Yeah, and until the waiting on of guards knows how many goons with guns? God knows and so does this little pal Eugene because Rockfeller and i staked out Mick's appartment last night.
We stoked out stoke out stoke Ok anyway, we were watching the comings and goings to the guards.
From 3 to 4 AM, there is only 2 guards in position.
That gives us a 1 hour strike zone.
Exactly, there's only 2 of them and there's 6 of us, ok so we use the thumbprint, we sneak up on 'em and we disarm them.
Yeah, I don't know chief.
How may we explain a gunshot? Squatch, we can do this thing, all right we are street guys! Remember when i said you were a Henius? uh, yes You are an idiot! I grew up in the streets of Kartahinas, surrounded by dogs and murdurers.

Has he ever been raped? That between him and his god.
I need a volunteer.
You.
Me? Miss, come on please.
What's your name? - Esperanza.
- Ifperanda.
That means "hope", right? Si.
Well, "Hope", you'll be kind enough to help me demonstrate some of my Self-Defense techniques? - I'd be delighted.
- Ok.
Let me have your arm.
Can you believe this loser, come on.
Pay attention, "street guy".
Now, imagine I'm taking it behind you like this.
Nice moves.
Maybe i should sit down and let you teach class Maybe you should.
I'm a real cool guy.
I pretend to know how to fight so I can hit a hot chick, yeah.
I mean, what a loser! I thought he was a cop delivering public speaking.
Oh! Positions! Cover the table! Oh esperanza, hey! What's he doing here? Hawthorne agreed to give us our own private lesson.
- These here are your friends? - Yeah.
You, naughty girl! Sometimes naughty, sometimes nice, I don't like to talk about this publicly, but Some years ago, for a week, I was at head of a local security for Frank Sinatra Junior And I learned a lot of valuable lessons as far as taking care Look, we'd love to hear the "wherefores" and "why not" of your travels and adventures, but can we cut to hard stage, please? We need to learn how to disarm two guys with guns.
You.
Stand up, please.
Take this gun and hold it on me.
Like this? Pressure points and the element of surprise.
Thank you.
That was impressive.
I'd like to see you try that on my friend Rockefeller butt here.
Pressure points element of surprise.
Fantastic.
He's so cool.
Bringing in the sea Unfortunatly, the element of surprise is used not on me.
My training is suggest to be prepared for any eventualities.
No matter how sudden.
Question Sir.
You say you're not susceptible to the element of surprise.
Well, that's the case how then do you explain this Excellent, excellent! Do you want to play games or want learn how to fight? No, no, I want to learn how to fight.
Ok, here is what we gonna do.
I'm gonna give you all intercourse in the art of defense and attack.
When you're done you will no longer be people.
You will be trained weapons.
Are you ready? Well done people, good, hard work, very very nice.
Come on over here, let's talk about it.
Hawthorne, thank you, you are wonderfull.
Well So are you.
Well Well Well well well well Bravo Thank you, thank you Hawthorne for covering some very basic and rudimentary ground and if you just step aside, now I'll take over and we will deal with some other final more sophisticated points of self defense okay, but you deserve hand thank you.
What are you gonna teach'em? Well, I'd like to focus more on the "mental preparazione".
Kind of in the Eastern philosphy so you might not understand.
Yeah, eastern left it's boulevard.
I'd love to see what you got.
Ok, well then meet me outside in 5 minutes, and I'll show you what I've got Like in 20, ok? Count to even 30 or I just I'll call you, actually, when I am ready.
Welcome! The mind my friends is a terrible thing to waste.
And if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
Excuse me.
What is this? Hot coals, my dear esperanza, a bed of hot coals.
And what are we supposed to do with these hot coals, please tell.
We're gonna walk across them bare foot Yeah, I'm gonna pass on that.
How is walking across hot coals gonna help us do what we have to do? Because it will mentally prepare us to do what we have to do.
If you think you can do it, you can do it.
I saw it on "Survivor".
They use special television coals! Okay, I'm gonna go.
Okay, see that doesn't surprise me.
I knew you wouldn't get it! Wanna walk me to my car? Sure.
But Esperanza Okay I'm walking on hot coals now! Oh Jesus, yes! Esperanza! I am alive! My soul is free! Oh my God, I'm in intense physical pain! Eugene! It's open.
How are the dogs ? Tender Listen, I have a friendly advice Keep your eyes on the price.
What? After we rob Mick Jagger we're gonna have so many broads, they're gonna have to put velvet robes around your ass.
What are you saying? Ok.
I'm saying Forget about Esperanza for now, okay? We can't afford to have you distracted.
Esperanza? What are you talking about, Esperanza? All that I'm saying is that when guys stop thinking with their brains and they start thinking with their old pitily dunk, they do stupid things.
