Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Best wishes.

You too.


Hold it, do you want to kill her?

- What are you doing?

- She's got a chain!

Let's get out of here!

Let's just go!

God, what a state she's in!


Argo, where are you?

Is anyone here?

Help me, where's my dog?

What's your name?

Can you hear me?

Hang on...


There's one over there.

See to them.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

- Leave the report to us.

- Ok.

They're Police...

- Mine died on his own.

- I helped mine out.

It's us.

- Message received.

- Falco two to Trionfale Street.

- Hi, got anything?

- No, nothing for you.

- Thanks for the cigarette.

- Cut it out!

Pain in the ass !

- They're for...

- I bought them.

Put them back where you found them.

Nice try.

- Is the boss busy?

- Yes, tomorrow there's a burglary.

- In a jewelry store.

- Who are they?

Baldi has confirmed

three South Americans.

- Who's going ?

- The Boss will decide.


Which one of us would you f***?


- Which one?

- Both of you!

Dirty b*tch!

But who would you have first?

Not both of us together!

I'd have you, him and then

a third and a fourth.

Women have far more stamina

than men.

When a man's had enough,

a woman can have two or three

more orgasms,

it's easy for us to carry on.

Come on!

Hotshots, women have to put up with

the little satisfaction you give.

Masculine supremacy is bullshit,

You believe in Superman...

You invite us to a sumptuous banquet

but don't get past the starters.

The lady of the night has spoken!

If we fall in love

then we can put up with a lousy f***,

but I don't love you.

Fair enough,

but who would you f***?

- Both of you.

- For god's sake!

I'll meet Pasquini in an hour.

We're coming too.

Roberto Pasquini, alias Bibi,

in one hour I'll break your neck.

- Do you know where he is?

- No, a friend is going to take me.

- Some place you know?

- No, but it's the right tip-off.

I've been looking for you everywhere,

You're untraceable!


Guido, Alfredo and Antonio are here.

We have formed a special force

with new criteria.

We have a computer

that cost an arm and a leg.

With our archives memorised

it means you can act immediately

and without f***ing up!

Your informer is anonymous

But don't trust him.

- But in this case...

- l don't doubt your good faith.

Special force principles

must be respected.

- Information is checked.

- But Pasquini...

No exceptions.

And you're in my bad books.

I'm not saying you're incompetent,

But every time

you're out on a job

you leave two or three bodies behind

in bits and pieces.

- We have to put up with a lot.

- You're telling me,

I'm forced to invent reports

that are sent to the Ministry.

I'm in charge of what you do

and when you do it.

You're giving me white hairs.

- Who's taking you to Pasquini?

- Someone who deals in drugs.

But Pasquini is into

card playing joints and real estate.

He buys and sells property.

And this guys has to buy

an apartment from him.

- Why is he letting you meet him ?

- You don t get it.

It's not a fixed appointment,

I've been seeing this guy every day.

We have dinner together,

go to clubs, play cards...

By the way, the godfather

has two other joints.

A swanky place outside of Rome

and one by the sea, be careful!

My friend won't take me to him,

I'll meet them when they make

the apartment deal.

I get it.

We're meeting in an hour,

we'll go together and then...

What about this friend?

He's Neapolitan, called Sasa

and lives around here.

- Does he know where Pasquini lives?

- No-one knows.

With all respect,

what's the big deal?

If he's around, fine

if not, we'll wait.

We've been trying for three years,

another go wouldn't hurt would it?

And our reputation?

There's no point investigating him,

if Guido doesn't trust his contact

I can't authorise the operation.

How did it go this morning?

Fine, they were in front of a bank,

details were correct.

- Then?

- They died.

They crashed into a lorry.

His was disemboweled by

the gear stick.

And mine broke his back bone.

If they were on the same bike

why were there two other bikes?

- One went one way...

- And one went the other way.

So you tossed a coin

in order to decide.


Get out!

You didn't convince me before.

Men are better than women, in bed.

"Superior" and "inferior"

are phallocrat terms.

- What?

- Phallocrat.

It's having had too many lousy fucks,

and blames all men instead of just

the pansies she's been with.

Know the tale of the Fox and Grapes?

l could handle a dozen like you.

You're already tired!

- Come on!

- I'm coming.

- We'll speak about this later.

- I'm always here.

I think this club is Pasquini's

pride and joy.

- Has it ever been reported?

- No never.

Businessmen and rich kids go there.

You only get in if you're a member,

or really well known.

And we're neither.

That's why we don't want

to go in, right?

This way.

Good evening,

We'll see to the car.

Hi, nice hair!

Get the handcuffs.

- There's a car coming.

- I'll go.

- Good evening, we'll see to the car.

- Careful, it's still running.

- He's from the pasta factory.

- He's here to play

- instead of raising wages.

- What do you care ?

Ferrari-Bertinetta GT...

Drench them!

This is the factory guy's, right?

- Watch it, it's still running!
