Behind the scenes insights and the Creator’s Take

Official Synopsis

Jarod impersonates a safecracker to help an ex-con being blackmailed by a thief.


Mr. Lyle and Brigitte learn that Jarod stole fifteen million dollars of the Centre’s funds and donated it to charity.  Lyle concludes that Jarod is much more dangerous than he originally believed.  Meanwhile, Jarod enjoys a banana split at an ice cream shop in Middletown, Delaware.  He overhears a conversation between the shop’s fry cook, Scotty Boyd, and two thugs, Nick Avani and Dewey Martin.  Avani threatens to do Scotty bodily harm unless he helps pull off a robbery.  Fearful that his ten-year-old son, Shawn, will grow up fatherless if he doesn’t cooperate, Scotty reluctantly give in.  Avani explains that a one-arm safecracker, R.H. Cross, with whom he has never worked, will participate in the heist.

Jarod intercepts Cross at a train station and convinces him that the location of the heist has changed to Indianapolis.  He hands Cross paperwork containing the details and sends him on his way.  Moments later, Jarod, impersonating Cross, rendezvous with Avani.

Jarod, Scotty, Avani and Dewey rehearse the robbery using an old warehouse.  Jarod, moved by the bond between Scotty and his little boy, begins experiencing flashbacks.  He recalls giving Sydney a handmade card on Father’s Day.  But Sydney tossed the card on the ground, insisting he was not Jarod’s father.

Meanwhile, Detective Harold Evans begins surveilling the group, photographing them from afar.  He instructs an assistant to put Jarod’s photo on the Police Net, certain someone will come forward looking for him.

Mr. Lyle and the others examine a surveillance photo taken of the real R.H. Cross as he robbed the Centre’s satellite office in Indianapolis of a quarter of a million dollars.  Left behind at the scene was a red notebook containing information about an upcoming rendezvous between Cross and Jarod at a hotel in New York City.  Lyle instructs Brigitte to go to New York and find Cross.

Jarod, Avani and Cross break into a high rise and put their plan in motion.  A security guard arrives earlier than expected, forcing Jarod to crack open the safe in very little time.  As Avani prepares to shoot the unsuspecting guard, Jarod opens the safe.  Avani spins in Jarod’s direction—and sees him holding Scotty’s fake revolver.  Jarod squeezes the trigger, causing a small flame to leap from the gun barrel, triggering the sprinkler system.  The threesome make their getaway in the confusion.  Afterward, Jarod realizes that what they stole was an electronic card key.  Avani reveals that the key opens the Federal Diamond Depository in Willmington, where twenty million dollars worth of uncut stones await.  When Scotty insists he will not participate further, Avani has Dewey kidnap Shawn.

Broots, Sydney and Miss Parker discover Jarod’s photo on the Police Net—and are puzzled as to why he has joined a group of high-tech criminals who target diamonds.  The threesome decide to keep their findings a secret from Lyle and Brigitte.  Parker pays Detective Evans a surprise visit.  She blackmails him into revealing where the thieves will strike next.  Afterward, Miss Parker realizes Lyle had her followed.  She tells Lyle and Brigitte that Evans thinks the group will rob the diamond depository.  Lyle and Brigitte clash with Sydney, Parker and Broots over the proper course of action.  Brigitte decides it is best to allow the robbers inside the facility, and once they’ve pulled off the heist, and are lulled into a false sense of security, they can be easily taken into custody.  Lyle places Broots in charge of handling the depository’s security system.  Later, while examining a photo of the outside of the depository, Jarod spots Parker and the others exiting a town car.

Now aware that the Centre is plotting a trap, Jarod acts accordingly.  Meanwhile, Parker and the others take their places inside the depository’s security room.  At Brigitte’s insistence, Jarod and his team are allowed to break into the depository.  Once inside, Jarod locks Avani inside the vault room.  Avani draws a gun and fires… only to see a small flame pop out of the barrel.  Using a cell phone, Avani reluctantly instructs Dewey to release Shawn.  Jarod then uses his laptop to override Broots’ control of the security system—locking Broots and the others inside the security room while unlocking all of the other doors.  Jarod and Scotty make their escape, and find Shawn safe and unharmed.

