I don't want him going over there

no more, that's what I want.

I know. He knows.

He knows.

I will go get him.

Yo, Nick.



Come on.

Get down.


Can Oleg stay?

Babe, it's already been

I am sure his mom would like

to have him home for a change.

It's OK. I am not even hungry.

I will see you tomorrow.

Go Razors.

You, go wash up.

Those hands are scary.

- Good night, Oleg.

- Good night, Mrs. Gazelle.

He's not even up there.

They turned the damn basement

into a sports complex again.


Come on, T, how many times

am I supposed to tell him?

Joe, what do you want?

They're just boys. They--

Dad, I won't do it again,

I swear.

Don't you expect me

to make book on that.

Now go get your grandfather.

I just washed my hands.

All right.

Hey, Nick.

Razors and Blues Friday night?

No way!

It's going to be a total deathmatch

between Chester and Erlich.

- They're going home in body bags!

- Red ice!

Hey... can Oleg come?

He's never been to one game, and--

No. No, not this time.

Sal can only score me

a pair of tickets.

Maybe next time, though.

Go get your grandfather.

Get up.

Get up.

Come on.

Come on, man.

Make it different this time.

Get up.

Get up.

I said, get up!

What is this?

Wolfgang Puck.

It's your favorite.

It's thick-crust...

you damn blyad.

I cut off crust for you.

It will be better.

Bring me another Moskova.



Come here.

Come here.


Watch this.

John Wayne in The Cowboys.

I don't like cowboys.

Come on.

It's the Duke.

Come. Sit.

When I was growing up

in Kishinev...

we had no VHS,

no DVD back then.

I remember...

I did a job for

this friend of my father.

I pickpocketed a key

off this apparatchik.

The man gave me as a reward...

this children's projector.
