The Dark Knight (2008)
[Lau announces that he's removed all the mob's cash from their banks before the police raid, and stashed them in a secure location]
Lau: For obvious reasons, I couldn't wait for your permission. Rest assured, your money is safe.
[From outside comes the sound of loud, fake laughter. The mob bosses turn and see the Joker enter]
The Joker: And I thought my jokes were bad.

Lucius Fox: No, I really came to tell you that our business deal has to be put on hold. You see, we can't afford to be seen to do business with whatever it is you're accused of being. I'm sure a businessman of your stature will understand.
Lau: I think, Mr. Fox, a simple phone call might have sufficed.
Lucius Fox: Mr. Wayne didn't want you to think that he was deliberately wasting your time.
Lau: Just accidentally wasting it.
Lucius Fox: That's very good, Mr. Lau. Accidentally. Very good.

Lau: [During a video conference with the gangsters] As you're all aware, one of our deposits were stolen. It was a relatively small amount: sixty million dollars.
The Chechen: Who's stupid enough to steal from us?
Salvatore Maroni: Some two-bit whack job. Wears a cheap purple suit and makeup. He's not the problem. The problem is our money being tracked by the cops.
Lau: Thanks to Mr. Maroni's well-placed sources, we know the police have indeed identified our banks using marked bills and are planning to seize your funds today. And since the enthusiastic new DA has put all my competitors out of business, I'm your only option.
The Chechen: What do you propose?
Lau: Moving all secure deposits to one location, not a bank.
Gambol: Where then?
Lau: No one can know but me. If the police were to gain leverage over one of you, then everyone's money would be at stake.
The Chechen: What will stop them from getting to you?
Lau: I'll go to Hong Kong, far from Dent's jurisdiction, and the Chinese will not extradite one of their own.
Salvatore Maroni: How soon can you move the money?
Lau: I already have.
