Scruffy Manc cunts.

You had a good time then?

Yeah, we kicked their fucking heads in.

It was classic.

But I was a mug.

Here I was with a girl

who really loved me,

and you know the last time

I said the words "I love you"

was to Eddie after five pints

down at a boozer in Canning Town.

And then suddenly

I get this job offer out of the blue.

Turns out that Smalls nightclub is

looking for a new doorman.

They've been having

all kinds of trouble

from some local firm

and they wanted someone

with a bit of weight

to keep the peace.

What I'm trying to create here is

what they call an environment.

Now you could usher the nice-looking

birds to the front of the queue.

That's always a good start.

If you get the nice-looking birds,

then the geezers wanna

spend their money.

You following me, Carlton?

Yeah yeah.

So, what we talking about,

say 40 nicker a night?

Is that good with you?

Yeah, people tried it on,

but everybody got

what they came for.

If you turned up looking

for a drink and a couple of birds,

that's what you got.

But if you came in

for anything else,

well, you'd end up

with my fist in your face.

And if you came back with

your little army wrapped around you,

well, I'd just have

to get my metal bar out.

And if I caught you

noncing in the toilet, well,

I won't think twice about stabbing you

up the ass with a knife.

You see, when someone's

out to make a name for themselves,

you have to rip 'em so hard

that they never want to get up again.

Now this may seem

a little bit harsh,

but in my world kindness is

mistaken for weakness.

I want to talk to you.

I think there's a couple

of doormen on the take.

I'm losing

over 200 quid a week

and the only person who I know

ain't on the fiddle is you.

So what are you saying?
