Wait a minute.

The Krishna died | of a broken finger?

I mean, is that a homicide?

Well, I guess | he died of shock.

Well, it hurts like hell...

to have your finger | bent back.

My sister used to do it | to me when I was a kid.

Yeah, but you didn't die.

Now, if this | was an accident...

it would be | simple assault, right?

However...if the guy | in the suede sport coat...

knew that Krishnas | had a bad habit of dying...

every time you bent | their finger back...

-Murder one? | -Yeah.

Well, the guys | at the station...

are going to laugh | their asses off...

Your turn to notify | next of kin.

No way! I did the fat lady | that sat on a kid.

That's good for 2.

Next week?

I'll be retired by then.

Ah, shit.

Well, you try the hotels.

See if anyone got off | one of their courtesy vans...

wearing a suede sport coat.

Ah, shit.

This is good here.

Oh, excuse me.

Maybe we should try | in here.

All right.

Price check. | Uzi squirt gun.


What's up?

Got something for me?

I got the goods.


In the bag. Now!

Up against the wall. Now!

Be cool, brother.

Hey, he's got a gun!

Let's get out of here!

Move it!

Give me a day's notice | before it runs out, OK?


Tell me Tuesday.

Looky, we got | a million dollars.

We got a million... | Brazilian dollars.

Absolutely worthless.

"That's a lot | of money, man.

"That's a lot of | fucking money.

"I don't think you are | a Porsche customer...

"Mr. Frenger.

"I don't think you really | want to buy a Porsche.

Do you want to buy | a Porsche?"

No, man! I'm here | to waste my time.

How much for | the speedboat, man?

"Oh, the speedboat is | very expensive, sir.

That speedboat is $50,000."

Wrap it up, man.

Yeah. The bellman said...

some guy matching | the description...

got off a courtesy van. | Registered. Yeah.
