You buyin'?

Uh, excuse me?

Parts. Car parts.

Oh, no, I'm... I'm working a claim.

Must be rough. Ain't no

love for the insurance man.

I think he's playing soc...

Standing up makes it worse.

You gotta sit down, buddy.

It's too high.

I still see it. It's, like, moving.

Here, grab onto me. Grab onto me!

I love my papa

and he takes me to, like, good places.

My favourite place to go when

it's my birthday is Aladassin.

It's a water park.

There's a hot tub, but when we

went there, it got closed down.

There's also a swimming pool,

and we like going right

where it falls onto us.

We just close our eyes and it's...

It was really fun.

I'm not sure what I'm

gonna do when I grow up.

My dad works in insurance, and he...

gives people insurance, like,

if something bad happens,

if somebody's house catches on fire,

then he will help them

get their house back,

if it was an accident.

And then they'll...

he'll give them money, so

they can rebuild their house,

and they can have their

happy life back again.

Or if they were just doing that

to get money away from

the insurance company,

then he would charge

them with fraud, I think.

I told you it was worth it.

You were right.

Say that again?


Teddy, come on, finish

your breakfast, buddy.

All right, come on,

guys. We're running late.

Teddy ready? Henry ready?

All right, let's go.

Don't be too hard on Henry.

Remember, he's already been punished.

Yeah, that didn't work last time.

Mommy and Daddy sitting

in a tree. K-I-S...

Henry, would you put

that down for a second?

I'm in the middle of a game.

Put it down.

I want you to apologize to Ms.

Grasseau for cheating, okay?

Why? I already got punished.

'Cause when we do something

wrong, we own up to it.

It's what you do when you're a man.

You wanna be a man, don't you?

Can I go back to my game now?

Pie, Daddy?

Like some? Oh, sure, thank you.

Your father says you're

a wonderful piano player.

Oh, I'm... really not that...

Don't let her modesty fool

you. Susan's very gifted.

Dad, can we go play Wii?

No, I think you guys have played

enough video games for the day...

Go ahead, boys. We'll save you some pie.

Thank you, Grandpa.

He just loves to piss me off,

always talking about

that private school,

like we can afford it.

I'm sure he'd help pay for it.


And he's always talking

about that loan as if...

I didn't ask him for the money.

He just gives us money.

Always just gives you money,

and then it's our money,

and I owe him that.

And honey... why... why would you...

Why would you tell him

about the promotion?

I was excited on the

phone. Maybe he guessed.

I don't know, what

difference does it make?

Because it's none of his business.

Well, he's all the family I have left.

I wish you two would get along better.





Okay, here it is.

Stay focused.

F***ing piece of f***ing sh*t!


Okay, your turn, buddy.

Here we go.

You got this.


Hasta la bye-bye, baby!

Uh... foot fault.


I crossed the line. My

toe crossed the line.

No, no, no, no, no, no.

Who calls a foot fault on themselves?

We lose now. You know

that, right? We lose.

Oh, he's a big boy.

Yes, you can. Yes, you can, my friend.


No, don't go that way! He's f***ed now.

Don't you like to see

these guys get away with it,

once in a while?

The size of this guy's sack.

He's got a dozen cops,

helicopter after him,

he's not giving up.

So what's your angle?

Excuse me?

The foot fault thing.

Throw the game, split the

winnings with the Mexican? What?

Jorge? He's Canadian.

Throw the game, split the

winnings with the Canadian?

Uh, no, we don't... we don't

even gamble on the games.

I'm... I'm sorry. No, it's okay.

I didn't mean to... It's okay.

Hey, you know what would be cool?

If I invented, like, a beer return,

and it's like a ball return,

but you put an empty beer in...

The machine is stuck again.

Dammit. I was in the zone here.

Whoa! What are you doing? Whoa!

Hey, hey!


Hey, get him off the lane!

Hey, f*** you, man, huh?

You know what, you're outta here!

F*** you, I paid for my games!

I have four frames left, you a**hole!

Hey, gents, calm the f*** down, okay?

All right, let's go for a walk. Come on.


I just gotta wipe the blood off.

You shouldn't serve alcohol.

Hey, I just wanted to

say sorry about Dave.

It's okay. Okay.

Thank you, man.

Thanks for that.

No sweat.

I'm Bill Scanlon.


Frank McTiernan.

He doesn't usually act like that.

He's been under a bit of pressure.

I don't make judgments.

Clean up messes.

Yeah, thanks again.

No problem. See you around.

See you around.

Hey, Bill. Hey, Larry.

Hello. Hey. Thanks for seeing me.

Sure, absolutely. Have a seat.



What can I do for you, today?

Well, check this out.

What's this?

This is from the Suburban

that was reported stolen.

Now, I went back through the records

and I found something

really interesting.

The VIN-number,

it doesn't match the one that

was in the original claim, so...

Bill, this case has been closed.

I mean, Bobby Diaz already

resubmitted the report.

Okay, um, well, there's

the McCormick residence.

I went back in and I

rechecked the electrical box,

and the fire department,

they confirmed with me that...


What are you doing, Bill?

I mean, you don't

even work here anymore.
