Hello. How are you this morning?


So, what can l do for you?

Hey, l know you.

You're the guy

that saved that little girl

from that car a couple years ago.

Yeah, you saw that?

l saw the whole thing on ''Dateline.''

That was a really

brave thing you did.

Anybody else would have done

the same thing, l think.

l don't know, you know.

Tell me you're not high.

You f***ing better be.

Security guard's right on time.

Well, girls, no turning back now.

F*** turning back.

- You sure?

Come on, can't you feel

my heart beating?

This is gonna be one hell of a rush,

What are we waiting for?

Let's do this!

Nobody f***ing moves,

That's enough from you.

Tellers, back away

from that counter.

Put your hands

on top of your heads.

Everybody else on the floor now!

What are you doing

standing there?

Open the drawer now.

You think about

doing some dumb sh*t,

l'll put a bullet

in your face, Comprende?

That's right, folks,

this is not a reenactment,

so for your own comfort and joy,

could you please keep

your legs and your arms

within the vehicle!

Otherwise, you may lose them.

Thank you.

Why the f*** are you standing?

On the floor!

- Move, b*tch.

Sh*t was an accident.

Sh*t just went off, man.

Get the f***ing money.

What is this? This is a bank?

No, no, no, no, no.

Get his black ass

Get the f*** back over here!

What did you do?

lf you don't get back over here,

l'm gonna do it again.

- Fill it up!

- Let's go, let's go!

Hey, what did l tell you?

This is what happens

when you people move!

Jesus, this wasn't

supposed to happen!

- We shouldn't even be here!

- Shut the f*** up, b*tch!

- And grow up!

We gotta move. Kill him.

Come on, come on, come on!

Let's go! Cops are coming.

And so would Kayla be,

if she knew you were here.

l brought her these.

Thank you. Those are beautiful.

who to thank

for all these other

beautiful red roses.

Her father

passed away last year.

l'm sorry, l don't know

why l mentioned that.

Oh, no, that's all right.

l'm just...

They always say they just reacted.
