It isn't lucrative.

Yeah, you got to always consider

the cost preparation. Ask Uri.

Hold on a second.

Hello? What's up?

I'm good. I had a great meeting today.

Damon Dash. Great meeting.

Yeah. Hold on a second.

Let me take this, man.

Yes, Damon is definitely... Hello?

Damon is definitely building the studio.

I'm definitely producing,

and you are in.

Listen to me very carefully.

This is my year.

I have two guaranteed shots

at blowing up. Number one:

Damon Dash is buying a movie studio

and making me his top producer.

And number two:
if by some freak

accident his deal falls through...

then Count Tommaso Lupo,

this billionaire Italian media mogul...

is desperate to hire me

as his right-hand guy.

Yeah. Check out Belize.

It's off the coast of Mexico.

It seems to me

they've got very bribable cops.

- Ford!

- I'll call you back.

- Where have you been?

- Hey, sweetie!

- It's been two years!

- How are you?

No! Where have you been?

It's been two years.

You remember $9,300, what I gave

you when you were a bum?

Are you still a bum?

I want my money, $9,300.

- You seriously hitting me for $9,300?

- I called. I sent e-mails.

You haven't returned

any of my messages. Are you crazy?

- This is incredible.

- Where is my money?

- I was talking about you...

- No! $9,300! Let's talk about that!

...with Damon Dash. Are you finished?

I don't care about Damon Dash.

No, I'm not finished.

- Go ahead, finish.

- I want $9,300. Remember that?

- I gave it to you when I didn't have it.

- You should finish.

- And I felt sorry for you!

- I'm producing two films with Damon.

- I want $9,300. I don't care about him!

- He's building a film studio.

- I don't care!

- Showed him pictures, you'll be a star.

- I don't care about being a star!

- I was just talking about you.

- I want $9,300.

- And he loves the idea. This is classic.

- I don't care. I want my money.

- You want $9,300?

- Get away from me. I want my money.

- I'm offering you $93 million.

- I don't want it.

- And you go for chump change.

- We'll talk, after you show up with it.

- I used to think you're a moron.

- I'm wrong! You've got a psychosis!

- You are wrong. I want my money!

It's like a self-destructive disease!

- You're crazy!

- I wish you were a moron.

- I want my money. $9,300.

- Look around.

- I am not looking around.

- You will always remember you blew it.

- I want my money now!

- A chance at fame for cigarette money.

You want it? I'm going to a meeting.

I've got $10,000 in my jacket.

- Hand it over! I want it right now!

- Are you sure?

- Give it! Don't look at me like that!

- Are you positive?

- I want my money! Now!

- This is the moment.

- The ship is sailing away.

- Give me my money!

- You're killing the golden goose. Fine!

- Right now! That's all I want.

You're pissing me off so much,

I'm going to give it to you.

You don't have it. Liar!

- I'm not gonna 'cause you're a moron!

- You're such a liar, you make me sick!

- You're sick, destructive. Won't give it.

- I want my money!

Goodbye, moron!

Remember this moment.

Oh, my God!

Ford, don't walk away from me, Ford!

Excuse me,

are you Prof. Ben Rabinowitz?

Yes. You must be Vera. Great to meet

you. I had no idea you were this lovely.

Thank you.

- What's up?

- You're late. That's what's up.

I had a meeting in the park.

- This is not a meeting?

- What you got?

Listen. 1-900 phone calls.

Are you familiar with that kind of stuff?

- I'm sure you made a couple.

- A few.

We could set up an account,

outside of the country.

Let me ask, as I'm interested
