Why are you a thief, Jack?

Diplomatic corps wouldn't take me.

Besides, I like to think that I'm doing

my part...

for international relations.

You've been here six months, Tuliver.

All you want to do is joke and play.

Americans, never a straight answer.

Military taught me three things:

how to kill, how to steal...

and never surrender information.

I wasn't much on the killing part.

But I'm willing to try again.

If you know what I mean.

For my country, of course.

You can do so much with your life.

I am doing something.

- We are doing something.

- Well, we can do some more.


Come back here, Suza.

Get dressed.

Don't be late for work.

I hate work.

She was a mature woman.

Mature women run at Spanky.

Did you wear

your"Don't f*** me, I'm a queer" T-shirt?

She was crazy begging for it.

Begging me to give it to her, Spanky-style.

The last woman to beg you to do anything

was your mama...

and that was to clean up your room.

I was sporting it fresh, mate.

Pimp daddy.

Eastern Bloc loves Western cock.

- Know what I mean?

- Oh, you know what I mean?

- You sure that thing's gonna work?

- T!

- And the detonators?

- Everything's cool.

Just like the plan, T-man.

Three trucks.

Three locations.


Kill the engine.

Let's move.

Do it. Go!

We've been hit.

One prize depot.

Sectors 3 and 5...


...Code 14 alert.


- Three signals.

- Three trucks.

Twenty casinos unloading

all at the same time.

Gentlemen, we are about to be

$20 million richer.

Get out of the truck! Get your ass out.

Down on the ground!

Get on the ground!

Get your ass out of there! Lay down!

Move it!

I sure hope you have big pockets.

Call the police.

'Cause that's $3 million apiece.

- On the ground, stay down!

- Don't shoot.

- Open the back!

- I can't .

Open the back or I'll open your head!

- I can't . It's on timer.

- Manual open it.

No, it's on timer.

It only opens at the location or the depot.

You blew the electrics. I can't open it.

Seven seconds.

Where did you find those timers? Pull out.

Team One, out.

- Out! Back to the van!

- Pull out!

Team Two, talk to me. Pull out.

- Move your ass.

- Get in!

Move your ass, Charlie.

Yes, who is this? Yes, Capt. Szabo.

Yes, we do. Well, they must have our routes.

I'm pulling all the trucks back

to the main depot.

Can we get police escorts?

- How many trucks?

- Fourteen.

Pull them all back on high alert.

You catch these bastards, Captain.

All trucks, Code 86.

Return immediately to the depot.

Problem. We're turning around,

back to the depot.

- Why?

- We're all being pulled back.

Police escort is on its way.

Hello, Cristina.

Okay, gentlemen, we have a situation.

Please take that to the vault

and lock up your shotguns. Thank you.

We don't work for Vanderbrink.

No overtime for us.

And our case is for

Mr. Bostnescu in Bucharest.

- Vanderbrink policy-

- Change of policy, Barney.

Get us a driver.

And get us and this case to our location.

Right now.

- Touchy.

- Touchy a**holes.

- Sorry, Mr. Vanderbrink.

- No, that's fine.

What's going on?

You better go to the briefing room, Cristina.

No phones.


Okay, everyone in the truck.

Here we go again.

One more time!

Come on, move it out, people. Move it out.

How's the foot, Bull?

Were you raised by hamsters or something?

Crazy hamsters, Bull.

We got eight minutes

till the final crew arrives.

And most likely

the Bucharest Police Department...

and about 3,000 NATO troops

stationed at various bases around this city.

So, be quick, be quiet, be clean.

Oh, yeah, another thing.
