Hudson Hawk

Synopsis: Thief extraordinaire Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) has just been released from prison and all he wants is a nice cappuccino. However, before he can savor his favorite beverage, the highly eccentric and wealthy Darwin Mayflower (Richard E. Grant) and his equally odd wife, Minerva (Sandra Bernhard), rope Hawk into an ambitious series of heists. Soon Hawk is stealing no less than major works by Leonardo Da Vinci, priceless pieces that the Mayflowers plan to use in an exceedingly nefarious way.

A black hat is dropped onto the counter. A black coat is

then dropped beside it.

SKEETER:

Haven't seen one of these in a

long time.

HAWK:

Like that, Skeeter? Keep it.

SKEETER:

Hey, you got to sign for this!

Don't you want the receipt?

GATES:

I got him, Charlie. So the Hudson Hawk

is finally getting out. Remember all

the reporters that were here when you

came in?... "World's greatest cat

burglar." Now, who gives a f*ck?

(turning serious)

I've got a proposition.

HAWK:

Answer's no, Gates.

GATES:

As your parole officer, I've found

you a job.

HAWK:

No way.

GATES:

It's a terrific job. An auction

house. One night's work and you're

free. No checking in with a shrink,

no community service...

HAWK:

I want to do community service. I

want to teach the handicapped how

to yodel. I ain't stealing no

more, Gates.

GATES:

Ten years later, you're still

impressed with yourself. Same old

coat, same old hat. You're extinct,

Hawk, out of style.

HAWK:

(to trenchcoat)

Coming from you that's a powerful

statement. Look, aren't you

supposed to stop me from committing

crimes. You know, Book-em-Dano,

Give-a-Hoot-Don't-Pollute.

Hawk and Gates come to a final checkpoint. Gates jiggles

in and out of his pocket, a set of keys.

GATES:

You ain't out yet, wise guy. I

can set you up and send you back

any time I want. It's a very fine

line between ex-con and escaped con.

HAWK:

Gates, Gates, Gates. Go f*ck

yourself.

GATES:

This hard-on's got my keys.

Seymour! Be seeing you, Hawk.

Gates moves to the bars and reaches in his pocket. It is

empty.

Hawk flings the keys in a trash can.

HAWK:

Why am I getting the feeling that

getting out of prison is going to

be a big fucking mistake.

Hawk dispenses himself a Pez piece then spits it out in

agony.