Scott Free Transcript


Brigitte   The money was rerouted through the Centre’s offices in Omaha and withdrawn electronically. They’re double checking the transfer records. They’re hoping its an accounting error.
Lyle   Jarod stole fifteen million dollars of Centre funds and donated it to charity. The only mistake is rubbing our noses in it. “Your welcome and surprisingly generous donation will help the organisation for years to come.”  “The million dollars will bring much hope and joy to the children. God Bless.” “Prayers be with you. Have a nice day.”
Brigitte   I’ll get him.
Lyle   Please do. Jarod’s a lot more dangerous than I thought.
Jarod   I like ice cream. I really like ice cream.
Phil   There you go Jarod.
Jarod   Thank you Phil. That’s a very interesting device.
Girl   It’s a Whee-lo.
Jarod   And it’s purpose is?

Jarod   So it chases itself in a circle?

Scott   What do you want Nick?
Nick   It’s not what I want. It’s what I need… you.
Scott   Oh you know, no. Not… not this time.
Nick   Opportunity knocks.
Scott   Oh really? ‘Cause you know your last opportunity cost me seven years of my life. Jeez! Come on. Ten months I’ve been out of prison. I… I just got my son back. Okay? I’m not interested.

Scott   Why don’t you get Martinez?
Nick   Dead. He said no.
Scott   Crew?
Nick   The three of us plus one.
Scott   And who opens the safe?
Nick   Trinney’s sending some guy in from Brooklyn. One, um, R.H. Cross.
Scott   Cross? I don’t know him.
Nick   I don’t know him either. Trinney swears by him even though he’s only got one good arm.
Scott   A one armed safe cracker. That’s…
Nick   I’m picking him up at three o’clock at the train station. We start tonight. Here, Scotty, don’t be late.
Scott   Hey! You okay.
Shawn   What’s that?
Scott   It was nothin’. These guys come back and give me a hard time. Hey nothing’s wrong. Hey! All right c ome here.
Jarod   The train station.
Taxi Driver   Leaving town?
Jarod   Business meeting.
Taxi Driver   Yeah? What do you do?
Jarod   I’m a one armed safe cracker.
Taxi Driver   Yeah? Which arm?
Jarod   That’s a good question.
Miss Parker   Jarod’s up to something. I can feel it coming on like the flu.
Sydney   After his recent brush with death perhaps he’s just enjoying life for a bit.
Broots   Maybe he decided to take a vacation.
Miss Parker   Did you eat the whole onion for
Broots   Broots.
Miss Parker   What?
Jarod   Sorry you missed the party in Omaha.
Miss Parker   Jarod. What about Omaha?
Jarod   Whoops! I guess the Centre cut you out of the loop this time. Good thing they sent a replacement.
Sydney   What are you talking about Jarod?
Jarod   I’m talking about the blonde. Five-seven, hundred and twenty pounds, killer legs. You’re not giving up on me, are you Miss Parker?
Miss Parker   You wish.
PA   Your attention please. Announcing the immediate arrival of the Brooklyn Express at Track 16.
Jarod   That’s my train. Gotta go.
Broots   What was that all about?
Miss Parker   That’s what I’d like to know.
Jarod   R.H. Right hand.
Cross   Funny.
Jarod   Don’t look around. We’re being watched.
Cross   Cops?
Jarod   Listen up. I’m only going to say this once. The location’s changed. The new score is in Indianapolis.
Cross   I’m from Flatbush. I don’t know anything about Iowa.
Jarod   Indiana.
Cross   Same thing.
Jarod   I wrote down all the locations, the security codes, the whole deal.
Cross   No no no, this ain’t kosher. I need to call Trinney.
Jarod   You do that and you lose this. You get another packet just like it when the job is finished.
Cross   Target?
Jarod   That’s my business. I’m gonna meet you in four days at the Hotel Argyle in New York. I’ve reserved a room in your name.
Cross   What’s to uh, keep me from walking away with the whole thing?
Jarod   You do that and I’m gonna hunt you down like I did Martinez. Then they’ll be calling you “No Hands”.
Cross   That’s cold.
PA   Your attention please. Announcing the immediate departure of the Indiana Star on track 29.
Jarod   That’s your ride. I want you to leave this at the job.
Cross   What is it?
Jarod   It’s a Hallmark card. Always send the very best. Leave it.
Cross   My tools are in there.
