Bail Money

1 Today the bickering stops, the era of excuses is over, the law-abiding citizens of our country have made their voices heard.
Never again should Washington put politics and party above law and order.
From this day forward, let us put partisanship behind us, and let us go forward Democrats, Republicans and independents, law enforcement, community leaders Erik.
I never want to see you here! OK? Do you hear me? to roll back this awful I'm not doing this with my grandson.
and reduce crime in our country.
We have the tools now.
Let us get about the business of using them.
One of the reasons that I sought this office is to get this Let's go! because if the American people do not feel safe on their streets I ran on a very simple slogan: Make America Great Again.
If you're going to have drugs pouring across the border, if you're going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection, in areas where we don't have a barrier, then it is very hard to make America great again.
But we've done a fantastic job.
But we haven't been given the equipment.
We haven't been given the Who arrests an old man for having a beer? You broke a window, Pop? - Only protesters and 13-year olds do that.
- Mm-hm.
Yes, well, maybe it's because I'm trying to make a point.
Funny guy.
Well, your point's gonna cost us four grand, Abuelo.
So unless you got it a stack of cash in the chicken coop somewhere, I don't know where we're gonna get this money.
No, no, no, the chickens would tear it up for their nests.
Call the güero.

He will lend us the money.
What are you talking about? Chris can't even pay rent.
What, you think he has a 4K stacked away in a pair of his kitchen Crocs or some shit? No, I'm gonna call - the bail bonds, and we'll find a - Are you crazy? I'm not giving another cent to one of those bail bonds.
And you know why.
It's better than owing Chris.
He'll charge us interest and fucking truffle oil and caviar.
I already asked him.
He has some money saved.
Call him.
- When'd you ask him for money? - Yesterday.
The money for Rob.
The rent.
We made a deal.

I need my orthopedic pillows! Get me out of here! You shouldn't be here in the first place.
Doesn't make any sense.
Don't tell anyone I'm in jail.
Not even Ana.
If someone finds out, I'll be the damn gossip of the whole town.
What's up, y'all? So, my mom went all Soraya Montenegro on me and threw away my paints, so I'm in need of restock ASAP.

Why didn't you come to me sooner? Because I'm a grown-ass man.
I should be able to handle this shit on my own.
Erik, stop.
God, I love Pops too, you know.
Look, I got you always.
OK? Hey, did you get the money? Is Pop OK? Yup, we got it handled.

Those chocolates better be made of gold.
Are those gold tacos? No.
Acapulco gold.
That'll do.
- Get in here.
- Yes! I saw Chris' bank account.
Why am I paying rent and he's not? Because he has a dream.
Because he's going to be a grand chef and I'm going to help him get there.
Help him? What about me? What about you? Everything I've done for you all these years counts for nothing? He should be helping you - with the shop.
- Ah.
It doesn't matter.
That damn landlord is gonna evict us.
He's not.
We have a lease! Pop! When have you given up so easily? I'm not giving up.
I'm not giving up.
I can't.
If I gave up on the shop, what else would you have? What do you mean? I have a lot.
A lot? Shit.
Welcome home, Abuelo.
I heard you made friends with El Chapo.
Yeah, lots of friends.
Go to bed.
That's it? That was a weird hug.
Love you.
Nobody likes you Nobody cares Nobody wants you Nobody cares To extend a greeting aid Connecting lands Life is just a jaded game to them They won't give it a chance But you know when I know That the galaxies are all around us And life will flow on as long as the grass grows and the water runs And while I'm here on earth I'll rejoice in this world Cause Freedom is free
