MANAGER:

Maybe you don't see my sign?

The manager points to a sign on the wall

'WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST ARTICLES.'

CHILI:

Look, I didn't come down to sunny Florida to freeze my ass.

You follow me? You get the coat back or you give me the

three seventy-nine my ex-wife paid for it at Alexander's.

The Manager looks o.s., and begins speaking in Italian.

Chili reacts as we hear the name RAY BARBONI mentioned a

couple of times.

MANAGER:

Explain to him how Mr. Barboni borrow the coat.

A WAITER joins Chili and the Manager in the doorway.

CHILI:

Ray Bones took my coat? Just now?

WAITER:

He didn't take it. He borrow it. See, someone took his coat,

you know . . .

(indicates flight jacket)

. . . leave this old one. So Mr. Barboni, he put on this

other coat that fit him pretty good.

CHILI:

You mean my coat.

WAITER:

He was wearing it, you know, to go home. He wasn't gonna

keep it.

CHILI:

My car keys were in that coat.

MANAGER:

We call you a taxi.

CHILI:

Lemme get this straight. You aren't responsible for any lost

articles like an expensive coat of mine, but you're gonna

find Ray Bones' coat or get him a new one? Is that what

you're telling me?

MANAGER:

Mr. Barboni a good customer.

(making sure to add)

Works for Jimmy Capp.

CHILI:

I know who he works for. Where's your phone.

INT. TOMMY CARLO'S CAR -- DAY

together, tries to stay warm . . .

TOMMY:

TOMMY:

(nervous now)

Tomorrow, I see on the TV weather, it's gonna be nice and

warm. You won't need the coat.

Chili points out the window.

CHILI:

This is it.

EXT. VICTOR HOTEL -- DAY

As Tommy pulls up out front.

over at him.