Jarod   Buy new ones. Because every cop along the line is looking for a man with a bum arm carrying a black leather bag. I’ll take the bag and
the heat.
Cross   Yeah? How you gonna do that? See you in New York.
Jarod   See you in New York. See you in New York.
PA   Your attention please. Will Mr Paul Johnson, please meet your party…
Nick   Mr Cross?
Jarod   Call me R.H.
Miss Parker   Why wasn’t I informed about Omaha?
Lyle   No, no, no. Switch those masks, please. With due respect Miss Parker, it’s not my job to inform you of Jarod’s whereabouts. It’s your job to inform me.
Brigitte   According to your file…
Miss Parker   My file?
Brigitte   Correct. According to your file you’ve had Jarod trapped in Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington and Florida. It seems you’ve had ample opportunity to bring him back.
Miss Parker   How would you like me to feed you my file.
Lyle   There’s no reason to be defensive about your shortcomings Miss Parker.
Miss Parker   Moving in?
Lyle   Possession is nine-tenths. Now if you’ll excuse us we have a meeting to attend. Oh, any progress locating your missing father?
Miss Parker   Who says he’s missing?
Lyle   A man packs his belongings and vanishes it’s a logical assumption.
Sydney   You gave that paper weight to your father when you were a little girl.
Miss Parker   I thought he threw it away.
Sydney   I’m sure he’s fine.
Miss Parker   He would never just leave without saying goodbye, would he?
Nick   You’re dead and the rest of us are in handcuffs. Twenty minutes. That’s all the time we’ve got before security guard makes his run. You’re gonna have to work faster to bypass that second alarm.
Scott   I’m working as fast as I can.
Nick   There was a day you could have done this in your sleep. Remember those days Dewey?
Dewey   Scooter was the best I ever saw.
Nick   Sixteen years old, picking combination locks down at the YMCA, stealing wallets and jockstraps. What’d you do with all those jock straps?
Scott   Yeah, that was a long time ago, Nick.
Nick   I took you off the streets. I treated you like you were my own son.
Scott   Yeah! And when the heat was on you hang me out to spend seven years in a federal prison. Forgive me if I don’t shed a tear about how things used to be.
Jarod   I think we should cut him loose. This job is going to be difficult enough in a perfect world. I don’t need a guy with his head half in the game.
Nick   I know him. You on the other hand are a question mark. Should I call Trinney and get another locksmith?
Jarod   Nah!
Nick   Let’s try it again.
Scott   Long night huh?
Jarod   Yeah!
Scott   Let’s pick this up tomorrow night at my place.
Jarod   You got a pen. I’ll, uh, write down the address.
Scott   Yeah.
Jarod   Oh thanks.
Scott   Oh uh, here. Eight one six Highland.
Jarod   Eight one six Highland. “To Dad, Love Shawn”. Is that your son?
Scott   My life. He gave me this for Father’s Day.
Sydney   Come along Jarod.
Young Jarod   Miss Parker just gave that man a present Sydney? Why?
Sydney   It’s Father’s Day Jarod. She gave her father a gift to show how much she loves him.
Officer   You want me to put this out on the
net for you?
Evans   Oh yeah. I want to know who he is and where he comes from. I bet my pension there’s somebody out there looking for this guy.
Scott   The wild card is still going to be the rent-a-cops. Oh, man, I never thought I’d need this again.
Jarod   What? You can’t open a door you blow it off its hinges?
Scott   You never know what you might run into. Sometimes looking dangerous is enough. Shawn, what… what are you doing here?
Shawn   I live here.
Scott   No. No. You know what I mean. You’re supposed to be at Mrs Albertson’s.
Shawn   I went to the shop. They said that you didn’t show up today.
Scott   Oh, no I didn’t because I was….
Jarod   Actually that was my fault. Um….I saw some of the furniture your father built and I insisted we meet right away. The name is Cross.  RH Cross. RH, that stands for Right Hand.
Shawn   What’s that stuff?
Scott   Oh well you, uh, you never mind that stuff.
Shawn   If your probation officer catches you skipping work you’re gonna be in big trouble. I don’t want anything to happen to us.
Scott   Hey, who’s… who’s the father here. Now, I want you to go back to Mrs Albertson’s house and you stay there ‘til I come pick you up.
