~ Exchange between Peter Sullivan and Connor Rooney
Connor Rooney is the main antagonist of the 2002 film Road to Perdition.
Connor is the unstable, violent son of Irish mob boss John Rooney, who is jealous of his father's relationship with Michael Sullivan, Rooney's enforcer and foster son. He frequently acts out against his father by needlessly killing people whom the elder Rooney simply wants "straightened out", and is secretly embezzling from the Rooney "family business". He is the thorn in his father's side and is widely disliked throughout his father's organization; Frank Nitti, Al Capone's right-hand man and Rooney's erstwhile business associate, calls Connor "a big baby who doesn't know his thumb from his dick".
During a meeting between Connor, Sullivan and one of Rooney's associates, Finn McGovern, Connor murders McGovern, an act which is secretly witnessed by Sullivan's son Michael. Sullivan swears his son to secrecy while Rooney tries to force Connor to apologize for what he has done. Humiliated, Connor gets back at Sullivan by ordering his men to kill Sullivan's wife and younger son Peter (mistaking him for Michael). Sullivan, wanting revenge, goes to Capone to seek work and also to discover the whereabouts of Connor, who has gone into hiding. Instead, Rooney is informed of the meeting and, fearing for Connor's safety, reluctantly allows Capone to send assassin Harlen Maguire to kill Sullivan.
Sullivan escapes from Maguire and eventually ends up being forced to kill Rooney. No longer seeing a reason to protect Connor, Capone tells Sullivan that he can be found at a nearby hotel. Sullivan immediately travels and shoots Connor in the head as he is taking a bath, killing him and avenging his family.
