Get Shorty (2017) s02e06 Episode Script

Unlimited (Limited)

1 - Previously on "Get Shorty" - Did you show them the books? - Yeah.
- There it is! Money laundering, you What if we tell L.
that we can clean $30 million of their money? You risk nothing, and you make money off them.
I'm making another movie.
It needs to be privately financed.
How close are you with L.
? You want me to make an introduction? We require an additional 5%.
- This a joke? - It is not.
So, these investors, they're they're friends of Amara's? Associates.
Like her but just on a bigger level? I wanted to update you on "Wylderness".
Yeah, I'm past that.
- Shit.
What were you burning? - Old photos.
It's pretty.
It's a witch's mirror.
Does that make you a witch? Looks like Deborah Schaffer's kids.
Deborah Schaffer the actress? Yeah.
This is the divorce papers? There's a part about custody on page two.
You gonna take her away from me.
When we first saw Rick, he was frightened.
I told him we would use all our resources to make sure he wouldn't get hurt.
I'm going to make a deal, so if I were you, I'd make sure he's still breathing when the feds come.
Help me.
Hey! Hey! I need help! [SIREN WAILS] [VEHICLE APPROACHES] [POLICE RADIO CHATTER] Gonna help you, all right? They put the bag on my head, and then then wrapped duct tape around my neck.
Pills alone would have killed me, even without the bag.
You said they made a hole in the bag? Yeah.
I don't know how long they waited.
Got light-headed, and I passed out.
You're okay now.
How's the shoulder? It's starting to hurt again.
- Another click? - Mm, two.
Give it a minute.
The pain will subside.
Is that pudding? What flavor is that? Uh ooh, butterscotch.
- That's a good one.
- Oh, yeah.
I think my blood sugar's low.
- Could you do that for me? - Oh.
So, what's going to happen now? You're going to arrest everyone, or just Miles and Louis? I mean, they must have told Amara by now, right, hmm? The jig's up.
It's all over.
We were discussing that.
[MUFFLED] I'm gonna miss Amara.
Is that crazy? Just we been through a lot.
Even the creepy guys that she works with, hmm.
We can't arrest anyone yet.
Good news is, opportunities have arisen in the case.
- Very exciting.
- Wait.
I-I-I'm talking Miles and Louis.
They know about the investigation.
They know everything.
They won't share that information.
They know to keep it to themselves.
Well Did you make a deal with them? They tried to kill me.
You made a fucking deal? We all agree you have been exemplary, and we won't make you wear a wire any longer.
You're off the hook.
What am I supposed to do now? Supposed to hide out here? I can't go back to Amara's house.
We prepared an alibi for your last 12 hours, hospital charts explaining your injury, discharge papers.
We'll go over all this.
And we got your car repaired.
You can go back to Amara's tonight.
They They put a bag over my head.
[CLICKS TONGUE] You can opt for witness protection.
Won't be a problem getting you approved, but I know you didn't want to do that.
[MUTTERS] - And sweetheart, I agree.
- That's not a life.
Your best option is to pick up where you left off and put this investigation out of your mind.
How does that sound? I [GROANS] [CELLPHONE RINGS] This a booty call? Yeah, what if it is? You know you can just text me.
Well, this is more romantic.
I guess.
[SIGHS] I got some work stuff I got to deal with.
Then I'll come over.
I'll put on my good underwear.
[DOOR OPENS] Come on, man.
What are you doing? You can't even carry those yourself.
Lou, they had a folder on us the size of an encyclopedia, way more than Rick told us, but I got immunity for the both of us and we don't have to testify.
- What did you give them? - Nothing.
Just, you know[SIGHS] They put their own accountants on the movie and tracked the money.
That's it.
I had to.
The thought of Emma getting on a bus to come and see me when I'm locked up.
Oh, that's your justification, your kid? 'Cause, you know, I got a kid on the way.
All the more reason.
You have no idea how this is going to turn out! And meanwhile, I'm a fucking rat.
No, no.
No-Nobody was wearing a wire or giving information.
We're just making our movie and then staying out of their way.
You never even had to speak to them! You think that anyone is going to believe that you made a deal with the feds and I didn't know about it?! I got to work with Amara tonight, so if you'll excuse me.
