Sit. Sit.

Come back.

A pain au chocolat, bud?

Please, one.


I can't give you no more for free, huh?

Not every time.

Not no more.

I have to subsist.

I know.

I know. I know.

I... I don't carry money when I run.

I'll give it to you tomorrow.

- Tomorrow 100%?

- 100%.

Lou come by,

ask if you're feeding here too much.

Oh, that's 'cause he thinks...

...that I'm coming out of retirement,

but I'm not, so this is okay.

If you go back fighting,

you're heavyweight now.

Not middleweight.

- Come on. Let's go.

- Wait.

Bye, Claude.

Come on.

Come on.


Hey, Hernandez,

no plantain for Silly.

I'm serious, dude.

She shits on the rug,

and she feels

ashamed of herself.

No plantains.

Why does Hernandez always have

to mop the floor so diligently?

It depresses the hell out of me.

How do you mean?

He's always mopping the floor... LIFE magazine is gonna come,

and they're not.

He mops to mop.

You're trying to change the subject.

From what?

You working with me

training Kid Sunshine,

like we talked about.

I'm going to J.J.'s tonight.

He wants to open a Bud's Place in the city.

J.J. huh?

Just checking it out.

Just being friendly.

Okay, I'm intrigued.

What's his weight?

We got to get him down to welterweight.

I thought you wanted to turn him

into Floyd Patterson.

Mercury Williams' people

came to us last night...

...$500,000 and 2% of the pay-per-view.

For WBO at the Garden?

I mean, really getting shortchanged.

But the point is, it's Madison

Square Garden next month.

Kid goes for the welterweight title.

HBO wanted to bring

their cameras in here...

...and shoot Kid training.

'Behind the scenes, ' they called it.

I told them no.

You told them no?


The fight is what's consequential.

Oh, the fight's what's consequential.

HBO's not consequential.

It's not consequential at all.

It's just the only game in town.

Boardwalk Empire's not consequential.

Girls isn't consequential.

Oh, Silly.

You know how much coffee

costs these days?

Uh, a buck fifty?

You say that like it makes

some sort of sense.

It does.

It's a large cup, hot,

doesn't taste like ass.

It's a decent deal.

Can I have a section of the paper?

You can have the whole thing.

I'm gonna take a shower.

How come you never get The Ledger?

Who cares what's happening in Jersey?

I do.

I f***in' live here.

You do too, you know.

Don't remind me.

No Broadway, no Derek Jeter,

no Rockefeller Center,

but I got you... own personal

national treasure.

You stink.

Take a shower.


I'm not used to you

wanting it all the time.

I always want it all the time.

I was training.

I couldn't have it.

What the f***?

The water's not hot.

- Is it cold?

- It's lukewarm.

Better take that.

That doesn't bother you?


You really should take a shower

while it's hot at all.

What are you doing with that pen?

Better if you get The Ledger.

You're making me depressed here.

Give me a week,

a week and a half.

All right?

If I haven't gotten something

together by then,

you can... you can do

whatever the f*** you want.

Waitress at Beau Morley's.

You trying to make me depressed?

I was circling practical things.

Well, you're making me

practically suicidal.

Give me a week.


I know I've been saying it,

but things are coming together.

All right?

No red pen for a week.

You're not gonna make fun of me?


Let's go see a movie.

Want to see a movie?

You want to see a movie with me?

De Niro?


That is truly terrible.

Well, how'd you know who it was, then?

Oh, please.

Give it up.
