SCREEN BLACK TITLE INT. JFK AIRPORT - GATE 23 - AFTERNOON VINCENT, a handsome Irishman with a black military cut, is staring at the New York skyline. He is wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. VINCENT (V.O.) It’s been a long hard road. A lot of blood, guts, and bullets have stained this road. It all started twenty years ago. INT. PHILLIP’S MUSTANG - AFTERNOON SUB-TITLE: 20 YEARS EARLIER DETECTIVE PHILLIP SANTIAGO, a handsome Hispanic in his midtwenties sits in his car. He has a buzz cut and goatee. He is drinking a Pepsi and listening to a basketball game on the radio. RADIO ANNOUNCER (O.S.) 5 seconds left on the clock. Sanchez jumps and SLAM DUNK! Phil slams the Pepsi on the dashboard. PHILLIP Fuck! The passenger door opens. CONNOR gets in the car. Connor is in his early thirties and has short, blonde hair. CONNOR What are you bitching about? PHILLIP Sanchez fucked me. CONNOR Isn’t he Cuban like you? PHILLIP Yeah. Whatever. How’s Emily?
CONNOR She’s good. You still with that cheerleader? PHILLIP Yeah. CONNOR Your parents are okay with you fucking a high school graduate? PHILLIP I don’t give a fuck what those two think. CONNOR Sorry. PHILLIP So you got something good? CONNOR Yeah. O’Doyle’s underboss is making a move to power. PHILLIP Which one? There’s three of them. CONNOR Not anymore. Two of them got taken out and now O’Reilly is making a move. PHILLIP Really. Where did you hear this? CONNOR I heard some drunk in the bar talking about it. PHILLIP Good job. I might need you tonight. I’ll let you know. CONNOR Okay. Cool. Connor opens the passenger door and leaves. He looks over his shoulder and gives Phil a slight nod. Phillip starts the car and drives to a phone booth.
INT. STREET CORNER - PHONE BOOTH - MOMENTS LATER Phillip picks up the phone. He looks around and puts 35 cents into the phone. PHILLIP (into phone) Yeah. It’s me. He knows. Alright. That’s a little light. Can’t you be a little more aggressive? Okay. INT. FLANAGAN HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - AFTERNOON EMILY, a beautiful raven haired woman, sits on the couch. She rests her head on her hands. The door opens. Connor walks in. EMILY So where were you? CONNOR I don’t want to talk about it. Where’s the kids? EMILY In the basement. You need to stop this. CONNOR Stop what? Connor opens the door into the basement and heads down. INT. FLANAGAN HOUSE - BASEMENT - CONTINUOUS Connor’s and Emily’s kids CONNOR JR. and NATALIE play in the basement. Connor Jr. sits on the floor, putting a big jigsaw puzzle together. He is 8 years old and bears a striking resemblance to his dad, but he has black moptop hair. His little sister Natalie colors a picture in her coloring book. Natalie is four with a short bob hair cut. She looks exactly like Emily. CONNOR JR. What are you coloring?
NATALIE A princess. You think daddy will like it? Connor Sr. sneaks up behind Natalie. He quickly grabs her and tickles her. Natalie screams and laughs. NATALIE Daddy. What do you think of my picture? CONNOR I love it. NATALIE Jr. said you would like it because you used to be a princess. CONNOR Oh. He did, huh? Connor Jr. is laughing when he finishes his puzzle. CONNOR Alright Nattie, head upstairs and get ready. NATALIE Okay. Natalie runs upstairs. Connor walks over to Connor Jr. and looks at the finished puzzle. CONNOR Good job son. CONNOR JR. Thanks. You think it’s good? Connor starts rubbing Connor Jr.’s hair in a crazy manner. CONNOR Yeah. Even princesses love puzzles. Is this the fifty piece? CONNOR JR. Yeah. CONNOR Good job. Maybe tonight, we can put the 100 piece together.
A jigsaw puzzle box sits on the table in the corner. It has a picture of a man with a hat walking into the sunset. INSERT-BOX LABEL 100 PIECE BACK TO SCENE CONNOR JR. Can we? CONNOR Maybe. CONNOR JR. Oh. You have a secret mission tonight? CONNOR Maybe. If I do, we’ll put the puzzle together tomorrow. Alright? CONNOR JR. Okay. Connor Jr. runs upstairs. Emily comes down and confronts Connor. EMILY So how’s work going? CONNOR I’m not talking about this. EMILY We are talking about this god damn it. You know I don’t like you spying on those people. You know what they do to people like you. CONNOR You don’t think I know that. I might be working tonight. I won’t know until Santiago talks to me. EMILY You know I never trusted that Cuban bastard. CONNOR I grew up with the guy and I trust him. So you’ll have to live with that.
Emily turns around and heads over to the stairs. She stops when the phone rings. Connor picks it up. CONNOR (into phone) Hello. Yeah it’s me. So I’m off tonight. Thank you. Yeah, I’ll be home all day. Why? Hello? Connor looks at the phone and hangs it up. CONNOR Are you happy? EMILY I’ll be happy when you stop being someone’s snitch. CONNOR I’m not a fucking snitch! I’m helping put pieces of shit in jail. The people I inform on are tearing this neighborhood apart. The mayor is trying to kick all the Irish people out and put all those fucking yuppies in here as a solution to this problem. EMILY You have everything figured out, don’t you? CONNOR O’Doyle is trying to run all the good people on this block out of their homes so they can build mansions for the other Italian bastards. Hell, I do not even know why I call that dago bastard O’Doyle. EMILY Oh. Did you find that out on your spying mission? Emily turns around and storms upstairs. Connor has his hands on his sides and looks at the ground. Connor cracks his neck and heads upstairs.
EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - FLANAGAN HOUSE - TWO HOURS LATER. There are sounds of kids playing. A bicycle rides by the Flanagan house. A black cadillac pulls in front of the house. The driver’s door opens and a man dressed in black steps out. His face isn’t seen until he slides a black ski mask on. The passenger door opens and out steps another man dressed in black, also wearing a black ski mask, but this one is wearing a tan trench coat. The MAN IN TAN speaks with a raspy Hispanic accent and the MAN IN BLACK speaks with an Irish accent. MAN IN TAN You sure about this. MAN IN BLACK I don’t give a fuck that he informed on O’Doyle but I can’t have him inform on me. I need to send a message to all the informers out there. MAN IN TAN Just him and his family? MAN IN BLACK No. Just him. Anyone else there, they didn’t see our faces. MAN IN TAN What if anyone hears our voices? MAN IN BLACK We won’t be anywhere near them to hear our voices. MAN IN TAN That sounds good. The trunk is popped open. The Man In Black pulls out a .357 magnum and the Man in Tan pulls out a double barrel shotgun. Man in Tan also pulls out a nine millimeter. The two guys load up their guns and head toward the door.
INT. FLANAGAN HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS Connor and his brother DECLAN are sitting down playing cards. Emily and Declan’s wife NANCY are sitting at the dining room table talking. NANCY I don’t care. Middle aged or not, I’ll still fuck him. DECLAN Hey. Will you shut the hell up? I don’t want to hear about you fucking Harrison Ford. NANCY You shut the fuck up and play your cards. Declan looks at Connor and smiles. DECLAN (TO CONNOR) That’s my wife. You got to love her. NANCY Why don’t you get more defensive when I say I would fuck Harrison Ford. DECLAN I like Harrison Ford. You can get me an autograph when you’re done fucking him. NANCY You asshole. Declan laughs when the doorknob is shot open. Everyone jumps out of the chairs. DECLAN What the fuck! Declan runs toward the Man in Tan. The Man in Tan shoots Declan in the chest with the shotgun. CONNOR No! Connor is shot in the leg by the Man in black. Connor tries to grab Black with his left hand, but gets his fore, middle, and ring fingers shot off.
Nancy is screaming and crying. The Man in Tan steps forward and shoots her in the head with his nine millimeter. The Man in Black grabs The Man in Tan. MAN IN BLACK What the fuck! I said just him. MAN IN TAN Too late! The Man in Black shakes his head and grabs Emily by the hair. He punches her. Emily falls on her husband. Black shoots Emily in the shoulder. The bullet passes through her and hits Connor. Tan grabs Emily and handcuffs her hands behind her back. Tan goes towards the kitchen. He is about to walk in when he sees Natalie standing in the kitchen. She is holding her teddy bear and crying. Tan hunches down and waves Natalie on over. MAN IN TAN Come here. It’s okay. I won’t hurt you. As she approaches, Tan pulls out his nine millimeter. Black is keeping guard on Connor and Emily when he hears Natalie’s scream and a gunshot. Black runs over to Tan. Black’s eyes pop wide open as he sees Natalie’s dead body. He turns to look at Tan. MAN IN TAN What? MAN IN BLACK What the fuck do you mean what? How fucking old do you think that girl is? I did say send a message but not draw a lot of attention. A dead little girl draws a lot of attention. MAN IN TAN It’s too late.
MAN IN BLACK Okay. Fine. I call dibs on the big mouth. Black grabs Connor’s head and turns it to look at Emily. Tan pulls Emily’s head back. Tan pulls out his knife and slits Emily’s throat. CONNOR No! Black closes his eyes and shakes his head. He then punches Connor’s shoulder wound and pulls out his .357. Black cocks the gun. MAN IN BLACK So you like to talk a lot. Black puts the gun in Connor’s mouth and shoots. The back of Connor’s head splatters the wall. Blood pours out of Connor’s mouth. Black cleans the blood off of his barrel. MAN IN BLACK (to Man in Tan) That will teach him. Search the rest of the house. Just in case anyone else is here. MAN IN TAN If there is? MAN IN BLACK Do whatever you want. Tan heads toward down into the basement. Black starts walking toward the door. He hears kids screams coming from the basement, followed by two gunshots. He lowers his head. MAN IN BLACK God forgive me. He opens the door and leaves. Tan comes out of the basement and heads out the door.
EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - FLANAGAN HOUSE - CONTINUOUS Tan is walking toward the door when a cop pulls up. Tan shoots the cop in the head when the cop gets out. Tan gets in the car and the car drives away. CUT TO: EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - FLANAGAN HOUSE - CONTINUOUS THE CREDITS ROLL. A mustang drives by the house but stops abruptly. Phil Santiago gets out and runs over to the dead cop. He pulls out his gun and walks up to the house. People next door come out of their house. PHILLIP Stay in your house! He runs inside. EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - FLANAGAN HOUSE - ON-CAMERA There is police tape around the yard. CORONERS are taking a body bag to a black station wagon with CORONER in big white letters on the side. A REPORTER is talking to the camera. REPORTER I am here at the house of Connor Flanagan, a steel worker, who was murdered along with his wife, brother, and sister-in-law. The reporter presses an ear piece and shakes his head disapprovingly. REPORTER It has been confirmed that the children of both couples were killed. Phillip walks with a body bag being carried out on a gurney. REPORTER Detective Santiago. Can you tell me something?
PHILLIP No. REPORTER Please. One word. PHILLIP How about two? Fuck and you. REPORTER Come on. You can’t say that. Please. How do you feel? PHILLIP How do I feel! A four-year-old was executed you stupid fuck! How do you think I feel! Phillip grabs the reporter and throws him on the ground. OFFICER MARCUS JONES grabs Phillip and pulls him out of the crime scene. Marcus is a handsome, black man in his early twenties. He is clean-shaven and bald. EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - FLANAGAN HOUSE - OFF CAMERA MARCUS You alright? PHILLIP No. They killed my informant. MARCUS Who? PHILLIP I don’t know who? Look in there, it’s a fucking massacre. MARCUS Okay. You get out of here. I’ll handle everything. Phillip lights a cigarette. He takes quick panicked hits off his cigarette. INT. O’DOYLE’S PUB - BOOTH - NIGHT SEAMUS O’REILLY, a handsome Irishman in his mid-twenties, sits with BOSS O’DOYLE, a fifty something balding Italian man.
Seamus is wearing a black suit with black shirt. His hair is a short hazel crew cut. BOSS O’DOYLE Is everything a go for tomorrow? SEAMUS Yes. BOSS O’DOYLE You still hanging around that fucking Mexican? SEAMUS Yeah. And he’s Cuban. BOSS O’DOYLE I don’t give a fuck you fucking homo. And don’t give me that fucking bullshit about him being our informant. SEAMUS He is my informant. And don’t call me a homo. BOSS O’DOYLE I’ll call you whatever the fuck I like. You understand me you Irish son of a bitch. I’m the boss here. You and all these other Irish fucks need to take a note from me and my son Johnny Boy. Now go get me a knife for my steak. Seamus walks toward the bar. Johnny Boy is sitting at the bar and turns to Seamus. JOHNNY BOY You better start showing me and my daddy respect. My fellows at the end of the bar will take care of you and all your Irish friends. Seamus looks at the end of the bar and sees four ITALIANLOOKING GUYS with sunglasses. He grabs a steak knife from the bar. Seamus walks back toward the table when the bells from the door ring. Fitzy, a dark haired, fairly handsome guy with a thick Irish accent, walks in and sits next to Johnny Boy. JOHNNY BOY Are you out of your fucking mind?
FITZY No. Why? JOHNNY BOY I don’t let anyone sit next to me, especially some chic. FITZY It’s mick. JOHNNY BOY I don’t give a fuck. The bells ring again. Three 20-year-old kids walk in. They all have black coats and hats like dock workers. Fitzy looks at them and turns to look at Seamus. Seamus winks at Fitzy and Fitzy turns to look at the dock workers. He taps his nose three times. One of the dock workers walks up behind one of the Italians. He pulls out some piano wire and strangles the first Italian. Another dock worker stabs the second Italian in the back of the head with a screwdriver. The third dock worker pulls out two guns equipped with silencers. He shoots the third Italian in the back of the head and shoots the last Italian 10 times when he turns around. Johnny Boy gets up from his bar stool but Fitzy throws his jacket over Johnny’s head. BOSS O’DOYLE Seamus get the fuck up and do something. Help me! SEAMUS Okay. Watch this. Seamus grabs the steak knife and sits up from the booth. He walks to Johnny and slits his throat. BOSS O’DOYLE No! Why? Why would you do this? Haven’t I been good to you? SEAMUS No you haven’t. I have taken your insults and your bitching for far too long. You wanted me to do something. Well.
Seamus walks over to O’Doyle and stabs him repeatedly in the chest. He then drags O’Doyle out of the booth and throws him on the floor. Seamus sits back down and starts to eat the steak on the table. The BARTENDER stands up from behind the bar and yells to Seamus. BARTENDER So boss, should we call the police? Everyone in the bar starts to laugh. SEAMUS Yeah. Call Phillip. Seamus gets up and climbs onto the bar. He points his knife at each of the soldiers in the bar. SEAMUS Now hear this. I’m the boss now. No robbery, murder, or weapons deal goes down without me knowing about it. No drugs. If you’re caught with drugs, you will eat whatever amount you have. Seamus hands his knife to Fitzy. SEAMUS We going by medieval rules. You steal from me, I’ll cut your fucking hand off. You do weapons deals behind my back, I will shoot you in the back. You try to kill me, well you know what will happen then. Don’t think it will be quick. I’m a very patient man and I like to take my time. A new era is starting. It’s time for the Irish to take back the neighborhood and everything else. Seamus looks at blood on his hands. He jerks his hand down splattering blood on the floor. SEAMUS You see that. I’m spilling the blood of Italians who thought they can come in my neighborhood and run things. I will spill more of their blood if they think they can come in and run down the Irish mob. (MORE)
