You gotta have

x-rays taken.


"Surgeonly. "

If they come out good,

can I have a dozen of them?

- Oh, stop! Let's look in here.

- The first one.

Yeah, we'll start here.

- Open it up. Go ahead!

- Pardon us.

Excuse us, please.

You boys looking

for somebody?

Is the doc here?

Well, it's about time

you boys got here.

Where you guys been?

- Working.

- Doing what?

Shooting people.

Perfect day for it.

You mean you've already

shot somebody today?

We've got to make

a living, haven't we?

How'd you do it?

He just sticks 'em up

against the wall and shoots 'em.

Yeah, at the prices we charge

we can't be fussy.

Say, were you in

on the deal?

No, I was shooting a cop

down on the corner.

Hey, what do you charge

for shooting cops?



We make it free for the cops

because when we're shooting

other people, they never bother us.

Now let's get

this clear, boys.

With me, you've got to keep

the shooting down to a minimum.

The important thing is to stand

outside that bank across the street

and cover us

when we come out.

You want us to cover you

when you come out?

That's right. You boys are clear on

what you're supposed to get for this job?

Well, we charge everybody

the same... 25.


Hey, that's a little steep,

isn't it?

Well, how do you

figure that?

Lots of times

people come at us so fast

that we shoot the back of their

heads. We don't get nothing for that.

- Getting them in the back of the head don't count?

- Oh, no.

And if we don't do a good job

for you, we won't charge you.

- What time?

- Just when the bank's about to close.

Very, very good.

That gives me time to shoot a couple

of other people first.

Thanks a lot.

Those guys better hurry up.

The bank will be closed.

I know it.

Here they come now!
