Robert "Mac" MacDougalEdit

  • I'm never late. If I am, its because I'm dead.
  • It's impossible. But doable.
  • Believe me, I was prepared for everything - except you.
  • In order for there to be complete trust between thieves, there can be nothing personal.
  • We'll either both get caught or both get dead.
  • You know what they say about fear. The only remedy is to cut off the head.


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 there ever been anyone you couldn't manipulate, beguile or seduce?
Gin: No.

Gin: You stole my suitcase?
Mac: I'm a thief. So sue me.

Gin: I said this is called entrapment.
Mac: No. Actually, it's called blackmail. Entrapment is what cops do to thieves.

Mac: What's the job?
Gin: Like the wise man said: first we try then we trust.

Mac: You are the most beautiful crook I've ever seen.
Gin: Why, thank you kind sir.

Mac: I don't like surprises.
Gin: Trust me, there won't be any.
Mac: Trust me, there always are surprises.

Mac: I have absolutely no reason to believe anything you say.
Gin: But you want to.

Gin: Look what you've done to that beautiful car!
Mac: Thank God it's not mine.

Gin: Is all this paid for?
Mac: With blood.

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.

[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.


  • Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Then again, practice makes perfect.
  • The trap is set.
