You know what? Let's just nip this right in the bud.
Here you go, pal.
Thanks.
I think it's "nip this in the butt.
" I don't think it is.
I think you're - that is, you've been misinformed.
- What's a bud? - A plant? - Yeah.
You're gonna nip something in the plant? What, are you gonna nip it in the butt? What does that mean? [SNAPS FINGERS.]
That's a nip? Like a kid who's getting out of control.
"I told you again to stop.
Oh, you're gonna keep I told you [SNAPS FINGERS.]
I'm gonna nip that in the butt.
" - We can agree to disagree.
- Yeah.
No doubt.
You do look familiar.

I mean, we were both in law enforcement, so, perhaps our paths crossed.
I think I know what it is.

Water under the bridge.

[SIGHS.]
Okay.
Shoes on, so let's get Perfect.
[SNORING.]
DISPATCH: Car 34, please report.
Car 34, no activity.
Copy that.
I think the rain has scared the business away, and the girls have called it a night.
Pretty boring.
Well, my grandpa always said that the best way to get rid of boredom is to split it with a friend.
Yeah, that'd be great, except my friend here is, uh, fast asleep.
Moses is sleeping? [LAUGHS.]
That guy's hilarious.
Let me ask you, does he have his pillow? Yeah.
Yeah, he brought his own pillow.
Who brings their own pillow to work? What kind of message does that send? Hey, he's a character, that's for sure.
All right, well, I'm always here if you want to chew the fat.
Well, actually, uh, while I got you there, do you have any information on the, uh, the Doris Silva case? Doris Silva.
Uh, extradited prisoner, murdered earlier this month.
Yeah.
Is there any update on that? Anything you can tell me, like, uh, where the detectives are looking or ? Sorry, friend.
I can't share anything on the, uh, Silva case.
I'm sorry.
- I know that's tough.
- Oh, man, you have no idea.
I used to be a detective.
You know, I'm trying to climb my way back up, so if you have any kind of information, it could really help me.
Please, man.
Please.
If you could give me anything at all, I would just owe you big-time.
Oh, man, I [SIGHS.]
I know shouldn't, but all right.
All right.
Let me see what I can do.
Thank you, man.
Thank you so much.
I would really appreciate that.
I really appreciate it.
Thanks, man.
I'll talk to you soon.
Thank you.
- [SNORING.]
- Sorry, man.
Was I talking too loud? Just let me know if I'm interrupting your Just doing some police work.
[LOCK BUZZES.]
You know, sometimes I think maybe I wanted to get caught.
Then other times, I think - no, I didn't.
- What is this? What transaction are we even doing here? I need your help.
Give me the name, and you won't have to see me anymore.
- What, are you begging? - I'm not gonna beg.
Okay? Are you gonna give me the name or not? 'Cause I don't like a beggar, and if you beg, it's not gonna work.
It's weakness.
But if you were my friend, I don't know.
I do things for my friends.
I like friendship.
So, if you were my friend, maybe I'd help, but if you're not my friend, I don't know, but I got to tell you, I'm a pretty good friend to have.
- Ain't that right, Phil? - You're my best friend.
Not best friends.
He said you were his best friend.
He's not my best friend.
Phil? - To me, you are.
- To me, you're not, though.
I've told you that.
And stop saying that, man.
You make me look like a fucking weirdo.
Understood.
He's definitely not my best friend.
Hey, sounds like you guys need to work this out.
He hangs near my cell a lot, but I can't leave.
- Uh-huh.
- So I hear a lot of his stuff, but I don't give him my stuff.
- All right.
- So it's a one-sided friendship.
- Ah.
- If I was on the outside and I'm not afraid to say this to him, 'cause I have said it to him he wouldn't be my friend.
But, Phil, would he still be your best friend? Inside or out, you're my best friend.
So, inside, he's in my group of friends.
- Mm-hmm.
- Outside A real zero.
I wouldn't want anything to do with him.
