Yo!

You're the fucking man, Gio!

Congrats!

Thanks, Ange.

(SOFT MUSIC PLAYING)

Are you okay?

Uh, yeah, why?

It's been like... 15 minutes.

Do you want me to keep going?

Uh, sure.

(ENGINE IDLING)

So, uh, what are you doin' now?

Probably grab some food.

North Shore?

Sorry... full booth tonight.

Yeah, bullshit it's full!

No, I'm not seeing Robocop.

I know, I hate cops and I hate robots.

Guys, I know I sound like a broken record, but...

The Princess Bride is like the best thing...

I've seen in like five years.

You don't wanna tell people that.

I saw it with my father last weekend.

That makes it... Now I'm thinking about it... nonstop, it was so good. That makes it even worst.

Saw it last week with my father? They're not fuckin' into it.

Hey, Didi. Didi!

The usual. The same.

I'll have the same.

What was that?

What? The menu?

I was just... wondering what else they have.

After three years of coming here?

Yeah, maybe there's something else.

Better than a double cheeseburger deluxe... side of disco fries and a Coke?

Not... better just... different.

Cubbies comin' to town this week.

GIO: Yeah? ANT: Mm-hm.

Gonna be a lot of nice cars, Benzis, Beemers.

We should do a run. Definitely.

Let me come.

Again, Ant?

Why not?

You know why, you'd fuck it up.

You don't know that.

What we do, you gotta be cool under pressure.

It takes a certain amount of cool. And you...

You ain't exactly Steve McQueen.

No, yeah, you're not Bullitt.

Okay I have other skills though... I've, I've...

Like what?

I can fit through windows better than you guys can... fuckin', beefy gorilla-type.

Ladies like it.

Ladies like it, a certain kind of lady, not a very smart lady.

Are you sayin' we don't get smart chicks?

I'm saying there's a correlation... between the kind of hot girls you get... and the kind, dumb girls you get.

Wow! Correlation, that's a big word!

Thank you. I've been studying, my brother's got a Thesaurus.

Jesus!

He does.

ANNOUNCER (OVER RADIO): El Sid, turning up the heat, he has now struck out six... in four and two thirds innings and the first two hits...

Lenny, watch the counter.

Let's see what you got.

Not bad. Not bad.

Where you go?

I'm gonna get a slice with the boys.

No, you eat with the famiglia.

All you do is go out... (SPEAKING ITALIAN)

It's Friday night, of course I'm gonna go out.

Ogni sera, Friday night, every night, every night...

Friday night, you go out every night!

You gotta think of the future, Gio, il futuro!

Gio, a nice girl.

Some of 'em are real nice.

What kinda girl you think you gonna find... on the street, on the boulevard?

Una puttana!

Huh? You think I meet-ah you mother on the street?

Aw, fuck!

Oh...

Good evening, Officer Brant.

What did we talk about the other night, Gio?

The catalytic converter.

Oh, uh... it's attached.

I can hear your exhaust from Flushing.

You think I cut off my converter?

Oh, come on!

Attach it.

Seventy fuckin' five?

Jesus! What? What, dollars?

Yeah, I...

No, drachmas, you fuckin' goon, what is wrong with you?

Dude, what the fuck, you don't have to yell.

I'm gettin' a cone.

ANNOUNCER (OVER RADIO): The same, old music...

Look, I don't care what you say, Cookie Puss is not a cat.

Dude, why would they call him "Puss" if he wasn't a cat?

He's a space alien, do you not see the commercial?

He's a space alien... he's a cat from outer space!

Yeah... what, what are you doing?

Oof... that is a one, lucky cone.

What's your name? Francesca.

Francesca what?

Russo.

Francesca Russo.

All right, just to give you a heads up... in about a year, it's gonna be Francesca Fortunato.

Is that so? Just thought you should know... in case you, you know, order new checks and whatnot.

That's very considerate of you. I'm a very considerate guy.

Where you from, Francesca?

Brooklyn. Brooklyn, nice.

Where exact?

Bay Ridge. Bay Ridge.

You got the Verrazano, we got the Whitestone, mini version.

Do you come here often?

Ah, y'know...

How's it I never seen you?

Lotta people...

I'da noticed you.

Gio.