Shawn   But…
Scott   Just do what I say… Wait, wait, wait. Shawn. Hey, hey , hey. Listen pal, I just… I just need you to cut me a little slack here. Hey! I love you.
Shawn   I love you too. See ya Right Hand.
Jarod   Nice to meet you Shawn. So why are you doing this?
Scott   What?
Jarod   Why are you doing this? You don’t want to be doing it. Which means that Avani’s is holding some kind of big hammer over your head.
Scott   I don’t know. I never knew my parents. Shawn’s mother passed away after he was born and I was sent up a year later, you know. And they just passed Shawn around from family to family, like like I was.
Jarod   But you got him back.
Scott   And I intend to keep him. Shawn needs his father forever.
Sydney   Jarod. You need to finish the last simulation.
Young Jarod   I made this for you Sydney.
Sydney   For me?
Young Jarod   Do you like it?
Sydney   No Jarod, I don’t like it and I don’t want to ever see anything like it again. Let’s get to work.
Lyle   We just received these from our satellite office in Indianapolis.
Brigitte   His name’s RH Cross. He’s a safe cracker from New York.
Miss Parker   And we should be interested because?
Lyle   According to the office Cross’s take was nearly a quarter million dollars. He also left this behind. According to the red notebook Cross was going to rendezvous with Jarod at the Argyle Hotel in New York City.
Miss Parker   Jarod would never leave such an obvious trail.
Brigitte   Cross screwed up and left that behind.
Sydney   That’s quite a reach.
Lyle   According to the security on the ground in Indianapolis Cross was nearly caught. Brigitte go to New York. Find Cross. I still don’t understand the significance of this.
Sydney   Jarod’s sending you two a message.
Lyle   Which is?
Miss Parker   You’re going nowhere fast.
Nick   We got eighteen minutes until the security guard makes his rounds.
Jarod   I don’t like this. That van followed us ever since we left the warehouse. The cop’s have made us.
Nick   If they have then they’re still following Dewey all over the city. I’ve got every contingency covered. Let’s just do it.
Nick   How long?
Jarod   Five minutes.
Nick   You’ve got three. What the hell is that? He’s early.
Scott   Twenty minutes huh?
Jarod   What is it?
Scott   The guard.
Nick   How long before you’re in?
Jarod   Two minutes.
Scott   What are you going to do?
Nick   I’m covering contingencies.
Jarod   I’m in.
Jarod   You stole an electronic key card?
Nick   It opens the federal diamond depository in Wilmington.
Scott   What are you talking about?
Jarod   He’s saying there is no money. Just another job. That’s what this has been about since the very beginning, right?
Nick   Twenty million dollars in raw uncut diamonds. My source says that the stones will spend 36 hours in the vault before distribution. We move on Monday before the offices open up and anyone realises the access card is missing.
Scott   Our deal was one job. I’m out.
Nick   I’m sorry to hear that Scotty. Change your mind the door’s always open.
Jarod   Best laid plans huh? I’ll see you tomorrow.
Nick   Dewey, this is Nick.
Jarod   Hey! You okay?
Scott   Oh, I’m fine. Good.
Jarod   I guess this sort of thing happens when you deal with a piece of work like Avani. What’s wrong?
Scott   This is too easy.
Jarod   What is?
Scott   This. Nick, he would never let me walk out with this much on the line, not unless… You got a car?
Jarod   Yeah, come on.
Scott   Shawn. Shawn. Shawn. Answer me.
Jarod   House is empty.
Nick   I’m really sorry Scotty but there’s no way I can let this opportunity slip away. I need you. And Shawn is safe. How safe he stays is up to you.
Broots   Intelli-research 5 pulled it off the National Police Net.
Sydney   Why would Jarod’s picture be on a law enforcement scan?
Broots   Well according to the background data he’s suspected of being part of a robbery group here in the North East.
Miss Parker   What did you say?
Broots   The initial scan was sent by a detective Harold Evans of the Middletown PD.
Sydney   Middletown? That’s less than a hundred miles from here. The question now is what is Jarod doing associating with a group of street criminals.
