I MEAN, YOU'VE SEEN HIM, BUT YOU NEVER KNEW WHO HE WAS.
YOU'VE CHEERED FOR HIM AND CRIED FOR HIM, WOMEN HAVE WANTED TO DIE FOR HIM.
BUT DID HE EVER GET ANY CREDIT? OR THE GIRL? NO.
HE WAS WHAT WE CALL A STUNTMAN.
AND THE REASON I'M TALKIN' SO FONDLY ABOUT HIM IS-- WELL, BECAUSE IT'S ME, COLT SEAVERS.
ANYWAY, PICTURE WORK ISN'T WALL-TO-WALL EMPLOYMENT.
SO MAYBE YOU WONDER HOW A GUY KEEPS HIS HEAD TOGETHER.
WELL, ONE WAY IS TO WAIT BY THE PHONE AND WAIT AND WAIT.
THE OTHER IS TO TAKE AN OCCASIONAL JOB FOR THE COURT SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WHERE A MAN IS CONSIDERED INNOCEN UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
UNFORTUNATELY, SOMETIMES A LO OF THESE PEOPLE GET OUT OF JAIL ON WHAT WE CALL BAIL.
AND THEY RUN LIKE HELL.
THAT'S WHERE I COME IN.
I SOMETIMES PICK UP RENT MONEY TRYIN' TO FIND THEM AND BRING THEM BACK TO JUSTICE.
BUT SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO KEEP ALL FOUR WHEELS ON THE GROUND AND MAKE A LIVING AT THE SAME TIME.
WE'RE READY TO GO.
WHAT HAPPENED TO SEAVERS? COLT'LL KNOW WHAT TO DO.
HE'S ABSOLUTELY THE BEST.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I HAVE SUCH A SOFT HEART.
COLT! ARE YOU IN THERE? WELL, HE'S GOTTA BE AROUND HERE SOMEWHERE.
I'LL CHECK THE SET.
YOU WAIT RIGHT HERE.
I COULD'VE SWORN IT WAS TOMORROW.
I DOUBLE-CHECKED AND EVERYTHING.
WELL, NEXT TIME, TRIPLE-CHECK.
A LITTLE SHOWBIZ MISTAKE, OKAY? BUT YOUR LITTLE MISTAKES HAVE A WAY OF ADDIN' UP.
I'M SORRY! FORGET IT.
I DON'T WAN YOU TO FEEL GUILTY OR ANYTHING.
GUILTY? IT WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE.
WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT LATER.
RIGHT NOW, I GOT A GAG TO DO.
GOOD LUCK.
I'LL SEE YOU IN THE TRAILER.
WELL, GLAD YOU COULD MAKE IT, COLT.
YOU DIDN'T THINK I'D DREAM UP THIS STUNT AND NOT SHOW UP TO SHOOT IT, DID YOU? ME? NO.
THE THOUGH NEVER CROSSED MY MIND.
YEAH, UH-HUH.
WELL, LET'S GET WITH IT.
WARDROBE.
HELLO? HELLO.
I'M COLEEN WILCOX.
BIG JACK BROUGHT ME HERE.
I GUESS SHE WEN TO GO FIND YOU.
SHE DID? WELL, I GUESS A STUNTMAN IS PRETTY HARD TO PIN DOWN.
WELL, NOT ALWAYS.
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU? WELL, IT'S, UM, KIND OF COMPLICATED.
COULD I TALK TO YOU IN PRIVATE? CERTAINLY.
I LOVE TO TALK IN PRIVATE.
THANK YOU.
I FIGURED THEY ALL STARTED AT A YOUNG AGE.
YOU KNOW, FALLING OFF TRICYCLES, PUSHING THEIR GO-CARTS INTO WALLS.
THESE STUNTMEN ARE DEFINITELY NOT ALL THERE.
YOU ALL SET, COLT? AS READY AS I'LL EVER BE.
GOOD LUCK, JODY.
SAME TO YOU, COLT.
ALL RIGHT, EVERYONE NOT DIRECTLY CONNECTED WITH THIS SHOT, PLEASE STAY BACK.
- READY, COLT? - YEAH.
THAT'S A 10-4.
OKAY, LET'S DO IT.

THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL! IF YOU ASK ME, THEY'VE BOTH COME IN A FEW TIMES WITH THEIR LANDING GEAR UP.
YOU DID IT AGAIN, COLT.
FANTASTIC.
PIECE OF CAKE.
YOU TOO, JODY.
THANKS.
ALL RIGHT, WE'LL DO THE CLOSE-UPS NEXT.
I'LL NEED THE PRINCIPALS IN ABOUT 10 MINUTES.
WHAT'S THE MATTER, JODY? YOU LOOK A LITTLE PALE.
ONLY BECAUSE YOU ONLY SCARED ME HALF TO DEATH.
I TOLD YOU IT WAS GONNA BE TIGHT.
TIGHT? THAT FIT WAS TIGHTER THAN MY FRENCH JEANS.
WELL, THEY LOOK GOOD TO ME.
WE GOTTA GET MORE STUNT GIRLS AROUND HERE.
[ Coleen ] I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN.
BEGIN AT THE BEGINNING.
THAT'S USUALLY THE BEST WAY.
I'M SORRY.
IT'S JUST THA I'M SO RELIEVED TO FINALLY MEET YOU.
[ Door Opens ] EXCUSE ME.
I HOPE I'M NOT INTERRUPTING.
WELL, AS A MATTER OF FACT-- DO YOU ALWAYS ALLOW PEOPLE TO BARGE IN TO YOUR TRAILER? HIS TRAILER? WELL, YES.
IT SAYS "COLT SEAVERS" RIGHT ON THE DOOR.
WELL, I KNOW.
I'M COLT SEAVERS.
WELL, IF YOU'RE COLT SEAVERS, THEN WHO ARE YOU? WELL, I'M HOWARD MUNSON.
COLT AND I ARE PARTNERS.
YOU MEAN ALL THIS TIME, YOU WANTED TO TALK TO COLT? OH, THIS IS SO EMBARRASSING.
HEY, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
IT'S A COMMON PROBLEM.
PEOPLE CONFUSE US ALL THE TIME.
COLT, THIS IS COLEEN.
- COLEEN, THIS IS COLT SEAVERS.
