The Rubicon

1 This will catch on.
Those two always together.
Not when they rolled up on me.
Just Lenny.
Nah, that can't be right.
[GUNSHOT] LEON: Don't tell me.
I was there.
It's All destroyed.
The the camp.
Our pipeline.
I have other suppliers we can use for now.
[CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS] TEDDY: The Colombians? That's Jess, right? And him, you know, Latin Freddie Mercury.
You have the balls to come in here after running to daddy? You want me to run.
Ramiro te quiere muerto.
We have to talk about what's gonna happen with the business.
[BRAKES SQUEAL] [ENGINE STOPS] Thanks for the lift, man, for letting me crash.
Anytime, my brother.
You give Leon my best.
[ZIPS BAG] If you need to talk, you know I'm here for you, okay? [LAUGHS] All right, man.
Thanks.
All right.
Also you got any more of that crack stuff, I'd definitely be interested.
I got you.
Rad! [ENGINE STARTS] Oh, don't forget.
Up there to the left.
Freeway.
All right? - I remember.
- Don't get lost again! [DOOR CREAKS CLOSED] Still going good, huh? It's better than good, nephew.
I don't know why you sleepin' over that white boy house like we ain't got a perfectly good couch.
Think you just answered your own question.
You was out late last night.
You damn right I was.
And look, we got to re-up on this powder.
No problem.
You got any idea where we gon' cook up the next batch? I know you ain't just look at my kitchen like you plan to use.
We gonna rent a place.
Somewhere we can store it and cook the product.
All right, Louie.
Imma put you on that.
Go see Walter.
He'll hook it up.
Boy, we gotta talk turkey.
I feel like the product's priced right.
I ain't talkin' 'bout the product.
Now when you first came to me, you said we was gonna split this down the middle, 50/50.
Then what you do? Huh? You turn me away.
I've done all the heavy lifting, huh? I'm not giving half away now.
You ain't givin' shit.
Aight? Now I'm earnin' it.
You need a partner, not them little knuckleheads you be runnin' around with.
You need somebody that know the game, got some cred.
Set your little narrow ass straight.
It's my connect, my product, my process.
I've already got Lee and Kev to take care of.
[BILLS RUSTLING] [SIGHS] I can give y'all 10%.
- Shit, you trippin'.
- Woman.
40%.
20 and even that's pushin' it.
[BILLS RUSTLING] [LAUGHS] - 25%, we straight.
- Deal.
Yeah! That's my family right there! Hey? Move that.
I'm-a take a shit.
Y'all gon' keep counting that.
[BEADS RUSTLE] [DOOR OPENS, CLOSES] Mm.
Ray-Ray thinkin' on it.
Should know soon.
Either way, you're gon' take care of me, right? I got you.
What about you? You all right? You juggling a lot of shit.
You doin' okay? Mm.
[SIGHS] I will make this go away.
Just like I said that I would.
But I do need one thing from you to make it happen.
What? Need you to leave town for a little while.
How long? Just a month.
Maybe two at the most.
No.
That's not possible.
Look, you saw what she did with the flyers of Kristin.
Right? This is gonna be so much worse.
She's gonna go to the cops if she hasn't already.
And then she's gonna go to the newspapers and the evening news and your face is gonna be everywhere.
In two days, I'm making a deal with the Colombians.
And if I disappear, so will they.
You'll have no one to fly the shipment.
No, I can find another pilot.
And you'll still deal with the Colombians.
You just won't be doing it from here.
Or I take care of the girl and nothing changes.
[UTENSIL CLATTERS] Look [SIGHS] If she goes missing, especially now, after finding this, that's gonna look terrible.
They'll think she ran away just like her sister.
No, it is too big of a risk.
We are not there yet.
And what if you're wrong, hmm? And you can't stop her? I can control this.
I can.
I-I I'll ramp up surveillance on her apartment.
I'll put a full tap on her phone.
I will use all of the company resources to discredit her And steer her off the path.
I just need you to please help me do my job.
Okay.
[FOOTSTEPS DEPART] Might have something for you, Ray.
I have something to share with you folks, okay? Come inside.
I'm gonna have one of my guys call you.
Nothing heavy.
Take a look.
Here.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] Remember your cousin Antonio from San Diego? Yeah, I remember his breath stank something awful.
Graduated from San Diego State.
Business and accounting.
You're doing this now? You said you were fine.
And just because your father has passed away does not mean business stops.
It's not stopping.
I'm handling the books.
When I'm ready to take on someone new, I'll let you know.
You're gonna let me know? [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS IN SPANISH] MAN: Señora.
Señora.
[SIGHS] [EXHALES] [KISS] [PATS SHOULDER] Mm.
[CRIES] [SNIFFLES] [CONTINUES CRYING] [DOORS CREAKING OPEN] [DOORS CLOSE] [KEYS JINGLE] Mom? Whatchu doin' home? I could ask you the same question.
Where you been sleepin'? Jerome's? Volpe's.
I just came home to shower, grab some clothes.
You all right? [SCOFFS] Listen, Mom, I'm sorry I lied to you.
It was disrespectful, and I should've treated you better than that.
Talk to me.
Tulf fired me.
What? W-why? I called his ass out.
Told him to put me on them Westside properties like he'd been promisin'.
Said things had changed, that he needed to sell it.
[CHUCKLES] That I'd have other opportunities.
I don't know exactly what happened then.
I just know I saw red, and I went after him and [SIGHS] When it was done, I was bein' tossed out.
Fuck Tulfowitz.
- [SCOFFS] - You hear me? And all the shit he put you through.
Fuck him.
This is a good thing.
- This is a good thing? - Mm-hmm.
That was my job, Franklin.
You'll get another job.
One that deserves you.
Where? Doin' what? I killed myself trying to make that man happy, and now I just threw it all away.
Tulf ain't gonna give me no references.
There's bills and then the mortgage.
You ain't gonna worry about any of that anymore, Mom.
Huh? Unh-unh.
[MONEY THUDS] I don't want your reefer money.
[FOOTSTEPS DEPART] [CLOSES DRAWER] [ZIPS BAG] No, you can, uh, leave the robe at home this time, just, uh, keep an eye on things while I'm in there.
Yeah, okay.

