— Gentlemen, welcome to Las Vegas. Everybody eaten? Good. Everybody sober? Close enough. Alright, before we get started, nobody's on the line here yet. What I'm about to propose to you is both highly lucrative and highly dangerous. If that doesn't seem like your particular brand of vodka, help yourself, there is as much food as you like and have a safe journey. No hard feelings. Otherwise, come with me.
— Gentlemen, the 3000 block of Las Vegas Boulevard, otherwise known as the Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand. Together they're three of the most profitable casinos in Las Vegas. Let me see: this is the vault of the Bellagio, it's located below the strip, beneath 200 feet of solid earth. It safeguards every dime that passes through each of the three casinos above it. And we're gonna rob it.
— Smash-and-grab job, huh?
— Slightly more complicated than that.
— Well, yeah.
— This is courtesy of Frank Catton, a new blackjack dealer at the Bellagio. Ok, bad news first. This place houses a security system that rivals most nuclear missile silos. First, we have to get within the casino cages, which, anybody I'll tell you, takes more than a smile. Next, through these doors each of which requires a different six-digit code changed every 12 hours. Past those, lies the elevator. This is where it gets tricky. The elevator won't move without authorized fingerprint I.D.
— Which we can't fake.
— And vocal confirmation from both the security system within the Bellagio and the vault below.
— Which we won't get.
— Furthermore, the elevator shaft is rigged with motion detectors.
— Meaning, if we were to manually override the lift, the shaft's exit would lock down automatically and we'd be trapped.
— Now, once we get down the shaft, though, then, it's a piece of cake. Just two more guards with Uzis and the most elaborate vault door ever conceived by man. Any questions?
— No, tunneling's out. There are sensors monitoring the ground. A hundred yards in every direction. If a groundhog would've nested there, they'd know about it.
