Speaking of Lucky's Jew partners, Rothstein is on the phone with Mickey Doyle, and he's adopted that frightening demeanor where he's cheerful and smiling on the outside, which you know means they're like ten times angrier than you've ever seen them. "Why am I talking to you?" he wonders aloud. Why does he even have to place this call? He hasn't gotten his liquor, and Nucky seems to think it acceptable business practice to be unreachable for days on end. Mickey sputters excuses, but Rothstein just says, "I want what I paid for. I want it now. And I don't ever want to find myself chatting with you again." Mickey promises it by tomorrow morning. Mickey hangs up and tells Eli, who calls him an idiot. Mickey tells him to watch his tone. Eli reminds him that Nucky explicitly said to avoid Tabor Heights, and the backroads are unpassable until May. Eli says again: "Don't do this." "I'm not doing nothing," Mickey says with his customary nervous giggle. "They are," he says, nodding at his lowly employees. Mickey instructs the kid who made the whorehouse delivery last week (the one who told Harrow about Mickey bragging that he killed Manny) that they are to go straight through to Tabor Heights and stop for no one, not even the law.
