Sir, you might

have to step aside.

Just tell her it's

daily tongue-scraping

and anti-bacterial


which will assure her

the freshest breath.

See this right here?

This is a nickel-plated Ladysmith

nine Mary-Mary chrome inlay. Go on,

- feel that.

- It's got a nice weight to it.

- Yeah, so do you, baby.

- What?

- Oh, shit!

- Oh, hold up... that's a cop car!

Get your ass off my car, Booty!

Come on!

Your ass is still

on my car, Booty!

Run faster, Booty!

Pump those arms! Get those knees up!

- Your form is all jacked up, dawg!

- What you want, man?

- I want to buy some guns!

- I don't know

- what you're talking about!

- I'm talking about a telephone pole.


Why do we have

to do this every time?

It's these repetitive ass-whippings

that cause guys like me

- to burn out on the job.

- Du... ah-ha... ah!

Somebody wiped out

our vault last night. Who was it?

- How the hell should I know?

- I'm gonna check the front of my car.

If it smells like ass, I'm gonna

beat you like a runaway slave.

No no, all right,

all right, all right.

- All right what?

- Maybe I heard something.

Tell me what you heard.

Something about a lot

of merchandise in play. That's all.

Ooh. You know

how I can tell you're lying?

I can smell the bullshit

coming out of your mouth.

No, all right!

Maybe I know one of the guys, huh?

Well, hook me up.

Tell him you found a buyer.

Oh, man, he already got

a buyer. You're too late.

Tell him I'll double his price.

I can get 20 grand cash right now.

20 grand? Man, that'll only

get you a taste, dawg.

A taste is all I need.

Hook me up. Now.

- $38.50.

- That was very nice drive in, Mr., uh...

- is it Bedwetter?

- Bedwe-teer.

I see you're from

Turkey, Mr. Budweeder.

I've got $20, $40.

There you go. Keep the change.
