Horrible Bosses 2

After Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to launch their own business, Bert and his son, Rex, meet them at a golf course. Bert orders 100,000 Shower Buddies from them, only to cancel the order, leaving them with a half-million-dollar debt. Later on, after Rex's kidnapping was staged, Bert called the police after they told him not to, proving that money is his main priority. In a bottom floor of a hotel parking garage, Nick, Kurt and Dale wearing homemade ghost masks ordered him to give up the money and his jacket and suit so that Kurt can impersonate Bert.

While giving up the $5 million in cash inside a vinyl bag, Bert refused to give up his jacket and suit. Nick, Kurt and Dale didn't know what to do and instead kept demanding him to do so threatening they would shoot him (as Nick was carrying an unloaded Smith and Wesson 60). Bert scoffs they would shoot him and insults "Big mouth! Nothing behind it!" before getting shot in the chest. Nick, Kurt and Dale panic over this and Kurt and Dale immediately blame Nick for this, thinking he has just killed the man. But Rex cackles in laughter behind them while holding a Colt Python, revealing that he was the one who shot Burt in the chest. Rex complains he got fed up with his dad's shallowness for having called the police instead of just simply sending in the money, then shoots Bert again in the head.

After Rex steals their Prius, Nick, Kurt and Dale panic over what to do now that Bert is dead and the police is coming to the parking garage. Kurt immediately suggests hiding Bert's dead body and just run off with the 5 million dollars, but that plan is abandoned in favor of Jones showing up in his own car offering to help them race Rex to the warehouse. The police found Bert's dead body and presumably, it was buried in a cemetery.
