How we doing?

Well, if we permutate the first 3

numbers and use 7 as a banker,

it will cost an additional...

Just a minute, just hold it.

We need another $1,240.00.

Do we have that?

- We're $110 short.

- Oh, God.

Jesus, I don't know how much

Oh! Murray - he did it!

He's incredible! He's an inspiration.

I had my money on Ling. I thought

he'd win this time.

The landlady's here...


What's she doing?

What are the odds that's she's not

here for the rent?

Look on the bright side,

she didn't

bring the marshal with her.

Be careful. Have Nasim help you

with these.

Take your time and double-check

every number.

- That's the last batch.

- Be right back.

Where is Ray? I'm here to pick up a check!

He's at the dentist - he'll be right back.

This place stinks! What is going

on here? It's a mess!

I'm have the marshals come tomorrow.

See this bag? Do you know whose this is?

Do you know who these people are?

These are the people who will

pay their rent on time!

That's what I'm trying to tell you!

Maybe we can get you a job there!

- Will I get a bonus?

- You can sell towels in the toilet dept.!

- Ray, you want me to go with you?

- No, I'm just going to the bank.

- You want a coffee?

- No thanks.

You people are crazy! I oughta

kill you! Why am I talking to you?

Your name is not on the lease!

Where is Ray? I want Ray!

Hello, Nasim.

How are you?

- Fine.

- Good.

- I've got those final numbers.

- I feel lucky today.

Don't start talking to me about luck...

Luck? It'll be a big night.

I just want to see what 18 million

dollars looks like.

For what I pay you, I don't want to

hear the word "luck".

How's it going, Zoom?

"Win for Life".

What a great name.

We have some extra-special

talent tonight...

and now - the scariest, sexiest girl

in the world

Ally, Ally from the Valley!

The beautiful Ally!

If he's not gonna pay me tonight, I'm

not working anymore!

- He's screwing us.

- Give him a break, okay?

What do you mean give him a break?

It's been 48 hours, I got bills to pay.

- When has he let you down?

- Where do I start?

You guys relax, we'll get paid I'm sure.

What's the story?

- He's going to the bank.

- At 6 o'clock at night?

- I'm not going out!

- What the f*ck's going on?

We're supposed to be paid in cash.

When Ray gets back, everyone gets paid.

Give me my fucking money, I got

bills to pay.

Girls, girls - give me a couple of hours.
