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 sh*t.


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 sh*t, too.


What are you trying to f***in' sell me?

There ain't no f***in' crank in this.

Hey, motherf***er.

Thought you said you liked dope.


What the f*** are you doing?

Sh*t! What's happening, Jesse?



- Mouse here.

- Hello, Mouse. It's Jesse.

- F***in' 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 sh*t. 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 sh*t.

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.


Come here!


Flight 421 to Houston, now boarding at 37 D.

Your attention, please. Flight 421

to Houston, now boarding at gate 37 D.

- How much to go to Galveston?

- Galveston?

Yeah, right!

Galveston's 50 miles from here, boy.

Can you take me or what?

You got the money, honey, I got the time.

Morgan, here. Leave a message

after the beep. I'll return it if I feel like it.

- How long will you need the boat?

- About a month... go back and forth to the island.

All right. Why don't you just buy it
