Boy George:

I just got to live my life

I tell you, baby

this is no way to live

make sacrifices

till there's

nothing to give

everyone says

there's rules to obey

I can't follow

when things never change

holdin' my checkbook,

got a leak in the pipe

food on the table,

but the landlord knocked twice

I want more

than the shirt on my back

worked too hard

just to repeat the past


No, no, no, you don't

like the bruins

because you don't

understand the bruins.

You want to watch

people skate nice,

you watch tai and Randy.

You want hockey,

you want to see guys

messing each other up

with sticks,

that's what people

pay to see. Primal sh*t.

[Camera clicks]

That's not hockey,

that's violence.

When the game's

played right,

it's about movement.

It's like dance.

So what are you, Bambi?

We live in a jungle.

We gotta have outlets

for our aggression.

Hey, look, you know,

i don't want to argue

with you this morning, ok?

Hey, bill, loosen up

the sphincter, huh?

You're all bottled up.

Good morning, Andrew.

How you doin', Joey?

Hang in there, Joe.

oh, yeah

oh, baby

[camera clicks]

the roof is leaking

stack of pillows

on my bed

no way to wake up...

Yeah, it's ok.

But I gotta tell you,

word's already out

on the street. It's too late.

I can't talk about it.

[Overlapping conversations]

All I can tell you

is if you want to swim,

you gotta jump in the pool.

On that one, I got...

129 1/2.


Whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, whoa!

Hold on! What do you think,

I'm an octopus?

I only got 2 hands here.

Hold on.

It's up a half.

Uh, lunch would be good.

Now, wait.

Not this week, though.

Monty, you want security,

I'll get you a blanket.

You want to get

the big bucks,

you're gonna have to

trust me.

Yeah. no,

i wouldn't touch it.

What they all do

and not do?


Yes, uh, can you get me...

[Loud overlapping


Hey. just don't

trust that guy.

He's a Harvard a**hole.

[Loud overlapping


I'm working now.

[No audio]


Hey, Neil, yeah,

i gotta get back to you.



[No audio]

No, no, no, no.

Forget it!

Yeah. no, no...

Ha. this is getting

very weird.

Jesus Christ! Point that

thing the other way.

What has gotten into you?


it's not safe, Andrew.

I just got it

off the news wire.

They're delaying the trial

another 30 days.

If we have to wait

that long, forget it.

We're dead meat.

Oh, come on. What do you

think kapados is gonna do,

he's gonna kill us?

Come on!

He's a businessman.

It's just business.

That's what we thought

when we took

his bullshit bonds.

You don't pass off

that much

in counterfeit paper

on your own.

I'm telling you,

we were chumped.

He had us laundering

money for the mob.

Bill, bill,

ok, go make some money.

You'll feel better, ok?

That's what I'm gonna do.

Now, please,

sign that thing

before you

blow your balls off.

is it true what I heard

last week and today...

You want to testify against

kapados, fine. Not me.

What is the big deal?

You stick your hand

on a Bible,

you swear to tell the truth,

they find the bastard guilty.

Yeah, and they find us


for having

done business with them

in the first place.

Look, my uncle Fred's

got a dealership

in Springfield.

I'm gonna be selling

used pintos, man.

Yo, morenski,

back me up here.

Tell the man.


Bill, bill.

This whole thing's

gonna blow over.

And meanwhile

the 3 of us

can get back to what's

important in life.
