- Good morning, Tenspot.

- Ah, Billy Cole.

Now, that...

that is sexy, very sexy.

Mmm, my color.

Oh, look, I gotta drop Anthony Hopkins

off at the airport in 15 minutes.

He's gonna be gone for three weeks,

so I'm gonna leave the cabana unlocked.

There are gonna be fresh towels

under the sink. You can shower there.

Hmm. I showered

at Barbara and Jim's.

Son, I thought white folk couldn'tjump.

Billy, that ain'tjust any white folk.

No, no, that is Christina Hansen...

- NCAA and Olympic Volleyball Champion.

- Really.

What a life we got.

Mansions, Malibu,

swimming pools, limousines.

- Not bad, huh?

- Son, we gotta get out of it.

- What are you talkin' about?

- I'll tell ya, it's been gnawing at me for...

What is it this time, Billy?

I made a promise to your father.

Yeah, that you would

never tell me who he is.

- Yeah.

- And that you would take care

of the kid, and you did.

L... I could have done

a betterjob.

Pop, you did great.

Tell ya somethin'. L...

I gotta reinvent myself.

I have to make a statement that says...

"Billy Cole is back."

Well, right now,

Billy Cole is late for work.

Hello, Billy.

Ah, not-so-honorable Mr. Cole!

- You late. You bad example for white people.

- Yeah, yeah.

Cut the accent, will ya?

You're bad at it.

Hey, listen.

I told you once, I told you

a hundred times, this business is tough.

If you're a Mexican,

you're just a gardener, but if you...

I know. If you're Asian,

you're a landscaper. Right?

Mr. Mel Gibson want

one more ficus tree today. Chop, chop!

- Now, I delivered two ficus trees

to Mel Gibson last week.

- Yeah?

- What is he, smoking them?

- Hey, I don't know, I don't care, I don't ask.

- You deliver.

- Okay, all right, I'll deliver everything.

Listen, um,

can you loan me 50 bucks?

What? Fifty? Fifty...

You owe me 50! No, I cannot do. Cannot.

I know that. I've got it

written down in my book.

I don't want somethin' for nothin',

especially from friends.

Now, here's what I'm gonna do.

I'm gonna take all this stuff...

and I'm going to deliver it for you,

and then that will make us even.

- Deal?

- Deal! Deal. Okay, you take off, you deliver, you go.

- Could I borrow 50 dollars?

- What?

You a crazy man! You no pay

the 50 dollar you borrow last time.

You not right up here.

What are you? You mad.

- No! You crazy! Go!

- Don't make a federal case out of it.

Just... Why don't you ask me why

I want the 50 dollars?

- Okay. Okay, Billy-san.

- Mm-hmm.

Okay. We sit down.

- Why you want 50 dollar?

- I'm glad you asked.

Because this afternoon the University of Georgia

plays the University of Alabama...

and it's a no-brainer.

- What is that, Wong's again?

- Yeah.

He loves to bet on football.

You know, he's a little sick

about that game.

I'm a little worried about him, you know,

because of the gambling thing.

Right. You know, if he ever fixes that,

you'll be looking for another source of income.

Oh, I got a hot one

for you today, Billy boy.

Big Daddy's Chocolate in the sixth.

It's a no-brainer.

How sure?

How sure, how sure.

Who are talkin' to? How sure.

- I gotta draw you a picture

of who I'm gettin' this from?

- Mm-hmm.

Word's out:
Anybody gets in front

of Big Daddy's Chocolate...

spends the rest of

the season in Cedars.


- The hospital. Traction.

- Ah!

Now, that's handicapping.

Yo, Angelo.

How's it goin'?

Yeah, what's the line

on Big Daddy's Chocolate? Still two to one.

Do me a favor. Throw another

hundred dollars down for a friend of mine.

Billy Cole.

Yeah, that Billy Cole.

I got his money in my hand.

It's still sweaty.

- 'Ey, who do you think you're talking to here?

- Yeah.

- No, it's not counterfeit, you a**hole!

- Nyahh!

- I apologize, Billy. I'm very sorry.

- That's all right.

Opportunity knocking.

Hi! It's Billy Cole.

We thought it was Tom "Honks."

No, it's not Tom "Hunks."

It's me.

Oh, look, I got ya

a little somethin'. Ta-da.

- Oh, it's so small.

- Yeah, that's what they all say.

What is it?

It's a bonsai tree.

They're very rare and very expensive.

So are we.


- So... Hi.

- Hi, Julie. Hey, Julie.

What are you selling today, Billy?

I ain't selling nothing.

I'm here as the friend

of the working woman.

- I'm here to talk about money, a lot of money.

- Money always talks.

You know...

Tommy Z's a very good friend of mine.

If I had a daughter

and she wanted to be a stripper...

this is the kind of place

I would want her to work.

Problem is,

you're not outside.

You're not, like,

at the beach and...

breathing in the trade winds

and the fresh air.

- You're in the dark.

- Wait a minute. You talkin'

about us hookin' on boats?

- No!

- Cause I don't hook. No way.

Look, Billy,

we work hard here.

- We don't have time for your schemes.

- This ain't a scheme.

- It's... volleyball!

- "Wolleyball?"

So we're gonna get...

rich playing around in the sand?

And trust me, the sand,

it gets in everything. Uh!

No, no. You don't understand.

Beach volleyball is an Olympic sport.

We can make it sexy.

Then how come no one's thought

about your great idea until now?

Lots of guys have ideas, but they don't know

how to sell 'em. I know how to sell 'em.

I'm outta here. Ladies, Billy.

So what do you say, girls? I'll meet ya

tomorrow morning at Zuma Beach?

Okay, I'll do,

if we make extra money.

Me, too, 'cause I don't wanna be

shaking my booty forever.


I'll see you in the morning.

Hey, Billy!

What do we wear?

Dress for sport.

It's Big Daddy's Chocolate

gaining around the clubhouse turn.

Come on,

Big Daddy's Chocolate!

Ladies and gentlemen, it's Big Daddy's Chocolate

and Doughboy moving up neck and neck.

Jackson! Wake up!


You're gonna wanna watch this.

- Come on, baby!

- An absolute no-brainer, ladies and gentlemen!

- Mmph.

- You don't give a sh*t. Ehh.

Time to make a phone call.

Time to reach out

and touch someone. Aah!

Mooney, I want to

know what you're eating.

These are huge toilet fish

for a dog your size...

so I think you're either eating rats,

cat heads or parts of a squirrel.

Quit your barking!

You should be over here helping me.

My gosh!

I should hire somebody to do this.

I shouldn't be doing this myself.

Mooney, get over here, pick this up with your

mouth, and take it over and drop it over the cliff.

Help me. Your poop comes with an oil

that I have not seen before or even smelled.

Mooney, if you don't shut up,

I'm gonna drop-kick you to Catalina.

Ah, you're awake.

If you wanna be my assistant,

you've gotta be awake and alive.

- I'm alive.

- Good boy.


Uh, is this the Volleyball Association?

- Yeah, I have a team.

- Volleyball?

I just was wondering how much it costs

to enter one of the matches.

- Yeah, I'll wait. Hmm?

- Hey, Billy?

I was really good at volleyball.

I got a scholarship and everything.

I thought you got a scholarship

in baseball.

I did at USC, but I got one for volleyball,
