they know an I R A  man , theyre lying . Even if theyre wearing an Aran jumper . The best thing for the I R A  in the USA  was naivete

He had connections and info for the next robbery., and as far as I know information is the most important thing

Affleck was a BOSS in this film. Who the fuck says he can't be Batman.

Can't wait for Affleck to direct a Batman movie dealing with mob bosses and criminals and the like!

Actually, theres several differen't accents. Depending on what part of the city your from. Charlestown, Dorchester, Southie, the North Shore... usually takes a native to recognize the differences. Most out of staters think we all sound like the Kennedy's.

I think it's more about blacks and latinos standing for street level crime on bigger levels, but whites who have built themselves up as though guys have it alot easier to put their hands in the authority's pockets and so on. If a black man is shot in Compton we will find out at once, even though the media wont bring it up. If a russian shots someone, brings him up home, cut him up and bleach him, we are not gonna find out.

There are a lot of confusing phrases in this movie. It's street talk, bank robbery lingo that I'm not familiar with. I think the writers tried to get too fancy as well IMO. Here's what I think: "Gave her a taste" - gave her drugs "put the hook into her" - a fishing metaphor to refer to drug addiction; when a fish is caught with a hook, it can't do anything; similarly, someone on drugs is addicted and helpless "doped up good and proper" - fergie's way of saying she did what he wanted her to do

his mom died, she didnt leave him, not in the sense of walked away and left him behind...she killed herself

You'd think that since Affleck was born and raised in Boston he'd do a better job with the Charlestown accent. But then most actors butcher Boston accents.

@Cannabis919 You outdid yourself here, I was wondering how long it would take for you to talk that bullshit about army's etc, one message, not long at all. Where was that army big powerful army on September 11? While you may see my country as little and inferior, your own is seen as the same by the real powerful countries like Germany and China. In fact America has huge debt, debt so big you cannot repay. And for such a small island, we built most of America, not bad at all eh ;)

I'm from Dorchester (Boston neighborhood right next to South Boston for those who don't know) and there are "homies" in Charlestown. Maybe not 10 20 yrs ago but there are now. That's like someone saying South Boston is still all white when you and I both know it's not.

@surferdudette19 best quote dude for sure!!!! so epic and deep and shit

You have to work on your punctuation. First of, I said white criminals are more intimidating somehow, so I slammed your back. Second, many of these blacks have been in for stealing televisions, selling weed, smoking crack or heroin. There are heavy criminals in bigger numbers to, but the statistics you bring up is unsolid, and we don't know how many numbers there are in the dark when it comes to irish and russian gangsters because they are better at cleaning up their traces.

That's a heavy scene there. If that aint being "had" by the balls, I don't know what is. SMH Excellent movie though.

The last four lines before that were just as rough in my opinion. This was hands down the most sinister and cruel monologue that I've heard Pete Postlethwaite deliver. Actually, it's interesting how he hinted that he'd castrate another character's nephew in "Usual Suspects", and now it turns out that he was being serious at the time.

@Steveskiez Conveniently didn't stop him from coming in at the end. Don't try and defend it, there's no conceivable reason you'd work for a man after he mockingly admitted to you that he deliberately got your mother hooked on drugs to keep your father working for him which lead to her suicide and his imprisonment. NO WAY. Just pretend to agree and come back an hour or two later blasting, or when the old fuck is sleeping, or ANYTHING.

Damn, Postlethwaite and Jeremy Renner were a croud stealer in this film. That is one fucked up last name XD

Bigger levels ??.. What's bigger than Banks & Armored Cars full of Money ??.. By the way.. that's where the money is !!!.. Coloreds are basically dumb & try to copy whites.. but they can't keep up mentally.... so they get caught & go to prison !!!.. As for the Latinos.. they're just trying to put food on the table...No one wants to hire them either unless it's picking crops.. or working in the Mexican food Industry...
