Tango & Cash

Synopsis: Ray Tango and Gabriel Cash are narcotics detectives who, while both being extremely successful, can't stand each other. Crime Lord Yves Perret, furious at the loss of income that Tango and Cash have caused him, frames the two for murder. Caught with the murder weapon at the scene of the crime, the two have no alibi. Thrown into prison with most of the criminals they helped convict, it appears that they are going to have to trust each other if they are to clear their names and catch the evil Perret.

TANGO:

Okay, let's do it.

(DISPATCHER OVER RADIO)

10-4, 20 William 12.

You are eastbound,

pursuing tanker truck.

Backup is available.

Air Unit 3 is in the area.

I can handle this myself.

(PILOT OVER RADIO) This is

Air Unit 3. Forget it, Tango.

We'll take over.

Drop back.

Drop dead. I've been

on this case for 3 months.

We're out of our jurisdiction.

Sheriff and CHP are on the way.

Do whatever you're going to do.

Good luck.

Thanks.

Jesus!

He's crazy!

Shit!

Glad you could drop in.

Like jewelry?

F*ck you!

I prefer blondes.

Do the honors.

TANGO:
Captain.

SCHROEDER:
What's going on?

Letting the locals do their thing.

You blew out the truck window.

- Two guys are in the road.

- I noticed.

- We're out of our jurisdiction here.

- True.

- What's going on?

- I heard a rumor about this truck.

- What about it?

- It's not a truck.

It's a gas truck.

It's a major moving violation.

Check the first panel?

Full of gas.

We checked the whole truck!

There's nothing in it!

You're out of your neighborhood,

city boy!

I want your badge and weapon!

I want your ass!

Who do you think you are?!

He thinks he's Rambo.

Rambo...

...is a pussy.

What do you know, it's snowing!

Anybody want to get high?

DEPUTY:

I'll be damned!

Not bad for a city guy.

PERRET:

Ray Tango.

He's done it to us again.

If it isn't Tango, it's Cash.

Tango and Cash!

Cash and Tango!

These two cops are driving me crazy.

We must do something about this.

I agree. I would like

to handle this myself, Mr. Perret.

No, we will handle it.

No.

Not that way.

I have something else in mind.

BO Y:

Hey, Cash!

Armani with a badge!

(CAR STARTS)

Look out!

CASH:

Police business!

MAN:

This is my car!

Move!

MAN:

What are you doing to my car?!

Son of a bitch!

What's wrong?

Got a headache?

You crazy!

What did you do with my car?!

I believe in perestroika!

Welcome to America!

DETECTIVE:

Tango, I saw your picture in the paper.

OFFICER:

Ray, look at this.

Blind luck!

OFFICER:
Catherine's in your office.

TANGO:
That's great!

TANGO:

You just don't take off...

...on the spur of the moment. It's...

CATHERINE:

What?

Illogical?

- Very!

- It's not that big a deal.

I'll be gone a month or two.

It takes that long to build a house,

not take a vacation.

A dance tour is not a vacation!

I just want to get away.

You have all you need in this town.

Grime, crime and slime.

No, thanks. I 'd rather go.

Okay, but give me the phone numbers

so I can reach you.

Why don't I call you?

Why don't you call me?

Catherine, if you feel stressed,

don't run away.

Stay and we'll deal with this together.

Don't make me feel guilty.

I just need some time alone, okay?

I promise, Lieutenant,

to be a good girl.

There it is!

The key word.

"Good."

You're telling me you'll be good

because you know...

...automatically, I think you'll be bad.

Yes?

What's a margin call?

Why?

Your stockbroker's on line 3.

Don't leave.

Hold on.

I have a plane to catch.

Catherine, don't go.

Think positive.

Shit!

Harvey, it's me.

OFFICER:
It's good you wore a vest.

CASH:
Hardly needed it with these.

CASH:

Half-Ioad soft lead slugs.

This guy was really sloppy.

Look at this.

This shirt cost $9.

Get me a new vest, okay?

Whoa, pizza!

Who was f*cking with my gun?

The sight's shifted.

DETECTIVE:
Maybe you dropped it.

CASH:
I didn't drop it.

CASH:

Captain!

Get anything out of him?

No, he doesn't speak English.

Our interpreter says he wants a lawyer.

Let me question him.

The guy who just tried

to blow you away? Forget it!

HOLMES:

Stay away from him, Gabe.
