Guns for Hire

Synopsis: Beatle is a quirky loner who refuses to live by society's rules. Her business cards read "Towing/Assassination," and she even has a hit man infomercial to go along with it. Her only human contact is with her psychiatrist and the stripper/hooker she employs once a week. Everything changes the night she meets Athena Klendon, a suicidal blonde with a secret. With a demented killer on their tail, courtesy of Athena's crooked former employer, the two quickly strike a bargain. Athena will change her life insurance policy to reflect Beatle as the beneficiary in exchange for her own execution. And while they wait for the paperwork to come through, Beatle will provide room and board and get some extra help on her infomercial. The two have no idea that Detective Holt has been on their case reviewing their every move. Just when he thinks he's got Beatle pinned beyond a shadow of a doubt, this comedic mystery takes a wild and unexpected turn.

Ready? On'? I think it is.

Is it running?

Yeah, go. Wait, no, hang on,

I'm not. Action!

So where should we start, you think'?

Just introduce yourself

and tell me about your company.

You wanna do

a push up or something?

- No.

- OK.

OK.

Hi, I'm Beatle Boy...

That's stupid, OK?

it's not, ifs cool.

Do it again.

Hf, there, I'm Beetle Boyin,

and I'm gonna be your guide

on the fascinating journey through

the world of cold-blooded killing.

Tell me about yourself, Beetle.

ever want to kill somebody?

I know I do.

Whoa, sorry.

Not a Hitman, you say.

Well, that's not a problem.

Just follow the instructions in my easy

to follow video, and you too. ..

Nah, that sounds weird.

- How many times do we have to do this?

- What do you think? We got everything?

'Till I want to buy the video.

Hi, there, my name is Beetle Boyin,

and I'm here with

the first ever of its kind,

instructional video for Hitmen.

Ever want to kill someone?

I know I do.

It's easy, just follow the instructions

in my video, and you, too,

can be a Hitman.

That was really good.

This is some really, really

great stuff here, Beatle.

I mean it's just clown right

entertaining all the way around.

You know What I like about it

the most though?

That even though the footage

is several years old.

There is no

statue of limitations on murder.

You know What that is?

Let me jog your memory. Dead body.

In your loft about seven years ago.

No? Nothing?

Well, based on the evidence at the time,

we couldn't charge you with a crime.

But that's all changed now hasn't it?

Still not ringing a bell?

OK.

Maybe this will help.

Why don't you tell me about

your relationship with Athena Glendon?

L-low about Carla Garret?

You care to explain that one to me?

So you don't wanna talk about Athena,

you don't wanna talk about Carla?

Well, maybe we should

talk about Kyle Sullivan? L-'?

L-low bout we talk about the time

when you knocked him unconscious?

Did your connection to Kyle

kinda slip your mind

when you were giving

your statement to the police?

Look we got him now, OK'?

And I gotta do everything I can

to keep this guy locked up.

So here's the deal.

You tell me everything you know.

And I'll do What I can in getting this

first degree murder charge reduced.

- Can I ask you a question, Randy?

- It's Detective Hult.

Do you see handcuffs on my wrists?

No.

OK, then. I think we can both agree

that I am not under arrest. Correct?

And I think we both know that's because

you can't charge me with anything.

Unless you can prove it.

I intend to, believe me, I do.

You see when we brought Kyle Sullivan

down and we Went through his stuff.

I think you're gonna be

surprised to know

that he had an awful lot of

information lying around.

But What I think you're gonna be

more surprised about Beatle?

Is that some of that evidence tells

a very compelling story about you.

I like to call it,

The Adventures of Beatle.

And it all begins April the 27th, 2006.

The day you met Athena Glendon.

Wait.

It's four o'clock in the morning,

don't you think that you should,

um, stay and just get some rest?

Gotta run. See you next week.

Shut... Shut up!

The red hot action

starts tonight, at eight,

followed by an all new episode of...

Isn't that the truth Phil'?

- Well, folks, it's Thursday April 27th.

- Thursday. Shit!

We have a foggy start this morning.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Shit. Shit!

Have a nice trip, buddy.

OK, so, What's the total

for all the parking tickets?

What?

No. No, I'm still here.

Are you sure that's right? I mean...
