[Man Narrating]

I'll try anything once, me,

except bestiality.

And maybe Morris dancing.

Yeah, I'll try

and give them a swerve.

Now round here where I live,

everyone's heard of Jason Locke.

He'd just done a five stretch for armed

robbery. Been outless than 24 hours.

Mr. D. had asked me

to drive him about for a few days,

so I said, "Yeah, sure. "

[ Chattering ]

[Narrator]

We pick up this van, and Jason says...

he wants to look up an old friend

who he knew from before.

[Chatter Continues]

You squealin' git !

You f*cker !

You want some, huh ?

Yeah, you cunt !

Please, no more !

F*cking grass !

Come here !

Leave him alone !

You f*cking grass !

- This is what you get.

- [ Screams ]

F*ckin' grass !

Get in there !

[Man Screaming]

[Screaming]

Oh, my face!

Shit.

My face is burning up !

[Screaming]

[Pounding]

[Screaming Continues]

[Pounding]

[ Screaming ]

[ Grunting, Groaning ]

Come on.

Let's go home.

[Narrator]

And that was that. Job done.

Jason needed a new shirt.

The geezer needed a new face.

[Narrator]

Next, I take him to his mate's place,

which he's been hearing

things about.

F*cking bastards.

Lisa ?

I've seen his house.

He's taking the piss.

Nice, isn't it ?

Oh, yeah. How'd he get

that sort of dough ?

How'd he stay

out of prison ?

[Bottle Cap Hits Floor]

- You want egg with this ?

- No. Yeah, go on.

- Would you like anything ?

- No, I'm all right. Ta.

He had a Porsche

and a Bentley, the bastard.

What, a Porsche now ?

That must be new.

- What about Wayne ?

- Oh, he's got a five-series BMW...

and a nice little three-bedroom house

in Billericay.

[ Mumbling ]

It was a f*cking mansion--

great big drive, electric gates,

f*cking statues of lions

on the gate posts.

- You could have told me.

- What, spoil the surprise ?

[Narrator]

Anyway, so look, I'm thinking,

"It's been a really interesting morning.

Thanks very much.

If it's all the same to you--"

- And then he says,

- Gonna need you some more, Billy.

- All right ? Later on.

- And I say...

- Yeah, sure.

- And that's it. I've got the job.

Your girlfriend won't mind,

will she, Billy ?

You have got a girlfriend,

haven't you ?

Yeah, I got a girlfriend.

She won't mind.

Liar.

[Man]

One-nine. Yes, that's right.

Mrs. Knight for Brentwood.

[Man On Radio]

Yeah, one-nine. Yeah, on my way.

- The geezer grassed him up.

What else could he do ?

- Oh, yeah ?

I ain't sayin' he should have gone

that far, but you know how it is.

Oh, he just sounds

like an animal to me.

They should put him back inside,

do us all a favor.

He's just done a five-year stretch

'cause of this mug.

- I'd have done exactly the same thing.

- That's you, is it, Billy ?

You could do that

to someone ?

In principle.

[ Chuckles ]

Billy, don't get involved

with this bloke.

[Billy Narrating] See him, Peter,

oh, he's the top boy. He runs the show.

Him, Wayne, does whatever

Peter tells him.

And Jason-- Well, every firm needs

a mad acidbath murderer, don't they ?

What do you think

of my hair, Billy ?

- You look like a f*ckin' poof.

- F*ck off !

[ Laughs ]

What ?

[Jason]

F*ck of, will ya ?

It's all right, isn't it ?

It looks really,

really f*cking stupid.

Can't you go any faster, Billy ?

I'm racing in the back here.

I thought you were supposed

to be Billy f*ckin' Whizz.

[ All Laughing ]

It's all come from the doors.

You run the doors, and you

control what get inside.

Clubs don't give a shit.

Just don't want any aggro.

Most weeks now, we're...

turning over 20 grand.

- Yeah ?

- Mm.

- [ Snorts ]

- F*cking hell.
