What's going on in there?

So, how many is this, then?

Don't know. 10?

12, what, couple of years?

Two years, four months, eight days.

Well be sorry to see you go.

There'll be plenty of other blokes.

Nah, not with your track record.

Every one a winner.

No witnesses, no GBH, no worries.

Beauty. Got one.

The races are over, spaz.

Footy game tonight.

I can see the score.

Where you going tonight?

Hotel. Coogee Bay, I reckon.


You going to stick around for a bit?

Couple of weeks, see some old mates.

I have been thinking about Adelaide.

Oh, yeah?

Yeah. I like it down there.

Clean, dry.

It's shit as.

As soon as Frank gives us the money,

Im getting the first plane to...

Gold Coast.

What about you?

You going to find

that place in the country?

Yeah. Get ourselves organised,

start having a look.

Come on.

Copper, copper

What's the colour of a two-cent piece?

Copper, copper

of a two cent piece?

All coppers are cunts

All coppers are cunts

All coppers are cunts

What's the colour

of a two cent piece?

Copper, copper.


Sorry to keep you waiting. You know.


Fucking nightmare.

Now, I need you guys

to sign here and there.

Let's have a little look, eh?

What's going on?

Well, fellas,

there's been a bit of a hitch.

We're going back inside?

it's for your own protection.

You guys will need an alibi.

Now, you've been here with us

all day.

Why do we suddenly need an alibi?

Serious Crime's got involved, Dale.

The driver saw your face,

gave a perfect description.

You've fucking had him in here,

haven't you?

You prick.

This has been a line-up, fellas.

Don't get paranoid, sport.

it's just a precaution.

Remove you from the picture

for two days while it blows over.

The Governor signed
