The Kingpin's Prop Guy
"Hello, Sime Brothers Propworks?"
"This is the Kingpin."
"Sime Brothers Propworks."
"Don't hang up if you value your business. This is the Kingpin, and I want some work done. I need a scale model of the city, four feet wide and six feet long."
"All right...miniature work, huh? You making a movie, 'Kingpin?'"
"I really am the Kingpin, and no, I'm not making a movie. I'm going to smash it to impress some hoodlums."
"...okay then. Pretty expensive demonstration, Mr. Kingpin."
"I have plenty of money, fool! I'm the Kingpin of Crime! Now please have the model shipped to my office by Friday. Don't worry about the price, just send the bill to my secretary, Madeline."