So come and work on the movie with me, Lou.
You can be associate producer, and then when when the filming is done, Amara is gone.
Imagine that! You can do whatever you want.
You don't even know the movie's going.
- The movie is going! - Well, it better, because that is your only leverage with the feds, so I hope you have fun working with Rick after what we did to him.
[GROANS] - Would you let me help with that? - Nah, I got it.
- Come on.
Don't be stupid.
- No, I don't want your help.
- Just let me help with it.
- Don't want your help.
Let go! You know what? Enough with your help! You put my name on the script, dragged me out to L.
, you turned federal-fucking-witness.
- Nobody is turning - You made a deal with the feds! And whatever story you're telling yourself to make that okay, it's bullshit.
In my family, no matter how bad things get, we don't flip.
So do us a favor.
Just stay the fuck away from me.
[DOOR CLOSES] What I've been saying all along it's this pain that just won't go away.
And I thought it was the rotator cuff.
I-I didn't want to tell ya about it.
[GROANING] I don't want you worrying.
The doctor he wanted an ultrasound.
And then he starts telling me about in-patient procedures.
Oh? They saying what's wrong? Benign growth in the muscle.
That's what the biopsy said.
It's all here in the discharge papers.
- Hmm.
- See that picture? Subscapularis.
- [SIGHS] - And your face? [SIGHS] I tried to get out of bed before the anesthesia wore off.
- Stupid.
- Poor Ricky.
I think, you know a good night's sleep.
- Mm-hmm.
- I think I'm going to feel fine.
Tomorrow, we start work.
- Work? - Hmm.
Movie Miles brought me.
It's our next project.
Okay, but you don't need me for that.
I do.
You know this business.
You help me, like last time.
I thought I could find something for you and me to work on, just the two of us.
[SIGHS] After this one.
I'm not sure that I want to work with Miles again.
Just so soon.
Maybe in a while.
I like this movie.
Why you don't want to do it? [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING] [CRIES] Ricky, what's wrong? [VOICE BREAKING] I'm just I'm sorry.
[SNIFFLING] I'm overwhelmed, that's all.
I I thought it was over.
Now Now here I am.
I'm back in our bed.
I'm sorry, sorry.
- I'm just - Shhhh.
No, I'm on a lot of pain meds.
- Amara is here now.
- I know.
I take good care of you.
All right.
I know you will.
I know you will.
- [SOBS] - Oh, Ricky, oh.
I'm all right.
I'm all right.
[VOICE BREAKING] I'm all right.
[SOBS] I'm okay.
It's all right.
- Don't worry.
- Sleep.
I'm going to go to sleep.
You need anything, Emma Jean get it.
And everything's going to be better.
Escalones? - Yeah.
Yeah, guy down the hallway told me to come.
Have a seat.
This place is really different than I pictured, like really different.
[CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY] In order to transfer the necessary funds into a dedicated account, we will be filing articles of organization for a new corporation.
Need your signature there and there.
- My signature? - Mm-hmm.
[SIGHS] What did I just sign? - Mr.
- Yeah, hi.
- Who are you? - Thank you for coming in.
They'll do a better job of explaining, but since you were the one who brought us this project, my colleagues and I felt that you should be the one to manage it.
So, like, what does that mean? You'll make sure our money is looked after, that we get our full return.
Ba-Basically, you're in charge.
How does that sound? Good.
I won't let you down.
- Lovely to meet you.
- Yeah, you, too.
You'll be listed as the registered agent.
All tax and legal documents will go through you.
And that box at the top if you would write the corporation name.
What is it? Your company, you choose the name of the LLC.
Me? Oh, shit.
[LAUGHS] Okay.
Uh what's "LLC"? Limited liability corporation.
Why has it got to be limited? - [CAR DOORS CLOSE] - How long is this going to take? Hope not too long.
I got plans tonight.
You, too? Been a long day.
We handle whatever you throw at us.
Any kind of weight, quality.
Up front? Yes, ma'am.
See, we like to create repeat business.
Make everyone happy.
That's just how we do.
How you get it to Nevada? Got all kind of ways.
Let us worry about that, all right? No smoke in the car.
