Everyone gets to the elevator at the end of the hall. Rush
presses the button to go down.
So wait... he shot himself in the

Fell off the balcony.
The elevator arrives. Everyone gets on.
Why would he do something so
He always was a sore loser.
The elevator doors close.

surfer van from across the street. Rush and Fat Cat get
inside a black Pontiac Firebird. Fat Cat drives away. Polly
EXT. STRIP CLUB - NIGHT
A strip club called The Fat Pussy. Neon legs in fishnets
doing high kicks. Fat Cat pulls into the parking lot. He and
Rush get out.
Polly drives the surfer van around the back of the club. She
gets out and walks to the back of the van. She opens the
doors and climbs inside.
Cricket overdoses next to the dead Jasmine and Trixie. Polly
pulls out the leftover landmines she collected from the
beach and spreads them all over the van.
Polly gives Cricket one last look before she leaves the van
and shuts the doors. Polly walks away, but some
seven-foot-tall goon smoking a cigar walks up to her and
grabs her arm.
I don't work here.
That's what they all say.
The cigar goon drags Polly away before she even gets a
chance to turn the van off.
INT. STRIP CLUB
The goon pulls Polly into the club and strips her down. Her
phone is in her pants, which are now on the floor in the
Fat Cat walks around the club. He walks over to a V.I.P.
Booth, where a stripper gives Rush a lap dance while he's
asleep with a bottle of vodka in his hand. Fat Cat shakes
Rush, what are you doing? A
beautiful girl's giving you a lap
dance and you fall asleep on her?
Get up, man! The night is young!
Here, follow me to the back. I got
something that'll wake you up.
Shabby, shady back office. Dim lighting. Ratty, stained rug
on a hardwood floor. No windows. Fat Cat sits with his feet
up on a desk, smoking a cigar. Fat Cat snaps his fingers.
Polly and two other strippers walk in holding platters with
tiny bags of cocaine on them. Polly sees Rush. Rush sees
I'll take number one, and that
little bag of white stuff she's
Rush slaps some cash on the table and stands up. He grabs
the cocaine off Polly's platter and puts it in his pocket.
Rush knocks the platter out of Polly's hand and pulls her
out of the room. Polly looks down and sees a pistol in
INT. PRIVATE ROOM
Rush snorts cocaine inside one of those private dance rooms.
There's a razor blade and white lines on the table. Polly
stares at Rush.
Rush lines up some coke for Polly, then invites her to snort
it. Polly leans down to snort. Rush puts his gun to the back
of her head.
Polly snorts some cocaine, then grabs the razor blade and
slashes Rush's eyes. Polly escapes while Rush bleeds all
over his bandanna. Rush chases Polly into the dressing room.
Polly hides behind a vanity. She sees her phone sticking out
of her boiler suit across the room. Rush kicks the door
Rush looks for Polly all over the dressing room. Polly
watches Rush move and tries to get to her phone without Rush
catching her. Polly sees a platter on the ground. She picks
up the platter and throws it across the room. The platter
hits the dressing room door and makes a loud noise. Rush
points his gun at the noise. Polly runs from behind the
vanity and snatches her boiler suit on the way out the back
door. Rush chases Polly out the back door.
Outside the club, Polly pulls the phone out of her boiler
suit right as Rush shows up. Rush shoots the phone out of
Polly's hand and breaks it into a million pieces. Polly
looks pissed. She runs behind the surfer van as Rush shoots
at her some more.
Cricket kicks open the back doors of the surfer van. Rush
runs into the door, then staggers backwards and looks up.
Cricket's face is pale, his eyes are sunken, and his nose is
bleeding, but he's alive.
Where am I?
Rush grabs Cricket and drags him around the van. Polly and
Cricket stare at each other. Rush shoots at Polly's foot as
she climbs inside the passenger's side window. Rush shoots
through the van. Polly crawls across the passenger's seat
and gets into the driver's seat as a bullet destroys the
rear-view mirror. Polly throws the van in drive and screeches
Get her ass!
