Snow falls gently on the grounds. In the background, a
dignified eighteenth century classroom building is softly
lit by outdoor lights. A single light, on the second floor,
is still burning. The opening credits continue to be
assembled randomly, sans anagrams.
Dan Aykroyd Ben Kingsley Mary McDonnell River Phoenix Sidney
Poitier David Strathairn
MARTY (V.O.)
Four six nine nine four zero two,
transfer to five three zero one one
three eight.
INT. COMPUTER ROOM
The forty column display is connected to the United States
Treasury Department, and shows the transaction taking place.
$25,000.
COSMO
What did we just do?
MARTY
The Republican party just made a
generous donation to the Black
Panthers.
The camera pans across the terminal, the dial telephone
resting in the acoustic coupler modem.
COSMO
Far out!
MARTY
Right on.
COSMO
Who's next?
MARTY
Let's see... oooh...
Marty shuffles through some printouts.
MARTY
Richard Nixon's personal chequing
account is in here.
The camera continues to pan around the late sixties equipment
in the room, looking up to the huge nine track tape drive.
Empty chinese food boxes litter the room something that
hasn't changed among hackers in thirty years.2.
COSMO
(with slight sarcasm)
Ooo, this is a challenge. Marty, we
have to find somebody truly worthy
to give his money to. How about...
the National Association to Legalize
Marijuana.
MARTY
Perfect!
COSMO
Now, how much should he give?
MARTY
He's a generous man. I'd say... all
he's got!
COSMO
Yeah!
Cosmo thinks for a split second, and changes his tone.
COSMO
Marty, you are sure we will not get
into trouble for this.
MARTY
Cosmo! Trust me.
EXT. POLICE CAR NIGHT
Police officers drive slowly through the snow, and listen to
instructions on the radio.
INT. COMPUTER ROOM
COSMO
Posit. The Phone Company has too
much money.
MARTY
Oh, good one.
COSMO
Consequence.
MARTY
Uh, they're corrupt. Result?
COSMO
The system perpetuates itself at the
expense of the people. Conclusion?3.
MARTY
Ma Bell needs to donate some money.
COSMO
We're going to change the world,
Marty.
MARTY
I just wish we could get course credit
for this.
He gets up.
MARTY
Gawsh! You got it. You want some
food?
Cosmo swivels around, and holds out a coin.
COSMO
Loser goes.
Cosmo hides the coin in one of his hands, and makes it look
pretty obvious which one. He holds out both fists.
MARTY
I never lose!
He indicates Cosmo's left hand. Cosmo dramatically unfolds
it, revealing no coin.
Marty Groans. Cosmo chuckles. Marty starts to leave.
COSMO
Pepperoni pizza, please. Shaken,
not stirred.
MARTY
Power to the people, Cos.
COSMO
Power to the people, Marty.
They both make half hearted fist gestures. Marty exits.
COSMO
One cannot trust anybody these days.
EXT. COLLEGE NIGHT
Marty emerges from the front door and walks off into the
snowy night. He climbs into his snow encrusted microbus,
but it won't start.4.
MARTY
Don't do this!
Marty notices the flashing red police lights through the
snow on his windows. He rolls down a window and watches as
police and trenchcoated men pull up and run into the building.
INT. COMPUTER ROOM
Cosmo is working at the terminal. He hears a noise. He
gets up and walks across to the window. Marty is down below,
trying to signal Cosmo but it's too late. The police grab
Cosmo and pull him away.
COSMO
Marty! Marty! Wait! Wait!
Cosmo struggles, kicking out a window pane.
Marty runs off into the night. The snow turns into static
on a TV screen.
INT. SNEAKER VAN PRESENT DAY (1992)
CREASE
Martin? Martin?
Donald Crease is trying to wake up a now older Marty Bishop.
He shakes his shoulder.
CREASE
Martin? Martin?
Bishop wakes up.
CREASE
It's time.
BISHOP
How are we doing?
CREASE
Carl's in position on the fire escape.
Mother's in the cable vault. Whistler
is reading.
Whistler reads. In braille.
A noise sounds.
Whistler quickly puts away what he was reading. It's the
braille edition of Playboy.
WHISTLER
We're up!5.
BISHOP
What's with the lobby?
CREASE
Still just the one guard.
WHISTLER
(into his headset)
OK, Mother, try the ones coming off
the blue trunk.
Bishop looks out the van through binoculars, across the street
and into a building. A security guard looks around.
More noises sound.
WHISTLER
Mmmm, nope. Try the ones coming off
the white trunk, Mother, these don't
sound right.
Bishop looks down, to a manhole where Mother is working.
More tones sound.
