Circus

Synopsis: Bruno, a sadistic criminal, wants clever con man Leo out of the way. Leo and his equally clever wife, Lily, are up to something. So too is Julius: he hires Leo to kill Gloria, Julius's wife. Leo does it, but then Julius shows up with the murder on tape, saying Gloria isn't his wife - it's blackmail. Leo's bookie, Troy, is also closing in, wanting to be paid. Bruno and Lily as well as Bruno and Julius have their own scams running, and Leo is their target. Maybe Leo can get Troy off his back, avoid Moose (Bruno's huge enforcer), send Gloria's corpse out of England, turn the tables on Bruno's murderous brother Caspar, and outfox Lily. Or is Lily his fox? It's a three-ring circus.

- You'll see me? | - Yeah.

Full House. Jacks or sixes. | What do you think of that?

Give me the money.

No.

No, Caspar, please.

Arnie.

Did you really think there was anywhere | on this f*cking planet...

...you could hide from me?

You've had three months of fun | with my money.

I'll get it for you.

- I know I can. | - I know you can't.

'Cause I've got a new accountant | and he's going to put everything right.

Everything you got...

...f*cking wrong.

Because of you, | I owe 2 million quid to the taxman.

I also nearly lost my shipping firm.

What is it with you lot?

I got another moron | who almost lost me my casino.

You can't trust no one.

You can trust me, Bruno.

You want to run a casino?

- No, but... | - Then shut up!

Leo is gonna run the casino.

F*cking Leo! I'm your brother, | you should think of me first!

If I wanted you to run the casino, | I would have said:

"Caspar, run the f*cking casino. "

- I can run the f*cking... | - Not in front of Arnie.

Bruno...

...I'm begging you, don't kill me.

I'm not gonna kill you, Arnie.

Thank you, Bruno.

Caspar's gonna kill you!

And he is gonna f*cking enjoy it.

Don't be too long, Caspar, | we've got guests coming.

So long, Arnie. | You weren't a bad accountant...

...except for the whole | embezzlement thing.

Just got Dom to sort out | and that's all the business for the day.

Lovely.

Leo, get the phone!

Hl, we can't come to the phone, | but leave a message...

...and we'll get back to you. Bye.

Hl, Leo. It's Popeye here, mate.

It was great seelng you yesterday.

I've been thlnklng about | what we were dlscusslng.

Anyway, I'd llke to talk some more | about It. So, glve us a rlng.

Did you say something?

You just got a phone call.

Yeah?

Jason Cramer. Popeye.

I forgot to tell you. | I bumped into him yesterday.

Yeah?

Yeah, got a new eye.

Looks sort of real.

I thought he moved up north for good?

- He still with Clare? | - Yeah.

So, what did you two talk about?

He just said give him a call, | maybe get together.

So, why is he back?

He just...

He followed some guy down.

- Popeye reckons he's ripe. | - Popeye looking for a partner?

I didn't say yes.

I did tell him we were leaving, though.

You said that before and guess what, | we're still here.

Not for much longer, just one more job.

It's big enough.

It's not the money, Leo. | We both know that.

Just a few more weeks at the most, | and then we're gone.

Where?

Well, I thought we'd agreed, | but we can go anywhere you want.

Anywhere I want?

How much Spanish have you learnt, Leo?

That is all we need.

- I need to know you're serious about going. | - I am serious.

- I don't want this life anymore. | - We'll fly to Cuba. Take a boat...

- Go fishing for marlin? | - Go fishing for marlin.

- Sit on the beach. | - Drink Cuba Libres?

Do the whole | Ernest Hemingway-type thing.

Shoot ourselves, you mean?

Well, only if the moment calls for it.

Man!

Dom. I need to talk to you.

I'm sorry, fellas. I need a minute.

- How are you doing? | - All right, Moose. How are you, okay?

How's your handicap?

- Pardon? | - Your golf game?

Not bad. Playing off of seven now.

- Bruno really needs to talk to you. | - Right. Does he?

It's not about this Manchester thing, is it?

Funny business all that business, | you know?

- How is he? Is he all right? | - He's angry as hell, Dom.

What about my clubs?

Let's go, Dom.

You ever thought of getting something | a bit bigger Moose?

You know what I mean?

My car wouldn't start today, Dom. | This is Helen's car.

I told her to get a bigger car. | She doesn't listen to me anymore.
