Shoot the Duke

77 min

The duke is dead, boss.

Do me a favour,

don't call him the duke.

He's dead.

He came out of the hotel just

like he was meant to.

That, uh, cop, was with him...


What happened?

They walked to his car nice and slow and

Frank has the duke right in his visor.

Is Mardukas dead?


Is Mardukas dead?

Did, uh, did you just hear the story,

he got shot in the head?

Yeah, I heard.

But you don't hear me, huh?

Did you idiots make sure that he is dead?


You say "What" one more time, I'll shoot

Hey, I'm serious.

I shot him in the head, Joe.

He shot (on) him right in the head.

Okay. It's a very simple question

and I want a very simple answer.

Is he dead? Yes or No?

I think, Joe, if you shoot somebody in the

head, yes, he should be dead.

Alright, sure, you know, okay.

There is a teeny-weeny little chance

A teeny-weeny?

But, a tiny-winy...

Tiny-winy, teeny-weeny..

Are you two shit for brains, totally stoned! ?

It isn't that hard, is it! ?

You're supposed to kill Mardukas.

Pop a cap in him, blow him up,

burn him, chop him into

pieces, cut his throat,

drown him, nail him to a cross.

I don't give a shit.

The only thing I care about is: is he dead,

yes or no?.

He certainly looked dead.

Okay you two dipshits.

You go and find Mardukas now.

Boss, the man has a bullet in his head.

We've so many things to take care of.

That's a waste of time.

You know what's a waste of time?

Talking to you is a waste of time!

If he's dead, that's good.

But you call me immediately and

you bring me his head.

You got one hour. Go


What? Why what?

You know what? You don't call me in time,

I'm gonna send in the cavallery.

Yeah, the cavallery. 59 minutes.



Okay, bro, relax...

Come here, 1..2..3..


Can you hear?

You said you have something to tell me, what?

What did you want to say?

I ain shooting nobody without coffee

in my Blood.

If you would've made sure Marduakes is dead,

we wouldn't be in this shit right now.

How do you think?

Do you think Duke is dead or not?

How could I know?

You pulled the trigger!

What if I really killed him?

I, I'm just trying to say that...

I like it. Mardukas's the Duke.

It's a nice Nickname the Duke.

Even the accountant has a nickname.

They call me Dirty Harry.

The accountant they call the Duke

and you don't have a nickname?

What the hack do I need a nickname for?

Frank, that's my name.

Yeah Frank, Frank what?

Frank like in Frankfurt. You know what?

That's a major German capital.

They even named a major German capitol after me,


First of all, it's a German city bro,

it's not the capitol.

Get your facts straight.

And second of all,

Frankenstein, huh? Like in Einstein, see?

That's how smart I am.

You know what? That's what I'm gonna call you,

Frankenstein. Real smart.

You got problems. You know we are going to

a hospital right now?

Check if they've a psych department.

You should check yourself in there.

Yeah, Harrystein, let's go get a cappuccino,

low fat, no sugar diet, you know?

What're you talking about?

You know what? Joe's right, you're stoned.


God, you're such an asshole.

What're you talking about?

I'm talking about how you always

keep your nose clean.

I do the dirty work, you get the laurels.

And when it all goes to shit,

then you don't want anything to do with it.

Seriously? I don't wanna talk about this.

What're you saying?

And these constant questions for answers.

Man, that's getting on my tits.

You never ask a question.

How am I suppose to give you an answer?

You were suppose to turn left here.
