INT. BOB'S HOUSE. DAY

They're sitting at the coffee table in Bob's great big
living room. It's got high ceilings and two Persian rugs.
They're eating sandwiches and chips.

BOB
If you're that worried, maybe we
should just steal one.

DIGNAN
What are you talking about, Bob?

BOB
Can you use a coaster.

Bob slides a coaster under Dignan's glass.

ANTHONY
Did you ever steal a car before?

BOB
Yeah. I've stolen two cars before.
One Jaguar. And one Trans-Am. With
T-Tops. That Trans-Am was fun to
drive.

DIGNAN
You stole a Trans-Am.

BOB
Yes. I did.

DIGNAN
OK, Bob.

BOB
It's true, Dignan.

DIGNAN
Well. What do you want to do? You
want to steal one or just drive
your car?

BOB
(thinks for a minute)
I'll just drive my car.

INT. DELI. DAY

Anthony's playing pinball at a machine in the back of a
little grocery store. Dignan's watching.

DIGNAN
Anthony, we'll get two hundred for
the coin collection alone. That's
less than what it's appraised at.

ANTHONY
But Dignan, do you really know that
much about rare coins?

DIGNAN
I know about money, Anthony. I know
the value of money. Plus the
earrings are worth three times that.

Anthony looks at Dignan. Dignan points at the pinball machine.

DIGNAN
Your ball.

Dignan tries to hit the flipper.

ANTHONY
I told you not to take the earrings.

Anthony keeps looking at Dignan. Dignan doesn't look up from
the machine. Anthony turns and walks away.

DIGNAN
You got another ball.

Dignan watches him go.

DIGNAN
I'm playing your game.

EXT. SIDEWALK. DAY

They're walking fast down the sidewalk.

ANTHONY
The list, Dignan. I know you
remember the list because you
signed it. "Things Dignan was not
supposed to touch."

DIGNAN
Every valuable item in the house
was on that list.

ANTHONY
That doesn't make any difference. I
bought those earrings for my mother
on her birthday. They have a very
special value for her.

DIGNAN
Yeah, but I can't be sorting
through
that shit in the middle of
a burglary. There's just not time
for it.

ANTHONY
Then you shouldn't of gone in
there, Dignan. Maybe we should have
robbed your house. Did you ever
think of that?

Dignan stops walking. Anthony looks back at him. Pause.

ANTHONY
What?

Dignan turns and starts walking the other way.

ANTHONY
Where are you going?

DIGNAN
I don't appreciate you ridiculing me.

ANTHONY
How was I ridiculing you?

DIGNAN
You're making fun of my family. You
know there's nothing to steal from
my mom and Craig. You know exactly
what you're saying.

ANTHONY
That's not what I meant, Dignan.

They both see something. They keep walking. Dignan looks
back down the sidewalk.

DIGNAN
Did you see that?

ANTHONY
Yeah, I saw it.

DIGNAN
I'm lookout.

ANTHONY
Dignan, it's got an alarm.

DIGNAN
I don't think so. Just reach on in.

ANTHONY
That sets it off.

DIGNAN
No, just do it real quick.
(starts down the sidewalk)
I'll meet you down there.

Dignan cuts into an alley. Anthony turns back. Looks at a
parked car. Looks left and right. Walks to the car and
reaches in the half-open window.

An alarm goes off. Anthony unlocks the door and opens it.
Leans inside. Grabs a wallet off the seat.

A MAN standing on the sidewalk watches Anthony get out of
the car. Anthony looks at him, then walks down the sidewalk
not too fast. He turns down an alley and runs.

EXT. ALLEY. DAY

Anthony comes around the corner and meets Dignan beside a
dumpster. The alarm is still ringing in the distance.
Anthony starts looking through the wallet.

ANTHONY
It had an alarm.

DIGNAN
Yeah, I heard that.

ANTHONY
(counting the money)
Five, seven, eight dollars.

He looks at Dignan.

DIGNAN
(taking the wallet)
Holy shit. What'd I tell you?

ANTHONY
Eight dollars.

DIGNAN
That's not bad.

Anthony keeps looking at Dignan. Dignan smiles. He hands
Anthony a five dollar bill. Anthony looks at it. He takes it.
He puts it in his pocket. Dignan puts out his hand to shake.
Anthony waits a second. He shakes Dignan's hand for just a
second and walks down the alley. Dignan smiles and walks
behind him.

INT. HAMBURGER PLACE. NIGHT

Anthony and Dignan are sitting at a table with Bob.

ANTHONY
What do herbs have to do with it? I
don't understand the --

BOB
Pot is a herb. It's just like any
type of gardening.

DIGNAN
How much could you grow?
Realistically.

BOB
As much as I want. When these
plants bud I'll probably have about
six thousand dollars worth of weed.

DIGNAN
Six thousand dollars? Come on, Bob.

BOB
You should take a look. I have an
entire crop in my backyard.

ANTHONY
In your backyard? How do you
protect them?

BOB
It's private property. Plus I have
Hector.

ANTHONY
Hector woudn't do anything.

BOB
But he's got a loud bark. That's
the most important thing is a loud
bark.

DIGNAN
If it's that easy why doesn't
everybody grow them?

BOB
Good question.

Bob looks at Anthony and Dignan. He suddenly gets worried.

BOB
Don't you guys tell anybody about
my plants.

DIGNAN
You're paranoid, Bob.

BOB
Yeah, but don't tell anybody.

ANTHONY
Could you grow cinnamon?

BOB
I don't know. Sure, I guess.

ANTHONY
You could make your own cinnamon
toast.

Bob looks at Anthony for a second. He looks at Dignan. Back
at Anthony.

BOB
Are you a fag?

LITTLE RICHARD
You're the faggot.

Bob turns around to see LITTLE RICHARD, short but muscular,
wearing a down vest and a baseball cap.

BOB
Little Richard. I don't believe it.
They'll let anybody in this place.
Sit down.

Little Richard sits down.

BOB
Dignan and Anthony, this is Little
Richard. He's crazy. Totally nuts.

LITTLE RICHARD
(smiling)
I don't know about that.

BOB
Little Richard. Trust me. You're
insane. Jesus, this guy used to
carry a percussion bomb around in
his trunk. You do not want a guy
like that loose on the streets.

LITTLE RICHARD
It seemed like a good idea at the
time.

BOB
The one and only Little Richard.

DIGNAN
Are you named after THE Little
Richard?

LITTLE RICHARD
(stares at Dignan)
Ha! Ha! Ha! Why don't you stick it
up your ass. Great group of guys
you're hanging out with.

Little Richard goes out the door.

DIGNAN
What was that all about?

BOB
I can't believe you said that.

DIGNAN
What did I say?

BOB
I told you he's crazy.

ANTHONY
But he didn't say anything.

DIGNAN
Hang on a second.

Dignan gets up and walks out of the restaurant. Anthony and
Bob look at each other. They start to get up.
