I believe in what I can touch, what I can put my hands around, like 40 million bucks.
And to get that, we need to get into Roz's house.
Well, I don't know about that, man.
That place is crawling with cops.
She was killed before she gave me the name of the guy in New York.
She keeps it in a little book.
Well, we've got 12 days to the score and we don't have the guy who puts us on the plane ? This is our best play.
It's a crime scene, bro.
There's always a way in.

He doesn't have any friends.
Oh ! What's he do ? I don't really know.
Real estate companies, corporate policies.

My daddy was preacher.
So, you got the calling early ? Well, if I did, I lost it a long time ago.
Well, then, why do you come to church ? I see you here every night last week.
I've got a lot of things on my mind.
Talking to Jesus just, Just makes me feel better.
Jesus saved my life.
I ran away when I was twelve and got into some bad trouble on the streets.
And then Reverend Bordeau found me and showed me the way.
So you're not redeemed? No, I'm afraid not.

That bitch had to know the crew, bro.
She didn't know anything.

Are you sure ? 'Cause she was the only contact, and you went and killed her.
Now we got to run through every god damned number on her cell phone, or maybe you just lost your mojo ! You hit the wrong boy.
You diss me once more and it won't matter who your uncle is.
The window was open.
I couldn't sleep.
So you're breaking into my files ! Give me that.
Give me that ! A key would have been easier.
I don't have a key.
Did mom have one ? Just leave your mom out of this, ok ? Why is this always locked ? To keep nosey little girls like you out !! Now you can go through my stuff if that's want, Tammy, or you could ask me what it is you want to know.
Did you ever lie to mom ? About what ? I don't know, anything ! Your business.
You ever lie to Keith ? Lies come in many shapes, Tam.
And sometimes we lie to protect the people that we love, you understand ? And I loved your mother.
So come on, let's go to bed.
There you go.
How big are these carts ? Thirty inches wide, four feet high, thirty-six deep.
-That's tight.
-Yeah, but it's doable.
Don't forget, we're going to have tools on us.
How long we have to be in there ? About ninety minutes, or so, that a problem ? I'll handle it.
We're gonna need, um, forties.
Ok, now they're on a GPS tracking system, but they're always going in for maintenance, so, if we were maintenance company We'll work it out.
And when you get them, disable the GPS so bump can drive them to New York.
All right? Hey, Nick, let me holler at you a second.
So look, I know that we're coming down to the final stretch, but I've got to see my little boy.
You know, I've been gone a long time, and I need a couple days.
We're eleven days out, Mo.
I need you inside.
I know, that's why I'm just gonna boost the carts and go.
Yeah, but that calls attention.
That's not how we do it ! So, then we change the rules.
Nick, I've got to see Sharona, man.
We're having issues.
I'm serious! Well, your issues are going to have to wait.
Oh, I see how it works.
Ok, no, no, so when your family has problems, you can change the rules, right ? That little white girl can id us to a murder, Nick.
But do we do what we did with Izzy ? No, we changed the rules.
You want to make a run at my daughter ? What, are you crazy ? Well, if you had never come to my house, none of this shit woulda happened.
All I'm saying to you I know exactly what you're saying, Mo, but all you do is talk.
Maybe you should go.
But let's just be clear.
If you go, don't come back.
Don't stop now, baby, train's almost at the station, come on.
Come on, honey.
Hey, you ok ? Is it something I did ? No, I'm just distracted.

Hey ! Shake his hand.
No, art, knock it off.
Damn.
Boy, you are demented.
What's the story on that double homicide over there on Perrier ? Do you know anything about that ? Whoever did it was a pro.
The department doesn't want it to get out, but there were burn marks on that woman.
I think she was tortured first.
Found residue of potassium and nitrate charcoal and sulfur on her body.
English, huh ? That's a composition of black powder meal, pyrotechnics, Chinese cracker fuses, that kind of thing ? Looks like they just wrapped that all around her and lit her up.
Are we close ? No prints.
No motive.
Nada.
Why, you on to something ? No, not hardly, no.

Go ahead.
Oh my god ! I opened your mother's safe deposit box today.
That was passed down to her from your great grandmother.
She always said she wanted you to have it.
It's an emerald ? Yes, good quality.
Hold it up to the light.
Can you see how deep the color is ? Yeah.
And the inclusions minor.
It's beautiful ! Fits ! Sort of.
You should probably keep that in a safe place.
She wore it at our wedding.
I saw the ring you gave me at the wedding.
The little gold band.
I was trying to buy you off.
I don't think it worked.
Is that what you are trying to do now ? Is that what you think ? Did she leave me anything else ? Yeah, a few other things in the safe deposit box.
You'll get them when you're older.
I dreamt about her last night.
How'd she look ? She was happy.
She was at the shore.
She had paint in her hair.
I dream about her every night.

Mine's on roaming.
You know what that costs ? You been using it to call the contacts ? All right, listen bright boy, anybody who has caller ID isn't going to answer.
And all the cops have to do is run her bill and up pops your girlfriend's number.
Good work.
