Ding Dong Bitch
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Hump Day. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 13 of THE HEISTERS, Kelsey meets with her gang to figure out a plan to try and find the money that was stolen from their bank job ...
INT. RONAN’S HOTEL ROOM - DAY
Blinds are drawn. A heavy haze
of smoke hangs in the air.
And the smell of sweat.
Everyone’s seated on the couch,
the floor, and all available chairs.
Becky puts a bowl of chips
and dip on the coffee table.
If you didn’t know better,
you’d think it was a party.
(glares at Jefty)
But I still say how do we know
it wasn’t one of us?
If YOU ripped off a million bucks,
would YOU still be in town?
If someone was doing a cross,
they would stick around.
A cover, you know --
I didn’t do it --
(looks at Ludo)
Well, that WOULD be the perfect cover.
Steal the dough, then stay holed up
like the rest of us --
And maybe they had some HELP --
But then on the other hand,
some of us were alone the whole time --
HEY. I fucking PUT THIS JOB TOGETHER.
You think I’m going to double cross
all of you?
Happens all the time --
ENOUGH, all of you.
I had the fucking money, I was
gone for TEN FUCKING MINUTES,
and nobody knew where I was except RONAN,
who I called right after the shit went down.
There’s NO WAY he could of have done it --
If we’re going to get the money back,
we’re going to have to work together,
and not BICKER like a bunch of
fucking school girls, GOT IT?
(off their stares)
Alright. It’s settled --
Now, like I told you, Jackie Tempel
was stabbed through the neck
with a samurai sword he
had hanging over the bed.
That makes it a crime of passion,
so we’re looking for some chick
he was seeing -- and dumped.
Or cheated on.
And how are we going to find HER?
Kelsey pulls out the kid’s cell.
Holds it up. Smiles.
I grabbed his phone.
And looking through all the names on it,
we’ve got ourselves a nice little list
So what’s the plan, then?
We’ve got five names --
I want each of you to check out
one of them. Tonight.
You want us to play ding-dong bitch?
What are you going to do?
I’m going to pay a little visit
to the homicide detective
in charge of the case.
See if there are any names
we don’t know about.
But won’t that be -- dangerous?
Not a problem.
Danger is my business --
