Better Call Saul (2015) s06e10 Episode Script


Oh, come on, you
Can I gave you a hand?
If I needed a hand, I'd ask for it
Thank you very much.
There you go, miss.Thanks.
Marion. How's it going?
Eh. Could be worse. Brain's still working.
Is it a pastrami day?
- Yeah. Uh, one and a quarter pounds.
- You got it.
Not a pound and a half,
you overshot last time.
Oh. Sorry 'bout that.
What do we have here?
Extra-sharp Wisconsin cheddar.
"Extra-sharp," hmm?
You can keep it, Wisconsin. Ugh.
It wasn't like this when I came before.
Need some help?
I'm fine!
Are you sure you don't want a push?
I'm sure.
What happened to poor Nippy?
Ah. It was my fault.
I was driving with the windows open,
you know, before all this hit.
And I don't know
Something got into him.
He saw a cat or something but he jumped.
Oh, no.
I pulled right over,
screaming my head off, "Nippyyyy!"
- Ohh.
- But he was gone.
Oh, that's terrible.
I hope you find him.
If you could keep an eye out.
Yeah, I will. Sure.
I-I live right over here
on on Clementine.
This is my route.
When I can get this thing going.
Maybe just a little push.
Well, if you're sure you don't mind.
Nah. I'm happy to help.
Okay. Throw it in neutral.
And one, two, three.
There you go.
Oh, sorry for the trouble.
Put it back in drive. Not at all.
- Have a nice day.
- Yeah, you too.
Hope you find Nippy.
Thank you.
Ohh. What in the world?
How ya doing, Marion?
- Great.
- Ah, good.
- Are you okay?
- Oh, yeah.
Okay, okay, okay.
it's my favorite meal to cook.
Hmm. I like it. And I think my secret is
In the kitchen, Jeffie!
I have a little trick.
I bet it's the same we do in my family.
An egg. I knew it.
And you really work it in.
I mean, you got to use your hands.
You are speaking my language.
- Do you cook?
- Uh, just a few favorites, nothing fancy.
Yeah, simple's best. I mean, why fuss?
Oh. Jeffie, this is Mr. Takavic.
Oh, please, Mr. Takavic was my father.
Call me "Gene."
Don't worry, hon, he's not an ax murderer.
If he was gonna chop me to bits
he'd have done it already.
Right, Gene?
Well, don't just stand there
like a bump on a log, join us.
Sometimes he gets a little
nervous around new people.
- Ma
- Well, you do.
Now come on.
Grab a glass and sit down.
Tell him how we met, Gene.
Oh, yeah.
Uh, well, I was looking for Nippy
Yeah. His dog, poor thing.
Well, he ran away.
And Gene here was putting up posters.
And your mom was on her way back
from Hansen's.
And my wheels got stuck in the snow.
Well, that was before
the whole thing conked out.
Yeah, but Gene here saved the day.
He even fixed my dumb scooter
With duct tape!
- To Gene.
- Come on.
- Yeah.
- Ahh
So your mom tells me you're a cab driver?
Have you ever driven anyone famous?
Oh, he sure did.
Tell him, Jeffie.
Sammy Hagar.
No! The Red Rocker?!
Hey, I love him.
- That's it!
- Hey!
What was he like? Big tipper?
I guess.
- Mm.
- Oh. You know what? You stay comfy.
I will rescue this beautiful creation.
Look at that.
Gene's staying for dinner.
Dude, what the fuck?!
I know it's awkward, right?
But you don't have to call me "dad." Yet.
I dunno what this is about
But all I have to do
is pick up the phone
and it's bye-bye, Saul Goodman.
Yeah, but you haven't picked up
the phone yet, have you?
Or tried to strong-arm me for cash.
And guess what? I know why.
Because reward money, blackmail
That's not gonna tickle your pickle.
I know what you really want.
Oh, yeah? What's that?
You want in the game.
"The game"? W-What What game?
The game.
The one you've been watching
your entire life.
You got your nose pressed up
against the glass,
peerin' in while the big boys play.
Man, speak English.
What the hell are you talking about?
The game.
It's right there
You can see it, but you can't touch it.
The cars, the clothes, the cash.
The ladies.
It's about knowing all the angles, you know,
putting it all on the line and winning big.
But here you are, Jeffie.
Standing outside with the suckers.
Tryin' to pay off that cab,
sweatin' the bills,
gettin' older.
It's so close, but, damn it,
you just can't get in.
Until now.
I can make it happen.
Saul Goodman.
So, here's the deal.
I will show you the game.
And then we're done.

