“Are you out of your mind, Jake? If we get caught here, they’ll add ten years to our sentences.”

“Relax, Hubie. We won’t get caught. Now get off your lazy butt and help me drag the raft higher on the rocks. We’ve got to get it in undercover.”

He was grinning ear to ear when he shot that teller, she couldn’t have been more than twenty, and the railroad worker whose only mistake was to be in the bank depositing his paycheck when The Costanzo Gang walked in to knock over the joint.
