Of course it's not your call.
They keep you on a tight leash.
- You're like the family pet.
- [BOTTLE FIZZES] Eat a dick, Billy.
Every family's got one.
The hell are you talking about, man? A floater.
The turd that just won't flush.
What's your problem, man? How much money you got in your pocket? Right.
There's your answer.
You know what, I can get my money from the storage unit anytime I want.
Money's in a storage unit, huh? Yo, it's better off there than here with you.
You'd probably blow through it in a week, OD under the pier or something.
I tell you what.
Take me to the storage unit right now, I'll give you 10% of my cut.
[SCOFFS] No.
Come on! Floaters like us, we gotta stick together.
I'm nothing like you, Billy.
Hey, asshole! You're one needle away from becoming me.
[DOOR SLAMS] [BOWLING PINS CRASH] Looks pretty rundown.
This neighborhood's on the rise.
What about the clientele? Is it mostly military? Yeah, but we got people coming up from San Diego all the time now.
I mean, look, you spruce it up, add a deejay, it's hipster heaven.
[CHUCKLES] So, um, annual income is approximately? Look, I can get you financials, okay, I mean, but this place is about potential.
Now, it's listed at 90OK.
But the owner's eager to sell, so if you're interested in making an offer, I'd do it soon.
As long as your financing is in place.
- Well, that's fine.
I got cash.
- Great.
They're putting in a Starbucks down the block.
A weed dispensary, too.
This place could be a gold mine for the right buyer.
Okay.
Well, thank you very much.

He won't listen.
Somebody needs to kick his ass.
[GRUNTS] People usually give you cash after you kick their ass? You think they all hate him, but there's a reason the kid's holding all the money.
Yeah, 'cause he's gonna get shot first.
He needs to feel powerful.
So let him.

Yeah, I don't know.
Craig's being a total asshole.
He already scared Linc away from me.
