I know my rights!

Ever see this guy before, Nash?

His name's Vazilek,

Polish national.

Had his head chopped off

in New Jersey two nights ago.

You ever get over

to New Jersey, Nash?

Not if I can help it.

You talk funny.

Where you from?

Lots of different places.

- You're an antique dealer, right?

- Mm-hmm.

Okay. What's that?

A sword?

Wise up, smart ass.

It's a Toledo-Salamanca broadsword

worth about a million bucks.


So you want to hear a theory?

You went down that garage

to buy this sword from that guy--

- What's his name?

- I don't know. You tell me.

Okay, his name's

lman Fasil.

You fought about the price

and cut off his head.

Want to hear another theory?

This Fasil was so upset...

about the lousy

wrestling tonight...

in a fit of depression,

he cut off his own head.

That's not funny, Walt.

Are you a faggot, Nash?

Why? You cruising

for a piece of ass?

I'll tell you

what happened, Russell.

You went down to the garage

for a blow job.

You just didn't

want to pay for it.

Huh. You are sick.

Hey! Hey!

Hey, what are you doing?


- What, are you crazy?

- Break it up, goddamn it!

That's enough!

Now, cut it out!

Goddamn it,

I said cut it out!

- Am I under arrest?

- Not yet.

Then we're through.

Nash, we're just

getting started.

...in water from the sprinkler.

It also left a man's

decapitated body...

next to his own severed head.

A head which at this time

has no name.

I know his name.

# Here I am #

# I'm the master

of your destiny #


# I am the one

The only one #

# I am the god

of kingdom come #

# Give me the prize #

# Just give me the prize ##

Okay, Mr. Victor Kruger.

Room 315.

And I'll hit you

for 20 in advance.

Uh, hey, uh.

If there's anything

you need--

Broads, uh, blow.

Just dial 0, huh?