16. SEAMUS (cont'd) This is our neighborhood and it is the first in a monopoly of places that will fall to us. First, Hell’s Kitchen and then, New York!
Everyone in the bar starts to cheer. EXT. FLANAGAN HOUSE - FRONT YARD - SAME TIME Police tape surround the yard outside the house. A chalk outline of a body is out in the street. Connor Jr. crawls out from under the house. He sniffles and wipes his eyes with his hands. Connor Jr. looks at the house and stares out into the street. He has a somewhat cold-blooded stare. CLOSE UP on his blue eyes. FADE IN: INT. VINCENT’S PENTHOUSE - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT - 20 YEARS LATER SUB-TITLE 20 YEARS LATER Connor Jr., now being called VINCENT, lays on his couch. He is wearing a black button-up shirt and dress pants. He has a military cut and is clean-shaven. A silver nine millimeter equipped with silencer is in his hand resting on his chest. EXT. UPSTATE NEW YORK - OUTSIDE GATES OF BANK - SAME TIME It is a beautiful starry night. There are trees by the barbed wired gates that surround the bank. A white van sits right next to the bank. INT. INSIDE THE WHITE VAN - NIGHT Four guys and a girl sit around a blueprint. The leader, LUCAS, is pointing to areas of the page. Lucas, a twenty-year-old that bears a striking resemblance to Seamus, is showing the rest of the teams their entries. The team consists of Lucas’ friend RILEY, who is about the same age as Lucas.
Riley is short with brown, curly hair and a big nose. The other members are BOBBY and BILLY, two twins with the same slick greasy hair and chubby faces. The last member is SHEILA, a beautiful raven-haired woman, the girlfriend of Lucas. LUCAS You guys remember the vault locks? RILEY Yes. The access switches are in the President’s office and the Treasurer’s office. LUCAS And? BILLY The main security room? LUCAS Yes. RILEY What about the second lock? LUCAS That’s what the lock picks are for. BOBBY Is anyone in the bank on our side? LUCAS Yeah. The main and west security room guards are getting a cut, or so they think. The guard at the front desk is ours, too. RILEY Then why are we going in through the roof and fire door? We can just go through the front door. LUCAS Where’s the fun in that? RILEY Alright. When do we move in? LUCAS We don’t come down until Sheila gives us the signal. Then we signal the twins.
SHEILA Honey, what’s the purpose of the fake e-mails? LUCAS The e-mails make sure we get away scot-free. When the cops or the feds investigate the robbery, the employees go down and we go down...to Jamaica. SHEILA Always planning ahead. LUCAS You know I do. Everyone know their plans? BILLY AND BOBBY Yeah. RILEY Yes. SHEILA Of course. LUCAS Let’s get ready to rumble. EXT. OUTSIDE NEW YORK BANK GATES - IN FRONT OF VAN CONTINUOUS Lucas steps out of the van wearing a black commando like uniform. Sheila steps out wearing a women’s business suit and glasses. Riley, Bobby, and Billy are wearing the same clothes as Lucas. Lucas walks over to the driver’s door. The driver, SILAS, an older British man in his forties, rolls down the window. LUCAS Remember to take off at 2:00 or if you hear any alarms. We’ll find another escape. SILAS Consider it done. I prefer to wait around if my share is in jeopardy.
Bobby and Billy are putting some sort of liquid into two syringes. They put the syringes in their breast pocket. Riley is putting a toy gun and a lock pick into a satchel. He straps it to his body. Lucas hands Riley, Billy, and Bobby flash drives. He then loads a lock pick and a circular lock pick in his bag. Lucas hands Bobby a pair of wire cutters. Bobby runs over and cuts the barbed wire. Billy boosts Bobby over the wall. EXT. OUTSIDE NEW YORK BANK - INSIDE THE GATES - CONTINUOUS Bobby ties the rope to a tree within the gates. He throws a rock over the wall. EXT. NEW YORK BANK - IN FRONT OF VAN - SAME TIME LUCAS Let’s go. The group walks toward the wall. INT. PHIL’S BEDROOM - EARLY MORNING Phil’s room has chipped blue paint on the wall. On the table by the bed is a dusty old picture of a younger Phil holding a beautiful blonde in a green cap and gown. Phil is sleeping on a king-sized bed. He has blue covers that cover him from his chest on down. Phil is wearing a wife white tanktop. Now in his forties, Phil has wavy black hair with gray coming in, and on his face is black and gray beard stubble. He is sleeping, but is awakened by the phone ringing. Phil picks up the phone. PHILLIP (into phone) Hello?
INT. NEW YORK BANK - RECEPTION - SAME TIME Marcus, now in his forties with a black fade haircut, stands in the middle of the reception area. Two UNIFORMED POLICE are talking to the guard at the front desk. MARCUS (into phone) Someone robbed this bank outside of Manhattan. I never heard of this fucking place. INTERCUT WITH PHIL’S LOCATION PHILLIP Can’t you ever say hello? MARCUS Hello. Get down here and check this out. PHILLIP I’m off. Get your brother to look into it. MARCUS Last time I checked you were Robbery and Homicide. PHILLIP I am but I’m off. Why the fuck would I care about some secret bank? MARCUS Because the money stolen has O’Reilly written all over it. Phil sits up quickly. He covers the mouth part of the phone. PHILLIP Fuck. Phil lightly bites the antenna of the phone. PHILLIP You still there? MARCUS Yeah.
PHILLIP I’ll be down there in half an hour. What road did you take? INT. NEW YORK BANK - RECEPTION - LATER Phil walks in. He is now wearing a casual shirt and pants and a leather jacket. He puts white surgical gloves on his hands. A uniformed cop walks by Phil. UNIFORM #1 How’s the queen of the Kitchen? PHILLIP Fuck yourself. Phil walks over and greets Marcus. PHILLIP What do we got? MARCUS The head guard claims he didn’t hear anything out of the ordinary. He heard the sunroof over the teller area of the bank open, but he says it does that every night. PHILLIP How did he know the bank got robbed? MARCUS He says he was going to punch out when he heard moaning from the back area. He walks back there and finds the guards of the wing areas bound and gagged. Sounded an alert and all the security went and checked the vault. PHILLIP Let me guess. The door was wide open and everything was gone. MARCUS Well not everything. Just deposit box 623. PHILLIP Whose box is that?
A man in a brown suit hands Marcus two sheets stapled together. MARCUS Your old pal Seamus’. PHILLIP What was the amount stolen? Marcus flips the page and runs his finger to the bottom of the page. MARCUS It doesn’t say. Even secret banks don’t know the contents of safe deposit boxes. PHILLIP It was probably a lot. I thought he would be smart and put it in a Swiss bank account. This stupidity is about to bite him in the ass and pay off for us. MARCUS Why is that? PHILLIP I called the IRS on the way over here. Just to ask if they knew about this place. They had no fucking clue there was a bank over here. MARCUS So what are you saying? PHILLIP That this is a tax man’s wet dream. How many tax evader’s we have at this bank? MARCUS Are you saying you want to try the Ness route? PHILLIP The what? MARCUS You can’t pin any crime on Seamus so you’re going for the tax evasion charge.
PHILLIP Why not? Not even Capone or Mickey fucking Cohen could beat that charge. And I believe in my sick, twisted mind that the IRS can’t account for this money. And I also believe that Seamus didn’t file a return for any amount of cash he has here? MARCUS It sounds like a wild goose chase. PHILLIP Yeah but now the goose’s ass is going to get chased right to Sing Sing. Phil walks out of the bank, pushing Uniform #1 on the way out. EXT. NEW JERSEY - STREET - LATER A mustang stops in front of a yellow house. Phil gets out and waves to a pizza van across the street. He walks up to the white door of the house. EXT. NEW JERSEY - HOUSE - SAME TIME Phil knocks on the white door. KIM, the same blonde from the picture on Phil’s table but now in her late thirties, opens the door. PHILLIP Hello. KIM What do you want? PHILLIP Can I come in? KIM For? PHILLIP I need to see your husband. Kim rolls her eyes and waves Phil in.
INT. KIM AND SEAMUS’ HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS The living room is white. There is a plasma TV on the wall. A black leather couch is right by the window across from the TV. There is brown mahogany table in the middle. There is a TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, and TIME magazine with Seamus on the cover. In the middle of the table, there are pictures of Kim holding a baby, Seamus holding Kim, and Seamus and a ten-year-old Lucas wearing Yankee jerseys and hats. There is the sound of a shower running in the background. PHILLIP So where is he? KIM He’s in the shower. What do you want with him? PHILLIP It is something in his best interest. KIM Oh. Is that your code to rat something out? PHILLIP You know you were always a smart ass little bitch. KIM Yeah. PHILLIP So. How are things? KIM Oh that’s nice. You come in my house. Better yet, Seamus’ house and call me bitch. And now you have the nerve to ask me how are things. Things are going good. They were good when I dumped your ass twenty years ago and they’re good now. PHILLIP How’s your son?
KIM I don’t know. I haven’t seen him in a week. PHILLIP I know. KIM How would you know that? PHILLIP What? Did you think that a pizza man was living across the street from you? KIM You fucking pigs and your fucking Patriot Act. PHILLIP Patriot Act? Please. The pigs were surveilling people long before the Patriot Act. Damn you blondes are stupid. KIM Ha ha. Forget the surveillance and tell me why no police will help me find my son. PHILLIP What are you talking about? KIM I called the police when Lucas didn’t come home and they were more worried about using him as bait to cause Seamus to do something stupid. The shower sound stops. PHILLIP Alright I will look into it. Tell your hubby to reach me. KIM Okay. (whispering to herself) I should tell him to kill you. PHILLIP What?
KIM Nothing. I’ll let him know. Now, please try to find Lucas. Phillip walks out. Kim sits down when Seamus walks out of the bathroom. Seamus is wearing a normal black suit. SEAMUS Who was that? KIM Your cop. SEAMUS What did he want? KIM He said it was something in your best interest. SEAMUS Okay. You alright? Seamus sits down next to Kim. Kim starts to cry. KIM I’m just worried. It’s not like Lucas to do this. SEAMUS It’s okay. He is probably out with his girlfriend or that retard Riley. God I hate that fucking idiot. KIM He is out there with Riley doing your kind of work, in hope that you will be impressed and consider asking him to join the crew. SEAMUS He can do all he likes, but he is not going to be a part of my crew. I don’t want him to deal with the stuff that I had to deal with growing up. KIM Thank you. SEAMUS But really. Did Phillip do anything when he was here?
KIM No. SEAMUS Are you lying? KIM No. SEAMUS Okay. I love you. He gets up and walks to the door. KIM I wish you could stay around for a while. I really like it when you’re here. SEAMUS I have to go to the bar to see how things are going. I can stay for a little while longer. What do you want to do? KIM I was thinking. Kim lies back on the couch and starts smiling big. Seamus starts smiling. SEAMUS Oh really. The guys can wait for a while. Seamus takes his jacket off. He walks over to the couch and gets on top of Kim. They start kissing passionately. EXT. HELL’S KITCHEN, NEW YORK - O’REILLY’S PUB - AFTERNOON Seamus steps out of a black Santa Fe. DRIVER I wish you would let me open the door for you sir. SEAMUS I’m not fucking crippled. I can open a door. Is Fitzy here?
DRIVER So is Loomis and Vincent. SEAMUS Vincent’s here. Good. Pull around back because Loomis is taking a trip up the Hudson. DRIVER Alright sir. SEAMUS What’s with this sir business? I’m not that fucking old. DRIVER Sorry Mr. O’Reilly. Seamus opens the door and heads inside. INT. O’REILLY’S PUB - CONTINUOUS Fitzy is at the bar with guys crowded around him. He is laughing and enjoying himself. Everybody backs away when Seamus walks in. Fitzy lowers his head and closes his eyes. SEAMUS Hey Fitz. FITZY Yes. He turns around and faces Seamus. Seamus has a cold, emotionless stare on his face. SEAMUS Whaddya hear, whaddya say. Seamus’ face brightens with a big smile. He walks over and gives Fitzy a big hug. SEAMUS God I missed you. FITZY You son of a bitch. You scared the shit out of me. SEAMUS What? Did you think I was going to kill you? You did nothing wrong. (MORE)
29. SEAMUS (cont'd) Now where is the guy that did something wrong?
Everyone points to the end of the bar. LOOMIS, a sort of chubby balding man in his thirties, takes big gulps of his pint. Seamus and Fitzy walk over and sit down right next to Loomis. SEAMUS Loomis. How was the slammer? LOOMIS It was nothing. I can’t fucking believe it. 10 years for some bitch saying she wanted me to stop plowing her. SEAMUS She did say no, right? LOOMIS My hearing’s not so good, so I couldn’t tell the difference between o and no. SEAMUS Was it necessary to beat her too and have my friend drive you away from your little indiscretion? LOOMIS Well, maybe the little Spanish bitch shouldn’t have clawed my eyes. SEAMUS That’s funny. Can I tell you a story? LOOMIS Sure. SEAMUS You see there was this stupid alcoholic. He was a big pussy. This guy liked to beat and rape his wife because it made him feel like a man. This guy had a son who constantly warned him to stop being brutal to his mom. One day, the guy tied his son up and forced the son to watch him beat, rape, and kill the mother. (MORE)
30. SEAMUS (cont'd) You have no fucking idea what that does to a kid. The dad goes to make himself some toast with his whiskey. The kid breaks free of his bonds and grabs a wooden bat. This kid rushes into the kitchen and Babe Ruth’s the living shit out of his dad. The dad wasn’t dead yet. So the kid grabbed his dad’s silver .357 Magnum and put it into his dad’s mouth.
Seamus bends his fingers to look like a gun. SEAMUS And blows his brains out the back of his head. The moral of that story is that when someone gives you a fucking warning, you better listen to it and not laugh it off. Loomis starts sweating. LOOMIS I’m sorry. I better go. He stands up and Seamus and Fitzy stand up. SEAMUS Why don’t you take the basement way? LOOMIS No. I better go this way. Loomis starts to walk forward and Fitzy kicks him in the testicles. Seamus grabs Loomis’ pint of lager and smashes it on Loomis’ head. Loomis falls against the wall, his head bleeding. Fitzy grabs him and throws him against the bar. Fitzy starts to kick him. Seamus grabs Fitzy. SEAMUS Fitz. Stomping is more effective. Seamus and Fitz start stomping Loomis. Loomis starts to scream and cry. Seamus stops.

