Banana Split

1 Previously on "Get Shorty" You found me.
Pretty easy once I figured out who you were.
So, you know I have a husband? Then why aren't you hanging up? This happens once.
One time and never again.
The Feds aren't after us.
They're after Amara.
They're after La Capotillo, and they're hoping to use my film project to make those arrests.
So, really, we do have leverage.
What if we just stay out of their way while they build their case? I can't be a fucking rat! Even if it is just looking the other way, I can't do it.
Which means you can't do it, either.
Full immunity, in writing, for myself and Louis Darnell, without having to testify.
I had a sit-down with Laurence Budd about "Wylderness" today.
The location that we need is not available until two years from now.
You want a month of full access to an active military base? Well, would you like the usual? You know what? Surprise me.
On Tuesday nights, my housemates and I go to this place called the Smokehouse.
Maybe I'll see you there sometime.
You bought product from another supplier.
You had to know it would end this way.

Can I ask what what you're doing here? - For the meeting.
- Right.

Which you turned down.
Not exactly.
[SCOFFS] I thought maybe when you told me to stay the fuck away, - that was a form of a rejection.
- No, no, no, no! Don't confuse my feelings about you personally with this job.
[CHUCKLES] You want me to work with you while also staying the fuck away from you? Look.
[CLEARS THROAT] Gladys knows I'm not writing anything.
Hmm.
If I'm a producer, she'll stop asking questions.
[SCOFFS] Yeah, she's asking a lot of questions.
Lu, I would love your help on this.
Even more so if you were just a bit less angry and hateful.
You know what you did.
Look how close we are, man.
And if this all works out if this fucking works out, Lu, Amara goes down, we walk free, just Just think about that future for a second.

Church banquet? Carb-loading teenagers.
So So, yes.
So, there's this cinematographer, Amir Khondji.
Fuckin' brilliant, this guy.
You should watch his stuff.
Uses nature a lot in his work, really captures the beauty, but also the danger of the world - Wait, wait.
- Yeah? Do you have something that's relevant to the case? Without the film, there is no case.
Amir, he's on the no-fly list.
Stuck in Iran.
Director won't work without him, so Pretty essential.
You said the army base was essential.
- It was.
- Okay.
Remember, you don't move in until we're done shooting, right? This investigation is going to take six months, probably longer.
- Sweet.
- Hold on! Hold on.

Amara has no reason to be here.
- She thinks she does.

Didn't come home? - Who's this? - Her roommate.
Who's this? Done.
What do you think of the tank scene? Oh, it's great.
There is no tank scene! It's so long.
[PHONE RINGING IN BACKGROUND] Can we just move past this? How can you work on a film if you don't know what it's about? Is there even gonna be a film? What does that mean? Did you hear what L.
A.
did to Amara's truck? We've already got financing.
If the producers want to shoot at each other, I say have at it.
Really? We should be thinking about what comes next, 'cause in six months' time, they're all gonna behind bars.
That's an interesting point, though, that you make about the script, in terms of the length.
You wanted these for David Oumou? - Our Oumou? - Yeah.
We made him an offer to play the lead role in the film.
- Huh.
- He hasn't responded.
You should drop these over.
- Me? - Yeah.
I'm the associate producer.
Shouldn't you get a P.
A.
to do something like Ah, but he loves you.
Ever since your words turned him into a star.
Hmm.
Yeah, you should drop these off, tell him that you're now working on "Wylderness," and see if you can get him on board.
Yeah? Can you tell Louis where to go? All right, cheers.
Thanks.
[PHONE RINGING] Hey.
- Hey.
- You speak with Laurence? What about? He was amazed you got the visa for Amir.
Oh.
Between that and the army base, it's really impressive.
Thanks.
Kind of to the point of bewildering.
[CHUCKLES] Just made a couple of calls.
To Homeland Security? Yeah.
Whoever.
Anyway Uh, we should go over this budget.
Sounds exhilarating.
We could make it fun.
Get takeout, a bottle of wine I'm afraid I-I can't.
I've got a thing.
A date? [SIGHS] Yes.
That's great.
Um Good.
Well Another time.
- Another time.
- Yeah.
Have fun.
[LAUGHS] This is premium stuff.
How'd you know I like biscuits? Ah, just, you know, remembered.
Is this an espresso machine? Yeah, can you believe it? One week, I'm making foot-longs at Subway, the next, I'm a gangster.
Bloody love America.
Hey, you deserve it, buddy.
Mm.
Huh? Yeah! Hey, can I have a cookie? Yeah, go for it.
Anyway Yum.
- About "Wylderness.
" - Yeah.
Um, I hate to disappoint, but my reps don't want me to do it.
Good script.
Lot of words.
Yeah, I love the script.
It's just, my agents want me on the superhero stuff.
You know, like like Cumberbatch.
Don't know what "Cumberbatch" is, but you have got to do things you love.
- You got milk? - Yeah, yeah, it's just in the fridge.
Yeah, I hear you on the love thing.
Mm-hmm.
I just can't go against my reps when they're breaking me.
How much do you pay them? 10%.
Of your money? Well, that's the game.
And you do all the work? No, they they do some work.
I think.
I mean, I don't know what my manager does, but he gets 10%, as well.
Holy shit.
Shouldn't they be asking what you want to do? [SOFT MUSIC PLAYING] So between you and me, I'm not exactly chuffed.
I'm getting offers.
I just need someone to negotiate.
Mmm, you got to try these.
These are ridiculous.
- [DOOR OPENS] - Sorry, that took a while.
- Yeah, what did you find out? - Why don't you sit down? No, no, no, no.
Tell me.
We don't know anything yet.
She didn't come home last night, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Yes, it does.
Yes, it does! That's what it means! Amara had her taken out! 'Cause of me! I got her killed.
You can't blame yourself.
If that's even what happened.
We don't know anything yet.
This girl she was the sweetest kid.
She didn't have anything to do with anything.
Except serving me a fuckin' banana.
Amara's gotta be stopped.
- We're working on that.
- Okay, whatever I got to do.
I don't care what it is.
Tell me, and I'm gonna do it, 'cause this has to stop now.
[DOOR CLOSES] [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] - Hello.

