- What's happening?

- Nick, we've got a young punk here.

- Nice bike. Fast, huh?

- Yeah.

- You want to bet?

- Ain't you got nothing better to do?

I say $50 on Nick.

- What do you say?

- Yeah, sure.

I'll take your social security.

You're a real f*cking whacko,

you know that, pal?

Nicky, it's me.

The school called again.

We're three months behind.

I told them we'd send a cheque.

I'm taking the kids

to Mom's on Saturday.

Good luck today. Bye.

Nick Conklin? Barney Adell, attorney.

Do yourself a favor,

wear a jacket and tie today.

How are you, pal?

Patrick has been

calling Sister Elizabeth names.

- I called her an ugly goose.

- That's not so bad.

Give this money to Mommy.

I'll see you in two days.

Have a good day at school.

All right, hang on tight.

I hope somebody is paying you

to wear that suit.

Come on, get on. I don't want

anybody to see you like that.

- New shoes, $85 a pop.

- I hope you're wearing socks.

Ladies of the 80's

are going for shoes.

They say it's the second place

they're looking.

I heard that an Internal Affairs

review isn't all that bad.

- I'll let you know when it's over.

- Show up in uniform, with your medals.

I'm serious. You've got

commendations up the yin yang.

- Vincent, let's go.

- Yeah, hold on to your dick.

- Meet me at Scalari's for lunch.

- We'll see how it goes.

If you don't show up,

you're going to be in real trouble.

- You watch your tail.

- Yeah.

You'll walk. Just tell the truth.

Run your mouth, they'll screw you.

- I've got nothing to hide.

- I hope not, for my sake.

- Hi Nick, good luck.

- Thanks.

- How's your lawyer?

- I hardly know him.

If these people get their way,

you'll get to know him real well.

You'll be sending his kids

through college.

- That's an impressive record.

- A regular hero.

- Tell me about Monte Ronan.

- Good cop.

He's the kind of guy you want

around when the shit goes down.

- That's what you think.

- Yeah.

- He's dirt.

- Yeah? Have you worked the streets?

We've got 30 homicides a week.

- Tell us about Patrick Donleavy.

- My client knows of no malfeasance.

Your unit arrested three suspects.

Cash was logged in at $65,000

and change.

We have reason to believe

there was over $73,000.

- Our sources say...

- Just listen to the cops.

It depends on the cops. Some

heroes think the rules don't apply.

I try to do my job.

It ain't easy, but I'm clean.

You have two kids in school.

House payments.

Alimony and an apartment.

I admire your thrift.

- Well, life's a bitch.

- You're out at least 1,000 a month.

If you want to charge me, charge me.

If not, go back to your office.

We'll charge you.

We can always get to a dirty cop.

You want dirt, go to City Hall.

Don't come here busting my ass!

- Suits!

- Are you okay?

How are the girls in Japan?

What is the most important control

exercised by a sergeant?

- A, cost control?

- B, manpower control.

What are we going for here,

sergeant or the supreme court?

How are you doing, Joe?

Give me a Scotch.

- That bad?

- I can't take any more of this shit.

He's going to be drinking his lunch.

To the Internal Affairs Division:

F*ck 'em!

You ought to think about that. It's

a fast way to get to headquarters.

- You never know.

- That's right.

- Did you see Abolafia?

- I saw him.

- I hear he's importing Subarus.

- Wise guys have got to eat, too.

Lunching with the mob. Intelligence

has probably got this place wired.

Just talk into my left titty.

Look out!

What's going on?

- Don't even think about it.

- It's done, babe.

What did you say?

Sit down.

Craig Bolotin

Craig Martin Bolotin is an American screenwriter and film director. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley where he studied philosophy and penned film reviews. He’s written and rewritten numerous screenplays (several unaccredited) for such directors as Ridley Scott and Francis Ford Coppola. After moving to Los Angeles, Bolotin wrote and directed the short film Sapphire Man starring Powers Boothe, which was selected to play at the Sundance Film Festival, and won the Special Gold Jury Award at the Houston International Film Festival. His screenwriting break came with his first uncredited rewrite for the critically acclaimed Desperately Seeking Susan, starring Rosanna Arquette and Madonna. The film was named one of the 10 best films of the year by The New York Times. Arquette was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a comedy. Shortly thereafter, Bolotin sold his first original screenplay, a comedy No Small Affair starring John Cryer. His next produced credit was Black Rain starring Michael Douglas and directed by Ridley Scott, which grossed over 140 million dollars. Bolotin then wrote the original screenplay Straight Talk, produced by Disney. He directed his first feature film for producer Arnon Milchan and Warner Brothers, That Night, starring Juliette Lewis. This was also the first feature film for actresses Eliza Dushku and Katherine Heigl. He then wrote and directed the original screenplay Light It Up with Forest Whittaker and Rosario Dawson, a story that shines a light on the plight of inner city school children. Bolotin wrote the script for The Longest Ride (2015), based on the novel of the same name for Fox 2000. He recently adapted Hilary Mantel's novel Eight Months on Ghazzah Street, which Michael Apted is attached to direct. more…
