Pendlebury:
Well, you might as well know. I was lying. I am a thief. It was madness to attempt it. We weren't cut out for crime, either of us.



Policeman:
We?



Pendlebury:
My partner and I.



Sidewalk Vendor:
Your partner? Here, if you're working with the fence who's got them other pictures...



Policeman:
Shh! Carry on.



Pendlebury:
Oh I make no excuses. All my life it's been my ambition to surround myself with rare and beautiful things. Suddenly faced with this golden opportunity...



Sidewalk Vendor:
Here, you call that picture of mine rare and beautiful?



Pendlebury:
Since you will keep on interrupting me, you ought to know it's a charming example of an early Rochet, while he was still under the influence of Corot.



Sidewalk Vendor:
Oh yeah? How much is it worth?



Pendlebury:
Ten pound, to those who can afford it.



Sidewalk Vendor:
Oh blimey. I've had it marked up for five bob.

Lackery:
Bellamy's? In Bromley?



Shorty:
That's right. Last June. Twelver.



Lackery:
I was casing that joint the night you got pinched.



Shorty:
Well, what do you know? Shorty Fisher.



Lackery:
Nice to meet you.



Pendlebury:
Excuse me, I may be a bit slow but do I understand that in fact, you two are both professional criminals?



Shorty:
Well, what else do you take us for, rutty snoopers?



Lackery:
What's the setup?

[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]
