Yeah, why would we do that, Jack? What? I'm alone here? Nick, he might have a point.
Enlighten me.
It's time we clear the air.
And I got shit out.
You ain't nothin' but a punk bitch! Shut up! Now, we don't call audibles in the middle of a job.
We get out of dodge.
I'm not going to prison on account of you assholes.

Yeah, we're getting divorced, and she's going | to go live with her father in Hawaii.
First, this morning, and now this.
It's that bad, huh? So bad in my house that you'd rather go | live with your father.
That's tough to swallow knowing what I know.
It's a lot of bullshit, too, isn't it? Nick.
Ok, come on, let's put our cards on the table.
| This is not about missing daddy.
Nick Ok, Tammy does not want to go live with her father, | but oh, she is her daddy's girl.
Listen to this! Be quiet.
What are you saying? You know what i'm saying.
Ask her.
Oh, Nick, she's not, she's not like that.
Her father is what he is and he said what he said I regret that.
I really do.
But Tammy is not her father.
She's not.
I don't have to ask her.
Perhaps I'll just step out Sit down.
Now, look, you and me, | we got like nothing in common, except maybe one thing--your mama.
Now, I'm not going any place, and you're not going any place, | so here we are.
What do we do? Fine.

A lawyer called.
A Martin someone.
Called the house? He knew my name, the dog's name.
"How's chin-chin" he says, for god sake.
Don't worry.
It won't happen again.
You give them your cell phone.
| I don't want these people calling my house.
I mean it.
I'm going back to bed.
An injury like this, there are always concerns for internal organs.
We want to keep her 24 hours for observation.
But right now, signs are good.
So you're saying she's going to be ok? We're doing everything we can.
I suggest you both go home, get a change of clothes, and come back in 2 hours.
Doc, whatever you need.
Whatever cost, whoever you have to fly in, you do that, ok? Can we see her? Thanks a lot, we appreciated it.
| Good night.
Who are they? Nobody.
They're business associates.
You gave them a key? No, I didn't give them a key.
They came through the gate.
Oh, so they just let themselves in? Oh, something you seem | to know a lot about these days.
Ugh.
Nick.
Jesus, Nick! My house! No one saw us, Dog.
My step-daughter saw you, Dog.
How, you, of all people, ought to know better.
As soon as you called, we wanted to come over.
We were just trying to be here for you, Nick.
| That's all.
Now look, Jack, we agreed, no houses, no exceptions! You assholes have crossed the line! You crossed the line, asshole, | when you put your hands on me! Come on.
| Don't you do that shit again! No, I just did his ass a favor.
Black man parked in this neighborhood at this hour? Don't do me no favor! Ok, ok.
Wanda.
- How's she gonna be? | - They don't know.
Is there anything we can do for you, Nick? Like what, Jack? What? I was just askin'.
How's the kid taking it? We still got a decision to make.
G.
I.
Jane here thinks this can't wait.
Forget you, Gabo.
All right, I'm sympathetic.
I have a wife that's pregnant, out to here.
But business is business.
Now Wanda or no Wanda, that little crack head ain't gonna walk quietly | into the sunset, and that's a god damn fact.
Izzy would not Izzy has got to go, and one of us has to do it.
Izzy won't turn on us.
You willin' to take that risk? This is izzy we're talkin' about here! Hey, listen, listen.
| I think elmo's on to something, man.
Izzy gets popped on a drug beef, what then? Exactly.
He gonna give all of us up.
Names, addresses, phone numbers, the whole 9.
I don't like it, but it's true.
Elmo's right.
First things first.
The score.
There's a problem.
Problem? Cash and stones.
A slam dunk, right? It ain't? I don't know.
| I'm going to find out.
Well, maybe we go with you.
Well, maybe you don't.
Right.
You go.
Yeah, right.
You go on, zip over, see your people, and then hurry on back.
Yeah, we'll watch your kid.
We'll be right here until you get back.
Go.
Yeah, boss rule.
Go with kids.
You don't look at her.
You don't talk to her.
You stay out here until I get back.
The chinese mob? My people are certain.
I need this money.
Uh-uh.
Not this money.
Yes, this money.
I don't give a shit who these people are.
| That's my money.
Mine.
