And it's Rockin' With Dewey

in 56 and 3/5 seconds.

And now MF Happenstance

leads the charge around the far turn.

MF Happenstance,

three quarters of a length.

Mystery Woman second on the outside,

Rockin' With Dewey is third

to the inside.

And they're being followed by

Hand Over Bell, Masherhal,

and Perfect Alliance is still at the back.

And they're into the stretch,

three quarters in 1:24.2.

And it is still MF Happenstance,

and here comes Mystery Woman

to the outside.

- And in the center, Hand Over Bell...

- No.

Come on.

It is Mystery Woman,

Hand Over Bell on the far outside.

- Masherhal is closing late...

- Come on, Mashy.

Here at the finish

it's Hand Over Bell!

- Yeah, I got it.

- Masherhal was next,

then came Rockin' With Dewey

and Mystery Woman in 1:51.4.

Seven. Or five for us?

On should tell you.

Okay. Bye.

Matko Boska.


What is it?

Five, for us.


I'm starting.

No, we wait for him.


You have a collect call from

the Atlantic County Correctional Facility

- from...

- Darren.

Press one to accept.

- Darren.

- Hey.

- Where are you?

- Jail.

Jesus. What did you do?

No, it's nothing.

I've been trying to call you.

You didn't pay your fuckin' cell phone?

Yeah, I get paid on Monday.

What happened?

- I'm down in Atlantic City.

- Ma.

Just some asshole, I ended up

having to smash in his window.

Misdemeanor. Point is, I'm stuck here.

I gotta spend the night.

Which is why I need you to help me out.

I got this thing going on here tomorrow...

so you gotta do it and pretend you're me.

You'll get in a guy's car

and deliver a briefcase.

Don't worry about anything.

There's $1,500 in it for me.

You know I need it.

All right? I'll be very proud of you.

- What's in the suitcase?

- It's a briefcase.

What's in the briefcase?

I don't know.

No, I'm not doing...

You don't know?

It's just papers, man.

It's nothing major.

I'm not doing that.

- Put Ma on the phone.

- No.


Put Ma on the phone.

Miss, I already told you,

if you don't have a ticket

you'll have to get off the train.


Your brother needs you.

You're doing it.

Okay, look, just listen, all right?

There'll be a woman on a bench

with a green purse.

And you swap your briefcase for hers.

- Green purse.

- You're not writing this down, are you?


Good. Don't be stupid,

I really need this money.

I owe you one, all right?

I'll pay your cell phone bill.

All right?

She's got a green pocketbook and...

All right, but whose... whose car

am I getting into?

- What?

- Wrap it up.

Just one sec.

You just got to do this for me, okay?

I'm gonna do it.

Who's the guy driving the car?

Promise me you'll do this.

Danny? Promise me you'll do...

I'm doing it, but who's the guy

driving the car?

You got a swipe?

You got a swipe?

There's this one guy, like,

from Philly, I think.

They got like a Philly vibe, and, uh...

Russell and Jimmy know him.

Russell's been a big pain in the ass,

but Jimmy gets it, you know?

Like, he knows I can come through for him.

Shit's been weird since the bust,

but this is a good situation

'cause these guys, they're professional.

Not like Howie, that f*ck.

That guy doesn't know what he's doing.

And the plan is intricate,

you know what I mean?

It's like a clock, you know.

Everything fits together

and everyone gets protected.

I want more money.

- No.

- I'm driving.

I'm keeping the clock running.

What are you talking about?
