Oh, man!
Jesus fucking Christ, Michael!
- [chuckles] Did I scare you?
- What the fuck you doing here?
- My bad. I didn't mean to scare you.
- What are you doing in my house?
I stopped by to say hi.
You weren't home, so I let myself in.
Hey, I don't owe you anything, man.
- I don't owe you a cent.
- Who said you did?
You don't owe me shit.
Come in, man. Walk in the room.
Be in the room with me.
- How you been, man?
- I mean, a little scared right now,
- but good.
- [laughs]
What's up, man?
I got a business proposition for you.
- All right, I'm listening.
- Listen.
I'm going away for a little bit.
I gotta do some time.
While I'm gone... [sighs]
I got a little something here...
I need stored.
I don't want the cops getting their hands
on this.
I don't want my friends, nobody...
You understand?
- I understand.
- All right?
I go away...
six to nine months, give or take.
[chuckles] We don't know yet.
I get out, I get my bag...
ten grand, cash.
- $10,000?
- Mm-hmm.
What's in the bag?
Don't worry about what's in this bag.
Don't open it. Don't look at it.
Don't touch it. Don't even think about it.
All right? Just put it away
and forget about it. That's it.
[whispers] Fuck, Michael.
This is an interesting opportunity.
[both laughing]
You could call it that.
- You got a deal.
- My man. All right.
- Done.
- Done.
- All right. Shit!
- I'm your man.
[cell phone ringing]
[over phone] Eddie, it's Ron.
I don't know if you remember me.
I came out of your mother's vagina
a few years before you,
we grew up together. I'm your brother.
Uh, hey, man. Uh... where are you?
We haven't seen you in a few weeks
and would love to see you.
We miss you. Your nephew misses you.
Please call us. Let's have dinner. Bye.
[Eddie] Hello?
Whatever you think is right,
go with your gut.
Feel it, go with your gut.
- Trust your gut.
- This is a big decision.
- [device chimes]
- Okay, I'll just do it.
[both] Yeah!
- Special candy!
- Nice.
[both] Oh!
- So, Uncle Eddie...
- [Ron] Good to see you, man.
How's it been going?
[Eddie] Uh, really great, actually.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
What you been doing?
Working, having fun, saving money,
- doing the...
- You're not parking cars, are you?
- Are you parking cars?
- Uh, yeah, I am parking cars, actually.
- Not every day.
- Look!
[Kris] I just remember, uh,
last season, you said it was going to be
your last season.
Yeah, and then this season came up,
and the Cubs are doing really good,
and people wanna be there,
and there's more opportunity.
And I don't say no to money,
so I took the job.
- I'm actually...
- [Kris] What about...
Have you been working on...
Weren't you gonna open
a restaurant or a bar?
Arthur and I were gonna open a bar,
but it was gonna be a speakeasy thing.
And then as we got into it,
which we are still currently discussing...
- Keep going.
- We just worry about your career.
I just want you
to be able to support yourself.
[Eddie] I know... Yeah, I, actually, I...
I started a business, actually.
Thanks for asking.
- You started a business?
- It's a storage business.
[Kris] A storage business?
Yeah, I started... I already have a...
It's not an idea, it's a business.
I have a customer.
- Look!
- What?
- [Eddie] So I've been doing that.
- What's that?
This client is a six-month job,
and I'm paid for the entire six months.
So what I'm doing now is looking
for more customers.
What are you talking about?
- That sounds weird.
- What's weird about it?
- Help me with the trash.
- It's none of your business.
Help me with the trash. Please?
I didn't come here to talk about it.
- I came here to just hang out.
- [Kris] All right.
[Ron] Don't sweat it.
- I'm not, but I...
- Look...
Don't let it get to you.
She loves you, man.
I love her. She knows that.
I know she does.
I mean...
Yeah, but she almost... You know?
I know. Well, you know,
we worry about you, man.
A lot.
And at a certain point,
you're gonna have to grow up, man,
and join the big boys' club, okay?
I'm serious.
Because this pace is not gonna sustain.
Listen to me.
I know this is a broken record.
Come work for me.
Please. Chips would have loved that.
His boys working in his company
that he built.
Give me a break. He would have loved that.
- I don't wanna... Okay, I don't want to...
- Security, stability, okay?
You get a paycheck, okay?
You get money, how you wanna spend it.
- You have an anchor.
- Ron, stop!
I don't wanna work for you.
I don't wanna work at Chips' company.
- It's time you start to build a life.
- I don't want... Shut up.
- It's great!
- I don't wanna be a landscaper.
I don't wanna work my way up.
What? What's wrong with that company?
They built it up!
- I know. I love what dad did.
- Something wrong with working there?
I don't want it, man.
That's it. That's it!
You can't give me a joint and then give me
the lecture. [laughs]
- This is you.
- I don't smoke enough to...
- [imitates Eddie] "That's it! That's it!"
- That's it.
- "You can't give... I can't be stoned..."
- You get me fucking high...
- "and think about my life."
- and then you lecture me.
She makes good cookies.
[grunts softly]
Don't do it, you goober.
[claps hands]
Don't do it.
Don't you bet on this.
Don't do it.
- [laughing]
- Did Jake hear anything?
No, I'm looking through the screen.
Fuckin' body building, everything.
- Oh, my God.
- Man...
- I'm sorry.
- It would have been bye-bye, Arthur.
- That's a great story, though.
- [laughs]
No, that wasn't no story.
That shit's for real.
Yo, what we got on this? Italian beef?
[Berg] Twenty.
And... Plus an Italian beef.
Good. I need it
for some gas money, anyway.
All right, good shot, good shot.
Oh, no.
Oh, no.
Ew. Gross.
What the fuck?
Oh, fuck me, man.
Oh, no.
Oh, no.
Oh, no.
Oh, no.
Holy shit.
Oh, no.
Well, that's not great. [sighs]
That's not...
[sighs] Fuck me.
The fact that you're even thinking
about this plan...
means that that bag is gonna be devoid
of money in less than three weeks.
- Not true.
- Absolutely true.
There is a happy ending on this one.
- There can't be a happy ending.
- There can.
There's never been a happy ending
for you.
That's a loser's attitude.
Every story you ever told me,
from the day I've met you,
has been about how you were here
and then you ended up here.
Because you're my sponsor.
Am I gonna just tell you
my glory stories?
Most of 'em are winning stories.
- Who's your... Who's your sponsor?
- You.
No, I'm not. No.
- Yeah, you are.
- I'm not your sponsor,
because you haven't been
to a meeting in six months.
There's a system in place,
and that program's supposed to work
a particular way.
Let me tell you who I am.
I'm gonna tell you.
I'm a guy who you invite to diners.
And then you spout your bullshit
about what you're gonna do.
You hope I accept it, so you don't
feel guilty about your behavior.
My sponsor.
Is that what you got from the program?
You got that that's...
What I just said...
You characterize that as a sponsor?
I just wanna take $500 out of the bag,
and I wanna gamble with it.
And then as soon as I win anything,
I put the original $500 back in the bag,
and I put the bag away.
You're a loser. You've never won.
You lose, lose, lose.
- USDA prime-rib fucking loser!
- No, I'm not.
That's the cut of you. It's cut...
It's a six-ounce filet of loser.
- You're not gonna win money!
- I might.
- There's no...
- If I pay it back,
which is $500, which is doable,
what's the problem?
If you take $500,
you're gonna take $500 more.
- No, I'm not. My line is...
- You absolutely are.
No, my line is $500.
I don't touch it after that.
Ninety percent of what you've said
since we've sat down is asinine!
Gene, it's an opportunity.
It's an opportunity that I've never had.
I've never had this kind of financial nut.
The opportunity that you have now is
to leave the bag in the closet,
do fucking nothing,
and then get paid money,
no risk, at the end.
Do you see that?
- Do you see that?
- Yeah, I'm really glad I called.
- I'm not gonna touch the money.
- You're not gonna touch the money?
Thank you.
I'm not gonna touch the money.
- Awesome.
- I'm done. Thank you. I needed this.
