R-Z drink w Ferra in Casab e/r Saigon
FERRARI

Zup, so good to see you. I hear sadly that you’re moving legal goods.A mail man, no less? Surely you can do better.

ZUP

Well I’m happy with what I’ve got. It’s mostly legal. I lost my stomach andmy confidencefor the other stuff.

RICK

But not your poor choice of friends.

FERRARI

Confidence is a renewable resource.()Friends, good or bad, less so.

ZUP

I’d need new friends

FERRARI

I have just the thing.

RICK

I’m sure you do.

Look I have some frustrated cargo just east of here, practically on your way to Saigon. Rick, I hear you’ve taken the Mediterranean waters in previous lives.

RICK

You did, did you?

Baleful look at ZUP

FERRARI

I asked around. Friends tell me you know how to move product. Are you interested in the job?

RICK

Thank you, but I’m over-qualified for the position.Besides we’re on our way to Saigon. Supposed to be nice this time of year.

FERRARI

Looks at ZUP, laughs

Zup, your choice of friends is improving.

So, you remember the black sheep of my family,Andreas of Djibouti?

ZUP

Yup– I’ve enjoyed taking his money at the poker table on more than one occasion.

FERRARI

That simple-minded drunk is an even worse poker player now, and an incompetent liar.

He’s gambled away half my product sitting in Italian warehouses.I could use a good man to go there and take charge. Someone who knows how to get things done. Get my goods back over here. I have some anxious and very interested buyers.

RICK

Yeah who?

FERRARI

Some well-connected Spaniards. But that does not matter now. I need someone to show my son a thing or too. Someone to guide him, show him how to conduct business.

RICK

You’re a hypocrite! Sounds like you don’t give a shit about your son. You just want your “goods” moved.

FERRARI

Nevertheless, you’ll be well paid. And if you happen to incur some extra expenses,welllll….we could allow for some carrying charges.

 

RICK

Sounds like a family affair. I’m not a family man. Thanks for the drink. Nice bird.
