Help me Identify a movie based on a fragment of it. A mobster (somewhere in USA like NYC maybe) is in his home with his wife, and is lamenting to her that he must soon go do something or confront some people that he doesn't want to. And she says something like "you're the king of the castle, and I stick by you" or something to that affect. And that sometimes he'll have to do some things that aren't fun, but he will still have to do them. This is a mobster movie probably from 90's or 2000's. Thanks a lot!

Best answer: I think it might be Mystic River... Sean Penn and Laura Linney have a conversation that goes something like that at the very end....

Best answer: from IMDb quotes for Mystic River:

Annabeth Markum: Their daddy's a king. And a king knows what to do and *does* it. Even when it's hard. And their daddy will do whatever he has to for those he loves. And that's all that matters. Because everyone is weak, Jimmy. Everyone but us. We will never be weak. And you, you could rule this town. And after Jimmy, let's take the girls down to the parade. Katie would like that.
