Paden gives Cobb an odd glance but smiles.
It evened out in the end. They locked me up, but the dog sprung me.
Cobb and Slick laugh, but Stella just watches Paden.
Where’s the dog now?
He left me.
Cobb takes the bottle and a couple glasses.
C’mon, Paden, I’ll buy you a drink.
Cobb leads Paden to a table in the corner. As Paden sits down, Cobb drops the pouch on the table. Paden glances at
the contents as Cobb pours the drinks.
I took out thirteen dollars.
This is a lot of money.
I told you this was a sweet set-up.
It is that.
Maybe you could run it without Stella.
Paden looks sharply at Cobb. With some heat —
This is her life. I’ll go before she does.
Cobb is amused but not surprised.
Easy, boy. Just an idea.
Well, thanks, but forget it.