- Yeah.
Got it.
- He's not my kind of guy.
Gotcha.
But friendship's an important thing.
'Cause you can give friendship to somebody, and they can do whatever they want with it.
And that's what this is about it's about friendship to me.
Do you mind turning around? Copy.
I don't want to be friends with him, - but I want to be friends with you.
- Here's the thing.
You're my kind of cop.
You got shit done.
- Yeah.
- You're the kind of cop that I want having my back out there.
And right now, you have an opportunity - to have my back, okay? - Go ahead.
You give me this name, your life gets better, my life gets better, our friendship gets stronger.
The kind of friendship we would become pen pals? I would love nothing more than to drop you a note every once in a while.
Hell, I'll keep you updated on how the case is going.
Just so you feel - a little bit of that juice.
- Fuck the case.
- I don't want the case.
- Fuck the case, then.
I'll tell you about stuff I'm up to.
- Dates and stuff? - Yeah, sure.
I mean, I'm just getting over a thing right now, so I'm kind of hibernating.
Tell me the story, but would you mind it in letter form? - Oh, I'll write it to you.
- Like, "Dear " No, like, do Yeah.
[SIGHS.]
Dear Josh: Hey, it's me, Dustin.
That's one of my best friends.
I want to just tell you a quick story, like I mentioned when I saw you in prison, about the love that I just lost.
Ah, shit, I've been waiting to hear about this.
I met her on a case, chasing El Chappie.
I ended up having to infiltrate a I'm not gonna lie the letter's getting boring.
Well, anyhow, man - I'm into this, okay? - Great.
And I'm getting close to wanting to help you out, but here's what I'm afraid of.
- Yeah.
- I'm afraid you're telling me what I want to hear, but you don't mean it.
Doesn't it seem like that? You can turn around, man.
I didn't realize you were still facing the corner.
Thank you, sir.
Doesn't it kind of feel that way, Phil? It does feel like that.
- Shut the fuck up, Phil.
- Here's what I feel like.
Feels like it's prom night and you're my date.
And I'm excited about the date, and you've given me a lot of promises.
So I got myself ready.
I got my nails did.
I got my hair perfect.
I got a dress.
I spent money, son.
And, finally, for the first time, I'm comfortable showing my body.
- [CHUCKLES.]
- But I'm afraid you're gonna stand me up.
Is that what's gonna happen? Are you gonna stand me up on prom night? Let's cut the shit.
We both know, if you help me, I can snap my fingers, get you transferred out of here into a nice minimum-security prison.
There's one that has a badminton court.
Hmm [CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]
My answer is no.
[SIGHS.]
CLINT: Please, please, that's so not necessary.
We have great news, babies.
The data has come back to us on the first rollout of the BopBots, and we are very, very encouraged.
Mission accomplished! Guys, come on.
Come on, please.
However every up has a down.
And that's just not me talking.
That's Sir Isaac Newton, regarded by many as the father of physics; a lifelong virgin and predictor of the 2060 apocalypse.
And yes, the hat was a tribute to him.
I-I wasn't gonna ask about the hat.
- You said there was a down? - Yes, indeed.
With the BopBots being such an unmitigated success, we will, unfortunately, have to let a few of you go.
- EMPLOYEES: What? - Yeah, but don't worry.
You'll be fairly compensated.
How many is a few? - Exactly half.
- [EMPLOYEES MURMURING.]
- Oh, my God! - What did I tell you all? They're replacing us.
This list has been e-mailed to all of you.
If your name is not on the list, your contract here has expired.
[EMPLOYEES GROANING.]
JANICE: Quick, Fats, am I on the list? - Am I on the list? Hurry up.
- Okay, wait, I'm looking.
I'm looking.
- I'm looking.
- Look faster.
Yeah, you're on there.
- You're safe.
- [SIGHS.]
- But I'm fired.
- Oh.
- Them's the breaks, kiddo.
- I'm fired? That doesn't make any sense.
