about the armed and desperate.

Well there's going to be

an extra five per cent

to cover my shock

at having a World War II pistol

pointed at my genitalia.

Yeah, righto.

Listen, dickhead.

You're going to have to be

a bit more cooperative

with people

whose money you've nicked.

Now I've taken the ten grand

out of the dishwasher.

And I reckon there's, what...

..another seventy in

the air conditioning vent?

I s'pose.


Well, sign here for the rest of it.

And the biro.

Pleasure doing business with you.


You're not going, are ya?


Here you go.

Just in case you get lonely.

Mate, you can't leave me in here.

Oh, come back, will ya?

I can't get out of here!

(VOICEMAIL) You've called Jack Irish.

Leave a message.

Jack. It's Danny.

I'm in the car park, mate.

Are you coming?

Christ, help me.

Oh, thank God.

I can see your lights flashing.


You have four new messages.

Jack, Harry Strang.

Sorry about your little mix-up

with Dollery.

Anyway, no harm done.

Listen, I got something

I need you to do.

(Machine beeps)

Jack Irish,

it's Danny McKillop, mate.

You know, the hit-and-run

ten years ago?

Look, I'm out now, mate,

but I'm in a bit of strife,

so you reckon

you might give me a call?

It's 0491570110.

Tonight... as soon as you get this.

(Machine beeps)

Jack, it's Danny again, mate.

You... you didn't call.

Um... listen mate. I'm in deep shit.

I think I'm being followed.

Do you reckon you could come

and meet me, 7:
00 tonight?

I'm in the car park of

The Hero of Trafalgar in Brunswick.

(Machine beeps)

Jack, it's Danny.

I'm in the car park, mate.

Are you coming?

Christ, help me.

Oh, thank God.

I can see your lights flashing.

(Machine beeps)