Aw, shit.
I'm sorry.
That's why it smells good in here.
[CHUCKLES] My car is smoky as fuck cigarettes and blunts.
This is a lady's car.
What's that mean? "Lady's car"? Just smells good.
If I buy from you instead of L.
, they won't be happy.
No, they won't.
You're not worried? The people we run with next to them, L.
ain't shit.
You feel me? Let me think.
I call you.
We'll be waiting.
Got something to say? I just don't think it's a good idea.
With them, we make more money.
It's not worth the trouble.
Maybe not.
So we continue work with L.
? For now.
And then he says, "Oh, Lulu.
We make another movie.
You can be associate producer.
" I know what that fucking means.
There's no "we".
It's all about Miles.
Everything is about Miles.
And what about what I want, you know? - I'm sorry.
- [CHUCKLES] It's cool.
It I love talking about your business partner after sex.
[LAUGHS] Anyway, that's why I got to move out.
You know, I'm going to find my own place and just figure out what's next.
It's getting late.
You might as well sleep over.
- Ooh.
Do you think my truck is safe parked on the street? Like always.
Yeah, but I got all my stuff in it.
Maybe I should bring it in.
You already moved out? You're not moving in with me?! No.
I'll get a place tomorrow.
Taking it slow is not moving in.
Believe me, I understand that.
I'm not Bad enough that I'm pregnant, and now we're fucking married.
We're on the same page! Move your truck to indoor parking and bring up one suitcase.
Thank you.
Oh, I got some stuff in boxes.
They're pretty valuable.
One suitcase.
One box.
Okay? That's it.
It's Miles.
We met a few weeks ago.
I crashed my car, you set a fire in a toilet.
Quite a fun weekend.
You found me.
It's pretty easy, once I figured out who you were.
Right, 'cause I didn't leave you my number.
So that, um, crystal ceremony that you did with the chakras and the breathing and whatnot.
Not the kind of thing I usually sign up for, but, um it affected me.
- Still there? - Yep.
I had kind of a breakthrough or clarity or whatever you call it, and I just I thought that you should know that, so I looked you up, and I figured maybe we should meet up again.
Your turn.
You looked me up, so you know I have a husband? Yes, and you're a costume designer.
I love costumes.
Very underrated part of the film-production business.
[CHUCKLES] What I'm saying is is a friendship with you doesn't really fit in my life right now.
But, um, if things were different I get it.
Who has time for friendships? So, um since we're both so busy, I guess there's no real need for us to ever talk again.
I can't think of one.
Then why aren't you hanging up? [CHUCKLES] Because I didn't want to be rude.
Consider it.
Take care.
You, too.
I didn't realize how late it was.
I let you sleep in.
You take it easy today.
Work from home.
- For the pain.
- Oh, thanks.
I should probably just call Gladys, let her know I'm not coming in.
That's really something.
Our first movie together, and now we do another one.
- Where do you want it? - I show you.
[DOORBELL RINGS] Sorry I'm late.
You got something? [INDISTINCT CONVERSATION] - What's wrong? - [STAMMERS] I'm okay.
I think I'm I'm going to head into the office after all.
But your shoulder? A couple of Ibuprofen and this is going to be okay.
Just yeah.
Maybe I'll, uh, take a sponge bath, and then I'll head out.
Come on in.
Laurence, this is Miles.
- Pleasure.
- No, pleasure's mine.
You know, I tried for five years to get this project financed.
April tells me you did it in two days.
- Ah, well.
Book sells itself.
- Does it, though? Well, if you say so, then I guess it does.
I hope you know how grateful I am because I love this story.
Oh, I'm right there with you.
You know, uh, I find stories are like children.
You know what, actually, stories are nothing like children.
When I started that sentence, I thought I was on to something.
[LAUGHS] Well, it worked for me.
So, your investors formed an LLC and readied the investment, which is great.
So, if all goes well, we can be doing this in two years tops.
Two years? Well, why not? It's just I was hoping that we could get started like now.
How long did "The Revenant" take to come together? Ooh, uh 14 years, okay? Half our script takes place on a U.
Army base.
Now, the good news is, I was able to secure permission to shoot at Fort Herlong.
You're familiar with It's spectacular.
