Merry Christmas.

Watch it!

Thank you very much.

We wish you a Merry Christmas ...

- Check this dude.

- He looks like the Five-0.

Are you a cop?

He's no Five-0. He's been drinking.

He's checking out the D.

We have two Hispanic males.

Let's see if they end the game.

- This looks familiar.

- He's got a slice. Stay alert.

He's got my ring.

Sh*t! He's wearing my watch.

Nobody go

until you see him pull his lapel.

- Sh*t!

- F***ing white boy!


Get out of my way!


- Get out of the way!

- Come on, grandma.

- No laying down on the job!

- I'm glad my pain amuses you.

Come on. Move!


Slow down.

You've got cops down there?

All trains north and south of

Wall Street Station stop and stay.

- Doesn't he ever sleep?

- Yeah, during the day. In a coffin.

- You're stopping trains. Why?

- We've got cops in the tunnel.

- Where is the revenue train?

- At Wall Street.

- Send it through.

- We've got cops on the track.

Nothing stops the money train.

- The money train!

- I've got a new plan.

Get out of my way!

- Here's the cash.

- You sold a lot of tokens today.

Watch it!

- Freeze!

- They're not stopping.

- I don't believe this sh*t!

- We're cops.

- Back up, men.

- Look. it's the Transit Twins.

- Did you have to shoot him?

- He's a f***ing kid.

- We're only following orders.

- Does he look like a train robber?

Don't try to hang the blame on us.

- You ran him down the track.

- What did you say?

You're not gonna hit him ...

I'm gonna hit him.

Chief, the detectives are here.

Sit down.

- Don't bleed on my chair.

- No sir. Chief Patterson.

That report says you're brothers.

You are a negro.

He is white.

Is somebody trying to jack me off?

- No. we're foster brothers.

- I ran away from this orphanage ...

Shut up!

Today, you caused my money train

to arrive 46 minutes late.

When my train is late, I take it

as a personal sign of disrespect.

The revenue collection of the entire

subway system is under my command.

My train. My people. My money.

No one dictates the movements

of that train without my permission.

- Am I making myself clear?

- As a bell. sir. Your train.

- Shut up!

- Yes. sir.

Now ... any questions?

Why did you send the train through

when you knew we were in the tunnel?

Your situation last night

didn't affect me.

Your men shot that kid to sh*t

over a rope chain.

Yeah, they shot him to sh*t ... and

you can't buy publicity like that.

That boy is a goddamn hero.

Thanks to his sacrifice

the word went forth today:

You f*** with my train

and I'll kill you!

Now I'm gonna send one more message:

I don't like you.

So don't f*** with my train again.

If you do, we will tangle ass ...

... and you will lose.

You're dismissed.

I hate bastards like that.

You can't put a price on human life.

- He's worried about his schedule.

- You know what I'd like to do?

- Shoot him?

- No. I'd like to take his train.

- Take the candy from the baby.

- You say the word.

- Word.

- I'm there.

- Let's do it.

- If I didn't have this badge ...

- We're not nuns.

- We're not taking the train.

Too late.

- I sure miss the old neighbourhood.

- You should come back more often.

- Are you coming in?

- No, I've got a date.

With a girl ...

or a deck of cards?

- Do you think I'm gambling again?

- Yeah, I can see it in your eyes.

- You've got a suspicious mind.

- I know you.

Have you got any cash?

- I'm buying your Christmas present.

- With my money?

Yeah, so don't be stingy.

- You never cease to amaze me.

- Don't count it. I trust you.

- Will you really buy me a present?
