Billions – “Thank you for doing your civic duty.”

Come on. Ho, ho, ho, ho. Take it easy there, fella. Excuse me, sir.
What? You didn’t clean up after your dog.
Yeah, I forgot the bag today.
Oh, I don’t think so because, you know, it’s not just the statutory law, it’s the law of civility, man. And I’ve seen you before. You come out of that building, your dog craps, and you just leave it where it falls.
Why don’t you mind your business?
This is my business.
Oh, you’re that guy.
I am that guy.
All right, well, do you have an extra bag?
No, no. See, I used mine.
Well, I’ll get it next time.
No, I think you need to get it this time.
Why don’t you let it slide?
“Let it slide.” That sounds simple, easy. Sure, let it slide. That’s just some dog sh1t. But those are three devious little words. You know, if… if I let your dog sh1t slide, then I have to be okay with this whole plaza filling up with it, which it would before we know it. Oh, then it would be on our pant legs and our shoes, and we would track it into our homes, and then our homes would smell like sh1t, too. It’d be easy to let it slide. You know, why don’t we, uh, why don’t we let petty larceny slide, too? Some kid steals five bucks from a newsstand? Who cares? Well, maybe next time he decides to steal your TV or break into your brownstone and steal your f#cking wife. But what difference does it make? Because by then, we’re all living in sh1t anyway.
Come on, man. I don’t have a bag.
You have hands.
What?
Use your hands.
Or? Come on, man. Come on, buddy.
There we go. Thattaboy. That’s the spirit. Ugh. Yeah?
Eastern’s moved on Decker. They pinched one of his guys. Looks like he’s cooperating.
He’s gonna flip on Decker? Are you f#cking kidding me? We… Goddamn it. Hold on. Hold on. Sir, there’s still some over here.
That’s not Bobo’s, man.
It is now.
f#ck. Really?
Yeah. Well, if they have Decker…then they have Axelrod, and we don’t. We know where this came from. It’s f*cking Spyros. Yeah, you know, while we’re chasing down Birch, that glory hound gets Eastern to look into Decker. Hold on just a second. Sir? Thank you for doing your civic duty. Feels good, doesn’t it?
