[bird caws]


Let me play that back.

I can fix this.

If I just add a little bit bass

and a little bit of reverb,

I can make those gunshots pop.

[louder gunshots]

Better, yes?

Better is getting

this job done by Sunday.



Can you make that work?

Uh, that's not a problem.

In fact, I can have this up on

your FTP site tomorrow night.

- Just do it.

- Done.



36 hours to do five

days worth of work.

No problem.

Down you go, f*ggot.

Punk ass Miguel.

Where's our money, loser?

Get off, man!

What is this?

"Maricon," say it!

Say it.

Maricon, get off.

Let's go, before

he starts crying.

Go home, little girl!

Are you OK?

He threatened to shoot me!

Did you threaten to shoot her?

You can't believe

a word she says.

She's just after my money.

Because that's

all you care about.

OK, here's what

you need to consider.

Do you want to

resolve your issues,

or do you want to make war?

[music playing]

What up, cuz?


You the one who shot 'em down?

Did you know

that there are more

tigers privately owned by US

citizens than in the wild?

How'd it go with suits?


Really great.

They totally dig what we're

doing, what I'm doing.

In fact, thank you very much,

I have to work all weekend.

What else is new?

Just print and sign where

it says print and sign.

I don't know what the rush

is with this separate checking

account stuff.

I thought we were gonna take a

little time and think about it.


You said you were gonna

move your things out

three weeks ago, and have you?

I said I would do it.

I will do it.

I don't wanna do it.

I think we've established that

you don't know what you want,

but you can do this

one thing right now.

[pen clicking]

You know what that is?

It's the sound of your

biological clock ticking.


But just so you know, I am not

just packing an overnight bag.

I will be taking

the Chagall poster.

- What?

- Yeah.

- Oh no.

- And the espresso machine.

No, you are not taking

the Chagall poster.

- No?

- It stays exactly where it is.

And you gave me that

espresso machine.

Mark, you gave that to me.

You know, let's not do this.


Let's not do this.

Come on.



No one's gonna mess

with you if you have this.

Where'd you get that?

Do you want it or not?

We can still make this work.

How are we gonna

make it work when

you can't even sit still long

enough to have a conversation?

Because I love you.

[gun c*cks]

Cool, huh?

It's not even loaded.



Dude, get the

f*** out of here!

Hey, ma'am,

is he all right?


Are you OK?


Can you help me up?

You're bleeding.

OK, just somebody help!

We need help over here!

What happened?

I think he got shot.

I can't... why can't I move?

Ask inside if

there's a doctor.

I gotta get up.

No, don't move, don't move!

OK, I'm not.

I'm not.

You gotta put pressure

to stop the bleeding.

All right.

An ambulance is

on its way, right?

I just called 911.

You gotta elevate his leg.

You gotta sit

'em up, so he doesn't

bleed out from his chest.

You don't move them.

You don't wanna hurt their back.

Oh, f***!


No doctors in there.

It'll be OK.

Just hold on, OK?

I need air.

Can you just...

Back up.

Please, back up, OK?

Please, just move!

Here, use this.


You're gonna be OK.

All right?

I got this.

Just stay calm, OK?

And just breathe in.

Hold on.

I can fix this.



Just hold on.

We need to rewind.

I don't think

he's gonna make it.

Don't listen to them.
