You look like shit, man.

I'm all right.

Keep telling yourself that.

That right there?

That is the best homework assignment

the city ever came up with.

Yeah. Me and the kid start this weekend.

That is, of course, unless Amanda botches

everything up, like she always does.

I could have Monica give her a call.

They always got along pretty well.

You know, Eddie, I appreciate it,

but it's best if you stay out of it.

Yo, D'Mac, what's up?

Yeah, I'm interested. What do you got?

Haitians. Boyle Heights.

Yeah, I know the place.

Ya yo changing hands.

You really wanna mess with

this low-level shit?

Yeah, let's go.

- Are we good?

- All signs point to it.

Which one of you gentlemen

is gonna sign for this?

Nice suit.

I heard there was a problem with the toilet?

All right, fellas.

We got less than one hour. Let's go.


- Police, freeze!

- Shit!

- Get him!

- On the floor, God damn it!


Don't move!

- You got him?

- He got away.

- What?

- He got away!


Not a word, Welles. Not a goddamn word!

Son of a bitch!


What the...

Chief. We got a problem with the elevators.

- Get down!

- And stay down!

Now that I have your attention,

get on the floor, right now!

- Take it easy, take it easy.

- Everyone!

- You, too, come on!

- Get down!

Everything's reading "Malfunction."

- The hell is this?

- I don't know.

We're not here to hurt you!

You stay calm, you go home for dinner,

you understand me?

Don't look at me.

Nobody move! And get down on the floor!

Shut up!

We got a naughty one here.

Jesus! FedCal, the bank.

All right, that's it, bad girl.

Now we get to go make a phone call.


- News 14 hotline.

- Tell them there's a robbery in progress.

I'm from the FedCal Bank, downtown LA.

There's a robbery in progress.

- Are they still in the bank?

- They're still...

Are they...

Come on, man, let's get out of here.

Let's go!


Get down!

Hey, guys, a bank robbery.

We're headed downtown.

Let's go, now!

- I got the back!

- I'm on it!

They left the bank using the stairs!

All exits are covered.

Look, on the roof, a guard! Land it!

- We're not cleared for this.

- We're first on the scene. Land us, now.

Let's go!

Get the camera out.

Are you okay?

- No!

- Get on the ground!

Get on the ground!

Get out of the chopper now!

Take a seat next to your friends!

What a bunch of dummies! Good boy.

Nothing but glorified paparazzi!

Get us out of here!

There goes Channel 14 going the wrong way.

That's why they're in last place.

Come on, Rivers, you're a free man.

You're out of here.

Any vacant floors?

Yeah, 26 is under construction.

You got security cameras on that floor?

Not in the construction area.

Have forensics go over it.

You'll pick up prints

from half the damn city.

Do it anyway.

- You got it.

- Okay.

Went down pretty fast. We got a mixed crew.

Apparently, one of the guys

had some type of an accent.

- How much did they take?

- North of two million.

Some of the bills might be marked.

Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky.

So, they used C-4 to knock out the elevators.

Residue's being sent to the lab now.

Thanks. Automatic weapons,

precision timing.

Shape charges.

Degree of difficulty is off the charts.

They were hot shit, no doubt about that.

It'll make it that much sweeter

when we take them down.


What is it you want?

You Sergei?

Mikhail, from in the joint, sent me.


Y'all having fun, huh?

Not so fast, my man.

Show me ID.


Think about it.

Cool down.

We... We have vodka

and take care of business, huh?

That's what I thought you'd say.
