I do not know what you want me

The first thing you learn as fathers is to know

when your children are lying to you

You're lying to me

And if you don't stop..

I going to use one of those tortures your people

are so famous for on your little body

until you tell me what I want to know

for the last time

Give me the numbers

If you count in this way, it should be 350

If counted another way , it should be 365.

Only one way is correct, Mr Su,

Mei, we should transfer you to another school

But all my friends are here, and I have mom..

You are too smart, gifted, you should go to a

special school, you can make new friends.

We are your friends always. I've heard the children

in Beijing are very nice, you will have a happy life there.

I dont like the numbers at all, I like my friends.

I dont want to make new friends, I dont like maths.

You go there to do maths, we will write to you...

send mail to Beijing every week.

You promise?

Sure, you'd like us to lose a famous friend?

We are always here for you Mei....AAh.

Mom, enough

You've no right to be here.

You should be in jail

until you put him in a comma

which frankly I did not give a sh*t about

but you cost me a million dollars

which nothing compared what you cost to Cheski

You recognize the name?

I bet on you big time to take a dive

and he was going to take out on me too

because he know i'm the schmuck that

set this hold thing up

unless I delivered your head with

a down-payment

You know how the Russians are

Ah Mei, your brain doesn't work well..

She's not my classmate,

She's my friend.

She said your brain is like a computer.

I have spoke with your teacher,

he also said so.

You know that eh, very nice, I dont like computers,

you know why? They leave traces...

They also said..

Go away, go away..

You won't forget what you said,

will you?

Now pay attention, arrange them back!

You don't want your mom to die do you?

Good, good, it seems your teacher and friend are correct.

Mr Qui told me your dad went away when you were a child, eh?

You can count on us

to take good care of your mom.

Well, your new dad will take care of you overseas,

In return, I want you to help us to count...

of a though guy

No fighting?

floor like a dog who wants to die?

Sorry it had to so messy

...

I'm not a doctor, but I think she

was eating for a two

like "Charlie Manson" fella then

My father was going to send someone else, but....

I'm making my bones

You're making your bones by killing

someone who could hurt you back

And who would that be?

You?

Well, why not?

You just killed your wife

I didn't kill her, you did

Look you want to crack me?

Good

I would like to see you try

Get it over with

You cost my father money,

make my family look bad

now we going to make an

extra special example of you

So, we looked into your record

not much to find

fight for city, garbage collectors,

sanitation

Good benefits but no glamor

Father and mother dead

no brothers or sisters

which is too bad

because I would like to take them from you too

but you love your wife

we know that

So, here's the deal

your free to go

but we will have rise up

Not always

but when you least expected

we'll be there

anyone you try to make

friends with or even talk to

or to eat Hot Dogs

you'll die

like your wife

because of you

Of course you can always end it, jump off

a bridge, throw yourself in front of a train

damn your eternal to hell

If you believe that kind of bullshit

Trust me, I don't

so I go for it if I were you

but I am not you

Thank God

So do what you want

If you're still here tomorrow,

we're going to kill the land lady

What's her name?, Balovsky is it?

Ms. Balovsky

clean up the mess, garbage man

Alright, she's your daughter, she an

american citizen

Immigration asked what the deal

is with her that's your business

I going tell you

pulling strings is hard work

and hard work don't come free

your price, Captain Price Wolf?

Chinatown precinct goes up 20%

Bronx on the 21, Brooklyn division

each goes up 10%

monthly

That a steep price for passports

and papers for a little girl

things are though all over me

Chinatown get up 10%, Bronx and

Brooklyn will set on the current rate

and the factory wont start shooting at

cops and their family in their street like dogs
