Try as they will and

try as they might,

who steals me gold won't

live through the night.

A limousine?

What in the world has

gotten into you, Mr. O'Grady?

Just the start, my dear.

Just the start.

Take the last look at this dump.

Tomorrow we'll be

looking at mansions.

Mansions? Will you

listen to yourself?

And a limousine?

We've got no money for this.

Right inside.

Did the funeral parlor

deliver the package?

Aye. 'Tis on the porch

where they left it.

I don't want to touch it.

Will you tell me what's going

on here, Daniel O'Grady?

Will that be all, sir?


Bon voyage, captain.

Thank you very much, sir.

You have a nice evening.


What's going on here is we're rich.

You were supposed

to bury your mother,

not send her ashes all

the way from Ireland.

- What are you going to do?

- It's not me mother's ashes.

Gold, Leah! Gold!

What in the Lord's name?

A pot of gold.

A wee person, a leprechaun.

I caught him and made him

show me where his gold is.

It's the rule, you know.

Aye, you're a drunken fool,

and a storyteller.

- It's the truth, I'm telling...

- There's a storm brewing.

I'm telling you the truth.

Come on to bed, now, and I'll

make you a pot of nice hot tea.

Leprechaun indeed.

Pot of gold. Whatever next?

Dan? Dan, is that you?

Mary had a little lamb

Little lamb, little lamb

Mary had a little lamb

Whose fleece was white as snow

He followed her to school one day

School one day school one day

He followed her to school one day

Which was against the rules

I can't breathe.

Please open the suitcase.

I'm going to suffocate.

Do you like the gold

buckles on me shoes?

I want me gold now!

Oh, God, no!


No problem.

I smell some tea brewing.

I hid the gold, Leah. We're rich now.

Where did you hide it, Dan?

Did you hide it somewhere

near the house?

Tell me where you hid the gold.

How did you find me?

The wee people have

their magical ways.

I knew it. What have

you done with my wife?

Oh. Oh, the poor lass.

I should've told her

to watch her step.

I got ya! It's my gold!

I'll fix him. I'll get him.

Your wife makes a fine pot

of tea, Danny me boy.

Where did you get that?

- I'll fix you, you bastard!

- No! No!

Here's what you'll get, you monster.

Get it away! Put it away!

I got the gold fair and square.

Them were the rules.

Catch me if you can!

You can't get away.

Looking for something?

What did you do?

You... You killed my wife.

Hello, Dan. I'm okay.

I just got a little kink in me neck.

I should have killed you when

I caught you in Ireland.

Give him the gold, Dan.

He's a nice little leprechaun.

I'll give you more than gold!

Your bullets won't stop me forever.

I'll keep coming back.

The power of this clover will

keep you in there forever.

Get that damn clover off this crate!

I told you you couldn't kill me.

Where's me gold, Danny me boy?

Oh, Danny, don't strain yourself now.

No, not gasoline.

You can't burn me. I won't let ya.

Don't strain yourself.

You're not as young

as you used to be.

You might have a stroke.

I curse ye for all eternity.

I traded me soul for me gold.

You'll trade your life.

If you give me me gold back...

I'll go away.

- Oh!

- Danny! What's wrong?

Burn in hell,

you little green bastard!

Did the match go out, Danny?

I say I need a four-leaf clover

One that's strong

and won't blow away

Won't you be my four-leaf clover

Be my lucky charm

that's here to stay

Dad, I'm still depressed.

I mean, come on.

Here I am in New Mexico

with my hick father

for the whole summer.

- Hey.

- No offense.

First of all, it's not New
