[Toilet flushes]

HI, HONEY.

YEAH. WELL, I--I PRETTY MUCH JUST GOT HERE.

PRETTY MUCH.

WELL, THAT'S WHY I'M NOT IN TOWN.

I'M CALLING YOU NOW.

OH, SHIT.

NO, I JUST-- OH, SHIT!

[Female newscaster] ...ALMOST IDENTICAL WITH MORNING LOWS IN THE HIGH 70s AND AFTERNOON HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90s.

I THINK THAT'S PERFECT PICNIC WEATHER FOR THIS SUNNY INDEPENDENCE DAY.

[Man] HEY, JESSE. TODAY'S THE BIG DAY, HUH?

YEP.

YOU GONNA GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME?

I HOPE SO.

[Male newscaster] WELL, HE'S DONE IT AGAIN.

ANOTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTION HAS FALLEN VICTIM TO HIS THEATRICS.

FOR THE LATEST ON THIS STORY, WE GO TO CINDY VARGAS IN CERRITOS.

THIS IS THE 10TH BANK IN AS MANY MONTHS TO BE ROBBED IN THIS FASHION.

FEDERAL AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THIS STRING OF HEISTS TO BE THE WORK OF A SINGLE PERPETRATOR AND HAVE DUBBED HIM "HAMLET"

DUE TO THE UNUSUAL WAY IN WHICH HE PERFORMS.

IT SEEMS HE HAS A FLAIR FOR SHAKESPEARE, AND APPARENTLY HE'S GETTING SOME RAVE REVIEWS.

I AIN'T NO EXPERT ON SHAKESPEARE, BUT HE WAS PRETTY DAMN GOOD.

[Vargas] THE F.B.I. HAS TRACED HIS ILL-GOTTEN GAINS TO A NUMBER OF CHARITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THE SEARCH FOR HAMLET CONTINUES.

FOR K.G.A.B, THIS IS CINDY VARGAS REPORTING LIVE FROM CERRITOS.

WHOO!

THAT'LL PUT SOME HAIR ON YOUR CHEST, HUH?

YOU OUGHTA POUR SOME OVER YOUR HEAD.

AH, GO FUCK YOURSELF, BILLY.

HEY, YOU GET ANY ACTING WORK YET?

YOU KNOW, IF I EVER GET REALLY DESPERATE, I CAN ALWAYS BECOME A DIVORCE ATTORNEY, CAN'T I?

IT'D BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF WAITING TABLES.

I'M NOT A FUCKING WAITER! ALL RIGHT?

HEY! HEY! HEY!

TO UNDYING FRIENDSHIP.

OH, NO.COME ON.

TEDDY?

[Teddy] YEAH, YOU KNOW WHAT SHE SAYS ABOUT LIQUOR WITH ME-- "NO."

[Buzz] YOUR DAD KNOW YOU'RE BACK IN TOWN?

[Billy] NO, NOT YET.

HOW IS THE OLD BASTARD ANYWAY?

I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT HIM.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING I CARE ABOUT.

[Buzzer sounds]

[Exhales deeply]

HOW LONG HAS HE BEEN IN THERE ANYWAYS?

ASK SOL.

WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

I SLEEP JUST FINE AT NIGHT, OK? I HAVE A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT, SOL. I'M SURE HE DOESN'T HOLD IT AGAINST YOU.

WHAT'S 3 YEARS OF A MAN'S LIFE, RIGHT?

[Teddy] HEY, THERE HE IS.

[Gate buzzes]

WELL, THANK YOU, CAHILL.

THAT'S VERY SWEET OF YOU.

[Cahill] SEE YOU SOON.

[Gate buzzes]

DO I KNOW YOU GUYS?

[Chuckling]

SO, YOU FAMOUS YET?

I'M WORKING ON IT.

YOU'RE WORKING ON IT.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

TEDDY! COME HERE.HEY.

HOW'S THINGS?

PREDICTABLE.

PREDICTABLE, HUH?

BUZZARD...

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

WELL, YOU GOT 2 IN THE TOWER WITH RUGER MINI-14s, 30-ROUND MAGS, 5.56-CALIBER, FULL METAL JACKET, ONE ON THE PERIMETER WITH A REMINGTON 870 PUMP, 12-GAUGE, DOUBLE-OUGHT BUCKSHOT.

