Look, time's a-wasting here, Snowman.

You want to breed

or listen to my proposition?

Bring Fred, the truck and anything else

that looks nice down to the pit.

I appreciate you two dropping by

and trashing up my moment of glory.

You want the money or the glory?

I'd like to have them both,

but I got this problem.

Let me guess.

You don't know where the Bandit is?

We got us a winner.

Yeah, my mind went blank.

Let me jiggle your memory bank a little bit.


Well, the clouds are parting a little.

- $200,000. You take it or leave it.

- Would you believe I just got total recall?

Here's the deal. You go down and pick up

this package on a Miami dock...

and deliver it to the governor of Texas.

- The governor of Texas?

- That's right.

Strictly legit.

- And you're Wilt Chamberlain.

- That's right.

Listen, this whole thing is legal.

I'll stake my reputation on that.

His, too.

- That makes me feel a whole lot better.

- There's one thing bothers us.

We heard talk of the Bandit slipping.

"Gone into the shithouse"

is the exact phrase we heard.

May I tell you boys something?

He is in better shape now...

than he's ever been in his life, trust me.

Hey, Bo.

Bo, you all right?

Cledus, you've gotten taller.

Yes, and you've gotten drunker.

This place looks like a shithouse.

- Want to sit down? Sit there.

- Come on, Bo.

What've you got on?

Come on, here.

- Is that you, Cledus?

- Yeah, it's me.

- You dropped my watch.

- I know it. Come here.

Sit down.

- Your timing is just rotten.

- Look.

I'm gonna make us a lot of money.

$200,000. Look.


Big and Little Enos are out there,

and they got $200,000.

I need you to be straight

for three minutes. Can you manage...

That's good enough. Come on.

Come here. $200,000.