Thank you.
[indistinct chatter]
All right. I see. I see.
[all laughing]
Twenty-one! Good boy, man!
[all] Oh!
- Whoo!
- [all laughing]
- I'll take a beer. I don't care which one.
- [bartender] You got it.
[indistinct chatter]
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I told you! I fuck...
[Eddie] Keep all that for you.
Keep it close.
I'm coming right back for more, okay?
- You got it.
- Thank you, Paul.
Oh! Oh! Oh!
[overlapping chatter]
[all chanting] Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Yes, sir!
[Eddie] Drink up! We're drinking all night.
- Everything's on me.
- [Arthur] Yes!
Yes, I was scared.
Yes, I was fucking scared.
But now, that's even.
Everything's back, and I'm up two.
So now that I'm up fucking two, man,
it's like...
- Now I can jump.
- [Berg] That's easy money.
You can jump.
[Eddie] 'Cause if I lose this,
I'm where I started.
All right, we're gonna celebrate.
Thank you for coming.
I'm glad you are out.
This is... Man, I needed this, man.
I needed... This feels like...
- [Berg] You deserve this, Eddie.
- [Arthur] Deserve it.
Thank you, guys.
Hey, grab another one. All night.
- All night?
- Tell 'em I got you.
[Eddie] Paul, I got you all night.
- Yes!
- [Eddie] Paul!
- Give me a beer.
- Need another?
- I'll take one.
- Big bag of pretzels.
[laughter and indistinct chatter]
- Oh!
- Sorry.
- Sorry.
- Um...
[both chuckle]
Oh, no, no, no. I'm so sorry.
- Um...
- Okay. Sorry about that.
After you.
[scattered laughter]
Hey, man. You know, location is key.
My uncle got the spot, so...
Arthur, go ahead. Call your uncle.
Tell him this is real.
We're on at this point, though.
[indistinct chatter]
- Hey.
- What's up?
Whatever those ladies over there
are drinking, give 'em another round.
On me.
- On you? Nice.
- Yeah. Okay?
I need you to go over there
and bring it to them.
- I don't do table service here.
- I know, just do it for me.
Just go over and do it.
When they ask, "Who's it from..."
- I got a full bar.
- I know.
It's gonna take you one minute.
What, they're gonna freak out
and demand a drink?
Just do me a favor.
How many times have you been here?
Have you ever seen me go out
behind the bar
- and deliver drinks?
- No, but just...
I'm asking you to do...
I'm gonna pay you. I'll give you $20.
I'll give you $20 just for that.
Plus, I'm paying for the drinks.
[all laughing]
Oh, no, no, no.
We... we didn't ask for those.
Yeah, I know. They're on him.
- [Eva] Oh, do you know him?
- [woman] No.
Oh, I'll come by.
I'll come by. I'll come by.
- Okay.
- This is because I almost killed you here.
Oh, no, don't worry.
How are you guys?
I've never seen you in this place.
Those are my friends.
- Gentlemen!
- [Eva] Oh...
- [Eva] Hi.
- Introduce yourselves.
Maybe we'll be one big group.
Drinks on me tonight.
- Oh. Okay.
- [Eddie] Absolutely.
Why not? If you're saying it.
- Eddie.
- Hi. Eva.
- Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you, too.
- Sorry about that.
- No, don't worry.
- Okay.
- [both laughing]
[rock music playing]
All the time! All the time!
[all laughing]
You're talking, it all sounds fair
You promise your love
How much you care
I'm still listening and still unsure
Your actions are lacking
Nothing is clear
No more words
- Okay, so just touch here.
- Okay. Okay.
- It's normal.
- Okay.
- Just touch it.
- Okay.
And then...
- Boom. [laughs]
- Oh, my God!
- What is that?
- No, seriously.
- It's so big, right?
- [both laughing]
You have a sweet spirit. I can tell that.
- And it comes through the music.
- [Berg] Really?
The dance moves that you do
in the musical breaks.
That's what changes things.
I appreciate you saying that,
- 'cause no one tells me that.
- You know...
Oh. Push it. Come on.
- Take the black girl. Duh.
- [Nicky] Who do you like?
- Who do you like?
- [chuckles]
[softly] Black girl.
Tell me more about your friend Eddie.
[Arthur] Mary...
- Eddie? What's to tell? Look at him.
- I don't know.
- He's talking to my friend.
- [Arthur] Yeah.
- He is, isn't he?
- [both chuckle]
So you guys are all, uh...
You are all nurses? You work together?
- Yeah, we are.
- That's cool. That's...
- [Eddie] That's interesting.
- [Eva] I know.
- [both] Through the pyramids of light
- How'd you get into...
wanting to take care of people?
[sighs] I've always wanted
to take care of people.
- You have?
- Yeah. [chuckles]
'Cause you have this great big muscle.
- [laughing]
- You can do anything with it.
I really like, uh... I don't know.
I just like taking care of people.
And I just like...
- The best part...
- Yes?
Like, what I really enjoy about my work
is just, like, um... like, telling people
how to take care of themselves.
- That's interesting.
- That is an attractive quality.
It was nothing at all
Like anything I had felt before
[both speaking Spanish]
Okay, you guys.
- [both continue speaking Spanish]
- Mi amigos. Mi Amiga.
- Wow.
- Yes. Wow.
[Eddie] Yes?
- You gotta go home. I'm so sorry.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Yeah, it's late.
- Okay, adis.
- Adis.
- Hasta luego. Hasta luego.
- Hasta luego.
- Amigo mo.
- [chuckles]
But this is... I've been coming here
since I was... early high school.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- Could we get these to go?
- [woman] Sure.
- Thank you very much.
- No problem.
[Eva] I am a nerd.
- [Eddie chuckles]
- A very disciplined nerd.
- So you've always just been disciplined?
- Yeah. Always.
That's great.
- Yeah? Do you think so?
- Yeah.
So what made you go out tonight?
Well, my friends
were giving me a lot of shit.
- They were just calling me boring and...
- Yeah, but why tonight?
- 'Cause tonight...
- [chuckles] I don't know.
You went out,
and you decided to go to that bar.
- So why tonight?
- [chuckles]
It's just a nice coincidence.
See, I don't believe in coincidences.
- I really don't! I really don't.
- [chuckles]
I believe that, like,
things happen for a reason, you know?
- Yeah. I do, too.
- And...
Today was a very lucky day for me.
And then you happen to...
decide to go out, and you never go out!
- And you went to that shit bar?
- [chuckles] Yeah.
Are you kiddin' me?
I mean, what are the chances?
I don't know, but it was great.
In a million years,
that wouldn't happen twice!
I don't know. It's really cool.
It's exciting for me.
It feels like...
sometimes the world is just perfect.
- I know.
- Sometimes it's not.
Mostly it's not.
But when it is, it's just...
- You sound kind of crazy, but...
- I do?
- I like it.
- Okay. Good.
[both laughing]
Hey, look, this was really fun.
I know.
- I had a great time hanging out with you.
- Me, too.
- Maybe we could do it again.
- Of course.
- Do you wanna?
- I can give you...
I can give you my phone number.
- Okay. Yeah.
- Yeah?
Let me give you my phone, and then, uh...
You wanna just punch it in,
- and I'll reach out and...
- Yeah.
Um... Maybe we can have breakfast
one of these days.
Okay, I'm not really a morning person.
So do you ever do, like, lunches? Or...
- Uh...
- Or maybe do a drink? Or...
My schedule's pretty bad.
- It is, yeah?
- So, yeah...
- I only have mornings. I'm sorry.
- [chuckles]
- Really? Like, that's it? Just mornings.
- And pretty early.
- Like, what's early?
- Like, around 7:00, 7:30.
- Wow. Okay.
- Yeah?
- Is that okay?
- Yeah, it's great. Yes.
- Okay?
- Yeah, then I will... Yeah.
I'm excited to, uh... Gotcha.
- So I'll see you in the morning.
- [both chuckle]
Okay. We'll reach out.
We'll find each other. We'll pick a day.

