"That you were...with me."
Fraser: "That's right, yeah."
Lucas: "...when we were...before it all happened and...tell them...no...don't worry about that w***er."
Fraser: "...he might tell them, he's...about the car."
Lucas: "...they won't find...can't find it.
"One of the problems...and if we don't move it...no...me.
"I'm going to go round there and see Hecky and I'll make sure that he...about the car and the plastic.
"...he's not going to...out of it...so, there isn't going to be a problem with Hecky.
"If we...that erm, that box, if we take it...and put it with the other stuff then.
"...but if you...the ring, there's no way they'll forget about."
Fraser: "Just tell them I couldn't have done it, and that."
Lucas: "...that way they'll think it couldn't have been you...problem...trust me, yeah...and I'll say that on the Monday you...the Monday...I'll say that you...and then you...and that you were there then and then after that we...up...say you phoned her then and she...fine."

"They'll be f***ing finished, no problem, you won't have to...no more..."
Fraser: "Yeah, yeah, I see, yeah."
Lucas: "...but if I tell them...so you win...the only bit that's going to be difficult is Hecky blamed Pedro for...and then...the car and...
"So they won't...but that way they don't need to know about the car it's dead simple then."
Fraser: "Do you...?"
Lucas: "But, see, if we say you were there it's...then...and the police will have to...think...and...so, no problem then see...they'll (police) have to face it.
"They think you were, but we'll say you were over that way see and after Pedro says that you were...does that make sense?"

Lucas: "I'll tell them that."
Fraser: "Listen, erm, when I...with them I'll say you've been a victim.
"I put it all together just in the one box, it's got to be there, it's got to be there, I mean when I took it, erm..."
Lucas: "Oh yeah...I remember that...Hecky was there, yes...for me now."
Fraser: "...just say to them...he wasn't....
"You still got the keys haven't you?"
Lucas: "Oh yeah, I wouldn't leave (or left) 'em there."