Seamus and Fitz sit down at the bar. SEAMUS Bartender. A pint for me and my friend here. BARTENDER Coming right up. Oh yeah. Seamus there was a call for you earlier. SEAMUS Who was it?

Seamus twirls the bat around. SEAMUS You are the head of security. Is that correct? HEAD OF SECURITY Yes.
Seamus is handed a thin aluminum box. He shows it to the head of security. SEAMUS Do you know what this is? HEAD OF SECURITY A safety deposit box. SEAMUS Do you know what’s wrong with it? HEAD OF SECURITY I don’t know. Seamus hits the head of security with the deposit box and slams the bat down on his legs. The man screams. SEAMUS It’s fucking empty! Don’t worry. The bat is hitting your legs label side out. So the only thing that’s going to break is your fucking knees if you don’t tell me what the fuck happened with my money! The head of security starts crying. HEAD OF SECURITY Okay. I’ll talk. I was paid to just look the other way. SEAMUS By who? HEAD OF SECURITY Some guy. Lucas something? Seamus starts to rub his face. SEAMUS Alright. I’m sorry about this. It was necessary. Seamus walks upstairs. INT. O’REILLY’S PUB - MOMENTS LATER Vincent is sitting in a booth reading an article on genocides in the Balkans. Seamus sits down across from him.
SEAMUS Vincent. My friend. How are you today? VINCENT Good. What did you call me down here for? SEAMUS You only come down here when there is work. Well, there’s work. VINCENT Who’s the mark? SEAMUS Marks. Three of them. Tail them until you see any evidence of them handling large quantities of money. When you find out it’s mine, let me know. Then they’re contracts will be updated to kill. VINCENT The price for surveillance is... SEAMUS I know. 400 grand now and a million when contract is completed. Remember no trace to me. VINCENT Any actual hits? SEAMUS Actually, yes. I want you to kill the people who work in this bank. This has to be done tonight when they are all there. Your assignment starts with the head of security downstairs. Seamus nods to the bartender who stops cleaning glasses and pulls out two big stacks of money. One of Seamus’ soldiers takes the money over to Vincent. SEAMUS There’s 450 thousand. I’ll wire you 2 million when those idiots are gone. VINCENT I’ll be done by midnight.
SEAMUS Sounds good. Vincent gets up to leave. He walks right into Phillip. PHILLIP You mind dickhead? VINCENT Sorry. I didn’t mean to ruin your designer jacket. PHILLIP It’s alright. Be careful. This thing cost me 900 dollars. VINCENT You got fucked then because that is a knockoff. PHILLIP You’re shitting me. How do you know that? VINCENT I’m very good at knowing things like you stepping in dog shit. Phillip looks at his foot as Vincent walks away. He looks at Vincent, who turns around for a second to slightly nod. Phillip has a look of familiarity. He walks over to Seamus’ table and sits. SEAMUS What’s the word? Phillip looks over his shoulder at the door. SEAMUS Hey. PHILLIP What? Oh, um, the IRS are piggybacking the investigation because they found you had 500 million dollars in barabonds and they don’t have a return for it. They might get the idea of bringing tax evasion charges against you. SEAMUS Oh. They’ll change their minds.
PHILLIP I hope you got something good because I have no idea how to get you out of this predicament. By the way, who the fuck was the Terminator that just left? SEAMUS That’s Vincent. He’s really good at his work. My protege. PHILLIP You trained him? Something familiar about him. His name is Vincent? SEAMUS Yeah, Vincent. I found him on the street. He had a vicious streak. Some punks tried to beat him to death so I stepped in. That was too much talent to be killed off by some preppy asshole. Seamus looks down with a look of regret. PHILLIP You always had an eye for detail. SEAMUS You hear of any suspects? PHILLIP Yeah. These twins from Boston. Billy and Bobby McGann. Fucking Red Sox fans. Their stupid cousin Riley McGann. You know them. SEAMUS I know Riley. PHILLIP Lucas is supposedly leading it. Him and his girlfriend. SEAMUS I knew about Lucas. His mother’s a wreck. She’s flipping out about Lucas pulling jobs for me, when he isn’t. The bank’s head of security told me about Lucas. PHILLIP I haven’t talked to him yet.
SEAMUS You won’t need to because he is going to take a trip. PHILLIP I don’t want to know. SEAMUS I think you do. Seamus has a devilish smile on his face. EXT.