Broots   Well actually this crew is slicker than that. They have an MO of targeting high profile, high tech take downs.
Miss Parker   Such as?
Broots   Such as, um, payroll companies, security houses, mostly diamonds.
Miss Parker   Run profiles on all the potential targets within a five hundred mile radius of The Centre. Everything this crew might be interested in and I want everything you can find on this Detective Evans. If he stole a Baby Ruth when he was six I want to know how many nuts it had.
Jarod   I’ve been going over the layout of the vault room. I figure we’ve got a better chance of blowing the inner doors.
Nick   Sounds right. What do you think Scotty?
Scott   I want him back. I’m here right? That’s… that’s what you wanted. Now you give me back my boy.
Nick   Focus, for the kid’s sake. Now these doors are only reinforced steel so we might be able…
Scott   I want to know where my son is. And I want to know right now.
Nick   You pull the trigger on me, you pull the trigger on Shawn.
Jarod   Scotty, let him go.
Scott   Where’s Shawn? Where’s my boy?
Jarod   We finish this job you and Shawn will be back together again, I promise. Give me the gun. Give me the gun.
Scott   Anything happens to my boy, you’ll wish I’d killed you.
Nick   Never underestimate the father-son relationship.
Sydney   Jarod, I, I told you, I can’t accept this.
Young Jarod   But I made it for you.
Sydney   I’m not your father. This card is meant for someone else.
Young Jarod   Don’t you love me Sydney?
Sydney   We have work to do.
Miss Parker   It smells like gin in here.
Evans   What the hell is this?
Miss Parker   I don’t have the time or inclination to banter with you detective so I will get right to the point.
Evans   You got a name?
Miss Parker   Let’s just say that I’m the person who holds your pitiful little life in her hands.
Evans   Is that so?
Miss Parker   You tell me. Go ahead, open it.
Evans   Where’d you get these?
Miss Parker   That’s not important. What is, is that multiple copies are in my possession. Good. You put this picture out on the police net?
Evans   So?
Miss Parker   I want him.
Evans   Can’t help you.
Miss Parker   I want him! Harold. I’m sorry for both our sakes.
Evans   I think I know where they’re gonna hit next.
Miss Parker   Relax your prostate boys. We’ve got Jarod nailed to the wall. The blonde’s gonna bust a G-String when she… What?
Brigitte   Please continue.
Lyle   And while you’re at it, maybe you can explain this.
Brigitte   I spoke to RH Cross in New York. He was sent to rob the Centre’s office in Indianapolis by a man matching Jarod’s description.
Sydney   We did try to warn you about that.
Lyle   And how was Detective Evans?
Miss Parker   You had me followed?
Lyle   Yes I did. And I want to know everything you know and I want to know now.
Miss Parker   Jarod’s become part of a robbery crew. Evans thinks their next target will be the Federal Diamond Depository in Wilmington. I think we should blanket the area and grab the whole bunch on the way in.
Brigitte   I disagree.
Broots   Oh what a surprise.
Sydney   You have a better plan?
Brigitte   You’ve tried an open snare approach before. Jarod’s too smart to let us grab him on the outside. You let him inside the vault, lull him into a false sense of security and take him… clean.
Miss Parker   Why don’t we just mail him the diamonds and call it a day. I know Jarod, the way he thinks.
Brigitte   Yet you still can’t catch him.
Lyle   Ladies! We follow Bridget’s plan. Mr Broots you’ll be given complete control of the security system at the diamond depository.
Broots   You can do that?
Lyle   I suggest you visit the building and begin implementing a total lockdown of the facility.
Sydney   I don’t believe this will work.
Lyle   I think it’s time to end this pursuit of Jarod once and for all.
Miss Parker    You can do that?
Nick   Dewey got these photos of the Depository this morning and the keycard will allow us to penetrate the outside security system.
Jarod   Bodies on the ground?
Nick   Minimal.
Scott   I made the lock system this morning. It’s hard wired infrared.
Nick   Can you beat it?
Scott   Yeah! I can beat it.
Nick   We have no problem then.
Jarod   Oh no. Not now.
Nick   What did you say?
Jarod   Ah Nothing.
Nick   You look a little shook up.
Jarod   No. No I’m fine.
Nick   We’re all set then?
Jarod   Oh no.
    Jarod getting ready for pretend
Broots   The coloured areas represent access points of the depository. When the grid is red the building is locked down. When it’s green obviously it’s, it’s not. My guess is that Jarod and his crew will disarm the video monitoring system as soon as they gain entry but it won’t matter though because I’m the only one with the password to operate the system.
Brigitte   Very impressive Mr Broots.
Lyle   I’m confident that Mr Broots has covered all contingencies.
Miss Parker   Are you confident Mr Broots?
Broots   Here we go!
Scott   We own it.
Miss Parker   All right. They’re inside. Let’s end this.
Brigitte   Not yet.
Miss Parker   Not yet? He’s sitting there waiting for us…
Brigitte   And knowing that gives us the upper hand. The advantage of surprise.
Lyle   Your point?
Brigitte   We have him Mr Lyle. Let’s not make another mistake.
Nick   What is that? What are you doing?
Jarod   I could stop and could explain it to you or I could just do it and get the hell out of here. The choice is yours.
Sydney   Jarod would never have walked in here without a plan to walk out.
Lyle   We stay the course.
Miss Parker   Look, you want to sit on your collective thumbs, fine. I’m going to do my job.
Brigitte   I won’t allow you to compromise this situation.
Miss Parker   You gonna shoot me?
Scott   Done.
Nick   What happened?
Jarod   Drill bit cracked.
Nick   You got another one?
Jarod   Yeah in my bag.
Nick   I’ll get it.
Jarod   No. No No. I’ll get it. I know where it is. Pull out the broken bit.
Nick   Make it fast.
Jarod   Scotty, give me a hand over here will you?
Scott   Yeah, one second. I’m nearly done.
Jarod   Now.
Scott   Yeah, sure.
Nick   Hey! You open these doors.
Jarod   I want Scotty’s son brought back
to him.
Nick   Open the doors.
Scott   What are you doing?
Jarod   Maybe you don’t understand English. I want Shawn released. I know Dewey’s got him so you call him and you tell him to cut him loose.
Nick   You open the door or you die.
Jarod   Go ahead.
Nick   Tell him Scotty.
Scott   Nick don’t.
Jarod   Shoot. You see, sometimes looking dangerous is enough and sometimes it’s not. Now call him! Dial!
Scott   Come on.
Nick   This is Nick. Let the kid go. Yes! Right now!
Jarod   The phone? Mm mm mm. You should have called Trinney.
Nick   Scotty, you let me out of here.
Scott   You know, every night for ah, seven years I thought about, you know, what you were doing. And then when I get out, I finally get my life back, you take my son.
Nick   Scotty that was business.
Scott   This is personal. Let’s get out of here.
Nick   Don’t leave me here Scotty. Scotty! Don’t leave me here! Scotty. Scotty!
Broots   Hey! I got two on the move.
Sydney   Jarod.
Miss Parker   Give me my gun. If you want Jarod, give me my gun.  Tell the sweeper teams to move.
Broots   Wait. What the hell is this? All the access points in the building are unlocking.
Lyle   One area’s still secured? What’s that?
Scott   Shawn! Son? Shawn.
Jarod   Shawn. Shawn!  Scotty!
Scott   Yeah? Shawn. Oh, oh oh. Oh my God! I was like,  so scared, you know. You uh, you okay?
Shawn   I’m okay.
Scott   Yeah, yeah? You’re fine? You’re fine?
Shawn   Dad, don’t make a big deal.
Scott   Oh! Oh!
Jarod   Look, I hate to break this up but don’t you think you two should be hitting the road? Here, take this with you. Don’t worry, it’s money that was owed to me.
Scott   Uh, you know, I don’t understand.
Jarod   Consider it… an early father’s day present. Good luck huh?
Scott   Thanks.
Jarod   Good luck.
Sydney   Sydney.
Jarod   Hope your stay at the depository wasn’t too unpleasant.
Sydney   No. You made quite an impression on the new regime. I hope this doesn’t end up making things harder for you.
Jarod   Well, I appreciate your concern but that’s not why I called. I’ve been thinking… and I was wondering if you ever thought about what it would have been like to have been my father?
Sydney   That was never an option Jarod… so I never allowed myself to even… entertain such a notion.
Jarod   Well thank you Sydney, for your honesty anyway.
