Mr. White responds "if you shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologise". When the check arrives, Mr. White complaints to Mr. Pink when Pink reveals that he doesn't pay tips and he tries to persuade him that waitresses struggles.

The WarehouseEdit

White and Orange arrives the warehouse, with Orange now struggling to walk so White carries him. Mr. White tries to get Orange to the hospital when Joe arrives but he refuses. As he tries another attempt to comfort him, Mr. Pink walks in angrily to see the wounded Orange. As Mr. Pink is reassured of the heist being a police set-up and as he and White goes to the bathroom, White informs Orange that he is going to the bathroom. The two both exchange stories of their escape. As they come back, they find an unconscious Orange. Then, White then reveals that he told Orange his name, upsetting Pink since he believed that it is against the rule of revealing their real names and is afraid that his name will be revealed to the police. They begin arguing about this, in which White punches Pink to the ground and they both viciously yell at each other as they point their guns at each other. As they exchange insults, Mr. Blonde is revealed to be watching them. As Mr. Pink tries to explain what happened, White interrupts and angrily berates Blonde for his savage shooting-spree but Blonde dismisses the commitment. Blonde also reveals that he has kidnapped a police officer named Marvin Nash. The three then beats Marvin into a pulp in order to find out who is the rat. Eddie then arrives to recruit Pink and White into associating with him into getting the diamonds.

Later, White, Pink and Eddie returns to the warehouse to find a dead Blonde, a conscious Orange, and a more-tortured Nash. When White asks Orange what happened and as Orange claims, Eddie shoots and kills Nash. As Eddie rebuffs Orange's claims, Joe arrives and reveals that Orange is an informant of the LAPD. White tries to convince Joe that he is false but Joe refuses to accept this and reveals that he doesn't have proof of Orange as an informant. Soon, Joe draws his gun on Orange and White points his gun at him, with Eddie interfering, leading to a Mexican standoff. Soon, Joe opens fire on Orange, forcing White into killing Joe and Eddie, who shoots White in the stomach. Pink then leaves with the diamonds. The wounded White goes to Orange, who is further wounded, trying to comfort him. Orange reveals that he is a cop and White begins to cry. White then points his gun onto Orange's head and police arrives, ordering White to drop his gun but he refuses and shoots Orange, causing the police to shoot White dead.
