Shark Tale (2004) Poster


Robert De Niro: Don Lino



  • Sykes : Come on, snap your fin. Snap it. You're not snapping it.

    Don Lino : I'm snapping it, I'm snapping it!

    Sykes : That's okay, a lot of great whites can't do it, yo.

    Don Lino : Yo?

    Sykes : Yo, what's up?

    Don Lino : What's up with what?

    Sykes : Yo-yo-yo, yo-yo-yo, yo-yo-yo-yo...

    Don Lino : Hey, you say "Yo" one more time, and I'm gonna yo you.

    Sykes : I'm sorry.

  • Oscar : Sykes, shut up! SHUT UP!

    Sykes : Hey, that's good. That's good, I like that! Shut up, Lino! Ha! Shut up. Oh, kid, he wants to talk to you.

    Oscar : [Whispers]  No. I'm not here. I'm not here!

    Sykes : Yeah, he's right here.

    Oscar : [Sykes gives shellphone to Oscar]  Hello?

    Don Lino : [on phone with Oscar]  Shut up? Shut up? You don't tell *me* shut up, I tell *you* shut up!

    Don Lino : [hears phone dialing] 

    Don Lino : What?

    Luca : Hi, how you doing? I'll have a large pie, everything on it, anchovies, meatballs, mushrooms...

    Don Lino : Luca!

    Luca : Oh... Uh, hi, Boss! What're you doing working at a pizza joint?

    Don Lino : [shouts]  Get off the phone!

    Luca : But I'm hungry.

    [hangs up] 

    Don Lino : [sighs]  My guys are coming for you, Sharkslayer. They're going to tear you fin from fin!

  • Sykes : [about Lenny]  Look, all I'm saying is the kid ain't exactly no killer!

    Don Lino : My Lenny is a killer, you hear me? A cold-blooded killer! Look at him!

    [Lenny wiggles around on a bar stool] 

  • [Don Lino gets wedged in a porthole while chasing Oscar] 

    Don Lino : [calling after Oscar]  You're gonna regret the day you became the Shark Slayer!

    [the Shrimp appears in another porthole] 

    Shrimp : Well, well, well... look who's stuck in the porthole...

    Don Lino : Huh?

    Shrimp : You still hungry, big guy? Well, say hello to my little friends!

    [a bunch of shrimps appear and attack Lino] 

  • Don Lino : I tell you what's what, and what?

    Sykes : What?

    Don Lino : What what?

    Sykes : What what nothin'. You said what first.

    Don Lino : I didn't say what first.

    Sykes : You said "and then what?' and I said "what?'

    Don Lino : No, I said "What, what?" as in "What, what?"


    Sykes : ...You said what first.

  • Don Lino : Hey, Luca... Get Sykes. He knows that Reef better than anybody. I want to know all about this guy. I want to know what he does. I want to know where he eats. I want to know where he sleeps. He pops a gill, I want to know about it. Who is the Shark Slayer?

  • Oscar : Now which one of y'all sardines called this here meeting?

    Don Lino : That would be me.

    [slams the door, making Sykes, Oscar and Lenny cringe a little] 

    Don Lino : So, this is the Shark Slayer. I've been looking forward to meeting you. I feel like we're practically family, you know? Funny, ain't it? I brought my sons into the world, full of love and care. And then you took them out. Do you know who I am? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? I'm the Don, the boss of the Great White Sharks!

    Luca : Hey boss, I saved you a seat!

  • Don Lino : [hugging his son]  Lenny? Is that you? You're alive? I thought I'd lost you... What're you wearing, huh? What is that?

    [Lenny heaves a resigned sigh and sheds his disguise. The other sharks gape at him] 

    Luca : Hey, boss, it's Lenny - he was wearing a disguise so we wouldn't recognise him, but he's not wearing a disguise, so we DO recognise him!

    Lenny : Hi, Pop...

    Don Lino : Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you out of your MIND? Do you have any idea how this looks?

    Giuseppe : This is the best sit-down I've ever been to!

    Don Lino : What're you doing with this guy? He took out your own flesh and blood, Frankie!

    Lenny : But Pop, just listen...

    Don Lino : But nothing, you never take sides against the family, ever!

    Oscar : Don, Lino, sir, listen, it's not his fault - this is between you and me!

    Don Lino : What did I ever do to YOU? You took Frankie away, and you turned Lenny into a dolphin! I'm going to get you!

    [He goes for Oscar] 

  • [while Don Lino talks to Sykes, the music record slips] 

    Don Lino : LUCA!

    [Luca fixes the record, but accidentally sets it to play "Baby Got Back". Lino and Sykes stare at Luca, who quickly puts the record off] 

    Luca : Hey, boss... big butts. Ha ha.

    Don Lino : Oy vey...

  • Giuseppe : It's a terrible thing. Everyone loved Frankie. May whoever did this die a thousand deaths. May his stinking, maggot-covered corpse rot in the fiery depths of Hell.

    Don Lino : Thank you for your kind thoughts, Guiseppe.

  • Don Feinberg : He come out of nowhere, this guy. Calls himself...

    [turns around with a flourish] 

    Don Feinberg : The Shark Slayer!

    Don Lino : [behind him]  Ira, over here...

    [Feinberg turns to face Lino] 

    Don Feinberg : [makes the flourish again]  The Shark Slayer!

    Don Lino : Where do I find him?

    Don Feinberg : He lives on the South Side. That's all we could dig up.

  • [first words] 

    Don Lino : [looking in an aquarium of piranha]  How are my babies this morning? You miss me? You doing good, huh? Huh? You see, Sykes, it's a fish-eat-fish world - you either take or you get TAKEN!

    [drops a morsel into the aquarium and the fish fight over it] 

  • Oscar : [clears throat]  It was an anchor that killed Frankie. I didn't have anything to do with it and neither did Lenny.

    Don Lino : Well then if... that was true, then why did you run away?

    Lenny : Because you always wanted me to be like Frankie. I'll never be the shark you want me to be.

    Oscar : What is your problem? So your son likes kelp. So his best friend's a fish. So he likes to dress like a dolphin, so what? Everybody loves him just the way he is. Why can't you?