- HOW DO YOU DO, MA'AM? WELL, I SEE YOU'VE ALL MET EACH OTHER.
- BIG JACK, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? - I BROUGHT COLEEN.
SHE SAID THA IF ANYONE COULD HELP ME, IT WOULD BE YOU.
HELP YOU DO WHAT? WELL, COLEEN WILL EXPLAIN.
I JUST GOT BEEPED.
I'VE GOTTA GO HELP SOME POOR SOUL WITH HIS BAIL.
I'LL SEE YOU ALL LATER.
[ Colt ] WAIT A MINUTE, JACK.
BYE.
IF THIS ISN'T A BAIL CASE, WHAT IS IT? I'M SORRY.
I CAN'T TALK NOW.
I GOTTA GO.
I'LL COME WITH YOU.
[ Coleen ] PLEASE, COLT.
ALL RIGHT, COME ON.
YOU WANNA TELL ME WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT? DOES THE NAME LONNIE WILCOX MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU? LON WILCOX? SURE.
THAT MISERABLE BUM.
THAT MISERABLE BUM IS MY BROTHER.
[ Sighs ] WELL, LOOK, FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE MISLEADING.
HE WASN'T SUCH A BAD GUY IF YOU GOT TO KNOW HIM.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIE, MR.
SEAVERS.
LONNIE IS A SPOILED, ROTTEN CHILD WHO'S NEVER BEEN ANYTHING BUT TROUBLE.
BUT HE IS MY BROTHER.
HE'S YOUR BROTHER? THAT GUY'S YOUR BROTHER? YES, AND HE NEEDS HELP.
YEAH, WELL, WHAT'D HE DO NOW? WELL, AS YOU MAY RECALL, HE HAS SOMETHING OF A GAMBLING PROBLEM.
PROBLEM? LADY, HE WAS A JUNKIE WHEN IT CAME TO SPORTS BETTING.
YEAH, WELL, IT FINALLY CAUGHT UP TO HIM.
HE OWES A FORTUNE TO SOME RATHER UNSCRUPULOUS BUSINESSMEN.
BUSINESSMEN? AS IN BOOKIE? I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW.
ALL I KNOW IS THAT TWO MEN CAME TO MINNEAPOLIS AND THREATENED ME.
I TOLD THEM I HAD NO IDEA WHERE LONNIE WAS.
WAS THAT THE TRUTH? NO.
I HAD TO PROTECT HIM.
LONNIE'S HERE IN L.
A.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? LAST WEEK WAS THE ANNIVERSARY OF MY MOTHER'S FUNERAL.
LONNIE ALWAYS SENDS FLOWERS.
I HAD THE ORDER TRACED BACK HERE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, LONNIE PAID FOR THE FLOWERS IN CASH, AND NOBODY SEEMS TO REMEMBER ANYTHING ABOUT HIM.
COLEEN, I'D LIKE TO HELP YOU, BUT I'M A BOUNTY HUNTER.
I ONLY GO AFTER A MAN IF THERE'S A COURT ORDER TO BRING HIM BACK.
WHAT YOU NEED IS A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR, A MAN WHO'S LICENSED TO LOOK FOR MISSING PERSONS.
BUT YOU KNOW LONNIE.
YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM.
YOU KNOW HIS HABITS.
YOU WERE THE ONLY PERSON WHO WAS ABLE TO TRACK HIM DOWN LAST TIME.
MR.
SEAVERS, I HAVE $10,000 IN THE BANK.
IT'S ALL I'VE GOT, AND IT'S YOURS.
BUT YOU'VE GOT TO HELP ME FIND MY BROTHER BEFORE THOSE GANGSTERS DO.
[ Sobbing ] HEY, HEY, IT CAN' BE ALL THAT BAD NOW.
I FEEL SO STUPID CRYING IN FRONT OF YOU LIKE THIS.
LOOK, UH, YOU'RE GONNA FIND YOUR BROTHER.
YOU MEAN YOU'LL HELP ME? NO, BUT I CAN PUT YOU IN TOUCH WITH SOMEBODY WHO WILL.
COME ON.
[ Colt ] MOBILE OPERATOR, PLEASE.
WHO ARE YOU CALLING? A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR NAMED HARVEY MEDINA.
BUT HE'S NOT THERE.
IT'S AN ANSWERING MACHINE.
I HATE TALKING ON THOSE MACHINES.
HARVEY, IT'S COLT SEAVERS.
GIVE ME A CALL ON THE SE WHEN YOU GET IN, PLEASE.
THANK YOU.
THE MACHINE SAID HE'D BE BACK AROUND 5:00.
WHY DON'T I TAKE YOU TO YOUR HOTEL? - THEN WHEN HE CALLS ME, THEN I'LL HAVE HIM CALL YOU.
- I DON'T KNOW HOW TO THANK YOU.
FOR WHAT? I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING.
I'M SORRY.
IT'S JUST THA I FEEL SO HELPLESS.
COLEEN, DO YOU KNOW ANYBODY IN A LIGHT BLUE CHRYSLER? WHAT? A LIGHT BLUE CHRYSLER.
HOW COULD I? I'VE NEVER BEEN TO L.
A.
BEFORE.
- GET ON THE FLOOR, QUICK.
- WHAT? GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR, QUICK! [ Screams ] YOU ALL RIGHT? I THINK YOU TWISTED MY NECK WHEN YOU THREW ME ON THE GROUND.
THOSE GUYS HAD SHOTGUNS, WHICH IS NOT THE WAY A BOOKIE NORMALLY COLLECTS DEBTS.
SO WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT? I'VE DRIVEN DOWN THIS STREE A LOT.
IT'S THE FIRST TIME I EVER BEEN SHOT AT.
- I'VE TOLD YOU, I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON.
- I KNOW WHAT YOU TOLD ME.
NOW YOU WANNA TELL ME THE TRUTH? OKAY.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT THOSE MEN IN MINNEAPOLIS TOLD ME.
THEY SAID THAT THEY WERE GONNA MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF LONNIE, THAT THEY WERE GONNA KILL HIM AND ANYONE ELSE THAT GOT IN THEIR WAY.
[ Sighs ] COLT, I DON'T BLAME YOU FOR NOT GETTING INVOLVED.
LOOK, I'LL PAY FOR THE DAMAGES TO YOUR TRUCK.
THE MONEY'S AT MY HOTEL.
FORGET THE HOTEL.
- WELL, THEN WHERE ARE WE GOING? - MY PLACE.
YOUR PLACE? LOOK, IT'S TEMPORARY, BELIEVE ME.
ONCE I GET HARVEY, I'M GONNA PUT YOU IN HIS HANDS.
YOU'LL BE A LOT BETTER OFF.
I HAVEN'T FELT SAFER IN WEEKS.
I'M PUTTING YOU TO SO MUCH TROUBLE.
I FEEL TERRIBLE ABOUT IT.
YEAH, WELL, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY AFTER I MAKE THIS PHONE CALL.
HARVEY LOVES OTHER PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS.
COLT, I MEAN IT.
I'M REALLY SORRY.
YEAH, HARVEY.
COLT SEAVERS.
YEAH, I'VE GOT A CASE FOR YOU.
IT'S A YOUNG LADY WHO'S LOOKING FOR HER BROTHER.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT'S WORTH $10,000 TO YOU.
YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A GUY NAMED LON WILCOX.
RIGHT.
ALL RIGHT.
FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, POLICE HEADQUARTERS.
I'LL BE THERE.
GOOD NIGHT, HARVEY.
DON'T TELL ME.
HARV COULD USE THE WORK.
YOU GOT YOURSELF A FIRST-CLASS DETECTIVE.
I WAS GROWING ATTACHED TO THE ONE I HAD.
THAT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HARV.
HE'S THE BEST.
AND I KEEP TELLING YOU I'M NOT A DETECTIVE.
I'M A STUNTMAN.
AND A VERY HANDSOME ONE.
IT'S BEEN A LONG DAY, AND I THINK WE NEED TO GET YOU INTO BED-- UH, TO SLEEP.
WELL, WHERE ARE YOU GONNA SLEEP? OUT ON THE COUCH.
LOOK, LOOK.
I'LL STAY ON THE COUCH, AND YOU CAN STAY IN HERE, OKAY? IT'S JUST NOT RIGHT.
OH, NO, NO.
I'LL BE FINE.
AND THAT WAY, IF ANYBODY TRIES TO BREAK IN, I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.
COLT? YO! COLT, YOU UP YET? - UH-- COLEEN.
- [ Sighs ] I'M SORRY.
GOOD MORNING, KID.
YOU'RE AMAZING.
NOW I KNOW WHY YOU WANTED ME TO SLEEP IN THE TRAILER LAST NIGHT.
HEY, IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.
OF COURSE NOT.
AND I SUPPOSE YOU'RE GONNA TELL ME YOU SLEP ON THE COUCH, HUH? YEAH, WELL, I GO THE BACKACHE TO PROVE IT.
GOOD MORNING, GUYS.
COLT, THANKS FOR THE USE OF YOUR SHIRT AND YOUR BED.
I GOT A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP.
OH, I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.
KID, I WANT YOU TO STAY AND WATCH COLEEN.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING? TO GET HARVEY STARTED LOOKING FOR YOUR BROTHER.
I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO GET RID OF ME? AND I WILL WHEN I KNOW YOU'RE SAFE.
YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER.
[ Door Closes ] HEY, THERE GOES THE STUNTMAN.
AND HE'S ALL ALONE.
PERFECT.
HOWIE, ARE YOU SURE THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO? I'M POSITIVE.
HERE.
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR EGGS? SCRAMBLED'S FINE.
OKAY, TWO SCRAMBLED EGGS AND A SIDE OF BACON COMING RIGHT UP.
NOW, YOU JUS GO DRINK YOUR COFFEE AND LEAVE THE COOKING TO ME.
ANYTHING YOU SAY.
HOWIE! WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK YOU'RE-- HOLD IT RIGHT THERE, COOKIE! DIDN'T WE WARN YOU TO STAY OUT OF OUR WAY? YES, BUT-- - NOW, WAIT A MINUTE.
- [ Blows Landing ] OH! BOY, OH, BOY.
AM I GLAD YOU SHOWED UP.
HOW YOU DOING, HARVEY? SPARE ME THE SWEETNESS.
I DO NOT LIKE BEING MADE A FOOL OF.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? YOUR FRIEND, WILCOX, LON W.
-- HE'S BEEN DEAD FOR SIX MONTHS.
DEAD? SPARE ME THE SURPRISE.
NOW, YOU ADMIT IT.
YOU DANGLED $10,000 IN FRONT OF MY NOSE SO I WOULD DO FOUR HOURS OF PAPERWORK FOR YOU! HARVEY, YOU KNOW ME BETTER THAN THAT.
I MEAN, ARE YOU SURE IT'S THE RIGHT LON WILCOX? YEAH.
I CHECKED EVERYTHING OUT.
YOUR MAN WAS KILLED BY FEDERAL AUTHORITIES.
WHY WASN'T HIS SISTER NOTIFIED? THAT I DON'T KNOW.
LOOK, DO ME A FAVOR, WILL YOU? DON'T SAY ANYTHING TO THE GIRL JUST YET.
I GOT A COUPLE THINGS TO CHECK OUT, OKAY? UH, DETECTIVE'S INTUITION? IN MY BUSINESS, NEATNESS COUNTS.
THIS CASE IS UNTIDY.
YOU'LL BE HEARING FROM ME.
THANKS, HARVEY.
SPARE ME.
[ Door Opens, Closes ] WHAT HAPPENED HERE? COLT, I-- I'M SORRY.
KID, YOU ALL RIGHT? YEAH.
BUT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT HER BROTHER.
HE'S DEFINITELY ON SOMEBODY'S HIT LIST.
THEY SAID THEY'D KILL US IF WE DIDN'T STOP TRYING TO WARN HIM.
WHO DID? TWO MEN.
THEY HELD A GUN TO MY HEAD, AND-- POOR HOWIE.
THEY ALMOS BEAT HIM TO DEATH.
NOW, I'LL BE ALL RIGHT, COLEEN.
IT'S ALL IN A DAY'S WORK FOR A STUNTMAN.
I'M REALLY MESSING UP YOUR LIFE, AREN'T I? I WOULDN'T EXACTLY CALL YOU A RABBIT'S FOOT.
