One hand washes the other

one eye open when I sleep

one thing leads to another

one's sleeping six feet deep

two faces in the mirror

The two rights

erase the wrong

two choices,

which one's clearer?

What way do I run?

- Hey!

- Hey.

Um, listen.

I'm gonna take off.

Do you mind, uh...

do you mind locking the door

on... on your way out?

You aren't gonna buy me

breakfast, are you?


Uh... No.

I played cards

with the devil

I made a bet with a ghost

I made sure they'll never

find the cure

for a crooked soul

I played cards

with the devil

I made a bet with a ghost

I made sure they'll never

find the cure

for a crooked soul

Unh-unh. Unh-unh.


You are officially banned

after last night.

I mean, literally,

I can't even...

I can't even remember

last night.

You were up on stage.

- No.

- Yeah.

You gave a Russian guy

a lap dance,

- and he was not into it.

- What?

Like, really not into it.

I made sure they'll never

find the cure

for a crooked soul

I played cards

with the devil

I made a bet with a ghost

I made sure they'll never

find the cure

for a crooked soul

I see nothing

but black clouds

I'm in the eye of the storm

I been burning my tightrope

but I've got the beat

of the bones

in this town,

those dark waters

- Hey, how are you?

- Pretty good.

I will take a double

grey goose on the rocks, please.

What are you paying with?


There you go.

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- Hey.

- Hey!

Good. How you doing?

I'm good, Mr. Vincent.

Long time. How are you?

I gonna, uh... I was gonna

call you today.


Oh, I was hoping I'd find

37 grand in there for me.

Yeah, well, I-I do all

my banking online these days.

Listen, kid,

I just learned something

that kind of hurt my feelings.

Oh, yeah? What's that?

According to

a friend of mine down South,

your family has more money

than they know what to do with.

Well, my family and I,

we have parted ways.

That's why I borrow money

from you.

Card's declined.

Listen to me.

I know where you work.

I know where you live.

I know where you gamble away

money you don't have.

I know where you go

for probation.

I know the whole thing.

And if I don't have my money

by Friday 5:

I will find you and I will smash

your head wide open.

I have no problem doing that.

I made sure they'll never

find the cure

for a crooked soul


Mr. Wheeler

has continued to exhibit,

through a series of offenses...

D.U.I., resisting arrest,

criminal speeding, participation

in unlicensed gaming,

and now aggravated assault...

...That he is

combative, disruptive,

and has a general disregard for

simple rules and regulations.

He also seems incapable

of obeying the law.

Whoever wrote that just...

Just gets me.



So, that guy

and his thick-neck buddy

showed up again.

Said you weren't here.

All right. Thank you.

Hey, don't you have somebody

tied up in your basement

you need to go torture,

something like that?

Hey, man. You got no money

socked away? Nothing at all?

Does it look like I got

any money socked away, man?

What about your family?

Said your brother's getting

married next week, right?

- Yeah, I did. So what?

- So what?

So, get a tux

and fly to the party.

Everybody's happy and your old

man's checkbook's already open.


Listen, I think I can make it

to the wedding now.

Oh, that's great.

Oh, here.

Talk to your father.

Uh, no, mom.

Mom, I don't... mom!


Hey, dad.

Oh, Jay. How are you?

I-I-I'm well.

I-I-I-I'm well.

I've been following the, uh...

the merger talks in the news.
