Turn it off.

Give me the keys.

How bad is it?

I can make it.

I only got one more day.

I can make it.


Let me see it.

I went straight through,

thank God.

-You got lucky.

-This is lucky?

Yep, darling,

this is lucky.

It's okay, baby.

You may want to

bite something.

Do you know what you're doing?

Spent three years

in the desert, darling.

I need you to hold still.

All right?

Your plates are swapped.

You're good until Alabama.

If you get woozy,

you take a bump.

Not a line,

a bump.

Go straight down this road

and keep your lights off.

You keep 'em f***ing off

until you hit the pavement.

-You understand me?

-Thank you so much.


What's he doing?

He's shooting rabbits.

What's he doing that for?

'Cause they're like squirrels,

chewing and digging everything up.

Or maybe this is

what people do around here.

What, is he like a tweaker

or something?

No, he's not a tweaker.

How do you know?

His aim's too good.


You're such a jerk.

I'm late, babe.

Johnny, when are you

coming back?

I don't know. It...

it shouldn't take too long.

A few hours. I can stop

and get lunch if you want.


What is it, then?


This is temporary.

How temporary?

A few more deliveries

and we're cool.

I get straight

with my uncle,

and then we can get

oceanside, you know?

Someplace nobody

can find us.

We're close, babe.

We're really,

really close.

You come in late,

you come in short,

and you've brought me

a side of attitude.

I've been sticking

my f***ing neck out for you.

I get it.

You know, I read that,

the number one reason

people give for office theft...

is "the company

owes me something."

You see that employee

right there?

My nephew.

He knows

how to do his job.

He keeps it clean.

And he knows that

I don't owe nobody jack sh*t.

That's why he's gonna

grow old and fat.

And you,

I don't know about you.

Guille, get this jackass outta

here before I lose my temper.

Sorry to keep ya.

Training day.

-Big delivery today, John.


What should I expect?

100. Not a penny less.

-Light me a goddamn cigarette.

Go on, Guille.

How's things

out at the ranch?

Rosie's complaining

about the bugs a little bit,

but other than that,

everything's good.

You're doing pretty good

for yourself?

No problems, right?

So if, anything

was bothering you,

you'd tell me, right?

I mean, yeah,

of course.

Of course I would.

Everything's good.


your daddy

was like you.

The devil

keep his soul.

He didn't say much,

but when he did,

He-he saved my neck

more times than I can

even think about.

I owed him, you see?

And that's why

I took you in,

taught you how to be

a man, you know?

I mean, you said you wanted

to go in the Service.

I allowed it.


But that's over now,

John, you know?

You've done your time.

You at home now

with family, right?

Where you belong, no?

I know, Neil.

-Uncle Neil.

-Uncle Neil.



Is there a problem, Officer?

Step out of

the vehicle.

Have an appointment

today, Johnny?

Make a little pickup

from your uncle?

-I'm clean.


You was born dirty.

You know better than to

leave it out in the open.

Maybe you're hiding it

someplace else.

Someplace I gotta look
