I said, no calls.

- Oh, now...is that Sir Edward?

Who is this?

Let's just say I'm somebody

you really don't want to ignore.

I beg your pardon?!

- You caused a lot of misery in your time, haven't you?

Mind you, so have I. The only difference is that I knew the names of the people I was hurting.

And as far as I was concerned, they deserved everything they got.

But you--you never knew the names of any of your victims, did you?

And they certainly didn't deserve what they were getting from you.

I don't know who you are or what you're hoping to achieve...

What I want is for you to return every penny you've stolen.

...I'm sorry? I...I thought you said...

And Mark Twain said something good.

He said, "Do the right thing. You will gratify some people and astonish others."

- Mark Twain also said:

"To succeed in life, you need two things:

"Ignorance and confidence."

- Yeah; clever old sod, wasn't he?

And you, sir, are not.

You certainly have ignorance, and it would seem confidence...

But you are not going to succeed in whatever it is you're trying to do.

Unlike banking, my line of work is dependent on results, and that's what I get.

In my line of work, we approach business in two ways.

If you're in the investment market, you're a bull or a bear.

What's your point?

- Well, there's a 16th-century proverb:

"Don't sell the bear's skin before you've killed it."

Maybe you should be more cautious with your threats.

Maybe we've done enough quoting for one day, eh? Just f***ing give it back!

I don't run a successful bank by giving money away.

I'm successful because I f***ing take money.

I'll take that as a "no," then.

I must say, he didn't seem too keen.

Sounds like it's time for plan B, then.

Tin Man, come in.

What buttons do I ... which button do I press?

It's the button on the side.

- Oh come on, come on Richard, I'm just winding you up.

Oh, very droll. Everything clear out there?

Yes, yes; just me and the moonlight.

How're the old ladies doing?

Roy keeps moaning about his

shoulder, but we're getting there.

I better see what they're doing.

- Yeah, well, I'll see you soon.

Hey! Don't get caught!

-Ha ha.


I was saying, I wish we'd had

one of these back in the day.

What, to break through the brickwork, you mean?

- No, the shins.

I wouldn't have this twinge in my shoulder if

it hadn't've been for those f***ing hand drills.

Gentlemen, let's not forget we're on the clock here.

Ten minutes, 15 tops.

- You said a bleedin' half hour ago!

This is a precision job.

No, don't do that. Don't do--!

Well that was a lucky swing.

- It's all in the shoulders, Royzee.

Oh yeah, take a piss.

- Gentlemen...

Come on, give us a hand with this.

Let's see if the ol' magic's still there, eh?


Is that a good "hmm" or a bad "hmm?"

Harley says he'll piss it.

There you go. What did I say?!


- Your back and my shoulder...

How come Butch never ended

up with any career side-effects?

I keep telling everyone: I'm

the young gun on the firm.


Wait! Wait.

That's the trouble with you young

all brawn and no brains.


What color is this one?

Looks purple.

- That's magenta.

Well, what's the difference?

It's the difference between the alarms

going off and the alarms not going off.

Oh...yeah. No, that's magenta.

It's the difference between the alarms

going off and the alarms not going off.

Oh...yeah. No, that's magenta.

So I cut this one, right?



"Everything has its limit."

"Iron ore cannot be educated into gold."

- What?

Mark Twain.

- Oh, yeah.

Mark who?
