The Package

Synopsis: All Tommy Wick has to do is deliver a "Package" to a rival crime lord, nicknamed 'The German'. It seems like a routine job, until another gang tries to hijack the precious cargo and Tommy has to fight every inch of the way to deliver it safely. The problem is, the "Package" isn't what Tommy was led to believe, and now he's in even deeper than he ever thought possible.

Okay, now...

now it's time for some bowling.

All right.

Come on. You know what?

If you're not gonna take this seriously

and hit down the pin, just sit down

and let the real bowlers bowl.

You know what it is?

You're supposed to look at the triangle.

- Let's see, let's see.

- That's where you're supposed to look.

- Let's see what you got.

- Okay, just keep your eye on me.

You're gonna see this.

- You watchin'? All right, here we go.

- I'm watchin'.

- Oh yeah! Nice!


That's how it's done! See that?

Were you watching?

- All right, I saw it.

- It's all about technique.

As a matter of fact, I'm so confident

I can knock that one down,

I got a solid Franklin here

says I clear that frame.

- Copy that.

- Why don't you put your money

- where your mouth is?

- I got that.

- Now it gets interesting.

- Right there.

Yeah! Watch, don't take

your eyes off me.

All I need is my lucky ball here.

I got my lucky ball.

All right, we're gonna

make this happen.

Where you going? Look at this guy

going to the bathroom again.

You incontinent old man.

All right, here we go again, fellas.

You ready?

Okay, you guys tell me

we're gonna make this happen.

It's me and my ball.

It's me and my lucky ball.

In my universe,

it's me and my crystal ball.

Looking in my ball,

you know what I see in my future?

A spare.


I'll teach ya how to do this

a little bit later on, all right?

Pay attention.

Hey, you guys keep it down.

I'm tryin' to bowl over here.

No respect, I tell you.

These guys. Okay.

Oh! All day long!

I'm just gonna...

How you doing, Luis?

You got something for me?

I told Big Doug I'd have it,

I'll have it.

I want you to think very carefully

about your next move, Luis.

I don't think so, buddy.

Walt, you gotta

let me outta here.

Come on, you know me.

I'm a regular here, I'll be back.

But those are my shoes.


Word to the wise, brother.

Stay down.

You'll get your shoes back.

You know me.

You don't know these guys.

- Please, you'll get them back.

- Tommy needs ya,

- Tommy's gonna get ya.

- I'm a regular here...

- Hey, I'll take an 11.

- Tommy, I'm sorry.

I was gonna pay ya, Tommy.

Tommy, I'm gonna pay.

I'm sorry. Ah!

I'm sorry, Tommy.

I was gonna pay!

I swear, I was gonna...

This ain't right!

It ain't fair!

Oh, it ain't right?

It ain't fair?

I gave you a 10-day extension.

That's more than fair.

But me having to track

your little ass down, that ain't right.

Look, you can't

just come in here and...

Yeah, I can, Luis,

because this is what I do.

This is my job.

Let me break it down

for you, dumbass.

If you borrow from Big Doug

and pay him back, I got no play in that.

But when you borrow

from Big Doug...

- Don't! Please!

... and don't pay him back?

He shoots, he loses.

Please, Tommy!

- Big Doug says me and Julio...

- Tommy, Tommy, please.


- I'm sorry!

- I was generous with you, Luis,

seeing we only earn base

plus a cut of the vig.

Meaning the less the vig,

the less money for me and Julio here.

And that ain't right.

I'm sorry, Tommy!

- Be careful, Tommy.

- Ain't fair.

- Okay, I'm sorry, Tommy.

- You got my money?

- Maybe, maybe!

Luis, ain't nothing's ever

been accomplished with a maybe.

Come on, Tommy!

This is crazy!

Okay, I get it!

I get the point, Tommy!

You got two choices.

You either pay Big Doug the money

you owe him in the next 24 hours

or you run and you hide.

Because next time, we ain't

gonna be so easy on your ass.


Last time I had

a blood test was at the VA

when I was shipped home

from Iraq.

Seriously though, who knew a job

like this came with health insurance?

When boss wants us

to get a physical, we get a physical.

Tommy Conolan?

The doctor will see you now.

Okay, you know the drill.

Clothes off, gown on,

and the doctor will be in in a bit.

Still here, old man.

Still here.

What's happening, boss?




- How's the wife?

- She's good.

- Real good.

- That girl deserves some credit

- for putting up with you, Tommy.

- Tell me about it.

Well, here we go.

All right, hit me.

Allan Brady, paid in full.

His eldest still in Afghanistan?

Yeah, sure is.

Army, Fourth Infantry Brigade.

- Good kid.

- Combat team, eh?


That's your old company,

isn't it?

Yeah, a long time ago.

Nick Bradley,

paid in full.

Speaking of the ungrateful.

You hear from Luis?

Funny you should

mention that.

Just had a real nice talk

with that young man.

Hm. That's what I heard.

Think he'll pay?

If he's smart, he will.

If he was smart, he never would have

borrowed from me in the first place.

How's Eddie?

Good as he can be.

They just transferred him

to the state pen.

Tommy, I know you

and the wife will be hurtin',

workin' hard to cover

Eddie's ass like this,

but is he worth it?

Well, no, he's not worth it,

but he's my little brother.

I hear ya.

I got one of those myself.

But Eddie stole from me.

I can't simply erase

debt like that.

I know, Doug, I know.

- I got it covered.

What'll you have?

That you do.

Something's come up this week

to change that.

I need a package delivered

to the German.

I know some decades back,

the two of you

worked in the same crew.

What happened?

Just difference of opinion.

He and Nicky still at war

with Anthony?

Three angry dogs.

One miserable junkyard

to fight over.

And your money's
