Armored Car

1 - Some people stand in the darkness afraid to step into the light some people need to help somebody when the edge of surrender's in sight don't you worry it's gonna be all right 'cause I'm always ready I won't let you out of my sight I'll be ready I'll be ready never you fear no, don't you fear I'll be ready forever and always I'm always here 'Cause I'm always ready I won't let you out of my sight I'll be ready I'll be ready never you fear no, don't you fear I'll be ready forever and always I'm always here Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like you do something for me right now.
Imagine the beach without the pier.
Without the hot dogs, skee ball, and merry-go-round.
My family, like the rest of the merchants here, have been working on this pier since it opened in 1939.
You're standing on 50 years of hard work and fond memories.
-Not to mention corroded planks and battered pilings.
But if we don't raise another $50,000 dollars before midnight Sunday, those construction workers will all lay down their hammers-- -you don't think it's worth saving? -I don't care one way or the other.
I get paid no matter what, but I'd rather it goes 'cause of my wrecking ball, and not some whacko stunt with an armored car.
-I take it you're not a fan.
-I wouldn't park a 20,000-pound armored car here.
-We've raised 100,000 dollars so far, which you can see all weekend in the armored car.
-I got one of my guys under the pier.
He's checking things out right now.
-Including the five bucks you pay to have your picture taken with the money.
So reach deep in your pockets and help out an old friend, the beachfront pier.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Appreciate it.
-This is going to be a terrific picture.
I look great surrounded by money.
-Don't we all? -I don't get it, Mitch.
People have been lining up all day.
-Everyone loves the pier.
Besides, how often do you get this close to a hundred grand? I'm lucky to get next to two tens.
There's your answer.
Besides, it helps the pier.
-Yeah, it does help.
Yes, it helps the pier.
That's my son.
Lucky boy.
It's the chance of a lifetime, ladies and gentlemen.
Yeah, dad, I look great.
I have to add this to my collection.
-Collection? -Oh, yeah, he's got pictures with everybody.
President Reagan, Jimmy and Tammy baker.
-Dalai Lama, alf.
-Hey, what are you doing? -I got a man down there.
You got a better idea? -Just take it easy.
-Baywatch, this is garner.
Beachfront pier.
We got a worker in the water.
Requesting lifeguard backup.
See you, beach.
Mixed, doubles.
I know you were a pro once.
Sure, you're a little out of practice now, but I can carry us.
10,000 bucks for the winners.
-I'm retired.
I only play for fun.
-Hey, what could be more fun than winning money? No.
What could be more fun than trashing your old partner? Chris barron is favored to win.
But they haven't seen us yet, have they? -Yeah, yeah, I'm coming, I'm coming.
-I woke you up, didn't I? -Oh, it's okay, I gotta get up in three hours anyway.
-Great, let's go for a run.
-Jill, it's four o'clock in the morning.
-I know.
We got time to make it to topanga and back before morning workout.
I saw the posters.
Chris is back.
He's such a-- -I'll get the coffee started.
We were a team.
-You sure were.
Hottest volleyball doubles on the circuit.
-He had an affair, Mitch.
Did I tell you about that? -Oh, yes.
-Such a worm.
I wonder if he has the guts to face me now after all this time.
-What about you? You got the guts to face him? -I've been rehearsing the moment just in case.
Want to see it? -Sure.
-Pretend like you're Chris.
Ow! That's perfect.
That's right to the point.
Maybe the coffee's ready now.
I'm sorry, Mitch, I gotta go.
I've got a lot of tension I gotta work off.
-Oh, okay.
-Thanks for the visit.
You haven't changed.
Let me guess your next line.
"You're still as beautiful as ever.
" -Look, Jill, I didn't come here to ruin your day.
It's just that I haven't been back here since we split up.
And now that I'm here, all I can think about is us.
There were good times, Jill.
Lots of them.
You really hurt me.
-Yeah, well, there was plenty of hurt to go around.
-Yeah, well, I guess I wasn't perfect, either.
-You were close enough for me.
-I've missed you.
-I knew you'd come back someday.
With those brown eyes, those smooth lines, and a bunch of "I'm-sorry"s and "let me make it up"s.
-Maybe next weekend.
-It's a time-share.
Somebody else is in there next weekend.
Since when have you had a crowded social schedule? -I'm going to Catalina.
Well, I can live with Catalina.
Do a little snorkeling-- -uh, Shauni.