- Nice.
Brian.
What are you doing? Just got off a plane, came straight here.
I'm starving.
Ohh, come here, you.
These are weird leftovers.
Hey.
Uh, I'm Miles.
Hi, Miles.
Where are you from? Here and there.
Ireland by way of Nevada.
Unusual.
Am I right that in Ireland, it's rude to ask, "What do you do?" [CHUCKLES] Yeah, a bit.
Miles is a producer.
He did a film called "The Admiral's Mistress.
" Did you work on it? No, sadly.
- She is a brilliant designer.
- I believe that.
Well, congratulations on the film.
- Is it good? - Yeah.
You She hasn't seen it.
[LAUGHS] It's what I would call the the result of hard work and ruthless determination.
- Mm-hmm.
- Brian's a director.
Ah.
Anything I might have seen? "Scarface," "The Untouchables," "Carrie" You're not [CLEARS THROAT] You're Brian De fucking Palma.
Shit.
That's, uh I'm Miles.
I already told you my name a minute ago, so Didn't need to do that.
That's cool.
Big fan.
You know, there's a film I've been trying to get made for like 10 years, and, um Well, I could use a producer with ruthless determination.
Want to hear what it's about? Do I wa [CLEARS THROAT] Yes.
Would you like to start? You ask for meeting.
I'm sorry, I was told this was at your request.
Que? It's not important.
We're both here, and I assume we both want to resume a business relationship.
Is that correct? Maybe.
Well, would you like to begin with your terms, or should I lay out ours? Up to you.
You first.
Let's start with our original agreement.
That we would be the sole supplier via trucking routes from the West.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] [LAUGHS] I always wanted to check this place out.
Yo, Jacobo's down with the owner here.
Really? What's up, kid? How you doin'? Hey, these guys are with me.
What's happening? Shit - That's Amara's guys, right? - Shit.
- They your friends? - Not anymore.
Yeah, better not see them inside.
We got a sitdown going on, all right, man? Just cool it.
Yo! You gonna get us in? Sorry, man.
Hey.
Is that my shirt? What? That is my shirt.
I've been looking for that.
This is not yours.
Label say "7 Diamonds," right? I kicked you out, you went into my closet and took my shirt? Man, that's fucked up.
Well, you didn't kick me out.
I moved out.
- Yo, yo, yo.
- What's he saying? Nothing.
Some bullshit.
Let's go.
You got something to say? - What? [SPEAKING SPANISH] - Come on, come on.
Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey! Break it up! [INDISTINCT SHOUTING] [GUNSHOT, SCREAMING] [INDISTINCT SHOUTING] - [HORN HONKS] - Heffa! Heffa! [GRUNTS] Your friends are dead, man.
- They're not my friends.
- I don't know! We need a fucking ambulance, man.
- [GROANS] - Stay still, man, stay still! If a probationary period is genuinely on the table, - we opt for six months at 5%.
- [CELLPHONE RINGS] With all due respect, you're in no position to negotiate terms.
[WHISPERING] [CELLPHONES RINGING] There was a shooting at the club.
We agreed to a cease-fire.
Either this was planned, or you simply have no control over those in your employ.
What? We require you to leave Los Angeles, effective immediately.
Do you understand? I'm gonna miss these delightful conversations.
Tomorrow I get to tell Emma that her dad is kicking around an idea with the man who made "Scarface.
" Well, he did tell you that he's been working on it for years, so, it's Are you jealous of how close Brian De Palma and I have become? Is that what this is? You have fancy friends.
Yeah, I guess so.
I take it they all know your husband.
They do.
Can I ask an indelicate question? Are you trying to break up your marriage? Probably.
You'd like Greg, actually.
He's funny.
Successful [SIGHS] Can't tell if I'm falling out of love or I'm too fucked up to be happy.
I mean, my parents, they didn't even hide their affairs.
But if I'm imitating them, then how boring is that? - [CHUCKLES] - I got to go.
Hold on.
Thanks for tonight.
It was fun.
[UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING IN BACKGROUND] Congratulations on the film.
Oh, thanks, Brian.
You think I should send Emma to summer club? Well Summer conditioning is what you bring into winter.
That's what I've heard.
[SIGHS] Oh, I love your house.
[CHUCKLES] This isn't my house.
Sure it is.
You made it.
[CLATTERING] Thanks, everyone, for your time.
This meeting represents the last opportunity for both parties to work things out in the hopes of avoiding going before the bench.
Mr.
Daly, we'll start with you.
Yeah.
