Ness: – What is that?
Malone: What is that?
Ness: Yes, what is it?
Malone: God, I’m with a heathen. That is my callbox key. And that is Saint Jude.
Stone: Il Santo Jude. He’s the patron saint of lost causes. And policemen.
Ness: Patron saint of policemen?
Malone: Everybody needs a friend.
David Mamet, Screenplay: The Untouchables (1987)
