[McCauley, Shiherlis, and Cheritto enter the lobby of the Far East Bank from different entrances, disguised as customers. Shiherlis steps up to the desk. Cheritto coughs, signalling for him and McCauley to put on their ski masks. At the desk, Shiherlis suddenly spins around and attacks one security guard, and McCauley and Cheritto draw their guns, while Shiherlis ties up and disarms the guard he has tackled, then puts his mask on]

[draws his gun on another guard]

Don't move! Don't fuckin' move! Put your hands in the air! Put your hands in the air! Put 'em up!

[the terrified guard puts his hands up]

Get on your knees! Get on your knees!

[McCauley binds the guard's hands behind his back and then pushes him to the ground. McCauley then gets up on the top of one of the desks]

We want to hurt no one! We're here for the bank's money, not your money. Your money is insured by the federal government, you're not gonna lose a dime! Think of your families, don't risk your life. Don't try and be a hero!
Lt. Vincent Hanna
Neil McCauley
You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I gotta put you away, I won't like it. But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down.There is a flip side to that coin. What if you do got me boxed in and I gotta put you down? Cause no matter what, you will not get in my way. We've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate. Not for a second.

Lt. Vincent Hanna

My life's a disaster zone. I got a stepdaughter so fucked up because her real father's this large-type asshole. I got a wife, we're passing each other on the down-slope of a marriage - my third - because I spend all my time chasing guys like you around the block. That's my life.A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner." Now, if you're on me and you gotta move when I move, how do you expect to keep a... a marriage?

Chris Shiherlis
L.A.P.D. Gee, what, where the fuck did this heat come from?Maybe it's the score they were onto, the place, not us. 'Cause it's been hit a couple of times, you know, or something?Assume they got our phones, assume they got our houses, assume they got us, right here, right now as we sit, everything. Assume it all.
Roger Van Zant
Neil McCauley
[McCauley calls Van Zant on the phone]What are you doing?What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone.I don't understand.'Cause there is a dead man on the other end of this fuckin' line.

You know, I chased down some crews; guys just lookin' to fuck up, get busted back.

Bank Guy
Gimme the key!What key?

[Neil socks bank guy in the face, who tumbles backwards, and extracts the necessary key; the bank guy struggles in pain]

Don't move! Sit there. Sit there! Let it bleed.

Waingro

[has gun on a severely injured Waingro]

Look at me. *Look at me!*[doesn't want to and whimpers] Look at me![slowly pathetically looks upward][fires two shots into Waingro's chest][makes some wild horrible gasping sound][aims upward and fires a third shot, this one into Waingro's head]
Trejo
Armoured Truck Driver

Michael Cheritto
Waingro
[the armored car is approaching the robbers]Here we go.

[McCauley starts to perform a three-point turn with the ambulance, to block the armored car. Shiherlis and Waingro start up their tow truck, and speed towards the stopped car. The driver looks up just as the truck broadsides the car, turning it over. The car skids across the parking lot of a rental car dealer, crushing several cars. As the dust settles, the men put on hockey masks and come out, guns drawn, and Chris starts hammering an explosive charge into the rear doors]

[into his radio] 211! 211! We're being held up!

[as the men stand guard, Shiherlis listens to the police scanner]

[Police Scanner]: 211, armored car...

[Shiherlis picks up his radio]

There's the call. Three minutes.

[He starts the clock and tosses it to McCauley]

Clear!

[He presses the detonator several times, setting off the explosive charge. The blast blows open the truck's back doors, and shatters a row of windows on all of the cars in the parking lot. He then pulls the guards out of the truck, and Waingro takes them hostage. Shiherlis goes into the truck and locates the sheets of bearer bonds. As they wait, Waingro keeps the guards frozen in place by holding a Star Megastar handgun on them, and McCauley checks the time, while Trejo deploys a spike strip across the street]

80 seconds left![to the guards] Get back. Get back!

[pistol-whips the first guard. Cheritto gives him a disapproving look]

Hey slick, see that shit comin' outta their ears? They can't fucking hear you! Cool it!

[Shiherlis finds the last of the sheets he needs, and exits the armored car]

All right guys! Let's go!

[Waingro continues to train his gun on the guards]

You had to fuck with me.

[pause]

You wanna fuck with me?

[shoots the first guard in the head. The second guard starts to reach for his ankle holster, and McCauley empties his gun into the guard's chest. Cheritto trains his gun on the third guard. With a nod from McCauley, Cheritto gives the guard a double tap to the chest. He then steps up and delivers a final shot to the head]

Michael Cheritto
[in diner] Anyone want some pie?

[no response, Chris sees something out the window]

I gotta go use the john.

[gets up and Cheritto goes to sit where Trejo was at the end of the table]

[enters the diner. Trejo returns, Cheritto gets up, Trejo takes his place as Cheritto sits down next to Chris. Neil sits down next to Waingro, waiting for an explanation]
Neil McCauley
Don't move. Don't fuckin' move. Put your hands in the air. Put your hands in the air. Put 'em up.