Fortunato. Hm, smart girl.

So, when's the wedding? You and me?

As soon as possible.

Where are you going? Dress shopping.

Can I get your number?

Nah.

Well, how about I give you my beeper?

No, I'm good... I'll...

(ENGINE STARTING)

I'll see you at the chapel.

You seriously don't want my beeper?

Are you fuckin' kidding me?

Go get her, Romeo!

(MUSIC PLAYING)

What do you want?

What do you think he wants? He wants to... fuck you!

Is she right?

You want to fuck me?

I mean... yeah.

Wait. You're not actually...

Okay.

Okay...?

Okay, let's fuck.

(MOANING)

GIO: Aw, fuck!

Do I get your number now?


That's my beeper.

Are you hungry?

Me and my boys are gonna hit the diner.

You're welcome to come.

ANT: She said no?

You invited her to the diner and she said no.

Maybe she's playing hard to get.

Who plays hard to get after you fuck them?

Guys... every guy on Earth.

It makes no sense. She liked me.

Did she come? Of course, she came.

You sure? Yeah, I'm sure.

I don't know, cuz.

Doesn't sound like Cabriolet got properly dicked.

Fuck off!

Get that Carbone bastone, know what I'm saying?

(PHONE RINGS) Huh?

I'm guessing that wasn't...


(CALL RINGING)

AUTOMATED VOICE (OVER PHONE): We're sorry, you have reached a number... that has been disconnected or is no longer in service.

If you feel you have reached this recording in error... please check the number and try your call again.

No fucking way!

Yeah, it's impossible.

It's like... like two plus two equals five.

Are you gonna eat your pizza?

CARBONE: Aw, it happens, cuz.

Not to Gio Fortunato.

Maybe she wrote it down wrong. Her own number?

Oh, hell yes!

Porsches are tough.

Not for Chris Carbone.

Remember that 944, at the temple?

Just pull the fuck over!

Fuckin' idiot, hurry up!


Jesus Christ.

You're spotted.

Let's go!

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(GLASS SMASHING) (CAR ALARM BLARING)

What the fuck you doin'?

God-fucking-damn it.

Fucking idiot.

Fucking asshole! Get in the fuckin' car!

Whoo! Are you fuckin' crazy?

Jesus Christ! I got it, though!

Fuckin' Nakamichi, bro! Oh, shit!

That's what I'm talking about! Yeah!

Fuck, yeah! Whoa, yeah!

Three hundo, easy, cuz.

Video Vic's gonna cream his fuckin' sweatpants.

What the fuck? What are you doing?

Hello?

Depeche Mode.

When? They just announced. Two at the Garden, one at Nassau.

Francesca... Francesca!

Francesca?

Oh my God, is that... him? Your Italian stallion?

Hey...

I'm not really Francesca.

My name's Jessica... Jessica Weinberg.

Francesca's my bad-girl alias, yes.

Oh my God!

The fuck was that?

Cabriolet.

That's Cabriolet?

Fuckin' JAP was playing dress-up.

Thought it'd be fun to play guidette for a night.

Take a little walk on the wild side, cunt!

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): Hello?

Yeah, I got a call from this number?

Gio?

GIO (OVER PHONE): And this is...?

Uh... Jessica.

Francesca-Jessica.

What do you want?

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): I just wanted to call and say "I'm sorry."

I-I didn't think I would ever see you again.

Surprise, surprise.

You must think I'm such an asshole.

GIO (OVER PHONE): Nah.

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): Jappy, little suburban girl... having her little adventure in Queens.

Well, yeah, pretty much.

I actually had a really good time.

It was the most fun I've had all summer.

It's so boring in Great Neck, you can't imagine.

Why do you live there?

I'm just home for the summer.

Yeah?

I'm in college, I go to Brown.

Oh... Brown... okay... um... where's that at?

Rhode Island...

I should've stayed in Providence this summer.

What the hell was I thinking?

I don't know... maybe you were thinking you'd meet a real, cool guy.

So tell me something, Jessica Weinberg...

Yeah?

GIO (CONT'D): Why are you calling me?

I told you... to apologize.

GIO (OVER PHONE): Nah, that can't be it.

What do you mean?

You want something more.

Like?

GIO (OVER PHONE): You wanna see me again.

