* AffablyEvil: Starts out as this, being an amoral thug who is also capable of being friendly and generous towards others. Becomes FauxAffablyEvil after the Lufthansa heist. By the time Henry's trying to sell him silencers, he's not even affable anymore.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Especially as a younger man, he tips generously and when he steals a truck and warns the driver that he knows where the driver lives, he slips a few bucks into the guy's wallet before handing it back.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: After beating the living shit out of Billy Batts in Henry's own bar, he sheepishly says to Henry "I didn't want to get blood on the floor." [[spoiler: As opposed to, like, sign his own death warrant by brutally killing a made guy, just because the guy was being obnoxious.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Does not approve of Henry dealing drugs.
** Although it's less 'drugs are wrong,' and more about how the feds crack down harsher on drug dealers, and bring down people connected to them. Paulie doesn't want to take the risk.

Added DiffLines:
