Mitchell (1975) (part 4 of 8)
Later that day at his house, Cummings gets on the phone with some guy named Rudy who, like most sleazy drug dealers tend to do, is reclining out by his pool. They have this gem of an expository conversation, made all the more idiotic because we already know everything they explain.
Cummings: I’ve got pressure.
Rudy refuses to help with the Mistretta situation because “if Gallano’s involved, I don’t want any part of it!” Cummings hangs up and tells Benton that he’s going to turn to Mitchell for help, because “I’m no good to him dead!” Maybe you shouldn’t have had your goon in the Mustang try to kill him, then. Actually, from what I can tell, Mitchell appears to only want to get Deaney, and Cummings’ death would actually just get him out of the way. But who’s keeping track?
