I'm afraid you're in a red zone.

There's your bank parking.

Oh, I was just letting my husband out.

I just have to cash a cheque, officer.

I appreciate if you let her

sit her for a few minutes..

See, I got this busted ankle.

Listen, why don't you let me park the car,

and then you endorse the cheque

and I'll go in and cash it.

I'll go in and cash my own cheque.

It's my cheque, isn't it?

Now I'm going to endorse it

and cash it myself.

I think he's afraid I'm going

to abscond with the money.

Don't have to be waited on hand or foot

like I was some damn old crock.

Nobody said you're an old crock!

Well, you implied it.

Ok. It's ok. You can park here.

But please make it

as quick as you can.

Much obliged officer.

Marry a hippie and she'll

start endorsing your cheques.

"Colorado, George Adam, 1742".


Plates on that Connie..

So, run a check on it.

San Miguel 4, requesting a make on

Have a nice day, Rick.

Thank you, Miss Ambar.

Here, I'll use my own pen. I write

a lil' better with it...

- Here you are.

- Thank you.

Do you have an account here Mr. Pennis?

No but that's a good cheque.

I'm sure it is Mr. Pennis but I'll have

to get an ok from the bank manager.

- Sure.

- Excuse me.

Ms. Vesta.

- What?

- Can we get an ok from Mr. Young on this?

Oh, Yes.

Hello Jessie, San Miguel 4 here.

Have you got anything on

those Colorado plates here?

Not yet. We're still checking.

I'll get right back to you.

- Mr. Pennis?

- Yes, Sir.

I'm sorry Sir, but it's an out-of-state bank.

Oh but that's a bank cashier's cheque, Sir.

What could possibly be wrong with that?

I'm sure it's fine. I'll just have

my secretary check on it. Ms. Vesta.

Yes, Mr. Young.

Would you mind getting on

the phone verifying that...

That's a perfectly good cheque..

Against the wall!

Nobody move!

Keep your hands up!

Ok, open that vault and

nobody'll get hurt..

You wanna die for somebody else's money?

No, but I..

Move it, move it!

San Miguel 4?

This is Pearl. Rudy?

San Miguel 4. Go ahead. Jessie.

Looks like we've got something.

"Colorado, George Adam, 1742"

is a hot plate. It goes with a green Camaro

stolen in Denver on July 7th.

Well, it's on a '72 Continental now.

The Sheriff's on his way.

Is that all?

Where's the money Mister?

That's all.

It's a very small town, Sir.

You're a good dancer?

I don't understand, Sir.

You're dancing sideways!

What are you hiding down there?

Oh, nothing.

Pick it up!

- What's in there?

- Bonds. Non-negotiable bonds.

Better be what you sayin'.

Open it up. Fast!

Yes, Sir.

- G'morning Ma'am.

- G'morning.

May I see your driver's license, please?

Oh, certainly.

Stop the car and put down the hood.

Stop the car.

Look at that Charley! We creamed them!

Hot damn! Creamed pig!

Get this on the emergency band.

There's been a bank robbery

over here in Tres Cruces.

Are you alright Sheriff?

Goddamn shambles!

Two officers down.

We need help. All units

and an ambulance.

The suspects were last seen heading south

in a '72 Continental.

Are you sure you're alright Sheriff?
