Jack Stanfield

  • Change of plans, asshole: You get the money when I get my family!


Jack Stanfield: Nice flowers.
Janet Stone: Born-again Bobby.
Jack Stanfield: Maybe he's trying to save your soul.
Janet Stone: He'd need bigger blossoms than that.

Jack Stanfield: [Jack arrives home] Where are they?
Bill Cox: Through here.
Jack Stanfield: [Jack sees family tied up] Jesus. What is this?
Andy Stanfield: Daddy!
Jack Stanfield: Why have you done this for god's sake? [removes tape from their mouths] They're children.
Bill Cox: [Referring to why the family has tape over their mouths] I said if they were trouble. Were they trouble?
Vel: They were noisy.
Willy: Yes. We made an executive decision.
Bill Cox: You are a criminal, Willy, not an executive.
Willy: Yeah, but I thought you said if...
Bill Cox: Shut up, Willy.
Andy Stanfield: Daddy.
Jack Stanfield: I wanna know what you want. And I wanna know now.
Bill Cox: Beth, I am sorry about all of this. I... I am, but well, there we are. Uh. I need you to talk to your husband. He listens to you. I need you to make him understand that if he doesn't do exactly as I ask, I will kill you and your two children. But if you can make him listen Beth, if you can make him do what I want, you'll all walk away from this unpleasantness, unscathed. Not because I'm a nice man, simply because there'll be no reason for me to hurt you. Make sense? Can I rely on your cooperation?
Jack Stanfield: Just tell him yes.
Beth Stanfield: Yes.
Bill Cox: Sarah?
Sarah Stanfield: Fine.
Bill Cox: And you big fella?
Andy Stanfield: Maybe.
Beth Stanfield: [warningly] Andy.
Bill Cox: No, it's all right. It's honest.

[the morning after the kidnappers have taken over]
Beth: You have to do whatever they want. I don't care what it is.
Jack: It may not be that easy. We've seen their faces.
Beth: But he said if we just cooperate...
Jack: I know what they said, Beth!

Jack Stanfield: [after Bill forces Jack to fire Janet] Janet, I want you to pack up your stuff and go home.
Janet Stone: What? What do you mean?
Jack Stanfield: Just what I said. Pack up your stuff and go home.
Janet Stone: Why?
Jack Stanfield: You're fired.
Janet Stone: If this is a joke, it's not funny.
Jack Stanfield: No, it's not a joke. Tomorrow, I'll call Human Resources. I'll get you a job with somebody else at the bank. Right now I want you to just do what I said.
Janet Stone: What are you talking about? Is this because of him?
Jack Stanfield: Don't argue with me, Janet!
Janet Stone: But Jack, I haven't done anything wrong.
Jack Stanfield: Pack up your shit and get out of here, now!
Janet Stone: Screw you, Jack!

Vel: So, you're an architect?
Beth Stanfield: Yes.
Vel: And you designed this house?
Beth Stanfield: I did.
Vel: It's nice.
Beth Stanfield: Thanks.
Vel: How old is it?
Beth Stanfield: Seven years.
Vel: How much does a house like this go for?
Beth Stanfield: This is about robbing the bank, isn't it? You're using Jack to help you rob the bank.
Vel: Open a few doors and press a few buttons.
Liam: Just look after the kids, Beth. And Vel, stick to your work.

[after Jack transfers the money]
Jack Stanfield: It's done.
[on the phone with Vel]
Bill Cox: Vel, is the money there? Okay, good.
Jack Stanfield: I've done everything you want. When do I get my family back?
Bill Cox: We have some tidying up to do.

Bill Cox: You designed the software, you find me a way in.
Jack Stanfield: I wouldn't know where to start.

Bill Cox: So, Willy, what happened today? How did Jack manage to handle the pen?
Willy: I'm not exactly sure. I mean everything seemed to be going fine until...
Bill Cox: Willy, I told you to watch him.
Willy: Yeah, I was watching him. Everything seemed to be going cool and all of a sudden...
Bill Cox: Willy, how can I expect Jack to do as he's told if you don't?
Willy: Yeah, I'm sorry. I made a mistake.
Bill Cox: Well, we all make mistakes, Willy. Just not as many as you.
Willy: Hey, I said I was sorry!
Bill Cox: All right... Ok, you're sorry. Watch them. [as Willy turns to watch Jack and Beth, Bill shoots him in the back, killing him] Get out. [as Jack and Beth leave the room, Pim enters] Clean up this mess.
