We made it.

Tell me again.

I need to hear you say it.

Is it all gone?


All ninety two American dollars.

You sure?

We could go back

and find the thugs.

How many pancakes can we

get with ninety two dollars?


Ninety two at least.


Come on.

You wanna get fat like them?

Maybe you can apply

for a job here.

Alice, where are we going?

Alice, we are in America.

The police here don't

know anything about what

happened in Fujian.




Ken, no!

Are you throwing those away?


Come on!

Eat, Alice.

It's free.

Where do you think dad is now?

Alice, cheer up.

Soon we'll be

swimming in hot tubs.

And eating strawberry

pancakes for breakfast.

Before we know it, we'll have

the money to bring dad here.

Ken, it's a market,

like at home!

Excuse me.

Do you think we can set up here?

Uh, yeah, sure.

You can set up right there.

Thank you.

There are no more appointments,

Mr. Sullivan.

Do you need anything else?

No, thank you.

Do you want me to bring

you some lunch before I go?

Oh, no, no, that

won't be necessary.

I only have a few calls to make.


Such a lovely day.


I'll see you on Monday,

Mr. Sullivan.


Oh, have a good weekend.

[telephone rings]



My sister is a real

famous painter from Asia.

Anyone wanna buy her paintings?

Wanna buy some paintings, sir?

Wanna buy my sister's paintings?

They're from Asia.

Wanna buy her paintings, ma'am?

Hey man, wanna buy some


Don't touch me!

Ken, what are you doing?

Come on.

I told you I don't

want to fight anymore.

[girl in crowd:

She schooled him!]

[crowd laughs]

[crowd applauses]

Good job.

I'm sorry, we're open

by appointment only.

You're Justus Sullivan?


Marcus Gillani.

Mr. Gillani.

I am surprised we

have never met before.

Of course, I have heard

a great deal about you.

And of course, your

magnificent collection.

I hear you're the type

of guy who can give

me something special?


I can help with that.

Look at this, Alice.

We're filthy rich.

Come on!

Let's celebrate with

strawberry pancakes!


Give me the bag!


Oh, thank God.


Are you okay?

Go get him!

Give her purse back!

Let me take care of him.

Just let him go.

Take it, take it.

I'm sorry.

I'm gettin' out of here.

Thank you so much, officers.

So, you'll be sure to...

Come to the station tomorrow

morning, first thing and look

at mug shots.


Oh, I'll be there with bells on.

Don't worry.

They won't be back.

You heard me tell them that some

kids chased away the thugs.

Hispanic kids!

Go sit down.

I'm gonna go get the food.

Ken, let's go.

Not a chance.

If the police find me...

No way.

I'm staying right here.

Alice, stop worrying.


I don't mess around

in the kitchen.

This is the biggest burger

I've seen in my life.

It's like a cow died on a plate.


Alice, you are in for a treat.

Shove over, you.

Oh, are you a vegetarian?

Well, what the heck

are you waiting for?

Dig in!


This is the best

hamburger in America.

You guys were sure hungry!

I bet you two came

in that containership.

Am I right?


You saved my life.

You can trust me.

Can we help you

clean up the dishes?

Do you kids have

a place to stay?

Yes, with some relatives.

My ass, but, nevermind.

We probably should go.

Thank you so much for dinner.

Should I call you a cab?

No, we like to walk.

Me too!

I was on my way home...

We'll walk with you!

Oh, that would be s'well!

I guess I'm starting

to feel a little...

Oh, I don't know.

That was really

something wasn't it?

The way you two

just slammed him.

Do you think you could meet

me here every night until they

catch that guy?


What time?

30 p.m.

30, if you want a burger.

Oh, great.

Come on.

It's just down this way.

Oh, you have no

idea how happy I am.

Asian girl.

Maybe in her early thirties.

Shot in the chest.

Washed up here a

couple hours ago.

Maybe, three or four

days in the water.

Anything else?

Let me take a look.


Pretty girl.



Okay, get some pictures.

Let me know when you

get something on her.


Hey, want to see

my sister's painting?

Hey, you want to see

my sister's painting?

Nah, I'm okay.

Wanna buy my sister's painting?!

Wanna buy my sister's painting?

Nah, man.

No, thanks.

We don't need the attention.


No, thank you.

Wanna see my sister's painting?

[crowd applauses]

Come on, get up!

Alice, come on.

They want to see

you do something.

Ken, no!

Come on, they want to

[crowd applauses]

That's what I'm talking about.

Alice Qiang,

ladies and gentlemen.

[crowd applauses]



[crowd applauses]

- Good job.

- Thanks.

Good job, Alice.

I saw her the other day too.

She's awesome.

What's her name?

Her name is Alice.

And, she is awesome.

Good job.


More money.

Thank you.

More money, please.

Thank you.

More money, please.


We're rich!

You're so crazy.

Do you like the acrobatics?

Cause, we can do more.

I like this.

This is beautiful.

Did you do this?

I'm interested in

meeting the painter.

You like my work?

Very much.

East Asian, am I right?

What's happening?

The usual.

The police are checking

for market permits.

But sometimes, that's just

their way of finding illegals.

But of course, you have

market permit, right?


My gallery is

right up the street.

Your what?

My art gallery.




Do these all belong to you?

Well, these are all my painters.

People whose work I

love and try to sell.

Is this your first

time in a gallery?

I've seen them on TV before.

Our dad has a shop

where we sell paintings.

Copies of paintings.

Not like these.


Wait a minute.

Do you mind?

I'd like to see all

of them if that's okay.

Oh, this one.

And this one.

You want to buy them?
