The Cousins Bellic/Script
Things spoken in a different language are in italics.
Dave Bosoy: Daddy's back, you bitches... Daddy's back, you bitches!
Niko Bellic: Dave, come on. [knocking on door] Come on Dave.
Hossan Ramzy: Niko? What are you doing?
Niko Bellic: Dave is not coming.
Hossan Ramzy: Ah, ignore him. Come on we got to get this thing ready before we dock.
(Niko Bellic and Hossan Ramzy climb a ladder to a higher deck)
Hossan Ramzy: Let's go. Here, pass me that. There. Whooh yeah! There she is... Liberty City.
Niko Bellic: Yeah.
Hossan Ramzy: You ever been?
Niko Bellic: No.
Hossan Ramzy: Crazy place, Niko.
Niko Bellic: What you going to do?
Hossan Ramzy: I might come back on board... or I might try to make a go of it. Like they say, it is the land of opportunity. I always wanted to make it big... own a nice place, get a dog, a house... live the dream!
Niko Bellic: Like my cousin.
Hossan Ramzy: Oh yeah?
Niko Bellic: Yes - he's got the lot - house, women, cars, parties... he writes me in these wild emails, and after I got into trouble, I thought maybe uh... and then I got this gig, and I spend the next seven months with you fine people and I forget... After the war finished, I couldn't get a job, nobody could... so I, uh, did some dumb things and got involved with some idiots...
Hossan Ramzy: Ahh, we all do dumb things... that's what makes us human.
Niko Bellic: Could be.
(Niko Bellic and Hossan Ramzy disembark and Niko waits for his cousin)
Roman Bellic: Niko! My cousin! I can't believe it! You're here!
Niko Bellic: Hey!
Roman Bellic: Welcome to America!
Niko Bellic: Good to see you, cousin.
Roman Bellic: What?
Niko Bellic: Good to see you, man - what, you forget our language?
Roman Bellic: Uhhh... cabbages? Maybe a little. I've been here 10 years! You can speak English. Remember, we learned off the English girls with the big...
Niko Bellic: Hey, a little... not so good.
Roman Bellic: Ahh, you'll be fine. Better than my Serbian. So good to see you cousin. I can't believe you made it! Ha! Shit... I have to tell you I had quite a night last night. Two women! The land of opportunity. I've made it!
(Roman Bellic stumbles around)
Roman Bellic: Shit, man, I'm still a touch drunk.
Niko Bellic: A touch?
Roman Bellic: My cousin is here!
Niko Bellic: Woah! Roman, Roman, come on, come on, relax.
Roman Bellic: We're going to rule the world!
Dock worker #1: Yeah, yeah, whatever, buddy. Just take over the world someplace else, alright?
Dock worker #2: Yeah, buddy! Take off!
Dock worker #1: You're in the Goddamn way.
Roman Bellic: Screw you... screw you all!
Dock worker #2: Hey, come on, man!
Roman Bellic: My cousin is here! Niko Bellic! He's the fucking man, bitches!
Niko Bellic: Roman, come on, let's go... to the mansion, eh?
Roman Bellic: Yes, the mansion! Whoa.
(Roman Bellic stumbles)
Roman Bellic: Maybe you should drive...
Niko Bellic: Maybe I should.
Roman Bellic: Okay!
Niko Bellic: Okay. Hey is this a cab? Where's the sports car?
Roman Bellic: Err, it's in the shop... come on!
(Niko Bellic begins to drive Roman Bellic back to his 'mansion')
Roman Bellic: Drive us to our place on Mohawk, it's just up the road. I'll let you know when we're there.
(Niko Bellic continues driving Roman Bellic home)
Niko Bellic: Why don't you show me around the city?
Roman Bellic: Fucking terrorists.
Niko Bellic: What?
Roman Bellic: Terrorists. There's been a big scare and you can't go across the bridges so good. You, without a visa, I would stay in Broker. Fuck it, stay in Hove Beach. Everyone like us does. Niko, you ever had two women at once? Four big titties to be playing with? I thought I had died and gone to heaven, man.
Niko Bellic: I can't prove that I have.
Roman Bellic: Cousin, it's been too long... you should have come out earlier. Think of all the girls you've been missing out on!
Niko Bellic: Our country has women too.
Roman Bellic: Yes, but only locals. Here we have white, black, the Puerto Ricans and the Asians, Europeans on vacation, scared Canadians, bored housewives from the Midwest - every possible choice. The city is like a big Uder Milken Ice Cream shop: thirty-six flavors of titty. Hove Beach is our little corner of Eastern Europe.