Joe six-pack takes the loss, files a claim, double the value, gets on with his life, thinks we've done him a favor, but not these people.
We take their money, they will come looking for us and they will find you, me, all of us, the crew.
And then, they will go after our families.
This is bullshit, Rozzy.
Somebody saw you, Nick.
Think.
If the trick had gone right, you were ghosts in the wind.
Ok, we take the risk, but it didn't this time.
You're exposed.
You.
Your family.
All our families.
How much longer? I'll be right there.
10 minutes.
No more.
You said you'd be back in 1/2 hour.
10 minutes.
It's been 9 months since we scored.
- I understand | - 85 per man on the stones, you said.
Possible 6 figures! - Now we're looking at, what? 29? | - Yes.
With me eating half my upfront.
The quality's just not there.
You want guarantees, get a day job.
Punch a clock.
Let life pass you by.
It's not us.
I ain't goin' back with the stones didn't pan out.
| No cash.
Forget it, Roz.
Forget it.
I can't.
My guys are on their backs.
For me, the cash is an unacceptable risk.
I leave, my black ass is gone.
It's over for us.
Forever.
I'll knock another 10 points off my share, but the cash? Nick, I wish I could.
If you're playing me, Roz.
I wouldn't do that and you know it.
I'll get the money back.
No one will be the wiser.
This is wrong.
Shit's not worth dying for, Nick.
No score is, right? 2 minutes.
2 minutes.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Say what? Someone saw us.
The risks are different this time, and not just for us.
For our families.
You know what? | I, for one, am willing to take that risk.
You give your money back if you want to.
| Mine goes home with me.
It's already gone.
What? When did this become a democracy, nigger? Where you been? My money out of my pocket! That's your money.
How much is it? Stones didn't pan out like we hoped.
It was a bad day all around.
This ain't right, Nick.
It is what it is.
I'm out, too.
Thanks for trying to protect us, Nick.
I can't go home like this.
I got people with their hands out | as soon as I show my face.
People I can't dance with anymore.
Same here.
What the hell are you talking about? You ain't got no family.
I got a loan shark, man.
Ok, I get it.
I get it.
Nick You always got something on the bubble.
I know you, bro.
You got money.
That's something.
Something good.
Don't you think we should have stayed at the hospital? The doctor said 2 hours.
If it was you, she would have stayed.
She wouldn't have left.
Not if it was you.
You're right.
You're right.
Your mother's better at this.
She's way better.
Do you want to bring Tammy here? I got room.
She needs to see her mom.
Ok, you know best.
When it comes to this, I'm into negative numbers.
I told my people I had a line on a new trick.
Why'd you do that? All broke and pissed off ain't working.
One bad gig.
No.
You mess with a man's money, he tends to forget if you're friend or foe.
Besides, it's like you said, Roz.
This family thing Nick.
We don't chase jobs.
Money, that's all this is about.
For all of us.
True believer crap? It'll only hurt ya.
I say screw 'em.
Nobody made these guys your responsibility.
Hey, the thing about the, um The thing you used to talk about.
Yeah.
You told me to eat shit.
Changed my mind.
Uh, look, um, I gotta go.
Give me some information.
| Call me back in 90 minutes, ok? I gotta go Hey, doc? We tried to contact you.
No one could reach you.
Your wife's condition took a turn.
What? We believe she had a laceration of the heart muscle.
By the time we discovered it, she had expired.
Tammy! Ah! Ah! Tammy! Don't touch her! No! No! Hello? Vincent.
Yes, uncle? My property is being returned to me.
I'm happy, uncle.
None the less, my offer to you stands.
20% is yours.
The party making the arrangements is in New Orleans.
Do you understand? I understand.

Ok.
I want you guys to stay in town for a couple of days, ok? Get yourselves some hotel rooms? I want to talk about this gig I outlined in the garage.
Nick.
You all right? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm ok.
I'm cool.
Wanda died.
She bled out.
Ok.
Ok.
We need to talk about our payday.
No, no, Nick.
No, come on now.
No.
Y-You need to deal with what you're feeling, all right? Just-- Why don't you step down.