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

H.K. U.S.P. 9MM, [Whistles]

AND FOR THOSE SPECIAL OCCASIONS, WE HAVE A LOVELY WALTHER P.P.K.

YOU'RE PACKING?

COULD YOU SAY THAT A LITTLE BIT LOUDER?

I'M NOT SURE ALL THE GUARDS HEARD YOU.

THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW, OK?

I'D RATHER BE TRIED BY 12 THAN CARRIED BY 6.

SOL, PLEASE ADVISE HIM.

YEAH, SOL, WHY DON'T YOU GO AHEAD AND GIVE HIM SOME OF YOUR EXPERT LEGAL ADVICE?

I DON'T DO CRIMINAL LAW ANYMORE.

NO?

YEAH.

[Buzzer sounds]

LET'S GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE.

[Sighs]

HEY, IT'S STILL HERE!

[Sol] GLAD I'M NOT.

CAN'T IMAGINE ANYTHING WORSE THAN STILL LIVING HERE.

[Jesse] TRY BEING IN A STATE PRISON FOR ABOUT A THOUSAND DAYS.

JESS.

YEAH?

I WANTED TO ASK YOU A KINDA PERSONAL QUESTION.

UM, CAN I?

YOU WANT TO ASK ME?

WELL, WITH THE, UM-- WELL, IN PRISON, HOW DO YOU KEEP FROM GETTING, UM...

[Whispering] BUTT-FUCKED?

OH, COME ON, TEDDY!

OH, MY GOD.

NO. I MEAN, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT BIG A DEAL.

I'M SERIOUS. IT'S-- I MEAN, I WAS LIKE YOU GUYS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMETHING I'D NEVER DO, NOT FOR ME, BUT...

[Sighs]

I LIKED IT, YOU KNOW?

I MEAN, THERE WERE POINTS WHEN I WAS ACTUALLY CRAVING IT.

YOU KNOW, I WAS LONGING FOR IT.

THERE'S SOMETHING REALLY NATURAL ABOUT IT.

[Scoffs]

DON'T TELL ME YOU'VE NEVER AT LEAST THOUGHT ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

OH, PLEASE! NO!

WELL, TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST, I'VE HAD DREAMS ABOUT IT.

SURE.

[Teddy] YEAH, I'VE HAD-- UH...

I HAD ONE DRE-- NOT A DREAM, THOUGH.

IT WAS ACTUAL. OH, NEVER MIND.

JUST AN EXPERIENCE, WHATEVER.

THAT WAS BEFORE I WAS WITH MARY AND ALL.

MMM.CONFESSION TIME, HUH?

ALL RIGHT. I WAS OUT ON MANEUVERS ONCE, I WAS SHARING A FOXHOLE WITH THIS GUY AND HE STARTED TO COME ON TO ME.

SO, I DON'T KNOW I--

I LET HIM BLOW ME.

I GOTTA TELL YOU. IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES, IT'S THE EXACT SAME THING.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO DO THAT.

WHAT THE FUCK? YOU GUYS ALL GOING QUEER ON ME?

I MEAN, TEDDY, YEAH, THAT I COULD UNDERSTAND, BUT, UH, COME ON!

YOU KNOW, SOL, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A QUEER TO FUCK ANOTHER MAN, RIGHT?

[Laughing]

[Teddy] WOW, THIS PLACE HASN'T CHANGED SINCE HIGH SCHOOL.

I'VE NEVER BEEN MORE SURE ABOUT ANYTHING IN MY LIFE.

HEY, TEDDY, I NEED TO GET SOME CASH.

UM, CAN IT WAIT?

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?

HOPE IS THE BIG DEAL.

SHE'LL KILL ME.

JESSE?

I DON'T THINK THAT TAPE'S GONNA MATTER MUCH ANYMORE.

AND MUCH TO THE HORROR OF THE CROWD AND THIS REPORTER, SHERIFF AND INSURGENT MAYORAL CANDIDATE BUD PHILLIPS HAS RUTHLESSLY ORDERED HIS MEN TO OPEN FIRE ON HIS VERY OWN SON.