Cricket chases the van. Rush looks down and sees landmines
on the ground. Realizing what's about to happen, he runs
back inside the dressing room.
Cricket chases the surfer van. Polly hangs a U-turn and
floors it back toward the strip club. Polly jumps out of the
van. Cricket catches her and tumbles into an alley under a
bright neon sign.
Rush busts down the door into Fat Cat's office. Fat Cat
putts golf balls into a bound stripper's mouth.
We gotta get the hell outta here,
Can't you see I'm busy?
Rush grabs Fat Cat's arm and yanks him out of the office.
EXT. STRIP CLUB
Fat Cat and Rush run out of the strip club and jump in Fat
Cat's Pontiac Firebird.
It better be the end fuckin' times,
Rush Brown, or I swear to God-
Watch the road!
The surfer van is about to crash right into Fat Cat's car.
Fat Cat swerves out of the way. Rush watches the surfer van
crash into the side of the strip club and blow up, setting
off the rest of the landmines and causing a massive
Fat Cat pulls a U-turn and stares at the explosion in
disbelief. He gets out of the car and staggers toward the
explosion, then falls to his knees.
Cricket walks up to Rush. Rush looks at him.
She got away.
CHAPTER 15- HOMO RAGE
EXT. BEACH - NIGHT
Fitz lays in the sand. His guts are still hanging out. The
life begins to leave his eyes.
Rico runs up to Fitz and scoops him up off the ground. He
throws Fitz into the Monte Carlo and floors it. Fitz keeps
nodding off during the drive. Rico slaps Fitz in the face.
I'm so tired.
Rico pulls the Monte Carlo up to Spitball's house. He drags
Fitz out of the car and blows the doorknob off with Lo
White's snub-nose revolver.
Rico runs to the bathroom and lays Fitz in the tub, then
ransacks Spitball's living room looking for the crack he
stole from Lo White's corpse. Rico finds the crack, then
brings it to the bathroom and stuffs a pipe in Fitz's mouth.
Rico lights the pipe. Fitz inhales. Fitz's eyes go wide. His
head hits the back of the tub.
Fitz smokes on his own. Rico leaves the bathroom and comes
back with a needle, thread, and a bottle of booze. Fitz
looks at him.
What are you doing?
Making shit worse.
Rico takes off his shirt and gives it to Fitz.
Rico dumps booze on Fitz's wound. Fitz screams and snatches
Rico's shirt, then bites it and screams into it. Rico goes
toward the hole in Fitz's stomach with the needle and
thread. Fitz backs up on reflex.
Rico stabs Fitz with the needle. Fitz screams and digs his
fingers into the tub. Rico pulls the thread through. Fitz
passes out. Rico grabs the crack pipe and sticks it back in
Fitz inhales, then comes back. Rico stabs Fitz with the
Hours later, Fitz is tweaking in a tub full of ice. Rico
sits on the floor next to the tub. He finishes the bottle of
Vodka that he poured on Fitz. Fitz jumps at nothing.
Nobody's seen a cop since
Fitz scratches at his neck like he's trying to peel the skin
off. Rico hands Fitz a cigarette and lights it for him, then
lights one for himself. Fitz leans back in the tub.
Yeah, that's right. Everything's
alright. After all, I lived to get
my million bucks another day.
I know a guy who could flip that
money and make you even richer.
Rico squints at Fitz.
You put me through hell every day,
and you wouldn't even slide me a
tip. My first wife still collects
alimony, you know.
Jesus Christ. I told you time and
time again, try finding someone you
can bang for fr-
Rico kisses Fitz on the lips. Fitz looks stunned and drops
his cigarette. Fitz kisses Rico back. Rico puts his
cigarette out on Fitz's neck.
Rico hops in the tub, spits in Fitz's asshole, humps him
really hard for about ten seconds, then finishes and
collapses on top of him.
If you tell anyone, you're dead.
Yeah. We want the wedding to be a

CHAPTER 16- FLOWERS FOR FAT CAT JOHNSON
INT. MANSION - DAY
Fat Cat's mansion in the hills. Fat Cat hits golf balls off
of a grand balcony. Bathrobe, cigar in mouth, phone between
his shoulder and his ear chatting angrily with his insurance
Rush sits on a leather recliner, feet up, drinking wine from
the bottle. Cricket sits cross-legged in a matching recliner
and flips through a magazine.
Rush offers Cricket some wine. Cricket declines. Rush shrugs
and drinks some more. He nods in silence for a second, then
looks at Cricket and points at his chest.
What's wrong with your chest?
Cricket pulls off his coat to reveal that his left hand is
inside his chest, grabbing his heart. While Cricket speaks,
we see the events from earlier that night. After Cricket
gets hit with fentanyl, he falls down on his left hand,
which pierces his chest and grabs his heart. He pumps his

heart stopped beating.
Jesus. It's really awful what Lucy
did. You could be traumatized, or

found you foaming at the mouth in
the back of a van.
Cricket feigns confusion.
The chick we played poker with.
It's her. Bring me her head, you
get a cut. We can negotiate later.
Until then, I'm layin' low. Get it?
Go fuck yourself.
Rush stares at Cricket, then laughs.
Cricket darts away into the shadows. Fat Cat clacks his
phone shut and puts it on the golf tee, then destroys it
with the golf club.
My insurance is trying to screw me
over. They say with that terrorist
on the loose, owning any property
in this town is considered a
pre-existing condition. I oughta
gut that serial bomber myself just
to get even.
Rush gives Fat Cat a death glare.
Why are you lookin' at me like
Remember when I let you borrow my
Fat Cat looks horrified. Rush laughs.
I'm fuckin' with you.
The doorbell keeps ringing. Fat Cat goes down his grand
staircase to open the door. A delivery guy shoves a bundle
of flowers in Fat Cat's face.
Flowers for Fat Cat Johnson.
I didn't order these.
The delivery guy slams the door in Fat Cat's face. Fat Cat
turns around and sees Rush standing right there.
Are you trying to wine me and dine
No. These are for my girl.
Rush takes the flowers.
Do you mind droppin' me off at her
Why don't you call a limo and make
her feel special? Maybe take her
out to dinner, sex her up a little.
For God's sake, Rush. It's 1994.
It's called bein' classy. Try it
sometime. And get your own fuckin'
girlfriend if it bothers you so
Please. I'll never land a date in
this town again. Everyone knows
what I did to my last girl's baby
Fat Cat waits a second before he hits Rush in the stomach
with his golf club.
CHAPTER 17- JEEPERS CREEPERS
EXT. BEACH - DAY
Leak and Spitball are still buried up to their necks in the
sand. Spitball screams every time a wave submerges his head
and stings his eyes with salt water. Leak looks annoyed.
Two kids are playing Frisbee at the crowded beach. Kid 1
throws the Frisbee. Kid 2 goes to catch it, but he misses.
The beach is so busy he can't find it. He finds one of
Polly's landmines and decides it will do.
Kid 2 throws Kid 1 the landmine. Kid 1 goes to catch it and
explodes right in front of Leak and Spitball. Everyone on
the beach panics and freaks out.
The explosion and the stampede free the sand around Leak and
Spitball. Leak escapes and tries to run off alone, but
Spitball grabs her ankle.
Leak turns around and sees Spitball staring at her with his
bleached, bloody eyes. Spitball uses Leak to drag himself
out of the hole.
INT. SPITBALL'S HOUSE - NIGHT
Leak leads Spitball, who's grabbing her wrist with white
knuckles, to the front door. Leak notices the doorknob has
been blown off, but pushes the door open anyway.
Spitball lets go of Leak and starts feeling around his
house. Leak watches him.
I can't fuckin' see!
Spitball starts to destroy the place. Leak sneaks away.
Fitz and Rico wake up in the bathroom. They look at the
door, then at each other, then back at the door.
