2 Guns

Synopsis: Robert Trench, an undercover DEA agent, takes advantage of gunman Michael Stigman's idea to rob a bank to bust him and a mob boss. However, it proves too successful with much more money seized than anticipated with Trench's forces not stopping the getaway. Complicating things still more, Stigman turns out to be a Naval Intelligence agent who shoots Trench and takes the money. The interservice debacle suddenly finds Trench and Stigman in a bloody web of corrupt clandestine rivalries as they are hunted, blackmailed and isolated for the money on both sides of the law. Now, the fugitives must work together to find a way out of this situation with no one to turn to but themselves.

- Hi.

- Hi.

How many?


Listen, I wanted to get a safe deposit box.

Can you do that for me?

Okay. Your box

will be available

any time from

an hour after opening

to 30 minutes before close.

This is your key.

Thank you.

Oh, um, also, if you open

a checking account,

we'll give you 5% off the box along

with free overdraft protection.

Oh, here I was hopin'

for a free toaster.

Why would a bank give out free toasters?

Hello, Ma.

I'm ordering you

the French toast.

No, thank you.

Our very patient waitress,


well, at least it says

Maggie on her name tag,

has asked me

to order four times.

If I don't order at this

point, it's just rude.

I can come back.

No, it's okay.

You know what? I'm making

an executive decision.



No pancakes. I don't like pancakes.

No pancakes.

What are you,

a communist?

My friend'll have the

pancakes and a fried egg.

I'm thinkin' hash, but only if

it's like chunky style, okay?

Listen, if you order me eggs and

pancakes, I'm gonna kick your behind.

But you gotta eat breakfast.

It's the most important meal of the day.

Uh, ma'am, ignore

everything he said, okay?

Don't bring me any

eggs and pancakes.

Just bring me some coffee and

bring him a couple eggs.

I don't want eggs.

I want hash.

You know what,

put a couple eggs on it.

Give him some

rye toast, too.

No rye toast for me.

I don't like rye toast.

And a pancake.

No pancakes.

Maybe a little silver-dollar one.

You got the little baby ones?

No pancakes, no silver dollars, no rye toast.

I like pumpernickel.

I do have pumpernickel.

Pumpernickel toast.

- Hey, Maggie, wait. One more thing.

- Yeah.

That's for you. You take that with

you till we see each other again

in case you miss me

too much, okay?

Why you gotta do that? What?

Wink at the waitresses

like that?

Waitresses like me.

Nobody likes you.



What do ya got?


it is a sleepy bank.


That's correct.

I told you.

That is

a lot of doughnuts.

I'll be right back

with your hash.

Maggie, your hot homemade

doughnuts, they any good?

Best in three counties. BOBBY:

I'll tell you what you do.

You bring us three

of those bad boys.

Put 'em in a to-go box

for us, all right?

All right.

Thank you.

All right,

time to make the move.

All right, there's gonna be

some sirens in this b*tch.

I'm gonna go

shake the weasel.

Shake the weasel.

Gonna go shake the weasel.

Hey. Good morning, sir.

How are you? Morning.

Hey, Maggie.

I'm very sorry

about my friend.

He was kicked in the

head as a child.

He's really not that bad.

No, he is.

What's goin' on?

Okay, I'm just gonna have

you all exit the building.

It might be a false alarm,

but just do it safely.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Is everybody out? I'm gonna

need you to step outside.

All right, Maggie, I'm

just gonna grab my friend.

Okay. We gotta pay our bill.

We should go.

Is that all you're

gonna leave for a tip?

It's 15%.

You leave 15%.

No, you gotta

leave at least 30.

No, you don't.

15% is standard.

My Maggie's about to be out of a job, man.

Don't be cheap.

Okay, there's five.

That's seven.

There you go.

Come on.

All right.


No, you didn't.

Yes, I did.

Oh, my God.

How'd you say it?

Never rob a bank

across from the diner

with the best doughnuts

in three counties?

That's correct.

Bobby. Papi's down

in the stables.

Why don't

you get somethin' to eat?

I'm not hungry.

Sure you are.

I wanna come with you.

Hey, listen. We're here to do business.


Well, I can be diplomatic.

You can be hungry,

too, right?


Wait here.



sittin' here?

Little Toro.

Oh, well, you move your feet,

you lose your seat, right?

Lose your head, too.

That's correct.

So, where is Little Toro?

Alli, where you put him.

- Aqui?

- Alli.

Let's play some dominoes.

Papi's ready.


Papi Greco!

"I-know-a-guy" Bobby.

That's correct.

Quick, an ostrich, a tank of

ether, a '63 Impala convertible.

Make it a '64.

My side

of the border.

I know a guy.

What did I tell you? He never

says no, never says maybe,

never says, "I'll

see what I can do."

Nice bull.

I hope

he's a good breeder.

That's a shame

about Little Toro.

Julio caught him



That don't sound

like Little Toro.

Is that for me?

That's correct.

Everybody skims a little cream.

It's human nature.

Just 'cause it's human

don't mean you let it go.


Nice lines. Good color.

That's right.

He knows a guy.

What you got

for me?



Supposed to be givin'

me 100,000 to deal.

Why didn't you give me

$100,000 worth of cocaine?

Where's the cocaine?

My buyer wants cocaine.

So let him buy cocaine.

That's what he's tryin' to do.

He's trying to buy cocaine.

I told him I knew a guy,

therefore I come to you.

You the guy I know.

That's why I told him.

So take back

the passports.

After Little Toro, we're not

takin' on any new customers.

Well, no disrespect,

but I ain't no new customer.

You been dealin' with me

for a long time.

You keep the passports.

Keep the money, too.

When you're ready to give me the

product, give me the product.

Till then...

You owe me.

It's not

very sporting, man.

At least give the chickens

a chance to shoot back.

Hey, man, I'm just sayin'. If I'm

gonna kill a defenseless animal,

I'm gonna honor its sacrifice by

grilling it into some tasty barbecue.
