Riff

LOUISE: Everything okay?
RORY: Yeah, Riff, everything’s fine.

Riff (Russ Tamblyn) is the leader of the The Jets gang in West Side Story, previously discussed. The loyal muscle to former member Tony, he urges Tony to fight, so that Tony becomes a murderer.

Rory sees Louise as Paris’ henchman and attack dog, who eggs her on. In the film, Riff is killed in a gang fight he helped instigate – perhaps a bit of wishful thinking from Rory!
