Jingle Bell Rock

1 Her name is Soledad.
We're gonna get married.
She was tending bar at some shithole in El Paso called El Hueco.
- I want to work.
- Yeah.
And I've wasted enough time.
I have a Cessna Caravan waiting in a hangar at Fairfax Airport.
All I need is someone to fly her.
[TENSE MUSIC] You know I fucking love you, right? I'm glad you're here.
I'm supposed to be back by morning.
Or at least call Jerome.
Your days of slaving for that Jheri curl motherfucker are over.
- Hell nah.
- Okay, sh Cissy.
Drunk, high, sober, I don't give a damn.
Nobody wants you here.
- [SIRENS WHOOP] - Get them all out of here now! [INDISTINCT YELLING] I ain't movin'! I ain't - [BLOWS LANDING] - [DISTORTED WHOOSH] My customers don't pay in large bills.
You ever hear of a bank? What you lookin' for? We got what you need, man What! [GROANS] - [GRUNTS] - [GASPS] We got to send a message, right? By killing a bunch of old folks and fuckin' kids, my nigger? We can't let these motherfuckin' wetbacks kill our people and walk around like ain't shit happened.
So you gonna go and kill the first Mexican you see? That's what you do, man.
I always knew you wasn't built for that shit, Saint.
[SMACK LANDS] [GUN COCKS] [CAR DOOR OPENS, SHUTS] Hey.
What's up? And a merry Christmas to you.
[SIRENS WAILING DISTANTLY] Okay.
So, uh, not like I needed a reminder, but here.
I got something for ya.
[DISTANT DOGS BARKING] Jason Peters? Nice to meet you.
And you're 47 years old.
[TRAIN HORN BLARES DISTANTLY] It's a joke.
So, uh, show up at that address.
the one on the card there.
Tuesday.
Please don't show up an hour early to that one.
- Right.
- And you got a suit? Something nice to wear? - I can get one.
- All right.
Don't cheap out on the shoes.
Hey, where'd you even get these? Gotta know who to ask.
I'll see ya.
[CAR DOOR SHUTS] Jason motherfuckin' Peters? [CAR STARTS] [WOMAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY OVER PA] [MACHINE BEEPING SLOWLY] [INDISTINCT CHATTER] Hi.
You got to be Cissy.
I'm Nia.
We spoke on the phone? I'm an advocate for the homeless at the Edgewood Shelter.
What happened? Cops were clearing an empty lot in an effort to make our city pretty in time for the Olympics.
Alton didn't want to leave.
- When? - Six days ago.
And he's been here ever since? They wanted to release him today.
But he has two broken ribs, cuts that need cleaning, stitches.
Send him back out there and he'll die of infection.
How'd you get my number? You're his emergency contact at the VA.
He had his vet ID on him.
He's through the worst of the detox.
But if he gets put back on the street chances are he runs right back to the bottle.
Chances are good of that no matter where he goes.
[EXHALES] Look, I don't know y'all's situation, but he needs a safe place right now.
You don't know what you're asking me.
That's true.
I don't.
[SOUL MUSIC PLAYING ON RADIO] - [SNORING] - [KEY TURNING IN LOCK] [SOUL MUSIC CONTINUES] Hey, Kev, sorry about the other day.
You gotta do what you gotta do, right? What's up y'all? - What, Santa come early? - God, I hope it's sandwiches.
Them ain't no sandwiches.
You know we can't move the product we already got, right? And I cut my thumb.
It was gross.
Blood everywhere.
We ain't got to move it all.
It's just how much I gotta buy, all right? So hire more cookers.
- And more dealers.
- We've been through this.
And you still ain't listening.
Look, we can't risk giving away The recipe, the recipe.
Franklin.
My hair stank and my feet hurt.
- I'm sorry.
- If you want this rocked up, wake up the motherfucker snoring on the couch.
[SIGHS] I can't do this alone.
Hm.
- Hey, I'm out too.
- What? Gonna go see my girl.
Who I could see in here if you would allow her to cook.
You want some good news? - Sure.
- [CHUCKLES] Pretty good, right? [LAUGHS] That's real good.
Damn.
It was easy actually.
The Valley is thirsty, amigo.
You want three this time? [LAUGHS] Damn whoa, oh.
- BOTH: [LAUGHING] - Yeah.
It's good, man.
Same deal.
60/40.
Rad, man.
Thank you.
Look, I know of a party going on right now.
This will sell like hotcakes.
No, you gotta help me cook this shit, Rob.
No, trust me, brother.
You want me at this party.
I'll catch you later, okay? Whoo.
[SNORING] [DOOR OPENS, CLOSES] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Fuck.
[MOTORCYCLE REVVING] [CAR HORN HONKING] [ENGINE STARTING] [INDISTINCT CHATTER] [TENSE MUSIC] Did you get lost? Sorry.
- Ready? - Uh-huh.
Let's do it.
Hey, Amira.
We're all set.
Right this way.
Gentleman, please have a seat.
So I assume Mr.
Thompson has made you aware of our rate of exchange? Yeah.
Reed explained it to me.
Good.
I find it's the best way to describe how we, uh, convert and move our assets without getting into certain un-pleasantries.
Right.
So, uh how would you like to have your account entered? In your name? Yes, please.
Yeah.
And what identification would you like to use to access it? Yeah, um, I'll be using my, uh, my North Dakota drivin' license.
Here you go.
I like your statue.
Thank you.
It's Persian jade.
Yeah, my mom's had one just like it when I was a kid.
Not that color, but a lion.
[LAUGHS] I dropped it.
She was She was mad.
You know what? - You should take it.
- Nah, it's No, no, please.
Think of it as a, uh, token of our future together.
Give it to your mother and watch her smile.
Thank you.
Now, in order to best understand how to protect your assets we should discuss how you plan to disperse them.
If it's just cash withdrawals, that is a process we can handle for you here, in house.
But, um, I was thinking of maybe investing.
You know, real estate? Oh.
If acquisitions are your final goal, may I make a recommendation? For an extra 6%, we can create a corporation for you.
In your name, but overseas.
This will allow you to acquire assets within the United States without drawing any unwanted attention.
- And where would this bank be? - It's not a bank.
It's just a place where your business will be based.
And there are several options, but at this point in time and for a variety of reasons, I recommend Jersey.
Y you could set an overseas account up in New Jersey? Forgive me.
Jersey is an island 5x9 miles in size off the coast of France.
So would you like to proceed with this? And this, um, extra 6% Seems like seems like a lot.
[SPEAKING FARSI] Of course.
Take your time.
[DOOR OPENS] [DOOR CLOSES] It's not that I don't understand.
Look, it's the same rate I get.
- It's the exact same deal.
- Yeah, no offense, Reed, but I still don't actually know you.
Thought this is what I wanted.
Now that I'm here, handing all my money over to another dude I don't know, trusting that all this is legit.
I don't know.
It doesn't seem right.
[EXHALES SLOWLY] I have what some people might call control issues.
And I always have and since I was a kid, really, but the simple truth is that I can't do everything alone.
So I have to empower the people that I choose to work with.
See, it's not just about being in charge.
It's about deciding how you want to be in charge.
Look, you wanna walk out of here right now, that's fine.
I understand.
I'll keep taking your fives and your ones.
I don't care.
It makes no difference to me.
But what you have to decide is just how big you want your business to become.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC BUILDING] And how much control you are willing to cede to get it there.
We got a problem.
Shit.
We're short.
Short what? What you talkin' bout "short"? Money.
From the trucks.
Almost five grand.
Come on, boy.
You telling me you get yo balls - all twisted up over five grand? - It's not the money.
It's the principle.
This ain't no corner boy shit.
It's one of us.
- You stealin' from me, nigga? - [SCOFFS] [CHUCKLING] I know your ass ain't askin' me so who you think took it? I don't know.
I don't know.
My advice? Let that shit be.
Assume whoever took it need it.
Eh? We got a problem.
These cats got took.
Couple fat motherfuckers jacked us.
They stole the take and the rock.
How much they get? 150 cash.
Couple dozen rocks.
We tried to stop them, but there was four of 'em.
They was big.
Mm-hmm.
Hey.
They for real.
Y'all good? Need a doctor or something? Nah, we straight.
Hazard pay.
Go get yourselves cleaned up.
Come back whenever you ready.
All right? [DOOR SHUTS] Hm.
[SIGHS] - What? - Fuck, you mean "what"? People talkin'.
Since Delroy and Victor, feel like maybe you ain't got people back.
[TENSE MUSIC BUILDING] Peaches.
Call your guy.
Tell him we need some help.
All right? [DOOR SHUTS] [TELEVISION PLAYING] Teddy.
You got a tree.
- Hm? - Yes, Matthew.
I thought maybe we were lacking on Christmas spirit.
- You even got lights.
- Yeah.
Strung 'em myself.
What's with the bag? It's gonna go home.
Didn't want Dad to be alone for Christmas.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah.
That's great.
Enjoy.

