Is that supposed to impress me?

Lek wants you to come

see him tomorrow.

If it's so important,

he can come see me himself.

When Lek tells you to...

No one tells me what

to do in my club.

You come to my club,

you upset my guests...

and you drink

what you can't afford.

Now you tell Lek, I will

see him when I have time.

Now, where were we?

Josh Pratt?

What about my bag?

Just get on.

Guess I slept through the

"Welcome to Thailand" part.


What the hell are you doing?

Who is that?

Uh... okay.

Slow down.

Yo, what... Jesus!

Okay, there is a street

you can drive on, you know?

Well, that was interesting.

To you, maybe.

So you work for my brother, huh?

- Yup.

- Nice.

I will work for him,

nothing else and nothing more.

Sure. Got it.

You're just like him.


What took you so long?

Very funny.

What happened to you?

Oh, I cut myself shaving.


Look at you. Oh!

It's good to see you, Josh.

Good to see you, too.

Sorry it was so last minute.

Are you kidding me?

My house is your house.

For the pain.

Thank you.

Yeah, I don't think

it's big enough.

Yeah, make yourself at home.

Take off your jacket.

I like your pajamas, by the way.


Oh, how you doing? Josh.

I heard a lot about you.

It's a good night tonight.

Derek's my...


Since when do you need

a bodyguard?

Long story.

Let's talk about your brother.

Now my resources say he's been wrapped up

with the Jao Poh for several years now.

Now how much contact have you

had with him prior to this?

I haven't seen my brother

in about five years.

We talk on the phone now and

then, I knew about his club.

I knew he was doing well,

but that's about it.

I was busy trying to make

it at work...

and I didn't talk to him as much

as I would have liked to.
