-What's going on?

-I didn't think you could count.

Look, Jaime, we take the risks.

Pay us more.

Are you saying I don't take risks?

I never said that.

So take a walk then.

Get lost.

But if you're interested

in a bigger cut...

I may have something for you.

I know this forger...

his copies are almost identical.

These bills are kind of funny.

How do I know they're not fake?

Tell me if you see a difference.

I don't pay my debts with forgeries.

Are you kidding?

Take a look.

These are fakes.

They're identical.

Look closer.

Look at what?

Garavito's left ear.

The fucker put an earring on the guy!

-Can I keep this one?


I need you to bring me the real bills.

Okay, fine.

But no guns.


Hey, Jaime, take it easy!



You thought I'd give you guys a real gun?

You kids aren't ready for that.

You think it's funny?

-See you later.


Hey, Maicol!

He's headed your way.

Go ahead, jerk.

Don't let me down.

Shut up!

Don't move.

Take it easy...

The briefcase, old man...

There is only paper

in the briefcase.

I will put a hole in your head.

Really? With water, asshole?

-Who are you calling an asshole?

-You, asshole!

Let's go.

Maicol, come on!


Fresh, this is a lot of money, man.

It's over, man.

You think too much, Bro.

-This guy was probably a total idiot.

-What does that make us?

We're idiots too...

but not quite as bad.

I'm tired of this shit!

I don't wanna be a fucking thief

the rest of my life.

You're in the wrong business.

Open your eyes.

Doggy, we can make good money

without beating anybody up.

Believe me.



What do we have to do?


It only took you 12 seconds to open

that big mouth of yours.

You have to learn to breathe.

Stop being so antsy.