They are? Fuck. Are you kidding me?
All right. Thanks. Fuck.

[man 3] Too rich for me.
[dealer] $1,500 is the call.
[Eddie] Hold on, man.
I haven't made my call yet.
[dealer] Do you want to call or fold?
We call the hand and he shows first.
He shows first.
[man 2] Yep. You're the big high roller.

- [man 2] Are you kidding?
[man 2] He's got a full boat over there,
This is you, my friend. This is all you.
Never seen nothin' like it in my life.
You look rested.
Did you have a... a good night last night?
What'd you do?
Yeah. I, um...
I put my daughter to bed
and then watched some TV with my mom.
So, yeah.
- A daughter.
- Yep. Yeah.
[both chuckling]
What, uh... what, um... How old is she?
Uh, she's seven years old.
- Seven?
- Mmm-hmm.
That's a full kid.
Is her father in the...
Are you married to him, or with him, or...
No, no, no.
She... I mean he... he's...
lost in Mexico forever.
- Is that a normal thing in Mexico?
- [laughing]
To get lost forever?
It's terrifying.
- But he's not in the picture.
- He's not...
I mean he's just there,
and he's never coming here, and... Yeah.
And there is no contact at all.
- Well, that's a relief for, you know...
- For what?
- Somebody. I guess me.
- Oh!
But not for you maybe, which I'm sorry.
Really? I mean, because three women...
It's, like, a huge thing...
- It's a big thing. Yeah.
- To deal with. You know?
Are you prepared for that?
- I don't think so.
- [chuckles]
Well, how about we have breakfast first,
and then we'll see if we like the food.
We'll figure all that next.
- Like...
- You're right.
- [waitress] Sorry about the wait.
- [Eva] Thanks.
[waitress] Care for a cup of coffee?
Yeah. Sure. Yes, please.
- Black.
- [waitress] Okay. Ma'am?
- Uh, orange juice. Thanks.
- [waitress] Okay. Thank you.
I think it's really cool
that you started the breakfast this way.
Yeah, I wasn't totally honest
during the night.
I... I don't own my own business.
I'm not a big spender the way I was.
I mostly don't have that much money.
- And if...
- So...
if that's not what you expected,
I apologize 'cause I misled you.
What do you do for a living?
- What do I do for a living?
- Yeah.
It's hard to say these days.
[both chuckle]
But once you get past...
'Cause you don't...
You don't seem shy to me at all.
- [Eva chuckles]
- You don't.
'Cause you are different.
I don't know why.
So once you know somebody,
then you're very outgoing.
Yeah, exactly.
If I don't know them, it's just...
I'm really shy.
- [Gene chuckles] I'm sorry.
- [Eddie] Gene, don't do that.
- [laughing]
- Please.
That was, like, a week ago.
- Gene...
- It was, like, a week ago that we talked.
I'm sorry. I should not be laughing.
I'm sorry.
I should not be laughing.
[continues laughing]
- Gene.
- I'm sorry. It's just...
- I'm at an all-time low.
- I know. I'm sorry.
- Whoo-hoo! Okay.
- I'm begging for help.
- Okay, no. I know.
- You're laughing in my face.
[stammering] Are you...
Are you ready to change?
Yes, 100%.
- For real?
- For real. 100%.
So you're not gonna sit here
and whine and complain and go,
[imitates Eddie] "I made bad choices,"
and I'm gonna give you advice,
and you don't take it?
- I'm telling you, this is very different.
- But you understand where I'm coming from?
- You understand my trepidation?
- Yes.
'Cause that's something you've done
4,268 times in the past.
This one's... Yes.
I am 100% ready to change. I'm scared.
I never thought this was gonna happen.
- [sighs] Okay.
- Please.
All right. So then, first things first.
You have to...
You've gotta admit that you're an idiot.
You've got to admit that you are an idiot.
All right. I admit I'm an idiot.
I need you to say,
"My name is... and I am an idiot."
Because that declaration is real.
- Okay.
- Then it becomes real.
If you're willing
to humiliate yourself like that...
- Okay.
- Then I'll know you're serious.
My name is Edward Garrett,
and I am an idiot.
Okay. And now I need you to say,
"My name is Edward Garrett,
and my friend Gene was right.
- "I... I'm addicted to losing."
- Why do I have to say this about you?
My name is Edward Garrett,
and my friend, uh, Gene was right.
I'm addicted to losing.
- That was easy for you.
- Yes, you were right.
- So you must really be in trouble.
- I'm in trouble.
All right.
If you honestly start laughing
after all that, I'm gonna murder you.
Gene, this is not appropriate behavior.
[chuckling] I'm sorry.
- What is your problem?
- I don't know. It's just tickling me.
- You are a mean person.
- I don't mean to be. It's just...
[laughing] It's not funny. It's not funny.
All right, now...
We're gonna figure it out.
I get it. We're gonna figure it out.
We'll do whatever we have to do,
and we'll get you back on track,
- all right?
- All right. Thank you.
[Ron] Okay, how many did you knock off?
Six of them? Okay. No problem.
- [knock on door]
- We can get it done.
Well, I just have to order 'em.
[whispers] Want me to go out?
[Ron] No, it's not a problem.
Julio's runnin' out. I can have him do it.
Okay. Bye, Jim.
- Hey, man. Hey.
- Hey, man.
- How are you?
- Yeah. Not great.
- Uh...
- What's going on?
[stammers] I, uh...
I put myself in a shit situation, man,
and I'm really embarrassed about it.
And I'm, uh...
What's going on?
What's going on, Eddie?
[Eddie sighs]
I ended up losing money I didn't have.
And I'm now down a little over $20,000.
- I don't have $20,000.
- I know you don't.
- That's ridiculous!
- And I'm not asking for a loan.
I'm not begging you.
I'm done with that. Okay?
- Why are you here?
- Because I'm gonna start going to meetings
and making changes
- and I want the job.
- Okay.
I want to start working for you.
You wanna come work for me?
- Uh, really?
- Yes.
- Okay. All right. Uh...
- I need...
- This is the bottom. I know it is.
- Okay. Okay. All right. Um...
Here's what's gonna happen.
- I'm gonna offer you a job.
- Thank you.
You're gonna start at the bottom.
Like Chips would've wanted.
- Yeah, of course.
- Okay?
- Working seven days a week.
- Great.
- I'm giving nothing out, okay?
- Okay.
- I'm gonna work you hard, okay?
- Okay.
If that happens, problem-free
with no excuses for six months,
okay, whatever you didn't pay off
with the job on the debt,
I'll lend you the money
for the rest of the debt.
That's more than I asked, Ron.
That's what I'm giving you,
that's what you're getting,
and that's what's happening.
- Are you gonna come work for me?
- Yeah.
- Do you mean it?
- There'll be no screwups.
I know there won't be.
I know there won't be. All right?
- [Ron] Let's do this.
- [Eddie] Yeah.
[Ron] I'm glad you're here.
- [Eddie] Thank you.
- [Ron] Okay?
- Honestly, man, no bullshit. Thank you.
- You're welcome.
You're welcome. All right?
- And this is it. This is it. Okay?
- [groans]
'Cause I can't...
I can't take this anymore.
My heart can't take this.
- This is the last time we do this, okay?
- Yes, it's over.
All right? Yeah, I know it is.
[alarm beeping]
[alarm ringing]
Got it. Okay.
- [alarm continues]
- Okay. I get it. I got it.
Shut up. Okay. Shut the...
[Ron] This is the man, right here.
Here he comes.
Here's my guy. Here he is.
[both laughing]
How do you feel, buddy?
Get over here. Get over here.
All right, buddy.
Fellas, my buddy Eddie.
- My brother.
- Hey.
- Freddy. This is Tony. Alex. All right?
- Okay, yeah. Yeah.
This guy, uh, you know, he's very...
He's a little edgy right now
because he's never seen,
kind of, this light of the day.
Well, he has, but he usually
hasn't gone to sleep yet.
Uh, listen, man, um, he's my brother,
but that doesn't mean
you can't go hard on him, okay?
