I want them to feel as if

they're really going to die.

I want that.

Yeah, yeah.

I want to hear the screams of terror.

That's what they pay for.


I got him, Mr. Kane.

Why so formal?

Young Travis, what did we discuss?

Um, Father.

Much better my boy, much better, now,

what did you bring me?

The gas cans that you asked.

That I asked to be

delivered to the vans.

Put them there for now.

I'm sorry, Father.

It's all right, come here.

You look like you lost something.

Come here, what's that?

Look at that.

That's yours to keep.

Thank you.

Would you like to double your money.

No loss, all gain.

All right, give me the coin,

give me your hand,

right hand, there we are.

Open it.



But you're empty handed.


And what lesson have you just learned.

You have just learned that

nothing in this life is free.

And if something seems

too good to be true,

it probably is.

The key, young Travis,

is knowing where to look.

I want to know.

You want to know what?

Fireballs, how you do fireballs,

the coin too, all of that, teach me.

The art of misdirection

is the power to direct

the audiences attention

in one direction.

While making them

distracted from the other.

Can I try?

Yes, watch the fire.

The flame will tell

you when you release.


Endure the pain to learn true magic,

you must endure the pain.

Do you remember my benediction?

Magic, sacrifice.

I want to try again.

All right, go get my kit in

the back of the tent. Hurry.



I know you've been through a lot

but we need to get your statement.


We just have some questions,

a few things we need to clear up.

Fine, it all started with the invites,

the golden tickets filled

with false promises.

I'm gonna make you an

offer you can't refuse.

1300 bucks cash, take it or leave it.

I mean come on, man, these are Grable.

She was box office gold

like 12 years running.

Right, that's why I just

offered you 1300 bucks cash

take it or leave it, instead of kissing you

on the mouth and feeding you to the fishes.

Let me just explain something

to you about business.

Grable was a huge star, when?

30's and 40's.

Which means all of her

fans are what, dead.

Which means I'm gonna be holding

onto these until I'm dead,

so it's $1300, take it or leave it.

I mean these were my grandma's dude.

Why don't you give them back to her?

Special delivery.

Is that you Mr. McFeely?

How's your ticker?

If I had a heart it would be fine.

That's junk.

Has anybody ever told you, you bare a

remarkable resemblance to Sammy Davis, Jr.

I'll talk to you later freak.

I'm not a freak, I'm Batman.


All right dude, 1300 bucks.

Are you still here?

Yeah I'm still here, give me the money.

All right, all right, all right.

But I feel inflation has brought that

number down to a thousand dollars.

You can't be serious, dude.

I mean 20 seconds ago you

said it was 1300 bucks.

Tick tock.

All right man, give me the money.

You drive a hard bargain.

You're a monster.

I'm a capitalist,

just ahead of the curve.

You're a dick.

I'm Batman.

Greetings and salutations

my lucky victims.

You have been invited to attend a resurrection

and rebirth of the greatest show on Earth.

Let's get this party started,

my little guinea pigs.

Let the games begin!



Hey man, how's it going?

Very well thanks, I haven't had to

eject any delinquents into orbit.

It's fucking loud in here.

It's a little hectic.

How's your brother?

He's all right, he's

at home with a sitter.

Oh yeah, I understand. / Yeah.

Well enjoy yourself.

All right, catch you later.