VINCENT Who’s this? JEREMY Davy Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, and Tich. VINCENT Who are they? JEREMY A pop band in the 60’s. You know Pete Townsend almost left the Who to join that band. VINCENT Really?

What do you do on your free time? VINCENT Nothing really. JEREMY Do you play with yourself? Vincent looks at him with his signature blank stare.
JEREMY Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I sometimes do that when I’m stressed. VINCENT I don’t jerk off. JEREMY Good. I don’t either. I was just saying that so you would feel better. VINCENT Relax, man. It’s not like I’m going to kill you. JEREMY You’re not, right. Vincent laughs a little bit and, then gives his blank stare. Jeremy’s face, which was smiling, turns to shock.

JEREMY (to himself) “Come inside.” Fuck that. Yeah, so you can strangle me. No, sir. Jeremy drives off. INT. VINCENT’S PENTHOUSE - LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS The penthouse is pure white. Vincent walks into the front door. He puts his gun on a glass table in front of a black leather couch. Vincent walks to a table by the window. The table has a frame of a jigsaw puzzle put together. Vincent takes a puzzle piece out of the box and adds it to the frame. He takes a silver remote and presses the button. The blinds open up. The window is massive and has a view of New York City. Vincent is looking at the city, drinking a glass of Irish whiskey. He sits on a black leather couch and pours himself another glass. Vincent drinks it and sits back. Vincent picks up a black remote off the couch and hits a button on it. The lights turn off and blinds close. Vincent turns on the T. V. and changes the channel to the History channel. An episode of the History channel show True Crime comes on. T. V. ANNOUNCER (V.O.) I’m Robert Osborne and welcome to True Crime. Tonight we will go over the theory of the night that Connor Flanagan and his family was murdered execution style. Vincent pours himself another glass of whiskey. He stares blankly at the T. V. T. V. ANNOUNCER (V.O.) Was this senseless murder? Vincent drinks his glass. T. V. ANNOUNCER Or the extermination of a rat?
Vincent angrily throws the glass at the T. V. He turns the T. V. off and leans his head back. Vince falls asleep. INT. VINCENT’S PENTHOUSE - LIVING ROOM - MORNING Vincent is asleep.

Ami puts make-up on her face to cover up a bruise under her left eye. KRISTY walks in.
Ami turns to greet her. KRISTY Hey. Your shift is...oh my god! AMI It’s nothing. KRISTY God damn it. Why do you let that son of a bitch smack you around? AMI It was the last time. KRISTY What? Did he cry and say he was sorry? It will never happen again. That son of a bitch is out there eating. At least have the common decency to poison his ass. AMI I’m saying it’s the last time because we’re through. If he tries to say anything, I’ll tell him straight. KRISTY That’s good. AMI Did Sheila call? KRISTY No. AMI Oh man. I got a bad feeling. KRISTY You have no reason to worry. You should know your sister was up to no good when she messed around with the Prince of Hell’s Kitchen. AMI Yeah but Lucas will never get a position in his dad’s syndicate. His dad will never allow it.
INT. KRISTY’S DINER - MOMENTS LATER People eat at the booth and the counter. A COOK pulls papers with orders off of the spin rack. DAVID sits at the counter sipping his coffee.

