He doesn't seem happy.

Hello, Hank.

You're supposed to be in Moscow.

I took a detour...

Through your defense lab.

Tell me that isn't what I think it is.

That depends if you think it's

a poor attempt to replicate my work.

Even for this group, that takes nerve.

You were instructed to go to Russia.

May I remind you, Dr. Pym,

that you're a soldier...

I'm a scientist.

Then act like one.

The Pym Particle is the most

revolutionary science ever developed.

Help us put it to good use.

I let you turn me into your errand boy,

and now you try to steal my research?

If only you'd protected Janet

with such ferocity, Dr. Pym.


Easy, Hank.

You mention my wife again

and I'll show you ferocity.

Don't look at me. You said it.

I formally tender my resignation.

We don't accept it. Formally.


we need you.

The Pym Particle is a miracle. Please.

Don't let your past determine the future.

As long as I am alive,

nobody will ever get that formula.

We shouldn't let him leave the building.

You've already lied to him.

Now you want to go to war with him?


Our scientists haven't come close

to replicating his work.

He just kicked your ass, full-size.

You really want to find out what it's like

when you can't see him coming?

I've known Hank Pym for a long time.

He's no security risk.

Unless we make him one.

You like that?

You like that?

Come get you some now.

You didn't even move.


What if I come in on the left side, right?

Just down here.

You see this right here?

I'm gonna miss you, Scott.

I'm gonna miss you, too, Peachy.

Man, you guys got

the weirdest goodbye rituals.

All right, break it up.

Break it up! Break it up!


What's up, man!

Damn! Hey.

Ha-ha! Hey, man.

Hey, what's up with your eye?

Oh. Well, what do you think? Peachy.

It's a going-away present.

Oh, yeah.

I still got my scar from a year ago.

- Oh, yeah.

- Yeah.

You know what? I'm still the only one

who knocked him out.

Well, I definitely didn't.

Thanks for picking me up, brother.

Bro, you think I'm gonna miss

my celly getting out?

Hey, how's your girl, man?

Oh, she left me.

- Oh.

- Yeah, my ma died, too.

And my dad got deported.

But I got the van!

- It's nice.

- Yeah, right?

Thanks for the hook-up, too.

I needed a place to stay.

You wait till you see this couch.

You're gonna be really happy.

You're gonna be on your feet

in no time. Watch.

- I hope so.

- Yeah.

And I gotta introduce you to some

people. Some really skilled people.

- Not interested.

- Yeah, right.

No, I'm serious, man. I'm not going back.

I got a daughter to take care of.

You know that jobs don't come easy

for ex-cons, right?

Look, man, I got a master's

in electrical engineering, all right?

I'm gonna be fine.

Welcome to Baskin-Robbins.

Would you like to try our

Mango Fruit Blast?

Uh, no, thanks.

Um, I will have...

I'll have a burger, please.

Oh, we don't... We don't make that.

Pretzel. Hot pretzel. Like, mustard...

Do you have mustard dip?

It's ice cream.


I'll just do, like,

whatever's hot and fresh.


Can I see you in the back, chief? Pronto.

Sure thing, Dale.

Darby, could you just, uh,

take care of this idiot? Thanks.

- Hey, Dale.

- Come on in.

Pull up some chair.

Three years at San Quentin, huh?

You found out.

Baskin-Robbins always finds out.

Look, I'm sorry, all right? But I...

No one would hire me.

Breaking and entering. Grand larceny.

Look, I'm sorry.

I don't do it anymore. I just...


I couldn't be happier about it.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Thank you. Thank you.

You really stuck it

to those billionaire SOBs.

The more I read about

what you did and stuff...

I'm like, "Wow, I know this guy?

"I'm in charge of this guy?"

Well, I'm very happy in this job,

and I really just appreciate

the opportunity to...

Well, you're fired, of course.

I can't really keep you on.

Wait, what? Fired?


Dale, look, it wasn't a violent crime.

I mean, I'm a good worker.

No, it wasn't a violent crime.

It was a cool crime.

I'll tell you what, though.

This will be totally off the books,

off the records,

but if you want to grab one of those

Mango Fruit Blasts

on your way out the door,

I'll just pretend I didn't see it.

Hey, Scotty. What's up?

I thought you were

supposed to be at work.

I was. I got fired.

Damn. They find out who you are?



always finds out, bro.

Baskin-Robbins don't play.

- You want some waffles?

- Yeah, I'll take a waffle.

Oh. That's Kurt.

He was Folsom for five years.

He's a wizard on that laptop.

- Nice meet you.

- Yeah. Nice to meet you, too.

Who are you?


Nice work on the Vista job.

Vista job, yes.

No, no. I have heard of this robbery.

Well, technically, I didn't rob them.

Robbery involves threat.

I hate violence. I burgled them.

I'm a cat burglar.

You mean you're a p*ssy.


They were overcharging

the customers, right?

And it added up to millions.

He blows the whistle and he gets fired.

And what does he do?

He hacks into the security system

and transfers millions

back to the people that they stole it from.

Posts all the bank records online.

And he drove the dude's Bentley

into his swimming pool.

What are you doing?


Why are you telling my life story

to these guys?

What do you want?


My cousin talked to this guy

Edgar Howard Wright (born 18 April 1974) is an English director, screenwriter and producer. He began making independent short films before making his first feature film A Fistful of Fingers (1995). Wright created and directed the comedy series Asylum in 1996, written with David Walliams. After directing several other television shows, Wright directed the sitcom Spaced (1999–2001), which aired for two series and starred frequent collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In 2004, Wright directed the first film in the Three Flavours Cornetto, the horror comedy Shaun of the Dead, starring Pegg and Frost. The film was co-written with Pegg—as were the next two entries in the trilogy, Hot Fuzz (2007) and The World's End (2013), which Wright directed and also starred the pair. In 2010, Wright co-wrote, produced, and directed the comedy action film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Along with Joe Cornish and Steven Moffat, he co-wrote Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin (2011).
