Synopsis: Tripp (Patrick Dempsey) walks into a bank to get some change and ends up as a hostage to two bank robber-teams, robbing the bank he is at.

But not everything is at it seems, and there are many twists and turns in this comedy.

Make it quick, honey. We're closing.

Well, this is unacceptable.

Because I booked it yesterday.

Yes, a one-hour sunset bliss massage

with Tanya.

No, it has to be Tanya.

I need to know that this bank is secure.

Just trust me. I've upgraded dozens of banks.

-it'll be fine.

-I don't need fine. I need guarantees.

Gordon, you've got them.

It's a security upgrade,

not the end of the world.

I swear, Kaitlin, if he keeps me late again

and I miss Cougar Town,

I am gonna burn this place to the ground.

Oh, I hear you, hon. We've all got plans.

Mr Sullivan, it's always a pleasure to see you.

Look, I scheduled

this massage a month ago.

No, I need Tanya.

Her hands are like little jackhammers

Well, who can I get?

Jonathan? Well, does he have strong hands?


Ooh! Come to mama.

Mmm. Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, oh, oh.

Son of a b*tch.

-How may I help you today, sir?

-Change for a hundred.

Absolutely. How would you like it broken?

Seven nickels, 31 quarters and 919 dimes.


Oh, you're right, that's too many dimes.

I'm gonna do 107 nickels,

and seven half-dollar pieces, please.

Is that Chile?


You know what? I'm never gonna use

the half-dollar pieces.

Can I get 101 nickels,

-Is this a joke?

-No. I just have this thing for coins.

I like their weight, I like their size,

I like the way they jingle in my pocket.

-That's kind of weird.

-What is?

The numbers you mentioned, 101, 157, 557.

They're all prime numbers.

No one's ever noticed that before.

I work with numbers all day.

You do that in your head?

Yes. Good trick at math parties.

-I bet.

-What's your name?


-Kaitlin. I am Tripp.

-It's very nice to meet you.

-Oh, hi, we don't actually, um,


-shake hands with customers.

-Oh, right.

Cell phone scramblers live.

When are you getting married?

How do you know I'm getting married?

Oh, my wedding gifts.

That's also quite a rock.

Are you marrying Jay-Z or somebody?

My fianc's well off, yes.

Well off? They're getting married

in Brunei in two days.

My husband won't even take me to the Sizzler.

Oh, he's rich. But is he happy?

We're extremely happy.

How kind of you to ask.

Check Darrien.

Check Weinstein.

All right, we're live. Go weapons hot.


Breach the door. Go on, hit it with the clicker.

Go, go, go!

And one, two, three, four, five, six

and one makes seven.

Is there anything else I can do

for you today, sir?

No, I'm good. Thank you.

Thanks for choosing Credit International.

Have a great day.


-You're beeping.

-What? Oh.

Yes, it reminds me to take my meds.


-Pharmacy around here?

-Two blocks up.

Very nice meeting you, Kaitlin.

Nice to meet you, too, Tripp.

Good luck with your whole thing.

-You're about to be robbed.



(GRUNTS) What are you doing?

This is a robbery!

What the f*** do you think you're doing here?

What's it look like, man?

We robbing the bank.

Yeah, ain't it sort of obvious

with the guns and everything?

No. This is our job. Stand down.

I ain't see your name on the sign out there.

Unless your name is Credit.


And, you know, given all the weird names

parents give their kids these days...

The alarm isn't working.

No cell phone reception either.

-What do we do?

-Proceed as planned.

Stop the security update.

If I don't let the system reboot,

the whole bank will lock down.

We know that. Just do it

or I'll shoot you in the f***ing face.

Now hold on, son. There's no...

-Do it!


You have exactly three seconds

to stand down or you will be fired upon!