BILLY IS BELIEVED TO BE NONE OTHER THAN HAMLET, WHO HAS FURTHER FRUSTRATED INVESTIGATORS BY LEAVING BEHIND AN UNUSUAL CALLING CARD:

SIZABLE DONATIONS TO LOCAL ORPHANAGES.

THIS MOCKERY HAS LANDED HIM ON THE F.B.I.'S MOST-WANTED LIST AND HAS SOME CALLING HIM A MODERN-DAY ROBIN HOOD.

THE STANDOFF CONTINUES.

THIS IS CINDY VARGAS REPORTING LIVE FROM MEMORIAL STATE BANK DOWNTOWN.

[Bell tolls]

[Siren sounds]

[Exhales deeply]

[Clears throat]

HEY.

I'M THINKING, UH...

THINKING YOU SHOULD SHOW ME HOW TO USE THIS.

TEDDY.WHAT?

IT'S NOT A TOY.

[Imitates gunshot]

POP.

OH, MAN. I'M LIKING THIS. I LIKE THAT.

IT'S GOT A NICE FEEL, DOESN'T IT?

NO. I MEAN THIS.

IS THAT BAD?

I THINK I MUST'VE DONE SOMETHING REALLY FUCKED UP IN ANOTHER LIFE, 'CAUSE ALL I REALLY EVER WANTED TO DO WAS JUST GET MARRIED AND PROCREATE.

HE'S HATED ME SINCE THE DAY I WAS BORN.

[Sighs]

DO YOU EVER WANNA HAVE KIDS?

WHAT?

YOU EVER THINK ABOUT KIDS?

[Sirens wailing]

NO.

I'M NOT GOING BACK.

LOOK, JESS...

I'LL GET YOU OUT OF THIS.

I PROMISE.

SHERIFF.

BILLY'S COMING OUT, AND HE WANTS TO TALK.

WELL, IT'S ABOUT TIME.

UH, TO CUERVO...

SIR.

[Cheering]

[Woman] BILLY!

[Man] LET 'EM GO!

YOU THINK YOU COULD GET US SOME FOOD AND SOMETHING TO DRINK?

THAT COULD BE ARRANGED.

[Man] HEY, HAMLET!

I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH THAT GUY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH WITH THIS.

YEAH, I DO.

HE'S WORRIED ABOUT YOU.

YOU GOTTA TALK TO HIM, BILLY.

[Crowd chanting] HAMLET! HAMLET!

HAMLET!

"ANGELS AND MINISTERS OF GRACE DEFEND US!

"BE THOU A SPIRIT OF HEALTH OR GOBLIN DAMN'D, "BRING WITH THEE AIRS FROM HEAVEN

"OR BLASTS FROM HELL, "BE THY INTENTS WICKED

"SAY, "WHY IS THIS?

"WHEREFORE?

"WHAT SHOULD WE DO?"

[Applause]

[Cheering]

[Teddy] WELL, I'M THINKING WE SHOULD, UH...

ASK FOR POLITICAL ASYLUM IN...

ARGENTINA.

WHAT? WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

[Sol] I THINK YOU'RE A SCHMUCK.

YOU SHOULD TURN YOURSELVES IN BEFORE SOMEBODY GETS KILLED.

FIRST TIME OFFENDERS.

YOU'RE ONLY LOOKING AT 3 TO 5.

MONTHS?

YEARS.

IF SOMEONE DIES...

THEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT LIFE.

EXCEPT ME. I'M LOOKING AT LIFE NO MATTER WHAT.

3 STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT, RIGHT, SOL?

3 TO 5 YEARS, HUH?

AH, WHAT THE HELL?

I'VE BEEN IN MY OWN LITTLE PRISON FOR THE LAST 10.

IT'S CALLED MARRIAGE.

NO, IT DOESN'T END LIKE THIS.

SO WE NEED A--

[Clears throat] PLAN.

WHAT IF WE ASKED FOR A PLANE?

WE CAN FLY TO MEXICO. THEY DON'T EXTRADITE.

[Sol] BILLY, WE'RE IN INDEPENDENCE.

WHAT ARE WE GONNA FLY OUT IN, A CROP DUSTER?

[Jesse] WHAT ABOUT A BUS?

