- Excuse me.

- Yeah?

I'm looking for a mechanic.

Anybody here fit that description?

I might be able to help you.

What do you need?

I have to get it fixed right away. I need

someone who knows what they're doing.

I'm not that busy.

So, what's the problem?

I'm not sure. Maybe you ought to

get under the hood and check it out.

Yeah, maybe I better.

Looks okay from here.

Great customer service.

Little bit of cleaning,

little bit of paint...

...this place will be ready

for business.

About time for me to play

in the Super Bowl.

Those guys are gonna take you apart.

Okay, we're gonna do it this time!


- Okay, ready?

- Yeah!


To the left. You can do it. Cut back.

Here it comes.

All right!

Okay, suckers walk. Suckers walk.

Hey. Hey, suckers walk.

Go on. Suckers walk. Come on.

Suckers walk!

- Hey, Frankie, what's that mean?

- It means everything's okay.

So how do you think I did?

Pretty good with the sixth graders.

You really know how to make a guy

feel great, you know that?

What's the matter?

We don't look too happy today?

I'm missing you already.

Pretty soon you'll be so sick

of seeing me...

...you'll pray to have some time

on your own. You know that?

- I don't believe you.

- Yeah, believe it.

Now that's Italian.

- I gotta go.

- No. No.

- I gotta go. Yes. Yes.

- No. No.

So I'm not so good against 10-year-olds?

I should try a different sport?

Yeah, golf.

- Golf?

- Yeah.

- Wanna see my swing?

- I'd like to see you in whites.

- Some swing.

- You see me on the golf course?

You're lucky I have a sense of humour.

I would take that personal.

Time to go to work.

- All right, be good.

- Bye.

Wait a minute.

I got something for you.

What's this?

It's supposed to bring you luck.

It's nice.


I could use it.

- How'd it go, Frank? Good furlough?

- The best.

- Did you see that game?

- I have to admit, I missed it.

- It was awesome.

- Was it?

- Yes. You missed a good one.

- I missed a good one?

- I had more fun than you this weekend.

- I bet you did.

Here you go, Roger.

- How's the diesel running, Jimmy?

- Forget it. It stops, it stalls.

- It don't go.

- You got water in the fuel line.

Open your mouth.

- You sure?

- I'd bet time on it.

- Take it off.

- All right.

I'll see you later, Jimmy.

- I'll give you more starch next time.

- Yeah, do that.

Say hi to the wife.

How you doing there, man?

Frank! What'd you bring me?

Here you go. Go kill yourself.

- I thought you'd bring me a girl.

- I had one...

...but the guards decided to keep her.

I can't depend on you.

Let me ask you something else.

- Did you go see the garage?

- It's beautiful.

- No garage I ever stuck up was beautiful.

- This one is.

Can I tell you something?

I'm getting out soon. I don't come cheap.

But you know I know my way

around cars. You need help, call me.

- I fix them, I don't steal them.

- I was framed.

What? I was framed.

- What is this, Jimmy?

- I don't know, but it's official.

Crack 210.

- On your feet, Leone.

- What do you want?

- Take him.

- What are you doing here?

- You're being transferred.

- Transferred where?

- That's not necessary.

- Step back! He's in our custody now.

You got the wrong guy!

Transferred where?

Talk to me. Where am I going?

- Get in there now!

- Where am I going?


Where are we going?

Hey! Talk to me!

Let's go, Leone. Come on!

- Get his ass out here!

- Come on, get out!

- Where the hell are we? I wanna know!

- Shut up!

You got the wrong man!

You made a mistake!

There's no mistake.

Welcome to Gateway, Leone.
