Good morning, bay area!

It's a beautiful Monday.

Hope you'll get out there

and try to forget

about this past weekend,

especially you sports fans.

I've never seen so much bad luck

in three days of my life.

If anybody put money down

on our bay-area favorites,

you might want to think

about robbing a bank

and getting out of the country.

Or maybe you should just

go back to Vegas and stay there.

I don't what to stay

besides "music cures all."

Here's hoping this new track

from "the illness" will do

just that.

- Yeah?

- Thomas!

Hey, it's Sam calling

for my dad, Carl.

You have had

some of the worst luck anyone

has ever had.

I can have your money

for you in a week.

A week? The last time

my dad waited a week,

I had to find the guy.

Had to track him down

and cut off his finger.

Had to bring it back to my dad.

Ended up being the wrong finger.

The point is I got trouble.

See, it's about image.

I can't go around cutting off

everybody's fingers.

There's only digits

on a guy's hands,

then I got to move to toes...

I'll get it, all right?


I'm on a new film right now.

I could just ask...

a new blockbuster

like your last couple?

What was that last one

you did with, uh...

With a plot?

Just give me some time.

I'll have it.

Well, I'm sure.

I'll see you soon.

Hey, pop?

This guy's not gonna

come up with 15 grand,

even if he had a week.

You wanna make a bet this

becomes an amazing action movie?

Tomas will be

out any second now.

Don't start the car

until we see him.

Hi, you've reached Sara.

I'm not available.

Give me a call,

but leave me a message.

Don't worry about the sign.

It's a low-budget gig.

I'm sure you're gonna get

some great action for your reel.


Hey, guys. Sorry for the wait.

There was a huge order

put in before yours...

A little bit confusion.

Are you gonna put it down

or are you gonna

keep babbling like an idiot?

You mean to tell me

whose is which?

That's mine.

So put his there and give

me my plate!

Oh, here.

- What are you doing?

- You're fired!

I didn't...

hey, Sara.

- Hey, baby.

- I need to crash with you

for a couple of nights.

Is that all right?

Yeah, sure. Is everything okay?

It's too hard

to explain right now.

All right. I'll see you soon.

All right, thanks, bye.

So, you've known Nick

longer than I have?

Uh, yeah.

I've known Nick

since we were kids.

But you been working with him

for two years now, right?

Uh-huh. So, um,

Nick probably gave you

a good idea of what we do here.

Yeah, he said you guys

get paid pretty well

for just taking a few pictures

and, uh...

Every now and then, things get

a little physical, but...

It's not like you guys

are running around in the middle

of a gun fight or something,



Is that what he said?

W-well, yeah.

Is that...

don't worry about that.

Listen, sometimes things

get a little physical,

but I'm assuming

since Nick sent you here

today to fill in for him

that you understand that.

Well... yeah.


- Yo.

- Hey, is punk ass there?

Yeah, your guy's here.

You wanna stop by?

Listen, I just got a ticket

for parking...

yeah, okay.

Who was that?

You blind?

- This the guy?

- Yep.

That's him.

Was that... did you just call?

Don't matter. Stand up.

- Wait, is this... is this...

- Don't worry about it.

Get up.

What are you, like, 20?

- No...

- Doesn't matter.

Wait, wait!

How far is this supposed to go?



- What, are you guys nuts?

- Hey, hey.

I didn't know he was gonna

do all of that.

And who is he?

That's Stan.

He's an old buddy of Nick and I.