Sorry, it's guys only.
You know how it is.
-You're joking.
So it's more important to you to spend a weekend with the guys than a romantic weekend with me.
I never said it was more important.
But you don't wanna be with me.
-You don't? Butt out.
Shauni, look, this has nothing to do with my not wanting to be with you.
-Then what does it have to do with? -It has to do with guys.
Sometimes guys just gotta be guys.
It's a tribal thing.
Does the phrase "insensitive slug" mean anything to you? -Hey.
-Shauni, I'm free.
-Shut up.
Listen, Shauni, listen.
You make too big a deal out of this, really.
It's a simple weekend.
A little male bonding.
Drink a little beer, talk about important issues, like hoop shots and three point plays.
Sure beats spending time with me, huh? -Come on, Shauni, we're not talking a month.
We're talking a weekend.
Two short days, 26 miles away.
Come on, we'll have plenty of weekends together, just not this one, all right? It's nice to know where I stand on your list of priorities.
Right smack at the bottom.
-Shauni, come-- hey, my towel.
Shauni, come on.
-Finally learned how to handle women, huh? This is a worthy cause.
Just five dollars.
Help save the pier.
Come get your pictures.
Have your picture taken with all that money.
How's the man who fell? -Still in intensive care, unconscious.
-Is that why you look so worried? -Listen to this wood.
It's creaking and groaning.
I feel like I'm standing on toothpicks.
-It's part of the charm.
Let's you know you got an ocean under your feet.
Biddle, this wood is old.
-So am I.
-I've worked on this pier every day of my life.
The floor has never given way under me once.
In fact, I find the sounds rather soothing.
My accent was bad, but I got us a free room.
Uh, so, uh Are you, uh, happy that you came out with me tonight or not? -As much as I'd like to be angry, I am glad I came.
-Me too.
You know what I miss? The team work.
The synchronicity.
Reading the way you moved your body.
The way you looked at me.
The way you knew how I felt before I did.
Not just in the game.
-Yeah, we were a terrific team.
Well, we should have played that tournament five years ago.
We would've aced it.
Then we could've traveled the circuit and try out all our other rotten accents.
Well, that moment's gone.
-It doesn't to be.
We can make that happen.
We can be a team again.
Next weekend we can be a team again.
-What are you saying? -Five years ago you weren't ready.
But you're older now, you're wiser now.
We can win that tournament together.
-All this talk about making it right and being together is your way of luring me onto the volleyball court.
-No, it's just the perfect opportunity.
My partner dropped out at the last minute-- -you're incredible.
Hey, Jill.
I'm doing this for you.
Look, we didn't make it before because you couldn't handle it.
I'm just giving you another shot.
-You were sleeping with another woman, that's why we broke up.
-That's your version.
I found someone else because you flaked out.
-Well, that's great.
You had an affair, and I flaked out? -Missing practice, screwing up on the court.
You didn't have the guts to take it all the way.
-That's not true.
-You choked.
-Sign this.
-The entry form for the tournament? -I know what it is.
Just sign it.
-I thought you'd see things my way.
-Look, I'm never gonna see things your way.
Just sign it, okay? I have my own reasons.
-Yeah, 5,000, I bet.
We are splitting the kitty 50-50.
-Not if I do 70% of the work.
-This is no goofing around in the sand.
This is a professional tournament.
-Hey, I am a volleyball demon.
-You're a rank amateur.
It's gonna take a miracle to make you pro stock.
What are you waiting for? The tournament's this weekend.
Let's go.
It's a lot of money, folks.
Get your picture taken in front of the armor car-- -Again.
-I'm not doing it again.
My hands are numb, my arms are numb, my body is numb.
-Live with it.
-Thanks for the sympathy, coach.
Heads up.
-Looks like I'm not the only one who's a bit tired, huh? -Yeah, looks like it.
-Okay, so what do you say we stop working on my return and have some fun? -You wanna play for fun or you wanna play to win? It's your call.
-There must be an easier way to make 10,000 bucks.
Come on.
-Night, fellas.
-Good night.
-Good night.
-You working tomorrow.
-Yeah, double shift.
Really? -Don't forget to set your car alarm.
-Worried about the money? -I wouldn't leave my lunch box out here all night, let alone a hundred grand.
-Without the key and the electronic code, the only way someone is getting in there is with a bazooka.
-Have you seen what the kids around here are packing these days? I wouldn't put it past them.
