To Take Over The World

1 Van Varenberg! Van Varenberg! Van Varenberg.
Are you listening to me, JC? You could've gotten us all killed.
If your cover had been blown It wasn't.
Okay, I'm sorry.
I was kind of stupid.
Um, you're right.
But I took care of it.
Yeah.
By detonating an entire city block.
Subtle.
You're lucky the blast didn't destroy the tracker.
My explosion was too big.
That's why you punish me with N-Word Jim.
Hmm? Okay.
First of all, don't call him that; it's offensive.
What? Jim? The other part.
Also, his name is Victor.
And I wasn't punishing you.
He offered me a kindness.
When I really needed one.
The can you put the tracker in ended up in a garage just outside of town.
Turns out it's a local street racing spot, which means our guys are probably selling HK there.
My plan is to go check it out tonight, find the boss, - and follow him up the ladder.
- Great.
I'll come.
No.
You're way too high-profile for that kind of thing.
I'll go and report back.
And what about the microchip I found? - This? - Looks important.
Why would a drug dealer have a computer chip? Huh? What year do you think it is? Look at this thing, it's the size of my phone.
It's outdated.
Okay.
Just lay low for a few days, okay? But, uh, Vanessa? Vanessa? Go.
He's not ready.
You need to pull him.
Well, you know I can't do that.
He's gonna get someone killed.
He's gonna get himself killed.
I talked Brown down.
There's no one else.
- There's me.
- Oh.
Vanessa.
You know that's not how this thing works.
I'm ready.
Please.
You have your role.
You think JC's just gonna let you into the field? Get himself killed deader than dead trying to protect you.
I don't need protection.
I know you don't, dear.
But I can't change the man.
You know that better than anyone.
I do.
I'd rather have lobster.

I'm I'm getting the hang of it.
Wait, stop it.
JC.
Feel that? What's the plan? What's the plan? Someone here is moving the HK.
We'll find out who it is, set up a buy.
Classic Johnson.
In the Cartel, the biggest players had the shiniest toys.
It's happening.
This is a private area.
Go party somewhere else.
Hey.
Hey! Look at me.
Look at me.
Look at me.
Do I look like I come to party? Look at me.
Go! Go, please! Shit! This is my world.
I got this.
- JC - Hey! I want to buy drugs.
Oh yeah? Yeah.
What you in the market for, old man? I don't know, maybe some heroin cut with Ketamine? Kids call it HK Hong Kong.
Yeah.
20,000 Lev.
10,000 Euro.
I'm looking to get a much larger purchase.
How much larger? 100 cans.
Yeah.
A deal like that would have to through the big boss.
If that's what it takes, it's okay.
How come I've never seen you before? Oh, believe me you've seen me before.
Doesn't feel right.
Get your fix somewhere else, grandpa.
Hey.
I'll race you for it.
You'll race me for it! Yeah.
So let me get this straight: you want to race me in that piece of shit car.
That's right.
If you win, I I sell you HK.
Sure, okay.
- Good.
- But what's in it for me? You can use me to do your evil bidding, like in Universal Soldier, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Or you can keep me in your barn, and use me as your mechanic.
Like Nowhere to Run.
Also starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Or you can hunt me for sport, like in Hard Target.
Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Right? Like I said, you can do whatever you want.
I do like the sound of that last one.
You're on! Johnson, this idea is terrible.
I've raced before.
With Mario Lopez's Lotus.
Very fast.
You're the worst driver I've ever seen.
And this isn't a regular race, this is a drift race.
A "drift race"? A drift race.
What's a drift, Luis? A drift.
A drift race.
It doesn't matter.
Okay.
Listen.
Johnson.
Abort this.
Please.
You're going to lose.
What are you doing? I learned a trick, long time ago.
When one sense is gone, the others heightened.
I don't think that applies to vision when driving.
Oh, fuck! I like it, old man! You got balls! This just got a whole lot worse.
We need to abort.
Oh, everything will be fine, Luis.
Trust me.
Fuck.
