This is for you, my good man.

- Dude!

- You get the other half

when you pick us up.

- Ah, this is bullshit!

At least pay for the pizza, man!

This is all the way

the hell out here,

how am I gonna account

for this on the books?

- Fine!

Now, remember, this address,

plus a sausage, mushroom,

and anchovy pizza.

That's the code to come

pick us up.

- Yeah, the address is fine.

I mean, no one's gonna come... whoa, whoa,

let's not get our signals crossed here, ok?

Just stick to the plan.

- Whatever!

- Whoa, hey, whoa.

You know, since we paid for it.

- What if there's no

hide-a-rock?

- There is!

- How do you know?

- Because I know,

we wouldn't be here

if there wasn't a hide-a-rock.

- Then why haven't you found it?

- Because it looks like a

f*ckin' rock!

That's the beauty of its design!

- I've got no bars, why

would you pay all this money

to live up in a place

with no bars?

I have to call the pizza

guy from inside, I guess.

That'll actually make it seem

more legit.

Yeah, the caller ID shows this

address, the guy picks us up.

Nothin' funny about that,

nothin' to pin it to us.

It's almost too perfect.

Leo?

- Yeah? I was saying we have to

call the pizza guy from...

- I heard you.

Hear that?

What was that?

- Don't move.

It's an alarm.

- Shit, I didn't know

about the alarm.

- It's ok, just there

might be motion detectors.

- Like lasers?

- Maybe, or infrared.

You know, everything gives

off infrared heat, even ice?

- That's f*cking fascinating,

do you know what

you're doing there?

- Yeah, getting it.

- What does that mean,

you're getting it?

- I've established a pattern,

and I'm working within the

confines of that pattern

to decipher the, oh!

- Incorrect, system armed!

- Armed, you just armed it?
