    • Captain Stanley: (holding a jug and metal tubing) Well this is what was causing all those little explosions. There must be a couple of dozen of them in there. Mr. Willetts: What is it? Captain Stanley: White Lightning. Moonshine. (holds up tubing)And this was a piece of a still. Mr. Willetts: A still? Captain Stanley: Mmm-hmm...(to Hosmer) You know anything about this? Mr. Willetts: Hosmer? Mr. Hosmer: (drunkenly) I no more than turned my back and up it went, blewie Mr. Willetts: You stupid fool. Mr. Hosmer: Why don't you pass the jug around? It's good stuff even if I do say so myself. I bet you boys could use a drink right now.

    • Johnny: No, man, you can't go to Cuba.

      Robber #1: Well, that's where they go when they swipe planes.

      Johnny: Not any more they don't. Man, Cuba's getting heavy on that sort of thing lately. Man, they'd put you out in a cane field. Plus, they'll take your money away.

    Trivia (1)

    • Before the advent of electronic computers, data could be stored and tabulated on paper or metal punch cards. By the mid-70's most large institutions (like Rampart General) had converted over to magnetic tape storage, but punch cards can still be found in use in places like your local voting booth.

    Allusions (1)

    • Johnny suggests to the bank robbers that they ask for a plane and parachute out to make their getaway. He's referring to the notorious case of hijacker D. B. Cooper. In 1971, Cooper extorted $200,000 and parachuted away with the money, never to be heard from again.
