Shorty:
I didn't like to say so, but I don't really fancy going to Paris meself.



Henry Holland:
Why?



Shorty:
Well a friend of mine, he pinched a couple of tickets for the Test Match, see? I wouldn't half like to see that.

Pendlebury:
By Jove, Holland, it's a good job we're both honest men.



Henry Holland:
It is indeed, Pendlebury.

Pendlebury:
Now it's all over, I suppose I may dare say it's been a most remarkable coup.



Shorty:
The biggest job of its kind since One-Eyed Dobson got away with the GIs' pay packets. Two million dollars, Grosvenor Square, 'forty-five.



Henry Holland:
That was before devaluation. And this is one million pounds.



Shorty:
Oh, that's right. Blimey. We've got the record!

[just as he is planning the robbery, Holland is told that he is being promoted to another department]



Henry Holland:
I'm too old to change my views now, sir.



Turner:
Nonsense. You're never too old to better oneself. Think of what you can do with an extra 15 shillings a week.



Henry Holland:
But sir, I like the bullion office. It holds all I ever wished for.



Turner:
The trouble with you, Holland, if I may speak frankly, is that you do not have enough ambition. When a good opportunity comes along grab it with both hands. May not occur again.



Henry Holland:
Very good, sir. I'll follow your advice.


[Holland leaves in order to put his plans for the robbery into motion]

[Holland enters the yard and sees Lackery wobble past on a bicycle]



Henry Holland:
You're teaching the wrong man!



Pendlebury:
Well, I had to change him over. Shorty can't ride a bicycle.


[Lackery falls]



Henry Holland:
Doesn't look as if he can either.



Shorty:
We're learning him.



Henry Holland:
Why couldn't you learn Shorty?



Pendlebury:
Because Lackery's color-blind.



Henry Holland:
What's that got to do with it?



Pendlebury:
Oh my dear Holland, do use your intelligence! If a policeman were to come along and see a green sunset over a purple sea...



Henry Holland:
All right, all right, spare me the details.
