Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels script
Synopsis: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a 1998 British crime comedy film written and directed by Guy Ritchie, produced by Matthew Vaughn and starring an ensemble cast featuring Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Nick Moran, Jason Statham, Steven Mackintosh, Vinnie Jones, and Sting.

A well-dressed, zealous character (Eddy) appears from behind the crowd

waving money. It seems he can't wait to get rid of it.

EDDY:

Bargain, that's a bloody bargain if I ever heard one. Ten pounds you

say? I'll have five.

Certainly sir. I'll just wrap.

Changing his attention.

BACON:

Excuse me misses, sorry sir, ladies first and all that.

A tourist spectator, rather than a buyer, has been. put on the spot.

She fumbles through her bag hastily all too aware of the attention of

the crowd, of which she is now the focus. She passes her money like

it's contaminated. Others follow suit.

Buy 'em, you better buy 'em; they're not stolen, they just never been

paid for.

This really stokes the fire. The money can't come fast enough. Just as

business reaches its peak there is a call of alarm from the first

enthusiastic punter, who seems to be rather more familiar than he first

pretended.

EDDY:

Bacon!

Bacon's expression changes dramatically. A series of crash zooms

between Ed's, Bacon's and a third party's eyes (the police) reveal

there is a problem. They're off: EDDY and BACON run like they have done

this before. They go down an ally; Ed jumps some stairs, we freeze.

BACON:

(voice-over)

Ed can run fast, talk fast, eat fast, and play cards fast, but he's

fucking slow when it comes to spotting the roz.

EDDY:

(voice-over)

The reason he is called BACON is he spent so much of his youth in the

police station that people thought he was one of them. But he is a big

boy now and it is time to move on.

We cut to a shot of Ed as he lands. He has made good distance.

INT. GROCER'S SHOP - MORNING

EDDY arrives at a grocer's shop. We meet Tom. Tom is talking to Nick

the Greek.
