Under Your Wing is upper class gangster speak coming from HESS who has a run in with a fellow associate in the underworld crime syndicate of business.
HESS: You didn’t give me a shot. You knew by the look in my eyes that I needed your help, guidance, a hand up and you left me stranded in the ocean but I didn’t drown…I swam, I swam until I reached the shore.
And here I am.
At first, you were part of my motivation. You were someone I wanted to destroy. Over time, I became less angry at you and I began to have compassion, I began to realize that the greatest thing you could have done wasn’t to take me under your wing but to leave me to drown because now I am someone in my own right.
Had you helped me, I would have been your wing man and truth be told, I am nobody’s wing man. I am boss of my own domain.
No, I don’t wish to take you down, so long as you keep doing you and stay where you belong, I will do me and we will be nice and friendly…that’s where I stand at the present time.
