Its true boss he’s lyin’.
You sure he knows?
Oh he knows boss.
How can you be sure?
He’s got a map.
How do you know it’s THE map?
It’s got a cross on it.
Yes an X marks the spot.
Oh so Lenny you have a map?
Don’t know nothin’ ‘bout nothin’.
Lenny you’ll soon be without a leg to stand on.
You mangy varmints ain’t getting’ nothin’ from me.
But Lenny you have what I want.
Do ya worst.
You don’t wanna tempt me Lenny. You have more than one leg, two arms and other bits that I doubt you’d miss.
Not the magic bits, don’t touch the magic bits.
No! No! I’ll tell you anything. Please don’t touch the magic bits.
In my other boot.
Well it looks like a map.
What’s it say boss?
Alphie did you see this map before?
Yes boss I was telling about the X.
This X here?
Yes that’s the one. We gonna be rich boss?
You idiot, this X stands for a rail way crossing.
