Alpha Dog

Synopsis: 1999, Claremont, California. Middle-class kids, in their 20s, talk trash, wave guns, hang out in a pack. Johnny Truelove, drug dealer and son of a underworld figure, threatens Jake Mazursky, an explosive head case who owes Johnny money; Jake responds by breaking into Johnny's house. On impulse, Johnny and a couple pals kidnap Jake's 15-year-old brother, Zach. Zach's okay with it, figuring his brother will pay the debt soon. Johnny assigns his buddy Frankie to be Zach's minder, and they develop a brotherly friendship. Zach parties with his captors as things begin to spin out of control. Group think, amorality, and fear of prison assert a hold on the pack. Is Zach in danger?

SONNY:
You want to know

what this is all about?

You could say

it's about drugs or guns

or disaffected youth,

or whatever you like.

But this whole thing

is about parenting.

It's about taking care

of your children.

You take care of yours,

I take care of mine.

INTERVIEWER:
I'm sorry,

I don't understand.

What does that mean?

That's all I have to say

about that subject.

Next question.

Your son

was a drug dealer?

A drug dealer? No.

Did he sell a little weed?

Yeah.

A little weed?

He was a major supplier

to the San Gabriel Valley.

I don't know

anything about that.

What about the D.A.'s

assertion that your son

got his marijuana from you?

And that you have ties

to organized crime?

What is this

amateur night bullshit?

This isn't an interrogation,

all right?

I'm a taxpayer

and I'm a citizen.

And you are a jerk-off.

Did I tell you that?

TIKO:
Come on, Johnny, I don't

let fiend jump in the alley.

If you don't give me

fucking 12 reps,

I'm fucking your mom

and your girl.

FRANKIE:
Tell him, Tiko!

What'd you say?

I couldn't hear you.

You say you want

to suck my cock, right?

First you got to grow one.

JOHNNY:
Shit, my dick's

so big it's got a knee.

(LAUGHING)

TIKO:
Five foot three,

hung like a flea.

F*ck, it's hot

out there.

What are you doing, Elvis?

Is it dark outside?

- What?

- I'm paying you

for a full day, right?

I've been here

since 10:
00 this morning.

(ALL EXCLAIMING)

F*ck that shit.

I asked you a question.

Do you see

the fucking moon, Elvis?

- It's definitely daylight.

- I'll show you my moon.

Johnny, I did everything

that you said.

The house is clean. I went

to the store. There's food

and beer in the fridge.

The wash is done. Adolf's fed.

The grass is cut.

It's all done, man.

Well, I guess

you shouldn't have

finished so fast, huh?

Shut the f*ck up.

- Never mind that.

Never mind that.

- Shut the f*ck up!

Get back to fucking work.

You want shit to do?

Go wash the floors.

Scrub out the toilets.

Or better yet,

pick up all the dog shit

in the backyard.

And if you finish too fast,

dump it out...

ALL:
And pick it

back up again.

- Party's over, man.

- Shut the f*ck up, Pick.

FRANKIE:
I can get you

a pooper scooper.

PICK:
Why are you so touchy?

- That's messed up, man.

- JOHNNY:
What?

When am I going

to get my money, Elvis? When?

I told you.

I get my check on Thursday.

All right. Well,

how much is the check?

I don't know.

It depends on the hours.

Well, how many hours

did you work, bitch?

I can't remember.

Fucking deadbeat, man.

Go on,

get the f*ck out of here.

The walk of shame.

The walk of shame, man.

Yo! What up, little B?

- What up, B?

- It's 911.

$8,500.

All of it, huh?

- Surprise, surprise.

- Yeah.

Okay.

So?

So I got this guy.

He wants five.

Plus my regular two.

So I figure

I'm going to need seven.

I don't know, B. I don't...

I don't like having

that much shit out.

I'm going to see my guy

on Monday and I'll clear you

right out, man.

He's good for it, Johnny.

You don't need to tell him

I'm good for it, man.

I'm not looking

for any fucking favors, J.T.

If it makes sense, do it.

If not, f*ck it.

All right.

We'll try it.

Where are you going, right?

TIKO:
That's what

I'm talking about.

But come Friday,

I don't want to hear

any fucking stories.

You won't.

SONNY:
Be ready, be ready.

Soft hands, right?

Soft hands.

Nice. Nice.

That's major league stuff

right there, baby.

Grab a bat,

and I'll throw you a couple.

- Hey.

- Hey.

What do you say, Tarzan?

I need seven.

Seven?

- Seven? Who?

- Bobby "911".