Got full access to the air field, military equipment, vehicles, but not for at least 18 months.
Okay, so it's the army base that's the right.
- What about a different location? - You know what? Every time I try to cut corners, I end up regretting it.
- Why even do it, then? - Do you? Trust me, you see Fort Herlong, you'll be glad you waited - Hey, Amanda.
- Hi.
- How you doing? - Good.
This is Gerard and Lyle.
Nice to meet you.
Hold on one second.
Uh, so keep in touch.
We'll meet up again, say, July, and we'll see where we're at.
Guys? Have a seat.
Thank you.
So, what did you think of the dailies, huh? I can tell, he's crushing it, is he not? You told me if I got the money, it was a done deal.
That wasn't a "no", exactly.
Hell, it wasn't a "yes"! April, I made certain assurances to people.
If this movie doesn't happen and soon I'll make some calls, see if we can figure out an alternative.
He was pretty clear.
No army base, no movie.
So we find a different army base or a visual-effects team willing to work for peanuts or.
- [SIGHS] - something.
Look, this is the first project I have brought to this company.
I'm not going to let it go after one meeting.
Just give me a few hours, then let's get together, go through out options.
I'll let you know when.
She's out, but she'll be back.
- Just hang out.
- Message sounded urgent.
Any idea when she'll be back? - Nope.
- Perfect.
- [YELLS] - Shh.
I'm not going to hurt you.
This This hurts, right now.
What you're doing right now.
[MUFFLED SHOUTING] Keep your voice down, and I'll let you go.
Okay? [BREATHING HEAVILY] You don't look so bad.
How's the shoulder? Feels like I got shot, okay? I I barely slept because all I could think of was that fucking bag on my head! Easy.
I thought we were friends, huh?! Then Then that happened.
I-I'm greatly affected by this, okay? I feel very betrayed.
You feel betrayed? You, me, and Lulu we're in this together.
One of us fucks up, we all go down, and it won't be pills in a bag over our head, it will be a fuck of a lot uglier.
Do you understand? Where are you going? Work.
[DOOR CLOSES] [CHATTER] There's a bright Golden haze In the meadow There's a bright Golden haze In the meadow The corn is as high As an elephant's eye And it looks like it's climbing Clear up to the sky Well, I say, oh What a beautiful mornin' Yeah, yes, what a wonderful day Okay.
I've got a beautiful feeling What happened? Oh.
Oh, I got shot, yeah.
You know how that is.
It's Right.
So, how about I give you my favorite? Chocolate with sprinkles.
Okay, let's do this.
[CHATTER] Wow, you got a whole technique.
[CHUCKLES] You're good.
If I tried that, yeah, it would be chaos.
There would be sprinkles, and I'd start a fire or something.
[LAUGHS] Wow, this is great.
This I've had a rough couple days, and I came, and I saw this truck, and and you.
Yeah, this is just what I needed.
I'm here all week.
Thank you.
Ed said you wanted Sit.
You got something you want to tell me? What do you mean? You bring me a movie.
- Yeah.
- Don't say nothing about Yago.
[SIGHS] Well.
Turns out Yago is working with L.
I know.
You think I don't know? So Why does he work on my movie? I don't think he does, at least not directly.
He say he does.
He tell you that? - Told Ross.
- Did he? Said his company runs the movie Yago Unlimited Limited.
It's called what? - Yago Unlimited - No, I heard you.
- Why his company make my movie? - [SCOFFS] Well, this is the first I'm hearing about it.
I mean, I knew he was involved in some capacity.
I am executive producer.
And that doesn't change.
is just an investor.
I don't know what their arrangement is with Yago exactly, and they can call the company whatever they like.
It doesn't mean that he's in charge.
You are.
At least, more than him.
I realize things are tense between you and L.
right now, but we all are in business together.
We all want to make a great film.
That it? Guess so.
She not going to do anything rash? I'll just let myself out, then.
Step outside so we can talk.
Sorry, I'm working.
- [MICROWAVE BEEPS] - Ooh! So, basically, they recognize when someone has a feel for business, and they looked at me and they were like, "This dude right here is a resource".
We need someone to oversee this shit, so [KNOCK ON DOOR] [RAP MUSIC PLAYING] Tia.
