The Big Bounce
For a long time I've been walking
down life's road with my two pals...
...bad luck and bad choices.
Fortunately, I'm a big believer
in new beginnings, new friends...
...and running from my problems.
So one day I decided to head
for the Islands.
Aloha. My name is Jack.
Start here. All the way down the line.
Ain't gonna get no work done today with
these Menehune huggers blocking the site.
Mr. Ritchie's gonna take care
of these a**holes, chop-chop.
I've got a hotel to build. I don't care how
many Hawaiians got their blood spilled here.
If they so much as scratch
Mr. Ritchie's car when he shows, he'll sh*t.
Yeah, I'll get up there. Now, take it easy
on me because I got a bad shoulder here.
-Serve me one up.
-What are you doing?
-I'll smack one down Frank's throat.
-I'm gonna hit one.
-Put your tool belt on.
Harris, ease up.
We're just having some fun.
Yeah, Frank, you get back to work.
What? Just like that? No more game?
You'll go back to desecrating
these people's land, blowing up palm trees?
We can go blow up palm trees later.
I just want one pitch.
Come on, I think it's messing
with our karma.
-I need the work.
-Yeah, you do.
-Come on, Frank, be part of us.
-Hey, you shut up, coconut n*gger.
Did he just say "coconut n*gger"? Harris,
Harris, Harris, you can't say coconut n*gger.
-Oh, I can't?
-Well, not really in this day and age.
-Get off the premises.
-These aren't your premises. This is..
-Are you joking?
-I'm gonna kick your ass.
-Kick my ass? This is a bat.
-It's just aluminum.
-Just a wimp.
No, but I'll hit you because
you're really big and crazy...
...and you're scaring me right now.
I'm gonna hit you.
That dislocated the jaw.
Walter, let me read you
Mr. Harris' statement.
"l found Jack and some others playing
ball. I politely asked them to stop...
...as Mr. Ritchie would not be happy
with this situation.
I told Jack he was under my supervision
When he told me to do an unprintable thing.
So I told him to put the bat down, but he
came at me before I could defend myself."
And got fungoed.
-So, what do you think, judge?
-Good, quick hands.
He's also got an interesting rap sheet.
Got a couple of breaking and enterings,
He's got a bunco rap here. Suspected of
conning a police officer out of some money.
-They always wind up here, don't they?
-Hawaii is sort of the end of the line.
They never seem to go on to Tokyo.
We ought to put him in jail,
let him work on his swing a bit.
Let's just keep an eye on him.
He did manage to shut down
Ray Ritchie's construction site for a bit.
Standup guy in my book.
I hope you enjoyed your stay with us.
Just sign that at the bottom.
Your company was kind enough to dropped off your paycheck...
...which ought to be a good head start
in getting you off the island.
I had a harp, a harmonica.
A Hohner. You didn't see..?
a prisoner's used harmonica?
Would you like to look back
in your cell for 30 more days for it?
No, I wouldn't.
You can pick a new one
up at waialua--
Why don't you buy one in Honolulu, sport.
I'll put you on the Pearl Shuttle today.
That's all right. I'll see you.
You don't work for me anymore,
so I don't have to help you out.
I will tell you something
for your own good.
Go back to the mainland.
What, miss the big surf season?
Are you crazy? I live for these big waves.
You club a foreman in front of his men,
someone will knife you...
...so fast you won't even feel it.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