DAVID Why haven’t you taken my calls? AMI Cause I’m not talking to you anymore. We’re done. DAVID You dirty Irish bitch. AMI And how nice it is to bring your Aryan beliefs into an Irishoccupied diner. Two guys dressed very similar to David walk in. AMI Oh. You brought your two goons with you. DAVID Oh. How asshole of me. This is Adam and Seth. AMI I don’t care. Just order and get the hell out of here.
SETH Hey. You watch how you talk to him. I know people who could make you disappear. Ami goes to walk away and SETH grabs her arm. He pulls her into the counter and David starts choking her. David stops choking her when he hears whistling behind him. PHILLIP I don’t think Seamus would like you beating on a woman in his neighborhood. SETH Fuck Seamus and fuck you. PHILLIP Fuck me. Phil opens his jacket and shows his badge that is on his waist. PHILLIP No. Fuck you. David and his buddies let Ami go and back off. PHILLIP You alright, miss? DAVID She’s fine. PHILLIP I’m not talking to you dickless. AMI I’m fine. PHILLIP Good. I’m looking for a friend of mine. Very quiet. Likes to wear black. Ami points to a booth in back. AMI He’s back there. PHILLIP Thanks.
AMI He’s cute. PHILLIP He sure is. Phillip rolls his eyes and walks over to Vincent’s booth. He sits down. Phil and Vince stare each other down. PHILLIP So. Tell me about yourself. Who are you? VINCENT I’m just a wanderer. Riding my pale horse. PHILLIP Behold the pale horse. VINCENT And the name who sat upon it was Death. And Hell followed with him. PHILLIP So you’re Death personified? VINCENT No. I just bring it, I guess. PHILLIP Why all the black? VINCENT It suits me. PHILLIP What made you join this profession? VINCENT Personal problem. PHILLIP Personal problem? That’s why I do what I do. Personal problems. VINCENT If the department found out the real story, then my personal problems would become legal problems. The same would probably happen for you.
PHILLIP How’s the department going to find out? Are you going to tell them? What are you, a rat? VINCENT No. I just kill rats. PHILLIP How good of a killer are you? VINCENT So good that I can take this napkin holder and show you many different ways I can kill you with it. Ami walks over to the table. AMI Can I take your order, Detective? PHILLIP Just coffee. Ami looks over at Vincent. She is speechless for a second. AMI And..uh..sorry. And what can I get for you. Hi. Vincent looks up at her and is speechless, then VINCENT Hi. Oh yeah. Uh, can I get two eggs, two sausages, and two French toast. I’ll have a coffee. Are you okay? AMI Yeah. She starts blushing. Ami walks behind the counter. AMI Hey Ryan. Can I get two eggs, sausage, and French toast? RYAN (O.S.) Sure sweetie. Kristy stands next to Ami.
KRISTY So. What’s next? You guys going to take each other’s clothes off and let him screw you on the counter. AMI What are you talking about? KRISTY You have to be kidding me. It looks like you two were about to have a heart attack. AMI He’s cute. He’s a quiet one though. Ami gets the tray with Vincent’s order and brings it to Vincent’s table. She pours Phillip and Vince coffee. Vince puts a thing of cream and sugar in his coffee, then watches Ami leave. VINCENT Why didn’t you order anything? PHILLIP You know what, I will. VINCENT No. It’s too late. I’m not going to let you waste her time trying to get your food. PHILLIP Okay, fine. Didn’t your parents ever teach you any fucking manners? VINCENT Did yours? Or did they teach you how to be crooked? What does your mom and dad think about you being a corrupt cop? PHILLIP I don’t fucking care what that bitch or my fucking father thinks. What about your parents? Is your mommy and daddy happy with you being a killer? VINCENT Don’t talk about my parents.
PHILLIP Why? Did I touch a nerve? What? Is your daddy a candy ass and your mom a whore? Vince quickly grabs Phil’s throat. People stop and look at the booth. Vince gives them a cold stare. Everyone turns away. VINCENT Don’t ever talk about my parents. He lets go of Phil. Phil rubs his throat and gets up. PHILLIP Listen. You leave the thieves alone. I have the common decency to let the IRS put Seamus in jail. He isn’t going to be the boss for long. Smiley is coming in to town to take over and you’ll be fucked. Vincent takes a bite of a sausage. He swallows it. VINCENT And? Phil stares at Vincent and walks away with a confident grin. Vincent continues eating. Ami walks over and sits down. AMI Hi. Where’s your friend? VINCENT He left. AMI So here you are eating alone again. You know that’s kind of pathetic. VINCENT What is? AMI Eating alone. I understand someone going to the movies by themselves, but eating alone. That shows how lonely someone is. VINCENT I’ll keep that in mind.
AMI You go to movies alone? VINCENT I haven’t been to the movies in a long time. AMI What was the last movie you saw? VINCENT Batman. AMI Batman Begins. VINCENT Begins? They made other Batman movies. AMI Which one did you see? VINCENT The one with Beetlejuice. AMI The first one. You telling me you haven’t seen a movie in twenty years? VINCENT Wow. It’s been twenty years. I don’t remember that much. AMI Was the last thing you remember? VINCENT My little sister Natalie. AMI Oh that’s sweet. Vince hears the sound of a little girl screaming, followed by a gunshot.

SEAMUS Don’t talk to my wife like that. BENNY He can talk to her, however, he likes. SEAMUS Sure. Tell your friend to take that bandana off his head. I don’t like hats in my house. SING It is not a bandana. It is my turban and it is a part of me. Benny, Sing, and Nikolai sit down at the table. SEAMUS Now, how much is Smiley offering me for the warehouse? BENNY You don’t get the clear picture. When Smiley wants something, he takes it. He wants your warehouse and he is going to get it. SEAMUS You guys have a lot of nerve to come in my house and threaten me and my wife. BENNY We don’t have the nerve. We have the will. We are the multi-national mob. SEAMUS Wow, that was the gayest punchline I ever heard. The multi-national mob? What is that some sort of club Smiley started? BENNY No! It is made up of multi-national mobsters. Don’t talk about Smiley. He’s a vet. SEAMUS So why should I be scared of a man that treats animals. I respect men who do that. It takes patience. I like patience.
Seamus nods his head at Fitz who smirks. BENNY A veteran. He was in a war. SEAMUS As a photographer. That is not a soldier. That doesn’t even count as a veteran. I’m a soldier. The things I’ve done like the throats I slit and the heads I put bullets in. That makes me a soldier. BENNY What military were you in? SEAMUS The A.R.W. BENNY The what? SEAMUS The Army Ranger Wing. They’re the Irish Special Forces. I have been cutting my teeth in the trenches. Smiley just put a uniform on and said he was a soldier. BENNY He is a soldier. And he wants your warehouse.

This is really nice bar. It will need some renovating to repair the bullet holes and blood. What do you think? SEAMUS I think when you mess with the bull, you get the horns. I have a nice present for you. You’re going to love this. Seamus hands the phone to Fitzy and smiles at Benny, Sing, and Nikolai. SEAMUS My wife is making ham hash and I totally forgot that Sing, you don’t eat ham. SING No I don’t. SEAMUS And Nikolai. You’re a big fan of blood sausage. NIKOLAI Yes. SEAMUS Well good. My wife is making that as well and Sing, she is also very good at making Mid East cuisine. I have tried some. Why don’t you go on into the kitchen and ask her to make you some food? Oh right, tell her to make you some. NIKOLAI Okay. SING Sure. How do you get there?
SEAMUS Just follow Fitzy. (to Fitzy) Hey Fitz, show them the kitchen. Make sure they have a really good time. FITZY Sure thing. Fitzy and Seamus wink at one another. Fitzy leads Sing and Nikolai out of the room. BENNY I would like some ham hash. SEAMUS Well good. So what organization did Smiley recruit you from? The Triads or the Tongs? BENNY How do you know the names? SEAMUS I’m a mobster. Why wouldn’t I? Kim brings in two plates of ham hash. She places the plates in front of Benny and Seamus. Kim smiles at Seamus on her way out of the room. Seamus and Benny start eating. BENNY Are my associates coming back? SEAMUS Yeah. My wife is probably cooking their meals right now. BENNY I feel better eating with my associates. SEAMUS You do know they have names right? Do you call them Associate 1 and 2? BENNY Yeah. Do you have a problem? SEAMUS No.
BENNY Where’s the kitchen? SEAMUS My wife doesn’t like to be disturbed when she cooks. BENNY If that’s so, where’s Nikolai and Sing. INT. KIM AND SEAMUS’ HOUSE - BASEMENT - CONTINUOUS Sing falls to ground. His eyes have a dead stare. There is railroad spike nailed in the top of Sing’s head. Blood rushes out of the wound. Nikolai dangles in the air. His hands are handcuffed to a meat hook on the ceiling. His mouth is taped shut. Nikolai wiggles his body around but stops. Fitz walks in with a raincoat on. He puts on goggles and picks up a chainsaw. He starts the chainsaw up. Nikolai screams as Fitz walks over with the chainsaw revving. INT. KIM AND SEAMUS’ HOUSE - BOARD ROOM - CONTINUOUS BENNY Listen. I’m not listening to you or saying another fucking word until my friends come back. SEAMUS Sure thing. Hey, Fitz! FITZY (O.S.) Yeah. SEAMUS Will you bring this man his friends. FITZY (O.S.) Sure thing. SEAMUS You see.
Fitzy walks in with a wooden stool. Benny looks at the stool and back at Seamus with a look of confusion. Seamus smiles and takes another bite of his ham hash. Fitzy brings in a barrel with hands sticking out. Blood spills out when Fitzy sets the barrel down. BENNY What the fuck! SEAMUS Well. Here’s Nikolai. Oh yeah, I forgot about your Muslim friend. Fitzy walks out of the room. Sing’s body falls into the room from the outside. SEAMUS Your associates are here. So let’s talk. Wait a minute. Fitzy, what did Sing say about the turban on his head? Fitzy walks back in the room. FITZY He said the turban was part of him. SEAMUS That confused me. He says the turban is part of him but it is not attached to his head. I thought I can help out but the only thing I had that would make it stick was that spike. BENNY Oh man. You have made the biggest mistake. SEAMUS No. You assholes made the mistake when you guys threatened my wife. Smiley made an even bigger mistake when he killed my soldiers and my bartender because he wanted to run his sleazy business out of my bar. If he wanted the bar so bad, he could have paid for it. BENNY Okay. I ask if he’ll meet with you.
SEAMUS Too late. He made a mistake when he sent three cheesedicks to boss me around in my own house. So I’m sending them back home completely fucked up. And don’t think the “them” I’m referring to means just them two. Fitz hits Benny and puts him in a headlock. FITZY Hey, Seamus? Do you want me to break his fingers? SEAMUS No. Benny breathes a sigh of relief. SEAMUS I want you to chop them off. BENNY No! Fitzy drags Benny out of the room. Seamus looks at the barrel and Sing’s body. Seamus walks into a bathroom in the back of the board room and pukes in the toilet. SEAMUS How Lucas wants this life is beyond me. EXT.

