Frank Sheeran: Hello?
Jimmy Hoffa: Is that Frank?
Frank Sheeran: Yes.
Jimmy Hoffa: Hiya, Frank. This is Jimmy Hoffa.
Frank Sheeran: Glad to meet you.
Jimmy Hoffa: Glad to meet you too, even if it’s over the phone. Our friend speaks very highly of you.
Frank Sheeran: Thank you.
Jimmy Hoffa: I understand you’re a brother of mine.
Frank Sheeran: Yeah, yeah.
Jimmy Hoffa: I heard you paint houses.
Frank Sheeran: Yes, I do, sir.
