What happened to the old bank? People kept robbing it. That’s a small price to pay for beauty. Give me credit, Mr. You know my rules, Tom. Well, it looks like you just about cleaned everybody out, fella.

You haven’t lost a hand since you got the deal. What’s the secret of your success? Let’s just you and me play. Yeah, you’re a hell of a card player, fella.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: Screenplay by William Goldman

I know, ’cause I’m a hell of a card player, and I can’t even spot how you’re cheating. The money stays, and you go. Well, we seem to be a little sunddance on brotherly love around screneplay. If you’re with him, you better get out of here. We’re on our way.

You can both die. If he invites us to stay, then we’ll go. He’s got to invite us to stick around. He’ll draw on you. You don’t know how fast he is.

I’m over the hill, but it can happen to you. That’s just what I want to hear. Every day you get older. What would you think about maybe asking us to stick around? You don’t have to mean it or anything. Just ask us to stick around. Sundancr can’t help you, Sundance. I didn’t know you were the Sundance Kid when I said you were cheating. I draw on you, you’ll kill me. You’d be killing yourself. Why don’t you just invite us to stick around? You can do it Why don’t you stick around? Thanks, but hutch got to get going.


Hey, Kid, how good are you? Like I been telling you Every time, I ask myself the same question What’s your idea this time? Central or South America. One or the other.

Let’s go screenplsy Mexico instead. All they got in Mexico is sweat. There’s too much of that here. If we’d been in business during the California gold rush, where would we have gone? When I say Bolivia, you just think California.

You wouldn’t believe what they’re finding in the ground down there. They’re just falling into it. Silver mines, gold mines, tin mines. Payrolls so heavy we’d strain ourselves stealing them.

You just keep thinking, Butch. That’s what you’re good at. Boy, I got vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals. Just fixing to rob the Union Pacific Flyer, Butch, like what we had in mind. You fellas got everything I told you all wrong. Sure, we might hit the Flyer, but even if we do, it won’t be this run. It’ll be the next one, the return. Sundance and me, we been checking the banks.

Fellas, bad as they are, banks are better than trains.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: Screenplay

You know the money’s in there. When I left, I gave orders.

New orders been given. I run things here, Harvey. Used to you did. This don’t concern you. You tell him to stay out. Well, he goes his own way, like always. What’s the matter with you guys?


Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid () Movie Script | SS

When I came here, you were nothing. Read them a clipping, News. This one here’s from Salt Lake Herald. You want Harvey to do your planning?

Want him to do your thinking for you? You want him to run things? Shut up now, News. Not till I get to the good part.

I just love to read my name in the paper, Butch. So we just forget about Logan taking over, O. You always said that any one of us could challenge you. You guys can’t want Logan!

At least he’s with us. You been spending a lot of time gone. Well, that’s because everything’s different now.

Guns or knives, Butch? You got to plan more, prepare more. I don’t want to shoot with you, Harvey. Anything you say, Butch. Maybe there’s a way to make a profit in this. I would, but who’d bet on you?

I don’t mean to be a sore loser, but when it’s done, if I’m dead, kill him. Not until me and Harvey get the rules straightened out. Rules in a knife fight? If there ain’t any rules, let’s get started. Someone count 1, 2, 3, go. I was really rooting for you, Butch.

Aundance, thank you, Flat Nose. That’s what sustained me in my time of trouble. Hey, what’s this about the Flyer? Harvey said we’d hit it both this run and the return. Nobody’s done that to the Flyer before.
