Can I ask you a question?

- That Atlanta job,

that bank you did in '84...

- J.T.? Is that what it is?

- I'm in a hurry if you don't mind.

- Where did you hide all that dirt?

Hey, wait up, now.

One more question now.

That '85 job you did,

that First National...

- where you filled all

them alarms with foam?

- I've got a bus to catch.

- I know, I know... A trade secret.

- I'm really sorry, okay?

- Hey! Hey! Shit!

- Hey, listen.

I can give you a ride.

My car's right here.

- Is it true you never carry?

- Excuse me?

- A rod?

A heater? The difference.

A piece.

- You know, a gun?

- I didn't need a gun.

I robbed banks when

nobody was in them.

Nobody was in them.

That's great.

"I robbed banks when

nobody was in them."

Geez. Hey, you know,

I'm a first-class driver, Miss McCoy.

You get ready for your next job,

will you keep me in mind? Miss McCoy?

- Stop the car.

- Oh, I'm talkin' too much, aren't I?

Listen, you don't have

to get out. I'll shut up.

This is where I'm going.

Thanks for the ride.

Hey, you want to get

together sometime, have dinner?

- You like hot stuff... Uh, spicy food?

- I'll call you. Thanks.


Hey, you don't have

my number!

Just, uh, one question

on your form.

Previous occupation?

You left it blank.

Uh, yes, ma'am. I just really

didn't know what to put.


Armed services?

Um, Athens Correctional

Facility for Women.

I was a convict.

I'm sorry, Miss McCoy.

The company has a policy about this.

Okay. Thank you.

- I'm sorry.

- No, that's okay. Thank you.

Uh, the position involves

handling cash, honey.

We just don't feel like it'd be

appropriate in the circumstances.

Um, the thing is...

Well, I really don't know

that I can...

Ma'am, I really

need this job.


why don't I just put
