SIMON:
Granted, the craftsmanship's...

not on a par with the Italians...

but for Eastern Europe, it's not bad.

He assures me it's 14th Century...

but these materials, maybe early 15th.

The guy wanted 10,000 for it...

till he found out who was buying.

Then he said Mr. Van Helsing's always been his best customer.

Don't worry. You paid five.

VAN HELSING:
Did you translate the markings?

It's a Slav dialect. "All fear he who walks...

"beneath the crown of eternal night."

No, no, no. It's not crown.

It's halo.

"Beneath the halo of eternal night."

SIMON:
Oh, well.

You see why the design never survived.

And look how heavy it is compared...

to what they were using in England at the time.

Well, the English made them for firing arrow shafts of wood.

This was made for firing metal-- silver.

[Chuckles]

It sounds like something your grandfather...

would've used to hunt the old...

VAN HELSING:
Simon!

You know how I dislike this kind of talk.

Sorry.

VAN HELSING:
How my poor grandfather...

could have inspired a character out of Bram Stoker's book...

I'll never know.

In truth, he was simply a country doctor...

VAN HELSING:
who built up an antique business.

Nothing more.

SIMON:
So, what should we say in terms of resale value?

I am not interested in the resale.

VAN HELSING:
I want it for my collection.

Another one.

We turn a profit, do we not?

I will keep what I wish.

[Knock on door]

[Door opens]

Mr. Van Helsing, last of the manifests.

SOLINA:
Will you be needing anything?

No, no, no. You go.

OK. Good night, then.

Good night, Simon.

[Door closes]

Picture this. We walk to Waterloo Station.

We board the next train, and three hours later...

we're in Paris for the weekend.

[Sighs]

Does English charm work on English women?

Why not, Solina? One reason.

I don't date men that I work with.

Where was that rule a month ago?

It's new.

Good evening.

I heard you had some sort of security problem.

No, sir.

You do now.

[Crackles]

Aah!

TRICK:
Nice shot.

Move, move, move.

Move and think.

This--is this it?

MARCUS:
Garage sale. Leave it.

Hello?

[Solina gasps]

[Gasps] Ohh.

[Panting]

Hello, precious.

Marcus, you idiot.

Question for you.

Are we supposed to make profit off of this?

Shh!

[Sighs]

What have they found?

Furniture, candlesticks...

some old piece-of-shit pottery.

I gotta tell you, babe.

This is one morbid old bastard you work for.

What about artwork or diamonds or gold?

F*cking crucifixes and coffee cups.

You don't build this kind of security...

without a gold mine to hide.

Listen to me.

You and I are going to find it.

Trust me.

[Screeches]

[Footsteps]

MAN:
Jesus Christ.

All the tunnels line up.

The main vault should be behind this door.

NIGHTSHADE:
Hey, Marcus. What's with all the voodoo?

EDDIE:
You really sure we want to do do this?

If it's worth locking, it's worth taking.

Breach it.

[Grunts]

What...the hell is that?

TRICK:
She said money.

She said gold!
