    Ridin' In No Trunk

    Beaumont: Man, you must be out of your f*ckin' mind if you think I'm gonna get in this dirty-*ss trunk.
    Ordell: We ain't going nowhere but to Koreatown, man. You ain't gonna be locked in here no more than ten minutes.

      That's Beaumont

      Louis: Who's that?
      Ordell: That's Beaumont.
      Louis: Who's Beaumont?
      Ordell: An employee I had to let go.
      Louis: What'd he do?
      Ordell: He put himself in a position where he was going to have to do ten years in prison, that's what he did. And if you know Beaumont, you know ain't no goddamn way he can do ten years. And if you know that, then you know Beaumont's gonna do anything Beaumont can to keep from doing them ten years, including telling the federal government any and every muthaf*ckin' thing about my black *ss. Now that, my friend, is a clear-cut case of him or me. And you best believe it ain't gonna be me.
