Ocean's Eleven (2001) Poster

Brad Pitt: Rusty Ryan



  • Danny : Ten oughta do it, don't you think?

    Rusty : [Stares away in silence] 

    Danny : You think we need one more?

    Rusty : [remains silent with his head leaning on top of his folded arms while hunched over on the bar] 

    Danny : You think we need one more.

    Rusty : [remains silent] 

    Danny : All right, we'll get one more.

    Rusty : [Blinks] 

  • [last minute tips to Linus] 

    Rusty : You look down, they know you're lying and up, they know you don't know the truth. Don't use seven words when four will do. Don't shift your weight, look always at your mark but don't stare, be specific but not memorable, be funny but don't make him laugh. He's got to like you then forget you the moment you've left his side. And for God's sake, whatever you do, don't, under any circumstances...

    Livingston : [from another room]  Rus?

    Rusty : Yeah?

    Livingston : Come look at this?

    Rusty : Sure.

  • Rusty : You scared?

    Linus : You suicidal?

    Rusty : Only in the morning.

  • Reuben : [as Danny and Rusty are leaving Reuben's home after lunch]  Look, we all go way back and uh, I owe you from the thing with the guy in the place and I'll never forget it.

    Danny : That was our pleasure.

    Rusty : I'd never been to Belize.

  • Rusty : I need the reason. Don't say money. Why do this?

    Danny : Why not do it?

    [Rusty shakes his head] 

    Danny : Because yesterday I walked out of the joint after losing four years of my life and you're cold-decking "Teen Beat" cover boys.


    Danny : Because the house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the stakes, the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big, and then you take the house.

    [another pause] 

    Rusty : Been practicing that speech, haven't you?

    Danny : Little bit. Did I rush it? Felt like I rushed it.

    Rusty : No, it was good, I liked it. "Teen Beat" thing was harsh.

  • [while they are watching a dozen Chinese acrobats at a circus] 

    Danny : Which one is the amazing Yen?

    Rusty : [intentionally being vague]  He's the little Chinese guy.

  • Danny : Thirteen million and you drive this piece of shit cross country to pick me up?

    Rusty : [sarcastically]  Blew it all on the suit.

  • Saul : I have a question, say we get into the cage, and through the security doors there and down the elevator we can't move, and past the guards with the guns, and into the vault we can't open...

    Rusty : Without being seen by the cameras.

    Danny : Oh yeah, sorry, I forgot to mention that.

    Saul : Yeah well, say we do all that... uh... we're just supposed to walk out of there with $150,000,000 in cash on us, without getting stopped?

    [pause as everyone turns to look at Danny] 

    Danny : Yeah.

    Saul : [nervously]  Oh. Okay.

  • Rusty : [on Danny walking out of prison in a loosened black-tie suit]  I hope you were the Groom.

    Danny : [on Rusty's attire for picking him up from prison]  Ted Nugent called, he wants his shirt back.

  • Bartender : [over the noise in the background, inside the crowded club]  How's the game going?

    Rusty : Longest hour of my life.

    Bartender : [not hearing him]  What?

    Rusty : I'm running away with your wife.

    Bartender : Great!

    [He grins and flashes Rusty a thumbs-up] 

  • Rusty : [in Rusty's car with Rusty driving]  God, I'm bored!

    Danny : You look bored.

    Rusty : I am bored!

    [long pause] 

    Rusty : How was the clink? You get the cookies I sent?

    Danny : [sarcastically]  Why do you think I came to see you first?

  • Danny : You gotta walk before you crawl.

    Rusty : Reverse that.

  • Reuben : [as Danny and Rusty are leaving Reuben's house after lunch]  Give Dominic your addresses, I got some remaindered furniture I want to send you. Look, just out of curiosity, which three casinos did you geniuses decide to rob?

    Rusty : The Bellagio...

    Danny : The Bellagio, the Mirage, and the MGM Grand.

    Reuben : [drops his fork]  Those are Terry Benedict's casinos.

    Danny : Is that right?

    Rusty : That's right.

    Reuben : You guys, what do you got against Terry Benedict?

    Rusty : What do you have against him, that's the question?

    Reuben : He torpedoed my casino, muscled me out. Now he's gonna blow it up next week to make way for some gaudy monstrosity. Don't think I don't know what you're doing.

    Rusty : What are we doing, Reuben?

    Reuben : If you're gonna steal from Terry Benedict, you'd better goddamn *know*. This sort of thing used to be civilized. You'd hit a guy, he'd whack you, done. But with Benedict... at the end of this, he'd *better* not know you're involved, not know your names or think you're dead, because he'll kill ya, and *then* he'll go to work on ya.

