Ocean's 11 Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Ocean's 11 script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the movie starring George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, etc.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Ocean's 11.

Ocean's 11 Script



One con under escort. Open gate one.



Man walking.



Open gate two.



Let's go. Face the wall.

Got one under escort.



-Good morning.




-State your name for the record.

-Daniel Ocean.



Thank you. The purpose of this

hearing is to determine...



...whether you are

likely to break the law again.



This was your first conviction,

but you were implicated...



...in a dozen other schemes

and frauds.



What can you tell us about this?



As you say, ma'am,

I was never charged.



We're trying to find out...



...if there was a reason

for committing this crime...



...or just a reason

you got caught this time.



My wife left me. I was upset.

I got into a self-destructive pattern.



If released, is it likely you'd fall

back into a simllar pattern?



She left me once. I doubt

she'd do it again just for kicks.



Mr. Ocean, what do you think

you would do if released?



-Chips, pIease.




-Change    . Quarters or nickels?

-Quarters are fine.



-Good luck.

-Thank you.



Twenty. Dealer has   . Good start.

I heard he was teaching moyie stars

how to play cards. Why?



You have a plan already?



Are you kidding?

I just became a citizen again.



Offllcer Brooks...



...this is Danny Ocean. I was told

to contact you within    hours.



No, sir, I haven't

been getting in troubIe.



No, sir, I haven't been drinking.



No, sir, I wouldn't eyen think

about Ieaying the state.



Hey, Russ! Rusty. What's up, man?



Let me ask you a question.

Are you incorporated?



You should think about it.

I talked to my manager--




-Not Bernie. My business manager.



Actually, they're both named Bernie.



He said what we do could

be considered research...



...for a future gig, so I could

make it a tax write-off.



The one thing is, and this is

his thing and it's stupid...



...but I'd have to pay you by check.



Or we could just stick to cash.



Yeah, Iet's just stick to cash.



We'll begin with fiye-card draw.

Everyone remember that?



Who wants to start us out? Josh?



Josh. To the left.



Deal to your left.




-Hit me.



-It's not bIackjack.




Looking at them doesn't change them.

You know what you have.



-Left. Left.

-Left, I'll get it.



Lady bets. Let's keep it moying.




-Blue, that's a   .

Pretend it's for a reason.



Yeah, thanks, man.




-How many?




-You don't want four. You wanna foId.



-I wanna foId?




Is that good?



You're done. Let's take that.

You're done.



You're done. You have three pairs.



You can't have six cards

in a fiye-card game.



-Maybe one was mine.

-Wasn't me.






All reds.



What up, dog?



I'm gonna love spending your money.

I'm gonna get my car washed.



-How's the game going?

-Longest hour of my life.




-I'm running away with your wife.






Isn't that hard, crossing over

from teleyision to fllm?



Not for me, dude.



Hey, Russ. We got another player...



...if that's cooI with you.



What do you do for a llying?

If you don't mind me asking.



Why would I mind you asking?



Two cards.

-Why were you in prison?



I stoIe things.



You stoIe things? Like jeweIs?



Incan matrimonial head masks.



-Any money in Incan matrimonial--?

-Head masks. Some.

Ioads if you can move them.

Let's see them.



I'm not sure what four nines does,

but the ace, I think, is pretty high.



Thanks for the tip on bluffing.



Hey, Topher! How about an autograph?

Come on, real quick.



-God, I'm bored.

-You Iook bored.



How was the cllnk?

You get the cookies I sent?



Why do you think I

came to see you first?



-So tell me.

-It's tricky.



It's neyer been done before.

It'll need planning and a Iarge crew.




-Not quite. High security. The take--



-The target?

-Eight figures.



What's the target?



When was the last time

you were in yegas?



You want to knock over a casino?



The yauIt at the Bellagio.



If I'm reading this right,

and I'd like to think I am...



...this is probabIy the Ieast

accessibIe yauIt eyer designed.



You said three casinos?



These feed into the Mirage and MGM

Grand, but every dime ends up there.



The Bellagio and the Mirage.



-These are Terry Benedict's places.

-Yes, they are.



-Think he'll mind?

-More than somewhat.



You'd need at Ieast     guys

doing a combination of cons.



Like what, you think?



Off the top of my head, I'd say you're

Iooking at a Boesky, a Jim Brown...



...a Miss Dalsy and a Leon Spinks.



Not to mention the biggest

Ella Fitzgerald eyer.



Where will you get

the money to back this?



Hit these three casinos,

we'll get our bankroll.



Benedict's got a llst of enemies.



But enemies with Ioose

cash and nothing to Iose?










Oscar, Iower it a bit, would you?



Sorry. You guys done?

Find what you want?



We'll take these for the night

to make copies.



-Whateyer you need.

-Appreciate it.






I need a reason.



And don't say money. Why do this?



Why not do it?



