George!

Hey.

George.

Oh, George.

George?

Uh-huh.

I'm pregnant,

George.

Are you sure?

Yes.

Oh.

Well, how long?

Over two months.

Wow. Maya pregnant.

Oh, God.

Oh, by the way,

my name is George Kuffs.

I've known her

for about six months.

I think I love her, but, uh,

I mean, pregnant?

That means responsibility.

You know, I've got...

I've got women to do,

places to see, you know?

You watch. Her first words

when she comes back here...

"What do you think, Georgie?"

I'll tell you what I think.

I'm history. That's what I think!

I just got fired

from my last job.

If I'm on my own, that's fine.

But with a wife and a child,

that doesn't make too much

sense, now, does it?

I didn't even graduate high school,

and she's still in college.

How the hell would

I support her, huh?

She definitely would be

better off without me.

George?

Do you want something soft

and romantic or rock and roll?

Mm. Rock and roll, definitely.

So, uh, when I do leave her,

don't think I'm too big

of a cretin, okay? Okay.

So, what do you think?

About what?

- Come on!

- We're outta here!

See ya next week.

All right, hold it!

I said hold it!

You.

I told you

to stay out of this, cop!

Let's go! Go!

- If we'd stop talking at once...

- Wait! Wait a minute, everybody!

Brad, look, I have

lived here for 30 years,

and this is the worst it has ever been.

Just wait.

- This is still a good district.

- I'm with you, Brad.

Let's give ourselves

a chance.

We're doubling up on the shifts.

That should cut response time even further.

And I'm trying to hire

another guy.

Howdy. Nice to see you again.

You might be a little curious

about this turkey here.

Then again you might not, but

I'm gonna tell you about it anyway.

See this building right here?

It's my brother's business.

I haven't actually

seen him for a while,

and today happens

to be his birthday.

And turkey

is his favorite food.

So, surprise, surprise...

I'm gonna cook this for him.

Then I'm gonna try and

squeeze him for another loan.

But, uh, let's keep that

between you and me for now.

That... That would be...

That would be good.

Jesus.

No, no, no!

Hey! Whoa! Hey!

Hey!

Fuck.

Thank you!

Well, that's that.

Huh?

Here they come.

George.

Happy birthday.

Cheers.

Mm-hmm!

Oh, look.

Yes.

Thank you, all.

Thank you very much.

Oh. Oop.

Oh, George.

Yeah, nice, huh? Well...

I spent my last dollar

on that turkey.

So, happy birthday, Brad.

George, what

do you want? Hmm?

Oh, let's see.

Uh, first of all,

are you aware of the gold rush

that's going on over in Brazil?

No. No, I wasn't

aware of that.

But let me guess...

if you had the money, you would go.

Absolutely.

Exactly, exactly.

All I need is four grand,

and I'm history.

Four grand?

Yeah.

Right.

What? What's so funny?

You.

Well, here.

Make a wish.

I'm sorry, George.

Looks like I'm gonna have to do my shift.

I tried to get hold of Bill.

It's his night off.

I don't know where he is.

Take a look at this.

$50 million, huh?

This is what I'm talking about.

This is the kind of money.

I can make in Brazil.

Right.

What about 2,500?

What about you work for me?

You could live with me,

go to the academy during the day,

patrol with me at night

until you finish the training.

That's not exactly

what I have in mind, you know?

I killed a guy

in a holdup yesterday.

Last week, the leader of

his gang offered me a bribe.

He said it better than this,

but essentially he asked me...

to look the other way

while he ripped up my district.

Something big is going down.

I don't know what it is.