Don't go easy.
Work him in.
[indistinct chatter]
All right.
- This looks good on you. You all right?
- Yeah.
- What's this?
- What's what?
It's sweat. Haven't seen that before.
- [laughs]
- That's a new thing for you.
He doesn't know how to rake.
He doesn't know how to do anything.
He's used to a different type of rake.
This one's worse.
As long as he cuts grass
better than he bowls, I'm happy.
- All right? Give me a call.
- All right.
Give me a call. All right. [clears throat]
My man.
- My man.
- Back at it.
- I am very, very happy that you're here.
- Me, too, man.
Well, this is great.
Hey, everybody, this is Eddie.
You may recognize him.
He hasn't been here for months.
[overlapping chatter]
But, of course, the important thing
is that he's back.
- So, yeah.
- Nice to be back.
[alarm beeping]
[speaking Spanish]
Comin' to work?
[Eddie chuckles] Yeah. Sorry.
Sorry, at lunch, got knocked out.
[indistinct chatter]
[Eddie] You got it!
- You gotta clean it up.
- You gotta go again.
- Oh. Again?
- Yes!
You see. You see. You see.
- [woman 1] You did good.
- [woman 2] You're up!
- That was a great shot.
- Thank you.
[all laughing]
- Is that the one you wanted to use?
- Yeah.
- You can use it.
- Use the girly-girly ball.
- Actually, my thumb is stuck.
- [all laughing]
[woman] All right, I'm gonna go.
- All right. That hurt.
- [laughing]
[Eddie] That's nice.
He cared about you, and you knew that.
And that's what's important.
- Exactly.
- I feel the same way about my dad.
Chips cared about...
Like, I know that no matter what,
he... he loved me and my brother
more than anything.
[Eddie sighs]
[Gene] There can be success
at the end of this tunnel.
But for me,
it was an unbelievable feeling.
You feel like a kid.
That's what it is. You feel like a child.
Not even a child.
Sometimes you feel like an infant.
Like, somebody else is gonna
have to take care of the situation.
"I can't do anything.
What am I supposed to do?
I guess I could go to work
and make some more money."
But then people
are gonna expect things of you
and want you to do other stuff.
And, um, I was, uh...
I was being childish.
- [Ron] Hey, man.
- Hey, man.
Hey, I'm gonna...
I think I'm gonna go home.
I wanna catch Jude
before he falls asleep, okay?
Show me one more time
what I'm doing with this work order.
- Make sure I'm doing it right.
- Uh...
Yeah. You're basically putting these
into QuickBooks.
You get 'em all organized, then we can
process them out and send the bills out.
Okay. And then this is useless then?
- After... Yeah, then we're done with that.
- Okay.
Okay, great.
I'm proud of you.
You're doing great work.
- Thanks. That means a lot.
- And this helps a lot.
This is gonna help us out a lot.
All right?
Okay. Uh, once you're done with that,
you can toss it.
- Great. I love it.
- All right.
- Thanks, man.
- Thanks, man.
- Say hi to everybody, okay?
- [Ron] I will.
- How are you, my friend?
- [Adrian] Hey, what happened, Victor?
You pay today?
I pay right now!
- [laughs]
- Oh, my friend!
- That's for you, my friend.
- Oh!
- Okay. Okay.
- Thank you, Victor. Thank you.
- One last thing.
- Thank you, Victor.
- My name is Eddie.
- Oh, Eddie...
- It's okay. Thank you.
- Okay, Eddie. Okay.
- Thank you, my friend. Okay.
- Okay.
- We're good. Okay.
- Okay. Okay.
- I'll see you later. Thank you.
- All right. Okay.
- Goodbye, my friend.
- Bye. Bye. I love you. I love you.
- I love you, too, man. Okay. Bye.
- Okay. Bye.
- [Eva] This is why.
- [Eddie] Why?
Only because, in Mexico,
we don't have big tortillas.
We just have small tortillas.
So how can you make a burrito
with a big tortilla?
- [woman] You can make a big...
- I mean, with a small tortilla...
You can make a big tortilla.
It's not like you don't have
the technology to make a big tortilla.
- You're 100% right.
- [both laughing]
All of Mexico only has small tortillas.
You're good.
- [laughing]
- We're still just faking the time, like...
- It's always that time.
- It's always beer o'clock.
Gentlemen, I gotta go.
I got an early morning.
- What?
- I gotta go. I gotta go. I gotta go.
- I gotta go.
- He gotta go to his day care job.
- That's it, Art. See you, Pat.
- [Arthur] See you.
- Eddie.
- See you, buddy.
So I don't like to think of myself
as addicted to gambling, but...
you know, I keep playing
and I keep losing, so...
- You know, I'm not an idiot. Right?
- [all chuckling]
And that feeling of having nothing
and being a loser and being broke,
it sets in, and...
that's the feeling I'm chasing.
And I don't want to chase that anymore.
'Cause that's a...
You know, it's an awful feeling.
And so, yeah, I'm here,
and I'm looking to, uh...
stop chasing that shit
and figure something out.
- My favorite part. I love this part.
- Thank you.
- That's all you.
- I appreciate it.
- I'm proud of you. You're doing great.
- Thank you.
- I put a little bonus in there.
- What's this?
I do that for the guys who work... I put
a little extra at the end of the week.
All right? Listen.
Go have a fun weekend, okay?
- Treat yourself right. Okay?
- Thank you.
- I will.
- See you Monday.
- All right, buddy.
- All right, man.
- [engine starts]
- Don't behave.
- I got 200 bucks. I'm cash-rich!
- [chuckles] Yeah!
- Be careful.
- [chuckles]
- Hey.
- [Eddie] Hey.
[both speaking Spanish]
- You look so good.
- Aw.
- These are for you.
- You look great.
Thank you.
Mmm. [giggles]
- Ready?
- Yeah.
[Eddie] You know what? I've been,
you know, more into it than I expected,
in terms of the business.
I thought
that I wasn't gonna like that side,
but I... I kind of do.
And the way that it's,
you know, structured
is that right now Ron owns
all the equity in the company.
But, contractually, half of it is mine.
And it's his dream,
and, you know, becoming my dream,
that we own this thing 50-50.
So as I work and I save money,
I'm just gonna be buying into it.
So certain, you know, extra jobs...
we'll just do that as equity
until we're 50-50.
And then we're running
the whole thing together,
and we can do whatever we want with it.
And right now,
it's pretty successful, actually.
But I think
it could get better and better,
and we can pass it on to our kids,
and just...
[waitress] Hey, can I interest you guys
in dessert?
[waitress] Well, I'll just leave
these two menus here for you, okay?
- [Eddie] Thank you.
- [waitress] You're welcome.
What do you think?
You want a dessert, or...
- Not really.
- "Not really."
- You like this place?
- Yeah... Well, it's not my kind of place.
Well, it's not my kind of place either.
[chuckles] I was just here to impress you.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- I didn't know.
- Yeah.
- You know what?
- What?
I'm gonna take you to my kind of place.
- Okay, good.
- Yeah?
This is gonna be fun.
- I don't wanna do this.
- No, you do want to do this.
- I don't wanna do this.
- You're gonna do it, okay?
- Okay.
- No, seriously.
- You have to dance!
- Okay! Okay!
- Okay, fine. Yeah. I'll try...
- Just dance.
- Whoa! Okay?
- Okay. Let's go. Let's dance.
- Come on!
- Okay! Okay! Okay!
One, two, three. That's it?
- One, two, three.
- That's it!
- One, two, three. Okay.
- That's it.
- You look so sexy dancing.
- No, you're just saying that.
- No, you look sexy.
- Yes, I know. You ready?
[dance music playing]
[both laughing]
- [song stops]
- [applause and cheering]
[dance music playing in distance]
- You go. You go.
- No.
- Just you.
- Come on.
You go. You go.
[dance music playing]
[Eva moans and giggles]
- [Eva] Mnh-mnh.
- [Eddie] Mm-hmm.
[Eva giggles] Mnh-mnh.
I have to go.
Let me come inside.
