Dialogue edit

[Gin wakes up to see Mac sitting in her room]
Mac: Rule number one: never carry a gun. If you carry a gun you may be tempted to use it.
Gin: What are you doing here?
Mac: I'm going to ask you some questions. If I don't like your answers, you're going out the window. Why are you following me?
Gin: I've got a proposition for you.
Mac: How do I know that you're not a cop?
Gin: I-I don't know. You-You're just going to have to trust me.
Mac: Rule number two: never trust a naked woman.

[Mac has just shown Gin pictures of her shadowing him at the Cryptonic offices and she's not amused]
Gin: I said this is called entrapment.
Mac: No. Actually, it's called blackmail. Entrapment is what cops do to thieves.

[Mac invites Gin to the top of his castle for a drink ahead of the Bedford Palace heist]
Mac: Beautiful view, isn't it? It helps me to see things more clearly. [moves with Gin closer to the edge] You know, I never come up here without [leans over the edge with her] dropping something off.
Gin: [looks down and glares at Mac, thinking he was referring to her being disposed of] Go ahead then.
Mac: We leave in two hours. [drinks and throws his wine glass off]

Thibadeaux: Where's the honey?
Mac: In the loch, training. I told her I swim for an hour everyday; so, she'll do it for two.
Thibadeaux: So, when is it we do the dirty?
Mac: Maybe we should wait a bit. She's got a bigger job after this one.
Thibadeaux: This is big enough, Mac.
Mac: It's never big enough.

Thibadeaux: Well, Mac, this looks like the end of a terrible friendship. But you still owe me for today.
Mac: I always pay my debts. [Hands over superchips] Four prototype superchips. Value: five million dollars each.

[at the Pudu LRT station, a train passes and Gin appears on the opposite platform]
Mac: How did you do it?
Gin: I jumped trains mid-station. When the train slowed down I just... It was perfect.
Mac: Was it now?
Gin: [starts walking along the platform] You know what, Mac? I don't want to hold the record alone.
Mac: No?
Gin: I need your help on another job.
Mac: Wow. The crown jewels or something?
Gin: [smiling] No! Come on! Too easy.
