We're now three days into

the punishing extreme heat

that is beating down much

of the west this weekend.

And we're afraid to say,

it's not over yet.

The heat has claimed

at least one life in Nevada,

and the cumulative effect

of daily triple-digit highs

are being felt in other ways, even

grounding some commercial flights.

It's simply too hot to fly.

Again today, heat warnings

and advisories

are posted

in parts of eight states

as temperatures soar to

the 110s, even toward the 120s.

And the desert southwest at 119.

Phoenix experienced its

fourth hottest day in history.

The west is used to

sizzling summer temperatures,

but this week has been brutal.

We've just learned that

Las Vegas is once again

expected to have

its hottest day in 10 years.

Two hikers had to be rescued

after getting stuck

in the sweltering conditions.

Death Valley baking at 128 degrees, just

shy of the world record set a century ago.

We are approaching

the prison chapel.

Roger that.

Hey, who the f*ck is this?

- It's Joey Bishop.

- I wanna be Sammy.

- Oh, for f*ck's sake. Take it.

- Oh, come on guys.

Hey chief, this better be

the only face you remember.

- Open the cage, Carl.

- John?

- John, what are you...

- Carl, you didn't get the text?

- What the f*ck is going on?

- I don't think he got the text.

He must have AT&T.

Come on.

Be a good little boy

and sit in the corner.

Okay. 30 seconds.

Just take the 100s.


Let's move.

You're never gonna get out

of here with that money.

We'll be out of here

before you, chief.

Gentlemen, welcome

to the Top of the World.

Who are you guys supposed to be?

We're the bad guys.

Hey! It's the Back Street Boys!

It's the Rat Pack.

- Who's that?

- That's Joey Bishop.

You don't even look

anything like Joey Bishop.

Well, you don't look

like Marilyn Monroe.

- What the f*ck?

- I'm not. I'm Jayne Mansfield.


Hey, did you see

that fucking sign?

Nobody's supposed

to be on the roof.

Where's Pike?

Don't even think about it.

F*ck it, man.

Don't even get dental.

We've been hit. Seal all exits.

- Copy.

- Wait for backup. I'm on my way.

- Just do it.

- Don't...

God is the main line

Tell him what you want

Jesus is on the main line

Tell him what you want

Jesus is on the main line

Tell him what you want

You got to call him up

and tell him what you want

Call him up and

tell him what you want


Shall we pray?

Thank you, our Heavenly Father,

for we have sinned.

And though the wages of sin

be death,

salvation is at hand.

Though the flesh be evil,

the soul can be redeemed.

Cleansed by the blood of Our

Lord Jesus Christ and Savior.

Let us not be punished for

our past sins, oh Lord,

but judged for what lies

within our hearts.

Let us not be destroyed

by the fire and brimstone.

If but 20 righteous are found,

I pray thee Lord, spare us

for the sake of the 20.

Yea, if but 10 among us

are found to be righteous,

I beg thee, Lord,

do not destroy us for the 10.

For redemption is at hand.

In the name of the Father...

the Son...

and the Holy Ghost.


Yo, yo, Cole. You see

that shit in there?

That was some grassy knoll

shit, motherfucker.

Did you see his head?

Bam, dude! Ha-ha! Do that...

Chapel transport, check in.

Hey Charlie, how's the sermon

today? You repent your sins?

- Hi sweetheart, how are you?

- Okay. I'm good.

Listen, a little concerned

about the bingo game.

- Yeah.

- What is Bishop doing that for?

I'm not... I'm not sure.

I haven't talked to him.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- Ladies. Babe.

- I told you, 7:
