[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.

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.

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]
