When'd you buy these? They're beautiful.

Bed sheets.

- So where are the drapes? On your bed?

- Gotta try to find the second life in things.

- How's your school?

- Good. Hard.

- I would love to go back.

- So go!

I think it's a little late in the game, no?

School would be a piece of cake

compared to what you've been through.

Thank God for this one, huh?

She saved our lives, this little girl.

She really did.

- How you doin', Rosie?

- Hi, Jimmy.

Hey, little girl.

Hey, little girl. Big girl.

- What's up?

- Rosie's gonna sit for Corinna, study here.

- Tonight?

- Yeah, we got the meeting.

I caught the one by work. The nooner.

We were supposed to go tonight.

Yeah, but I gotta go to Albany tomorrow.

I gotta check out that body shop.

I think it's better when we go together,

don't you?


Jimmy f***ed up?

How much I owe?

Gimme a dollar.


You go to the meeting. I'll watch the baby.

- Sorry, Rosie. OK?

- No big thing.

We'll pay you half for comin' downstairs.

Come on.

- Come on.

- Jimmy!

- Jimmy!

- Here you go.



- Jimmy, I'm a f***in' dead man!

- What are you doin' here, Ronnie?

I got eight cars on a carrier. Boat's leavin'

in 90 minutes and no driver. I need your help.

You are not listening to me, OK?

I can go back to jail just for talkin' to you.

I know. I know. I know, Jimmy.

I know. I went to three guys before you.

I know you don't want to be involved

with this sh*t - and I respect that, Jimmy -

but I don't know what else to do.

You know who I have to answer to?

Little Junior Brown.

Ronnie, this is your problem.

I don't give a sh*t.

Look what he did to my hand last week.

He thought I shorted him $50.

Now I got $350,000 worth of this guy's cars

and no driver! I need your help here.

Ronnie, I have a baby inside.

Everybody respects this but you.

Jimmy, you havin' a party?

Jimmy, I know that.

But you gotta help me out.

You cannot come to me

with this sh*t any more.

- You gotta help me.

- Out.

You know I love you, man. I respect you, man.

I'll give you $1500. We'll be back in two hours.

Ronnie, I don't want your f***in' money.

Get outta here.

You don't want my f***in' money? Huh?

I remember after your mom died.

You remember?

And your father used to go on his benders.

Whose people came to get you, man?

Whose people came to get you?

Where'd you live?

When you had no place to live,

where'd you live?

- That was a long time ago.

- My family's never asked you for nothin'.

Jimmy, I never asked you for nothin', man.

Jimmy, this guy's gonna cripple me, man.

He's gonna cripple me.

I'm your blood cousin, Jimmy.

I'm your blood cousin.

It'll take two hours, man.

Please don't let this happen. Please don't let

this f***in' guy hurt me. He's gonna kill me!

The babysitter from upstairs, get her down.

It'll take two hours. Pay her double.

Please, Jimmy. Please...


- Hey. I wake your parents up?

- Don't worry about it.

- OK. I should be back in two hours.

- OK.

- Thanks.

- Sure.

Since you went away, man, we got big, man.

No more smash-and-grab bullshit.

You know I got a half-size difference in my

shoes and gotta put three insoles in the left?

Now when I see some shoes I want,

I buy two pairs - 10 and 11.

- I'm talkin' $300, $400 kicks.

- I don't give a f*** about your shoes.

Mr. Jimmy!

I'm talkin' $200, $300 kicks.

When you want back in, you let me...

You playin' time games with me?

Whoa. Junior, I'm your man.

It's gonna happen.

Remove the f***ing hand.

I'm your guy, Junior. I'm here.

There's no problem. Let's just do it.

You're here, huh?

He's here!

We're saved

Come on, Junior, man. It's not my fault.

What the f***, man?

He's a drunk, man!

Look who showed up to drive.

He's f***in' socked.

Half now. He'll throw you the rest after.

No stagger. Just haul ass!

No stagger?

We'll look like a circus train!

F***in' gorilla.

Let's get the f*** outta here.

Jim, what are you doin'?

We can't leave a guy like this.

They'll cut his throat around here.

So? Good.

You know what your problem is?

You're a liberal.

Ready? Let's go. Let's go!

I got a boat waitin'!

Where... Where's my money?

Shut up.

What happened? What happened?

- Who took my goddamn money?

- I said shut up!


- Step out of the truck.

- What's the problem?

No problem. Just step out of the truck, please.

- Slowly. Slowly.

- OK, I'm slow. Watch my hand.

Keep your hands up.

What's goin' on? Hey!

Somebody think I'm stupid or somethin'?

- Hey, fellas. How you doin'?

- Hey. What's up?

Mind if I see your manifest?

Who took my goddamn money?

You wanna step down outta the cab, please?


- Get him!

- Sh*t!

- Run! Run!

- Go!


- Move your hand.

- No, no!


- There was no need for a medevac on this.

- My man is down!

- You had no authority.

- Kiss my f***in' ass!

You watch Calvin, all right?

Let me handle this.


Does that hurt?

- What are you doing?

- Who are the mutts that took off?

No, no, no. You calm down, OK?

Hey, chill out. The DA.

That's him.


I want the others.

- I don't know 'em.

- What d'you think this is, huh?

A possession of stolen property rap?

Your partner's dead

and you're getting charged with murder.

The shot cop - you're getting charged with

aggravated assault. You want air on this?

Right now, give me some names.

A guy called me, woke me up,

said he had a carrier for me to drive.