I'm the one who welcomed BopBot.
I'm the one in favor of new technology.
Yeah, well, like my mom always told me, if you're gonna fuck a snake, don't cry when you get bit on the mouse pouch.
You got bit.
You got bit bad.
CLINT: Apologies, everyone.
Reverse that.
If your name is on the list, your employment here is over.
Sorry, guys.
Human error which is exactly why we need the BopBots.
Are you fucking kidding me? Please contact your BopBot for a reference, Janice.
Adiós.
I don't know, Chief.
We're pretty outnumbered.
- Are you sure you want to go in? - [POWER WINDOW WHIRRING.]
Yes? You're saying yes? Are you sure? It's a suicide mission.
Are you 100% positive? You're a crazy motherfucker, aren't you? - Okay.
Let's do it.
- [SNORING.]
Ready to go? On the count of three.
One You don't have to nod every time I say something.
Please stop nodding.
I'm trying to focus.
[SIGHING.]
: Fuck me.
What am I doing? Then you get into the politics of: what days which group gets to run the TV.
The inner politics beyond fascinating.
Who decides on what? Oh, I'm sorry.
Are you bored? - [YAWNING.]
Yeah, no.
- Is this story boring to you? Then why don't you ask me what I want, so I can give it to you so we can move on with our fucking day? 'Cause I don't like this, and you're not doing anything for the conversation.
I got to tell all the stories.
Is there something you want? Well, isn't that what this is about? Isn't that the game? I do this, you do that, then finally you say, "What is it that you want?" And I tell you what I want, and then you give it to me and I give you the name? 'Cause there is something I want.
Great.
All right, see? Now we're talking.
- Yeah.
- What do we got? I miss, uh, the feeling of, uh, pine needles under my feet.
- [SIGHS.]
- I miss the feeling of rubbing my face against a newborn kitten's whiskers.
Especially when they're just days old.
You know, I also miss the sounds of dogs barking.
Phil, would you mind? [BARKING.]
[CHUCKLES.]
Thanks.
Now I don't miss that anymore.
Okay.
I've listened to you drone on.
Now you're gonna listen to me.
You're up for parole in eight months.
I'm either gonna go to that parole board and I'm gonna whisper sweet nothings in their ear, or I'm gonna whisper sour, toxic nothings in their ear, and you're gonna stay here a lot longer than you think.
[MOCK WHIMPERING.]
[LAUGHS.]
You trying to scare me into telling you the name so I can leave jail? I'm just telling you what's up.
Let me tell you what's up I fucking love jail.
I could do 20 more years standing on my head, and not for the reasons you think.
Yes, I've made friends, and yes, the food is pretty good, but that's not the reason.
The reason is, is 'cause I've learned skills in here.
- Oh, really? - Oh, really.
- Like what? - Like close-up magic.
- Oh, no.
- Oh, yeah.
I know magic.
[SIGHS.]
I don't have time for this.
I'll be hon Oh.
Wow.
Hmm.
- Whew.
- Do me a favor.
Pick a card.
Seven of diamonds.
[CHUCKLES.]
Hey.
That was it.
Yeah.
But when you consider how much time you have on your hands, it's actually not that impressive.
- Pick another one.
- Listen to me.
I want that name, and I want that name right now.
It's getting a little tense, isn't it? - Phil, how about a tune? - [PHIL CLEARS THROAT.]
Ave Maria DISPATCH: Car 34, come in.
Car 34.
No activity.
- Uh, any news? - Uh, bad news, I'm afraid.
I really wanted to help, but the case is tied up with the Las Hormigas Cartel; it's all top secret.
The boss would kill me if I shared any details.
I'm sorry, Cullen.
I really wanted to help.
Yeah, copy that.
Anyway, I appreciate you trying to help me out.
Uh, I didn't catch your name, by the way.
You can call me Bob.
Bob? You're not Reynolds's little brother, are you? You can call me Bob.