VINCENT You’re not stupid. You just make bad decisions. AMI Because I’m stupid. VINCENT Alright, you’re stupid. Ami laughs. VINCENT Do you ever want to date someone else? AMI Like you.

I don’t go out that much and I’m very horrible at this asking out thing. AMI No. You’re doing good. VINCENT I hope so because I have never done this before.

INT. APARTMENT - EVENING Lucas is at the kitchen table drinking a glass of milk. Sheila walks in and sits down across from him. LUCAS Do you know bank robbers are known as criminals? SHEILA I have something to tell you. LUCAS In the old west, land barons and railroad bosses would run people out of their homes just to claim the land or put the railroad through there. They used sheriffs and soldiers on the payroll to do their dirty work. Then Jesse James and Billy the Kid would rob the land barons and railroads and they were the bad guys. Why? SHEILA I don’t know. I really need to tell you something. LUCAS Listen to this. Why is a man who has people killed or someone’s house destroyed, just a regular rich guy and the good man that takes the money the rich asshole doesn’t deserve a bad guy. SHEILA No one ever knows. Whoever the cop says is a bad guy, is labeled a bad guy. I am going to tell you if you’re listening or not. LUCAS You want to know something? SHEILA I’m pregnant. LUCAS The book Public Enemies. It’s about the fed’s hunt for the Dillinger gang and the creation of the FBI. People believe that it’s called Public Enemies because of the gang. (MORE)
72. LUCAS (cont'd) The real reason is because Dillinger was deemed public enemy by the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover was deemed public enemy by the people. Dillinger was public enemy by legal standards but the real public enemy was Hoover.
SHEILA Are you listening to me? LUCAS I’m sorry. I’m just ranting because I’m freaking out. What were you saying while I was ranting? SHEILA Forget that. What are you freaking out about? LUCAS Well. The day after we rob the bank, every guy on the night shift is systematically killed. Not long after that, Silas rats Riley out to the cops but Riley gets a rifle round to the forehead. SHEILA Oh my God. Why didn’t you tell me? LUCAS I just found out from the news. I’m telling you right now. Not long after that, Bobby is found in an elevator, shot to death. People have been talking about a man in black. He looks like the devil in disguise. Have you talked to Ami lately? SHEILA No. She called me, but I haven’t got back to her. Why? LUCAS I talked to her to see how she’s doing. It seems she has been smitten with some guy that eats at her diner. She described him and it’s the same description as the guy that’s wiping us out.
SHEILA It can be a guy that looks like him. LUCAS The guy took down a big transit officer with no problem. The guy Ami talks to took down David and his butt buddies with no problem. Ami said he fought like he was highly trained. I got to see my father. SHEILA Why? LUCAS To get us off my dad’s hit list. SHEILA Your father won’t kill you. He will be angry because you ripped him off. LUCAS All I ever wanted to do was impress him. SHEILA Maybe you have and he has an odd way of congratulating you. Sheila gets up and wraps her arms around Lucas. She starts kissing his neck. LUCAS Now, what were you saying before? SHEILA I’m pregnant. Lucas’ face changes to shock. He turns around and looks at Sheila. LUCAS Since when? SHEILA A couple of weeks. LUCAS Oh. Wow! I can’t believe it. We’re going to have a baby.
Lucas kisses Sheila. Lucas’ happy demeanor changes to shock. LUCAS Oh no. SHEILA What? LUCAS I got to tell my dad. SHEILA Why? LUCAS So he doesn’t kill us. SHEILA He won’t kill you or me.

I have the common right to beat your ass for doing jobs that I said you can’t do and for putting your mother under a lot of stress. LUCAS I’m sorry. I just need you to come and get me and Sheila.

COMMISSIONER I am here today to thank Lieutenant Phillip Santiago for his hard work in the fight against the mobs of Seamus O’Reilly and Stuart Miley, also known as Mr. Smiley. PHILLIP You’re very welcome, commissioner. COMMISSIONER Oh, I’m not done. To truly thank you, I’m promoting you to Captain. Phil surprised, smiles at the Commissioner. COMMISSIONER You will be taking the place of the late great Captain Reynolds, who was sadly taken from us by a car accident. Phil covers a sick smile with his hand.

INT. PRECINCT - MARCUS AND PHIL’S OFFICE - CONTINUOUS Marcus is on the phone. Phil walks in. PHILLIP Hey, slick. Why the fuck were you not out there to congratulate me? I’m the Captain now and I’m ordering you to give me an answer. MARCUS I have been looking in to this bullshit case you gave me. PHILLIP What’s so bullshit about it? MARCUS The fact that you can’t get over that this fucking Vincent is dead. PHILLIP It’s just too fishy that a guy that well-trained can suddenly be strangled and burned like that. Phil sits at his desk, squeezing a stress ball. INT. VINCENT’S AND AMI’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - AFTERNOON There is a closet right next to the front door. The stairs to the upper floor are right across from the closet. The living room is white. There are two gray couches. There is a big window over one of the couches. The window looks out into the front yard. A visibly pregnant Ami sits on the couch reading a magazine. There is a knock on the door. Ami, nervously, sits up with difficulty and walks over to the door and opens it. A visibly pregnant Sheila is at the door. AMI Oh my God! How are you! SHEILA I’m good. Haven’t seen you in a long time? Why didn’t you tell me you were pregnant! I’m your sister and you don’t tell me something important like this.
AMI Vincent didn’t want me calling anyone. SHEILA Who? Why? AMI Vince. He is my husband and is very nervous. SEAMUS (O.S.) About what? Seamus steps next to Sheila. Ami starts to have panicked breathes. She looks at Sheila, who look down at the ground. AMI You brought him here. Why? SHEILA I wanted to see you and I can’t drive. He’s been looking after me since Lucas was killed. SEAMUS I’m not going to kill him. I just need to see him. Can we come in? AMI Just you two? SEAMUS No. My guys are with me? Seamus turns around. SEAMUS Let’s go in. Fitzy and Silas follow Sheila and Seamus inside. EXT. ALBANY, NEW YORK - STREET - SHOPPING PLAZA - SAME TIME Jeremy is walking by the shops, eating a bag of Munchos chips. He stops when he sees a puzzle store. Jeremy peeks in the window. He sees shelves stacked with boxes of jigsaw puzzles.
On the wall, he sees a picture of the owner. The owner looks like Vincent with scruffy hair and a beard. Jeremy looks at the picture and laughs. He walks by an alley and a hand grabs him. He is pulled into the alley. A hooded man with sunglasses throws Jeremy against the wall. The man starts frisking Jeremy. Jeremy turns around and shoves the guy into the wall. JEREMY Hey. Wrong bar, buddy. The man takes his sunglasses off. It is Vincent. JEREMY Holy shit! I thought you were dead. Seamus told me that Smiley had you snuffed. VINCENT No. I’m alive and well. JEREMY So that’s you in the picture in the window? VINCENT Yeah. I always had a thing for puzzles. It can make kids happy. JEREMY You’re fucking weird. Jeremy walks away but something crunches under his feet. JEREMY Oh. God damn it. I smashed my chips. Thanks, asshole. VINCENT Why do you eat those chips any ways? JEREMY Because they’re good. VINCENT You want to come to my house for dinner?
JEREMY For dinner? What’s the catch? You’re going to drug me and take my pants off or something? VINCENT Get the fuck out of here. I’m making dinner for my wife and I. I wanted to know if you wanted to join us. JEREMY You’re married? VINCENT Yes. And I’m going to be a father, too. JEREMY Really. When she due? VINCENT Sometime next week. JEREMY That’s awesome. I’ll come over for dinner. I’ll come on the condition that you don’t make a salad that psychotic way. You know, like throwing knives at flying tomatoes and lettuce heads. VINCENT Okay. INT. VINCENT’S AND AMI’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - LATER Fitzy sits on the couch right under the window looking out into the front yard. He gets up and hides by the corner next to the door when he hears Jeremy talking outside. JEREMY (O.S.) You’re seriously sure that Seamus has no clue that you are still alive. He walks in. Jeremy looks at Ami and Sheila. JEREMY Hi. Wow! Vincent, you whore. You knocked up two women. Fitzy walks up behind Jeremy and puts a gun to his head.
JEREMY Oh shit. He turns around and sees Fitzy. JEREMY Hey, Fitz. Silas steps out of the closet and hits Jeremy in the mouth. Jeremy falls to the ground, his lip is bleeding. JEREMY You fuck! You cut my lip open. Vince walks in and Fitz and Silas put guns to his head. Seamus walks down from the upstairs. Vince looks at Seamus and looks at Jeremy shaking his head disapprovingly. SEAMUS (to Vincent) How are you? VINCENT Good. SEAMUS So. When you decided to make a new life, was it necessary to make someone who cares about you to think you’re dead? VINCENT Yes. I knew you wouldn’t let me have a normal life. You wanted to keep a closer eye on me since your son was killed. SEAMUS Because you were just as much a son as Lucas. VINCENT Or did you think any amount of money could get me to kill your son? SEAMUS No. Vincent looks over at Sheila.
VINCENT Who’s she? SEAMUS My daughter-in-law. VINCENT So what is she doing here? SEAMUS A girl can’t visit her sister. VINCENT Sister? AMI Yeah. I told you I had one. Vincent looks Sheila’s baby bump, Ami’s baby bump, and back at Seamus. VINCENT She’s due the same time as Ami? SEAMUS If Ami’s due today, then yes. VINCENT What do you mean? SEAMUS She’s getting a C done later. Ami grabs her stomach. SHEILA Ami, what’s wrong? AMI Ow! Oh god. Vince, I think it’s coming. Vince runs by Ami’s side. SEAMUS Is it contractions? AMI Yes. SEAMUS Okay. Fitz, Silas. Get the cars and take the girls to the hospital. Jeremy, get the fuck out of here. (MORE)

Vince and Jeremy walk out of the house. The black men and Benny get out of the car. One of the black guys hits Vince over the head with something and the other black guy puts a bag over Vince’s head. Benny holds Jeremy off at gunpoint BENNY Do me a favor, don’t tell Seamus. The black men put Vince in the trunk. Jeremy stares at Benny’s gun. Benny pulls the trigger and water shoots out.

