Noah: Well, I hope you're right about this scheme. Because in my opinion, these paintings are turning out rather well. Come here, take a look at these.
Alexander: I've seen them, I've seen them. In my line, I've handled a lot of paintings, and if you want my advice, for the future of your artistic career, I don't think I'd cut any ears off. (Noah glares) Not yet, anyway. Well, I'm sorry, I thought you wanted me to be honest.
Noah: I hired you to steal. When I want somebody to be honest, I'll get them.
Alexander: Your paintings are safe.
Alexander: Yeah, I locked them in the vault.
Noah: In the vault? What are they doing in the vault? Hey, wait a minute, what are you up to?
Alexander: Nothing. I'm not up to anything. I just felt that paintings that had been used in the most daring daylight bank robbery should be preserved for posterity. That's all.
Noah: Oh. Umm, Al, you know that my position is such that , um, well, if you're thinking of using those paintings to embarrass me all over Washington...
Alexander: Would I do that to you?
Noah: You bet you would.
Alexander: You're probably right.