Yeah, what's your, what's your last name, though? You can call me Bob.
Bob, you're not a robot are you? Ha, ha.
That's crazy.
I'm Bob.
Can you hear me okay? Yeah, I can hear you.
I'm asking you: Are you a robot? Ha, ha.
That's crazy.
I'm Bob.
Can you hear me okay? JANICE: Do you really think these sentient tubes of bullshit are gonna improve anything? They already have.
The numbers don't lie.
No, but jerk-offs like you do.
Simon, grab me an extra large vanilla ChapStick.
The more you control the BopBots, the more programmed it is to fuck us over.
You know what? I'll be pretty annoyed if I've been talking all night to a robot.
- Are you a robot? - DISPATCH: No way.
Okay, if you're not, just say the words, "I am not a robot.
" Ha, ha.
That's crazy.
I'm Bob.
Can you hear me okay? Yes, I can hear you perfectly.
Now just repeat after me, "I am not a robot.
" You and I should get food together sometime.
Do you enjoy pizza? JANICE: You think you're such a wizard man, so smart putting all these people out of work.
It's progress, Janice.
We got to keep moving forward.
But I know what the endgame is.
Hmm? All it's about is a bunch of guys sitting around wanting to fuck robots.
And the problem is? Admit to me that you're a robot.
DISPATCH: You are sounding upset.
Is there anything I can do to help? Janice, please leave.
You're fired.
Let's get security up here.
You can't fire me because I quit.
But everybody just saw you get fired, so nah.
Oh, okay, I'm fired.
- I better take this with me.
- No.
- Janice, please.
- It's gonna be my new keychain.
- [GRUNTING.]
- Janice.
No, don't.
JANICE: That's you at night.
Please, I beg you.
- Everybody watching? - Janice, no.
Don't you dare.
Yeah, I'm fucking upset.
I've been talking to a fucking robot all night.
You're worse than this fucking guy.
You're overreacting, Janice.
Just, like, chill out.
CLINT: No, no, no, no, Janice, no! No! [FEEDBACK, STATIC.]
Good morning.
[SIGHS.]
[CLINT CRYING.]
Oh.
I didn't realize I Ken, grab me another one, would you? JANICE: Oh, you motherfucker.
Fuck all of you! I am out of here! And, hey, you all know he fucked a tortoise, right? You fucked a tortoise.
[LAUGHS.]
You fucked it.
Wow, what time is it? Uh, it's about 45 minutes before the end of our shift.
So congratulations, you've managed to sleep the entire shift.
- Thanks.
- You're welcome.
How do you do it, man? - I bring a pillow.
- No, I mean, how do you not care? I And I don't mean that as a judgement, I mean, I want to know how do you do your job and just not care so much? You just catch the fish you need.
What is that supposed to mean? Well, you're asking me why I'm sleeping, why I'm not still out there catching the fish.
Oh, okay, is this a fable and in the fable we're fishermen? It's a parable, and, yeah, we're fishermen.
- Uh-huh.
That wasn't clear.
- What are the fish to you? Is it success? Is it money? Yeah, I like those fish, sure.
For me, it's just, right now, - in my in my brain, they're fish.
- Okay.
- So? - But what would I do with all those fish? You say, I can sell the fish and make some money and buy a big boat, and then, you know, sail out to deeper waters, colder waters, where, you know, it gets dangerous.
- Mm.
- And with all those fish, you could sell 'em - for lots and lots of money.
- Right.
And then hire a crew, just do all the catching for you.
But then what am I gonna do? Well, I guess you're a very successful fisherman, so you would, uh, sit back, relax, enjoy your fishing success.
Yeah.
Yeah.
- [SIGHS.]
- I see.
That's You're relaxing now.
It's a very circular parable.
Come on, man.
Just try it out.
- Oh, no.
- It's the cool side.
- Yeah, that's - Just a few minutes.
You know you want to.
I don't really want to.
Just try.
You Just try.
