"[ Guitar ]"

"[ Singers Vocalizing ]"

"[ Continues ]"

Would you get the f***in' coffee

and let's go.

This ain't exactly Brazil.

I coulda pissed ya

a f***in' cup by now.

Hey! You're out

of chocolate mac.


No chocolate macadamia.

You would please

have something else?


"[ Continues ]"

That will be $ 1 .08.

That sign says

''All Coffee 69 Cents.''

I am very sorry,

but that is a 44-ounce cup,

and the largest

coffee cup is 20 ounces.


I must charge you...

the price of

a large fountain drink.

That's bullshit. That sign says

''Coffee All Sizes,''

not ''All Sizes

Up to 20 Ounces.''

I am humbly sorry,

but you must pay

for that cup.

Just pay

the b*tch the $ 1 .08...

and let's get the

f*** out of here.

All right.

This is bullshit. just give me

my f***in Snackie Cake.

I am sorry.

I cannot do that.

That is only available...

with the 20-ounce coffee.

That is not a 20-ounce coffee.

This b*tch is gettin'

on my nerves, man. Forget it.

-Just give him the f***in' danish.

- That sign says...

''Free Snackie Cake. ''

I paid $ 1.08 for my coffee.

I want my free Snackie Cake.

I cannot do that.

Here. take it.

That's apple cinnamon.

I wanted cream cheese.

F***'s sake. Pay her

the money and let's go.

Either of you got

something smaller than a Ben?

I'm sorry.

I cannot accept

any monies over a $20 bill.

- That's it.

- "I should not sell it"

As that cup is very hot

and might burn you.

You are very strange.

I'm going

to call the police.

F*** this.

[ "Gunshot" ]

F*** me.

Give me a smock.

[ "Spraying" ]

How you doin' tonight?


How about yourself?

I'm doin'okay.

Need a cup of coffee, though.

Hmm... raspberry blend.

[ "Weapon Cocking" ]

It's on the house.

You sure?

Hey, man, here you are...

out chasing bad guys

at 4:
00 in the morning...

while I'm sitting here

like a duck--

It's the least I can do.

I appreciate it.

[ Sniffing ]

Smell something funny?

[ Sniffing ]


one of our coolers went down.

Spoiled a lot of sh*t.

[ Chuckling ]


Hey, man, if you can stand it...

it don't bother me none.

You got to work in it.

Mind if I, uh...

ask you a question?

Go ahead, officer.

"Tell me. who do you like better",

Picard or Kirk?

Oh, there's no question about it.


[ Laughing ]

You bet.

You got to respect a man

who can f*** a green b*tch...

and destroy a whole civilization

all in 60 minutes.

[ Laughing ]

Good night.

[ "Bell Dings" ]

[ "Door Closes" ]

- "Thought we had a problem."

- "[ Door Chime Chiming ]"

I almost forgot--

my free Snackie Cake.

[ Squeaking ]

[ "Gunshot" ]

[ Ringing ]

- Hello?

- This is the operator.

I have a collect call from Nick.

- Who?

- From a ''Nick.''

Yeah, I'll take it.

Go ahead, sir.



[ Sighing ]

Look, uh, I'm coming through

Houston tomorrow morning.

I was wondering

if I might come see you.

Oh, I don't know, bro. Why?

Things have changed.

I'm getting married.

I was hoping I could stay

a couple days, you know?

Catch up?

[ "Birds Chirping ]"



What do you want me to say?

''Sorry, bro, my wife's...

''going to be a little tired

when she gets home tonight.

''Here's 20 bucks.

There's a La Quinta

up the highway.''

I thought maybe you'd

want him to meet me.

If he's such a good friend,

why haven't I heard

about him before, hmm?

I told you.

[ Clears Throat ]

I was kind of in the wrong path

I chose to get

my sh*t together. He didn't.

What time is it?

Oh, sh*t!

I'm going to miss my plane.

I got to go. Bye.

- "What about breakfast?"
