We've got some serious stacks now.

And I mean it's love, baby.

- Yeah, we did all right.

- All right, my ass.

Our biggest heist yet,

and you, you don't seem too jazzed.

No, I'm good.

I'm good.

Listen, Dad called last night.

He wants us to come see him.

No. Hell, no, Jake.

I've been to see Dad in jail.

I've been to juvie.

I'm not going back. Not for you, not for Dad,

- not for anybody. Ever.

- Okay, okay.

He's got less than five.

So, when he gets out,

maybe we build him a house.

- Cool?

- Cool.

Gordon says you find anything marked,

burn it.

Sounds tight.

You just gonna leave your kid bro up there

with all that paper?

If he runs out with it, shoot him.

I will, too.

Remember the song?


I don't know what to tell you.

We're so... We're so busy. Look at this.

And if we get that empty space next door,

think about how amazing it's gonna be.

- What's this?

- Open it.

Oh, my God.

It's beautiful.

I think you're beautiful, too.

If you'll have me,

I wanna spend the rest of my life with you.

Cocky assholes.

Tapes are ready.

All right, let's see what we got.

There's 20 elevators for the lobby.

Twelve for the lower floors,

eight for the uppers.

You can cross over at 22.

So, over the course of the day,

how many people on and off?

- Ten thousand, give or take.

- Shit.

Well, let's see who got off

on the construction floor.

It couldn't have been more

than a handful of people.

Well, it doesn't work that way.

These tapes are time-coded, not floor-coded.

All these people getting on and off

and we have no idea

what floor we're watching?

Yeah. I mean, that's how it works.

Come on.

This is some system you got here, Chief.

Most of the buildings in the city

are set up this way.

- Whoever set it up is an idiot.