WE COULD TAKE IT TO BAKERSFIELD AND JUST TRY FLYING OUT FROM THERE.

DOG DAY AFTERNOON--

THEY TAKE YOU OUT AT THE AIRPORT.

I HAVEN'T SEEN IT.

HEY, YOU GOT ANY BRIGHT IDEAS?

YOU HEARD ME, I'M NOT INVOLVED IN THIS.

OK, THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP.

UH, YOU COULD GET A HELICOPTER, LAND IT ON THE ROOF, ACCESS IT THROUGH THE AIR DUCTS WITHOUT EVEN GOING OUTSIDE.

REALLY?

AND WHO'S GONNA FLY IT?

I WILL.

WHO IS THIS GUY?

I GUESS...

I'M WHAT MOST PEOPLE COMMONLY REFER TO AS THE DISGRUNTLED VIETNAM VET.

I SUFFER FROM POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER, OCCASIONAL BOUTS OF MALARIA, FLASHBACKS, NIGHTMARES, I GOT A STEEL PLATE IN MY ASS, I WET THE BED, I'M CONVINCED THAT MY BODY IS BEING CONSUMED BY CANCER, WHICH MIGHT EXPLAIN MY SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, BUT...

I CAN FLY THE HELL OUT OF A HUEY.

LT. JOHN G. COLEMAN...

AT YOUR DISPOSAL.

"GONZO" COLEMAN?

WHERE'D YOU HEAR THAT NAME?

HOLY SHIT!

YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

THIS GUY IS A LEGEND.

[Grumbles]

[Buzz] VIETNAM. '68 TO '70.

HE FLEW OVER 300 MISSIONS IN THOSE 2 YEARS.

23 CHOPPERS SHOT OUT FROM UNDERNEATH HIM, 52 AIR MEDALS, 12 SILVER STARS, 5 PURPLE HEARTS AND THE CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR.

IT'S A PRIVILEGE.

NO SHIT?

GREEN BERET?

SO WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT OF UNIFORM?

HOW DO YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THIS BANK?

I'VE BEEN CASING THIS PLACE FOR MONTHS.

I WAS GONNA ROB IT MYSELF, EXCEPT THAT YOUR BUDDY OVER HERE GOT THROUGH THE DOOR FIRST.

LIFE...

IT'S JUST A SERIES OF COINCIDENCES.

OR A COMEDY OF ERRORS.

THEY WANT A CHOPPER.

AW, FOR CHRIST'S SAKES.

SIR. SIR.

BAKERSFIELD P.D.'S ON THE LINE, WANNA KNOW IF THEY CAN GET IN ON THE ACTION.

I GUESS IT'S A LITTLE SLOW OVER THERE.

YEAH? TELL THEM TO MIND THEIR GODDAMN BUSINESS.

WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL HIM?

[Sighs] AH, DON'T TELL HIM ANYTHING.

I'VE GOT SOME THINKING TO DO.

[Crowd cheering]

SIR, I THINK YOU BETTER TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

UH-OH. JESSE...

I THINK YOU BETTER TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

[Carter] SO WHAT'S THE POOP?

THE POOP IS...

HAMLET WORKS ALONE.

WELL, SEEMS LIKE HE PICKED UP SOME MERRY MEN ALONG THE WAY.

[Carter] ABLE TO I.D. ANY OF THEM?

[Exhales]

BUZZ THOMAS, TEDDY POLLACK, AND, UH, BILLY PHILLIPS.

[Hoover] PHILLIPS?

ANY RELATION?

PERHAPS AN INBRED COUSIN?

[Agents chuckling]

HE'S MY SON.

OH. [Clears throat]

SO WHAT ARE THEY DEMANDING, MORE ALLOWANCE?

THEY WANT A CHOPPER.

SO GIVE IT TO 'EM.

ON WHOSE AUTHORITY?

MINE.

RELAX.

BIG BROTHER'S HERE.

YOU LISTEN TO ME, YOU IVY-LEAGUE PRICKS.

THIS IS MY TOWN, AND THAT'S MY SON IN THERE.

NO, YOU LISTEN TO ME, DADDY.

