Nothing to Lose (1997) Script

Where do I start?

It's not you.

Well, actually, it is you.

Look, I'm just not--

I'm not attracted to you any more.

I need space.

You kinda--

You kinda gross me out.

In the beginning, it was different. In the beginning, you were better.

But then I got to know you reaI well, and...

I-- I came to realize...

I want a divorce. Why?

It's a physical thing.

Physical? Iīve been experimenting with other men lately.

A lot of other men and women.

I donīt know. I mean, Antonio can do this thing with his tongue... and Williamīs stamina is amazing.

And as far as hands go, well, your fatherīs hands are--

You are no match. I have no equal.

Get down here.

If the shoe fits I want you to wear it and wear it good

So, which one of you wanted to see me?

Anyway, I was supposed to have dinner with McGinty tonight. Iīd love for you to stand in for me.

Man, I would have went back to that house and Iīd have pulled a Terminator on the front door.

Boom, boom, boom! Who the fuck do you think youīre playinī with, woman?

And Nick Beam ainīt puttinī up with that bullshit.

Sheīd have been crying, you know ? "Oh, Nick, oh, Nick, please take me back.

Persistent hillbilly motherfucker. He has every right to be.

You robbed him at gunpoint. You dick!

Hey, hey, youīre the one who threw the wallet out the fuckinī window.

You did know he was gonna turn first, didnīt ya?

You know what? It donīt even matter.

I'm alive! You alive, man!

Get out! - What? Get out!

What are you even thinking when you do something like that?

You think youīre never gonna get caught? We didnīt get caught.

Thatīs not the point. It's beetleheaded.

It's-- It's only a matter of time before you do get caught.

What is beetleheaded? It's a synonym for "stupid."

Oh. Well, hereīs a synonym for "procreation": Fuck you!

It's easy for you to point the finger when youīre sittinī on your rich ass in a big fuckinī house.

I'm not rich. Oh, yeah.

How bigīs your TV? What?

I say, how bigīs your TV? Fifty-inch.

Get in the car. Oh, please. Letīs not make this a social issue.

The point is that even if you wanted to rob a place, there are smarter ways to do it.

Enlighten me. A mask. Wear a mask.

You see, the police have this thing called a "lineup" and if someone recognizes you, you go to jail!

Oh, how about this for a novel idea? Case the place first.

Find out if thereīs a security camera or a hidden alarm.

Then again, why even rob a convenience store?

How much money could you possibly get? Two, three hundred dollars?

Then what? Youīre set for two days! Wow!

What do you know, lanky? I know you go for the big score.

One robbery, youīre set.

News flash, big slim.

People with big money, they protect it.

So you do a little research. Take Quality Design Group where I work.

My boss keeps a ton of cash in his vauIt.

At night, thereīs only two guards and a personaI security system.

Now, in this case, I happen to even know the code.

But even if I didnīt, I--


I got a booger in my nose?



You canīt trust banks, Nick.

The entire system could crumble at any second.

That bastardīs so heavily leveraged, it would wipe him out.

Wait a minute. Am I hearing you right?

Mr "High and Mighty" is gonna rob his boss?

You hear that, gila monsters?

Old Nick Beam here is gonna rob his boss!

I say, do you hear that, gila monsters?

You know what, Nick? Your wife really messed your head up bad, man.

Youīre serious?

How much he got? Only the bulk of his personal assets.

Six, seven hundred thousand. You what?

Hey, you gonna need some help. Oh, no, this has nothing to do with you.

Hey, I was present at the time of creative inspiration... which entitles me to partiaI ownership... in this criminalistic endeavour.

Get out. Maybe I'll just call Quality Design Group when we get back.

I want half.

Weīre gonna bury this asshole.

Sure, youīre right.

Monogamously challenged?

You know, this is an all right camera for a regular eight.

It's the best on the market. Let me explain something to you, Nick.

If you ainīt got digital, you ainīt got shit.

This has only got one C.C.D. chip.

Broadcast has three, Nick.

Donīt look at me like that. What, are you surprised I know shit?

The guy that sold me that camera just set up our computer network.

Windows NT? No. Just Windows.

