Hudson Hawk script
Hudson Hawk (1991)
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.

no community service...

want to teach the handicapped how

to yodel. I ain't stealing no

more, Gates.


Ten years later, you're still

impressed with yourself. Same old

coat, same old hat. You're extinct,

Hawk, out of style.

Coming from you that's a powerful

statement. Look, aren't you

supposed to stop me from committing

crimes. You know, Book-em-Dano,


Hawk and Gates come to a final checkpoint. Gates jiggles

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


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
