The Forger.

Good morning.

Hey, Cutter.

Your lawyer is here.

There is literally nothing left for me to do,

your appeal was denied.

Look, you got a little shy of eleven months...

Ten months!

Ten months. Whatever...

That's better, right?

Just ride it out.

You are going to do the time right.

Call Keegan.

- No.

- Call him.


As your attorney, I advise you just to ride out

the eleven months.

Ten months! Martin, call him.


SUV huh?

You know Daphne.

What are you going to do?

So, what the f*ck, Ray?

Nine months to go and what.

You called Keegan?

Why would you do that?

That's such a wicked price to pay,

you know.


You're still going to tell me what's going on, right?

Oh yeah.

I'll tell you.

Jesus Christ!

What the hell are you doing here?

You're not on the run, are you?

Yeah pop, I tunnel out.

Oh, that's funny.

Where is he?


How the f*ck did you get out, Raymond?





How did you get out?

I know it's hard to believe but,

judge granted my appeal.

I don't know you are into all this.

What are you working on?

That's good.

It's just plastic pieces.

Yeah, but you got to put them together and

paint all the details...


Let's not do this, okay?




How did it go?


He has some tests..

.. tomorrow.

I like to think you didn't do something foolish...

Just to be here.

Oh, f*ck it.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.

Thank you.

Guys, got to get through.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.



I was just now standing there,

with my dick in my hand,

I'm shaking it off and

thinking to myself.

Wonder when the forger is going to

walk through my door?

- Tommy.

- What?

Right there.


Can't tell from the camera angle of this guy right here.

He's got huge fucking balls.

Dealing product from behind my bar.

I got him.

Got to deal with this.

Fucking chuck town junkie.



You calling me with

ten months to go.

Cos what... ?

You're bored?

I really appreciate what you did for me but,

- I need a little time.

- 50K, Ray.

It's the going rate for judges.

And time?


It's something you don't got.


Don't look like that alright.

Since you went away.

I've been in business with some guys. It's...

These chain saws.


Compared to them,

I am a fucking manitarian

You know this painting?


Do it.

Do it?

What do you mean, do it?

You mean forge it?

It's a Monet.

What the f*ck for?

So you can steal the real one.


What are you talking about?

Steal the real one?

In three weeks...

It's going to be on display right here.

And the guy who wants it.

He's going to be in Boston too.

For one night only.

That's impossible.

Three weeks.

I can't do that.

Look, it's either yes...

Or I make a phone call.

And you go back to prison.

Yes or no.

You have 48 hours to make a decision.

Welcome home, Ray.

- Jesus!

- I'm so sorry.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...

Where are you going?

I have not seen you around here before.

I'm Catherine.

I'm Ray.


Nice to meet you Ray.

Hey, you know Tommy?



Well, I got to...

Want to go somewhere?

Oh, thank you.

Wow, is this your car?

So cool.

Can I drop you off somewhere?

- Drop me?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I got things to do

and you don't want to be in there.

Stay out of there.

And stay away from Tommy Keegan.


There are better people and better places.


Are you serious?


You hungry?

Not for those.


Well, eggs it is.

Where's gramps?

He's out.

But I'm going to take you today.

Because of it's location in the mid section

of the brain stem.
