Tango & Cash

CASH:

Hi.

So, you don't know any English?

I don't know Chinese, so we'll have to

give you a crash course.

But I got a feeling

you'll be a quick learner.

Come here. Sit down.

This is lesson number one.

The next lessons get harder.

Who hired you?

I think he's one of Quan's men.

I don't know his name.

I swear!

Look at that, flattop.

You're speaking like a native already.

OFFICER:
What is this?

CASH:
English 101.

Your scumbag lawyer

won't be here for a while.

Is there anything you want to share?

A deal. Tonight.

...Front Street. 9:00.

Very good.

My compliments.

Pretty good for your first lesson.

Don't forget to wash your hands.

SCHROEDER:

Ray?

There's a big bust going down,

TANGO:
Is that reliable?

SCHROEDER:
Yes. A phone tap.

TANGO:
Fantastic.

SCHROEDER:
What is this?

SCHROEDER:
Downtown clown

versus Beverly Hills wop.

- All the news that's fit to print.

- I don't get you.

You make a shitload of money.

Why do you do this?

Action.

Good old American action.

If you want to stare death in the eye,

get married.

Is that a proposal?

PERRET:

Gabriel Cash.

How many millions?

How many?

How many this time?

PERRET:

Oh, God!

PERRET:

Ray Tango!

PERRET:

He loves to dance.

PERRET:

He waltzes in and takes all my drugs...

...and then Tangos out again.

I've had enough.

Too much television...

...can hurt your eyes.

Now do you see why we can't kill them?

No.

LOPEZ:

I do not see.

It would be much quicker.

And easier.

Quicker...

...and easier.

That's how you make a cake.

Or clean a toilet bowl, or shop...

...by mail.

But it's not how to run a

multi-million-dollar business like ours.

Mr. Quan.

On the east side...

...your part of the city...

...Gabriel Cash...

...has cost me $60 million...

...including guns, drugs and other
