Do you ever want to get

out of that car again?

Look, what do you want?

Do you want my wallet,

my watch?

It's a shitty watch.

You're welcome to it.

I want you

out of the car.

Let's get this shit

over with.

Now, motherfucker.

Which one of you

call for the truck?

Me. That was me.

Uh, this is it.

It just sort of died.

I'm the one

that called.

I guess

it was you, huh?


Hey, man, we was

doing fine here.

Uh, is it the battery?


Were you stopped, and

it wouldn't start again?

Oh, no. L-It just

died on me.

We're going to have

to take it in.

You dissin' me, man?

You bet he is.

You seeing it now, man.

That's right.

That's what he's doing.

Is that right,

you dissin' me?

No, I'm not.

Nothing like it.

I'm doing a job. This

is how I make my living.

I just ride out there

and do the job.

I want it to go

as smooth as it can.

I don't like it to be

harder than it is.

Make sure you're

in neutral

and the parking brake

is off.

That's bullshit, man.

He talking bullshit.

What's goin' down?

This is fucked up.

Get in the truck.

You'll ride up with me.

Are you the one

I'm talking to?

We all decide

what goes down,

so don't fly

that shit.

Yeah, man. F*ck you!

Am I talking

to the right man?

That's what I thought.

Look, I got

to ask you a favor.

I got to ask you

to let me go my way here.

Now, this truck

is my responsibility.

Now that the car's

hooked up to it,

I'm responsible

for that, too.

Any shit comes down now,

it's my ass.

Follow me?

Do you think

I'm stupid?

Answer me that first.

Then we'll talk.

Look, I don't know

nothin' about you.

You don't know nothin'

about me.

I don't know if you're

stupid or some kinda genius,

but I do know this.

I got to get out of here,

and you got the gun.
