CRIME SOMETIMES PAYS
Staten Island trash couple Kit and Pat pull up in front of a local bank near closing. Pat intends to strike rich by robbing the bank. Kit rejects this idea and storms out of the car but Pat reminds her that this will give them a life with no limitations: something they could share together. Kit reluctantly agrees and waits in the car as Pat heads into the bank.
The robbery goes anything but swift as it becomes evident that Pat wasn’t prepared. Miscommunication between Pat and the teller Margot causes Pat to fumble with his “weapon”, which is revealed to be nothing but a phone. Just as it seems that all is ruined, Kit saves her partner via a phone call. She warns Margot that Pat has an explosive vest attached to him that will be set off unless Margot complies.
As Pat exits and rejoins Kit in the car, their compatibility and status as partners is solidified.
