The Asphalt Jungle (1950) Poster

Brad Dexter: Bob Brannom



  • Alonzo D. Emmerich : Shut up.

    Bob Brannom : How's that? No one tells me to shut up.

  • Alonzo D. Emmerich : What if I told you I've got a plan worked out to get it all? I'd tell them that I could fence the stuff myself, you see, promise them cash on delivery. Then when the time comes, I simply wouldn't have the cash, you understand? I'd tell them it'd take a few more days to raise it. I'm certain I could get them to leave the stuff with me while they're waiting.

    Bob Brannom : Go on.

    Alonzo D. Emmerich : Then I'd disappear. I'd take a plane to another country, to another life. The gold and platinum I could melt up and sell as bullion. And the rocks, sell them one a time. Be no hurry, it'd last a lifetime.

    Bob Brannom : How wrong can a guy be? Here I was worrying about your nerves, and you were dreaming up a double cross like this.

  • Alonzo D. Emmerich : Well, how do we raise the money?

    Bob Brannom : Simple. Cobby.

    Alonzo D. Emmerich : Cobby?

    Bob Brannom : Believe me, he can dig it up without half trying.

    Alonzo D. Emmerich : Yes. But what do we tell him? Why would I need money?

    Bob Brannom : Leave it to me. Cobby wants to feel big. Here's his chance: advancing money for the great Alonzo P. Emmerich. Ah, he'll do it. He'll sweat, but he'll do it.

  • Alonzo D. Emmerich : Well, what about my debtors? How many of them came through?

    Bob Brannom : Not a one.

    Alonzo D. Emmerich : What's that?

    Bob Brannom : You want all the excuses? I've got some beauts.