I just left the joint after

Iosing four years of my life...



...and you're cold-decking

Teen Beat cover boys.



Because the house always wins.



play Iong enough,

the house takes you.



UnIess, when that perfect hand comes,

you bet big. Then you take the house.



-You practiced that speech?

-Did I rush it?



It was good.

The Teen Beat thing was harsh.



I wonder what Reuben will say.



You're out of your damn minds!



You're both of you nuts!



I know more about casino security

than any man. I inyented it.



And it cannot be beaten.



They got cameras and watchers,

they got Iocks.



They got timers, yauIts.



They got enough armed

personneI to occupy Paris!



Okay, bad exampIe.



It's neyer been tried.



It's been tried.

A few guys eyen came cIose.



You know the three most successfuI

robberies in yegas?



Number three, the bronze medal.



Pencll neck grabs a

Iockbox at the Horseshoe.



Grab the guy in the suit!



He got two steps cIoser to

the door than anyone before.



Leaye the money!



Second most successfuI robbery:



The FIamingo in '  . This guy

actually tasted fresh oxygen...



...before they grabbed him.



Ofcourse, he was breathing out

ofa hose for the next three weeks.



Goddamn hippie.



And the cIosest any man

has eyer come...



...to robbing a Las yegas casino...



... was outside of Caesars in '  .



He came...



...he grabbed...



...they conquered.



But what am I saying? You guys

are pros. The best.



I'm sure you can make

it out of the casino.



Of course, Iest we forget...



...once you're out, you're stllI

in the middIe of the fucking desert!



You're right. He's right.



Our eyes were bigger than

our stomachs.



-That's what it is. Ego.

-Yeah, bIah, bIah.



-Thanks for lunch.

-The nicoise was dellcious.



-Sorry to bother you.

-Look, we go way back...



...and I owe you from the thing

with the guy.



-Our pIeasure.

-I'd neyer been to Bellze.



Giye Dominic your addresses.

I got some furniture to send you.



Just out of curiosity, which casinos

did you genluses pick to rob?



The Bellagio, the Mirage and

the MGM Grand.



Those are Terry Benedict's casinos.



-Is that right?

-That's right.



You guys...



...what do you got against

Terry Benedict?



What do you have against

him, is the question.



He torpedoed my casino.

Muscled me out.



Now he's gonna blow it up next month

to make way for some monstrosity.



-I see what you're doing.

-What are we doing?



If you're gonna steal from Terry

Benedict, you better goddamn know.



This used to be ciyllized.

You'd hit a guy, he'd whack you.



But Benedict....



At the end of it, he'd better not

know you're inyoIyed.



Because he'll kllI you,

then he'll go to work on you.



That's why we have to be

very carefuI, very precise.






You gotta be nuts too.



And you're gonna need a

crew as nuts as you are.



Who do you got in mind?



-alright, who's in?

-Frank C. is in.



Frank has bronchitis and is appIying

for a transfer to warmer cllmates.






-I talked to the Malloys.

-Mormon twins?



They're in Utah, off thejob.



They're haying

All right, chaps...



...hang on to your knickers.



Oh, Ieaye it out!



You tossers! You had one job to do!



That's all you used in the eyent?



-You accusing me of booby-trapping?




Booby traps aren't Mr. Tarr's styIe.

Isn't that right?






Peck. ATF.



Let me yenture a guess.



SimpIe G-  malnllner, back wound,

quick fuse with a drag under    feet.



Let me ask you this.

-You could ask him.

-Hey, I could ask him.

men's room when I placed my bet.



I saw you before you eyen

-How you been, Saul?

-Neyer better.



What's with the orange?



-My doctor says I need yitamins.

-Why don't you take yitamins?



You come here to giye me a physical?



Box seats. Come on.

You're the best. You're in

Cooperstown. What do you want?



Nothing. I got a dupIex now.



I got wall-to-wall and a goIdfish.



I'm seeing a Iady who works the

Guys like us don't change.

We stay sharp or get sIoppy.



Quit conning me.



That your hound way in the rear?



He breaks Iate. Everyone knows this.



You going to treat me

like a grownup at Ieast?



Tell me what the scam is?



Exhibit C: His beIt as

Lennox Lewis has proyed

he's the champion.



Saul makes   .

Ten should do it, don't you think?



You think we need one more?



You think we need one more.



alright, we'll get one more.



Hello, Linus. Whose is this?



-Who are you?

-A friend of Bobby Caldwell's.



You're either in or out. Right now.



-What is it?

-It's a plane ticket. A job offer.



-You're pretty trusting.

-Bobby has falth in you.



Fathers are like that.



He didn't tell you? He doesn't

want me trading on his name.



Do this job, he'll be

trading on yours.



Don't, and you can go back to

feellng up stockbrokers.



Can you get the check, pIease?



That's the best llft you'ye made yet.



Las yegas?



America's playground.



Did you guys get a group

rate or something?



Saul, do you get out to Utah much?



Not as often as I'd like.



Check it out. I think you'd dig Proyo.

You could do well there.



I'll Iook into it.



WeIcome to Las yegas.

Has everybody eaten? Good.



Everybody sober?



CIose enough. Before we start,

nobody's on the llne yet.



What I'm about to propose is highIy

lucratiye and highIy dangerous.



If that's not your brand of yodka...



...eat as much as you like and have

a safe journey. No hard feellngs.



Otherwise, come with me.



You're Bobby Caldwell's kid?



-From Chicago?




-You like it there?




That's wonderfuI.

Get in the goddamn house.



The      bIock of

Las yegas BouIeyard...



...also known as the

Bellagio, Mirage and MGM Grand.



They're three of the most

profitable casinos in Las yegas.



This is the Bellagio yauIt, Iocated...



...beneath     feet of solld earth.



It safeguards every dime that passes

through each of the three casinos.



-We're gonna rob it.

-Smash-and-grab job?



SllghtIy more compllcated than that.



Well, yeah.



This is courtesy of Frank Catton,

a new dealer at the Bellagio.



Bad news first.



This place houses a security system

riyallng most nucIear sllos.



First, we have to get in the casino

cages, which takes more than a smlle.



Next, through these doors...



...each one requiring a different

code changed every     hours.



Past those, the eleyator.

Here's where it gets tricky.



-It won't move without fingerprint I.D.

-Which we can't fake.



And yocal confirmation from the system

within the Bellagio and the yauIt.



Which we won't get.



The eleyator shaft is rigged

with sensors.



If we override the llft, the exit

would Iock and we'd be trapped.



Once we get down the shaft,

it's a piece of cake.



Just two more guards with Uzis...



...and the most eIaborate yauIt

door eyer conceiyed.



Any questions?



Tunnellng's out. There are...



...sensors monitoring the ground.

If a groundhog nested, they'd know.



-Anyone eIse?

-You mentioned good news?



Yeah. The Neyada Gaming

Commission requires...



...a casino to keep enough cash to

cover every chip in play on the fIoor.



That means on a weekday

it must carry...



...between $   and $   million in

cash and coin.



On the weekend, between    and   

million. On a fight night...



...like in two weeks,

the night we're robbing it...



...$     million,

without breaking a sweat.



There are    of us,

each with an equal share.



You do the math.






I have a question.



Say we get into the cage

and through the security doors...



...down the eleyator

we can't move...



...past the guards with the guns,

into the yauIt we can't open--



-And not seen by cameras.

-Sorry, I forgot to mention that.



Yeah, well, say we do all that...



...we're just supposed to walk out of

there with $     million...



...without getting stopped?






Oh. Okay.



First task: reconnalssance.

I want to know what goes on...



...in all casinos, from

the dealers' rotation...



...to the path ofcash carts. I want

to know everything about every guard.



This girl Charmalne...



Find out where they're from,

nicknames, how they take their coffee.



...dances at Crazy Horse Too.

It pays for her schooI.



-I think she really likes me.




Know these casinos.

They were bullt to keep peopIe in.



Know the quick routes out.



-He went through at   :  .

-  :  . Get a watch that works.



-You make me sick, dude. It's   :  .

-  :  .



Second task: power.



On fllght night, we'll throw

the switch on Sin City.



-Basher, it's your show.

-You want broke, bllnd or bedIam?



-How about all three?

-Right, it's done.



Third task: suryellIance.



Security has an eye

and an ear on everything.



We want an eye and ear on them.




It's not the Ieast accessibIe

system I'ye seen.



-There's no cIosed-circuit to tap into?




Then it's definiteIy a bIack bag job.

They empIoy an in-house technician?



Two. And one of them is IoneIy.



Thanks, Charmalne.

I'll return it in an hour.



-Say hi to your mom for me.

-Say it yourself. She's on-stage soon.



Watch it, bud!



-You call me bud, pal?

-You call me pal, friend?



-You call me friend, jackass?

-Don't call me jackass.



    we have a yisual impalrment

on the northwest     exit-door camera.



Copy that. I see them.



-Is that a word? You made that up?

-''Obsequious'' is a word.



-Sir, pIease move your balloons.

-You got in my way!



-I was trying to dellyer balloons!




-He's a balloon boy! Balloon boy!

-You're spitting in my face.



And we're up and running.



-Why are hallways always that coIor?

-They say taupe is very soothing.




-Fine, thanks.



-move the balloons.

-move them?



An important cllent is waiting for

these. I don't have time...



...for you circus animals.



Hey! HoId up a minute!



Excuse me!



Hey! Excuse me!



-Hey, you dropped this.

-Oh, thank you.



-How's the reception on those things?




-Take care.








Fourth task: construction.



We need to bulld an exact

repllca of the Bellagio yauIt.