[ Phone Ringing ] - HELLO.
- COLT, LISTEN, I'VE GOT SOMETHING.
I GOTTA MEET YOU RIGHT AWAY-- ALONE.
- YEAH? WHAT IS IT? - WILCOX MAY NOT BE DEAD.
IS THE GIRL STILL WITH YOU? YEAH, BUT I CAN' LEAVE HER ALONE.
SOMEBODY BROKE INTO MY HOUSE.
OKAY.
OKAY, WELL, MAYBE BRINGING THE GIRL ISN'T SUCH A BAD IDEA.
AND, COLT, LISTEN.
BE CAREFUL, WILL YOU? $10,000 MAY NOT BE SUCH A BARGAIN FOR THIS CASE.
RIGHT.
HARVEY MEDINA? WHAT'D HE SAY? IT WASN'T AS MUCH AS WHA HE SAID AS HOW HE SAID IT.
FOR A MAN WHO'S BEEN THROUGH ALMOST EVERYTHING, HARVEY SOUNDED DAMNED SCARED.
I THINK YOU AND HARVEY SHOULD GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.
COME ON.
THANKS, SERGEANT.
PARDON ME, OFFICER.
WHAT'S GOING ON? A GUY NAMED HARVEY MEDINA WAS HIT BY A CAR.
HIT BY A CAR? YOU'RE KIDDING! NO.
RIGHT OVER HERE.
WAS HE HURT BAD? HE'S IN INTENSIVE CARE.
LAST I HEARD, IT WAS TOUCH AND GO.
WHERE'S THE DRIVER? I WISH I KNEW.
IT WAS A HIT-AND-RUN.
COLT, I DON'T BUY THA FOR A SECOND.
YEAH, NEITHER DO I.
THEY SAID THA THEY'D KILL ANYONE WHO TRIED TO PROTECT MY BROTHER.
I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW LONNIE COULD BE INVOLVED WITH SUCH RUTHLESS GANGSTERS.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WAS THAT HARVEY WAS ONTO? I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE.
BUT WHATEVER IT WAS, THEY DIDN'T WAN IT PASSED ON TO ME.
WELL, SOMETHING TELLS ME WE'D BETTER FIND OU WHAT IT WAS.
NO.
LOOK, IT'S MY PROBLEM, AND I DON'T WANNA SEE ANYONE ELSE GETTING HURT.
WELL, THAT'S WHY WE HAVE TO FIND YOUR BROTHER.
IT'S THE ONLY WAY WE'RE GONNA GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS.
HOW DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GONNA FIND HIM? LIKE I DID THE FIRST TIME-- THROUGH THE BOOKIES.
- BOOKIES? - HEY, IT WORKED ONCE.
MAYBE IT'LL WORK AGAIN.
LET'S GO.
I ADMI IT'S NOT MUCH TO GO ON, BUT WITH HARVEY IN INTENSIVE CARE, IT'S ALL WE GOT.
COLT, I'M AFRAID YOU LOST ME ON THIS BOOKIE BUSINESS.
HER BROTHER IS WHAT WE CALL A PATTERNED GAMBLER.
EXCEPT FOOTBALL SEASON'S OVER.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S GONNA BET ON? WELL, WE'LL STAR WITH COLLEGE BASKETBALL.
YOU'RE GONNA FIND A BOOKIE IN A PLACE LIKE THIS? HEY, EVEN A BOOKIE HAS TO GET HIS HAIR CUT.
THIS ONE ISN'T GETTIN' HIS HAIR CUT.
HE'S THE CUTTER.
[ Man ] WELL, YOU TELL YOUR HUSBAND THAT TWO CAN PLAY AT THAT GAME.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? WHAT'S GOOD FOR THE GANDER IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE.
WOULD YOU LIKE A LITTLE WHITE WINE? EXCUSE ME.
IS SYDNIE WORKING TODAY? HEALTHIEST HAIR I'VE EVER SEEN.
IT'S LIKE SILK.
HEY, SYD.
YOU GOT A MINUTE? COLT SEAVERS.
SYDNIE, COME BACK HERE! I JUST WANNA TALK TO YOU! SYDNIE! WILL YOU-- SYDNIE, WILL YOU WAIT A MINUTE! NOT A CHANCE! SYDNIE, WAIT A MINUTE! YOU'RE GONNA-- YOU'RE GONNA KILL US BOTH! WATCH THE ROAD! WASN'T THAT COLT? IT SURE LOOKED LIKE HIM.
EXCUSE ME.
SYDNIE! SYDNIE, TURN! SORRY, SEAVERS! I GOTTA SPLIT! THERE HE IS! ALL RIGHT! OKAY, SEAVERS.
ALL RIGHT.
YOU GOT ME, MAN! I JUST WANNA KNOW HOW YOU KNEW SO FAST.
KNEW WHAT? THAT I DIDN'T MAKE MY COURT DATE.
IT WAS ONLY TWO HOURS AGO! I DIDN'T KNOW.
I JUST WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT A GUY.
YOU MEAN YOU MADE ME WRECK MY NEW MOTORCYCLE, AND ALL YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT WAS A GUY? I DIDN'T MAKE YOU DO NOTHIN'.
YOU WERE DOIN' THE DRIVING.
OKAY, SEAVERS.
WHAT GUY DO YOU WANNA KNOW ABOUT? WELL, HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE A CLIENT OF YOURS.
I CUT HIS HAIR? NO, YOU TAKE HIS BETS.
OH.
THAT KIND OF CLIENT.
YEAH.
SUPERSTITIOUS KIND OF GUY.
HE BETS PATTERNS, HUNCHES.
A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, HE MADE A BIG SCORE ON COLLEGE BASKETBALL.
A FIVE-TEAM PARLAY.
OH, YEAH, YEAH.
ONLY BETS ON TEAMS NAMED AFTER BIRDS.
THEY CALL HIM THE BIRDMAN.
THAT'S HIM.
YOU, UH, STILL BOOK HIS ACTION? NO.
HE GO TOO BIG FOR ME, MAN.
I TURNED HIM OVER TO A GUY NAMED VIC.
VIC.
YEAH, I'VE HEARD OF HIM.