Oh, wow.
Mmm. Mm-mm-mmm-mmm-mmm.
So, did you catch the game last night?
The game?
What the hell is wrong with those guys?
I can't even talk about it.
Really thought this was the year.
Yeah, me too.
You know, Texas wasn't even ranked.
I know.
Play-calling was crazy.
The worst.
Three downs to make a foot and a half?
How hard can it be?
Well, you can't win
when Martinez plays like that.
I mean, what's up with him?
You think something's off?
Next week, Oklahoma State.
- The Okies.
- Huh?
Uh, that's what we called them.
- You ever done the drive? Nice.
- Topeka, Wichita
Well, then you haven't done it.
Can't beat Memorial.
- Damn straight.
- What do you love most?
Now, that's a tough one.
You think Weedon'll come through
on his home turf?
- Yeah.
- No way!
With that thumb? Thumb's a deal breaker.
I'll tell you something.
The Cougar helmet was the thumb-breaker.
Mmm. Mm-mm-mmm.
Welp, I should probably be heading back.
Well, thanks again.
Oh, it's the least I could do.
Have a good one.
Come back anytime.
- Have a good night, Gene.
- Goodnight, Krista.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
Gene, Gene, the Cinnabon machine.
I could smell ya
coming up the hallway.
Oh, I get that all the time.
Here you go, guys.
Hey, can I
Hey, Gene, don't even ask. Grab a coffee.
That was one hell of a game, huh?
What were you thinking at halftime?
Well, uh, I was thinking,
"Hey, this could, uh
This could be a long one."
And I tell you, you know who
I'm not bitching about today?
- Pelini. That's Yeah, the coach.
- Pelini. Nah.
You know me.
I go at him when things are bad,
but when he does something good,
I'm all about it.
- Goodnight, Gene.
- Goodnight!
They got him in there for a reason.
Mm-mmm-mmm. Mmm.
I still got it.
Can I help you, sir?
Oh, yeah.
Uh, no thanks.
I'm just browsing.
Okay. Yeah.
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
15, 17, 18.
6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
11, 12, 13,
14, 15.
Alright. A a and
17 feet.
Right here.
Ribbon it off.
Come on.
All the way, guys.
Check, check, one, two. One, two.
Alright, let's move.
Starting position. Right down there.
Alright, we ready?
And grab your bag!
And go!
That's it! Move! Move!
Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!
One! Armani suits and run!
Two! Air Jordan shoes for you!
Three! Linen shirts for free!
Four! Cashmere sweaters out the door!
Five! Patagonias to survive!
Six! Swanky sweatsuits in the mix!
- Halt!
- Ohh. What?
Too many.
You gotta be precise.
Just three of each.
And why do I gotta run
around like an asshole?
I already told you.
Three minutes.
Got it? That's our window.
Yeah, but why three minutes?
Because at three minutes,
that's when security sees you
on the cameras and the cops haul
your ass to jail, alright?
- So let's go.
- Wait there's cameras?
Sure, there's cameras!
They erase the tapes every 72 hours.
So that's why you only take three of each.
And only the pricey stuff.
When the store opens the next morning,
they won't even know they were robbed.
By the time they do inventory, abracadabra!
No more Jeffie on the tape, right?
So, three items, three minutes.
It's easy.
Let's go.
How many of each?
Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.
I dunno
What don't you know?
It's just, this whole thing
It seems crazy.
Is this too hot for you?
You know, just say so.
You know what? Screw it.
I'll tell you what's crazy.
Fifty-year-old high school chemistry teacher
comes into my office.
The guy is so broke,
he can't pay his own mortgage.
One year later, he's got a pile of cash
as big as a Volkswagen.
That's crazy.
I'll do it.
This sounds good to you?
I think it'll work.
Well, look at you.
You're young.
You're probably, uh, fast on the feet, huh?
Okay, I-I didn't say I wouldn't do it.
I just had some questions
about, like, logistics.
Are you in or out?
Back to one.
Check, test, one, two, one, two.
Okay, and ready, set, action!
Move! Move! Move!
Pick up the pace! Go! Go! Go!
One! Armani suits and run!
Two! Air Jordan shoes for you!
Three! Linen shirts for free!
Four! Cashmere sweaters out the door!
Five! Patagonias to survive!

Okay, then. Have a good night.
You too.

