"As with juggling, the key to life is to keep the procession moving steady and don't look down."
"No it ain’t. Life's all about balance man. Give and take. Shake and bake."
"Shake and bake? Shit dude, you even know what you are talking about?
"Yeah I do. Sure know a lot more than juggling keys or whatever shit you’re spewin."
"Okay smart guy, balance us out of this mess. Cops are streamin in like alewives through the Dead River Dam."
"Looks like it don't it? We're in a world of shit for sure………..And you said it was gonna be an easy score.
“Would have been if you hadn’t brought that freakin cannon… and then actually used it……..Look at her. Jeez what a mess. Right through the eye. You could have just winged her.”
“I told her to stay down on the floor more than once. She shoulda listened…….. she was makin me crazy with all the hysterics, all that blubbering.”
“Well it sure made the rest of them behave. I’ll give you that…………..but through the eye?............Damned cold dude.”
“Dead is dead. Don’t matter how it happens. She’ don’t seem too upset about it.”
“Great. More blue lights coming. How many cops do they need ferchrisakes?……….We ain’t skating this time. “
“Think we should give it up?”
“I dunno man. We’d live longer.”
“Yeah, long enough to stuff a needle in our arm.”
“Maine ain’t got no death penalty.”
“Oh. Well then I guess it’s up to us. Gimme that gun.”
