The Mexican

Synopsis: Jerry Welbach is given two ultimatums. His mob boss wants him to travel to Mexico to get a priceless antique pistol called "The Mexican" or he will suffer the consequences. The other ultimatum comes from his girlfriend Samantha, who wants him to end his association with the mob. Jerry figures that being alive, although in trouble with his girlfriend is the better alternative so he heads south of the border. Finding the pistol is easy but getting it home is a whole other matter. The pistol supposedly carries a curse - a curse Jerry is given every reason to believe, especially when Samantha is held hostage by the gay hit man Leroy to ensure the safe return of the pistol.

I accepted the potato slicer

for our anniversary.

Right, sweets? I go along.

That's it. That is it.

You... You... You go along!

You don't want to get married.

And this is the way you deal with it!

Huh? You're back to

the same old selfish,

self-involved, vile, disgusting...

- Oh, God. You are...

- ..self!

You're missing the grand design here!

If I don't go, I'm dead.

Yeah. And it's difficult

to have a relationship

if I'm stuffed with formaldehyde.

- Now, if anyone is being selfish...

- Oh! Now you blame-shift?

- You are blame shifting?

- Stop analyzing!

I'm calling a time-out!


All right...

Jerry, I want you to acknowledge...

that my needs mean nothing to you

and you're selfish.

- Oh, my God!

- Jerry, acknowledge.

I... OK.

I will acknowledge that I promised

I would go to Vegas with you.

But now we're just slightly delayed.

If you want to construe my wanting

to stay alive as being selfish, OK.

I have every intention of going with

you. Your needs are important to me.

Come on. Look at all my stuff here,

all over the pavement.

Come on, baby. Huh?

What do you say?


I'm going with or without you, Jerry.

What's it gonna be?

- A bastard!

- A bastard.

What happened to, uh,

"sweetheart" and "big love"?

All those things

you called me last night?

The only thing I'm interested

in calling you is a cab!

(Singing in Spanish)

(Automated telephone

instructions in Spanish)

Excuse me, speak English?

Excuse me, you speak English?

- (Speaking Spanish)

- What?

All set, Mr. Welbach.

If you go to the front,

a shuttle will take you to your car.

- What kind of car is it?

- It's a Chrysler. Brand-new.


Is there a problem, Mr. Welbach?

You know, it's my first trip

to Mexico and...a Chrysler?

I mean,

I drive a Chrysler in America.