-You got a point.
Not only is this baby sleek and sporty, she's air-tight and virtually impregnable.
Welcome to the 19th annual seal beach pro-am volleyball tournament.
The elimination rounds begin on court two, where Jack Turner and Dorothy copeland will compete against Trevor Cole and Jill Riley -You've been staring at that board for 15 minutes.
-Just figuring the odds.
-Yeah? How do they look? -Not seeded to play Chris until the final round.
One loss, and we're knocked out of the finals.
-Don't worry, champ.
No one's gonna eliminate us.
Let's get him.
I bet you didn't know I'm an expert marksman.
-Yes! Eddie! -What? -This is how we spend our day together? -Well, we're alone.
Just you, me, frogs.
-And the Lakers.
I won! I won.
-All right! Yeah! Hey.
Shauni, where yo-- -there you go.
-Thanks, man.
Hey, Shauni.
Shauni, hey, come on, wait up.
Wait up.
I'm sorry.
-Sorry you didn't have a portable television set or radio, you mean.
-All right.
You have my complete attention.
It won't happen again, I promise.
-It's half-time, isn't it? Well, yes, but what does it have to do with-- what? Shauni! Hey! Here.
Have your picture taken, folks.
Help save the beachfront pier.
Only five dollars.
Come on, ladies and gentleman.
You can have your picture taken with a bunch of money.
-Hey, garner, see Shauni around? -Sorry.
-Come on, honey, show me a big smile.
Show mommy your new teeth.
Come on.
Come on, honey.
Show me a big smile.
Come on.
-Sometimes I'm glad I was an orphan.
Baby! Somebody help my baby! Eddie, no.
My baby.
-Go back, stay back.
Yeah, keep cool.
-Okay, guys, let's get on the back.
-Just a moment.
-Can you come to me, huh? I'm sure you can.
Come on.
You can do it, come on.
All right, just relax.
Everything's gonna be okay.
I'll come and get you, all right? Give us a chance to secure the truck.
-This thing is barely hanging on by splinters.
It's our only chance.
All right, just don't move.
I'm gonna come and get you.
All right? It's gonna be okay.
Don't move, we'll get you out.
All right.
Okay, guys, let's get some weight on the back of that truck.
-Don't move.
Okay, give me your hand.
Come on.
Hold it.
-Come on.
Come on, give me your hand.
Oh, man.
I can't reach her.
Come on, I'll pass her to you.
I got her, I got her.
I'll get you.
There you go, there you go.
Okay, cool.
It's okay.
Come on, come on.
-Use my body.
Reach out.
Come on, baby.
Come on.
You have her? -I got her.
Come on, there you go.
There you go.
There you go.
-There you go.
I have her.
Come on, come on.
We got you, come on.
That's okay, come on.
-Oh, yeah.
Oh, oh.
I'm just arriving, Mitch.
I'm going in, cover me.
I'm on my way.
-Move back, will you? Move back.
Move back, please.
Please, please, come on.
Move back, move back.
Move back, please.
How long has it been down there? Two, maybe three minutes.
The truck is air-tight, maybe.
I'm checking it out.
-Craig! They're out there.
-How are you feeling? Not too bad for a guy with a couple of broken ribs.
You did this just to keep me from the game.
-At least I have you all to myself.
-Craig just went in.
-You see them? -I saw Shauni.
She's okay.
-What about Eddie? -I don't know, I only saw her.
-Craig, is the truck in one piece? -Seems to be.
-That's good news.
It's air-tight.
-It also means we can't get air into it.
Who's got the key? -It's not that simple.
It's a combination of a key and an electronic code.
The system has shorted it out.
The company's got a team of experts on the way.
-We can't wait that long.
Bring the crane around.
Maybe we pull it out.
-Hey, Craig, we got your gear covered.
-It's not gonna get any better, is it? -I'll be all right.
-Jill, look at yourself.
You can't hardly raise your arm.
Don't be stupid.
-Look, I'm not pulling out.
-I don't fancy being humiliated in front of a crowd of people, you know.
We can still win.
-You can't even play.
I have to.
-Give me one good reason.
-Chris? I said a good reason, like a loan shark biting at your heels.
-Look, he thinks I choked, all right? He thinks I quit the team because I couldn't take the pressure.
I want him to know that I quit because I didn't wanna play anymore without him.
You don't understand that, do you? -Sure I do.
