A friend, Gail, e-mailed me about the 1988 film, “Married to the Mob.” The character Angela – played by Michelle Pfeiffer – is the widow of a mobster. She is being threatened, by the FBI, with all kinds of fabricated criminal charges, in an effort to get her to “cooperate” with them.  In one scene:

Angela: “God, you people work just like the mob! There’s no difference.”

FBI Regional Director: “Oh, there’s a big difference, Mrs. deMarco. The mob is run by murdering, thieving, lying, cheating psychopaths. We work for the President of the United States of America.”