Um [CHUCKLES] My position's been the same from the start, really.
I just, um I believe Emma would benefit from having her father in her life.
If Katie gets full custody, I worry that she would restrict access to my daughter on a whim.
For any reason Miles is a criminal.
He works for a woman named Amara De Escalones.
She runs a Nevada part of the Capotillo Cartel.
Miles hurts people for a living.
He's been shot at least twice, that I know of.
Keeps unregistered guns in his home in case people come after him.
If he insists on going to court, I am willing to say all of this in front of a judge.
Katie.
Katie, have you lost your fucking mind? What are you doing? This is your decision, not mine.
Do you have any idea what will happen if you follow th Your decision.
Em? [DOOR CREAKS] [GASPS] No Ah! - Emily.
- Yeah.
Um Uh, don't use that bathroom.
Why? Can we talk? - Just waiting on the relay? - Yes, sir.
Got a call from Homeland Security.
The Iranian cinematographer is off the no-fly list.
Mm.
Didn't think you would grant that request, but you changed your mind.
The quality of the movie is irrelevant to the investigation.
Right.
But if it's being made anyway That was my thought.
- It's a good script.
- Very good.
The last bit at the end, with the girl She reaches the coast.
Very moving.
The cinematographer, Amir Khondji.
I don't know if you had a chance to look at his work Oh, it's beautiful.
His use of contrast.
I don't know what they call it, but he feels right for this project.
Totally agree.
Let's keep this between us.
No question.
And we're up.
Live feed from in her kitchen.
So, where is fucking Peewee? He tell me what happened, or I come after him.
[TELEVISION PLAYING IN BACKGROUND] [KNOCKING ON DOOR] Lu? I assume you still have a key.
[LOCK CLICKS] - Hey, man.
- You've actually stopped by.
Should I take that as a good sign? [SIGHS] Oumou is over the moon about the script.
I think he'll do it.
Ah! There it is! Why didn't you say that on the phone? There's details we need to go over.
Ah, man, that's fucking that's great! I'll tell April to get in touch with his reps.
- We should celebrate! - I'm his reps now.
I have ginger ale.
Seriously.
I'm David Oumou's manager.
You're what? Yeah, we were We were talking over cookies which were fucking great and David was saying that, uh, he can't stand his agent, or his manager.
Job doesn't sound that hard.
So I said I'd do it.
Be his manager.
[SIGHS] Okay, this is a little awkward.
Um I know how bad you guys want him for the movie.
It's a $30 million film So, I'm guessing you could cough up a million bucks for Dave.
Oh, and I need an executive-producer credit.
So, uh Should we talk about it, or? Gonna say Yago was there? I think so.
Fucking idiotas.
[SIGHS] Why they keep fucking up over [GLASS SHATTERS, MACHINE-GUN FIRE] [TIRES SCREECH, ENGINE REVS IN DISTANCE] [INDISTINCT SHOUTING] - You all right? - Fuck.
Fucking people.
Is everyone all right? - Yeah.
- I'll check outside.
Tell Inez to clean all this up, huh? Now.
Before Ricky gets home.
And somebody fix those windows.
Do it! How soon can you move in? A drive-by shooting.
We can't stand back and watch while they drop bodies.
No, of course not.
Just, we thought we'd have six more months.
- We have a choice? - No, sir.
Uh, we will get warrants and coordinate a raid in 48 hours.
Good.
Whole new crew.
People they don't know.
Why the fuck would we pay that? Because he is worth it.
I I asked you to go over there and offer a deal on our behalf, and you switched sides! You said I should think about my future.
If I had known that your future consisted of fucking me up, I would've said nothing.
[LAUGHS] You are one to talk.
- Okay.
- Oh, yeah.
- Here we go.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- You made me into a fucking rat! You know what? Thanks for stopping by, Lu.
Don't let the door hit you in the arse.
I leave now, offer's off the table.
And I will take it up with his actual manager, whose number I have upstairs.
She doesn't work for him anymore.
- We'll see about that.
- Yeah.
Yeah, we will.
Fuckin' snitch.
Hey! Okay.
You don't want to be part of this deal with the Feds? Fine.
I'll let them know you'd rather do the time.
You do that.
You'd rather spend 15 years upstate while your child grows up without you and your "wife," if that's what we're fucking calling her - Hey.
- You think that you have the marital foundation that she'll hold out? That she'll spend the prime of her youth waiting for you? Or will another man end up raising your kid?