Oh... do I?

You do... told ya'.

I didn't say anything!

GIO (OVER PHONE): Oh, yes, you did, you said it all.

Oh, my God!

GIO (CONT'D): Look, you're obviously curious about the scene.

The scene?

The scene, the boulevard, Franny Lew.

Why don't you come back...

I'll give you a grand tour, show you the routine.

There's a routine? Of course, there's a routine.

When? Tonight.

You're going tonight?

I go every night.

We can't use my car tonight.

What's up?

It's all booked out.

Girl?

Cabriolet?

Are you fucking kidding me, man?

We talked, it's all good. You're joking.

She's cool. She's a fucking bitch!

That kosher pussy's gone to your fuckin' brain!

♪ Hit the beat now ♪

♪ Lost in emotion ♪ First thing you do, take a little lap around the bully.

The bully? The boulevard, Franny Lew.

Ahh.

Do a once-and-back, scope out the scene.

What are we looking for?

Just seein' who's out.

That's the Carvel Crew.

Sergio Tacchini guidos, Bon Jovi chicks.

Who's that?

Roid boys, juiceheads.

Oh, those are the Fry Guys.

Because of, like, McDonald's and...

They're all fried. Bingo.

Those are the Nicks.

Basketball? Greek.

Whitestone Lanes is the Glow-in-the-Dark Girls.

Hot guidettes with the neon.

That'd be your spot.

You think so?

Definitely. I could definitely see you as a Glow-In-The-Dark.

Ahh...

We should probably head up.

Head up where?

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

Mint.

Sick.

They're impressed.

They should be. It's a 3.8-liter sequential fuel injection turbo.

That sounds... fast.

It's the fuckin' Millennium Falcon.

Which would make you Solo.

Look at you with the "Star Wars"!

Why, 'cause I'm a girl? Yeah.

Ouch! Sexist.

So can it make the jump?

The jump? To hyperspace.

Why don't you find out for yourself?

(ENGINES REVVING)

Relax.

You're in good hands.

(ENGINES REVVING)

Three...

Two...

One.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)


You okay?

Whoo!

Fuck, yes.

You hungry?

Starved.

Thank you.

Hi. Hi.

Be nice or I'll kick your ass.

The usual. Same.

Oh um, I'll have the Mykonos salad with grilled chicken.

Hold the onions, please.

And to drink? Uh, Diet Coke.

How's the French Dip?

Very good.

I'll do that.

And a Sprite.

What?

So, Jessica...

How's your salad?

It's delicious, would you like a bite?

No, thank you.

So I hear you're from Great Neck.

I am. That's cool.

Not really, it's pretty much the opposite.

Oh, shit!

ANT: Oh, shit! GIO: Fuck yeah!

Lennie!

You like baseball? I do.

All right, good girl. Yankees all the way!

What the fuck, Yankees?

Get the fuck outta here! Yankees suck!

Don Mattingly, baby! What a bunch of fuckin' scrubs.

Ooh, Dan Pasqua, Bobby Meacham.

At least they're not a bunch of cokeheads.

Excuse me. What'd you just say?

Gooden, Hernandez, Strawberry... Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Mookie Wilson? You're telling me Mookie does blow?

Mookie's clean, man. Fine, one guy.

Don Mattingly, he fuckin' sucks off donkeys.

I don't think he does.

Now, Gary Carter on the other hand...

Whoa, whoa!

I mean she was hot, but not enough... to get me to sit through fuckin' "Dirty Dancing".

Fuckin' Heather Locklear couldn't get me... to sit through that shit.

I saw it and I actually liked it.

Says the person with the vagina.

What's the damage?

Like nine, ten each.

But you got the French Dip.

All right.

Gold card.

From my dad, he wants me to start building credit.

I got you. You sure?

Absolutely. Thanks.

Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you. You, too.

He's so cute.

Who? Anthony? Yeah.

He gets all ladies. Yeah?

Yeah. I like his car.

He's got it says "Greek God" on the license plate.

Because he's a Greek god.

CARBONE: Yo.

What's up?

C'mere.

What do you want?

C'mere.

Be right back.

What?

What the fuck?

Check it.

No stealing at the diner, strict rule.

EX-550, on a plate.

I got...