THIS IS OFFICIALLY UNDER MY JURISDICTION, AND ANY TIME I WANT, I CAN AND WILL TAKE OVER THIS OPERATION.

MAKE NO MISTAKE--

THIS ISN'T MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.

I WANT HAMLET.

JERRY AND I-- GOD REST HIS SOUL--

SO I TOLD HIM...

"I HAVE NOTHING MORE TO SAY TO YOU.

"YOU JUST GET ON OUT OF HERE."

OH, HOW SAD.

DID HE LEAVE YOU?

HE STORMED OUT THE DOOR, AND HE WAS SO BUSY CUSSING ME OUT THAT HE WALKED RIGHT IN FRONT OF A GREYHOUND BUS.

SPLATTERED HIM ALL OVER MY AZALEAS.

DO YOU LOVE HIM, HONEY?

MORE THAN ANYTHING.

MORE THAN ANYTHING IN THE WORLD.

THEN DON'T WASTE TIME.

YOU NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH YOU GOT LEFT.

[Sirens wailing]

[Terry] HONEY? HI.

ARE YOU WATCHING?

YEAH.

NO, YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. YOU DON'T-- WHY?

I KNOW, BUT WHY-- WHY SHOULD I?

BECAUSE YOU SAY SO.

OK, UM, ACTUALLY, I'VE GOT A LITTLE NEWS FOR YOU...

BABY.

THE DAYS OF YOU "SAYING SO"

ARE OVER, OK?

I'M NOT TURNING MYSELF IN.

I'M SORRY. WHAT?

WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO ME?

OHH. OK.

YEAH, WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO ME?

MAYBE SOMETHING CALLED LIFE.

LIFE!

NO, YOU LISTEN!

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY MISERABLE, MUNDANE, CANDY-ASSED FUCKING EXISTENCE, I'M HAVING A LITTLE BIT OF FUN, AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA FUCKING SPOIL IT, GET IT?

GOT IT?

FUCKING GOOD!

[Sighs deeply]

HOW'S IT GOING?

THE SAME.

SO I TAKE IT THEY FOUND OUT, HUH?

WHAT?

THE ARMY.

BE ALL YOU CAN BE, BUT DON'T BE QUEER.

[Scoffs]

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

I'M TALKING ABOUT YOUR GENDER PREFERENCE.

[Laughs] I THINK ONE OF THOSE BULLETS MUST HAVE BOUNCED OFF YOUR HEAD.

OH, YEAH?

LOOK ME IN THE EYE, AND TELL ME I'M WRONG.

[Laughing] YOU'RE FULL OF SHIT.

AM I?

"THIS ABOVE ALL," BUZZ.

"TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE, "AND IT MUST FOLLOW, AS THE NIGHT THE DAY, "THOU CANST NOT THEN BE FALSE TO ANY MAN."

I DON'T UNDERSTAND A WORD YOU JUST SAID.

[Crowd singing] ♪ AMAZING GRACE

♪ HOW SWEET THE SOUND

♪ THAT SAVED A WRETCH

♪ LIKE ME DECAF, RIGHT?

YOU EVER HAVE ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE YOU JUST WANNA MOW DOWN THE WHOLE FUCKING CROWD?

NO.

YOU'RE YOUNG.

GIVE IT TIME.

♪ BUT NOW I SEE WHERE ARE THE SNIPERS I ORDERED?

A.T.F. WILL BE HERE WITHIN THE HOUR.

CHOPPER?

GASSED AND READY.

I WANT YOU TO POSITION THE SHOOTERS ON THE ROOF OF THAT BANK AND ON THE BUILDING ACROSS THE STREET.

WE'LL BRING THE CHOPPER IN AT DAYBREAK, AND SET IT DOWN OVER THERE.

WHEN THEY MAKE THEIR MOVE, THE SUN WILL BE IN THEIR EYES, AND WE'LL HAVE THEM IN A CROSSFIRE.

NO ONE WILL KNOW WHO DID THE SHOOTING.

WHAT ABOUT THE HOSTAGES?

IT'S A TRAGEDY, CARTER.

♪ BUT NOW I SEE OHH, GOD!

OH, GOD, I USED TO GET OFF ON IT, MAN.

THE ADRENALINE RUSH.

MISSION AFTER MISSION, I COULD NOT GET ENOUGH.

