After a simple jewelry heist goes terribly wrong, the surviving criminals begin to suspect that one of them is a police informant.

Hey, why am I Mr. Pink?
Mr. Pink
Because you’re a faggot, alright?
Joe
Why can’t we pick our own colors?
Mr. Pink
No way, no way. Tried it once, it doesn’t work. You get four guys all fighting over who’s gonna be Mr. Black, but they don’t know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You’re Mr. Pink. Be thankful you’re not Mr. Yellow.
Joe
Yeah, but Mr. Brown, that’s a little too close to Mr. Shit.
Mr. Brown
Mr. Pink sounds like Mr. Pussy. How ’bout if I’m Mr. Purple? That sounds good to me. I’ll be Mr. Purple.
Mr. Pink
You’re not Mr. Purple. Some guy on some other job is Mr. Purple. Your Mr. PINK.
Joe
Who cares what your name is?
Mr. White
Yeah, that’s easy for your to say, you’re Mr. White. You have a cool-sounding name. Alright look, if it’s no big deal to be Mr. Pink, do you wanna trade?
Mr. Pink
Hey! NOBODY’S trading with ANYBODY. This ain’t a goddamn, fucking city council meeting, you know? Now listen up, Mr. Pink. There’s two ways you can go on this job: my way or the highway. Now what’s it gonna be, Mr. Pink?
Joe
Jesus Christ, Joe, fucking forget about it. It’s beneath me. I’m Mr. Pink. Let’s move on.
Mr. Pink
I’ll move on when I feel like it… All you guys got the goddamn message?… I’m so goddamn mad, hollering at you guys I can hardly talk. Pssh. Let’s go to work.
Joe

C’mon, throw in a buck!
Nice Guy Eddie
Uh-uh, I don’t tip.
Mr. Pink
You don’t tip?
Nice Guy Eddie
Nah, I don’t believe in it.
Mr. Pink
You don’t believe in tipping?
Nice Guy Eddie
You know what these chicks make? They make shit.
Mr. Blue
Don’t give me that. She don’t make enough money that she can quit.
Mr. Pink
I don’t even know a fucking Jew who’d have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don’t ever tip?
Nice Guy Eddie
I don’t tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I’ll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it’s for the birds. As far as I’m concerned, they’re just doing their job.
Mr. Pink
Hey, our girl was nice.
Mr. Blue
She was okay. She wasn’t anything special.
Mr. Pink
What’s special? Take you in the back and suck your dick?
Mr. Blue
I’d go over twelve percent for that.
Nice Guy Eddie

Hey Joe, you want me to shoot this guy?
Mr. Blonde
[laughs] Shit… You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.
Mr. White

You kill anybody?
Mr. Pink
A few cops.
Mr. White
No real people?
Mr. Pink
Just cops.
Mr. White

Listen kid, I’m not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don’t give a good fuck what you know, or don’t know, but I’m gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It’s amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want cause I’ve heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you ain’t gonna get.
Mr. Blonde
[He removes his razor]
You ever listen to K-Billy’s “Super Sounds of the Seventies” weekend? It’s my personal favorite.
Mr. Blonde

Eddie, you keep talking like a bitch, I’m gonna slap you like a bitch.
– Mr. Blonde

I don’t wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you’re standing in my way, one way or the other, you’re gettin’ outta my way.
– Mr. Pink

Relax. Have a cigarette.
Mr. White
I quit.
Mr. Pink
[pause] Alright.
Mr. White
Why, you got one?
Mr. Pink

If you shoot this man, you die next. Repeat. If you shoot this man, you die next.
– Mr. White

Hey, who didn’t throw in?
Joe
Mr. Pink.
Mr. Orange
Mr. Pink? Why not?
Joe
He don’t tip.
Mr. Orange
He don’t tip? Whaddaya mean you don’t tip?
Joe
He don’t believe in it.
Mr. Orange
Shut up!
Joe

I can say I definitely didn’t do it because I know what I did or didn’t do. But I cannot definitely say that about anybody else, ’cause I don’t definitely know.
– Mr. Pink

We got places all over the place.
– Nice Guy Eddie

Alright, first things fuckin’ last!
Nice Guy Eddie
