Come here. I'll take him.

I'll take him. Come on.

Goodness, Chad. Don't be sensitive.

Hey, that wasn't worth all that fuss,

was it, Alex?

Come on now.

- Is he OK?

- He'll be fine.

Well, Paul. Six years, three banks

and $200 million later.

- Congratulations, Nigel.

- You, too.

Mr. Wagner, it's time

to rock and roll.

- Time to rock and roll.

- Good luck, darling.

Many centuries ago,

a Chinese poet foresaw a Hong Kong

that glittered like the stars

in the heavens.

Today, by providing an underwater tunnel

to connect Hong Kong Island with

the mainland and the New Territories,

we hope that

we have brought that prophecy

one step closer to reality.

And so, ladies and gentlemen, Griffith

Wagner Enterprises proudly present

to the Crown colony of Hong Kong

the Victoria Harbour Tunnel.

Paul. Sure you don't want me

to follow you home?

Oh, I can get home without you, Frank.

- I'll believe that when I see it.

- We'll be fine.

You take the night off. Hey, thanks.

Without you I could never have done it.

Now, get lost, you bum.

If you say so. Katherine, take a look

under the front seat, would you?

That's a little token

of my appreciation.

I don't know how Paul's initials

got on there, but they're there.

That's nice, Frank. It's really nice.

It's cheap and there's no cigars, but...

But it's... really great.

Thanks for everything, pal.

Hey, Frank.

It's lovely. Goodnight.

- Frank? I said take the night off.

- I heard you loud and clear.

Then that's not your car following us?

No, it's...

What's the matter?

Paul, whatever you do,

don't get out of the car, goddamnit.

I'll be right there.

Get down! Get the boys down!

Get them down!

My babies! Please, no!



Paul, no!

No! Paul! Oh, my God!

Oh, God!

Oh, my babies!

Oh, babies!

My babies. What'll happen to them?

You'll never know.

Get those kids and get out of there!


- How do you feel now?

- Oh, it still hurts.

Oh, I'm so sorry.


- Maybe you should relax now, OK?

- OK.

Slowly close your legs.

Beautiful. Doing well.

You know, stretching is so important.

For example,

because of my big legs and karate,

I can do the splits, no problem.

Back and forth. Back and forth.

Feels good.

They're right in here.

I'll be with you in a minute.

- Chad.

- Yeah?

I'm sorry. Don't move.

Take over the karate class.

Look, Frankie.

I'm busy with those girls now.

No, this is business.

- Take over the karate class.

- Like this?



We got a little problem...


- Jackie, what's wrong?

- No problem.

- What's wrong?

- It's the new guy.

- How you doin'? All right?

- Yeah.

It's gotta be him.

What are you,

the ballet teacher or what?

Yeah, I'm dancing, yeah.

Also some karate.

- Karate?

- Show me one of your special kicks.

- You wanna see one of my kicks? Yeah?

- Yeah. C'mon.


Chad, come up to my office, ASAP.

Hong Kong? Uncle Frankie.

Get real, man.

We can't just cut out for two weeks.

We got a business to run.

You have another business to run

in Hong Kong.

Make this thing look

like a f***ing dog pound.

Another business in Hong Kong.

Uncle Frankie...

I'm not your uncle.

You're not my uncle?

Suddenly, after 25 years,

you're telling me you're not my uncle.

And you weren't born in France.

I just raised you there.

Any more surprises? Like maybe

I own a grocery store in Zimbabwe?


Now, listen to me. I raised you

ever since you were six months old.

I brought you up

like you were my own kid.

Have I ever given you any reason

not to trust me?

- No.

- Then trust me.

We're going to Hong Kong.

Chad. C'mon, put on your seat belt.

Look at this, Frankie.

Let's go shopping.

Bop, bop!

Frankie, check it out.

Driver. How long?

- Hotel. How long?

- We're not going to the hotel.

- What?

- We're gonna go to this joint first.

Nice little joint. It's highly

recommended in the tour books.

Out. Out.

Thank you. Keep it close.

Hey, Frankie. What is this?

It's a mah-jong parlor.

It's a cross between dominoes

and five-card stud.

Try a hand. I'm going

to talk to this guy.

Frank. Frank. Frank. Frank.

You wanna stay here? Beautiful.

I'll be waiting at the hotel.

I'll take a shower and shave and...

- It'll be great.

- No, we'll go together. Come here.

I want you to see something in here.


- Chad, trust me. C'mon.

- This place sucks.

Hey, boss. Just the way you like it.

Very hot.

For your friend, too?

What's wrong?

- What's wrong with him?

- I dunno.

- What'd he give you?

- Cash, money. I love Hong Kong.

Very nice.

Thank you.


Go on. Go see what she wants.

I think she wants to talk to you.

Go on. I'll be right here.

Did you pick these out yourself?

I am impressed. Haircut, too.

You know,

this really is a lovely color on you.

What else do you have in here?

Silk underwear.

- Keep going.

- More surprises?

Oh, yeah. Big surprise.

Huge surprise.

- Look at him. The way he walks.

- He looks like you.

- The way he touched you?

- I'm sorry. He looks exactly like you.

Look like me?

You, of all people, should know

I'd never wear black silk underwear.

- Wait, wait, wait.

- Look at him. A f*ggot.

Frank. Frankie. What's going on here?

Chad. He's your brother.

Look at him. For Christ's sake.

Look at him.

Just take a look at him.

He's your twin brother.

I don't believe this. My brother.
