"Say hello to my little friend!"

Scarface - Tony Montana gets even

Description: Deadly invitation uttered by Al Pacino in the role of Cuban mobster Tony Montana as he defends his home from intruders in the motion picture Scarface (1983).

Tony "Scarface" Montana is a refugee who arrives in Miami Beach, Florida in 1980 after Fidel Castro allows 125,000 Cubans to leave Cuba in what is called the Mariel Boatlift.

Arriving in America, Tony, and his friend Manny Ray (Steven Bauer), a buddy from the army are held in a camp called 'Freedomtown' awaiting release into the United States. During their stay, Tony and Manny accept a contract to kill Emilio Rebenga (Roberto Contreras), a former high ranking Cuban official who was responsible for torturing the brother of a man named Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia), now a car salesman and cocaine kingpin.

With the deed done, Tony and Manny are released and get jobs as dishwashers. Soon after they are approached by representatives of Frank Lopez who offer Tony and Manny $5000 to facilitate a cocaine drug deal. They agree, but during the operation they are double-crossed. But Tony kills the wannabe swindlers and returns both the cocaine that was to be sold, as well as the money meant as payment for the coke to Frank Lopez. Impressed, Frank hires both Tony and Manny into his drug empire.

Scarface - Tony Montana meets Elvira Hancock

"Hey baby what is your problem? Huh, you got a problem? You're good looking, you got a beautiful body, beautiful legs, beautiful face, all these guys in love with you. Only you got a look in your eye like you haven't been fucked in a year!" - Tony Montana to Elvira Hancock

All is going well for Tony, He has risen in the ranks of a major drug cartel, he has reunited with his sister Gina, (whom he secretly lusts after), and he has married Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer) who was the former girlfriend of Frank Lopez (whom Tony later has killed)

But just when Tony is at the top of his game, his new wife, Elvira leaves because she is tired of living in an world of cocaine and corruption. To make things worse, Tony is arrested and charged with IRS tax evasion that will send him to prison.

To get out of his predicament, he is offered a deal. If he kills a journalist who will soon reveal damaging evidence to the General Assembly at the United Nations Building, his powerful friends will guarantee his IRS charges will go away.

Reluctantly Tony agrees, but he refuses to carry out his assignment when he discovers that journalist's car that has been rigged with explosives now carries the man's wife and baby. Tony is a killer, but his personal code will not allow him to hurt an innocent woman and child. For not fulfilling his end of the deal, Tony is marked for death.

Meanwhile, Tony visits his sister Gina who is now enjoying the fruits of her brother's wealth, but when he sees his friend Manny, whom he warned to stay away from his sister, in a compromising situation, he goes mad and kills his best friend. Sadly, Gina tells Tony that she and Manny were just married and that Tony's actions were unwarranted.

Realizing his mistake, Tony returns to his mansion and takes a large quantity of cocaine to alleviate his grief. Gina, however, follows Tony home and pointing a gun at her brother shouts hysterically and insists that he reveal that he has wanted to make love to her for years. As Gina fires a round at Tony, assassins who had entered the mansion to kill Tony believe the shot is directed at them and open fire, killing Gina. Tony goes berserk, and with a cocaine high he begins to defend his home from the interlopers.

With his kingdom crumbling, Tony pulls out heavy weaponry (a grenade launcher) and points it at the locked upstairs door. With no lack of bravado, he cries, “You wanna fuck with me? Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. Say hello to my little friend!” Tony then fires a round that blows away the door and a number of killers on the other side.

In the end, Tony’s reign is over and he is shot in the back with a shotgun and left floating in a fountain in the lobby of his home, despite his earlier claims, in which he said, ”I'm Tony Montana! You fuck with me, you fuckin' with the best!”

As his body floats face down in the fountain, we see a large sculpture of a globe, on which read the words: "The World is Yours."

Note: The 1983 film Scarface is a remake of the 1932 film of the same name starring Paul Muni as Tony Camonte, a hoodlum who rises to power in the bootlegging business in 1930s Chicago. As the end of the film, Tony is killed by the police as he flees capture. In the final shot we see the words "The World is Your" on a sidewalk sign above Tony's dead body.