You can't.
- Yes, I can. I'll be so quiet.
- No.
- I'll be quiet.
- Are you crazy?
Please let me come inside.
No, my mom and daughter are inside.
I know. I know. But I'll be so quiet,
they'll never even know.
- I'll be out so fast.
- [laughs] Quiet.
I'll be in and outside
of the house so fast.
- Oh, my God. No.
- Please, please...
No, don't ruin it.
- I don't wanna ruin it.
- It's too fast.
- I know.
- Okay? No.
- I need to go.
- No, wait a second.
[both moaning]
[door opens]
[Ron] Hey, ding-dong.
What's wrong with this picture?
- [Eddie] I don't know.
- This is in my hand, not your hand.
- Well, I didn't have the gas.
- I know. That's why I'm here.
That's why I was stuck on Western
for about an hour, to bring you gas.
- Are you fucking kidding me?
- I am not fucking kidding you, man.
You're making this my fault?
- You need gas to run a mower, correct?
- No shit! But that's not my job!
I got, like, five other jobs
I gotta go to.
Julio was literally down by the schoolyard
with a broken mower belt,
with a half-finished lawn!
Looks like crop circles!
Don't give me those laser eyes,
because this is your fuck-up, all right?
- Bring it down a notch!
- Okay, I'm sorry. How about this?
How about this? Dock my fuckin' pay.
I'm so sorry that I fucked up!
- Okay?
- Thank you.
I thought I'd done everything I can,
but I guess I haven't.
So I will come in early,
and I'll ask every fucking question I can.
- Thank you.
- I'm trying my hardest.
Thank you. I'm fucking with you.
I'm totally fucking with you right now.
I'm not mad at you.
Smile, see? I'm fucking with your brain.
That's what's happening right now,
in this moment.
Here, take the gas.
Freddy! You forgot the gas.
I got it for you!
- [Freddy] Great.
- [Eddie] Very funny.
You smell a little bit.
- You're an asshole.
- [Ron] I know. I know I am.
- [Ron] It goes right in that...
- I know where it goes!
[both chuckle]
- All right. You can do it.
- Your turn.
- You can do it!
- Go knock 'em down.
[Eddie] Come on, Jude!
[Ron] Oh, I like this.
I have a good feeling.
[Kris] Oh, that's a good one!
- [Eddie] It's bending good!
- [Ron] It's bending.
[Eddie] It's gonna hit it!
- [bowling pins clattering]
- [all] Yeah!
[Eddie] All right! All right, Ron!
Oh, no! Ron!
- You blew it, Ron!
- [laughing]
[Ron] Just give me time. Give me time.
Oh, no!
- [Ron] My arm is a little out of whack!
- Oh, no!
[Ron] All right, Uncle Eddie.
- [Eddie] You ready?
- Okay. Yeah.
I think so. Oh, I see.
Go wherever you'd like.
Wherever you'd like to start.
[all laughing]
- [Ron] That's all right.
- I mean...
- This is unbelievable.
- [Ron] You gave it your best.
You're in a great mood, man.
You've been in a great mood for a while.
You're doing great at work.
The crew loves you.
Yeah, they're good guys.
- Yeah.
- Good guys.
It's not as bad
as I thought it was gonna be.
Ah. See? You just need
to give it a shot, you know?
- Working ain't hard.
- Working ain't hard.
- It's not bad.
- No, it's fun.
You can get through it. That's good, man.
But do I wanna go to work each day?
[both] No.
- I get it. Now do you...
- Am I glad when the day is over?
[both] Yes.
Do I like having a paycheck?
[both] Yes.
Part of it is this...
This girl you're seeing...
I could tell, like, she's...
she's got you infused, man.
- She's got you infused with some juice!
- [chuckles]
Ron, she's the real deal.
- She's got everything.
- Yeah.
She's... incredible.
I... I've never felt this way about...
I've never had these feelings.
She's smart. She's cool.
We're taking our time.
We're getting to know each other.
- Fuck. I see the whole thing with her.
- Mmm-hmm.
- I see the whole... I see everything.
- Yeah.
- I've never felt that.
- That's awesome.
- It's different.
- Yeah.
Well, that's good to hear, man.
I can tell...
I mean, it's definitely, uh,
lifted you up, you know.
- No doubt.
- And, you know...
And that's happened before,
where something's lifted you up,
and then, you know...
it doesn't go the way you want it to go.
And then suddenly you're...
But what I'm telling you
is this one's different.
- [stammers] Okay.
- That's what I'm telling you.
All right, I... I'm telling you that...
Like, you... you've said that before,
and it might be... Maybe it is different.
Eddie. Eddie,
you're getting that look, and...
I'm getting a fucking lecture, man.
Shut up.
Shut the fuck up.
Fucking stop.
All right. I'm just saying
that I just wanna make sure
that you stay on course.
That's all. You know?
And if she's different, that's awesome.
And she probably is.
And so, I think
maybe we all should meet her.
- That would be great, wouldn't it?
- Yes.
- Yeah?
- Great.
- You're in for that?
- Sure.
Like, I don't know.
Whatever, uh... Dinner.
Why don't you bring her over for dinner?
We could do that.
We'll have some food, some wine,
we could get to know her.
I'd love to get to know her.
We'll have dinner.
- Can we have dinner?
- We'll come to the house.
Great. That's all I'm saying.
That would be great.
Okay, that's all I'm saying.
I... I can't...
I'm so happy you said that.
Great. Can we stop talking
about this right now?
- That's it. Done!
- Done!
Should've had that spare.
Could've had that spare.
[chuckles] You're not good enough
to hit the spare.
- I am good enough to hit the spare.
- No, you're not.
[Eddie and Eva laughing]
[Eddie] Not serious.
- This is just fun.
- [Eva] Okay.
- [Eddie] That's it.
- [Eva] I'm gonna have fun.
[Eddie] Okay, hold on.
I gotta park this well,
so he doesn't make fun of me too bad.
- Okay.
- [chuckles]
- Okay. Here's what's gonna happen.
- Okay.
We're gonna get to the door.
My brother's gonna make fun
of my parking job.
- Then he's gonna make fun of my clothes.
- [chuckles]
His joke will not be funny.
Then he's gonna look over at you
and have a realization and go, like,
"Well, you look so lovely."
Then you've gotta say, "Oh, thank you."
And then he's gonna do
this big show of, like,
"Welcome to the Taj Mahal."
I'm wondering if you could get any further
from the curb.
- [Eddie] Okay.
- [chuckles]
Ron, this is Eva.
- Eva, this is my brother.
- Hello.
- Eva, pleasure to meet you. Welcome.
- [chuckles]
Great, you did your shopping
at Schlub For Less?
- Great. Fantastic.
- Yeah.
You look spectacular.
- Oh, thank you so much.
- You're welcome.
Welcome to Garrett Manor.
[all chuckling]
Oh. Sense of humor, too. Very nice.
- Yeah, very.
- Welcome. Come on in.
- Come on in to this, my humble abode.
- [Eddie] Okay.
Why are you jogging like that, Ron?
- I'm excited.
- Did you see the way...
I'm excited!
- [Eva] Yeah, we are, too.
- I'm excited you're here.
- [Eddie] Well, our dad, you know...
- Had to buy in a lot.
Yeah, he played a lot of cards...
and lost a lot.
So as they're sitting with him,
our dad was constantly going,
"Chips! Chips!"
Until, finally, they just said,
"Hey, Chips, let's go to the casino."
And he would say, "Okay."
And so he was Chips.
- [Ron] Yeah.
- [Eva] Maybe I'm just lucky.
- [Eddie] Yeah?
- [Eva] Yeah.
[Eva] I don't think I'm such...
I mean, that good of a mom.
She's just amazing...
[Eddie] She's an amazing mom.
- [Kris] I bet.
- I'm sure she is.
[Kris] And it's hard
to be a single mom.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
But she must love Eddie.
I bet they get along really well.
[Eva] Well...
- Yeah, go ahead. I don't care.
- Well... she doesn't know him yet.
