I want the guys who got him.

You know who did it?

I can't prove it.

I think it's a local outfit stealing Porsches.

They're operating out of a repair shop.

My moneys on the owner, | a guy named Ted Varrick.

I got a snitch working in the place. | He can get somebody in.



Why me?

'Cause you're a mechanic...

and you're a rookie.

You won't act like a cop.


He was a friend of yours, wasn't he?

How old are you, son?


You still living at home?


You don't have to prove anything...

not to me.

I'll do it.


Okay. Bill Ayles.

Hi, I'm Bill Ayles.

How you doing?

Don't forget, a**hole.

You guys make sure I know | what you do with the tire gun.


- Danny, how you doing? | - Bill.

You better have your sh*t together.

I promised the customer's car today, | so I want it.

I'll be back by 4:00.

You're a smart guy. Right answer.

- What? | - This is Bill Ayles.

- Good for him. | - This is the mechanic I was talking about.

How you doing?

How long will it take you to change | the fuel distributor on this SC?

Book says four hours. | I can do it in three. Maybe two.

You charge by the book or hours worked?

Depends on the customer.

This guy says it's running rough, | getting lousy gas mileage.

Says he wants a tune-up. | You got a couple hours?

How about a couple minutes?

Just reach in and adjust the sensor plate. | Sounds a little low.

Try it for a couple days.

00 to 5:00. And I mean, 8:00, not 8:01. | One hour for lunch.

$14 an hour to start.

- When? | - Right now. Give him a jumpsuit.

Okay, now, no loud music.

No open-door parties.

Last thing I need is the cops.

Youll love it here.

Weve got a real family atmosphere.

The sofa was just re-covered.

Carpets less than a year old.

You the decorator?

I got a real eye for color.
