Best Quotes


Annie Wilkins: [after she sees Tom snooping around her work desk] I need a storage unit for all the crap that I have, that I don’t really want or need, but that I’m too chicken to get rid of. Actually, considering all my baggage, I might need two units, depending on how, you know, big and smelly they are.
Tom Dolan: You prefer smelly?
Annie Wilkins: Oh, I do. Who doesn’t, really?


Tom Dolan: You work here, right?
Annie Wilkins: [chuckles] I do. I do. Although, you know, I prefer to call it “paid study hall”.
Tom Dolan: Oh. You’re in college, huh?
Annie Wilkins: Don’t I look like I’m in college?


Annie Wilkins: So, let me guess. You need a storage unit.
Tom Dolan: Yes, please. Preferably one that doesn’t smell.


Annie Wilkins: [a year later, Tom breaks into an empty house to let Annie in] How did you get in?
Tom Dolan: The back door was open.
Annie Wilkins: Just because there’s a “for sale” sign doesn’t mean that this isn’t, I don’t know, breaking and entering. Trespassing?
Tom Dolan: Yeah. Maybe.


Annie Wilkins: [as they’re looking over the empty house] And Newton’s a great neighborhood. Lots of nice restaurants and parks. And I hear amazing police department, so let’s get out of here.
Tom Dolan: So I heard. Maybe they’ll go easy on us if we make a decent offer.


Annie Wilkins: Okay, are you messing with me right now?
Tom Dolan: Not in the slightest. It’s been a year, honey. One year.
Annie Wilkins: It has. It’s been a wonderful, wonderful year. I just don’t, I don’t know. I just, I haven’t lived with anyone since the divorce, and I just can’t go through that again.
Tom Dolan: You won’t have to. I promise.


Tom Dolan: [after Annie’s agreed to live together] There is something else I need to tell you.
Annie Wilkins: No. Not tonight. This girl has had enough surprises for one night. It can wait.


Sean Meyers: The divorce, it went through. It’s official. She got the house, and I got Tazzie.
Samuel Baker: [referring to the dog] Did you even want Tazzie?
Sean Meyers: No. But her freaking lawyer was asking for everything. The house, the two cars, the few stocks we own. So I started asking for everything. The judge was rational, cut everything down in the middle, except for the house and the dog.
Samuel Baker: And she preferred the house.


Samuel Baker: [after Tom calls the FBI] FBI. Special Agent Sam Baker. How can I help you?
Tom Dolan: I’m the In-and-Out Bandit. I want to turn myself in.
Samuel Baker: Give me a second.
[puts Tom on hold]
Samuel Baker: We got another In-and-Out confession.
Sean Meyers: That’s a popular one. Must be trending. Whatever that means.


Tom Dolan: I’ve robbed twelve banks in seven states. I have a little over nine million dollars in cash. And no one knows who I am.
Samuel Baker: How long did that take?
Tom Dolan: About eight years. But I haven’t robbed anything in over a year.


Tom Dolan: I want to make a deal.
Samuel Baker: A deal? What kind of deal?
Tom Dolan: I hand over all the money I stole, every penny, in exchange for a reduced sentence, no more than two years in minimum security within an hour of Boston. With full visitation rights.
Samuel Baker: You’ve thought this through.
Tom Dolan: It’s important.
Samuel Baker: And what’s so important about it?


Tom Dolan: I met a woman. She’s smart, caring, driven, funny. I adore every bit of her. I want to be with her for the rest of my days without feeling guilty about lying to her about my past indiscretions.
Samuel Baker: Well, she sounds like an incredible woman.
Tom Dolan: She is. And she means more to me than all the dollar bills in the world.


Tom Dolan: So do we have a deal?
Samuel Baker: That’s not how it works, buddy. But I’ll be happy to listen to you, and put in a good word for you, if you are in fact the In-and-Out Bandit.
Tom Dolan: What do you mean, “if”?
Samuel Baker: Listen. Ten, fifteen guys have confessed to being the In-and-Out Bandit.
Tom Dolan: You think I’m making this up?
Samuel Baker: Well, you wouldn’t be the first.


Samuel Baker: [referring to Tom] He met a woman.
Sean Meyers: Poor guy.


Annie Wilkins: What’s wrong?
Tom Dolan: What do you mean?
Annie Wilkins: I can hear it in your voice. Something’s going on.
Tom Dolan: You sound like a therapist.
Annie Wilkins: I almost am one. Although, not yours.


Tom Dolan: [referring to Baker] This is Tom Carter. I talked to him the other day.
Sean Meyers: Oh, right. The In-and-Out Bandit.
Tom Dolan: I really wish you guys would stop calling me that.
Sean Meyers: I could put in a special request. What name would you prefer?
Tom Dolan: I don’t know. In-and-Out just sounds so low rent, unprofessional. My work has always been precise, clean.
Sean Meyers: I think “clean” is taken. You want to go with “precise”? How about Precise Bandit?
Tom Dolan: Funny.


Tom Dolan: I don’t get it. I’m trying to come clean here, drop nine million dollars in your laps. Make you guys look like heroes, and you don’t believe me.
John Nivens: It’s nothing to get worked up, okay? We believe that you believe you have nine million dollars in stolen money.


Ramon Hall: Your story’s good, alright? And we’ll try to verify the facts. But I’m sorry, no one’s cutting a deal without proof.
Tom Dolan: The money.
Ramon Hall: Exactly.


Ramon Hall: [referring to Tom] You think this lady is real, or is she a delusion?
John Nivens: What, like this money?
Ramon Hall: Love is weird, man. Look, I thought I knew how much I love my wife, even before we were married, but it doesn’t compare to how much I love those two little boys. It’s just something about being a father.


