so I'll set everything up.

-What do you mean?

-Never mind what I mean.

-Hello, Mrs. Fein.

-How are you, boys? You're looking great.

-Thank you.



We're gonna need some guns.

I don't believe this.

Willie, we're gonna need your help.

But I respect your feelings.

If you don't wanna go, you don't have to.

I want you to know

you'll still be our partner.

We'll cut you in on everything.

That is, if it's okay with you, Al.

-Of course it's okay with me.


Yeah, and if you go to jail,

am I still gonna be your partner?

Through thick and thin,

for better or worse...

you'll always be our partner.

Listen, my nephew Pete is a gun nut.

He's got a small collection

he keeps in a cabinet in his basement.


I'm going over there to watch his kids

this afternoon for two hours.

-I'll check it out.


But, Al, make sure

that you don't say nothing to nobody.

-Of course I won't say nothing to nobody.


Don't worry about a thing, Willie.

We're gonna make you feel young again.


It's all set. We got no problems.

Got four pistols.

You want rifles? We got rifles.

Pete's got a couple of rifles, too.

-No rifles.

-All right, we got four pistols.

Now, one of them

is one of those heavy machine German....

One of those heavy

German machine pistols.

I don't think that's too good.

I think we can do without that.

-But the other three are perfect.


Do you think you'll have any problem

getting them out of there?

Joe, piece of cake.

When all this is over,

we'll give your nephew some money.

But everybody remember, we get caught...

we don't tell

where we got the guns, right?

Of course not.

-What are we gonna stick up?

-I was just thinking about that.

Might as well make it a bank, right?

-I guess so. Might as well.