Phil hangs up the phone and leaves the office. INT. WAREHOUSE - TORTURE ROOM - SAME TIME Vincent’s hands are handcuffed and hooked on a meat hook. He dangles in the air as he is shocked with spark plugs. He screams every time he is shocked. His TORTURER is skinny with white hair and a dead right eye. Mr. Smiley walks in. MR. SMILEY This is what we do to people who refuse to work with us. VINCENT I don’t work for you and I never did. MR. SMILEY That’s where you’re wrong. Hell’s Kitchen belongs to me, even though Seamus doesn’t know it yet. When you live on my ground and killing is in your nature, you work for me until you die. Again! The torturer shocks Vincent again.
EXT. ALBANY - STREET NEXT TO HOSPITAL - STOP LIGHT - SAME TIME Jeremy sits in the truck waiting for the light to change to green. He looks over at the hospital and sees Benny and Silas dragging Sheila out of the hospital. Jeremy opens the door. He looks down and shuts it. He lightly bangs his head on the steering wheel. The glove compartment pops open. Jeremy looks over at a black leather book. He stares at it until the car behind him beeps the horn. Jeremy looks up and sees the light is green and goes. He drives until he sees a parking spot and pulls over to park. He opens the book. The book is a diary. JEREMY Vince has a diary. What a homo. He flips the pages to the last entry and reads. INSERT-LAST ENTRY THIS IS MY LAST HIT. I JUST KILLED THE LAST TWO ACCOMPLICES ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROBBERY. HE DOESN’T KNOW BUT, I PEEKED MY HEAD OUT OF THE DOORWAY AND SAW PHIL KILL THE COP AND LUCAS. HE HAS SAID HE WAS BECOMING SMILEY’S COP AND ASSUMED SMILEY MUST HAVE ORDERED THE HIT. BACK TO SCENE Jeremy has a look of shock. JEREMY Son of a bitch. Jeremy pulls quickly out of his parking spot, almost hitting a passing car. EXT. ALBANY - STREET - SHOPPING PLAZA - NIGHT Seamus and Fitzy are outside the puzzle shop. Seamus is smiling as he talks on his cell phone. He hangs up. SEAMUS 5 pounds, 6 ounces.
FITZY Wow. SEAMUS Same size as Lucas. Where the fuck is Vincent? Seamusâ€™ cell phone rings. SEAMUS Hello? Who is this? A black car drives by. The passenger sticks his body out. He pulls out a shotgun. Fitzy sees this and throws Seamus to the ground. The passenger shoots Fitzy in the chest. Fitzy flies through the puzzle shopâ€™s window. SEAMUS Fitzy! Seamus pulls out his gun and shoots at the car hitting the driver. The car stops at a intersection. The shooter is handed a sniper rifle. He takes aim and his Seamus in his sights. Seamus stares at the shooter. An engine roars toward the car. Head lights turn on. It is Jeremy in the truck. He crashes into the car, crushing the shooter. The car tips over on its side. Jeremy gets out and kicks the back window. He reaches in and takes out the shotgun. The driver is whining. Jeremy sticks the shotgun in the car and fires. The windshield is suddenly covered with blood and chunks. Jeremy walks over to Seamus. JEREMY I think you need to see this. Jeremy hands Seamus the diary. Seamus looks at the last entry. His eyes pop wide open. His face start contorting with anger as he cries and tries to tear the diary apart.
JEREMY You need to get home and take your wife out of town or something. Smiley might be after her. He took Sheila. SEAMUS How? Silas is at the hospital, guarding her and Ami. JEREMY Silas gave Sheila to Smiley’s bitch. The guys with no fingers. Seamus registers recognition. JEREMY Sooner or later, Smiley is going to send Phil to get your grandson. Why is Phil so interested in Vince now? SEAMUS Phil killed Vincent’s family. Well, almost all of them. I...I killed Vince’s father. JEREMY You fucking idiot. And you trained him too. Vince is going to kill you when he finds out. SEAMUS He will. You’re going to tell him. JEREMY I didn’t say I was. SEAMUS You are going to tell him. Tell him to meet me at my house and we can work out a deal to finish this. JEREMY When I rescue him first. SEAMUS What do you mean? JEREMY Smiley’s guys took him. SEAMUS I need to get him back.
JEREMY No. You need to protect your wife and kill Smiley. I’ll save Vincent, Ami, and the babies. Jeremy walks to a car across the street. He breaks the window with his elbow. Jeremy gets in and pops the wires out from under the wire. He hot wires the car and drives off. JEREMY (to himself) Yeah. Good thinking, Jeremy. Leave all the work to yourself. Seamus gets into his SUV and leaves to. INT. WAREHOUSE - TORTURE ROOM - SAME TIME Sheila is dragged in by Phil. Smiley walks in, smiling. VINCENT Hello, Lieutenant. PHILLIP No. It’s Captain now. I guess you’re not the best at what you do because if you were, then you would disappear a whole lot better. VINCENT You’re very lucky that I’m tied up here. If my hands were free, you wouldn’t feel very lucky. Phil walks up to Vincent and punches him in the ribs. Vincent moans weakly in pain. Smiley is handed a knife by the torturer. Smiley hands the knife to Phil. Phil holds the knife to Sheila’s neck. SHEILA I’m sorry. Please don’t kill me. I have a child. MR. SMILEY I know. He’s coming with you and the whole family will be reunited. Smiley nods to Phil. Phil slits Sheila’s throat.
VINCENT No! PHILLIP Man, she begged a lot. Your mother didn’t beg that much when I gave her a new smile. VINCENT You son of a... Vincent is shocked again. PHILLIP Wow. You’re so tense. It’s the mother’s love. I didn’t have that growing up. That’s why it didn’t bother me when I snapped my mother’s neck and slit your mom’s throat. He nods to the torturer and leaves with Smiley. The torturer continues with the shocking. EXT. ALBANY - OUTSIDE OF WAREHOUSE - CONTINUOUS Smiley and Phil get into a car and leaves. ETHAN, the guard in front waves them off. Jeremy peeks around the corner at Ethan. He is wearing a blue Nike wind breaker. A body falls behind Jeremy. He quickly spins around, startled. He looks at the body and sees it is Sheila. Jeremy gets angry and walks purposefully to the corner. Jeremy looks down and sees an ice pick. He picks up the ice pick and sticks it into the left sleeve of his jacket. He walks around the corner to Ethan. Ethan is wearing a black skull cap and jacket, like the dock worker killers in the beginning. Jeremy walks up to Ethan. JEREMY Hey. What’s up, man? ETHAN What the fuck are you doing here?
JEREMY Where there’s a mess, I am called. ETHAN There is a mess but I thought you were Seamus’ guy. JEREMY Seamus? Dude, I freelance. ETHAN Don’t call me dude. I am not a dude. JEREMY You better watch your words there. ETHAN Okay. I’m sorry but fuck you. JEREMY Jesus. Sorry. I will leave. I know Vincent’s here. Ethan reaches for his gun. Jeremy grabs Ethan’s hand. He slides the ice pick out and stabs Ethan in the throat. Ethan chokes as he falls to the ground. Jeremy takes Ethan’s gun. His gun is a .44 Magnum. JEREMY Thanks for the gun asshole. Jeremy is about to head into the warehouse but backs up into the darkness when he hears footsteps approaching. He takes his jacket off and wraps it around his hand holding the gun. A GUARD walks out. He looks around and sees Ethan’s body. Jeremy steps out of the darkness and takes aim. JEREMY Excuse me. The guard looks and gets shot in the head. The body falls next to Ethan. Jeremy unwraps his hand and creeps into the warehouse.
INT. WAREHOUSE - TORTURE ROOM - CONTINUOUS The torturer opens the door to leave. The stairs leading down are visible outside the door. The torturer turns back around to grab some of his tools. Vince sees Jeremy sneaking up the stairs. Jeremy pulls a miniature white statue out of the front pocket of the jacket. He presses the center and a blade pops out. The torturer pulls a syringe filled with yellow liquid. VINCENT What is that? Piss? TORTURER No. I don’t remember the name for it. It causes your lungs to inflate dramatically and your rib will crush them. A few ribs might break. And you’ll just have to deal with it. VINCENT Interesting. Jeremy runs into the room and stabs the torturer in the thigh with the statue knife. He grabs the syringe and sticks it into the neck of the torturer. Jeremy pulls a paper clip out of his pocket and picks Vincent’s handcuffs. Vincent is cut loose. Vince and Jeremy watch the torturer wither around as the poison kills him. VINCENT “Your lungs will crush.” Deal with it. JEREMY Yeah motherfucker. They leave. INT. ALBANY - OUTSIDE OF WAREHOUSE - CONTINUOUS Vince and Jeremy run around the corner to the car. VINCENT Where the fuck is my truck?
JEREMY I was going to talk to you about that. The two black men that helped kidnap Vince before run around the corner. Jeremy shoots one in the cheek and the other in the throat. Jeremy smiles and blows the smoke out of the barrel. VINCENT You want to hurry up. JEREMY We have to go to Seamus’ house. He wants to see you. VINCENT It can wait. I need to get to Ami and Connor before Phil and Smiley do. JEREMY Who’s Connor? VINCENT My son. JEREMY Congratulations. It’s important that you see Seamus. It has to do with your family’s murder. VINCENT I know. Phil killed them. JEREMY Not alone. Vincent gives Jeremy a wide-eyed serious look. EXT. NEW JERSEY - OUTSIDE OF SEAMUS AND KIM’S HOUSE - LATER Jeremy stops and drops Vincent off. Vincent gets out and Jeremy speeds away. Seamus comes out of his house. He and Vincent stare at each other down. SEAMUS You know.
VINCENT Yes. SEAMUS I’m sorry. I really am. I was just a stupid kid. I was trying to send a message to other informants to not inform on me. My intention was to make your family watch your dad die. VINCENT But you decided to change your mind? Seamus bites his knuckle to fight back tears. SEAMUS I didn’t want your family to get killed. It was Phil who went off the reservation and butchered them. I don’t know how many nights I have nightmares about what happened. I wish every day that I could of killed Phil. VINCENT But you still killed my father. And why? You had people in your pocket that would have helped you beat the conviction, so why? SEAMUS Because I hate informants. VINCENT What!? SEAMUS I told you the story about my parents. VINCENT Yeah. What does you killing your father have to do with killing mine? SEAMUS My father got arrested but got away with killing my mom because he was an informant for the British. When I see informants like your father, I just see my father. (MORE)
113. SEAMUS (cont'd) That’s why it doesn’t bother me when I blow the back of the informant’s fucking heads off.
VINCENT I never knew. SEAMUS I was going to tell you the truth about your dad when you were ready. VINCENT Ready for what? SEAMUS Ready to kill. My reason for training you was that you would be able to kill me when I told you what happened. I changed the plan when I married Kim and had Lucas. Now, fuck the plan. Lucas is dead and I brought Kim nothing but pain. VINCENT If you’re looking for some sort of redemption, then go protect your wife before Smiley gets to her cause you’re not getting one from me. Smiley already killed your son and daughter-in-law. SEAMUS Daughter-in... Sheila’s dead? VINCENT Yes. Phil killed her. SEAMUS Oh no. God damn that son of a bitch! Listen, I just want to kill Smiley and Phil. I know there’s this thing between me and you. Right now, I need your help. I have no more guys. Silas and the rest of them joined Smiley and Fitzy is in your shop with a hole in his chest. VINCENT What about Jeremy? SEAMUS He’s just a cleaner.
VINCENT He killed five guys in a warehouse to save me so I think he’ll do for now. INT. HOSPITAL - WAITING ROOM - SAME TIME Kim is being guarded by SMILEY’S GUARDS. Both of them armed with silenced sub-machine guns. A doctor dressed for surgery walks in. One of the guards, a French man, stops him. FRENCH GUARD What the fuck are you doing? Surgery is that way.

