Zero Tolerance


When my daughter was just a little girl...

I promised to never leave her.

That was one promise I could not keep.

You're late!

- I had some shit I had to take care of.

- She's a ho, Steven.

Sooner you get that through your head,

the better for you.

Just give me the money.

You're angry?

Is it because of me or your ho?

After all this time together,

you're not trusting me?

This is our last transaction.

Got a better source.

Same grade, cheaper.


Oh, Jesus Christ.

JoJo is small time, man.

His sources aren't even stable.

I didn't think you were

this fucking stupid.

He gave me the same exact grade as yours.

Probably because he got it from me.

He's selling it to you

for a low cost for now.

The price is going to come up,

the quality's going to go down.

He's just a fucking small-time

piece of shit.

Got his hands in everything...

girls, money.

Yeah, I know.

That's how I met your girlfriend.

Angel, right?

What a fine piece of ass.

But don't worry, it was like a couple

years ago, before she met you.

When she was still fresh.

JoJo's giving me 10% off your cut.

- Take five, and I'll stick with you.

- You take your 5% and go f*ck yourself.

I don't think you realize

who you're dealing with.

I know exactly who I'm talking to,

motherfucker. Daddy's little boy.

Hey, you're one fast motherfucker,

but I still got a sniper out there.

10% is all it took

for you to f*ck me over.

Come on, man. It's business.

Yeah, it is business.

But what you said about Angel,

that's personal.

Act surprised, okay?

No, stupid.

How do you do this?

Here he comes, here he comes.


Thank you. Thank you.

- Happy Birthday.

- Happy Birthday.

- Thank you.

- I hate being married to a detective.

- Your band sucks.

- That's 'cause our lead singer can't sing.

Then why is he the lead singer?

'Cause it's his studio,

and he owns all the equipment.

Guess it makes sense.

Let's say you skip your band practice

tonight and have dinner with the old man?

- Okay.

- Great.

You go ahead.

I'll take the kids to school.


Happy 50th, old man.

Old woman found her.

Euro-Asian, late teens.

M.E. is working on

time and cause of death.

It's gonna be difficult.

Anything else?

Nothing yet. Divers are searching.

It's going to take another couple hours.

Visibility down there is nil.

Give me a smoke, man.

- It's been, like, four years.

- Just give me a cigarette.

Her name's Angel. No last name.

Everyone has a last name.

Not if your father's a ghost.

I'm gonna need a few personal days.

You have reached

the Balloon Catering Service.

Please leave a message.

I'm in town. Meet me at the usual place.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I can't believe they've turned

this place into this.

Yeah. Well, the war's been...

over for a long time, so...

a playground is better than a cemetery.

So why are you here?

Something to tell me?

Angel's dead.

Her body was discovered early

yesterday morning off the river,

Klong Bangkok Noi.

She was found naked.

Her wrists were bound.

I'm sorry.

I have a plan.

I'll head back and work the case,

and you follow in.

And stay off the radar.

And then?

By the time you land...

I should have some leads

for us to start with.

- Your partner?

- Yeah, he's a good cop.

If there are any leads, he'll have 'em.

And then?

And then you do whatever you want.

But until we find the people

responsible, you play by my rules.

So... how is Ploy?

She's doing well. She's a senior VP now.

You know, you don't have

to do this, Peter.

I can handle this myself, you know that.

- I mean, you got a family. You got a...
