Watch out, sucker. Can not you see

that the light on red?

For the airport.

I almost did.

- How do you fly?

Half past nine.

We easily get that.

172, en route to McCarran.

Okay, they're waiting for you.

Good timing. Nobody leaves the

Saturday night in Las Vegas.


Can not faster?

I can not afford fine.

You have plenty of time.

If you see me as soon as possible

to the airport ...

... This is for you.


Can not it faster?

- I'm trying.

This is the shortest route,

nobody knows him.

At most two minutes, nothing more.

Rot of the road if you can not drive.

Which company?

- Never mind, keep driving.

Then get in, dick.

What the hell?

- Driving.

I want nothing to do with it.

- If they catch us, go to it.

Ride, damn.

- Shut up.

You want to die? Driving.

Shake it off.

They want to murder us.

What's happening?

What are you doing?

- Shut up.

That cost me my head. Dodging.

Watch out, they will ram us.


What do you do? Driving.

- I cover it.

McCarran is on a pedestrian

deliberately hit by a car.

The 32-year-old victim,

a casino employee ...

... Died on the spot.

According to witnesses, was Nichols

driven mercilessly to the ground.

There is a revolver found

Other clues are missing.

In further developments

notify us again.

It is clear who the perpetrators are.

The mafia loves crash carts.

What would that poor man have

been up to?

Since he does not worry about

more to make.

He seems to overstep the mark


You can not hide

You find them everywhere anyway.

I'm tired, I'm out.

See ya.

Good idea, you look awful.

I will not cheer. Until tomorrow.

Where did I honderdje?

What the hell?

That was long ago.

I missed you.

A couple of months.



I was afraid that somebody else had.

Do not lie to you.

There's too much


You know exactly how I put together.

While I ...

... Almost nothing from you about.

I do not know what work you do.

I do not know where you live.

And I have a feeling ...

... That you not use your real name.

You're the most mysterious man

I have ever met.

There are people who have secrets

should have.

And I am one of them.

I keep it a try.

Some day ...

... You wake up next to me.

And I know all about you.

It would not be so good ...

... If you knew everything about me.

I would not really happy.

Why not?

If people know about you too much,

you are far too vulnerable.

And that should never happen.

I fall asleep.

You've worn me out.

Kiss me to sleep?

Your casino has a deficit of one

million. Stolen by your manager.

I'm sorry that I have this bad

news should.

I know you lot like Al Chambers

are made.

Can you prove it?

- Yes.

You have from now nothing

to do with this case.

You keep your mouth.

You have now nothing more

it. Understood?

I understand it.


From you I had never expected, Al.

What can I do for you, Mr. Chambers?

- Two things.

My money back. And that taxi driver

must disappear.

There should be no trace left behind.

May I ask what?

Do you ever open your mouth?

You have a great reputation.

Everywhere you are regarded as a boulder.

And you're the most expensive of all.

Then you must occasionally

open your mouth?

If you had hired me before,

money was never gone.

Then you're at home lying on one ear,

instead of making you sappel.

What do you do? Call me?

Perhaps not such a bad idea.

Arrogant bastard.

Excuse me.

Sorry to bothering you ...

Could you look? Do you know something

a free gift or something?

I wondered if the alley

anticipates that thing over there ...