Benny turns around and Jeremy shoots him with his .44 Magnum. He quickly takes aim at Silas. JEREMY Go ahead. Make my day.
Silas drops his gun. He looks back at the paper towel rolls. JEREMY Bounty. The quicker picker upper. He shoots Silas in the knee. Silas collapses in pain. Jeremy lightly puts Connor III on a table.

Jeremy hides in the shadows, rocking Connor III. JEREMY Come on. It’s okay. Stop crying. Jeremy takes two cotton balls off the table. He sticks them into Connor III’s ears. The baby still keeps crying. JEREMY Come on. Jeremy rolls his eyes. JEREMY Shut up! The baby stops crying. The gunmen run into the room. Jeremy put Connor III down and grabs the sawed off shotgun. He whistles to the group and guns them down. INT. HOSPITAL - HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS Kim waits in the hallway with Lucas Jr. Jeremy comes out of the room, wheeling Connor III on a cart.
JEREMY What room is Ami in? KIM I think 1987. JEREMY Okay. Wait. This hospital is 19 floors? KIM (with frustration) Yes. JEREMY Just checking. Oh my god! There is a little flame on the door frame of the maternity ward. Jeremy walks over and pulls a cigarette out of his pocket. He puts the cigarette in his mouth. Jeremy lowers his head to the flame and lights his cigarette. JEREMY I’ve been dying to have one all day. Kim takes the cigarette out of his mouth and steps on it. She waves her hand by his face. JEREMY Oh, what the fuck! KIM No smoking around my grandson. JEREMY Really? INT. HOSPITAL - AMI’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS Ami is in a hospital gown. She sleeps peacefully until a hand taps her. She wakes up to see Jeremy. AMI Jeremy? Jeremy holds his finger over his lips.
JEREMY (whispering) Be quiet. I’m taking you out of here. Vincent sent me. Smiley is sending people to kill you and the babies. He already tried to kill Vince and Seamus. They’re fine. AMI How do you know? JEREMY Because I saved them. AMI Really? JEREMY Yes. I don’t have to save you. AMI I’m sorry. JEREMY Let’s go. Ami gets out of bed with some difficulty and Jeremy helps her out of the room. EXT. ALBANY - HOSPITAL - BACK ENTRANCE - CONTINUOUS Kim gets into the car with her Lucas Jr. Ami gets into the car with her son. Jeremy is about to get in when he hears the click of a gun behind him. He rolls his eyes and turns around sees Marcus. He breathes a sigh of relief. JEREMY Detective Jones. Thank god you’re here. Smiley sent people to kill these women and their babies. MARCUS I know. JEREMY You’ve been surveilling Phil. You know what’s going on. You’re going to help us.
MARCUS No. I’m here to stop you and kill them. I’m Smiley’s back up. How do you think Smiley stays out of jail? Smiley wanted Phil because I suggested him to Smiley. Now give me your gun and tell the girls to come out with their babies. Jeremy hands Marcus the .44 Magnum. He looks down at the ground. Ami and Kim start crying as they start to get out of the car. JEREMY Fuck. God damn it! I hate you fucking dirty cops! Jeremy chops his hand forward and a small gun pops out of his sleeve. Marcus’ eyes pop wide open when he sees it. JEREMY This is the cleaner. It keeps the good cops clean and the bad cops dead. Jeremy shoots Marcus in the chest three times. He turns around and walks toward the car. Marcus sits up and gets on his feet. He pulls a gun out of his back waistband. Marcus cocks the hammer of the gun back. Jeremy stops and turns around to face Marcus. Marcus, with a sick smile, aims the gun at Jeremy. The sound of a gun cocking is heard behind Jeremy. Marcus looks behind Jeremy with confusion. MARCUS What the fuck do you think you’re doing? Marcus is shot in the right cheek and forehead. Jeremy’s eyes pop wide open when Marcus is killed. He turns around and sees Ami with a black and brown .357 Magnum. Ami’s hand shakes. AMI Is he dead?
JEREMY Yeah. Jeremy walks over to Ami and tries to take the gun out of her hands, but her hand grasps the gun tightly. JEREMY It’s alright. You have to give me this. Ami lets go of the gun. Jeremy helps her back into the car. He gets in and drives off. EXT. OUTSIDE OF WANG CHI RESTAURANT - MIDNIGHT Wang Chi Restaurant is a white two floor building.

VINCENT Marines. JEREMY For a bit. VINCENT I’ll see you soon. Vincent hangs up. VINCENT Kim and Lucas Jr. are fine. SEAMUS How’s your son and wife? VINCENT They’re fine too. Jeremy saved them.

VINCENT I did to. SEAMUS You ready. VINCENT Yeah. Vince and Seamus get out of the car and head to the trunk. They both are wearing black suits with black ties and white shirts. Vince is now clean shaven with his old short military hair cut. They open the trunk and pull out a gym bag. The gym bag is filled with 12 Berettas, an Uzi, and a shotgun. They load the guns. Vince and Seamus each put two Berettas on the back and front of their waistbands and their shoulder holsters. Vince loads the shotgun and Seamus loads an Uzi. VINCENT What’s the plan?

WANG CHI RESTAURANT - EATING ROOM - CONTINUOUS Seamus walks over a few dead bodies and crouches down by Smiley. Seamus’ eyes blink three times. SEAMUS We never had a face to face talk. Have we? You see you’re always killing my guys and trying to kill me but you never had the common fucking courtesy to ask to meet me. We could have formed a peaceful alliance but you are such a fucking asshole. MR. SMILEY I’m sorry. SEAMUS You’re damn right. I wouldn’t have done something like this if you tried to kill me. But you crossed the line when you paid someone to kill my son and daughter in law. You also put a hit on my wife and my grandson. That’s something I cannot let pass. Seamus grabs Smiley’s head. He takes Smiley’s glasses off. SEAMUS I see your eyes of evil and it’s time I pluck them out. With a cold stare, Seamus sticks his thumbs into Smiley’s eyes. Smiley lets out a blood curdling scream, while bloody goo pours out as the thumbs go into the socket. Seamus has a cold blank stare in his eyes while he does this. Smiley continues screaming.
