Quotes

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: [delivering books to Stroud's cell in D-Block] How's the old Birdman?

Robert Stroud: Breaking even. The way I figure it, it's better than breaking out.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Thought you might've changed your mind.

Robert Stroud: It ain't gonna work, Bernie.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: It'll work. It's *got* to.

Robert Stroud: "Got to" won't get you outta here.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: It's all planned out.

Robert Stroud: Yeah. Sure it is. Now, if you could only walk on water.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: We're taking over the boat.

Robert Stroud: I wish you luck.

Officer Bill Miller: [dayshift guards are arriving for work] Hey-hey! Cece! How was the vacation?

Officer Corwin: Great. Took in Yosemite.

[they start walking up the hill to the main cellhouse]

Officer Corwin: I think this hill got steeper while I was gone.

Officer Bill Miller: Have you ever thought about living on the island?

Officer Corwin: No. Cathy won't consider it. It's too close to the cons, she says.

Dan Durando: [responding to Coy's promise of no blood being spilled during the break] But the trouble is, you got Cretzer and Crazy Sam.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Dutch knows the ropes. He's made a couple of breaks before. And he ain't leaving without Sam.

Dan Durando: Well, what about Thompson? I never know what he's thinking or what he's gonna do.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Who does? But he wants out bad, just like us. He ain't gonna give us any trouble.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Is the car all set?

Joseph 'Dutch' Cretzer: It's waiting for us right *now* in 'Frisco. There are clothes there. There's a hideout. It's the way I operate: connections. That's the trouble with you and Hubbard! Depression bums! You never made connections! How much time have we got?

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: The prison boat docks here at two. We've got forty minutes to make it.

Joseph 'Dutch' Cretzer: Well we'd *better* make it. You know what I'm saying to you, Bernie? We'd just *better* make it.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: [comes out of a cell, back to the desk by the messhall entrance, carrying the bag with his bar spreader] I've got it.

Joseph 'Dutch' Cretzer: This had better work!

Marvin Hubbard: It'll work.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: [to Durando] Keep an on Miller, kid.

[Durando runs off to the cell where Miller is being held]

Miran 'Buddy' Thompson: Hey! What's the chances they'll have some hacks in that other gun gallery down there?

[indicates East Gun Gallery]

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Not 'till after four o'clock. You and Cretzer go on down and keep an eye on the sallyport door for any screws coming through.

Joseph 'Dutch' Cretzer: I'll take care of any screws! You just get Burch!

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: It's moving up towards noon, kid.

Dan Durando: Bernie, I... I think I'm gonna pass on this. I'm only nineteen. I can get out someday.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Don't kid yourself. You're gonna end up just like The Birdman. We need you kid. We need you.

Dan Durando: I just don't want any more blood; any more killing. Bernie, that guy I shot... I swear to God it was an accident, but he's dead just the same.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: You got my promise. We go out clean.

Dan Durando: Don't worry, Mister Lageson. It's gonna be ok.

Officer Lageson: [shaking his head sadly] I never would've expected *you* to be in a fool thing like *this*, kid.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Stroud! We got it! We're going! Straight through the yard, down to the boat!

Robert Stroud: Now, how the hell do you do that?

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Hostages. Four guards. You can still come, you know. What do you say?

Robert Stroud: I was dumb enough to get into this joint, Bernie. I ain't crazy enough to try and break out.

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: Well, we're going.

Robert Stroud: Where, Bernie? That's the problem. Where? Do you think it's worth it?

Bernard 'Bernie' Paul Coy: I tell you the God's truth. If I have to wake up *one* more morning in a cement cage, nine by six, not even knowing if it's daylight outside... You'd better believe it's worth it.

Robert Stroud: It's like I told you Bernie... Good luck.

Associate Warden: We just got a report, sir! They've spotted Dutch Cretzer with a gun!

Warden James Johnston: Cretzer? My god, he'd kill his own mother to get out of here!

Warden James Johnston: How many guards do we have on the cellhouse floor? Right now?

Associate Warden: Nine, plus Burch in the Gun Gallery. We haven't heard from *any* of them.