-To practice?

-Something like that.



Fifth task: intelligence.

We need those codes, Linus...



...from the guy who has all three.



-Who, Benedict?

-Learn to love his shadow.



-All I get to do is watch the guy?

-Gotta walk before you crawI.



-Reyerse that.

-Sixth task: transport.



Well, I am sorry, but $      a piece

is the best offer that I can make.



Well, I understand.



-They are some great-Iooking yans.

-Yes, sir, top of the llne.



-Okay. Thank you for your time, Mr...?

-Denham. Billy Tim Denham.



-Denham like a jean.

-That's it. Just like the jean.



Man, you got some loveIy hands here.

Do you moisturize?



-I'm sorry?

-I'ye tried Iots of Iotion.



I eyen went fragrance-free

for a year. Now my sister...



...she uses aloe yera

with a llttIe sunscreen in it.



Ideally, we all should

wear gloves to bed...



...but I found there was interference

with my social agenda, you know.



Plus, I react to the camphor. So

I'm not into the traditional remedies.



Let me tell you something.

If you could pay cash...



...I could drop that

down to seyen--



Sixteen each.




-Yes, sir.



-You'd do that?

-Yes, sir.



That'd be loveIy.

They told me to see you.



-Well, I'm gIad they did.

-They told me.



Well, Iet me go get the paperwork.

You just wait here at the table.



-You do that.

-Thank you.



-very nice material.

-It's imported sllk, Saul.



It's very nice.



Gentlemen, would you excuse us

for a second? Thanks.



Saul, you sure you're ready

to do this?



If you eyer ask me

that question again, DanieI...



...you won't wake up

the following morning.



He's ready.



My name is Lyman...






My name is Lyman Zerga.



My name is Lyman Zerga.



Okay, tell me about Benedict.



That guy's a machine.



Good afternoon.



He arriyes at the Bellagio

every day at   p.m.



How are you, Tommy?



He remembers every yalet's name.



Not bad for a guy worth

 /  ofa billion.



He works hard, hits the

lobby floor at   on the nose.



-Good eyening, sir.

-How are you?



-Talks with his casino manager.

-About what?



All business.



Benedict likes to know

what's going on. Be in control.



There's rareIy an incident he doesn't

know about or handIe personally.



Spends a few minutes

gIad-handing the high rollers.



He speaks Spanish, German and Italian

and is getting good at Japanese.



He 's out by  :  

and is handed a bIack portfollo.



Contents: profits and new security

codes. He heads to the restaurant.



Like I said, a machine.



That portfollo contalns

codes to all the cage doors?



And two minutes after they're changed,

he's got them.



You guys really can pick them.

This guy's as smart as he is ruthless.



Last guy he caught cheating,

he not onIy sent up for    years...



...he seized his house and

bankrupted his--



In-Iaw's dealership.



He takes out your knees and ruins

your life and anybody you know.



You scared?



You suicidal?



OnIy in the morning.



-Now what?

-Now comes the girl.



She comes down after him

if they're in a snit.



-Where does she come from?

-The museum, there. She's the curator.



Here she is.



This is the best part of my day.



I'm not sure we can use her yet.

I haven't eyen caught her name.









Her name is Tess.



-We have to talk. Now.




Tell me this is not about her

or I walk off the job.






Tess. Benedict.

Tell me this isn't about...



-...the guy who's screwing your wife.




-Tell me.

-It's not about that.



It's not entirely about that.

Remember when we got in this business?



We said we'd play

like we had nothing to Iose.



Well, I Iost something.



I lost someone.

That's why I'm here.



The problem is,

now we're stealing two things.



And if you can't have both,

which do you choose?



Remember, Tess does not split    ways.



If everything goes to plan, I won't be

the one that has to make that choice.



-How'd she Iook?

-She Iooked good.






You like it?



I like that you like it.



-I'll see you tonight?




In my hoteI, there's always

somebody watching.



I'll see you tonight.



Weak stomach, Mr. Zerga?



I don't belleye in weakness.

It costs too much.



I don't belleye in questions either.



Oh, really? Well then,

Iet me giye you a tip.



Don't get into Terry Benedict

for too much money.



He doesn't fooI around.



-How are you, Eddie?

-Fine, sir.



Anything for me?



Mr. Lyman Zerga. Third position.

Wants to talk to you privately.



Who is he?



Businessman of some kind,

from Europe.



very yague. I asked around.

Word is, he deals primarlly in arms.



-One of the biggest.




Yes, sir.



-Neyer heard of him.

-That's why I don't doubt it.



-He's staying here?

-He's in the Mirador suite.



-How's he doing?

-Up, almost    .



Good for him.



You're    seconds Iate.

I was about to send out a search....



Hello, Tess.



What are you doing here?



I'm out.




-Of prison.



Remember? I went for cigarettes

and didn't come back.



I don't smoke. Don't sit.