John Nivens: I just feel like every new father can’t stop talking about how great it is to be a new father, you know? Wish they did it sooner. Best thing they ever did. I don’t buy it, man. I think they’re just trying to convince their friends to push out a couple of kids, so they got someone to commiserate with while they’re watching kiddie soccer.
Ramon Hall: You ever thought about snipping your balls off? I think it could be a good idea.
John Nivens: Yeah, no one’s clipping my junk.


John Nivens: [after they find the money in Tom’s storage unit ] What are we doing here?
Confiscating stolen property.
Ramon Hall: For evidence.
John Nivens: No, for our personal retirement funds.
Ramon Hall: Are you out of your mind? We can’t take this!
John Nivens: Oh, don’t act like we’re popping your cherry, okay? Please.


Ramon Hall: But we’re never going to get away with this. Carter’s going to scream bloody murder.
John Nivens: So let him. What’s one nutjob’s word against ours, huh? No one’s going to believe that “all for love” story. Alright? Where’s the evidence? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s nothing but perfect.


John Nivens: Look, the universe just dropped a gift bag of money on your doorstep. Money that doesn’t belong to anybody. Enough to never have to worry about another mortgage payment, or where you can, or can’t send those boys to school. All you got to do is pick up a box, and be a hero to your family. Hey, it’s your call.
Ramon Hall: Let’s do it.


Samuel Baker: [referring to the dog] Looks like someone’s growing on you.
Sean Meyers: Less needy than the ex.


Sean Meyers: Oh, your buddy Tom Carter called again.
Samuel Baker: What now?
Sean Meyers: He’s complaining about his nickname and nobody wants to arrest him.
Samuel Baker: Didn’t Hall and Nivens follow up on him? They must be from the “orders are optional” generation.


John Nivens: I hear you’re a Marine. How many times you ship out?
Tom Dolan: Quite a few, actually.
John Nivens: Guess that makes you kind of dangerous, huh?


Tom Dolan: [as Nivens points his gun at Tom] The cash. Did you count it?
John Nivens: What would’ve happened if I’d counted it?
Tom Dolan: When you got to three million, you would’ve run out of money.
John Nivens: Bulls**t.
Tom Dolan: Figured I might need a bargaining chip. Seems I was right.


Tom Dolan: [after Nivens shoots Baker chase after Tom] What are you doing here?
Annie Wilkins: I came to see you. Who’s shooting at us?
Tom Dolan: FBI.


Ramon Hall: I can’t believe you shot Baker.
John Nivens: Hey, you need to cut that out, alright? Wake up! I didn’t shoot Baker, Carter did.


Annie Wilkins: What did you do, Tom? Tell me what you did.
Tom Dolan: I will, Annie. I promise. But first, we have to ditch this car.
Annie Wilkins: This is your Jeep.
Tom Dolan: Not anymore.


Annie Wilkins: The In-and-Out Bandit?
Tom Dolan: I haven’t robbed a bank in over a year. In fact, I haven’t so much as jaywalked since I met you.
Annie Wilkins: Well, you just hot-wired a car.
Tom Dolan: Okay, until tonight.


Annie Wilkins: Listen to me. You have to turn yourself in.
Tom Dolan: That’s what I was trying to do. That’s what I’ve been wanting to tell you, but I didn’t have the courage.


Annie Wilkins: The first surprise was, “Let’s get a cute house in Newton and move in together,” and the second was you’re a bank robber?
Tom Dolan: I just felt if you and I were going to have a chance at a life together, which I want even more than you know, I needed to come clean to the Feds and to you.
Annie Wilkins: And you just assumed that I’d be okay with this?


Annie Wilkins: How many people have you killed?
Tom Dolan: No one. Not even in the Marines.
Annie Wilkins: You made bombs. Bombs kill people.
Tom Dolan: I didn’t make bombs. I disarmed land mines.


Annie Wilkins: You’ve been lying to me this whole time.
Tom Dolan: I didn’t lie, Annie. I just didn’t tell you certain things. I considered just keeping my mouth shut, keeping the money, but I knew that secret would eat me up inside, and hurt what you and I have.


Tom Dolan: [referring to what he lied about] Well, except, there was no water leak in my apartment. And I don’t like the health cookies you make, even though I say I do. And I agree the house needs paint, but I hate yellow.
Annie Wilkins: Paint. Cookies? Water leaks? Okay, this is not the honesty that I’m looking for, okay? Right now, I’m trying to determine if you’re a pathological liar, or a complete sociopath!
Tom Dolan: I’m none of the above.


Annie Wilkins: Then why did you keep doing it?
Tom Dolan: It wasn’t about the money. It just felt good. Like when I was sweeping for mines, not knowing if my next step was my last. Made me feel alive. And then I met you. Somehow, you gave me that same feeling of being alive, so I stopped.
Annie Wilkins: You stopped for me?
Tom Dolan: Yes. And the more time I spent with you, the more I realized what I needed in my life wasn’t money, or an adrenaline rush. It was the need to feel love. And I feel that with you. So there it is.


Tom Dolan: [referring to Nivens and Hall] The money. I was giving it back in exchange for a deal that wouldn’t keep me away from you for very long. But then those two stole the cash and tried to kill me. What’s worse, those gunshots you heard, it was them shooting another agent, which I’m sure they’ll pin on me.
Annie Wilkins: Your word against theirs.
Tom Dolan: Not a judge in the world is going to believe me over them. And with a murder one charge for killing one of their own, the Feds will come after me, and keep coming until they find me.