Man, get out of here with that shit. Look, hereīs a nutty idea.

If you actually know something about this stuff, why not use that knowledge and get a job?

Take a good look at me.

Heīs not gonna call the cops. How do you know?

I had him rip the phone cord out of the wall.

Oh, man, come on. This is the shit.

This shit is the shit. This is the hellified love music.

I'm in bad shape over here. Ah, man, you know, maybe I can... tune you in to a nice A.M. station and get you some Donny Osmond.

Charlie, whatīs this? Slow down. Get the fuck out of here.

Pull over and turn the headlights off.

Yo, man, you couldīve gotten me a piece of licorice.

It's sour. So.

Still couldīve gotten me a piece.

I didnīt think of it. Oh, you didnīt think of it.

Just seIfish, man. Guess thatīs the world.

You know? You just-- You just seIfish. Here.

Thatīs a very racist thing to say.

Oh, yeah? Good.

Oh, shit! Whoa, theyīre ramminī us.

Thanks for the late-breakinī news. Step on the gas, Nick!

I hate new cars.


Look at his face, man.

Come on, rubber legs. Letīs go. Watch where youīre walkinī.

Watch-- Watch your feet. There you go, baby.

Perhaps you two havenīt heard that my partner and I here... own the rights to all violent crime on this particular stretch of highway.

And we donīt take kindly to any unauthorized criminaI activities.

You donīt understand. We were--

Oh, shit. Thatīs my car.

Can I have your attention, please? Yeah.

I bet you used to sell more Girl Scout cookies than any other member of the whole troop, didnīt ya?

What were you calling yourseIf back then? Yolanda, you little bitch?

Cynthia? Susan? What was it? I canīt remember.

Hey, guys, I will be gentle. Donīt even worry about it. Huh?

Now-- Now, donīt even worry.


I have these.

Oh, now thatīs not gonna be enough.

Whereīd you put your booty?

Now I've done it. I finally found someone I like less than you.

Shit. Thatīs a fancy case, friend.

You know, when a sweet-mouthed girl like you has a fancy case like this... a man gets to thinkinī whereīs the wallet?

Thatīs it. Weīre dead, man.

I'm gonna need that wallet, Alice.

Whereīs that big, fat wallet? Give it to me.

Give me your fuckinī wallet, you little bitch.

You know what? Nick, Nick, what you doinī?

I'm sure youīre a really scary guy.

I'm sure that, normally, people just quiver at the very sound of your voice.

But, you see, l, I canīt see that right now. l-l-I just see a weak, desperate little man... that probably grew up torturing little animals.

Some puny, little uncoordinated... canīt-make-the-football-team-so-I'll-pick-on- third-graders-and-steal-their-lunch-money punk, jerk-off bully that one day wakes up and realizes heīs nothing.

Just a sad, pathetic, useless, illiterate piece of inbred shit.

I just want you to know, I totally disagree.

Time to die. That just makes you my best friend.

All right, drop the fuckinī gun.

Drop the fuckinī gun!

Give me this, motherfucker.

Now back the fuck up before I kick you in your bitch-ass chin.

Back the fuck up! I said, back the fuck up!

Didnīt I say, back the fuck up? Everybody, back the fuck up.



You shot me. I'm sorry, Nick.

Put down the gun. Shut up.

You shot me. I said, I'm sorry, man. I- I- I didnīt mean it.

The gun just went off.

You know, I have that same trouble in bed.

Well, rarely. Every once in a great while.

Put down that gun, you idiot. Would you shut up? I'm shot here.

You shut the fuck up. Who the hell do you think you are?

Nick, why the hell you start up with that guy, man?

You shot me. I'm sorry.

You shot me. I'm sorry.

You donīt say youīre sorry when you shoot someone.

You say youīre sorry when you step on someoneīs toe... or you accidentally break their glasses... or you, you fart while theyīre eating.

You-- You donīt say youīre sorry when you shoot someone!


Oh, my God. It's going numb. It's going numb. It's going numb.



Oh, my God!

Nick, thatīs the most hideous thing I ever seen.

Hey, yo, man, you know, maybe if you wrap your arm in ice... they can reattach it.