Been a while.
You live here? Ross ain't tell ya? He told me.
Shit is only temporary until I get my own place.
A place in L.
? Yeah.
'Cause you work for L.
That what you want to talk to me about? I mean, I didn't have a choice.
You kicked me out.
I had to make a living.
This a living? L.
came to me.
With my movie.
Your movie? They're the ones paying for it, right? You heard they put me in charge? This where you sleeping, on the couch? Tia, I work for L.
now, okay? You can't just come up in here, talk to me like this.
You got to show respect.
[LAUGHS] Ross invite me.
This not your place.
Why you think that concha put you in charge? To fuck with me, that's why.
[MUSIC CONTINUES] You got anything else to tell me while I'm here? To my face? [SPITS, GROANS] Tastes like shit.
No more product from L.
I am done.
Call Wardell.
Say I'm ready to do business.
- You sure? - L.
fuck with me.
Now I fuck with them.
So, if we can't get Fort Herlong, there's Concord Naval Weapon Station, decommissioned in '02.
No air field.
And no active military vehicles.
What about CGI? We could hire a Chinese company, but honestly, we don't have the budget for that.
[SIGHS] I mean, even if we could live with one of these, there's no way Laurence comes along.
No, probably not.
[PAPERS SLAM] I should go read the scripts I was supposed to read this afternoon, or Laurence will flip his wig [CHUCKLES] literally.
Did you not notice? Laurence wears a wig? It's a medical condition.
He doesn't have a hair on his body.
Glues on eyebrows.
Fuck off.
His whole body, even on his ooh.
I'm not going to give up on this movie.
Neither should you.
Worst-case scenario we make the film in two years.
That's not so bad.
Laurence can get Fort Herlong in two years.
How's he pulling that off? It's about who you know, right? Laurence knows everyone.
[KNOCK ON DOOR] You're back late.
How did the apartment search go? We're off to a real good start.
I don't know where you're looking, but I got some friends who really like North Hollywood.
I'm also looking around here.
Korea Town? Which part? Uh, north Korea Town.
- You didn't look.
- I did.
Bought a newspaper.
You're looking in a newspaper for an apartment? I meant what I said yesterday.
I haven't had a roommate since my 20s.
I'm not doing that again.
I meant to look.
I just I got really distracted with work stuff.
Are you writing something new? - Yes.
- No laptop? Notebook is in the truck.
[CHUCKLES] What's the new thing about? Well, I'm just getting into it arranging the cards, you know, in my head.
I'm ordering take-out.
[TIRES SCREECH] [ENGINE SHUTS OFF] Didn't think we'd be hearing from you so soon.
Yeah, I just got some news.
Happy to pass it along.
Well, I had a sit-down with Laurence Budd about "Wylderness" today he could not be more excited.
One little hitch the location that we need is not available until two years from now.
So Plan is still the same, only the timing's not what we'd hoped.
When you spoke to Agent Dillard, didn't you say the project had a green light? Which it does, soon as we secure this location.
What's the location? Um[SNAPS FINGERS] Herlong Army Base.
What do you need, exactly? Pretty much full access for three, maybe four weeks.
You want a month of full access to an active military base? What was your name again? Stevenson.
- Can I call you Steve? - No.
Here's the thing.
What is the point in having friends in high places if they can't help you out once in a while? Or we wait until next year.
Up to you.
I'll check with the office.
You just let me know, Steve.
[ENGINE TURNS OVER] What about dessert? They do that green-tea sundae.
Or we can stop for some frozen yogurt.
What's going on? [SIGHS] I started talking with lawyers, and, um, I'm planning to ask for full custody.
I wanted to ask your feelings about that.
You want me to side with you? That's That's why we're here.
No, first, I I thought it would be fun to have a girls' night.
Mom, every night's girls' night now.
I'm not agreeing to this.
You'll still be able to see your dad.
Oh, but not sleep over? Your father is a great guy.
But remember what Helen said about trusting people who've let you down.
Helen also said I get to decide what's best for my emotional health.
And I think what's best is that I get to live with Dad half the time.
[SIGHS] [CELLPHONE RINGS] Hello? I know we said we'd never talk again.