Rico carefully gets out of the tub and sneaks over to the
bathroom door, then puts his ear up against it.
Leak is in another room, quickly packing clothes inside a
duffle bag. Spitball hears her. Leak tries to walk out the
front door, but Spitball grabs her.
What are you doing?
I'm going to check the mail.
Spitball pulls Leak closer.
Leak. Baby. Sweetheart. I'm blind
and I'm broke. Everything I had was
in that van. You gotta work extra
hard for me so we can make ends
Trixie and Jasmine died doing your
stunts. Help yourself.
Leak rips herself from Spitball's grip and tries to walk
away, but Spitball pins her against the bathroom door.
You're not leavin' me. If you leave
me I'll kill you and then kill
You're hurting me!
And you're hurting me! But you
don't see me cryin'!
Leak pulls out mace and sprays Spitball right in the eyes.
Spitball drops Leak, sputtering and crying. Leak runs out
the front door.
Leak trips over something and falls down in the front yard.
She turns around and sees Lucy, legs smashed, clinging on to
life at Spitball's front door.
Leak and Lucy stare at each other. Spitball shows up in the
doorway. Lucy tries to crawl away, but Spitball grabs her
ankle and drags her inside.
Spitball drags Lucy along the ground as she kicks and
screams, He feels around the kitchen until he gets to the
oven. He throws Lucy in the oven, cranks up the heat, and
sits with his back against the oven as Lucy bangs on the
door. Spitball's eyes look freakish.
You thought I was playing? I'm
gonna blow my brains out up against
the oven door and kill us both.
Lucy protests by screaming and pounding on the door even
harder. Spitball gets up and feels around his house.
Spitball pulls a briefcase off the living room table. Lucy
gets the oven door open and starts to crawl out. Spitball
rushes back over and crams Lucy back inside the oven, then
sits against it and starts assembling his sniper rifle. Rico
hands Spitball Maggotina's snub-nose revolver.
Here, use this.
Spitball takes the revolver and puts it in his mouth, then
Spitball tries to get up and point the gun at Rico, but Rico
wrestles him for it.
The gun goes off. A bullet ricochets off of a hanging pot.
The force of the bullet brings a bunch of pots and pans down
on Rico's head, jarring him enough for the gun to fall from
Rico falls on his ass and rubs his head. He and Spitball sit
there in silence for a second before they start laughing.
They laugh and laugh and laugh while Lucy continues to bang
on the oven.
It's so foolish what we're doin' to
each other, Rico. You're all I got
left. Maggotina's dead, my bitches
are dead, and my main bitch will
leave me if I let her outta the
Rico looks past Spitball into the oven and sees Lucy. Lucy
stares back at him as her skin begins to cook.
I'm sorry. I can't believe I was so
easily manipulated by these fucking
Hey, buddy. We all make mistakes.
Let's hug it out.
Rico and Spitball embrace, naked. Rico looks at Lucy as she
roasts alive. Lucy presses her middle finger up against the
oven door. The skin on her middle finger falls off as she
Rico doesn't see Leak peeking in through the kitchen window.
Leak runs around the side of Spitball's house. She picks up
a big rock and smashes the power box on the wall.
Inside the house, all the lights go off.
Looks like someone didn't pay the
I'm too broke to keep the lights on
Big deal. I know somewhere we can
get money quick.
Rico walks into the bathroom, now wearing clothes, and shuts
the door behind him. Fitz is passed out in the tub.
Fitz doesn't move. Rico walks up to Fitz and shakes him.
Fitz is still silent. Rico scoops up a handful of ice cubes
and starts throwing them at Fitz's forehead. Fitz wakes up.
Shhhh shush. I'm leavin' for a
little while. Stay put. Behave
yourself. Don't go into the light.
Rico leaves. Fitz lights a cigarette and smokes it.

