friday movie quote

“Buildings is like people, I mean they got stories and they got secrets to tell you. All you gotta do is look. Some buildings got smart faces, you know what I mean? I mean they’re alert, and they’re staring right back at you and they’re saying, ‘I dare you to come in and grab me.’ And then there’s other buildings that are dumb, like the Brink’s. When I was a kid I thought to myself if I had to work in a place like that I’d cut my throat. Them people are bored. They’re dead, they don’t know it yet. They got all that dough in there, and they treat it like it was garbage. They got no feeling for their work. That building is asleep, and all that money is in there and it’s being held prisoner. And it’s screaming at me through the walls, it’s yelling, ‘Hey, Tony, come in and grab me, get me outta here!’ Well I’m going in, and I’m gonna get it out!”

-Tony Pino (Peter Falk), The Brink’s Job (1978)

    Excellent “two-fer” with this quote…
    Good movie AND a nice tribute to Peter Falk.

    And damn near ANYthing Paul Sorvino does is great (imho).

    Have a fantastic weekend.

    Roll safe.