    Danny : That's why we're going to have to be very careful. Very precise.

    Rusty : Mmm, well-funded.

    Reuben : Yeah. Ya gotta be *nuts*, too. And you're gonna need a crew as *nuts* as you are!


    Reuben : So who've you got in mind?

  • [last lines] 

    [Danny has just got out of jail] 

    Danny : Hi!

    Tess : [in Rusty's car]  Hi. We need to get Rusty a girl.

    Rusty : [jokingly]  There's a women's prison down the road.

    Danny : [noticing Tess is wearing her wedding ring]  You said that you sold this.

    Tess : I said that.

    Danny : Liar.

    Tess : Thief.

    [they kiss] 

  • Rusty : [upset after having realizing Danny lied to him]  Tell me this is not about her, or I am walking. I am walking off this job right now.

    Danny : Who?

    Rusty : Tess. Terry Benedict. Tell me this is not about screwing the guy who's screwing your wife.

    Danny : Ex-wife.

    Rusty : Tell me.

    Danny : It's not about that.


    Danny : It's not entirely about that.

    [Rusty turns away, furious] 

    Danny : Russ, do you remember what we said back when we first got into this business. We said we were gonna play the game...

    Rusty , Danny : Like we had nothing to lose.

    Danny : Well, I lost something... I lost someone. That's why I'm here.

    [long pause] 

    Rusty : Okay, here's the problem. We're stealing two things. And when push comes to shove, and you can't have both, which are you gonna choose? And remember - Tess does not split eleven ways!

  • Rusty : [in an empty office after business hours]  You'd need at least a dozen guys doing a combination of cons.

    Danny : Like what, do you think?

    Rusty : Off the top of my head, I'd say you're looking at a Boeski, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the biggest Ella Fitzgerald ever.

  • [discussing possible candidates for their crew] 

    Danny : Phil Turenteen...

    Rusty : Dead.

    Danny : No shit. On the job?

    Rusty : Skin cancer.

    Danny : Did you send flowers?

    Rusty : Dated his wife for a while.

  • Rusty : [impersonating a doctor, referring to Saul pretending to be dead]  I'm sorry. He's gone.

    Virgil Malloy : [as he and Turk enter, impersonating paramedics]  Man, I told you to run.

    Turk Malloy : Don't do that.

    Virgil Malloy : What, I didn't tell you to run?

  • [masquerading as an A.T.F. agent, Rusty shoves Basher against a police car, pretending to search him] 

    Rusty : [under his breath]  Hey, Bash.

    Basher : Hey, Russ.

    Rusty : How fast can you put something together from what I just slipped you?

    Basher : It's done.

    [Rusty lifts up Basher, and they slowly leave the crime scene] 

    Basher : Hey, is Danny about?

    Rusty : Yeah, he's waiting around the corner.

    Basher : Oh, that's terrific! It will be nice working with proper villains again.

    Rusty : [turns and shouts]  Everybody down, now!

    [they break into a run as explosions rock the crime scene] 

    Basher : Ha-ha-ha! They weren't expecting that shit!

    Rusty : Nice work.

    Basher : Oh, thank you.

  • Linus : [excited assuming the heist is going to be easy]  Smash and grab job, huh?

    Rusty : Slightly more complicated than that.

    Linus : Well, yeah.

  • [Yen slides down into the hole in the cart] 

    Rusty : [intentionally irritating him but jokingly]  Amazing. You okay? You want something to read, a magazine or something?

    [Yen's hand pops out of the hole, giving Rusty the finger] 

    Rusty : Okay.

  • Saul : [at the race track]  I saw you at the paddock... before the second race, outside the men's room when I placed my bet. I saw you before you even got up this morning.

    Rusty : How you been, Saul?

    Saul : Never better.

    Rusty : What's with the orange?

    Saul : My doctor says I need vitamins.

    Rusty : So why don't you take vitamins?

    Saul : You come here to give me a physical?

  • Danny : [watching the monitors]  Why do they always paint hallways that color?

    Rusty : They say taupe is very soothing.

  • Topher Grace : [while walking through the hallways of a club]  Hey, Rus, let me ask you a question. Are you incorporated? Well, if not, you should really think about it, 'cause I was talking to my manager...

    Rusty : Bernie?

    Topher Grace : No, not Bernie, my business manager. You know what? They're both named Bernie. Anyway, he was saying that because what we do here is kind of like research for a future, like, gig or whatever, I can totally make it a tax write-off. The only thing is I'd have to pay you by check.

    [Rusty stops and looks at him] 

    Topher Grace : Or we could stick to cash.

    [Rusty nods] 

    Topher Grace : You know what? Yeah, let's just stick to cash.