NOW, WHERE DOES HE HANG OUT? [ Chuckles ] HEY, MAN, I CAN'T TELL YOU THAT, 'CAUSE HE'LL COME DOWN ON ME.
WHAT DO YOU THINK I'LL DO IF YOU DON'T TELL ME? OKAY, SEAVERS.
FOURTH AND MAIN.
A PLACE CALLED LUIGI'S.
YOU TRY THERE FIRST.
BUT LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE ADVICE.
VIC IS A TOUGH DUDE.
HMM.
YEAH, WELL, LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE ADVICE, MY FRIEND.
YOU KNOW THAT COURT DATE THAT YOU JUST MISSED? YEAH? WELL, IF I WERE YOU, I'D RUN RIGHT DOWN THERE.
LIKE THEY SAY: BETTER LATE THAN IN VIOLATION OF YOUR BOND.
- WHO SAYS? - I DO.
A LITTLE THREE-FOOT BANK SHO BY KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR.
AND IT'S GOOD.
[ Exhales ] AND THE LAKERS LEAD 38-33.
IF I EVER TAKE ANOTHER BET, I HOPE SOMEBODY SHOOTS ME.
YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL WHO HEARS YOU SAYING STUFF LIKE THAT.
SEAVERS! YOU OLD SON OF A GUN.
LOOKIN' TO LAY DOWN SOME MONEY? [ Laughing ] - WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO? - WORKING.
HOW ABOUT YOU? EH, SAME.
EXCEPT MY WORK'S A LITTLE STEADIER THAN YOURS, AND, UH, SAFER.
- YEAH, AND MORE PROFITABLE.
- NOT LATELY.
I GOT THIS ONE LOSER WHO'S SUDDENLY BECOME A BIG WINNER.
- THE BIRDMAN? - YEAH.
HOW DID YOU KNOW? ANYWAY, THIS BIRDMAN, HE'S BEEN KILLING ME.
ALL THESE TEAMS NAMED AFTER BIRDS, THEY START WINNING.
HE STARTS DOUBLING UP.
SO I-- I LAY HIS ACTION OFF ON RAYMOND FRANKS.
FRANKS? HE'S NO BIGGER THAN YOU ARE.
OH, HE IS NOW.
JUST TOOK IN SOME NEW PARTNERS.
HE MOVED UPTOWN.
- HOW FAR UPTOWN? - DAYTON AND SPRING.
SIXTEENTH FLOOR.
[ Howie ] COLT, I'M TELLIN' YA, THIS GUY FRANKS IS THE BIG TIME.
I MEAN, WE CAN'T JUST WALK UP TO HIS DESK AND ASK HIM WHERE AND WHEN HE'S GONNA MAKE A PAYOFF TO ONE OF HIS BETTORS.
THE GUY PROBABLY HAS DEMENTED AND SADISTIC KILLERS WORKING FOR HIM.
DON'T HOLD BACK, KID.
GET IT OFF YOUR CHEST.
- THIS IS NO TIME FOR JOKES, COLT.
- HE'S RIGHT.
I CAN'T HAVE YOU GO UP AGAINST SOMEBODY WHO SOUNDS AS DANGEROUS AS THIS MAN FRANKS.
HERE IT IS.
HERE WHAT IS? THE MAN WHO'S GONNA MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO FIND THE PAYOFF WITHOUT FRANKS EVER KNOWING.
- HI, JODY.
- HI.
WELL, I GOT HERE AS FAST AS I COULD.
WHAT'S UP? WELL, HOWIE AND I HAVE A LITTLE JOB TO DO.
I WANT YOU TO STAY WITH COLEEN HERE UNTIL WE GET BACK.
- COLT, THAT'S NOT NECESSARY.
- WELL, I HOPE IT ISN'T NECESSARY EITHER.
BUT IT'D MAKE ME FEEL A LOT BETTER KNOWING YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO REPAY YOU FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
BOTH OF YOU.
WELL, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH A-- YEAH, MAYBE LATER WHEN WE'VE DONE SOMETHING TO DESERVE BEING THANKED FOR.
BY THE WAY, CHECK OUTSIDE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.
- YEAH, I'LL KEEP THE LIGHTS ON OUT THERE.
- I UNLOCKED THE GUN CASE.
WELL, COME ON, KID.
WE GOTTA SEE A MAN ABOUT A SAFE.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
[ Howie ] HOW ARE WE GONNA GET INTO FRANKS' OFFICE? [ Colt ] DON'T WORRY, KID.
I GOT THE BES SECOND-STORY MAN IN TOWN.
[ Howie ] OH, THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO SPEND NEW YEAR'S EVE.
LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHIN'.
WE JUST PASSED RIGHT BY THE FLOOR.
WE COULD'VE GONE RIGHT IN THE OFFICE.
WHAT, AND SET OFF EVERY ALARM IN THE BUILDING? WELL, IF WE CAN'T GO THROUGH THE DOOR, HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET IN? WHAT'S HE DOING WITH A GLASS CUTTER? HOW ELSE IS HE GONNA CUT THE GLASS? AND THE ROPES? THAT'S HOW WE'RE GONNA GET INTO THE OFFICE.
[ Chuckles ] OH! NO WAY! FORGET IT! THIS IS NOT FOR ME.
IT'S THE SAFEST WAY TO BREAK INTO AN OFFICE.
THERE'S ALMOST NO CHANCE OF GETTIN' CAUGHT.
PUT THAT ON.
YEAH, BUT-- OH! WHAT IF I FALL? YOU'RE NOT GONNA FALL.
NOW TRUST ME.
YOU KNOW SOMETHIN'? YOU'RE RIGHT.
I'M NOT GONNA FALL.
AND YOU KNOW WHY I'M NOT GONNA FALL? BECAUSE I'M GOIN' HOME.
PLEASE DON'T CALL ME AGAIN, OKAY? MURPH.
MURPH, LOOK.
IT'S FUN! IT'S ALMOST LIKE FLYING.
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
I DON'T FLY.
EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE TIME I GOT EXTRADITED FROM OKLAHOMA, BUT I DON'T COUNT THAT ONE.
CRIMINALS NOWADAYS DON'T SEEM TO HAVE THAT SENSE OF ADVENTURE, DO THEY, COLT? [ Chuckles ] YOU FELLAS DON'T UNDERSTAND.