[STATIC] [VOICES SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY ON TV] [TOOL WHIRRING IN DISTANCE] [WHIRRING CONTINUES] [WHIRRING CONTINUES] Alejandro.
Get out of here, Teddy.
No, I can't do that.
Of course you can.
It's the easiest thing in the world.
Just turn around, walk out, close the door behind you.
[EXHALES SHARPLY] - [STRAINED VOICE] This isn't right.
- Isn't right? [CHUCKLES] This is a war, Teddy.
We do what is required of us, which is exactly what I did that night at the house, and unfortunately what you're incapable of doing.
So I'm doing this for both of us.
This is my gift to you.
All you have to do is accept it.
[BREATHES UNEVENLY] You're doing great, Teddy.
- [EXHALES SHARPLY] - You're a hero.
See you soon, okay? [BREATHES UNEVENLY] [WHIRRING RESUMES] [WHIRRING CONTINUES] [GUNSHOT, THUD] [BREATHING HEAVILY] [TV CONTINUES PLAYING INDISTINCTLY] [EXHALES DEEPLY] Fucking shit.
What's up with these crates here? What crates? These crates.
Motherfucker! - Yuda - YUDA: Huh? Did you know Franklin saved Yuda's life? - Do you know that? - No.
It's true.
Yeah.
He's a good boy.
[LAUGHS] So every time he come here, I offer him a drink, some snort, some pink.
He always say no.
Shit, I'm good with any one of those.
I didn't offer it to you, did I? [BOTTLE CLATTERS] Fuck did you bring them here for? Told you.
Business is ramping up.
Means we're gonna buy more.
Pay upfront.
That also means might not always be me here making the runs.
Oh, yes, it will.
It's you I like, you I trust.
You put on the vest.
[LAUGHS] Hey, you know, Avi, seeing as that we gonna be, you know, buying in bulk, paying upfront, how 'bout we do a little bit better on that price? What? I know you started the boy of at 12.
You fronting the shit, he don't know no better.
Now this shit is real.
How 'bout you shave a little off that price? Oh.
Maybe.
- [CHUCKLING] Yeah.
- Yeah, maybe.
Or maybe I'll shave the eyebrows off your face and tell you to go suck on a donkey's dick.
Uh, Avi, 12 is fine, all right? Fuck is this? I let you bring your friends into my house, and you fucking strong arm me? Hey, look, nobody trying to strong arm nobody.
Hell you're not.
And just so you know who's in fucking charge here, it's gonna be 13 a key.
- Come on, Avi.
- Keep on talkin'.
It'll be 14.
Or you can go someplace else.
You greedy motherfuckas.
Now get the fuck out.
[BAG ZIPS] [KISSES] I asked y'all to be cool.
Hey, man, it ain't our fault the dude is crazy, cuz.
Hey, man, he more than crazy.
Motherfucker's racist.
It doesn't matter.
Unless y'all know where I can get pure product at those prices, Avi's our guy.
I know where you get the product at a better price and you ain't gotta deal with no crazy ass Jew.
Look, he getting it from somewhere, and it's much less than 12 a key.
Now you have somebody stake out his little crib, see who comes and goes.
Get right to the source.
Can't just sit outside his house and wait.
Be arrested in five minutes in this neighborhood.
You right.
We can't.
But you know someone who can.

