Can't we just

send a driver?

They're friends,

not guests.

Did you remind Tim

that the people are coming

with the new furniture?


Sweetie, can you pretend

that we're running a business?

If I wanted to work, I would

have stayed in New York.

I'm going

I'm going

Hey buddy, the new furniture

should be here in about an hour.

You're gonna have

to sign for it, okay?


You know, I don't know

why someone who spent

become a doctor of divinity

instead of a real doctor.

You could really help

some people, you know?

I wanna help

people with this.

I tell ya what, why don't

you just forget everything,

stay with us here

in paradise?

I wanna help other

people find paradise.

Yeah, stepped in it

that time, huh?

Oh, there's my

master's voice.

See ya later.


Yup, yup,

yup, yup, YUP

Sorry, honey.

I told him.

See ya, son.


I got him.

He's outside of Deville's.

You have a positive ID?


It's him.

Is he

carrying any suitcases?


Well, you hold your position.

I'll have a team there

in a half-hour.

Half an hour?

He could be gone in 5 minutes.

Let me take him now.

That's a negative.

I only want this guy

carrying drugs or money.

That's not necessary.

We've got

a fugitive warrant.

He's been indicted

on two RICO cases.

And he's gonna

walk on both.

I want this guy.

We need hard evidence.

I want him in jail.

You stay in your car

and you just watch him.

What's up?

See that guy

over there?

What guy?

The white

guy with the beard

I think you and I are the

only two whites around here.

What's wrong?

Someone you recognize?


But he seemed

to know me.

This is all you'll need.

Cameron will meet you

at the Anantara Resort.

It's a lovely place, although

it's taken on the stench

of death as of late.

Cameron will provide you

with police protection

as long as you're

in the providence.

But once you're out of here,

you're on your own.

I hear that this is

your last shipment.

May I ask why?

I had enough.

You've had enough?

Well, that makes you

a very dangerous man, Bruno.

Our entire society's

built on having more,

bigger house, faster car,

more beautiful woman.

What if everyone decided

they'd had enough?

Our entire world order

would come tumbling down.

The day you have enough, Bruno,

is the day you die.

If I didn't

know you better...

I'd call that a threat.

Sound like a threat

to you, Charlie?

Sounds like a threat

to me, Bruno.

I bet you want

more, Charlie, don't you?

A little more

never hurt anybody.

White man.

It's Caperna.

See you around, Deville.

Bye, Bruno.

Vaya con Dios.


take the phone.

Wait for me

at the hotel.

- Here, you take this.

- No, you keep it.

Go ahead.

What took you so long?

Release him.

What, what?

Wait, wait.

What do you-

what do you think you're doing?

I'm releasing this man.

We have no evidence

he's committed any crime

in this country.

He's wanted in the

United States of the America.

Do you have an

international arrest warrant?

I'm sure we do,

back at the office.

But you don't

have it here.


you're free to go.

Thank you.

See ya around,

Ricky boy.

Wait, you can't

release him!

I've been chasing

him for 5 years!

You bring me

the right paperwork,

I'll pick him up

for you.

How much is he

paying you?

You're under arrest.

Arrest me?

Arrest you!

How much are

they paying you?!

Take him away.


Well, that didn't

take long.

We need to be packed up

and out of here in 5 minutes.

Let's go.

Where is it?

There isn't any more.

You've got

to get me some.

Next week you'll have enough
