Now we take it easy.

Stop it, Mickey, enough.

Thanks, good bye.

Kilarney January 10th - "Dear

sir last year you and

your wife saw my stud farm;

at the time it was

not for sale. Today, I'm

forced..

to sell it, if you're still

interested, please" etc, etc.

That house! To the right.

Too isolated.

Just right for a hideout.

No, we'll be spotted right away

You have something else?

Not for now.

Get down!

What's this shit?

- Shut up and don't move!

Just wait now, I'm unarmed

And Ricky? He knows.

Ricky is your long ... Wait!

I will tell you when ...

Just a little longer...

What do I do?

- Wait ... Now!

Oh, shit!

Why?

Serge... Serge!

Serge...

Serge... Oh my God!

Serge... Serge!

Mickey,

we have to go right away.

We'll have more information

about the...

We're just off for the day,

We'll be back this evening.

All right.

Are you Durieux?

Yes why?

- You must come with me.

What?

- Serge is over there.

Serge? Where?

Come through the back.

Well Roland, you might have

knocked.

You're brother had an accident.

- Again? What is it this time?

He got killed.

He f*cked off again, right?

Well, I heard that Serge

Oliver was busting out.

A young punk told me.

And you ran straight to my

brother to tell him?

Well, he kept talking about

that guy Serge so...

Okay, okay. After all that time...

Bravo, let's hope

everyone stays quiet.

The Doctor is coming.

Thanks Noel. And Nicole?

She's okay, she'll be out for

awhile.

I didn't know where to go.

Sorry I came here.

His friend squealed on us to

Sylvain Constantini.

I am not interested.

I know, but Sylvain is dead.

If his brother knows I'm here,

then it will all start over.

You know what his brother is

doing? Real estate.

Listen, Serge. I'm going to

take care of you.

Stay here as long as you want.

Want to go aboard with your friend?

I can help you, but the all

the rest doesn't concern me.

I'll get you some blankets.

He's scared shitless, no?

Shut up.

You don't know who Noel was!

Constantini...

Sylvain Constantini.

It takes me back 20 years.

Two months from retirement.

Hi Raymond. You must know.

No, know what?

I'll call you in 3 hours.

That was the doctor, what's

going on?

Serge is here.

Shit.

Where's the other one?

Are you out of your mind?

I'm doing nothing wrong. Swell

horses!

You must not be seen. Come

back inside and stay there!

No, I'm fed up, fed up.

I'll take care of your car.

Come, I'll take you back.

By force? I'd like to see that.

Okay,

you choose, you stay inside

or you leave

and shut your trap and never

come back here.

You think you scare me?

If it's that way, I'll go to

Paris for a spell.

How could you trust that guy?

- Serge is dying.

Hello yes, Serge just passed

away.

No bullshit, don't hang up.

I'm Mickey, let me talk to Noel.

But I just spoke to him.

He must help me leave, he

promised me this morning.

No, no, you can see me, but
