- How'd it go?

- Lousy.

Got a '63 Thunderbird

I would've sold in a day a year ago.

Now they just wanna look at the pictures.

You smell nice.

How was your day?

It was great.

We had a big breakthrough

in the Bulgari case.


We found a boot print.

A really good one.

The left heel was worn way down.

That's a good lead.

I know.

We found a hair.

A hair, wow.

It's at the lab.

So hopefully by noon tomorrow

we'll find out his DNA...

...what kind of conditioner he uses,

if he streaks his hair...

...if he has dandruff, everything.

Isn't that amazing?

That is amazing.

You know, having those

extra men really paid off.

Oh, you're just being modest.

Are you coming to bed, baby?

I'm just gonna have a shower.

Don't let me keep you up.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

- And you are Mr...?

- Diaz. Miguel Diaz.

- And you're here to open a...?

- A SEP retirement account.

Terrific. Oh, it says here

you're already retired.

- I am.

- What was your occupation?

I was a high school basketball coach.

You must have done

very well for yourself.

- What's your name?

- Greg.

Greg. Let me ask you something.

Do you have safe-deposit boxes here?

Yes, they're housed in our vault.

- New vault?

- It's over 100 years old.

Of course, we've made some

state-of-the-art upgrades since then.

You know, I was once in a vault

while it was being robbed.

That must have been quite an experience.



That's too oxblood.

What do y'all do?

My husband and I?

Well, he's retired. Just retired.

It's great. It's...

And I did work at an art gallery.

And, you know, I love art,

obviously, and paint and...

That's too brown. I'm sorry.

Do you mind if l...?

- Hey, it's your paint.

- Okay. Thank you.

May I show you something specific?

Well, I was looking

for something for my wife.

What is it, a special occasion?

It's our second third anniversary.

Excuse me. Hello, Mrs. Diaz,

we were just talking about you.

- How'd it go at the bank?

- It was easy.

I mean great.

No, you mean easy.


You're doing recon work

on our anniversary?

- Tess.

- Let me ask you this:

- Where are you now?

- Casing a jewelry store.

That's an interesting way to ease back

into society, which was your idea.

- Should I stop painting now?

- Listen.

Let's talk about something important.

I can't find a restaurant for tonight.

- Well, we'll stay in.

- Really?

- Great. I'll cook.

- No, I'll cook. You talk.

You want me to talk?

Words and everything? That's what

they make flowers for, you know.

- Oh, no, Danny.

- What is it?


...what's wrong?

There's water in the basement

and the pilot light is out.

Hang up!

Hello, Tess.

Where is he, Tess?

Where is...

...Mr. Diaz?

I want it back, Tess.

I want it all back.

You got it all...

...from the insurance company.

- I want my money back.

The money that your husband

and his 10 friends stole from me.

With interest. A hundred and sixty

million dollars over three years.

That's a lot of vig.

And I want it all back.

He's got two weeks.

You'll never find them.

They're way too smart for you.


You know, as it turns out...

...I'm not the only person in the world

looking for Ocean's 11.

All right.

I'm the groom, and I'm not supposed

to say anything, but... Make a speech.

But I don't care what the rules are,

because I really wanna thank my family.

My mom and dad,

my Uncle Gary and Aunt Grace.

Uncle Ted, Aunt Celeste...

...and their children, Denise and Jessica.

Bishop Tom and his wife, Helen,

my neighbor John...

...and his new girlfriend, Tanya.

And all the guys at Lean Machine Inc.,

Bobo, Mullethead...

...Big Sam.

And everyone else

who's just been great...

...in welcoming Sara

into the family. Thank you.

Excuse me, everybody. I'd just like to...

- Get up.

- Get up.

- Get up.

- Get up. Get up.

- Walk.

- Walk.

I'd like to say a few words

about commitment...

...about honor...

...about responsibility...

...about a very special someone

and admitting to her...

Get up. Pull the chair out.

Admitting to her in front of everybody...

...that her wedding...

...and that very special

honeymoon trip to Epcot Center...

...will have to be postponed.

The photographer. He's just a friend.

You met him at The Mint, remember?

Well, of course I am.

You don't expect me to embarrass myself

by flying commercial?

On a budget? On a budget?

Who was the only person who couldn't

get in on the Chinese cell-phone market?

You, with all your connections.

What was that?

He seemed really nice. And you know

it's hard for guys to be friends with me.

And you do this every time

that I meet someone new.

And you know what?

It's getting really boring.

You think it's a accident no

one know about Fred "Bud" Kelly?

Ain't no accident.

There's one explanation...

...and you ladies know

exactly what it is.

I'm gonna tell you what it is.

Conspiracy, collusion, complicity.

That's all it is.

Let me break it down like a fraction

for you about my man Fred "Bud" Kelly.

Fred "Bud" Kelly made skates

out of whiskey bottles...

...at his uncle's farm in the early 1900s.

That was over there in Nova Scotia.

I'm gonna tell you something else. You

never seen his name on the Stanley Cup.

You know why that is?

Because that son of a b*tch Jim Crow...

...took his name off the history books.

You kind of...

Seems like every time I see you,

you're playing the race card, Frank.

Now, why is that?

You can let go of my feet now.

- This don't bother you?

- Of course it bothers me, mate.

- What the do you want me to do?

- Well, it's up.

You can't hear none of the lyrics.

You can't get with the beat

with all them bleeps in it.

You want a single

on the radio...

...it's what you have to do.

Well, it's , isn't it?

Totally !

right, it's .

What the is that?

Somebody must be in 2.

Oh, !

And you haven't contacted

my father about any of this?

Because, really, I don't think there's

any reason to involve him or my mom.

It's all on you, Linus.

Okay. Good.

- Good. Because I have a whole network...

- Get out of my car.

Thank you.

- Mr. Bloom?

- Yes.

There appears to be

a slight problem with your card.

Oh, well, yes. Here.

I'm afraid not, sir.


Your business manager

said you would understand.

Todd said I would understand?

No, Mr. Benedict.

Mr. Benedict. Mr...

Oh, yes.

An old friend, a practical joker.

Tell Mr. Benedict

he's won this round, yes.

Terry Benedict.

Old Terry.

She's looking at me

from across the room.

And she's crazy about me, I can tell...

...because she's been staring

at me all night. So suddenly...

...I just go up to her, and I grab her.

And I've got her really close to me...

...and her eyes are all fiery.

And my eyes are fiery.

And it's like... It's electric.

And I say to her, "Mom...



Thanks for letting me finish.

What can I say?

You're a funny guy.

Oh, yeah. My friend Rusty.

I'm worried about him.

He owns this hotel in Los Angeles...