- [Kris] You haven't met her yet?
- [Ron] You guys haven't met?
- [Kris] Oh, okay.
- [Ron] Okay.
- I don't know. I mean...
- [Kris] Takin' it slow?
Yeah, I think there's, like,
many filters you have to go through
when you have kids, so...
- [Eddie] Which I agree with.
- Yeah, absolutely.
[Eva] Yeah, I mean, if this is real,
Eddie will have enough time
to get along with her, but...
she has never met any of my boyfriends
or people that I'm going out with
- or anything.
- Yeah, so...
we think it's smart, but I'm excited
- for the day when you say yes.
- [Eva] You would be the first.
You're a smart lady. Yes.
- [Eddie] I'll be excited to meet her.
- [Eva] Yeah?
I don't introduce Jude
to any of the guys that I'm dating.
- Mmm-mmm. Mmm-mmm.
- [all chuckling]
- Nice move.
- [Kris] It's a firm rule.
- How 'bout...
- I'm on a need-to-know basis.
These are tomatoes.
Look, there's a ripe one.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- She's amazing. She's incredible.
- I think so, too.
- I really like her.
- Do not mess this up.
I love her. I love her.
- Okay, I'm not planning that.
- I know you're not.
- I'm just saying, I love... I like her.
- Yes.
- [Eddie] I do, too.
- [Ron] A lot.
- [Eddie] Me, too. She's great.
- [Ron] Yeah.
- [Eddie] It's gonna be good.
- [Ron] That's good.
Like, she's just...
You do not faze her at all.
- Okay, I... I'm not, like, a mobster.
- [both laughing]
Well, I really appreciate you coming.
I really liked it.
- You did?
- Yeah. I had a lot of fun.
Good. I actually had fun, too.
- I never have fun when it's with...
- [both chuckle]
- With my brother, I know.
- Aw.
- But this was great.
- I know.
- But thank you.
- [Eva chuckles softly]
[Eddie sighs]
[sighs] Okay.
So, um, here's the thing.
Uh, my mom and Emma,
they're watching a movie right now,
and they're coming back,
like, in one hour.
So maybe we can...
[both chuckling]
Maybe we can...
[jazz music playing]

- Oh, yes, I love you
- Need you
- Oh, yes, I need you

[cell phone ringing]
[automated voice]
You are receiving a collect call
from Cook County
Correctional Facility inmate...
[automated voice] If you would like
to accept these charges, please press one.
If you would like to decline this call...
[dial tone]
[sighs and clears throat]
[Michael] Yo, Eddie. I got some good news.
Hey, what's up?
Hey, yo, they're gonna be
letting me outta here early.
I'mma get out a week from tomorrow.
What? Wow.
Yeah, some clerical bullshit, man.
But, hey, they lettin' me out of here.
So, uh...
I hope everything's good there.
Yeah. Man, great. What... That's...
I mean, that's great news for me, too.
And listen. Don't worry, all right?
Our deal still stands.
I'll take care of you.
I'm... Yeah. I'm sure you will.
Great. This...
Man, this is a great day.
I... I was looking to get rid of it,
so... perfect.
All right. I'll see you next Monday.
You good, Eddie?
Yeah, me? Yes. I'm excited.
All right.
Be safe in there.
[call disconnects]
- Hey, bud. Okay.
- Eddie.
What's going on?
You're supposed to be in Ravenswood.
- Can I get a minute of your time?
- Five minutes.
- I understand. But can I... I know.
- You're here. At my desk.
I know, and I don't wanna be.
So can I just get...
I don't want you here either.
You need to...
- What are you doing?
- Ron... I...
This is the last thing that I wanna be
doing right now. You gotta know that.
[stammering] There was an... an unexpected
and unfortunate event...
I have an unexpected
and unfortunate event,
which is there's a push mower
that's not being pushed,
- and I'm a man down in my crew. Here's...
- I need...
- I need you to listen to me.
- What are you doing here?
[stammers] Just listen.
- The deal that we made...
- Yeah?
That's been going great.
So far. Until now.
But it's been...
I have lived up to everything I said.
Isn't that true?
- Isn't that true you've seen a change?
- Yeah.
Isn't that true that you've seen a change?
- Eddie, come on...
- Just listen to me, Ron!
Don't do that face. Listen!
I will just pay you back.
It'll just take longer.
- The same payment plan.
- It'll just take... Six weeks in?
You're asking me to give you the money
that we decided for six months?
- Are you kidding me?
- No, I'm not kidding!
I don't care if you give... I don't care
if you're paying me back five times...
- You think I wanna be doing this?
- No!
- Do you think I wanna be doing this?
- Do you know how embarrassing this is?
- Listen to me, Eddie.
- Do you know how much I hate this?
- Yeah... Eddie...
- Just please!
- Eddie...
- Just say yes!
- Say yes here, Ron.
- I'm fucked.
Say yes here, Ron.
The answer's no.
I'm sorry, Eddie.
You're not getting the money.
That's not the deal.
That's not how this works.
Every year, hundreds...
I mean, hundreds of people
- go missing in national parks.
- [Arthur] They do.
You could, for instance, drive your car
to Rocky Mountain National Park...
that's not that far away...
leave it open,
leave half a cigarette burning,
- and then you disappear and vanish.
- [Arthur] I like that shit.
I'll be there to pick you up.
- We take you up to Canada and do whatever.
- Then where do I go?
What do I do
for the rest of my life?
[Berg] That's your choice.
- [Berg] You have a choice.
- Okay, yeah...
- [Berg] Go to Guatemala.
- All right. I...
- [Berg] What do you have here anyways?
- Okay. Enough.
- [Berg] You cut grass.
- Okay, enough, man. Enough.
I don't wanna fake my own fuckin' death.
What I'm asking for is ways where I can
come up with this money, man. That's it.
A good friend of mine
made $10,000 in, like, two hours.
- How? How?
- In Vegas. He has some abs.
- We gotta paint some abs on you...
- Shut the... Arthur, shut...
Dude, this is serious.
You get a lot of money.
We buy a big package.
We step out with baby powder
and all that stuff, and we move it.
We are not becoming cocaine dealers, guys.
- [Berg] Do you wanna live or die?
- I wanna...
What's wrong with moving a little yak?
It's all to yuppies down
at the Chicago Stock Exchange anyways.
- Yay, yo!
- Who cares. Those guys are expendable.
We're not fucking... Don't say, "Yay, yo!"
We're not selling fuckin' sneeze. Enough!
I need a real option.
- Go on the offensive.
- [Eddie] Okay.
Break into his place. Be there...
- next time he comes home in the dark...
- Great idea.
- [Eddie] This is the worst idea.
- Three rabbits lined up.
- Killed. Blood all over your face.
- Yeah, you go Crazytown.
Strongly imply
that you're a devil worshipper.
- [Eddie laughs]
- [Berg] I mean, you laugh,
but that's the best idea I've heard.
[Arthur] The best idea we came up with.
[Eddie] If that's the best
that you guys have...
You should make an app.
Those guys make a ton of money.
- Make an app?
- [Berg] That's a saturated business, man.
- [Paul] What?
- [Berg] That's a saturated business.
[Paul] What does saturated mean?
[Berg] It means there's too many people
making apps.
There's too many apps out there.
[Paul] You just gotta make a good one.
Really? [stutters]
How is he gonna make a good app?
The guy knows nothing about technology.
- He mows lawns for a living.
- [Paul] It was a suggestion.
[Paul] All right,
make a lawn mowing app.
- That's a good idea.
- That's not a bad idea.
[Arthur] I like that. That's good.
- I'm fucked! No, I'm fucked!
- Okay. Shh...
- Okay, I hear you.
- Sorry I came, but I'm fucked.
I need you to be quiet.
- I've got... I'm listening.
- Gene.
- You fucking listen to me.
- I'm listening.
- Listen to me!
- I'm listening.
- I'm fucking scared.
- I'm listening,
but I need you to be quiet.
I need you to be quiet, okay?
I got fucking neighbors. I got a kid.
I need you to be quiet, okay?
