Police! Help me!

Help me.

They're going to kill me.

Help me.

What're you doing?

They're after me!

Help me.

I got it.

You're 20 minutes late.

Well, you've seen the traffic

around here? It's worse then Bagdad.

Take a seat.


you said you've come up a few

pay grades, Billy, last time...

I saw you, you sat in front of your

desk at Langley trying to nail that...

dirty blonde secretary

with the nice ass.

What was her name?

Last time I saw you, you and your

boys were getting your asses kicked...

all over downtown Medellin

by Escobar.

Yeah... I remember.


These two men, we're not even

sure of their real names.

They're poppy farmers, from about

And they'll be

very willing to produce...

about a billion dollars a year

high grade black tar Heroin.

The deal is, that they'll supply

the Salazar kartel with Heroin...

well under market price, in

exchange for access to the line.

The line?

The drugs routes from this side

of the border to the U.S.

They're bringing a suitcase,

probably smuggled from Pakistan.

- So, what's in it?

- We don't know.

What we do know

that it's hermetically sealed,

and we can't x-ray it.

This suitcase is a test.

If they can get through

with that thing,

we've got a...

a big problemen.

The bottom line we can't guarantee

that something won't make it through.

By the end of day what we're

talking about is the Taliban...

with a pipe line

for whatever they want...

to the U.S, nukes, drugs,

bio-weapons, people...

That will be all for now,

Randall. Thanks.


who would be stupid enough

to let this happen?

I thought you people had this

whole area under control.

And Salazar... he's dying.

Numero two is taking over.

Pelon, that piece of work.

If this deal goes through,

that makes him the biggest

drug trafficker in the west,

even bigger

than our buddy, Escobar.

So... huh, now what? This all

sounds like a local problem to me.

No, until 6 hours ago,

it was mine... officially.

Now it's yours.

No, no, I retired in 96.

Whatever, why don't you start

by giving us some idea...

what your units

operations are in this area.

- My unit?

- Hm.

How close are you?

Pelon is a paranoid psycho.

He keeps moving from one

safe house to the other.

He won't be easy to track, but we'll

give you all the intel we have.

So, you have some one inside?

Yes, one, but I'm not

gonna give you that.

Why not?

Too deep, and... besides,

I don't trust you.

So, what's the verdict?

Did you ever nail...

that dirty blonde

with the nice ass?

Just get the job done,

clean, if possible.


- Yeah.

- Mark Shields? Crossover.

This bread, is the body of Christ,

and this wine, is the blood Christ.

This bread, is the body of Christ,

and this wine, is the blood Christ.

This bread, is the body of Christ,

and this wine, is the blood Christ.

This bread...

is the body of Christ,

and this wine,

o sangue de Cristo.

This bread, is the body of Christ,

and this wine, is the blood Christ.

This bread, is the body of Christ...

You take of that thing

we've discussed?

It's done.

Do you know... the new guy?

What's his name?


There's always some new guy, huh?

I took care of him.

That's good.

It's good to get your hands

dirty some times, huh?

Let's go.

...and this wine,

is the blood Christ.

The Arabs?

- On their way to his house.

- What?

Go back to your house.

I'm gonna be a minute.

- Entertain 'em.

- Hey, Pelon...


- Can I help you, sir?

- Ola, Marin, Tim Marin.

Yes sir, your room is ready.

Have you, uh... seen this guy?

I don't know this guy.
