You're my brother. I'd kind of

like you to get my back.

Well, that's very nice

of you, but, uh,

I never really saw

myself as a cop.

I'm more like the bad guys.

I don't like rules very much,

and this sounds like

a nine-to-five thing.

I want the big score. I want

the brass ring, the pot of gold,

and then I wanna retire.

That's the American dream.

If I settle for nine-to-five

now, my life's over. That's it.

I never thought of it that way.

I'll find somebody else.

I promise, when I hit it big,

I'll retire you, okay?

Hold the bus!

Hold the bus!

Look, you are...

You are 21 years old, George.

Thirty comes awfully fast.

And if you are still loafing around

the world and bumming money from me...

when you are 30 years old...

I'm gonna be awfully

disappointed in you.

I always go in here

before I start my shift.

You want to come in?

Uh, maybe in a second.

I gotta make a phone call.


Hey, uh, Brad?

I'm sorry about some

of the things I said back there.

Come on.

When I was 21,

I probably thought

the same way.

I hope you get everything

you want, kid.

I may even be able

to give you some money.

God bless you.

- I'll pay you back.

- Right.

He's a pretty cool guy,

ain't he? Yeah.

After our parents died,

he got stuck with the thankless job...

of raising little ol' me.

I think he did

a pretty good job myself.

Now, about Maya and me.

Maybe I should give her a call.

In my note,

I, uh...

I told her she'd be

better off without me.

I don't know if that's so true.

I mean, I miss her.


You should have

taken the money.


Help me, George.

Help me.

Sir, you can't be in here.

You're going to

have to wait outside.

You George Kuffs?

I'm Captain Morino,

San Francisco P.D.

I'm in charge

of the patrol specials.