Rico, Spitball, Suzie, and Jinx are at a roulette table. The
dealer spins the wheel. As Suzie talks, we see the
Polly and Cricket are on the roof. They get to the point
right above where Cricket broke the window jumping out on
acid. It's covered by plastic and tape. Cricket bends down
and slices the plastic with his sword. Polly takes Cricket's
hands, and Cricket swings her through the ripped plastic. He
climbs in after her. They open up Lucy's fridge and see a
bunch of tabs of smiley-face acid. They look at each other
with wide eyes.
Yeah, the whole club went up in
smoke. Crazy thing is, at this
point hardly anybody's batting an
eye. The serial bomber hits the
hottest club in town, and here we
are, out having a good time like
they don't even exist. You think
they take that personally? You
think that's why they're gettin'
crazy, 'cause no one's paying
attention to them? My God, no one
even knows what they look like.
They could be anyone, anywhere,
fuck, they could be here as we
The marble lands on 11.
Fuck it all!
Suzie slams on the table. Jinx and Rico collect their chips.
Jinx looks at Rico.
Didn't you bet on red?
Rico nods to Spitball.
He bet on black.
How come he can't get 'em himself?
I already told you the man's blind.
Oh, sorry. I don't listen good.
Jinx says I gotta let other people
talk instead of running my mouth so
much. She says my mouth gets me
into trouble, but that's why I have
her. You love me, don't you, Jinx?
Of course you do.
Please place your bets.
Everyone places their bets.
Hey, blind guy. What's your deal?
You had bad eyes since birth?
Rico picks up two chips and leans in toward Spitball.
How about ten on even?
Spitball nods. Rico puts two chips on even, then slides a
third chip, worth a hundred, from under his sleeve. The
hundred chip sits under the two ten chips. The dealer spins
Bets are now closed.
Like, do you know what colors look
I've been blind since last night.
Shit, really? What happened?
Spitball sighs. Rico pats him on the back.
I ended up on the beach, buried up
to my neck. Couldn't move a muscle.
This fat bastard I know took a
knife and sliced my eyelids off,
one after the other, then he kicked
sand in my face. Being an
ex-marine, I've been tortured
before, so it wasn't that bad. But

The marble lands on 31. Jinx and Suzie are looking at
Spitball, but Rico looks at the wheel.
Rico, with his right hand, quickly takes his hundred chip
from underneath the two chips, then puts that same hand on
Spitball's shoulder to comfort him. Jinx notices.
I'm sorry I asked. Me and my big
mouth, right Jinx?
Jinx doesn't answer. She stares at Rico. Rico stares at her.
Jinx whispers something to Suzie. Suzie goes from curious to
angry. She slams her hands on the table and stands up.
No, I am gonna make a scene!
Suzie reaches across the table and grabs Rico's arm.
Show me your hand.
Rico opens his hand. There's nothing there.
I don't believe this. Dealer?!
Didn't see anything.
What do they pay you for?!
Suzie storms off. Jinx follows her. Suzie walks up to a
casino staff guy and points at Rico.
Excuse me. That guy's cheating.
That's the tenth time I heard from
you today. Get lost.
Just watch the damn tapes if you
don't believe me.
Yeah, lemme tell you how to do your
The staff guy walks away. Suzie grabs his arm.
Where's Rush? I wanna talk to him.
How should I know?
The staff guy rips his arm away, then walks off. Jinx runs
up to Suzie. Suzie turns around and sees Rico smiling at
her. Suzie flips off Rico, then walks away with Jinx.
EXT. STREET - DUSK
Fat Cat flies down the road in the Firebird with a cigar
hanging out of his mouth. Rush holds his flowers and looks
at his watch. Fat Cat pulls the Firebird up to the charred
remains of Lucy's aunt's house. Rush gets out of the car. He
drops his flowers. Rush pulls out his phone and calls Lucy.
INT. SPITBALL'S HOUSE - NIGHT
Leak busts down the front door and runs into the kitchen,
then yanks on the oven door
INT. CASINO PENTHOUSE - NIGHT
Music blares. Cricket's on the bed, staring at Polly as she
dances around the room. He sees tracers around Polly and all
these crazy shapes.
