Crime drama written and directed by Andrea Berloff. The story follows three Hell’s Kitchen housewives, Kathy Brennan (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby O’Carroll (Tiffany Haddish), and Claire Walsh (Elisabeth Moss), in the 1970s whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands, proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition.
Man: Times change. You do what you got to do. Some hits. For money, you survive.
Jeffrey Kahn: Most employers don’t want mothers. It’s a competitive market.
Kathy Brennan: You don’t know me.
Gabriel O’Malley: Now might be the time.
Claire Walsh: For what?
Gabriel O’Malley: For you.
Claire Walsh: [to Gabriel] I don’t want you to do it. I want you to teach me how to do it.
Kathy Brennan: Our husbands have twenty-four months left of their sentences.
Gary Silvers: This is the Irish mob, organized crime.
[to Kathy, Ruby and Claire]
Little Jackie: We’re going to take care of you. You girls are going to be just fine.
Kathy Brennan: We got no money.
Claire Walsh: I can’t even make the rent with what they gave me last night.
Ruby O’Carroll: They didn’t want me in the family in the first place.
[to Kathy, Ruby and Claire]
Bar Owner: Forty years we pay protection and we don’t get nothing for it.
Kathy Brennan: They have been telling us forever that we are never going to do anything but have babies. A bunch of men who have forgotten what family means.
Ruby O’Carroll: So we remind them.
Peter Brennan: You look pretty, mama.
Kathy Brennan: Pretty doesn’t matter. It’s just a tool women use.
Kathy’s Daughter: For what?
Kathy Brennan: Anything we want.
Peter Brennan: What do you want?
Ruby O’Carroll: We are going to have crews everywhere.
Kathy Brennan: I can see you’ve got brains, and I know you got money. But we got one thing that you don’t. We got criminals.
Duffy: I told you, we can’t go around working for a bunch of women.
Italian Crime Boss: You are not smarter than me. I will wipe you off the face of the earth.
Italian Crime Boss: You go to war, there’s no coming back.
Kathy Brennan: Just to be clear, now we run this neighborhood.
Kevin O’Carroll: Step off my business.
Ruby O’Carroll: It’s my business now.
[as they are counting money]
Kathy Brennan: My God, I lost count again.
Gary Silvers: They’re going to swallow this entire city.
Kathy Brennan: If we go to Brooklyn, we’re dead!
Claire Walsh: What do you wear to something like that? Do you get dressed up?
Kathy Brennan: Are you kidding?
Claire Walsh: What?
