‘If you know a man is wrong, I mean, if you know he did somethin’ bad but you don’t turn him in to the law because he’s your friend, do you think that’s right?
‘All you got is your friends, Easy.’
‘But then what if you know somebody else who did something wrong but not so bad as the first man, but you turn this other guy in?’
‘I guess you figure that that other guy got ahold of some bad luck.’
We laughed for a long time.