Niko Bellic: What a charming image. Hove Beach, next to the docks. Immigrants here do not make it very far from the boats they come in on.
Roman Bellic: No, everyone seems happy where they are. It reminds them of the Black Sea or something - people leave home to hang around the people they ran away from, [translated] very odd. Is just temporary for us though. Our sights are set for the top. Mansions in Berchem, penthouse in Algonquin... a model on each arm - me and my cousin Niko, rulers of the world!
(Niko Bellic drives by Roman Bellic's taxi depot)
Roman Bellic: We are passing the cab office, Niko. This is the business that will take us to the top of the pile.
(Niko Bellic drives Roman Bellic to his apartment)
Niko Bellic: This is the mansion?
Roman Bellic: Just a temporary place. The mansion is coming, cousin. That's the dream... follow me.
(Niko Bellic and Roman Bellic enter the apartment)
Roman Bellic: Come in, come in! Make yourself at home... what's mine is yours!
(Roman Bellic stamps on a cockroach)
Roman Bellic: Got him! Little bastard. If he paid some rent I wouldn't care.
(Roman Bellic whips the cockroach of his shoe)
Roman Bellic: Oh... shit... oh, that's not nice. Ah, cousin, it's so good to see you! Yeah! Hmm...
(Roman Bellic lies down on the bed)
Roman Bellic: Shit... well, I needed to change anyway... So!
Niko Bellic: So...
Roman Bellic: So...
Niko Bellic: So, you full of crap, or what?
Roman Bellic: What?
Niko Bellic: Where's luxury condo? Where's sports car? Where's Barbara with big titties and Stephanie who sucks like a vacuum?
'Roman Bellic: What you talking about?
Niko Bellic: In your letters to my mother, in your letters to me... all I hear about is Mr. Big, Mr. Roman, living the American dream. Sports cars, condos, women, money, the beach... opportunity! I come here, and the only thing big about your life is the cockroaches.
Roman Bellic: That's right. I got the best cockroaches, I got the best dirt!
Niko Bellic: Screw you, you idiot!
Roman Bellic: Okay, I'm an idiot, but you must admit I have the best line in bullshit you ever heard.
Niko Bellic: Yeah, this I know. Asshole.
Roman Bellic: But here, all I needed was one good guy. One good guy, I could do well. Not take over the world, but do okay. Now, maybe I have this. But what about you? What about you, cousin?
Niko Bellic: What? What about me?
Roman Bellic: Well... why you leave home after all this time? First, I hear you're running around with the wrong kind, then I hear you joined the merchant navy, now you're here. You never tell me anything.
Niko Bellic: Huh. No.
Roman Bellic: What do you mean no?
Niko Bellic: No, I never tell you anything. Another time.
Roman Bellic: Oooh, mystery man... strange and exotic sailor! What happened? Did your captain make you pregnant?
Niko Bellic: Screw you! No, no, it's nothing like that. The ships were fine. It was before that, two things. You remember, during the war... we did some bad things and bad things happened to us. War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other. I was very young, and very angry. Maybe that is no excuse... Roman? Roman! Are you sleeping, you fat fuck? Come on!
Roman Bellic: Huh! No! No way! What's the time? Shit... I've got to get the cab back. It's on a shift.
(Roman Bellic drinks his coffee but spits it back out)
Roman Bellic: Oh, Jesus! Tastes like a rat shat in it...
Niko Bellic: Roman...
Roman Bellic: Niko, I've got to run, come meet me at the cab office.
Niko Bellic: Jesus... what?
Roman Bellic: It's easy. Out the door, turn left, then the first left at the diner...
Niko Bellic: What are you talking about? I don't...
Roman Bellic: Go down one block and turn right on Iroquois...
Niko Bellic: I'm new here...
Roman Bellic: then walk all the way down and we're right there on the left of the corner of Cisco Street.
Niko Bellic: What are you talking about, man?
Roman Bellic: It's really flash. We got lots of titties and some incredible motors... Niko. Give me a hug. Good to have you here cousin... I've got something for you.
(Roman Bellic's phone rings)
Roman Bellic: Oh, damn... damn, damn, damn!
(Roman Bellic answers his phone)
Roman Bellic: Yes, Vlad, sorry, forgive me, okay, no... no. Please don't cut my cock off, eh? Oh, okay, bye... yes, no, uh, okay.
