NFT: Another Goodfellas question

Ron from Ninerland : 11/8/2018 1:32 pm
The night Jimmy had planed to whack Maury, they're out drinking when Jimmy tells Henry, "that thing we talked about, forget about it". Henry interpreted that Maury had gotten a reprieve. Why then did Tommy whack him ?
My assumption was

because he's Tommy
Probably

just to set his mind at ease as he was visibly very nervous?
Tommy yelling at Carbone in the car always cracks me up.

"Where ya goin' ya dizzy motherfucker you!"

"I'm better off lettin' HIM fucking drive."

"What 'warm it up?' Get the fuck outta here!"

I think it

was because Morrie had the audacity to complain about not getting his share from the heist and had complete disregard for Jimmy cutting him a break even though he owed him money.

Jimmy knew Henry was close to Morrie  
Greg from LI : 11/8/2018 1:39 pm : link
It was sort of a favor to Henry to take him out of the loop for Morrie's demise. That's what I always assumed, anyway.
In the movie at least

because he followed them outside into the parking lot and was still demanding the money. He got a reprieve until they realized he would never shut up about it.

Yeah, I think in the moment with Henry Jimmy was going to let it go, but Morrie keeping on about it changed his mind back.

That's how I always saw it
Tommy didn't want to pay him for the heist

^^THIS^^^

and the fact that Jimmy killed ANYBODY asking for money....Henry says, "Jimmy was cutting ties with everybody....What did I care? I wasn't asking him for anything."

In the long, steadicam Copacabana shot, Henry and Karen enter and leave the kitchen through the same entrance.
Because he wanted to get Belle

The acting job DeNiro did at the bar to show the audience that he was changing his mind (as he was changing his mind given Morrie not letting it go) without moving a muscle in his face that I could see was to me...the best single shot of DeNiro's talent in all the movies he ever did.


Watch it again. Listen to Morrie go on and on and watch DeNiro...you just know he just decided Morrie is going to die that night.


imho
I think it goes a little deeper

He was starting to not trust Henry (or anyone for that matter) OR simply did not want Henry involved in or thinking they had anything to do with Murray and his "disappearance".

If he ever became a rat it was one less thing he was a "witness" too.

But we all know how that worked out.

Many mob hits involved everyone involved taking a shot or a stab at someone even after they were dead just so they were all accomplices.

Or they just simply wouldn't have you around when it happens.

Be a part of it or "know nothing" about it.

The Mob had its fair share of legal experts.

I still laugh out loud every time I see that scene.
Jimmy just wanted to take Henry out of the equation
