Nothing to Lose

Synopsis: When a man (Robbins) believes he has discovered that his wife is having an affair with his boss, it sets off a chain reaction of events. First he wanders into a ghetto where a robber (Lawrence) tries to take his money at gunpoint, but instead sets a wild ride from California to Arizona. The two eventually become reluctant friends. Discussing robbery techniques, they decide to get back at the boss by robbing an office safe containing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Life is further complicated by another pair of robbers who chase the first two for infringing on their territory.

Where do I start?

It's not you.

Well, actually, it is you.

Look, I'm just not...

I'm not attracted

to you any more.

I need space.

You kinda...

You kinda gross me out.

In the beginning, it was different.

In the beginning, you were better.

But then I got to know you

real well, and...

l... I came to realize...

that you're a fat idiot.

- I got ya. I got ya. I got ya. I got ya.

- Okay. Okay.

- Okay, okay, okay. Let me try it.

- You gotta be straight.

- Okay.

- Straight face.

- Okay, okay.

- All right.

- I want a divorce.

- Why?

It's a physical thing.

- Physical?

- I've been experimenting

with other men lately.

A lot of other men

and women.

I don't know. I mean, Antonio can do

this thing with his tongue...

and William's stamina

is amazing.

And as far as hands go,

well, your father's hands are...

You are no match.

I have no equal.

Get down here.

If the shoe fits

I want you to wear it

and wear it good

Sulkin'about them times

when I was by myself

I was always lookin'

for somebody else

But as time went on

I had a talk with my mind

Friends like you and you

I gotta leave behind

And I'm sayin'call me a fool

'Cause you only rub it in

- And I'll never see you if I had known

- I'll never see them again

'Cause, well I know the difference

Just stay in my own business

And I'll never, ever

depend on you

Friends and enemies

around me every day

I can't believe

the things they say

Takin'me for granted

Give me no credit at all

I'll just keep bouncin'

like a bouncin'ball

I don't wanna step

on nobody's foot but

You call me a fool

but you only rub it in

And I'll never see you

if I had known

I'll never see that again

'Cause, well I know the difference

Just stay in my own business

And I'll never, ever

depend on you


B-B-Brickman's Powerboats!

Get it?

Brickman's sells powerboats.

We make the company mascot

a powerboat. What do you think?

- I like it. Good work, Alan.

- Yes!

- Zachary, you're up.

- All right. I just wanna show you...

- Ladies and gentlemen, Zachary!

- Yes, sir. No...

I haven't taken these to the focus group

yet. I'm still working on that part.

But I just wanted to let you know

these are just preliminary sketches.


Ladies and gentlemen, introducing

the new mascot for Hidy Ho Cookies...


What... What is it?

- Zippy.

- What is Zippy?

- He's a cookie man.

- He's a cookie man?

What is that, uh,

on the ground behind him?

Oh, that's a trail of chocolate chips.

See, wherever Zippy goes...

he leaves this magical trail of

chocolate for all the boys and girls...

Magical? This... This looks like poop.

It looks like piles of poop.

- It looks like Zippy's walking around,

Ju... just crapping all over the place.

- Stop.

- It looks like...

- No, no. Those are chocolate chips.

- Emma, what do you think it looks like?

- Excrement.

Zach, let's just say

you're about to take a big bite

of a juicy chocolate chip cookie?

What's the last image you want

floating through your head?

- Excrement?

- Excrement. Right.

Listen, I wanna go out on a limb here.

I'm gonna say maybe we should avoid...

all bowel-related items

with this particular product.

- Just a hunch, you know?

- I'll work up something different.

- All right. Thanks.

- Nick Beam's offce.

- Oh, hi, Ann.

- Ooh, aah...

- It's your wife.

Everybody out.

Big business deal.

- Hello.

- Now we're still on for tonight.

You stood me up twice, you know?

It's a done deal. New York

Philharmonic. Last night in town.

I'll be escorting

the sexiest woman in the world.
