Yes, it is.


Ah! Come on!

You got $1.25 on there?

Is this machine working?

Is my machine working?

- There you go. Five quarters.

- Yes.

All right,

we've got a lot of people in a hurry here.

- So whatever you can do.

- Sir, it's what I've got.

I got you. I got you.

There you go.

Hey, the machine's working.

- $1.25.

- All right, have a seat.

Open the f***in' door!

Sir, I don't even know

what you're talking...

So you don't know

what I'm talking about?

No, sir, no.

I do not.

That's interesting, because we have

you and your little slut bunny

on camera getting all nice

and cozy with the same guy

in the parking lot.

So I'm going to ask you again...

Who is this f***in' guy

and where is our f***in' money?

I... I don't know.

There's only so many ways

that I can ask you nicely.

This... this is nicely?


Oh, f***in' Christ, man!

What the f***?

What the f***?



No, God.

Damn it!

Let go of me!

Babe... baby,

I'm so f***in' sorry.

Oh, my God, baby!

What did they do to you?

- We don't know who he is, a**hole!

- I'm sorry.

A**hole? Okay.

A**hole, it is.

She didn't mean that!

She didn't mean it!


Derrick. Derrick.

Thank you.

Bat's not always the answer.

Funny thing

about these e-cigarettes.

I miss the satisfaction

of burning something

of burning something down to f***in'

ashes in your hand.

My apologies.

Derrick can be a little

overzealous at times.

- Mr. Pope, this is just...

- I'm not finished.

You see,

I've been Derrick's mentor for a while now.

I taught him

everything he knows...

how to run a casino floor,

how to run a business,

how to really run a business,

but most importantly,

how to spot a thief.

Because in our business,

the #1 rule is

"Never let anyone

steal from you,"

because if even one person

steals from you,

- even as little as...

- 10 Gs.


it's a sign of weakness.

It's a drop of blood

in shark-infested waters,

a hole in your defense.

And when people

think you're weak,

they come in droves

to take what's yours.

Like flies

to the proverbial sh*t.

Now, normally I'd give

Derrick here all night

to make your regret

stealing from me.

No, but we didn't...

we didn't...

But now you've made me late

for my own surprise party.

I'm going to give you both 10 seconds

to tell me where the money is

and whose idea it was

to take it in the first place,

or Derrick here

kills you both...

- Oh, God!

- ...and I lose out on 10 grand,

which, frankly, means sh*t to me.

'Cause you know what?

This is about principle,

not money.

No, please.

It's that simple.

- 10, nine...

- We don't know who took your f***in' money!

- ...eight, seven, six...

- Please!

- ...five...

- No, Mr. Pope! Mr. Pope!

- ...four, three...

- We don't know who he is! Please!

Mr. Pope,

we don't have your money!

- ...two, one.

- F***in'! Glenn Haley! Glenn f***in' Haley!

He's staying at Candlewood, 451!

And it's all her f***in' idea!

- What? What!

- It's all your f***in' idea!

You f***in' bastard! I can't...

- Oh, f***!

- You see, Derrick?

- No, f***!

- Bat's not always the answer.

When it comes down to it,

when it's you or them,

as a species, it's in our DNA,

our very nature,

to choose self-preservation.

I don't care if you're Mother Teresa,

Mahatma Gandhi or f***in' Ned Flanders.

When the chips are down,

we choose life

over loved ones, every time.

- Got it.

- You know.

Can I...

Can I go now, Mr. Pope?

Sure, you can go now.

Derrick, show him the door.

30 years. 30 years, not one

vacation, not one sick day.
