until I caught up with the sons|of bitches that killed her husband.

We make promises like that|all the time in my line of work.

And we like to think|that we mean it.

That time, I really meant it.

Six months later,|another armoured car.

Then, two more banks-- takeover style--|the most dangerous kind.

They, uh, got away|with over two million dollars.

I guess they wanted|to live the good life...

and they wanted to live it|pretty fast...

instead of getting a job|like the rest of us.

Anyway, they disappeared into the|wind one day, but I knew they'd be back.

Hey, did you see that?|A Porsche 91 1 .

- Oh, I love those.|- I hate the Germans.

You're from Romania.|That practically makes you a German.

I'm an American...

and I like Corvettes and Mustangs.

If you're going for horsepower and|good looks, nothing wrong with that.

Corvettes and Mustangs and Mexican|girls. I love that girl over there.

- Morning, sir.|- Hey, Luis.

So, what do you think|of my new wheels?

Wow, that's great, man.|I really love gold.

- Champagne.|- Huh?

It's the colour.|It's called champagne.

- Oh.|-

Hey, keep working hard and one|day you'll be able to afford champagne.

Oh, I sure hope so, sir.

I sure hope so.|Dick.

Ow! Geez!

- You all right?|- It's nothing.

Hey, you can say if it hurts.|It's okay, tough Robo-girl.

- Hey!|- Oh, here we go...

with that whole|''women can handle it'' attitude...

because of childbirth|and years and years of pain.

Yeah, yeah, that's|right. You couldn't

stand the pain of|childbirth, Henry.

Better you than me, sister girl.

I tell you what I could|stand. You need to take

me out with a salsa honey|and teach me how.

- I can salsa dance.|- Don't start that again. You'll embarrass me.

- I've got flavour. I got mad flavour.|- Yeah, I know, okay?
