The Numbers Guy

INT. Dark Cavern

ADRIANO walks into the cavern, where three HOODED FIGURES are waiting to meet him.

ADRIANO: (thick Brooklyn accent) Look, first let me thank you fellas for giving me this opportunity. I've been working the mines for a lotta years and I appreciate getting this call up. I know you got other candidates in mind, but let me tell you why I'm your...

HOODED FIGURE #1: I think we...

ADRIANO: Let finish my fucking thought, Christ Almighty. Fucking guy. Excuse my language. I just know I'm the right guy and I've been thinking a lot about it. Anyway, here's the thing. I'm a numbers guy, always have been. When other fucks can't see past their own street corners, here I am looking at the big picture. You know what I mean. I've been a lotta things, but it always comes back to who can look at the big picture. That's me.

HOODED FIGURE #2: Adriano, the...

ADRIANO: Look, here's the thing. I don't know who all you're looking at for this thing here, but I'm your guy. I know Ghengis is being looked at for this. He's my guy and all, I would never disrespect him, I'm a Catholic. You know that, but this isn't his thing. He's not fucking right for this. You need someone to put fear into people, chop off some fucking heads, sure that's him. The big picture, though? That's not him. He had his own numbers guy, he had a bunch of numbers guys. You looking to raise someone up who's got to fucking raise up some other fucking people to do the fucking job you hired him for, or are you looking to hire the guy who's gonna get it done? I mean what...

HOODED FIGURE #3: Look, Adriano...

ADRIANO: Is that you Beezle? Look I respect you, I think you're good for this outfit, but don't you ever fucking disrespect me. I love you, you know that. You're a stand up guy, but don't you ever disrespect me. I got balls that touch the fucking ground. You disrespect me, I will fucking smack you right up your thick skull. Who the fuck do you think I am? What is this? You already give the job to Ghengis? Let me tell you something. Some fuck like Ghengis comes to where I come from and starts talking about, "come out of your house so I can kill you, or stay there and I'll kill you and your family," let me tell you. That guy is getting two in his fucking skull. There's no big picture in his fucking head. He doesn't know how it fucking is. When I first heard heard you need someone to run the charity golf tournament I thought, well who's gonna look after the profit? Huh? Who's gonna grease the palms? You think that's what Ghengis does? I'm not asking here, I'm telling you, I'm your guy.

HOODED FIGURE #2: Adriano, we'll let you know. For now, go back to the mines.

ADRIANO: You think I'm just gonna...

Hellfire surrounds ADRIANO sending him back to the mines screaming.

HOODED FIGURE #1: I don't know about you guys, but I think I like him for this.
