So when Des Connors, the last link to his dad, calls to ask for help in the matter of a missing son, Jack is more than happy to lend a hand. But sometimes prodigal sons go missing for a reason...

(Woman speaks Thai

on airport intercom)

(Speaks Thai)

My name is Dean Canetti,

and I think

the, ahem, technical term

for your situation, Gary,

is what we call 'rooted'.

Wrong country for half a kilo

of smack in your Louis Vuitton.

You planted this.

You bloody well know.

You're looking down the barrel

at 20 years.

You know, we got thirty bodies

to a four man cell.

You got rats

crawling up your arse.

Or...

Your flight leaves

in 90 minutes

and you go back

to your swanky apartment

and your small penis compensating

convertible if you talk to me.

Feel free to name names. Levesque.

No?

TransQuik?

It was planted.

(Sighs) Well, enjoy your stay

at the Bangkok Hilton, Gary.

Wait.

Can I have your attention, please?

This is the final boarding call for

all passengers on Flight 141

from Bangkok direct to Melbourne.

Your flight is now boarding...

Thank you, Mr Connors.

Dave, you there? Dave, we got him.

Rolled and boned him.

Wait till you see it!

He spilled his guts!

There are intestines everywhere.

This'll hang the Teflon bastard when

we get it out there.

Just hang on a sec.

You there?

Yeah, no, no, no.

I'm just, uh, making sure

young Gary gets home

safe and sound.

He's no good to us dead, right?

.

NICK CAVE:
Red Right Hand

It's like a Munchkin convention.

Jockeys without horses.

It never looks right.

COMMENTATOR:
But he's not going to

get there

and Pax Americana racing away

the last little bit.

Strides away

and wins it by a half...

Not much of a turn out.

Mid-week races at Pakenham.

Dougie'd understand.

Is that the widow?

Yeah. Talk about lucky.

She was at a hen's night

sticking 50 dollar bills

into a Chippendale's G-string

while Dougie snored

through the house fire.

Mmm. Well, he probably

couldn't reach

the smoke alarm

to change the batteries.

Who's the white shoe with the tan?

Ricky Kirsch. From Bris-Vegas.

Ah, obviously wracked with grief.

Reflex action.

Ricky made his first million

in the fruit business.

..always see it through

Win or lose, we do or die

In defeat, we'll always try

Fitzroy, Fitzroy

The club we hold so dear

Premiers

We'll be this year...

A bar fighter,

your father, Jackie.

Labourer and a bar fighter.

We wear the colours

maroon and blue.

Harry.

See you in the members.

What happened to Quarantine

prohibiting cane toads

leaving Queensland?

Ricky Kirsch? Yeah, I saw him.

What's he doing down here?

Well, I gather he's not exactly

on Racing Queensland's Christmas

card list. Talk of race fixing.

How'd we go in the fifth?

Pax Americana?

BOTH:
Half a length.

Wouldn't be dead for quids.

Jack f*ckin' Irish.

That's for you.

Ah, Brendan.

You shouldn't have.

Should he, Drew?

Brendan insisted

on thanking you himself.

The, uh, Crown

dropped all charges.

You're the bloke got the result,

Jack.

If it weren't for you trackin' down

those hookers

I was innocently banging

in a three-way

on the night of the murder,

I'd have had no alibi witnesses,

would I?

My poor missus'd be visiting me in

jail now.

Oh, it's a feel-good story

all round.

I'd donate a kidney for you

if you needed one.

I really hope you haven't, mate.

It's not mine, is it?

A symbol of my gratitude.

My number's on the card there.

Anything you want, Jack.

Any time. I'll fix it.

You know, a bottle of port would have

done the trick.

I mean it. Grateful don't even begin

to cover what I feel.

I wanna have your babies,

that's more like it.

I wanna have your bloody babies.

Right.

The perks, Jack. Perks.

Yeah, thanks, mate. Thanks.

You looking for me?