- I need you to listen to me.
- I'm listening.
- I've done everything you've said.
- But you gotta quiet down.
I'm quiet. I'm quiet.
- Am I quiet?
- You're quiet.
- Relax.
- All right.
I've done everything you fucking said.
I've done everything my brother said.
- I've done every... Gone to meetings.
- God damn it.
I'm worse off now
than I've ever fucking been.
And I need a plan B now.
Now, Gene, 'cause I don't have an idea,
and I'm fucking scared.
Okay. Listen.
Whatever the problem is,
it's not gonna get worse tonight.
It's 2:30 in the morning.
It's not gonna get worse now.
I need something now.
I can't give you something now, okay?
I cannot... I will give it to you
tomorrow at the meeting.
Tomorrow at the meeting. I promise.
- The meeting.
- Listen. Okay, fuck the meeting.
No, fuck it. Look at me.
Fuck the meeting. Call me at 7:00 a.m.,
- and we can start hashing it out then.
- I'll call you now.
You can't call me now,
because I have a child in there.
And I have neighbors.
I cannot bring you in the house.
- All right.
- Okay?
- I just got my shit back together.
- All right.
- I've got my shit together. Shh...
- Hey. All right.
- Okay? But listen.
- All good.
- Listen.
- All good.
Just hang in there until the meeting,
- and we're good to go.
- Sorry I came.
I'm good.
We're good.
Hey, Eddie.
- No! No! No! No!
- Fuck, Eddie! Eddie!
- No!
- Eddie. We gotta cut you off, Eddie.
We gotta cut you off.
- Two weeks, okay?
- No!
- You can't come back for two weeks.
- No!
- We gotta cut you off, Eddie.
- No!
Go home, man. You're drunk.
Eddie. Get out of here, Eddie.
- Eddie, you can't come back for two weeks!
- No!
- [Eddie shushing]
- Okay? Get out of here.
Get out of here, Eddie. You're drunk.
Go home. Eddie.
Go. Go. Go.
- Fuck you both very much.
- Get out of here.
- [Eddie] Bye. Fuck you!
- Yeah.
[Eva speaking distortedly]
[distortion continues]
What do you think? Eddie?
Eddie, are you listening?
What was I talking about?
Everybody eating dinner.
- I'd love it.
- With Emma?
With... yeah. Oh, yeah.
In the weekend.
- This weekend?
- Yeah.
When? Which night?
Okay. What time?
- At dinner. [chuckles softly]
- Give me a time.
- Give me a time.
- 7:00?
- 7:00.
- Maybe.
- Okay, I'll be there at, uh...
- Do you care?
Yes, I... Of course I care.
- I've been dying to meet her.
- Okay.
This is great news.
I'm excited, too.
I think it's gonna be great, right?
I think it's perfect.
- Okay.
- I can't wait.
[Gene] The woods allow
that you have that time.
- [man] Yeah, man, it was great.
- [Gene] Yeah.
- [man] Yeah.
- [woman] It was gorgeous.
Well, take care, you guys.
- Good to see ya.
- All right. See you.
- Take care, man.
- Nice to see you.
All right.
Hey, are you hungry?
- Yeah, man.
- All right, let's get out of here.
- All right.
- Let's get a bite to eat.
I gotta say, you know,
like, I like having a job.
I like working my way up in that...
in that company.
I... I like having a girlfriend.
I like feeling like an adult.
And not like a degenerate.
And I don't want to gamble.
I don't have the urge.
I don't want to be...
I don't want to be in that world.
And even if I did, man, I can't,
because I can't even go to my casino.
I've been banned.
So I have to make this kind of money
that I don't know
how I'm gonna make by Monday
and... I'm at a loss, Gene.
[Gene sighs]
[stammering] I'm gonna say...
say right now,
like, the worst thing
that a sponsor can possibly say.
I... There's a game
that I can get you into.
It's my old game.
It's a high stakes game.
And you can win
a lot of money really fast.
But, on the other hand, you could also
lose a lot of money really fast.
And I just gotta say to you,
man, I'm telling you,
from what you've told me,
if you lose,
you gotta get out of here, man.
- I mean, like, do not...
- Yeah.
Do not pass Go. Do not collect...
Don't go to your house.
- All right.
- Go. Go.
[sighs] So I guess what I'm saying is...
[sighs] You know...
if you want me to make the call,
I will make the call.
- [sighs] Make the call.
- Yeah.
I don't see what other choice...
I don't want to, but make the call.
- Yeah.
- [sighs]
[dance music playing]
[Eddie] Looks like a scary painting
out here, huh?
[Nicky] Where are we, man?
We're in the suburbs, man.
This ain't the city.
It's scary out here.
So, look, when we get in there,
you know, you're gonna be kinda
my bagman, my muscle.
- Right.
- So it's important
that you're always
right next to me, to the right.
I want you holding the bag.
So when I go to get money,
you give it to me.
It should be really fluid.
It's what a lot of these guys
are gonna have.
And it's just important that
it seems like we've done this before.
- All right. Yeah.
- You know what I mean?
[Nicky] I feel like we look
like men in black, man.
[Eddie] Now I'm insecure
that we look like men in black.
- I don't want to look like men in black.
- We dress up.
[Nicky] We put on suits.
We look like we know what we're doing.
Don't say that when we get in there.
I don't want them thinking...
Remember, I've got to be
at that dinner tomorrow night at seven,
so we got 24 hours to make that money.
I feel good.
- Try it.
- Yeah.
[door beeps]
[Eddie] Hello?
- It's only a plant.
- I know, I know.
[Eddie scoffs]
I mean, I have no idea.
Eddie Garrett.
- Who's he?
- Oh, that's my bagman.
- What's a bagman?
- You don't know what a bagman is?
Uh, the guy who carries all my money.
Well, we don't have
anybody else on the list.
Come on man, I mean...
We got one car. We drove from the city.
- I thought he'd be able to come with me.
- Come on.
Thank you.
Hi. Can I get you something to drink?
[Eddie] Yeah. I'll take a whiskey.
Too late he's found he loves her
So much he wants to die
But drink to a fool...
They're playing Hold 'Em, right?
[dealer 1] Yeah, they're playing Hold 'Em.
Why are they doing it at that table?
It should be the longer table.
That's the owner's choice of table.
But it's not a Hold 'Em table.
It just seems weird.
I don't know what to tell you.
It's the table the owner likes.
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it.
No, I'm not worried about it. It's just...
It's not a Hold 'Em table.
[dealer 2] Seat open.
- You gotta be faster, Nicky, please.
- [dealer 2] $500.
[man 1] Is it dollars?
- [dealer 2] Five.
- [man 2] Yen.
[man 3] Okay. Call.
Hey, how you doing?
- Blues Brothers!
- [all chuckling]
They still owe you money.
- Very good.
- I like your shoes.
[Eddie] Yeah, thanks, man.
It's 15.
$15,000, our buy-in today.
I heard it was, uh, five.
Not tonight.
- Fifteen. Mmm-hmm.
- It's 15?
Big boy game.
We've been playing this way
for the last 24 hours.
Okay. Lock my seat.
[indistinct chatter]
They're saying it's 15.
Fifteen more or 15 total?
- What?
- Fifteen more or 15 total?
They said... No, I've already put five,
so it'll be ten more.
- All right.
- They're also being fucking dicks.
The guy even said something
about the Blues Brothers.
- Do you want to fucking bail?
- No.
I'm not gonna fucking bail.
Get your hands out of there. Stop.
I can't be sitting here doing this
for so long.
Also, dude, you're... like,
you're supposed to have that shit ready.
Like, that's part of the thing.
- This guy runs like God.
- [chuckles]
Chips, please.
Or the guy bluffs, too.
[all exclaim]
- Right.
- You bluffed with that?
- $15,000. Good luck.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
- Nice bluff.
You can get a haircut with that money.
- Pitbull's not messing around.
- [all laugh]
- Welcome, sir.
- Yeah.
- I'm Brad.
- Hey. Eddie.
- Nice to meet you.