We said that, didn't we? It's just I have some queries about some costume stuff.
No, you don't.
You don't think our chats are a good idea? Oh, I'd go beyond that.
- Would you? - Yeah.
I'd say talking to you is exactly what I don't need.
Oh, I totally agree, but I do have some of your stuff.
I've been feeling bad about that.
What I've been told is a very powerful crystal Uh-huh.
That was a gift.
There's also a photograph of you with a tiger.
I'm pretty sure I burned that.
Uh, there's a bit left.
We should probably arrange to meet up so I can get these precious items back to you sometime we're both free.
Oh, but we're so busy.
That is a problem.
So maybe I should just give them to you now.
Yeah, but I'm at my studio, and it's way out of the way.
Oh, it's no trouble since I'm only 50 feet away.
What? Gray Buick down the street.
Other way.
Glad you're smiling.
I was worried you might phone the police, tell them you have a stalker.
Where's my stuff? Agh.
You know what? I just realized.
I fucking forgot them at home.
[SIGHS] Okay, this happens once.
One time, never again.
Put your seat back.
[SIGHS] What's up, dawg? Could use some help with a job.
[CHUCKLES] - Oh, shit.
- Need you to be a lookout.
Let us know when this motherfucker walks out.
This dude can't miss him.
Yeah? Yeah, okay.
Let's do it.
All right.
[ENGINE REVS] [WATER BUBBLING] Don't like it? No, no.
It's great.
You don't look happy.
Well, my shoulder's throbbing.
How about you? Feeling good? You know my nephew.
He go and work for someone else.
- I thought you fired him.
- So? Yeah, I get it.
You're very close.
You're much closer than me and son ever were.
Hey, you're going to work it out.
You're a good man, Ricky.
Other men I've been with they don't take care of me.
You know, with my ex-wives Mm-hmm? it just always got to a point where we stopped listening to each other.
It would be different with us, don't you think? - What? - If we got married.
That's a thought.
[LAUGHS] It's fun to think about those things.
- Mm-hmm.
- Future things.
- Mm-hmm.
- Isn't it? Yeah.
Yeah, oh, gosh.
You know my my shoulder's really throbbing.
- Oh.
- I think it might be the heat.
I'm going to get out right now.
You stay, stay.
Enjoy yourself.
I just got to get out now.
[DOOR OPENS] [CAR ALARM CHIRPS] [GUNSHOTS] - [TIRES SCREECH] - Get in the car! [TIRES SQUEAL] We lit him up! Who was he? Runs 15th Street.
Yeah? What did he do? Tried to sell to your auntie, that's what he did.
But hold on.
Does my tia know? She will soon.
[GEARSHIFT CLICKS] [ENGINE SHUTS OFF] This is usually the part where you get out.
Have you been talking to Mom? Not on a daily basis, no.
You know she got a lawyer? She's gonna fight you for custody.
Yeah, I know.
I thought that was probably where we were headed.
Do you have a lawyer? Dad, you need one if you're going to fight this.
Is that what you want? I barely see you already.
If I'm not going to sleep over - And the bed's crap anyway.
- Dad.
I don't want you worrying about it, okay? Me and your mother we'll figure things out.
Or me and you could drive to Mexico right now.
I have a quiz in French.
- Oh! Shoot.
- Yeah.
Forgot about that.
Stupid school.
Go on, then.
Go and learn something.
[SEATBELT CLICKS] [CAR DOOR CLOSES] [CELLPHONE RINGS] Hello? Got some news about your request.
Let's hear it, then.
- You're back.
- Yeah, yeah.
The doctor told me I need more potassium in my diet, so Hmm.
Well, congratulations on a hundred episodes.
- That's a big deal.
- Oh, oh.
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, thanks.
Don't tell anyone, but I'm one of those freaks that doesn't own a TV.
Well, listen.
If we're sharing secrets, I don't work for "Compton Justice".
Oh, you're a freeloader, a banana freeloader.
- Don't cut me off, please.
- I'm going to tell my manager.
Who, the top banana? [CHUCKLES] [SNICKERS] That's funny.
Funny and handsome.
I'm the total package.
Yeah, well, would you like the usual? Well, you know what? Surprise me.
