Stay down.

- Where do you think he is, Jesse?

- Could be anywhere.

Come on.

Let's go, come on.


- What is it?

- Thought I heard Morgan.

Behind us.

- What are we doing?

- We're waiting, Steve.

- Here he comes.

- There's Morgan.

He'll come rushing in like always.

We'll get him.


You'll walk the plank, Bluebeard!

You're going to be food for sharks.

You'll never take me alive.


You got me.

I can see it.

My whole life flashing before my eyes.

You know, Morgan, you always die good.

- What are you doing?

- We're going to bury some treasure.

- Here's our treasure chest.

- Great! Now all we need is the treasure.

I got treasure... lucky clearie.

- My Apache arrowhead.

- My penny that was run over by a train.

Careful, Jesse. That knife is sharp.

Your turn, Steve.

Repeat after me...

Some day we'll come back

and dig up the treasure.

"Some day we'll come back

and dig up the treasure."

- And we'll never split up.

- "And we'll never split up."

"We'll never split up."

Hey, Jesse.

- Hey, Bridget.

- Jesse!

You look like shit.


Listen, can you hook me up, darling?

I'm a little on edge.

I can't do that for you. I'll get you a beer.

Carl, can I have a beer?

Yeah, sure.

Is there anything around?

Mouse or Elliot?


I don't like to see you look like this.

You can move back in with me, you know.

Any time.

I'd like that.

I wish I could.

Thanks for the beer.

You're wasting your time on that one.

He's just a junkie.

I can't go to Mouse, I'm flat broke.

Can't you just hook me up? I'm hurting.

- I can't help you, man.

- I need something, bad. Come on.


- Step off, man.

- Know it blows, bro.

You're $1 short and a day late, baby.

They gone.

They all long gone.

But you know what?

They had that good shit, too.


What are you trying to fuckin' sell me?

There ain't no fuckin' crank in this.

Hey, motherfucker.

Thought you said you liked dope.


What the f*ck are you doing?

Shit! What's happening, Jesse?



- Mouse here.

- Hello, Mouse. It's Jesse.

- Fuckin' Jesse...

- No, don't hang up!

- Do you have my money?

- Yeah, I do. I got some money.

I swear to God, man. You hear that?

That is cash.

- Great. I'll see you in the morning.

- Not in the morning. I need some now.

- It's too late now.

- I'll give you all that I owe you and more.

Come on, please. Let me come over right now.

All right, you shit. We'll do it now.

Thank you very much. Thanks.


- I'm going to split.

- Okay, man. I'll see you later.

No, I mean, I'm going to split.

Go stay with Bridget maybe or somewhere.

What about my money, man?

You still haven't paid me shit.

Let's see... Uno, dos...

...tres hundred dollars. Is that cool?

Yeah, man. That's cool.

Want some spaghetti?

I think I'll pass.

The drumming sounds good, man.

Have you seen Bridget? She been here today?

She left about 30 minutes ago.

- Did she say where she was going?

- No, just that she was hungry.

Tell her good-bye. I've got to split.

- How about paying your bill?

- Yeah.