Okay, well, thank you very much doctor "Joys Brothers", okay? But Eugene Gurkin never done nothing stupid for any broad! You got jealous and burnt your feet off! I did what I did to help the K.
O.
P mentally prepared to rob mick jagger, that's it! No! You did what you did because Esperanza is got rock that can be seen from space! Okay! A: my relationship with esperanza is purely professional, okay? And B: even if I had feelings for the young lady, which I don't! They would not be based on mere physic qualities! I apologize.
Are we done here? We're done! Allright guys listen up! With this key, the code and the thumb print, I'll get in and leave the door prompt open for the rest of you.
When I go in and say "Ho, it's so good to be home!", that's the cue for you guys to rush in and descend the guards.
Any questions? Are the guards mentally ill? What? How are they supposed to believe that you are mick jagger in that ridiculous mask? This mask is only supposed to get me pass the security cameras Once I'm face to face, it serves an entirely different purpose.
Excuse me but, what is the purpose of that? Shokin' on! That thumb don't look natural! Exactly! That's part of the masterplan brother Butts! Hey, wait a minute! you're not the real mick jagger, and that thumb is very confusing to me, and kaboum! We're on top of 'em, we surprise and pressure points, and the mental preparation that is derived for walking on hot coals which is a thrill that only Louis and I have experience.
Jackass and jackass Jr.
Hey Squatch Squatch.
If something happen to me up there, right? I want you to put on my tomb stone in big fat letters.
"Died robbing Mick Jagger" So at least people know I went for it, all right? And if you die and we get away.
That tomb stone will draw unnecessary attention to us.
- Cry not loud, Gary - What? I cannot make a promiss and then he is dead, I cannot keep the promiss and we should talk about it now.
- And do not call me Gary - Ok, let's do this thing.
Euh, seriously, what about that tomb stone? Wo, wo, wo, wait a minute! That's Nath Pran, that's Mick's housewife.
I recognize him from TV.
Oh oh, mayday! I think he sees the mask.
Damn straight, he's got four security guards with him.
Why four? They were supposed to be two! Ok let's go back to "Glickmans" and re-think this thing, come on, go.
- Hey Mick Jagger! Can we get a picture? - No, no men i'm not Mick, I'm just a guy who wear a mask.
Well I know, I'm not the hell wasted! - Come on, get a photo of me and Mick Jagger, all right? Get off me! It's Mick Jagger We will take it from here Sir.
You! Stop.
What it this all about? Sir, I'm gonna ask you once and only once.
What are you doing in front of Mick Jagger's building dressed as Mick Jagger? Euh Euh I'm a superfan? That was a disaster.
It was a start a hedge fund.
- Those guys make millions! - What's the hedge fund? - I have no idea.
- What are we doing here? This is where Mick's guards hang out and there are two at the bar, right now.
What we get to figure out is what they up security.
But listen even if there are four now.
- there is six of us, right? - Two guards, four guards, and an unexpecting boy in the white suit.
We do not do what we are doing.
Yeah Euge', it's time to give up.
I don't know Squatch, maybe you're right.
Hey would you boys mind if we bought the lady a drink? No thank you.
Oh come on, just one drink.
Maybe you didn't heard the lady, she said "no thank you".
I wasn't talking to you.
- So what do you say? - Come on honey let's go.
Pressure points and surprise! Yeah, and the exactitude of mental preparation that only walking on hot coals provide.
we are the knights! Thank you street guy.
That was some pretty sweet stuff.
- Have you do any security work? - So? If you're interrested, give me a call.
Gentlemen, let us please refrain from any outwork display of emotion, But note that one Rockefeller Butts was just offering a employment to Mick Jagger apartment.
and The Knights of Prosperity are back in buisness! Yes! These are some tasty ass peanuts! Allo? Hi, Hawthorne, how are you? Hey Eugene.
How much does a massages cost? I'm think about investing in one.
I don't know Squatch Thank you so much, bye! That was Hawthorne.
He wanted me to go with him to the "pokonos".
Good to get a lot of nice ressources out there.
You think I would go with him? Who kind of woman do you think I am, Eugene? I don't know.
You guys seem prety friendly, I mean If I wasn't friendly, would he teach us how to fight? Wo, yeah, right Besides, I'm looking for a new life.
The last thing I want is a new man.
Oh yeah you want to focus, keep your eyes on the price.
Exactly.
The question is: Will those two guys ever try to pick up another girl in a bar again? - Not this bar! - No, no! No, I think the real question is how come they ask Rockeffeller to be part of the security, him and not me? Because I'm a three hundred pound black guy.
Here is to the black guy!