I can't stop looking at you.
Polly dances over to the stereo. Lines of coke and a credit
card. Polly snorts some coke, then dances to the bed and
holds out her hand for Cricket to grab.
Let's go gambling.
What if Rush sees us?
Then we'll leave.
Polly pulls Cricket off the bed. Cricket stands sheepishly
and rubs his hands together. Polly pulls a bottle of Xanax
off of Lucy's nightstand.
Take some of these and calm down.
Cricket downs a handful of Xanax.
INT. CASINO - NIGHT
Polly and Cricket push past people in the casino. Polly gets
more excited as the night goes on, but Cricket gets
increasingly agitated. The casino around him twists and
warps. Polly looks at Cricket and sees he's sweating.
Cricket sees Polly as a twisted abomination.
A roulette wheel spins. A marble clacks between the pockets.
The marble lands on four. Cricket looks at the marble,
scared out of his mind. He looks at the table as the dealer,
a warped monster, reaches to collect the chips. He looks at
Rico as he flicks a thousand chip onto even. Rico looks at
Are you alright?
Cricket says nothing. Polly looks at Rico.
He's foreign. He don't know no
Cricket stands up on the table. He walks up to the dealer
and grabs his face.
EXT. CASINO - NIGHT
Under a palm tree outside the casino, Polly crouches next to
Cricket, who's rocking back and forth. Cricket looks at his
hands. His fingers dissolve into insane shapes. Polly grabs
Don't look at your hands.
Man, I'm messed up.
You're fine. You just caught bad
vibrations from that fatty at
Polly turns around. Rico and Spitball stand behind her. Rico
pulls out Polly's cell phone and dangles it in front of her
Take that back.
Polly stands up and pats her pockets, dumbfounded.
Wait a minute. I recognize your
voice. That was you at the beach.
Spitball gets up in Polly's face.
Where's my van?
I thought you were blind.
Spitball grabs Polly by her neck and picks her up off the
ground. Polly kicks and struggles. She knocks Spitball's
sunglasses off of his head to reveal Spitball's wide-open
I'm not gonna ask you again.
In a split-second, Cricket crouches on Spitball's shoulder
with his sword to his throat. A drop of blood leaks down
Spitball's neck. Spitball drops Polly. Polly looks at Rico
and sticks out her hand for her phone.
My phone, fatty.
Rico tosses Polly her phone.
Cricket gets off of Spitball's back. Polly looks at her
phone, then back at Rico as she puts it in her pocket.
I think we can help each other,
fatty. Either that dealer's dumb as
bricks, or you and I have what it
takes to walk outta here
We'll be lucky if we can make a
Yeah, past-posting. Poker's where
the money's at, and collusion is a
lot less obvious.
Rico thinks for a second.
I'm in. On one condition.
Rico walks over to Cricket and looks deep into his dinner
plate eyes. Cricket freaks out. Rico looks at Polly.
I'll have what he's having.
Rico and Polly shake hands. Rico turns to Spitball.
What do you think, Spitball?
I'm sick of this place.
Aw, come on. We just got here.
We've been here for hours.
Really? Boy, does time fly.
Take me home now.
Rico is caught in a bind. He knows he can't leave Spitball
with Fitz, but he can't just outright say it. He has a
Alright. Let's go.
Rico and Spitball walk away. Rico gives Polly a look over
his shoulder as he leaves.
CHAPTER XX- THE HIGH ROLLERS
EXT. SPITBALL'S HOUSE - NIGHT
Rico pulls up to Spitball's house. Spitball gets off the
back of the bike and walks to his front door. Rico takes his
helmet off and shouts at him.
Have a good night!
Are you going back there?
Yeah. That chick seems cool.
Dipshit. You're just asking for the
high rollers to fuck your life up.
I bet I'll be richer than you by
the end of the week.
Seriously. Your mom's gonna have to
move in with me.
Get off my property.
Rico smiles, puts his helmet back on, and drives away.