- Chips, man.
- Money, money, money.
- Small, big.
- [Eddie] What's that?
- [dealer] $1,750.
[Brad] I'm gonna draw.
I'll raise you.
[Brad] It's cheaper to fold.
[Eddie] Can't win if you fold, right?
All right, I fold.
- Small, big?
- [Eddie] I know you have a four.
I know that didn't do anything.
[speaking indistinctly]
- [Eddie] Did you have a king?
- No.
You did have the best hand
if you had a pair.
I did, yeah. I did. I did. Fuck.
Cards are good.
[dealer] Thank you, sir.
[man] Yeah.
Let's make it $1,000.
All right, we've got a pot.
You've got to be kidding me, dude.
All right, I fold.
I can buy behind, right?
- [dealer] Sure.
- All right.
Fifteen, Nick.
Fifteen behind.
- [Nicky] Ten.
- Okay.
$700 all day.
That's five.
[dealer] $15,000. Good luck, sir.
Thank you, sir.
[Brad] I'll go $4,000.
- $4,000?
- Yeah.
- $4,000.
- $4,000.
[Brad] That's a good card.
I'm gonna go ahead
and bet whatever that is.
What is that?
I mean, is there logic to your betting?
- Or you just...
- [all laugh]
- You just push?
- [Brad] I push.
Do you even think? You just push?
You want to flip coins for money?
Two for $10,000.
I mean, give me a fucking break, man.
You don't have a queen.
[Brad] $10,000 to find out.
[Eddie] I'm gonna go all in.
[dealer] All in.
- Let's see 'em.
- Oh, for...
- [Brad] Sorry.
- [man] Nice hand.
Lock my seat.
[dealer] Seat locked.
[door beeps]
[Eddie softly] Fucking Christ, man.
They're playing crazy, and I don't want
to flip a fucking coin for everything.
I can't do that.
That just... It's too scary.
If I knew it was gonna be like this,
I wouldn't have come.
Oh, you fucking... This is...
I gotta run.
I gotta run. I gotta get out of town.
I have enough money to start...
I don't know where the fuck
I'm gonna go. [scoffs]
[Emma] Hi, Eddie, this is Emma.
Me and my mom...
Well, technically, just my mom...
[Eva speaking Spanish]
Was wondering if you
like chicken or steak.
So I'm gonna be really excited
to meet you.
[Eva speaking in Spanish]
[Eva] Just... just text me, okay?
Tell me what you want. [chuckles]
- Bye.
- [Emma] Okay. Bye.
Let's play cards, man.
[dealer 1] Chips, please!
- [dealer 2] How much?
- A bunch!
This is Jamie here.
He's at your service.
- [all] Jamie!
- How you doing?
- Check-raise.
- [all laughing]
[indistinct chatter]
Well, if Stan's in, I gotta be in.
I told you earlier it was king, nine.
You got in trouble with that.
That's why I gave you that smile.
All right, gentlemen.
I'm gonna take a break,
and Brian's gonna take over. Good luck.
That's for you.
- Well, cheers, guys.
- Cheers.
[indistinct chatter]
Now come on, he got a straight.
I only...
[all laughing]
Better run, my friend.
[dealer] Check or bet?
[Eddie] Check.
[dealer] Aces here.
[girls laughing]
[man] Check.
[dealer] Next one's on you.
[indistinct chatter]
I think we need to see it.
- Let's see it.
- [Nicky] You want to?
[Nicky] Get it out.
- Look at this.
- [gasps] Ooh!
- [both chuckling]
- How luscious.
- [Eddie] Oh! Yeah!
- Come on!
- I hit it! Nut flush!
- On the river!
Oh, yes!
Set of deuces, set of tens...
- Unbelievable.
- Oh, fuck!
I did it. I'm even. I did it.
I did it. [laughs]
I did it. And that time it was $6,000.
- Let's go.
- I'm over 100.
- I did it. I fucking did it, man.
- You did it.
You should've seen that hand.
I blew their asses out of the toilet.
- Let's go, man. Cash out.
- Yeah.
I'm having a hard time
breathing, actually.
- Oh, fuck, man, I...
- What?
- If I went down there...
- Get the chips. Let's go.
I, no... I'm in. Hold on.
- Just give me one second?
- Cash him out.
Don't cash me out!
Hold on. I didn't say cash out.
- I didn't...
- He's in.
- He's gotta come back.
- Get the money.
- I feel weird right now.
- Let's go. You did it.
We have a lot more money left.
- Cash him out now.
- Hold... No! I didn't say...
- Hold on! I didn't say cash him out.
- Sir... Jamie? Cash...
Don't... don't cash me...
- Listen to me.
- He's done.
I think it's a mistake
if I leave right now.
And I mean that seriously.
- I think I play two hands.
- Don't say this.
I think I play a couple more.
If I lose... Ow!
- Come on. Let's go.
- God damn, it feels like there's a...
- You have the money. Let's do it.
- If I... I know.
And if I... I'm up... I'm above 100.
So I play until I...
One second. One... I... Ow!
- Fucking...
- You're crazy man. Get...
- I... I had some...
- Cash him out.
[Nicky] Cash him out, guys.
Oh, fuck, I'm having a heart attack.
I'm having a heart attack!
Oh, it hurts so fucking bad!
I'm dying.
Help me, I'm dying.
Could somebody call 911?
Cash him out!
Don't fucking die on me, man.
Please! Please go faster!
Please go faster!
This fucking neighborhood.
I can't go 50 miles an hour.
I don't want to die! I don't want to die!
Not yet! Not yet! Not yet!
No! No!
Oh, my God.
How you feeling, man?
Fine. I... I mean...
You're gonna be all right.
You're gonna be fine.
They said you'll be okay.
- Yeah?
- You're all right.
- So I'm fine?
- You're okay. Yeah.
- Okay, good.
- Nicky told me what happened.
This is not who I am anymore.
I swear to God...
- I know.
- This is not who I am anymore.
I know, man.
- But, really, it's not the same old thing.
- Okay.
Going to work... I want to do that.
I want to get in with the company.
You're... You will. You are. You're in.
- That's it. Don't worry about that.
- For real?
- For real. It's okay.
- Okay.
This isn't you saying it
'cause I'm in a hospital bed in a gown?
Maybe a little bit.
I'm saying it
'cause the gown looks great on you.
I'm trying to bust your balls.
- Okay. But I mean it, man.
- Yeah.
- That's the real me.

You're good. All right?
I'm glad you're back.

- Could you please hand me my phone?
I've got to call Eva.
I was supposed to be at her place at 7:00.
I'm meeting her kid tonight.
There wasn't a phone in there.
You had your wallet, keys, gold chain...
There was no phone in there.
- It's fine.
- It's not fine, man.
I'll call. It's not a big deal. Relax.
Let's not have another panic attack.
I'll call her.
What's her number?
I mean, I don't have it...
I don't have her phone number memorized.
- You don't have her number memorized?
- It's in my phone.
You don't remember
your girlfriend's number?
- What's wrong with you?
- This is not the time
- to get on me.
- I remember my girlfriend's number...
- Okay.
- From, like, high school. Okay, sorry.
I can take you. Come on.

Don't worry. We're gonna leave now.
We're gonna get you there.
You're gonna look spiffy.

- Forty-five minutes late.
I did not want to be late on this one.
- I was calling...
- I know.
I didn't have my phone on me.
My phone was at one place,
and my body was at another.
- Stop justifying yourself.
- No, I'm not...
I... I had a heart attack.
- What?
- I had a heart attack.
My... There was a...
- Are you serious?
- Something happened to my heart,
and I fell on the ground,
and I was carried out

- Oh, God.
- Yeah.
- Are you okay?
Yeah, I'm physically fine.
- I need to do a follow-up, because...
- Come in.
I didn't get all the tests,

Okay. But I didn't...
- Okay. Okay.

You were dying?
Well, I'm dying to meet you.
I've been wanting to meet you for so long.
I can't believe I'm seeing you in person.
This is cool for me. Thank you.