-SupposedIy I pald my debt to society.

-Funny, I neyer got a check.



You're not wearing your ring.



I sold it. I don't have a husband

or didn't you get the papers?



-My last day inside.

-I told you I'd write.



-Danny, go now before--

-What? Benedict?



How you doing? Whiskey and whiskey.



You're doing a great job at the museum.

The yermeer is quite good.



-yibrant. But his work fell off Iater.

-Remind you of anyone?



I always confuse Monet and Manet.

Which one married his mistress?




-And Manet had syphllis.



They also palnted occasionally.



All right, I'll make this quick.



I came here for you.



I want to get on with my life.

I want you with me.



You're a thief and a llar.



I lled about being a thief.

I don't do that now.







I'm with someone who

doesn't have to make...



-...that kind of distinction.

-He's cIear on both.



-You have a probIem.

-OnIy one?



You'ye met too many peopIe like you.

I'm with Terry now.



Does he make you Iaugh?



He doesn't make me cry.



-The fight is Saturday night?

-Yes, would you like tickets?



No. Hand-to-hand combat

does not interest me.



I have a package arriying

here that eyening.



A bIack briefcase, standard size...



...the contents of which

is very yaluabIe to me.



I'll put it in the house safe.



The house safe is for brandy

and grandmother's pearIs.



-I need something more secure.

-Mr. Zerga, I can assure you our--



I can assure you, Mr. Benedict,

that your generosity in this matter...



...will not go overIooked.



Now, what can you offer me

besides the safe?



PeopIe you steal from have insurance.

They get made whoIe again.



I left New York to escape what

happened. Can I get fiye years back?



-What you can do is not throw--

-You don't know anything.



You don't love me,

you're with someone eIse, fine.



I have to llye with that.

But not him.



Just like an ex-husband.



-I'm not joking.

-I'm not Iaughing.



There's a confllct of interest

when you...



-...giye me adyice about my love life.

-But that doesn't mean I'm wrong.



Do you remember what I said

when we first met?



-That I better know what I'm doing.

-Do you? Now?



You should go if you don't.



I know what I'm doing.



What are you doing?



Just catching up.



-Meet my ex-husband.

-Danny Ocean.



-Mr. Ocean.

-I'm in your seat.



Forgiye my Iateness.

A guest required my attention.



That's fine. Danny was walking

through and spotted me.



-Is that so?

-Imagine the odds.



''Of all the gin joints

in all the world.''



You recentIy were

released from prison?



That's right.



-How does it feeI to be out?

-About the same.



-Danny was just about to--

-I just stopped by to say hi to Tess.



Stay, have a drink.



-I can't.

-He can't.



Well, then....



I imagine we won't see

Mr. Ocean anytime soon.



You neyer know.



I know everything

happening in my hoteIs.



So I should put

those toweIs back.



No, the toweIs you can keep.



-Good to see you, Tess.

-Take care, Danny.










Tomorrow the day is yours.



Call is at  :   makeup and costume.



Saul's package arriyes at  :  .

Linus grabs our codes.



All goes well, we're a go. At  :  

Yen is Iocked in and we're committed.



From this point, we have    minutes

to blow the power or he suffocates.



Once the electricity goes,

access to the yauIt...



...and its eleyator shut down for

two minutes. That's when we go.



You're in the middIe of the

room,    feet from everything.



You have to get to the door

without touching the fIoor.



What do you do?



-Ten says he shorts it.




Window or alsIe, boys?



Yeah, we're in deep shit.



That poxy demo crew

didn't back the maln llne.



They naused up the malnframe.

Naused it up!



-You understand him?

-I'll explaln Iater.



They're so pony they bIew the

backup grids one by one.



Basher, what happened?



They did what I would have done

but by accident.



Now they know their weakness,

they're fllxing it.



So unIess we intend to do this job

in Reno, we're in Barney.



Barney RubbIe. TroubIe!



-We could always--

-By tomorrow?



Hang on a minute, hang on.

We could use a pinch.



What's a pinch?



A deyice which creates a cardiac

arrest for broadband circuitry.



Better yet, a pinch is a

bomb without the bomb.



When a nucIear weapon detonates,

its electromagnetic puIse...



...shuts down any power source

within its blast radlus.



It usually doesn't matter because a

nucIear weapon destroys everything.



A pinch creates a simllar

electromagnetic puIse...



...without mass destruction and death.

Instead of Hiroshima you get...



-...the    th century.

-How Iong?






could a pinch knock out

the power of an entire city?



-Like, for instance--

-Las yegas?



Yeah, I think it might.



There's onIy one pinch

big enough to do it.






Let's go. Yen, Basher, come on.



Where you going?



-I'm coming with you.




Oh, no, no, no!

Don't Ieaye me with these guys!






-I got one.

-You thinking of one?



-No, I'ye thought of one.

-You're thinking of one.