It'll take two seconds.

I don't want her to...

See what you do?

Fast.

Let's go.

Must be some kind of release.

Dude, hurry the fuck up.

Okay, scoot over, Jesus Christ!

Got it.

Son of a bitch.

Minchia!

Gotcha, bitch.

JESSICA: Gio, I left my lip gloss in the diner.

What are you doing?

We were just, uh... Stealing a radio.

What? It's what we do.

We steal car radios.

I'm sorry.

You never should've seen that.

My dad got his radio stolen...

I wonder if you took it.

Is that what you were doing in Great Neck?

Look, Jess...

So how does it work?

How does what work?

Stealing radios.

You're asking me how it works?

For our next date.

Show me.

You got your Becker, your Alpine and your Blaupunkt.

Those are the Big Three, okay?

BMWs come factory with Blaupunkt.

You see a Beemer, there's gonna be a Blaupunkt inside.

Same with Mercedes and the Becker.

So those are the two you look for?

Not necessarily.

They're worth a lot, but they're kind of a pain in the ass.

You gotta rip 'em out, wires and all.

Benzis, you just grab and go.

The pull-outs. Yeah.

Don't people take those with 'em?

Nine times out of ten, they're under the seat.

So Benzi's the way to go.

But you don't know what you're gonna get.

Bust into a Saab with a hole in the dash... there could be a Kenwood under the driver seat... or it could be some piece-of-shit Delco.

Fuckin' radio roulette.

Do nice cars ever have shit radios?

Ooh, all the time, and the reverse... you could see some piece of shit Gremlin with a Nakamichi in it.

Nakamichi, that's good?

That's the magic, purple unicorn.

This is wild.

So, like, how do you break in?

Metal bar, slips right in the door.

You don't smash the window? That's for amateurs.

What if an alarm goes off? You run.

Have you ever been caught? Never.

Would you go to jail? Not for long.

Oh, my god.

All right, let's do it.

Right.

You see a "No Radio" sign, you know what that means?

Radio.

Wait, give it to me.

You said you were gonna show me how it's done.

Show you. I wanna do it.

Are you serious? Give me the fucking bar.

All right. Feel it.

Listen.

Hook it.

It's okay, I'm your lookout.

It's not here, there is nothing.

Check under the passenger seat.

They must've taken it. Pop the trunk.

How? Left, by the brights.

Okay.

Panasonic 410. Is that good?

It's a nice deck.

So, now what?

You take it.

(MUSIC FADES UP)

Hurry!

Get it! Go, go, go!

(MOANING)


I'm so happy I met you.

My summer was sucking majorly until you came along.

Happy I could help.

Let's go to the city.

Manhattan?

Tomorrow. We'll hit the Village.

Sure.

Do you go much?

To the city? Y'know...

You?

As much as humanly possible.

Trust.

Around here's my first choice.

I'm sure my parents would rather get me a studio... on the Upper East, but no way.

We'll probably end up compromising on Gramercy.

I'm sure they'll insist on a building with a doorman.

They want me to find an investment property... we can buy with my Bat Mitzvah money.

I figure I'll start with a gallery job... unpaid for a year or two, but who cares, y'know?

Be an assistant, work in Soho.

Castelli, Mary Boone, that's how you get in the door.

Make connections, build a rep.

I'm gonna open my own gallery... one day and discover the next Basquiat.

Who? Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Oh, we are covering it all today.

Jean-Michel. What is he, French?

He's Haitian, he's from Brooklyn.

Yeah? Yeah.

He was a graffiti kid, dropped out of high school.

Sounds familiar.

Maybe you're in training to be the next great artist.

Except I can't paint for shit.

Not that that stopped him.

Picasso said it took him four years to paint like Raphael... but a lifetime to paint like a child.

Mm, all I know is, this guy needs some fuckin' lessons.

Yeah, well...

Tell that to the guy who just paid $50,000 for one.

Fifty grand?

So what do you wanna do?

I don't know. Maybe go grab some dinner?

No, with your life.

My life?

Yeah, you can't be a radio thief forever.

I don't know. I haven't really thought about it.

How is that possible?

I'm just kinda livin', ya' know?

Okay... if you could do anything you wanted...

I can't. Sure you can.

