He's getting

something for the bar owner?

I think I see him.


Mission accomplished.

Here you go, sir.

- No no no.

Are you sure?

- Yeah.

That's an expensive case of Scotch.

Merry Christmas, guys.

- Merry Christmas to you.

Thank you very much.

- Thanks, man, thanks.

So what do you guys say?

Happy hour my place 6:00 a.m.?


- Let's go!

Yeah. Thanks.

Let's do this.

I'm gonna throw this up front.

I'm sorry your night got mined.

Hopefully this makes

you feel a little better.

She was cute!

Look at you.

Jeremy Coleman-

one-man community outreach program.

Don't say it!

Okay, I don't want to hear it.

Let's just try and give this

one more than a couple weeks.

Just because you've been domesticated

doesn't mean I want to be domesticated.

I need you to get domesticated.

We need another couple to hang out with.

Ooh, another exciting night

of Pictionary? No thank you, I'm good.

Pictionary, Charades,

some f***in' Boggle--

Your jabbering is delaying

my drinking. Let's get mobile.

I'm right behind you.

Let's do this.

We gotta stop by the store,

get provisions.

Hey, what are you

doing for Christmas?

What do I do every Christmas?

I'm picking up a shift.

We're having dinner with Maria's family.

You're invited.

She insists.

- Thank you, really,

but I like working the holidays.

Let's go.

- Of course.

Weeest, y'all can

accept it or not

Fools thinkin' Dub S

left wit 'Pac

Weeest, still in tha 4s

and the 'lacs--

Hey hey hey.

Grab me some--

Stop! Before you ask for whatever sh*t

you're about to ask for,

remember, 15-year-old Scotch.

- That means it's good, Craig.

I understand now, fellows.

Thank you.

Grab me a double bag of Funyuns.

- F***.

Are you kidding me?

- Come on.

If I'm not mistaken, we're about

to drink this upscale booze

in plastic cups in your shitty apartment

at 7:
00 in the morning,

so ease up off the sommelier sh*t

and grab me some f***ing Funyuns!

- You're disgusting.

Hey, we'll be across

the street getting gas. All right?

And some black licorice, Jeremy!

I like my licorice

like I like my women.

Don't discriminate, Jeremy!

Yo, Jeremy! What's up, man?

- Morning, fellas!

You don't have to straighten up for me,

Calvin, that's all right.

You know I'm playing in that

holiday tournament tomorrow night.

You better show up this time.

- I'll be there, hey, I'll be there.

I promise.

Hey, Pringles 3-pointer-- hit me.


- Look at that kid.

And that's why

the college scouts keep calling.

It's looking like a full ride now.

Hell, they might even take me.

Yeah right, Dad.

Keep dreaming.

So you've been out

rescuing cats from trees?

Yeah, something like that.

Hey, when are you gonna join up?

Yeah right,

maybe the Second Coming.

How you doing, fellas?


Help you with something?

Keep your nose

on the floor, you f***er!

Settle down.


Okay okay.

Don't you do nothin'.


Why don't you come out

from around the counter?

Get on your knees right here!

Get your nose on the f***in' ground.

Get on your knees!

Kneel down.

Now my man that came

in here last week,

he told you I wanted your store.

Now you told him that

you weren't gonna give up the lease.

I told him I was sorry

but this is a good location for us.

Yeah, I know it's a good location.

It's got freeways.

- Yeah.

Easy to move packages in and out.

I know it.

This whole neighborhood

belongs to the Eastside Crips.

Eastside Crips.

Look, I have to pay them

every month.

I'm under their protection.

So it's no disrespect to you,

but that's the reason

you can't do business here.

If you want me to,

I can call them for you.

I mean you can talk

to 'em for yourself.

Look, I'll get my phone.

Hey, your chin up!

I was just gettin' my phone.

I mean if you want to,

you can talk to 'em.

I'd like that, yeah.

Yeah, get your phone.

Don't f***ing tempt me!

I want to!


Hey, what's up, cuz?

My name is David Hagan.

I don't care much what yours is.

Listen, you gonna go up

against me, I'll kill you.

I'll kill you and everyone close to you.


- Calvin!


- Yeah yeah!

Oh Jesus, oh Jesus Christ.

- Shut the f*** up.

Tell him I shot your son.

What did you kill him for?

Come on, Dennis.

Tell him I shot your son.

Come on, Dennis.

- Oh my God.

Tell him to prove a point

lshot your son.

It'll mean more if you do it.


- Come on, baby, come on.

Come on, come on.

- Nah.

No, Dennis!

- Now we're talking.

Hi, I'm back.

Listen, if I want your territory,

I'll take your territory.

It's been nice talking to you.

What about him?

I don't know, genius.

Figure it out.


Oh God damn it!


- Jeremy!


Oh sh*t.

- What is it, man?


- Call 911.

Jeremy, are you all right?

- Call 911. They shot Calvin.


- They shot Dennis.

Who who who?

Who shot Dennis?

Mike? Mike?

You're gonna want to see this.

What's the charge?

- Murder in the first.

Who caught the case?

- Paxson.

I know-- there was

no evidence at the scene,

but there was an eyewitness,

and he's solid--

he was like three feet

away from Hagan.

Please tell me

they didn't f*** this up.

It's a slam dunk even for him.

It's done.

- Tell Paxson I'm taking over the case.

When are they making the arrest?
