He lives.

He lives!

Look, you cannot be cynical

and expect to have

any kind of success

in this world or any other,

especially if you

claim to be an artist.

I'm tired... sick and tired

of cynical artists.

Ronaldo's here.

Uh-oh, my liver

just had a heart attack.

Hey, if you need anything else,

I'd be happy to pick it up

for you in the morning.

This is her.

God, so pretty.

- She's all grown up, Ron.

- It's crazy, huh?

Hey, um, is she

getting cock yet?

I pray for your soul, Richard.

You cannot pray

for a soulless man.

Oh, yeah? Ronaldo,

let me ask you this.


When your 16-year-old daughter's

hot friends come by,

do you ever think about

what it might be like

to f*ck 'em in the ass

till they're cross-eyed?

- I told you! See? See?

- Shut the f*ck up.

- Pass the blow.

- Told you.

Jesus, some things

never change, huh?

Hey, hey, I merely say

what others think...

- Mm-hmm.

...but fear to say.

You want some, honey?

No, don't tell Mommy.

Oh, my God, look at this.

It's the first time in the history of

Internet real estate photography

the place is as big

in real life

as it was online, huh?

It's beautiful, Ron.


Let me know when you

want to settle up.

It's already settled.

The rich are different

from you and me, Timothy.

Thank you, Ron.

We've always been different.

I love you.

You're welcome, by the way.

Oh, thank you.

Thank you, thank you.

- I was there!

- You were not there.

- You weren't there.

- Of course I was there.

- I popped my head out...

- I'm the guy that gets busted.

- You get busted...

- I'm the guy.

I pop my head out...

'cause all I wanted...

- I ran off.

...to let you know,

'cause I was gonna

bail you out,

so I said,

"How much for bail?"

And he looks at me

and he goes, "That's him.
