Bunch of pricks.

You okay?

I'm fine.

Let's go to the Dead Dog.

We still got another hour.

Uh-uh, mm-mm,

won't go back there.

Not since that pervert

attacked me in the bathroom.

We ran that guy off.

I'm gonna tap out, buddy.

Told Kelly

that I would take it easy.

You serious?

Why don't you

ride with me, man?

Just take the couch.


Gonna have to pass.

Last thing I want

is to wake up at 6:00 AM

to watch SpongeBob

with your kids.


- Hey,

- [engine starting]

You wrap your car

around a tree,

I'm not gonna

feel guilty.

Neither am I.

[car engine revving]


[indistinct] dollar signs

In their eyes

And I'll tell you what

I ain't got a dime

[engine starting]


[indistinct] but I'm way

Past my prime

[engine revving]

[tires screeching]

[police siren wailing]

Go get 'em, boys.

- [Officer Burke] Come on, Mike.

- I'm fine.

I just need

to get some coffee.

Like hell. You smell like

a damned distillery.

The only asshole

drunker than you

might be this guy

right here.

[siren squawks]

[Officer Burke] I don't know

what's wrong with you, Mike,

but you could be

a good cop.

I am a good cop.

Turn off your engine.

Stay in the car.

- I can do the job.

- Hey.

You step one foot

outside this vehicle,

and I'm reporting your ass.

[sighs] Kendall,

I really like you, but...

Come on out, buddy.


[Mike] Shit.


Officer down,

code three.

I repeat,

officer down,

code three.

[indistinct radio chatter]

[train horn blowing]

Ooh, boy.

[keys jingling]

[car engine revving]

[upbeat music playing]


She's [indistinct]

She's [indistinct]

[tires screeching]

[suspenseful music playing]

[engine revving]

[distant siren wailing]

[indistinct chatter]


[Scott] Mike.
