'cause this is not a real cop car.

Listen, we're down the street.

It's gonna happen so fast

they won't notice.

I need a doughnut. If I had a

doughnut, I'd feel like a real cop.

Oh, this does not look like

a business transaction.

What the hell is that?

Hey, hey!


Oh, no. Oh, no.

Oh, f*ck!

Hey! Hold it right there.

Don't shoot me.

I'm a civilian, see?

You know why this door's ajar?

Um, kidneys.

Uh, you know,

you drink beer, you gotta piss.


Goddamn kidneys.

How many drinks

have you had tonight, sir?

Well, uh,

John got smashed.

I'm designated,

Officer, don't worry--

I'm dry as a bone.

So, I'm drivin'

John home, and, uh...

You know, he's gotta--

Leonard. Leonard!

So, pissing wakes his wife up

but coming into the house doesn't?


Well, the bathroom

is right by the bed.

What if he don't flush?


Eh, she's gonna see

it in the morning.

Put down the gun!

Put the gun down!

Step away slowly,

put your hands

behind your head,

and face the window.

Oh, God!

The battery's dead.

Go away.


- It's John.

Look, La Torre and

his guys just called.

They want to change

the meeting place.

I choose the place.

I know, that's what I told 'em.

Manny, tell me what they said.

Tell me exactly what they said.

They said there was some

heat at the original place.

Wait, wait, wait, they said--

They suggested that you pick me up?

- Yeah.

Listen, here's what's gonna happen.

I'm gonna call you back

on your cell phone.

John, the cell phone--

- It's gonna be fine.

I'm gonna tell you exactly

where I'm located, okay?

We're gonna have

this same conversation.

You're gonna say exactly

the same thing on the cell phone.


- Yeah.

Manny, you're gonna

be fine, okay?

I'm calling you right back.