I DON'T HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE.
YOU WON'T NEED IT.
COME ON.
STEP.
RIGHT UP THERE.
THAT-A-BOY.
WRAP IT AROUND YOUR LEG.
[ Groans ] THAT'S OKAY.
YOU GOTTA HAVE IT TIGHT.
YEAH.
LISTEN, IS IT OKAY IF WE GO TO THE MOVIES INSTEAD? WE DON'T WANNA DO THIS.
HERE WE GO.
YOU READY? BE HONEST ABOUT THIS.
WHAT DO YOU-- OH, MY! [ Colt ] I PROMISE YOU WON'T FALL.
TRUST ME.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN, FALL? HOOK HIM UP, KID.
OH, PLEASE, DON'T! THERE MUST BE AN EASIER WAY.
COME ON.
OH! [ Sobbing ] I DON'T WANNA DO THIS! ONE.
TWO.
THREE! OH! COLT! HOWIE! COME ON! FELLAS, LISTEN TO ME! SOMEBODY! I DON'T WANNA-- [ Sobbing ] THIS IS-- OOH! LOOK, CAN WE GO UP INSTEAD? AW, COME ON! - THIS IS FRANKS' OFFICE.
- COLT, THERE'S NOTHIN' TO STAND ON! YEAH, BUT AS SOON AS HE GETS THESE SUCTION CUPS ON THE GLASS, YOU'LL AT LEAST HAVE SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO.
"HOLD ON.
" THAT'S THE FIRST SANE THING YOU'VE SAID TONIGHT.
DON'T WORRY, MURPH.
YOU COULDN'T POSSIBLY FALL.
WE'VE GOT YOU TIED OFF ON THE ROOF.
HOWIE, I KNOW YOU MEAN WELL, BUT IF ANY GUY'S GONNA FALL, I'M GONNA FALL.
I GET PAROLED A YEAR SOONER TO DIE LIKE THIS? ISN'T THAT EASY NOW? EASIER WAS ALCATRAZ! WHERE IS HE GOING? HE'S GONNA CUT OU A PIECE OF THE WINDOW.
NOW YOU JUST RELAX.
OH, MY GOD! WILL YOU HURRY UP? OH! WHY ME? HURRY UP! COME ON! MOVE FASTER, WILL YOU? LISTEN, LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.
HOW CAN YOU GUYS BE SO CALM? COME ON! [ Sobbing ] LOOK, FELLAS.

I-I-I-I-- I DON'T WANNA BE A PAIN IN THE NECK, BUT MOVE IT! COLT! COLT, THIS THING IS SLIPPING! MURPH, REATTACH IT! REATTACH WHAT? I'M GONNA DIE! - MURPH! - [ Screaming ] DON'T LOOK DOWN, MURPH.
I'M NOT LOOKIN' DOWN OR IN ANY DIRECTION.
I GOT MY EYES CLOSED! [ Straining ] [ Gasping ] FELLAS, COME ON! DO SOMETHIN'! - PULL, KID! - IF I DIE, I'M GONNA KILL YOU! [ Sobbing ] WHY AM I BEING SUBJECTED TO THIS? HIGHER! PULL HIGHER! THAT'S IT! COME ON, MORE! YEAH! YEAH! COME ON, PULL! I BET THIS COULD BE A LOT OF FUN IF I COULD ENJOY THIS.
MORE.
I KNOW THIS IS EASY FOR YOU, BUT-- BUT IT'S-- WHOA! FELLAS, PLEASE.
NEXT TIME, YOU GIVE ME A GUN, I'LL GO IN BLASTING.
IT'LL BE SAFER THAT WAY.
[ Groaning ] HEY, MURPH! MURPH, THE WORST IS OVER.
[ Panting ] THERE'S GOTTA BE A SAFE IN THIS ROOM SOMEWHERE.
HOW'D HE KNOW THAT'S WHERE IT WAS? THINK YOU CAN OPEN IT? ARE YOU KIDDIN'? AFTER TONIGHT, I COULD OPEN UP FORT KNOX.
OH! [ Clicking ] WOW! OH, BABY! HEY, HEY, HEY! NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! WHAT? WE DIDN'T COME HERE TO RIP HIM OFF.
- WHAT? WHAT DID WE COME HERE FOR? - RECORDS.
RECORDS? BOOKIES KEEP RECORDS OF WHERE THEY MAKE PAYOFFS TO CLIENTS.
WHEN AND FOR HOW MUCH.
YOU MEAN TO TELL ME I ALMOST KILLED MYSELF BECAUSE OF RECORDS? RAYMOND FRANKS? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? GIVE ME THIS! PUT IT BACK! WAIT A MINUTE! WAIT A MINUTE! COLT! WAIT-- WAIT A MINUTE.
WE'RE JUST GONNA BORROW IT, HUH? [ Footsteps Approaching ] BETTER GET OUT OF HERE.
THEY CAME IN THROUGH THE WINDOW! COME ON! LET'S GO TO THE ELEVATOR.
HANG ON.
WE MAY BE HAVING A LITTLE COMPANY.
HUH? OH! COLT, IF YOU WANNA KILL ME, WHY DON'T YOU PUT A GUN TO MY HEAD? MURPH, YOU'RE AS SAFE AS A BABY IN ITS MOTHER'S ARMS.
OH! WE'LL GET THOSE TURKEYS NOW.
OH! COME ON.
WE'RE GAINING NOW.
COME ON.
[ No Audible Dialogue ] [ Howie ] THERE'S A CAR CARRIER BLOCKING THE STREET! - NO! - [ Colt ] HANG ON! WE'RE GOING OVER! [ Murph ] NO! NO! NO! [ Screaming ] LOOK OUT! MURPH? MURPH? ARE YOU OKAY? GIVE HIM A MINUTE, KID.
HE'LL THAW OUT.
COLT, WAS MURPH'S HAIR ALWAYS THIS GRAY? [ Howie ] COLT, THIS MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.
HEY.
HERE YOU GO.
NOTHING LIKE A CUP OF HOT, FRESH COFFEE TO HELP YOU THINK STRAIGHT.
- THANKS, JODY.
- I GIVE UP.
WE CAN'T QUIT NOW.
