...and blow up the whole street.

I've planted it everywhere, you know.

Don't you think I know

how you plan to get out?

Switch on a recorder,

I'm talking to a machine...

...while you crawl out

through the third-floor vent.

Not a bad plan, except I couldn't fit

with all this money.

Besides, I've booby-trapped the vents

with heavy explosives.

Come on down! Get out of there!

God, I hate this town.

Let's see if we can make

a deal here, Chip. Skip.

- I'd like to get those people out of there.

- Fine.

I want a city bus with a full tank of gas.

I want a Harley-Davidson XL 1 ooo.

I want a monster truck.

- A what?

- And I want two Jet Ranger helicopters...

...here on the street.

I'll get you the choppers,

I'll get you the bus, the Harley...

...and the monster truck just as soon

as you give me the damn hostages.

Oh, yeah. I'm sure

no harm will come to me...

...once I'm inside the bank

all by myself.

- At least give me the women.

- Get your own women.

One hostage per demand.

One?! Listen, I've had just about enough

of your comedy, clown.

- We're coming in through the plate glass.

- All right.

I gotta hang up now because I gotta go

kill everybody, okay?

Don't bust my chops, wise guy.

It's not that easy.

It takes time to find two pilots who

are willing to fly out an armed felon.

I don't need a pilot.

Now, you got 3o minutes to meet my first

demand. What's your number out there?

or you're dead along with everyone else.

All right. Do what he says:

The chopper, the bus, everything.

Set them up out here

as soon as they arrive.

- Is it a diversion, chief, or is he crazy?

- He's not crazy.

He'll come out of that bank with

a few hostages also dressed as clowns.

He'll make a run for a chopper

assuming we're afraid to shoot a hostage.