AND THEN ONE DAY...

I DROPPED MY FIRST HIT OF ACID, AND IT ALL CAME CLEAR.

I TOOK A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT WE WERE DOING.

I SAID IT WAS WRONG, SO I GROUNDED MYSELF.

AND THE ONLY REASON THAT I AM NOT IN LEAVENWORTH IS BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMEWHAT EMBARRASSING FOR THE ARMY TO ADMIT THEIR MOST CELEBRATED COPTER JOCKEY SUDDENLY DEVELOPED A MORAL CONSCIENCE.

[Toilet flushes]

SO THEY GAVE ME SECTION 8 AND SENT ME HOME.

[Water runs]

SO WHAT'S YOUR SAD STORY?

OH, I, UH...

I WASN'T EXACTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH STANDARD MILITARY PROCEDURES.

A REBEL, HUH?

[Water stops running]

I GUESS YOU COULD SAY THAT.

I WAS DEEMED INAPPROPRIATE FOR THIS MAN'S ARMY.

ALL I EVER WANTED TO BE WAS A SOLDIER, TO SERVE MY COUNTRY, TO WEAR THAT UNIFORM.

AND THEY TOOK ALL THAT AWAY FROM ME.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, SERGEANT.

A UNIFORM DOES NOT MAKE A SOLDIER.

A SOLDIER IS SOMEONE WHO IS WILLING TO STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR WHAT HE BELIEVES IN, BE IT HIS GOD, HIS COUNTRY OR HIS FRIENDS.

AND IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU ARE BLACK, WHITE, RED, YELLOW, MALE, FEMALE, STRAIGHT OR GAY, WE ALL BLEED THE SAME.

WELL, I WAS SURE THAT I HAD RUN DOWN EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE SCENARIO OF WHAT COULD HAVE GONE WRONG TODAY, BUT THIS ONE WINS THE PRIZE.

HOPE, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GONNA GO ON WHEN I WALKED IN THE DOOR.

I KNOW THAT. IT DOESN'T MAKE IT ANY EASIER, BUT I KNOW.

YOU STILL-- YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE COME IN HERE.

IT, UH...

WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO, WAIT AT THE ALTAR?

CATCH YOU ON TELEVISION?

WAIT TO FIND OUT IF YOU WERE...

I LOVE YOU.

I HAD TO COME.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAY HERE.

YOU CAN'T.

YOU KNOW, SCREWING UP MY LIFE IS ONE THING, BUT I'M REALLY TIRED OF SCREWING UP YOURS.

YOU NEED TO MOVE ON TO SOMETHING BETTER--

TO SOMEONE BETTER.

HOPE...

I'M LETTING YOU GO.

[Giggles]

OH.

REALLY?

Y-YEAH.

[Laughs]

THAT IS SO...

THAT'S SO...

MALE!

HA! "I'M LETTING YOU GO."

OH, WELL...

IF I COULD'VE LET YOU GO, I WOULD'VE LET YOU GO A LONG TIME AGO.

LET'S GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT.

I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE

"TILL DEATH DO US PART,"

AND I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD JUST DROP THE MACHO SHIT.

IF THAT'S REALLY THE WAY YOU FEEL, THEN I DON'T THINK THAT YOU LEAVE ME ANY OTHER CHOICE.

[F.B.I. agent] HOW MANY BIRDS YOU GOT AVAILABLE?

THEY WANT A PRIEST.

AW, CHRIST! IS SOMEBODY DEAD?

NO. SOMEBODY WANTS TO GET MARRIED.

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

[Hoover] GIVE IT TO THEM.

[Phillips] WHAT?

YOU HEARD THE MAN.

HE SAID, "GIVE IT TO THEM."

AND I SAID NO.

I'D BE THE LAUGHINGSTOCK OF THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.

ARE YOU CHALLENGING ME?

I JUST THINK--

I DON'T GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK, JOHN BOY.

GO SET IT UP, CARTER.

[Woman] NO, IT'S NO PROBLEM.

SOL.

COULD I MEET YOU IN THERE?

SURE.

LOOK, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GONNA SAY, OK?

WHAT A SELFISH LITTLE BASTARD I AM.

ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR MY OWN SKIN.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYONE OR ANYTHING BUT MYSELF, RIGHT?

UM, ACTUALLY, I WAS GONNA ASK YOU IF YOU'D STAND UP WITH JESSE INSTEAD OF STANDING WITH THE HOSTAGES.

COME ON, HOPE. HE DIDN'T EVEN INVITE ME. YOU DID.

YES, AND YOU DIDN'T STEAL THE RING.

HE DID.

YOU CAN'T KEEP BLAMING YOURSELF FOR HIS MISTAKES.

NO, BUT I CAN FOR MINE.

LOOK, I'M THE ONE WHO REFUSED TO PLEA BARGAIN, I'M THE ONE WHO TOOK IT TO TRIAL, I'M THE ONE WHO LOST.

WHAT PLEA BARGAIN?

THAT'S RIGHT.

I DIDN'T TELL HIM. DO YOU GET THE PICTURE?

I WANTED TO GO TO TRIAL, I WANTED TO PROVE MYSELF, SO I DIDN'T TELL HIM.

[Sighs] I DIDN'T TELL ANYBODY.

JESUS, HOPE, I TOOK HIS LIFE AWAY.

I TOOK YOUR LIFE AWAY.

SO...

HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT ME NOW?

LIKE FORGIVING YOU.

WHO GIVES THIS BRIDE AWAY?

I WILL.

JEROME WILLIE MAYS JOHNSON.

MY DAD WAS A GIANTS FAN.

THANK YOU.

[Priest] GENTLEMEN, WE ARE GATHERED IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.

I DON'T THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE TO BE BRANDISHING WEAPONRY DURING THE CEREMONY.

WE'RE IN A BANK.

WELL, WE'RE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AND WE'LL BE RECITING THE WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR, AND THEY MAKE ME NERVOUS.

[Clears throat]

[Priest] IN CIRCUMSTANCES SUCH AS THESE, I LIKE TO START BY READING FROM THE SCRIPTURES.

LET US PRAY.

"AS THE APOSTLES GATHERED AROUND HIM, "JESUS LOOKED UPON THEM WITH GREAT SORROW, "FOR HE KNEW THAT ONE OF THEM

"WOULD BETRAY HIM.

"HE STOOD BEFORE THEM AS BOTH JUDGE AND JURY

"AND WITH A HEART FULL OF FORGIVENESS, SAID--"

FREEZE!

[Gasps]

MEDIC!

DO IT, I SWEAR TO GOD, I'LL KILL YOU.

YOU WOULDN'T SHOOT A MAN OF THE CLOTH, WOULD YOU?

I'M JEWISH.

[Crowd talking excitedly]

WHO THE HELL FIRED THOSE SHOTS?

RELAX, POPS.

WE JUST ELIMINATED THE PROBLEM FOR YOU.

THE PRIEST WAS ONE OF OURS.

THIS HURTS.

IT FUCKING HURTS!

GOT YOURSELF A MILLION-DOLLAR WOUND HERE, SOLDIER.

YOU'RE GOING STATESIDE.

IT HURTS!

HANG IN THERE, TEDDY. YOU'RE GONNA MAKE IT.

[Teddy] OOH, NO. TAKE ME OUT, BILLY. JUST TAKE ME OUT.

I'M A WOUNDED HORSE. I CAN'T RACE ANYMORE.

OHH.

[Teddy] OW.

YOU'RE NEVER GONNA GET OUT OF HERE ALIVE, MR. GREEN BERET--

OR SHOULD I SAY PINK BERET?

WE KNOW ALL ABOUT YOU.

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DO TO BOYS LIKE YOU--

[Teddy] IT HURTS!

COME ON. HANG IN THERE, TEDDY.

[Hope] YOU'RE GONNA BE OK. I PROMISE.

WE GOTTA GET HIM OUT OF HERE.

NO, I'M NOT GOING OUT. YOU KNOW WHAT? ACTUALLY, I AM FINE.

I AM FINE. I FEEL FINE.

[Buzz] TEDDY. TEDDY, IF YOU DON'T GO, YOU'RE GONNA DIE.

BUZZ, I'M NOT GONNA GIVE MYSELF UP.

I'M NOT A COWARD. OW!
