You talk, we cut your face, hear?

Your purse. Put it in my hand, b*tch.

I said put it in my hand!

You busted my mouth!

- Come on, he-man.

- I'll cut you, man.

I got the hots for ya.

Drop it. Drop it!

Drop it!

You got one more shot to drop it, man.

- I'll cut you, man.

- Come on, badass.

Come on. Cut me, badass.

Come on. Come for me.

Come on.

Come on! Come on, badass.

You got the right to a legal counsel.

You have the right to remain silent.

And anything you say can be

used in a court of law against you.


Oh! Excuse me.

- Oh, it's warm in here.

- Isn't it, though?

- May I help you with anything?

- Yes, yes. Something special.

Oh, yes. I think you might be

interested in something like this.

That's good. What is it?

I think you'd be interested in this

more, sir. Would you like to smell it?

- What do you think?

- Would you wrap it up for me?

- I'll be back in a couple of minutes.

- All right.

You really are very pretty.

Well, thank you.

United Press.

I have an announcement to make

for your international wire.

The Wulfgar Command has just struck

a blow against British colonialism.

Be warned that I have a long arm...

...and I'm prepared to fight

my enemies wherever they may be.

Don't forget...

...there's no security.


- Put your hands up! Against the wall!

- Move! Move!

What the f*** is this sh*t?

How much sh*t you want, man?

How much for this motherfuckin' sh*t?

- Who you talkin' to?

- You, pig!

- Who the f*** you talkin' to?

- You, pig! How much money you want?

- Shut up, man.

- Shut up, my ass! How much...?

I want you to pay for every life you've

wasted on this sh*t, motherf***er!

- Motherf***er!

- Let him go, Matt.

That ain't worth it, man.

I said he ain't worth it.

Let him go, Matt.

Matt, let him go.

If I ever see you again,

I'm gonna kill you.

Do you hear me? I'm gonna kill you.

Now you get over there.

Now move! Move!


All right, keep your hands up. Let's go.

We're all goin' downtown. Come on.

Come on, kid.

- I could use some coffee. You?

- Yeah, sure.

I went to a party last night.

I'm not used to this nightlife.

- How does that feel?

- Good. Both sides look OK.

- Let the lady out.

- I'll be cool.

Wait a minute. We got things to do now.

- Why do you have to see her now?

- Just cover me for ten minutes.

- I want to see her now, that's all.

- Excuse me, ma'am.

- I'll call on her. Don't worry.

- Don't hang around too long, OK?

- I'll be ten minutes.

- Well, hurry up.

Take your hat off, at least. Jesus Christ.

Please, let me help you out.

Irene, I think the pleat you added

to my summer-skirt design is fantastic.

Incidentally, there's an important

buyer coming by in a few days.

It might be a good career move for you

if you'd escort him to dinner and such.

Think it over.

Deke, what are you doing back here?

I came up the back way so I didn't

embarrass you in this get-up.

Very chic(!)

Why are you dressed like that?

Me and Fox just got back from the Bronx.

- Were you cruising?

- Nah, dope bust.

- You all right?

- Oh, yeah, fine.

- So how are you doin'?

- Great. Yeah.

- Being promoted next week, even.

- Is that right? That's good.

Why did you come by? I've gotta get back

to work. I've got a million things to do.

Well, I was wonderin'

if maybe later tonight...

...we could spend some time together?

What do you want from me, Deke?

- What do you want from me?

- What?

Look, maybe I made a few mistakes.

I admit that, all right?

Look, you wouldn't like living

with me again. You really wouldn't.

- Irene, I know what I like.
