The Thomas Crown Affair

Synopsis: Self-made billionaire Thomas Crown is bored of being able to buy everything he desires. Being irresistible to women, he also does not feel any challenge in that area. But there are a few things even he can't get, therefore Thomas Crown has a seldom hobby: He steals priceless masterpieces of Art. After the theft of a famous painting from Claude Monet, the only person suspecting Thomas Crown is Catherine Banning. Her job is to get the picture back, no matter how she accomplishes her mission. Unfortunately, Catherine gets involved too deeply with Thomas to keep a professional distance to the case. Fortunately, Thomas seems to fall for her, too.

And the government guy we paid off

to make the state deal is back.

No, this is the second time they lied.

Screw 'em.

- Daniel, you had turkey.

- Mr. Schmidt called from UBS.

- Says there's an opening for the board.

- Douglaston conference call, 10 minutes.

Young lady...

do not touch.

I'll let you go this time.

On your way.

Jimmy, would you take a look

in the compressor room?

There's something wonky

with the A.C.

- Can't we pass it on to Engineering?

- The book says we check it first.

All right.

It would be one of

the hottest days of the year.

Can you believe

it's nearly October?

- Why don't you bring the kids?

- Are you kidding?

You know how she is. She'd probably run

to court saying I was endangering them.

You're not kiddin'?

You wouldn't believe the shit

the woman deals out.

The whole air-conditioning plant's

crapped out.

Why didn't they call Maintenance?

- See you in the morning.

- Found your briefcase, I see.

- Evidently.

- Good night, sir.

That's good. Here you go.


They want to talk to you upstairs.

Me, or the regular proctor? Because

McKinley'll be back in a couple seconds.

I think you should

talk to them.

Call them if you like.

Administration. Hello?

This is Jeff in wing eight.

I was just told

you wanted to speak to me.

I'll be right up.

I'll just go up.

Sorry. This exhibit is closing.

I'll have to ask you to leave.

This exhibit is now closed.

Please use the nearest exit.

This exhibit is now closed.

We are closed for the evening.

Please exit through the rear.

- Thank you. Right this way.

- Good night.

Thank you very much.

I'm sorry, sir. This exhibit is closed.

What have we got here?

Hmm. It's only a quarter to 5:00.

We are closed. For cleaning.

- Hey, Bobby, I've been evicted.
