Hi, Frishka.

Hey, Ringo!

#All the boys and girls#

You're getting

more handsome every day,

but you still need

a haircut.

No. Mom, it's cool.

Like the Beatles.

I know.

Here's a list

of what we need.

See you later.

Bye, Ma.

Hi, Izek.

Mazal. Jacob.

Listen to Mom.

#Norman Greenbaum'S

"Spirit in the sky"#

Don't listen.

I like the Beatles.

Tommy Goldberg

thought he was a wise guy.

He'd watched too many

american gangster movies

and was nursing

a nasty drug habit.

Plus he was

a bit of a wild card,

a lethal combination.

You gotta talk to Tommy

about his tab.

You know

it's getting out of hand.

Don't worry about it.

I'll take care of it.

When? He's taking advantage...

I said don't worry about it.

Well, I do.

Tommy, good to see you, man.

You, too.

So, regular table,

three packs of smokes.

You know, the usual.


You are looking so good.

Thanks. Anything else, Tommy?


- Okay.

Table three in the back.

Hey, Ringo.

Hey, Tommy.

What's happening, little man?

Oh, not too much.

- What's happening?

I'm cool.


Tommy's tab.

#Prepare yourself, you know it's a must#

#Gotta have a friend

in Jesus#

#So you know

that when you die#

#He's gonna recommend you#

#To the to the spirit in the sky#


#Gonna recommend you to

the spirit in the sky#


#That's where you're

gonna go when you die#

#When you die

and they lay you to rest#

Oh, sh*t.

He just pulled a straight!

I'll give you

the skinny, brother.

You just got

beat hard.

Like, hard.

Yeah, yeah. I'll beat

your mother f***ing hard.


Laugh. Come on.

Just f***ing around.

Kaleb, come on.

F***ing laugh now.

Come on. I thought it

was f***ing funny.

We're just f***ing around,


So was I.

You just almost pissed

your pants, man.