Got it. You stay right here.
Dispatch. Steve.
Yes this is Kathy Deutsch,
I'm the manager of a Lancaster's in Omaha.
And you guys just delivered something

- Really?
Your guy brought a giant wooden
crate onto my loading dock,
seems to be some kind of spraying system.
The invoice number is 1-9-6-8-AE35.
Okay, just, uh, give me a second
to catch up here.
Uh Uh, sprayer pump.
Yeah, I think I got it.
Omaha, right?
Yes, but I run a department store.
We don't sell anything like that.
Clearly this is a mistake you need to fix.
Oh, my God. I'm so sorry, ma'am.
My boss is gonna just
Ah, great.
Ricky's booked solid.
He's the driver.
Well, Ricky's just gonna have
to put the box back on the truck.
Uh, little problem with that.
Cargo space.
He's got a pickup at the airport in an hour.
It's a messy one, too.
It's, uh, nine hundred pounds
of Spanish mackerel.
Okay. I'm sorry, but that's not my problem.
No, I know. It's just Wow.
I mean, if he's late, that's gonna stink.
Pun intended.
Gene? Everything okay?
Yep. Oh, I'm just, uh, putting out fires.
It's a delivery issue.

- Okay.
I got it.
- You still there?
- Yes.
Look, I don't know what to
tell you about your fish issue,
it's just I can't have a huge box just
I-I understand.
It's just I mean, we both have people
we have to answer to, right?
Hey, I've got an idea.
Um, I've got an extra truck.
I could drive over there myself.
Great. How long till you get here?
Well, I'm just over in Urbandale.
Um, so, if I leave right now,
be there in four hours.
Four hours? No.
No, no, it's fine. I don't mind the drive.
I'll crank the tunes,
it'll be like old times.
I mean, no, I can't wait around that long.
We're closing for the night here.
Oh. Whew.
How's this?
If you promise me that
Ricky will get back here
by 10:00 a.m. tomorrow
I'll hold the box overnight.
You would do that?
Oh, my God. You're a lifesaver.
What's your name again?

What difference would it make?
Gene, buddy
No, I-I-I'm sure that you mean
a lot to, you know
To a lot of lots of people.
If I died tonight, my landlord
would pack up my stuff.
It'd take him three hours.
And Cinnabon would just hire a new manager.
Gene who?
I'd be gone. I'd be
a ghost.
Less than a ghost.
I'd be a a sha shadow.
I'd just be

Buongiorno, ladies!
How much you think we can get for 'em?
I don't know. Maybe five hundred each?
But shit, man.
Maybe I just keep 'em for myself.
I've been eyeing these Jordans.
You guys enjoying yourselves?
Well, hold onto that feeling.
'Cause this is it.
Yeah, we know.
Well, in case you forget
You transported stolen goods
with a value exceeding
five thousand dollars.
And the truck you used to do it
was rented in Council Bluffs,
across state lines.
You told us to rent the truck over there

Conspiracy to commit a federal crime
Whoa, whoa. "Conspiracy"? It was your idea.
Yeah. It's called
"mutually assured destruction."
So, if I go down, you go down.
Man, you don't havta threaten us.
We're all friends here.
I am not your friend.
And if you get greedy and you decide
to come back for more, don't.
Gene Takavic you never heard of him.
The Cottonwood Mall? You don't go there.
You see me coming, you cross
to the other side of the street.
Now I need you to say it: "we're done."
- Come on!
- Say it.
"We're. Done."
Say it.
We're done.

Hey, Gene, I see your car!
Well, that's a start.
Looks like your problem
is the master cylinder.
Look at you boys, hard at work.
Well, Marion, guys,
I got to get going.
I will take another look next time.
Wait a minute.
No, you can't go anywhere looking like that.
Come on inside and wash up.
Jeffie, don't vex me. Come on, Gene.
You can help me with the groceries.
- Huh, Gene?
- Sounds like a plan.
Nice of you to
help Jeffie with his car.
You might not know it, but
my boy's had some tough times.
He, uh He fell in with
a bad crowd back in Albuquerque.
Albuquerque, huh? Never been.
Lucky you.
But things are so much better
for Jeffie here.
Even more so now that he knows you.
You're a good influence, Gene.
Oh, where's my brain?
I keep forgetting to ask you about Nippy.
Oh, oh, right.
You're not gonna believe this,
but, uh, he was with a family
the whole time, just
Just a few blocks away.
Oh, well, that's wonderful!
Yeah. He's in great shape.
So, after all that

Oh, well
Here you go, Ma'am. Thanks.
And looky here.
For you, m'lady. Thank you.
Hey, Gene, aren't you taking lunch?
I get it.
You get over it, okay?
Please, believe me.
Before you know it,
you'll forget all about it.
