- Goodbye.


- Room 27th

- Yes, I remember.

- You have no messages.

- How I prefer it.

The solitary type, eh?

There is a bell by the bed,

if you change your mind.

How much you weigh?



- You have committed the ultimate sin.

- Mom.

Regain your boss's confidence.

Your reputation depends on it.

- The family's reputation.

- Yes, mother.

He has probably found a competitor.

Someone who is better and younger.

It is probably true.

What do you think I should do?

There is only one thing you can do.

Ask the client for pardon.

Kill her,

and deliver your money back.

- You killed him.

- He was going to kill you.

- Okay, put yourself into.

- Keys.


- Will they really kill me?

- What am I doing?

Soon now the car.

Do not move out of the split.

Barney? Barney?

Do not say... Out. Now.


Face to the wall.

You both.

- Oh god. What have I done?

- Who are you?

- Who are you?

- Know ye not one another?

I washed cars.

I've never touched a gun before.

You would shoot him. Him and...

- Oh god. Is she...

- She just fainted.

Have you ever fired a gun?

Just give it to me.

- Do not do it. He shoots you.

- No, I do not.

You saved my life.

Why would I shoot you?

Do not do it.

Just put it from you

before someone gets hurt.

I give it to him.

He has tie.

- And then he just looked angry at me.

- I is not mad at you. In honor.

Clever boy. It was good.

What did I do?

You shoot actually quite good

for a beginner.

- You killed him not...

- I would not either.

So, I was angry at him.

It is quite understandable.

Afterwards I took it actually quite calm.

As if I had all sorts of time.

Excuse me a moment.

- What happened?

- I shot him. He is not dead.

The kid had no choice.

We have to save him.

Turns I killed him?
