That's it.

Hey! Let him go,

you fucking pigs!

Little J!

No! I'm not fucking around, man! Now!

Put that thing down!

You fucking heard me, man! Now!

You heard me!

Come on, come on. Let's go.


They're good people.

You'd like Little J.

He's a little shit, man, I'm telling you.

Skinny little f*ck.

He's growing, though. It's wild.

He's hard to keep fed.

That's a tough habit.


Hey, yo, wait up.

When'd you get out, man?

Just a couple short hours ago.

You on the streets,

or are you at home?

F*ck them, man. I haven't

been home since you got busted.

What the f*ck were you doing

back there, Little J?

What do you mean?

I was saving your fucking ass.

Don't ever pull a gun

on somebody again.

Get the f*ck off of me.

It's stupid.

It wasn't even loaded.

Well, that's even stupider.

Give it to me.



Where'd you find

this sissy piece of shit, anyway?

In the trash, man.

It don't even work.

Ah, it figures.

What the f*ck

did you do that for, man?

Your own good.

F*ck you!

I'm out of here.


I think you pissed him off, man.

Hey, Little J?


You want that tat still?

What do you think, man? I've been

waiting two months for the fucking thing.

Come on, then.

So how was jail, man?

Boring. Easy.

Did you suck any cocks?

Just your dad's.

And they're going into the stretch.

Manny goes for the whip,

makes a bid for the outside! Whoo!


Go ahead.


Run, motherfucker! Come on!


How do you get by on the street?


Excuse me, I thought

we just went all over that stuff

with the assault and the possession and

the loitering and all that petty stuff.

Give it up, motherfucker!

You guys have turkey potpie?

This is, uh, vegetable beef, and I'm allergic

to anything with lard in it, or, um...