Spitball turns around and walks back toward his house. As
soon as Rico drives away, Fat Cat's Firebird violently pulls
up onto Spitball's lawn and crashes into his mailbox.
Spitball turns around, surprised.
What the fuck?!
Rush, Bloody Mary, Fat Cat, and Suzie get out of the car and
run up to Spitball's front door. Rush has an AK-47. Bloody
Mary has a machete. Fat Cat has a golf club. Suzie has a
baseball bat with nails in it. Rush shoots at the sky.
Spitball shuts his door and runs upstairs.
Oh, shit! Oh, shit! Ma!
Rush blows open Spitball's door with the AK-47. Spitball
keeps running up the stairs. Jinx appears in the upstairs
hallway and kicks Spitball down the stairs so hard blood
flies out of his mouth. Spitball tumbles down the stairs.
The high rollers take turns wailing on him, passing him
around, beating him senseless and all that. Then they
destroy his house with their weapons. Rush stops everyone by
shooting his AK-47 into the ceiling. The bullets rip up the
floor in Mama Spitzer's room. Mama Spitzer wakes up to see
the floor collapse. She grabs a revolver from her nightstand
and puts it in her waist, then shuffles out of the room. A
piggy bank falls through the ceiling and shatters on
Spitball's head. Rush grabs Spitball by the collar.
Where is she?
Rush bangs Spitball's head off the floor.
Where is she?
Lucy calls out to Rush from the oven.
Lucy?! I can hear you! Say my name,
Lucy goes from faded mumbles to bloodcurdling screams. Rush
gets up and runs into the kitchen. He slings the AK-47 over
his back and walks toward the oven. He opens the oven and
sees Lucy inside. Lucy screams in pain as soon as Rush
touches her. Rush carries Lucy toward the front door. He
looks at Fat Cat and holds out his hand. Fat Cat tosses Rush
his Firebird keys. Rush catches the keys and leaves out the
front door. Bloody Mary, Jinx, Fat Cat, and Suzie stand
above Spitball. Fat Cat leans down to talk to him.
Where can we find Julian Garcia?
I don't know what you people want
Spitball and the high rollers look up. Mama Spitzer is at
the top of the stairs, confused.
Go upstairs, ma.
Fat Cat walks up the stairs and almost breaks Mama Spitzer's
wrist yanking her down. Fat Cat pushes Mama Spitzer to the
ground and positions his golf club right next to her head.
Don't you put a hand on her!
Tell me where Julian Long is or
I'll bash your mom's brains in.
No, don't do that, please. I don't
know a Julian Garcia.
He knows you. Says he witnessed one
of the Barber's boys attempting to
Spitball has a lightbulb moment.
His real name's Salazar.
Fat Cat takes practice swings at Mama Spitzer's head while
He lives in the Deep Cradle. I'm
sure you'd find him if you asked
The high rollers wait for Spitball to say more.
Ain't that enough?!
Fat Cat puts the golf club over his shoulder.
I guess. Come on, guys.
The high rollers walk toward the front door. Spitball
struggles to stand up.
The high rollers stop and turn around. Spitball leans
against the wall.
What do you want with him?
The high rollers look at each other, then back at Spitball.
We're gonna fuck him up.
Spitball grabs a fistful of change from the piggy bank and
tosses it in the air. He fires the revolver at the coins.
Bullets bounce off the coins. Bloody Mary and Fat Cat get
shot. Jinx uses a fire poker to block a bullet from hitting
Suzie in the brain.
Jinx drags Suzie out of the house. Fat Cat and Bloody Mary
follow her. The high rollers run and limp down Spitball's
front yard and into the street. They pile into a windowless
white van on the side of the road. Bloody Mary stomps on the
gas and the van screeches away.
My God, Mary's been shot in the
head! She shouldn't be driving.
Bloody Mary takes off her weave.
My head is fine.
Hey Fat Cat. Did it hurt? When you
got shot like a bitch?
You woulda been shot too if it