No, I'm done. I have it.



-You a man?

-Yes.    .



-You allye?

-Yes.   .



-EyeI IKnieyeI.




-Don't touch me.

-I'm not.



-Your hand's in my face.

-It's not.



-Am I touching you?

-Your hand's in my face.




-I didn't touch you.



-You just touched me.

-You made me touch you.



This is your side.

This is your side.



Get off. Get off.



I'm gonna need a score of

car batteries--



Where's Linus? Where's Linus?



-There he is.

-Oh, would you Iook at this doughnut?



should someone heIp him?



That's a great idea, albert.

Let's all get nicked.



Back it up.



Let him in.



You stupid bastard!



-I say stay, you stay.

-Got it.



Lose focus for one second,

somebody gets hurt!



I got it.



Where are they?



That's what I want to know.

Where the hell are they?



-They will be here.

-''They will be here.'' Schmuck!



You boys have a nice trip?



We have a probIem.



You'ye been red-fIagged.



The moment you enter the casino,

they'll be watching.



Like hawks. Hawks with yideo cameras.



That's a probIem.



-Saul, turn that off.

-When I'm ready--




-It's off! It's off!



Any idea how this happened?




-Oh, come on.



He's been chasing Benedict's girl.

They had an argument two nights ago.



-I talled you.

-Who told you to?



I did. I worried you couldn't

Ieaye Tess alone.




-My wife.




-Tess is here?



I'm sorry. I didn't know if it

would sting you, but it did.



-You're out, Danny.

-He's out?



Or we call it off.

His inyoIyement puts us at risk.



-It's not your call.

-You put her before us and made it mine.



This is my job.



Not anymore.



He can't just be out.

Who's gonna trigger the yauIt?



IKid, you up for it?



I can do it.



Done. Locate the others.

Tell them the change in plan.



Curtaln goes up at  .



Tess is with Benedict now?

She's too tall for him.



Yes. No.



very much no.



Then inform Mr. Leyin he'll be better

off watching the fight at home on Ty.



SureIy, he must have HBO.

That's it.






What were you thinking about?






Where you gonna put your hands?



No good.



Don't touch your tie. Look at me.



You need to answer my question.

Where do you Iook?



No. Look down, they know you're Iying.

Up, and you don't know the truth.



Don't use seyen words if four will do.



Be specific, but not memorabIe.

Be funny, but don't make him Iaugh.



He's got to like you,

then forget you once you Ieaye.



And, for God's sake,

whateyer you do, don't--



Russ! Can you take a Iook at this?









It's time.






Let's do it.



On a perfectIy cIear night

in Las yegas...



... with the expected crowd of

celebrities and sports fans...



...plling into the MGM Grand, the two

best heayyweights in the world...



...prepare to meet after an

eight-month dance toward each other.



Mr. Zerga?



Mr. Benedict.



-I'm very busy. Are we on scheduIe?

-I have no reason to suspect otherwise.



My courier should be here momentarlly.



Eighteen. BIackjack!



Find Mr. Walsh. Tell him Mr. Ocean

is in the west sIots.



I can't have priyate security personneI

in the casino cages.



Of course not.



Saul! Saul BIoom, is that you?



Saul! Saul, it's me! Bucky Buchanan!



Remember? From Saratoga!



MikaeI. yIadimir.



Hey! Hey, Saul! Saul!



Mr. Benedict, pIease.



I have neyer enjoyed the touch

of steeI to my skin.



Lift them up, pIease.



I acknowIedge your briefcase contalns

nothing dangerous or llllcit.



I agree to take said briefcase

and store it in my yauIt...



...for a period of    hours.



-I cannot allow you into the yauIt.

-Why not?



Insurance, for one. Security. But,

most of all, I just don't trust you.



Excuse me.



I put two plalncIothes on Ocean.

He's in the keno bar now.



Mr. Zerga, this is my

casino manager, Mr. Walsh.



He will have your briefcase stored

in our yauIt whlle you watch.



Those are my terms. Yes or no?



You Ieaye me no choice.



Dude, don't do that in

front of the pinch.



Deep breaths. You'll do fllne.



-Thank you.

-No sweat. You're a natural.



But don't screw up.



-Who gets the penne?

-Right here.



You ready?



This is our security center,

where we oversee the casino and yauIt.



You'll monitor your briefcase

from here.



Don't Iet me keep you.



-Mr. Zerga.

-Mr. Benedict.



Linus, you're up.



Got him.

How does that feeI?

You all right?



Want something to read?

A magazine?



All right. Counting down.



Thirty minutes of

-About    months.

-You know Hal LindIey? Worked with him?



Not since he died last year.

Thank you.



-No. I want you out of here.

-Giye me one moment.



-I'ye had it. I want you gone.

-Tess, come here.



You're up to something.



Don't say you're here for me.

You're pulling a job, aren't you?



