The Hellcats (1967) (part 6 of 6)

In his office, Mr. Adrian says it’s time to wrap things up (thank god!). He hands a thug his apartment key and tells him, “Dissolve our, uh, partnership.” The other thug asks about Monte and Sheila, and he’s told, “There’s plenty of room in the harbor.” Finally, Adrian tells them to have Good Boy watch the Hellcats, which he calls “Sheila’s bunch.” So is she really the leader, or something?

Mr. Adrian moves on to Linda, saying, “How’d you like to go to Tahiti?” while shaking her head around. It’s obvious Slatzer intended this as his big scene; too bad his delivery kills the entire monologue.

At the police station, Moongoose has signed a “full statement” because it’s “just time to pay back the takers.” Boy, that sure was an interesting subplot. Also, the music from the last scene weirdly goes through this one too, and keeps going into the next one.
