It is the biggest cash robbery

in U.S. history...

$8 million taken

from an armored-car company

office in New York City.

There may have been close

to $30 million here yesterday,

all in cash,

mostly 50s and hundreds.

A task force of FBI agents

and New York City detectives

are trying to solve

the biggest cash robbery

in U.S. history.

FBI and New York City

police investigators

swarmed over the roof

of a Bronx armored-truck company

after thieves cut a hole in the roof

and made off with the largest

cash theft in U.S. history.

Police also said that a television

camera pointed at the vault

had been moved,

leading to speculation

that the burglars

had inside help.

At this point not one penny

has been recovered.

But FBI officials say they're

working on a number of good leads

and are optimistic

about finding the money.

If I knew, I would be out there

with a shovel looking for it.

We really don't know

right at the moment.

Eddie, Eddie, Eddie, Eddie.

Two questions for you, Eddie:

Where's Chris?

And where's the money?

I quit.

F*cking douchebags.

- Naw, you're fired.

- What?

- You're fired.

- No, bro, I quit.

You can't quit. You quit every week

from somewhere different.

- You're fired.

- Yeah, that's right.

- Yeah, I f*cking quit, all right?

- Oh, shut up.

- You're fired.

- What? What's that?

Yo, you want me to pick up trash?

What f*cking color do I look like?

- You are the trash, you little f*ck.

- Motherf*cker.

Yo yo yo Yo Y-

What, you want some?

- Get going, get outta here.

- How about that, you fat f*ck?

- Come on.

- Get outta here, get going.

- Come on, let's go.

- And you're fired!

- You're fired!

- I quit, motherf*cker.

No no no, you're fired!

Yo, what the f*ck?

- That was your boss?

- Yeah.

Yeah, he wants me

to clean up garbage.

I'm like, "Yo, what color

do I look like to you again, asshole?"

I hate Italians, bro.

Nothing's worse than working

for Italians, let me tell you.

Only thing worse than working

for Italians is working for the Greeks,

and I have to go back and work

at that stupid diner again.

Bullshit. The guy's

a straight-up douche, bro.

He's telling me he thinks

I'm stealing and stuff.

You said you were.

I was, but he's still a dick.

How about that?

Only thing worse is the Greeks.

Hey, what's up, ladies?

Yo, any of you girls

wanna do me right now, I'm down.

Eleni must be real stupid

marrying you, idiot!

- Suck it!

- Douchebag!

There's a rainbow

over my shoulder

When you came,

my cup runneth over

You gave me your heavenly love

And if one night

you hear crying from above

'Cause heaven

Must be missing an angel

Missing one angel child

Because you're here

with me right now

Your love is heavenly

Bab)!

Heavenly to me, baby

Oooh, heaven

- Oooh, heaven...

- Enough with the chickens, Karen.

You gotta stop with the chickens.

She's crazy about the chickens.

- Eh, f*cking bit my lip.

- Hey, give me a hand with this.

Son of a bitch.

Bit my lip.

Hey, are you really

gonna marry Eleni?

- You sound like my mother.

- You're not gonna marry nobody.

Not for nothing, bro, but if they make

a statue of me, I want big balls.

- Know what I'm saying?

- Hey, Ma!

- We come bearing gifts.

- What's this?

I got you a statue...

the statue you wanted.

- Nice.

- Hey.

Do I get a kiss?

Thank you.

- Where did you get this?

- You could put a plant in it.

- What, you don't like it?

- It's nice, it's nice.

- Put it right there.

- Put it over here?

- Yeah, right there against the wall.

- Okay.

- Nice.

- I'm just saying if you don't like it,
