Jackie Cogan is an enforcer for the mob. When a high-stakes card game is heisted by unknown hoodlums, Cogan is called in to “handle” the problem. Moving expertly and ruthlessly among a variety of criminal hacks, hangers-on, and bigger-time crooks—a classic cast of misfits animated by Higgins’s hilarious, cracklingly authentic dialogue—Cogan gets to the root of the problem and, with five consecutive shots from a Smith & Wesson thirty-eight Police Special, restores order to his corner of the underworld.

Don`t make me lough. We are one people. It`s a myth created by Thomas Jefferson. - Oh, now you gonna have a go at Jefferson? - My friend. Jefferson`s an American saint ...

because he wrote the words, "All men are created equal" ...

words he clearly didn`t believe, since he allowed his own children to live in slavery. He was a rich wine snob who was sick of paying taxes to the Brits ...

So. Yeah. He wrote some lovely words and aroused the rabble ...

and they went out and died for those words ...

while he sat back and drank his wine and fucked his slave girl. (at president, on TV screen) - This guy want to tell me we`re living in community. Don`t make me lough. I`m living in America, and in America you`re on your own. America`s not a country. It`s just a business. Now fucking pay me. ------- ...do not make me laugh. We are one people ...

This myth was created by Thomas Jefferson. "Oh, and Jefferson didn`t please you?" - My friend, Jefferson, an American saint, because he wrote, - All people are created equal. In which he clearly did not believe, since he left his children enslaved. A wealthy snob who didn`t want to pay taxes to Britain. He sprinkled beautiful words and raised people who went to die for these words, while he himself sat, drank expensive wine and fucked his slave. (pointing to the TV screen, with the president speaking) - He says that we live in a society? Let it not flood! I live in America, and in America it is every man for himself. America is not a country. America is just a business. So go ahead and pay me. -------- Jackie Cogan / Brad Pitt
