I appreciate that.
Oh, hey, hey.

Yeah they are.
So we can't go anywhere.
Look, I can tell you, but, uh it's gonna cost you.

Look, what do you have to offer? Whatever I have doesn't matter because I'm not paying you because you can't get me out of here.
Okay, look, they think they're so smart and such tough guys.
How crazy would it be to be able to sneak outta here? Bye, creep.
