Ocean's Eleven (2001)
Reuben: You guys are pros. The best. I'm sure you can make it out of the casino. Of course, lest we forget, once you're out the front door, you're still in the middle of the fucking desert!

Danny: It's never been tried.
Reuben: Ho, ho... "It's never been tried." It's been tried. A few guys even came close. You know the three most successful robberies in the history of Vegas?
[flashback - the gaming room at the Horseshow, in black-and-white]
Reuben: [voiceover] Number three, the Bronze Medal - pencil-neck grabs a lockbox at the Horseshoe...
[a man grabs a lockbox out of a guard's hand and runs for the door, and six guards instantly tackle him to the floor]
Reuben: He got two steps closer to the door than any living soul before him.
[cut to the present]
Reuben: Second most successful robbery...
[flashback - the gaming room at the Flamingo, in grainy color. A long-haired man is running for the door, clutching a bag]
Reuben: The Flamingo in '71. This guy actually tasted fresh oxygen before they grabbed him.
[the man gets within a few feet of the door, before a guard smashes him across the face with a nightstick]
Reuben: Of course, he was breathing out of a hose for the next three weeks. Goddamn hippy.
[back to the present]
Reuben: And the *closest* any man has ever come to robbing a Las Vegas casino...
[flashback - outside Caesar's Palace, in color. A man runs out, hunched over an armful of cash, followed by three security guards]
Reuben: Was outside of Caesar's in '87. He came, he grabbed...
[the three guards shoot the thief in the back]
Reuben: They conquered.

Reuben: Look, we all go way back and uh, I owe you from the thing with the guy in the place and I'll never forget it.
Danny: That was our pleasure.
Rusty: I'd never been to Belize.

Reuben: If you're gonna steal from Terry Benedict, you'd better goddamn KNOW. This sorta thing used to be civilized, you'd hit a guy, he'd whack you, done. But with Benedict... at the end of this, he'd BETTER not know you're involved, not know your names or think you're dead because he'll kill ya, and then he'll go to work on ya.
Danny: That's why we're going to be very careful. Very precise
Rusty: Yeah, well-funded.
Reuben: Yeah. Ya gotta be NUTS, too. And you're gonna need a crew as NUTS as you are!
[pause]
Reuben: So who've you got in mind?

Basher: That poxy demo crew haven't used a coaxial feed to batten the main line, have they? Instead they've gone and nosed up the backup grid, nosed it right up!
Reuben: [to Livingston] Do you understand any of this?
Livingston: I'll explain later.

Reuben: I know more about casino security than any man alive, I invented it, and it cannot be beaten. They got cameras, they got locks, they got watchers, they got timers, they got vaults, they got enough armed personnel to occupy Paris!
[pause]
Reuben: Okay, bad example.

[describing Terry Benedict]
Reuben: He'll kill you, then he'll go to work on you.

Reuben: You're Bobby Caldwell's kid. From Chicago. It's nice there, do you like it?
Linus: Yeah.
Reuben: That's wonderful. Get in the goddamn house.

Rusty: 'Wonder what Rueben'll say.
Reuben: [Cut to Rueben] YOU'RE OUTTA YOUR GODDAMN MINDS!

Reuben: What? Did you guys get a group rate or something?

Reuben: Where are they?
Saul: They will be here.
Reuben: [mimicking Saul's voice] They will be here. Schmuck.


Ocean's Twelve (2004)
Reuben Tishkoff: [to a fortune teller. As he is having his palm read by her, he turns around to see Terry Benedict with two enforcers] This? You couldn't see *this*?

Reuben Tishkoff: [banging on the bathroom door] Frank come on let me in.
Turk Malloy: How do you think it feels when you're sitting down on the toilet and someone's banging on the door?
Reuben Tishkoff: Well, I gotta sit down on the toilet or else I'm gonna shit on your feet.

Linus Caldwell: [Linus is trying to convince everyone that Danny was actually the leader of "The Benedict Job"] Well, if any of you had a problem, who did you go to?
Basher Tarr, Turk Malloy, Virgil Malloy, Reuben Tishkoff, Livingston Dell, Yen, Frank Catton: [simultaneously] Rusty.
Danny Ocean: Thanks, Linus.

