You want to stop?


Tubes, my boy, what's up?


What's taking so long?

It's gonna take a few minutes.

We ain't got a few minutes.

We got to get busy.

Why don't you do what you

got to do so we can get busy?

Do me a favor. Here.

Calm down. Relax.

I'm gonna show you

how to do this.

I'm gonna show you how

to test this. Like that.

Right. It's dope.

It's dope, Tito.

You ever get the feeling

you was being watched?


You got any soda, man...

like some root beer

or something?

I hurt my leg playing ball.

I got these aspirins

I want to take.

Now, what the f*** is he...

Tell him to turn this sh*t off.

What kind of help you got?

Watching cartoons?

Tell my man to turn the tv

off and get me a soda.

And make sure it's cold.

I like my sh*t cold,

especially when I play ball.

You play ball, Tito?

You don't look

like you play no ball.

But nice gloves.

I like those.

Hey, Jump.

What's up?

It's copacetic.

Now maybe you satisfied.

No. Maybe now I want

to check out another one.

What the f*** I look like,

Joe Neckbone?

Trust ain't one

of my stronger qualities.

You know what I'm saying?

You f***ing disrespect me.

I guarantee the sh*t.

To hell with testing.

Let's get to the large

plus ten percent.

Did he say ten percent?

Wait a minute, Tito.

We had a deal. What's up?

What ten percent

you talking about?

Transportation costs, amigo.

I got expenses.

Well, take the train...

if you got expenses

in transportation.

Why you want to be greedy?

You f*** the sucking greed.

That's our price.

No one else even talks to you

goddamn motherfucking coos.

Now take it or leave it.

Why you want to talk

to me like that?

Take it or leave it?

Take it or leave it?

I take it.

'Cause I like you,

I'm gonna take it.

Pack the sh*t up.

You in power, Tito.

You the king.

Where's my soda?

What the f*** is this?

They're for

the bullet holes, puta.

Room service, motherfuckers!

There's somebody

here to see you.

What's in the cup?

Root beer.

You want some?

There's some things I don't do.

Welcome back home, Frank.

Check him out.

Congratulations, Frank.

Check him out.

Congratulations, man.

Them Colombian motherfuckers...

they took permanent vacation

in hell...

if you know what I mean.

Wow. I must have been

away too long...

because my feelings are dead.

I feel no remorse.

It's a terrible thing.

I heard being in jail makes

you feel like that.

I got a present for you.

Check it out.

They were King Tito's...

but he don't need them

where he is now.

I thought maybe you would

donate them...

to a clothing drive

or something.

Having a good time,

huh, Jump?

I been waiting years for this.

Emilio Zapa sends his regards.

You know how I love money.

Well, help yourself.

Is the meeting set with Dalesio?


You need to let me

bust a cap...

in that moonheaded

motherf***er's ass.


He's a f***ing glitter boy.

He's looking

to get sprayed, laid...

played, and slayed.

Know what I'm saying?

I heard that.

You gonna come down, say hello?

You hobnob with them homos,

you want to.

I'm going downtown,

find me a girl...

get my knob polished.

Time for a real party.


How come you never

came to see me?

Who wanted to see you in a cage?

Of course.


Champagne. Let's break out.

It's King Tito's.

King Tito's gloves.

It's a good thing he's dead

'cause I'd take that glove...

I'd wrap it right round his...


And it's how much?

Wait for the paperback,

and you can get it.

It's too f***ing much for me.

You should read that book, Joey.


Because I think you

might learn something.


How to be good?

Joey, just don't say a word, OK?

Why not?

Because I don't want

you to say anything.

But we're going home, right?

I know. I'm tired already.

Where is he?

Welcome home, Frank.

Good to see you.

Nice to see you.

Thanks for everything.

To freedom.

Come on.

Bill, nice to see you.

Bill, Charlie, you know Frank.

How are you?

Good of you to come.

Judge, how are you?

Nice to see you.

Listen, I want to

introduce you to...

I'm gonna say hello

to your junior partner.

Hiya, Frank.

Good to see you.

You should

be more careful...

of the affairs

you attend, counselor.

One is known by

the company one keeps.

Ain't that right, Joey?

Pete, how are you?

Hey, Frank. Welcome home.

Hello, Frank.

Welcome back.

You know everybody here,

I think.

Pete, how's the family...

Brian, Dennis?

Better than when

you left town, Frank.

They're all working.

How about you?

Back from the dead.

Frank White. I've heard

a lot about you...

and it's all bad.

Don't believe everything that

Pete writes in the columns...

because... well...

I've been reformed.

A lot of people

will be happy to hear that.

Huh, Pete?

What can we expect from

the reformed Frank White?

I want to be mayor.

Thinks I'm kidding.

But first, I want

to talk to Arty Clay.

Why don't you relax?

We're supposed to be having

a good time here.

Tell him I got things

on my mind.

I want to

talk them over with him.

The guy's a f***ing animal.

He ain't gonna meet with you.

Maybe you can do one

of his lieutenants at best.

Tell him...

Frank White wants to talk

business with him.

Just tell him

that all I want to know...

is where and when.

You know, counselor,

they did a wonderful job...

with this gentleman.

He's better than ever.

If you'll excuse me...

I'll see you people

in a little while...

if I'm still around.

Look at you.

Look at you.

What's the matter?

You're not glad to see me?

You belonged

where they put you.

Maybe this time you'll

stay out of trouble.

That depends on how

good my lawyers are.

I thought people like you...

didn't believe

in the legal process.

I thought people like me

were the legal process.

You know what?

You know what

I'd like to do to you?

I would like to take

you on the subway.

What can I do for you?

Tell Arty

I need to speak to him.

Wait here.


There's some yarm out there

that wants to talk to you.

Ace is still the better.

Arty, you're still...

What's happening here?

You got aces?

Two hundred.

Two hundred?

I got to see your two.

All right. One shot.

Last ticket.

Johnny, give me

something good here.

Take it easy.

Arty. Gentlemen.

- Who goes?

- Arty.

I bet two hundred.

Go ahead.

I got a message

from Frank White.

He wants to sit down.

He wants to talk.

You tell him I don't

talk to n*gger lovers.

Let's go. What's down?

He says he's got things

on his mind...

that he wants to discuss

with you...

and he wants to know where

and he wants to know when.

You tell him in f***ing hell,

that's where.

He's gonna wish his lawyer...

left him f***ing

the Sambos in the joint...

when I get through with him.

I was making money

off them Colombians.

That's right.

If that's what you want me

to tell him, I'll tell him.

It ain't clear enough?