  • Danny : We'll need Saul.

    Rusty : He won't do it. He got out of the game a year ago.

    Danny : Get religion?

    Rusty : Ulcers.

    Danny : ...You could ask him.

    Rusty : Hey, I could ask him.

  • Danny : [over the radio]  Livingston, we're set.

    Rusty : [over the radio]  Livingston, we're set.

    Livingston : [over the radio]  Basher, we're set.

    Basher : [over the radio]  Hang on a minute chief.

    Livingston : [over the radio]  We don't have a minute, Yen's gonna suffocate.

    Basher : [preparing to detonate the pinch]  Well, then you'd better leave off bothering me, don't you think?

  • Topher Grace : [during the celebrity card game]  Mr Ocean, what do you do for a living? If you don't mind me asking.

    Danny : Why would I mind you asking? Two cards. I just got out of prison.

    Topher Grace : Really?

    Joshua Jackson : Well, why were you in prison?

    Danny : I stole things.

    Shane West : You stole things? Like jewels?

    Rusty : Incan matrimonial headmasks.

    Shane West : Any money in those? Incan matrimonial...

    Danny : Headmasks. There's some.

    Rusty : Don't let him fool you, there's boatloads. If you can move them. I'll take one. But you can't.

    Danny : My fence seemed confident enough.

    Rusty : Dealing in cash, you don't need a fence.

    Danny : [referring to Rusty]  Some people lack vision.

    Rusty : [sarcastically]  Probably everybody in cell block E.

  • Rusty : [at the race track]  Saul, you're the best there is. You're in Cooperstown. What do you want?

    Saul : Nothing. I've got a duplex now, wall-to-wall, goldfish. I'm seeing a nice lady who works the "Unmentionables" counter at Macy's. I've changed.

    Rusty : Guys like us don't change, Saul. We either stay sharp or we get sloppy, we don't change.

  • Rusty : Saul, turn that off, will you?

    Saul : [in fake accent]  I'll turn it off when I'm ready to...

    Rusty : Saul!

    Saul : [normal voice]  It's off, it's off!

  • Rusty : Wonder what Rueben'll say.

    Reuben : [Cut to Rueben]  You're outta your goddamn minds!

  • Terry : [over the phone]  All right. Now I have complied with your every request, would you agree?

    Rusty : I would.

    Terry : Good, 'cause now I have one of my own. Run and hide, asshole. Run and hide. If you should be picked up next week buying a hundred-thousand dollar sports car in Newport Beach, I am going to be supremely disappointed. Because I want my people to find you, and when they do, rest assured we are not going to hand you over to the police. So my advice to you again is this: run and hide. That is all that I ask.

  • [teaching poker to young actors] 

    Rusty : Barry, your turn.

    Barry Watson : Uh... four.

    Rusty : You don't want four. You want to fold.

    Barry Watson : I do? Is that a good thing?

    Rusty : [takes Barry's cards and turns them down]  You're done.

  • Linus : The last guy they caught cheating in here? Benedict not only sent him up for 10 years, he had the bank seize his house and then he bankrupted...

    Rusty , Linus : -his brother-in-law's tractor dealership.

    Rusty : Yeah, I heard.

  • Rusty : [in disguise wearing a wig and glasses]  Did someone call for a doctor?

  • [On the phone] 

    Terry : Who the hell is this?

    Rusty : The man who's robbing you!

  • [teaching poker to young Hollywood actors] 

    Rusty : Shane, you've got three pairs. You can't have six cards! You can't have six cards in a five-card game!

  • Shane West : Hit me.

    Rusty : It's not blackjack.

  • Explosives Cop : That's all you used in the event, nothin' else?

    Basher : Hang on, are you accusing me of boobytrapping?

    Explosives Cop : Well, how about it?

    Rusty : [masquerading as an ATF agent]  Booby traps aren't Mr. Tarr's style. Isn't that right, "Basher"?

    [shows a badge] 

    Rusty : Peck, ATF. Let me venture a guess, simple g form mainliner, backwound, quick fuse with a drag under 20 feet? Yeah... let me ask you something else: did you search this scumbag for booby traps, on his person? I mean really search, not just for weapons?

    [cop shakes head no] 

    Rusty : Stand back.

    [shoves Basher against cop car] 

    Basher : Oy. Here we go.

    Rusty : Go find Griggs, tell him I need to see him.

    Explosives Cop : Who?

    Rusty : Just find him, will ya?

  • Rusty : [finalizing their plans to rob three casinos]  The Bellagio and the Mirage. These are Terry Benedict's places.

    Danny : Yes they are. You think he'll mind?

    Rusty : [sarcastically]  More than somewhat.
