- We need some work.

- [man] And money.

- Shed loads of money.

- So I heard.

How much do you owe Irina,

in fact?

So you know about it, do you?

[chuckling] Yes.

She is making

rather a fuss, you know.


Is she? I can't imagine why.

[scoffs] I borrowed a little

from her at poker.

Nothing, really.

You know how it is.

[pound notes rustling]

[music ends]

[ominous music playing]

[shot glass shatters]

- Where is she?

- Get us some drinks, luv?

- Drink?

- Yeah. Get us a round of drinks.

- Yeah, you want?

- Yeah.

Okay. I get.

[people screaming]

[surf guitar music playing]

[door opens]

- [door closes]

- [engine revs]

Irina put a price

on your head.

You were aware of that,

I take it?

I never knew she cared.

Oh, I think we can both agree that

that just isn't true, is it, darling?

And as for you.

You're a very naughty boy.

I have a good mind to put you over my

knee and give you a very sound spanking.

But as it is, I do have a small amount

of opium that needs delivering.

Really? How small?

Oh, uh...

A comfortable amount.

- [Harry] We'll do it for 50.

- [Sidney] Thirty-five.


[sighs] I'm so weak.

Because I love you, Harry.

The, uh, usual method,

do you think?

Of course.


I'm not doing it.

Certainly not

for 40 fuckin' grand.

I mean it. I'm not doing it.


We need the money, darling.

I've had so many things

stuffed up my ass,

I might as well get a boyfriend

and move to San Francisco.

Don't be such a baby. It'll

be over before you know it.

Quite frankly,

we have no fucking choice.


Where is she?


I've not seen her in months.

Don't fuckin' lie to me.

I am not.

That bitch still owes me.


From a game in Hackney.

When you find her,

you can tell her that.