Well, no matter what it is,

you won't win me back.



Tess, I just came to say goodbye.






You be good.



-Mr. Ocean.

-Mr. Benedict wishes to see you.



I thought he might.



Good afternoon, Mr. Escalante.

Or should I call you Mr. Catton?



You're Frank Catton, of

Penitentiary system. Are you not?



I take it from your sllence

Goddamn cracker.



-Excuse me?

BIack man can't earn a decent wage?



-You wanna throw me on the street.

-I'm doing my job.



Want me to get on the table and dance?



Shine your shoes? Smlle at you?



You sure won't Iet me deal the cards.

You might as well call it whitejack!



I don't know what to say to that.

Race has nothing to do with it.



-Yeah, right.

-What a horribIe thing to say!



You, of all peopIe, know the NGC has

-No! I didn't mean it!

-Okay. Come on, sit down.

-He's got it.

-Sit down.

-High roller's room.



-It's Mr. Benedict's stuff.

-Joe, take this inside.

Yo! HoId that, pIease.

That's my cue.



Giye Basher the go.



Bash, what's your status?




-Easy. No need to shout, guy'ner.

-Oh, dear God!



Oh! I forgot my pager.

I left it. Sorry.



-IKnow the way back?

-I do.






Okay. Enjoy the fight.






How much Ionger you figure

No cameras in this room, huh?






Don't want anybody seeing

what goes on in here.



He's not coming, is he?



We're gonna step outside.

Leaye you two to talk things over.



I hadn't seen my wife in three weeks,

so I decided to call her.



''I love you, you love me.''

''I miss you, you miss me.''



That went well, but then

I went to this party....



I show up at   p.m.

She expected me at     a.m...



...so she was going crazy.

I said, ''What do you expect?



What do you think goes on?

It's not choir practice.''



Oh, shit.



Does that satisfy you, Mr. Zerga?



I am very satisfied.



-Are you all right, sir?

-I'm fine. I'm fine.



All right.









-Not untll Iater!

-Sorry, Danny. I forgot.



It's all right.



-How's your wife?

-Call a doctor! Mr. Zerga!

-Put this under his head.



Going to yideo now.

-You didn't trust me?

Come on.

-How'd you get here?

-Had to giye a friend two million.



But what about Rusty? The argument?

I mean, what was that about?



Come on. Why not just tell me?

Why put me through all this?



Where's the fun in that?

Let's get going.



Come on, man! Breathe!



Breathe, damn it! Breathe!



I'm sorry. We'ye Iost him.



-Dude, I told you to hurry.

-Don't do that. Just don't.



I didn't tell you to hurry?



Come on, get up! Get up!



Had enough yet?



-These things are gonna hoId us, right?

-They should.



Liyingston, we're set.



-Liyingston, we're set.

-Basher, we're set.



Hang on a minute, chief.



We don't have one.

Yen's gonna suffocate.



Then you should

All right, crack them.









Cut it.






Pit six, table fiye.

Dealers compromised.



Trade's breached at tables three,

fiye, six and ten.



Get your coat. Get your coat.



Look, this is crazy! What...?



Not yet. Not yet.



Go ahead.



-You think Yen made it out okay?

-I'm sure he'll be fine.



How we doing?



Okay, I guess.



There's a   -pound Chinese man

with $     million behind this door.



-Let's get him out.




-   says he shorts it.

-No bet.



Try him again.






Hey. Where we at, boys?



-Pins and fIoor sensors, now.




Here we go.



Counting down from   . Now.






-Don't blow the door. Can you read me?




...nine, eight...



-Maybe the pinch bIew out his earwigs.

-Do not blow the door!



...two, one.



What's wrong?






Did you check the batteries?



You know, Iose focus

in this game for one second--



I know, somebody gets hurt.

You don't hear Yen complalning.






Where the fuck you been?







That is the sexiest thing

I'ye eyer seen.



Rusty, you're up.



-You gonna answer that?

-I don't have a cell phone.



This isn't mine.



See who it is.




-May I have a word with Mr. Benedict?



It's for you.



-Who the hell is this?

-The man who's robbing you.



-What's going on in the yauIt?

-Nothing, sir. It's all normal.



Show me.



-You're mistaken.

-Watching your monitors?



Okay, keep watching.



In this town,

luck can change that quickIy.



-Find out how much money's down there.

-Yes, sir.









Perhaps you should....



Perhaps I should what?



It would be better if you weren't

around here for this.



All right, you proyed your point.



You broke into my yauIt.

CongratuIations. You're a dead man.




-Maybe? May I ask how you will Ieaye?



You think I'll Iet you

take my money out my casino doors?



-No. You'll carry it out for us.

-Why would I do that?



Look at your monitor.



As your manager's probabIy reporting,

you have over $     million...



...in your yauIt tonight.

We 're onIy packing up half that.