[INHALES SHARPLY] [EXHALES DEEPLY] [SIREN WAILING IN DISTANCE] Ramiro's bringing someone in to learn the books.
[LAUGHS] You laugh 'cause you know you were right.
Mm.
Why are you still here? Because I have faith in you, chola.
Yeah, seriously.
We can run this business together.
What if I told you I don't believe you? or paranoid.
[INHALES SHARPLY] [EXHALES DEEPLY] That if I go through with this, I'm not doing it for you.
I know.
[SIGHS] And I have to be there.
So they won't think I had anything to do with it.

Think I got everything set up.

- No, man.
You're gonna be a liability, and you know it.
I mean, fuck that shit, cuz.
Look, man, for real.
Sit this one out.
I got it.
Hey, Franklin.
When you had that gun on Carvel, what were you thinkin' about? What stopped you? I don't know.
A lot of shit, I guess.
Well, when you dealing with Ray-Ray and Lenny, I want you to think about taking care of your people, your folk.
Your moms, your uncle, Louie, Melody.
I even want you to think about me bleeding on that fucking ground and you pull that trigger.
You hear me? You eat them or they eat you, that's all.
We gonna be good, man.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] [FAST-PACED CLASSICAL PIANO PIECE PLAYING] [KNOCK ON DOOR] Teddy.
[POUNDING ON DOOR] [BUTTON CLICKS, MUSIC STOPS] [DOOR CREAKS] H-hey.
[CLEARS THROAT] You don't answer your phone? [DOOR CREAKS CLOSED] [HORNS HONKING IN DISTANCE] - [SIGHS] - Julia called.
Said she hadn't heard from you in a couple of days and was worried there might be something wrong.
[SIGHS] Things, um, um Get dressed, Teddy.
Okay.
I didn't know you were a classical fan.
Who was that? Chopin? James I don't think, I'm the guy for this.
I went to bat for you, Teddy.
I'm sorry.
Want my advice? You need to learn to let things go.
I mean, come on, this is just like Tehran all over again.
Sometimes shit just goes wrong in our business.
I could've prevented Tehran.
I could've.
I should've pulled my agent out.
I knew he was in trouble, and nobody would listen.
What does it matter? It happened.
It wasn't your fault.
But you came back to D.
C.
wound way too tight, and you took a samurai sword into the country coordinator's office.
It was a Civil War saber.
I don't understand I though that, you'll be relieve that I'm out of this.
The director's very proud of you.
You know, money and supplies are flowing south.
Contra fighters are back on the offensive.
This thing is starting to work just like you knew it would.
He's extremely pleased.
So is the President.
You're full of shit.
He asked us to, uh, pass on his appreciation to the responsible parties.
When I was 8, my dad took me to the White House where he was being honored for his service, and we had lunch, and I met Kennedy, and That was the proudest moment of his whole life.
I mean, it's in my file.
I know you read it.
Look, I am not manipulating you, Teddy.
I am just passing on the, uh, sentiment.
This is working.
Okay, but the question is is it gonna keep working because of you, or do I need to find somebody else? [GLASS CLATTERS] [DOOR CREAKS] Suey! [LAUGHS] Hey, this place dope, man.
I mean, a few couches, some lava lamps, a big screen TV.
Hey, we could a waterbed in this motherfucka, too.
This ain't no motherfucking bachelor pad.
It's a goddamn cook house.
Just calm your ass down.

Okay.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] You're here to make a deal with him, right? Alejandro was already bringing cocaine into the United States.
He just needed DEA assistance to get it across the border.
You too were gonna be bargaining chips.
He was setting you up.
I know that the same way I know everything about you two.
I know that you like being in the United States.
And I know that the Orejuelas trust you and leave you alone as long as the money keeps rolling in.
And I can ensure that that continues to happen.
Keep the DEA and local law enforcement off your ass, provide you with intel about your competitors and security at certain border points.
What do we have to do for you? Well, you have to provide me with absolutely pure cocaine at prices that are going to make your balls hurt.
Who the fuck are you, man? Doesn't matter who I am.
Only matters who I represent.
And who's that? The United States government.
