I cannot do that. The radio station's

having a contest for $10,000,

and today might be my lucky day!

Shame, the least you could do is shave.

- I'm clean.

- You need to wear a sign that says so.

- And why don't you dress up any more?

- Who for? You?

If you took more care of yourself,

somebody besides me could put up with you.

Watch out! I like that freaky shit!

Haven't you ever heard of that expression

''Dress for success''?

They're ready to turn off my phone.

They cancelled my credit cards.

About to repossess my car.

I'd say I am dressed for my success.

You need to go to the bank.

They're about to foreclose this place, too.

That would make you homeless,

office-less, Peaches-less.

- You wouldn't work out of a cardboard box?

- Exactly. Mr Gold left this for you.

Why you holding out?

That's what l been waiting on.

Let's see here... What the f*ck is this?

''The repairs to the limousine and the

window have been deducted from your fee.''

Peaches... You know that money I owe you?

Save it!

Don't worry about it, Shame.

I got a little money saved up,

so I should be all right.

When I get back on my feet,

I'm gonna kick you down, right?

Please! You got some company down there.

- Hey, Sonny, what's up, man?

- Hey, Shame!

Gimme one sec, I'll be right there.

- What's up, Sonny?

- Hey, Shame, how you doing?

Look at you, looking like new money!

Check you out!

How they treating you in DC?

Well, you know, I miss the streets,

but it's a pay cheque.

- You remember Peaches?

- Hey, how you doing?

- Hangin' in there.

- You still with this bum?

- Yeah, I'm trying to get into heaven.

- And giving me hell all the way!

Come on in, man.

Something to drink? Soda?

Yeah, a soda, and none of that healthy shit.

Get the man a soda, will you?