Reuben Tishkoff: [after Linus complains about the freak] Are you hosting a telethon we don't know about?

Rusty Ryan: Anybody remember that scene in Miller's Crossing when John Turturro begs for his life?
Reuben Tishkoff: Sure, "Look into your heart."
[pause]
Reuben Tishkoff: I cry every time.
Danny Ocean: What?
Rusty Ryan: We have no line of sight.

Reuben Tishkoff: Terry, I can't predict the future. I pay professionals to do that, and even they get it wrong sometimes.

[last lines]
Reuben Tishkoff: If, God forbid, anything does happen to you, we will not be involved.
Terry Benedict: You better not be, Reuben. You better not be.

Danny Ocean: So how much do we all owe, each?
Reuben Tishkoff: $17.34 million. Assuming Benedict gives us Prime Plus One, which I doubt. Figure 19 to be safe.

Danny Ocean: How much is everyone short?
Turk Malloy: 14.
Virgil Malloy: You're kidding me! You spent all but 5 million?
Turk Malloy: Yes! Are you going to start on me with that too? You don't know what it's like starting something from scratch!
Virgil Malloy: Well, with interest, I'm short 7.
Frank Catton: Eight.
Linus Caldwell: Well, I spent a million on talent development, so I guess that leaves me at 7. Boy, that interest just kills you, man!
Basher Tarr: I'm light 9.
Livingston Dell: What's the interest?
Reuben Tishkoff: 6.
Livingston Dell: Then I owe 6.
Turk Malloy: What?
Livingston Dell: I've been living with my parents.
Rusty Ryan: I owe 25.
[everyone looks at him, he chuckles wryly]
Rusty Ryan: Hotels, man.

Reuben Tishkoff: I can handle Saul's share.
Danny Ocean: You don't have to do that.
Reuben Tishkoff: Who would I talk to if you're all dead?
Danny Ocean: That's a good point. Alright, I owe 10. Amazing?
Yen: [speaks in Mandarin]
Rusty Ryan: [chuckles] Yeah, but it's a nice place.
Livingston Dell: So that comes to?
Reuben Tishkoff: 97, give or take.
Rusty Ryan: He didn't find us on his own. Someone helped him.
Reuben Tishkoff: Another thief.
Linus Caldwell: Well, there's no-one we'd know that would violate rule number one.
Danny Ocean: What we do know is we need a job. We need a high paying job.
Linus Caldwell: Well, now we're too hot to be working anywhere in this country.
Danny Ocean: So we go abroad. How 'bout we go to...
Rusty Ryan: [cuts in] We're on the 5:00.
Danny Ocean: Good. We're we going?
Rusty Ryan: Amsterdam.
Danny Ocean: Amsterdam, it is. Clock's running guys. Let's go.
Linus Caldwell: I've never been to Amsterdam.
Turk Malloy: I hear German girls are really hot.


Ocean's Thirteen (2007)
Reuben Tishkoff: You're going to throw me off the roof now?
Willy Bank: I don't want to.

Reuben Tishkoff: We'll talk about it when I'm dead.

Reuben Tishkoff: [seeing the poker chip Willy just tossed to him] You changed the name?
Willy Bank: [walking away] I like it better! Don't you?

Reuben Tishkoff: [to Bank about being double-crossed] There's a code amongst guys who shook Sinatra's hand!

Reuben Tishkoff: The moment you become embarrassed of who you are, you lose yourself. I changed my house, the way I dressed, the way I ate - for what? For nothing.


Ocean's Eleven (1960)
Jimmy Foster: [speaking on the 'phone] Speaking of finances. Could you let me have some more.
Mrs. Restes: More? More what?
Jimmy Foster: Money. M-O-N-Y.
Sam Harmon: "E"
Jimmy Foster: M-O-N-*E*-Y

Sam Harmon: The odds are always with the house,
[slams hand on pool table]
Sam Harmon: with the house!