[BREATHES DEEPLY] Christmas with the old man.
- Mm-hmm.
- Negative.
Well [CLEARS THROAT] I can fly you to D.
C.
, spend it with Julia and Paul.
Uh, they're actually gonna go up to her family's place for the week in Vermont.
So I'll drop you there.
Hm? I'm not actually welcome.
It's a Catholic family and all, so they weren't exactly thrilled about the divorce.
Huh.
I didn't realize that you had filed the paperwork already.
[CHUCKLES SOFTLY] Come on.
You hated that I got married.
Yeah, well I mean I hate the idea of marriage as an institution more than yours specifically.
[TENSE MUSIC] Did you guys discuss custody? - - - Holy fuck.
- What? Um.
Don't leave.
- What's wrong? - I might have a problem.
- What kind of a problem? - Can you give me an hour - or two and then you can go? - Teddy.

You ain't got to take that tone with me.
I asked you how much you want, right? - Just say the number.
- What's the problem, Jerome? What, you don't trust me? Or you just think I'm not good enough? You just comin' off kinda ungrateful like I ain't Nah, that ain't what this is.
Wait a minute, I took you in.
- Took me in? - Remember that? When they had tossed your ass to the side? I done everything for you.
I ain't even want to be a part of this game.
- I did this shit for you.
- Listen to me.
I want what I have fucking earned and you gonna give it to me.
No.
I ain't giving you shit.
What you need to do is lay your ass down, so you can get your head right.
You know what? You right.
I do need to lay down.
Next to somebody else.
So go and do that then 'cause I'm tired of the bullshit.
And I ain't got time for you, Jerome, 'cause this is it! I'm done.
