Mr. Blue: Ladies and gentlemen, it might interest you to know that the City of New York has agreed to pay for your release.
Spanish Woman: As soon as the money gets here, will you let us go?
Mr. Blue: Soon after.
Old Man: Excuse me, sir. Would you mind telling us now how much you’re getting?
Mr. Blue: Why is that of interest to you, sir?
Old Man: Well, a person likes to know his worth.
Mr. Blue: One million dollars.
Old Man: That’s not so terrific.