EXT. MANHOLE
WHISTLER
(over headset)
No.
MOTHER
They even got photos of the guy
leaving the embassy through the back
service entrance. Hey Crease, you
on?
INT. SNEAKER VAN
CREASE
Yeah, I'm on.
MOTHER
Were you still in CIA in '72?
CREASE
Yep, why?
MOTHER
Did you know the deputy director of
planning was down in Managua,
Nicaragua the day before the
earthquake?6.
CREASE
(annoyed)
Now what are you saying, the CIA
caused the Managua earthquake?
MOTHER
Well, I can't prove it... but...
Crease hangs up his mic.
CREASE
I can't talk to that guy.
Tones continue to sound.
WHISTLER
Hold on, Mother, go back one.
A tone we just heard sounds again.
WHISTLER
Bingo!
EXT. MANHOLE
MOTHER
Securing bridge clips.
Mother attaches the clips.
MOTHER
Preparing to sever master alarm
circuit. Five... four...
INT. SECURITY STATION
A lone security guard is watching television. A security
panel in the distance briefly flashes a red light, which the
guard barely notices before it's "green" again. He goes on
watching television.
EXT. STREET NIGHT
Bishop and Crease leave the van and run across the street.
The building is a large bank. They reach the fire escape
where Carl is stationed.
CREASE
Nice bank.
BISHOP
You wouldn't believe what I had to
go through just to get a safe deposit
box.7.
INT. SAFE DEPOSIT BOX VAULT
The camera pans across dozens of boxes. There is a loud,
ominous ticking. Box 589 begins smoking.
INT. SECURITY STATION
An alarm sounds. The security guard is startled and knocks
the TV off the counter.
INT. FIRE ESCAPE DOOR
Carl, Bishop, and Crease enter the building through the fire
escape.
INT. SECURITY STATION
The security guard frantically searches through a procedure
manual.
INT. BANK FLOOR
The three run down through the main customer lobby of the
bank. Bishop falls trying to jump the counter. Crease helps
him up.
BISHOP
Oh shit! We're getting too old for
this.
INT. SECURITY STATION
The security guard gets on the phone.
SECURITY CHIEF
(on phone)
Lifeguard Security.
SECURITY GUARD
Yeah, I got a fire at Centurion Bank!
SECURITY CHIEF
Yeah, we've got the alarm. Are there
any secondary indications? Smoke,
or flame?
The security guard looks around.
SECURITY GUARD
Sm... uh, no.
SECURITY CHIEF
Probably a false alarm. We've been
getting them in your area all night.
See if it resets.8.
SECURITY GUARD
Oh man, I don't know.
INT. BANK ELECTRICAL ROOM
The three reach a small room and start looking behind panels.
They come to one with a lot of wires behind it.
BISHOP
You're sure you know which one to
cut?
CARL
Yes! The alarm's always the green
one.
He cuts a wire. All the lights go out.
BISHOP
Good, Carl.
INT. SECURITY STATION
SECURITY GUARD
Hey, man, I'm not waiting any longer,
I'm calling the fire...
The alarm abruptly stops.
SECURITY GUARD
Oh. It uh... stopped. Sorry.
SECURITY CHIEF
Hey, no problem. And, uh, son...
SECURITY GUARD
Sir?
INT. SNEAKER VAN
The "Security Chief" is actually Whistler, back in the van!
WHISTLER
Good work.
SECURITY GUARD
Thank you, Sir.
Whistler gets back on the radio.
WHISTLER
All yours, Bish.
Crease is now hacking at a bank terminal. Bishop looks on.9.
CREASE
So. How much do you want?
INT. BANK DAY
A teller carefully places ten thousand dollar wads of money
in a briefcase.
TELLER
Eighty thousand. Ninety thousand.
One hundred thousand.
BISHOP
Okay!
TELLER
May I ask why you're closing your
account with us today, sir?
BISHOP
Well, I just had this weird feeling
that my money wasn't safe here
anymore.
Bishop walks off, past a security guard and up the stairs
and into a boardroom overlooking the bank floor. Several
executives are waiting for him. He puts the briefcase down
on the table and starts dramatically slapping ten thousand
dollar wads of money down in front of them.
BISHOP
Gentlemen, your communication lines
are vulnerable, your fire exits need
to be monitored, your rent a cops
are a tad undertrained. Outside of
that everything seems to be just
fine. You'll be getting our full
report and analysis in a few days
but first, who's got my cheque?
A FEW MINUTES LATER.
A cheque is carefully typed out.
SECRETARY
So, people hire you to break into
their places to make sure no one can
break into their places?
BISHOP
It's a living.
SECRETARY
Not a very good one.