ALL THESE NUMBERS HAVE TO MEAN SOMETHING.
WE JUST HAVE TO FIGURE OUT THE CODE.
YEAH, BUT THE ONLY WAY WE CAN DO THAT IS TO PUT IT THROUGH THE SAME KIND OF COMPUTER THAT FRANKS USED.
YEAH, WHICH WILL TAKE MORE TIME THAN WE GOT.
YEAH, I'M AFRAID SO.
WELL, IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE WE'VE GOT ANY OTHER OPTIONS.
WE DON'T, EXCEPT TO GET FRANKS TO INTERPRET HIS BOOKS FOR US.
COLT, YOU JUST STOLE THEM.
HE'S GONNA WANNA KILL YOU, NOT HELP YOU.
NOT IF I OFFER TO GIVE 'EM BACK.
NOW, LET'S SEE IF HE'S IN A MOOD TO STRIKE UP A DEAL.
COLT, YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS.
I'M AFRAID HE IS SERIOUS.
[ Phone Ringing ] HELLO? YEAH, I'D LIKE TO SPEAK TO RAYMOND FRANKS, PLEASE.
YOU GOT HIM.
WHO IS THIS? WELL, THAT'S NO IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT I HAPPEN TO KNOW THE WHEREABOUTS OF SOMETHING YOU'RE MISSING.
GO ON.
I WAS THINKING WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO STRIKE UP A LITTLE SWAP.
- WHAT'D YOU HAVE IN MIND? - LOOKING FOR ONE OF YOUR PLAYERS.
GOES BY THE NAME OF BIRDMAN.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE I MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIND HIM? I DO, PROVIDIN' WHAT'S MISSIN' IS RETURNED.
- OH, IT WILL BE.
- ALL RIGHT.
YOU KNOW LUIGI'S? I'LL MEET YOU THERE.
ON MY WAY.
WHO WAS THAT? A DEAD MAN.
JODY, GET ME AN ENVELOPE.
AN ENVELOPE? YEAH, A LARGE ONE.
AND SOME STAMPS.
YOU GOT IT.
I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU WANT IT, BUT YOU GOT IT.
I CERTAINLY HOPE THIS IS PART OF A MASTER PLAN.
IT IS.
GATHER UP THE BOOKS.
WE GOTTA MOVE.
I'M GOING WITH YOU.
NO, YOU'RE NOT.
YOU AND JODY ARE STAYING RIGHT HERE.
HERE YOU GO.
COLT, WHATEVER YOU DO, PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
DON'T WORRY.
JUST MAKE SURE THE DOOR'S LOCKED BEHIND US IN CASE YOUR BROTHER'S FRIENDS ARE STILL IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
LET'S GO, KID.
[ Man On TV ] IT'S GOING TO BE HARD TO GET USED TO, BUT OFFICIALLY DAVEY LOPES, THE FORMER DODGER SECOND BASEMAN, BECAME AN OAKLAND "A" TODAY.
THE DODGERS FEEL FREE TO TRADE THE 35-YEAR-OLD VETERAN FOR SEVERAL REASONS.
THEY HAVE A FINE YOUNG REPLACEMEN IN STEVE SAX, THEY DON'T HAVE TO PAY LOPES HIS HEAVY SALARY OF $300,000-PLUS, AND LOPES WASN' NECESSARILY EFFECTIVE ANYMORE ANYWAY WITH HIS AVERAGE OF JUST .
206 LAST YEAR.
ONE SIGNIFICANT STAT IN THE DEAL IS THE DODGERS INFIELD OF CEY, RUSSELL, LOPES AND GARVEY HAD BEEN TOGETHER SINCE 1973-- I WAS EXPECTING TO SEE SPIDER-MAN.
THAT'S A VERY CREATIVE WAY TO BREAK INTO AN OFFICE.
MY BOYS WERE VERY IMPRESSED.
OH, THERE'S NOTHING TO IT, REALLY.
NOW, YOU SAID YOU WOULD TELL ME HOW TO FIND THE BIRDMAN.
HE'LL BE AT THE CORNER OF HIGHLAND AND OLIVE IN PASADENA AT NOON.
- HIGHLAND AND OLIVE? - THAT'S RIGHT NEXT TO THE JAPANESE BRIDGE.
HE'LL BE THERE FOR HIS PAYOFF.
THE BIRDMAN WAS VERY LUCKY LAST WEEK.
UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN'T SAY THE SAME FOR YOU.
I THOUGHT WE HAD A BARGAIN.
A BARGAIN? COME, NOW.
YOU REALLY THINK I WAS GONNA LET YOU OFF THE HOOK? NO, I DIDN'T.
THAT'S WHY I MAILED YOUR BOOKS TO A FRIEND OF MINE ALONG WITH A LITTLE NOTE TO TAKE IT TO THE POLICE IF SHE DIDN'T HEAR FROM ME.
VERY CLEVER.
WELL, I NEEDED SOME INSURANCE TO MAKE SURE I WALKED OUT OF HERE ALIVE.
WELL, YOU'VE SEEN TO I THAT I CAN'T STOP YOU.
BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW FAR YOU'RE GONNA GET.
IT SEEMS THERE'S SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS A SCORE TO SETTLE WITH YOU BESIDES ME.
I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL A FEW MINUTES AGO FROM SOMEBODY BIGGER THAN BOTH OF US.
REALLY? YOU MIND TELLING ME WHO? FRIENDS IN THE MIDWEST? MIDWEST? THAT WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO BE MINNEAPOLIS, WOULD IT? YEAH.
HOW'D YOU KNOW? [ Chuckles ] GOOD GUESSER.
I SUGGES YOU STAY OFF THE STREETS.
THANKS FOR THE TIP.
HOW COULD SOMEONE HAVE CALLED HIM? WHO KNEW WE WERE COMING HERE? THE SAME PERSON THAT KNEW ABOUT HARVEY MEDINA AND EVERY OTHER MOVE WE'VE MADE.
YOU DON'T MEAN-- YES, I DO, KID.
SHE WAS STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO ME WHEN I SAID THE NAME OF THE BAR.
WELL, NOW SHE'S ALONE WITH JODY.
JODY? JODY? [ Muffled Grunting ] JODY! YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME COLEEN DID IT.