The other half we're Ieaying,

booby-trapped, as a hostage.



You Iet our $   million go,

and you get to keep yours.



You try and stop us,

we'll blow both cashIoads.



You can Iose $   million secretIy

or Iose $     million publlcIy.



Your decision. Hi.



Make the call.



    emergency response.



-Where's Danny?

-He's fine. He's in good form.



-He asks that you go up and watch Tv.

-He does?



We have three men with explosiyes

who have taken controI of our yauIt.




-It's alright, Tess.



-You have a deal.

-I promise.



Fantastic. Here's what you do:



The guys in the vault will put

six bags in the elevator.



It will rise to your cages.



Three of your guards will carry

the bags out into the casino.



If they take more than    seconds to

reach the floor, or there's a switch...



...we'll blow all the money.



-He's in the casino by the slots.

-Ofcourse I am.



I'm staying in your hotel.

I have two words for you: minibar.



Once the guards

hit the casino floor...



...a white yan will pull up outside.

Your guards will Ioad the rear.



If anyone so much as approaches the

driver's door, we'll blow everything.



When I hear the yan is away and

the money secure, my men will Ieaye.



Once their safety is confllrmed,

you'll get your yauIt.



The S.W.A.T. team is here.



All right.



Now, I have complled with your

every request. would you agree?



I would.



Good. Because now

I have one of my own:



Run and hide, asshoIe. Run and hide.



If you're picked up buying a $      

sports car in Newport Beach...



...I'll be disappointed. I want my

people to find you, and when they do...



...rest assured, we won't

hand you over to the pollce.



So, my adyice to you again

is this: run and hide.



That is all that I ask.



Mr. Benedict, our guys say that

yan is headed for McCarran alrport.



I want my yauIt

back before that yan hits the tarmac.



Night goggIes on.

Prepare to cutpower.






Cutting power now.



Do it.



Breaching eleyator doors now.



We have two guards,

bound, unconscious.

Guys! Guys!

Someone's here!



-Take him down, now!

-I got him!

-Giye it to him.



What's going on?

Talk to me.



It appears an expIosiye incendiary

deyice has been detonated.



Continuing search for suryiyors.



Tell them to take the yan.

I'll be there.



And find out how they

hooked into my system!



Yes, sir.



Get out of the yan, now. Now!



Tires. Tires.



Our search yieIded no suspects.



Nor can we determine how they

entered or exited the premises.



-Take your men out.

-May I suggest you--?






It's your yauIt.

Blue team, move it out!



Walsh, where are we with the yan?



I just want to try

something for a second.



There's nobody inside.



-I'm sorry. Did you want to get in?

-Enough monkey business.



Do it already.



Mr. Benedict.

We took the yan, sir.






They say there was no

money in the bags, sir.



What do you mean?



They say the bags were fllied

with fliers, sir. For hookers.






Cue up the tape to the robbery.



Yes, sir. I'm Iooking at the tape now.



Does it say ''Bellagio''

on the yauIt floor?



No, it doesn't.

I don't understand.



We had it installed Tuesday.



The images we saw of those

men robbing us was a tape.






It was staged.

Somebody made a dupllcate of my yauIt.



What we saw on the monitor

wasn't actually happening.



I don't understand.

What happened to all that money?



Make the call.



     emergency response.



-Night goggIes on.




Prepare to cut power.



Breaching eleyator doors now.



We have two guards,

Guys! Guys!

Someone's here!



-Take him down, now!

-I got him!



Open the door.



Hey, Benedict.

How's the other fight going?



Pick him up.



Did you have a hand in this?



Did I have my hand in what?



I'll ask you one more time.



Did you have your hand in this?



Benedict, I have no idea

what you're talking about.






You're free to go.



Show him out.




-Turn to channeI   .



Who is this?



What happened, Benedict?

You get robbed?






I'll giye you one last chance.



Where's my money?



What ifI said you could

get your money back...



...if you'd giye up Tess?



What would you say?



I would say yes.



All right.



I know a guy.

We were in the joint together.



Anybody pulls anyjob in the

Western U.S., he knows about it.



Giye me    hours, I'll find

out who took your money.



You know a guy.



Contact the police. I'm sure he's

in vioIation of his parole.



Yes, sir.









You of all people should know, Terry.



In your hotel,

there's always someone watching.









wait, that's my husband!




-Tess, I told you...



...I knew what I was doing.



I didn't.



All right, Iet's go.



How Iong will you be?



About three to six months, I guess.



I hope you were the groom.



Ted Nugent called,

he wants his shirt back.



Thirteen million and you drive

this piece of shit to pick me up?



I blew it all on the suit.



-Where are they?

-Back row, silver sedan. Ten o'clock.



I picked up your personal

effects. Hope you don't mind.



I'm not sure these beIong to me.







Rusty needs a girl.



There's a women's

prison down the road.



You said that you sold this.



I said that.
