Simon’s horrified when Jacob reveals how he rips off Harvey, the big boss, by stealing a few drugs and selling them separately. Bunging Simon a few quid to keep schtum, Jacob heads out. Harvey approaches Simon and reveals he knows Jacob’s ripping him off and wonders if he knew anything about it. Simon’s terrified.