You're gonna ruin your shoulder to prove a point.
He's worth it, Jill.
You know what the truth is, and that's that counts, right? Huh? -Yeah, you're right.
I'm gonna go pull us out.
-"Adios," fame and fortune.
Well, at least no one can say that the excitement has gone out of our relationship, huh? Come on, push.
-They're gonna rescue us soon.
They know we're in here.
We'd better be.
-Come on, push.
The mixed doubles final are just about to start on the championship course.
Can I help you? -Uh, Jill Riley.
I knew we'd get this far, I just didn't think it'd be on opposite sides of the net.
-Congratulations to you.
It looks like you've won I'm pulling out.
I've hurt my shoulder pretty bad oh, I guess things haven't changed, huh? Easiest win of my career.
Thanks, Jill.
I know just where to spend the money.
Give me five.
We just won 10,000 dollars.
Can you believe it? -It took a lot of guts to pull out.
-It doesn't take guts to quit.
Let's do it.
I'll take the serve and pass to you.
-What about that bad shoulder, huh? -Make them-- -you don't even get it over the net, how are you gonna spike it? -Trevor-- -we either win or not.
-Come on.
Time out.
You can scratch the crane.
We can't move it over here in time.
-How much time do we have? -I just got off the phone with the armored car company.
Their best guess is two hours, tops, then the air runs out.
-Then let's cut into the damn thing.
-No chance.
We're talking about an armored car remember? That's what they're designed against.
Maybe we're could float it out.
-With what? -Inflatable boats.
The diver shop on the pier would have this.
Strap them to the truck, inflate them, and bring her to the surface.
-We need a compressor and a line surrounding to the water.
We don't have either of them.
-We'll improvise.
We'll use scuba tanks.
-It could work.
-It has to.
-Get some ropes and start running them under the truck.
-You got it.
-I'd conserve your energy if I were you.
I think you're gonna need it.
-Shut up, Eddie.
-What are you snapping at me for? -We're trapped in an armored car underwater, and in case you haven't noticed, the water is rising.
It's kind of romantic.
-What? Think about it.
We're alone, wet, swimming in money.
You're pinned up against the wall by a safe.
I never said it was perfect.
I'm scared, Eddie.
-Compared to going to the dentist, this is a piece of cake.
-I love you so much.
-Sorry about that, mate.
I thought you were hiding for me.
-I was, not anymore.
Didn't I tell you to look for the block? -It's pretty hard to see with a volleyball implanted in your face.
-You take the set, I'll take the serves.
-You're crazy? You wanna lose? -We're already losing.
-You can't spike with that arm.
-There's more to volleyball than power, Trevor.
-We can't do any worse.
-Something wrong, dear? We could have the official stop the game.
-I'm fine.
-If you say so.
Gee, that must hurt bad.
You holding up all right? Yeah, I'll be all right.
All right, go, go! Get out there.
Move it! Move it, move it! Hit the water.
Come on, let's go.
Hey, did I ever tell you about three big nightmares I used to have when I was a kid? -This is not the time, Eddie.
-Oh, no, that's great, really.
One was two walls with spikes on them closing in on me until I was crushed between them.
-This isn't helping.
-Hey, honey, no, no.
In another one, I'm pushed out of a tall building, and all I see is the sidewalk rushing up on me and it splat.
Diving in clear water, right? That's with beautiful colorful fish around me.
Then my foot gets stuck in some rocks.
-Can you believe it? Don't try to talk, Eddie.
-Wake--wake me up, will you? -I'm not gonna let you drown, Eddie.
I'm not.
Hold on, Eddie.
-Hey! Breathe.
Breathe, Eddie.
The truck's breaking the surface of the water now.
Go ahead.
Bring it in nice and easy.
It's not over yet.
Right here.
Okay, here we go.
Come on, guys, come on.
Move it.
Let's help bring it out.
Pull, pull.
Pull, pull.
Truck is on the beach.
Now returning to bay.
-Hey, they're coming.
Over here.
Come on, come on, come on.
Move it.
All right, lock it down.
You guys are ready? Ready? We're set.
All right, hit it.
Get them to shore.
Air obstruction.
Okay Let's forget about the Catalina weekend, huh? -Yes! There's no stopping us now.
The deauville invitational, the Nassau grand pro-am.
We can go back to Sydney on this.
You're on your own, Trevor.
I just went into retirement So you like to travel?