SHE WENT TO CALL SOMEBODY ABOUT HER BROTHER.
THEN SHE PULLED A GUN ON ME.
I KNOW SHE WENT TO SEE HIM, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE.
IT'S ALL RIGHT.
I DO.
OLIVE AND HIGHLAND, RIGHT, COLT? YEAH, KID.
ACCORDING TO THIS, THAT'S WHERE THEY STORE THE FLOATS AFTER THE ROSE PARADE.
[ Man ] OKAY, MOVING IN THIS DIRECTION.
FEEL FREE TO TAKE PICTURES IF YOU WANT TO.
THIS NEXT FLOAT CELEBRATES THE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT.
ALWAYS A FAVORITE WITH THE LOCAL PARTISANS, THE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMEN HAS BEEN ENTERING FLOATS-- COLT, I DON'T SEE ANY JAPANESE BRIDGE.
RIGHT OVER HERE.
IT'S MADE OUT OF FLOWERS.
WELL, YOU DON'T THINK THAT'S THE MEETING PLACE? CAN YOU THINK OF A PLACE LESS LIKELY FOR A BOOKIE TO MAKE A PAYOFF? YOU GOT A POINT.
WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME.
WILCOX WILL BE HERE ANY MINUTE, IF HE'S NOT HERE ALREADY.
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO.
UH-HUH.
I'LL SET UP THE DECOY.
[ Man ] IT ACTUALLY TOOK MONTHS TO BUILD THE BASIC STRUCTURE.
AND THEN ON DECEMBER 27, SEVERAL HUNDRED VOLUNTEERS WERE EMPLOYED TO ACTUALLY APPLY THE FLOWERS.
IT'S REALLY PRETTY, ISN'T IT? OKAY, RIGHT THIS WAY.
THIS ENTRY FROM LONG BEACH WON THIS YEAR'S MAYOR'S TROPHY.
AGAIN, EVERY ELEMEN OF THE DESIGN IS DONE WITH FLOWERS OR PLANT PARTS.
FOR INSTANCE, LOOK AT THE STRATA ALONG THE CLIFFS HERE.
THAT'S ALL DONE WITH FLOWER SEEDS, DIFFERENT COLORS.
OKAY, RIGHT OVER HERE WE HAVE THE FLOAT FROM THE JAPANESE-AMERICAN FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY.
ONCE AGAIN, THEIR ENTRY HAS INCORPORATED BAMBOO INTO THE DECORATIVE AND STRUCTURAL DESIGN.
IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU CAN SEE A SMALL OPEN AREA AT THE BASE OF THE BAMBOO.
THIS IS WHERE THE FLOAT'S DRIVER LOOKS OUT TO STEER DURING THE PARADE.
ALL OF THE FLOATS USE FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINES.
WILCOX! YOU'RE A HARD MAN TO FIND.
I'M ALMOST SORRY IT'S OVER.
AND BY TOMORROW, THE RES WILL BE TAKEN TOTALLY APART.
BUT ONCE THE AREA IS CLEARED, WE'LL JUST START FROM SCRATCH, AND ROUND AND ROUND IT GOES.
IT'S TOO BAD LON WASN'T AROUND TO SEE HIS SISTER'S PERFORMANCE.
IT'S OVER, COLEEN.
WHY DON'T YOU MAKE IT EASY ON BOTH OF US, HUH? I WISH THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT BETWEEN US.
AIN'T IT ALWAYS THE WAY? BUT THAT'S THE STORY OF MY LIFE.
COME ON, KID.
ALL RIGHT, THEY USED OVER 20,000 CARNATIONS IN THIS NEXT FLOA WE'RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT.
EVERYBODY WANNA TRY AND STAY TOGETHER, PLEASE? THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF TIME-- ALL RIGHT, HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! - [ Gunshot ] - [ Visitors Screaming ] GET SOMEWHERE HIGH WHERE YOU CAN SEE THEM.
HOWIE! ALL RIGHT, COLT, HOWIE'S GOING OUT WITH ME.
YOU BETTER STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE IF YOU EVER WANNA SEE YOUR PARTNER ALIVE AGAIN.
YOU HEAR, COLT? SORRY, COLEEN, THE PARADE IS OVER.
HARV, I CAN'T GET OVER HOW GOOD YOU LOOK.
YEAH.
THE KID AND I WERE REAL WORRIED ABOUT YOU WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT YOUR ACCIDENT.
SPARE ME, SEAVERS, 'CAUSE WHEN I GET OU OF THIS BEDPAN PALACE, I'M GONNA HAVE A FEW SURPRISES FOR YOU.
HEY, NOW, HARVEY, WAIT A MINUTE.
YOU CAN'T BLAME ME.
I TOLD YOU TO LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE YOU CROSS THE STREET.
HA! RICHLY COMIC.
THE LEAST YOU COULD HAVE DONE IS GIVE ME A LITTLE BIT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT COLEEN WILCOX.
I WISH I COULD HAVE.
I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE COLEEN WAS A HIT LADY FOR THE MOB.
YEAH.
ACCORDING TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, SHE WAS THEIR ACE.
YEAH, WELL, SHE REALLY HAD ME FOOLED.
DON'T FEEL BAD, KID.
IT HAPPENS TO THE BEST OF US.
YEAH, AND THERE'S ONE THING I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND.
IF LON WILCOX PICKED ALL THOSE WINNERS, WELL, HOW COME HE NEVER SHOWED UP TO COLLECT HIS MONEY? 'CAUSE WHEN I FOUND OU HE WASN'T DEAD, THAT HE WAS REALLY A WITNESS IN THE RELOCATION PROGRAM, I HAD THE FEDS THROW A NET AROUND HIM IN A HURRY.
YOU SAVED HIS LIFE.
YEAH.
HE CALLED ME TO SAY, "THANKS.
" ALL HE HAD TO SAY WAS "THANKS"? NO.
HE TOLD ME TO TAKE ATLANTA AND THE POINTS.
WHICH REMINDS ME.
TAKE THAT $10,000 YOU OWE ME AND GO FIND A HAIRDRESSER NAMED SYDNIE.
YOU TELL HIM TO TAKE THE POINTS AND BET THE UNDER.
YOU REMEMBER THAT? SURE.
THANKS.
