Can somebody get that'!

James, grab the phone!

Lewis's Auto.

Yeah, I'm James Kelly.

Yeah, well, I thought it was

your mandate or whatever...

to support small business with loans.

Yeah, no, I understand.

Nah, man, I don't have a degree.

And I don't really

see how that matters much.

Yeah. Yeah, all right.

All right, all right.

Thanks for your time, man.



Hey, Joe! I got this one.


James Kelly.

I thought you moved away after Katrina.

I did, but soon as I could get work,

I came back.

Oh, yeah? What do you do'!

Pm a dispatcher is: the NON).


- What, so you're like a cop or something'!

- No, I'm not a cop.

I'm a glorified operator.

That's cool.

You kind of disappeared.

Yeah, yeah. No, I know.

I went traveling.

I was traveling abroad for a little bit,

you know.

Really? 'Cause I thought maybe

you got abducted by aliens...

or started working for the CIA or,

I don't know, went to prison.

Actually, yes.

I used to be a secret agent for the CIA.

But on very top secret missions.

But that was a long time ago and

I don't want to talk about it anymore.

Come here for a second.

- You live nearby?

- Not far.

- Got a garage at your place?

- Sure.

Look, this...

this shop, it's, you know, too high priced.

If you want,

I could just fix your car at your place...

and you don't gotta pay me for my time.

I'll pass along new parts at cost

and I'll save you a couple bucks.

That is very sweet of you.

Least I could do.

So this guy goes to prison

and they lock him down in a cell.

Two-man room.

He looks in and he

sees there's a big 350-pound black guy...

just sitting there mean-muggin' him.

Black guy says, "Say, man

you wanna be the mama

or you wanna be the daddy?"

The guy says, "Excuse me?"

He said, "Did I stu-- stu-stutter,


I say, 'You wanna to be the mama

or you wanna the daddy?

Guy says, "Well, I'll be the daddy."

He said, "Fine. You the daddy."

Come over here and

suck on mama's dick.

Come on, Jim. Come on, man.

It's been 10 years.

You can do better than that, no?

You got some fucking balls

showing up here, man.

What's the matter, Jimmy'!

I came to see you.

You didn't come to see me.

Whatever happened to me

and you against the world, huh'!

- You want to know what happened, Frankie?

- Yeah, what happened?

- You want to know what happened'!

- Yeah, what happened?

Yeah'! I'll tell you what happened.

You fucking turned the world against me.

You still crying about that?

That's life, buddy. Shit ain't fair.


Hey, all right, all right, all right!

Don't act crazy, come on.

I'm sorry, man. I'm sorry!

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

Ah, shit, Jimmy.

Shit, Frankie.

Let's go get a drink, huh'!

Come on, let's go grab a drink.

I can't tonight.


- You're prompt.

- I like to keep my appointments.

Not what I recall.
