Hey, I'll tell you what I'm gonna give you, Snakes. I'm gonna give you 'til the count of ten to get your ugly, yellow, no-good keester off my property, before I pump your guts full of lead!
~ Johnny Valentine
Keep the change, you filthy animal.

John R. Valentine, referred to as Johnny, is a fictional villain in the Home Alone film series, appearing in two fictional fictional gangster films, Angels with Filthy Souls and Angels with Even Filthier Souls. He is portrayed by character actor Ralph Foody in both movies.


In Angels with Filthy Souls (Home Alone), Snakes met up to Johnny to inform that he got the stuff and asks for the 10% money. Johnny said, that Acey ain't in charge no more that he is upstairs taking a bath. Johnny pulls out his Tommy gun and tells Snakes to get out before he counts to ten. As Johnny counts"One, two...TEN!" And shoots rapidly killing Snakes. Johnny laughs maniacally and said "Keep the change, ya filthy animal!".

Kevin uses this movie to trick a pizza delivery guy to make sure that an adult was ordering the pizza as well as thwarting the burglars by tricking them into thinking there are insane and dangerous adults in his house.

In Angels with Even Filthier Souls (Home Alone 2: Lost in New York), Johnny saids "Hold it right there" to his girlfriend Susie and said that he could smell her getting off the elevator. Susie said that she was singing at The Blue Monkey last night, which Johnny doubted her and saying that she was smooching his brother and other guys (Snuffy, Al, Leo, Little Moe with the gimpy leg, Cheeks, Boney Bob and Cliff). Johnny takes out his Tommy Gun, saying that his gun doesn't believe her. Susie pleaded her life and Johnny tells Susie to get down on her knees and tell him she loves him. Johnny tells Susie to get out of his apartment before he counts to 3, when he counted 3 he shoots rapidly killing her. Johnny then says, "Merry Christmas, you filthy animal!" and fires a couple more shots. He then says, "And a Happy New Year" before firing one more shot.

Kevin uses this movie to escape from the incident and by a strange coincidence accurately accused the concierge of being in the hotel room.


  • The title is likely a reference to the 1938 film Angels with Dirty Faces.