Go crazy.
- I'm going to go crazy.
- Yeah, yeah.
On Tuesday nights, my housemates and I go to this place called the Smokehouse.
You ever want to eat something besides bananas Maybe I'll see you there sometime.
Maybe you will.
- Aah, back already.
- Couldn't stay away.
I'll get back to you.
All right.
Please sit.
So, Miles got us Fort Herlong.
Starting immediately.
- Really? - Yeah, full access.
Are you sure? Because the way the Army works, you usually need a lot of signatures before Yeah, I got a signed consent form here from Colonel Travis.
He's the base commander over at Yes, I know, I know who he is.
So if that's the only thing holding us back, we can move forward now, right? Well, perhaps I wasn't clear yesterday.
About? Well, it's not simply the issue with Fort Herlong.
I also have two studio films in active production.
I have another six in development.
I've got a Broadway transfer from the West End, which needs a marquee star in order to recoup, so the earliest I could possibly take on a new project is two years.
I thought you said if we had the base No, no, no.
I'm really sorry I wasn't clear.
It's just [SIGHS] My investor was was banking on making a movie You know, I do not want to disappoint Mr.
de Escalones, but I'm sure he's familiar with the concept of opportunity cost.
If I were to take even a few minutes of my attention from any of my active projects, it comes at a cost.
They're waiting for you.
So what I said yesterday still stands.
I'm willing to sit down in a few months.
Budd, the thing is the money won't be there in a few months.
The investors won't wait.
It's got to be now or never.
Well, I'm not saying it's never, but I'm afraid now just does not work for me.
- I'm sorry.
- I'll talk to him.
It'll Miles, he told us where he stands.
Miles! Let go.
You'll get me fired.
- No, I won't.
- Please.
- Miles! - Mr.
Budd? I've got a dinner, and I've already kept my ride waiting.
I'll be brief.
Gonna tell you why you can fit this project in.
All right.
'Cause I'm going to be the man running it.
- Hmm.
- The base is just the beginning.
My last film, I turned a $2 million private investment into a $30 million studio picture that didn't just recoup, it turned a profit.
I get things done.
Yes, I've heard.
Well, I heard about you, too.
That you got a rate you didn't like on a film, so you threatened the what do you call them The president of the MPAA.
And I-I didn't threaten him physically.
See, you and me we'll do whatever it takes to make shit happen.
Chase people through hallways? Exactly.
Holy shit! This is your ride? - Where's dinner? - Monterey.
So, what do you want from me, Miles? I want a guarantee that this film is happening.
Now, not two years from now.
All right.
Really? If you're willing to take the reins, I'm not going to stop you.
It's easier to say yes now than to have you storm my office every day.
How was your day? This was your plan the whole time.
What's that? You were never going to find your own place.
I made some calls.
I I said one bag, one box! You've already moved in.
Well, I needed my shower stuff, and and my warm socks Are you even writing anything?! [SIGHS] I'm feeling kind of blocked lately.
Why don't you call your agent and have them set you up with a re-write? At least then you would have some income! Honestly I'm not sure I'm into the whole writing thing.
I think I'm just going to branch out, find something new.
So, as of now, you have no career, no place to live.
We're married, and I'm pregnant with your child.
I'm going to get a glass of wine.
Oh, you can't drink.
You watch me.
- Hello? - I want to talk to Lila.
And who may I ask is calling? - She'll know.
- Hold, please.
Hello? The fuck do you think you're doing? You bought product from another supplier.
You had to know it would end this way.
What now? You're cutting me off? On the contrary.
But we are doubling your tax.
Double? To de-incentivize any future bargain-hunting.
I don't pay 10%.
You'll let me know if you change your mind.
The beast in me Is caged by frail and fragile bars Restless by day and by night Rants and rages at the stars God help the beast in me The beast in me Has had to learn to live with pain And how to shelter from the rain And in the twinkling of an eye Might have to be restrained God help the beast in me Sometimes, it tries to kid me That it's just a teddy bear Or even somehow manage To vanish in the air Then that is when I must beware Of the beast in me That everybody knows They've seen him out dressed in my clothes Patently unclear If it's New York or New Year God help The beast in me The beast in me
