In New York City is a

fine line between law and chaos.

On that line live Danson

and Highsmith.

Why I decided on this

roof to crawl?

That can be linked to poor

choices in life.

Shake the bastard off.

-- The 'Oo' I heard.

Guest, a dent in my hood.

Come on.


Can someone call 1--1--hell?

S me tired.

The pot.

-- Hold.

You have the right to be silent ...

but I want to hear you scream.

On the ground.


One by one.

Rick Rayston, New York Observer ...

on the Internet.

These suspects were arrested

with 113 grams of marijuana.

A crime in some States.

Is this case worth so much damage?

Why let New York City

to answer that question?

The largest city in the world.

Sarah Campon, TMC edition.

Danson, the rumors

Kim Kardasian you and where?

No comment.

But, yes.

Danson and Highsmith,

three hotdoggen forever!

No drinks.

I can not do.

Danson and Highsmith

shooting and driving style.

They are rock stars.

Then you have the jokers ...

the nutcrackers,

and then the other guys.

We know it.

Okay, listen ...

Tonight we celebrate something

in Butter.

Brody Jenner is there. Bai Ling

Jenni Farley Short Dallas Bitch of Jersey Shore.

And most of you are on that list.

-- You're the best.

I can also speak,

about a guy from Australia ...

with a dream.

-- Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Let me finish.

He was a champion

and then a movie star.

Damn, let me finish.

They have ruined the story.

What it comes down to is

that we could not do our work ...

if you do not have the paperwork

did not like what we do.

All the shooting, chase

and the sex that we do not want to but ...

I can do through you.


And do we all the time.

-- Shut up, you!

If we want to hear you, I put my hand

in your ass and move your mouth so.

Can you hear me?


Peace and out, sluts.

Boys. Say it.

Come on. Close enough.

Something back.

One more thing ... Yes, perfect.

This is their paperwork and you

they do not know yourself.

This work is just like Bob 's wife.

Fat, ugly ...

Danson and his fingerprints on it.

Not bad meaning.

Who wants it?

-- I.

Paper and Yankee Club Slut doing.

-- Thanks, Allen.

Thank you, Captain.

-- I do it.

Humming that song is not.

-- I can if I want.

I know, but I ask to stop.

Then I stop it.

-- Thanks.

So stop grinning.

Now you my emotions cover

by how you feel so ...

that does not work.

Seriously, stop humming.

This is not accounting or where

you and your calculator does.

Forensic accounting.

An important part.

Yes, do not be so happy about kutwerk, idiot.

Guys, a reminder:

Police picnic this weekend.

My wife makes her famous

eggs again.

My waist is furious.

-- A bad time, Bob!

I'm going to show a slice of food.

You know what I did?

I went out that door ...

saw a pair of detectives, and was

just talk behind your back ...

but I stopped myself because my

Dad said that such a man a coward.

I really appreciate that.

-- Well, because I say it directly.

That should not.

-- I should not.

I found a fake cop.

The sound of your piss in the urinal ...

sounds feminine.

If we were in the wilderness ...

I would attack you, even if

You do not belong to my food.

If I show a lion, and you tuna,

I should swim to get you to eat.

And I f*ck your girl tuna.

A lion in the ocean?

They are afraid of water.

If you do besides' s River

water or a place ...

true that. But in the ocean?

Very deep, because I suppose in South Africa.

Against a mature tuna,

with his 20 friends?

That you lose.

Nine chances out of ten.

And you came to our school tuna,