Says who? Says me, you're so smart.

What?

What's so funny?

I just... I've been called a lot of things.

You're totally smart, you just haven't been exposed.

Exposed to what?

To the world, fucking New York!

You don't know. She thinks she's better than us.

No, she doesn't. I saw her at the diner... throwing around her fucking Gold Card like she's the shit.

She was paying. She doesn't carry cash.

You're a fuckin' idiot.

You actually think she's serious about you?

You think she's keeping you around when she goes back... to her fancy-ass college in the fall?

You're a summer toy, her Guido bad-boy.

We're having a good time. I know.

We always have a good time. I know.

So let's keep it going.

I got a busy day. I gotta pack, I gotta help my mom buy a dress for my cousin's wedding.

Not tonight, I don't just mean tonight.

I leave in a couple weeks. So?

I go to school in a different state.

I got a car, a fuckin' fast one.

How far is Providence? 180 miles.

Okay, that's like an hour drive.

Gio...

We're just...

We're just different.

What?

So, who gives a shit?

We are having a summer fling, Gio.

Stop, don't say that. We're having a summer fling.

What'd you think, we're gonna get married?

I didn't say that.

I didn't say that.

It's been fun, really, really fun, but, you know... we're just on... different tracks.

I'm not good enough for your track?

I didn't say that. What the...

I'm not fucking good enough for your track?

Hey, I did not say that.

You know what I think?

I don't think this has shit to do with tracks.

I think... it's because you're a pussy.

Excuse me?

You like to act all Miss Rebel, with your Washington Square... and your New Order and your little fuckin' art galleries... but deep down, deep down... you're scared.

Oh, I'm scared of what? Of everything... pissing off your parents, freaking out your friends.

You like doing ballsy shit?

Stealing cars, doing blow?

I got something real ballsy for you... date me... be my fuckin' girlfriend, now that'd be ballsy.

Yeah...

I didn't think so.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

Good luck.

Have a nice life.

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): Hello?

Hey.

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): Gio... What's up?

I hate how things ended.

It's okay.

You're right, I am a pussy.

I think I'm so fuckin' edgy and rebellious...

Hey, it's all right.

JESSICA (OVER PHONE): No, it's not.

This is awkward, can we talk in person?

GIO (OVER PHONE): No. I'm coming over.

Jessica, listen to me, do not...

I'm coming over, besides, I have your coke.

I don't know how I ended up with it... but I can't leave it in here, so...

Jessica? ...I'll see you in a few.

(HANGS UP PHONE)

(MUSIC FADES UP)

What?

Hey! Thanks for coming!

Why don't you get out of the car?

What's in the bag?

What the...

Is this a fucking joke?

I told you not to come! I thought because you were mad.

Yeah I am mad, but mostly 'cause the fucking gun to my head.

When you found this, there was 500 grams.

And now...

Weight Watchers? It's all I could find.

425.

You momos gave out... 75 grams of coke tonight?

We're pretty fuckin' high.

Pretty fuckin' high?

Now... let's see what you owe.

75 grams... times $80 a gram.

Six grand.

ANT: Six grand? I ain't got six grand!

Six grand, you owe me six grand!

You could get that. Excuse me?

Ask your parents.

Oh, sure, "Mom, Dad, can I borrow $6,000... to pay back a drug dealer?"

Drug dealer?

Sorry.

I'm a fucking businessman.

Businessman. Entrepreneur.

One hour.

You give me one hour, I'll get you the money.

JESSICA: Gio...

(MUSIC FADES UP)


Gio, how you doin'?

Yo, listen up!

We got somebody here looking for a little pink-slip action.

Who here's got the cojones to take on Gio Fortunato... in a pink-slip race?

Winner take all, or car, I should say.

Who's it gonna be?

Win, and you're the proud owner of his fuckin' bad-ass...

Grand National, fastest car on the strip.

Yeah, that's the problem.

Car length head start!

GIO: Two cars!

JESSICA: I'm sorry.

It's okay... it's not your fault.

Actually, it kinda is.

My fault?

The whole stealing-the-car thing.

You invited me. I just came along for one of your runs.

Nah, there was no run, I don't steal cars.

I never stole a car in my life.

So then... why?

I just wanted to see you again.

I should go.
