The two killers plan ahead—
knowing yet not knowing
what Holcomb Kansas has
in store for them…
[Perry sizes up some rope in the
Haines Hardware store, planning
ahead of tying up the Clutters.
The rope, tape bought there
at Haines Hardware—unknowing
accessories to the crime]
Hickcock: It’ll be a simple heist.
Twenty grand in the safe. We’ll
snatch it and head for Mexico!!!
Perry: Yeah, well, we’ll see.
No job’s really easy, ya know.
Perry: Jeez, look at that big old
fuckin church. Built like a goddamn
old limestone French Cathedral.
Hickcock: There’s the local Movie
Palace, the Granada Theater. All
these little fuckin towns got their
churches and movie houses.
Perry: Yeah, they all got their
churches on one side of the
street and their dream palaces
on the other. Both of them
in the same fuckin racket.
Hickcock: Wanna be in a movie?
